Was Venus A Comet: An Ancient Celestial Event Witnessed World-Wide
Once upon a time long ago, the ancient planets might have been as visible as our yellow sun.
The yellow sun wasn’t the only celestial giant appearing in Earth’s ancient skies.
Planets might’ve been closer to Earth’s proximity during the ancient days.
Earlier cultures were not so complacent about the planets. They invoked these bodies with fear and reverence. In ancient Mesopotamia, astronomer-priests insisted that the planets determined the fate of the world.
In their prayers to the planets they summoned memories of heaven-shattering catastrophe. What was it about these celestial objects that inspired this cultural anxiety? And why did so many ancient accounts insist that the movements of the planets once changed?
Some planets were missing from the celestial orbit around the sun, like Venus, for example.
It’s highly possible the ancients viewed Venus as a passing comet or sun before taking its place as a planet.
There was a lot of chaos and destruction witnessed throughout the world during the earlier days of the solar system.
In archaic texts the planetary gods were a quarrelsome lot. They were giants in the sky, wielding weapons of thunder, fire, and stone. Their wars not only disturbed the heavens but threatened to destroy the earth.
Driven by reverence and fear, ancient cultures from Mesopotamia to China, from the Mediterranean to the Americas, honored the planets with pomp and zeal, seeking to placate these celestial powers through human sacrifice.
Venus was a migrating comet before she took the throne as an orbiting planet.
Immanuel Velikovsky was one of the first people to propose the theory that Venus might’ve been a comet that was worshipped as a sun.
In the book Worlds In Collision, Immanuel Velikovsky describes a time when Venus was ruling Earth’s skies in our ancient past.
The book proposed that around the 15th century BCE, a comet or comet-like object (now called the planet Venus), having originally been ejected from Jupiter, passed near Earth (an actual collision is not mentioned).
The object changed Earth’s orbit and axis, causing innumerable catastrophes which were mentioned in early mythologies and religions around the world. Fifty-two years later, it passed close by again, stopping the Earth’s rotation for a while and causing more catastrophe.
During this time, not only Venus was visible and so was Saturn, Mars, Jupiter.
Many other researchers, from historians and physicists, are continuously working on this theory to this day.
Was Venus A Comet: The Fifth Planet Tiamat The Red Dwarf
There’s the idea that a brown dwarf was part of our solar system, along with the sun in a binary star system.
Graham Hancock believes our solar system had a brown dwarf wandering throughout the solar system, which caused chaos and destruction.
This brown dwarf collided with Venus and left remnants of what’s left of it today.
In early civilizations the planet Venus was bestowed with such great attention that its appearance in the sky is somewhat exaggerated. Jupiter, for example, is almost as bright as Venus, yet it was less regarded in prehistoric times.
However, in the earthly firmament, Venus is the most luminous of the seven planets and the brightest object next to the Sun and Moon. This conspicuousness belongs to the upheaval of the solar system, which, we argue, got its beginning with the passage of the Red Sun.
It’s also really strange that Venus is the only planet that rotates in retrograde which makes no sense and contains no moons.
85% of solar systems are a binary star system, with some of them even being trinary and some.
The third celestial object in the reliefs, which the historians assign to Venus, is shown at the same size as the Moon and the Sun, but, at the same time, it exhibits strange features. Instead of the crescent moon or a wreath of rays, two concentric circles characterize its appearance.
If we concede the artist’s intention to reproduce a figure as faithfully as seen, we must at least conclude that in this earlier time Venus was far brighter in the sky than today.
Venus represents fertility, beauty, creation, destruction and known as different mythological names throughout many ancient cultures.
Sometimes we hear about Venus describe in red as the above quote says.
But the red could also be mistaken for Mars which there’s a lot of roman myths are based upon.
The ancient Aztecs referred to Venus as the giant smoking star probably seeing the tail of Venus.
Most myths are based on a smoking star which took form in some ancient archetype.
There are various names in Yucatec for Venus. These include Nohoch ich, “great eye;” Chac ek, “red star,” or “giant Star”, and Xux ek, “wasp star.” … The affix for red is almost invariably prefixed to the glyphs for Venus in Dresden (short for Codex Dresdensis).
The Morning Star is like a man; he is painted red all over; that is the color of life. He is clad in leggings and a robe is wrapped about him. On his head is a soft downy eagle’s feather, painted red. This feather represents the soft, light cloud that is high in the heavens, and the red is the touch of a ray of the coming sun.
In Babylonian time, she’s known as Ishtar and known as Aphrodite in Greek mythology.
A lot of these myths about gods are syncretic, portraying the same god under different names.
Venus also inherits and symbolizes Medusa when there’s a catastrophic state between the celestial alignment of the planetary bodies.
The ancient Mayans considered Venus a Male god that wielded a spear.
Nok Ek – Mayan mythology
Ishtar /Innana – Babylonian mythology
Persephone – Greek mythology
Aphrodite/Medusa – Greek mythology
Athena – Greek mythology
Taibai Jinxing – Chinese mythology
In Egyptian mythology, she’s associated with the goddesses, Hathor and Isis.
The curious thing is the headdress she wears resembles a comet, with its dual tail trailing behind.
For many years – over generations – a second, small sun stood in the sky. A whole generation saw the flare-up of Venus; many generations saw a fading red “lamp”.
Even if no one understood what was going on in the sky, the event was scary and informative enough to father the Venus cult. The event of a planet, which abruptly turned into a sun, remained engraved in the memory of man.
One of her temples is Dendera in Egypt, where they have amazing glyphs of what appear to be a comet coming from the nightly sky Nut.
In Egyptian mythology, Nut represented the cosmos which holds all the stars, planets within it.
Was Venus A Comet: The Celestial Alignment Of The Gods
According to Velikovsky, Mars and Saturn accompanied Venus in a celestial alignment, which was visible in the skies.
This celestial alignment caused catastrophic electrical discharges, which would form auroric light figures like the Northern lights.
How are there 100’s of the same motif drawn worldwide throughout the ancient world, when civilizations didn’t know of each other’s existence?
We contend that humans once saw planets suspended as huge spheres in the heavens. Immersed in the charged particles of a dense plasma, celestial bodies “spoke” electrically and plasma discharge produced heaven-spanning formations above the terrestrial witnesses.
In the imagination of the ancient myth-makers, the planets were alive: they were the gods, the ruling powers of the sky—awe inspiring, often capricious, and at times wildly destructive.
Is it a mere coincidence that all these ancient cultures drew the same motif with slight variations?
I believe the squatter man symbolizes one of these auroric archetypes witnessed throughout by ancient cultures recorded all over the world.
Regardless of which theories stand, they all point to the same sign.
Most myths were based on a celestial event of planetary bodies which was witnessed by ancient civilizations world-wide.
A three-dimensional idealized representation of the transparent “hour glass” discharge pattern, together with a white-on-black image of the same configuration. Were such a formation to have appeared in the ancient sky, a rock drawing of it would probably look like the image on the right, similar to the “squatter man of worldwide rock art.
Virtually all of the variations in the ancient drawings correspond to known evolutionary aspects of the basic plasma form.
