Although Roosevelt would be the one to set in motion the push to place the Great Seal of the United States on the US $1 bill, Wallace claimed it was he who first brought the seal’s oracular significance to Roosevelt in the 1930s, believing the symbolism of the emblems carried inference to Roosevelt’s New Deal, and, more important, a Masonic prophecy toward a New World Order. Wallace describes the meeting he had with Roosevelt:

Roosevelt as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal was first struck with the representation of the All-Seeing Eye—a Masonic representation of the Great Architect of the Universe. Next, he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 but that it would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt, like myself, was a 32nd-degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill…and took the matter up with the Secretary of the Treasury [also a Freemason].… He brought it up in a Cabinet meeting and asked James Farley [Postmaster General and a Roman Catholic] if he thought the Catholics would have any objection to the “all-seeing Eye,” which he as a Mason looked on as a Masonic symbol of Deity. Farley said, “No, there would be no objection.”[i]

Regardless of who between Roosevelt and Wallace first perceived the seal’s Masonic prophetic significance, surviving records clearly show it was Roosevelt (and in his own handwriting no less) who instructed that the obverse side of the seal be placed on the right back of the dollar and the reverse side of the seal with the pyramid and all-seeing eye be put on the left so that it would be the first thing a person saw when reading the back of the dollar from left to right. Thus, most Americans “were left with the impression that the mysterious pyramid and its heralding of a ‘new order’ were the foremost symbols of the American republic,” notes Mitch Horowitz in Occult America.[ii]

Wallace and Roosevelt viewed the all-seeing eye above the unfinished pyramid as pointing to the return (or reincarnation) of the coming savior referenced in the mottoes Annuit Coeptis and Novus Ordo Seclorum, whose arrival would cap the pyramid and launch the New World Order. The all-seeing eye on the Great Seal is fashioned after the Eye of Horus, the offspring of Osiris (or Osiris resurrected), as both men surely understood. Aliester Crowley, 33rd-Degree Freemason (the “wickedest man on earth”) and a Roerich occult contemporary, often spoke of this as the “New Age of Horus” and the breaking dawn of the rebirth of Osiris. That mystics and Freemasons simultaneously used such identical language is telling, given what I pointed out earlier in this series—that the Great Seal’s mottoes and symbolism relate to both Osiris and Apollo specifically, yet as one. Osiris is the dominant theme of the Egyptian symbols, his resurrection and return, while the mottoes of the seal point directly to Apollo, and the eagle, a pagan emblem of Jupiter, to Apollo’s father. For instance, the motto Annuit Coeptis is from Virgil’s Aeneid, in which Ascanius, the son of Aeneas from conquered Troy, prays to Apollo’s father, Jupiter [Zeus]. Charles Thompson, designer of the Great Seal’s final version, condensed line 625 of book IX of Virgil’s Aeneid, which reads, Juppiter omnipotes, audacibus annue coeptis (“All-powerful Jupiter favors [the] daring undertakings”), to Annuit Coeptis (“He approves [our] undertakings”), while the phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum (“a new order of the ages”) was adapted in 1782 from inspiration Thompson found in a prophetic line in Virgil’s Eclogue IV: Magnus ab integro seclorum nascitur ordo (Virgil’s Eclogue IV, line 5), the interpretation of the original Latin being, “And the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew.” This phrase is from the Cumaean Sibyl (you’ll remember this is a pagan prophetess of Apollo, identified in the Bible as a demonic deceiver) and involves the future birth of a divine son, spawned of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” (what Roosevelt, Wallace, and Roerich were looking for) when he receives “the life of gods, and sees Heroes with gods commingling.” According to the prophecy, this is Apollo, son of Jupiter (Zeus), who returns to earth through mystical “life” given to him from the gods when the deity Saturn-Jupiter returns to reign over the earth in a new pagan Golden Age. This prophecy begins in symbolism on the front side of the Great Seal with the symbol of Jupiter, a bald eagle, which clutches a bundle of arrows in its left talon while its right claw grips an olive branch.


