The Fertility Wheel

Have you ever perceived the Zodiac as having a greater purpose beyond daily horoscopes?

With the figure embodying Inanna, the goddess of fertility, sexuality, childbirth, and more, and recognizing that water is essential for the fertility of Earth, and brings the earth life, as well as determining the optimal breeding seasons for terrestrial animals and the best planting times for wheat and grains, it should indeed be referred to as the ‘Fertility Wheel’.

In Stephen's groundbreaking theory, he introduces a fresh perspective on Zodiac symbols, presenting them as simplified pictograms that encapsulate the essence of fertility, agriculture, and survival.

These symbols serve as concise representations of crucial elements like animal breeding, crop cultivation, and the recognition of seasonal patterns and hazards prevalent in ancient times.

By realigning these pictograms with the Sun and the equinoxes or solstices, the Sun's seasonal rhythms rather than the stars, the pictograms transform into a perpetual Farmer's Almanac or Fertility Wheel. This realignment unlocks their timeless wisdom, making it easily accessible to all who possess the key to deciphering their meanings.

The Fertility Wheel

The unveiling of this hidden treasure has long been anticipated by scholars and enthusiasts alike. Through his work, Stephen has revived the ancient wisdom embedded in these symbols, restoring their significance and relevance to the modern world.

The Fertility Wheel is more than mere pictograms! It embodies the profound interconnectedness of nature and the universe, and how humans can be in harmony with nature. These symbols are to help humankind understand nature even if you speak a different language or can not read my words. These symbols will enable people from all walks of life to grasp the deeper meanings they contain.

Imagine if the symbols of the Zodiac took the form of uncomplicated pictograms, each representing elements of farming, agriculture, and survival. These symbols would capture the essential aspects of agriculture and are closely tied to the cultivation of crops, seasonal cycles, and the pursuit of sustenance. Such a reinterpretation could provide a unique and grounded perspective, aligning the celestial with the fundamental aspects of earthly survival and agricultural practices.

This understanding can alter your perception of your familiar zodiac symbol or sign. Once you grasp the mechanics of this ancient agricultural almanac or Fertility Wheel, its value and benefits will become unmistakably evident, and you won’t be able to overlook the profound impact it could have.

This would be one of the most critical pieces of information for any shepherd, farmer, or village to have in ancient times, and it may be just as important in the future.

Once you see and understand the Fertility Wheel’s meaning and how to use it as a tool or guide you might not ever see the Zodiac the same way again.

The Chinese Fertility Wheel

Stephen’s New Theory on the Chinese Zodiac. The Yellow Emperor made significant contributions that shaped various aspects of Chinese civilization. He played a key role in developing the Chinese zodiac, astronomy, mathematics, and agriculture. In the traditional Chinese narrative, the Yellow Emperor is lauded for improving the lives of the nomadic hunters within his tribe. His teachings are credited with introducing agricultural practices, particularly cultivating the five grains.

Additionally, the Yellow Emperor is attributed to the creation of the Chinese lunar calendar, a sophisticated timekeeping system still in use today. Unlike the solar-based Gregorian calendar, the Chinese lunar calendar is lunisolar, considering both the moon’s phases and the sun’s position. With months lasting 29.5 days, this calendar guides crucial agricultural events, festivals, and rituals, offering invaluable guidance to farmers and society.

The Yellow Emperor’s agricultural legacy is equally remarkable. Under his reign, ancient Chinese farmers advanced irrigation systems, refined crop cultivation techniques, and introduced innovations like the plow. His emphasis on agriculture as the cornerstone of a stable and prosperous society laid the foundation for China’s enduring agricultural success. Unfortunately, his essential message about farming has been obscured by the misplacement and order of the zodiac animals, along with the incorrect timeline. The key lies in using his lunisolar calendar, not a conventional 12-year cycle.

By comprehending the Yellow Emperor’s lunisolar calendar and zodiac and aligning them with understanding the animals’ peak mating cycles, one can discern the profound connection to a Fertility Wheel embedded in this system.

The tools in Durgas hands

Stephen’s research journey also led him to explore various religions, where he recognized parallels with the Hindu goddess Durga. In Durga’s many hands, he discovered symbols and tools representing monthly tasks, much like the Fertility Wheel, but they were not in the correct order to serve as an agricultural guide. By aligning these elements correctly, Stephen aims to reveal a profound agricultural message woven into the fabric of ancient civilizations.

While understanding the Fertility Wheel, Stephen consistently had dreams of a goddess riding a tiger or lion. A quick search led him to Durga, depicted with tools in her hands—tools he recognized, although they seemed misplaced and often in the wrong hands.

