stonehenge and scale

The stone circle of stonehenge is about 314 ft in circumference.This is 100 x Pi - we would expect
Pi to be associated with a circle.If the circle is a year of 365 days then one foot= 7/6 days
because 7/6 x 314 = 365.The lintels on top of the vertical stones are 16 ft at their tops.
Using 7/6 as the scale for stonehenge then 7/6 x 16 =18.66.This matters because 18.66 years is the time
it takes for one lunar metonic cycle (for the moon to come back to the same place in the sky relative to the stars.
If we take the tallest trilithon in the horseshoe at stonehenge (24ft) then 7/6 x 24 = 28. This could be a 28 day lunar monthly cycle
from new moon to full moon and back again.It is of interest to note that there are 56 Aubrey holes in a circle at stonehenge and that 56 = 2 x 28.
56 months is 1/4 of a Saros eclipse cycle where the moon and sun meet again in exactly the same way during eclipse .
The moon and sun coming together is a kind of mating and so would be associated with fertilty.
