The Crest

In medieval times, the Crest originated as a means of identification, 
attached to the helmet and resting on a "wreath of colors," which 
was a pad of silk echoing the colors of the Shield.  Heraldry was 
faithful to the origins of the Crest either supported on a wreath of 
colors or rising out of a crown.  The Crest of the United States, 
however, neither rests on a wreath nor rises out of a crown; it stands 
alone, showing America's power to stand on its own, needing neither 
supporter nor crown.

The Crest of the United States is composed of three elements: the 
Glory or Radiance, the Cloud, and the Constellation or Stars.

_The Glory_, obviously, symbolizes the presence of God.  It also 
represents the Divine Ray of Consciousness and Life which 
proceeds from the Absolute.  The Glory thus stands for the 
spiritual consciousness of the nation.

_The Cloud_ is represented as rolling back, indicating the breaking 
up of the storm of ignorance, injustice and oppression before the 
dawning light of a new and potent constellation.

_The Constellation_ is composed of thirteen stars, set in the middle 
of the Glory and the Cloud.  The star is an ancient symbol of the 
divine spark of life.  Originally, the stars in the Constellation were 
six-pointed stars, as can be seen in the first die cast in 1782.  
The second die, cast in 1825, was only used for treaties but it also 
bore six-pointed stars.  The five-pointed star first appeared in the 
die cast by John Throop in 1841 and has been copied from die to die 
since, including the die in current use.  So the symbolism of the 
five-pointed star was not considered by the Founding Fathers in the 
design of the Crest.  Instead, they used thirteen six-pointed stars 
and arranged them in the shape of a larger six-pointed star.

The six-pointed star, also known as Solomon's Seal, is a very ancient 
symbol.  It is composed of two interfaced equilateral triangles with 
one apex point up, the other point down.  The upper triangle symbolizes 
the spiritual, the lower represents the material world.  Superimposed 
and interlocking, the six-pointed star embraces all points and is a 
symbol for the universe.  The number thirteen appeared six times in the 
Coat of Arms; it is carried to the ultimate in the Crest with the thirteen 
six-sided stars in the six-pointed Constellation.

In the adaptation from the Crest to the Flag, however, the five-pointed 
star was the star of choice.  The five-pointed star with the point up 
represents the highest power of spirituality on earth and is known as 
the Star of Man.  The top point represents the Higher Self dominating the 
four lower points - the elements of fire, water, air and earth.

In the Crest, we have the new nation symbolized by the Constellation and 
all that it portends, surrounded by the Glory, rolling back the Clouds, 
and standing on its own.

The Reverse of the Great Seal

In ancient times, the reverse seal was a guard against unauthorized 
duplication of the seal.  Each seal was placed in the care of a trusted 
guardian.  The Secretary of State has custody of the entire Seal 
(Reverse and Obverse) in the United States.

The Reverse Face of the Great Seal is composed of the Unfinished Pyramid, 
the Eye of Providence, the Radiant Triangle, the Motto "Annuit Coeptis," 
the Roman numerals MDCCLXXVI and the Motto "Novus Ordo Seclorum."

_The Unfinished Pyramid_ officially represents the Great Pyramid of Giza 
and symbolizes strength and duration.  The Great Pyramid of Giza covered 
thirteen acres; its original height was 481 feet, which adds up to thirteen 
(4+8+1).  In the Giza Complex, where the Great Pyramid is located, are the 
Pyramids of Chephren, son of Cheops, and Mycerinius.  There are smaller 
pyramids close by; the number of the pyramids in the Giza Complex totals 

The Unfinished Pyramid on the Reverse of the Great Seal is composed of 
thirteen courses, or rows, of masonry.  The Pyramid itself is a potent 
symbol from the ancient past, representing the seat of the Spiritual Triad 
resting upon the foundation of the four planes of the lower four sides.  
It echoes the Law of Threes which is found in all things, and which is 
symbolized by the Triangle; it has been appropriated by the Christians 
and incorporated into their religion as the Doctrine of the Trinity, 
although this potent symbol, whose law is reflected in everything, dates 
back to the beginning of time.

_The Eye of Providence_ is also known as the All-Seeing Eye or the 
Mystical Eye.  The use of the Eye of Providence was first proposed by 
Eugene Pierre du Simitiere, a West Indian Frenchman who lived in 
Philadelphia.  He was greatly interested in the history of the colonies 
and their struggle for independence, and was called upon to draw 
designs for various state, local and institutional seals.  He was 
engaged by the members of the first committee, Benjamin Franklin, 
John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, in their endeavors to design a 
Great Seal.  Thomas Jefferson suggested surrounding the Eye with the 
Radiant Triangle.

The Eye of Providence is one of humanity's most ancient symbols.  
The All-Seeing Eye, piercing and keen, cannot be deceived.  The 
earliest use of the Eye of Providence was in ancient Chaldea.  The use 
of this symbol at the apex of the Pyramid denotes the watchful Eye of 
Divine Providence watching over the destiny of the nation.

