Washington, D.C. is known today as one of the worlds most important
cities. Its original street layout is commonly thought of as
ingenuous in allowing the free flow of traffic in a city plan
designed for future expansion. Yet, an aerial view of the city in
the eyes of someone knowledgeable in astronomical, astrological,
historical, religious, magical, and occult symbols - offers a
different reason for the street layout of Washington, D.C.
There are many symbols that take shape from an aerial view of the
city streets of Washington. The symbols do not appear to be
accidental. First, because so many symbols are present and second
because of the location of these symbols to key buildings of
Government, to one another, to other streets, and to the north-south
and east-west axis.
The street layout of Washington, D.C. might be
considered a Labyrinth (an arrangement of buildings around enclosed
paths leading to a center that is difficult to find.) To enter a
Labyrinth and return from its center, symbolizes an aspect of
spiritual death and resurrection.
It appears the existence of the strange street lines of Washington,
D.C. was not unknown to people of the past. When Charles Dickens
first visited Washington, D.C, he climbed to the top of the Capital
Building to get a bird’s-eye view.
From the following quote, it is
evident Dickens could see something very important.
“It is sometimes called the City of Magnificent Distances, but it
might with greater propriety be termed the City of Magnificent
Intentions; for it is only on taking a bird’s-eye view of it from
top of the Capital that one can at all comprehend the vast designs
of its projector, an aspiring Frenchman.”
The following diagrams illustrates the locations of the predominate
symbols observed in the streets of Washington, D.C.
Many of these
symbols can be associated with magic, ancient
wisdom, religion, astronomy, and secret societies. If these symbols
are a monument of some sort, then they make up the largest monument
in the United States. Nineteen million tourist
will visit Washington, D.C. each year to see many national
But, few are aware
of this first monument established by George Washington and
THE SHIELD OF ZION - THE HEXAGRAM
The Star of David is often associated with the Jewish faith, the
flag of Israel, or God. But,
this symbol goes back many thousands of years and has been used by
many cultures to represent a common symbolic idea. Thousands of years
ago it was associated with the process
of birth. The symbol was adopted for the flag of Israel from an
emblem of the Zionist
Organization of 1897.
Early man chose the triangle as a divine shape. The triangle was
chosen because it was the
shape of the pubic hair area on both men and women. This area of the
human body was known to have something to do with the most mysterious
of early man’s mysteries that of human birth. Thus, the crossing of
two triangles represents an ancient birth symbol and
The idea was expanded upon by early religious sects that revered the
act of sex and birth. History records sex rituals as a main part of
many early organized religions. Aspects of these ancient religious
beliefs continues in most modern day religions that ask its
believers to abstain from sex except for conception. The result is a
religious legacy that has pasted on from this ancient tradition.
symbol was adopted to currently represent the most mysterious of all
mysteries, the Jewish God - the birth creator.
The two triangles pointing up and down often symbolizes man as God.
The triangle pointing up refers to the male and the triangle pointing
down refers to the female. The two
triangles sometimes are referred to as fire and water by alchemy. It
is often associated with the fabled Philosopher’s Stone itself, which
is said to be made of fire and water.
The Star of David or Hexagram is also used in many cults and
religious rituals associated with both magic and sorcery. This symbol
is commonly used in the invoking or banishing of demons, spirits, or
angels to aid or do the bidding of the practitioner of the occult
arts. Most books of magic and the occult arts give a common
explanation for the use of the hexagram shape as a symbol for
receiving guidance from the spirit world.
To the magician, the Hexagram is the “Sign of the Macrocosm.”
six angles represent the six days of Creation, with the center
representing the seventh day, or period of rest. Each re-entering
angle of a Hexagram is a ray radiating from the divine. In occult
rituals it is traced with the single point uppermost in the direction
of the east, the west, or the north, or the
south. It is the sealing of the “Astral Image of Nature” under the Sephiroth. It is a symbol frequently attributable to

There is one Hexagram found in the street lines of Washington, D.C.
It is found east of the Capital Building, with the Capital Building
situated at the base or top of the Star.
THE SYMBOL OF INVOLUTION AND EVOLUTION
In esoteric and eastern religious theology, the crossing of two
triangles also represents the
“Universal Life Principle.” One triangle pointing down represents
the involution of spirit,
born into the flesh of man. The triangle pointing up represents the
evolution of man back to spirit.
The following diagram represents
this two fold principle. This is a universal principle
that is evident in all the great religious books like the various
versions of the Bible, the Zohar, and the Koran. It is the foundation on which the theologies
of reincarnation, karma,
and Christian spiritual rebirth are established.
The Star of David,
as well as any crossing over
of two triangles, can be interpreted to represent this “Universal

THE THREE PENTAGRAMS
The pentagram, like the hexagram, is an early religious and occult
symbol. It has also been associated with Creator principle.
Traditionally a pentagram pointing upside down is called
the sign of Satan, Baphomet, or Asmodeus - the ram’s head or the
The sign in an
upward position represents the “Universal Man.”
