ONE MONTH AT A TIME
To read and understand the ancient starry message of the coming of the Jewish Messiah in the sky, you will need to start with the month of September, not January as in our calendar.  Why? Because the story was written for a Jewish people and their annual calendar begins with the month of September. It begins with VIRGO (Virgin) and ends with LEO (the Lion of Judah, Yeshua, Christ). This remarkable story of salvation is told one month at a time through the 12 constellations called the MAZZAROTH (Hebrew for the starry crown in the heavens above). This alone is stunning but to see these ancient star names still being used in contemporary astronomy is as confirming as their mention in the Old Testament from a time before Job.
                     .
The HEAVENS DECLARE 
the GLORY of GOD

PSALMS 19:2-6
2 The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder's craft. 3 One day to the next conveys that message; one night to the next imparts that knowledge. 4 There is no word or sound; no voice is heard;5 Yet their report goes forth through all the earth, their message, to the ends of the world. God has pitched there a tent for the sun;  6  it comes forth like a bridegroom from his chamber, and like an athlete joyfully runs its course …..

MAZZAROTH
THE ANCIENT HEBREW 'MAZZAROTH' TELLS A REMARKABLE STORY IN THE SKY. THIS STORY IN THE STARS PRE DATES THE CHRISTIAN ERA, YET THE STORY IS ABOUT THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH, THE JEWISH MESSIAH.  ACCORDING TO THE OLD TESTAMENT, IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE HEAVENS BY THE HAND OF GOD. WHAT DOES 'MAZZAROTH MEAN?  IT IS A CIRCULAR 'BAND' OR 'CROWN' OF STARS DIVIDED INTO 12 CONSTELLATIONS (12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL) CALLED THE ZODIAC. ('the way' or 'the path')
+
ASTRONOMY
 Today, we know the study of the stars is called 'ASTRONOMY. (Under no circumstances does the word 'Mazzaroth' or 'Zodiac' originate in 'Astrology'.  Astrology is a deception by the Serpent of Genesis, whose intention is to put 'strange gods' in front of the story of 'Salvation History', the story of Him who Saves. For more information, see 'ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY'  below written by a Catholic Scripture Scholar BELOW)

22 False messiahs and false prophets will arise and will perform signs and wonders in order to mislead, if that were possible, the elect. 23 Be watchful! I have told it all to you beforehand.

HOW DO BIRTH STONES 
FIT INTO THE 12 SIGNS IN THE SKY?
+
 'in the order of their birth'.
EXODUS 28:9-12
God's instructions to Moses for Aaron
 9 "Get two onyx stones and engrave on them the names of the sons of Israel:  10 six of their names on one stone, and the other six on the other stone, in the order of their birth.  11 As a gem cutter engraves a seal, so shall you have the two stones engraved with the names of the sons of Israel and then mounted in gold filigree work. 12 Set these two stones on the shoulder straps of the ephod as memorial stones of the sons of Israel. Thus Aaron shall bear their names on his shoulders as a reminder before the LORD.
+
BREASTPIECE OF DECISION
God continues to instruct Moses, using 12 stones each believed to have the attributes of that tribe. The stones were often identified by their country or origin and various bible translations do not always identify the same stones or placements. (i.e. some translations include turquoise (Turkey), some do not.)
+
15 "The breastpiece of decision you shall also have made, embroidered like the ephod with gold thread and violet, purple and scarlet yarn on cloth of fine linen twined. 16 It is to be square when folded double, a span high and a span wide 17 On it you shall mount four rows of precious stones: in the first row, a carnelian, a topaz and an emerald; 18 in the second row, a garnet, a sapphire and a beryl;  19  in the third row, a jacinth, an agate and an amethyst; 20  in the fourth row, a chrysolite, an onyx and a jasper.These stones are to be mounted in gold filigree work, 21 twelve of them to match the names of the sons of Israel, each stone engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes."

PRAY THE BIRTHSTONE ROSARY
Instead of wearing your birthstone as jewelry, pray your prayers on a rosary dedicated to the stone given your month or the month of a loved one. Father Joe suggested dedicating and praying a birthstone rosary of a loved one or family member (living or dead). How much more personal is this response than jewelry. We are brought into history with this prayer action. The birthstones used here were inspired by the scripture above and standardized and designated by the American Gem Society in 1938.
+
ONE MONTH AT A TIME
The story in the stars will be put together one month at a time, starting with the Hebrew calendar, September VIRGO (the Virgin) and ending with August,  LEO (the Lion/Christ). We were all born under the sign of the CROSS, but as we continue our journey, month by month, through the sky, give the stars back to God who created them, note His glory and His story in each of the 12 constellations.

