Well known and respected internationally for her ground breaking work in Archetypes of the Zodiac, Kathleen Burt now offers us a phenomenal distillation of her life work in: Beyond the Mask: The Rising Sign, Creativity and Spirituality in the Second Half of Life, Part I: Aries – Virgo.
Beyond the Mask illustrates how midlife urgings bring forth cycles of death and rebirth. Antiquated identities and roles must die, old ‘masks’ must be peeled away before we can discover a new path in life. Kathleen Burt addresses specifically how each of the rising sign patterns guide us into new life and fresh experiences.
With the keen eye of an astrologer examining the biography of creative writers and inspired people, Kathleen Burt brings a depth of understanding to the Rising Sign. This unique volume of wisdom offers decades of scholarly study and practical experience in esoteric astrology, psychology, mythology, and biography and examines the underlying archetypal patterns inherent in our lives.
Beyond the Mask come highly recommended for community library collections, for those interested in astrology, and also for readers who are interested in archetypal or depth psychology.