SIGN OF THE DEVIL
THE UNIVERSAL MAN
The pentagram is used in the rituals of the occult arts, such as the
Golden Dawn, the Rosicrucians, and Wica for the banishing and invoking of spirits.
According to the book The Key of Solomon, the archangel Gabriel is
invoked on a Thursday before daybreak,
is great and he can do much good in which he will instruct you.”
A pentagram can be traced in two different ways. First, by moving
from every second point,
thus producing a pentagon. Second, by moving from every third point,
drawing out the pentagram. The pentagram is associated to the Fifth Sephirah, Geburah.
When the pentagram has a single point pointing upwards, it
represents the “Sign of the
Microcosm.” This is a good symbol, representing the universal man
with his arms and legs extended while adoring his Creator. It is
symbolic of the control of the spirit over matter.
With the single point pointing downwards, it is an evil symbol. It
is associated with the head of a goat and means the control of reason
over the blind forces of matter.
THE RITUAL OF THE PENTAGRAM
The ritual using the pentagram symbol involves a form of prayer.
Invoking of spirits occurs in the morning and banishing of spirits
occurs in the evening. The pentagram ritual aids in ridding impure
A magician normally faces the east and produces a mental
image of what he is trying to accomplish. Depending on the type of
ritual being performed, the magician will sometimes walk on a
pentagram path, or trace out the star on the ground from one of the
five starting points. Each starting point is associated with a
certain spirit being called upon for guidance.
There are three pentagram stars found in the Washington Street Line

and easier to see, is the Minor Pentagram next to the White House.
The third is the Giant Pentagram that extends out
from the Washington Monument.
The Major Pentagram and Giant
Pentagram are pointing west, with the Minor Pentagram pointing south.
All three pentagrams would be considered to be pointing downward and
might be symbols associated with evil.
As we will see, the
directional layout of these pentagram shapes holds some other
THE GIANT PENTAGRAM
A CASE FOR SATAN WORSHIP
OR SOMETHING ELSE?
Satan worship is often confused with witchcraft. Most witches,
however, are quick to point out the distinction between the two.
Witchcraft pre-dates Christianity while Satanism is subsequent to
Satanism represents an overthrow of the Christian
deity in favor of his adversary. Satanist along with other occults
and secret societies share a number of symbols and rituals, but
several are unique and distinctive to Satanism. The best known is
the inverted pentagram. The Horned God in the form of the goat
of Mendes is often depicted, with the pentagram mixed with the goat,
or stamped upon the goat’s forehead.
The Major Pentagram (or Capital Pentagram) sits above the symbol of
Aries. Aries is the symbol of the Ram. The Giant Pentagram has the
sign for Aries situated within its center.
Drawings, diagrams, and
pictures of the homed ram and homed goat are often mistaken as one
and the same.
THE SQUARE AND COMPASS
The easiest to see and possibly the most pronounced symbol of the
Washington Complex is the Freemasonry symbol of the Square and
Compass. Like the Star of David, it is really only the crossing of
two triangles. It definitely symbolizes a Masonic meaning, possibly
similar to the Universal Life Principal.
Those first seeing this symbol will naturally say that it was
established to honor the many Masons who fought in the Revolutionary
That sounds well, until you discover:
1. It has never been mentioned in any tourist guidebooks on
Washington, D.C. For that matter, none of the Washington lines or
symbols are mentioned in any tourist guidebooks-until now.
2. To pay homage to anything as a memorial, you have to see it. Yet,
no one can see this symbol unless he can fly or stands a top the
Washington Monument. This may be why the Washington Monument is a
building instead of a solid obelisk structure.
3. The square of this symbol did not take shape with the onset of
the building of the Nation’s Capital. Early city plans of Washington
do not show the detailed layout. So this symbol has been added to
the Washington Complex, over the past two hundred years. It appears
to have taken shape in the mid-1800s.
The amazing thing about the Square and Compass is the detail of the
compass shape. It has
handles, moving joints, and even a compass spring that can be seen
in the layout based around
the Capital Building.
The layout of a compass shape in a city’s streets is not unique to
Washington, D.C. The Piazza del Popolo in Rome and the Vatican both
have the shape of a bow compass laid out in the streets with an
obelisk at its center.
The Vatican compass shape is closed, opposite
of the opened Washington compass shape. There may be some hidden
symbolism behind the closed compass since the Vatican, as part of
its doctrine, is opposed to Freemasonry. Popes Clement and
excommunicated many Masons from the Catholic faith.
Pope Leo XII in
his famous anti-mason letter, Hummanum Genus, expressed the church’s
opinion of Masons at that time.
“The human race, after its most miserable defection, through the
wilds of the devil, from its Creator, God, the giver of celestial
gifts, has divided into two different and opposing factions; of
which one fights ever truth and virtue, and the other for opposites.
