Sounds of speech and axis of world categories.
The sixth page compares atmospheric gods and space twins ASHVINS to zodiacal signs, also heavenly deities of Vedic mythology to magic numbers of Greek Pythagorean numerology according to parities of astrological circle with global world categories.

Information of this page can be interesting not only in scientific linguistics but also in cosmology, because according to parities of sounds of human speech with global world categories of universe and zodiacal signs it is possible to consider alphabets as cosmological schemes of world reality.


Sounds of human speech and zodiacal signs.
Global world categories and numerology of numbers.

As it has been told on previous pages, atmospheric gods of Vedic mythology correspond with numbers in numerology, and heavenly deities correspond with zodiacal signs in astrology. If to consider that numerological numbers and zodiacal signs correspond with global world categories then atmospheric and heavenly gods can be compared. And in essence atmospheric gods and vowel sounds of speech can be compared with zodiacal signs, also heavenly gods and corresponding consonant phonemes can be compared with numerological numbers, that is shown on the chart.

atmospheric gods of Vedic mythology with numbers in numerology Red color shows names of heavenly gods and letters of corresponding consonant phonemes.
Blue color shows names of atmospheric gods and letters of corresponding vowel phonemes.
Grey color shows symbols of zodiacal signs and numerological numbers.
Arrows in the center of astrological circle show ratios of iotated vowel sounds of speech with initial aniotated phonemes, also interrelations of corresponding atmospheric gods.
Sounds and - RUDRA and TRITA APTYA - numbers 1 and 11.
Sounds and - APAS and AHY BUDHNYA - numbers 9 and 19.
Sounds and - MATARISHVAN and ADJA ECAPAD - numbers 7 and 17.
Sounds and - PARJANYA and APAM NAPAT - numbers 3 and 13.


Green color specifies global world categories according to which numerological numbers and names of atmospheric Vedic gods are compared to zodiacal signs within astrological circle.
Axis of energy - Leo and Aquarius - numbers 1 and 9 - RUDRA and APAS.
Axis of matter - Taurus and Scorpio - numbers 3 and 7 - PARJANYA and MATARISHVAN.

INDRA - number 5 - sound - center of astrological circle.
INDRA corresponds with central magic number in numerology and consequently with center of astrological circle without connection to any concrete sign of zodiac. But sound is forming for iotated vowel phonemes which correspond to global world categories of movement and life, also to cardinal zodiacal signs Aries, Crab, Libra, Capricorn which are key within astrological circle. Therefore INDRA is central deity of Vedic mythology for atmospheric and heavenly gods.
RUDRA and MITRA - number 1 - sounds and - Leo - energy.

RUDRA is main divine entity among atmospheric gods, also MITRA has second importance in hierarchy of heavenly deities, that there corresponds to value of zodiacal sign Leo where Sun is dominating heavenly body which is astrological symbol of imperial authority.

More detailed information on parities of heavenly and atmospheric gods of Vedic myths with zodiacal signs I shall try to publish in the future.
Pay attention that heavenly gods SURYA, USHAS, SAVITR, PUSHAN correspond with cardinal signs within zodiacal astrological circle, namely Vedic mythological deities which are not children of ADITI but descendants of DYAUS and PRITHVI, and consequently brothers of INDRA, because global world categories of movement and life have basic value in structure of universe.
It is necessary to tell that the shown comparison of numerological numbers with zodiacal signs is complex, because in the context of classical numerology there are no ciphers 11, 13, 17, 19.
Complex of numerological numbers within astrological circle of twelve zodiacal signs can be considered as set of geometrical polygons.
Lion or Leo - number one - geometrical point.
Zodiacal sign Leo has dominating Sun which symbolizes autocracy and one-man management or indivisible source of energy, that corresponds to number 1 in numerology and single point which is initial for all geometrical polygons.
Numerological number 1 corresponds with goddess ANGELOS who in the context of Greek mythology was similar to solar light.

Zodiacal sign Taurus corresponds with global world category of matter which can have three physical conditions, namely firm, liquid, gaseous, that corresponds to number 3 and triangle.
Twins or Gemini - number four - quadrangle or square.
Zodiacal sign Gemini has dominating Mercury which symbolizes moving in space, that corresponds to number 4 and four apexes of square. Because space has four reference points, namely east, south, west, north.
Center of astrological circle - number five - pentagon.
Center of zodiacal circle in the context of geocentric astrological model of universe corresponds with the planet Earth, that corresponds to number 5 and pentagon, because structure of terrestrial globe has geometrical form of dodecahedron, namely volumetric polyhedron which is formed by twelve pentagonal figures.
Sagittarius - number six - hexagon.
Zodiac sign Sagittarius has dominating Jupiter which symbolizes expansion of existing Universe, that corresponds to number 6 and hexagon which has six apexes as image of four horizontal and two vertical reference points of world space.
JUPITER in the context of Roman mythology is main god who personifies absolute world supremacy, also geometrical figure of hexagon is mystical symbol of ideal global harmony.
Scorpion or Scorpio - number seven - heptagon.
Zodiac sign Scorpio corresponds with VIVASVAT or MARTANDA who in the context of Vedic mythology have been rejected by own mother, because he was born without hands and legs, that corresponds to heptagon, as numerological number 7 has connection with HEPHAESTUS who in Greek myths was dethroned from mountain Olympus on the ground and became lame god.
Also number 7 corresponds with PROMETHEUS who have been expelled from Olympus and is chained to rock.
Also number 7 corresponds with TANTALUS who has been taken by gods on the sky, but has been thrown in underground empire of death.

Zodiacal sign Aquarius has dominating Uranus, that corresponds to nonagon as numerological number 9 has connection with APHRODITE URANIA who in Greek mythology was born from blood of URANUS.
Also number 9 has connection with NEMESIS who in myths of Ancient Greece is celestial goddess of fair punishment, that there corresponds to characteristics of planet Uranus in astrology.
Number 10 - decagon or geometrical polygon of ten apexes is derivative figure of pentagon.
Libra or Balance - number 11 - geometrical polygon of eleven apexes.
Cardinal zodiacal sign Libra and numerological number 11 correspond with TRITA APTYA and USHAS, also with GAIA who is third primary potentiality of universe in the context of Greek myths.
Number 12 - geometrical polygon of twelve apexes is derivative figure of triangle and hexagon, also quadrangle or square.
Cancer or Crab - number 13 - geometrical polygon of thirteen apexes.
Cardinal zodiacal sign Crab and numerological number 13 correspond with APAM NAPAT and SAVITR, also with EROS who is second primary potentiality of universe in Greek myths.

Cardinal signs of zodiac and numerological numbers 11, 13, 17, 19 are connected with primary potentiality of universe because of connection with global world categories of life and movement which have arisen before space and time also energy and matter.
Six global world categories can be compared with Zoroastrian deities, because religious system of Zoroastrianism or Avestic myths has arisen as derivative from Vedic mythology.
Main deity in Zoroastrianism is AHURA MAZDA who corresponds to central position of INDRA in hierarchy of Vedic gods. Divine qualities of AHURA MAZDA are six AMESHA SPENTAS which can be correlated with axes of global world categories.
VOHU MANAH - generality - space.
KHSHATHRA VAIRYA - constancy - time.
ASHA VAHISHTA - uniformity - energy.
ARMAITI - stability - matter.
HAURVATAT - purposefulness - movement.
AMERETAT - realization - life.
