Astrology is foremost a study of celestial phenomena, and how it relates to the local world around us. It also considers things that are not phenomena, but instead purely mathematical, such as nodes and dark focal points, like the Black Moon, represented in charts with this glyph, the astrological symbol for the lunar apogee, or … Continue reading On the DC Obelisk – Part IV
Of all the symbols in the Sibly engraving, none are more obscure than the grouping of five elements amidst the Native man. If we see these as Masonic symbols, the picture becomes more clear. Firstly, it has been my contention that this scene depicts a foundational event for the Federal Government, and the cube at … Continue reading The Cornerstone Always Goes in the Northeast
My intention in the last post was to introduce the contention that a deliberate and meaningful geometry was embedded in Sibly's "American Independence" engraving. Similar schemes are known to exist in other works of art from well before in history, and continue to this day. Though I have no direct evidence that Sibly's design was … Continue reading Of Washington DC, Sibly’s Justitia, and the 39°

The first is that the glyph is not actually in the chart, but dangling off, as if being held in by the degree/minute numbers to the right: Clearly the entire glyph is floating in space. This may be because Sibly ran out of room … Continue reading That Mercury is off the chart!
Much of what Sibly wrote seems archaic by today's standards, and much of the material is obsolete. This impairs somewhat our present-day reading of the text, but one clue emerged a few months ago. First, the engraving: The chart, in square format common to the day, lists the seven classic planets, the lunar node, uses … Continue reading That 19°49′ Aquarius Ascendant
Once again, I find myself deconstructing Sibly. No, not "Sibley." Well, yes, "Sibley," but we all know where that misspelling started and we'll never know all the folks who carried the mistake forward like a virus. Well, anyway. Here I am, again, with some news about Sibly. Big news, too. But to begin, we have … Continue reading Sibly’s Dangling Mercury
