The Eclipse Menorah of 2014 to 2027.


Welcome to the November 2023 Blog everyone! This month’s study is a follow- up on the Oct. “Ring of Fire” study, with added insights relative to the recent Hamas attacks in Israel, in a recent historical context to shed added light on these events. We will look not only at Israel’s recent history of conflict with its Muslim neighbors, but also the astronomical history of this period, from Israel’s Independence, and reclamation of Jerusalem through recent/current celestial signs through 2034. The graphic below shows the a bird’s eye view of world eclipses from 2024 to 2034. The pattern of focus here concerns eclipses crossing in the USA, as their paths intersect the eclipses that are due to cross in the middle east from 2027-2034.

To show the true rarity of total solar eclipses, in a 20-year span, the 2017 USA eclipse “X” stands in similarity to the amazing “X” resulting in the Mideast eclipses (USA ring of Fire is not pictured). The symmetry of X’s in the USA
and Middle east Judgment eclipses are unique historically, as seen in the relationship between the Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014-2016 and 2033-2034.

An important aspect of this study is to understand what I’m terming as an Eclipse Menorah of 2014 to 2027. The Ends of an “Eclipse Menorah” seem to appear in the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad as they extend to the 2033-2034 Blood Moon Tetrad.

During the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, we find the backdrop and context for the Northern Polar Eclipses that bracket the eclipse activity between the North Pole 3-20-2015 @ Spring Equinox during 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad- 2259 days from its Center Point Blood Moon on May, 26th 2021. The other end of this Menorah of Eclipses is found in the 2033-2034 Blood Moon Tetrad, also with an Equinox Total Solar Eclipse on March 20th, 2034, likewise 2259 days from the center point eclipse on May, 26th 2021. These eclipses are the outer extremes of this Menorah, but they do not “take place in a vacuum” or without context. Thus it is profitable to be aware of the historical context of the recent history of Israel to gain further insight into current events.

Total Solar Eclipse at the North Pole: 3-20-2015 on Spring Equinox.  

During the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 Israel was involved in war with Hamas. The report below is from Wikipedia on July 19, 2014, during Israel’s third war against Hamas. A densely populated neighborhood of Gaza City was Shijaiyah, that the army said Hamas had transformed into a “terrorist fortress,” filled with tunnels, rocket launchers and booby traps. As Israeli forces pushed into Shijaiyah, a jumble of squat concrete buildings and narrow alleys, the army said militants unleashed a barrage of automatic gun-fire, anti-tank missiles and rocket-propelled grenades. This Hamas terrorist assault against Israel in 2014 preceded the current invasion by nearly 9 years, that took place between the Passover and Sukkot Holy days marked by Total Blood Moon Lunar Eclipses on 4/15/2014 and 10/8/2014.

The battle came on the third day of a ground offensive that had been preceded by a 10-day air campaign. Then, as now, Palestinian civilians had been told to leave the neighborhood. Then, as now, many stayed, either because Hamas told them to or because they had nowhere else to go. Hamas, which has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007, launched an attack inside Israel over a month ago, on Oct. 7th, 2023 killing hundreds while abducting 200+ hostages. An unprecedented border breach sent terrorists inside border communities to assault women and children with the families at a peaceful music fest, shocked Israel and its allies. The 2014 attack by Hamas described above, preceded the most recent and much more brutal incursion by Hamas over a month ago, on the 50-year anniversary of the Yom Kippur War in 1973. #2

April 15th2014 Opening Blood Moon of the 2014-2015 Tetrad
Illustration of Mars in our night sky.

A key aspect of the opening the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad was the Mars-Spica triple conjunction in Virgo. This was based on the retrograde motion of Mars in Virgo’s womb, as seen above during which Mars passed the star Spica three times in Virgo, foreshadowing the triple conjunction of Jupiter-Spica in Virgo’s womb in 2017. The Mars-Spica triple conjunction in Virgo occurred as
a result of the 3rd Mars Retrograde in Virgo, seen above on the 1st Blood Moon of the Tetrad starting on Apr 15, 2014. This put the 1st Blood Moon of the Tetrad between the 2nd and 3rd Mars-Spica union. The dates of this Mars-Spica triple union in Virgo are as follows:

