JULY - CANCER: (CRAB  'Holding the Posession') or (SCARABAEUS BEETLE) FACING LEO, LIVES IN TWO ENVIRONMENTS, Many legs suggsting multitudes redeemed, - RUBY, ONYX, CARNELIAN. 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 King of Judah. (the tribe of Judah). It is the last constellation to be read in the Hebrew Calendar, Virgo (Virgin) is 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 (12)twelve stars.'  What does this crown of 12 stars mean?  The Church? 12 Apostles? 12 Tribes of Israel? The, crown of stars, the circular starry story of Her son's life?  (The number 12 also symbolizes 'governmental perfection' reminding us that God is in control.) Do they all merge into one meaning? One source? 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.)
+
 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.

IDENTIFYING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
ASTRONOMY AND ASTROLOGY

PSALM 147: 2-5
2 The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem, gathers the dispersed of Israel, 3 Heals the broken hearted, bind up their wounds, 4. Numbers all the stars, calls each of them by name. 5 Great is our Lord, vast in power, with wisdom beyond measure.

ISAIAH 40:11
11  Like a shepherd he feeds his flock; in his arms he gathers the lambs, Carrying them in his bosom, and leading the ewes with care. 12  Who has cupped in his hand the waters of the sea, and marked off the heavens with a span? Who has held in a measure the dust of the earth, weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance? 13 Who has directed the spirit of the LORD, or has instructed him as his counselor? 14  Whom did he consult to gain knowledge? Who taught him the path of judgment, or showed him the way of understanding? 15  Behold, the nations count as a drop in the bucket, as dust on the scales; the coastlands weigh no more than powder.

BEADS, GIVEN TO GOD


 JOHN 10:4-7
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, 4 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.

EZEKIEL. 34:11,14,15,28
11 For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will look after and tend my sheep. 12  As a shepherd tends his flock when he finds himself among his scattered sheep, so will I tend my sheep. I will rescue them from every place where they were scattered when it was cloudy and dark .... 14  In good pastures will I pasture them, and on the mountain heights of Israel shall be their grazing ground. There they shall lie down on good grazing ground, and in rich pastures shall they be pastured on the mountains of Israel.  15 I myself will pasture my sheep; I myself will give them rest, says the Lord GOD ... 28  They shall no longer be despoiled by the nations or devoured by beasts of the earth, but shall dwell secure, with no one to frighten them. 29  I will prepare for them peaceful fields for planting; they shall no longer be carried off by famine in the land, or bear the reproaches of the nations.

PSALM 19:1-5
1 For the leader. A psalm of David. 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.


 
ANCIENT IMAGE OF CANCER(the crab) : Also Khan-Cer (Roman) for 'The Travelers Resting Place For The Encircled or The Embraced'). Cancer is the next to the last constellation in the Hebrew Zodiac.  The image of a crab faces the last constellation, Leo the Lion (Christ)  The symbolism of the Crab reminds us that it is a creature that lives in two environments (land and sea) as Christ lives in heavens and earth. The many legs symbolize the multitudes or members. (tribes, nations)  Two pincers symbolize,, 'holding fast to that which is good'.  Also known as the Scarabeus Beetle, held sacred by Egyptians - 'Life after this life'. Or possibly another earlier figure that related to sheep gates because of name of some of the stars below:

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" (crown of stars) or star constellations set in place 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.
