Precession and the Pyramids

The Giza Diagonal
In re-reading the Orion Correlation article, I once again looked at the diagrams that are included, and came to realize the importance of the diagonal that touches one corner of all three pyramids. Although all three pyramids seem offset by their respective peaks it is only because the builders chose to align them along this diagonal instead. This diagonal seems to be some sort of axis that the builders wanted us to notice:
This diagonal is extremely close to the parallel line that is formed by the diagonal running between the two smaller "satellite" pyramids, and it may be that was what they were supposed to mark and is the most accurate diagonal (see red line in diagram below) although for our purposes the green diagonal is close enough.
At any rate, when looking at Yukteswar's precession diagram it is obvious that its main axis is the Aries-Libra line, represented by the heavy black line below:
So the next question is, what happens when you overlay the Aries-Libra axis on top of the Giza diagonal? Well, a couple of interesting points appear:
You will notice that all three causeways (dark blue lines) mark the cusps of an astrological sign at their intersection with the circle (yellow dots). It is also interesting to note that the causeway from Khafre's pyramid corresponds to one of the "spokes" of the astrological wheel. The other two causeways seem to merely point to cusp points, while Khafre's causeway actually becomes one of the spokes of the wheel. This makes one conclude there may be added significance to this causeway (aside from the fact it has the Sphinx sitting at its end).
In re-examining Yukteswar's precession diagram (the one with the heavy black line denoting the Aries-Libra axis) you will find in the lower left, the statement noting our "present position (1932AD) of Autumnal Equinox, 11° Virgo and in Dwapara Yuga". Opposite this point in the diagram, in the upper right, is the corresponding Vernal point that reads, "present position (1932AD) of Vernal Equinox in 11° Pisces." I wondered if anything of significance would show if I overlaid the vernal points over the Giza Design Grid?
The important difference between this diagram and the similar one pictured earlier, is that Khafre's causeway, which has the Sphinx positioned at its end point, now marks Leo 0°. The Sphinx, of course, has the head of a man with the body of a lion, and Leo is the astrological symbol of the lion. What this means is that we now have a "lock" that ties together the Precession of the Equinox with the layout of the pyramids of Egypt.
Next, I added the corresponding dates to the astrological cusp points, and extended the North Pole sighting lines (blue lines) from each pyramid to see where they intersected the circle.
The North Pole sighting line extensions intersected the circle extremely close to some interesting dates:
Bisecting all three pyramids exactly in half along their north-south axes, and extending those lines to the point of intersection with the circle which has Yukteswar's Vernal Precession dates super-imposed on it, apparently yields some Yuga Age cusp dates. To familiarize you with these dates, I have reproduced Yukteswar's illustration of the Precession of the Autumnal Equinox:
Returning back to the Giza Grid diagram, the 1700AD date (beginning of ascending Dwapara Yuga) seems to also be confirmed by extending a line perpendicular from Khafre's North Pole sighting spot. See pink line below:
Extending a perpendicular line westward from Khufu's North Pole sighting line point, to the intersection with the circle, yields the following date:
4100AD is the starting point for the next ascending Treta Yuga or Silver Age.
Earlier, I had extended Khafre's North Pole sighting line southward to yield an intersection date with the circle at 700BC (beginning of descending Kali Yuga or Iron Age). Extending this line in the opposite direction gives us 7700AD which is the starting date of the ascending Satya Yuga or Golden Age.
Extending our first pink perpendicular line in the opposite direction from Khafre's North Pole sighting we get the following:
This yields the date of 6700BC and marks the start of the descending Treta Yuga and the end of the descending Satya Yuga.
All of the eight Yuga Age "cusps" (four ascending and four descending) that mark the beginning and ending of the Iron, Bronze, Silver and Golden Ages seem to be "scribed" by the three North Pole sighting lines and by two perpendicular lines also emanating from this "Giza Diagonal". These lines, at right angles to each other, form two legs of three different isosceles triangles. Adding the base lines to these three triangles we get the following tan lines:
These three tan base lines, where they meet the two "legs" of their respective triangles, seem to mark the beginning and end years of all four Yugas, ascending and descending:
Kali Yuga section of the circle is yellow.
Dwapara is Navy Blue
Treta is red
Satya is lime-green.