_The Radiant Triangle_ incorporates the Law of Threes with the 
presence of God.  Ancient Freemasonry employed the triangle, 
usually in connection with the All-Seeing Eye.  Throughout the 
entire system of Masonry, no symbol is more important in its 
significance - it is the Masonic symbol of the Grand Architect of 
the Universe."  The entire symbol of the Eye of Providence in the 
Radiant Triangle forms the cornerstone of the Unfinished Pyramid.

_The Motto "Annuit Coeptis"_ means "He [God] Hath Prospered Our 
Undertakings [beginnings]."  This motto is directly above the 
All-Seeing Eye and the Radiant Triangle.  An earlier design for the 
Reverse Seal contained the motto "Deo Favente," meaning "With God's 
Favor."  Although meaning essentially the same thing, Thomson changed 
the motto to "Annuit Coeptis," which contains thirteen letters while 
"Deo Favente" contains only ten.  "Annuit Coeptis" is an emblem of the 
Eye of Providence.  It also refers to the Unfinished Pyramid below, 
building toward the capstone of the All-Seeing Eye as the Eye not only 
watches over and prospers the Pyramid but completes it as well.

_The Roman Numerals MDCCLXXVI_, 1776, are on the base of the 
Unfinished Pyramid, obviously a reference to the year of our 
Independence and the foundation of the Republic.  The date, formed 
of nine Roman numerals, are the foundation upon which the 
Unfinished Pyramid, another symbol of our nation, builds.

_The Motto "Novus Ordo Seclorum"_ means "New Order of the Ages."  
It is an intentionally altered quotation from Virgil's Fourth Eclogue.  
It is emblazoned on a scroll across the bottom of the Reverse Face.  
In this motto, the Founding Fathers expressed their vision of a world 
which would never be the same after the establishment of the new 
nation, promising individual liberty, freedom and progress, and 
growing toward the wisdom and beauty of the All-Seeing Eye who has 
prospered its undertakings.

The Symbology of the Numbers

_Thirteen_ has the greatest significance, appearing on both the 
Obverse and Reverse of the Great Seal.  It quite obviously refers to 
the thirteen original colonies which formed the nucleus of the new 
nation.  There are the thirteen stripes on the shield, thirteen leaves 
and thirteen olives on the olive branch, thirteen arrows with thirteen 
fledges, thirteen stars in the constellation, and thirteen letters of 
the motto "E Pluribus Unum" on the Obverse; on the Reverse are the 
thirteen courses of masonry in the Unfinished Pyramid, thirteen letters 
in the motto "Annuit Coeptis."  In all, the number thirteen appears nine 
times in all three elements which compose the Great Seal: The Coat of Arms, 
the Crest and the Reverse.

Thirteen has had negative connotations for many, being feared as 
an unlucky omen or the symbol of death.  Indeed, it does represent 
death, but not in the ordinary sense - death is merely a change in form.  
The thirteen used so significantly in American heraldry  signifies the 
change, or death, to the old ways and the beginning of the New Order of 
the Ages.  In its negative connotation, thirteen is representative of 
death through degeneration.  In its positive aspect, it represents 
life and attainment through regeneration.  As the significant symbol 
in the birth of our nation, it clearly symbolizes life.  Thirteen signifies 
completeness or infinity and is a fortuitous symbol for the new American 
nation, composed of thirteen states yet indivisible - thirteen is a "holy" 
number and cannot be divided.  Not coincidentally, the thirteenth card  in 
the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck is Death, which symbolizes reproduction 
and birth, though not necessarily into this world, but as a rebirth of the 
consciousness into higher planes.  Thus the New Order of the Ages is born, 
proclaiming its destiny symbolically on the Great Seal, simultaneously 
signifying birth and death.  Interestingly, there are thirteen lunar months 
in a year which resonate with a fertile woman's average reproductive cycle 
of 28 days.  Thirteen denotes the Soul and the reflection of God, the number 
twelve being that of the Spirit.

_Nine_ is the number of tailfeathers on the eagle, balanced by the 
nine Roman numerals forming the year 1776.  There is some very 
interesting symbology here.  Nine is the number on which all life is 
based.  It was the most frequently used number in the ancient Egyptian 
religion.  It is a multiple of three... and not just any multiple, but 
three times itself.  A trinity of trinities.  Three, being the Trinity, 
represents a perfect unity; twice three is the perfect dual and three 
times three is the perfect plural.  This explains why nine is such a 
mystical and revered number.  This is three times the Law of Threes.

The nine Roman numerals of the year 1776 on the Reverse of the 
Great Seal: If you add the numbers in 1776 (1+7+7+6), the sum is 21, 
which is three, seven times.  Seven signifies completion or consummation, 
indicating the beginning and ending of a cycle.  And, of course, we just 
mentioned that three represents a perfect unity.  And the beginning of 
perfect unity.  And if you take the number 21 and add the two to the one, 
you get three again!

