The ancient zodiac found in the Temple of Hathor at Dendera, Egypt, known as the Dendera zodiac, has provided a revealing view of the significance of the goddess Hathor and the rituals associated with her temple in ancient Egypt

There were annually rituals at DenderaTemple. The most important rite was the New Year festival, when Hathor statue was taken in a procession to the roof of the shrine, to be unified with the light rays of the Sun-god.

On the first day of New year every year, the statues of the Sun-god (Ra) and Hathor/Isis were carried to the roof of the shrine, where the light of both Sirius ( the brightest star in the night sky ) and the Sun would shine on them.
The rising of Sirius involves only a brief appearing of the star before it is lost in the light of the sun. The event of this union, or marriage, recreates the world order by celebrating the sun birthday, the New Year.
