Kepler’s Supernova 1604SN; A Beacon at the Celestial Crossroads

 On the left side of this month’s Banner graphic pictured above is the Supernova 1987A, which was discovered on Feb. 24th, 1987, as the first supernova explosion witnessed during the age of the tele-scope. Since this occurred over the past 35 years, Supernova analysis has expanded at an exponential rate in modern scientific astronomical research. These studies have grown to include a notable core of data on the 1604 Supernova witnessed by, and named after the German astronomer Johannes Kepler.

Kepler is widely considered the father of modern astronomy and rightly so, but he might not have received this distinction without Tycho Brahe’s observational data, and support unanimously considered the most accurate and comprehensive in pre-telescopic astronomy. Among this data were observational records of the famed Nova of 1572, that disputed the Aristotelian concept of the Immutability of the celestial expanse.

Tycho Brahe’s life as a nobleman was cut short by his untimely death in 1601, though he left a wonderful legacy of most accurate astronomical observations, resulting from 38 years of ingenious work. Kepler on the other hand, was born near Stuttgart in 1571, in post-Reformation Lutheran Germany, was deeply religious and inspired to become a Lutheran Minister, studying theology at the University of Tübingen. At University he was influenced by Copernican Astronomy, but his theological studies were paused when he became a mathematics teacher at Graz in what is now Austria. Kepler first caught the public eye upon publishing Mysterium Cosmographicum in 1596, at only 25 years old. The book explained the arrangement of the solar system planets in terms of the five Platonic solids, in a nested geometrical framework; [Figure 1].

Kepler viewed the planetary order along the lines of the “Music of the Sphere’s,” unifying the basis for the orbits of the outer and inner planets. We see this in a geometric harmony of the solar systemwith the orbits of the gas giants; Jupiter, Saturn & UranusFigure 2 below depicts the outermean and inner orbits of Uranus Saturn and Jupiter using an equilateral triangle and an octagram. This is also a way of showing the structure of the musical Octave, with an eight-pointed star that halves or doubles the wavelengths or frequencies of the musical scale, with an equilateral triangle inscribed inside a circle, with 1/2 the diameter of its outer circle, in Fig. 2.

The geometry of this diagram not only depicts the musical order of these outer solar system planets, but since Jupiter and Saturn’s orbits are in the proportion of 6:11 to 99.99% accuracythis is the octave or double of the 3:11 Moon to Earth ratio, to 99.9% accuracy, revealing a geometric harmony and mirror symmetry between the outer and inner planets. This 3:11 earth-moon
proportion is also shared by two of our planetary neighbors, Mars and Venus, to 99.9% accuracy.
Upon closer inspection 3:11 is 27.3%, and the Moon orbits the earth every 27.3 days, in one of its
lunar cycles showing the harmonious pairing of the Earth and Moon. 3

It is this type of insight that Kepler’s Mysterium Cosmographicum afforded us, in how the heavens were Intelligently Designed with a geometrical and musical harmony in mind, according to the mathematics of the Pi, Phi and Lucas ratios. Kepler’s genius was proven in his Laws of Planetary Motion, and upheld in further scientific advances that followed. Kepler’s insight and recognition eventually brought him to the attention and economic sponsorship of Tycho Brahe, whose untimely death in 1601 was a blessing in disguise for Kepler, as this led him to a prestigious position as Imperial Mathematician in Prague, which opened access for him to Brahe’s research data.

His efforts were finally rewarded with the discovery of the first two laws of planetary motion that now bear his name. He discovered the third law several years after proposing the initial laws as he continued working on musical harmony applied to the motion of planets. Kepler’s brilliant blend of a highly creative mind with incisive and imaginative geometrical insights, worked together with his ability as a master mathematical theoretician, to produce these landmark innovations in the history of scientific astronomy.

We have previously covered his observations regarding the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction series, and their historical and spiritual impact on the birth of Christ in previous blogs relating to the Celestial Prelude, noted below for historical reference. For these and other reasons Kepler has always been one of my favorites in the field of scientific astronomy, and in this study, we take a closer look at Kepler’s work on the supernova that bears his name, and its potential links to the Coma Supernova and the Planisphere Axis. In 1573Tycho Brahe wrote:

“Last year [1572], in the month of November, on the 11th day of the month, in the evening, after sunset, when I was contemplating the stars in a clear sky, I noticed that a new and unusual star, surpassing the other stars in brilliancy, was shining almost directly above my head; and since I had, from boyhood, known all the stars of the heavens perfectly, it was quite evident to me that there had never been any star in that place of the sky, even the smallest, to say nothing of a star so conspicuous and bright as this.”4 This supernova designated SN 1572 was seen by Brahe in Cassiopeia, but no further supernovae had since been observed with certainty in the Milky Way, until Kepler’s Nova detailed below. Bullinger tells us Brahe discovered this supernova appearing under the arm of the enthroned woman, as this “new star shone more brightly than Venus.” The beta star of the decan bears the Hebrew name Caph, meaning the branch, relating to the branch of victory she holds above her head. Cassiopeia is seated upon the Arctic circle, close by the side of Cepheus the crowned king. This the Bride, the Lamb’s wife, the heavenly city-the New Jerusalem, the partakers of the heavenly calling; [Isa. 62:3-5]. 5

This sight was so shocking to Brahe because it went against the widely accepted understanding that the universe was fixed and immutable. A few decades later, in 1604, Kepler made a similar observation that scientists and stellar observers are still puzzling over. The German mathematician and astronomer, who famously laid out the 3 laws of planetary motion, spotted a light brighter than any other star in the sky, so bright as to be visible during the day for nearly a year. He spent the next few months observing the unknown object, and wrote a book about his observations called “Stella Nova.” The Figure 3 graphic below is from Stella Nova, documenting the triangular form of Jupiter-Saturn Unions from 1583-1743.

Figure 3. The Jupiter-Saturn Great Conjunction triangle from Kepler in his De Stella Nova: 6

Kepler mapped, the progress of the grand conjunctions of Jupiter-Saturn through the zodiac describing a series of equilateral triangles. Every 60 years a triangle of conjunctions is completed, as the conjunction series returned to start again, shifting however nine degrees anticlockwise in respect to its predecessors, thus generating a cycle of 800 years. Figure 3 also documents [with an asterisk] inside the triangles, the union of Jupiter and Saturn in 1603 in Sagittarius to the lower left. This planetary union in the Jupiter-Saturn series predated the 1604 Supernova at Ophiuchus’ Heel, by only a few months. In the early fall of 1604, on the heels of this Jupiter-Saturn union, Mars joined Saturn in conjunction on Sept. 26th. About 2 weeks later Mars also joined Jupiter in union, about 2 degrees below it on Oct. 9th, 1604. Kepler, with some contemporary  astronomers of his, took specific interest in observing this union of Mars and Jupiter, which they noted relating to planetary activity surrounding the Star of Bethlehem. We have shown in previous blogs, their interest was not in vain, evident in the chart below, during the visibility of the Coma Supernova just after the Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunction of 7 BC, there was a Triangular massing of Jupiter, Saturn & Mars on Feb. 25th of 6 BC, followed by a Jupiter-Mars union in the next 8 days, along with the first of 2 Blood Moons in 6-5 BC. These served as key celestial markers that helped the Magi recognize the signs marking the birth of Christ, in 3-2 BC.

 Kepler was at first unable to view this supernova due to cloudy skies, but fellow astronomers Wilhelm Fabry, along with Michael Maestlin at Tubingen and Helisaeus Roeslin at Alsace were able to make their observations on October 9th, but didn’t record their findings on the supernova. 8 The supernova was first detected in Europe by delle Colombe in northern Italy on Oct. 9, 1604. 9 Kepler was only able to begin observations on 17 October while working at the imperial court in Prague. 10 In Fig. 4 below, we find a graphic of the Jupiter-Saturn & Mars union, framing Kepler’s Nova on Oct. 17th, 1604. The supernova was subsequently named after him, despite the fact that he was not its first observer, as he tracked the object for over a year. The sitings are detailed in his book De Stella nova in pede Serpentarii,(“On the New Star in Ophiuchus’s foot” Prague 1606).

Figure 4Jupiter-Saturn & Mars conjunction, framing Kepler’s Nova on Oct. 17th, 1604. 11

Below in Fig. 5, we see the man Ophiuchus-wrestling the serpent for the Crown of Dominion, with Sagittarius, the adjacent sign-hosting the 1603 Jupiter-Saturn union, as the victorious rider whose arrows are trained on the heart of the Scorpion, [Ps. 45:5] tells a related part of the Genesis 3:15 narrative enacted by Ophiuchus, who crushes the head and heart of the serpent-scorpion underfoot in a fatal blow, while enduring the Scorpion’s sting of physical death, in sacrifice for all mankind. In the Fall of the next year 1604, due to the slow-moving outer planets, Jupiter and Saturn were still found in a similar position not far apart. This was the setting for the 1603 union of Jupiter-Saturn described above in Fig. 3, which can be seen as a Prelude to a Jupiter-Mercury union on 12-23-1603, preceded by fleet Mercury meeting Saturn on 12-22-1603, the previous day.
These two Mercury conjunctions on consecutive days culminated in a triple union of Jupiter-Saturn-Mercury on Christmas day 12-25-1603, forming a notable planetary triangle in the sky. 12 Even as the Magi were led to Jerusalem near Christmas of 3 BC, and subsequently to Bethlehem, in the Celestial Prelude of the Jupiter-Saturn triple union of 7 BCsetting the pattern for the 3-2 BC Triple union of Jupiter-Regulus, so Kepler’s Nova reminded him of the Bethlehem Star near the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Sagittarius of 1603, followed by the Triangular massing of Jupiter, Saturn & Mars on Feb. 25th of 6 BC, preceding a Jupiter-Mars union in the next 8 days. With the added similarities of planetary conjunctions including Mars, and the Mercury unions with Jupiter-Saturn leading to a triangular massing of planets on Christmas, we find added planetary kinship with the May 19th, 3 BC Mercury-Saturn union in Taurus as an opening sign leading to the actual parade of signs marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC.

Figure 5. Ophiuchus viewed between and above Scorpio and Sagittarius.

As we found in Figure 4 above, when combined with the information in Figure 3, the three planets Jupiter-SaturnMars are located at the vertices of the Trigon marking Jupiter-Saturn unions, linking the planetary conjunction series with Kepler’s Nova. According to William Eamon; Kepler identified the supernova with a star that appeared in a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn during the years 7-5 B.C.” 13 Since the supernova of 1604 appeared in a similar conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn later in the series, he reasoned it had a shared kinship with the Star of Bethlehem that showed the Magi the way to Jesus.

The New Star in Ophiuchus’s foot

Kepler's drawing of the location of a new star he spotted in 1604. It is marked with a capital "N" located 4 grid squares up and 4 over from the left.

In this enlarged graphic of this section of the sky between Sagittarius and Scorpius, where Kepler’s Nova exploded on the scene at Ophiuchus’ heel, this is truly a critical juncture or crossroads in the heavens, if you will. This is where the ecliptic, which houses the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth, [Ps. 19:4-6] crosses the Galactic equator! It is highly fascinating to me that Kepler’s Nova exploded so close to the star Saiph; which means the wounded one, as if to specifically mark it. The Planisphere axis intersects the star Saiph, in the LXX Greek meaning “bruised,” in Ophiuchus‘ heel, 14 This is the same Greek word found in Gen. 3:15 for “bruised,” while Ophiuchus’ other leg is poised over the head of the Scorpionstriking his fatal blow as he crushes the enemyKepler’s Supernova marked the celestial inception point of this Planisphere Axis of the Heavens, in kindred harmony with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction cycle, which over 1600 years previous had qued the Magi to begin their trek to Jerusalem and the birth of Christ.

This is where our interest as students of Biblical Astronomy brings an added focus to the picture, with what we have already documented in previous blogs concerning the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis. This Planisphere Axis intersects a series of Stars, Star pictures and decans, telling a very specific story that not only spans the Ecliptic and the Galactic Equator with the Celestial Gospel but also the Scriptures, regarding the Promised Seed Jesus Christ.

Figure 6. The Ecliptic in relation to the Galactic Equator.

