In the last post, I tracked the circle alignment from where it enters Nova Scotia at Cape Sable, and places around the southernmost tip of the Nova Scotia peninsula; up the South Shore through the Port Joli area; Lunenbourg and Mahone Bay, including Oak Island; and places around the Halifax Metropolitan area.
I am picking the alignment in Taylor Head Provincial Park, located southwest of Sheet Harbor, Nova Scotia.
It is touted as one of the most beautiful beaches in Nova Scotia, with beautiful white sand beaches, and walking trails.
When I saw the huge, megalithic-looking stones at Taylor Head pictured on the top, they reminded me of the Hadjar el Gouble, or Stone of the South, at Baalbek in Lebanon, one of the largest, if not the largest, acknowledged stone blocks in the world, on the bottom.
Here are some other photos of what is found at Taylor Head Provincial Park. Nothing to see here, right?
When I saw this particular photo that was taken at Taylor Head on the top left, I was reminded of this photo I took at Lake Arcadia in Edmond, Oklahoma, on the top right; and of what the Gulf of Bothnia looks like between Sweden and Finland here at Pori, Finland on the bottom.
I am going to go ahead an exit Nova Scotia, and follow the alignment where it crosses near the Islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, off the coast of the Canadian Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Interestingly, these two islands are a self-governing territory of France. They are designated together officially as the Overseas Collectivity of St. Pierre and Miquelon.
This is the Coat-of-Arms of St. Pierre and Miquelon. Interesting to note the presence of the Basque flag on the top left, as well as other interesting symbology going on here. The crown definitely looks like it has a nautical theme with what appears to be the frontal view of a ship in-between the sails.
But what looks like the frontal view of a ship on the left, also looks like what is called a Globus Cruciger. Also known as the orb and the cross, it has long been a symbol of Christian authority, and used on coins, iconography, and with a scepter as royal regalia. This is the Danish Globus Cruciger, part of the Danish Crown Regalia, on the right.
This is a 1570 depiction by the Italian painter Titian of Jesus Christ as “Salvator Mundi,” or “Saviour of the World,” a subject in iconography which portrayed Christ with his right hand raised in blessing and his left holding the Globus Cruciger, symbolizing the Earth.
The original meaning of all of this has been quite obscured, and I am just relaying what we are told to explain it.
I think there is much more to the original function of the Globus Cruciger than what I have shared here. Like, that of being a power object in its own right.
On the top left is a land feature off the coast of St. Pierre and Miquelon, compared with a similar one found in the Magdalen Islands further up in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and part of the Province of Quebec, and on the bottom is at Durholaey, the southernmost point in Iceland.
This is an aerial view of the one municipality of Miquelon and Langlade, connected by the Isthmus of Langlade.
This is a close-up of the Isthmus of Langlade on the top left, compared with similar-looking places on Attu, the far western island of the Aleutian chain; Alter do Chao near Santarem in Brazil; and World’s End near Hingham, Massachusetts.
These are the so-called the dunes of Langlade…
…which look like mounds to me, with their smooth and shaped forms.
It is interesting that these two obscure islands are the only remaining part of New France that remains under French control.
The nearby Magdalen Islands, while not under France, are part of Quebec, originally part of New France.
Basque Country in the Pyrenees is split between Spain and France, and includes the small Pyrenees country of Andorra, which is ruled to this day by an unelected Co-Principality between the Catholic Church, in the person of the Bishop of Urguell, and the French President, whoever that may be.
What is it about the Basques?
I personally believe it has something to do with the name of “Magdalen,” the Moors, and the Merovingian bloodlines, the Merovingians being the ruling monarchy of France before being deposed by the Carolingian Dynasty in 751 A.D.
I include the Catalonians of southern Spain and France in this category as well. This was also Cathar country.
This may not resonate with you, but for some reason French rulers and the Catholic Church have been hell-bent on controlling these people and their land, and whatever they represent, for centuries. Besides my opinion, there are persisting oral legends, books that I have read, and symbology that point in this direction. I didn’t have a real opinion about it, however, until I started to do the research for my blog posts.
For example, here is the previously shown Merovingian textile on the top, compared with the symbols in the Cajun flag, seen in the previous post, on the bottom….
From this part of North America, the alignment crosses the Atlantic Ocean, and enters Spain in the city of A Coruna, also known as La Coruna, a city and municipality of Galicia, Spain. It is also the provincial capital of the province of the same name.
Galicia is an autonomous community of Spain, and an historic nationality under Spanish Law as well. Galician is an official language of the region, along with Spanish. The names shown here are given in both Galician and Spanish.
It is considered the seventh Celtic nation, and the least well-known of the group. The other six include Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany in France.
It has its own traditions, including bagpipes and drums…
The Tower of Hercules is called an ancient Roman lighthouse, on what was once called Faro Island, that is 1.5-miles, or 2.4-kilometers, from the center of A Coruna. It is 180-feet, or 55-meters, tall. It is called the oldest Roman lighthouse in use today.
Until the 20th-century, it was called the “Farum Brigantium.”
The word “Farum” is derived from the Greek word “pharos” for the lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This is a 1909 drawing by archeologist Hermann Thiersch.
It was said to be 330-feet, or 100-meters, in overall height.
The Ciudad Vieja, or Old Town, is the oldest part of A Coruna.
This is Castillo de San Anton, said to have been built as a defensive structure between the 15th- and 16-the centuries.
This star fort was built on a small island in the Bay of La Coruna.
The Plaza de Maria Pita is the main plaza of A Coruna, and is the location of the Palacio Municpal, the Town hall and Council building, which is described as truly monumental in its scale and incredibly ornate detailing.
A Coruna is a gateway city for the Camino Ingles, one of a network of pilgrimage routes for the Camino de Santiago, or the way of St. James…
…all leading to where his remains said to be buried at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
Of course, there is the possibility of these pilgrimage routes existing long before St. James, but confirmation of this is very difficult to come by in the written historical narrative. But in the past I have read about ancient pilgrimage routes connected, among other things, to the stars….
I am going to end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Lugo, Spain, in the next post.
