You can't translate the writing.
You have not got the evidence.
But what you are doing is pushing the pressure on critical research whereas the burden of proof lies with you - you are the one making the claims.
I can translate the writing, they're Runes as Roger pointed out they're from Sweden. If you had clicked on the picture you would have been taken to a website which explained all.
Not only didn't you click on the picture you didn't click on the phrase POUSSIN TENIERS GUARD THE KEY
If you had you would have been linked to the Clavicula Salomonis. The KEY of Solomon.
The Clavicula Salomonis was translated by Liddell MacGregor Mathers, William Robert Woodman and Dr Wynn Westcott who were all members of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (SRIA) – founded in 1860 by freemason R.W.Little. The SRIA was the first modern Rosicrucian movement who included other members such as John Yarker, P.B. Randolph, E Bulwer-Lytton, A.L. Constante (Eliphas Levi), Theodor Reuss, Kenneth Mackenzie, Frederick Hockley. Worthy of mention in this context is a group which sprang from the SRIA called the Corona Fellowship of Rosicrucians – OTRC. One member of this group Frater Aurelius founded the modern witch movement called Wicca
Another group springing from this was the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn who left their calling card on the Sauniere Parchments and very possibly in Sauniere's church.
Basically the problem is that you are looking for evidence that you can understand. This doesn't mean that this has never been written down. I have no need to convince you, you must look for yourself.
Oh and before you think you can guess at my beliefs and put two and two together and make six (like yer do), I am very very very interested in the people
who do this stuff, I am not in any way interested in the stuff itself.
But here is some of that STUFF

Well done Roscoe, you are very, very close.
But... You seem to be delving into occultism - what is written by the groups, rather than trying to find what is hidden - the occult. Are you sure this will not lead you astray? Is for instance the writing known as The Key of Solomon really what is refered to in the clue?
The people you mention were not interested in the occult simply to regain lost knowledge. They were interested in the aquisition of power, and self-agrandisement. It could be said they were led astray on many levels.
However... You are spot-on with many things. Celtic mythology will start to play a far greater part in this mystery. Those who understand the concepts described by Robert Graves in The White Goddess will be able to cut through the undergrowth. The Golden Bough is useful as a primer only.
As to astrology, maybe it is best described as the illustrations to the book of mythology. We will see more shortly.
Your deduction that writing can be formed from any set of geometric forms, and that consequently any geometric construct can be used to pass on information once the language is understood was masterful - and naturally went right over M Norton's head. That is
what you were saying wasn't it?
Maybe we should all bear in mind the reason for our quest.
We are trying to find something lost. A great treasure. Something lost so long ago that the truth of what it is, or even the fact that it exists at all, is itself lost.
We have clues that we are not sure are genuine or if they are accurate. They are so cryptic and deep that they seem to involve the very deepest levels of man's understanding of his religious past, going so far back as to be lost in mythology and astrology.
Normally, it is at a time like this that we would return to the primary source, the original writing from which all else stems. Until now we have had to assume that this does not exist, that it too is lost in the mists of time.
That may not necessarily be true.
I am about to post again in the Mother Goose thread. You should find it very interesting.
