If you are looking for a jewel of a book on the mysterious Nodes of the Moon, pick up a copy of this book. It is a wonderful choice for intermediate and advanced astrologer who wants to have a better understanding of the lore and workings of the Moon's Nodes. Borstein wisely incorporates both the Western and Hindu perspectives, giving this book a well-rounded, satisfying book at a subject that has been in the dark for too long.
Borstein's style is both intellectual and accessible, with a friendly flavor to her phrasing. She clearly knows her stuff but never talks down. Her European upbringing and open worldview make her book not only interesting but also pleasant to read. She begins with the facts and mythology behind the Nodes. This is technical stuff you should pay close attention to, as I have heard many say that they don't use the Moon's Nodes because they don't find them useful. It may just be that not enough information has been available in the past to fully appreciate their contribution to the astrological process!
The bulk of the book is a description of the Nodes through the planets and houses, but it is far from being a cookbook. Each section, approximately 15 to 20 pages, gives examples of how the Nodes manifest through the Nodes manifest through each sign and placement. A thorough case study is given for those who want to go through the steps of nodal interpretation. The book concludes with several useful appendices, including a glossary and an ephemeris of the Nodes and eclipses, 1900-2050. This book is a good value and should prove to be an excellent tool for astrologers who want to bring the Moon's Nodes to life in their work!
