Speaking on Heliacal Risings
One simple event is the starting point for so many developments in our evolution. The Egyptians used the helical rising of Sirius, the dog star to mark the summer solstice and mark the beginning of their calendar year.
Many other countries used the heliacal rising and culminaton of the Pleiades, in the constellation Taurus to mark events in the world. In North America the Kiowa Tribe and the Navaho created mythology and timing of events. Aztec and Mayan calendars were based on the culmination of the Pleiades. The Maori of New Zealand used the rising to begin their calendar.
