    Default Fandango and the Stars

    Each creature in the book seems to relate to a constellation...


    Fandango-a fox-Vulpeca
    The eagle- Aquila
    The otter- Hydrus
    The hare- Lepus
    The bear- Ursa Major
    The snake- Serpens
    The dolphin- Dolphinus
    The crab/lobster- Cancer


    Also "not a friend to chickens" made me giggle since Vulpeca is commonly seen with a goose or some sort of fowl in his mouth. Maybe this was a reference to the constellation.


    Just a thought that's lead my down some interesting paths in this search. Any thoughts?

    Interesting, and which constellations do we see on the Key page?

    Libra astrological sign top left circle, and I think(?) libra constellation it looks like towards the bottom left, with a red arrow through it going to the bottom left. Which again matches what I found.
    Also Aries constellation top left and the corresponding astrological sign straight down

    The constellation with the red arrow through it looked like a dipper to me, so I looked it up and it seems Ursa Major may fit it, but Libra could make that quadrilateral too. Also, notice how there are only certain stars that are particularly bright. Hmm.


    Beneath the image of the eye in the center ish is undoubtedly Orion. That one, I'm certain of.


    Something else I found with this picture: "A Measure of Gold" - Well, if you look up the image symbol of gold in alchemy, it's a circle with a smaller circle within, pretty similar to the eye images all over this picture as well as that olive looking thing beneath the dolphin(lol). Not sure how to apply it, but thought it was an interesting find.

    There's also a bunch of concentric circles that look like raindrops on water at the bottom of the key page.

    The olive thing also matches to the same thing on the camera/reflection page, in different colors, on Fandango's left ear, our left.

    Yeah, and the olive thing on the camera page fits perfectly on the gatehouse since in reality, the gatehouse has a small structure like that on it as well (from what I can see in pictures). Wonder if it means anything or is just coincidental. So many "ifs"!
