Noah's Flood

The legend of Noah’s Flood begins in Aquarius during the astrological age of Taurus, and follows the sun path across the ecliptic from Aquarius to Pisces to Aries to Taurus to Gemini. For further reference, see Eden to Babel and a map of the Zodiac.

Noah personifies Aquarius the Waterman.

9These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation; Noah walked with God. (Gen. 6:9)

The animals went into the ark in twos.

9two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah. (Gen. 7:9)

When the sun passed into Aries, the land was dry. The lamb symbolizes land.

14In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. (Gen. 8:13-14)

The Argo Navis is such a large constellation that it was broken up into three constellations: Carina, Puppis and Vela, representing keel, stern and sail respectively. It lies far to the south on the celestial Tropic of Capricorn. The three sectors of Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces contain a lot of watery constellations and were known to ancients as the Sea.

Noah sent a raven to seek dry land. The raven went to and fro until the waters dried up.

7and sent forth a raven; and it went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the earth. (Gen. 8:7)

Then he sent a dove.

8Then he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters had subsided from the face of the ground; (Gen. 8:8)

There is a classic Greek myth built around the Argo Navis, called Jason and the Quest for the Golden Fleece. The story follows the sun around the Zodiac.

Noah got drunk and lay naked in his tent. Ham saw his nakedness and told his two brothers.

20Noah was the first tiller of the soil. He planted a vineyard;
21and he drank of the wine, and became drunk, and lay uncovered in his tent.
21And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. (Gen. 9:20-22)

In Taurus, we see Orion as Noah, Auriga as Ham and the Gemini twins as Shem and Jepheth. The three sons are looking down at their father.

Shem and Japheth covered their father but did not see his nakedness.

23Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. (Gen. 9:23)