One is the Kingdom of God on earth, the true church of Jesus
Christ,......... the other is the Kingdom of Satan .......... but at
this time those who support the worst faction seem all to be
conspiring and striving most vigorously, led and aided by what is
called Freemasonry, a society of men most widely spread and firmly
Albert Pike, a Scottish Rite Mason in the United States replayed to
the letter as follows:
“There has never been in this country any opposition on the part of
Freemasonry to Catholicism
as a religion. ...We have not even felt indignation when educational
establishments of Catholicism
have made priest of our sons and nuns of our daughters. With 100,000
members of the Catholic
faith in its lodges in various Latin countries of the world, the
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite
could have no dislike to Catholicism as a religion.
It has only
denied its right to compel men to
profess a belief in what it might, in its pretended infallibility,
decree to be religious truth, and to

The Freemason Square and Compass can be seen in the mathematical
computations of the
Great Pyramid in the notes of the Englishman, David Davidson.
Davidson preformed some of
the first mathematics associated with the Great Pyramid.
VATICAN AND POPOLO COMPASSES
The Vatican compass shape is closed. The Popolo compass shape, like
D.C. compass, is open. Unlike the Washington, D.C. compass shape,
the Popolo compass
is not laid out on any north-south, east-west axis.
But, the Vatican
compass is laid out on such an axis with the obelisk in the center of
the Vatican Piazza. The Vatican compass in many respects is a direct
opposite of the Washington compass. The Vatican compass is closed and
points to the east, with an obelisk situated in the compass shape.
compass is opened to the west, with the obelisk situated outside the
There are other shapes associated with the Vatican bow compass. To
the side of the compass, is the shape of a builders level. Most
carpenters will notice the water bubble level at the center. It
appears interconnected to another compass or gage behind the bow
shape which appears to have thumb wheel gages. This other compass
shape is based around the shape of St. Peter’s Basilica and may
represent a set of calipers.
Next to the builder’s level is an angled
structure that looks like a builder’s square or angle gage. Of
course, the whole
layout looks a lot like the shape of a single instrument that can
reference a compass or a set
of calipers off of an angle from a fixed level position. (See ahead
JEFFERSON CLUE, THE SHIELD OF CHRIST, and THE VATICAN CONNECTION.)
The Popolo compass shape, like many of the Washington streets, is
part of a gigantic pentagram laid out in the streets Rome. The Giant
Pentagram of Rome can be established from the location of obelisk,
towers, and key buildings in the city.
It is altogether possible that the “Plan” for Washington, D.C. was
developed around the
city plan for Rome. It is well know that Jefferson, Washington, and
L’Enfant developed many of their ideas from Roman architecture.
the compass shape and pentagram stars of Rome are not well know
features, even to historians of Roman architecture and culture. This
book you are reading may hold the first publicly written references
to these Roman street symbols.
In essence, they are part of a common
mystery associated with the street layout of Rome, the Vatican, and
THE GIANT PENTAGRAM OF ROME
THE SYMBOL OF BIRTH AND REBIRTH
Again, we happen upon two elongated triangles crossing over each
other. This is definitely an ancient symbol of birth which is
associated with various buildings established at key locations
around these two triangles.
In grade school, all Americans are taught that George Washington was
the “Father of our Country.” Most of us take this as a homage to our
First President of the United States. But,
it is strange that we call George Washington the “Father of our
Country” when other men
may have had more to do with its establishment. For instance, Thomas
Jefferson drafted our
Declaration of Independence, so the title “Father of our Country”
may better fit Jefferson.
At the end of one of the two equally sized triangles, we have the
Monument. This stone and masonry obelisk towers 555 feet into the
air. The comer stone
was laid with Masonic ceremonies by the Grand Lodge of the District
of Columbia on July 4,1848. At the other end of the opposing
triangle, are two curved lines folding in on each other and meeting
at a street that circles the Capital Building.
Here the symbolic street layout is using the Washington Monument as
a “phallic symbol.” The lines near the Capital are representing the
fallopian tubes of a woman, with the Capital centered in the womb -
the place of birth.
Remember the serpent earth mound in Adams Country, Ohio. It is
possible that while
George Washington was surveying in Ohio he made visits to this earth
works and discovered how it might relate to a fertility ritual, later
expressing this in the design of the Capital City?
There are a many similarities. Seven streets divide this Birth
Symbol of Washington, D.C. The serpent mount has seven coils in its design. Both may symbolize
fertility and both have the sign of Aries placed within their design.
Of course, both could be two separate cultures
symbolizing the same thing - the Universal Life Principle.
THE ANGEL NAMES
Discussed earlier is the possibility that the hexagram and pentagram
shapes, which make up the streets of Washington, could be used in
rituals for invoking or banishing spirits.
There are two key things
that establish this as their function.
1.They are pointing on an east-west and north-south axis. When these
symbols are used in occult and religious rituals, they are laid out
on one of these same directional axis depending on the ritual being
2.The presents of the following associated symbols next to these
pentagram star shapes adds meaning to there intent.
symbols represent the names of the entity being banished or invoked
in carrying out a specific ritual.
1. The symbol for Mercury, quicksilver, the planetary spirit Ophiel
or Taphthartharath, or angel Raphael.
