Praise for The Soul Speaks “Mark Jones brings a rare combination of talents to astrology. He is a professionally trained therapist in the UK, as well as a practicing astrologer. More that, Mark is an astrologer-priest, a seeker of soul, concerned with the spiritual aspirations of those he works with. In The Soul Speaks, he addresses the need to bring soul back into the consultation. He sees psychological astrology and therapy as natural allies in the exploration of the psyche. His empathy and willingness to go to places that others may shy away from shines through in the fine writing of this book. In addition, he makes a fundamental point: any astrological encounter has a therapeutic component whether this is the intention of the astrologer or not. He argues that all kinds of astrology from horary to humanistic should include basic notions of counseling and transference.” -Lynn Bell, author of Planetary Threads
“Mark Jones is a psychotherapist of rare ability and perception who uses astrology to get to the heart of a client’s issues, life processes, and potentials. At a time when archaic approaches to astrology are being used for natal consultations, it’s now more important than ever to have client-focused astrologers like Mark Jones who bring compassion and psychological insight to the consulting room. This book gives us an opportunity to see how he does what he does so well.” -Frank C. Clifford, astrologer, lecturer and author of Getting to the Heart of Your Chart
“The Soul Speaks offers invaluable insights for astrologers who work directly with clients. Mark Jones details counseling concepts as well as translates astrological principles as facets of the therapeutic narrative. Through this, the reader comes to a greater understanding not only of why it is so important to honor the interpersonal dynamics that occur in a reading, but how to navigate them, so as to be of greater service to those seeking guidance.” –Stephanie Gailing, MS, author of Planetary Apothecary
