MYTHOLOGY & ORIGINS
Sumerian Mythology; Ophiuchus co-relates to no less than:
of man's search for Immortality & eternal youth.
Ophiuchus was associated with "ENKI" ... who was known as a scientist, geneticist, a healer
(later ascribed to Asclepius by the Greeks) and .... fascinated
with snakes. One of the original Annunaki (reference: Zecharia Sitchen)
He was also "a friend to mankind". Ophiuchus, the Constellation, carries a snake and was known as "The Snake Charmer" (homage to "Kill Bill"). His foot rests upon the head of Scorpio.
NOTE: In ancient times, warrior Scorpion-Men guards (called girtablilu) ....
.... killed anyone who sought out this abode of the gods.
Astronomically, the girtablilu were the "gatekeepers" of the Horizon. They welcomed the sun's rising in the morning and shepherded the sun's return below the horizon at evening. They were the keepers of "Daily Life", but; they also prevented access to the realms of "darkness"... or in this case, "the realm of secrets".
Could this might imply that the Vernal Equinox during
the Age of Scorpio (17,220 BC - 15,100 BC)
may have included an Age of Ophiuchus?
NOTE: This time frame would also have coincided with the Beginning of one of the Hindhu "Ages of Twilight" (17,215 BC) prior to the Dawn of Dvapara Yuga in 15,703 BC. The Pole Star would have been near Vega.
So: an "Ophiucan" would have had to "master & control" the scorpion ( one's personal physical desires, emotional desires, & intellectual desires for power) before "handling the snakes" (the secrets of youth & immortality).
A LITTLE ANCIENT ARCHAEO-ASTRONOMY?
Tiamat was (among
other associations) the name for an earlier & larger planet Earth
.... BEFORE (according to the Sumerians and Zecharia Sitchen's
translations) Marduk/Nibiru's satellites turned 1/2 of Tiamat into the
asteroid belt, Miranda, Titania, Oberon, Uranus' rings and splattered
some of it onto Nereid (Neptune's Moon).
"half" became our Earth (now called KI) bringing with her our now dead
"Moon" (Kingu) which once harbored life.
Pluto which was once
said to be Saturn's moon became the newest outer planet and Tiamat's
"surviving half" settled into orbit between Venus & Mars. Might
this shed some interesting light on why Saturn-Pluto aspects can be so
characterized to as a "dragon or sky serpent" and a "bringer of
death". Ophiuchus' hand that holds the serpen's head is called the
"hand of death". Ophiuchus himself is sometimes referred to as: "The
Man of Death".
Nibiru is said to have brought death to
Tiamat. Who then, might this Ophiuchus be .... that wrestled with and
mastered the Serpent of Death? Scorpio rules Death in the current
Zodiac. But at one time .... Ophiuchus had to deal with her.
... 1/2 of which now composes our Earth; was a Water Planet known for
"dragons, serpents, scorpion-men and mer-people".
