Since the dawn of civilization, humans have felt compelled to engage with, understand, and control the universe.

From the Aztec Calendar Stone and the Spear of Destiny to magic circles and Navaho sand paintings, each relic, representation, and code is presented and analyzed in detail to reveal the beliefs and practices of past civilizations. Astrologist Sarah Bartlett also explores what signs and symbols disclose about the deities worshipped by our ancestors, from creator gods and mother goddesses to Norse, Inca, and Hindu gods. Engaging and informative text brings to light the secrets and intrigues that surround each mysterious object and the beliefs of the people who used them, and highlights how to decode their signs and symbols.
