RoyalCraftiness Posted January 18 Share Posted January 18 (edited) Wonderful discovery Kate. The mystery person is revealing an awful lot in those two pages. The S.M. and the T.T. seen as if through glass (a telescope) are references to planets and the shapes they form suggestively when considered in astrological terms. Saturn and Mars are those planets (in opposition), and the T.T. that are two triangles overlapping are ornaments in the sky that marked a time of honor. Vulcan, not to be forgotten on account of having forged the plantation, is also a planet, theorized to be between the Sun and Mercury in those days. Alchemically and astrologically speaking, it is indistinguishable from the Sun. The Virginia colony was dear to this person and he saw it as a new shining beacon of light, or a new Sun not unlike the one someone had projected to be seen going from Heliopolis beyond the Pillars of Hercules to the New World. A bit more about the two triangles. One of them is a triangle formed in the sky (or on a planisphere) by the position of Saturn, Mars and Vulcan that one specific time. The other is formed by the position of Saturn Mars and Venus at that same time. In fact, the two triangles are prominent in the sky when an individual named Francis Bacon was born in 1561. I've marked off S and M. Vulcan is between the Sun and Mercury, Venus that next placement to the right of it. If you project both triangle sides beyond their Vs they will meet at a point P on paper which I have placed. The newly created triangle SMP taken with a line from M to the position of the Moon is a mirror image of the Northern Triangle. This individual may have sensed that this asterism which contains the cross was particularly significant to his life. In the sky above his head in the zenith position was the constellation of Cygnus (C=100, Francis Bacon=100 in simple cipher). He may have seen that one as near and dear to him. Anyway , really nice find. The added fact that this is on page 27 and that we can retrieve Psalm 19 and see the similarities with this in terms of subject matter is wonderful. Here's a look at the sky chart for that night showing Cygnus in zenith. Edited January 19 by RoyalCraftiness 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
