In the Senjecan conculture the number 6 has a mystical meaning. Most things are categorized in groups of 6. Thus, the 12-house zodiac is not an alien arrangement. The naming is not yet complete, but I would like the houses to be named after animals. There will be 6 major houses and 6 minor houses. The major houses will be named after the steeds of the 6 loquent peoples (human = horse) and the minor houses after the animal companions associated with each of the 6 loquent peoples (human = wolf). At least that's my plan. Charlie
