Karmic astrology believes that there is a purpose to incarnation, a Soul intention to grow and evolve. But can we ascertain our true purpose from the Chart and are there other factors that can intervene? To bring greater clarity to our Soul’s journey, Judy will consider it from a higher vibrational level as well as from the placement of the Moon/Saturn/Neptune and the North and South Nodes, to help us understand the challenges, expectations and ingrained patterns shown in the Chart and the karmic lessons to be learned.
