Welcome to the Key of Solomon

Babylonian Origins of the Eight Pointed Cross

The Babylonians worshipped the god 'Bel'. The Syrians called this god 'Baal' and, like the Egyptian goddesses Hathor Isis and Bat, was associated with bull worshipping. The sacred meaning of Baal has been lost in the mist of history, hence the Babylonian confusion (Tower of Babel). The Greek rendition of the word Babel translates not only into 'Confusion but also into the 'Gate of Bel', the gate of the god Bel. In Hebrew, 'Ba-el' means "Gate of God." All of these gods and goddesses were associated with a bull myth and represented Taurus around the time the Vernal Equinox Sun was in the Silver Gate in 4468 BC.

The Celtic druid Beltaine festival probably has its origins in the celebration of the rebirth of the Babylonian God Bel (as in "Beltain") at the Vernal Equinox in 4468 BC. Beltaine was a cross quarter day celebrated on the first of May when huge bonfires were lit on holy hills to celebrate the start of the summer season. By the time druids celebrated Beltaine, the original celebration date and its Babylonian sacred origins and significance (Great Celestial Conjunction) was lost in the Babylonian confusion. At the first of November, the start of the winter season was celebrated by the druids and this festival was called "Samhain." Neo-pagans, known as "Wiccan," later adopted the Beltaine festival. They celebrated the death and rebirth of their horned God, mentioned by many occultists such as Eliphas Levi, by the name "Baphomet." The horned God echoes the original veneration of the horns of the bull by the Sumerians, Babylonians and Egyptians, but the exact significance of the horns (as in the Isis mythology) and their symbolic reference to the birthplace of the Sun, was lost.

It's therefore striking to notice that the sacredness of the eight-pointed cross was "re-discovered" by the Wiccans since they celebrate eight solar holidays forming an eight pointed cross in a solar year associated with the equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days (halfway in between the equinox and the solstice)

Wheel of the Year
Wicca wheel of the year

The origins of the eight-pointed cross and its solar significance, however, must be dated back to the Sumerians and Babylonians, who worshipped the Sun God 'Utu' (Sumerian) or 'Shamash' (Babylonian). The symbol of Utu/Shamash was an eight-pointed cross . This eight-pointed cross was composed of two superimposed four-pointed crossed of what the authors believe to be a symbol of the Great Celestial Conjunction.

Utu/Shamash, the ancient Sun God of Mesopotamia
Ezekiel’s vision

Herschel explains on his website that the vision of Ezekiel recounted in the Old Testament is in fact the recount of an ancient visitation from space. Herschel is in good company with this hypothesis; many authors before him have suggested exactly the same thing. In fact it makes perfect sense since Ezekiel in his vision did see a wheel within a wheel coming down from the sky out of a whirlwind surrounded by fire. In addition the wheel had portals (eyes) around the wheel suggestion strongly that it could be a UFO.

Ezekiel 1:18 (KJ version) 18As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings [were] full of eyes round about them four.


The alien visitation explanation for Ezekiel’s vision falls short, however, when one takes the astrological connotations of Ezekiel’s vision into account. The eyes around the wheel are not portals of a UFO but the constellations along the zodiac. First of all, Ezekiel’s vision happens on the bank of a river. While Herschel has failed to recognise the importance of the river in all of his star maps except for his initial discovery of the astrological meaning of the pyramids along the Nile, the reader of this article will by now be alarmed that the river in Ezekiel’s vision may in fact be a metaphor for the Milky Way.

Ezekiel 1:3 (KJ Version) 3The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.

Ezekiel explains that he saw four winged creatures with four faces each in his vision. They had the overall appearance of a human but they had the feet of a calf.

Ezekiel 1:7 (KJ Version) 7And their feet [were] straight feet; and the sole of their feet [was] like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

The four faces of each of the four creatures looked like this:

Ezekiel 1:10 (KJ Version) 10As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

These four faces are the four fixed signs of the zodiac, the face of a man (Aquarius), the face of a lion (Leo), the face of an ox (Taurus) and the face of an eagle (Aquila). Aquila is a constellation very close to Scorpio. Hence, the four faces of the four creatures in Ezekiel’s vision represent the so-called fixed signs of the zodiac (Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio) that form a perfect four-pointed cross. During a Great Celestial Conjunction when the Sun is on the Milky Way at the equinoxes and/or solstices, these four zodiac signs rise heliacally, meaning before the Sun. This is why the ancient fixed signs of the zodiac denote the Galactic Cross!

