Tenth Day Circle

    Aries, The Ram is also called the Lamb. The Hebrew word is Taleh which means "The Lamb Sent Forth, as stated from some sources." The ancient Akkadians called it Baraziggar which means "The Altar (Sacrifice) of Making Right." The Criosphinx is a sphinx with the head of a ram became a sacred animal, as shown on the Avenue of Sphinxes in the Temple of Amon-Re at Karnak, on the Nile River in modern day Luxor, Egypt [Greek krios, ram; + sphinx]. The Altar (Heb. mizbeah, place of slaughter, Gr. bomos, is in Acts only, thysiasterion). The first Hebrew altar occurred when Noah left the ark, then Abraham made his, and so on to Isaac, Jacob, Moses and Joshua.

for the words that are connected to the Old Testament
and as seen below the word for Lamb is as follows:

   Likewise the Old Testament word for Ram:

   Of interest is in Daniel 8:3-8, the word ram in Hebrew is ‘ayil, ah’-yil, from the same as Heb. ‘uwl, ool, from an unused root, to twist, be strong; properly strength, hence anything strong, specially a chief (politically); also a ram (from his strength); a pilaster (as a strong support), an oak or other strong tree.

   Newton claimed that the ram in Dan. 8:3 corresponds to the "bear" in Dan. 7:5, symbolizing clumsy firmness. The King of Persia wore a jeweled ram’s head of gold instead of a diadem, such as are seen on the pillars at Persepolis. Also claims that the Hebrew word above for ram springs from the same root as "Elam," or Persia. You decide.

   Libra, The Scales or Balances has a Hebrew word known as Mozanaim which means "The Scales Weighing," associated with a form of redemption. Balance the English word is from the Latin bilanx and means "having two scales." It is used to translate three Hebrew words: mo’znayim, kaneh, and peles.

   The Hebrew word for balance is mo’zen, mo-zane’, from Heb. ‘azan, aw-zan’, a primary root for weight, (only in the dual) a pair of scales: -- balances.

   At Tel Megiddo (Heb. meghiddo, meghiddon) or its modern name for the site Tel el-Mutesellim -- the stratum layers are a very important archaeological site in Israel from Biblical times. It is the same location of the apocalyptic battle in Rev. 16:16--Armageddon (Gr. Armageddon, from Heb. har-megiddon, mount or hill of Megiddo), in northern Israel where many battles have occurred.
