OPHIUCHUS: Denderah 13th Zodiac Sign

Ophiuchus - Was the 13th sign in the Egyptian Zodiac.

Orion / Osiris /Asar is known by...  SAH.
His wife Sirius / Aset / Isis is known by Sepedet.

Denderah ancient star chart holds the key to unlocking the knowledge of the future. The Giza Monuments holds an important element of astronomy.

In one of the sub-terrain grids, hieroglyphics were found. That would demonstrate, it was reconstructed exactly following the ancient plans and designs, from ancient wise priest "Imhotep".

Denderah mimics the sky directly above it's great alignment. Some say, even the future of 2012. In our move into the Pisces age, (which we are in).

Originally, there were 13 zodiac signs, why was it mysteriously dropped from the zodiac?
Especially when it's dead center of the Milky Way.

Denderah the Dawn of Astronomy

Kemetic Culture shaped around a series of religious temples, in carefully chosen sites along the Nile.

(Temple of Philae), (Temple of Karnak)

For the Egyptian priest, called Kabirim or heaven measurer's, set up the temple as a telescope.
They believed, all forms of the universe grow outward, and needed a container to protect their development.

The temples were the receptacles that allowed the development of their civilization.

Each temple manifested a different kind of understanding of the universe. A different fundamental principle, and was used to communicate it to the people to produce an evolution of conscienceness.

Each temple played a role in the organ in the country body, with a different function. Devoted to teaching and exploring, a different religious topic. In that way they understood the "house of god".


They used the constellation's of stars to define the cycle of revelation to their people of the divine information gathered by generations of priests.


The Great Pyramid of Giza shows the significance of the N. Pole star, a Southern
 star that appears to rise and set. The big dipper is called Knerpesh. And depicted as a bull severed thigh, or a curved sword.

These are called indestructible stars, because they never set.
Little dipper is in the shape of... Adze-tool used in "The Opening of the Mouth Ceremony".

Adze-tool on the table, as well being used in the ceremony.

Analysis of the zodiac, the ancient Egyptians understood the precession of the equinoxes.

 Ra in his boat  - was a celestial symbol as well, not just a symbol of the physical sun.

That myth of the number 13 being bad luck, is just to steer you from the facts. That fact is, Ophiuchus is the constellation of  "Ra Sun Deity".

Flooding of the Nile:

Alpha Draco, would appear over the axis of the planet. 4320 years after, was replaced by Polaris, the one that currently guides our navigators.

Movement of our solar system and it's revolution around in the center of  galaxy determines, that during that cycle of 25,920 years, 6 different stars would shine over the N. pole. The star over the pole represented the fundamental motherly force of the sky. The generator of the substance that allowed the development of life in the universe. Feminine principle called Hatter, by which the temple of Hathor was erected.

The Pharaoh and supreme priest oriented a line between two stakes towards Alpha Draconis.
The Priestess with a gold mallet nailed the stakes, lining up to the direction of the temple axis. They set the 4 corner stones to begin the protective wall complex.

 That same night located west, they located another star, at 90 degrees to the previous one. They called it Sirius, and was the symbol of Isis in the sky. In her honor they built a second temple, with its axis with it's second door in the wall of the complex, aligned in the star directions.

The door of the temple of Isis framed the sector of the sky, where Sirius rose, with the sun trailing her appeared on each 21st day of June day of the (summer solstice.).

The temple grew inside the high walls, while the priest recorded the movement of the stars, study the processes compelled by their energies, carved on stone walls, and recorded the conclusions of that sacred topic.

Sirius - the symbol of Isis was called the dog star, because it follows the Orion constellation, impersonation of Osiris in the sky. After being hidden 120 days , it appeared over the horizon marking the moment when the Nile begin to over flow. It was then visible for 40 days, the same the flood lasted.

Sankofa* - ( Could this be where the flood in the scriptures was taken from? 
The duration of the Nile flooding for 40 days?)

Because of this Sirius was very important. and was used to divide the year in 3 periods called textraments determined by the flood of the Nile.