Taurus rises just before the Sun at the summer solstice of the Great Celestial Conjunction era-2012
Aquila rises just before the Sun at the winter solstice of the Great Celestial Conjunction era-2012

While the Sun resides in 5° Gemini (sidereal zodiac) at the summer solstice of 2012, Taurus is the last constellation visible before the Sun rises and blurs Gemini which is next to rise along with the Sun. This is why the ancients were more interested in the heliacal rising of constellations than the constellations of the actual conjunction with the Sun. It is even interesting to learn that Ezekiel could be referring exactly to the Milky Way ecliptic crossing in 5° Gemini (sidereal zodiac) and/or 5° Sagittarius when he writes:

Ezekiel 1:1 (KJ Version) 1Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth [month], in the fifth [day] of the month, as I [was] among the captives by the river of Chebar, [that] the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

Each zodiac sign spans 30° (thirtieth year) of the 360° of the zodiac. The Leo-Taurus-Aquarius-Scorpio cross in the zodiac divides the 12 signs in four groups of three (4th month) while the ecliptic Milky Way crossing itself occurs in 5° of the appropriate signs (fifth [day] of the month= +/- 30 days). Notice that he mentions the river (Milky Way) in the same sentence!

Ezekiel further writes about a wheel within a wheel:

Ezekiel 1:16 (KJ Version) 16The appearance of the wheels and their work [was] like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work [was] as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Suppose the wheel had four spokes (corresponding with the four faces of the creatures), than the wheel within a wheel could be referring to the superposition of two four-pointed crosses! More importantly, these are two separate four-pointed crosses since he’s referring to two wheels! One of these wheels was linked to the Earth!

Ezekiel 1:15 (KJ Version) 15Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

This wheel must be the equinox- solstice cross. In the article ‘Crucifying the Earth on the Galactic Cross’ (Smelyakov-Wicherink 2006) this cross is actually called the Earth Cross. The other wheel however was linked to the creatures with the four faces (representing the Galactic Cross):

Ezekiel 1:19 (KJ Version) 19And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

Earth Cross + Galactic Cross = eight-pointed cross (a wheel within a wheel)

It’s important to realize that there were four creatures each with the faces representing the fixed signs of the zodiac. These four creatures esoterically represent the four Great Celestial Conjunctions that occur within a Great Year when one of the wheels turns (Earth Cross) while the other is fixed (Galactic Cross). Exactly four times do the four spokes of the wheels overlap when the wheel within a wheel spins, and these moments thus represent the four Great Celestial Conjunctions.

Finally, Ezekiel spots God in the firmament. He appears in a bow in a cloud. The Milky Way is a bow that straddles the night sky from North to South. It was known to the ancients as either that great River in the sky or the big white cloud of the night sky.

Ezekiel 1:20 (KJ Version) 28As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so [was] the appearance of the brightness round about. This [was] the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw [it], I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

The four fixed signs of the zodiac are also mentioned in John’s Revelation:

Revelation 4:6-8 (KJ Version) 6And before the throne [there was] a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, [were] four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7And the first beast [was] like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast [was] like a flying eagle. 8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about [him]; and [they were] full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

This time the four beasts of the Apocalypse are associated with the End of Time (= end of precession cycle)! In Christian art, Christ is often depicted inside a ‘Vesica Pisces’ (representing birth) surrounded by the four beasts of the Apocalypse (representing the Galactic Cross). More surprisingly, often the eight-pointed cross, the wheel within a wheel is depicted as well! Art expressions like the one below are very common; and in many cases, either a four or eight-pointed cross is depicted on the book held in Jesus his hands!

. .
Christ inside the Vesica Pisces with an eight-pointed cross on the cover of the book. The twelve apostles esoterically refer to the twelve signs of the zodiac. There are eight pedaled ‘flowers’ all over the painting.


. .
Christ surrounded by the four beasts of the Apocalypse, The eight-pointed crosses occur in abundance on the rim of and inside the Vesica Pisces.

In all of these art expressions Christ always raises two fingers. What could be the meaning of these two fingers? Is he referring to the two twins Gemini which is his birth place in the precession cycle?

The central figure is always the double headed eagle, the sword is for killing the Dragon, can be shown with the omphalos egg, the cross, and even Jesus crucified, but Athanasius Kircher tells us what is it about on his arcanum manuscripts.


It's about magnetism, the eagles are the s-pira-ls, pira is latin fire from the pyra-mid-dle.
So the left eagle is number 9 and the right one number 6, when they join in one they add 15 which is 1111 binary, 3 =11 binary so 33 years of Christ = 1111.

the Eagle

Aquila carrying Antinous in Urania's Mirror 1825

The English word eagle comes from Latin aquila. The word aquila, eagle, is believed to mean 'water-colored bird' and is related to Latin aqua-, water, as is Aquarius [Klein]. In Britain before 1678, the word eagle referred specifically to the Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos). The other native species, the white-tailed Eagle, being known as the erne [1] which is a sea eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) and a very close cousin of the American Bald Eagle. Aquila was a Roman military standard. Aquiline means having the characteristics of an eagle, or curved or hooked like an eagle's beak: as in 'an aquiline nose'.

