In the last (Feb 4) installment, I introduced a possible astrological chart for the Society of Jesus, or The Jesuits. This chart, as seen below, is drawn for the astrological default of Sun on the overhead meridian, or the "Midheaven," and the central focus of the chart is that Jupiter conjoins the fixed star Regulus … Continue reading A Brief Introduction to (some) Vatican Astrology – Part II
It has been said that the only institution in Western Culture to survive the Dark Ages was the Catholic Church of Rome. Yet, it may be even more remarkable that the Holy See has survived the Enlightenment and the industrial revolution. The reasons for Catholic longevity have taken up many volumes of historical analysis, and … Continue reading A Brief Introduction to (some) Vatican Astrology
When I started this blog 11+ years ago, it was meant to be a joint project between myself, Ed Kohout, and researcher John Ballantrae, who also had a keen interest in astrology. John is no longer with us, and I continue to mourn his loss. He was a voracious reader and researcher, and offered insights … Continue reading I miss you, John.
The recent debate over the correct birth time for USA Presidential candidate Hillary Diane Clinton has been interesting, to say the least. I hope, here, to present a defense of this time, using the standard dial-and-midpoint technique of Cosmobiology, or, as some call it, Symmetric Astrology. For a bit of background, see: https://youtu.be/-ffCemlJ7V0 And then … Continue reading A Cursory Look at the 2:18 am Birth Time for Hillary Clinton
Hooking up my old scanner to my PC proved to be disasterous, as I had to re-install everything from the ground up. So, taking a break from Sibly, we turn to other affairs of note, this time with a propaganda piece from the Revolutionary Period: This pro-Federalist piece calls on the wisdom of "returning" to … Continue reading “… And the ‘SATURNIAN AGE,’ return again.”
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 question arises, is the scene of the Sibly engraving a specific place, or is it just some generalized anywhere? Are they in New York, or Philadelphia? One night when I was looking at the graphic, and after realizing there are about seven really bizarre things about it, I wondered if there was anything to … Continue reading Where are they?
There are two things about Sibly's Mercury that are of note. 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
