The phallus of Osiris in Hollywood?

The phallus of Osiris in Hollywood?

Some stories are weirder than anything Hollywood screenwriters could come up with. But then, facts are often stranger than fiction! How would you react if you were told that the phallus of the Egyptian god Osiris is possibly located underneath a buried pyramid in the very centre of Hollywood – Los Angeles? Doesn’t this sound like something from a movie? Well, it isn’t.
The site where Osiris’ phallus is supposedly buried is known as the Hollywood Cross, which sits on a small hill next to Interstate 101, at Cahuenga. The site is notorious as the cross can clearly be seen from the 101, especially at night, when it is illuminated and sometimes – depending on visibility – seems to be suspended in mid air. From the Hollywood & Highland Center, with its viewing platform designed to give visitors a good view of the Hollywood sign, the sign is visible sitting to the lower left of this iconic view.
So, how could a legendary Egyptian artefact ever end up underneath a completely naturally looking hill in the very heart of lala-land, correct? It seems absurd, impossible, as the Ancient Egyptians according to all historical accounts never made it to America, let alone the “far side” of America. But however illogical it seems, this was nevertheless the total conviction of one of the greatest astrologers of the 20th century, Linda Goodman, who spent a small fortune in trying to prove her case.
