Figure 5.82: Mars meeting Saturn on thee Long Denderah zodiac.
According to N.A. Morozov52, the figure of two back-to-back animals symbolizes on Egyptian zodiacs the morning and evening twilights. This figure appears near Venus on the main horoscope on the both Denderah zodiacs (see Figure 5.80).
It is clear why this symbol is associated with Venus, which was considered to be a morning and evening star so the twilight figure seems to be a natural companion for it.

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.
