The 'Astronomology' of NINE-Sagittarius♐

The 9th Triad Month of the UCC Year

Starts on Day 245 of the Year

Date: 1st Sagittarius♐ UCC [09.01]

(c20th November Gregorian)

The Sun & Earth at NINE-Sagittarius♐


On Day 245 of the UCC Year we reach the 1st day of the 9th Triad (30 Day Month)

The Sun ☉ is approaching the 16 Hour Right Ascension line of astronomical measurement in the celestial sphere

Correspondingly then at this time the Earth ⊕ reaches the first point of Gemini♊ in its spiral around the Sun

The Star Sign of Sagittarius♐ in astrology corresponds to the 2 hours of Right Ascension from 16hrs to 18hrs - the 30° of the ecliptic from 240° to 270° - in astronomy

So, this "Astronomological" event means we can call our 9th Triad 'NINE-Sagittarius♐' as it very closely aligns with the Astrological Star Sign ♐ AND its equivalent Astronomical sector of the sky (the Sun ☉ actually enters 0° of the Star Sign Sagittarius♐ during the 3rd day of this Triad Month as you can see below)

It is also the third and last of the 3 Triads of our 3rd Quarter Season; Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring in the Southern Hemisphere

NINE-Sagittarius♐ comprises of the Decans (10 Day Weeks) 25, 26 & 27 and runs from Day 245 thru 274 of the Year as you can see in the excerpt below from the Gregorian Calendar Converter for the Year 13515


The Sun symbol '☉' at Day 3 in the graphic above indicates that the Sun ☉ enters the Star Sign Sagittarius♐ during Day 247 of the Year on 3rd Sagittarius♐ showing how closely our UCC Triad Months align with their equivalent Astrological Star Signs.

(The reason for the 2 day discrepancy is explained at the bottom of the page)


The Astronomy

We can see the Astronomy of this time in the screen shots below from the package 'Stellarium'

Above we can see the Sun ☉ on its ecliptic path (the red line) approaching the 16 Hour RA line of the celestial grid during the 1st Day of this Triad Month

The Sun ☉ crosses the 16 Hour RA line during the morning of the 5th Day of this Triad Month as shown below

The Triad Month 'NINE-Sagittarius♐' closely corresponds to the 2 hours of Right Ascension from 16hrs-18hrs.

[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 NINE-Sagittarius♐ and the Astrological Star Sign '', are currently occupied by the Constellation 'Scorpio' due to Precession


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

Sagittarius ♐ - The Archer

The Star Sign Sagittarius♐ (The Archer) is a 'Mutable' / 'Positive' (Male) / 'Fire' sign

It rules the area of the thighs in the body

Its 'Ruling Planet' is Jupiter (♃)


The slight misalignment between the astronomy, the astrology and the Triad Month are because the earth's orbit is elliptical rather than round and its axis is tilted which means that the orbit doesn't fit exactly within a circle

In astrology, the Star Signs divide the ecliptic into equal 30° segments

But, the Sun spends more time - 187 days - above the equator than it does below - 178 days - making the seasons, and therefore the months, slightly different in length

The UCC balances the Seasons via its 5 special Intercalary days making them all exactly 90 days each, and the Triad Months all exactly 30 Days each.

But the Sun actually spends a bit more time in Quarter 2 (Cancer, Leo & Virgo) than it does in Quarter 4 (Capricorn, Aquarius & Pisces) as it is further away from the earth during Quarter 2 due to the ellipse and therefore appears to travel slower in the sky making that part of the year a little longer.
