    Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to project the astronomical daily orbits of stars through the centre of the main rose window of the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Chartres, tracing their trajectories on the cathedral’s floor plan. We geometrically show that in the astronomical epoch J1200 (close to the period when the cathedral was built), the labyrinth, transept, apse, ambulatory, horizon and main rose window of the cathedral align accurately with the astronomical pattern of the stars constituting the catasterism of ancient virgin goddesses - Elthor, Spica, Isis, Sirius and Adhara - belonging to the Taurus, Virgo and Canis Major constellations. The choice of stars is not speculative but objective in nature. Given the slowness of the Earth’s precessional motion and the stars’ proper movement in the sky, this correlation occurred every day of every year during the construction of the cathedral. © 2016, Ecozone, OAIMDD.