Zeitgeist 2025 Is Coming… And Here’s Enoch’s Apocalypse Of Weeks Prophecy

The Great Seal Tells the Prophetic Tale

Besides the origin of the Latin mottoes on the Great Seal being derived from Apollonian prophecies forecasting the second coming of Apollo-Osiris under the usurper-sovereignty of Jupiter-Saturn in a final occult world order, the symbols on the seal confirm the Secret Destiny of America and the desire of especially Thomas Jefferson to accommodate the magical entry of these entities at the start of what I would call the Great Tribulation period (2025?).

When gazing at the front side of the Great Seal, one is stricken with the redundancy of the number thirteen’s uses—thirteen leaves in the olive branch, thirteen bars and stripes in the shield, thirteen arrows in the eagle’s claw, and so on. This pattern continues on the reverse side with thirteen levels in the uncapped pyramid and the thirteen letters of Annuit Coeptis. Recall how Albert Pike revealed Freemasonry’s two sets of meanings behind such symbols, in this case the superficial translation for Blue-Degree Masonry and the profane (you and me), which asserts the number thirteen refers to the original thirteen colonies or states. However, the deeper meaning understood by 33rd-Degree Masonry is that the mystical number thirteen reflects those parts of Osiris that Isis was able to find after he was murdered by his evil brother Set (more on this later). The same is true with the phrase in the banner E Pluribus Unum (Latin, “Out of Many, One”) which laity are told refers to the many ethnicities that came together to form one nation, while high-degree occultists acknowledge that the true meaning of E Pluribus Unum echoes the god of many names (Gilgamesh, Osiris, Apollo, Nimrod) as the singular entity prophesied on the Great Seal to rule the world at the end of time. This is clearly understood whenever high-degree occultists and master freemasons observe the bald eagle, the ancient icon of the god Jupiter (whose prophesied return is captioned in the phrase Annuit Coeptis on the reverse side of the seal) with the thirteen stars forming a hexagram above his head. For example, 33rd-Degree Freemason and famous occultist Aliester Crowley—who claimed the incorporeal entity Aiwass elected him to be the prophet that would lead the world into the Age of Horus (second coming of Osiris-Apollo)—employed the same symbols of eagle and hexagram as a talisman to summon the second coming of Jupiter.

And then there is the accompanying layout of Washington DC itself.

David Ovason, whose works have been widely endorsed by Freemasons as well as Robert Hieronimus (considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on the Great Seal) as “exceptionally well referenced,” adds that the dedication of buildings such as the US Capitol building cornerstone had to be done at certain astrological times related to the zodiacal constellation Virgo (Isis), while Jupiter was rising in Scorpio, because “the cornerstone ceremonial was designed not only to gain the approval of the spiritual beings, but also to ensure that these were content that the building was being brought into the world at the right time.”[iii] Ovason later states more directly, “Whoever arranged for Virgo to be so consistently operative during foundation and cornerstone ceremonies, must have been alert to the fact that they were inviting some archetype, or spiritual being, to direct the destiny of the city” (italics in the original).[iv] Finally, Ovason hints who the “spiritual being” governing the capital of the United States is: “A medieval esotericist…would have said that Washington, D.C., was governed by the intelligency Hamaliel, the spiritual entity which ruled Virgo, and which worked hand in hand with Mercury.”[v] Hamaliel is an evil adversary of the cherubim of God, serving under Lilith, whose devotees gather annually with US presidents and other “dignitaries” to honor her at the Bohemian Grove.

