Astrology connects us all in ways we don't even realize
To the north is the observable Polaris star, that appears to travel in a small circle due to a motion of Earth called procession, which causes our axis to trace out an imaginary circle on the celestial sphere every 25920 years. Thousands of years ago, when the pyramids were rising from the sands of ancient Egypt, the North Star was an inconspicuous star called Thuban. This celestial sphere coincides with and is a cross reference for measuring the equinox, (the wobble cycle of the earth as it rotates over time).
The Egyptians are responsible for the discovery of the precision of the equinoxes, the circumference and spiracle shape of the earth and the lunar gravitation pull of the moon on the oceans. The equinox refers to the very slow, cyclic changes in the coordinates of the fixed stars that takes place with a period of about 25,920 years.
