This is the best of the many astro-reference books, one you will use constantly. Among thousands of entries are the complete terminologies for natal, mundane, electional & horary astrologies, as well as definitive articles on Arabian Parts, Aspects, Calendars, Cycles, Degrees, Dignities, Directions, Eclipses, Houses, Planets, Ptolemaic Astrology, Retrogrades, Ruling signs of major cities, Signs of the Zodiac, the Solar System, and much more. The section on eclipses runs 36 pages & includes solar & lunar eclipses from 1800-2000 listed by date & by zodiacal degree. It includes the 19 Saros cycles from 600 AD to 2100 AD. Under Degrees, deVore gives degree meanings similar to those of Carter.

In the extensive entry on Houses, he gives the meanings for each house, in natal, mundane & (depending on the house) various other situations: In a court of law, in an organization, in an ingress, in a national figure, etc. The entry for the Invariable Plane (one of several contributions by Charles Harvey) is a fascinating discussion of (among other things) Mahayuga, Root Races & solar eclipses in ancient Palestine. There is a fine, 9 page analysis of Ptolemaic astrology, along with how the Galactic Center relates to the Solar System, as well as definitive entries on every other facet of astrology. Complete, concise, informative, highly intelligent: Long a classic, still essential for all astrologers. Nicholas de Vore, 1882-1960, was President of the New York based Astrological Research Society.
