Yes sheila, I haven't notice it in the heat of the moment.
The Red HAIRED
Shepherd is ARCTURUS in the constellation Bootes. He looks around at his mother CALLISTO (the daughter of Lycaon, king of ARCADIA
whom ZEUS turned into a bear and threw into the sky to become URSA MAJOR.
Hesiod had told it:
...but afterwards, when she was already with child, was seen bathing and so discovered. Upon this, the goddess was enraged and changed her into a beast. Thus she became a bear and gave birth to a son called ARCAS.
The name ARCTURUS literally means BEAR WATCHER. They observe a tomb that was reproduced close to a place whose Occitan name is ARCAS
and close to the Paris Meridian.
ARCTURUS (Alpha Bootis). Among the very brightest of stars, shining with a soft orange light, Arcturus lights northern spring skies. It is one of three luminaries that partition the northern sky into very rough thirds, the others being summer's Vega and winter's Capella. Of the three, Arcturus, the Alpha star of the constellation Bootes, the Herdsman, is slightly the brighter, making it the brightest star of the northern hemisphere and the fourth brightest star of the entire sky, following only Sirius, Canopus, and Alpha Centauri. Arcturus, the "Bear Watcher," follows Ursa Major, the Great Bear, around the pole, "arktos" being the Greek name for "bear," from which our word "arctic" is derived by reference with the constellation of the Greater Bear. Arcturus is located at a distance of 37 light years, and became famous when its light was used to open the 1933 world's fair in Chicago, as that light had left the star at about the time of the previous Chicago fair in 1893. It is a classic orange class K (K1) giant star with a precisely defined surface temperature of 4290 degrees Kelvin. To the eye, it shines 113 times more brightly than our Sun. Its lower temperature, however, causes it to radiate considerable energy in the infrared. When this infrared radiation is taken into account, Arcturus actually shines almost twice as brightly, releasing 215 times more radiation than our Sun, from which we find a diameter 26 times solar, about a quarter the size of Mercury's orbit. Arcturus is close and large enough so that its angular diameter of 0.0210 seconds of arc can easily be measured, leading to a very similar direct determination of 25 times the solar dimension and providing nice confirmation of stellar parameters. Arcturus has a velocity relative to the Sun that is higher than other bright stars. Compared with the set of surrounding stars, which orbit the Galaxy on more or less circular orbits, it falls behind by about 100 kilometers per second (as do several others of the "Arcturus Group"). The lagging movement has long suggested that the star comes from an older population of the Galaxy. Consistently, it is somewhat deficient in metals, having only about 20 percent as much iron relative to hydrogen as found in the Sun. A more intriguing suggestion is that the star actually comes to us from a small galaxy that merged with ours some 5 to 8 billion years ago. As a giant, weighing in at around 1.5 times the mass of the Sun, it has ceased the fusion of hydrogen in its core. Though it is somewhat brighter than we would expect for a stable helium fusing star, helium fusion to carbon has probably already begun. Such stars are not expected to have magnetic activity like the Sun, but very weak X-ray emission suggests that Arcturus indeed is magnetically active and has a hard-to-observe "buried corona."
Notice that the Red Shepherd has a crown on his head. He has his foot on Mons Maenalus, a mountain in ARCADIA.Arcturus points at SPICA the star used to mark the Meridian.
The Dagobert parchment has the word SPICA right at the centre of the irregular pentacle.

WEEPING OVER A BROKEN PILLAR
NOTRE DAME DES CROSS
Drawing by Jeremy Ladd CROSS
33° Scottish Rite Freemason.
De celle que je désirais libérer, montaient vers moi les ef-
fluves du parfum qui imprégnèrent le sépulchre. Jadis les uns l'avaient
nommée : ISIS, reine des sources bienfaisantes, VENEZ A MOI VOUS TOUS
QUI SOUFFREZ ET QUI ETES ACCABLES ET JE VOUS SOULAGERAI, d'autres :
MADELAINE, au célèbre vase plein d'un baume guérisseur. Les initiés
savent son nom véritable : NOTRE DAME DES CROSS.
Notice that the word CROSS is in English.
I am aware of the scent of the perfume which impregnates the sepulchre of the one I must release. Long ago her name was ISIS, Queen of the benevolent springs, COME TO ME ALL YOU WHO LABOUR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST. Others knew her as MAGDALENE with the celebrated vase full of healing balm. The initiates know her to be NOTRE DAME DES CROSS.
Remember that Sauniere found his parchments in a BROKEN PILLAR.
Or so we've been told.The broken pillar is from SOLOMON's Temple.
In the background a walled city. - Sion or La Cité Sainte
as in Beinfaisants de la Cité Sainte. http://www.gnostique.net/initiation/RER.htm
C.B.C.S. The mother Lodge of France which is comprised of PRIORIES. i.e. A Priory of la Cité Sainte - A Priory of Sion.
SOL OM ON - Three names for the Sun. SOLOMON's Temple is the Temple of the Sun.
And remember that the Order of the Solar Temple
(OTS) once tried to buy the VIlla Bethania.
After this reformation, Willermoz decided that it would be right to expand this revision into the bosom of the Mother branch of the German Strict Observance. It was with this initiative in mind, that he went to the Convent of Wilhemsbad in 1782. He found supporters of his plan in the Princes Ferdinand of Brunswick and Charles of Hesse, but found stiff opposition on the part of the Illuminati of Bavaria (founded by Adam Weishaupt) and met hostility in the character of Francois de Chefdebien de Saint-Amand, representative of the Order of the Pilalethes, as well as resistance from Savalette de Lange. After heated arguments, Willermoz and his supporters won the day, and succeeded in having the title of C.B.C.S. adopted by all members of the Inner Order.
