We speak the names of the gods on a daily basis without realizing it. Every day of the week, religious and non-religious people alike follow the old pagan tradition of giving thanks to ancient gods. In ancient Mesopotamia, astrologers so it's no surprise that each day of the week is named after a god believed to rule the lives of mortals. The Romans and Germanic people also adopted the same gods under different names. It is predominantly the Germanic and Norse gods used in in Europe and America.

Thursday is named after the Roman god Jupiter, the Greek Zeus, who was the god of sky and thunder. In Latin, the day was known as Iovis Dies. For the Celtic countries Thursday derived from Thunor, Donar (German, Donnerstag) and Thor are derived from the name of the Germanic god of thunder, Thunraz, equivalent to Jupiter. Jupiter or Jove is encoded in: Italian giovedà , Spanish jueves, French jeudi, Sardinian jà via, Catalan dijous, and Romanian joi. This is also reflected in the -Celtic Welsh dydd Iau. The astrological and astronomical sign of the planet Jupiter) is sometimes used to represent Thursday.

In India, the word for Thursday is Guruvar -- var meaning day and guru. In Thai, the word is Wan Pharuehatsabodi -- referring to the Hindu deity Ba' "haspati, According to Hindu Mythology the Vedic god Brihaspati or Jupiter is guru of the gods whereas Shukracharya is the guru of the Danavas who are a serpent or a dragon of the Tribe of Dan. Early Danites fled Egypt at the time of the Exodus, and migrated through SarDINia, and left their trail along the sea-coasts of the Mediterranean. Thus Dan, who was a "lion's whelp" who would "leap from Bashan," leaped all the way to Ireland, where historians explain that the early settlers were known as the "Tuatha de Danaan" -- literally, the "tribe of Dan." The Greeks called them the Danoi, the Romans called them Danaus. The Serpent in Greek mythology is also related to Zeus. In the earliest recorded forms of Zeus, he would present himself as a serpent. And in the form of the serpent, Zeus, the Father of the Gods, gave birth to Dionysus.

In England and Scotland today we find Dun-dee, Dun-kirk, Dunbar, Dunraven, E-din-burgh, and Lon-don .In Ireland, we find such names as Dans-Lough, Dan-Sower, Dan-Monism, Dun-dalke, Dun-drum, Don-egal Bay, Don-egal City, Dun-glow and Lon-don-derry, as well as Din-gle, Dun-garven and Duns-more, which means "MORE DANS." Then there is the famous Irish ballad "Danny Boy." It's obvious that Ireland is filled with names which derive from the ancient patriarch of the Hebrews -- DAN, the son of Jacob! Danites settled in Ireland, Danmark, Russia and all over Europe.

Ancient European river names like the Danube and various rivers called Don in Russia, Scotland, England and France reflect this. The Danube which flows to the Black Sea is their most important river and could reflect their eastern origins. An offshoot from the Khazars merged with the Picts of Scotland. They were related to the Scandinavians, Dan Mark (Denmark) and to the Anglo-Saxons. The gods of Scandinavia, the "Aseir", and of the Anglo-Saxons were either of Hebrew and Khazar origin or at the least belonged to the Danites.

In Hindu astrology, Guru rules over (Sagittarius) and (Pisces), he is exalted in (Cancer) and in his fall in Makara (Capricorn). The Sun, Moon and Mars are considered friendly to Brihaspati, hostile to Mercury and neutral towards Saturn. In Vedic astrology the element of Guru is considered to be of ether. Thus this indicates vastness, growth and expansion in a person's life. Brihaspati also balances past karma, religion, philosophy, knowledge and issues relating to children.

In the Nahuatl language, Thursday is the "day of Tezcatlipoca". Tezcatlipoca is Quetzalcoatl's rival, and the servants of the two deities never cooperate. Tezcatlipoca dwells in the constellation of Ursa Major. For the Aztecs Tezcatlipoca represented celestial creativity and the divine pater, father or pope. He was the soul of the world, the creator of sky and earth,

Thor, like Zeus, has fierce battles with a monstrous serpent; Zeus with Typhon Thor with Jà rmungandr. Norse myth fortells their deaths during Ragnarà k--. Thor will kill Jà rmungandr and then walk nine paces before falling dead, having been poisoned by the serpent's venom. The lightening from Thor's hammer has been identified with the swastika.

Thor is equated with Indra, who drinks Soma, and defeats Vitrà . The secret of the gods was that their mystical powers of longevity, authority, and creativity came from Soma, the same female essence.-Star-fire. Lakshmi gave Soma to Indra to make him king of the gods. Thor reached the magic land of enlightenment and eternal life by bathing in a river filled with the menstrual blood. Odin's power came from drinking the 'wisdom blood' from the triple cauldron in the womb of the goddess known as Kali-Maya.

Odin's theft of menstrual magic parallels that of Indra, who stole the ambrosia of immortality in the same way. Indian myth called the sacred fluid, Soma. For the Greeks, "ambrosia referred to the sacred blood of the goddess. In Vedic mythology Soma was produced by the churning of the primal sea (Kali's 'ocean of blood' or 'sea of milk'). In these myths, we see the serpent as a symbol of the mother goddess; a role that Iormungand plays. Tyr and Thor play the role of Marduk who slays Tiamat whose spirit lives as humans have the DNA of her husband Kingu. We are their children.
