The Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis and the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The premise of this study centers on the Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ, that occurred from April 28th to June 10th, including the first Pentecost and birth of the Church of the body of Christ, on June 20th of 28 AD. Christ at a central point in all history is even recognized by the secular world, when time reckoning changed shortly after Christ’s birth, from BC to AD. Many times in Biblical Astronomy the location of the King planetJupiter plays a key role, and during this time in 28 AD, the King planet was found in Capricornus, at this time when our Lord finished the work of his earthly ministry. On April 24th, 28 AD, Jupiter was in conjunction with the star Deneb Al Gedi in the fish-tail of Capricornus.

A key related point is that April 24th on the calendar of the Hebrews was Aviv 10, which was also
the day the Passover Lambs were selected, [Ex. 12:3]. The meaning of Deneb Al Gedi is the sacrifice cometh, which is fitting since that same day, on Aviv 10 Jesus entered Jerusalem riding a donkey as the perfect sacrifice to redeem all mankind, [Matt. 21:1-11, Zech. 9:9]. 2

As we view the Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis in Figure 1 below, it is noteworthy that this axis is some of the strongest evidence that we will find regarding the Gospel in the Stars. This axis is a core proof that embodies the persistent hope of mankind in the Coming Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Genesis 3:15 is the 1st Messianic prophecy in God’s Word, making it a key reference, worthy of a closer look as a foundation to the Gospel in the Stars. What is fascinating about the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis is the events of the Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension of Christ are depicted in the context of this axis, unifying the witness of the Gospel in the Stars in a unique and powerful portrayal. As we notice the details of this axis, we find a consistent theme in the decans and constellations that it intersects as it traverses the planisphere. The primary constellation that sets the pattern of Gen. 3:15 in the Celestial Gospel is Scorpius, the scorpion. The main theme marked in this sign, and the object of the Scorpion’s stinger is the Man Ophiuchus’ heel. We see it first in Fig. 4 in the Heel of Ophiuchus, a main decan of Scorpius, which in Hebrew is called Akrab, meaning conflict or war. 3 A key point with how this star picture captures this scene from Gen. 3:15 is, that as the enemy bruises the Man’s heel with short-term sufferings, the Man with his other foot, annihilates the enemy’s head with a fatal blow, [Ps. 91:13]. This theme is picked up and followed in the heel of Hercules, seen bent as kneeling, in Fig. 5 while his other foot crushes the head of Draco the dragon at the North Pole. This is evidenced in the precession of the poles as the former pole star Thuban in the tail of Draco, transitions to Al Ruccaba/Polaris in Ursa Minor, in Fig. 6 we find the current Pole star under and between the feet of Cepheus the Crowned King at the right hand of the Almighty, Fig. 7. A key point to realize is that due to the precession of the poles this alignment of heel signs has not always been the case as it is now, in the end times. Here we see evidence of Christ’s Resurrection and Ascension, where Jesus Christ is enthroned at the right Hand of God. The Christian Church is not referenced in God’s Word until the first Day of Pentecost, being part of The Great Mystery, [Eph. 1:9-14, 3:1-7], that began on the first Day of Pentecost with the birth of Christ’s spiritual body of his Church, June 20th of 28 AD. Ever since then Christian believer’s have been able to walk in their spiritual power base seen in Eph. 1 below;

Ephesians 1:19-23
20. Which He wrought in Christ when He raised him from the dead and set him at His own right hand in the heavenly places. 21 Far above all principality and power, and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be Head over all things to the church. 23 Which is his body, the fullness of him which filleth all in all.

Gen. 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Here we have a reference to the spiritual battle between light and darkness, embodied between the serpent and its seed, versus the Woman with her seed. God is telling the serpent that the seed of the woman, who is Jesus Christ would bruise the serpent’s head, indicative of the fatal blow that Christ inflicts on the enemy, as opposed to the scorpion stinging Christ’s heel, showing Christ’s sacrifice, as short-term sufferings that freed all mankind from the serpent’s curse. The Figure 4 enlargement of Ophiuchus wrestling the serpent for Corona-the Crown of Dominion below, while the Scorpion stings his heel, reveals how our spiritual adversary, shown as a serpent works through his seed-the scorpion, in conflict with the man, fitting the three Scriptural elements of the star picture; the Man vs. the Serpent and its Scorpion-seed. In Hebrew the Scorpion is Akrab, meaning war or conflictagainst the Man, for dominion over Creation. The Church of the body of Christ is already walking in this victorious power, as the entire kingdom of the serpent and his seed is under our feet, in Christ. We must recognize this unalterable victory as a past tense reality, we only need to stand on the truth of God’s Word to reap the full benefits of this eternal victory, both in this world, and the coming one.

