Exodus Chapter 17 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "the people thirsted there (at Rephidim -- 17:1) for water, and the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) people grumbled against (Castor) Moses and (red radius) said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our (Gemini) children and our (Taurus and Aries) livestock with thirst?” (17:3) on Iyyar 22, 1446 B.C. till "Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) cried to the (fiery) Lord, “What shall I do with this (Gemini) people? They are almost ready to (lunar) stone me.” And the (fiery) Lord (red radius) said to Moses (Ophiuchus), “Pass on before the (Gemini) people, taking with you some of the (Perseus and Pollux) elders of Israel, and take in your (Castor) hand the (red radius) staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. Behold, I (Cepheus) will stand before you there on the (red radius) rock at Horeb, and you shall (red radius) strike the (red radius) rock, and (lunar) water shall come out of it, and the (Ophiuchus, Hercules) people will drink.” And Moses (Castor) did so, in the (red radius lunar eyeballs) sight of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) elders of Israel" (17:4-6) is 210° seconds or 3 1/2 minutes.

"Then Amalek (Ophiuchus and Hercules) came and fought with (Perseus and Gemini) Israel at Rephidim" (17:8) is 150° later or 5 hours later. So Moses (Ophiuchus) said to Joshua (Hercules), “Choose for us (Gemini and Perseus) men, and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow (+360°) I will stand on the top of the (red radius) hill with the (red radius) staff of God in my (Castor) hand.” (+210°) So Joshua (Hercules) did as Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) told him, and (red radius) fought with Amalek, while Moses (Castor), Aaron (Pollux), and Hur (Perseus) went up to the top of the (red radius) hill" (17:8-10) is 38 hours later (360° + 210° = 570° and 570/15 = 38).

"Whenever Moses held up his (Castor) hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his (Castor) hand (+180° or 3 minutes), Amalek prevailed. But Moses' (red radius) (lunar) hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron (Castor) and Hur (Perseus) held up his (red radius lunar) hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his (lunar) hands were steady until the (sun on red radius horizon) going down of the sun" (17:11-12) is 150° or 5 hours later. "And Joshua (Perseus) overwhelmed Amalek (Hercules and Ophiuchus) and his (Gemini) people with the (red radius) sword" (17:13).

"Then the (radiant) Lord said to (Ophiuchus) Moses, “Write this as a memorial in a (lunar) book and recite it in the (lunar) ears of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven” (17:14) is 210° later or 7 hours later. "And Moses built an altar (solar fire) and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner, saying, “A hand upon the throne of the Lord! (or "They have raised their (Castor) fist against the LORD's throne" -- New Living Translation), The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation” (17:15-16) is 150° or 5 hours later. Notice the red radius flag pole with the Milky Way Banner dangling from it. Turning the zodiac 180° we see an image of a man crucified with both hands raised -- giving Israel victory.

Israel Prevailed When Aaron and Hur
Held Up Moses' Hands

 

17:1 All the congregation of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) people of Israel moved on from the wilderness of Sin by stages, according to the (red radius) commandment of the (fiery) Lord, and camped at Rephidim, but there was no (lunar) water for the people to drink.
2 Therefore the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) people quarreled with (Castor) Moses and (red radius) said, “Give us (lunar) water to drink.” And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said to them, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the Lord?”
3 But the people thirsted there for water, and the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) people grumbled against (Castor) Moses and (red radius) said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our (Gemini) children and our (Taurus and Aries) livestock with thirst?”
4 So Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) cried to the (fiery) Lord, “What shall I do with this (Gemini) people? They are almost ready to (lunar) stone me.”
5 And the (fiery) Lord (red radius) said to Moses (Ophiuchus), “Pass on before the (Gemini) people, taking with you some of the (Perseus and Pollux) elders of Israel, and take in your (Castor) hand the (red radius) staff with which you struck the Nile, and go.
6 Behold, I (Cepheus) will stand before you there on the (red radius) rock at Horeb, and you shall (red radius) strike the (red radius) rock, and (lunar) water shall come out of it, and the (Ophiuchus, Hercules) people will drink.” And Moses (Castor) did so, in the (red radius lunar eyeballs) sight of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) elders of Israel.
7 And he (red radius) called the name of the place Massah [Testing] and Meribah [Quarreling], because of the (red radius) quarreling of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) people of Israel, and because they tested the Lord by (red radius) saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?”
8 Then Amalek (Ophiuchus and Hercules) came and fought with (Perseus and Gemini) Israel at Rephidim.
9 So Moses (Ophiuchus) said to Joshua (Hercules), “Choose for us (Gemini and Perseus) men, and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the (red radius) hill with the (red radius) staff of God in my (Castor) hand.”
10 So Joshua (Hercules) did as Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) told him, and (red radius) fought with Amalek, while Moses (Castor), Aaron (Pollux), and Hur (Perseus) went up to the top of the (red radius) hill.
11 Whenever Moses held up his (Castor) hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered (180°) his (Castor) hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 But Moses' (red radius) (lunar) hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron (Castor) and Hur (Perseus) held up his (red radius lunar) hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his (lunar) hands were steady until the (sun on red radius horizon) going down of the sun.
13 And Joshua (Perseus) overwhelmed Amalek (Hercules and Ophiuchus) and his (Gemini) people with the (red radius) sword.
14 Then the (fiery) Lord said to (Ophiuchus) Moses, “Write this as a memorial in a (lunar) book and recite it in the (lunar) ears of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.”
15 And Moses built an altar (solar) and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner,
16 saying, “A hand upon the throne of the Lord! (or “Because hands were lifted up against the throne of the Lord"), The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”
