Here are some reviews that have been submitted to Amazon.com about my book that you may find interesting
By Sylvia Hawley (Springfield, OR USA) –
As with those great teachers whose vibrations impact many in highly individual ways, Jeffrey Wolf Green’s retirement from teaching was cause for considerable sorrow and regret for his students. Fortunately for us all, in the years leading to Wolf’s gradual withdrawal from the demands of active teaching, he was joined in his work by his daughter, Deva, then in her late 20s I think. Deva’s apprenticeship was a decision she herself made after exploring higher education and other avenues. When she began to study with her father (and her mother, also a fine evolutionary astrologer), Deva had close and full access, a sincere and genuine interest and a modest sense of her grasp of the material. Over the years, she has blossomed into an exceptional astrologer, counselor, author and teacher of depth and presence. Her book adds stunning clarity and simplicity to the sometimes complex teachings of her father. Hearing as he did and does continually from every chakra of a risen kundalini, Jeffrey can see and teach things that require a rare consciousness to understand. I say that speaking for myself as a student who needed years to osmose these teachings and begin to be able to help others in a meaningful way with this beautiful astrology. Osmosis is a Pluto kind of thing and that’s what it takes to grow into the understandings organically. But Deva brings a clarity and spirit of ease and play with insights that were clearly her Soul’s before it brought her to join her father this time as his daughter. For those who have struggled with Wolf’s two volumes, Pluto I and II as we call them, Deva’s clarity will be a welcome relief. And, she’s teaching. Astrologers and seekers can find her online and her school is based in Ashland, Oregon. Just Google for Evolutionary Astrology or Deva Green. Expect the infinite.

With the publishing of Pluto: The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul (Jeffrey Wolf Green) more than 20 years ago, the astrological world moved into a new era of chart interpretation that captured an individual’s psyche–past, present and future–like never before. Not a “cookbook” of descriptive key words and phrases, Evolutionary Astrology (EA) as realized and developed by Jeffrey over the years has given astrological counselors real tools to help their clients deal with their emotional, psychological, intellectual and spiritual dimensions in a way that produces real soul growth.
Now, with Evolutionary Astrology: Pluto and Your Karmic Mission, Jeffrey’s daughter Deva brings her own unique insights to the understanding and practice of evolutionary astrology. Not only did Deva formally study EA with her father, while she was growing up she saw it in action on a daily basis and osmosed (Pluto) a great deal of knowledge and understanding in a way that others have not been exposed to, and this deep understanding is reflected in her first work on EA.
In addition to her refreshingly youthful, yet deep, insight into EA, Deva reveals the evolution of the EA paradigm itself and brings the principles of evolutionary astrology to life thru copious examples that astrologers can use to illuminate their own chart readings.
Deva has expanded the descriptions of the four evolutionary stages (of consciousness), one of the core teachings of EA, and has provided many examples of how to apply the stages to a birth chart in numerous places throughout the book. Her descriptions of the core archetypes for each house, sign and corresponding planet both review and build on the original Pluto material in easy-to-understand and apply descriptions and principles. For example, EA: Pluto and Your Karmic Mission offers more extensive discussions of the archetypes of masochism and sadism found within the Virgo/Pisces axis, the archetype of the Daemon soul found in Sagittarius, and Natural Law versus man-made laws/religions and how they influence and condition the basic archetypes accordingly.
In addition, Deva both reviews the core principles of the main evolutionary axis (Pluto and its polarity point, the north and south nodes and their planetary rulers), the definition of the Soul and the Ego, the ways the soul effects its evolution, and aspects to Pluto and updates them with new and expanded insight and examples. The last chapter explains the two methods of chart interpretation–the house method and the planetary method–and shows the reader how to synthesize them with the main evolutionary axis and, of course, the basic archetypes of evolutionary astrology.
This brand new offering in Evolutionary Astrology at its finest, i.e., as the continuance of the true and original Evolutionary Astrology as first realized and taught by Jeffrey Wolf Green, is a must-have for anyone seeking to help themselves and their clients expand their consciousness, discover their Karmic Mission, and move from Karma to Dharma.

“Pluto and Your Karmic Mission” is so much more than the title presents. Written with concise attention to detail in a clear approach, Deva wastes no words or adds no confusion, leaving even the most unenlighted reader of human nature completely clear and amazed at the depth of knowledge. This is the ultimate book on character analysis and will likely end up as a classic in astrology. It is “must have” for any psychologist, social worker or even those remotely interested in human nature and a universal perspective. As a beautiful and stunning source of truth and guidance it far surpasses the old worn out repititous astrology of the ancients and brings fresh, new insights not only for EA astrologers and those interested in the subject, but for everyone in any type of healing and serving profession. Deva Green is a Master and a perfect example of what a soul should be, moving through our world today.

By J. Bobbitt “Astrologer” (Houston, TX) –
This book is great. Deva writes about Pluto with the same depth and insight of her brilliant Dad, Jeff Green. She shares her knowledge with understanding and compassion. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in expanding their concept and meaning of Pluto’s evolutionary path in a chart. I look forward to her future books.
No Cutesy Sun Sign Astrology Here!, April 12, 2009
By Amy Herring “prophetessamy” (Seattle WA USA) –
Building from the work of her father Jeff Green, Deva discusses the techniques and philosophy of using astrology to evolve the soul with purpose, rather than just describe one’s personality. This book goes deeper than most, and is in fact, a bit thick, but it’s well worth the wade! A must for serious astrologers.
