Venus, Islam and the Arch

This is in regard to the Venus-Sun inferior conjunction that happens on March 25th. It just so happens to fall on the same day the Arch of Triumph is set up in Arona (strong mountain), Italy. Now pay close attention to the Venus crescent symbolism he talks about. This is from the book “Moon-O-Theism” by Yoel Natan.

Arch of Triumph

“Venus altars in the shape of pillars and steles are sometimes thought to be betyls but really represent a doorway—a prayer portal. The simple doorway altars were sometimes embellished with inverted crescentand-orb symbols. In Carthage for instance, some pillars from the same era and area have doors and some have inverted-crescent-and-orb symbols where the lintel or arch would be located. 3706 In larger versions of Venus altars, arches took the place of the crescent symbols—as in Mosque Mihrabs or the arches at the Dome of the Rock…Pickthall however translates “arches”as “synagogues,”which points to a religious purpose of the arches, even though Muhammad probably had Mihrab arches in mind. Muhammad probably was not thinking of generic arches since he probably thought that if the Kaaba had no such arches, the Jerusalem temple did not either. It is well known that the Crusaders referred to the Dome of the Rock shrine as Solomon’s temple. The Muslim architects of the Dome of the Rock seem to have been inspired by the Koran’s mention of arches in connection to Solomon.”

“The use of the arch in moon-god temples apparently goes back to the Sin moongod worship at Ur and was used in ziggurats…This paragraph reflects Muhammad’s reinterpretation of Venus: What the prophet said ‘When I arrived into the Third Heaven, I there saw an angel, equal to whom in excellence and beauty I had seen none, placid and joyful, he was seated upon a throne; and a circle of angelic effulgence was diffused about him.’This was the heaven of Venus and it is not necessary to comment its beauty; it denotes gladness and festivity. 3722 The reason that Muhammad’s theological sex-change operation on Venus was acceptable to Muslims is that a male Venus was not without precedent in Arabia.”

Mihrab Arch

“Moshan Fani wrote in The Dabistan: In most of the ancient temples of Persia they had formed the symbol of Venus [the bulbous lamp] in the figure [arch] of a Mihrab, or arch, like the altar of the Mosques; consequently, the present [Muslim] Mihrab, or altar, is that identical symbol. 3726 What is this “symbol of Venus” in the “altar” of which Moshan Fani speaks? The most common iconic symbol for Venus was a star or orb next to a crescentmoon. The lunette of the recessed arched Mihrab served as the crescent-moon, especially when the lunette was lit up with an oil lamp hanging from the apex.”

“So the area between the pillars of the Mihrab was a throwback to the gates of Venus. That gates represented Venus explains the ubiquitous ancient prayer portals with doors found throughout the Mideast3756 and the famous Ishtar Gate at Babylon…Muslims nearly always use a Venus altar in order to pray. In a Mosque, Muslims face a Mihrab niche in the Kiblah wall that is aimed at the ultimate Venus altar for Muslims—the vulviform Black Stone and silver casing. Also, the prayer rugs that are used inside and outside Mosques usually have an embroidered or woven arch pattern that represents a Venus altar…When praying, Muslims face and bow toward a Venus altar either in the form of a Mosque Mihrab, the arch on the rug or a Sutra Asherah pole.”

“The worshipper stands and says the Fatihah. Fatihah means the “Opening”and refers to the first chapter (Sura) of the Koran—about seven lines of text. Muslims generally recite the Fatihah thirty-two times a day. 3800 The “Opening”seems suspiciously like a magical incantation like “Abracadabra”or “Open Sesame,”perhaps meant to open a prayer portal to Allah via the Venus Mihrab altar. 3801 That Islamic Mihrabs represented a portal to heaven is further strengthened by an early Islamic tradition…The pagans even referred to the Mihrab Venus altar as an “opening.” For instance, one of Baal’s old titles was Baal-Peor, meaning “Lord of the Opening.”

“Baal-Peor, acted like an antennae pointing to god Baal, which suggests that there was a Venus prayer portal altar in the Beth-Peor temple. This Venus prayer portal “opening” was what gave the deity associated with this place the name, Baal-Peor, meaning “the Lord of the Opening.” Since the ultimate target of prayer is the Black Stone at the Kaaba—a stone in a vulviform frame—“ the Opening” (Fatihah), must refer not only to the opening of a Venus gate or opening chapter of the Koran but ultimately to the opening of Venus’ vulva.”

“The Muhammadan doctors say that Islamism is connected with this planet [Venus], from which source proceeds the veneration paid by them to Friday, or the day of Venus [the Muslim day of prayer]. Moshan Fani was a later critic of Islam, but early critics such as John of Damascus (~ 675 to ~ 749 AD) probably knew that Mihrab niches were Venus altars. John of Damascus did write that the Black Stone was associated with Venus. 3995 The Spaniard Alvarus Paulus (flourished 854 AD) noted that Muhammad had obtained the power of Aphrodite (the Greek Venus).”

Venus

So Islam did in fact worship Venus from the symbolism of the black stone to the rugs to the Mihrab and so on. My question now is this. When Venus finished off its cycle of the Pentagram shape, was its dying off into the form of a crescent more significant than any other time of its cycle? And on March 25th, its final day of going black, hold some significance to the Arch getting put up on that same day? I think so. I have said all along that this Arch of Triumph has been invoking Isis (Venus) from the beginning.
