Sextans and Octans
The Sextant Star Compass and The Octant Navigator's Star Compass
Once again another harmonious pair was placed into the heaves by our ancestors, or cousins as it may be for a good majority of world without any European Ancestors. Nonetheless these two providential pairs align in more than one way - in that 'Tri-Fecta Triple Crown Way.'
1. First they are basically the same thing, a navigator's star compass.
2. Second they are perpendicular to each other, as the Sextant is on the Equator while the Octant is on the South Pole.
3. Finally they are on opposite Galactic Factions; Sextant is on North Galactic - M-87 Galactic Supercluster Capitol Side while Octant is on the Southern Galactic - Neighbor Andromeda Galaxy Side.
Sextans astrological symbol has three inner spaces which is halfway to six, that reflects the Six in Sextant's name. Likewise, Octans has four inner spaces which is half way to eight, that reflect the Eight in Octant's name as with the eight legged fish - the Octopus.
