Discovered in 2004, 90482 Orcus is a transneptunian object and Plutino in 2:3 resonance with Neptune, creating a Hadean triumvirate alongside Pluto and Ixion. This groundbreaking work traces the mythological roots of Orcus and extrapolates a rich astrological principle which perfectly encapsulates the emerging spiritual paradigm of our age. The approaches to Orcus are uncompromising and inescapable, but to balk at his hard-won revelation is to reject all possibility of an authentic and fulfilling life. For the astrologer, the wisdom of Orcus adds a vivid new dimension to the nativity, and for the esoteric student too, the methodologies and tenets of Orcus create a profound organising principle with which to better understand the exigent shift from a life of unsatisfying material striving to a new depth of spiritual freedom. "Jeremy Neal's masterwork about Orcus is a major contribution to the advancement of astrology. Facing the real significance of these newly-discovered trans-Neptunian bodies is not work for the faint-hearted. This is a courageous book that carries the reader into the heart of darkness. Fortunately, it also carries us out again Neal faces painful subjects unflinchingly, and yet never loses sight of the higher ground. I enthusiastically welcome his voice to the conversation." - Steven Forrest, author of The Inner Sky.
