>The Arabic tradition of henna where patterns are drawn on the
hand is from star worship to do with the Hyades cluster.
>With the tradition of henna flowers are drawn on the hand and
both the hand and the flower are symbolic for the Hyades cluster.
>The god of the Hyades cluster is the god of beginnings and the
lotus flower is a symbol of creation hence why sometimes the flower
symbol is used to symbolize the Hyades cluster. The hand represents the
Hyades cluster because it has five digits on it which
represents the five primary stars of the Hyades cluster. There are two
stars very close to each other but the ancients didint see the
importance of one of the stars. This is why is Roman numerals the
number five as a 'V' has a value of five.
