The Aryan Solar God, and the Age of Aries

Aries is a typical Indo-European (Aryan) god of war and equates to the Roman Mars, the Germanic Thor/Thunor/Donar, Tyr, the Celtic Teutates and the Vedic Indra.

The Aryans were considered by the ancients to be a solar race, their most sacred sign being the swastika (卐), the best known of all solar symbols. Aries, whilst being a war god, was also regarded as a solar deity, astro-theologically speaking (age of Aries: 2160 to 0 BC), and as a fire sign symbolised by the horns of a ram.

The English word 'Ram' and the Latin 'Aries' contain the Aryan root Ar or Ra, so common in names denoting the masculine, fiery, and creative aspect of nature, seen in the word Aryan itself. In the zodiac of the fifth root-race the sign of the ram leads off, and in astrology is called a fiery, cardinal sign, the house of Mars (Aries), as well as the house of exaltation of the sun (Ra).

Forget January 1, The real new year is March 20 - the Spring Equinox and Astrological New Year - when the Sun charges into fiery Aries to banish winter's chill. During the Spring Equinox, we in the Northern Hemisphere catch "spring fever," as plants and trees sprout new leaves and begin bearing fruit.

Sphinxes with ram's heads, called criosphinxes, are said to represent the period of the equinoctial points passing through the sign Aries of the celestial zodiac, following upon the age when the bull was the sign (Taurus).

According to H.P. Blavatsky, Egyptian deities with heads of rams, "are solar, and represent under various aspects the phases of generation and impregnation. Their ram's heads denote this meaning, a ram ever symbolizing generative energy in the abstract, while the bull was the symbol of strength and the creative function."
