In religio-mythology, morning sun (CR:4) (LH:7) (TL:11) refers to the sun god conceptualized in its origination in the morning, either in the form of Khepri, Horus the Child, or the Bennu (phoenix), depending on period and creation myth.



The god Khepri, the dung beetle god, as either Atum-Khepri or Ra-Khepri, was an early form of the morning sun:

As dung beetles had the ability to fly, and also hatched their young in round "sun-shaped" dung balls, which they rolled along the ground, to put into their nesting holes, they were seen to embody the new day's sun, "flown" into the sky do to say.

Horus the child

As Horus, considered the oldest god of all, was conceptualized as being a falcon or a falcon caring the sun disc or sun ball on its head, was able to fly, he was considered or associated with being the "morning sun".[1]
