The Hyksos kings and their people honored the astrological precession and began reverencing the traits and proclivities associated with the sign of Aries, whereas the priests of Thebes in Southern (or Upper Egypt) decided that the time was not right for new gods to be venerated.They wished to theologically remain loyal to the Taurean principles.This intriguing scenario allows us to hazard more than a guess as to why there was a schism between the tribes of "Israel." The ten tribes decided that the old paradigm was still in, whereas the two tribes of Judah decided to honor their king Akhenaton and venerate the new Astro-Theological order. Although we may not appreciate the contrariness of the Israelites, we can liken it to the more recent historical conflicts between denominations of the Christian church. Ellis gives the example of Northern Ireland where two contingents, of the same background and blood, violently differ on theological grounds.
For instance, when we read of "lamb's blood" being daubed on the portals of doorways, we are being told of this constellational change. When we hear of the Jewish priests blowing the "ram's horn" at the Eastern gate of the temple, we are being told of it, and when we hear of the sacrifice of the "Paschal Lamb," the story is the same. The very term "Passover," originally referred to this action of the sun literally passing over the hypothetical boundaries of the signs of the zodiac. The most important biblical rendition of the astrological story and dilemma concerns the time of the exiled Children of Israel at Mount Sinai. It was here that the people returned to the worship of the "golden calf," that is of Taurus. As the Book of Exodus relates, Moses was furious with his people's recalcitrance and smashed the tablets with his Yahwistic (Atonist) commandments on them.
