Here are some excerpts from the Dell HOROSCOPE Sept 2000's review,
written by Chris Lorenz, of Measuring the Night, Volume One:
"Two of astrology's leading lights, Steven Forrest and Jeffrey Wolf Green, have both written excellent books on Pluto. Their personal styles and terminology differ, but they have far more in common than do most individuated astrologers. Recognizing this (common ground), they have pooled their talents to put on a series of lectures centering on what they call Evolutionary Astrology. The "Pluto Brothers" then (had the lectures transcribed) to present in book format, and the wonderful result is Measuring the Night. Both Pluto brothers incorporate reincarnation and karma in their astrological views, as well as a disdain for the patriarchal system that teaches adherence to an external authority.
Forrest punctuates his presentations with many useful insights to aid in horoscope interpretation. I found it helpful to underline many of his juicy tidbits. Green includes a great reference on trauma and the outer planets. His presentation conveys a philosophical perpective that might be summarized as working with the difference between consensus reality and natural reality when counseling as an evolutionary astrologer. Evolutionary astrology allows room for individual responsibility and creativity, rather than relying on rigid, "cookbook" interpretations of character and destiny.
How does one understand the difference between consensus reality and natural law? How do we escape the cultural role models of Betty Crocker and the Marlboro Man? Evolutionary astrology can move you past the traps of the patriarchal priesthood, and these Pluto brothers provide the lucid insights to guide you along the way."

The Lunar Phases
The lunar phases are curiously marginalized in astrological practice. How is a Full Moon in Gemini different from a crescent Moon in the same sign? What about waxing versus waning? Based on The Book of the Moon, this lecture introduces an eight-phase interpretation of the lunar cycle based on the Pagan calendar of solstices, equinoxes, and cross-quarter days.
