Secrets of Ancient Egypt: astrology
Secret of Anubis - Ancient Astronomy
This Blog "Secrets of Ancient Egypt" was started 19. September 2008 under the name "Mysteries of Ancient Egypt"

Behold, the Secrets of Ancient Egypt, the land that the universe created when the cosmos made the Nile. As the Queen of the constellations raised herself above the two horizons and declared her name as Sirius, so did the jubilation of life occur, meanwhile her husband the Egyptian constellation of Orion stands guard by her.

The articles that you find here, investigates all the mysteries that lies hidden in the ancient desert sand, specifically their spiritual nature which began among the stars.

While I worked in Egypt I quickly saw something more than the guides would talk about.
Like I would say to my guests before entering a temple, "I can give you the regular guide story, which last 40 min, and then you can walk around by yourself? Or..."

"I can give you everything I've got, meaning I will tell you the details, and anything you point to, I will explain. I will use up all of your time, and still have a lot to say. the choice is yours".
- Guess which one they picked, always :)

You could say that this blog is based on that concept, of giving you everything I've got, on what ever topic from this ancient land.

Mysterious objects, that either moves or sings, are studied in more detail. I can guarantee you a journey which you haven't seen before, from below the ground to up among the stars.

The Pyramid builders that left empty sarcophagus and a knowledge which no one have been able to imitate since...
A peculiar and mysterious thing, is also the fact that what we have from the Pyramid Builders are in stone not papyrus manuscripts. Their spiritual belief was written into the stones.

The mysteries of Edgar Cayce are also looked into, as well as the case of the Emerald tablets.

Furthermore you have a unique opportunity to read more about individual stars and constellations of ancient Egypt, known under the name of the Decans.

This blog goes extensively into different subjects from this holy land, and takes you on a real as well as truthful journey into the magical land of the great ancient Egyptians.

The Emerald tablets articles can be found under the label Hermes Trismegitus, there are more than one article about each subject, and it is for that reason that they are arranged into label categories.

Full Moon in ancient Egypt


Full Moon in ancient Egypt

Behold the Eye of the Night, as one eye is closed another opens its heavenly light and gives light among the darkness.

She is the companion of his majesty the Sun, they are the true Romeo and Juliet, never being able to reach each other, the divine power has ruled it so. Like a ghostly figure she is forever doomed to be an earthly slave, the second place in our galaxy.
Full Moon in ancient Egypt by Karima
The picture above is said to be, The Udjat or Full Moon containing its 14 days.
In the Book 'From Fetish to God in ancient Egypt' by E.A. Wallis Budge.
Besides a sketch of the above picture, this was written:

"I am washed. I am washed. I am washed. I am washed. My purity(?) is the purity of the great BENU which is in Hensu. For I am that Nose of the Lord of the Winds (Thoth), who maketh all mankind to live, on the day of the filling of the UDJAT (Full Moon) in Annu in the second month of the season of PERT, the last day [In the presence of the Lord of this land]. I have seen the fullness of the UDJAT (Full Moon) in Annu. Evil shall not happen to me in this land, in the Hall of MATTI, because I know the Names of these gods who are therein [who are the followers of the Great God]. "

I located This engraving upon a temple ceiling, I almost broke my back trying to hold the camera still in a bent backwards position. I could not see all the details in the picture, only when I got home and saw the picture in full. When I got to look at the picture at home I noticed something. 

In the Eye-ball itself, it looks as if there is a small body of some sort, most probably a young boy with his finger in his mouth (A very famous scene of ancient days). I have made some close ups of the eye itself, as you can see. Actually it also looks as if a goat like creature is coming riding into the picture, from the below corner where the Anubis creatures stand.

On the engraving is a big ball with an Eye and 14 small bodies in it, are placed on a boat. In the boat some of the Gods and Goddess are seen, the preserved side is where you see the rudders, it Looks like either Ra or Ra-Herakhty (in his Falcon headed form) standing in front of the ball (probably representing the Full Moon itself).

You should see the above engraving like this:
The Moon traveling over the dark blue celestial water abyss, protected by Gods and Goddess, who will fight the battle to return yet another day. Like keeping time a float.

The Decans

Let’s just skip into the very depth of ancient Egyptian religion, we grab into the Lords abyss, where we reach out and grab 

‘The Decans’. - Heard of them? 

They are stars but much more than that, their complexity is more entangled than their great monuments. 

Each night you can find them, at each side of everyone, upon this earth. They are only revealed at the most holy of places, at our material death. They are guarded by many demons and other gods, that are all called ‘The Doorkeepers.’ 

Only in the Valley of the Kings, will you see them in their right light, only there in the deep desert sand, will the stars be revealed on to you. 

 The ancient Egyptians believed in the Sun, or rather the movement of the Sun and other planets such as our famous Sirius. But they recognized more planets than that. 

Actually they recognized the exact same essential planets which we so often use in our modern astrology readings. 

Some Basic about ancient Egyptians: 

They also divided the day-hours much like we still do - 24 hours a day. RA - The Sun is the Day, and there are 12 light hours of the day. SETH - The Moon is the night, and there are 12 night/dark hours of the day.
The Decans are the stars that are bound by the five(5) gods birthdays, and together they create the 365 days a year.

One week is made up by 10 days, making a year; 36 x 10 = 360 days; Then the ancient celebrated 5 Gods birthdays, by giving them a day each; which makes; 36 decans x 10 days + 5 days = 365 days a year.

The Decans could be seen as 36 weekly stars that the ancient would take notice of. The famous Sirius is the ‘Queen of the Decans’ and she marked the beginning of a new year. The planets were called ‘The stars that know no rest’ and referred to the five planets; 

Mercury – the star of Seth/or a form of Seth. 
Venus – star of the morning/ the one who crosses’ or ‘God of the morning’. 
Mars – Horus the red/ Horus of the horizon. 
Jupiter – Traveling star/ Horus who limits the two lands/ Horus star of the South. 
Saturn – Horus the bull/ Bull of the heavens. This post can also be found at ‘The history of Astrology’, because it belongs to both.
