I took a look at the binding of the zodiac pages, and, indeed, it seems
that my proposal that Aries would be Capricorn and Taurus=Aries is
impossible because of the structure of the folios.
However, I now believe that the division of Aries and Taurus, plus several
other features, might have something to do with the ancient division of a
year into 4, 8 and 16 parts.
I wrote my notes on a web page for those who are interested:
Be careful before assuming any link between Celtic and an eightfold
division of the year, as this doesn't seem to be supported by any actual
evidence (I posted on this back in August):-
IMO, stregheria remains a far more likely source for this "eightness",
though I readily admit that the argument for that is far from won just yet. :-o
