The use of dwads is amazingly effective in chart interpretation, providing the specifics and particulars that are otherwise out of reach. These divisions of the zodiac provide subtle but powerful details that enable a fine-tuning of the chart and interpretation of the most insightful aspects of personality. Author Thyrza Escobar takes this one step further as she discusses and explains the Faces of the signs, the positive and negative areas of the zodiac and the decans, while incorporating what she learned from well-known German astrologer Carl Leipert. The most important and insightful sections of The 144 Doors of the Zodiac, however, are those that focus on the 144 duodenary divisions of the zodiac, which reveal a zodiac within each sign, and the dwad-houses, a technique that gives fresh meaning to each of the houses. The book includes a section devoted to each sign, with details about the dwad-sign and dwad-house, including quality, element, sub-ruler, and the correspondence of each house for that particular sign to element, quality, and planet. Dwad-houses and dwad-signs within each sign are also explained in terms of their influence in personal interests, achievements, relationships, feelings, actions, emotions, and thinking, all of which can add new depth to chart interpretation. Also included is information regarding interpretation of the number of planets in a dwad-house. The author provides similar information about the planets in the dwad-signs and specific aspects.
