Astronomy in the Bible, The Watchers and Giants
Is there a connection between the star gazers of the Nephilim, the Bible and the Earthworks in the Ohio Valley? We may never have a definitive answer to the question, but given that a giant race once inhabited the Ohio Valley whose origins point to the Biblical Levant, we can not dismiss the fact that the the mound builder's astrology was nearly identical.
Though dismissed by the church, astrology has left an indelible imprint on the scriptures of the Bible. Isaiah 14:13 “I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north.” This is a references to the North Star from which all other stars revolve in the night sky. The origin of the word “El” is from the Sumerian word “Ool” that means “to turn.” It is the mighty power of God who turns the fabric of the heavens.
The Bible also teaches that God arranged the stars into recognizable groups that we call constellations. Genesis 1:14 “And God said, "Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years.” Sacred times? Should we all be celebrating these astrological events?
Early Hebrew mystics organized the constellations into Archangels who were also described as Watchers known as Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Auriel. In the Books of Enoch, the Watchers were sent to Earth to teach law and justice to humankind. The Watchers were also interpreted as the Fallen Angels which magicians call forth in ceremonial magic.
In the Book of Enoch, he is taught by angels the names of the of the constellations, "I beheld the celestial stars come forth. I numbered them as they proceeded out of the gate, and wrote them all down, as they came out one by one according to their number. I wrote down their names altogether, their times and their seasons, as the angel Uriel, who was with me, pointed them out to me. He showed them all to me and wrote down an account of them. He also wrote down for me their names, their regulations and their operations."(Enoch 32:2-3).
The Amorites, (who were the accounted giants in the Bible) from Babylon followed an astronomy cult where there were four “Royal Stars” which were also called the Watchers. Each one of these stars "ruled" over one of the four cardinal points. The star Aldebaran, marked the Vernal Equinox, held the position of Watcher of the East. Regulus, marking the Summer Solstice, was Watcher of the South. Antares, marking the Autumn Equinox, was Watcher of the West. Fomalhaut, marking the Winter Solstice, was Watcher of the North. The Watchers were venerated as gods who guarded the Heavens and Earth.
Theorizing that the giant race in the Ohio Valley have their origins with the Amorites or Nephilim from the Levant, can we draw astrological parallels with the alignments of the earthworks in the Ohio Valley? Were these alignments part of the ceremonial magic performed by the mound builders magicians?