From the Aquila name comes Eaglewood, Aquilaria agallocha, 'aloewood', from Spanish aguila, 'eagle'. The heartwood of Aquilaria species infected by certain fungi, is known as 'agarwood', agar, or Malay gaharu, and has a high commercial value for incense, perfume and traditional medicine. In Europe it was referred to as Lignum aquila (eagle-wood) or Agilawood, because of the similarity in sound of agila to gaharu.

Erne, a sea eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), is cognate with Greek ornis, 'bird', and German aar, eagle. And from a separate root the Greek word for eagle, aetos, is cognate with Latin avis, 'bird' [Klein under 'aviary']. The name of the alpha star of Aquila, Altair, is Arabic for 'the bird". The eagle is often regarded as the prototype of the bird as a species. The eagle is thought of as 'king of birds' and this might explain the reason why the word for eagle has cognates with the word for bird in some languages? Euripides (ca. 480 BC–406 BC) tells us that "the birds in general are the messengers of the gods, but the eagle is king, and interpreter of the great deity Jupiter" [2].

Greek ornis, meaning bird, is an extension of an ancient stem *orn-, cognate with Old High German aro, arn (modern German aar eagle), Old English earn eagle, Old Slavic orilu, Welsh eryr, and Hittite haras (genitive haranas), from the Indo-European root *or- 'Large bird'. Derivatives: erne (sea eagle, from Old English earn, eagle), ornitho- (bird, from Greek ornis, stem ornith-, bird), ornithology, Adler (eagle), Arnold. [Pokorny 1. er- 325. Watkins] In heraldry the allerion, meaning 'noble eagle' (German adal, 'noble', the -erion, related to erne) is an eagle with expanded wings.

Ganymede and the Eagle in a 3rd-century Roman mosaic, Nea Paphos, Cyprus. [1]


"I will raise you up on eagles wings" [Psalm 91:1-16].

The expression 'eagle-eyed' describes the eagle who sees all from a distance. In mythology the Eagle acted like a talent scout for Zeus, instructed to find the most beautiful boy to be cup-bearer on Mount Olympus. With his 'eagle eyes', and far-seeing vision that can spot a rabbit three miles away (but has poor close-up vision), metaphorically possessing foresight, and hence the ability to see the potential. He captured Ganymedes (Aquarius) 'the most beautiful boy', in his talons.

Livy tells how an eagle seized the cap of Lucius Tarquinius, flew up with it into the sky, then descended and replaced it on his head. His wife Tanaquil, who knew how to interpret omens, told him to look for a high and majestic destiny, for such was the import of the eagle's action. He went on to become the seventh king of Rome. Lucius Tarquinius was, in effect, inaugurated by the eagle. Inaugurate from Latin auger, seems to have meant literally "one who performs with birds," from avis 'bird' [3].

"Aquila the Eagle is called so from the acuteness (acumine) of his eyes, for he is said to have such wonderful eyesight that, when he is poised above the seas on motionless plume - not even visible to the human gaze - yet from such a height he can see the little fishes swimming, and, coming down like a thunderbolt, he can carry off his captured prey to the shore, on the wing." [The Book of Beasts: Being a Translation from a Latin Bestiary of the Twelfth Century, p.105]

Eagles are also said to represent the rise towards Heaven:

"It was a widely used custom in many ancient cultures to release eagles at the funeral of a ruler: the flight of an eagle, as the body was cremated, symbolized the departure of the soul to live among the gods. In Christian iconography the eagle is often seen to symbolize John the Evangelist, the ascension of the prophet Elijah, and the ascension of Jesus Christ" [4].

Iðunn is carried off by Þjazi in this artwork by H. Theaker, 1920. Wikipedia

Aquila is said to be the Eagle that preyed on the liver of Prometheus in the Caucasian Mountains; and had the titles Aquila Promethei and Tortor Promethei: and The Eagle Kaukasios [Allen, Star Names].

Zeus baiting Typhon said: "let crafty Prometheus leave his chains, and come with you; the bold bird who makes hearty meals off that rejuvenescent liver shall show him the way to heaven" [5].

In Norse mythology the giant Thiassi had the ability to turn himself into an eagle. Thiassi arrived in eagle shape and snatched Idunn and flew away with her to his home in Thrymheim [6].

Hevelius, Firmamentum, 1690

The relationship between the Emperor Hadrian and Antinous was compared with that between Zeus and Ganymedes (Aquarius) (the emperor was, after all, considered to be a god) [6] Ganymedes is identified with Aquarius

"Antinous was a former constellation south of Aquila. In modern times, Antinous was variously considered an asterism within Aquila, or a separate constellation, until IAU formalized the constellations in 1930, when Antinous was discarded." [5] "The origins of this obsolete constellation date back to the year 132 and the Emperor Hadrian. He had this constellation placed in the sky to honor a favorite youth of his court, who according to myth sacrificed himself in order to prolong the life of the emperor. Later astronomers recognized this constellation as the youth Ganymede, who the Greek god Zeus had brought to Olympus by his eagle Aquila, in order to serve as cup-bearer to the gods. The stars of this constellation have since been given to the constellation of Aquila." [Obsolete Constellations

