READ the ANCIENT STORY  #I
   written in the sky by the hand of God about the coming
of t he Jewish Messiah  - beginning with the first month of the Jewish
calendar - September (Virgo the Virgin)

.
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. 
+
BEGINNING WITH 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 told in the stars predates the Christian Era, yet the story is about the coming of the the Messiah, the Jewish Messiah. Jesus was a Jew.  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'.  They are found in the Old Testament. Today the term 'Astrology' is a deception by the Serpent of Genesis, whose intention is to put 'strange gods' in front of the story of 'Salvation History' in the stars,  The story of Him who Saves, written by God himself about who was to come. . 
+
For more information, see 'ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY'  below written by a Priest who is a Catholic Scripture Scholar BELOW) Think about where this concept of the stars leads - it leads to Christ. Astrology leads to self.
+
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.

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.)
+
EXODUS 28:15-21
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, our spiritual advisor, 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.

REMEMBER, 
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 (King of Judah / Chirst). 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.

  STARS IN THE CONSTELLATION
VIRGO(virgin)
The seed of the woman shall come
 ANCIENT IMAGE: 
VIRGO is the first in the series of 12 constellations that tell the starry story of the coming of the Jewish Messiah, ending in LEO (August). this follows the Jewish calendar that begins in September. This constellation is recognized throughout the world as 'Virgin'. (Today we see her as Mary), child across stomach (Messiah), as imaged by the early Babylonians, Egyptians and was recorded as 'The Great Mother'. She has corn in left hand ('Promised Seed'), branch in right ('Shoot'). ('The Promised Seed of the Woman Who Comes'). 
+
Hebrews called this constellation BETHULAH or ALMAH ('Virgin'). The Greeks called it PARTHENOS ('Virgin') and the Arabians: ADARAH ('Pure Virgin' or 'Sunbel', the latter meaning "An Ear of Corn' which confirms the seed or Christ). As early as 5000 bc, the Chinese called this constellation 'The Barren Woman'. It is interesting that in Syriac (India) she is called by the name similar to the Hebrew, BETHULTO (St Thomas brought Christianity to India in 52 ad, - a curious possibility).  And in Coptic, she was called 'The Desired Branch'. Latin: Virgin, Virga = a branch.

*SPICA*
 ON CORN, IN HER LEFT HAND
(Latin: ‘The Promised Seed’, ‘Seed of the One Who Comes’)
Originally called *ZERAH* (Hebrew: 'The Seed')
also, one of the brightest stars in the heavens.
+
 ISAIAH 7:11,14
11 Ask for a sign from the LORD, your God; let it be deep as the nether world, or high as the sky! ... 14  Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel. 

*ZAVIJAVEH*
STAR ON HER SHOULDER
(‘Gloriously Beautiful’) 
+
ISAIAH 4:2 
2 On that day, The branch of the LORD will be luster and glory, and the fruit of the earth will be honor and splendor for the survivors of Israel.

JEREMIAH 23:5-6
5 Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up a righteous shoot to David; As king he shall reign and govern wisely, he shall do what is just and right in the land.  6  In his days Judah shall be saved, Israel shall dwell in security. This is the name they give him: "The LORD our justice."

ANCIENT IMAGE: 
COMA: Image of mother sitting on a throne holding a child in one hand - his head higher than his mother's. COMA: ‘the desired one’, 'son of God'.  In the other hand she holds two ears of corn.  This image reflects the constellation VIRGO. Some of the stars in the constellation are *SUBILAH* (Hebrew: 'Who Bears') , *AZIMON* ('Two Ears of Corn'), *AL-AZAL* ('The Branch'). It is believed by many that the Star of Bethlehem was in this constellation. 
+
----==HAGGI 2:7==----
7 I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will come in, And I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of hosts. 
+
----==HEBREWS 1:5==----
"You are my son; this day I have begotten you"? Or again: "I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me"?

CENTAURUS (half man / half horse)
ANCIENT IMAGE: 
CENTAURUS:Half man, half horse, riding over *CRUX* (southern cross), spear in hand, shield in the other. (Half man, half God) sacrificing *VICTIMA* ('An Animal Slain') as symbol of Christ, offering himself as victim who chose to die as a sin offering, Also ‘despised one(despised by men).
+
-----==ISAIAH 53:2-6==----
He grew up like a sapling before him, like a shoot from the parched earth; There was in him no stately bearing to make us look at him, nor appearance that would attract us to him. 3 He was spurned and avoided by men, a man of suffering, accustomed to infirmity, One of those from whom men hide their faces, spurned, and we held him in no esteem. 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.

