The star Sopdet (Sirius) is associated with Isis. The appearance of the star signified the advent of a new year and Isis was likewise considered the goddess of rebirth and reincarnation, and as a protector of the dead.
He represented the fertility that lies at the bottom of the underworld as well as the minerals and vegetal produce of the earth.
He was carried on a boat known as the Henu-barque which had the form of a the crescent moon. His stellar manifestation was that of Orion
The Sokar Feast was celebrated every year at the setting (disappearance from the night sky) of the constellation Orion, which was a symbolic death of Ptah-Sokar-Osiris. The rites center around the preparation of his body, actually a corn Osiris which would later sprout after watering, and its placement into a tomb, but the culmination of the ceremonies involved the resurrection of the god in the form of the full moon rising on the lotus of Nefertum.
The onions of Sokar would play a fundamental part in the resurrection of Osiris, with the installation of a sudden luminous appearance of the ground, the place where all the justified deceased will be born again.
At the moment when the onions intervene by the action of Sokar in the ritual of the Opening of the Mouth, the vital breath is not offered yet to the nostrils of the dead and the deceased doesn't yet breathe.
The necklaces of onions of the ntryt-night, presented to the deceased by the living while Sokar receives bundles of this same plant, are going to permit him to acquire this breath of life.
The seven openings are achieved henceforth completely, definitely giving life and completing the creation of the five openings associated to the five onions.
Tatenen is the land which rises up creating a surface, thus translating the appearance of it at the "First Time", Sokar is the cosmic principle permitting for Geb to appear above the surface of ground. Simultaneously, the Sokar-Osiris relationship develops the theme of solarisation and, on the one hand, affirms the equation between resuscitated Sokar and the rising sun, and, on the other, between Sokar, the nocturnal form of the sun, and Osiris. The new epithet "small sun" is the translation.
Thus, on Khoiak 26th, king Sokar-Osiris or the Ancient One can become the New Horus, "the one whose right eye is the sun and the left the moon". This second phase of resurrection proclaims a king identified to the creator guarantor of the maintenance of creation and its two cycles, diurnal and nocturnal. Moreover, the 26th of Khoiak corresponds roughly to Orion's entry of its 90 days of visibility in the west.
Another one will grow next year, whether or not you cut the flower that is there now. Like many bulb flowers, daffodils bloom once a year. The bulbs, with time will also divide into multiple bulbs, in which case you will have more flowers in future years than this year, until they become crowded, when you can thin the bulbs after they have bloomed.
Queen of Heaven was a title given to a number of ancient sky goddesses in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East, in particular Anat, Isis, Innana, Astarte, Hera and possibly Asherah (by the prophet Jeremiah). Elsewhere, Nordic Frigg also bore this title. In Greco-Roman times Hera, and her Roman aspect Juno bore this title. Forms and content of worship varied. In modern times, the title Queen of Heaven is used by Catholics and Orthodox Christians for Mary.

I don't appreciate the misleading title.

"ISIS" is an acronym for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
'Isis' is a mythical Goddess.
Slaughtering the English language does not further anyone's knowledge.
There is a great deal of measuring seen going on by the likes of Thoth and Anubis with regards to the Double Doors of Heaven, which had correspondence with the Djed column and thus suggested an axis, it appears this is generally concerning Phi ratio, with relationship to things such as the orbital relationship of the Planet Venus to Earth and derivatives such as the Fibonacci sequence, patterns seen to generate within nature.
