Firstly a reminder of from where the concept of the

17th January

first came to light in the Saunière story

It first appeared on the Tombstone of

Marquise d’Hautpoul de Blanchefort

The headstone of Marie de Blanchfort


17th January 1681

Aged 67 years 

O is not a Roman Numeral

  From this the date 17th January occurs several times in the story of Saunière and the Prieure de Sion

ARTICLE NINETEEN of the statutes of the Prieuré de Sion states –
There are 243 Free Brothers, called Preux or, since the year 1681, Enfants de Saint Vincent, who participate neither in the vote nor in Convents, but to whom the Prieuré de Sion accords certain rights and privileges in conformity with the decree of January 17th, 1681.

Note: A statue of Saint Vincent de Paul is in the grounds of the church at Notre Dame de Marceille.

Another  significant occurrence being that the 17th January is the feast day of Saint Sulpice

The patron saint of the church in Paris that is on the Rose Line


Plantard's New Eorope

The date shown is 1946

Please note that this is before the supposed beginning of the Priory of Sion.

The star over the rising Sun is one of the Royal Stars

On the 17th January 1946 the United Nations Security Council held its first meeting.

They met in Westminster, London

Etats Unis d'Occident - meaning - United States of the West


Either side (guiding) is Brittany and Bavaria

Zodiac Sign for Aquarius

 The star sign Aquarius starts on 17th January.

In France

On the left is the three headed Janvarius - On the right Aquarius pouring the pitcher of water

17th January the Sun moves into the Zodiac sign AQUARIUS

It is also the NEW AGE after PISCES


The last supper

The Leonardo da Vinci Fresco in Santa Maria delle Grazie, in Milan Italy

Milan was a centre for Templar activity in Italy in the 12th century

In the centre of  Leonardo's Fresco is Jesus - The Sun

With him the TWELVE disciples. Each one represents a Zodiac House.

Grouped into threes - The three months in each season.

Through which the Sun (Jesus) moves throughout the year. 

Extreme right is the disciple representing the Zodiac sign PISCES pointing with both hands in the direction

of the retrograde movement of the obliquity of the Equinoxes

Next to him to his right (our left) is the disciple representing AQUARIUS 


Remember that Leonardo da Vinci said

"I could wish that I had such power as should avail me to insure those who would extoll the worship of men above that of the Sun. Those who have wished to worship men have made a very grave error"




Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the Passover must be killed.

And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the Passover, that we may eat.

And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city,

there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water;

follow him into the house where he entereth in.

11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?

12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the Passover.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:

16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.


Leonardo's Fresco depicts not just the Passover from Summer to Autumn but the Passover from PISCES to AQUARIUS



The man bearing a pitcher of water is AQUARIUS

The Age of Jesus (The Sun) was in was PISCES (twin fishes) hence the Christian fish


The Sun, because of the obliquity of the Equinoxes has moved into AQUARIUS from Pisces on the 23rd December 2012.

According to the French IGN.

And also the Mayan Calendar which is based mainly on the number 13.

There is a maximum of 13 Lunar cycles in one year

Perhaps it is worth quoting Tracy Twyman here that the 23rd December 2012 is

also the 1333rd anniversary of the death of the Merovingian King Dagobert II

She mentions that the word DAG means 'Fish' and the word BERT means 'house'

So the death of Dagobert means the death of the House of Fish - PISCES.

Perhaps another of Philippe de Chérisey's wordplays.

He is there dead.



So why is the woman in Poussin's painting deliberately showing her thigh?


by Nicolas Poussin

Currently in Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England.

Man bearing pitcher of water.

Note the 'Man bearing pitcher of water' in the foreground - Again

Each character represents a constellation

Left to right the constellations of Ursa Major (deliberately showing her thigh),

Böötes, with Arcas son of Callisto

Bearded Hercules pointing at the phrase I am in Arcadia (Hercules was in Arcadia when he undertook his Labours)

and seated


  "the 'Thigh in the sky' is in fact the constellation of Ursa Major"

Quote from Robert Bauval

The Thigh

The THIGH and hoof of the OX (centre)  from the Temple of Hathor in Denderah.

Picture from Robert Bauval's website.

Ursa Major

Picture again from Robert Bauval's website showing Ursa Major (The thigh in the sky) in the centre.

You will notice that the shepherdess is deliberately showing her thigh, that is because Poussin is representing her (Callisto) as Ursa Major.


CALLISTO - deliberately showing her Thigh

In Greek mythology (Ovid's Metamorphosis), Callisto or Kallisto (/kəˈlɪst/; Greek: Καλλιστώ [kallisˈtɔː]) was a nymph of Lycaon.

She was transformed into a bear and set among the stars, she was the bear-mother of the Arcadians, through her son Arcas (click here).

Poussin carried a copy of Ovid's Metamorphosis 24/7

URSA MAJOR - The Great Bear (female)

Male would be Ursus


17th January

Firstly this from Le Serpent Rouge


"My emotion was great "DELIVER ME FROM THE MIRE" I said, and I awoke immediately. I haven't told you in fact that this was a dream that I'd had this 17thJANUARY, feast day of Saint SULPICE. Afterwards my trouble persisting, I wanted after reflection to tell you a story by PERRAULT. Here then, Dear Reader, in the pages which follow the result of a dream having soothed me into the world of the strange and unknown. GOOD comes to him THAT DOES GOOD."

