Customer Reviews

This book goes deeper than most, and is in fact, a bit thick, but it's well worth the wade!
Amy Herring
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in expanding their concept and meaning of Pluto's evolutionary path in a chart.
J. Bobbitt
This book is such a comprehensive method in understanding where you are coming from and what your destiny is in this life.

With the publishing of Pluto: The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul (Jeffrey Wolf Green) more than 20 years ago, the astrological world moved into a new era of chart interpretation that captured an individual's psyche--past, present and future--like never before. Not a "cookbook" of descriptive key words and phrases, Evolutionary Astrology (EA) as realized and developed by Jeffrey over the years has given astrological counselors real tools to help their clients deal with their emotional, psychological, intellectual and spiritual dimensions in a way that produces real soul growth.

Now, with Evolutionary Astrology: Pluto and Your Karmic Mission, Jeffrey's daughter Deva brings her own unique insights to the understanding and practice of evolutionary astrology. Not only did Deva formally study EA with her father, while she was growing up she saw it in action on a daily basis and osmosed (Pluto) a great deal of knowledge and understanding in a way that others have not been exposed to, and this deep understanding is reflected in her first work on EA.

In addition to her refreshingly youthful, yet deep, insight into EA, Deva reveals the evolution of the EA paradigm itself and brings the principles of evolutionary astrology to life thru copious examples that astrologers can use to illuminate their own chart readings.

Deva has expanded the descriptions of the four evolutionary stages (of consciousness), one of the core teachings of EA, and has provided many examples of how to apply the stages to a birth chart in numerous places throughout the book. Her descriptions of the core archetypes for each house, sign and corresponding planet both review and build on the original Pluto material in easy-to-understand and apply descriptions and principles.

As with those great teachers whose vibrations impact many in highly individual ways, Jeffrey Wolf Green's retirement from teaching was cause for considerable sorrow and regret for his students. Fortunately for us all, in the years leading to Wolf's gradual withdrawal from the demands of active teaching, he was joined in his work by his daughter, Deva, then in her late 20s I think. Deva's apprenticeship was a decision she herself made after exploring higher education and other avenues. When she began to study with her father (and her mother, also a fine evolutionary astrologer), Deva had close and full access, a sincere and genuine interest and a modest sense of her grasp of the material. Over the years, she has blossomed into an exceptional astrologer, counselor, author and teacher of depth and presence.
Her book adds stunning clarity and simplicity to the sometimes complex teachings of her father. Hearing as he did and does continually from every chakra of a risen kundalini, Jeffrey can see and teach things that require a rare consciousness to understand. I say that speaking for myself as a student who needed years to osmose these teachings and begin to be able to help others in a meaningful way with this beautiful astrology. Osmosis is a Pluto kind of thing and that's what it takes to grow into the understandings organically. But Deva brings a clarity and spirit of ease and play with insights that were clearly her Soul's before it brought her to join her father this time as his daughter. For those who have struggled with Wolf's two volumes, Pluto I and II as we call them, Deva's clarity will be a welcome relief. And, she's teaching. Astrologers and seekers can find her online and her school is based in Ashland, Oregon. Just Google for Evolutionary Astrology or Deva Green. Expect the infinite.

I begin by infinitely thanking Jeffrey Wolf Green for his enormous gift of evolutionary astrology and as an eternal beginning student in this profound path I embrace every tool to increase my understanding.
That being said I was very pleased to see Deva Green's contribution and based on the glowing reviews looked forward to reading and studying her book. In this review I will engage two of its fundamental aspects: Content and Style. As far as Content is concerned it is obvious that she has assimilated her fathers work with a depth of understanding and intuitive knowledge that clearly demonstrates a connection to the work going back far beyond this life time. Therefore as a resource and treatise on the subject it is invaluable and covers a range of topics with great depth and detail.
But when it comes to style I found the book incredibly dry and mechanical. In a sense this book is a towering study of the human soul but completely lacks "soul" in its delivery. I felt as if I was reading a medical encyclopedia it is so impersonal. Now this does not mean I don't value it - what I am doing is reading it very, very slowly - one or two pages a day so I can properly absorb the material.
There is no doubt that as her fathers successor Deva Green will go far in spreading the teachings of Evolutionary Astrology - and as she matures and develops a more personal voice we will hopefully see works that are not only erudite but a joy to read.

Format: Paperback
"Pluto and Your Karmic Mission" is so much more than the title presents. Written with concise attention to detail in a clear approach, Deva wastes no words or adds no confusion, leaving even the most unenlighted reader of human nature completely clear and amazed at the depth of knowledge. This is the ultimate book on character analysis and will likely end up as a classic in astrology. It is "must have" for any psychologist, social worker or even those remotely interested in human nature and a universal perspective. As a beautiful and stunning source of truth and guidance it far surpasses the old worn out repititous astrology of the ancients and brings fresh, new insights not only for EA astrologers and those interested in the subject, but for everyone in any type of healing and serving profession. Deva Green is a Master and a perfect example of what a soul should be, moving through our world today.
