. . . another one which says it all really.



This is the Masonic Emblem from Lodge Number 78 in London, (c. 1742).
The Latin inscription, “SVA SIDERA NORVNT” translates as “His own constellations have acknowledged him,” in reference to the Masonic concept of the “Grand Architect,” God.

Some background:

This image was used for the reverse side of a silver medal now in the British Museum (ca. 1742). We are told this medal was created on special command by the pope to commemorate the visit to Rome by the English Antiquary Martin Folkes in 1733, whose bust is featured on the obverse. Folkes was appointed a member of the Royal Society by its president, Sir Isaac Newton, in 1716. Folkes was also a Freemason and a member of the Lodges in London and Norwich, which would explain why this image was used as the Masonic Emblem for the London Lodge.

Interpretation:

The two columns flanking the entrance to the Pyramid represent the two Solstice Positions of the Sun - relating to the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer. The entrance itself represents the central position of the Sun on the Horizon during the Equinoxes - symbolising ‘Balance’ and Equilibrium’ and in every way we can apply it - but meaning more in terms of balance of mind, body and consciousness.

The values of the angles illustrated in the image on the right are exact - absolutely precise.
It appears that the angles were meant to be measured because we are given a straight edge in the clear white oval section below the Sphinx.

The right edge of the face of the pyramid flanked by the two columns is angled at 23.5º. Note how this angle, determined by the edge of the pyramid, goes through the centre of the circular emblem as if representing the Earth’s Celestial Pole or Axis - the medal itself representing the earth.
The left edge of the pyramid face is 11.75º exactly . . . 2 x 11.75º = 23.5º
There are 30 rows of laid stones in this pyramid, perhaps a reference to the Great Pyramid’s location – being 30° N of the Equator – and on both sides these rows of stones are laid at the angle of 6.5º, which is the closest the Great Pyramid come to the Ecliptic Plane as the earth rotates on its axis daily.
Also, note that the south side edge of this pyramid on the far left presents two different angles.

The lower angle is 33º (which is the highest Degree in Freemasonry), and the angle above is 26.5º - the same angle (rounded off) of the Ascending and Descending passages inside the Great Pyramid as well as the angle on which the King and Queen’s Chambers are both centred.
This angle of 26.5º between the two chambers, plus the angle of 6.5º which is the angle the King's Chamber is offset from the apex = 33º.

The phrase "SUA SIDERA NORUNT" comes from Virgil's Elysium,

“. . . which knows perpetual spring and shady groves, with its own sun and lit by its own stars - solemque suum, sua sidera norunt".
(Aeneid, Book VI: 541).

The Sphinx here is really interesting.
It has the face of a man (Aquarius), the back of a lion (Leo) the front legs and chest of a bull, (Taurus) and from the rear paw, an Eagle's talon (Scorpio).

The astrological signs of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio also represent the four ‘ages of man’known as the ‘fixed’ signs of the zodiac.
All four constellations are at ninety degrees to each other in the heavens – i.e., quadrants.
Like the two days of the Equinoxes in the annual cycle associated with the cardinal signs Aries and Libra, the fixed signs of Leo and Aquarius represent the ‘end-beginning’ point, and the ‘halfway point’ in the precessional cycle.
As Scott and I have shown in the book and on other threads posted here on the AoM forum, these two Zodiac Ages are referenced by the two sets of Queens’ pyramids on the Giza Plateau. These two sets of three pyramids mark the maximum and minimum culmination points of the Orion belt stars in the Precessional cycle of 26,000 years.
And like the Solstices, the ages of Taurus and Scorpio represent the extremes reached in each half of the cycle.

We can see then that the very existence of the angles I have found within the angle geometry of the Great Pyramid, were already known about - as indeed confimed in this Masonic image of the Great Pyramid - again all the angles are precise.
