The rich visual imagery of decans  

The decans are a division of each of the 12 signs of the zodiac in to 3 equal parts. They are often mentioned as a side note, or not at all, in contemporary astrological texts.  Yet these neglected elements of astrology have a well-illustrated history- one adorned with hundreds beautiful and disturbing symbolic images.  From the wildly surreal gnostic imagery of the late Hellenistic period to the realistic but symbolically charged pictures in Renaissance texts, no other element of astrology has left such a rich visual trail.  We’ll trace the history of this under-appreciated piece of astrology through its different incarnations, tracking down symbolism that stretches for four millennia.

 


 

Austin Coppock

Austin R. Coppock is an astrological consultant, teacher, writer and speaker and is the current president of the AYA (Association for Young Astrologers).  His approach to astrology is rooted in history and tradition, yet open to contemporary developments and concerns.  Austin’s work also encompasses the critical and often ignored overlap between astrology and magical traditions, such as Hermeticism.

He has written extensively on astrology, including hundreds of weekly columns, dozens of articles, and Astrological Almanacs for 2011-2014.  His writing has been featured multiple times by The Mountain Astrologer, and his forthcoming work on the decans, “36 Faces,” is due to be published by Three Hands Press in July 2014  Austin has also been a featured presenter at such events as the Esoteric Book Conference and the Northwestern Astrology Conference.
