In the various applications of Astrology, the faces can appear to be quite a bit different. Some practitioners use the planets that rule the zodiac rather than the zodiac themselves. To compound this some types of astrology do not incorporate all of the planets. Some forms of astrology break the faces down into individual days. Some forms of astrology start the year in different places. One can easily imagine the myriad of different forms the faces could take depending on the methods one chooses to use to construct them.
