History of the Order of the Eastern Star

Leo Lyon Zagami was, until recently, a high level member of
the Italian Illuminati, a 33rd degree Freemason, a true insider and a
high-member of the infamous Freemasonic P2 Lodge. He was the "prince",
prepared to take over after the older Illuminati "king", Licio Gelli. He is
of Illuminati aristocrat bloodline and therefore involved in the Illuminati
Order since childhood.
However, Leo decided he'd had enough of all the evil he was
exposed to, and a part of, and the horrifying Satanic, black
magic rituals, mind control and torture that was going on inside
the lodges, behind closed doors. So he left everything and fled
to Norway, where he is
currently residing. Since he left, he's been harassed and
tortured and had his life threatened.
He realized that the only way to hopefully stay alive is to
expose to the world what he knows and make himself known.
History shows that this is one of the best ways to survive,
although nothing is for certain. Leo quickly started this
website, Illuminati Confessions, where he reveals the secrets to
the world, one by one. I strongly advise you to check it out and
download it to your computer, in case they decide to silence him
for good, and this website will be shut down. There is a lot of
extremely important information here, and much of it can't be
found anywhere else. Leo has also been a guest several times at
Greg Szymanski's radio show.
Don't forget to check out Leo's exclusive
website, where he exposes the Illuminati like no one has before:
he Order of the Eastern Star is according to
its own literature, '...the largest fraternal organization in
the world (it is American but there are chapters in Italy, Saudi
Arabia, Romania, Germany, Australia, Brazil, China and the
Philippines) to which both men and women belong.
The Order of the Eastern Star is an adoptive rite of Freemasonry
with teachings based on the Bible and objectives that are
officially charitable and benevolent but in reality serving the
evil purpose of the illuminati. The founder of OES was Dr.
Robert Morris, a high degree Freemason, a lawyer and an educator
from Boston, Massachusetts, who was a Master Mason and Past
Grand Master of Kentucky. Dr. Morris intended his creation to
become a female branch of Freemasonry, but he failed to overcome
the great opposition this idea engendered. After his first
published ritual in 1849-50, he became associated with Robert Macoy who wrote and published a ritual based on Morris' in 1867.
The first Grand Chapter was organized in Michigan in the same
year. (There is evidence for an organization of the same name
founded variously in 1788 or 1793, but this group was defunct by
(local) chapters operate under charter from state level grand
chapters which are responsible to the General Grand Chapter at
the International Eastern Star Temple in Washington, D.C.
Members must be eighteen years or older and either Master Masons
in good standing or properly related to a Master Mason in good
standing. The latter category includes wives; widows; sisters;
daughters; mothers; granddaughters; step-mothers; step
daughters; step-sisters; and half-sisters. In 1994 this was
expanded to include nieces, daughters-in- law, and grandmothers.
Each chapter has eighteen officers, some elected and others
appointed. Two offices are specifically male (Patron and
Associate Patron) while nine offices are specifically female
(including Matron and Associate Matron). While the Worthy Matron
is considered to be the presiding officer of the chapter, the
degrees cannot be conferred without a presiding brother in good
standing (hence the Patron and Associate Patron).
Each chapter retains the right to decide who shall be a member
of the organization. Election to the degrees must be unanimous,
without debate, and secret. The successful candidate must
profess a belief in a Supreme Being and is initiated in five
degrees, which are conferred in one ceremony. (When Eastern Star
was created, it was intended to be the first of a three degree
series. The second and third degrees were Queen of the South and
the Order of the Amaranth,
Interestingly enough, OES requires only the belief in a Supreme
Being even though the degrees are based in both the Old and New
Testaments. While non-Christians are not specifically barred
from membership, it would seem to be difficult to be other than
Christian and belong to the Order.
Origin and History of the Adoptive Rite Among Black Women
Researched, compiled and written by
Past Grand Worthy Matron Jessie Mae Ayers
Past Grand Worthy Matron Jessie M. Ayers is a member of Miriam
Chapter No. 4,
Order of the Eastern Star, Georgiana Thomas Grand Chapter,
Jurisdiction of the
District of Columbia. She served as Grand Worthy matron in 1989
as was Grand
Historian of the Georgiana Thomas Grand Chapter from 1971-1991.
On August 10, 1874, Thornton Andrew Jackson received the several
degrees of the Rite of Adoption of the Order of the Eastern Star
from Brother C.B. Case, a Deputy and agent of Illustrious Robert
Macoy 33, Supreme Patron of the Rite of Adoption of the World.
In addition, Thornton Jackson also received a letter from Bro.
C. B. Case granting him the authority to establish chapters of
the Eastern Star among eligible black women. In obedience to the
authority granted by William H. Myers, Grand Master, Union Grand
Lodge, Jurisdiction of the District of Columbia, Bro. Jackson
established the first Eastern Star Chapter among black women in
the United States.
On December 1, 1874, Queen Esther Chapter No. 1, Order of the
Eastern Star, was established at 708 - O Street, N.W.,
Washington, D.C. in the home of Mrs.
Georgiana Thomas. The first Worthy Matron was Sister Martha
Welch and the first Worthy Patron was Bro.
Thornton A. Jackson.
In December 1874, Grand Master William H. Myers and Deputy Grand
Master William A. Tallaferro, Union Grand Lodge, Jurisdiction of
the District of Columbia, were invited to receive the
androgynous degrees. They both accepted, thus further cementing
the ties that bind the Masonic Family together. Upon the
occasion of Grand Master Myers' initiation into the Adoptive
Rite, he made the following statement to the sisters of Queen
Esther Chapter No. 1 - extolling them to
"May the dove of peace hover over you. May the All Seeing Eye,
whom the Sun, Moon and Stars obey ever watch over you. May he
keep and protect you in your every effort to promote interest in
the general good of this chapter".
On April 28, 1890, Queen of Sheba Chapter No. 3 and on October
20, 1890, Gethsemane Chapter No. 4, Order of the Eastern Star,
were established by Thornton A.
Jackson within the Jurisdiction of the District of Columbia. He
instrumental and helped to establish one (1) chapter in
Alexandria, Virginia, three (3) chapters in Maryland and three
chapters in Pennsylvania. In each instance when a chapter was
organized and established, it was adopted by a regularly
constituted Masonic Lodge. Thus, Brother Jackson was able to
bring about more unity within the Masonic Family.
During the year 1875, Pythagoras Lodge No. 9 presented the
officers of Queen Esther Chapter No. 1 with their first badges
which were known as Rosettes. This presentation was made by
Worthy Patron Thornton A.
Jackson who wished the chapter success and prosperity in the
work upon which they were entering. He admonished the officers
to wear the Rosettes with dignity keeping ever before them the
memory of the five (5) Heronines: Adah, Ruth, Esther, Martha and
Electa. In closing, Brother Jackson stated "To you Queen Esther
and Associates, the representatives of the rays of the Beautiful
Star and from whom comes the most charming, the most prophetic
and the most instructive lessons of the Old and New Testaments.
May you always throw an air of beauty and solemnity around all
that you bring thousands to worship Him." This has been our
charge as bona fide members of the Order of Eastern Stars from
1875 to this present moment in time.
And so it was one hundred years after the founding of the first
Black Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, Queen Esther Chapter
No. 1, Order of the Eastern Star, was officially instituted in
the City of Washington in the District of Columbia.
