Cyril Fagen in his work “Solunars” (A.A., 19
September 1958) creates a myth about the ill famed Egyptian Sothis
Cycle. The bright star, alpha (α) canis major today is usually called
Sirius. Today it remains one of the brightest objects in the night sky.
For this reason, Egyptologists believe the Egyptians gave this star a
special place and false-mythical ‘periodic’ heliacal rising. This may be
true to some extent, but the Fagen discovery of a chart in the Venus Tablet
of Ammizaduga (Oxford University Press, 1928) claims on 16 July -2726
(modern cal.) contains the helical rising of Sothis/Sirius. And after
performing a sidereal chart for this date, I was surprised that Sirius was
about 70 degrees from the Sun’s longitude position. The chart in question,
places the Sun at 10 degrees of Cancer – i.e. the modern position of the
projected elliptical degree of Sirius. The problem remains ‘precession.’
Because of the multiple movements of the Earth the stellar background at
night shifts slightly backwards –estimated to ‘modern’ times ( 1850s- to
present) a precessional shift of 00°00’00.922” or about ~ 70 to ~71 years
per one degree.
Canis Major, where Sirius resides, is couched between
Cancer and Orion, above Gemini. The Sun’s position, either old style
calendar or new style calendar, does not form a visual measurement for
Sirius. The Sun for this ancient Egyptian chart has the Sun over the frontal
major star of Virgo.
The closet major constellational star for 16 July -2767
B.C.E. remains Zavijava virginis (. ). The Sun is post beta (β)
virginis, Zavijava, and the Sun’s tropical assignment (Ptolemy c.
150 A.C.E., does not apply to ancient sky ascriptions!!!) assumes 21 CAN
49’45”. The local is Heliopolis, Egypt, 31e19,30n06 – the town called
Ogdoad provided optimal visual sightings of stellar coordinates.
At, 4:01 a.m., local Heliopolis, Egypt, for -2767
B.C.E. (gregorian cal.) alpha (α) pleiades or eta taurii, al-Cyone,
culminates. Denebola (β) leonis has not risen yet, and on the western
horizon is Hydria aquarii and (κ) aquarii, Situla – thus the human is
represented. The closet major star at anti Culmination is Zuben el’lak,
librae. The I.C. spans both the Libra and Scorpio constellations,
thus representing the Eagle. Taurus represents the Bull or Ox.
There is reason to believe this chart has some
historical precedence. It forms a rare Nostradamus Mars (approaching true
arc to Regulus, relative conj.), Jupiter and Saturn stellium. This
implies one such a chronocrator has or will take place in the near
past of future. The mean node and Mercury are over another famous Egyptian
star, alpha (α) virginis, Spica. At the western horizon, llambda (λ) aquarii, Ekkhysis,
gamma (γ) aquarii , a foundational scored line Gizāh pyramid star, had set
within the last 30 minuets.
If Fagan recorded the true time of this novel astrology
chart, then its importance has These Pleiades’ at the Midheaven, over
ancient Ogdoad (modern name Heliopolis), Egypt.