2. The symbol for Jupiter, the planetary spirit Bethor or Kedemel,
and the angel Hanael
3. The symbol for Saturn, the planetary spirit Arathor or Hismael,
and the angel Sachiel
4. The symbol for Aries, the spirit Asmodeus, and angel
5. The symbol for Taurus, the kerub of the earth, the sun
THE ZODIAC AGES
The symbols associated with
the names of angels are also associated
with the ages of the Zodiac.
Many ancient religious text refer to
the two great ages of Taurus the bull and Aries the ram. About every
2000 years, the due east position in the northern hemisphere will
locate in the night sky a certain constellation. This constellation
has changed from Taurus, to Aries, to the current constellation
Pisces because of the rotation of the earth’s axis on a 23.5 degree
According to Jewish and Christian scriptures,
Moses ushered in
the age or Aries and Jesus the age of Pisces.
The celestial equator
of the earth remains constant and Aries is always in the east in
relation to the earth’s position on the celestial equator on the day
of the spring equinox.
“Then I saw that a white bull was born with large horns, and all the
beast of the field and all the birds of the air feared him and
entreated him constantly. I watched until all generations were
transformed into white bulls. The first among them became a lamb,
and that lamb became a great animal and had great black horns on its
head. The Load of the sheep rejoiced over it and over all the oxen.
I slept among them and woke and saw everything.”
From the Book of
Enoch on Enoch’s vision of the coming Messiah.
It is possible that a message has been presented in two paintings of
the early nineteenth century that indicates the ellipse of the White
House is really representing the sign of Taurus?
One landscape by
William MacLeod in 1844 shows two horned bulls looking northeast
toward the White House of Washington, D.C. Another drawing by Kollner in 1839 shows two bulls running in a field towards a
northern direction and is titled “Northeastern Washington D.C.”
use of two bulls in the pictures is the real give away to the hidden
message. There are two stars making up the horns of the bull in the
constellation Taurus. Also there are two parallel streets branching
out from the White House that point to the position of Taurus on the
celestial equator. Both pictures have a horse’s ass depicted as the
constellation of the Northern Ass.
Traditionally fertility religions honor the horned animal, such as
the homed bull. Even today the rhinoceros is in danger of
extinction, because many people around the world believe its tusk
when crushed and eaten will increase potency in men. The broken horn
is often referred to as the horn of plenty or good fortune.
Sighting down New York Avenue or Rhode Island Avenue towards the
northeast from the White House locates the constellation of Taurus
the bull in the night sky on the celestial equator, when due east
points to Aries.
New York Avenue runs from the White House to the
center of the National School for Boys.
The sign of Aries or the ram is found near the Capital Building.
When you face due east
towards the Capital Building, on the day of spring equinox, you will
find the constellation Aries in the night sky in alignment with the
earth’s position with the celestial equator.
THE SEPHIROTIC TREE - Ancient Jewish Magic
Modern day magic is derived from two ancient magical groups which
developed in the middle ages - the Knights Templar and the
The Knights Templar were formed in 1118 by Hugh de Payens and
Geoffrey de Saint-Omer.
It was sanctioned to protect Jerusalem for Christian pilgrims by the
King of Jerusalem and by the Pope. The Order later developed into a
magical group with a Gnostic-like theology. The
group gained knowledge on the ‘mysteries of true Christianity’ from
the Johannites, a magical
sect existing in Jerusalem at this time.
The Johannites believed
that John the Baptist was the
true Messiah. It is believed that the Templars worshiped his severed
head. But, the Templar shave been linked to the possession of the
Turin shroud, which when folded appears like ahead. In either case,
each of these two heads might be considered to be the head of the
Two hundred years after its founding, the King
of France disbanded the
wealthy and powerful organization almost overnight. Jacques de Molay, the leader, was
burned at the stake based on charges of black magic.
The philosophy of the Kabbalah is attributed to older Hebrew
sources. Kabbalists believe the world and nature can be grasped
through the understanding of numbers and letters. Their
job is to discover the meaning in the numbers and letters from the
ancient written records of man.
“Ten” is their basic number of the
universe. By using the ten numbers (the sephirot),
all the working principles of life can be organized and pictured in
the form of a Sephirotic tree. This Sephirot tree emanations God, who
is a top of the tree. It is the aim of the
magician to climb this tree, using magic, to find the divine God
Each of the ten Sephirots has a name and quality attributed to it.
1. Kether - being or existence
2. Chochmah -wisdom
3. Binah - intelligence or understanding
4. Chesed - mercy or love
5. Geburah - strength or security
6. Tiphareth - beauty
7. Netzach -firmness
8. Hod - glory
9. Yesod - foundation
10. Malkuth - kingdom.
An invisible Sephirot is hidden behind
Chochmah and Binah. It is
called the Daathknowledge which is of a sexual kind, spoken of
Daath is often added to the Sephirot
tree of the Kabbalists which practice sex magic.
The Sephirot Tree - The Tree of Life - Jacob’s Ladder
Tarot cards are read based on the layout of the
Sephirot. The three
rows based around ten cards, with the turn of the card revealing the
climb up or down the ladder of life.