This story from Gen. 3 is depicted in astonishingly powerful ways in the Gospel in the Stars, as seen in the truths the stellar axis brings to light as it intersects stars across the heavens below.

Figure 3. Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis. 

This “Genesis 3:15 axis” extends through the North pole intersecting a number of constellations and notable decans that relate aspects of the Genesis 3:15, theme from various teaching perspectives. Starting at the bottom of the planisphere, we find the Scorpion constellationScorpius, whose prominent tail stinger is positioned under the heel of Ophiuchus the Serpent-bearer constellation, who is engaged in a struggle with the serpent-Serpens. The axis intersects the star in Ophiuchusheel, called Saiph, in the LXX Greek meaning “bruised.”4 This is the same Greek word found in Gen. 3:15 forbruised,while Ophiuchus’ other leg is poised over the head of the Scorpion, striking his fatal blow as he crushes the enemy. We find further evidence in the lunar signs on the evening of Wednesday, April 28th, after Christ was crucified. During this evening the 1st Full Moon following the Spring Equinox, in 28 AD, the Moon passed over Ophiuchus’ foot-the Man who had just laid down his life, by shedding his sinless blood to redeem all mankind, to fulfill this part of the Messianic Prophecy of Genesis 3:15. This Paschal Moon seen from Jerusalem rose about 7:16 pm, and set about 6:15 am Jerusalem standard time, the eve of April 28th and morning of the 29th of April, 28 AD. 5

Plate 1. Path of Mars from March 1 to June 10, 28 A.D. 6

Another aspect of this Gen. 3:15 prophecy is established in the movement of the Red Planet Mars during the time, from March 1st to June 10th, 28 AD. The motion of Mars was directed initially towards the wounded foot of Ophiuchus like the Moon, but stops to initiate a retrograde motion before reaching his foot. In its retrograde motion, Mar’s path was altered towards the Scorpion’s head, reaching the center of the Scorpion’s head and stopping on June 10th, 28 AD, to resume its normal motion. The green dots on Mars’ path above represent 5-day increments, showing about 100 days from March 1st-June 10th, 28 AD. As Mars veers away from Ophiuchus’ wounded foot towards the other foot crushing the Scorpion’s head, the leg reflected in the green stars Phi, Chi, & Psi Ophiuchi, it appears Mars-Michael the warrior Archangel wanted to get in on some of the action of bloodying the enemy and crushing his head with a grinding motion. This is key  since June 10th was also the day of Christ’s Ascension, the day of THE decisive blow to the head of the enemy in the spiritual war of the ages, as his enemies became a resting place under his feet, as seen below in Cepheus the Crowned King in Fig. 7; [Ps. 110:1, Heb. 10:12-13]. 7

The Red Planet Mars also embodying the atoning blood of Christ, stopped for 10 days waiting until the day of Pentecost, and the birth of the Church of the Body of Christ, when the Comforter, the gift of holy spirit was poured out, and the Apostles first spoke in tongues, with millions more sharing in the New Birth over the last 2000 years, [Acts 2:1-ff.]. Can you imagine what the head of the enemy looks like after Mars ground in our Lord’s victory for 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost? Talk about ugly, WOW!! When the Heavenly Father finally revealed the Great Mystery ambush He pulled on the Adversary in the Lord Jesus Christ, He left us a great example of what we should be doing to any enemy who dares to mess with us-in Christ, as we do exploits in our victory stand in the spiritual riches of Pentecost.

As this axis extends through the next sign, we find it intersecting the decan of Scorpius called Hercules, whose foot is placed above the Head of Draco the serpentdragon at the North pole. The axis runs between the two heads of Hercules and Ophiuchus, who are aligned, but inverted to each other. The star in Hercules head is called Ras Al Gethi, meaning the head of him who bruises, keeping with the Gen. 3:15 themeAs this axis extends down to Hercules’ left foot, it shows the result of Ophiuchusbattle with the Serpent, since Hercules left foot crushes the Dragon’s head, seen in Fig. 5destroying the devil’s works. As Hercules is kneeling, his right heel is lifted up as if wounded, in some star maps with a spear through his heel. [Rev. 12:9-10, Ps. 74:12-14]

