Retrograde Planets and the Underworld
By Amir Fatir
A planet’s retrograde movement is depicted in scripture as a God going down into the underworld. All planets except the sun and moon occasionally move backwards (retrograde) relative to the motion of the earth, i.e, they seem to move in reverse, but they don’t actually go backwards. The ancient scientists depicted the fact of Pluto’s retrogression for 6 months of the year as Pluto’s wife, Persephone, being above ground for ½ the year and in the underworld with Pluto for the other half. Astrologers know that Pluto goes direct for 6 months and backwards for 6 months. How did allegedly primitive ancients know this thousands of years before western astronomers even found out that Pluto existed?
When Mercury goes retrograde these are all manner of mail, computer travel and communication snafus. Although the moon doesn’t go retrograde, its nodes do. They called the Dragon’s Head (North Node) and Tail (South Node). They are also called Oya (Yah/Jah/Yahweh/ Jehovah), Nekhebet and Uatchet, Rahu and Ket, Ida and Pingala, Harut and Marut and in the Noah story, Shem and Japheth.
When Noah was metaphorically drunk and naked, two of his sons walked backwards to cover him up. This shows that the moon (Noah) influences drunken behavior in the masses. The sons are the lunar nodes and covering him conveys that the knowledge of kundalini, chakras, psychic powers and the “magic” derived from them became occult, hidden, covered up.
The sun also has a type of retrograde motion via the precession of the equinoxes. That is stylized as the God Ra traveling through the gates of the Tuat (underworld). The precessional motion is depicted as Ra while the direct motion is depicted as Heru (Horus). The Tuat is circular shaped (zodiacal circle) and the consciousness of that circle is symbolized as Asar while its power is Ra.
Ra is the same as Sumerian God Erra who’s called Nergal (Lord of the Fiery Rocketship) in the Bible. For some reason, the “scholars” have failed to recognize that Erra is the same as Ra just as Anu is the same as Nu. In one famous equation, Nergal goes into the underworld and seduces the Goddess Erishkegal, sister of Inanna.
Jacob means “circle”. He grabs his twin Esau in the womb and pulls him back. This is the precession (backwards) of the “red, hairy” sun at equinox and its motion through the circle of animals (Jacob).
In the 18th Quaranic Surah, Moses and Jesus are walking through Panama when “they forget their fish”. They reverse their steps and return to the spot where the fish went into an oceanic tunnel. That is yet another metaphor, specifically that of precession by the vernal (Moses) and autumnal (Joshua/Jesus) to the Age of Pisces. Pisces is ruled by the wisdom planets Jupiter and Neptune; hence Moses met the wise man at the place of the fish.
The year 50 of the longitudinal precession are scripturally encoded as the 50 oarsmen of Ra’s and Ausar’s beats, 50 argonauts of Jason, Dyenius’ 50 sons, 50 Annunaki, 50 names of Marduk, Kali’s necklace of 50 skulls, 50 Jubilee years and 50 sanskrit letters.
Since 50 = 1/72 degrees the 72 virgins, 72 deities of the temple at Ankar Wot and 72 Sebau who killed Osiris represent the same amount of equinoxial movement.
