Book description
Welcome to the mysterious- yet previously neglected - world of Aztec astrology! The one proud, meso-American civilization of Mexico observed and interpreted the stars in a a unique way. Like all pre-Columbian societies, they were isolated from the rest of the world, with no reference points to Western or Eastern traditions- other than the same star patterns of the night sky. Yet, without a written alphabet they created a system of stargazing so astonishing that it can pinpoint accurately any one day in 370,000 years! Gathered into the pages of this seminal modern interpretation of their astrological system are some remarkable insights into human nature. Aztec society considered astrology intergral to daily life and based it upon a 20-day cycle derived from a complex, two-tier 'calender'. All human behavior was governed by the characteristics allied to the twenty-day picture 'glyphs' of the Alligator, Wind, House, Lizard, Serpent, Death, Deer, Rabbit, Water, Dog Monkey, Grass, Reed,Ocelot, Eagle, Vulture, Earthquake, Knife, Rain and Flower. As well as providing fascinating and user-friendly profiles of each of the signs, an added bonus to this book is an intriguing celebrity list of thousands of famous (and infamous) people, past and present, who fall into these Aztec signs. Best-selling author Michael Colmer, in bringing this ancient and very different system to a new popular readership, has drawn upon twenty-five years of research and firsthand experience of parapsychology, especially the science of astrology, to create this timely and accessible guide to how the Aztecs would have viewed your friends, family, lovers... and You.