Figure 5. Hercules’ foot over the Dragon crushing it’s Head. 10

The Fourth Star-family - Part 3

As a result of Draco the Dragon’s head being crushed with a fatal blow to the star Rastaban-meaning the head of the subtle, from the descending foot of Hercules, the Dragon’s former position as the Covering Archangel over the all the angelic choirs of heaven [Ezek. 28:12-19] was stripped from him forever and his position embodied in the ancient North Pole is superseded by Jesus Christ, the Risen Morning Star in place of the fallen Morning Star, [Isa. 14:12]. Figure 5 above shows the star Thuban-the subtle as the former Northern Pole star, as the central star in the heavens around which all other denizens of the universe revolve. A detailed graphic of Draco at the North Pole including the relationship of the current pole star in Ursa Minor is seen in Figure 6 below.

Figure 6. Draco and Cepheus above Ursa Minor at the North Pole.


The 3rd decan referred to above is Draco the dragon, with Hercules’ Foot above its head, inside the top circle of the Northern Polar Venn Diagram. This is pictured astronomically as the dynamic equatorial pole slowly moves around the static pole of the ecliptic, at the center of the upper circle. The common area between these overlapping polar wheels is called a vesica of the Venn Diagram. This gives us a viewpoint of the precession of the poles, as the equatorial pole shifted from Thuban, in Draco’s tail to Polaris of Ursa Minor over the past 5000 years. This fulfills the promise of the coming redeemer, as our Gen. 3:15 axis passed through the current pole star Polaris, seen under the feet of Cepheus, the Crowned King, [Eph. 1:20-22]. This celestial image of the King of kings is realized and fulfilled in Christ Jesus, who now presides over the central star of the heavens, formerly under the Dragon’s dominion. Inside the Polar circle, vesica we find a triangle that encloses the Little Bear of Ursa Minor. The Triangle consists of the Ecliptical pole at the center of this upper circle, along with two pole stars. One is Thuban the former pole star in the Dragon’s tail on the circle’s perimeter at the upper right corner, and the other is the current pole star Polaris, at the lower-left corner, of the triangle’s base. As we find in Figure 7 below, the Pole star marked Al Ruccabais under the foot of Cepheus, at the end of the little bear’s tail meaning “the Branch,”11 exerting his authority as four-fold power as King, Servant, Son of Man, and Son of God, over all Creation. Thus the serpent’s destruction, is not only seen in the crushing fatal blow to the serpent’s head, but also is witnessed in the outcome of Ophiuchus’ struggle with the serpent for the Crown [Corona in Fig. 4] of Dominion.

Figure 7. Cepheus the Crowned King. 12

Once again we find the common thread of truth running through this Gen. 3:15 Axis, because in the knee of the leg over Polaris, we have the starAl Rai, which means “he who bruises or breaks,13 since it is the man Jesus Christ as King Cepheus, crowned with the crown of Dominion who ultimately breaks the serpent and destroys it. This name Al Rai also mirrors Rigel in Orion that matches with Cepheus, just like the star Saiph matches Orion with Ophiuchus on both ends of this axis! This is by design of the Almighty, who named these stars, and aligned them to tell the divine story of Christ’s Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension we are witnessing in the Gospel of the Stars right now! The Heavenly Father has watermarked His narrative both in Scripture and Written in the Stars, with the same divine inspiration that proves the Star Gospel emerged from the same Almighty Source of undeniable truth. This signature of the Almighty on His handiwork is all the proof required to show the genuine validity of the Hand of the Almighty underwriting the Celestial Gospel. Just as the divine words of Scripture perfectly agree in their witness relating this stellar narrative of the Ages, so the Star Gospel agrees with God’s Written Word on these key details.

The next decan highlighted by our Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis, is Auriga, as seen below in Figure 8. Our axis touches the point where the large horn of Taurus, the onrushing Bull pierces the heel of our Shepherd-Auriga. In keeping with the Gen. 3:15 theme, as we have found with all the signs and decans our axis marks, here the Bull’s horn strikes the heel of Auriga’s right foot, at the star named Al Nath, meaning the wounded or slain. 14

Figure 8. Auriga The Shepherd. 15

See the source image

Bullinger says; “He is the Good Shepherd who gave his life for the Sheep, [Jn. 10:11], the Great Shepherd who was resurrected from the dead, [Heb. 13:20] and now the Cheif Shepherd, [I Pet. 5:4] seen in the day of his coming glory.” 16 Auriga depicts a scene of the exalted, mighty Savior, exercising his loving mercy and salvation in the midst of the scenes of judgment, just as the Scriptures tell us that in the midst of wrath he remembers mercy. (Hab. 3:2)

