Figure 8.9: Fragment of the Brugsch's zodiac containing the horoscope in "Boats."

horoscope in "Boats" is shown on a green-yellow background. Notice that these two horoscopes: without "Walking Sticks" and on "Boats," are arranged symmetrically on the opposite sites of the goddess Nut. Since their figures are clearly separated, there is no danger of confusing them with the wrong horoscope.

All the figures from the horoscope on "Boats" were already discussed in Chapter 5, where we have explained the principles for the identification of planets. Section 5.4 was devoted to the symbolism of the main horoscope on the Egyptian zodiacs. In this subsection, we will only present the final results.

On the horoscope in "Boats" (see Figure 8.9), there are shown the following planets from the main horoscope (starting from the far left):

1. The first symbol in this sector is the figure of a tall bird with a long beak. This is probably a supplementary symbol, which does not represent any planet.

2. Mercury — a male figure with a human head standing on a boat with a planetary walking stick;

3. Saturn — a male figure with a head of a bull, with crescent-like horns, holding a walking stick;

4. Second figure of Mercury — it is exactly the same figure as the one that is standing on the other side of Saturn, which was identified as Mercury. That means, Mercury is shown here twice around Saturn, which may imply that Mercury was "passing" Saturn on these days.

5. Sun — a bird on a podium. A very similar bird, but without a podium, symbolized the Sun in the horoscope without "walking sticks," on the other side of the goddess Nut;

6. Mars — a male figure with a falcon head standing on a boat and holding a planetary walking stick;

7. Venus — a female figure on a boat, holding the usual walking stick. This figure is moved slightly away from the other symbols. It is placed over the forearm of the goddess Nut. The reason for this shifting could be the fact that Venus has already "moved" to the another half of the zodiac, which is located on the left side of the goddess Nut. In this case, it could signify that Venus was in Sagittarius, but we should not exclude the possibility that Venus was still in Capricorn. 8. Jupiter — a male figure with a high hat on his head, standing on a boat and holding a planetary walking stick. His arm is outstretched towards Venus. It is also located above the forearm of Nut.

By comparing the locations of these figures with respect to the zodiacal constellations in the central sector of the zodiac (see Figure 8.9), we get the following decoding of the horoscope in "Boats":

The Horoscope in "Boats" on Brugsch's Zodiac

SUN — in Aquarius or Capricorn; MOON — not shown; SATURN — in Aries;

MERCURY — is shown twice: in Pisces and Taurus. It is "passing" Saturn; MARS — in Capricorn;

VENUS — in Capricorn or Sagittarius, already in the another half of the zodiac; JUPITER — in Capricorn or Sagittarius.

The file containing the input data for the program HOROS, which is based on the above decoding, is included in Appendix 3. There were two solutions found for this remarkable zodiac: the year 999 A.D. and 1853 A.D.

In this way we have arrived to a conclusion that the Brugsch's zodiac refers to the 19th century! There is no other way we could possibly explain the fact that the solutions of the three horoscopes gathered only once around practically the same date: 1841, 1853 and 1861. Moreover, the date of the Demotic zodiac, which was probably annotated later, it the most recent — the year 1861.

Let us point out that there are not many solutions for any of those horoscopes on the Brugsch zodiac — from one to three in the whole historical time interval. Therefore, the probability of having three random solutions ping-pointing the same date is extremely small. The fact that we were able to find such three solutions is a strong indication that the Brugsch's zodiac was indeed created in the second half of the 19th century.

The exact positions of the planets on February 27, 1853, which is our solution for the horoscope in "Boats," are presented in Table 8.9.
