Michael fought with his Angels, and the Dragon fought with his. The compilers of Revelations wove the esoteric with the exoteric, combining Egyptian, Persian and Babylonian terminology and symbology together. On one side of the 'battle' we see the 'good angels,' each angel's name ending with 'el,' the semitic term for the sun. The 'good guys' were really the summer signs of the Zodiac, the Hebrew names being Micha-el, Abdi-el, Azra-el etc.. The' bad guys' bore the Egyptian names for the winter months, their names ending with -on, the Egyptian name for the sun; the sun in winter bringing signs of impending evil. Therefore we have Abadd-on, Apolly-on etc.. Taken in context we see a Hebrew interpretation of a 'heavenly' battle between the Egyptian and Hebrew 'gods,' for the exoteric explanation. The 'Lord' of the Opposite,' was said to be domiciled in the sign in opposition of where the sun happened to be. This' contrary' god was called Beli-el. Baalzebub was domiciled in Scorpio, which gives the 'kiss' of death to god's sun every autumn, causing his 'fall.' The esoteric meaning is the battle of winter against summer. The very word Autumn is comprised of the Egyptian names Atum, old god of the world and darkness, matter, and Aten, title of the 'beneficent' sun. Hell was always said to be in the north, the great abyss referring to the constellation Draco revolves in an endless serpentine loop. Draco is one of the latin terms for 'snake.' Drag-on is an Egyptian term for the north 'pole' where eternal winter was said to hold his carnival or Circus(circuit}. Helping him were his 'Baals' and 'Ons' Of Chaldea and Egypt.
