Hi Dashen and Boadicea,
I'm not as good with Verdic astrological beliefs!
Hermetic beliefs align to Sirius and Alnilam, but they use day starts, which be Sunset previous to date, which is ancient Greek day start, many
countries still use this, midnight day start being fairly modern and Sunrise day marker that is Ancient Egyptian and Roman, i use one degree of margin
and the Sun appears to move one degree a day, so the next day any alignment has moved on!
There are four angles that can be aligned to Sirius or Alnilam on the Sun Cross, being where the Sun rises at location or sets, plus both culminating
and opposite being the Nadir.
At any location this means these two stars cannot be able fit more than 24 days out of 365 days, being 3 day beginnings, and four angles, 3 multiply 4
for each star.
However it does not work out like that, as one midnight alignment is usually lost using Summer time, and there are days when alignments double up, the
most in modern era we can get would be 22 days so under twice a month, so deliberate alignments can stick out like a sore thumb. I will continue soon
with an example!
