In this article, we look at Shu and the myths and legends surrounding Shu, Shu relationship to and with other Egyptians Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
Shu was the rays and energy released by the Sun, Ra- Re, as it opened its great eye, upon his subjects of solar system and beyond. The ancients presumed, that like a child in the womb the Sun god was dormant and unseen prior to his fiery birth. This is logical, the Sun, like the planets which surround it, was not formed in a moment, it took time, for it to reach the critical mass, when it turned into an atomic fireball. [I have had the privilege of having the theories of Einstein explained to me with great logic, and they as far as they go, are hard to argue against, however, he never got around to the equation of critical mass. Critical mass, has little to do directly with the weight, or density of a possible star. For there are stars many hundreds of times, even thousands of times bigger than our Sun, it bears a relationship to the cloud of material it forms from, the gravitational forces the cloud produces, for the same cloud may form many nucleuses, Suns-stars.