BOOTES (The Coming One)
(ARCHTURUS)
ANCIENT IMAGE: 
BOOTES (Greek): 'The great shepherd'. The brightest star on his left knee is *ARCHTURUS* ('He Comes’, ‘The Coming One’, ‘The One Who Rules’ (Christ), holding a shepherds hook where the star *AL-KALURPOS* ('The Shepherds Crook') is in one hand capturing CORONA ('The Crown')  from SERPENS ('The Devil). A Sickle is held high in his left hand pointing to the stars in URSA MAJOR or the handle of the BIG DIPPER, and the star *MERGA* ('Sickle' or 'Who Bruises') is pointing towards the trail of stars from the sheepfold and forming the handle of the BIG DIPPER / URSA MAJOR).
+
The handle stars are lost sheep coming out of/going into the open gate of the SHEEPFOLD. The stars still carrying the ancient names of lost sheep: *DUBEH* ('flock'). *ALIOTH* ('she goat'), *MIZAR* ('separate'), *AL COR* ('the lamb'), *AL KAID* ('the assembled'). He separates the sheep from the goats. (Scripture refers to Christ as the SHEEPGATE) 
+
The star on the head of BOOTES is called *NEKKA* ('The Pierced'), and left calf *MURPHRIDE* ('Who Separates'). BOOTES is also known as ARCHTURUS ('He Cometh').
+
----==JOHN 10:1-9=----
1 "Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber. 2 But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice, as he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has driven out all his own, he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him, because they recognize his voice. 5 But they will not follow a stranger; they will run away from him, because they do not recognize the voice of strangers." 6 Although Jesus used this figure of speech, they did not realize what he was trying to tell them. 7  So Jesus said again, "Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who came [before me] are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. 
+
----==JOHN 10:11-16=---- 
11 I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 A hired man, who is not a shepherd and whose sheep are not his own, sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away, and the wolf catches and scatters them. 13 This is because he works for pay and has no concern for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me,  15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I will lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd. 
+
----==REVELATION 14:14-15=----
14 Then I looked and there was a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud one who looked like a son of man, with a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand.  15 Another angel came out of the temple, crying out in a loud voice to the one sitting on the cloud, "Use your sickle and reap the harvest, for the time to reap has come, because the earth's harvest is fully ripe." 
+
 ----==MATTHEW 25:31-33==----
25:31. And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty. 32. And all nations shall be gathered together before him: and he shall separate them one from another, as the sepherd separates the sheep from the goats: 33. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand but the goats on his left.

ABOUT SHEEPFOLDS
AND URSAS AND DIPPERS 
GREATER and LESSER SHEEPFOLDS: The ancients called these two constellations (greater and lesser) Sheepfolds as noted above, with Christ as the Sheep Gate. URSA MAJOR and URSA MINOR: each represent a non existent bear with a long tail and this title comes from ancient times, translations possibly add to the confusion. BIG and LITTLE DIPPERS were believed named by the people traveling across the great plains during the movement West in America but may have come from earlier sources. 

----== JOHN 10:7==----
 7 So Jesus said again, "Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep.

-----==JOHN 10:17-18==-----
17 This is why the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own. I have power to lay it down, and power to take it up again. 8 This command I have received from my Father."

+
-----==HEBREWS 2:7-9==-----
7 You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor,  8  subjecting all things under his feet." In "subjecting" all things (to him), he left nothing not "subject to him." Yet at present we do not see "all things subject to him," 9  but we do see Jesus "crowned with glory and honor" because he suffered death, he who "for a little while" was made "lower than the angels," that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
+
-----==ZECHERIAH 9:16==-----
16  And the LORD, their God, shall save them on that day, his people, like a flock. For they are the jewels in a crown raised aloft over his land. 

'The price deficient balanced by the price which covers.
The Cross is endured by the Victim who is slain, but receives the Crown.'

PSALMS 68:33

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.

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.


PRAY AND DISCERN
Always pray and discern what you read as it is the fruit of the subject that reveals its source. Our information here is very, very basic. Because of space we have been unable to show how these constellations tie together and unite the story in fullness.

Search engines provide a large list of similar subjects but are not fully Christian based. Our sources include two unpublished papers from Catholic scholars (Priests) and several Christian books on the subject for those who wish to read more. See link below.

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.