The Sephirot Tree is often known in the occult arts as the
representation of the Tree of Life
and the Tree of Knowledge as spoken of in the Genesis. It is strange
that an American fable
apparently written by Parson Weems, also the writer of George
Washington’s first biography,
speaks of another well-known tree.
“Presently George and his made their appearance. George, said his
father, do you know who killed that beautiful little cherry-tree
yonder in the garden? This was a tough question; and George
staggered under it for a moment; but quickly recovered himself; and
looking at his father, with the sweet face of youth brightened with
the inexpressible charm of all-conquering truth, he bravely cried
out, ‘I can’t tell a lie, Pa; you know I can’t tell a lie. I did cut
it with my hatchet.’ -‘Run to my arms, you dearest boy, cried his
father in transports, run to my arms; glad am I, George, that you
killed my tree; for you have paid me for it a thousand fold. Such an
act of heroism in my son is more worth than a thousand trees, though
blossomed with silver, and their fruits of purest gold.”
In reading this story told by Weems, also a
Mason, one cannot help
notice the similarities to the tree in the Garden of Eden; with
Washington acting as the Adam of our new nation, this time being
praised by his Father.
As the sun moves from east to west each day, the shadow of the
cuts across the Sephirot shape laid out in the streets. Could Weem’s
fable really be a cryptic
message about the Washington Monument and its association to the
street lines? The Kabbalist believes in the cryptic use of letters and numbers. The
streets of Washington, D.C.
running north-south and east-west make up a lattice network of
numbers and letters.
shadow of the Washington Monument point to specific number and
letter locations found in the streets of Washington, D.C.? Is there a
cryptic message left behind by Thomas Jefferson,
the father of modem Cryptography? His wheel cipher which he invented
in the eighteenth century is still used today. Spencer Lewis, of the AROC Rosicrucian Order, found among
Jefferson’s papers a code many through Jefferson had invented. It
was recognized by Lewis to be a possible Rosicrucian code similar to
ancient Rosicrucian secret manuscripts.
The Sephirot design has taken shape through several design changes
to the original “Plan.”
The Sephirot is traditionally a ladder design that can be expanded
upon as one develops his ability to obtaining his higher self. Many
ancient religions speak of the ladder to heaven, or
Jacob’s ladder as mentioned in the Bible. A chemist looking at a
sephirot design might find
its appearance similar to a chemical chain. The biologist might
relate this design to the DNA
ladder design that creates all living things. Both DNA and chemical
chains are expressed in terms of coded letters and numbers.
someone in the 1791 also relate the Sephirot to another science based
around the streets of Washington, D.C.?
The Washington Sephirot Tree
THE SKULL AND CROSS BONES
This symbol may be a bit more illusive to the human eye. Hauntingly
it is staring back at you as you look at the maps of Washington,
D.C. The skull and cross bones are to be expected since it is a
symbol of Freemasonry and the Knights Templars.
We have already discussed the Knights Templars’ association with
magic and the story about the Knights Templars having been linked to
a mysterious head.
Five possible theories exist on what this head
1. It is the pentagram shape of Baphomet, the goat headed demon.
2. It is the head of Christ as seen from a folded Shroud of Turin.
3. It is the Skull and Cross Bones symbol.
4. It is the head of the universe - the Universal Creator.
5. It is Asmodeus the guardian of the Treasure of Solomon.
The head worshiped by the Knights Templars may be the commonly known
Skull and Cross
Bones symbol, which is associated with pirates and buried
treasure. The skull is naturally known as the place of the mind, the highest
order of thought.
Esoteric philosophy is centered around three states of being; the
body (physical), the mind (reasoning), and the sprint (the soul). The
cross bones represent the physical aspect of man and the skull
represents the mind. Together they represent the crossing over to
the higher self of the mind and reasoning. The symbol of the Skull
and Cross Bones that is now considered to have a negative connotation
of death in our society, originally meant the positive crossing
over to a higher level of consciousness towards the sprint.
crucifixion of Jesus is
associated with the same tradition, with his death on the cross at
the place of the skull,
Golgotha - the crossing over of the spirit at death. The location of
the Capital Building,
housing the best minds of reason in our country, is situated at that
crossing. As we will see,
the head worshipped by the Templars and the cross bone lines of
Washington, D.C. could be

SKULL AND CROSS BONES IN WASHINGTON, D.C. STREET LAYOUT
The location of the National Cemetery at Arlington might be
considered part of the
Washington Line Complex.
At first, this great cemetery appears to
hold no relevance to the
Washington lines, though one of its original principle owners was
George Washington. By comparing the following map of Washington to
the Freemason pictures, similar symbols can be found in the same
relative location to each other. The Arlington National Cemetery is
the same relative location as the Freemason’s casket symbol. So, the
may represent the same meaning as the casket in this drawing.
The tarot card layout has a “discarded card” that is in the same
location as Arlington in
relation to the Shepirot tree layout. The Curtis-Lee House, built by
the son of George Washington, is aligned to a line of sight that
passes through the sign of Taurus in front of the
White House. This may indicate the discard of the age of Taurus. The
entrance of Arlington
in front of the Curtis-Lee House is also aligned to New Hampshire
Avenue that sights the
constellation of Gemini, which precedes Taurus as a discarded age.