Aetites (Greek aetos, an eagle), also called Aquilaeus or eagle-stone, is a stone said to have magical properties, particularly connected to childbirth, and in the Mesopotamian legend of Etana travels on the back of an eagle to find a herb to ease his wife's pain in childbirth:

"the hero, Etana, wanting to ease the pain his wife was feeling during childbirth, rode on the back of the god Shamash's eagle to the heavens to retrieve a medicinal plant that would relieve her pain. The magical plant was only found in the upper reaches of heaven where Anu lived. While Etana rode on the back of the eagle he noticed that the earth was becoming smaller and smaller, lost his nerve, and according to some versions of the story, his grip. One description of the legend has him living for 1,560 years and leaving only two children. A second version has him crashing to earth for daring to attempt to enter the realm of Anu. The mythical plant may actually be the poisonous mountain arnica which, when taken in controlled doses, does ease the pain of childbirth" [The Glorious Constellations, Giuseppe Maria Sesti].

Giuseppe Maria Sesti postulates that the mythical plant may be arnica; the prefix arn- resembles Old English earn, eagle, as in the name Arnold.

AquiilaThe word prayer is a possibility? Eagles, the chief birds of prey, were believed to be carriers of prayers to the sky [6]. "Medieval mystics often invoked the eagle to evoke the vision of God and compared prayer with the eagle's soaring flight into the sunlight" [7]. Prayer is from the Indo-European root *prek-, 'To ask, entreat'. Derivatives: pray, prayer¹, precarious, deprecate, imprecate, prie-dieu, (these words from *prex, prayer), postulate, expostulate, (these words from Latin postulare, to ask, request), postulant (a candidate for admission into a religious order.) [Pokorny 4. perk- 821. Watkins]

It seems that being carried by an eagle is a precarious position to be in. While Mesopotamian Etana was being carried heavenwards by an eagle, he became afraid, the eagle faltered, and they fell to earth, the second ascent was successful. And Zeus in the form of an eagle was not too sure of himself either while carrying Ganymedes; "Zeus appeared to be anxious as he flew through the air, holding the terrified boy with claws that tore not, gently moving the wings and sparing his strength, for he feared Ganymede might slip and fall headlong from the sky" (Nonnus, Dionysiaca 25.430 ) [8].

Aetites (Greek aetos, an eagle), also called Aquilaeus or eagle stone, is a stone said to have magical properties, particularly connected to childbirth. Supposed at one time to form part of an eagle's nest. Pliny mentions them. It is said that without these stones eagles cannot hatch their eggs. The stones are a hollow oval nodule of yellow clay ironstone, the nucleus of which, being of a different texture, had by drying become detached from the surrounding crust so as to rattle loosely. There was an ancient belief that the eagle found it necessary to have one in her nest before she could lay her eggs.

Maybe the aetites stone are similar to Russian nesting doll (matryoshka), where the top and bottom come apart to reveal a smaller, similar doll inside that similarly comes apart, and so on. Philosophers and theologians have conjectured that every individual existed as a homunculus in Adam's testicles (spermism) or Eve's ovaries (ovism), the hypothesis that each embryo could contain even smaller embryos ad infinitum, like a Matryoshka doll; spermists claimed the homonculus must come from the man, and ovists, who located the homonculus in the ova [9].

The eagle is Jove's guardian, called his armsbearer (armiger) because so full of heat that the coldest giant stone rattles, when warmed under a breeding eagle, as if an egg, according to Lucan [Medieval Mythography Jane Chance. P. 313].

Isidore says:

"The eagle (aquila) is named from the acuity of its vision (acumen oculorum), for it is said that they have such sight that when they soar above the sea on unmoving wings, and invisible to human sight, from such a height they can see small fish swimming, and descending like a bolt seize their prey and carry it to shore with their wings. It is said that the eagle does not even avert its gaze from the sun; it offers its hatchlings, suspended from its talons, to the rays of the sun, and the ones it sees holding their gaze unmoving it saves as worthy of the eagle family, but those who turn their gaze away, it throws out as inferior." [The Etymologies of Isidore of Seville, 7th century AD, p.264.]

