Astrology Book Reviews

Book Name The Book of Pluto

- by Steven Forrest; review by Kris Brandt Riske, MA, PMAFA
There's no denying it: The Book of Pluto is as powerful as the planet with the same name. But, its real beauty lies in the fact that it's a book written with both the astrologer and non-astrologer in mind. Anyone with birthchart in hand can benefit from the wisdom and insight Steven Forrest brings to Pluto - no astrological knowledge required. Basic explanations of aspects, transits and progressions make it easy for anyone to gain all this book has to offer.

The author begins by exploring and discussing Pluto and its symbolism as a planet of repression, wounds, passion and intensity. With this thorough grasp of the planet's basic nature, the reader moves on to Pluto in the signs, in aspect to other planets and in the houses, including the individual's high destiny, distorting wound, navigational error, healing method and energizing vision. More than a traditional "cookbook," this book offers practical, concrete solutions - here's what wrong and here's how to deal with it.

Equally practical and useful is the section on transits and progressions, and the events surrounding their contact with natal planets. As is the norm throughout the book, the author offers real-life practical examples, including the upside and the downside of these contacts.

Aside from the knowledge to be gained from this book, one of the best reasons to add it to your collection is the author's clever, witty and easy-flowing style. You won't be able to put it down, except possibly to pick up one of his other titles: The Book of Jupiter, The Book of Neptune, The Inner Sky, The Changing Sky, Skymates and The Night Speaks.




Consciousness and the Midheaven - by Stephanie Jean Clement

Ask an astrologer to list the important factors to consider when reading a horoscope, and he or she will, at a minimum, usually cite the Sun, Moon, eight planets, the Ascendant, and the Midheaven. Why then has so little been written about the Midheaven, the highest and most prominent point in the horoscope?

This void in astrological literature has finally been filled by Stephanie Clement's thought-provoking and in-depth volume, Consciousness and the Midheaven, in which she combines a thorough knowledge of astrology with her equally outstanding skill as a psychologist (she holds a Ph.D. in the field).

While it might be unrealistic to expect the delineation of a single horoscopic point and its sign to capture the essence of the individual, that is exactly what the author has done - and phenomenally so. In doing so she has proved her point: The Midheaven is a key factor in defining ego-consciousness (awareness of self and others) and how the individual comes to self-awareness and true consciousness.

Written in easy to understand terminology with many practical examples, each sign is fully examined from the perspective of the Midheaven as a distinct and separate point in the horoscope. The all-encompassing discussion of each sign includes basic delineation, fundamental expression, how resistance is likely to manifest, how enlightenment and realization can be easily pursued, how to cultivate the capacity to respond instead of react, how knowledge of what creates and what is created is learned, how to understand personal creative potential, and how to affect the expression of free will.

A must for anyone seeking a key understanding of the horoscope, Consciousness and the Midheaven goes beyond insightful knowledge to bring a refreshing, stimulating volume of information to student and professional alike.