It is very interesting to me that Kepler’s Supernova has not gotten more historical attention than it has, but I’m not surprised that this is the case.  When we consider the location of Kepler’s Supernova in close proximity to the Star Saiph in Ophiuchus’ Foot, being stung by the Scorpion, we are witnessing the first of multiple heel alignments on the Planisphere Axis relating different aspects of the victory of the Promised Seed over the Serpent, as promised in Genesis 3:15. Figure 6 above shows the Galactic Axis in harmony with the Axis of the Planisphere extending through Ophiuchus’ Heel between Sagittarius and Scorpius, on one end with Orion at the other end of the Galactic Plane, depicting the relationship of the Milky Way Galaxy.

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.

Figure 7. Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis.

If we now look at the other end of the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axiswe find amazingly that it intersects Orionspecifically at the star in Orion’s foot named Rigel16 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 linked 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,” referring to the swift destruction of the enemy resulting from the perfect sacrifice or “bruising” of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This reference to the spiritual battle between light and darkness, between the serpent and its seed, versus the Woman and her seed, emblazoned in the Star Gospel as God published the serpent’s interminable attempts on the life of the woman’s seed; Jesus Christ who bruises the serpent’s head, indicating the fatal blow that Christ inflicts on the enemy, as opposed to the scorpion stinging Christ’s heel, exhibiting the temporary wound [Saiph] of Christ’s sacrifice, as short-term sufferings that freed all mankind from the serpent’s curse, for eternity!

The “Genesis 3:15 axis” extends through the North pole intersecting a number of constellations and decans relating aspects of the Genesis 3:15, theme from various teaching perspectives. Starting at the bottom of this planisphere axis, we find the Scorpion constellationScorpius, whose prominent tail stinger is positioned just under the heel of Ophiuchus the Serpent-bearer constellation, who is also wrestling the serpent as the Scorpion stings his heel. Kepler’s Nova marked the star Saiph at the opening of this Galactic Axis where it crosses the paths of the Sun and Planets through the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth, calling focused vigilance
to this axis, and its alignment of Heels across the heavens between two Stars namedSaiph,” at each end of the Genesis 3:15 Axis. This also establishes the message of Scripture in the first prophecy of the Promised Seed in Genesis, in its three Scriptural elements of the star picture in Fig. 5. The Hebrew word for Scorpion is Akrab, meaning war or conflict; [Ps. 91:13] with the man. 15 

Figure 8. Orion, Lepus and Eridanus. 16

As Fig.6 depicts the relation between the Ecliptic and Galactic planes, we can see how the Milky Way crosses the ecliptic constellations between the Scorpion and Sagittarius the Archer to the South, and between the Bull-Taurus and Gemini to the North. A similar view of this Galactic Cross below, depicts the SagittariusGemini Axis intersecting the Virgo-Pisces Axis, that we have discussed previously in a website study pertaining to the Dendera Zodiac with its Axis E. An added detail of the Dendera Zodiac, shows how Axis E points to the sightline for the Galactic Center, located at the tip of the Archer’s arrow, at the Scorpion’s heart. 

In the constellation of the ArcherSagittarius, the star gamma, shown by the Greek letter akin to a “y,” marks the tip of the arrow sited on the Scorpion. The galactic center (GC) is just above his line of sight. A closer look at this part of the sky reveals the Archer’s final target as the star Antares in the heart of the Scorpion, but due to its near proximity to the Galactic Center; GC, the Archer’s aim appears to point beyond the GC towards Antares. The graphic is described by Graham Hancock as follows;

“The image above shows the celestial setting on 12-17-2012, the Sun has shifted out of the constellation of Scorpio, seen to the right, and is about to enter the constellation of Sagittarius. The yellow horizontal line represents the Plane of the Ecliptic. The cyan colored diagonal line represents the plane of the Milky Way Galaxy. The galactic center can be seen at the intersection of the galactic plane and the bright green vertical line. The heavy white line represents the Winter Solstice. On this day the Sun is closer to the Galactic center than at any other time in its yearly journey through the constellations of the zodiac and is poised precisely at the tip of the Archers arrow. Four days later the Sun crosses the galactic plane on the day of the Winter Solstice.” 17

ancient astronomers

Hancock adds; “This unique perspective is due to the fact that the Earth, the Sun and the Galactic Center are arranged in a quite accurate alignment at an auspicious moment, the moment of Winter Solstice when the Sun begins its return journey to the Northern Hemisphere. 18 As the Sun on the ecliptic moving in its solar cycles, represents Son of God moving ever closer towards his return to gather his saints.

What is striking about this graphic is this alignment of the Earth, and Sun at the Galactic Center during the Winter Solstice, seems to mirror the position of Kepler’s Nova in marking Ophiuchus’ Heel at this key celestial juncture-the heavenly crossroads of the ecliptic and the Galactic Equator! This celestial convergence of signs including a supernova, a Solar conjunction and alignment at the Winter Solstice, that also coincides with the Magi’s arrival in Jerusalem near Christmas, is certainly worthy of our attention.

It seems clear, as the point of the solstice is nearing alignment with the Galactic Center, illustrated by the point of the Archer’s arrow reaching the center target of the Milky Way, is another indicator that we are in the end times, near the Lord’s Return.

Bullinger informs us that “the Arabic name for the sign Sagittarius is Al Kaus, the arrow.”6 This is the king riding in the judgment of Numbers 24:8 who “eats up the nations of his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.” We find more details of the Lord’s return in Habakkuk 3.

Habakkuk 3:3-13

3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. 4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. 5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. 6 He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting. 7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble. 8 Was the LORD displeased against the riversWas thine anger against the rivers? Was thy wrath against the sea, that thou didst ride upon thine horses and thy chariots of salvation? 9 Thy bow was made quite naked, according to the oaths of the tribes, even thy wordSelah Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers. 10 The mountains saw thee, and they trembled: the overflowing of the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high. 11 The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear. 12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger. 13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou wounded the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck.

Here in verses 8-9 we see the Lord fulfilling the oaths of the deliverance of the tribes of Israel, as he bends his mighty Bow in judgment. As he brightly brandishes the weapons of his warfare, his arrows and spear, the heathen fall before him. He wounds the head or leaders of the wicked unto their foundations. None can stand before the wrath of the lord but the righteous, in his coming judgment. This is the mighty Sagittarius riding into Christ’s ultimate victory with his ascended Saints, over the wicked powers of darkness. [Hab. 3:13]

With each passing day, we draw nearer to the undeniable victory of the Lord’s Return! As we witness the signs of the Lord’s rapid Return, we should be rejoicing in this great Hope the Almighty has provided for us, in our daily journey on the paths of Light set before us. In our daily walk, we can also recall the words of Johannes Kepler, who admonished us, above all else, that we are mindful to pursue God’s Glory, not our own.

God Bless!

Comments Off on Kepler’s Supernova 1604SN; A Beacon at the Celestial Crossroads

Orion, the Pleaides, the Great Pyramid and Precession. Pt. 2


We concluded Part 1 of this study last month by noting key apex alignments, of the Great Pyramid first with Al Nitak-the [wounded one] and lead star on Orion’s Belt, on Rosh Hashanah of 2017. This was a prophecy of the sacrifice that the “wounded one” endured for all mankind, appearing on the anniversary of Christ’ birth on 9-11-3 BC. Also, the “Scored lines in the Great Pyramid’s Descending Passage were aligned to the star Alcyone of the Pleiades-the foundation star, as a 2nd apex alignment of the Great Pyramid, providing a stellar link between Al Nitak and the central star of the PleiadesAlcyone. There is also a 3rd type of Pyramid alignment on Al Nitak, that we highlight below in Figure 6, from the King’s Chamber star shaft. In this study, we focus on the Biblical Astronomy of the Great Pyramid, Al Nitak on Orion’s Belt, and the Pleiades star cluster.

Job 38:31-32  Can You bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose Orion’s Belt? Can you bring out the signs of the Zodiac [mazzoroth] in their season, or guide Aldebaran and its satellite stars? Did you proclaim the rules that govern the heavens, or determine the laws of Nature on the Earth? [REV]

To get the full picture of how the Belt Stars of Orion impact the narrative of this study we should notice their biblical usage. Job 38 is the first of two obvious references to Orion in Job, that we will considerJob 38:31, specifically refers to Orion’s Belt above, signifying the three stars as a unit in this verse. Since God’s Word refers to these three stars as a unit, and they are a celestial reflection of the three Pyramids of the Giza Plateau, then perhaps we should treat these three Pyramids as a unit also. This is key as we consider a master-plan for the structures of the Giza Plateau, but also good advice considering the rhetorical questions of these verses, since it was the Creator WhoBound the cluster of the Pleiades, and the belt of Orion.” The implication here is that any attempts by man to counteract the actions of the Almighty in binding the cluster of the Pleiades or loosing Orion’s Belt, would be to man’s own detriment, since men did notproclaim the rules that govern the heavens, or determine the laws of Nature on the Earth! It also implies the roots of a master-plan both with the celestial and terrestrial versions of this image. This point of the Creator’s emphasis of genesis, that He Made everything from nothing, is brought home in the opening words of the following scriptural references mentioning Orion and the Pleiades together. It also points out the folly of those who emphasize their idol astrological cults, as opposed to the Scriptural approaches of Biblical Astronomy.

Figure 1. The correlation of the 3 Orion’s Belt stars with the 3 Pyramid’s of the Giza Plateau. 1 

These are key references in the types or categories of biblical Orion references” that we can identify. A second aspect of Orion reference is the appearance of the Pleiades star cluster in each of the 3 verses with Orion; [Job 9:9, 38:31, Amos 5:8]. The link between the 3 stars of Orion’s belt and the three Pyramid’s at Giza is established by the King’s Chamber star shaft alignment of the Great Pyramid, with the star-Al Nitak, the “buckle or 1st star of Orion’s Belt, referencing again Christ’s Sacrifice as the “wounded one” on the cross.

The idea that the three stars of Orion’s Belt are a celestial reflection of the 3 Pyramid’s of Giza, is also key since
it is not by chance that Orion’s belt is situated on the celestial equator-directly reflecting the Giza Plateau in the Earth’s equatorial belt zone, where these 3 Pyramid’s were founded. This is in fact, a central aspect of the “Orion Correlation Theory,” with celestial and terrestrial beltsreflecting each other. But much more, it suggests an aspect of the Creator’s master-plan, based on the Great Pyramid’s support of Scripture including both Orion and the Pleiades together in these Bible references. Could this be directing our attention to the passages and star shafts of the Great Pyramid, and their interrelated alignments? In this light, we should recall the previous relation pointed out, linking the Descending Passage alignment on the Pole Star (Alpha Draconis), with the “Scored Lines,in Fig.2- showing their alignment on the Pleiades above the Pyramid’s apex at Alcyone, as another way of illustrating the transitory demise of the fallen Morning Star, giving way to the new Ascendant Morning Star-and capstone Jesus Christ.

Figure 2. The Great Pyramid’s apex alignment with the star Alcyone of the Pleiades star cluster. 2

Within the Descending passage of the Great Pyramid this set of ‘scored lines’ in the wall, point to the star Alcyone, of the Pleiades seen in Figure 2.  The Descending Passage was aligned to the north pole, during the pyramid’s construction age, but the alignment of the scored lines with the star Alcyone occurred only on two specific dates: 2123 BC and 3440 BC. Close to the later date, Piazzi Smyth calculated that Thuban was 3 degrees 43 m. from the pole at a lower culmination in 2170 BC, indicating the fallen nature of the 1st Morning Star when Thuban was on the meridian below the pole, as the Pleiades were on the meridian above the pole at the autumnal equinox, above the Great Pyramid’s apex. 3

Another scripture in Job where Orion and the Pleiades are mentioned together is in Job 9. This depicts yet another north polar Decan that bears” a deeper look. In Job 9:9 it seems theBear” was added to the guest list of this celestial party as seen below. In Ursa Major below, the handle of the Big Dipper asterism is formed by the stars of the bear’s tail, as  the dipper is part of the bear’s thigh, which is how it was pictured in ancient Egypt’s Dendera Zodiac, before 3000 BC.