Porphyry on why Zeus is pictured holding an eagle in his right hand:

"because he is master of the gods who traverse the air, as the eagle is master of the birds that fly aloft - or a victory, because he is himself victorious over all things." [On Images, Porphyry, trans. E.H. Gifford]

Aquilo is the word the Romans used for the north wind, which the Greeks called Boreas, it brought the cold winter air. Aquilo is believed to be from aquilus, 'dark-colored', as aquila, 'eagle', properly means 'the dark-colored (bird)':

In many countries the wind has been conceived as a mighty bird of prey which seizes and carries things away. In Greek aetos, the eagle, must have originally been the keen-winged bird, being akin to aetes, wind (from aemi, to blow), just as among the Romans Aquilo, the sharp northeaster was closely related to aquila, the eagle, the idea of forcible keenness being common to both (root ac, sharp, in ac-er, ac-uo, etc.). Quite similarly in Etruscan andas, the north-wind, antae, winds, seem to claim kinship with antar, the eagle; and in Finnish Pulmri, a personification of the north wind, wears the form of an eagle. [Some curios from a word-collector's cabinet, Abram Smythe Palmer, p.149-150]

The astrological influences of the constellation given by Manilius:

"Then soars to the heights the bird of mighty Jupiter as though, winging its way with wonted effort, it were carrying thunderbolts; it is a bird worthy of Jupiter and the sky, which it furnishes with awful armaments." [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century A.D, p.31]

Now I shall tell of the constellation of the Eagle : it rises on the left [translator's note: an error: Aquila, a northern constellation, rises on Aquarius's right] of the youth who pours, whom once it carried off from earth [the poet here identifies Aquarius as Ganymede], and with wings outspread it hovers above its prey [translator's note: another error (shared with Hyginus, Poet. Astr. 2. 16): Aquila hovers above Capricorn and Sagittarius rather than Aquarius]. This bird brings back the thunderbolts which Jupiter has flung and fights in the service of heaven. He that is born on earth in the hour of its rising, will grow up bent on spoil and plunder, won even with bloodshed; he will draw no line between peace and war, between citizen and foe, and when he is short of men to kill he will engage in butchery of beast. He is a law unto himself, and rushes violently wherever his fancy takes him; in his eyes to show contempt for everything merits praise. Yet, should perchance his aggressiveness be enlisted in a righteous cause, depravity will turn into virtue, and he will succeed in bringing wars to a conclusion and enriching his country with glorious triumphs. And, since the Eagle does not wield, but supplies weapons, seeing that it brings back and restores to Jupiter the fires and bolts he has hurled, in time of war such a man will be the aide of a king or of some mighty general, and his strength will render them important service". [Astronomica, Manilius, 1st century AD, book 5, p.341.].

from Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, 1889, Richard H. Allen

Aquila, the Eagle, is the French Aigle, the German Adler, and the Italian Aquila, next to and westward from the Dolphin, is shown flying toward the east and across {Page 56} the Milky Way; its southern stars constituting the now discarded Antinous. Early representations added an arrow held in the Eagle's talons; and Hevelius included a bow and arrow in his description; but on the Heis map the Youth is held by Aquila, for the Germans still continue this association in their combined title der Adier mit dem Antinous.

Our constellation is supposed to be represented by the bird figured on a Euphratean uranographic stone of about 1200 B.C., and known on the tablets as Idkhu Zamama, the Eagle, the Living Eye.

It always was known as Aquila by the Latins, and by their poets as Jovis Ales and Jovis Nutrix, the Bird, and the Nurse, of Jove; Jovis Armiger and Armiger Ales, the Armor-bearing Bird of Jove in this god's conflict with the giants; while Ganymedes Raptrix and Servans Antinoum are from the old stories that the Eagle carried Ganymede to the heavens and stood in attendance on Jove. Ovid made it Merops, King of Cos, turned into the Eagle of the sky (he was inconsolable over the death of his wife, and Hera placed him among the stars); but others thought it some Aethiopian king like Cepheus, and with the same heavenly reward.

As the eagles often were confounded with the vultures in Greek and Roman ornithology, at least in nomenclature, Aquila also was Vultur volans, the stars beta and gamma, on either side of alpha, marking the outstretched wings; this title appearing even as late as Flamsteed's day, and its translation, the Flying Grype, becoming the Old English name, especially with the astrologers, who ascribed to it mighty virtue.

Aetos, the Eagle, in a much varied orthography, was used for our constellation by all the Greeks; while poetically it was Dios Ornis, the Bird of Zeus; and Pindar had Oinon Basileus, the King of Birds, which, ornithologically, has come to our day. Later on it was Basanos and Basanismos (from basanizo; torture. Basanos is Greek for touchstone. Such a touchstone may be a piece of slate used to test gold, or it may be a metaphor for torture or torment to test truthfulness [1]), all kindred titles signifying Torture, referred by Hyde to the story of the eagle which preyed on the liver of Prometheus. Similarly we find Aquila Promethei and Tortor Promethei; but Ideler said that this idea came from a confounding by Scaliger of the Arabic Ikab, Torture, and Okab, Eagle.

Dupuis fancifully thought that its name was given when it was near the summer solstice, and that the bird of highest flight was chosen to express the greatest elevation of the sun; and he asserted that the famous three Stymphalian Birds of mythology were represented by Aquila, Cygnus, and Vultur cadens, our Lyra, still located together in the sky; the argument being that these are all paranatellons of Sagittarius, which is the fifth in the line of zodiacal constellations beginning with Leo, the Nemean lion, the object of Hercules' first labor, while the slaying of the birds was the fifth. Appropriately enough, like so much other stellar material, these creatures {Page 57} came from Arabia, migrating thence either to the Insula Martis, or to Lake Stymphalis, where Hercules encountered them.

