Horus Behdety – The Winged Disk
(Horus Gods – Part 3 of 3)

The timing of the conflict paralleling Mercury’s breakaway.

Its even possible to even narrow down the time of year Behdety assisted Re in his eternal struggle against evil.

This winged disk—which was sometimes identified with the Morning and Evening Star (Fairman pp. 35-36 [12,4—12, 6])—represents the assistance Horus offers to Re in combating his enemies during the Egyptian seasons of akhet and the first half of peret, roughly from our late summer to the winter solstice (Fairman pp. 32 [9, 8], 33 [10, 2], 34 [10, 14]).


The timing of the above is very interesting as I believe it is the legacy of the time when Mars locked into orbit above the Trans-Himalayas Tree Of Lifeand belched out Mercury. This ‘final separation’ allowed earth to wobble back on its axis, thus creating the seasons. Following this genesis, Mercury (and Mars) in a periodic resonant orbit with earth would return to its place of origin for many subsequent years thereafter (prior to being dragged off towards the sun with Venus). Through ancient eyes, and taking the sacred text at face value, this was around the time of the winter solstice, just prior to the sun returning along the horizon. Its Christmas! As a gigantic tree of volatiles or ‘Tree of Life’ (Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Tower of Babel, all precursors to the Christmas tree,) was seen to rise skywards above the Trans Himalayas, upon each close approach.

Christmas Tree Ashur

A nice Christmas tree with a ‘star’ above it, now where have I seen that before?

Note the reference to Behdety as ‘sometimes identified with the Morning and Evening Star.’ Mercury today is a morning and evening star e.g. ‘evening star,’ visible after sunset, ‘Morning star,’ visible before sunrise. If Mercury is being referred to here, then it is a late reference – a time when the sun’s true golden power began to shine through and Mercury became lost in the suns glare during the day, becoming visible only around the twilight hours.

The word ‘sometimes,’ because we are, after all dealing with chaos.

Iron Age fallout?

Horus Behdety is assisted by numerous followers, called mesenu, or ‘harpooners,’ armed with iron spears and chains.


And from that day figures of Horus Behdety in metal have existed.


And Horus Behdety did battle with the Enemy for a period of time, and he hurled his iron lance at him, and he threw him down on the ground in this region, which is called Pa-Rerehtu unto this day.” (ibid)

It is with no surprise we find an association between Horus Behdety and iron. As Mercury exited Mars, a natural sequence of events saw countless tons of iron debris produced. Large quantities of which fell to earth as iron meteorites – a direct association was made. I would again like to point out that at the same time Mercury exited the Valles Marineris incalculable quantities of vaporized iron rich rock was produced from around Mars’ core. This condensed and fell to earth as iron rich sand. The evidence of which is in plain sight for all to see – it forms the majority of the worlds iron rich deserts (and beaches, see Sahara Desert). Even as we speak, the earth today is constantly being bombarded by tons of iron micrometeorites and sand. Believed to have existed from the birth of the Solar System – this is totally incorrect. Such debris is the remnants of the genesis of Mercury only a few thousand years ago!

The bombardment of iron meteorites has led catastrophist writer Professor Alfred de Grazia to propose the Iron Age owes it origins to the Mercury from Mars event. See Grazia’s The Iron Age of Mars.

Horus Behdety manifest through the god kings.

As with all the afore mentioned Horus,’ Horus Behdety was also directly associated with kingship – many kings were believed to be the ‘Living Horus’ Behdety during their reign and became one with the god after death.

The same text that tells us Behdety assisted Re around the time of the winter solstice also includes formula for the king to identify himself with Horus Behdety.

“On the day on which trouble and strife occur,” the king reciting four times, “I am the God’s avenger who came forth from Behdet, and Horus of Behdet is my name,”

(Fairman 36 [12, 8 – 12, 11])


Behdety became a deity especially protective of the king, and on either side of the sun disc (Not the sun!) a uraeus was added, the cobra deity Uto of Buto in Lower Egypt being in charge of the protection of the pharaoh, the mortal substitute of the divine ruler of Egypt, Horus.


Strong support for the Pharaohs as Behdety incarnate comes to us via one of the most well renowned and respected Egyptologists Sir Alan Gardiner, who argued that the disk represented the ‘actual person’ of the of the king, syncretised with the sun-god (Dictionary of Ancient Egypt. Shaw & Nicholson, 2002, p305). He took his lead from images such as the one below which clearly shows the actual disk of Horus Behdety so named (via the kings cartouche directly below the disk) ‘Nub-Maat-Re,’ (“Lord of Truth like Re”). This being the throne name of Amenhotep III (Mars). Of course the “syncretised with the sun-god” bit is a perfect example of Egyptologists lack of understanding of Horus gods and thus lumping them all together under the heading of ‘solar gods.’ Oh dear.

Winged Disk Amenotep

Amenhotep (“The Dazzling Disk of all Lands”) as an aspect of Mars just prior to giving birth to Mercury (Aten).

Amenhotep is represented three times, primarily as Horus Behdety at the top of the stele and in human form either side of the carved stone. He is offering to Amun, the god of aurora. More on this image plus a bit more here.

Seti (Mercury)

“[Winged sun disc]: Behdety, the great god, the one of the many-coloured plumage, lord of the Heavens: the perfect god, lord of the two lands Men-Maat-Re (Seti), who is given life like Re, every protection and all life be behind him.” (The Beit Shean stela of Seti, ref.)

Ramesses Winged DiskRamesses/Mars depicted either side of the stela offering to the god Amun (aurora). Surmounting the round toped stone is Ramesses/Mars as Horus Behdety incarnate. The name of Ramesses (enclosed in the a cartouche) is clearly written just below the disk. The name reads “Strong by the Truth of Re, Chosen of Re.” A very fitting title as Ramesses/Mars appeared primarily as a red disk, just like the Sun (see Names and Titles).

Further support for a winged Ramesses/Mars comes to us via an inscription at the great temple at Abu Simbel which reads “He Who Spreads Out His Wings Over His Army” (Breasted, Records, Vol III p213).
