2015 Jupiter-Venus Triple Conjunction and Regulus with the Birth and Return of Christ


2015 Jupiter-Venus Triple Conjunction and Regulus with the Birth and Second Coming of Christ

As we approach the climax of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 this September, we have noted a number of heavenly signs in the context of this current Blood Moon Tetrad reflecting the celestial glory of heavenly signs surrounding the Birth of Christ. In our previous Blood Moon blog post, we introduced the Triple conjunction of Jupiter-Venus that kicked off on July 1st earlier this month. This initial Jupiter-Venus conjunction was all over the newscasts, and current events, being compared to the brilliant June 17th Jupiter-Venus conjunction in 2 BC near the birth of Christ. It is exciting to see the secular world sitting up and taking notice of these current heavenly signs, and their resemblance to the birth signs of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. These are not the birth signs from your local astrologer, but the heavenly signs installed according to the divine calendar when the Almighty spun the planets in their orbits at Creation. The second Jupiter-Venus conjunction in this triple series in 2015 takes place on July 31st. Including the August 18th Jupiter-Venus conjunction in the Beehive Nebula in 2014, this makes the 3rd union of these two brightest planets in the last year. The Prophet Isaiah gave us clear idea of what awaits those trusting astrology, and divination, that the same judgment that fell upon ancient Babylon will fall on those followers of these practices in modern Babylon, and around the world also.

Jupiter-Venus Conjunction

Isa. 47:9-15

9 But these two things shall come to you in a moment, in one day: The loss of children, and widowhood. They shall come upon you in their fullness because of the multitude of your sorceries, for the great abundance of your enchantments.
10 “For you have trusted in your wickedness; You have said, ‘No one sees me’; Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped youAnd you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’
11 Therefore evil will come upon you; You will not know from where it arises. And trouble shall fall upon you; You will not be able to put it off. And desolation shall come upon you suddenly, Which you will not know.
12 Stand now with your enchantments And the multitude of your sorceries, In which you have labored from your youthPerhaps you will be able to profit, Perhaps you will prevail.
13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators Stand up and save you from what shall come upon you.
14 Behold, they shall be as stubble, The fire will burn them; They shall not deliver themselves From the power of the flame; It shall not be a coal to be warmed by, Nor a fire to sit before!
15 Thus shall they be to you with whom you have labored, Your merchants from your youth; They will wander each one to his quarter. No one shall save you.

Unlike the court magicians who could not by their sorcery tell the King his dream, the Prophet of the true God, Daniel made known, according to the true godly principles of Biblical Astronomy, that eventually led the Magi to the Christ child, gave the king the answer to his dream, known only by the Almighty. Just as the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions along with the Jupiter-Regulus Triple conjunction in 3-2 BC marked the Birth of Christ, so we can note some key heavenly signs including Jupiter and Regulus leading up to the final Blood Moon of the 2014-2015 Tetrad. There is a literal parade of planets visiting Regulus over the next few months, combining in a crescendo of conjunctions with the King Star Regulus, preparing us for the birth of the Kingdom of the King of Kings.

The following list dates not only the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Leo during the transition from the Hebrew Sabbatical year to the Jubilee year of 2015-16, but other key  planetary conjunctions and heavenly signs, including the underlined Regulus signs below, during the first weeks of August into October 2015.

We can see from this list the heavy celestial traffic leading up to and including the Partial Solar eclipse on Sept. 13th-Rosh Hashanah, and the Final Super Blood Moon-Sept. 28th at the Feast of Taberncles in this 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad.