Thompson thinks that the fable, in Greek ornithology, of the eagle attacking the swan, but defeated by it, is symbolical of "Aquila, which rises in the East, immediately after Cygnus, but, setting in the West, goes down a little while before that more northern constellation."

A similar thought was in the ancient mind as to the eagle in opposition to the dolphin and the serpent; their stellar counterparts, Aquila, Delphinus, and Serpens, also being thus relatively situated.

In connection with the story of Ganymede, the eagle appeared on coins of Chalcis, Dardanos, and Ilia; and generally on those of Mallos in Cilicia and of Camarina; while it is shown perched on the Dolphin on coins of Sinope and other towns, chiefly along the Black Sea and Hellespont. One, bearing the prominent stars, was struck in Rome, 94 B.C., by Manius Aquilius Nepos, the design being evidently inspired by his name; and a coin of Agrigentum bears Aquila, with Cancer on the reverse, — the one setting as the other rises.

To the Arabians the classical figure became AlOkab, probably their Black Eagle, Chilmead citing this as Alhhakhab; while their Al Nasr al Tair, the Flying Eagle, was confined to alpha, beta, and gamma; although this was contrary to their custom of using only one star for a sky figure. Grotius called the whole Altair and Alcair; Bayer said Alcar and Atair. Al Achsasi, however, mentioned it as Al Ghurab, the Crow, or Raven, probably a late Arabian name, and the only instance that I have seen of its application to the stars of our Aquila.

Persian titles were Alub, Gherges, and Shahin tarazed, the Star-striking Falcon of Al Nasr al Din, but now divided for beta (Alshain) and gamma (Tarazed). In the Ilkhanian Tables, as perhaps elsewhere, it was Gups Petomenos, the Flying Vulture; the Turks call it Taushaugjil, their Hunting Eagle; — all these for the three bright stars.

The Hebrews knew it as Neshr, an Eagle, Falcon, or Vulture; and the Chaldee Paraphrase asserted that it was figured on the banners of Dan; but as these tribal symbols properly were for the zodiac, Scorpio usually was ascribed to Dan. This confusion may have originated from the fact, asserted by Sir William Drummond, that in Abraham's day Scorpio was figured as an Eagle. Caesius said that Aquila represented the Eagle of military Rome, or the Eagle of Saint John; but Julius Schiller had already made it Saint Catherine the Martyr; and Erhard Weigel, a {Page 58} professor at Jena in the 17th century, started a new set of constellations, based on the heraldry then so much in vogue, among which was the Brandenburg Eagle, made up from Aquila, Antinous, and the Dolphin (Delphinus). Hevelius said that the stellar Eagle was a fitting representation of that bird on the Polish and Teutonic coats of arms.

The Chinese have here the Draught Oxen, mentioned in the book of odes entitled She King, compiled 500 years before Christ by K'ung fu tsu, Kung the Philosopher (Confucius), — the passage being rendered by the Reveiend Doctor James Legge:

Brilliant show the Draught Oxen,

But they do not serve to draw our carts;

and the three bright stars are their Cowherd, for whom the Magpies' Bridge gives access to the Spinning Damsel, our Lyra, across the River of the Sky, the Milky Way. This story appears in various forms; stars in the Swan (Cygnus) sometimes being substituted for those in the Eagle, Lyra becoming the Weaving Sisters.

The Korean version, with more detail, turns the Cowherd into a Prince, and the Spinster into his Bride, both banished to different parts of the sky by the irate father-in-law, but with the privilege of an annual meeting if they can cross the River. This they accomplish through the friendly aid of the good-natured magpies, who congregate from all parts of the kingdom during the 7th moon, and on its 7th night form the fluttering bridge across which the couple meet, lovers still, although married. When the day is over they return for another year to their respective places of exile, and the bridge breaks up; the birds scattering to their various homes with bare heads, the feathers having been worn off by the trampling feet of the Prince and his retinue. But as all this happens during the birds' molting-time, the bare heads are not to be wondered at; nor, as it is the rainy season, the attendant showers which, if occurring in the morning, the story-tellers attribute to the tears of the couple in the joy of meeting; or if in the evening, to those of sorrow at parting. Should a magpie anywhere be found loitering around home at this time, it is pursued by the children with well-merited ill-treatment for its selfish indifference to its duty. Nor must I forget to mention that the trouble in the royal household originated from the Prince's unfortunate investment of the paternal sapekes in a very promising scheme to tap the Milky Way and divert the fluid to nourish distant stars.