Job 9:9 He made the BearOrion, and the Pleiades, And the chambers of the south;

Ursa Major constellation illustration

Ursa Major seen above, called the Great Bear is the largest constellation in the northern hemisphere. The Latin name means greater she-bear. Ursa Major is the larger bear in contrast with nearby Ursa Minor, also called the lesser bearUrsa Major is one of the original 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy in the noted 2nd century BC, work known as the Almagest, containing the asterism known as the Big Dipper. This asterism has two bright stars Dubhe and Merak, that have been used as a navigational pointer. These two stars Dubhe and Merak, point out the current north pole star, Polaris, as seen in the graphic below. The brightest star Dubhe means a herd or flock of animals. The Hebrew word linked to the star nameDubhe,” is Dohvermeaning a fold. A related Hebrew wordDohveh means rest or security,  giving us what Bullinger calls the security or resting place for the greater and lesser sheepfolds of the Saints, the redeemed of the Jews and Gentiles

Figure. 3 Polaris is the northern Pole star located in the decan of Ursa Minor. 5

The line formed by the two stars Dubhe and Merak points directly to Polaris, the northern pole Star of the lesser fold in Usra Minor, located between the feet of Cepheus the Crowned King at the North Pole. This embodies Jesus Christ ascended, and seated in the heavenlies at God’s right hand, ruling over the entire panoply of stars centered on the Pole, while guarding the 7 stars of his Churches. The star Polaris -the current northern pole star, that inherited its position via the precession of the poles, from Thuban, or Alpha Draco-the archaic pole, that the Descending Passage was aligned on during the construction of the Great Pyramid, is seen in Fig. 4 below.

Figure 4. The Great Pyramid’s Descending Passage aligned on Alpha Draconis [Thuban] the ancient Pole star. 6

As we have seen, the Scriptures record Lucifer’s failed coup’ against the Almighty, and his resulting ejection from Heaven to Earth, with a third of the Angels, [Rev. 12:7-13]. The ancients believed that mankind’s spiritual enemy, symbolized by the Serpent-tempter in the Garden of Eden, [Gen. 3:1ff] or the astronomical dragon constellations, had caused humanity to sin, destroying the idyllic age, in Earth’s Original Paradise. As seen above in Figure 4, the former pole star Thuban of Draco, was aligned down the Pyramid’s Descending Passage in 2144 BC, into the “Bottomless Pit” below the base of the Pyramid. This tellsnarrative in the megaliths of the Great Pyramid, with the Dragon Decan, shining over the Descending Passage, not only of the serpent’s former position as lead Arch-Angel in the 1st Heavens and Earth, but also his desire to take as much of humanity down in destruction with him, just as he did with his third of the heavenly angels.

In contrast, the “Scored Lines” of the Descending Passage were aligned on the Pleiades 7-star cluster, that embody the sweet influences of God’s Blessings on His people. The Pleiades cluster is found on the back of the Great charging BullTaurus– who depicts the swiftly returning Lord. The cluster of 7 churches are under the watchful eye of the Lord, as seen in the eye star of the Bull-named Aldebaran, the Head or mighty Captain. This gives us a hint of part of the mystery of the seven stars [I Thess. 4:13-17], because when the Lord returns first, he will raise those saints asleep in Jesus, as God brings them with the Lord, [v.14, 17]. They will be immediately followed by the remaining Saints who are alive at his return. This remains a mystery since only the Heavenly Father knows when this long-awaited gathering will occur. Thus in the oldest book in the Biblical canon- the book of Job, we find the Pleiades and Orion mentioned together, foreshadowing the union of the returning Christ, in the Charging Bull-Taurus coming for the redeemed in his 7 churches.

Orion is thus a symbol of the perfect Man and hero, embodied in Christ represented in Joshua the Hebrew warrior. The name “Joshua,” in Hebrew is the equivalent of “Jesus,” showing an aspect of the dual symbolism of Orion as both the fallen and risen Morning Star. We find in this Biblical reference to Orion, the 2nd of three in Job [9:9, 38:31] also [Amos 5:8], evidence showing Orion’s initial prominence as the figurative light of heaven. If Orion’s belt-line to Sirius (the Dog-star) is realized, then we find the stars of Orion’s belt symbolizing Lucifer’s choral units of angels under his domain, girt about his loins; [Ezek. 28:12-19] This description of Orion’s Belt figuratively resembles the portrait of the king’s glory found in Ezek. 1:25-28, over the heads of the Cherubim.

Ezek. 1:25-28.
25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings. 26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round-about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

The Great Orion Nebula. 7

To the naked eye, the Orion Nebula appears as a blurred central star in Orion’s Sword, south of Orion’s Belt.

This appearance of fiery glory, of the enthroned man in Heaven, above and below his loins is a manifestation of light, since v. 28 describes it as a rainbow or light spectrum. This resembles the midsection of Orion, closer than any other celestial image that comes to mind, as the name Orion means ‘light of heaven.’ This description also fits the scene mentioned in Rev. 4, of the throne-room, after the resurrections. From v. 27 abovefrom the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As we view this sector below Orion’s Belt, a most prominent area of the sky centers on The Great Orion Nebula; M42 in Orion’s Sword. As Rev. 1:16 reminds us; he that had in his right hand seven stars, and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and his countenance was as the sun shining in its strength. [Rev. 19:15, 21] This tells of the Lord’s destruction of the serpent enemy by the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God.

The Sword of Orion below his belt stars is identified with the Messier Object M42.

Lucifer as the angel of light in his first estate, had dominion over the angels in the dawn of time. Once Lucifer fell, his role as the “light of heaven” was stripped from him and set aside, to be transferred and superseded in the rising daystar, who washed out the brilliance of the fallen Morning star with his own Sunrise, symbolized in the Heliacal Rising of Sirius. We are reminded of this imagery, again in Job 38:12-13 [Revised English Bible] as the ancient Egyptians recorded in their daily observations of the skies, when the brilliant light of dawn ‘shakes the Dog-star from the Sky, and in v. 15 ‘when the light of the Dog-star is dimmed, and the stars of the Navigator’s line go out one by one.’ This sky depiction of the fall of the first Morning Star, while dimming and extinguishing his light, drowned out in the Sonrise of the ages, shows the astronomical reality of the truth of Christ’s preeminent light in Scripture, and in the heavens.

 

The center of these seven stars of the Pleiades, was Alcyone which was the target of the “Scored Lines,” showing the escape from the destruction of the Descending Passage, aligned through the Pyramid’s apex, in Fig. 2. This alignment of the Scored Lines was defined by actual observations at midnight of two consecutive Autumn Equinoxes, in 2145 BC, and on Sept. 22, 2144 B.C., when this conjunction took place. This allows us to see how the Great Pyramid encompasses the juxtaposition of Good and Evil, in the path down the Descending Passage into the pit, set against the apex aligning of the seven stars of the 7 churches, [Rev. 1:16-20], held in the hand of the Lord. Just as the Ascending Passage leads away from the downward spiral of the Descending Passage, so we are afforded an escape from a bleak demise in the pit. Here we find this message of Hope in the Pyramid’s passages, in agreement with the truth of Scripture, for all mankind in Christ our Savior, as a witness to the world in its last remaining architectural wonder. The last and only Hope for mankind thus resides exclusively in Jesus Christ, (Isaiah 14: 12-15, 19: 19-20) as he represents the Alpha/Omega singularly embodied in the Lord, as mankind’s Hope of salvation.

Can you bind the SWEET INFLUENCES of Pleiades? (Job 38:31) Make no mistake, no part of the mystery was ever revealed in the Celestial Gospel, prior to these truths being revealed in the Church Epistles of the New Testament by the  Apostle Paul. However, once the scriptural truths were revealed, it became possible with spiritual hindsight to see glimpses of these truths from a New Testament perspective. Peter speaks of this in [1 Pet. 1:8-13] where the faithful persist to see the end of their journey- the completion of their redemption and the salvation of our souls. Which Salvation the prophets inquired and searched diligently, but they could find no evidence of the graceful gap of time called the age of grace between the sufferings of Christ and the glory that should follow…which the angels desire to look into.

Figure 5. Orion’s belt alignment on the Pleiades above Taurus vs. Sirius below in Canis Major. 8

This mystery of the seven stars can also refer to the Angel’s first estate prior to their revolt, when Lucifer as the Bright and Morning Starled the angels as Morning stars and sons of God, in their collective shouts of joy, praising the Almighty, [Job 38:7, Isa. 14:12-20, Ezek. 28:12-19]. But once iniquity was found in Lucifer, he was cast out of heaven, taking 1/3 of the angels down with him; [Rev. 12:7-9]. This graphic in Fig. 5 reveals an alignment between Orion’s Belt and the 7 stars of the Pleiades, providing a unique perspective of a third Biblical mention of these asterisms in unison.

Amos 5:8 He made the Pleiades and Orion; He turns the shadow of death into morning And makes the day dark as night; He calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the face of the earth; The Lord is His name.

The fall of Lucifer transformed him into the angel that casts the shadow of death in the precession of the pole stars from Thuban of Draco, to Polaris or Al Rucabba, of Ursa Minor. And as we just witnessed above in the Revised English Bible version of Job 38:12-15, the light of the Fallen Morning Star was extinguished in the brilliant dawn of the Ascendant Morning Star Jesus Christ, who embodies the turning of the shadow of death into morning, as told by Amos.

Seek Him that made the seven stars and Orion, and turned the shadow of death into the morning, and made the day dark with night: that called for the waters of the sea, and poured them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name …”  [Amos 5:8] KJV

In the ancient Chinese Lunar Zodiac under Emporer Yao, the Pleiades star cluster was among the earliest of Lunar houses on record, dating to 2357 BC, when the central star Alcyone of the Pleiades was near the vernal equinox. 9 Throughout ancient Astronomy, and in the cosmology of ancient Egypt, one of the four-corners or pillars of heaven has always been the vernal equinox. This prominent recognition of the vernal equinox in ancient Astronomy is a major indicator of the consensus of the recognition of the precession of the equinoxes in early antiquity. This key linkage in ancient Egypt, between Orion’s 3 belt-stars and Sirius, not only ties the Sothic Calendar to the vernal point as a precessional marker, but also the lunar zodiac and the sidereal year, as seen in with the ancient Chinese astronomers also. Biblically, the 7 stars of this famed cluster; [Job 9:9, 38:31] are referred to collectively as a “heap or accumulation, and the congregation of the judge or ruler,” the ascendant Morning Star Jesus Christ, said also to be referenced in Rev. 1 as a mystery.”

Rev. 1:20
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Here we find the unity of the angelic realms with the 7 churches of Christ’s spiritual body, in the one accord of harmony in Christ’s return. 

We see hints of this imagery embodied in the Pleiades also in Milton’s description of Creation at the dawn of the world, in Paradise Lost; where he says of the Sunthe Dawn and the Pleiades before him danc’d, shedding sweet influence. 10 

 There is also a fable linked to one of these seven stars, that was lost in infamy. The Poet Aratos wrote;

As seven their fame is on the tongues of men, though six alone are beaming on the eye… 11 

Pleiades Star Map

This fable can be traced historically, to the disappearance of the 7th Pleiad star in the time of the Trojan War [1194-1184 BC], where according to Rolleston, “the star shot like a comet towards the North pole,” leaving only six main Pleiad stars. One of these was named “Maia” in Greek, tracing to the Chinese “Mao,” preserving the ancient Chinese historical roots of this Pleiad, in their Lunar Zodiac of the 23rd Century BC. 12 This reveals the historical influence of the Lunar Mansions, and their role in understanding luni-solar cycles with star cycles and the sidereal year. A “sidereal year” is the period of the Sun’s transit over the Meridian of the same fixed star on the ecliptic, consisting of 365.256 days. The Dogon of West Sudan, and the ancient Egyptians, made use of the Sothic Calendar based on the Dog-Star Sirius of Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens, as the basis of their star religions. As the Creator timed the stars and planets into orbit, He set the sacred 50-year Hebrew Jubilee period, first seen in astronomical history in the path of the star Sirius B,” and its 50-year orbit around SiriusA.” We have shown evidence that Bible Patriarchs, like Noah also recognized the Sirius cycle, which is covered in our website study on Noah’s Calendar. The Sumerians and Babylonians also shared  the use of sidereal calendars based on Sirius’ binary system, with the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, as a mainstay in their idol pantheons, applying a symbolic link to the Morning Star in both Venus and Sirius, the Dog-star. Ancient Egypt however, had the strongest ties to Sirius, as they called it the Nile Star, since its annual rising would coincide with the Nile floods, upon which their agriculture depended. The star Sirius was notable in Great Pyramid astronomy, whose Southern Star shaft of the Queen’s Chamber, was aligned on Sirius-seen below, in Fig. 6.

Figure 6. The Star Shaft alignments of the Great Pyramid.

Just above the Queen’s Chamber is the southern star shaft of the King’s Chamber, aligned on the lead star of Orion’s beltAl Nitak, the wounded one. This also depicts an astronomical relation between Orion’s Belt and the star Sirius, found in Figure 5 above, as the three Orion Belt Stars point towards Sirius the dog-Star. What follows is an important part of our thesis that establishes Sirius’ dual symbolism, linked with the Morning Star. A well-established standard of astronomical navigation is finding the rising point of Sirius once Orion has risen at least 20 degrees, by extending the so-called Navigator’s Line [Fig. 5] of the 3 stars of Orion’s Belt to the horizon.

