(This is a revised version of Matriotic Musings on Jefferson, Kucinich, and The Divine Feminine, first published on OEN in April, 2004.)
On the anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s death on July 4th, 1826, and upon the sullying of his hallowed Monticello by the visit, today, of the very kind of monarch that Jefferson encouraged us to overthrow, two of his quotes invite reflection:
A little rebellion now and then is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.
I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.
Jefferson, America’s third president, was born April thirteenth, 1743. The number thirteen , associated with the divine feminine, has figured prominently in American symbolism.
In the original flag, the colonies were represented by thirteen stars, forming a circle. Our flag also has thirteen stripes, seven red and six white.
The number thirteen figures prominently on both the obverse and reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, which can be seen on the back of a one dollar bill.