Another version is given by the Reverend Doctor William Elliot Griffis in his Japanese Fairy World, where the Spinning Damsel is the industrious princess Shokujo, separated by the Heavenly River from her herd-boy lover, {Page 59} Kinjin. But here the narrator makes Capricorn and the star Wega represents the lovers.

The native Australians knew the whole of Aquila as Totyarguil, one of their mythical personages, who, while bathing, was killed by a kelpie; their stellar Eagle being Sirius.

It was in the stars of our constellation, to the northwest of Altair, that Professor Edward E. Bamard discovered a comet from its trail on a photograph taken at the Lick Observatory on the 12th of October, 1892 — the first ever found by the camera.

What are they? Ezekiel describes Cherubim as a composite of man, ox, lion and eagle. Opinions vary as to what they represent, or even if they are Cherubim. The According to one theory,  the man is Aquarius, the ox is Taurus, the lion is Leo and the eagle is Ophiuchus in Scorpio-claiming that the eagle is an ancient form of Ophiuchus. On the surface, it seems to make sense. Each of the constellations is three months apart as if they represent the four cardinal directions. It's bothersome that the writer doesn't explain his source of the claim that Ophiuchus is the eagle. Then there is the theory that based on the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh, Scorpio is the man. This boundary stone below left shows a scorpion with a man's body. Below right, Wikipedia suggests Cherubim where originally statues found in pairs protecting doorways. That would apply as a statue representation.

10He rode on a cherub, and flew; he came swiftly upon the wings of the wind. (Psalm 18:10)

23The nave and the holy place had each a double door.
24The doors had two leaves apiece, two swinging leaves for each door.
25And on the doors of the nave were carved cherubim and palm trees, such as were carved on the walls; and there was a canopy of wood in front of the vestibule outside. (Ezek. 23-25)

I suggest that all of the above theories are false. The evidence on this page argues for Cherubim composed of Taurus the bull, Leo the lion, Orion the man and Aquila the eagle. Genesis tells us that Cherubim were stationed "to guard the way to the Tree of Life." The evidence will demonstrate that the way is the Milky Way. Each is stationed at a strategic point on the Milky Way: beginning, end and two flanks. There is a fifth constellation, Perseus with his sword, who guards the middle.

Cherubim described

Genesis tells us Cherubim were placed in the Garden of Eden to guard the way to the tree of life (not the Tree of Life itself). God placed a flaming sword turning every way to guard the way to the tree of life. In other words, there is a path of some sort to the Tree of Life. We will return to the sword later.

24He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. (Gen. 3:24)

In chapter one, Ezekiel describes "living creatures" as having the face of a man in the front, the face of a lion on the right, the face of an ox on the left, and the face of an eagle at the back. He doesn't explicitly call them Cherubim. We need more information.

The cloud describes the Milky Way. "A stormy wind out of the north" means a spirit from the north side of the Zodiac. Of course, terms like "burning coals of fire" and "flash of lightning" refer to the stars.

4As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness round about it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming bronze.
5And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the form of men,
6but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings.
7Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like burnished bronze.
8Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus:
9their wings touched one another; they went every one straight forward, without turning as they went.
10As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man in front; the four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle at the back.
11Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above; each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies.
12And each went straight forward; wherever the spirit would go, they went, without turning as they went.
13In the midst of the living creatures there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches moving to and fro among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
14And the living creatures darted to and fro, like a flash of lightning. (Ezek. 1:4-14)

The River of Heaven described

In the passage below, the river that interests us is the River Pishon. We recognize the Tigris and Euphrates. As for the River Gihon, the Zodiac has a second river in the southern hemisphere called the River Eridanus (not shown here).

10A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers.
11The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12and the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there.
13The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which flows around the whole land of Cush.
14And the name of the third river is Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. (Gen. 2:10-14)

3Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the house, when the man went in; and a cloud filled the inner court.
4And the glory of the LORD went up from the cherubim to the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the glory of the LORD. (Ezek. 10:3-4)

Ezekiel sees Cherubim by the river Chebar. Each has four faces and four wings. The firmament (celestial sphere) was over their heads. The best that I can make of the number four is that it represents four cardinal directions as the constellations rotate. The wheels symbolise the stars turning around the pole star.

15And the cherubim mounted up. These were the living creatures that I saw by the river Chebar.
16And when the cherubim went, the wheels went beside them; and when the cherubim lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the wheels did not turn from beside them.
17When they stood still, these stood still, and when they mounted up, these mounted up with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in them. (Ezek. 10:15-17)

Ezekiel identifies the living creatures by the river Chebar as Cherubim.