The new year festivities begin when the Nile over flowed and Sirius reappeared in the sky, once the star disappeared the river recovered it's normal level. The calendar and Egyptian life was so important that the Pharaoh had to promise not to change it.

The priest also use the sun as a cloth, to determine the duration of the year. Since the summer solstice happens at the same time of the reappearance of Sirius.


Intensive study into Denderah from the Temple of Hathor, Het, Heru, will reveal the truth.

In the center of Denderah, zodiac, the great Mother Goddess Tauret the hippopotamus, she is key to the mystery. Tauret  means - Old Great LandTauret her head (cepheus) she is large in form, and represents the stars of Draco,  (shoulder and arms) and Cepheus (head and bootes) feet and sword.

Star Scorpio , Sagittarius - are directly 180 degrees from Orion, (Canis major) (Sirius) and Taurus (Pleiades)
Beetlegeise ( beetle juice). This means that Ra / and Orion are twins, that share the same soul between them.

Bennu Astronomy:

The bennu bird hieroglyphics says...Asar rests in Ra and Ra rests in Asar.

Modern science has proven that the center of the Milky Way (Nile) galaxy is in Ophiuchus. Our ancestors had already told us this; along with the stellar forces.

Bennu is a cosmic force, that comes from Ophiuchus / Ra, and travels the Milky Way / Nile to Orion / Asar.

On the ground, Giza and Saqqara was called Orion / Asar, and Abydos was Ophiuchus. There were Bennu (phoenix) cemeteries in two cities. What is the Bennu you may ask? It was Nibiru called by our ancestors.

Ethiopia -  'Land of the gods" - The rain occurred when the Orion  /  Asar star is rising with the Aten (Sun Disk). Flooding of the Nile Valley occurred when the star of Sirius / Aset is rising with the Aten.

The Kabirim (Priest, Astronomer, Astrologer),  of Bennu order have calculated the rising of Sirius / Sepedet.
To the 40th latitude. At this latitude Sirius  / Sepedet rises with Aten on July 25th yearly.

Note:  There are actually 37 original decans  - 10 x 36 = 360.
So the 37th decans presides over the 5 days of the year.

Sepedet -  has a value of (0), or (37),  Representing that she is the beginning and the end / alpha / omega.


The bird was primarily associated with Atum and Re, but inevitably, its connection with rebirth came to associate it also with Osiris. In quoting from the Book of the Dead, Wallis Budge quotes a passage that reads,

"I go in like the Hawk, and I come forth like the Bennu, the Morning Star.

(i.e., the planet Venus) of Ra; I am the Bennu which is in Heliopolis" and he goes on to say that the scholion on this passage expressly informs us that the Benu is Osiris. In essence, the Benu was considered a manifestation of the resurrected Osiris.

  For the sake
 of posterity.On the Denderah stone the Sextant is shown as the maiden Selket holding a bow in her hands under the front paws of the lion. Her arrow is pointed directly over the ruminating Hathor, through the double crown on the head of Horus, through the white crown on the Cocky Man, and directly into the center of the sun disk on the horns of the stiff necked Ram.

It seems that the heavens and the ancients have conspired to hit a "bull's eye" over a period of two thousand cycles of the earth around the sun. Extend the scepter in the hand of Venus to realize that it passes through the boundary between Cancer and Leo to the hand on the bow of the maiden. Try to imagine the improbability of these events. The one acceptable answer is that Love itself defrocked the Mother of us All. 

She guided the progress of civilization during two thousand years of denial of our cosmic umbilical cord, so that she could prove her wisdom to be far superior to any Great Man with assertive intuition. On the stone, Venus guided the hand of the maiden as her arrow was let loose to find its mark in the enlightenment of the stiff necked ram. Two thousand years later, the heavens wrote the same message as Venus (love) returned to steer the stars.


                                       Denderah Zodiac (19th-century engraving)

Its representation of the zodiac in circular form is unique in ancient Egyptian art. More typical are the rectangular zodiacs which decorate the same temple's pronaos.

The celestial arch is represented by a disc held up by four pillars of the sky in the form of women, between which are inserted falcon-headed spirits. On the first ring, 36 spirits symbolize the 360 days of the Egyptian year. 

