Horus eye

Rahu and Ketu (moon nodes) changed positioning in the sky on 22-23/10.

This will remain for a year and a half.

These nodes represent the desire that drives the world’s development.

This took place in a union between sun and moon, on the autumnal equinox in the part of the sky that in Vedic astrology is called Uttara Phaguni nakshatra.

Uttara Phaguni nakshatra symbolizes the marriage of Shiva and Shakti.

Marriage symbolizes union between opposites. And it’s the association between opposites that creates something new.

There are many signs of union between opposites in this event. The conjunction between sun and moon (Shiva is symbolized by moon, and Shakti by sun in Tantric philosophy), on the equinox when night and day are equally long (and thus equally strong), and in an area of the sky that symbolizes the union between Shiva and Shakti.

In addition, we have a very unusual close positioning at the winter solstice, between Jupiter and Saturn which are each other’s opposites of contraction and expansion.

History is rich in mythology about what happens when mighty opposites are united and something new arises.

Horus was an ancient Egyptian god of heaven. His eyes were the sun and the moon respectively.

Horus is connected to all-seeing and omniscient, which is probably also linked to his figure as a falcon or as a man with falcon’s head.

Horus is usually described as the son of the god Osiris and the goddess Isis. Osiris is connected to the moon, Isis to the star Sirius and the sun.

According to mythology, Osiris and his brother Set had been given land divided between their father in inheritance. Osiris got land that was fertile and Set land that was dry and unusable. The jealousy that this aroused in Set caused him to kill his brother.

When Isis discovered this, she collected all the body parts in which Set had divided Osiris’ body, and through this she was able to get a son with Osiris; Horus.

This story was a very important story in ancient Egyptian times. We can see several of the themes recur in later religions.

In Indian mythology, we can find the myth of Shiva and Parvati. Shiva is connected to the moon. Parvati as an incarnation of Shakti is connected to the sun.

When they are united in love games in a couple of world ages, they are disturbed and Shiva spills his seed that flows into the Ganges and becomes the son Kartikeya, who is not Parvati’s biological child.

That they are disturbed by the other gods has been explained as them being afraid of the power of the child who has them both as parents.  

Also their second child; Ganesha has only one of them as a biological parent. He is made of skin deposits and turmeric from Parvati’s skin.

Also in the ancient Egyptian myth it is possible to assume that the same fear of the union of such strong forces were at play. Here, too, the brother Set is doing his utmost to avoid this powerful union of opposites, personified by Isis and Osiris.

The symbol of the all-seeing eye comes from Horus. The vision that houses all the opposites in one unit.
