Solar Returns: An Introduction | Reader Reviews

If you want a good introduction to solar returns, is this book worth reading? Don’t take my word for it – here are a few reader reviews. All of these reviews come from genuine readers who have purchased this book.

5*****This book is well written and easy to understand either for the beginner or for a seasoned astrologer. It made me look at solar returns in a completely different light. Highly recommend.

Verified Purchaser Amazon (USA)

5*****I really loved this book. A simple easy read which frankly, considering some of the information I have read on solar returns, really put me off on where to even begin. But this is a well put together book that breaks it down and makes you feel confident. I love the way it’s written, the way it’s sectioned out and how it also gives you the freedom to interpret too. Really recommend for anyone looking to gain a basic understanding of solar returns. You could take your learning further but I am quite happy to stop right here with it. Thank you for an amazing read! I honestly couldn’t wait to apply it to my own solar return chart.

5*****Très concis et agréable pour entamer l étude de la Révolution solaire.

Verified Purchaser Amazon (France)

5*****An excellent book to understand solar returns, it helped me a lot in clarifying the ambiguous parts of reading a chart. 


Congrats on your book, Solar Returns, and your website, professional and personable. Just as I did with progressions, I reluctantly started to investigate solar returns a couple of years ago (I took a workshop with Steven Forrest here in Durham, NC, USA). Recently your book caught my attention and sealed the deal so to speak. The results have been spot on which shouldn’t be surprising, but is. I’ve been studying astrology on and off for 40 years and it still blows my mind!
