September 21st: The Arch’s Last Day of Illumination in Arona.

​It seems that the last day they will be showcasing and “illuminating” the Arch in Arona will be on September 21st (this may be the end of the 3rd stage of lighting it also). Funny isn’t it, after everything I have written on the Arch. It started on a Tuesday (3rd day) and ends on the literal 3rd day. It also ends on the first day of the Jewish new year 5778. I had a feeling that they would end the Arch around there occultic day of 9/23 and they may be. And notice that these 3 color changes that start August 24th all happen on Thursdays, which happens to represent Jupiter. Let’s have a refresher on what Thursday means.

“In most Romance languages, the day is named after the Roman god Jupiter, who was the god of sky and thunder. In Latin, the day was known as Iovis Dies, “Jupiter’s Day”. In Latin, the genitive or possessive case of Jupiter was Iovis/Jovis and thus in most Romance languages it became the word for Thursday: Italian giovedì, Spanish jueves, French jeudi, Sardinian jòvia, Catalan dijous, Galician “xoves” and Romanian joi. This is also reflected in the p-Celtic Welsh dydd Iau. The astrological and astronomical sign of the planet Jupiter (♃) is sometimes used to represent Thursday.” (

wrote something just recently that connected the 8/21/17 eclipse to this so called “black star or black sun“. I suggest you read both of these articles to see where this could be heading. This seems to be connected to the Magnum Opus of Alchemy. Today we see that there are 3 stages (nigredo, albedo and rubedo) to this “awakening” in Alchemy but originally there were 4 stages:

nigredo, a blackening or melanosis (chaos and spiritual death; raven.)

albedo, a whitening or leucosis (purification; dove.)

Notice the Arch in the background

citrinitas, a yellowing or xanthosis (“transmutation of silver into gold” or “yellowing of the lunar consciousness.”)

rubedo, a reddening, purpling, or iosis (representing gold, the philosophers stone and the Phoenix rising out of the ashes ie nigredo.)

I am wondering if these modern day occultic Alchemists are still seeing these ancient 4 stages of a modern Magnum Opus in the near future? Is the first stage, nigredo happening on the eclipse of 8/21 and then so on until September 21st when their symbolic Pheonix rises?  Will the next three stages correspond with the dates the Arch changes color? I guess we will have to wait and see.

Below is the screenshot of the Mayor of Arona’s translation along with the original in Italian.



Dopo la conclusione dello spettacolo di luci e musiche che, dal 29 aprile ogni sera ha affascinato il numeroso pubblico, la riproduzione 3D dell’Arco di Palmira esposta ad Arona ci riserva ancora delle novità. 

Grazie ad uno sponsor, Easyway sas, service audio video luci di Baveno, ed al light designer Andrea Palamara l’Arco offrirà ancora piacevoli suggestioni ai visitatori. 

La nuova illuminazione notturna consente di valorizzare appieno le caratteristiche dell’Arco, non solo, ogni 2 settimane circa l’illuminazione cambierà colore. 

La nuova scenografia luminosa sarà senza dubbio occasione per garantire scenari diversi ai già numerosissimi selfie che i visitatori non si sono fatti mancare.

Anzi, invito tutti a ritrarsi o ritrarre i propri amici sotto l’arco, non solo come ricordo di una gita o di una piacevole giornata ma a sostegno dei valori di pace e valorizzazione del patrimonio culturale che la riproduzione dell’arco rappresenta:


Di seguito il calendario dei cambi di colore della scenografia:

Giovedì 24 agosto 1° cambio

Giovedì 7 settembre 2° cambio

Giovedì 21 settembre 3° cambio
