According to the ancient Armenian beliefs, double headed eagles or snakes were the symbols of the bright planet Venus (Արուսյակ մոլորակ – Arusyak molorak) which, while appearing before the sun rises, was considered as լուսաբեր – lusaber (word by word translation is lu(y)s – the light, ber – bring)” and, while appearing before the sun sets, was considered as Գիշերավար (gisheravar, word by word translation is gisher – night, var is the coming here). Also, tillage is վար (var) in Armenian.

  1. Curious that “Lusaber” is so similar to “Lucifer” which means light bringer in Latin. Of course b’s and v’s are often transposed.

  2. Nice One my LUSAPER.
