The winged disc is a common religious icon for many ancient civilizations. However, it is most commonly associated with Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures. The symbol has also been found in the records of ancient cultures residing in various regions of South America as well as Australia. While the symbol is associated with the sun, a closer inspection of ancient wall reliefs, Sumerian seals, and free masonic symbolism reveal a different interpretation.
In the earliest depictions of the winged disc found in Mesopotamia we find it surrounded by 3 other celestial objects. One is star like, with rays representing the sun. (circled in purple), another is a crescent or full moon (circled in green) surrounded by 7 stars representing the Pleiades star cluster also known as the 7 sisters (circled in green). The winged disc (circled in red) being the central and most important symbol, matches with no known celestial object, at least in our present sky.
Freemasonry has been studying ancient religions and esoteric traditions since at least the 1700’s when their first lodge was created. They have adopted many ancient symbols in their organization, and in their artwork, we can find the winged disc and same configuration of celestial objects.
In George Washington’s Masonic apron, the first degree masonic trace board and other illustrations we find the sun, the moon surrounded by 7 stars, and an all seeing eye which replaces the winged disc. In other depictions of the same artwork the all seeing eye is replaced by the more modern pyramid top with an eye inside. Many Masonic lodges and churches use the pyramid with the eye symbol alone, just like the winged disc symbol adorned the many sacred ancient sites.
The only thing that Freemasonry changed from the original configuration of celestial objects was the winged disc for an all seeing eye. In ancient Egypt the winged disc was represented without the other celestial bodies. Likewise the all seeing eye is presented alone like in the back of the US one dollar bill.
In the first degree masonic tracing board we find 3 pillars and a stairway leading up to the all seeing eye, like a stairway to heaven. In the book of Genesis Jacob has a dream in which he meets God who resides at the top of a ladder that reaches to heaven. After waking he raised a rock and set it up as a pillar to commemorate the event. In the ancient past the winged disk represented the home and source of power of the gods. The pillars in the tracing board may very well represent past interjections of a supreme being on planet earth.
While its hard to imagine a celestial object in the shape of an all seeing eye, a winged disc gives a better point of reference. What we know is that in the ancient past, we worshiped an object in the sky that was not our moon or sun. Today this object is still worshiped but in the different shape, that of a pyramid with an eye. This can be traced by studying the evolution in configuration of the winged disc depictions from ancient Mesopotamia till present. The Sumerians called this celestial body NIBIRU and recorded its behavior in stone tablets.
In the Babylonian creation myth the Enuma Elish we read, “Nibiru is [Marduk’s] star, which he made appear in the heavens . . . The stars of heaven, let him [Nibiru] set their course; let him shepherd all the gods like sheep.” For a celestial body to shepherd other planets like sheep its size or density must be very large. In the 1980’s astronomers were able to pinpoint this planet and named it Planet X using the IRAS infrared telescope. In the early 80’s articles posted in the Washington Times, New York Post, and the Encyclopedia Britannica scientists revealed that its size was bigger than that of Jupiter, large enough to overcome the magnetic and gravitational fields of every planet in our solar system. They reveled that Planet X was close enough to be part of our solar system but did not say the duration of its orbit. The winged disc or Planet X was not only a large heavenly object but the home of the Gods of antiquity.
While today’s Royal families trace their kinship to ancient rulers, the royal families of the ancient past traced their lineage to the stars. More specifically, to the one celestial body which has been revered all throughout history, the winged disc. In the masonic tracing board we see a ladder leading up to the all seeing eye which represents the winged disc. This ladder has a striking similarity to Jacobs ladder, at the top of which he met God our creator. The pillars in the tracing board may represent previous encounters with Nibiru and interactions with the Gods of antiquity.
