'The HEAVENS DECLARE the GLORY of GOD' (Psalm 19:2)
NOVEMBER - SCORPIO - Scorpion - Topaz, Citrine: 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 of 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 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. (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 HEBREW CALENDAR
The first sign or constellation in the story of the coming Jewish Messiah according to the ancient Hebrew Calendar is 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 contain stars that carry their original names - 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.

ANCIENT IMAGE OF SCORPIO: (Scorpion, Serpent): The enemy is introduced. The mighty Scorpion is attempting to sting the foot of a man, the constellation ORPHIUCHUS ('The Serpent Holder') whose foot is resting on the back of SCORPIO.   His tail is ready to strike out. SAGGITARIUS (the archer and mighty one coming to conquor) has his bow drawm and arrow pointing directly at SCORPIO. The Hebrews saw this constellation as AKRAB  (Scorpion or 'Conflict' or 'War'), all of which ties in to the same theme.

ANCIENT NAMES STILL USED TODAY

~ THE STARS of  SCORPIO ~

AND THEIR MEANINGS:

*ANTARES*
(upper torso of Scorpian) Arabic: 'The wounding'
And in Latin, COR SCORPII ('Heart of the Scorpion)

*LESATH*
(tail of the Scorpian)  'The Perverse', Hebrew: LESHA 'The Accursed'


GENESIS 3:13-15
13 The LORD God then asked the woman, "Why did you do such a thing?" The woman answered, "The serpent tricked me into it, so I ate it." 14 Then the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; On your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you eat all the days of your life. 15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel."

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.



 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
Note the 3 rows of 4 stones, one for each of the 12 tribes of Israel.

 Here, in this old 1867 image, we see the child Jesus being presented
at the temple by his parents which was the tradition.. He is reaching
 out for Joseph on our left and is mother Mary on our right.


 JOB 38:31-32
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?