The Dogon celestial mythology says that the cycle of Sirius B,” a White Dwarf companion star in joint orbit with Sirius A“, is a 50-year cycle, a fact verified by modern astronomers. Thus, it is instructive to see how half the fifty-year cycle of Sirius B exhibits the luni-solar kinship inherent in the 50-year cycle of Hebrew Jubilees, according to the golden section, or phi ratio. This is central to the celestial coordination of the luni-solar cycle, along with the Sirius star cycle as the three major calendars referred to in Gen. 1:14-16. Since the Sirius year, or Sothic Calendar as the Greeks called it, requires highly advanced knowledge of the heavens, capable of selecting the lone star in the sky that dictates a year365¼ days long, we find more support for these advanced astronomical practices centuries prior to Abraham.

The Stars of the “Navigator’s Line” in Orion’s Belt and sword with Sirius to the left.

navigator's line

Stars of the Navigator’s Line go out one by one“- These stars of the Navigator’s line-the three belt stars of Orion, that “go out, or are extinguished, one by one” as the sunrise of dawn washes out their nocturnal brilliance. This imagery fits a symbolic portrait of 1/3 of the stars of the heavenly host, under Lucifer’s domain, taken down with him when he fell from grace, resulting from his mutiny in the First Heavens and Earth. Their light was snuffed out due to their revolt as they were broken in the light of the rising daystar, the ascendant Jesus Christ. When we read this rendering of Job 38, in light of the Heliacal Rising of Sirius, the truth of this text lying hidden here for millennia finally comes to the surface.  This is most fitting since Job and Genesis, are the only books addressed to the Age of Biblical Patriarchs, whose gospel was the stars! This also shows the high degree of sophistication in the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs at a very early time in the antediluvian age. This is a witness to the ancient knowledge of the Sothic cycle in Job, based on the cycles of the dog-star Sirius, related to Orion’s belt, illustrating how the Patriarch Job provided a transition in Biblical Astronomy, from the principles of the Patriarchal Age with the Gospel in the Stars, to those of the Old Testament Law, to Christ and Grace.

This indirect reference to Orion in light of the imagery of the Dog-star Sirius, is worthy of our focused attention. Following the theme of Sirius’ dual symbolism, first as the angel of light, the first light of the world fallen from grace, this motif is also seen in the fact that Sirius remains the brightest star in the heavens even today, yet with negative symbolism, telling us how Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light in [I Cor. 11:14]. The gist of this is told in the Iliad, in words by Homer: “âs the star which rises in late summer, called among men Orion’s Dog [Sirius]; bright it shines forth, yet it is a baleful sign, for it brings to suffering mortals much fiery heat.” Homer continues: “Whose burning breath taints the red air with fevers, plagues and death.”13 As we are reminded of the Revised English Bible for Job 38:15, we find a special insight that reads as follows:

Job 38:15 When the light of the Dog-star is dimmed and the stars of the Navigator’s Line go out one by one?

The Hebrew word: “rosh” [H7218] rendered “Dog-star” in Job 38: 13 & 15 of the REB, is the root word for [H7222-roshah], also in Zech. 4:7 reads “headstone,” or “Chief cornerstone” [Ps. 118:22, Eph. 2:20, 5:23]. This version of “Sirius” as the “prince of the Heavenly host” was also referenced in Persia’s sacred books as “Tistar,” the “Chieftain of the East,” as it caught the first rays of the dawn before sunrise of a new day. This “new day” was key not only for the light of that 24- hour period, but also because for “3000 years, the Heliacal Rising of Sirius opened the New Year in old Egypt.”14

The Belt Stars of Orion and the Dog Star-Sirius of Canis Major. 15

Figure 19: The three belt stars of Orion point directly to Sirius or Dog Star. Sirius is part of the Canis Major or Greater Dog constellation.

From the reference above to the Heliacal Rising of Sirius in Job 38:15, we find the New Year’s celebrations in ancient Egypt foreshadowing a transition of spiritual power from the archaic Morning Star to the risen Daystar, Jesus Christ. [Pet. 1:19-21]

The fifty-year shared standard between the Sothic Calendar and the Hebrew Jubilee is an intriguing bit of astronomical history with powerful spiritual overtones of the ancient influences of the Biblical Patriarchs, with God’s foreknowledge. In the 50- year half-cycle of the Sothic calendar we find revealing mathematics related to the lunar cycle. According to Schwaller de Lubicz: The 25-year cycle corresponded to 309 lunations. The calculations are:

25 x 365 = 9125 days, and 9125 = 29.5307 days per lunation [309]

This in itself reveals extremely accurate observations. Modern Astronomy reckons the lunation as 29.53059 days, a difference of about a second. But Schwaller de Lubicz notes the intriguing equivalence of 25 years to 309 lunar months. 309=(Ø -1 x 1000 and it’s choice as the number determining the cycle cannot have been accidental.                                                                           2

(A double cycle, which expresses the Golden Section, comprises 50 years; 618 = ( Ø – 1 x 1000.) 16                                                                                                                                                                                                                      2

As we have seen, the Jubilee cycle is central to the timing of Christ’s birth, and is conspicuous in the celestial events making up the great wonder of Revelation 12. Rosh ha-Shanah on Tishri 1, was the “head” of the Judean calendar as New Year’s day and Jesus’ birthday, the first day of the 50-year Hebrew cycle of Jubilees. This not only set the foundational temporal pattern of the seasons, holidays and feasts of Israel’s ancient Sabbath-Jubilee calendar, but it also mirrors the phi spiral of our solar system, that synchs the orbits of the planets around the Sun. Certainly, it is not a stretch to realize that the same phi ratio ordering the great spiral galaxies of the universe, and patterns the growth of myriad plant species, also patterns our solar system by the same harmony of geometric laws at a varied scale.

Nautilus Shells, Galaxies and Tornadoes, Oh Phi!

In the coordination of the Solar, Lunar and Sothic Calendar, via the phi ratio, not only do we find a symbol of God, the Creator-Father of Lights, underwriting His Creation via His geometric “source of life-principle,” but it also shows a linkage between the precessional and Sothic cycles. As the Creator, He enlivened all life forms, as the Prime Mover, and Giver of the vital life-growth element seen in all four kingdoms of life: plant, animal (and insect), human & spirit kingdoms. As the phi ratio applies to these four kingdoms of life, it operates according the Fibonacci Series, approximating higher degrees of accuracy, unto the Phi standard, witnessed in the successive growth stages of life. This is the reason for the ubiquity of the Fibonacci Series in a myriad of terrestrial life forms. Two of these kingdom’s of life are embodied in the union of the body of the lion king-Leo with the human head of the woman-Virgo, in the Great Sphinx. This section of the ecliptic,  forms the Alpha/Omega point on the band of constellations termed the Mazzaroth, that I’ve called the Celestial Sphinx. Below Figure 7, displays the view over the horizon from Jerusalem, showing Virgo’s Head under the fully risen Leo the Lion, very near the birth of Christ.

Figure 7. The Celestial Sphinx of Virgo and Leo on 9-14-3 BC, three days after Christ’s birth. 17

head of a woman and body of a lion

This is the section of the sky that Jon Nessle recently taught us about, which is the target that our Solar System as it spirals forward, led each day with the Sunrise of the daystar, the light of the world-Jesus Christ! Figure 8, below includes both the decans above and below the ecliptic in this part of the sky, showing the serpent Hydra being crushed by the Lion’s claws, with the brightest star on the ecliptic-Regulus between the Lion’s paws, meaning the feet that crush, as he tramples the dragon underfoot; [Ps. 91:13]. 18 Hydra-the abhorred, is the long fleeing serpent stretched from the signs Cancer to Libra, including Virgo and Leo, engulfing the length of 1/3 the ecliptic signs. Other decans pictured are Crater, holding the wine of God’s Wrath, [Rev. 14:10], inseparable from Hydra, and Corvus-the Raven one of the birds of prey who feast on the eternally defeated dead carcasses of the ungodly.

Figure 8. The Alpha/Omega section of the Mazzaroth. 19

As we have seen, the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau embodies the Star Al Nitak on Orion’s belt. In Figure 9 below, the Great Pyramid is linked to the Great Sphinx by the Causeway between them. As the 3 Giza Pyramid’s are a reflection of Orion’s Belt stars, so the Great Sphinx at Giza represents the Alpha and Omega union of signs on the ecliptic, with the head of the woman-Virgo united with the body of the Leo the Lion, depicting the start and finish of the celestial ecliptic. As the oldest and largest freestanding rock sculpture on the face of the earth, the Sphinx draws our attention to this critical heavenly juncture, joining the great circle of the firmament, the celestial Gospel.

Figure 9. The Great Pyramid linked to the Great Sphinx by the Giza Causeway. 

As this Giza Causeway extends from the ancient Plateau to the horizon on the winter solstice of 2012, it aligns with the rising point of Sirius, the Dog Star. When this Causeway line transitions to the firmament, it intersects the Great Orion Nebula between the stars Rigel and Al Nitak of Orion. As we mentioned earlier in this text the “established standard of astronomical navigation of finding the rising point of Sirius once Orion has risen at least 20 degrees, by extending the so-called Navigator’s Line of the 3 stars of Orion’s Belt to the horizon. In the graphic below, the Navigator’s line becomes the line of the Giza Causeway, linking the Great Pyramid to the Great Sphinx to the rising point of Sirius on the Horizon!

In a book by Edward Nightingale called “The Giza Template: The Leo-Orion Relationship,” he shows a phi relation of the Sphinx to the Pyramids at Giza, in effect a master plan for the Giza Plateau. The following is an excerpt from his book. 20

As the Sphinx views the sky oriented eastward through the year,  The year is divided into months, days, hours, minutes and seconds. Using these six divisions of time, a calendar date was assigned using a binary date to the alignment of the Galactic Center with the Sun and Earth. It is from this alignment that the Gregorian, Mayan and Hebrew calendar reconcile. This date is encoded at Giza by drawing a 12° degree angle between an 11° degree division of the square and an 11° degree division of the circle creating the multi-angled Causeway of the Great Pyramid. So, what do we see on the horizon at that moment from the viewpoint of the Sphinx?

Figure 10. The Great Sphinx aligned with the Sirius-Pleiades “Navigator’s line” through Orion’s Belt. 21

Using Stellarium software to view the sky on this binary date and time from the coordinates of the Sphinx, shows  without doubt, the reality and precision of this design. The star Sirius is on the horizon, The Great Orion Nebula, M42 in Orion’s Sword is 21° degrees above the horizon and directly above Sirius. A line drawn between Sirius and the Pleiades is 11° off vertical, and is pointing to this 11° angleIt is this view of Sirius on the horizon, the position of the Pleiades, and the relative position of the Great Orion Nebula that is being tracked and documented. The movements of the star Sirius and the Pleiades star cluster are at odds with the current theory of precession in that they do not exhibit the so-called wobble motion of the Earth’s axis. This implies that Sirius and the Pleiades are on a similar trajectory as our solar system. In fact, that is exactly what I have discovered encoded in The Giza Template. I propose that our solar system, the star Sirius and the Pleiades star cluster system were birthed from the same stellar nebula, that being the Great Orion Nebula, M42. These three systems are each on their own spiral trajectory, each being separated by time and distance directly related to the 25,920 year cycle of the Precession of the equinoxes. These star systems are moving away from the M42 Nebula in a spiral motion with our ecliptic rolling along like a wheel on a spiral path. This movement defines what we view as the precession of the equinoxes, eliminating the outdated wobbling earth theory. Spiral motion and growth are seen throughout the natural world and need not be dismissed in light of celestial mechanics that account for precession. [https://grahamhancock.com/nightingalee3/] Here the Phi ratio mechanics are implied ruling over the Precession of the Equinoxes, supplanting the “wobbling earth theory,” which seems to be supported by the math of the supposed error in the Pyramid’s alignment from the cardinal points.

