Leonardo’s Ultima Cena has intrigued and enthralled viewers for centuries. The painting will continue to be interpreted through both scholarly study and artists recreating it. Indeed, the analysis of the painting, and what da Vinci had in mind when he painted it, has been the subject of many books and articles, and will continue to engage the minds of thinkers in various academic disciplines.

As a member of an astrology group that meets regularly to discuss and share all sorts of astrological techniques, studies, books and ideas, one thing always on our agenda is the deciphering of a “Mystery Chart”.
