Fourth of July | A Masonic Holiday

 The Eye of Horus, the Eye of Providence or the All-Seeing Eye of God inside a triangle surrounded by the glow of Sirius, the Blazing Star of masonry (on the gate of Aachen Cathedral, Germany) is also part of the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States.

Independence Day on 4th of July is commonly associated not with masonry but with fireworks, parades, barbecues, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies. However, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 actually occurred on July 2nd, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain's rule. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it two days later on July 4th. It was read from the balcony of the Council chamber of the State House to the citizens of Philadelphia on July 8th 1776. So why do the United States celebrate the 4th of July? Since many of the founding fathers were enlightened masons (illuminati) of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, and freemasonry is rooted in ancient mystery schools of solar worship, of course the date of the American Declaration of Independence was not arbitrary: In 1776 the solar aphelion (greek apo = from + helios = Sun = aphelion = away from the Sun) and the conjunction of the Sun with Sirius both happened to occur on July 4th.

Every year during the first days of July the Sun conjoins Sirius at 13.5 degrees Cancer, that is, the Sun moves in front of Sirius. Interestingly, this occurs when the major axis of the Earth’s orbit is also farthest from the Sun. Sirius is located in the constellation Canis Majoris – the Big Dog – (RA 6h45m8.9s and Dec -16°42'52.1" or 101.2833 degrees longitude and -16.7144 degrees declination) and is therefore known as the dog star. It is over twenty times brighter than our Sun and is twice as massive. At night time, Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and its blue-white glare never failed to amaze stargazers since the dawn of time. Sirius is said to be the Sun of our Sun, and as such more important for men on Earth than even the Galactic Center.

The Washington Monument is constructed within a Vesica Pisces
that is created by the orbiting bodies of our Sun and Sirius.
In Ancient Egypt, Sirius was regarded as the most important star in the sky. In fact, it was astronomically the foundation of the Egyptians’ entire religious system. It was revered as Sothis and was associated with Isis, the mother goddess of Egyptian mythology. Isis is the female aspect of a trinity formed by herself, Osiris and their son Horus. Ancient Egyptians held Sirius in such a high regard that most of their deities were associated, in some way or another, with Sirius. Anubis, the dog-headed god of death, had an obvious connection with the dog star and Toth-Hermes, the divine messenger and great teacher of humanity, was also esoterically connected with Sirius. The Egyptian calendar system was based on the heliacal rising of Sirius that occurred just before the annual flooding of the Nile during summer. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Sirius is described as the place where souls go after they leave the body, and Egyptian temples were oriented toward Sirius. The star’s celestial movement was also observed and revered by ancient Greeks, Sumerians, Babylonians and countless other civilizations. Sirius was therefore considered sacred and its apparition in the sky was accompanied with feasts and celebrations. The dog star heralded the coming of the hot and dry days of July and August, hence the popular term the dog days of summer. Since antiquity there has been much compelling speculation about a binary system of our Sun Helios and Sirius. 

The presidential inauguration ceremony performed once every four
years at exactly high noon and 19.5 days into the new year on the
balcony of the U.S. Capitol (the ever pregnant belly of Isis) facing
the Washington Monument (the erect phallus of Osiris) is giving birth
to the next U.S. president.
In this system the perigee cycle between the two causes periodicities of massive celestial upheavals and is the foundation of the Yuga cycles. (What the naked eye perceives as a single star is in fact a binary star system, consisting of a white main-sequence star of spectral type A0 or A1, termed Sirius A, and a faint white dwarf companion of spectral type DA2, called Sirius B). 

The esoteric foundation of the United States as well as that of the entire modern Western world rests upon this ancient Egyptian astro-theology. It is therefore important to understand that Egypt became Greece, Greece became Rome, Rome became Venice, Venice became Amsterdam and England, and England finally became the imperial United States or the latest incarnation of ancient Egypt. True, if there is an actual guiding intelligence to man's evolution, it most certainly should be associated with Sirius. And the United States, with its natal Sun conjunct Sirius, would represent the clearest channel for this extra-human agency to manifest its will, whatever that may be. However, for those assuming that supernatural guidance was America's eternal fate and triumph, it might be wise also to recall that so far all empires have had an expiration date: Regardless of financial strength, political power and knowledge of previous history life cycles, no empire leader has ever been able to prevent its supremacy from collapsing. For instance, the successive Chinese dynasties would always rise, stay and fall regardless of lessons learned from the past. Empire life cycles would repeat over and over following a same cyclical pattern of around 248 years: 1776 + 248 = 2024 (see also HERE).