The true meaning however is best delivered in French

"Mon émotion fut grande, "RETIRE MOI DE LA BOUE" disais-je, et mon réveil fut immédiat. J'ai omis de vous dire en effet que c'était un songe que j'avais fait ce 17 JANVIER, fête de Saint SULPICE. Par la suite mon trouble persitant, j'ai voulu après réflexions d'usage vous le relater un conte de PERRAULT. Voici donc Ami Lecteur, dans les pages qui suivent le résultat d'un rêve m'ayant bercé dans le monde de l'étrange à l'inconnu. A celui qui PASSE de FAIRE LE BIEN !"

PERRAULT refers to Claude Perrault who designed the east facade of the Louvre.



PASSE means The Master Key



is a reference to 

Chevaliers bienfaisant de la Cité sainte

The Holy City (Cité sainte) is of course SION

Another name for the Chevalier Bienfaisant de la Cité sainte


Rite écossais rectifié

one of the founders was Jean-Baptiste Willermoz - he was a Martinist

On July 16th, on September 1st , 1782 , the general convent of Wilhelmsbad was held there, where 36 delegates from all over Europe duly appointed (and in particular Freemasonry and French Freemasonry ) were drafted. the Scottish Rite rectified . The documents and documents were written and kept by the French-speaking secretary appointed for this convent , Jean-Baptiste Willermoz . He defended the Masonic movement of Martinism , whereas previously Brother Joseph de Maistre had sent him his famous Memoir to the Duke of Brunswick , addressed to the Duke Ferdinand of Brunswick-Lunebourg , who presides over the workshops of Wilhelmsbad, but is not  followed in this process by the other delegates


Gino Sandri, Priory of Sion's Secretary General from 1977

was on the editorial board of the International Centre for Martinist Research

Rite écossais rectifié

In English

Rectified Scottish Rite Freemasonry

Their Lodges are called


In short the Chevaliers Bienfaisant de la Cité sainte


the secret form of the


or Prieure de Sion


The Rectified Scottish Rite was codified during the General Convent of Wilhelmsbad in 1782 under the presidency of Duke Ferdinand of Brunswick-Lüneburg, who became Grand Master of the Order at the end of this convent 1 . Thirty-six duly mandated Freemasons from all over Europe work there from July 16 to September 1 2 . The work being held in French and German, two secretaries are appointed to record all documents and decisions. The designated French-speaking secretary is Jean-Baptiste Willermoz . This general convent is preceded by twelve national or regional preparatory convective such as the Kolho convent of 1772 in Lusatia 3 , the Brunswick convent of 1775 or the convent of Gaul in Lyon in 1778 2 .

Strict Observance

The Strict Observance logo of the Sun

During this convent general, the conventuals rectify the geographical structure (used until then and resulting from Strict observance Templar ) in nine provinces. Each province has at its summit a prefecture, named "Grand Priory" . They also decided to abandon all filiations with the Templar legacy . During this convent they write in extenso the rituals of the first three symbolic grades and the articulation of the 4th grade, including elements of the Order of the Elus Coëns . Nevertheless, many decisions taken could not be transcribed in the facts on the spot. In particular, and in particular, the reform of the "Masonic Code of the Reunited and Rectified Lodges of France" (called "Code of Lyon" ) 4 and that of the "General Code of Regulations of the Order of the CBCS" 5 from of the convent of Gaul. These two reforms are therefore used as a basis and are amended during a dozen working sessions. The codification of these changes in order to form the "Masonic Code of Lodges Reunited under the Scottish Regime" (known as the "Wilhelmsbad Code" ) and "The General Code of Regulations of the Chevalier Bienfaisant de la City Sainte Order " is left to the secretaries. Their work must be validated during a subsequent general convent that never meets because of the French Revolution .

Jean-Baptiste Willermoz is therefore committed to finalizing the work entrusted to him. This set is considered as the first version of the rituals 6 . In the following years, he meets various people who have an influence on his work. In 1787, he met a supporter of Mesmer and spiritualism , Madame de Vallière 7 . His influence made him modify the rituals, which created a second set of rituals around 1788 . After the French revolution, in 1808 , on the occasion of the "rectification" of the lodge "the centre of friends" in Lyon 8 , a third set of rituals was written, including elements referring to alchemy . Finally, at the end of his life, he revises once again all the rituals to make a fourth set around 1820

It is important to state here that Béranger Sauniére made several visits to a Martinist Lodge in Lyon.

He was an Honoured guest there.

 Duke Ferdinand of Brunswick-Lüneburg was a member of the Bavarian Illuminati.



The significance of January 17th

At DAWN on the 17th January 1681 (a special day for the Prieure de Sion) the Sun rises in Capricorn bearing 118º.

However due east at dawn is the Constellation of Aquarius.

from la Tour d'Alchemie in Rennes le Chateau

At this same moment

Directly overhead (Zenith) are the constellations of Ophiucus (The snake charmer), Böötes, Hercules and Ursa Major.

The figures represented at the tomb in the Poussin painting Les Bergers d'Arcadie

Left to right

Ophiucus (The snake charmer) - 

Hercules (kneeling, pointing at the phrase 'I am in Arcadia' - he was in Arcadia during the 12 Labours ),

Böötes (Arcas - The Bear watcher- , foot on Mons Maenalus, a mountain in Arcadia) and

Ursa Major (Callisto - Zeus turned her into a bear and flung her into the sky - , she is the mother of Arcas, her hand is on his shoulder).

Despite the opinion of others the background view of Poussin's Shepherds of Arcadia is similar to the view from a Tomb close to the town of Arques.

The tomb of Fleury in Rennes les Bains

Here is the tomb of Paul Urbain de Fleury in Rennes les Bains cemetery

  On it it says

Il est passé en faisant le bien

Someone has deliberately tried to deface it.

The tomb has been moved to this position.

The original tomb said the date he was born was the 1st May 1776

The date of the start of the Illuminati.

1st May is also the pagan festival of Beltane.