As there were 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple union of Jupiter-Venus aligning with Regulus in Leo, reflects a similar spiritual light in 2015. In fact the Rev. 12 heavenly sign: the [Sun clothing Virgo with the Crescent Moon at her feet] on September 17th, 2015 is announced by Mercury-Gabriel located just outside the womb area of Virgo united with Spica/Al Zimach, on this day 2 years in advance of the rewind of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017!  There will however be more heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus in the next 2 years, leading up to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo’s womb in 2017. The July 17th, Venus-Regulus conjunction referred to above, started a series of planets including Jupiter, Venus and Mercury, all uniting with the King Star over the next 4 months.  To understand the significance of Regulus with the birth of Christ, a primary Messianic prophecy must be considered from Genesis 49 concerning the Lion of Judah.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

Genesis 49:8-10

“Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be
on the neck of your enemies;
Your father’s children shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
These verses break down the maturation of the Lion of Judah, from lion cub, to adult Lion, to aged Lion. The specific relationship of this prophecy with the triple conjunction of Jupiter-Regulus in 3-2 BC was presented as part of my DVD Seminar on the Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ, in the segment provided belowThis can also be found on my You-tube channel, with other uniquely informative segments on this and other DVDs, laying out the biblical details and astronomical secrets of the Birth of Christ. Please take a few moments to watch this video segment disclosing details in this biblical record you will not hear anywhere else.

As we just saw in the video above, the prophecies of Balaam in Numbers corresponding to the Jacob’s prophecies in Genesis 49, because they not only both deal with the destiny of Jacob/Israel in general, but they prophesy of the Promised Seed Jesus Christ specifically.

Numbers 23:19-24.
19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
20 Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

21 “He has not observed iniquity in Jacob, Nor has He seen wickedness in Israel.
The Lord his God is with him, And the shout of a King is among them.
22 God brings them out of Egypt; He has strength like a wild ox.

23 “For there is no sorcery against Jacob, Nor any divination against Israel.
It now must be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!’
24 Behold, the people rise up as a great lion, And lifts himself up like a young lion;
He shall not lie down until it devours the prey, And drinks the blood of the slain.”

The “Shout of a King”
here is a direct Messianic prophecy of Christ in verse 21. The references to the 3 stages of the lion’s growth in verse 24 ties into the next chapter in Numbers 24, and relates directly to Gen. 49:8-10.

Numbers 24:9-18
‘He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?’[a]

Blessed is he who blesses you, And cursed is he who curses you.”

10 Then Balak’s anger was aroused against Balaam, and he struck his hands together; and Balak said to Balaam, “I called you to curse my enemies, and look, you have bountifully blessed them these three times!
11 Now therefore, flee to your place. I said I would greatly honor you, but in fact, the Lord has kept you back from honor.”

12 So Balaam said to Balak, “Did I not also speak to your messengers whom you sent to me, saying,
13 ‘If Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the Lord,
to do good or bad of my own will. What the Lord says, that I must speak’?
14 And now, indeed, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you what this people will do to your people in the latter days.”

Num. 24:2 Balaam saw Israel abiding in their tents according to their tribes…

Balaam’s Fourth Prophecy

15 So he took up his oracle and said: “The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor, And the utterance of the man whose eyes are opened;
16 The utterance of him who hears the words of God, And has the knowledge of the Most High,
Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Who falls down, with eyes wide open:

17 I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; A Star shall come out of Jacob;
A Scepter shall rise out of Israel, And batter the brow of Moab, And destroy all the sons of tumult.[b]

18 “And Edom shall be a possession; Seir also, his enemies, shall be a possession, While Israel does valiantly.
19 Out of Jacob One shall have dominion, And destroy the remains of the city.”