Another interesting element to this graphic is seen with the 11° line from Sirius to the Pleiades also intersecting Orion’s belt @ Al Nitak– the “wounded one” in reference not only to the Great Pyramid star shaft alignment, but also Gen. 3:15, and the dual head and heel wounds of the serpent and Christ. With the Sword of Orion [M42 Orion’s Nebula] over the head of Sirius at its lower culmination on the horizon, this seems to beautifully depict the destruction of the enemy, while giving added meaning to Job’s Pleiades references, that always include Orion’s Belt. This also fits with the “Scored lines” alignment of the Pleiades in the Pyramid’s Descending Passage intersecting Thuban’s trajectory into the pit, and the precessional shift, and the movement of the archaic pole star towards Polaris, of Ursa Minor. It seems the Almighty had great purposes in mind with Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy of the Giza Plateau, in conveying primary Biblical themes regarding the birth and return of His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ! We remain ever thankful for His Love and Grace, and the riveting evidence He has left for us, with eyes to see and ears to hear

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and God Bless!

Biblical Astronomy of the Star of David

The Star of David is an ancient sign and symbol that predates even ancient Israel. This symbol has a wide-ranging and multi-level history, reaching into numerous cultures across the globe. Early renditions of this important symbol are found on several Cylinder Seals dating as far back as circa 2500BC, exhibited in the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin, Germany. This ancient Akkadian Cylinder Seal shows a six-pointed Star with a centered Sun/star. There is a resemblance to the Star of David in this Seal, in that it is a six-pointed star, however it does not appear to conform to overlaid equilateral triangles as is the Magen David. There exists added archaeological evidence of zodiacs from the same general time suggesting feasible Sumerian roots. As we can see in the Cylinder Seal below, The Star figure is central to the six-pointed star, encircled by 12 other planets, or stars/constellations. If this sign is not our Sun, then perhaps it could represent a shadow, or twin star of our Sun, as other bright stars are known to have like Sirius and Sirius B, for example. This could also fit with David residing in the royal throne and genealogy of Jesus Christ, as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

Figure 1. Akkadian Cylinder Seal with the six-pointed star and the Sun at the center.1

The Sun figure-a 6-pointed star, surrounded by 12 other celestial bodies generally fits numerous Jewish sources that depict the 12 Tribes of Israel encamped around the Tabernacle in their 40-year sojourn in the wilderness. Similar images are also depicted on the Breastplate of the High Priest, conforming to a cosmic order including 12 hours of the day, 12 months of the year, and 12 zodiacal signs. Judean tradition even depicts the 12 tribes camped around the Tabernacle in the form of a hexagram. In Figure 2 below, each point of the hexagram links to the center of six circles, around a center circle of the Tabernacle where God presented Himself to His people, encircled by the planets and the Moon, as seen below and in Figure 3.

Figure 2. Hexagram with central Sun surrounded by 5 naked-eye planets and the Moon.2

The Star of David in Figure 3 shows the hexagram interlaced with these 2 equilateral triangles, and a hexagonal center, with the Light of the world. This Star of David provides an example of a God-centered Hebrew Solar System, including also a potential systematic map of planetary conjunctions, as they occur in the 12 celestial houses of the Mazzaroth. The history books relate that a heliocentric concept of the solar system was popularized by the ancient Greeks, specifically Aristarchus of Samos in the 2nd Century BC. But this did not catch on till Copernicus in the Middle Ages. Yet we find here further evidence of a heliocentric view going back to the Star of David at least as far as 1600-1400 BC, in excavations at Gezer painted on a ceramic bowl. 3
It’s good that modern science is finally catching up to the ancient Biblical Patriarchs in certain categories of advanced thought! Of course, you won’t hear anything but scoffs and chortle’s from today’s scientific community with suggestions like this, yet it is hard to ignore the evidence of the source for these ideas. [https://star-of-david.blogspot.com/search/label/archaeology]

The Star of David (Magen David) predates Yah’shua Ha Mossiach (Jesus Christ the Messiah), by at least six centuries. The six-pointed star was used in Jewish architecture as a religious symbol of victory and protection for over 2600 years. We find Magen David‘s also prominent on synagogues, like Capernaum where Jesus taught! [Mark 1:21, Luke 4:31, John 6:59), dating from the Second Temple period, during the Messiah’s ministry.

Figure 3. Seal of Solomon with Sun-center and 5 visible planets with the Moon. 4

There is much evidence that the six-pointed star was called the Shield of David because David’s name in Hebrew was spelled Daled, Vav, Daled. If you take the first and last triangles, the alpha & omega (Daleds) of “David” and interlace them, you have the Magen David. Encircling the triangles in the Mazzaroth joined in the first and last signs of Virgo/Leo-forming the Sphinx, as the unifying symbol in the context of the planetary unions in our solar system, including the Jupiter-Saturn series. The Star of David has also been used to diagram the seven days of the Creation week, and the Sabbath as a foundation in Hebrew and world timekeeping. In the graphic below, we find an example of how the hexagram has been used to diagram Bible truths, for example in Genesis 1:1, among many others. 5

sodbiblegenesis1.1done
Here are some other Bible verses where the Star of David pattern fits the verse as above…
[Gen. 14:19, 22, 27:39, Ex. 20:4, 11 Deut. 4:39, 5:8, 10:14, 30:19, Josh. 2:11, 2 Sam. 2:10, 22:8, 1 Kgs. 8:23, 27, 1 Chron. 21:16, 29:11, Ezra 5:11, Ps. 50:4, Ps. 57:5-11, 85:11, 102:19, 103:11, Ps. 113:4 to 115:16, Ps. 121:2 to 124:8, Prov. 25:3. Isa. 24:21, 44:23, 51:6, 55:9-10, 65:17.] Note the Bookends of the verses in Blue.

The following info comes from Leo Tavares, and his website Mathematical Monotheism. Since the Hebrew Alphabet is alpha-numeric, where every letter has a number value, below Tavares has charted the numerical values of the Hebrew words in Genesis 1:1. 6

Genesis 1:1

In the Beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth.

Regarding the number 37, Tavares notes that “for the sum of the Fibonacci numbers indexed to the first 37 decimal digits of Phi, after the decimal point=401. This shows a link between Pi and Phi ratios, previously illustrated in various blog posts. Not only does the center word of value of Genesis 1:1, stand out as its only Prime Word value, it stands out as its shortest word, made up of the first and last letters of their alphabet; the Aleph and Tav. Since the Almighty God-Creator is fittingly set in the center of these seven words in Gen. 1:1, like both the Menorah between the other 6 candles, [Rev. 1:20] and the Star of David with the center hexagon of the six-pointed star, this also reveals an internal code of mirror symmetry in Gen. 1:1, that the sum of the prime factors of the words to the left of 401, yields the same value of the prime factors to the right of 401. 7 This also shows the Almighty God at the center of the Hebrew Scriptures in the Alpha verse of all of God’s written Word, as the Creator of all the material world inside the universe, as well as the spiritual world outside of it.

Building on this, Tavares posits the PHI STAR OF GENESIS 1:1 -based on the numerical value of Gen. 1:1 [2701] is the 37th regular hexagonal number, and hexagons/hexagrams are naturally related, Tavares placed the order of the 37 Fibonacci numbers, derived from the first 37 decimal digits of Phi, after the decimal point, in the form of a hexagram where these numbers total 401, seen below in Figure 4. 8

Figure 4. PHI STAR OF GENESIS 1:1

This shows the link between Genesis 1:1 and the number 37 is active with both Prime and Fibonacci numbers. We can see this also in the sum of numbers at the numbers in the apex triangle points of this Phi Star of Gen. 1:1, totaling 37. [8+13+1+13+2+0] 9

Added examples of sacred Phi geometry are found in the banner below, depicting a Phi relation between the orbital speeds of Earth and Jupiter-Saturn. As the planets move anti-clock wise around the ecliptic viewed from Earth, Jupiter’s orbital speed is in a Phi relation to the slower Saturn, shown in the banner below seen from the Earth. This shows added evidence of the Phi ratio order in our solar system.

history of abraham

We have shown extensively on our website and blog series the impact of the Great Conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in Biblical history, in the astronomical markings of the birth of Abram, the birth of Moses, finally leading up to the birth of Christ. For all intents and purposes, this planetary conjunction cycle could be considered a major aspect of what I have termed the “Celestial Prelude” in describing the celestial signs marking the general and specific periods to mark the birth of Christ. Biblical history shows that the deliverer of Israel and the world, would come from the Seed of Abraham, and deliver Israel as the forerunner Moses did.

With The Star of Bethlehem, we are told that the Jupiter-Saturn unions carry a lot of  weight: In his Commentary on DanielAbarbanel {1437-1508} wrote that conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces signified not only the most important events but also events which referred especially to IsraelThe Rabbi argued that as the conjunction had taken place three years before the birth of Moses, an event which heralded the first deliverance of Israel, so it would also precede the birth of the Messiah and the final deliverance of Israel… What would Saturn, Jupiter and Pisces signify to the Magi astrologers? As New Testament scholar Raymond Brown points out, we cannot be sure how the Jews in the time of Jesus made their zodiacal calculations. The same scholar, however, goes on to say that ‘Pisces is a constellation sometimes associated with the last days and with the Hebrews, while Jupiter, an object of particular interest among Parthian astrologers, was linked with the world ruler and Saturn was identified as the star of the Amorites of the Syria-Palestine region’. The claim has been made that this conjunction might have led Parthian astrologers to predict that there would appear in Palestine among the Hebrews a world ruler of the last days, an apocalyptic king.10

Below we find depicted the Trigon of the Great Conjunction cycle by Johannes Kepler. He used this diagram to calculate the precession of the equinoxes based on the conjunction cycle of Jupiter-Saturn, as these giants of our solar system marked the opening of a new precessional age nearly every 2160 years, as they approach the vernal equinox. This triangular sequence of conjunctions and oppositions is completed in 60 years, as these 2 gas giants unite every 20 years, in an ongoing planetary union series. As each conjunction appears in a triplicity, that forms the triangular planetary union over 60 years, they transition to the next as seen in Figure 7, where the following Jupiter-Saturn union shifts to the earthly triplicity of Virgo.

Figure 5. the Trigon of Great Conjunctions. [Kepler 1606] 11

Johannes Kepler, made a detailed study of the moving geometry of the sky, represented the periods of the planets by geometric figures with values based on the fundamental divisions of the circle into four, six and twelve sections measuring 90º, 60º and 30º. He made a model that related the five Platonic solids to the planetary orbits, where the cube occupied the space between the orbits of Saturn and Jupiterand the tetrahedron between Jupiter and Mars. Since then many mind-boggling mathematical relationships have been discovered between the planets’ cycles, sizes and distances from each other, as well as their speed and axis inclinations, and even their rates of spin. These findings point to the presence of an Intelligent designer of the universe. They prove that, rather than evolving randomly, the Sun together with the planets and their moons form a unified, living system of the first order and elegance. 12

Figure 6. The Elements of the Star of David. 13

The graphic above depicts the Green triangle as earth, the Yellow triangle as air, the Blue Triangle as water, and the Orange Triangle as Fire, all unified in the Jupiter-Saturn series of conjunctions, in the central Star of David, as they make their way through the Mazzaroth, navigating these elemental celestial signs corresponding to earth, air, fire, water and ether.
The graphic in figure 7 below shows accurate values: in a tropical system, there will be 10 or 11 conjunctions, and in a sidereal system 11 or 12. Figure 7 below shows this visually, in a tropical system.

Figure 7. Eleven tropical mean conjunctions in the fiery triplicity. 14

Figure 6: Eleven tropical mean conjunctions in the fiery triplicity

Every mean conjunction advances by 242° 58′ 32″ of the circle, or 2° 58′ 32″ in the actual degrees of the signs. If conjunction #1 is at of a sign (here, Aries), then #2 will be at about 2° 58′ 32″ of Sagittarius, #3 at 5° 57′ 04″ Leo, and so on, always moving in a clockwise motion. But then #11 will be at 29° 45′ 20″, the last of the triplicity: the next conjunction will be a triplicity shift into the earthy triplicity, at 2° 43′ 52″ Virgo.

For Plato the five geometric solids called the Platonic Solids corresponded to the elements earth, water, air, fire and ether. The numbers and shapes have a qualitative as well as a quantitative dimension, which have been neglected in modern times.

Kepler viewed the planetary order along the lines of the “Music of the Sphere’s,” unifying the basis for the outer and inner planets. We see this in a geometric harmony of the solar system, with the orbits of the gas giants; Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Figure 8 below depicts the outermean and inner orbits of Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter using an equilateral triangle and an octagram.

This is also a way of illustrating the structure of the musical Octave, with an eight-pointed star that halves or doubles the wavelengths or frequencies of the musical scale, with an equilateral triangle inscribed inside a circle, with 1/2 the diameter of its outer circle, seen in Fig. 8.