It is well-known that the
American Order of the Knights Templars holds their annual sunrise
services at the
amphitheater on the cemetery grounds.

In the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a detailed account of the
importance of the secret society
of Prieure de Sion is reviewed. This society is still in existence
today and it is an international
The Prieure de Sion could be responsible for the development
of the Order of Knights
Templars and many of its possible offshoot Orders such as
Freemasonry and the Rosicrucians.
There is repeated references to something called the “Rock of Sion”
by many of these secret Orders. The fabled “Philosophers Stone”
associated with Alchemy and this “Rock of Sion” might be one and the
same. Many Christians consider the “Rock of Sion” to represent Simon
Peter, based on what Jesus said in the Bible, “-upon this rock I
will build my church.”
In 1925, a stone slab was discovered near
France. The stone had
carved upon it a strange triangle shaped spear point and a cryptic
message. The stone’s source
is attributed to the secret Order of Prieure de Sion. The motif on
this stone looks strikingly similar to parts of the pentagrams in the
Washington Line Complex.
The drawing on the stone near Rennes-le-Chateau
is better known by the Orthodox Christian Church as the
“Shield of Christ” or “Shield of the Trinity.” The following
tapestry shows its association with Christianity, in which it
protects the crucified Christ from demons. The motif on the
stone slab has become known as the “Sign of the Pieure de Sion” or
the “Sign of the Rock of

with Aries is the Aquamarine, better known as the bloodstone.
AN ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY
Discussed earlier were the various ancient sites aligned to the sun
and the moon positions. It appears that the street lines of
Washington, D.C. and these ancient sites have the same thing in
common. This should be expected since both Franklin and Jefferson
were noted for their knowledge in astrology and astronomy.
Franklin’s publication on the subject, Poor Richard’s Almanac, made
him a fortune and was one of the most popular books of the period.
Viewing from the top of the Washington Monument to the southeast
Avenue, a line of sight for the winter solstice can be established.
Viewing down Indiana
Avenue from the Washington Monument produces an almost true line of
sight for the
summer solstice. I say almost true, because the Washington Monument
was not built on the
correct location described in the L’Enfant “Plan.”
It was built 400
feet southeast of the pile of marker stones laid down by Jefferson.
solstice positions can also be observed from the
Capital Building sighting down Pennsylvania Avenue or Maryland Lane
and Massachusetts Avenue or North Carolina Avenue from Lincoln
Like Stonehenge, Mystery Hill, Sariezetusa, and the Great Pyramids
of Giza, the streets of Washington, D.C. creates a gigantic
astronomical, earth, solar, and lunar clock.
In simple astronomical and navigational calculations, the earth is
established at the center of celestial sphere, which moves along the
line of the earth’s equator while the apparent path of the sun, the
ecliptic, is at an angle to it.
The equinoxes are two points at
which the ecliptic intersects with the celestial equator, and are
defined as 0 degree in the constellation Aries in spring and 0
degree in the constellation of Libra in autumn.
A line drawn due east through the Capital Building, crossing the
Aries symbol, will point to the constellation Aries 0 degrees on the
celestial equator in relation to the earth’s position on the date of
the spring equinox. Because of a tilt in the earth, the
constellation Pisces is currently viewed in the night sky, though
Aries is always due east from the earth’s position.
Our country observes four national holidays associated near the
dates of the celestial solstices
THE DAILY CLOCK AND SEXTANT
The Washington Monument acts like a giant sundial and its shadow
offers accurate timekeeping on the days of the equinox. On the day
of the summer solstice, it will cast its
smallest shadow at noon. The maximum distance cast out from the
monument by that
shadow can be used to calculate the number of degrees Washington,
D.C. is away from the
Tropic of Cancer.
This angle and distance when applied to the 360
degrees in a circle, can be
used to calculate the circumference of the earth.
It appears Jefferson left behind a clue in the name of his famous
home for finding the city used as the model for the astronomical
meaning behind the street layout of Washington.
information concerning the winter solstice in Washington, D.C.
reveals a not well-known
astronomical observation that can also be seen from the Vatican in
The basic interpretation derived from the two opposite compass
symbols found in
Washington, D. C. and the Vatican is also opposite. One compass
faces the east and the other faces the west. The Vatican is closed to
the rising sun on the day of winter solstice.
The Washington compass is open to the rising sun of the winter
solstice when viewed from the White House, but the legs are turned
away from the rising sun. (see
The summer solstice triangulation point can be found in Rome by
sighting down Via
Fontille to S. Museo Borghese from the center of the Piazza del
Risorgimento (moment of rise). Sighting out across the city to the
twin towers of S. Giovanni from the Piazza Risorgimento locates the winter solstice triangulation point.
Sighting down Via Della Lungara from The Piazza Del Risorgimento to Musa Torlonia, establishes
an angle line that is parallel to the line of sight for the rising
moon position when viewed from the obelisk at the
The Plaza Risorgimento establishes the two solstice points and the
angle for the rising moon position. The observation of the rising sun
on the day of the winter or summer solstice can be viewed from the
Vatican. The result of the triangulation of points for observation,
produces a full Shield of Christ branching out from the Vatican.
