The Swan Arch of Staines decoded?

Staines vesica piscis

A new analysis of the symbolism of the swan arch of Staines suggests its meaning may be related to the Egyptian ‘Primordial Scission’ which tells the story of the first stages of creation in sacred geometry terms.

The sun is the  contents of the invisible egg that is everything and nothing at the same time and is broken by the scission from the crossed blades that form the vesica piscis with their shadow. It is from the vesica piscis that all life comes from.

This is a variation on the Primordial Scission creation story. The event occurs at sunset and facing west whereas the Goddess of the Dawn, Eos, Ostara, Eastre, Easter rises in the East.

In Greek mythology, Astraeus was an astrological deity and the Titan-god of the dusk. He married Eos. Hespara was the Greek goddess  of dusk.

That Easter was originally the festival of the Spring Equinox may explain one of the reasons why eggs are associated with Easter. Because an egg contains a sun, or soul, or sol within it as potential and the Spring Equinox dawn celebrations mark the time of year when days or deus or dios are of equal length as nights. The anticipation of spring and the gradual lengthening of daylight hours is also a part of this astro-theological resurrection ritual.

The Isis, Ostara and 15.15 alpha-numeric geo-temporal transposition cryptogram

Isis 1515

ISIS 1515 cryptogram

Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ who is the son – the light of the world – the sun. In pagan times the goddess Ēostre or Ostara was worshipped during the Spring Equinox. Ostara is another facet of the Lady with 10,000 names – Isis.

The letter I can be transposed to the number 1 and the same with the letter S and number 5 as the 5ociety has already illustrated.  So ISIS becomes 1515 or quarter past three in the afternoon.

Both hands of the clock point due east at this time. The word ‘east’ means ‘shine’ or ‘dawn’ as this is the direction the sun rises each morning.

Ēostre derives from Proto-Germanic *Austrō, ultimately from a PIE root *h₂ewes- (→ *awes-), “to shine”, and therefore closely related to a reconstructed name of *h₂ewsṓs, the dawn goddess, which would account for Greek “Eos”, Roman “Aurora”, and Indian “Ushas”.[1] The modern English term “Easter” is the direct continuation of Old English Ēastre, whose role as a goddess is attested solely by Bede in the 8th century
