The book Hawaiian Birth Signs – Nā Hō`oailona Hānau, offers a wealth of mystical teachings of the ancient kahuna kilo hōkū, (expert stargazer and seer). For the first time, the astral revelations for all 12 months of the Hawaiian lunar calendar are shared by a modern day descendant of Hawaii’s priestly sages in an insight filled journey of self-discovery. Twelve full-color original illustrations and 24 traditional proverbs in the Hawaiian and English languages enhance the quick, easy and informative reading experience. This ancient wisdom offers a practical and inspirational guide for living that people of all ages and professions are successfully following today. One reader marveled, “this is my son exactly and it took someone that lived centuries ago to learn how to help him.”

The audiobook version of Hawaiian Birth Signs – Nā Hō`ailona Hānau is entertaining and authentic way to learn about Hawaiian mysticism and the secrets of the ancient kahuna kilo hōkū (stargazer, seer) interpreter of the cosmic signs, who used the laws of heaven and earth, an individual’s birth date and other sacred divination tools to forecast a person’s life path. For the first time, the astral mysteries are revealed for all 12 months of the ancient Hawaiian lunar calendar and offers a practical and inspirational guide for living today.

Dramatic narrative enhance the musical highlight – mele (songs) and traditional oli (chants) performed in the kahiko (ancient) style. Powerful calls of the conch shells herald each month and 5 traditional Hawaiian percussion instruments and 2 wind instruments are nature’s many voices: pahu drum, kala`au (dancing sticks), `ili`ili (stone castanets), `uli`uli (rattling feather gourd), ipu heke (double gourd), `ohe hano ihu (bamboo nose flute) and , (conch shell). Their instrumentation masterfully conveys the changing seasons, the ancient Hawaiian gods, and their natural manifestations including: rain, storm, gusty wind – sacred representations of the deities and imbued with great mana.
