Unearthing Ancient Magic in The Runes – part 2 (Precession of the Equinoxes)
Updated: Feb 8
In my own research, I also understood that these numbers are part of the procession of the equinoxes:
What is the procession of the equinoxes?
“The precession of the equinoxes refers to the observable phenomena of the rotation of the heavens, a cycle which spans a period of (approximately) 25,920 years, over which time the constellations appear to slowly rotate around the earth, taking turns at rising behind the rising sun on the vernal equinox. (source ancient-wisdom.com)"
Precession of Earth's rotational axis takes approximately 26,000 years to make one complete revolution. Through each 26,000-year cycle, the direction in the sky to which the Earth's axis points goes around a big circle. In other words, precession changes the “North Star” as seen from Earth.
(source: The Mysteries of Mithras - David Ulansey)
Numbers relating to the precession are:
The Precession of the equinoxes = 25,920 yrs = (360° rotation)
If the sky is divided into 12 constellations:
(25,920 / 12 = 2,160)
(Note: 6 x 10 x 6 = 360 and 360 x 6 = 2,160)
A New sign appears on the horizon each 2,160 yrs (30°)
Note: (2 x 2,160 or 12 x 360 = 4,320 yrs)
Therefore to move 1° on the horizon = 72 yrs. (approx).
To move 1° on the horizon = 72 yrs. (approx).
12, 24, 54, 72, 108, 216, 432
We see the above numbers in most magical working around the world and it seems the procession of the equinoxes was something important to the ancient mindset:
10,800 bricks in the Indian Fire Altar
10,8000 stanzas in the Rigveda, the most ancient of the Vedic
Kabbalah: 72 Angels
Rosicrucians speak of cycles of 108 years
Chines Triads - an initiate pays 360 cash, for making clothes, 108 for the purse, 72 for instruction
The ten Christian patriachs ruled between the rise of the city of Kish and the Flood, a period of 432,000 years.
Ancient Chinese volumes written down in a great text:
Mythical Kings of Babylon ruled for: 432,000 years.
In Sumer, time between creation and great catastrophe was 2,160,000 years
Mayans in Latin America, their Mayan Long Count Calendar: had times such as the 1 katun = 7200 days, 1 Tun = 360 days, 2 Tuns = 720 days; 5 Baktuns = 720,000 days; 5 Katuns = 36,000 days; 6 Katuns = 43,200 days; 6 Tuns = 2160 days; 15 Katuns = 2,160,000 days.
The Rig Veda - There are 10,800 stanzas in the Rigveda, the most ancient of the Vedic texts. Each stanza is made of 40 syllables with the result that the entire composition contains 432,000 syllables - no more or less.
Pyramid of Kheops relations to 1: 43,200. Dimensions of the Earth and dimensions of the pyramid: height of the pyramid 481 feet x 43,200 = polar radius of the Earth = 3938.685 miles (underestimated by only by 11 miles with modern instruments).
Monument’s perimeter at the base: 3023.16 feet x 43,200 = true equatorial circumference of the Earth = 24,734.94 miles (the error was three quarters of a single percent when compared with modern instruments, 24,902 miles)
108 is frequently multiplied by 100 to give it 10,800 or divide it by
2 to give it 54, which again is multiplied 10 to express 540
(or 54,000 or 540,000)
The diameter of the Sun is 864,000 miles (2x432)
The diameter of the moon is 2160 miles (432/2)
Highly significant is 2160, number of years to transit for one zodiac to the
next also multiplied by 10 to give 216,000, 2,160,000 and by 2 to give 432,000
The above relates to old magical orders and ancient understanding of the cosmos which is embedded in the Uthark system.
I hope this gives sufficient clues to the depth and sophistication of the runes that we are studying and how it is a “current” that exist throughout the world.
