“The North Node is the single most important point in the chart...it describes what your Soul wants to learn and experience in this life. It is a Soul Messenger.”
An invisible magnetic field warps the natal chart. This field is the karmic past life story which is embedded within the chart, in the “chart behind the chart.” The North and South Nodes tell the story of our karmic past, but we can choose not to be bound by it and not to let our default patterns continue to cause us suffering.
I do astrology readings by a simple free recording line or by Zoom (where I can show you the charts as we talk, and create a recording.) Either way is fine. The session is about an hour long. Afterwards I 'll send you a printable copy of your chart and a recording of our session. I use the birth and transit charts and pay particular attention to the the North Node and South Nodes, which is my specialty. I ask for an email letter ahead of our session so I can focus on your unique concerns about relationships, career, anxiety, life/soul direction or simply the feeling of being stuck. Personal Readings are $150 and can usually be done within a week.
Email me at email@example.com to set up our session telling me days/times you're available within the week. My work times are between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm EST. Wk-ends included! (Remember time zones when we set up our appointment) International calls are free and recorded as well. I will send you your Zoom link the day before our session.
Professional astrologer and Jungian psychotherapist, Elizabeth Spring, weaves together the astrological wisdom of the North and South Nodes along with insights on life direction and soul purpose, from twenty five years experience as an astrologer. In her book: "North Node Astrology" and in her astrology readings you learn how to find and understand your own karmic Nodes as well as the life-changing transits that impact your life direction, soul purpose, career and relationships.
This is my most popular book! And if you want to understand what I do in a reading, you could read this first.
I can usually do your astrology reading within a few days of your inquiry. The Reading is based on your birth chart and transits & progressions, with particular attention to the North & South Nodes. Please write me an email first to ElizabethSpring@aol.com to give me times you are available for our recorded Zoom session which lasts about an hour. I work most days between 9:00 am - 1:00 pm EST so tell me what time zone you are in! I will reply to your email right away and after we've set our time, come back and pay for your reading. Then please send me a 2nd email telling me a little about yourself and your concerns now--even if all you feel is "stuck" that is enough. We will cover it all: relationships, career, health, and more. Be sure to include your birthday, place and time of birth in this email. International calls are not a problem! I do many.
Many people like to have a follow-up after the first session, and if it's within a year, this is the fee. Again, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with available times, your birth info, and concerns.

Astrologer Steven Forrest's review of "Astrology for the Third Act of Life"
"Elizabeth's given those of us who past mid-life a lovely, poetic -- and ultimately encouraging -- road map for the years ahead. What I like best is that she's done it honestly too, without taking cheap refuge in any happy-face platitudes. I am always delighted to see astrology presented in such an intelligent way instead of being saddled with the usual market-place trivialities."

The Saturn Returns, at ages 29 and 59, profoundly changes everyones life. Drawing on her experiences as an astrologer and memoir writer, Elizabeth has created an inspiring story of 2 women going through their Saturn Returns: Isabelle age 59 and Sophie age 29. There is also a non-fiction section where you can learn about Saturn in your chart and life. Written for astrologers and non-astrologers alike, this book can be an inspiration to help you move through one of life's toughest transitions.
This book is both biography and memoir. This true story is based on the lives of Annie Besant, Krishnamurti and the author. What happens when you discover a person in history whose life radically changes yours? What happens when your beliefs in reincarnation, synchronicity and fate come alive? Annie Besant was a woman whose life story was erased in history, but Elizabeth has brought Annie and Krishnamurti to life again in a most unusual way.
Why is the North Node the Most Important Point in the Whole Chart? Why do you need to know it?
The North Node is the “prescription” you need for the challenges in your birth chart; it’s the soul remedy for the karmic challenges you came into this life with as shown by your South Node, which can be seen as the “diagnosis.” In effect, the Nodes simplify the whole chart into "the South Node summarizes the problem; and the North Node summarizes the solution."
The Nodes point to your optimal life direction and soul purpose and are based on the idea of reincarnation, and that your Soul chose the time and place to be born into so that you would grow and experience certain things in this lifetime. The South Node is what you came into this life with, and it’s read from the viewpoint of what you didn’t get right in the last life and what you suffered from. You know how to do the South Node because it’s your default pattern in this life still, as an old habit. But it doesn’t serve you anymore. It takes courage and a willingness to try something new—to do the North Node remedy.
People make astrology seem more complicated than it needs to be. Sure, one needs to learn the basic language of the planets, signs and aspects, and the underlying principles, but it isn’t as complicated to understand if you are simply looking for what you need to do to make your life better and more in alignment with your Soul Purpose. It’s in that nugget of information in your North Node.
Doesn’t your Sun sign say everything? Not at all. It describes your personality. And you probably know that already. What about the Moon? It describes your emotional life, and the Rising Sign describes the persona-mask you show the world and your style of doing things. But none of these are as important for you to know as your North Node.
How does it work? Well, look at your chart and find the sign your North Node is in, and read about what the highest expression of that sign is about. That is your personal true North; your compass. (Remember that the glyph for the North Node looks like earphones, and the South Node looks like a horseshoe.) Then look at the planet that rules that sign and see what it’s doing in your chart, for a little more information. Then find the area of your life where your karmic North Node work is most relevant; that’s the house it’s in. Read about all the expressions of that house. Now you know what and where—look next to see if there are planets conjunct either the North or South Node and read about what those planets mean—throw them into the alchemical stew we are making.
This is where you may need help from an astrologer to more fully understand what those added planets mean to your story, and also if there are squares to the Nodes creating a “skipped step.” There are nuances and permutations which are fascinating to learn, but if you simply want the basics it’s as simple as knowing the sign and house.
You are creating an alchemical stew here and it requires a quality of intuition to bring the nodal story together…to take the intuitive leap that brings signs, houses, planets and aspects together. I guess that’s what keeps us astrologers in business! It does get nuanced and it’s not easy to read the story for yourself; but it is what evolutionary astrologers such as Steven Forrest and many of us do. We can look at your Nodes and see where there is “gold” or goodness in the South Node past life story, and we can adjust the interpretation of your Nodal story so you can see it in light of your whole chart.An astrology reading is an excellent idea. However, the basic information is there in your chart, in the Nodes, to see for free. It’s the gold in your chart and it’s worth having a compass in this life--it’s worth having a prescription for healing. It can change your life. It changed mine and that's why I call my work: North Node Astrology.

I've often thought of myself as being "the reluctant astrologer" because I don't believe in any kind of "fated" astrology, but I've found that astrology simply works. However the kind of astrology I practice does not diminish your free will, but helps you look at your life direction and soul purpose.
