The Black Sun

Posted in: 14. The Black Sun by Moon Elf on August 08, 2009

In esoteric Runelore the figure makes 3 swastikas which represent Arising, Being, & Passing Away to a new Arising.  Such as the solar eclipse represents the death of Osiris and the rise of Horus.

Found on the Norse Pagan band Non’s Website –

“There is a black sun which is not visible to the human eye.
It is our beacon and its fire burns within us”
– Akkadian temple inscription

The Black Sun however seems to sometimes (mostly) but not always be associated with the Dark Left-Hand path of Satanic and similar cults as the “negative” version of The Star or The Sun of popular esoteric philosophy.

Ancient eclipses had very powerful effects on the history of the human race. It was traditional seen as a bad omen. The word “eclipse” is derived from the Greek, “ekleipsis”, which means “omission” or “abandonment”. In Chinese it is “shih”, which means, “to eat up”.  (again refer to section on Evil regarding the absence of God).

In alchemy, the black sun, or “sol niger,” represents the dark, destructive aspects of the sun.

From a description of the Icon of the Annunciation:  The black sun in the upper part of the scene represents the essence of God, indefinable and unknowable; the rays represent His energies (in the form of the Holy Trinity) which are manifestations of His essence and can therefore be known.

This icon represents the Annunciation, that is, the moment when “The angel came in unto (Mary), and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.” (KJV, Luke 1: 28-31).

In Western Kabbalistic Tradition, Persephone and Hades are first encountered on the path between Malkuth and Yesod with Hecate as guardian of their Mystery. Pluto/Hades in his dark glory (the Black Sun or shadow-self) and Persephone as Queen of the Underworld, ruling death and rebirth (the bright-self) are to be encountered on the path between Yesod and Tippareth. These two paths lead to the “hidden riches” within the individual. The paths form part of an ongoing series of confrontations which are resolved in the process of attaining internal balance. This balance is to be found in the dance of energy which is poised at the knife edge between the forces of darkness and light, a manifestation of the power of Pluto.

Winged Solar Disc

Posted in: Winged Solar Disc by Moon Elf on

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

Sirius [from Greek seirios scorching] In classical myth, the dog of Orion, who followed his master when he was made a constellation; it is called the Dog-star; by the Egyptians, Sothis. The dog at times symbolizes Mercury or Budha, who was called Cynocephalus, the dog-headed. It is a symbol of watchfulness and guarding. The heliacal rising of Sirius coincides in the northern hemisphere with the sultry heat of late summer, and was regarded in antiquity as a cause of that heat, or as contributing a baleful quality to it.

“The star worshipped in Egypt and reverenced by the Occultists; by the former because its heliacal rising with the Sun was a sign of the beneficent inundation of the Nile, and by the latter because it is mysteriously associated with Thoth-Hermes, god of wisdom, and Mercury, in another form. Thus Sothis-Sirius had, and still has, a mystic and direct influence over the whole living heaven, and is connected with almost every god and goddess. It was ‘Isis in the heaven’ and called Isis-Sothis, for Isis was ‘in the constellation of the dog,’ as is declared on her monuments. ‘The soul of Osiris was believed to reside in a personage who walks with great steps in front of sothis, sceptre in hand and a whip upon his shoulder.’ Sirius is also Anubis, and is directly connected with the ring “Pass me not’; it is, moreover, identical with Mithra, the Persian Mystery god, and with Horus and even Hathor, called sometimes the goddess Sothis. Being connected with the Pyramid, Sirius was, therefore, connected with the initiations which took place in it. A temple to Sirius-Sothis once existed within the great temple of Denderah. To sum up, all religions are not, as Dufeu, the French Egyptologist, sought to prove, derived from Sirius, the god-star, but Sirius-Sothis is certainly found in connection with every religion of antiquity” (TG 300).
