Kevin D. Raphael Fitch’s Celestial Configurations of Africa and the Caribbean is a master work of unparalleled breadth. Mr. Fitch’s literary feat provides the astrological charts, (in both Tropical and Sidereal formats with well researched birth data) for all (!) African states plus most Caribbean nation-states. He does not stop there, displaying fascinating birth charts for king’s, revolutions, invasions, and similar matters of political impact. It would be impossible to find a book more thorough on this neglected topic of African Mundane Astrology. Mr. Fitch has provided our world lineage of astrological literature with a significant and needed contribution in the political astrology of Africa. Bravo! -Judith Hill, Astrologer and Author of Eclipses and You, Portland Oregon.,
“Kevin D. Raphael Fitch has produced an extremely well researched book that contains a wealth of information essential to the Western predictive astrologer engaged in the examination of the charts of African and Caribbean nation states. It not only gives consolidated founding charts for those nations but also the reasoning behind their selection and as such adds greatly to this area of mundane astrology. I highly recommend it.” -James Chapman BA MSc DMA, Registrar Academy of Predictive Astrology New Library London
"All in all, this invaluable work is a ready-made classic that fills a long-empty gap in the understanding of mundane astrology and the nations that individually and collectively make up the evolving halls of history. Much kudos to Mr. Fitch for this welcome culmination of years of devoted and faithful research, to be found nowhere else. This is really a classic and valuable reference work for all -John Townley, astrologer and author of the books: Lunar Returns and Composite Charts, Sea Cliff, New York.

In this book about the astrology of 64 nations, the technical data is balanced by the historical facts. The book is also framed by an historically-based three-part story of an astrologer at a Café, off of Green Square in Libya, While analyzing this country’s horoscope (a visual display of quantifiable data) the astrologer discovers potential lines of change, months ahead of time, which denoted the end of several North African governments, including Libya.
“The theme of brotherhood,” says Raphael, “is the book’s core and circulates through every letter.” Besides the explanations of the astrology that was in-confluence with the British invasion of the Ashanti of Ghana, in 1874, the coronation of Emperor Hailie Selassie I of Ethiopia, in 1930, and the ousting of Zine el Abidine Ben Ali of Tunisia, in 2011, the book’s narrative writing, visceral and real, puts the reader into the very room, racetrack, or stadium, where the gamut of deep emotions of thousands of African and Caribbean peoples were gathered together to celebrate a new flag being raised, an old one being lowered, for the last time, and the sacred moment when their new leader declares independence for all.
Celestial Configurations of Africa and the Caribbean, brings a fresh angle on Africa and a unique alchemical tool, into the hands and use of spiritual aspirants who desire to draw subtle energies from the spiritual world into the precincts of any African country. It is the result of more than four years’ research into hundreds of historical books and newspapers, conversations with personnel from more than 40 African embassies, family support, the ‘masters’ sponsorship and Raphael’s more than 30 years as a consultant astrologer.