Figure 8. Geometric orbits of Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter. 15

Image result for Jupiter-Saturn Geometry

The geometry of this diagram not only depicts the musical order of these outer solar system planets, but since Jupiter and Saturn’s orbits are in the proportion of 6:11 to 99.99% accuracy, this is the octave or double of the 3:11 Moon to Earth ratio, to 99.9% accuracy, revealinggeometric harmony and mirror symmetry between the outer and inner planets. This 3:11 earth-moon proportion is also shared by two of our planetary neighbors, Mars and Venus, to 99.9% accuracy. Upon closer inspection 3:11 is 27.3%, and the Moon orbits the earth every 27.3 days, showing the harmonious pairing of the Earth and Moon. 16

So when the size of the Moon is compared to the Earth, in the figure below, the circle through the center of the Moon is equal to a circumference of the perimeter of the Square enclosing the Earth. This Square also embodies the base of the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, whose apex touches the circle in the center of the Moon. 17

See the source image

The geometric order of the outer planets is further uncovered in the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn. The basis of the geometry of the six-sided star of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions is uniquely found in the hexagon construct at the north pole of the planet Saturn, [Fig. 9]. In this graphic we are beholding the amazing basis of the geometric pattern of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction cycle.

Figure 9. The Hexagram shaped North Pole of Saturn.Image result for hexagonal pattern at saturn's pole-images

If the six points of the hexagram or star tetrahedron are encircled in a sphere and if we add the planetary oppositions to the geometry of Jupiter-Saturn unions, the six-pointed star is formed, on a basis of the hexagram, as seen below in the upper and lower left corners of Figure 10. This graphic depicts the downward-pointing triangle of the hexagram with Jupiter at the upper right and Saturn at the low point of the triangle. The hexagon forms the corner-stone of the six-pointed “Star of David” mapping the unions of Jupiter-Saturn below. In May 2010 the last opposition stage in the current sixty-year cycle was reached, with Jupiter in Pisces opposing Saturn in Virgo. 18

When mapped, the progress of these grand conjunctions through the zodiac describes a series of equilateral triangles (Fig. 5). Every 60 years a triangle is completed, and
the planetary union returns to start, shifting however nine degrees anticlockwise in respect to its predecessors, thus forming a cycle of 800 years. Each 200 years the triangles shift to the next 
elements. From 1226-1425 they occurred in air signs, 1425-1603 in water, 1603-1802 in fire, and from 1802 to 2000 in earth20 

Biblical Astronomy perspective, provides view of planetary cycles of Jupiter-Saturn appearing in various zodiacal constellations around the ecliptic, noting the Biblical symbolism of each sign, combined with the planetary symbolism and Bible numerics to ascertain the meaning of these movements, in the context of Precessional and Biblical ages with sacred Geometry principles like the Phi, Pi and Lucas ratios, as found in the solar system and Great Pyramid. This includes categories of  Heavenly SignsHebrew Feast and holy days, and Jubilee cycles, among other considerations.

Another application of the Star of David pattern of overlapping triangles is found in the dual ministries of the Messiah as the Priest/King. This is a powerful symbol for Jesus as the Son
of David, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root and offspring of David. [2Pet.1:19, Rev.22:16]. One example of these unified ministries of the King and High Priest is found
in the Gospel of John record [John 10:22-30];

Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple area in Solomon’s Colonnade. The Jews gathered about him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.”

Jesus answered“I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father’s name speak for me, but you do not believe because you do not belong to my flock. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:22-30)

Two separate hints are given in this passage: 1) Jesus was in the temple area of Solomon’s Colonnade; and 2) he referred to his flock which means he was reminding his listeners that he is a Shepherd, in the same occupation as his forefather, King David. The image of the star of David is implied, that on another level symbolizes the joining together of the dual roles of king and high priest.

In the graphic below we have a geometric version of a six-petalled flower, called the Seed of Life in sacred geometry. Like the Pomegranate, these flowers are said to be the natural version of the Star of David in the Flower kingdom. The geometric pattern below is obtained by drawing 6 same-sized circles, that partially overlap each other, similar to the Vesica Pisces. If we look closely we can see the pattern of the Star of David within these circles also, that form the flower. In the overlapping circles on the top and bottom of this image, their common lozenge is divided in half by the inner circle surrounding the flower. These embody the upper and lower apex’s of the interlocking triangles, while the adjacent triangles provide the base angles of each triangle.

The pomegranate flower provides the ideal natural six-pointed star which may be one of the reasons it is found on the Ephod of the High Priest. They were found on the Hem of the Priest’s Ephod; his ceremonial robe that was worn while he ministered in the Tabernacle and Temple of Israel, [Exod. 28:31-35]. The pomegranates were alternated between small golden bells on the lower hem of the Ephod, which also held the High Priest’s Breastplate. This displayed fruitful works of the High Priest in his ministry. King Solomon was also said to have designed his crown based on a six-pointed star pattern of this sacred flower of the pomegranate. Here is a wonderful example of the dual ministries of our King and High Priest Jesus Christ who is the only perfect minister and our perfect redeemer, that we follow and obey as the head of our Spiritual body in his Church.

An added intriguing element is found as we consider how the 12 gems on the Breastplate link both to the 12 star-signs of the Mazzaroth, and the 12 tribes of Israel; this link takes you to an accurate account of how the tribes match their proper constellations. As the Star of David geometric structure also has 12 sides, as seen in the mid-lower row of Figure 10 above, we find a specific means whereby the conjunction series of Jupiter-Saturn, that marked the births of key Patriarchs leading to Christ, may have also provided an astronomical check and balance to the Urim and Thummim, also held in a pouch in the High Priest’s Breastplate.

As we walk in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ, rejoicing more and more as His Day approaches, in the resounding and reverberating truths of the Hope of Christ’s Return, we will stand together as super-conquerors in the Lord into eternity.

Timeline of Celestial Signs with Comet 323P/Soho

Recently a believer, Shelly McNair sent me a link to a you-tube video on a current Comet, 323P/Soho; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNyEJJ3__MM]

The video is a teaching from a Christian group led by Pastors Patrick and Christina called Hourly Watch, where they are apparently keeping watch of the heavens for signs of the Return of Christ. Pastor Patrick gave a presentation using Stellarium astronomical software that focused on Comet 323P/Soho, showing on Stellarium that prior to Summer Solstice of 2020, this Comet had not moved going back to 4999 BC in history. His exhibit on Stellarium displays the Comet 323/P initiated its first movement on record, in the ecliptic signs as Comet 323P, travels a singular lap of the skies. There are many notable heavenly signs documented along the way, detailed in Pastor Patrick’s video, and some that are not, that we explain below. I trust this blog will add a greater understanding regarding these heavenly signs, related to this Comet. I’m thankful to Shelly McNair for bringing this teaching to my attention, and to Pastor Patrick for his video teaching, which has some very interesting elements. Of course, we are all yearning for the Lord’s Return as the Great Hope of our redemption draws near, and we know we are living in the end times, as we prepare ourselves and our loved ones for this prophetic event, but we are not in the habit of date setting this event or predicted events in Scripture. Naturally, we want to be able to discern the details of Scripture as they relate to the end-times we are living in, as the Light of God’s Word always enlightens our path. Its regrettable the path is littered with many ministries that attached their livelihood to endtime prophecies with specific dates, predicting the Lord’s Return, the Great Tribulation, or other events that failed to occur according to erroneous predictions. With this in mind, let’s delve into some details in this teaching opening with basics on Comets in Astronomical history. Comets were many times linked to the fates of monarchs and leaders. Ptolemy about 200 AD, said “Comets show through the parts of the zodiac wherein their heads appear, and by the directions where their tails point, the regions upon which the misfortunes impend.”1

Figure 1. Comet 323P/Soho sighted from the ground by Man-To Hui on 12/21/20. 2

Comets are generally signs and portents of destruction and evil, and in Stellarium the Comet 323P appears to stay in a stationary position to the extent of the astronomical records in this software, with its sudden stir from inactivity to open the summer season last year. It appears to represent an embodiment of evil that has been reserved for the last days, but this presents our first problem, because the designation of “P” in Comet 323P, means this is a Periodic Comet, meaning this type of comet has been observed in orbits at least twice. This contradicts what Stellarium is showing in the You-tube video, perhaps due to the software limits, which does not extend past 4999 BC. In the list of Periodic Comets, on Wikipedia, 323P has an orbit of 4.22 years, so we should be witnessing it slightly more than every 4 years. It is classified as JFC or “Jupiter Family Comet,” and Comet 323P is also rated “NEC” regarding it as a “Near-Earth Comet,” where, in this case 323P shows up twice in the Top 10 of the closest approaching Comets to Earth. To make this list, the Comet orbits are known well enough so that observers can be confident of Comet approach distances. 3 Thus, contrary to what Stellarium Astronomy software shows the Comet 323P has a history of scientifically recorded motion previous to June of 2020! This changes a key aspect of the tenor of Pastor Patrick’s teaching, that we need to be aware of.

This Comet is located on the ecliptic between Cancer and Leo, in a position that seems to mirror the King Star-Regulus in Leo, along with the Beehive Nebula in Cancer. This is where we find Comet 323P June, 20th 2020, in Stellarium when its initial motion is recorded, towards Leo. Notably, this first slow movement of Comet 323P is marked by an Annular Solar eclipse on June 20th, at the Summer solsticeframed by two Blood Moon Lunar eclipses between 6/5/20, and July 4th, 2020! This notable sign between 2 Blood Moon Eclipses in the 6/20/20 Annular eclipse pictured in Fig. 2, is one that we will trace in the timeline below, along with celestial signs and key Comet activity.

Figure 2. Ring of Fire Annular Solar eclipse as seen over Japan, June 20th. 4
AnnularEclipse

Last year’s cycle of eclipses began with a Blood Moon Lunar eclipse on June 5th, followed by a historic Annular Solar Eclipse June 20-21, with the 3rd Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse on July 4-5 of the penumbral variety, effectively framing the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse on the June solstice. This amazing Annular Solar Eclipse was preceded by a lunar occultation of Venus on June 19th, which means the Moon as a prelude to covering the Sun, the light of the World, occulted Venus the bright and Morning star. This is engaging in light of previous Comet activity with lunar occultations and Blood Moons of 2014-2016.  After the Annular Solar eclipse of this 2020 series, the Full Moon was visited by Jupiter and Saturn, the largest planets in our Solar System. By Wed. 6-24-20 Jupiter-Saturn are only 6 degrees apart in Sagittarius, as Saturn is seen below, crossing into Capricornus. This supports the notion of Comet 323P symbolizing an end-time evil, as Saturn is seen in myth as Satan’s planet we find many references linked to the number 6, ordinarily the number of man, and the Beast or antichrist666. As Saturn in Capricorn, embodies a false-atoning sacrifice for the redeemed, we see a basic reference to the anti-christ, but it does not stop there, as seen in the relation of the number 6 to Saturn;

a. Saturn is the 6th planet in the Solar System.
b. Saturn forms the root of “Saturday,” the 6th day of the Week.
c. Saturn’s North Pole is the shape of a 6-sided hexagon.
d. Saturn has 6 clearly defined rings, the 7th being most faint. 5

Once Every 20 Years: Lunar Eclipse preceded by rare Jupiter-Saturn anomaly

This JupiterSaturn union with the Moon, appeared above the southeastern horizon, 3 days after the Annular Solar Eclipse, with Jupiter about 6 degrees, and dimmer Saturn about 3 degrees above the horizon. The start of the Independence day Lunar Eclipse, on July 4th & 5th, visible in the middle east that framed the Annular Solar Eclipse, as the 2nd of two Blood Moons was punctuated by this Jupiter-Saturn-Lunar union marking a key 3-day gap after Comet 323p’s initial movement.

It is also important to realize that heavenly signs like Comets have played a prominent role in the past, in relation to the recent history of Israel. The 1948 “Eclipse Comet” was a notable sight approaching the Sun during a Total Solar Eclipse, the 1st week of November. This Solar Eclipse occurred after the week of Sukkot, and the approaching Eclipse Comet on a southwest path through Hydra-the serpent destroyed, in Nov.-Dec. 1948, was a 2nd magnitude object with a tail as long as 30 degrees, appearing as if the Sun was holding a sword, raised against Israel’s Serpent enemy. A prelude to the 1949 Blood Moon Tetrad, marking the forming of Israel as a nation-state for the first time in nearly 2000 years, the Eclipse Comet brought attention to these Luni-Solar Eclipse Tetrads that also occurred in 1967-68, marking Israel’s retaking of Jerusalem, fulfilling numerous latter-day Bible prophecies, along with the next Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. Thus eclipses seem to have a noteworthy link to Blood Moon Tetrads in Israel’s history.

