The Egyptian Calendar
There are two zodiacs. The sidereal zodiac is a physical reality depicting commonly acknowledged pictures made up of groups of stars used by astronomers, Vedic and Sidereal astrologers. The Tropical zodiac is a mathematical construct used by astrologers only.
Most people in the Western hemisphere think of their astrological sign based on the Tropical zodiac, which is a math-only based system of division with the zero point starting at the Vernal Equinox.
Sidereal Astrologers use the physical zodiac which consists of 12 constellations.
While I refer to both systems, I am in the process of developing an alternative system using the Winter Solstice as the zero point and incorporating the 13th zodiacal constellation, while also utilizing the Lunar calendar, which is a system of 28 days x 13 Lunar months, and the Sun's transit through the constellation Ophiuchus.
This article is a description of the Egyptian calendar, according to the wikipedia.
According to sidereal time I would was born during the 3rd or 4th season of Akhet, which is associated with Hathor (Het-Heru) or Serket (Serqet) according to the system developed by Master Naba.
I was born with Moon in Taurus.
Let's now look at how this translates according to the Metonic Cycle of the Moon.
Since Orion is not considered a zodical constellation, the closest system would be Taurus so the information provided is concerning the Metonic Cycle relative to the Moon in Taurus. This explains why I seek to develop a system of self-knowledge using the stellar alignments which approximate my Earth day.
What this also helps to explain is the role of the Hathor "elemental" as representative of a Lunar Goddess.
So, according to sidereal time, according to one system I have an association to Serkhet (Solar) and a double association to Hathor (Solar and Lunar) according to another.
Personally, the most accurate would be the "double association" because my Earth-Mother was a Taurus.
Furthermore, Orion is most visible in December near the winter solstice, with the Moon in Gemini, opposite Sag (my sun sign according to tropical zodiac.)
My "step"-mother is a Gemini. Born on June 16th. The same Earth day as Tupac Shakur.
Therefore, given the close proximity and association between Taurus-Gemini, it is of paramount importance for me to study the Metonic Cycle in order to control the Lunar (emotional) aspects affecting my Solar (personality) aspect.
Double Lunar aspect can lead to intense mood swings.
Furthermore, I am personally affected even more by Serkhet because my Rising sign (ascendant) is Scorpio. ( or is it really "Libra" (Maat)?!
What is the effect of all this "Elemental" energy affecting my solar and lunar BODY?
