The Carthaginian war goddess Tanit versus Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of God

Interesting to note the difference in solar eclipse symbolism between the Carthaginian and Roman Empires. While the vast majority of solar eclipse symbolism in Roman numismatics is solar crescent "horns up," on the remaining Carthaginian coins it is "horns down." During the First Punic War in 240 BC, Carthaginian mercenaries revolted in Sardina. By 238 BC the entire island was under Roman control. The Carthaginians placed this crescent on the coin to represent the 241 BC partial eclipse or in anticipation of the 233 BC eclipse which went directly over the island. The symbolism of the horns up or down motif is likely in reference to before or after totality. Note Carthage was founded before Rome in the 9th century BC.

The symbolism in the image of our Lady of Guadalupe strikes a direct contrast to an image very familiar to the ancient Israelites. Tanit was principle war diety and fertility goddess of the Carthaginian Empire. She is originally Phoenician and from the city of Tyre. She was the unmarried virginal consort of Baal. Child sacrifice was required in the worship of Tanit and Baal. Ancient Israelites who abandoned their relationship with God participated in her worship by killing and eating their children. Note the similarity with Aztec child sacrifice and cannibalism. The Old Testament has many commandments against these practices. Our Lady of Guadalupe stands against this demon and her practices that have destroyed countless past civilizations including Ancient Israel.

2000 years ago the cross was a Roman symbol of death and terror. Jesus Christ transformed this symbol into a universal sign of God's love, hope and resurrection. Solar eclipse events are recorded in Roman mythology during the conception of Romulus and Remus by the war god Mars and during the foundation of the city of Rome. The solar eclipse to the Romans was a sign from their gods that war was upon the Earth. The solar eclipse symbol of the star/pellet within the crescent on Roman coins and legionary standards was also a sign of their god's approval of Roman domination over conquered lands. Fifteen hundred years later, the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" Icon was presented to the New World as an inverted Roman Legionary Standard. Jesus Christ changed these symbols of Roman domination and slavery into an everlasting sign of God's love and compassion.
