    Fascinating and Inspiring

    This book provides an inspiring look into the design and building of our nation's capital. I read it, re-read it, studied it, outlined it and researched it because it invoked that much interest out of me about Washington, DC and the leaders of our country. What was most fascinating to me was that the initial founders of this great city started a plan that couldn't be stopped and was carried forward by many people who were not even involved in the initial plans. That is a plan that has sufficient energy to draw the necessary resources to ensure the evolution of that plan. We could all learn from this book!

    Ovason reveals the Masonic method

    Astrologer David Ovason has written a very well researched book on the Zodiacs embroidered in the public architecture of Washington, D.C. Official Freemasonry is loath to admit any Masonic involvement in the occult architecture of Washington, D.C., but this particular book has been favored with a foreword by C. Fred Kleinknecht, 33o, Sovereign Grand Commander, The Supreme Council, 33o (Mother Council of the World), Southern Jurisdiction of the U.S. Mr. Kleinknecht is arguably the most important public Freemason in the world. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the secret, but true, nature of Freemasonry. Its publication at this time is part of the alchemical 'Revelation of the Method' at the dawn of the New Age.
