The decans above are as accurate as they can be within a ten degree orb. But for a detailed exploration of your birthchart please refer to the READINGS page.

NOTE: I started off using the ancient Chaldean rulers of the decanates, but will be adding in fresh material relating to the triplicity rulers in 2015. Click on the links above for a more detailed interpretation of each decan using the fixed stars and celebrity examples. You can also apply the decan character traits to your Ascendant or Moon using these zodiac positions:  Taurus Decan 1 0° – 10°Taurus Decan 2 10° – 20° and Taurus Decan 3 20° – 30°.
*The Picatrix is a book of occult magic and astrology. It is often used as a reference for making astrological talismans. †The 36 Airs of the Zodiacs list of Gods and Spirits.
