BLURB

For longer than can be remembered, astrology has served to steer humanity with celestial reach. Not only do they point the right direction, the constellations have also permitted all to look within their most inner selves. Today, we pretend to ignore these mystical divinities but in reality hold them close to our hearts, silently praying that the stars of the Zodiac will illuminate our path in life, and ultimately, our destiny. Reign Of Forever is an homage to the omnipresent forces that watch and guide us - mostly with care, but sometimes spite – as the eccentric tycoon Yüan Meng Ch’ien would recall, had he not died tragically crushed by the cruel malfeasance of fate. [Jack Mur]
