Review:

I don't think I've seen another book that equals Michele Adler's Predictive Astrology in terms of the diversity of techniques presented. This book is a well-organized, content-rich, and ecltectic assortment of predictive techniques. The author's focus is not on forecasting events so much as it is 'understanding cycles and themes in our lives.' Adler covers transits, secondary, minor and tertiary progressions; solar arc directions; return charts; diurnal charts; eclipses, etc. in the more conventional ways and then suggests a staggering number of ideas. To give a few examples: In a section on interpreting return charts--which lists 32 tips--Adler suggests that you 'treat the eclipse that occurs prior to your solar return as your annual pre-natal eclipse.' Or watch converse progressions and directions to diurnal angles, or take note of the solar and lunar eclipses that occur every six to seven years in minor progressed charts. Adler applies converse charts in many ways, e.g., solar and lunar returns, progressions and directions. She includes solstice points, midpoints, asteroids, declination and much more. Adler is also interested in specific degrees; she uses decanates and dwads and refers to the Sabian (and other) symbolic degree systems. Her book even features a section on thw 29th and 30th degrees of each of the zodiac signs. The author's approach is straightforward, and readers will be inclined to try out any number of new ideas. Although Adler mostly refers readers to their software programs for calculations, she does explain how to find tertiary and minor progressions in the ephemeris. There's not much in the way of theoretical underpinnings or an actual sorting out of how to judge which technique to use and when--Adler's particular gift seems to be for assimilating many kinds of charts to see what stands out when. In the chapter called Putting It Together, she demonstrates her personal method with a graphic wheel that allows you to visually see many layers of technique on one chart. Although Adler's personal approach to prediction incorporates an impressive range of methods, her book serves more broadly as a reference work for astrological techniques. As befits a book of this scope, she refers readers to other astrologers' work for more details on a particular method. This book is best suited to intermediate and advanced astrologers. Adler explains the basics of each predictive method before moving into more complex applications, so the book will be a valuable companion to astrologers as they investigate various techniques in their work. --Mary Plumb, The Mountain Astrologer, October 2006

Michele Adler's Predictive Astrology guides the intermediate-to-advanced student through the variety of techniques most astrologers have found useful in making forecasts. Before venturing into this book, the student should master astrology's basics--essentially, what the planet means in signs, houses and in aspect to each other. Once this is completed, Adler's book can become a concise references to pedictive techniques, beginning with the outer-planet transits and then on to progressions, return charts and eclipses. And, while many astrologers will eventually be able to make predictions about specific events, the aim here is not so much event-oriented as to pick up on themes, issues and life passages that will appear at noted times. Unfortunately, today's astrological community continues to suffer from a lack of concensus about predictive techniques. What the author has done here is present what most astrologers can agree works in practice, and then she throws in a few more that she favors. She doesn't distinguish between these two, so in addition to the generally accepted techniques, she includes converse progressions, tertiary prog --Mary Plumb, The Mountain Astrologer, October 2006

What the author has done here is present what most astrologers can agree works in practice, and then she throws in a few more that she favors. She doesn't distinguish between these two, so in addition to the generally accepted techniques, she includes converse progressions, tertiary progressions, solar arcs, asteroids, and a section on the 29th degree of each sign. Toward the end, she points the way to other techniques that some astrologers have found useful, such as harmonic charts, degree symbolism, diurnal charts, Arabic parts, and profections. However the bulk of Predictive Astrology is about the tried-and true and, as students master these, they won't go wrong. Personally, I'm particularly pleased to see a small section on asteroids and another on tertiary progressions, two techniques I have found highly useful.... Chapter Nine is called General Forecasting and this is where the discussed techniques come alive. Professional astrologers know that the two most commonly asked questions are about relationships and career. Chapter Nine begins with a fascinating discussion of how to recognize the potential for a romantic relationship. Along with the usual suspects (Sun-Moon contacts, Venus-Mars, etc.), Adler mentions a number of interesting tidbits that can only come from years of experience and observation. For example, she notes that some astrologers will say that Pluto in the seventh seeks the intimacy of a powerful one-to-one relationship that it can never attain. (She says:)"I don't agree with this...I think the natal house where Pluto resides requires you to surrender your expectations about the matters of that house before you find peace with it. "Or, further, she describes the woman who is interested in the financial benefits of a relationship and will have her second and eighth houses activated, while the woman mostly interested in the status the relationship provides will have her tenth house activated. Still in Chapter Nine, the next section describes how to recognize significant first enconters. One general condition, almost always present, is when one person's natal planet is conjunct your progressed planet, or vice-versa. This section is five pages of such items, and it is a great reference in itself. Chapter Nine then presents the same detailed look into career matters, and thereby covers the primary two questions every professional astrologer should know how to answer. Other areas of interest covered in Chapter Nine include briefer sections on health issues, divorce or separation, death, and predicting the outcome of contests. Chapter Nine is where everything in this book comes together, and the techniques used represent the solid core of what works in practice....To become a better astrologer, and help raise astrology out of the entertainment or fortune-telling category, study this book! --Chris Lorenz, Dell Horoscope, October 2006

This is an absolutely amazing book and to the best of my knowledge, one that is unique within the field. Between the covers, you will find discussion of virtually any predictive technique you might care to explore--transits, progressions, solar arc directions, returns (including converse, lunar, tropical solunar, kinetic and Ascendant returns), diurnal charts, Huger Age progressions, profections and more. Not only are these discussed, they are explained clearly, with extensive and generous reference to the works and websites of other astrologers who specialize in those techniques--just in case you want to study them in depth....But the book doesn't stop there. Adler also shows you how to analyze a chart using and synthesizing a wide variety of predictive techniques. Case studies of Tony Blair, George W. Bush, Martin Luther King and others are used to illustrate the techniques. I could find no mention of Adler's preferred house system, but maybe I missed it. To be honest, I was too engrossed in her explanations and uses of the techniques to nitpick about house system. The book is well-organized, clear, and a pleasure to read. It flows in a logical sequence, building on what has gone before. So not only is this a great reference book, it's an excellent teaching text. Appendices cover the how-to of things like solstice points, decanates and dwads, and the Saros Cycles for eclipses from 1900-2100 inclusive. There is a good index and an excellent annotated bibliography. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It would be worth the money at twice the price. Go out and buy it. You won't be sorry. --Donna Van Toen, NCGR Memberletter, February 2007
