Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations: Part 10
Sirius: the King of the Seven Stars
on the right hand of God.
The Axe is a symbol of his kingship, as is the vase-like glyph of his name, which appears to the side of his head and as a container in his right hand. The vase-like glyph is possibly the symbol of his throne. The flower, which is divided into seven segments, discloses that he is the "King of Seven Stars". The centre of the flower with seven petals represents the star Sirius. The seven petals represent the seven minor stars surrounding Sirius. The King of the Seven Stars is in fact a personified portrayal of the constellation of Canis Major.

Triple Tau: Gates
or Sacred Opening
Temple of Jerusalem
The Double and Triple Tau represent the plural form of Tau. Visually, when the Taus are joined together horizontally, they represent a temple, as in the hieroglyph between the Taurus Bulls' heads in the chiefs on each side of the Nermer Plate. The vertical trunks of the Taus represent the columns of the Temple. In the Osiris Legend, Osiris was encased in a tree trunk, which was later utilized as a pillar. The pillar of a temple therefore represents Osiris … who has already been evidenced as the Axis Munde in the Djed Pillar; the Pillar of Stability. (See Part 4 and Part 6) Since a Tau is a "sacred gateway, opening or portal", and multiple Taus form a Temple, it follows that a Temple is a gateway, opening or portal: a portal to the Netherworld through which the Sun rises at the Dawn of a New Age of the Zodiac.
the Temple of Jerusalem, within the Great Pyramid.
Both are examples of the Sacred Summit "Templum Hierosolma"
… encoding the Secret of Precession.
By investigating the Nermer Plate, the origin, meaning and purpose of ancient stone Taus and Henges in Britain and Europe has become clear. They originated in remote Ancient Egypt as Taus and they represent Temples, which are gateways for the Sun at the Dawn of a New Age of the Zodiac. Their purpose is to commemorate the Dawn of the Ages of the Zodiac, and in some cases track and predict the Dawn of the next Age of the Zodiac.
The Celestial Sphinx, Hu. Sky view from the
Giza Plateau around 11:57pm on July 3rd 14000BCE

In celebration of their Dreamtime, the remote Ancient Egyptians had exactly reproduced their Celestial Sphinx, Hu, at Giza in readiness for the July 3rd and 4th 14000 BCE Festival. (See Part 2) Prophetically the Fall of Hu heralded the decline of the remote Ancient Egyptians and their entry into the Dark Ages. During this time only the intellectual elite would have been allowed to be initiated into, and share, secrets of such magnitude … The Secret of Hu as the Giver of Life in the Beginning and The Secret of Precession.
This title was usurped by Osiris.
Several symbols of Precession can be immediately recognized in the inscription above: the ankh, the cross within a circle, Hu, the mound and the pillar. The title of "Osiris: Giver of Life in the Beginning" confirms Osiris as the new Lord of Creation as well as the new Lord of Precession.
by 4468BCE. This is confirmed by his size in comparison to the Giant.
The Sphinx and the Bird
This is the first record of the Flood Myth.
It predates both Gilgamesh and Noah.
In addition, the bird carrying the twig denotes that the centuries of torrential rain in Lower Egypt had stopped and the floods were subsiding. The hot climate being experienced in 4468BCE is indicated by the mode of dress worn by the players on the Nermer Plate.
The first hieroglyph, rectangular in shape, and not unlike the larger semi-circular version at the bottom of Side Two of the Plate, represents the Twelve Ages of the Zodiac. (Up until now hieroglyphs of this nature have been translated as a fortified cities!) The second glyph, with the flower of the papyrus and two "ribbons" is a reference to the fact that the two figures are twins. The twins in the Ages of the Zodiac are the Gemini Twins.
