    Pg. 10 goes into detail about opposites in the opening paragraph:
    glad-forlorn, immense-invisible, saved-tragic.

    Using this logic, I decided to apply it to the Zodiac signs on the illustration. Each zodiac symbol within the circle has a color of either: yellow, red, orange, white or green.

    My results in the respective order of the Zodiac

    Yellow: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Scorpio, Aquarius
    Red: Leo, Libra
    White: Virgo
    Orange: Sagittarius
    Green: Capricorn, Pisces

    Pg. 10 seems to be cluing us in on opposites. There are 6 pairs of opposite signs. Aries/Libra, Taurus/Scorpio, Gemini/Sagittarius, Cancer/Capricorn, Leo/Aquarius, Virgo/Pisces. http://www.astrologyzine.com/what-is-my-opposite-sign.shtml

    In all but one case (Taurus and Scorpio), the colors resulted in singling out their opposite signs.

    The zodiac circle of animals (pictured here Astrology on the Web: The Zodiac) illustrates the opposites, as the opposite sign will be found directly across from the sign in the horoscope chart.

    I am wondering how, if at all, this fits in to the solution.

    For what it's worth, these are the resulted colors in order. Perhaps Taurus and Scorpio needed to be misrepresented so that there would not be any reoccurring color combos, or maybe it's a red herring, or maybe I am not on to anything at all!

    Here are the colors and oddly enough as I stated before, there are no repeating color combos.

    Colors in order

    yellow-red: Aries/Libra
    yellow-yellow: Taurus/Scorpio
    yellow-orange: Gemini/Sagittarius
    yellow-green: Cancer/Capricorn
    red-yellow: Leo/Aquarius
    white-green: Virgo/Pisces

    I understand why Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man is on this page. Da Vinci's Vitruvian man was inspired by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio's writings of geometry and human proportions. Vitruvius was a Roman Architect, and is the author of the ten books on architecture (De Architectura) Vitruvius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In one of Vitruvius' ten books on architecture, he wrote about the tower of Andronicus in Athens, now called the Tower of the Winds (Sundials: History, Theory and Practice by Rene R.J. Rohr). It is an octagonal tower dating back to the first century BC. The top of each of its sides is decorated by a sculpture of artwork representing one type of wind. On each face under the pieces of artwork are very old sundials. The tower was constructed by the Greek architect and astronomer Andronikos of Kyrrhos Google Image Result for http://licsundial.net/wp-content/tower_winds.jpg
    While no longer there today, the top of the tower once had a revolving bronze weather vane of the sea god Triton.

    There are many things in the book fandango pointing to sundials, and I don't know what to do with this information.

    On this page of Fandango, on the top right hand side, there is very small picture directly to the left of the zodiac symbol Aquarius. This is a depiction of a Gnomonic projection (a point on a sphere in terms of latitude and longitude). The small 0 with the line going through it represent the latitude of an angle.

    Hi JBadeo,

    Your understanding as to the significance of Vit man on page 11 is plausible and may be correct. But when I look at it, I'm reminded of the passage in Quest for the Golden Hare by Bamber Gascoigne, beginning with the last paragraph on page 32 where the inspiration for the idea of Kit's visual device is introduced. This book is a must read for anybody working to find FANDANGO's key and I highly recommend that you check it out from your local library, should they have it.

    You've observed a connection with sundials and various visual clues in FANDANGO, and mention the book by Rohr. Another very good book on sundials, one that I own, is Sundials, Their Construction and Use by R. Newton Mayall and Margaret W. Mayall. I studied it in 1994 and began building armillary spheres including the one shown below. Armillary spheres are great teaching devices insofar as the things that you learn in order to properly set one up. BTW, phi is name of the Greek letter highlighted in your remark designating latitude - pronounced fi (long i sound).

    Kelly,

    Thank you for the good information on sundials, and also your thoughts on the vit. man and the tower of winds as it relates to Fandango.

    Up until today, I was having a very difficult time finding any information on Kit William's Masquerade (aside from the few sites that exist on the internet). None of my local libraries carry Masquerade or the Quest for the Golden Hare. Thankfully, just today on Tweleve, a link was posted to a great article on the development of the book Masquerade Masquerade | Kit Williams | Paul Slade - Journalist
    There are so many similarities that can be found in Fandango, I am now having troubles determining where nods to Masquerade end and the real riddle of Fandango begins.

    Wow! Great article - thanks for the link!! I can't wait to read it, but now must get ready to go to work. The linked BBC's radio program had been blocked until most recently, and I look forward to listening to it.

    I ended up hunting down my copies of all three books (two by Kit and the one by Bamber) through eBay and Amazon. The scandal really didn't break (late 198 until after all three had been published and until Slade's piece, the Bunnyears website seemed to be the only place to get the full story of how the hare had been stolen.
