141. Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion, by Ev Cochrane [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the way for a new breed of researcher. Although his first book presented a fascinating case for planetary catastrophism in general, he concentrated mainly on what he saw as evidence that Venus had been the major player in the celestial drama, followed closely by Mars. Yet in mainly unpublished works he indicated that before Venus the main player had been Saturn, a planetary scenario he never followed up. A small body of researchers, starting notably with David Talbott's seminal work, have taken over where Velikovsky left off and developed a complex imagery of the planetary relationships, as interpreted by world wide myths, which were seen by early man. Whether or not the reader is convinced by the ...

143. The Opening Of The Mouth Ritual - Part I [Journals] [Aeon]
... will live for ever; if Osiris dieth, then will the deceased perish."  That Osiris, along with other Egyptian "sun" gods variously called Ra (or Re), Atum (or Atum-Ra or, vari-ously, Atem/Temu-Ra/ Tem/Temu) together with Ptah, was an avatar of the planet Saturn has been previously established and is accepted for the purpose of this article (though an alternate identification will be discussed in Part II of this paper).  The story of Osiris is best known from Greek sources, for the "fullest account of the Osiris myth extant in Egyptian" is the Eighteenth Dynasty Stela of Amenmose ...
144. Humbaba [Journals] [Kronos]
... not revolution (as in an orbit). Thus the symbolic meaning of the caduceus' serpents as Mercury's "racing feats" around the Sun cannot be accepted. The caduceus, with its whirling motion, evolved from an earlier symbol which depicted the Axis Mundi (26) As I have already indicated elsewhere, the Axis Mundi belonged to Saturn.(27) Humbaba's comparison with Tlaloc is valid. Tlaloc, however, was, among other things, the Aztec god of rain. So was Kronos and so was Ea. These last two have long been identified as manifestations of the planet Saturn, an identification that de Santillana and von Dechend themselves uphold.(28) ...
145. Discussion Questions From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... so its rotation will be equal to the revolution period, and this is true of most natural satellites of the planets. This gravitational influence can be clearly observed in the highly circular orbits of nearly all the natural satellites of the planets. However, there is an electro-gravitic interaction that can be clearly observed in the satellite systems of Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. In AEON I:1 , page 13, I said that, "Since the dissipation rate of electromagnetism is greater than gravity over distance from the Sun, this difference in the ratio between the forces should cause charged planets situated farther from the Sun to have increasingly eccentric orbits." This should also be the case ...
146. Thoth Vol III, No. 17: Dec 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... together like a jigsaw puzzle was a clue to a new theory and recognition of a new phenomenon. In the sense of method, particular theories are just tools, something with which to build a technology, to be replaced when experience and curiosity move on. All theories are "working hypotheses", not Ultimate Truths. I'll use the Saturn Theory for an example. In the standards of CAT, it's ridiculous. Four or five planets stacked one above the other on a common axis is, if not impossible, so far from the familiar and the expected that it's laughable. Gravitational theory has come up with the orbit of SOHO, revolving around an empty spot in space ...
147. Thanatos and Anastasis [Journals] [Aeon]
... because [this] day with the ancients was sacred to the goddess of the planet Venus, to Istar [Ishtar], or, as the Sabians of Harran in Mesopotamia call the lady of this day, to Beltis." (1 ) Jesus thus died on the day of Venus, descended into the Underworld on the day of Saturn (Saturday), and was resurrected on the day of Sol (Sunday). (2 ) In these events, and others, we may discern certain pagan parallels. The day of the Crucifixion was fraught with catastrophic signs and occurrences. First, a strange darkness descended upon all the land from the sixth hour to the ninth ...
148. The Organization of the Solar System, Part II: A Galactic Capture Hypothesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... location, but rather by spin rate (from the fastest pair to the slowest pair). The Moon and the Sun are added for comparison. The planet masses and angular momentums (relative to Earth) are added to give some idea as to where resides most of the spin momentum in our solar system (Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn). On the one hand, the difficulties of the nebular hypothesizers escalate steeply with the realization that six planets have spin rates in pairs. On the other hand, the difficulties of the fiat creationist escalate as one realizes that the planets acquired spin in pairs even as Genesis teaches our planet acquired animals in pairs. On the basis ...
149. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home | Issue Contents Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation Ken Moss Introduction A common objection to the acceptance of the Saturnian configuration is the mistaken belief that the New World, the Americas, do not have any (or very few) Saturn myths that corroborate those of the Old World. Similarly the Old World ones themselves are often dismissed out of hand with the somehow magical and fatal word "diffusion." [1 ] Maya Cosmos, a recent book on Mesoamerican cosmology, [2 ] indirectly speaks to this supposed lack of Saturnian material and one would be hard pressed to argue diffusion. It provides an excellent source ...
150. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:5 (Sep 1988) Home | Issue Contents Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One)David Talbott The necessary emphasis on the planet Saturn in much of the prior discussion of the polar configuration has perhaps created a false impression that must now be corrected. Because the myths present Saturn as the "first father"- the central sun and creator who originally stood "alone" in the sky- that planet is the logical focus of any attempt to present the configuration. At the same time this can be misleading, by suggesting that the other planetary gods have only minor roles, which is not the case at all. With the growing speculation ...
