|Denis Labouré and Chantal Etienne
Prédire par les révolutions solaires (et lunaires).
This might be the best astrology book ever written about solar and lunar returns.
Both authors have based their approach and method upon the works by Cyril Fagan, Donald Bradley and James Eshelman but they went further and incorporated a lot of their own well-researched techniques.
The method they propose is very methodical and concise.
It can be used with both the Tropical and Sidereal Zodiac.
The method relies on the most exact midpoints, parans, and the most and least predominant planets in the charts.
The book contains lists of delineations of the aspects/parans, the most important midpoints (taken from COSI by Ebertin) and topics (life events) with astrological configurations to look for.
They have also included a chapter on progressing the return chart as well.
Some stunning practical and real examples show how their method works and how reliable it is.
Indeed, there is hardly any book about solar returns that has such reliable information that works.
Les encadrements de Vénus
Since long French astrologers use a system called planetary containments; one planet is situated in-between two others (clockwise or counter-clockwise).
In this book, the author presents his empirical research based upon the containments of Venus (Venus in-between two other planets).
This is a very well-researched masterpiece that we cannot miss because it gives so much additional insight into a natal chart that you won't find otherwise.
Planetary containments are not well-researched, unfortunately, and after reading the book you will know that the order of planets really is important.
Investigating planetary containments is a highly time-consuming task though and the author has done a massive and superb job delineating all the possible Venus containments and listed lots of biographical descriptions to prove his findings.
