Emersion: A Blog from Occursion Media on Somewhat Interesting Hidden and Cryptic Astrological Histories

A pentacle approximates the shape of the Washington Monument’s pyramidion

In Part I we learned that the Washington Monument encodes historic astrological alignments via the shape of its design and its symbolic moment of dedication. It does so through the pyramidion at the top which is based on the Golden Mean value, and is shaped to parallel the Sun’s culminating altitude on certain dates – dates that also feature solar conjunctions to prominent fixed stars that were equidistant to the summer solstice point of 0° Cancer in the year 1800.

Remembering that the WM slope is 72°38’37”, we can create this table of values:

1800 AD values – Sun @ 180° azimuth @ DC Sun altitude Sun ecliptic * ecliptic
Sun -0- Aldebaran – May 28 72°36′ 07°02′ GEM 06°59′ GEM
Sun -0- Summer Solstice – June 21 74°33′ 29°58′ GEM 00°00′ CAN
Sun -0- Procyon – July 15 72°37′
