The solar messiah in the form of the Christ child showing its Egyptian roots in this 1644 painting. The mummy in Egypt was called the karast or fleshed. The karast became the Christ who, as an infant, lived in Egypt, according to the gospel legend. Mummies are only for the dead. So why is the newborn infant then wrapped as a mummy? Because the purpose of the mummy was to the preserve the flesh for resurrection. He is the mummy reborn. Yet how could that be unless he had lived before? Of course, he had. The solar allegory is ever repeating because the sun is reborn every year from its death which is simultaneous. As the old sun of the previous year dies, the new sun of the new year is born. The wrappings of the old mummy become the swaddling clothes of the reborn infant.

The risen mummy is Orion, the constellation, which the Egyptians attributed to Horus--the Egyptian Christ or karast. Orion was where the dead pharaohs were thought to go. As we watch Orion rise, it appears upright--the mummy risen. As it rises, the Southern Cross is seen descending. After goes Scorpio. To the Egyptians, the risen mummy, Orion, was rising up to vanquish the cross upon which he was slain and Scorpio who, in the legend stung Orion and killed him. The risen mummy arises to vanquish both. Hence the karast returns to vanquish his enemies and his slayers--the messiah, the Christ.

The astrological drama was played out in the heavens and the mummy needed to be preserved long enough to outlast the current zodiacal age in order to rise in the next one. That was why Egyptians originally prepared mummies to last 3000 years. It was actually 2160 years--the length of a zodiacal age. In the painting below, the karast arises in the new age of the fish. The age of Aries has ended and the age of Pisces has begun. And we see Aries in the painting witnessing the birth of his successor.