Mars-Spica #1: Feb 1st, 2014 in Virgo
Mars-Spica #2: March 27th, 2014 in Virgo
Mars-Spica #3: June 13th, 2014 in Virgo

The opening Blood Moon of the 2014-2015 Tetrad took place April 15th2014 marking the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread. What is fascinating here is that Mars in retrograde not only marks the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrads, but also the previous two Blood Moon Tetrads in 1949-50 and 1967-68! In addition, the triple planetary conjunctions linked with the Mars’ retrograde also mark all three sets of modern Blood Moon Tetrads according to the pattern of the Celestial Sphinxwith signs in both Virgo and Leo as follows,
in a reverse timeline:

Mars-Spica #1: Jan. 20th, 1967 in Virgo
Mars-Spica #2: Apr. 20th, 1967 in Virgo
Mars-Spica #3: July 4th, 1967 in Virgo

The Second 1967 Mars-Spica union took place 4 days before Passover. Here Mars-Michael the warrior archangel stands strong in battle against the Muslim terrorist enemies of Israel, not only in the 6-day war, but also in the previous war for Israel’s Independence, as seen in the triple conjunction of Mars-Regulus in Leo in 1947-48′. Israeli defense forces [IDF] recaptured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount on June 7th, 1967, 6 weeks after the 2nd Mars-Spica union in Virgo.

The first modern Blood Moon Tetrad marking Israel’s Independence was highlighted by a Mars-Regulus Triple union in Leo as follows:

Mars-Regulus #1: Nov. 28th, 1947 in Leo
Mars-Regulus #2: Feb. 18th, 1948 in Leo
Mars-Regulus #3: May 19th, 1948 in Leo

Israel’s 70+ years as a State began in May, 1948. This was marked in the sky by  a Mars-Regulus Triple union in Leo, along with the first of the modern Blood Moon Tetrads in 1949-50. The Third Mars-Regulus union took place 5 days after Israel’s Declaration of Independence on May 14th 1948. These 3 dates are all linked with a Mars retrograde, showing a history of Bible prophecy. The Retrograde of Mars started on March 10th, 1967 and moved into a visual sight alignment with the Star Spica of Virgo on Jan. 20th, April 20th and July 4th of 1967. During this period, Mars entered at the head of Virgo on Nov. 17th 1966, while moving in its regular motion on a parallel path to the ecliptic, until starting its retrograde just below Virgo’s knee on March 20th, 1967. With its reversal of motion, Mars came into its first visual alignment and conjunction with Spica, Jan. 20th, 1967while Mars was in its retrograde loop return, it aligned with Spica again on April 20th, 1967. Finally, Mars ended retrograde, on May 28th, 1967 returning to its normal motion on Pentecost, June 5th, 1967- 2 days before Israel recaptured Jerusalem for the first time in over 2000 years!

As we consider the dates of the inception of Israel’s statehood in 1948, and it’s related 1948 borders, compared to when Israel recaptured Jerusalem in 1967, Israel’s land gains are notable. The biggest change to Israel’s frontiers in 1967, after the Six Day War left Israel holding the Sinai peninsula, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, East Jerusalem and most of the Syrian Golan Heights – effectively tripling the size of territory under Israel’s control.

Israel’s declaration of Independence.

The first Mars retrograde marked the Mars-Regulus triple conjunction in 1947-1948. The closest Super-Moon since Jan. 31st, 2016 Super-Blood Moon fell between the 1st and 2nd Mars-Regulus union in Leo, on Jan. 26th, 1948. In view of the link to the 1948/eclipse comet and the forming of Israel’s state, we find an emphasis on the 70-year period from 1948-2018. The last 7 years of this period are highlighted by the Super-Moon/soli-lunar eclipse signs, while marking the Hebrew Jubilee of 5777.

The Third Mars-Regulus union took place 5 days after Israel’s Declaration of Independence on May 14th, 1948. The 1948 Eclipse Comet appeared ahead of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 1949-50 near the eclipsed sun, as if the Sun was holding a sword. The comet’s position passing through Hydra-the Serpent destroyedthis sword was raised against the serpent-enemy persecuting Israel. As a prelude to the 1949-50 Blood Moon Tetrad, this Eclipse Comet brought attention to the luni-solar Eclipse Tetrads that would also occur in 1967-68, marking Israel’s re-taking of Jerusalem, along with the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015.

