Winged Solar Disc

Posted in: Winged Solar Disc by Moon Elf on August 08, 2009

This was the symbol of Horus of Bahdet.  Kabbalistically Kether or even better Tephireth which made me think of this symbol as the same as the Sun symbol the circle with the dot in the middle “given to me in a meditation by Kali/Brahmani”.  In Dion Fortune’s book The Winged Bull when describing the meaning of the symbols of the creature she lists the Eagle’s wings as spiritual aspirations and further as –the flight to the sun.  This rang with me in regards to the winged solar disc as I thought of it also as spiritual aspirations.   Dion makes further comments on her creature as “natural instincts soaring on …spiritual aspiration, with consciousness poised between them.”  I think that with or without the “natural instincts” the winged solar disc is as she says and is the circle with the dot in the center as The Sun – The Christ Center – the God Consciousness that resides within all of us and the wings are our spiritual aspirations toward reaching the full awareness of god within us which is also the god outside of us.

In Thelema Hadit is the  center and Nuit is the circumference.  Research this further in regards to the Alchemical Sun symbol — circle with the dot in the center.  The center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere found (nothing).

CIRCLE with a DOT (BINDU) in the center: In the complex symbolic system of Hinduism and Buddhism, the  bindu (dot) represents the male force. Together, the circle and the bindu symbolize the merging of male and female forces.

This came from an individual in a Thelemic mailing list:

If you picture yourself standing on the tree facing Tiphereth on the 32nd path of Tau and look up you have yesod with tiphereth behind it. a representation of the solar eclipse.

The ubiquitous Eye of Horus symbol of ancient Egyptian religion can be quite readily shown to have been inspired by the “Eye of God” aka “Eye in the Sky” that is manifested in the heavens above our planet Earth during most if not all total eclipses of the sun. Horus, the famous solar falcon god of ancient Egypt, was quite evidently inspired by the “winged disk” or the “Bird of the Sun” that is readily perceivable within the sun’s corona during those total eclipses of the sun in which the streamers of the sun’s corona are concentrated into the sun’s equatorial regions and thus appear very much like a bird’s wings spreading out on either side of the so-called “black sun” that is formed by the dark circle of the occulting disk of the moon. The ancient Egyptian myth of the cosmic battle between the solar falcon god Horus and the sun eating serpent god Set was quite evidently inspired by total solar eclipses as the British Museum’s reputed Egyptologist EA Wallis Budge noted well over a century ago. In fact, the solar falcon god Horus is very clearly spoken of as assuming the form of a gigantic “winged disk” in some versions of this ancient Egyptian solar eclipse myth.

The Eye of Horus symbol does not usually show the wings of the solar falcon god however the Egyptians also had a closely related winged version of their total solar eclipse inspired udjat eye symbol. I expect that the wingless Eye of Horus symbol is essentially a winged udjat eye symbol from which the wings of the coronal SunBird have been deliberately removed in order to emphasize the religious attribute of this sky god’s divine omniscience that is allegorized by the striking similarity in appearance of the totally eclipsed sun to an “Eye of God”. The “solar eye” nature of the Eye of Horus symbol is clearly revealed by the fact that some versions of this ancient Egyptian religious symbol clearly depict the pupil and iris of the “Eye of Horus” as red sun disk with a central black dot.

Liber Cordis Cincti Serpente, V:21.

But thou shalt heed none of this. Thou shalt be ever the heart, and I the serpent will coil close about thee. My coil shall never relax throughout the fons. Neither change nor sorrow nor unsubstantiality shall have thee; for thou art passed beyond all these.

NOTE:  There are a few interesting things here in regards to not only the solar eclipse and the winged Eye of Horus but also remember the Gold of Alchemy and the previous mentioned circle with the dot in the center in regards to the Eye of Horus as the red sun disk with a central black dot and the heart with the serpent coiled around it.  The serpent being a goddess symbol and being Nuit in Thelema who is nowhere to be seen.  You can also replace Hadit and Nuit with Osiris and Isis as their symbols are also Osiris as the dot and Isis as the red solar disc.  This can also be associated with the Alchemical symbol for The Sun and is also representative of Ra, The Eye of God & The Evil Eye (see notes on Evil – this is NOT a contradiction) — Horus is the same as the Christ Center.


The Winged Globe of Egypt

From Maurice’s Indian Antiquities

This symbol, which appears over the pylons or gates of many Egyptian palaces and temples, is emblematic of the three persons of the Egyptian Trinity. The wings, the serpents, and the solar orb are the insignia of Ammon, Ra, and Osiris. MPH

II,19: Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us. They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

II,20: Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of us.

II,21: We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.

II,22: I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.

II,23: I am alone: there is no God where I am.

II,24: Behold! these be grave mysteries; for there are also of my friends who be hermits. Now think not to find them in the forest or on the mountain; but in beds of purple, caressed by magnificent beasts of women with large limbs, and fire and light in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye find them. Ye shall see them at rule, at victorious armies, at all the joy; and there shall be in them a joy a million times greater than this. Beware lest any force another, King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath.

II,25: Ye are against the people, O my chosen!

II,26: I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring: in my coiling there is joy. If I lift up my head, I and my Nuit are one. If I droop down mine head, and shoot forth venom, then is rapture of the earth, and I and the earth are one.

II,27: There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these runes shall make a great miss. He shall fall down into the pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason.

II,28: Now a curse upon Because and his kin!

II,29: May Because be accursèd for ever!

II,30: If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does nought.

II,31: If Power asks why, then is Power weakness.

II,32: Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise.

II,33: Enough of Because! Be he damned for a dog!

II,34: But ye, o my people, rise up & awake!


NOTE: To me this seems to be Crowley’s answer to the Sirius Mystery – that it is a distraction and there is no “Because” to the Why of spirituality and if you even think there is then you are damning yourself to die in misery and feel not.  I can honestly say that since chasing this ‘because’ of the Sirius Mystery it is the biggest and worst distraction from true ‘centered’ spirituality.  Thus, I return to previous focal points and meditations where Kali/Brahmani gave me The Sun symbol of the circle with the dot in the center to return to spiritual centeredness.  However, chasing the Sirius Mystery and exposure to the ancient myths lead me to one symbol of extreme curiosity to me – the winged solar disc.