Note that the line of sight from the Vatican for viewing the winter
solstice passes through the middle of the ancient Roman Colosseum and
the ruins of the ancient Roman Forum.
This line passes on a street in the middle of the Forum called the
Sacred Way. Situated in the design of the Piazza of S. Trinita dei Monti Church
is the sign of Taurus
based around a stairway called the Spanish Steps. Spain has always
been noted for bull fights
and related festivals.
Via Fontanella, leading to the Spanish Steps,
is at an exact angle from due east as the Taurus sight lines of

In designing the city plan for Washington, D.C., Thomas Jefferson
might have left behind clues to a secret in the city of Rome.
discussed earlier, the Vatican has a gigantic bow compass shape
pointing due east. It is pointing not only to the celestial
constellation of Aries, but to an obelisk in the center of the
Piazza Terac Esedra. Next to this Piazza is S. M. degli Angeli, or
Place of Many Angles. This obelisk is about one and half miles due
north of the South Stefano Rotunda. The South Stefano Rotunda is in
the part of Rome called Montecitorio. Jefferson’s home is named
Montecello was designed after this place in Rome, not
after the Pantheon. A line drawn from the obelisk of the Piazza S
Pietro of the Vatican through the center of the South Stefano
Rotunda will establish the Golden Triangle or traditional winter
solstice triangle. This is also the shape of the constellation
Triangulum, found to the right Taurus and behind Aries in the night
Montecello might even be a reference for one of the stars in
the constellation Triangulum.
THE PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES
Built info the earth’s rotation is a tilt of 23.5 degrees as it
revolves around the sun. This tilt causes the location of the north
star to change its position a little each year. Our current north
star is now part of the Ursa Minor or the Little Dipper
constellation. About 6000
years ago, it was a part of the constellation Draconis.
lines branching out to the
north and south from the White House are celestial marker
lines for 2,166 years of this 26,000 year cycle of the change in
location of the North Star. This tilt
also causes the constellation found due east on the day of the
equinox to change locations every 2,166 years.
This change is
referred to as the “precession of the equinoxes.”
ADDITIONAL ASTRONOMICAL DATA
THE 56 YEAR ECLIPSE CYCLE COMPUTER
In 1964 Gerald S. Hawkins wrote an article for Nature, titled
“Stonehenge: A Neolithic Computer” The basic premise of his research
was that the two stones uses for sighting the
maximum positions of the eighteen year cycle of the moonrise and the
heel stone at
Stonehenge could be used to calculate the exact day in which an
eclipse of the sun or the
eclipse of the moon would occur. Using computer dating from the
Observatory, Hawkins discovered that whenever you have the moon
rising at any of the three
previously mentioned Stonehenge marker stones, an eclipse of the sun
or moon will occur
somewhere on the earth on that date. This produces a 56-year sun and
moon eclipse cycle.
Hawkins states in his book Stonehenge Decoded, that astronomers
recently rediscovered this
eclipse calculator from Stonehenge. Well, it appears George
Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Charles L’Enfant understood this calculator, as well as someone
in Rome and Jerusalem.
It occurred to this researcher that the same observance would apply
to the two maximum moon sight lines in Washington, D.C. But what
sight line represents the sight line produced by the heel stone at
Stonehenge? The answer was obvious, the non-important line
(South Carolina Avenue) southeast of the Capital. It sights a hill in
the distance. When this hill and
other geographic features of eastern Washington, D.C. arc viewed
from Lincoln Square, they
produce natural geographic points of reference, similar to the two
maximum moonrise stones
and heel stone at Stonehenge.
Like Stonehenge, whenever the moon is
seen to rise above any of these geographic landmarks, an eclipse of
the sun or the moon will occur somewhere on
the earth that same day. This crude eclipse cycle clock is accurate
for about 300 years. So
this phenomena should be visible until the year 2091 in Washington,
D.C. After that date
the moon will rise one year early every 300 years. The same eclipse
cycle can be observed in Rome and Jerusalem with a 2 to 8 year error.
This scientific data adds to the mystic and occult nature of the
Washington Line Complex, since a magician would appear most powerful
if he could predict the date in which the sun or the moon would
appear to vanish. The invoking and banishing rituals of magic are
supposedly best carried out at the time of an eclipse.
THE NORTH STAR CALCULATOR
The angle used to establish the White House Spear Point is open
toward the north. This
angle measures 47 degrees, twice 23.5 degrees. As previously
discussed in Chapter Three (see
page 61), the pole star will appear to change positions because of
the 23.5 degree tilt in the earth's axis. This 47 degree angle
reflects this tilt in the earth and maximum positions of the
north star. The pole star position will appear to travel as the
earth moves a full revolution on the 23.5 degree tilt in a 26,000
year period. Already the north star position has started to
move toward Dupont Circle reflecting a 200 year change in position.
