Sundial – “a sundial is a device that tells the time of day when there is sunlight by the apparent position of the Sun in the sky. In the narrowest sense of the word, it consists of a flat plate and a gnomon, which casts a shadow onto the dial. As the Sun appears to move across the sky, the shadow aligns with different hour-lines, which are marked on the dial to indicate the time of day. The style is the time-telling edge of the gnomon, though a single point or nodus may be used. The gnomon casts a broad shadow; the shadow of the style shows the time. The gnomon may be a rod, wire, or elaborately decorated metal casting. The style must be parallel to the axis of the Earth’s rotation for the sundial to be accurate throughout the year. The style’s angle from horizontal is equal to the sundial’s geographical latitude. In a broader sense, a sundial is any device that uses the Sun’s altitude or azimuth to show the time”
The worship of the sun, moon, planets, and stars was the pattern for the Babylonians, Persians, Chaldeans, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Celts, Mayans, Aztecs and Indians.
SUN-DAY (day 1) – from Latin dies Solis, the Day-of-the-Sun. Since Babylon was established, pagan have worshipped the Sun, using some of these names: Baal (Lord), Bel, Shamash, Molok, Ahura-Mazda, Dagon, Sol, Marduk, Mithras, Krishna, Amon-Ra, Aton, Woden (Odis, Adonis), Zeus, Deus and the Druid/Teutonic “God”. The Pharaoh and the Kaisar ( Caesar) were worshipped as the sun’s offspring, and this pattern began with the first king, Nimrod.
The roman Consul/Emperor Constantine I gave the term Sun-Day, which referred to the day honoring Sol Invictus Mithras. This Mithras was the Persian term for Apollo. In 321 CE he decreed under the penalty of death that all artisans, merchants, and people of his Empire cease work on the Venerable Day of the Sun, to honor Mithras/Apollo.
MOON DAY (day 2) – the Old English term was “monan daeg“, as translated from Latin, which means mona, which is the moon, and from here we have Mona Lisa which means moon lily. The moon was identified with Artemis (Diana), and in some cults, the sun and the moon were the eyes of heaven. Artemis is depicted with the crescent moon beneath her feet as if riding in a boat – exactly as you will see Miryam (Mary) in Roman Catholic illustrations.
TUES-DAY (day 3) – Tyr’s Day as known as the “day of Tiu” was a Teutonic Druid-Celtic idol. Tyr or Tiu was the Norse deity of war, considered the son of Odin/Woden (Wednesday). The French call this day Mardi (Mar’s Day), after planet Mars, Roman’s deity of war. The population of the Angles and Saxons was kept under control by various Druid priest cults. Druids still worship the sun at Stonehenge every Summer Solstice.
WEDNES-DAY (day 4) – When we say it’s “Wednesday” (Woden, Odin), we are declaring it to be Woden’s Day. Considered highly skilled in magic (majik), this Celtic deity was, to the Teutonic pagan, the husband of Freya or Frigga (Friday). The Romans honored planet Mercury on this day, calling it Mercurii dies (Mercury’s Day). This mid-week evening was highly regarded as a night of majik. Druids met to hold hands in a circle, chant, enchant, cast spells, and do it while surrounding a burning cross, the symbol of Woden (Odin). Woden’s emblem was the Celtic Crux, across with the circle (the sun). No wonder we see so many pictures of crosses with the sun nimbus behind it, and sunsets in Christian art – not to mention the halos of yellow around heads of Jesus and the saints. This will be shown to be a world-wide pagan influence; Buddha, Krishna, Ahura-Mazda, and Jupiter are just a few found with haloes.
THURS-DAY (day 5) – the Celtic Thor’s day, was the deity of thunder and son of Woden (Wednesday) and Freya (Friday). The same as Taranus, Thor was associated with thunder. The Romans honored Jupiter on this day, which was originally IU-PITAR, meaning Jovis-father. Jove corresponds to Zeus. The altar of Zeus is shaped like a “T”, used at every Olympic game, is lit by a torch. Thor’s emblem was the hammer, secretly interpreted as the letter T, refering to Tammuz (Babylonian Duzu), the son of Nimrod and Semiramis.
FRI-DAY (day 6) – old English – Frigedaeg, this was Frey Day or Frigga Day, where Frigga was the wife of Woden (Wednesday). The fertility concept associated with this day is very ancient. The Greeks honored Aphrodite on this day, Romans venerated Venus (Astarte), and Egyptian’s day of Isis., depicted with the symbol of the fish on her head. The fish symbol pre-dated the Egyptians, coming from the Philistine cult of Dagon, portrayed as a sea nymph (Starbucks symbol). Dag is a Hebrew word for fish, it was chosen by pagans because female fish lays hundreds, sometimes thousands of eggs – a symbol of fertility.
SATUR-DAY (day 7) – was the Greco-Roman Day of Saturn. Saturn was Roman’s deity of agriculture, corresponding to the Greek’s deity Cronus. This day was dedicated to Saturnus, as was the big party at the end of the Roman year at the Solstice, Saturnalia. Satur day was also called Ster Day and is unmistakably linked to the other Greco-Roman mythology. The Satyr, a goat-legged half-man with horns pointed ears, was believed to be a drunken, lecherous demon with an abnormal sexual appetite. The 7th day and the festival of “Satyrnalia” were modeled perfectly after the satyr profile: mischievousness, drunkenness, and orgiastic revelry.
