Or can you harness your familial and individual talents to create your own destiny?

That thread is the Decans, a division of the earth’s sky into 36 sections. These 36 'Faces of Heaven' are more than just a curious footnote in the history of archaeo-astronomy. First emerging in ancient Egypt, they have moved with the corpus of Hermetic materia...More