As a result of this alignment of the Capitol buildings and streets in Washington, DC, with this constellation, every August 10, an astrological event reoccurs in the sky above the nation’s capital, tying the city to the pagan Virgo—known in ancient Egypt as the goddess Isis. “At dusk, as golden light turns brick facades a dusty rose, the shimmering sun floats a few degrees just to the left of Pennsylvania Avenue, gradually inching to the right until it sets directly over the famous street,” writes Julie Duin. “If the horizon remains cloudless, three stars are visible in a straight line from the Capitol to the White House to the skies in the west. Known as Regulus, Arcturus and Spica, the stars form a right-angled triangle framing the constellation of Virgo.”[vi] Such mysticism incorporated into the design of Washington, DC, by Freemasons for summoning the timing, presence, and approval of these “invisible agents” was a formula perfected in pagan Rome. John Fellows explains why:

They consulted the gods, to know if the enterprise would be acceptable to them, and if they approved of the day chosen to begin the work…they invoked, besides the gods of the country, the gods to whose protection the new city was recommended, which was done secretly, because it was necessary that the tutelary gods should be unknown to the vulgar.[vii]

It may come as little surprise then that when George W. Bush, in a speech the day before his second inaugural, said the United States had “a calling from beyond the stars” (a disturbing statement taken directly from the satanic Necronomicon fiction concerning alien creator gods) that the Capitol building had been intentionally set in the head of a Masonic owl figure, which in turn stands atop the White House, located on the chin of the pentagramic goat of Mendes. The upside-down pentagram, or Baphomet, clearly visible in the DC street layout, represents the goat’s head and is considered the most powerful symbol in Satanism, while the owl figure is a well-known representative of the Masonic, Illuminati, Bohemian owl of wisdom incarnation of Athene, Minerva, Lilith, and Hecate.




The Washington, DC, Pentagram

As Christian Pinto noted in the preface of Zenith 2016, all serious researchers contend that the controversy over the pentagram is not about whether it is truly there. Aerial photos clearly reveal it. Even the Masons, who deny that they are responsible for it, acknowledge its presence, but argue that Rhode Island Avenue does not extend all the way to complete the figure. As such, the debate is twofold: 1) Was the pentagram intentional, or simply the coincidence of geometric lines? 2) Why is the pentagram incomplete? The answer to the second part seems to reveal the first. As explained in Riddles in Stone, the unfinished pentagram is a well-known symbol in Freemasonry. As Manly P. Hall records in his writings:

The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch.… When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof” or the “footprint of the devil.”[viii]

Of course, Hall was writing in the twentieth century, but was this symbolism known by Masons during the founding era? The answer is yes. One of the most famous Master Masons of all time was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who made use of such a pentagram in the play, Faust, in which the character of Faust summons Mephistophiles (the devil) to make a pact with him. As the devil tries to leave, he is hindered. As a result, he and Faust have the following exchange:


Let me go up! I cannot go away;

a little hindrance bids me stay.

The Witch’s foot upon your sill I see.


The pentagram? That’s in your way?

You son of Hell, explain to me,

If that stays you, how came you in today?

And how was such a spirit so betrayed?


Observe it closely! It is not well made;

One angle, on the outer side of it,

Is just a little open, as you see.[ix]

The “open” or “broken” pentagram was used by Faust to summon the devil in a black magic ceremony. The famous author of the play, Goethe, was not only a Mason, but also a well-known member of the Bavarian Illuminati. To this day, Freemasons proudly acknowledge that his writings are filled with Masonic symbolism, while books have been written about his Illuminist involvement.

Goethe published his first edition of Faust in 1790 (called Faust: ein Fragment), and it was in the next two years that Pierre L’Enfant (with the possible help of Thomas Jefferson) came up with the street design for Washington DC (1791–1792). It is therefore provable that members of these secret orders were familiar with the idea of an unfinished pentagram before the street layout was complete. Admittedly, this does not, of itself, prove that the pentagram was intentional. Yet it is interesting that Goethe’s play and the DC design were done during the same period. Because of the close interaction between the Freemasonry of America and that of Europe, it is entirely possible (and likely) that L’Enfant and Jefferson were familiar with the symbol and placed it intentionally.

