I would like to present you some findings regarding the Four Winds as laid out in the Book of Enoch versus the Descriptions found in the Urbano Monte Map. This is just the beginning and hopefully more is going to follow soon.
I will be talking about this section of the Map:
1.) The East Wind - Levante
Regarding the East Wind ("Levante") the Map says:
Let's see what the Book of Enoch has to say about the East Wind, especially about the Portal in the Middle, i.e. the Second Gate.It (the east wind) is temperate and healthy and it brings rain.
Regarding the First Gate we read in Chapter 75:4 :
Regarding the Second Gate, the Middle Gate, we read in Chapter 75:5 :The first of these winds proceeds from the gate termed the eastern, through the first gate on the east, which inclines southwards. From this goes forth destruction, drought, heat, and perdition.
WOW! Look at the Keywords found in the Map's description:From the second gate, the middle one, proceeds equity. There issue from it rain, fruitfulness, health, and dew;
Regarding the South Wind ("Ostro") the Map says:
All in all the description of the South Wind is very negative and it must be noted that the "blowing head" is the only one who looks different than the other ones and seems to symbolize "death & destruction".It is unhealthy (maybe this can also mean "destructive, disastrous or causing destruction"), hot and humid.
Furthermore it is pestiferous and generates thunderbolts. [This part is not easy to understand:] It prevented the virtue of men and animals and makes the bodies grains.
I could not find a fitting description in the Book of Enoch concerning the South wind (regarding the Second Gate / Middle Gate), but there is a description regarding "the last gate [of the West Winds], which is southwards" in Enoch Chapter 75:11 :
This seems to be a perfect description of the South Wind as portrait in the Map.And from the last gate, which is southwards, proceed drought, destruction, scorching, and perdition.
Nevertheless, regarding the first portal of the South Wind it is said in Enoch 75:6 :
Maybe the order of the winds in this Map is set up differently than in the Book of Enoch. This Map totals 32 different winds (counting the blowing heads), instead of 12 winds as mentioned in the Book of Enoch.After these proceed the south winds through three principal gates; through their first gate, which inclines eastwards, proceeds a hot wind.
3.) The West Wind - Ponente
Regarding the West Wind ("Ponente") the Map says:
This is in line with what Enoch says in Chapter 75:10 :It serves to generate favour to all things. Through it all things on earth bear fruit.
4.) The North Wind - Tramontana...from the middle gate proceed rain, health, and blessing;
Regarding the North Wind ("Tramontana") the Map says:
A cold and dry wind that makes good weather. It makes the bodies freeze and constricts them (maybe makes it hard for them to move or work?).
The last part is strange as it seems to say that something is purified ("purifica"), but I cannot make sense of the word "humori". Because this is translated as "humors". Maybe it is an old word for Humidity? or it refers to ones mood? Maybe a reference of cleaning the air? I have no idea!
In Enoch Chapter 75:9 we read something similar to this; at least its description of the middle gate is also positive:
However, a cold and dry wind is not mentioned regarding the middle portal, but regarding the third portal (Enoch 75:9) :From the middle direct gate proceed rain, dew, life, and health.
All in All it must be stated that according to the Teachings of Enoch all "Middle Gates" have a positive effect on the earth, whereas the "First & Third Gates" bring bad things to earth.And from the third gate, which is westwards, inclining towards the south, proceed mist, frost, snow, rain, dew, and blight.
Maybe this is a hidden reference to staying on the right path? As we read in Deuteronomy 5:32-33:
32 So you shall observe to do just as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right or to the left. 33 You shall walk in all the way which the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you will possess.
This is it for now! I try to translate more of the other winds in the upcoming days
Blessings from Above!