The full cycle will occur when the polar star position has traveled
from 16th Street to Dupont Circle back to Logan Circle and then back
to 16th Street. Note that Logan Circle is part of Rhode Island
that points to the constellation Taurus. In the year 4000 B.C. the
sky of the southern horizon on the day of the vernal equinox
displayed the earth’s equator and the celestial ecliptic
intersecting the earth’s north-south polar axis at a point between
the horns of the constellation
Taurus. When the polar star is aligned to Logan Circle, as viewed
from the White House,
this same astronomical conjunction will occur.
THE MISSING STREETS J AND B
In Freemasonry the letters J and B represent the two great mystical
pillars Jachin and Boaz
created by King Solomon. These pillars are associated with the two
astronomical globes - the earth globe and the celestial globe. It appears the
letter J was never used to name a street in Washington, D.C. North
and South B Streets were renamed to Constitution and
Independence. Thus there are no J and B Streets in Washington, D.C.
But, J and B are
represented by all the other astronomical sight lines that make up
the Washington Line
The angle generated by New Jersey Avenue intersecting Delaware
Avenue at the Capital Building is the angle needed to find the
beginning and end of the constellation Aries, due east
on the celestial equator on the spring equinox. It is also the angle
between the moon’s orbit
once a month and the sun’s orbit once a year along the ecliptic as
viewed from earth. Where
these two orbits intersect you have a position for an eclipse of the
sun or moon.
intersection points revolve along the ecliptic once every nineteen
years. The measurement of
the angle between these two streets is thirty-three degrees, the
highest rank in Freemasonry.
The moon will rise thirty-three times when sighting down Kentucky
Avenue over a nineteen
THE SEASONAL SOLAR CLOCK
As stated earlier, the winter and summer solstice positions can be
found through observations from the Washington Monument, the Capital
Building, or Lincoln Square. The
Capital Building as the center of such an astronomical observation
is most appropriate, since
there are 365 steps at the entrance to the Capital, one for each day
of the year.
Strangely enough, clues were left behind by George Washington is his
family portrait called "The Washington Family” by Edward Savage. This
portrait is on exhibit at the Smithsonian
Museum of Art. At first glance, the portrait appears to only show
Washington, his wife,
grandson, and granddaughter. But, the center piece of the portrait
is a map of Washington,
D.C. Martha is pointing with a strangle looking pointer to the
location of the Capital
Building on the map.
To the left of the family, is a terrestrial or
a military globe with a
compass pointing north found at the base of the globe. Celestial
maker lines are placed on the globe with a circular shape
representing the traditional moon position. Washington's grandson has
a bow compass in his right hand pointing east. Washington’s sword is
pointing east. A terrestrial globe was owned by George Washington. It
is now displayed in his library
at Mt. Vernon.
The secret message revealed within the portrait is that a celestial
observation can be seen by looking east from the Capital Building.
The bow compass with its 60 degree angle indicates
the traditional angle for the positions of the solstices. The
pointer used by Martha indicates
another observation that may be at a certain angle in the sky. This
might be an eclipse, a
bright star, or a planetary alignment.
These sight lines for the moon and sun positions may have already
existed before the
founding of Washington, D.C. Tennessee Avenue, Maryland Avenue,
Kentucky Avenue, and South Carolina Avenue are all aligned to hills
in the distance, as they branch out from the Capital hill and Lincoln
Park. These hills in the distance are natural landmarks that can be
used for establishing points of reference. So these astronomical
sightlines appear to pre-date the written “Plan” of Washington, D.C.
This pre-existing astronomical observation sight may be attributed to
Washington and his comrades, or to a preexisting American Indian
observatory known by George Washington. There is no evidence in either
case. But, the geographic landmarks of this area appears to have
influenced the preferred location of the Nation’s Capital for
astronomical observations. Perhaps, these geographic
landmarks are what captured De Graffenried’s attention to this
De Graffenreied or
Washington might have been looking for a location with similar
geographic features of the
hills surrounding Rome.
THE LUNAR CLOCK
Like the ancient megaliths of old, some of the streets of
Washington, D.C. are laid out according to the phases of the moon.
Similar to the changing positions of the rising sun on
the horizon throughout the year, the rising moon also changes its
location on the horizon.
The moonrise positions vary in a more complicated way between
extreme northern and
southern points, completing a cycle about every eighteen years. The following illustrates the maximum and minimum swing of the
Stonehenge. Lincoln Square offers a line of sight of the maximum
moonrise positions by sighting down Kentucky Avenue and Tennessee
Based on the Washington Complex’s previous association with
maybe the founding fathers took the following quote from the Bible
“Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the
world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have
the light of life.”
THE VENUS CIRCLE
Studying the eastern night sky over a period of time reveals an
interesting occurrence in the
cycle of the planet Venus. The path of the planet will appear as a
circle with its ends representing the locations of Venus as the
Morning star and Venus as the Evening star.
Venus is called the two headed star, sometimes presented in ancient
folklore by the two headed
serpent or the two headed eagle. The Bible refers to the evening
star as Lucifer and the morning star as the Christ - the two headed
principal of good and evil, light and dark, and
birth and death.
As might be expected, a similar shape encircles the