Occultists around the world understand the power of these DC symbols and rituals, and they realize they’re not only for conveying psychological concepts, but actually for coercing the mysterious and potent supernaturalism invited to take residence there. This belief is deeply preserved in all of the Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Kabalistic symbolism that is a part of Masonic history, and according to famous Freemason Foster Bailey, these symbols intentionally hide “a secret…which veils mysterious forces. These energies when released can have a potent effect.”[x] Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle once famously added: “By symbols, accordingly, is man guided and commanded, made happy, made wretched.” As previously pointed out, Masons, as a result, are under oath never to reveal the true meaning of their symbols, and when somehow they are compelled to offer explanation, they falsify the statement, even to lower-degree Masons.

Substantial reasons exist for why the designers of Washington’s Government Center would have wanted to obscure the meaning behind the occultic layout of America’s capital. If the public in general had been prematurely convinced of the end game prophesied in the DC symbolism, it would have been beyond the acceptance of prior generations who likely would have demanded change in leaders and facilities. But as time has moved forward and increasingly it has become necessary for public understanding of America’s heritage and intended purpose, little by little—either by providence, promotion, or even resistance—a clearer picture has emerged of what Manly P. Hall called “the secret destiny of America” (according to the symbolism in Washington DC, this destiny includes future national and global subservience to the god of Freemasonry).

Ovason confirms how such obfuscation was deployed on the Great Seal down to the smallest detail, including how a letter was “cut” from the Latin word saeclorum (the usual spelling) in order to create the word seclorum to contribute to three sets of thirteen on the reverse side of the Great Seal.



After acknowledging that the top motto, Annuit Coeptis, had the obligatory thirteen letters, Ovason pointed out how saeclorum was letter-cut to join the bottom motto, Nvus Ordo Seclorum, so that the phrase would end up being seventeen letters, which, when added to the nine numerals in the Roman date, would equal a total of twenty-six, or two sets of the number thirteen. Combined with the top motto, these three sets of thirteen were very important to establish, Ovason says, in order to reflect the trinity represented in the Great Seal “Eye of Providence, and in the nominal triangle from which the pyramid is constructed.”[xi]

Based purely on the Great Seal’s symbolism, the trinity these three sets of the number thirteen denote is authoritatively identified as Osiris, Horus, and Isis, the pagan versions of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, respectively. The use of the number thirteen in this way also connects the Great Seal to the mythological and astrological significance of the legend of Osiris as the dying and rising god. It was evidently so important to maintain this talisman-like value, thirteen, that other phases of the design and layout of Washington, DC, were coordinated accordingly, says Ovason. This includes the laying of the White House cornerstone on October 13, 1792, by Masons, and the Fourth of July signing of the Declaration of Independence thirteen days after summer solstice, so that the sun would be on Sirius. In Egyptian mythology, the sun represented Osiris while the star Sirius symbolized Isis, and thirteen was the number of pieces of Osiris that Isis was able to find after Seth, his evil brother, murdered and threw fourteen pieces of him into the Nile. Isis searched the riverbank until she recovered every piece, except for his genitals, which had been swallowed by a fish. Isis replaced the missing organ with an obelisk and magically impregnated herself with Horus. Therefore, in Masonic as well as in ancient Egyptian mythology, the number thirteen—used a total of thirteen times on the Great Seal, counting front and back—is the number that represents the return or resurrection of Osiris.

This mythology was so meaningful to the founding of the United States and the construction of its capital—including having the missing Osiris genitalia represented by the 6,666-inches-high Egyptian obelisk known as the Washington Monument—that nearly all of David Ovason’s five hundred-plus-page Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital is dedicated to establishing the singular correlation between Washington, DC, and Virgo, the constellation of Isis, or what Ovason calls “Isis, who was the chief of the feminine mystery deities and the prototype of the steller Virgo.”[xii]

This affiliation existed from the very day Freemasons gathered on April 15, 1791, beginning appropriately at 3:30 p.m. (reflecting the mystical value of thirty-three) because of the astrological position of Jupiter and Virgo, and what this would mean for the Secret Destiny of America:

