[C] Partial Horoscope of the Spring Equinox: This partial horoscope depends on the variant of decoding of the main horoscope. Among two discs in Pisces, the one that doesn't belong to the main horoscope (if it is the case) should be included in the partial horoscope of the spring equinox. We will describe the elements of this partial horoscope that were obtained from the decoding that led to the final solution. In this case, the disc with an eye inside represents the Sun in the main horoscope and the another one is not used in the main horoscope, thus, it belongs to the partial horoscope. Clearly, as it is the only element of this partial horoscope, it represents the Sun. Notice that this disc is relatively larger in size than other discs on the Round zodiac, what in some sense can be explained by the fact that the spring equinox was considered as a Festival of the Sun. Notice that this decoding is also supported by the fact that the partial horoscope of the spring equinox, which resulted from it, appears to be very similar to the spring equinox horoscope on the Long zodiac. The only difference is that the figure making an offering inside the disc on the Long zodiac was a male, and here, on the Round zodiac, it is a female. The meaning of this scene is that "Venus was making an offering to the Sun on the spring equinox day." In other words, Venus was the most impressive planet around the Sun, so it was not far from the Sun and visible.
[D] Partial Horoscope of the Summer Solstice: This partial horoscope consists of several figures, some of them located inside the zodiacal belt, and others being a part of the semi-circular procession of the partial horoscope figures, which surrounds from the bottom and left the zodiacal belt (see Figures 7.20 and 7.21).
Let us list all these figures. Inside the zodiacal belt, there are two such figures. The first one is a male figure holding two short sticks in his hand — one of them is T-shaped. This figure is located in between Gemini and Taurus. It has two feathers on its head. A figure with similar two feathers on its head represented "second" Mercury on the Long zodiac (see Figures 7.11 and 7.12). This type of head decoration is not very common on the Egyptian zodiacs, so it seems that these two figures should be related to the same planet. The second figure, which we already mentioned above, is a human figure sitting on a chair with a whip in a hand. It is located right above Leo. It has a high hat. The gender of this figure is difficult to identify. At this point we recognize two planets in this partial horoscope — the first one a male planet in Gemini or Taurus, probably Mercury (but other possibilities should not be excluded at this stage), and the second one — a male or female planet in Leo.
Now we will list the five figures in the procession outside of the zodiacal belt. They are located in the demi-circle of the partial horoscope processions (see Figure 7.22). Right under Gemini, is the center of the summer solstice procession — a column with a bird-sun sitting on it. This figure is already familiar to us (see section 5.8) and we can recognize it as a symbol of the summer solstice. It shows the Sun at its highest point on the sky, which is reached on the summer solstice day only. On the left from this figure, there is a laying bull on a boat, which is also a typical symbol associated with the summer solstice (see section 5.8). On the both sides of this pair, we see two figures representing planets in the partial horoscope. On the right, there is a male figure with a planetary walking stick. There is also a bird walking behind that figure. The man carries a whip on his shoulder. We recognize this symbol as a male planet located on the Taurus side from the Sun in Gemini, which could only be visible before the dawn on the solstice day. The exact location of this planet is not clear. We already observed that some planets in the demi-circle of the partial horoscopes are not always related to the closest constellation in the zodiacal belt. In fact, the hole procession is assumed to be located around of the central constellation of this partial horoscope, which contains the corresponding solstice or equinox point. There are no connections between the figures in the procession and other constellations in the zodiacal belt. For example, in the autumn equinox procession, there is a figure of lion. It symbolizes Leo in this procession, but it is placed under Libra, far away from the figure of Leo. From this picture we can only guess that a male planet appeared on the Taurus side from the Sun, but we can not be certain about it.
On the other side from the summer solstice symbols, there is a woman shooting an arrow over the bull. This symbol appears on many Egyptian zodiacs (see section 5.8). It is most likely that it represents Venus on the summer solstice day. The meaning of this scene is unclear to us. Since this figure is located on the opposite side from the Sun, it indicates that Venus was observed on the evening twilight sky.
In summary, we obtain the following information from this partial horoscope; In Gemini or in Taurus there was a male planet, probably Mercury. Another planet was in Leo, but we do not have any specific information about it. There was one more male planet. Probably it was on the Taurus' side of the Sun (which was in Gemini), and its remarkable size suggests that it was well visible. This planet and Venus were on the opposite sides of the Sun.
7.3.4 Final Solution for the Round Zodiac: Morning of March 20, 1185 A.D.
Step 3. In this step we validated all the preliminary dates for the Long zodiac obtained in Step 2. It was done manually using the program Turbo Sky written by A.V. Volynkin. In result, a full solution was found for only one variant of decoding for the Round zodiac, and it turned out to be unique. Let us present this final decoding that led to the full astronomical solution for the Round zodiac:
