The Full Moon: Look at the Eye of the Night, as one eye is closed another one opens its heavenly light and gives light among the darkness.

She is the companion of his majesty the Sun, they are the true Romeo and Juliet, never having the ability to reach each other, the divine power has actually ruled it so. Like a macabre figure she is for life doomed to be an earthly servant, the second location in our galaxy.

Full Moon in Ancient Egypt

According to E.A. Wallis Budge’s publication “From Proclivity to God in ancient Egypt,” the picture displayed illustrates The Udjat or Full Moon signifying the entire 14-day lunar cycle. Along with an illustration of the previously mentioned picture, thge adhering to message was consisted of:

“I have been cleaned and cleansed, just like the fantastic BENU bird of Hensu. My pureness is a reflection of the divine, and I am honored to have it. As the Nose of the Lord of the Winds, Thoth, I am the resource of life for all humanity. On the day of the full moon in Annu, throughout the second month of the period of PERT, I have actually seen the volume of the UDJAT. I am protected from harm in this land, in the Hall of MATTI, for I possess expertise of the Names of the gods who reside there.”

I found This engraving upon a temple ceiling, I nearly damaged my back attempting to hold the video camera still in a curved backwards position. I might not see all the details aware, only when I came home and saw the picture in full. When I saw the picture in your home I noticed something.

Within the eye, there seems to be a tiny figure, likely a young kid with his finger in his mouth, reminiscent of a renowned old representation. I have actually taken some close-up shots of the eye, as you can observe. Remarkably, it also seems as though an animal appearing like a goat is getting in the scene, arising from the reduced corner where the Anubis creatures are positioned.

On the engraving which is a big sphere with an Eye and 14 little bodies in it, are positioned on a boat. In the watercraft a few of the Gods and Goddess are seen, the preserved side is where you see the tails, it Appears like either Ra or Ra-Herakhty (in his Falcon headed kind) standing before the round (possibly representing the Moon itself).

You ought to see the above inscription similar to this:
The Moon traveling over tje dark blue holy water void, secured by Gods and Siren, tath will deal with the fight to return yet another day. Like keeping time a float.

    Hi Karima

    It's a nice article, and an interesting picture you have found.
    I was looking closer at the picture, and a thought struck me that this child inside the eye is equal to the child being created in the mothers womb. And Khnemu might have a connection with this, as I think it is he who is present in the right lower cornor of the picture.
    I see the full moon here as the suns creating power, reflecting its rays in the mothers womb (the moon).
    I am not an egyptologist, but it is only what my intuition says.
    Btw its a great site you got 😉

    With greetings

    Dear Hermit,

    Nice to see you around these parts 🙂
    I am happy to hear that you liked the article. The idea about Khneum is valid, I am personally not sure if it is Khneum that is portrayed in the corner, but it could be. Your intuition is a good thing to follow, the place where the heart speaks.
    And thank you so much 🙂

    I believe this image represents the myth of the entry of Osiris into the Moon. Set cut up Osiris' body into fourteen parts, which were hot glowing bodies ejected in rapid succession that arced out and struck the near side of Moon, forming the lunar maria, of which there are fourteen. The material from the bodies remained in their craters and the dates from the lunar rocks are that of the parent planet, not the maria. They differ because each body came from deeper in the parent planet, so were at different temperatures and lost slightly different amounts of argon used for dating.
    The bodies in flight are represented by the zig-zag lines. The long version is at:

    Dear Anonymous

    I am in the middle of reading the article which you brought to my attention in your comment, and I must say I so fare agree with Mr. John Ackerman, but I just explain it differently and in a much shorter term. In my work I have explained how 'I saw it' the two lands, I just wrote it like this:
    "It would seem as thou the ancient priests wrote in two languages, even thou you only see one set of hieroglyphics. One sentence can actually mean a lot more, than what just meets the eye".
    Actually in my book about Anubis and Duamutef, I draw a lot of attention towards their hieroglyphic system, and show how one word can mean so much more. I would say, that I use visuals to show this. I would for instance say that Sirius is both Isis/Hathor (and even more goddess') but she is also Septit the pointed star. The common people heard it as Sirius and the priest heard Septit (or at least they knew what else was said by mentioning one word)
    But I do agree with his point of view a lot of the way. I remember when I back in the days, read the word 'substance' in an ancient Egyptian text. To fully understand the word substance and noticing a planet that is hidden and naming it hereafter, is astonishing, and reveals a much greater knowledge which our modern mind can't even comprehend, or we just neglect to see it, as is. This is exactly the reason that I am so fascinated by ancient texts, I feel they reveal so much more.
    In my astrology blog I also take notice of some things, which this article also does. In some ways this author and I seem like we are speaking about much of the same things, but from different angles. He is focusing more on astronomical events and comparing them to Earth, where I use images/relief's to illustrate their great knowledge about our universe. But we do have some differences in out ideas. I do not believe that the Sahara desert was created because of the scorching heat from proto-Venus, as he describes. I see the Sahara desert as being an ancient floor, and yes life has change there a lot, everything from flood like weather to tropical climate, which makes the different animals a given. but then again, in some areas we find ancient fossils of sea animals and no fossils of land animals, which would make me suspect that the last thing that was there, was water. Before the sphinx was restored (?) people had inspected the sculpture, and found and they showed this to the public, that the sphinx had erosions, now the debate is, if it is water or desert/sand/wind erosion. I will have to leave it there.

    Thank you for your comment,
    I hope you have such a lovely week,
