'The HEAVENS DECLARE the GLORY of GOD' (Psalm 19:2)
SEPTEMBER - VIRGO - Virgin - Virgin Mary, Sapphire, Lapis: For most of our life we have marveled over the silent heavens above. On a clear night it can appear like a warm assuring blanket, even in the cold. We hear stories about how each star is a tiny 'crack in the heavenly floor', shining through to remind us of God's glory. Angels in the sky!  So many things run through our heads. We forget that people for thousands of years have done the same thing. But when God created the stars, did he just toss them randomly into space - or did he write a message of hope and salvation for all his children to see from the days before the fall of Adam?  Scripture tells us he placed and named each of the stars. Why?

12 SIGNS, 12 TRIBES, 12 STONES, 12 STARS
How better to reach all his children than inscribed through the stars above. Did he write his love story through 12 signs of the Mazzaroth about the coming of his son before Christ was born? He could - but did he? Today we know there are 12 constellations in the sky, one for each of the 12 tribes of Israel - 'in the order of their birth', commanded God. The most commonly known constellation /tribe combination is Leo (Christ), Leo the Lion of Judah. (the tribe of Judah). It is the last constellation to be read in the Hebrew Calendar, Virgo (Virgin) the first. Each tribe was also assigned a stone by God to Moses.  A stone to be worn on the ancient priests garment called the Ephod (Breastplate of Decision). And Revelations 12: 12:1. And a great sign appeared in heaven: 'A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.'  What does it mean? (The Church? 12 Apostles? 12 Tribes of Israel? The circular starry story of Her son's life?)  The number 12 also symbolizes 'governmental perfection' reminding us that God is in control. Lets go on:

 THE ANCIENT  HEBREW CALENDAR
(starts with September, not January)
The first sign or constellation in the story of the coming Jewish Messiah according to the ancient Hebrew Calendar is September - Virgo (Virgin). It lies between LIBRA (Scales of Justice) and LEO (Christ the King). It is one of the largest constellations in the sky. Ancients saw it as the Virgin (seed of the woman, virgin birth) holding an ear of corn in her left hand (promised seed), a baby across her waist (the coming Messiah) and a branch in the right hand (shoot). See stars of Virgo below.
+
 HE NUMBERS THE STARS - CALLS EACH BY NAME
What do these ancient star names reveal? Like Virgo, Many constellations still carry the original names of the stars - names that point out the story of redemption in the sky. To understand better about their meaning and how they told the story, continue reading the information below.  Does the word 'Astrology' or 'Horoscope' creep into your head? Forget it, we are uncovering the lie and giving the heavens back to God. We point them out, you decide.

ASTRONOMY AND ASTROLOGY

STARS OF GUADALUPE

ISAIAH 7:11,14
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.

the LORD who comes, who comes to govern the earth, To govern the world with justice and the peoples with faithfulness.

JOHN 12:24
24  Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.

ISAIAH 6:5,6
5 For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace. 6 His dominion is vast and forever peaceful, From David's throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains By judgment and justice, both now and forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!

 ZECHARIAH 6:12-13
12  And say to him: Thus says the LORD of hosts: Here is a man whose name is Shoot, and where he is he shall sprout, and he shall build the temple of the LORD.  13 Yes, he shall build the temple of the LORD, and taking up the royal insignia, he shall sit as ruler upon his throne. The priest shall be put at his right hand, and between the two of them there shall be friendly understanding.


ANCIENT NAMES STILL USED TODAY

~ THE STARS of  VIRGO ~

AND THEIR MEANINGS:

 ANCIENT IMAGE OF VIRGO: 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 an ear of 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 57 ad).  And in Coptic, she was called 'The Desired Branch'. Latin Virgin, Virga = a branch.

SPICA
(corn in her left hand) Latin: 'ear of corn'
read ISAIAH 7:11,14 above

ZAVIJAVEH
(star on her shoulder) ‘gloriously beautiful’
read ISAIAH 4:2 above

VINDEMIATRIX (AL MUREDDIN)
(right hand branch) ‘wine dresser’ or in Chaldean: ‘the son’
or ‘shoot or branch who cometh’, 'who shall come down / who 
shall have dominion'
read JEREMIAH 23:5.6 above

to see how associated constellations and the ancient star names confirm the story of the coming of the Jewish Messiah and Salvation History in the heavens. 
 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."


WHAT DOES A CATHOLIC

~ ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY ~

SCRIPTURE SCHOLAR SAY?


 
 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.
+

JOB 38:31-33
31 Have you fitted a curb to the Pleiades, or loosened the bonds of Orion? 32 Can you bring forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or guide the Bear with its train? 33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens; can you put into effect their plan on the earth?



STARS ON HER

~ GUADALUPAN IMAGE ~

MANTLE


 THE STARS OF HER MANTLE
It is believed that the stars on Our Lady of Guadalupe's garment aligned with the stars in the sky at the moment of her appearance on the tilma of Juan Diego in 1531. This star imagery takes up one half the sky along the horizon and may be seen by finding ORION (which is at her feet, and is the birthplace of stars! Follow along past LEO (Christ the King who rests on her stomach) and past VIRGO virgin) to the constellation CORONA (crown) that sat on her head at that time. It is comforting to sense that she is always looking over us in her starry robe that told the Aztecs that she is the Queen of Heaven. Note too, that the constellation HYDRA (Serpent) lies almost the full length of her to our right. Mary often speaks about how close he is, always nearby.


 PRESENTATION

~ EPHOD IMAGE ~

 AT THE TEMPLE

 The 'Breastplate of Decision' was worn
by the Priests from the time of Aaron, given to Moses by God
