Inaccuracies

That there are twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve months of the year, twelve sons of Jacob, and twelve tribes of Israel should not be lost to the numerologists among us.

  • Zodiac Babylonian Hebrew
    Aries Nisanu Nisan
    Taurus Ayaru Iyar
    Gemini Simanu Sivan
    Cancer Dumuzu Tammuz
    Leo Abu Av
    Virgo Ululu Elul
    Libra Tashritu Tishrei
    Scorpio Arakhsamna Marcheshvan or Cheshvan
    Sagittarius Kislimu Kislev
    Capricorn Tebetu Tevet
    Aquarius Shabatu Shevat
    Pisces Adaru Adar

OK, well . . . we need a few years with thirteen months to keep our months in synch with our years.
