The 'Astronomology' of FOUR-Cancer♋

The 4th Triad Month of the UCC Year

Starts on Day 094 of the Year

Date: 1st Cancer♋ UCC [04.01]

(c22nd June Gregorian)

UCC Triad Month 4-Cancer♋


On the 1st day of the 4th Triad (30 Day Month) in the UCC the Sun ☉ is crossing the 6 Hour Right Ascension line of astronomical measurement in the celestial sphere

In astrology the Sun ☉ actually enters 0° Cancer♋ during our 3rd Intercalary Day, '2nd Season's Day', which is Day 93 of the Year and marks the 'Nolstice'

This means 1st Cancer♋ is the first FULL day of the Sun ☉ in Cancer♋

Correspondingly then the Earth ⊕ reaches the first point of Capricorn♑ in its spiral around the Sun

The Star Sign of Cancer ♋ in astrology corresponds to the 2 hours of Right Ascension from 6hrs to 8hrs - the 30° of the ecliptic from 90° to 120° - in astronomy

So, this "Astronomological" event means we can call our 4th Triad Month 'FOUR-Cancer♋' as it very closely aligns with the Astrological Star Sign ♊ AND its equivalent Astronomical sector of the sky!

It is also the first of the 3 Triads of our 2nd Quarter Season; Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, Winter in the Southern Hemisphere

FOUR-Cancer♋ comprises of the Decans (10 Day Weeks) 10, 11 & 12 and runs from Day 094 thru 123 of the Year as you can see in the excerpt below from the Gregorian Calendar Converter for the UCC Year 13515


The first day of this Triad, 1st Cancer [04.01] is also the 3rd and last day of the 'Nolstice Cardinal Festival of Cancer' which is symbolised as [☉ ⊕ ♋]

This 'Festival' includes days 092, 093 and 094 of the year i.e. 30th Gemini ♊, 2nd Season's Day & 1st Cancer ♋, and celebrates the Summer Solstice period in the northern hemisphere and Winter Solstice in the southern hemisphere

The 'Nolstice' (Northern Solar Stasis) always occurs on one of these 3 days of the year, usually the middle one, Day 093, our 3rd Intercalary Day, which we call '2nd Season's Day'

The Sun on 1st Cancer♋

Here we see the Sun ☉ on 1st Cancer♋ just past the 6 hour RA line having risen to its peak Declination of +23°26' above the Celestial Equator on the Nolstice the day before

The Triad Month 'FOUR-Cancer♋' corresponds to the 2 hours of Right Ascension from 6hrs-8hrs.

[Right Ascension is measured Eastward (to the left in the pic) from the '1st Point of Aries' (♈), what I call the 'Nobenox', at 0 Hours RA, where the Sun's Ecliptic path intersects the Celestial Equator rising North]

This Astronomical section of the sky, and therefore our Triad Month of FOUR-Cancer♋ and the Astrological Star Sign '♋', are currently occupied by the Constellation 'Gemini' due to Precession


The Star Sign ♋ is named after the Constellation 'Cancer' which it aligns with through one 'Age' (a roughly 2000 year period) during each 24,000 Year 'Great Year' cycle of Precession
