21 Exodus 12:11.

Figure 7.20: Central fragment of the Round Denderah zodiac with the constellations and horoscope.

We will again describe the process of dating of the Round zodiac following several steps (see section 6.7).

Step 1. (See subsection 6.7.1.) Preliminary decoding of the main horoscope on the Round zodiac and compiling the color annotated zodiac.

By using the comparative tables (see sections 5.1 and 5.4) of the Egyptian astronomical symbols, we found all the symbols of constellations and planets in the main horoscope on the Round zodiac. On the color annotated zodiac, shown on Figure 7.21, these constellations are marked in red and the planets in the main horoscope in yellow. Similarly to the Long zodiac, here again the main problem leading to several variants of decoding, was the recognition of the Sun and Moon.

Figure 7.21: The color-annotated Round Denderah zodiac. Meaning of colors: RED- zodiacal constellations, YELLOW - planets in the main horoscope, LIGHT-BLUE - partial horoscopes and solstice and equinox symbols, and GREEN - supplementary figures and scenes.

7.3.1 Constellations Figures on the Round Zodiac

The symbols used here to denote the zodiac constellations are standard and almost identical with the corresponding symbols on the Long zodiac. Consequently, it is straight forward to identify all these constellations and our identification is the same as suggested by Egyptologists22, used by N.A. Morozov23 , N.S. Kellin and D.V. Denisenko24 , and T.N. Fomenko25.

On the color-annotated zodiac (see Figure 7.21), we can see the general composition of the Round zodiac. All the zodiacal constellations are arranged in a form of a slightly deformed circle, which represents the zodiacal belt on the sky. It is surrounded from one side by the processions of figures belonging to the partial horoscopes of the autumn equinox and summer solstice (marked in light-blue). The figures belonging to the other two partial horoscopes are located inside the zodiacal belt.

7.3.2 Planets in the Main Horoscope on the Round Zodiac

As usual, the planetary figures in the main horoscope are marked in yellow on the color-annotated zodiac. All the planets in the main horoscope are represented by figures equipped with the planetary walking sticks or circles located inside the zodiacal belt. The figures surrounding this belt are not elements of the main horoscope. They belong to the partial horoscopes. However, inside the zodiacal belt, among the figures with planetary walking sticks, there are some which belong to the partial horoscopes. In the most cases there is no problem to recognize such figures, but there are two doubtful cases, where we can not decide immediately to what kind of horoscope it belongs. The first such symbols is a planetary figure of a traveler standing above Capricorn. The second one is a planetary figure standing above the Virgo's spike. Since both these symbols are placed closely above other objects, which could possibly indicate a pull-out situation, so there is a chance that they belong to partial horoscopes. If they were standing on an object like a boat or snake, there wouldn't be any doubt that they belong to a partial horoscope. But the situation with these two figures constitutes a case where the both possibilities should be considered. At the end, we found out that the figure standing over Capricorn belongs to the main horoscope, while the second figure, above the Virgo's spike, belongs to a partial horoscope. Since in the first stage of the dating we considered all the variants for these two figures, we marked them with two colors: yellow — the color of the main horoscope, and light-blue — the color of the partial horoscopes.

Let us list all the planetary figures in the main horoscope on the Round zodiac.

(1) Saturn — a male figure with a planetary walking stick and a crescent on his head. It is located between Virgo and Libra. To find out why this figure was recognized as Saturn, see subsection 5.4.2. This identification of Saturn coincides with the identifications suggested by N.A. Moro-zov26, N.S. Kellin and D.V. Denisenko27, T.N. Fomenko28, and Egyptologists29. Consequently, Saturn on the Round zodiac is either in Libra or in Virgo, so the range of admissible positions of Saturn is Libra and Virgo.

N.A. Morozov believed that Saturn on the Round zodiac was located in Virgo, and the same opinion was also expressed by N.S. Kellin and D.V. Denisenko, and T.N. Fomenko. Therefore, we choose as its best point the middle point of Virgo. Recall that the best points are only used in the elimination process to determine the order of the planets, and the mean discrepancy from

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
