The bright twin northern stars adjacent to the milky way have been revered by peoples all over the globe for many thousands of years. In the Norse traditions they were called The Eyes of Thiazi – These are the eyes of the sky giant that stole Idun’s apples. In ancient India they were called The Ashvins or Ashwini Kumaras (Sanskrit: अश्विन्, aśvin-, dual aśvinauअश्विनौ), in Hindu mythology, they are two Vedic gods, divine twin horsemen in the Rigveda, sons of Saranyu, a goddess of the clouds and wife of Surya in his form as Vivasvant. Nasatya and Darsa are names of ashvins. They symbolize the shining of sunrise and sunset, appearing in the sky before the dawn in a golden chariot, bringing treasures to men and averting misfortune and sickness. They are the doctors of gods and are devas of Ayurvedic medicine. They are represented as humans with the heads of horses. Origins:The Ashvins are analagous to the Proto-Indo-European horse twins. Their cognates in other Indo-European mythologies include the Baltic Ašvieniai, the Greek Castor and Polydeuces(Pollux), the English Hengist and Horsa, and the Welsh Bran and Manawydan.(Wikipedia) In ancient Egypt they are seen as a Man and Woman holding hands and the entire Temple of Hathor, the divine mother at Denderah was aligned to these stars as they arise in the east. This can be seen on the famous zodiac at Denderah(see image) one of the few temples in the world with a sky map to show how the temple is aligned. They are the couple toward the center just below the thigh bone in the center and the left one is exactly in line with the eastern gate on the bottom of the image. In aboriginal traditions of the Americas these twins made up the sacred ballcourt where the games of life and death between the twin heroes were played out.” According to one Mayan version, the Hero Twins were Xbalanque and Hunahpu (Modern K'iche': Xb'alanke and Junajpu) who were ballplayers like their father and uncle, Hun Hunahpu and Vucub Hunahpu. Summoned to Xibalba by the Lords of the Underworld, the father and uncle were defeated and sacrificed.” From Wikipedia These same twins were renowned also in the Native North American traditions as the twin brothers called Monster Slayer and Born of Water by the Navajo/Dine and also as the twin gandsons of Spider Grandmother, the weaver of the worlds. In Christian teachings they were sometimes regarded as Adam and Eve and in Jewish teachings they were considered also the twin sons of Rebecca. They enter the western religious traditions where we see their symbols of the two white horses appear as coming out of the north in the biblical book of the prophet Zechariah and their famous appearance although hidden, is in the Revelation of John where they appear as white horses, one in chapter six and the other in chapter nineteen. These twins are a key to the deeper understanding of these scriptures that were written in a hidden way to guard what was regarded as important secrets.The gnostic writers of that Christian book hid a lot in the symbolism with it’s connections to the pagan mystery traditions so as to keep it from censorship and keep their heads on their bodies. Zechariah 6:3: ג וּבַמֶּרְכָּבָה הַשְּׁלִשִׁית, סוּסִים לְבָנִים; וּבַמֶּרְכָּבָה, הָרְבִעִית, סוּסִים בְּרֻדִּים, אֲמֻצִּים. 3 and in the third chariot white horses; You can see here on this carving of the deity Mithra which was a big religious brotherhood in ancient Rome how the torch of Mithra highlights the depiction of the Dioscuri/twins and therefore stressing their importance as torchbearers through the centuries and millenia. Here are some of their depictions on ancient coins: ROMAN REPUBLIC République romaine. Mn. Cordius Rufus (vers 46 av. J-C). Denier F / VGROMAN REPUBLIC vers 46 av.

The white horse being an image of the unification of wisdom lineages from ancient India(kalki vishnu), Jewish(Zechariah) and Christian(Revelation) and Islamic teachings(Hadith).
