    We don’t know each other personally, yet as a fellow Moon in Leo (with an Aries Ascendant) your approach to astrology, writing style, as well as your literacy biography reminds me in many ways myself. I dare say that I’m very choosy when it comes to reading what others write and I find your blog articles particularly engaging and also inspiring. For this reason, I would like to nominate you for the Blogger Recognition Award.

    I have posted a link on my blog to your blog:

    Michelle, did you study all of that just this week?! Sounds so interesting. I love Mark Jones’ stuff. I wish I could get some info on planets conjunct the North Node – I see the stuff by Mark Jones and Steven Forrest on planets with the South Node or square the Nodes, but nothing on the NN conjunct. Do you know of anything that talks about that?

    • Hi Iomo,

      Yes, I did! I plowed through a lot of material last week. I felt inspired to take in a lot of information.

      I like Mark Jones’s stuff too. I’ve been thinking about trying one of his courses. I really want to read his book on planetary nodes.

      Steven Forrest has a bunch of MP3s on his website. Just go to the learn / online study / special topics section.

        thanks Michelle, love the Virgo traits!