At the center of the Hathor vignette and the Denderah zodiac is the image of Tauret. She is a pregnant hippopotamus who wears cow horns and a crocodile skin cloak. In the heavens, she is the Sun Dragon, Draco, which marks the north axis of the ecliptic plane. 

The cloak around Draco is the Milky Way. The crocodile can be seen in the Milky She protects 
her children within her mouth.Way with an open mouth through which the swan Cygnus, the fox Vulpecula, and the Eagle Aquila are moving. Coming out of the mouth of the crocodile is the end of the tail  of Serpens. Also, within the mouth is the child Antinous, or Horus the son of Isis and Osiris. Like a river crocodile, Tauret protects in the Kingdom of Heaven.

The purpose of Hathor as Mother Nature is to provide the budding life with an opportunity for receiving abundance.

That is the message written in the Denderah monument, the vignette to Hathor, and the Tauroctony of Mithras. Finding the truth in that message is the method of the sacred sciences. 

We can search throughout the whole universe for truth. But, when it comes, it will come from the same places where it had come before. When we listen to the Fables of the Ancients, the future will unfold as a resurrection of the past. That is the mystery of teleology.

the cord with Seshat.These versus put into words what the Denderah architects put into stone. The axis of the Denderah stone is coincident with the axis of the temple. The clear implication is that the temple was designed to be aligned with human knowledge. The one with greater wisdom than the Queen of Sheba is the wife of Thoth, Seshat. Seshat is the Egyptian Fairy Godmother. Her powers of cause and effect for any affectation were legendary before the founding of Egypt. In a temple constructed during Hatshepsut's reign, queen Hatshepsut is shown directing Thoth to go speak to Seshat to find the answers to his questions. Seshat was the origin of all the wisdom of Thoth. 

Seshat is the feminine consort/counterpart/wife of Thoth the Scribe, he who wrote the story/program of humanity's journey through time. She is a Magician, as is Isis, Thoth, Hermes, etc. Seshat bore the title 'Egyptian Fairy Godmother'. Her magic wand, with its seven pointed star, was the symbol which represented the source of all creative ideas, consciousness. Her powers of cause and effect for any affectation were legendary before the founding of Egypt

- The Tree Of Life -

Seshat was the essence of cosmic intuition, creating the geometry of the heavens alongside Thoth. In Egyptian mythology, Seshat was originally the deification of the concept of wisdom, and so became a goddess of writing, astronomy, astrology, architecture, and mathematics.

She was known as 'Mistress of the House of Books', indicating that she also took care of Thoth's library of spells and scrolls. She is the patron of libraries and all forms of writing, including census and accounting work. Seshat was the only female that has been found (so far) actually writing.

Seshat was the mistress of measure. Whenever a new project was undertaken, the Egyptian priests enacted the interplay of Seshat at the creation of the cosmos by the ceremony of the stretching of the cord. Her magic wand with its seven pointed star was the symbol which represented the source of all creative ideas. Being wise before Thoth, she was also wise before Solomon. Notice that the Great Man, User-Maat-Re, wears the atef crown in the stretching of cord scene in the adjacent vignette. He is shown on the temple axis as a man with Thoth's atef crown. 

This is the meaning of the Queen of Sheba and her visit with Solomon. Solomon had stretched the cord with Seshat. Solomon's wisdom could only be tested by Seshat, the Queen of Sheba, for she was the first to become inspired and she gave her treasures to Solomon, i.e. User-Maat-Re. It is interesting to note that the name She-ba means feminine spirit in English. Without question, Seshat was the queen of feminine spirits.

The seven messages of Seshat are echoed in the story of the conquest of Jericho by Joshua's seven trips around the wall of the city, and by the seven soundings of trumpets. When any initiate can make the victory sound for understanding each of the seven sacred spirits, the complete Wall of the Ruler will come tumbling down. The four elements and the three ingredients for communication are the seven points on Seshat's wand. 