The first Mars retrograde marked the first modern Blood Moon Tetrad in 1947-48 in Leo, with a Mars-Regulus triple conjunction. The following 2 Mars retrogrades marked the next 2 Blood Moon Tetrads in Virgo, in 1967 & 2014 with 2 sets of triple planetary conjunctions of Mars-Spica. Here we find an emphasis on the Alpha and Omega eclipses of the Hebrew Mazzaroth as seen
in the Celestial Sphinx signs leading to the replay of the Rev. 12 sign in Virgo.

On 19 June 1967, shortly after the Six-Day War, the Israeli government voted to return the Sinai to Egypt and the Golan Heights to Syria in exchange for a permanent peace settlement and a demilitarization of the returned territories. #3 [75][76][77] []

On the Hebrew Jubilee calendar of 49 years [7×7] plus one year for the 50th year of Jubilee, the Yom Kippur War, or “October War” took place in 1973. The Yom Kippur War, also known as the Ramadan War, the October War,[60] the 1973 Arab–Israeli War, or the Fourth Arab–Israeli War, was an armed conflict fought from 6th to Oct 25th 1973, between Israel and a coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria. Most of the combat between the two sides took place in the Sinai Peninsula and Golan Heights—both of which were reclaimed by Israel with fighting in African-Egypt and north Israel. [61][62][page needed]

Egypt’s initial objective in the war was to seize a foothold on the eastern bank of the Suez Canal and subsequently leverage these gains to negotiate return of the rest of the Israeli-held Sinai Peninsula.[63][64][65][66]
The war began on October 6th 1973, when the Arab coalition jointly launched a surprise attack against Israel, as the Arabs violated their previous treaty, on the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur, that had occurred during the 10th day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan in that year.[67] The Yom Kippur War had far-reaching implications; the Arab world experienced humiliation in the lop-sided rout of the Egyptian–SyrianJordanian alliance in 1967. The Israelis recognized that there was no guarantee that they would always dominate the Arab states militarily, as they had done previously throughout the FirstSecond &
Third Arab–Israeli Wars; these changes paved the way for the Israeli–Palestinian peace process. At the 1978 Camp David Accords that followed the war, Israel returned the entire Sinai Peninsula to Egypt, resulting in the 1979 Egyptian–Israeli peace treaty, marking the first instance that an Arab country accepted
Israel as a legitimate state. During the Six-Day War of 1967, Israel captured Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, roughly half of Syria’s Golan Heights, and the territories of the West Bank which had been held by Jordan since 1948.[74]  #4

The current hostilities were initiated by Hamas on Oct. 7th of 2023 on the 50th anniversary of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, a seemingly planned assault designed to coincide with Israel’s holy days, as this history observes. This violence aligns with some notable celestial activity on the front end of this Menorah of Solar and Lunar signs over a 14year period from the Spring Equinox Eclipse at the North pole on 3/20 2015, 2259 days from the Center point Super-Blood Moon Eclipse on May 26th, 2021, to the Total Solar Eclipse on August 2nd, 2027– also 2259 days after the central May 26th, 2021 Eclipse! “This August 2nd, 2027 sign crosses over the March 20th, 2034 Total eclipse, intersecting Egypt over Luxor, also separated by a 2422-day span [7 Eclipse Years]. As the American Total eclipses from 2017-2024 also both occur on Mondays, and are separated by the same 2422-day span, with all four crossing lunar eclipse signs belonging to the same Eclipse type of family.” #5

These signs form celestial brackets around 3 matched sets of stunning Eclipses symmetrically based around a common center point of May 26, 2021, from 2015-2027. Even as the Spring Equinox Eclipse @ the North Pole is part of the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad, so also the August 2nd, Total Solar Eclipse frames a near Blood Moon Tetrad of 2025-2026.