Auriga contains the sixth brightest star in the sky: Capella, the goat star, the chief star in this decan means “She-goat,17 and marks the heart of the mother goat. She and her kids are safe in the arms of the Shepherd. Here we see the Shepherd ruling in his authority, rescuing his own from evil, gathering and protecting as a Shepherd. With our Gen. 3:15 axis closely by-passing Capella before reaching the tip of the bull’s horn piercing his heelAuriga sits astride the Milky Way, symbolic of Jesus Christ, not only as the lamb of God, but as the Lion who comes again executing Judgment against the evil-doers.

If we now look at the other end of the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis, we find amazingly that it intersects Orion, specifically at the star in Orion’s foot named Rigel, 18 meaning “the foot that crushes,” which is fitting since it’s pictured crushing the enemy. The main star in Orion’s other leg incredibly is “Saiph” the same word for “bruised we saw in Ophiuchus found in Gen. 3:15! Not only do we find both ends of this amazing Planisphere axis agreeing with the same star name tied to Gen. 3:15, but before the axis reaches Orion’s foot, it intersects the bright star in Orion’s shoulder called Bellatrix, meaning “swiftly destroying,” in reference to the swift destruction of the enemy at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. 19

The name Orion appears three times in the Bible (Job 9:938:31Amos 5:8). Rolleston rightly noted that Kesil is the Hebrew word translated as “Orion” in all three uses (Rolleston 1865, part 2, p. 30). “Rolleston viewed Orion as a type of Christ. Part of this came from the name Orion.” The meaning and source of this name is obscure, but, as R.A. Allen says (1963, p. 304), 20 it is rooted in Akkadian, and means “Light of Heaven,” an apparent appeal to Matthew 4:16 on Rolleston’s part.”21  We are more concerned with the star lore from a biblical or Hebraic perspective, although ancient Egyptian myth has proven to hold many of the celestial gospel themes in their original star names and decans. Many of these themes survived the idolatrous corruption of myths linked to the Solar cult of RA and Pharaoh’s ties to it, so that some ancient truths of the Gospel
in the Stars still live, for example in the Dendera Zodiac, in the Coma decan prior to its Greek corruption in Coma Berniece’s, and the Hare underfoot of Orion as noted below.

Figure 9. The decan of Orion, with his foot over the Hare initiating the River of Judgement. 22See the source image

The original meaning of Orion is “coming forth as light.” The same word is used in Genesis. 1:17 and Isa. 60:1, referring to the light of the celestial luminaries.

Job 38:31-33

31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? 32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? 33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the Earth?

Francis Rolleston was an early adopter of the idea that the Gospel in the Stars narrated the path of Christ on the ecliptic-or path of the Sun through the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth, as we find in Job 38 above and the 19th Psalm. This sets the pattern that as Jesus Christ is found between, not only the alpha and omega signs of the Great SphinxVirgo and Leo the Lion, but also Ophiuchus and Orion at both ends of the Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis. We can see the obvious parallels in this stellar map of Gen. 3:15, as Christ is identified with Ophiuchus and Orion in the Celestial Gospel, when the ancient meaning of the stars are allowed speak. Their witness of truth will shine through any confusion resulting from the darkness and corruption of astrology. God is the one Who named and numbered the stars and we have already seen how these ancient Star names match with Greek and Hebrew Bible words, like those used in Gen. 3:15 to accomplish the task God sent them to do. An example of this kind of corruption of ancient constellations is found regarding the image being crushed below Orions’ foot.

Rollestonobserved that although in most charts Orion’s foot rests upon a hare, in at least one ancient Indian star chart there is snake in place of the hare. Presumably, this snake has bitten, or bruised, Orion’s heel, as he is crushing the serpent’s head to fulfill the first Messianic prophecy (Genesis 3:15).”23 Of course, this depiction of a serpent instead of a Hare is not limited to Indian zodiacs, but was also the case in the Dendera zodiac, along with Persian zodiacs as well. 24 As we have seen with the square Dendera Zodiac it is not only one of the oldest planispheres around, as found with its depiction of the Great Sphinx, but it is also a uniquely wonderful source for the identification of ancient decans, that describes Lepus the “hare,” as a serpent. According to Seiss, the Persian and Egyptian zodiacs also include the image of the serpent under Orion’s foot, caught in the claws of a hawk or eagle. 25