20These were the living creatures that I saw underneath the God of Israel by the river Chebar; and I knew that they were cherubim.
21Each had four faces, and each four wings, and underneath their wings the semblance of human hands.
22And as for the likeness of their faces, they were the very faces whose appearance I had seen by the river Chebar. They went every one straight forward.
22Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of a firmament, shining like crystal, spread out above their heads.
23And under the firmament their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another; and each creature had two wings covering its body. (Ezek. 10:20-23)

Putting it alltogether

We have a map of the north celestial sphere below and a lot of descriptions from Genesis and Ezekiel. For the thesis to work, the descriptions should fit the map. I started with the assumption that the Milky Way is the river of heaven by coloring it blue. If it is a wrong assumption, the other pieces won't fit. The picture is inverted from the way we would see it from earth. The arc at the bottom represents the sun's ecliptic rising above us. Assume a viewing position in the middle on earth looking up towards the arc in the south.

Three descriptions fit the Milky Way. Genesis says the River Pishon flows out of Eden - so does the Milky Way in the sense that it extends beyond the Zodiac. Ezekiel tells us to look for Cherubim by the River Chebar. Genesis says the Cherubim and the flaming sword are in Eden to guard the way to the Tree of Life - the Milky Way. The flaming sword is on the east side where Genesis placed it.

From our viewer position, as Ezekiel described, we see the face of Orion in front of us, the eagle in the back, the lion to the right, and the ox to the left. Cherubim are guarding the river of heaven, or as Genesis put it, the way to the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life will be identified below.


Revelation calls the Milky Way the "water of life" that flows "from the throne of God." To see where the throne is, follow Orion from the picture above to the picture below. At the high end of the Milky Way, the sun rises over Orion's body, to where his head would be. The outline of Lepus below looks like a throne, and the outline of Gemini looks like a pharaoh's hat.

1Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Rev. 22:1-2)

So then, the Milky Way is the river to the Tree of Life. In other parlance, it is the cloud of heaven from where Jesus will come to whisk believers off to heaven. It is the path that takes the souls of the dead to meet God. Perseus with his sword guards the river in the middle. The Cherubim guard the river at each end and at the sides. The lion is on the right and the ox is on the left, both watching the river. Orion, the man, guards the river by the front and Aquila the eagle guards the back. When the sun is at the summer solstice over Orion's body, God is said to be on his throne.

16"O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, who art enthroned above the cherubim, thou art the God, thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth. (Isa. 37:16)

Genesis places the Tree of Life in the midst of the garden. That would imply in the center at the pole. We can imagine the imaginary pole line as the trunk of the tree. The celestial sphere or firmament represents the branches. And, according to Revelation, the twelve constellations of the Zodiac are the fruit.

9And out of the ground the LORD God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Gen. 2:9)


The brightest stars in these constellations are
fairly bright. With #1 ranking as the brightest:


Aldebaran, 0.85 pale red, #14
Altair, 0.77, white, #12,
Betelgeuse 0.5 red, #10
Mirfak, 1.8, brilliant yellow, #33
Regulus 1.4 blue-white, #21

Perhaps they serve to light the way up
the River of Life.

Ok. La "Puerta del Hombre" sería la constelación de Orión (que tiene la forma esquemática de una figura humana) y la fecha es el 20 de junio (solsticio). 

Y la "Puerta de Dios" sería el centro de la Galaxia (el Dios Hunab-ku de los Maya) que desde la Tierra se ve entre Sagitario, Ofiuco y Escorpio (cuya estrella más brillante es Antares) y el Sol pasa por encima cada 19 de junio.

Y en esta vista más amplia vemos las dos "puertas" a la vez.

And this last example, which matches the example you posted, is Carlist.

Freemasonry has conscripted a LOT of its symbolism from other sources.

The central figure is always the double headed eagle, the sword is for killing the Dragon, can be shown with the omphalos egg, the cross, and even Jesus crucified, but Athanasius Kircher tells us what is it about on his arcanum manuscripts.


It's about magnetism, the eagles are the s-pira-ls, pira is latin fire from the pyra-mid-dle.
So the left eagle is number 9 and the right one number 6, when they join in one they add 15 which is 1111 binary, 3 =11 binary so 33 years of Christ = 1111.
As always the rhombic dodecahedron pomegranate hypercube of Mr Da Vinci explosive Christ code.
The arrow is on 60 degrees, the equilateral triangle, 60, 60, 60 or 666, the number of the beast and man - counterclockwise spiral.

"porque, cuando Jonás estaba en la barriga del pez tres días y tres noches, así el Hijo de Hombre estará en el corazón de la tierra tres días y tres noches".

- Mateo12:40

Como acompañado por la historia del pez de Jesús, ayudando milagrosamente a sus discípulos a hacer una captura de 153 peces, este mismo hecho también es extrañamente logrado por Pitágoras quinientos años más temprano en una antigua leyenda registrada por el neo-platonista Porfirio. El propio Pitágoras prediciendo el número exacto de peces a ser cogidos, con el número 153 siendo un número sagrado Pitagórico, asociado con el "Vesica Piscis" o "Envase del Pez ".

PURIM, que aparece en el libro de Ester, tiene fuerte connotacion con el CARNAVAL PERO OBVIAMENTE QUE UN CONTEXTO JUDIO.