This Roman numeral balances the nine tailfeathers in the eagle on 
the front of the Seal.  The tailfeathers on a bird are almost 
indispensable to flight; without the tailfeathers, the bird can fly 
but cannot guide itself.  So here we have the symbology of nine, the 
perfect plural, being necessary for the straight and true flight of 
the eagle, representative of America, the perfect plurality.

Independence Day

_July 4, 1776_.  Much thought was given to the date on which the 
colonies would become a nation -- there was no coincidence here.  
The date was charted astrologically to give our country the most 
advantageous start possible.  John Hancock, President of the 
Continental Congress, and Secretary Charles Thomson signed the 
original Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, to set 
America's destiny in motion.  The Declaration was signed by the 
remaining delegates between August 2 and August 20, 1776, except 
for a New Hampshire delegate, Dr. Matthew Thornton, who signed it 
November 4, 1776.  Let's look at the significance of Independence Day 
and what it means.

America was born under the sign of Cancer; its element is Water in its 
vigorousness and progressiveness.  The sign of Cancer represents that 
aspect of the spirit which collects the experiences, feelings and 
sensations of many lives.  It is a nurturing and sustaining expression 
of the element of Water.  This is a very progressive area of the zodiac.  
America was born with a religious and philosophical outlook, and has 
strong psychic tendencies.  Her life lesson is to learn and experience 
the value of freedom.

Numerologically the birthdate of America produces the number five 
(7+4+1+7+7+6=32=5).  This is a magical number ruling people and nations.  
The words America, Christ, glory, power and circle share the same 
numerological significance.  As such, America is a herald of light, 
commissioned to send that light forth to the world.  America is a warrior 
for righteousness with a developed sense of duty and responsibility, and 
her keyword is "freedom."

The United States of America

The name for our country was chosen carefully by the Founding Fathers 
as well and it also has vast numerological significance.  America has 
the number nine as her path of destiny, signifying the pursuit of 

The founders of our nation intended her to be a humanitarian country 
who would attempt to make the world a better place in which to live 
by her beacon of hope and inspiration.  Since nine indicates attainment, 
perfection and completion as well as new beginnings, they were careful 
to make sure that this was America's number.  They meant for her to be 
generous and idealistic; for those seeking her wisdom and guidance, she 
was to be open-handed and beneficent, realizing that knowledge belongs 
to those who seek it.

The American Dream

The preceeding indicates clearly that there was a specific destiny 
in mind for America and her people, clearly thought out and planned 
by those first patriots.  The Great American Experiment of freedom and 
self-government was intended to come to full bloom in our country.  
They carefully charted the day of our nation's birth, fully aware of its 
astrological significance, and just as carefully chose the name of our 
country, aware of the power of the name and its resonance with the 
universe.  They chose the proud, far-seeing eagle as the symbol of our 
nation's soul as well as the Unfinished Pyramid, capped by the glory of 
the Eye of Providence within the Radiant Triangle and based upon the 
number signifying the ending of the old, repressive order and the 
beginning of the New Order of the Ages.  And to that end, they embedded 
great metaphysical truths in our Constitution and Bill of Rights so that 
these documents might ever bear witness to their intentions.  So many 
occult and mystical symbols are inherent in the beginnings of our country 
that there can be no doubt that it was carefully planned, much as the proud 
parents of a new baby carefully choose their child's name and plan for its 
future welfare.  They, too, wanted their child - the infant Republic - to 
begin with every advantage possible....

Supporting Quotes From The Men Who Began The Great American Experiment


In his "Autobiography," _Thomas Jefferson_ wrote that "An amendment 
was proposed by inserting the words 'Jesus Christ, the holy author of 
our religion,' which was rejected 'by a great majority,' in proof that 
they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew 
and the Gentile, the Christian and the Mohammedan, the Hindoo and the 
Infidel of every denomination." [regarding "A Bill for Establishing Religious 
Freedom,"  known as "The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom," 1779.)

"Say nothing of my religion.  It is known to God and myself alone.  Its 
evidence before the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been 
honest and dutiful to society, the religion which has regulated it 
cannot be a bad one."
-Thomas Jefferson
 Volume II of "Works," published 1904


"The question before the human race is, whether the God of nature shall 
govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule 
it by fictitious miracles?"
-John Adams
 2nd president of the United States
 in a letter to Thomas Jefferson, June 20, 1815


"The religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and 
conscience of every man; it is the right of every man to exercise it as 
these may dictate."
-James Madison
 4th president of the Unied States
 "A Memorial and Remonstrance," 1784


"A religious sect may degenerate into a political faction in one part of 
the Confederacy, but the variety of sects dispersed over the face of it
must secure the national councils against any danger from that source."
-James Madison
 "The Federalist Papers"
