by Lindsay River (Author), Sally Gillespie (Author). Written for women, and for men who honor womanhood and female experience,² The Knot of Time transforms traditional interpretations of the aspects of the horoscope ‹ the signs of the zodiac, the planets, and the elements ‹ and reclaims a lost heritage of history and mythology.

The Knot of Time is subtitled: Astrology and the Female Experience but I think it transcends that implied limitation. The writing is universal in tone although the writers defer to the feminine pronouns. Authors Lindsay River and Sally Gillespie discuss Astrology as "not only a science for the study of planetary movements but also an art of interpretation and a philosophy, a system of understanding both the cosmos and the individual self. The book contains separate chapters on astrological theory, history, and the planets, signs and houses and ends with aspects and synthesis.

Comments to eBook The Knot of Time: Astrology and Female Experience

If you are interested in astrology, and the myths and archetypes that inform it, this is the book for you. It serves as a readable introduction to the basic components of a horoscope (planets, signs, houses and aspects) but goes beyond the banal, reductive stereotypes typical of so many books and internet sites.

I personally find the narrative in the brief prologue and epilogue less successful, but the meat of the book more than makes up for it. The restoration of a female perspective means that the authors have looked behind the clichés and restored the subtlety of this ancient wisdom about the human psyche. Behind the 'Martial' Roman archetype of the planet Mars, for example, they suggest there lies the earlier prototype of the spring 'vegetation gods' who were worshipped throughout the Near East and whose courage - and transcendence - lay in a symbolic sacrifice for the good of the land.

The book is full of historical and cultural tidbits which weave a rich web of connections and symbols back into a subject that, sometimes, seems a little threadbare from overuse.

I read this book with pleasure. I not only was reading the book but I was feeling it. I can't really pinpoint what made me feel so, maybe because the book was written by two women or because they were capable to put depth and warmth to words. Whatever it is in this book, I would recommend for anyone interested in Astrology with a female point of view.