Starting with spring, Stephen noticed a wand in Durga’s hand, similar to Inanna’s, symbolizing the season of renewal. For the summer solstice, he found a bow and arrow, akin to Dumuzid’s symbols. A trident represented fish, and the Horn of Plenty symbolized sheep, goats, deer, and the fall equinox. There was even a shell and a tiger or lion depiction to mark the winter solstice.

With a bit more research, Stephen realigned these tools to reflect farming rather than war. 

He placed the items in Durga’s hands in the correct positions and appropriate hands, revealing their true purpose: to help people understand farming. Like the Fertility Wheel, Durga’s tools offered guidance on agricultural practices, a knowledge that had been lost over time. Once the tools and their representations are seen in this context, the connection becomes clear and unmistakable.

About the book Fertility Wheel

A Word from Stephen and his NEW Theory

My theory centers on the premise that the original symbols served as a practical guide, a tool meticulously crafted to assist farmers, ranchers, and shepherds in comprehending the intricacies of agriculture through a concise set of 12 symbols. When the symbols are aligned correctly, it becomes a Fertility Wheel. The enlightened path is easy to follow and understand even if you do not speak the language or understand the words.

Exploring the intricate origins and meanings of the symbols, I discovered the precise months or seasons of the original zodiac symbols, forming a guide for animal mating and crop farming. This alignment, creating an ancient farmer’s guide or almanac, is a roadmap for optimal breeding of common farm animals and planting seasons for wheat and grain.

Farming, or crop and animal husbandry, emerged as a crucial undertaking for survival. Successful cultivation demands meticulous knowledge of soil preparation, seed selection, and harvesting techniques. Understanding which seeds to use and when to plant them could determine the survival or starvation of a community.

How do you see Inanna, the Goddess of Fertility?


The goddess Inanna, a central figure in Sumerian mythology, has been known by several names across different cultures and time periods. In Akkadian and Babylonian mythology, she is referred to as Ishtar, sharing attributes such as love, beauty, sex, fertility, war, justice, and political power. In Canaanite and Phoenician cultures, she is known as Astarte, similarly associated with love, fertility, and war.

In Greek and Roman mythology, Inanna’s characteristics are echoed in the goddesses Aphrodite and Venus, respectively, both of whom are deities of love, beauty, and desire. In ancient Syrian religion, she is linked to Atargatis, a goddess of fertility often depicted as a mermaid-like figure. Another ancient Mesopotamian variant of her name is Innina. She has been know by other names as well. As her worship spread, Inanna’s influence and attributes evolved, leading to these various names and associations across different regions and eras. 

The Fertility Wheel

It was easy to figure out and to understand.

Stephen’s lifelong fascination with ancient myths, cultures, and the stars has been a journey of discovery and intrigue. From devouring books to indulging in shows like Ancient Aliens and tuning into channels like the History Channel and Gaia, he immersed himself in the mysteries of the past. 

Over time, Stephen couldn’t ignore the common pictograms of Zodiac symbols across different cultures and their potential significance beyond mere fortune-telling. It dawned on him that these symbols might hold deeper agricultural and seasonal wisdom.

Playing with his star tracker app one day, Stephen made a fascinating observation. He was in the exact correct longitude, and the stars showed the correct time or season for each pictogram.

Despite these revelations, Stephen didn’t act on his insights immediately. It wasn’t until he noticed the nine-month gap between the symbol of a woman and the symbol of twins that everything clicked. Realizing the woman symbol represented Inanna, the goddess of fertility, childbirth, sex, and more, and the twins should be represented by newborns, not adults or teens. He saw the connection to human gestation periods.

This realization spurred Stephen to research more into the mating behaviors of seasonal breeders depicted on so many zodiacs, seeking to understand their peak mating times.

The position of certain Zodiac symbols coincided with peak seasons for animal mating.

The horse (centaur) was shown during the mares’ peak mating season. All land animals are shown during their peak mating period of the year. These animals include the horses, sheep, goats, and more. The symbol for crabs aligned with shrimp and crab seasons for catching and eating. 

Yet, he found solace in the symbolic importance of the saying, “Water brings fertility to the land”. The representation of water on the fertility wheel aligns precisely with the celebration of the annual flooding of the Nile in Egypt on August 15th.

Thus, the concept of the “Fertility Wheel” was born in Stephen’s mind. As he continued his studies, he came to understand that the alignment of Zodiac symbols with the sun, rather than the stars, was crucial. This alignment transformed the Zodiac into a perpetual Farmer’s Almanac, a guide to agricultural cycles and fertility, transcending cultural and geographic boundaries.
