teaching, and providing guidance to new, intermediate, and

"It's been a very long time since I read a book that was so
comprehensive. I like the student lessons at the end of each
chapter. You do not insult the intelligence of the reader which is
refreshing. By now, I think you realize I believe you've written a
classic. Again, congratulations! You exceeded all the expectations I
had about your book, and have given the world of astrology a

"While the core of this book is a detailed, but highly readable
explanation of Solar Arc directions, Carole Devine also does an
excellent job addressing fundamental issues regarding forecasting
and counseling. She brings together common sense, good intentions
and practical experience to assist any astrologer in the analysis
and delivery of helpful information to his or her clients."

"Carole Devine's skills as an astrologer and a
teacher come through in her concise yet comprehensive book, Solar
Arc Directions: How to Read Life's Roadmap. In this well-written
book, Devine explains how life patterns can be revealed by using
solar arc directions. Along with transits, secondary progressions
and planetary cycles, solar arc direction is an imporant predictive
technique that allows astrologers to track patterns in their
clients' lives. In the introduction, Devine states, 'The main theme
of this book is to explain these patterns and show examples from the
lives of ordinary people so that we can use solar arcs more
effectively in guiding our clients through a seemingly endless maze
of events that seem to have no common thread. The thread is there,
and not really so hard to discover!'
"Every chapter is loaded with useful information. Starting with an
explanation of the basic principles and benefits of using solar arc
directions, Devine discusses different ways to use solar arc
directions. She suggests setting up a tri-wheel (three concentric
charts) with the natal chart in the center, secondary progressions
in the middle wheel, and solar arc directions in the outer wheel. I
revisited some significant events in my life by setting up her
suggested tri-wheel and I was amazed with what I saw. Aspects that
solar arc directed planets make to natal planets can indicate
significant turning points in one's life and are a useful predictive
"Devine's book introduces the principles of cosmobiology, and
explains how to use mid-point trees. This leads us into a
fascinating chapter entitled 'The Mid-life Shift into Reverse.'
According to Devine, '... after an increment of 45 degrees solar arc
motion, which equals about 45 years of life, the planetary contacts
reverse themselves and made the same contacts that were present in
the first 45 years, but in reverse order!' This theory, which she
explains in detail, is well worth exploring. In fact, it makes this
book a must-read for serious astrologers!
"Devine also discusses using solar arc directions with historical
charts, composite charts, and as an aid in birth time rectification.
Example charts are spread thoughout the book and each chapter ends
with suggested student exercises. Devine is an excellent teacher who
knows how to present material clearly and then enhance it with
examples and exercises. I loved this short book and gained new
perspective on solar arc directions from reading it. I highly
recommend it for intermediate and advanced students of astrology."
