Without a doubt, one of the most profound astrological books I've read. Clear and well written, this book explores a recent astronomical find, Orcus. Twin to Pluto, Jeremy Neal tells us that one must first do the hard and cleansing work of Pluto, a task that many but not all are called to in a lifetime. If this spiritual work is completed, then Pluto's twin, Orcus, becomes effective, cleansing and isolating, taking one into the realm of silence and separation from the collective.

On this journey, soul becomes embodied. One develops integrity and expresses the authentic self.

I enjoyed author Jeremy Neal's realistic understanding of the role most astrology plays in a life: focusing on the mundane with hindsight so that we see the wake of events, but never the leading edge. That's not available until one crosses over the boundary from ego activity to soul embodiment. As I understand it, Orcus aids in that crossover to the infinite, to the beginning and endless journey into unfolding process.

The innovative and intelligent ORCUS, by Jeremy Neal, adds greatly to the increasing wealth of knowledge that astrology brings to the world.

The first section of the book, which discusses the Hadean triumvirate's influence on a variety of charts, as well as exploring the mythology behind the objects, will be of immense value to both intermediate and professional astrologers.

The second section of the book, which explores the influence of Ixion, Pluto and Orcus on the soul during the so-called "mid-life crisis" is a masterpiece of spiritual wisdom and guidance. The analysis of exactly what spiritual integrity and living an authentic life requires is profound and inspiring, offering insights that will be of value to anyone reading the book, even non-astrologers.

I would have liked a more detailed summary of the house and sign placements of, especially Orcus and Ixion, as I know very little about these objects. On the other hand, generalising these objects and taking them out of the context of an individual's unique and complex chart would not create an authentic understanding of their powerful influence on our lives.

And it is in its authenticity that ORCUS is at its best: the excellent research, the well-written, easy to read style, the cautious and pragmatic approach to astrology as a tool for spiritual evolution, all these and more speak to the immense value of this book.

A must-buy for anyone interested in astrology and, for the second section alone, a highly recommended buy for anyone who is interested in understanding the power plays and ego-drives that unconsciously motivate us between the years of the first and second Saturn Returns (from +- 29 to +-60 years of age.)

I will be returning to this book many times in the future.

This is a compelling work. It is one of the most intelligently researched and written astrological books I have ever read. Neal's case studies are excellent illustrations of Orcus. I discovered this book just at the time Oscar Pistorius shot Reeva Steenkamp. The position of Orcus in the debacle is so prominent with her and gives the astrologer a very deep angle of perspective which the media will miss. It certainly changes the way in which Steenkamp should be reviewed. ANyone who likes 'forensic" astrology will need this book.
Neal's work is timely and I hope he will apply his skills to other trans Neptune/PLuto bodies. As our consciousness expands, so must our astrological comprehensions.

Another insightful read from Jeremy Neal. He's one of the few astrologers I've come across who treat the subject as something more than a parlor matchmaking game. He delves deep into the mythos behind Orcus and provides example after example of thorough personal chart analyses.

If you're interested in astrology and are frustrated by the dearth of well written and well researched information, I highly suggest Jeremy's blog: The Chirotic Journal. You can find it by googling.

Brilliant, insightful, interesting, useful. Since I found his blog, the Chirotic Journal, I can't get enough of what he has to say about life, astrology, and what it's all about.
