The phrase Novus ordo seclorum Latin for “New order of the ages” is on the back of the US dollar and the back of the Great Seal of the United States.

The term comes from the fourth Eclogue of Virgil,

:Ultima Cumaei venit iam carminis aeta The ultimate in propheces, comes from the Cumaean Sibyl‘s song;
magnus ab integro saeclorum nascitur ordo. The great order of the ages is born anew.
Iam redit et virgo, redeunt Saturnia regna: Now, Virgo (Lady Justice / Astraea) returns, thus returns Saturn’s reign.
iam nova progenies caelo delabitur alto. Now, a new age of man descends from the heavens.

I’m back rewriting the scene containing Nemesis (Lady Justice, Virgo+Libra, Astraea). I can go on and on with names, but this myth dates back to when Inanna stole the rule (the Mes) from Enki. The astrological signs Virgo and Libra factor into this myth. Nemesis, the goddess, is the nemesis of pride (Satan); she brings balance.
