Horus Egyptian Statue

The Egyptians worshipped many sky gods (gods whom descended from the stars) but none more so than Horus. Horus takes the shape of a falcon and regularly is depicted as having the moon plus the sun replace his eyes. According to myth, in a fight to defeat Seth of Ombos, Horus’ moon eye was damaged and healed from the God Thoth, but from then onwards the moon appeared at night in broken pieces. The ‘place’ of Horus is definitely related with the Horizon, and this will be interesting, because the Sphinx is aligned east to west and precisely with the equinoctial rising and setting points for the sun. These are the points where the sun intersects the equator throughout the equinoxes.
