We know that Atlantis was Poseidon’s Island who we have identified with Manannán mac lir. Let us now take a closer look at Poseidon to find out
exactly who this character is.
First lets look at the way he is depicted in art and see if there are any clues which will reveal who he was. We know he is associated with a trident
but now lets look at those strange sea horses he rides. They are very distinctive, the upper half being like a horse and the lower half like a fish.
Would that remind you of anything, perhaps Capricorn!
Capricorn in astrology is a water sign hence the association with this sea animal.
In India Vedic astrology Capricorn is called “Makara-ketu”
In a Hindu temple, the Makara often serves as the structural bookends of a thoranam or archway around a deity. The arch emerges up from the jaws of
one Makara, rises to its peak, the Kirtimukha (the ‘Face of Glory'), and descends into the gaping jaws of another Makara. Varuna is also depicted as
a white man sitting on the monster makara. As a marine monster, it is also shown with the head and legs of an antelope, and the body and tail
of a fish.
Makara is depicted in various forms in India but from the above we can see that this also includes the format of an antelope upper part and a fishes
From the above we are also informed that it is “Varuna” who rides Makara, would this confirm that Varuna is actually Poseidon.
Varuna is a sea god just like Poseidon and interestingly he possesses a trident tipped weapon called a “Pash”! This is conformation that Poseidon
the father of Atlantis is associated with the star sign of Capricorn!
Note the blue skin of Varuna riding a variant of Makara and holding a golden trident!
What else can we learn now that will uncover for us the true identity of Poseidon (Manannan).
The Babylonians associated Capricorn with the god Ea, calling him the “antelope of the sea” You however may know Ea by his earlier Sumerian
Enki, the father of Atlantis!
