Horus

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Horus, asteroid 1,924 (the 1,924th asteroid to be discovered, on September 24, 1960), is approximately 8.2 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.6 years. Horus was named after an Egyptian sky-god who in later mythology became the son of Osiris. J. Lee Lehman associates Horus with “far-sightedness and avenging nature.” Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of this asteroid as “synthesis resolving thesis and antithesis (Osiris and Isis); farsightedness.”

Horus

 

in ancient Egyptian mythology, the god of the sun. He was considered to be the protector of the pharaoh’s power, the pharaoh being his earthly embodiment. Horus was originally represented in the form of a soaring bird, whose eyes were the sun and the moon, and, apparently, was god of the sky. Cults of several gods called Horus existed. These gods were revered in various places and had common features. Horus was most often depicted in the form of a falcon (or a man with a falcon’s head) or a winged sun disk. He was considered to be the son of Osiris and Isis and to have defeated his father’s murderer, the evil god Seth, in single combat.
