Karima Lachtane is a Danish author, with a great passion for life and history. With many different educational skills in her back pocket, she is clearly a unique researcher. Her spin on things is always philosophic and tend to serve a higher purpose. She uses visuals to explain her thoughts, and she does not exclude anything or anyone, all angles are usually present in some form or the other. Even more interesting is the fact that she is able to use a language that everyone would understand.

Well, I have just finished a second reading of your book... and I have to say, it left me feeling as though I had just read something
You have touched on an extremely old science... and very credibly I think. Your approach is refreshing and balanced, while at the same time daring to step into the unknown on occassion. As you are no doubt aware, you are walking in the footsteps of several great people who have gone before you..
You are absolutley right, I think, in saying that the Hieroglyphs are multi-layered in their interpretation, and that for too long, people have relied on the earlier (primitive) interpretations. I congratulate you (rightly or wrongly) for having the courage and conviction (let alone the multi-disciplinary knowledge) to achieve such a concise study in what is still a mine-field of conjecture and speculation normally reserved for the 'PhD's'.. The way you have related Hieroglyphs, Astronomy and Mythology together is just fantastic.. and mirrors several of my own
The work has been brilliantly researched... and shows you to be astute in the way you look at things.. (Just because we are told
something, it doesnt make it a fact).. I just want more... !
Your critique of the symbology and interpretation of astronomical representations (planets, constellations etc).. is quite convincing.. I am also reminded of the 'war of the Gods' in Indian mythology.. Im really impressed with your open interpretation of Hieroglyphs. As you say, there is still much to
Karima, I cant praise you highly enough ..your work is artistic.. unique.. and therefore important..

The book "The Secret of
Anubis: The Winter Triangle" shows the
passion and talent of the author. The book
sheds some interesting light on the subject of
astronomy/astrology in Ancient Egypt. There is
a lack of good writing available today on this

Karima Lachtane's "The
Secret of Anubis, The Winter Triangle" is
a treatise that
investigates how the ancient Egyptians viewed
At the age of twenty-seven,
the author worked as a tour leader between
Luxor and Aswan
in Egypt. Always interested in astrology, she
studied it in Denmark and continued with
her fascination with ancient cultures. This
work examines the winter hexagon, also
referred to as the winter triangle, and how
the constellations Canis Major and Canis
Minor that form it may have a direct link to
the god Anubis in ancient Egyptian religion.
Evidence in the Dendara Temple implies that
this connection, which was popularized by
the Greeks, is an ancient one.
When the Greeks moved into
Egypt, they did not destroy the temples of the
On the Contrary, Alexander the Great respected
the science and arts of the Egyptians.
Even in the middle ages, astronomy and
astrology was built on the symbolism and
observations of the Egyptians, one of the
greatest civilizations in history.
This work contains an
in-depth discussion of the gods and goddesses
in ancient Egyptian
religion, and how their presence was used by
Egyptians to explain the world around
them, including the stars in the heavens.
Monks and later scientists used the
of Egyptian understanding of the heavens to
demonstrate how astronomy can be viewed.
This fascinating work is
exhaustively researched, and notes at the end
of "The Secret of
Anubis, The Winter Triangle" offer
further elucidation of this complex topic.
Lachtane's considerable knowledge of the
subject is evident throughout, and she uses a
clear style to present her hypothesis. Anyone
who has marveled at the mysteries of the
stars or has an interest in ancient Egyptian
religion should find this work engrossing.
