Thanks for your impeccable research!
I am at a point in my life now where I really want to be as informed as possible about which direction to take and where my strengths lie. This book has something for the beginning and the advanced student, as there are things she described that am I still learning about - for example, royal fixed stars. I am sure I will be returning to this book again and again, for myself and for guidance for my clients. I'm thankful for a such a comprehensive resource on the Midheaven, all in one book.
Granted, you seem to have come up with a very novel system with regard to career and finding success, but your execution of that system is way off the mark. You outline your 12-step process, but the specifics of each step are not clearly explained anywhere in your book. For example, Step 6 states: "Determine the aspects the Principal Planet makes." Ok, fine. I have those. Step 3 states: "Note any planets in the 10th House." Ok, I have no planets there... Now where are the interpretations of these aspects and non-tenanted 10th House according to the Slevin System? Nowhere to be found in this book, folks.
Here's what I got out of this book: My midheaven is Scorpio, Principal Planet is Saturn conjunct the midheaven by less than a degree. The ruler of the Midheaven is Pluto, which is conjunct both Saturn and my Midheaven, so I have a "beholding" aspect that indicates that I'm a "poster child for success" and "Fate will enable me to reach the top" through an express elevator. I guess that's all I need to know then, right? Well, it's certainly not happening right now, which is why I bought your book so that it would guide me on the right path. All I got was a jumbled mess with words and chart examples that are serving to blow my ship off-course.
Your chart examples are beautifully written and all, but they do not encompass or explain each step of your system in its totality. More cookbook-style interpretations are needed, and I mean "cookbook" not in the sense of one-line interpretations. I'm referring to a more in-depth analysis of each planetary aspect as it relates to the Midheaven, possibly with each MC aspect taking up a paragraph or so in length. Perhaps an updated version of this book should be written with the interpretations at the end of the book? I don't know, but your chart example style of delivery is very ineffective, and I really hate how a lot of astrology books out there are leaning towards that trend. Instead of writing about historical figures (people who are now dead), why don't you try writing for the people who are currently alive and trying to find their way towards success?
