The 3 Scorpio Decans

decans
Decans are 36 groups of stars that rise in a particular order throughout each earth rotation. These decans were developed in Egypt thousands of years ago. The rising of each decan marked the beginning of a new "decanal hour" of the night for the ancient Egyptians and eventually three decans were assigned to each zodiac sign. Each decan covers ten degrees of the zodiac. Each decan is ruled by different planetary rules which are also correlated with astrological signs. More

Similarly I have seen the opposite reaction from those who read articles from experts and I have even seen many of my fellow Scorpio's responses to my tweets on Twi...