Timeline of Celestial Signs with Comet 323P/Soho, 2020-2021.

What follows is an expanded timeline of celestial events in Pastor Patrick’s You-tube teaching on the motion of Comet 323P, starting with the 2 Blood Moon’s framing its movement on the Summer Solstice of 2020.

6/5/20 Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse

6/20-21/20 Annular Solar Eclipse in Cancer gave us the Max eclipse at the moment of the New Moon, as Comet 323P starts its slow minor motion near Cancer, before its true motion began a bit later towards Leo. The motion of Comet 323P coinciding with the typically invisible New Moon, unveiled activity normally under cloak of darkness, was revealed by the Sun. Other key Comets were also moving in this area of the skies. The graphic above shows a temporal Pi relation between this Annular Solar Eclipse on the Summer Solstice marking the first movement of Comet 323P, with a Blood Moon that was one of the Lunar triples framing the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, and Tu B’ Shevat on the Hebrew Calendar. This Blood Moon on 7/27/2018 claims the longest totality of any Total Lunar Eclipse in the 21st Century. This key linkage is established in that the Annular Solar Eclipse not only ties to a series of Blood Moons framing the 2014-15 Tetrad, but this Annular Eclipse itself is also framed between 2 Blood Moons on 6/5/20 and 7/4-5/20.

Enjoy this bright Comet Neowise while you can, as it will not be seen again on this trajectory for nearly 7,000 years.

7/12-13/20-In Figure 6 Comet Neowise/ C2020 F3 as seen in Nevada from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, sighted just below the Big Dipper/Ursa Major. On the same day Comet Neowise was visible over my state of residence-NV, another Comet 2P Encke was passing Comet 323P joining in close proximity to this Comet as it entered Leo. Comet Encke is a Short Periodic Comet of 3.3 years, identified as such by Johann Franz Encke in 1819. During this week in mid-July 2020, the Comet Panstarrs-C/2017 T2, seen moving in the same region of the heavens between Bootes and the Decan of Virgo, is adjacent to this fair lady of the skies-Coma.

The graphic above shows another Pi relationship between Comet Neowise C2020 F3, on 7-22-2020 making its closest approach to Earth, and Comet Hale-Bopp on 3-22-1997. It is notable that this approach of Comet Neowise coincided with a 7.6 mag earthquake in Alaska also on 7-22-2020. This temporal Pi relation is complete on Christmas Day, the 1st Day of Hannukah on the Hebrew Calendar in 2027, looking forward in a prophetic context. This graphic is credited to the good folks [@watchfortheday.org] who have pointed out similar Pi/Phi relations with other recent events. As July closed on the 29th-30 the Comet Neowise C2020 F3, was visible approaching Bootes the Coming One, and Arcturus, meaning he cometh, with Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2, near the decan Coma, depicting the young child Jesus in the lap of his Mother-Mary. 11

7/27/20-As 2P Comet Encke continues its motion south of Leo near Hydra, it initially crosses into the first Decan of Hydra, called Crater. This decan embodies the cup of the wine of the fierceness of God’s Wrath on the evil-doers, [Rev. 14:10, 16:19]. This cup of wrath consists of 13 stars, the number for rebellion, and is attached to the body of the Hydra-the Serpent destroyed, being counted to belong to both constellations. 12

Hydra the serpent destroyed pictured with the Decans Crater and Corvus.

8/2/20-As 2P Comet Encke continues moving above Hydra, it encounters the decan Corvus the Raven, symbolizing the final Judgment scene. This is a decan of 9 stars-the number of judgment. The brightest star in the Raven’s eye is Al Chibar, which in Arabic means joining together. 13 Comet Encke’s path near Hydra is similar to the path of the Eclipse Comet in Nov. 1948 enacting judgment on the Serpent destroyed.
Since the lower half of Hydra runs parallel to the union of signs Virgo and Leo, it embodies the area where these Alpha & Omega signs of the Mazzaroth come together, unifying the Celestial Sphinx, seen in the head of the woman and the body of a lion.

8/11/20-As Comet 323P nears Leo, the Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2, has moved near Arcturus in Bootes, [Job 9:9] while Comet 2P Encke has moved to the end of Hydra’s tail. Aratus‘ name for Arcturus was Arctophylax, the guardian of Arctos, the flock of the greater fold, known today as Ursa Major linked to the Big Dipper. 14

8/20-21/20-As Comet 323P enters Leo-the lion of Juda, at Regulus on the ecliptic, the Sun is also present in Leo with Mercury-Gabriel, the Messenger planet as it joins Regulus in union on 8-28-20, heralding the King Star the following week.

9/11/20 Sun Clothing Virgo with the Moon at her feet. It is notable that the first two signs encountered by Comet 323P are those of the Celestial Sphinx-Leo & Virgo. Here as Comet 323P slowly moves thru Leo, the Sun and Mercury move into Virgo setting up the annual Rev. 12 sign. In the next year, Comet 323 orbits the ecliptic with numerous celestial signs and planetary conjunctions ultimately leading back to the precipice of this 9/11/21, Rev. 12 sign. Mercury-Gabriel also is unified with Spica and hailing its presence on 9-20-20. Gabriel the Messenger arch-angel declares Spica as the Zemach Branch & Promised Seed of the Woman, the star that marked the moments of Christ’s birth on this date in 3BC. Also on 9/20/20, the Comet Panstarrs has moved into the region of Virgo’s feet.

10/14/20-Comet 323P is seen with Venus the bright and morning star moving in Leo near its hind legs during this week to 10-20-20, with the Moon in the Lion’s tail and the head of the Woman Virgo, marking the union of the Celestial Sphinx. At this point on 10/18/20, Venus is unified with Comet 323P at the junction of the Celestial Sphinx, as they enter Virgo, while the Sun is in union with the star Spica. This shows the light of the world unified with Christ in his four-fold ministry as King, Son of Man, Son of God, and Servant. Here Comet Neowise C/2020 F3, has moved to encircle Virgo’s mid-section around Spica, marking the area in Virgo’s womb the king planet Jupiter spent 9 months in 2017Comet Neowise moves between the Sun and Venus on the way back to Bootes. After Mercury’s union with Spica on 10-20-20, Mercury enters retrograde motion near the end of October, where it unifies with the Sun in Virgo. It then returns closer for another visit with Spica to establish its announcement of antiChrist, in early November near Election Day.

11/10-14/20-Comet 323P is found with Mercury the Messenger planet heralding the Comet’s presence in Virgo, as the Sun departs Virgo for Libra, with the Moon at her feet, while the Comet Neowise C/2020 F3, departs Virgo for Bootes, and Venus the bright and Morning Star is near the star Spica, between Comet 323P and Mercury.

11/29-30/20Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2 weeks prior to the Total Solar eclipse in Sagittarius12/14/20.

12/12/2020 -Comet 323P visits the area of Virgo’s womb marked by Comet Neowise in unity with the star Spica, the royal seed that marked the moments of Christ’s birth on 9-11-3BC. This is significant as Spica, the Zemach branch embodies the four-fold ministry of Christ as seen in the Four Gospels. At this time Venus the bright and Morning Star is in Libra the scales of God’s perfect justice, while Mercury, with the Sunmoves near the head of the ScorpionScorpius, in the first week of December.

12/14/20 -Total Solar Eclipse, with the Moon covering the Sun in Sagittarius- the hunter, while Mercury heralds the Sun, the light of the World. Comet 323P’s union with Spica the Zemach Branch, so close to the Total Solar Eclipse, with the Moon’s attempt to block the Sonlight of Christ’s four-fold ministry in Spica, this eclipse shows the battle between light and darkness, with the attempt of the anti-christ to obviate the light of Christ, seen also in the arrows of the hunter’s bow trained on the head and heart of the Scorpion, as Ophiuchus crushes the Scorpion’s heart underfoot. The temporary blockage of this eclipse is a futile attempt to block the enemy’s inevitable defeat.

12/21-25/20-Comet 323P enters Libra/judgment on Christmas-preceded by the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on 12/21/20, the Winter Solstice. The graphic above depicts a phi relationship between Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in 2017 & 2019 and Lunar triple Blood Moons that framed the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15, as they compared to this Great conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn on the last winter solstice. The Lunar triple link above takes the reader to a previous blog that lays out precisely how the 2014-15 Tetrad was framed by Solar and Lunar eclipses, showing a basis for their relation to current celestial and lunar activity, as the movement of Comet 323P was being framed by Blood Moons, seen at the start of this Timeline.

1/4/21-Comet 323P picking up speed, has moved into Scorpius near red star Antares, Venus the bright and Morning Star is found near the star Saiph in Ophiuchusfoot, which indicates the first prophecy of the Promised Seed in Gen. 3:15, where the enemy bruised the heel of the promised seed of the woman. This is evident with Comet 323P near the heart of Scorpius, whose tail is seen below stinging the heel of the 1st Adam, with the Sun hailed by Mercury in Sagittarius, with arrows aimed at the Scorpions’ heart star-Antares.

1/10/21- Jupiter-Saturn and Mercury triple conjunction.

1-11 to 1-17-21; Comet 323P moving much faster now towards union with Venus the bright and Morning Star, and the Moon on the 11th, unifying also with the Sun the light of the world, in Sagittarius the Hunter with arrows trained on the heart of Scorpius-Antares.

1-18-21 to 1-20-21; as Comet 323P exits its union with the Sun in Sagittarius, its union with Saturn, Satan’s planet in Capricorn, exposes the anti-atoning sacrifice on; 1-18-21. Next is the Comet 323P‘s union with Jupiter the King Planet on the 1/19-20/21 also in Capricorn, implying this version of an embodiment of atoning sacrifice may be positioned in the new government. As Comet 323P is with Jupiter the king planet on Inauguration Day, seems to support this notion, not saying it is the puppet Joe Biden. This is followed by the Sun’s union with Jupiter-Saturn & Mercury to signal their allure in Capricorn. With the Sun-the light of the world following so closely on the heels of Comet 323P, with similar planetary unions in Capricorn, it shows Comet 323P, foreshadowing the Sun’s movements with the planets, telling a very similar, but counterfeit story. It is interesting that both Comet 323P, and the Sun are moving from Sagittarius into the sign Capricorn during this transition of political power from one admin to the next, reflecting a spiritual conflict going on behind the scenes. Venus the Bright and Morning Star remains in Sagittarius-the hunter.

Sagittarius-the hunter carrying the victory wreath.

1/26-27/21-Comet 323P unifies with Mercury-Gabriel the Messenger Planet in the sign Aquarius, the Water Bearer, as the Sun-the light of the world, Jupiter the king planet, and Saturn-Satan’s planet remain in the atoning sacrifice of Capricorn. As Aquarius depicts the true record of the abundance of living waters poured forth in the spiritual ministry of Jesus Christ, the false version would be a deluge of evil spirits released to ravage human prey in the enemy’s ministry of stealing, killing and
destroying. [Jn. 10:10] But those of us protected in Christ always overcome the darkness.

2/4-5/21-Comet 323P moves into Pisces, while Venus the bright and Morning Star moves into a union with Saturn, Satan’s planet in Capricornus, showing again the false atoning sacrifice, shining with newly activated political power. The Sun-the light of the world and Jupiter-the king planet still in Capricorn. This is followed 3 days later by a union of Venus and Jupiter, the king planet on 2/8/21, also in Capricornus. This also relates to the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions pointed out in Figure 8 above-45 days after the Jupiter-Saturn Winter Solstice union on 12-21-20.

2/18-19/21-Comet 323P unified with Mars the planet for Michael the Warrior Arch-Angel fighting for and protecting God’s people, in Aries referring to the Lamb of God [Jn. 1:29].The brightest star in the head of Aries the Lamb is called Al Nath-the slain, or wounded, referring to the Lord’s perfect sacrifice for all humanity. Comet 323P then moves into Taurus the Bull, where it approaches the planet Mars in Taurus, joined by the Moon near the Bull’s eye Star-Aldebaran, the leader or Governor, referring to the returning Lord Jesus Christ. 19

3/4/21 Comet 323P is in Taurus with Mars-Michael the warrior arch-angel also in Taurus near the Pleiades, meaning the congregation of the Judge or Ruler, as seen in [Job 9:9, 38:31-32, Amos 5:8]. The Syriac name for this star cluster is Succoth-[Amos 5:26] meaning Booths in reference to the Hebrew Feast of Sukkot, witnessing Jesus tabernacled with his Church. 20

3/15/21 Comet 323P while still moving thru Taurus the Bull with Mars in tow, very near the point where one of its great Horns impales the heel of the Great Shepherd- Auriga at the star Al Nath, meaning the slain. This upholds what we saw before in Comet 323P with Scorpius stinging Ophiuchus’ heel as described in Gen. 3:15, signifying the perfect sacrifice of Christ for all mankind. This is noteworthy since Al Nath is one of the few stars that is considered a member of 2 constellations, both Auriga and Taurus21 This agrees with the first prophecy of the Promised Seed, while establishing the theme of the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere axis, providing some of the best evidence for our Gospel in the Stars.

