AUGUST - LEO (Lion of Judah - Christ) - (12th and final sign of the story - 'The King of Beasts' , 'Seal of Justice'.  PERIDOT. ONYX. CARNELIAN. (The Lion / Lamb both represent Christ )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 through12 signs of the Mazzaroth about the coming of his son before Christ was born? He could - but did he? Today we know there are12 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) 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 Revelations12: 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 12also 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 (Lion of Judah - Christ the Kng). 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.

NUMBERS 24:8-9
8  It is God who brought him out of Egypt, a wild bull of towering might. He shall devour the nations like grass, their bones he shall strip bare. 9  He lies crouching like a lion, or like a lioness; who shall arouse him? Blessed is he who blesses you, and cursed is he who curses you!

REVELATION 5:9-11
9  They sang a new hymn: "Worthy are you to receive the scroll and to break open its seals, for you were slain and with your blood you purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue, people and nation. 10  You made them a kingdom and priests for our God, and they will reign on earth." 11  I looked again and heard the voices of many angels who surrounded the throne and the living creatures and the elders. They were countless in number,

REVELATION 5:12-14
12  and they cried out in a loud voice: "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing." 13  Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, everything in the universe, cry out: "To the one who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor, glory and might, forever and ever."   14  The four living creatures answered, "Amen," and the elders fell down and worshiped.

17  I see him, though not now; I behold him, though not near: A star shall advance from Jacob, and a staff shall rise from Israel, That shall smite the brows of Moab, and the skulls of all the Shuthites, 18 Till Edom is dispossessed, and no fugitive is left in Seir. Israel shall do valiantly, 19  and Jacob shall overcome his foes.

 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 LEO  (the Lion of Judah): The 12th Constellation, and last in the MAZZAROTH (story that began with Virgo (the Virgin, Mary (September).  The image of a Lion, a fine and noble creature about to pounce on the enemy below, the serpent / snake HYDRA (Devil). The Lion is imaged just above the head of VIRGO (Virgin-Mary) and facing CANCER. Above LEO is URSA MAJOR (the SHEEPFOLD).The Lion is to be seen again in Revelation 5: 5 (see) where it is Prefigured as the only one who could open the scroll, the document that restored mankind after the fall of Adam.   The Lion is also seen as the Lamb in Revelation. In Hebrew, the constellation LEO is known as ARIEH (Hebrew: Lion). NOTE: The Lion and the Lamb both represent Christ, possibly the two natures (Power to destroy the enemy and that of leadership and love.

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 highseas and know the stars were created by God.
