June 24th is Midsummer, the celebration of the summer solstice (longest day of the year), the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist (Mercury-Hermes, the Lord of Summer), Freemasonry’s Birthday (June 24th, 1717) and currently (2022) a fantastic astronomical alignment in the morning, eastern horizon (visible to the end of the month).

Da Vinci paints St. John the Baptist (ca. 1513) as Hermes or Mercury (qua the Hermetic, Alchemical androgyne), the divine messenger.

It is only apropos that the latest biopic about Elvis Presley (1935-1977), the Apollonian sun god, will be released on June 24th. That is midsummer, the feast day of the Baptizer (aka John the Baptist, the Lord of Summer), three days after the summer solstice, the apex of the sun in the northern hemisphere, and the birthday of modern-day Freemasonry. As above, so below as they say, so inscribed of the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus. Coming soon: Cinema Symbolism 4.
