Chartres Cathedral: Zodiac Window

Chartres Cathedral - Zodiac Window

The Zodiac Window

In the ambulatory stained glass window in Chartres Cathedral, France, one will notice it contains the twelve signs of the zodiac.  On the top is a four leaf clover, representing the cross and Christ between the Greek letters; Alpha and Omega. Christ’s birth is represented by alpha and the second coming by omega.  The zodiac letters alpha and omega mark the beginning and the end, of a time cycle.

Chartres - Scorpio

Scorpio within Zodiac Window

The four signs (Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio) that are associated with the Galactic Cross are depicted similar to Christ in a four leaf clover.  All of the other signs of the zodiac are depicted in ordinary circles.  In this zodiac, Taurus of the Galactic Cross (Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo and Taurus) has been replaced by the sign Gemini.  The summer solstice of June 21st takes place during the last day of Gemini (May 22nd – June 21st).  By exchanging Taurus with Gemini, whereas Gemini must be associated with the summer solstice Sun, the summer Solstice Sun is placed on the Galactic Cross!