These “star and scepterprophecies were fulfilled in Jesus’ Birth, Ministry, Resurrection and Ascension, but his kingdom yet remains to be established, when all the Lord’s enemies will become his possession. The Star of the Messiah in Num. 24:17 is linked to Jupiter-the Scepter, since it was the King planet that the Magi saw “in the east,” [Matt. 2:2] or in the [heliacal] rising, that led the Magi to the Promised Seed. In the King planet’s regular 12-year [11.86 year] orbit around the Sun, Jupiter also enters the constellation Leo every 12 years. With every 7th cycle of Jupiter’s 12-year visitation to Leo, Jupiter shares 2 unions with Regulus, translating into 2 Jupiter-Regulus triple conjunctions every 83 years; [11.86 x 7=83.02]. These are based on the retrograde motion of Jupiter which appears from earth to crown or circle the King Star on these occasions. As a testament to the Creator’s 7-fold temporal order written in the heavens, when 7 of these 83 year Jupiter cycles are calculated, we arrive at a total of 581 years, or 7x (7×12). The helical rising of Jupiter with Regulus also occurs once every 83 years, during Jupiter’s regular visits to Leo. However, the King Planet does not normally share a triple conjunction with Regulus except when Jupiter is in retrograde motion. We leading up to one of the King Planet’s normal unions with Regulus on August 11th, 2015. It has been determined that the birth if Christ took place during the seventh 83-year cycle and on the seventh cycle of Jupiter’s seven 83-year cyclesThis also coincided with the first day of the holiest seventh month on the Hebrew Calendar, Sept. 11th 3 BC. This first day of Tishri is also Rosh Hashannah/Hebrew New Year’s Day, when all the Kings of Israel and Judah calculated the start of their respective reigns regardless of when they actually began. With Jesus Christ as the King of Kings, it is fitting that he should be born on this key day in the seventh and holiest month on the Creator’s divine Calendar, that holds the seventh Feast of the Lord, the Feast of Tabernacles, [Lev. 23, Luke 1-2].

With a proper Biblical, historical and astronomical perspective of the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of Christ, we can take a detailed and informed look at the current heavenly signs highlighted during the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. In the graphic below we can see Jupiter, Regulus and Venus forming a large celestial triangle on the western horizon this month after sundown, which will draw closer together as we arrive inAugust of 2015. We can also see a cluster of signs from the 5th to the 11th of August all around Regulus in Leo. It appears that in this pairing of the planets, they each have their chance to dance with the King Star Regulus. With this emphasis on Regulus it focuses attention on Gen. 49:10, where the “Lawgiver from between the feet “[RegelHebrew root word for Regulus,”] wields his everlasting royal Scepter-Jupiter. The same Hebrew word for “scepter” is utilized in both Gen. 49:10 and Num. 24:17, as the authority of the King of Kings is delivered to him who will rule the nations with a rod of iron forever. With this line-up of planets paying homage to the King Star-Regulus,ha it certainlyhas those with eyes to see and ears to hear, shouting” for the arrival of the King and his Kingdom of Righteousness. Here is the planetary roll-call of suitors for Regulus and the Lion of Zion over the next few months, closing out the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015.

The King Planet and the Messenger Planet Mercury-Gabriel. As the fastest moving planet in its orbit around the Sun, Mercury will close its triangle with Jupiter-Regulus on the 6th of August, until it reaches a close conjunction with Jupiter the King Planet on the 7th. Later that same day Mercury will reach a close conjunction with Regulus-the King Star, forming the tightest of celestial triangles, in the Lion of Judah.

This impressive parade of planets on the dance card with the King Star-Regulus in August of 2015, gets our attention for the culmination and climax of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. As we conclude this four Blood Moon Series, including the Partial Solar eclipse on Sept. 13th-Rosh Hashanah, and the Final Super Blood Moon-Sept. 28th at the Feast of Taberncles, a star-spangled warning has been issued asa mandate from heaven to be prepared for the immanent Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

My first interest in Biblical Astronomy was sparked during the study of the celestial signs surrounding the Birth of Christ in the late 70's and early 80's. This grew into a greater interest in Astronomy, resulting in numerous studies, clubs and activities as an amateur astronomer. Starting around 2003 I began working on the Try-God website, as a venue to publish my various articles and studies in Biblical Astronomy, which in the last 10 years, has garnered interest from an audience around the globe. With renewed effort and energy, we are expanding on our initial efforts with the website, for a more effective outreach to our growing audience.