PSALMS  115:15-16
May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
16 The heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth is given to us.

do not buy the lie
ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY
Why are we entering into such a controversial subject for some? 1. To remove the deception of the evil one and give back the glory to God (see Psalms 115:15 above)   2. To set our sites on our true home, the heavens above, the new Jerusalem.
ROMANS 5: 8-11
But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. 9 How much more then, since we are now justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath. 10 Indeed, if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, once reconciled, will we be saved by his life. 11 Not only that, but we also boast of God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

3 Tell the elders of Israel, too: Take a he-goat for a sin offering, a calf and a lamb, both unblemished yearlings, for a holocaust .... 15 Thereupon he had the people's offering brought up. Taking the goat that was for the people's sin offering, he slaughtered it and offered it up for sin as before.
+
ISAIAH 53:4-5
4  Yet it was our infirmities that he bore, our sufferings that he endured, While we thought of him as stricken, as one smitten by God and afflicted.
5  But he was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins, Upon him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by his stripes we were healed. 6  We had all gone astray like sheep, each following his own way; But the LORD laid upon him the guilt of us all.  7  Though he was harshly treated, he submitted and opened not his mouth; Like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before the shearers, he was silent and opened not his mouth.

ROMANS 5: 8-11
But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. 9 How much more then, since we are now justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath. 10 Indeed, if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, once reconciled, will we be saved by his life. 11 Not only that, but we also boast of God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.


 WHAT DOES A CATHOLIC

~ ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY ~

SCRIPTURE SCHOLAR SAY?
.

MARK 13: 22
22 False messiahs and false prophets will arise and will perform signs and wonders in order to mislead, if that were possible, the elect. 23 Be watchful! I have told it all to you beforehand.

THE ZODIAC DOES NOT 
HAVE ROOTS IN HOROSCOPES
 What we know as the star constellations - pictures in the night sky - are often called in English the "signs of the Zodiac", is known in Hebrew as "the Mazzeroth", star constellations placed by God Himself, Job 38:31; Isaiah 13:10; Amos 5:8. This placement of the stars by God was done to tell the Gospel plan of redemption before the Bible was put into writing. The word Zodiac is a term used in astronomy, Job 9:9 (lb).  God’s message in the stars where the book of creation speaks to man of God's awesome power, Psalm 19:1–6 (Note words “speech,” “language,” “voice” in the text. Then compare verses 7–13.).
+
THE BIBLE CONDEMNS ASTROLOGY
The science of Astronomy is NEVER to be confused with ASTROLOGY which is fortune telling and the Bible condemns.  ASTRONOMY is the science dealing with the phenomena outside the earth’s atmosphere but especially concerned with the observable arrangements, motions, and characteristics of the heavenly  bodies planets, stars, asteroids and universes in space. The word “astronomy” is based on two Greek words meaning “the law of the stars.”
+
ASTRONOMY AND ITS VALUES
  Astronomy is by no means a modern science. Human beings have always been preoccupied with the heavens. The concern of the earliest civilizations with the universe appears to have been mainly intellectual curiosity and the need for navigational orientation were certainly additional factors. (Also remember the star of Bethlehem that guided the 3 kings to the child Jesus. They have been called 'readers of the stars', and 'astronomers'. The term astrologers is questionable)
+
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
The Bible provides some interesting insights about astronomy. According to Genesis 1:14–19 the sun and moon, along with the stars, have the function of giving light on the earth, determining the seasons, and functioning as “signs.” The word “season” may denote festal seasons as well as the annual seasons. The Hebrew calendar was a lunar-solar calendar similar to that of the Babylonians. Hebrew festal seasons were based on the phases of the moon. The function of the heavenly bodies as signs seems to relate to their delineation of the heavens, permitting human beings on earth to orient themselves, navigate land and the high
seas and know the stars were created by God.

MARK 7:8
'You disregard God's commandment but cling to human tradition.'
+
See the 1st of the 10 commandments (Thou shalt have no other gods before Me). Astrology is a 'Human tradition' which  puts other gods in front of the Lord (horoscopes) which comes from the sin of pride, the sin that began in Eden.