The Near Lunar Tetrad of 2025-2026

, 2025, Total Lunar Eclipse
March 3rd
, 2026, Total Lunar Eclipse
August 12th
, 2026 Partial Lunar Eclipse

This Blood Moon Lunar Tetrad consists of the first of 2 Total Lunar Eclipses in 2026, initially occurring on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2026, after which the August 12th, 2026 Partial Lunar Eclipse occurs. As the 3rd eclipse in a near Tetrad, the March 3rd, 2026 Eclipse is preceded by a March 14th, 2025, Total Lunar Eclipse, followed by the Sept. 7th, 2025, Total Lunar Eclipse. As the final Lunar Eclipse in this near Lunar Tetrad of 2025-2026, the 8-12-2026, partial Solar eclipse falls 1904 days after the central super Blood Moon on May 26, 2021. This links to the March 9th, 2016 Total Solar Eclipse that also fell 1904 days prior to the central super Blood Moon on May 26, 2021. This 2016 total solar eclipse on March 9th, was part of a lunar sextet of signs following the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Lunar eclipse series.

The next 2 corresponding eclipses in this Menorah are the subject of my Oct. 2023 blog that cross to form the Alpha/Omega eclipses of 2017 and 2024. These Pan-American eclipses, are separated by 1211 days [3.5 eclipse years] each for a total of 2422 days [7 eclipse years]. The Aug. 2nd, 2027 eclipse over the Nile river and eastern Saudi Arabia, will be the longest eclipse of the 21st century, forming an “X” marking middle eastern boundaries, will be visible in Israel.

Figure 2. Eclipse Crossing over the Middle East 2027-2034. #7

Map from website. The epicenter of the Cross is southeast of Luxor, home of the Pharoahs, on the Tropic of Cancer. The pattern, as in the USA eclipses is the cross, or the X—Tav in Hebrew, Christ in Greek.

These eclipses occur on the 19-year Metonic just as Spring Solar Equinox eclipses match calendar days of 3-20-2015 and 3-20-2034. A lunar tetrad occurs in 2023 and 2033 and High Holy day tetrad occurs in the years 2033 and 2034 (though the eclipses will not be total in 2034). In each case,
an important solar eclipse occurring on the Spring Equinox takes place between lunar eclipses on the high holy days of Judaism. #8

The precise midpoint of the 2017 and 2024 USA eclipses was Dec. 14, 2020. This date appears to be a US political center of activity, as on this daybetween 10am-5pm Eastern time, the Electoral College certified Joe Biden & Kamala Harris as President and Vice-President of the United States of America. A key Monday Total Solar eclipse was perfectly centered between two Total Solar eclipses, as the political administration that oversaw the division of the USA, was installed to close the American Century from 1918-2017, written in eclipse shadows across US borders. This however is not the only importance of this date as Dec. 14th, 2020 also witnessed a Hannukah Total Solar Eclipse, as an-other center point eclipse not only for the Pan American Eclipses of 2017-2024, with 1211 days between each eclipse, but a spiritual view of a Hannukah eclipse is established the next year on Dec. 4th, 2021 with another Hannukah Total Solar eclipse, a lunar year or 355 days later. An Eclipse on Hannukah represents the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem, by lighting candles on the Menorah embodied in these seven eclipses!

This central date of Dec. 14th, 2020 represents the center candle of a Menorah of Eclipses-two Pan American eclipses from 8-21-17 to 4-8-24, each separated by 7 eclipse seasons–1211 daysin either direction brings you the USA Eclipse Judgments (which themselves are exactly 7 eclipse years apart). Seven eclipse seasons is 3-1/2 eclipse years … 34 months to the day before the USA’s Ring of Fire eclipse, last month on 10/14/2023. This represents a Base Menorah of three eclipse-branches, as a foundation to a regular seven-Branched Eclipse Menorah, centered on May 26th, 2021 Central super Blood Moon.

The remaining three pair of eclipses form the entire symmetry of this Seven- branched Eclipse Menorah over the following 14 years:

1. 3-20-2015 Total Solar eclipse 2259 days before the central May 26th Blood Moon is paired w/ Aug. 2nd, 2027 Total Solar Eclipse 2259 days after May 26th.

2. 3-9-2016 Total Solar Eclipse 1904 days before the central May 26th Blood Moon is paired w/ 8-12-2026 Total Solar Eclipse 1904 days after May 26th, 2021.

3. 7-2-2019 Total Solar Eclipse 694 days before the central May 26th Blood Moon is paired w/ 4-20-23 Total Solar Eclipse 694 days after May 26th, 2021.

As we look forward to December and the Hannukah Holiday Season, we can be mindful of how the Almighty Creator has installed the perfection of His patterns in His Creation of the cycles of the Heavens and Earth.

God Bless!
