Today, there are more than twenty complete zodiacs in Washington, D.C., each one pointing to an extraordinary mystery. David Ovason, who has studied these astrological devices for ten years, now reveals why they have been placed in such abundance in the center of our nation's capital and explains their interconnections. His richly illustrated text tells the story of how Washington, from its foundation in 1791, was linked with the zodiac, with the meaning of certain stars, and with a hidden cosmological symbolism that he uncovers here for the first time.

Fascinating and thoroughly researched, The Secret Architecture of Our Nation 's Capital is an engrossing book that raises provocative questions and otters complex insights into the meanings behind the mysterious symbols in Washington.

Topics: Architecture, American History, Astrology, Design, Mythology, Provocative, Contemplative, Mystical, Founding Fathers, Political Commentary, Guides, and Washington, D.C.

This book was, for me, very dense but very exciting reading. I argued with the author 9in my mind) abuot some points and loved most of the rest. I liked that the masons were not presented as "the bad guys".It sees to me that author Dan Brown mined this book for a lot of his details for "The Lost Symbol" - which is my current read.read more

If you've ever read a doctoral dissertation - and like it - you're going to love this book - Otherwise run away - Bravely! No this is not for the hat-in -the -cat crowd. Or the spoonerism thereof. Why read it? Because it reveals some very profound secrets - not conspiracy theories - but real secrets that put more flesh on the dry bones of our nation's capital. It's more than you think! I will never go to DC (and I live in the environs) without looking at the sculptural symbols and understanding why they are there, who put them there and why one day in August brings the whole picture into focus. Frankly I hated the reading of the book and loved the information. If you are interested in history of this nation give this book a look, then go to DC in August and watch the sunset. You will never see things the same again!read more

This is David Ovason's PhD. Thesis. As such, it's crammed full of facts, and many, many pages in length. I had to skip around and skim much of it, but everything I read through was interesting and exciting.read more

A must read to understand the Sacred Geometry and symbolism our Founding fathers used in the laying out of Washington DC. A great book top take with you on a walking tour of DC. I lived there for years and never noticed things until this book pointed them out. Eye-opening!!!!read more
