Connections with Harry Potter and Ancient Egypt? Oh, yes.

Mad for Harry Potter fans posted about this recently on the ‘Waiting for Harry” forum provided by Barnes & Noble for anxious readers:

During battle against the evil God Seth Horus was transformed into a Golden Orb with two Wings. It’s floating right under the Title in the middle of the cover of “Quidditch Through the Ages.”

I found this info when I was looking up the Vulture Symbol in Egyptian mythology. There are some overlapping symbols with The Vulture as the symbol of the Mother Guardian who is responsible for protecting Horus. So Sometimes the Horus is seen with two vultures flying at his side.


Um snitch- Horus- maybe not so far off really.”

This is done by using the bits of the picture as the fractions, and together it is seen as a “whole.” Interestingly enough, the ancient Egyptians threw out the remaining 1/64, so 63/64 = 1.”

How fascinating that the Snitch and the Winged Sun do look alike.

Boy, did these guys get it wrong about Egyptian Fractions and the Eye of Horus. Throw out the remainder! That’s part of the mystique of the Sacred Symbols that you call hieroglyphs!

Do let me try to explain, the missing fraction, 1/64, is equvalent to “ro”, or “a mouthful”, or about 2.5 oz. The missing fraction, the magical part, needed to make the Eye of Horus whole. And it is all to do with the ancient legend of the ‘Contendings of Horus and Set”.

But that isn’t all, the six parts of the Eye of Horus also represent the six senses. What could possibly be represented by the missing part? Something magical? Something divine? The Seventh Sense?

Trust me, we did not discard it.

According to the legends, Thoth supplied the missing magical part to make the Eye of Horus whole.

So what was that missing magical part?

All you mad Harry Potter fans, have you studied real magic? Do you have a clue?