At exactly 3:30 PM, Jupiter…began to rise over the horizon. It was in 23 degrees of Virgo.… By this means, the zodiacal power of Virgo, which was called in later Masonic circles “the Beautiful Virgin,” was able to stamp her benign influence on the building of the federal city.… A few of the many Freemasons present at this ceremony would have been only to well aware of the profound implications of what they were doing.… It is quite clear that the ceremonial placing of the stone related to more than merely the founding of the federal district: it was somehow linked to the future destiny of America itself.[xiii]

By dedicating the United States through its astrological alignment to the “Virgin” constellation of Isis, the founders had dedicated the “destiny” of America to fulfilling the secret doctrine of Freemasonry, as also reflected in the Osiris/Apollo symbolism of the Great Seal, concerning subservience—now and upon his return as Antichrist—to Osiris/Apollo/Nimrod.

Interestingly, the same dedication to Osiris/Isis/Apollo exists in New York where the events of September 11, 2001, initiated the push toward the Novus Ordo Seclorum. The Statue of Liberty in New York’s Harbor, which holds the Masonic “Torch of Enlightenment,” was presented in 1884 as a gift to American Masons by the French Grand Orient Temple Masons.

Designed by French Freemason and sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by another French Freemason, Gustave Eiffel, the statue was originally identified as “the goddess Isis” with the statue’s head formed to represent “the Greek Sun-god Apollo…as preserved on an ancient marble tablet (today in the Archaeological Museum of Corinth, Corinth, Greece)—Apollo was represented as a solar deity, dressed in a similar robe and having on its head a ‘radiate crown’ with the seven spiked rays of the Helios-Apollo’s sun rays.”[xiv]

The legend of Osiris and Isis, the connection with Apollo, the magical number thirteen, and the history surrounding their mythos is often openly discussed in Masonic and brotherhood-friendly literature. For instance in Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike enumerated the esoteric significance of the Osiris epic at length, adding that lower-level Masons (Blue Masonry) are ignorant of its true meaning, which is only known to those who are “initiated into the Mysteries.”[xv] Pike also spoke of the star Sirius—connected to Isis and at length to Lucifer/Satan—as “still glittering” in the Masonic lodges as “the Blazing Star.” Elsewhere in Morals and Dogma, Pike reiterated that the “All-Seeing Eye…was the emblem of Osiris”[xvi] and that the “Sun was termed by the Greeks the Eye of Jupiter, and the Eye of the World; and his is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges.”[xvii]

Once people understand this illuminated Masonic connection to the “trinity” on America’s Great Seal, and what the prophetic symbolism, mottoes, and numerology imply, it becomes apparent why so much effort was put forward for so long by those who felt it was necessary to hide this extraordinary destiny. Ovason acknowledges this conspiracy of silence as well:

The motto at the top of the seal, Annuit Coeptis, is from Virgil…from the Aeneid.… This is a prayer to the god Jupiter.… We should observe that while the subject matter of the reverse of the seal is undoubtedly pagan—if symbolic of hermetic Egypt—the superior motto is itself a prayer to a pagan god. Could this be the reason why there has been so much reluctance to bring the reverse of the seal into the light of day? Whatever the nature of the god, the prayer directed in this way is a petition that the daring undertaking [the Secret Destiny of America as symbolized in “finishing” the pyramid] may be completed, and that the new age will find fulfillment.[xviii]

Ovason, a Mason whose research earned praise from Fred Kleinknecht, Sovereign Grand Commander of the 33rd-Degree Supreme Council of Freemasons in Washington, DC, is to be thanked for inadvertently revealing what the Illuminatus has secretly known for ages—that the Great Seal of the United States is a pagan prophecy and petition to a pagan god (the same entity the Bible identifies by name as the end-times Antichrist) to assist in the conclusion of the great work by his return. “When we have grasped the importance of these New Age expectations,” Ovason concludes, “we shall be in a better position to understand why the design for this reverse [side of the Great Seal] has remained so consistently hidden.”[xix]
