This is a fantastic work anyone who practices Astrology, Astronomy or is of the Occult and the Western Mysteries should have a copy of this. It discusses in great detail the zodiac, the precessions, the houses as possibly created by the Egyptians when they brought into the days of birth the associations of the Egyptian Gods to represent a time of birth. It goes into all the original names and images used by the ancients in astrology and the zodiac prior to anything we work with today.
As the Babylonians show the original placement of the houses has Virgo in the 10th house (appearing to us as it would be today's 12th house).
This is an amazing work.
