The position of the moon is irrelevant of the seasons since it's orbital period is not linked to that of the Sun. Since the woman asterism figure is standing then this means that, below her feet when she rises, the moon is below the horizon. Thus at night before dawn the Moon is also not visible, the sky is dark.
According to Belmonte Reret, or Ast Djamet has the form of a female Hippopotamus. It represented a big area near the pole covering from Lyra to Bootes.
Let's set the year to a round 2580 BC. Now let's consider the brightest stars of the constellations of Lyra and Bootes, Vega and Arcturus respectively. According to Stellarium if we take the average Heliacal rising dates of both stars we will see it is October 13. This thus seems to be the start of Peret. This could be day 1 of month 1 of Peret season.
Selkis was later associated with Isis, so Isis was thus linked to the constellation of Virgo. Spica, the ear of wheat, thus relates to goddess Demeter.
The Thesmophoria was an ancient Greek religious festival, held in honor of the goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone. It was held annually, mostly around the time that seeds were sown in late autumn – though in some places it was associated with the harvest instead – and celebrated human and agricultural fertility. The festival was one of the most widely-celebrated in the Greek world.
In Athens, the Thesmophoria took place over three days, from the eleventh to the thirteenth of Pyanepsion. This corresponds to late October in the Gregorian calendar, and was the time of the Greek year when seeds were sown.
I believe this was encoded in the orientation of the Temple of Hephaestus in Athens as also the orientation of the Khafre Pyramid causeway in Giza. The Sun rise direction reminds us that the month Pyanepsion was dedicated to god Apollo, god of the Sun. The Sun with it's radiation helps the seeds in sprouting and the plants in growing.
Also, from Wiki:
Taweret was closely grouped with (and is often indistinguishable from) several other protective hippopotamus goddesses: Ipet, Reret, and Hedjet.
