Table 7.7: Planetary Positions on September 10, 1184

Table 7.7: Planetary Positions on September 10, 1184

Column 3: PARTIAL HOROSCOPE OF THE AUTUMN EQUINOX. As before, we consider here the variant of the beginning of the Egyptian year in September. The year, related to the solution, started in September 1184 and ended by September 1185. The autumn equinox day occurred in this year on September 12, 1184 (see Appendix 3).

As we already explained, in the old times finding the date of the equinox day wasn't very precise, and even in the 14th century mistakes up to six days were made. Therefore, we will analyze the planetary positions during the time interval from September 6 till September 18, 1184. Indeed, on September 10, 1184, i.e. two days before the exact autumn equinox day, the planets close to the Sun were arranged in a configuration, which exactly correspond to the picture of the autumn equinox on the Round zodiac. Below, we present the calculated longitudes of the planets on September 10, 1184 (see Table 7.7).

On Figure 7.26, we show a chart of the morning and evening sky that was of the sky between the morning and

visible in Cairo on September 10, 1184. The invisible part evening horizons is colored in gray-blue.

Let us list the planets that were visible on that day. In the morning: Saturn (with M=+0.9) — the closest to the Sun visible planet, Venus (with M = -3.6) — next to Regulus (a-Leo) on the boundary between Virgo and Leo, and Jupiter (with M = -1.4) — in Leo. In the evening: only Mercury (with M = +0.98) was visible at the evening twilight. The submersion of the Sun, at

the moment when Mercury was setting down, was only SUH=9o, but still Mercury was sufficiently bright to be visible in such circumstances. At that time Mercury was very close to the star Spica (a-Virgo) — distance between them was around 1o. Mars was near the Sun in a distance of about 2o and it was completely invisible throughout all the autumn equinox days.

We are now ready to compare this information with the situation on the Round zodiac. Let us recall the contents of the partial horoscope of autumn equinox: Mercury on the Virgo's spike (i.e. very close to Spica), Saturn on its place in the main horoscope (i.e. in Virgo or Libra), Venus in Leo, and one more planet, possibly the Sun, is shown as a bird in Virgo or in Leo (under the feet of the "additional" Virgo). By comparing it with the situation on Figure 7.26, we notice that Mercury is exactly located as it is suggested on the zodiac. Saturn is also on its place, as it is expected from the main horoscope. Position of Venus is exactly as it should be. Invisible Mars, which was in Virgo, corresponds well to the figure of a bird "hiding" under the figure of "additional Virgo." Indeed, a figure in a hiding position is a natural symbol for an invisible planet. At this point, only Jupiter is missing from this partial horoscope. However, let us notice the small sitting figure above Leo. As we mentioned before, it could be related to the partial horoscope of the autumn equinox as well as to the summer solstice partial horoscope. The solution that we've obtained suggests that symbol is Jupiter in these both partial horoscopes. Usually, it doesn't stay so long in one constellation, but during this particular year it was making a loop in Leo, so it was "sitting" there almost the whole year.

Consequently, we have a perfect confirmation of all the data related to the autumn equinox partial horoscope. So, we annotate this column with the plus sign.

Column 4: PARTIAL HOROSCOPE OF THE WINTER SOLSTICE. In the Egyptian year related to this solution, the winter solstice took place on December 12, 1184 (see Appendix 3). By allowing a few days error margin, we consider the winter solstice days to be approximately from December 6 to December 18, 1184. In these days, Mercury which was close to the Sun, disappeared from the Sky on December 4. Therefore, we will present the planetary position on two days: December 4 (when Mercury was still visible) and December 12, 1184 (when Mercury was not visible anymore). The other planets, except Moon, did not changed significantly their positions during the winter solstice days. Notice, that Moon on December 4-5 was invisible. At that time, it was located in Sagittarius. The New Moon reappeared in the evening on December 6, in between Sagittarius and Capricorn.
