The Winter Triangle

Not everyone knows about the winter triangle, but it has been recognized since before our ancestors time. Three points in the deep heavens, that connects three stars.

The Secret of Anubis
Because one of my obsessions is the religion of ancient Egypt, I find these three points very interesting. 

I also feel like it is a defiantly proof of the supreme knowledge that the ancient people had. And it seems rather tragic comedy-like, that these things exist before our eyes, but we have forgotten about it.

The three points that make up the winter triangle are,
The famous Sirius, and the star Betelgeuse, and last but not least the star Procyon. 

Furthermore each of these stars are located in three different constellations, hereby also connecting three big constellations to each other.


is located in the nose of the great dog constellation, which is also known as Canis Major.


is the star that marks the shoulder of the great hunter Orion.


is the heart of the constellation Canis Minor, also known as the Lesser dog.

These three stars and constellations have a direct link to the ancient Egyptian belief system. Orion and Sirius are identified in the oldest document surviving from this culture, namely known as the Pyramid texts.

The location of these three constellations, is even more interesting.

• The ancient people believed that Sirius was the Queen of 36 stars known as the Decan's, she was also known under the name of 'year'. And when she rose over the life giving Nile, she would mark the beginning of a New Year (the same as our New Years eve).

• Orion was seen as the husband of Sirius, and he was one of the 36 stars under her, Orion was known as 'Sah' in those ancient days.

Considering that Sirius and Orion was seen as husband and wife, makes the location of these two constellation even more interesting.

The winter triangle is located in our galaxy's most beautiful place, across the milky way.
One star is located on one side of the milky way, and the two other stars are placed on the other side. It is Sirius and Orion that are placed besides each other on one side of the Milky way, husband and wife.

The last star of the winter triangle, Procyon, is a little bit harder to place.

The book The Secret of Anubis, The Winter Triangle follows a logical path, both through ancient texts, as well as images and illustrations through our history. 

It follows the path of exclusion, by excluding what is known, we automatically become aware of what is not known. 

Meanwhile using the exclusion method to reach the winter triangle's last star, the reader will be introduced to the complex nature of the ancient Egyptian's mindset, and how complex their writing system really is. 

The zodiac circle from Dendara temple (now at the Louver museum in Paris) is closely analyzed and reveals the planets and the zodiac signs themselves, as we see them today. 

By being aware of these points, we can narrow in on the most logical and probable location of the North star Procyon.

Hereby making us able to see the winter triangle's location upon the Dendara zodiac chart, meanwhile finding these points of the triangle, the reader will be introduced to ancient Egyptian mythology, and see how the old star maps, have changed through our history.

  7. Hello, sorry for that mistake, I put a reference under your article


  8. I've just come across the following phrase at the website where your book is offered: "(…) do you know the ancient name of this beautiful planet?" I know you realize that Sirius is not a planet but that mistake might scare away other, more impatient, netsurfers. There's also this other, a spelling, mistake: "off course".

    By the way, one can't even say it's a star: actually it's a triple-star system (but the Ancients were unaware of that, I guess).

    I found your ad at the website, which I visit often in order to keep up to date.

  9. Dear Daniel rey m.

    I know its not a planet but a star, thank you for pointing out to me that it might scare people away, I shall correct it. and thank you for the spell check ;) (if you've ever read anything form me, then you would have noticed that I completely declare my self a spelling-idiot, I have always been a bad speller, but I am also told by many, that this is not a problem if I have something good and relevant to add to the writing table :) but I Do thank you, I'll only learn, right ;)
    I also know that this Star Sirius has company, one of the them is referred to here in Denmark as the 'puppy' and its a white dwarf. Actually I do believe that they knew about this too in ancient days, but I haven't figured everything out yet (actually fare from, and will most probably take more than only my life, if you get what I mean). An Egyptian saying (even today) "There is only One that create anything perfect, all humans make mistakes, therefore we should always acknowledge our faults" ;)
    I guess that you are interested in astronomy rather than astrology, and not that much into ancient civilizations, right? ;0)

    Thank you for your comment, and I hope you have a lovely evening or day.
