I just finished my second read of this book. As a student of ancient and traditional astrology I found this work to be very helpful. It takes the reader on a step by step process of chart delineation using primarily Hellenistic and also some modern methods. The main focus is on an understanding of the natal chart and forecasting the future using profections, progressions, solar return and transits.This is a rich book that provides a full understanding of astrological logic and divination. This text can also serve as an excellent companion to understanding and using classical texts.

I had the pleasure of meeting the author at a conference not long ago and was impressed by her depth of knowledge and understanding of astrology, so I decided to order this book. It arrived today and I couldn't put it down till I had read it quickly cover to cover to get an overview of her approach to chart interpretation. This is a wonderful blend of Hellenistic and modern techniques presented in a clear and understandable manner. There is no dogmatism her but instead a down-to-earth and practical approach to reading a chart, especially as part of an astrological consultation. My next step will be to read the text again in a more careful and detailed manner. All in all, this is one of the most useful and informative astrology books I have read in a long time. Highly recommended.

If you already saw the benefits of traditional astrology, you might find this book a very neat clean and systematic approach for analyzing a chart. This is not a beginner book and you should have good knowledge of the zodiac and astrological techniques first. But this book will help you to design your own counselling session very effectively. I wish Demetra writes some more about the type of clients and type of counsellors in the future too. One of my all time favourite books and I highly recommend it.

This is the book I wish I had found years ago. If you are a beginner with a serious interest in traditional astrology, or a modern psychological astrologer looking for something a bit more technical and objective in the way of traditional astrology, this is it.
As of 2016 there are very few books easy-reading books out there that really put traditional astrology into a practical, digestible usable context. Don't get me wrong, the works of Dr Dykes are amazing, but like current the Valens and Firmicus translations, just not the easiest to read. That part doesn't really bother me so much as the lack of linear teaching style one finds in this book. Unlike Burk, this is real-deal traditional astrology. Powerful techniques. Great teacher. Great writer. Masterful work.
