Warlord of the Galaxy
Horus is depicted as a falcon, or as a hawk-headed man. His name in Egyptian is Heru or Hoor, which means "the distant one."
The various Identities of Horus
Horus of Edfu fought a great battle against Set and an army of conspirators.
Ra-Hoor-Khuit (Ra-Harakhte - Horus of the two horizons - hoor-izons) was identified with Ra and the daily voyage of the sun from horizon to horizon.
Two deities, Ra and Horus, combine to become the modern Thelemic god of War and of Vengeance.
He is represented as a hawk-headed man wearing the solar disk as a crown.
Hoorisis (Horus, son of Isis) - Horus was the son of Isis and Osiris. He was conceived magically after the murder of Osiris by his brother Set and brought up by Isis on a floating island in the marshes.
The relation between the story of Jesus and the story of Horus is that Horus was the result of the original immaculate conception.
The child Horus was weak and in constant danger from the scheming of his wicked uncle, Set, who sent serpents and monsters to attack him. But his mother, Isis, was skilled in the magical arts and she warded off this evil by using spells against the creatures.
Harpocrates (Hoor-paar-kraat, the infant Horus) - As a child, he represents the new born sun and is often pictured being suckled by Isis. He is usually represented as a seated child, sucking his thumb, with his head shaved except for the sidelock of youth. Even as a child, he wore the royal crown and uraeus
Horus the Sun God - Since Horus was said to be the sky, he was also said to contain the sun and the moon. The sun was one of his eyes and the moon the other, and they traversed the sky when he, as a falcon, flew across it. Thus he became known as Horus of the Two Eyes.
The reason that the moon was not as bright as the sun was explained by a tale that explained how Set, the patron of Lower Egypt, and Horus, the patron of Upper Egypt, had battled for Egypt brutally, with neither side victorious, until eventually the gods sided with Horus.
But the right eye of Horus had been wounded by Set, thus the moon had become weak when compared to the sun.*
* Thoth came to the aid of Horus and healed his eye.
Other Names and Images of Horus
He is Harendotes (Horus the avenger of his father).
He is Har-pa-Neb-Taui (Horus Lord of the Two Lands).
He is pictured as a winged sun-disk or sometimes as a hawk-headed lion.
He is shown as a falcon-headed lion, as a sphinx, and as a ram-headed sphinx.
Horus is often portrayed in art as a naked boy, with a finger in his mouth, sitting on a lotus, both with and without his mother.
Horus the Conqueror of Set
In the XVIIIth dynasty (around 1550 BC), during the overthrow of the hated Hyksos (the foreign rulers of Egypt), Set became demonized by the populace, for he had been chosen by the Hyksos as their favorite god.
The ancient legend of the battle between Set and Horus was renewed as a tale representing the conquest over the Hyksos.
The story goes like this: Set (the brother of Osiris) was jealous of Osiris and trapped him in a box.
Then Set killed Osiris and cut his body into 14 pieces, spreading them throughout Egypt. Isis (the wife of Osiris) found out that her husband had been killed and she searched all over Aegypt looking for his body parts. She found all but one (his penis) and, using her magic, she put his body back together and buried him.
During the process of putting him back together she became pregnant with her son Horus.** She then gave birth to Horus who became the god of the sky and later avenged his fathers death by killing his uncle Set.***
** Certain esoteric legends indicate that Thoth found the penis of Osiris and used it to impregnate Isis.
*** Obviously, Set was not killed. He survived to become known as Shaitan, or Satan, who rules the underworld. A more realistic version of the tale relates how Horus defeated Set, but Set avoided death by crawling into a hole in the ground in the desert to the West of Egypt (the Sahara). Horus then disguised himself as a pole set near the hole so that he could watch for Set's return. The moral of the story is clear: "The price of liberty is eternal vigilance."
A Mystery Religion
Horus, as the son of Osiris, was only in existence after Osiris's death. It was therefore said that Horus was the resurrected form of Osiris.
This rather esoteric mythology lead to the tale becoming the basis of a mystery religion, the exact nature of which has been guarded by, and portrayed within, the secret societies of Arcania, and forms part of the basis of the legend of Jesus the Redeemer.
Horus is also found among the Sumerian Gods
Eye of God - Eye of Ra - Eye of Horus
The Eye of Horus / Ra / God refers to the ancient Mystery School Teachings of Creational Geometry encoded by Isis and Osiris and left behind with their priests in Egypt and thence transmitted throughout the ages to their heirs in our modern times.
These are the same souls who were the priests in Atlantis. They carry this genetically encoded information in their DNA - triggered now as we move toward the Zero Point in 2012.
There is much additional information that has been kept hidden in the ancient mystery school teachings since the beginning of this grand cycle.