These seven are demonstrated at the boundaries of Aries and Pisces and Capricorn and Sagittarius on the Denderah.
Here we recognize in the modern Judeo-Christian scriptures a principle reflected in the Denderah stone. When the Queen of Sheba visited Solomon (sun-man, Great Ruler) she brought the power of intuition. After Solomon, the flower of woman's intuition was no longer admired. This is recorded in the words of I Kings, and on the whole east side of the disk of the Denderah stone.

I Kings 10:1-5 
1  And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she   came to prove him with hard questions.
2  And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
3  And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not.
4  And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built,
5  And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cup bearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.

When it had come to pass that "there was no more spirit in her," Western Civilization crossed that boundary which is the deflowering of motherhood, and the loss of belief in fairy godmothers. The altar of four serpents became an altar of four rams. The Denderah stone tells us why.

The scriptures keep the reason a secret, and imply that the use of intuition had no more value. All that was worthy of being known had already been learned, and the time for controlling action was at hand. Western Civilization had matured to the point where it had to attempt to make it on the record at hand; the Book of Life. This is the stage of adolescence. The consciousness of Western Civilization marched to a different drum beat as it began to be about its Father's Business.

The Great Man's umbilical cord to Seshat, which is Western Culture, has now broken away, and it is time to get back to truthful cosmic consciousness once more. Capricorn has the spirit name "I Use." During the application of man made material laws and the implementation of his "order of law," the goddess of intuition makes her meaning clearly understood. When our laws fail us, we must resort to creative solutions. These always come to us by gut feel, or intuition, which are in the wand of Seshat, and the hands of Osiris-Seker, Sculptor.

Denderah Zodiac and the Solar Eclipse on August 11, 1999

Serpent Holder

The serpent holder ( as it was known as) bearing the thirteenth position, could have been feared taboo along with the man holding the serpent.

Ophiuchus holding the serpent, Serpens, as depicted in Urania's Mirror, a set of constellation cards published in London c.1825. Above the tail of the serpent is the now-obsolete constellation Taurus Poniatovii while below it is Scutum.

On the Denderah stone, the planet Saturn stands between Libra and Virgo. When the monument was designed the existence of the planet Pluto was not known. Saturn was recognized by the ancients as the "Ancient of Days." Thus, Saturn's position defines a Last Judgment. During the eclipse of August 11, 1999, the planet Pluto was located under the hand of Ophiuchus nearest Libra. This is the location of the hand of Ra holding the scepter on the Denderah stone between Scorpio and Libra. 

The position of Mars at the apex of the balance in Libra on August 11, 1999 tells us that it is the rational aspects of the cosmos that are on trial in the hall of the last judgment. The decision to be made is whether the rational being will be born to a new truth, or will it descend to the valley of shadows with a chance to dream a new dream in the dungeon of the Cosmic King. 
The decision has two possible outcomes, as shown at Libra. One leads to the jackal at the hand of Tauret. This is a return to the material source scenario, for she represents the material aspects of motherhood in the solar system and the galaxy. It is the path of starting from the beginning, again. 

The second outcome is through Virgo who shows the way with the light of wisdom (Mercury) held toward the Kingdom of Heaven. This route will result in no more judgments, for it passes through the "ancient of days." Being born of the Virgin will lead the child on the balance to become a Prince of Peace in the Kingdom of Heaven. 

In front of Leo and on top of the Cow of Hathor, which symbolizes Mother Earth, stands the icon of Jupiter. The implication is that the Prince of Peace will become the Ruler of an abundant World, for Taurus on the other side of Jupiter is looking toward the Lion with a beckoning glance.

The sculptured Dendera zodiac (or Denderah zodiac) is a widely known Egyptian bas-relief from the ceiling of the pronaos (or portico) of a chapel dedicated to Osiris in the Hathor temple at Dendera, containing images of Taurus (the bull) and the Libra (the scales).


The zodiac is a planisphere or map of the stars on a plane projection, showing the 12 constellations of the zodiacal band forming 36 decans of ten days each, and the planets. These decans are groups of first-magnitude stars. These were used in the ancient Egyptian calendar, which was based on lunar cycles of around 30 days and on the heliacal rising of the star Sothis (Sirius).
