The 'Astronomology' of


The 10th Triad Month of the UCC Year

Starts on Day 276 of the Year

Date: 1st Capricorn♑ UCC [10.01]

Day 2 of the 'Solstice Cardinal Festival of Capricorn' [☉⊕♑2]

(c21st December Gregorian)

The Sun & Earth at TEN-Capricorn♑


On Day 276 of the UCC Year we reach the 1st day of the 10th Triad (30 Day Month)

This day is also the 2nd Day of the 'Solstice Cardinal Festival of Capricorn' and so can have the symbol [☉⊕♑2]

It is often also the day of the 'Solstice', which we can call 'Solstice Day', when the Sun ☉ at its lowest southerly point is crossing the 18 Hour Right Ascension line of astronomical measurement in the celestial sphere

Correspondingly then at this time the Earth ⊕ reaches the first point of Cancer♋, the point of the Sun's 'Nolstice', in its spiral around the Sun

The Star Sign of Capricorn♑ in astrology corresponds to the 2 hours of Right Ascension from 18hrs to 20hrs - the 30° of the ecliptic from 270° to 300° - in astronomy

So, this "Astronomological" event means we can call our 10th Triad 'TEN-Capricorn♑' as it 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 4th Quarter Season; Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer in the Southern Hemisphere

TEN-Capricorn♑ comprises of the Decans (10 Day Weeks) 28, 29 & 30 and runs from Day 276 thru 305 of the Year as you can see in the excerpt below from the Gregorian Calendar Converter for the Year 13515



The Astronomy

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

Sun ☉ on 1st Capricorn

The Sun ☉ at its Solstice with a Declination of -23°26' on the 18 Hours Right Ascension line on the 1st Day of TEN-Capricorn♑ 13515 UCC

The Triad Month 'TEN-Capricorn♑' corresponds to the 2 hours of Right Ascension from 18hrs-20hrs.

[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 TEN-Capricorn♑ and the Astrological Star Sign '♑', are currently occupied by the Constellation 'Sagittarius' due to Precession


Above we can see the Sun ☉ on its ecliptic path (the red line) at its 'Solstice' crossing the 18 Hour RA line of the celestial grid during the 1st Day of this Triad Month

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


The Astrology

We can see the Astrology of this 10th Triad Month in the screen shot below from Planet Watcher

☉ at 0° Capricorn

The Sun ☉ at its Solstice enters The Star Sign Capricorn, shown at 0°♑, at 22:51UTC (GMT) on 1st Capricorn♑ 13515 UCC.


Capricornus ♑ - The Goat

The Star Sign Capricornus♑ (The Goat/Sea Goat) is a 'Cardinal' / 'Negative' (Female) / 'Earth' sign

It rules the area of the Knees in the body

Its 'Ruling Planet' is Saturn (♄)


And So...

So, at the Solstice, the Astronomology of the Sun ☉, the Astronomical Celestial Grid and the Astrological Zodiac Star Signs are now re-aligned with the start of the Triad Months and the start of Quarter 4 by the 5th and last of our Special Intercalary Days which Balance the UCC Year, as the earth approaches its 'Perihelion' (closest point to the Sun - shown below) on the 14th Capricorn♑, in the middle of this Triad