4/8/21-As Comet 323P enters Gemini during the first week of April, Mars does a close fly-by of Al Nath emphasizing the dual nature of Mars, that can be seen as the war planet or an embodiment of Michael the Archangel who fights for God’s People, from one perspective, with the red planet dripping with the blood of war. On the other hand, it can be viewed as the perfect blood sacrifice of the Lord, for Israel and the Church. The meaning is best determined from the context in which Mars appears, that in this case with Auriga the Shepherd, and Taurus the Bull, a common OT Sacrifice, points clearly towards the Lord’s Blood sacrifice. This theme is supported by the Comet in Gemini not speaking of twins, but the Messiah’s dual nature in “sufferings” and “glory” of his first and 2nd  comings. Two weeks later there is a Lunar Occultation of Mars on 4/17/21, near Taurus showing the spiritual conflict with this attempted lunar blockage of Mars-Michael. 
Ten days after there is also a Super-Moon on 4/27/21.

5/20-22/21 Comet 323P in union with Mars the war planet in Gemini. Since Comets are usually a portent of evil, it exhibits opposition to the Messiah and the forces of Light. This conflict between light and darkness is also embodied in the Lunar eclipse on 5/26/21.

5/23/21- Starting with Pentecost Birthday of the Church, the inner planets and Sun/Moon will all by-pass Comet 323P on their ecliptic paths in a parade of planets linked to this Comet in Cancer, and the Beehive Nebula seen by some as a Rapture sign. As with most heavenly signs, the signs precede the actual events. Any sign concerning the appearance of the anti-Christ qualifies as a “Rapture sign” because the Anti-Christ is not revealed till after the Rapture. The word “Rapture” is from Latinrapturo,” not the Greek [harpazo] or Hebrew. The Biblical name is the “Gathering together” [2Thess. 2:1-12]. In our current events, it may also depict the rising persecution of the Christian Church, which we have seen increasing evidence for, with a higher incidence of censorship by the social media giants and our government, along with a crackdown on Church meetings. The Beehive cluster or Nebula called Praesepe in Cancer means multitude or offspring, 22 showing the redeemed coming into their eternal place of rest. This depicts the Lord returning to lead his faithful into their everlasting peaceful rest, along with their place of protection until his return. The Star in the Crab’s claw, called Acubene in Hebrew means the sheltering or hiding place. Another star in CancerMa’alaph means assembled thousands. 23

5/26/21-This Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse visible only over the western US, is the 3rd of four Supermoons in 2021.

This requires that we take time to illustrate some principles of Biblical Astronomy and how proper Biblical Research is conducted in this area. God structured the heavens with the 12 main signs of the Mazzaroth, what many call the “Zodiac,” which is more of an astrological term. Astrology is a counterfeit of true Biblical Astronomy and to stay with accurate labels, we prefer to call things by their Biblical names. Job 38:31-32 refers to the Mazzaroth in his seasons. The 12 signs on the ecliptic circle were created and ordered by God in Gen. 1:14-17, and relate to Israel’s 12 tribes in [Gen. 49, Deut. 33] among other places. God also named and numbered the stars [Ps. 147:4] and a great majority of these sacred names are preserved for us into modern times. The 12 signs of the ecliptic tell the story of Jesus Christ the Promised Seed of the woman, in the first prophecy of this seed who is Jesus Christ; [Gen. 3:15] the only begotten Son of God. The theme of each constellation or star picture that contributes a key aspect of the overall redemption story told in the circle of the Mazzaroth, is supported by the individual star names in each constellation. This is why the ancient star names are the keys that unlock many truths of Biblical Astronomy. It comes down to researching these ancient Star names within the ancient constellations, that also have ancient designations found in God’s Word, to match and inter-relate these terms and see what God’s Word can tell us in the field of Biblical Astronomy. There are also the 36 decans, which have a long history holding many truths since there are 3 with each of the 12 constellations, totaling 36Astrology is not the only category that contains many errors in this category of Bible research. Others who delve into Biblical Astronomy take liberties that go far beyond the principles of true Biblical research. One of these categories of error involves the misuse of Strong’s Concordance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Strong’s Concordance with some of its related Lexicons for over 40 years, since I got into Biblical research in 1979. Used correctly, Strong’s number system for Greek and Hebrew words is a proven, invaluable tool of Bible research for multitudes. And as we ascertain the ancient star names used in God’s Word linked to their Strong’s number, we can see where these words, along with their Hebrew/Greek roots are used in the Bible for an accurate record of where, why, to whom, when, and how God’s Word utilizes its terms, to give us an extensive picture of a Biblical subject. However, some are misusing Strong’s numbers by correlating them with dates, and modern scientific designations of stars, for example from Comet or NGC numbers of the catalog of non-star celestial objects to support their favorite teaching themes in error.

Pastor Patrick compared Comet 323P to John the Baptist as a forerunner of Christ, announcing his arrival. Since Comets are usually portents of evil, this was not a good idea. He also linked the number of this Comet [323] to the corresponding number in Strong’s Concordance, with the meaning of this Greek word as a showing forth. However, as we are illustrating in Biblical AstronomyMercury-Gabriel is the Messenger Planet, who has the role of announcing or heralding an event or person. Mercury is linked to this speedy messenger planet because Mercury has the shortest and fastest orbit of any other planet in our Solar System, and has long been characterized in this role in ancient mythology. Since God is the One Who spun the planets in their orbits via to His perfect timetable, and He commands the presence of his angels to do His bidding, we should let His placement and position of His celestial bodies speak on their own.
Pastor Patrick also refers to the Greek word [Harpazo-G726] where the link relating to the Rev. 12 sign is evident; [Rev. 12:5] but the Rev. 12 sign takes place on 9-11 not 7-26, so I don’t immediately correlate it to the 7-26 date as a prediction, or the signs that take place on 7-26 [see below]. There are other examples of this kind of practice in the video, that only detracts from authentic Biblical Astronomy teaching. As we find in the narrative of these signs related to Comet 323P, each celestial body named in Scripture, carries its own message which relates what is going on with each event. As we compare these events with the known history of Biblical Astronomy, along with current events, we can recognize congruencies as they occur. This provides a solid footing as we compare current events with similar events in the history of Biblical Astronomy related to Hebrew feast and holy days, and the life and Ministry of Jesus Christ related to the Hebrew Calendar, Temple, or Tabernacle, and their sacred implements, etc. Since God first wrote the Gospel of the redemption story in the Stars, before it was ever written in Scripture, we must treat the Gospel in the Stars with the same care that we should handle the Holy Scripture. When we do, the Gospel in the Stars holds tremendous revelation that was disclosed to the Bible Patriarchs as their sole source of written words that were penned from the Hand of the Almighty Creator. These words must be allowed to speak for themselves, first and foremost which also holds true for the written Scripture, as the Apostle Peter tells us;

2 Peter 1:20-21 KJV – Knowing this first, no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.

With this short summary of Biblical Astronomy Research Principles, that guide the integrity of research from this blog and website, the reader has a basic idea of how these principles can preserve our content, guarding against private or one’s own interpretation of God’s Word, whether written in the Stars or in the Bible. There is naturally, much more to this subject, but we will leave that for another time. Here are the rest of the signs linked to Comet 323P in 2021.

6/10/21-Annular Solar Eclipse-a Ring of fire eclipse visible in eastern US, Canada, Greenland and Russia.

6/24/21-Comet 323P union with Venus the bright and Morning Star in Cancer, the Messiah’s Redeemed property held fast and a refuge for believers.

7/10-11/21-The Moon by-passes Comet 323P in Cancer. The next day on 7/12/21-Comet 323P in the body of Cancer, with the union of Venus and Mars in the left pincer of Cancer the crab. We know that this is a corrupted star picture from the Hebrew Mazzaroth because there is no word for “crab” in Hebrew.

7/19/21-Venus the bright and Morning Star in union with Regulus the king star in Leo. 

7/25/21-Comet 323P unified with Mercury the Messenger Planet, and the Sun as the light of the world in Cancer @ the Beehive Nebula at Praesepe, while Venus the bright and Morning Star and Mars are framing Regulus in Leo.

7/26-27/21-Sun by-passes Comet 323P in Cancer, with Mercury heralding the Sun also in Cancer, while Venus and Mars-Michael the Warrior Arch-Angel still frame the king star Regulus in Leo.

7/31/21-Mercury the Messenger Planet by-passes the Sun and Comet 323P in Cancer, with Mars-Michael unified at Regulus the king star, while Venus is mid-bodied in Leo.

8/11/21-With Comet 323P passing Cancer and the Sun heading towards Leo, there is a Mercury-Regulus union, with Mars mid-bodied in Leo, and the Moon in Leo’s tail section. Here Comet 323P is returning to its starting position between Leo and Cancer. This occurs 30 days before the Rev. 12 sign on 9-11-21.

8/21/21-Comet 323P has past the boundary of Cancer with Comet 8P Tuttle also in Cancer, on the 27th as this fly-by of Comets marks the return of 323P to its starting position. The Moon is between Jupiter-Saturn in Scorpius the Scorpion with the Sun in union with Regulus in Leo, and Mercury-Gabriel aligned with Mars-Michael both also aligned with Regulus in Leo.

9/11-12/21-Rev. 12 sign with Sun Clothing Virgo and the Moon at her feet, with the planets; Mercury-Venus framing Spica, and Mars aligned with Regulus in Leo. With the nine major stars of Leo, the addition of these 3 planets crowns Virgo with 12 stars. This is three days after the Rosh Hashanah/Shemita holy-day; 9-8-21, and the Trumpet FeastComet 8P Tuttle, also in Hydra, in its closest approach to Earth on 9-12-21, with Jupiter the king planet in Aquarius and Saturn nearby in Capricornus-depicting again Satan as a false-atoning sacrifice in Capricorn, seen not only in Jan 21‘, but also with Jupiter-Saturn’s Lunar union as Saturn passes into Capricornus; 6-24-20, three days after the Annular Solar eclipse marking the 1st motion of Comet 323P, that opened this “Year of the Cometframed between two Blood Moons. As we can see, this 3-day gap seems to mirror the 3 days between Christ’s Birth on 9-11-3BC on Rosh Hashanah, and the 1st Jupiter-Regulus union in Leo, marking the triple coronation ceremony of the Lord Jesus Christ, written in the Stars in 3-2 BC, as seen below!

Figure 10. Jupiter opens the triple crowning of Regulus in Leo, 9-14-3 BC, 3 days after Christ’s birth. 25

This Graphic shows the positions of Jupiter the King planet, triple crowning the King Star Regulus in Leo, Sept. 14th 3 BC, to Feb. 17th, 2 BC, and May 8th, 2 BC.

As this 3-day gap including the Hebrew New Year of Rosh Hashanah is mirrored both at the opening and closing of this Year of the Comet 323P, so also is the appearance of Saturn in Capricornus as the false atoning sacrifice, foreshadowing the anti-christ, aspects of Comet 323P. These signs frame the start and end of the motion of this Comet, along with other Comet’s we have pointed out like; 8P Tuttle, 2P Encke and Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2. Comet Neowise C/2020 F3 also reappears here about 9-11-21 in Libra the scales of judgment, which is consistent with other Comet activity in Hydra-the serpent destroyed, and its decans; Crater and Corvus the Raven-carrion eater. As we take note of these 3-day gaps on Hebrew Feast and Holy days involving the Rev.12 sign, at a time reflecting the birth of Christ, we should also recall the 3-day gap at the end of Christ’s earthly ministry, that he spent in the heart of the earth, prior to his resurrection, as he conquered death for all mankind. As we celebrate this holiday this coming weekend, we should be mindful of our victory in Jesus, as we prepare for his Second Coming, to meet him in the Air!

Happy Resurrection Saturday Everyone!