Since the Gospel in the Stars is a pictorial representation, that parallels God’s Word, at times they tell a composite story of the truth of Christ. This axis is a good example of a composite pictorial depiction of Gospel truth, that is backed up by the meanings of the individual star names in the constellations and decans of these star pictures, along with planetary motions and unions as we have already seen in this record with Mars. The combined image of this Gen. 3:15 Axis shows not only 3 heavenly giants in combat with serpentine foes, but there is also a fourth decan on this axis shown taking the central star of the heavens away from the dragon’s control. Once the serpent being crushed by Orion replaces the Hare from later zodiacs, this Gen. 3:15 axis shows  powerful unified images in multiple constellations along this axis, all centered on the Genesis 3:15 theme.

Figure 10. Paths of Venus and Mercury from April 28 to June 10, 28 A.D. 26

The graphic above shows the movement of the planets Venus the bright and Morning Star, and MercuryGabriel, from April 28th, to June 10th, 28 AD. Both planets were initially moving towards Gemini, when they each went into retrograde motions that set them on course for Orion’s club. 27 As we have seen Orion on this side of the Mazzaroth embodies Christ even as Ophiuchus does 180 degrees away, on the other side of the Gen. 3:15 axis. As these two planets arrive in a coordinated attack to energize Orion’s raised club, on June 10th 28 AD, they are joined by the Moon on the same day that Mars reached the center of the Scorpion’s head, to grind the message home of his inevitable defeat in this battle of the ages. Orion is looking up towards the horns of Taurus, as we can see in Fig. 9, where the planet Saturn is stationed in the horns of dilemma, as seen in Fig. 10 above. We should also recall from Fig. 8 above, that the tip of one of these Bull horns is piercing the heel of Auriga the Shepherd, at a star sharing the same name in both constellations-Al Nath, meaning the wounded or slain. As Saturn-Satan is stationed between the horns of Taurus as the spiritual power behind the bruising of the Man’s heel, it’s attracting the attention of Orion’s Club empowered by the bright and Morning Star, heralded by the Messenger Arch-angel Mercury-Gabriel, while Mars delivers a massive Passover punch to the head of the scorpion, being crushed underfoot of Ophiuchus. When you anger the Almighty, there’s hell-fire and judgment to pay…from all angles.

Figure 11. Cetus the Sea-Monster tries to alter the course of Eridanus with its forelegs. 28

See the source image

With the conclusion of our Gen. 3:15 axis running down through Orion, we find issuing out of Orion’s foot, the River of the Judge-Eridanus, [Hab. 3:5]. This indicates Jesusrighteous judgment against the enemy and all the evil ones. In the course of the river Eridanus, we find the SerpentCetus, [Fig. 11 above] futile attempt to alter or stop the inexorable flow of these fires of judgment with its forelegs. The evil ones will not be able to escape their doom, due to their revolt against the Almighty God. Thus, their doom resides where these fires of judgment pool, in the Lake of Fire, or the Second Death, [2 Thess. 1:7-8]. Another key we find in Figure. 11 is the bands tied to Cetus binding the fish of Pisces. These bonds were broken by Aries, seen in the skies above our Lord at his crucifixion, when the darkness blocked the light of the Sun in Aries. The King Planet Jupiter was also found in Aries in retrograde motion, just as we have seen the other planets during this period from March 1st-June 10th, 28 AD. Jupiter’s retrograde was focused on the bands binding the fish of Piscesthat were broken resulting from the perfect sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ; [Jn. 1:29] seen in Fig. 11 in the lamb’s foreleg stretched across the bands. The brightest star in Aries in some charts is Al Hamal, in other charts Al Nath, with the same name and meaning as we have already seen in the foot of Auriga, being gored by the Bull horn of Taurus, fitting again with the theme of the Gen. 3:15 Axis, and Christ’s Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension.

In summary, the Genesis 3:15 Axis provides a panoramic view of the Gospel in the Stars across the expanse of the signs in the Zodiacal band, of the stars named and numbered by The Creator, [Ps. 147:4] to relate the infinite theme of God’s eternal purpose, carried and fulfilled by His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, as it is written in the Stars. With a view of the Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension of Christ as he opened the Age of Grace on the Day of Pentecost for his spiritual body of Believers, adding depth and context to this Gen. 3:15 Axis, we are afforded a sweeping view of the Gospel in the Stars fulfilling Messianic prophecy. The truth as it is presented in the Tapestry of the Stars by the Hand of God Himself, is indisputable, to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.
