Antares – The Golden Shot

October 29, 2014

A fortnight after I posted up this

In the north west corner of the first field, on the opposite side of the road from the farm house, is where the Royal Star Antares fell which marked, no doubt, the foundation stone of the whole layout of this nature Zodiac, dating it by the Autumnal Equinox as between 4000 and 2000 B.C. The Stone was probably of the lovely Orange Oolite found here.

Then this happens…


Coincidence, or what?

Antares is the brightest star in the constellation, Scorpio and is known as ‘the heart of the scorpion’.  Hornblotton Church is situated in the Scorpio figure of the Glastobury Zodiac, which Katharine Maltwood writes of above.  Looks like they’ve really blown it.
