The paragraph you are quoting from makes clear that there are multiple such alignments. If I look to what might be a measurement or reckoning of the stars, it could mean multiple things - for example:
- position information such as latitude and longitude which may be derived via multiple methods;
- distance measurement;
- Possibly an arbitrary decan or star catalogue number
Since we can map out distance and angular measures I investigated those. Since the story mentions Djedi is 110 years old and Alhena is approximately 110 light years distant and happens to form the house of the moon ie Thoth on that date I investigated it as an interesting prospect.

This thread is quite large and evolving. I’ve dropped this from my latest thinking. There was no obvious reason to mix in parsecs into my thinking.

There are multiple layers to my analysis :
1. the constellation mapping which I am now quite confident in. As Spiros pointed out this points to a time of year
2. The date mapping - I Am less confident here - I am working through some updates based on more in depth research around the Egyptian calendar which may change the dating and therefore may or may not break the link to Alhena

I don’t believe the bull relates to Taurus now I believe it relates to Ursa Major / Meskhetyu. I have avoided trying to incorporate any other correlation theory into my analysis. However, Orion is in the sky at the time I have pinpointed at present.

I haven’t identified the goose or hts3-goose.
