Birthday Rosaries from the Rosary Workshop  - RBS2.God The Geometer
 GOD AS ARCHITECT / BUILDER
GEOMETER / CRAFTSMAN
 This wonderful 13c Icon below, images God in the process of creation. He, who made the mountains, oceans and fertile land, He who arranged the stars, numbered the stars and calls each star by name,  has done so for a reason. Nothing is by chance. As we search out these principles, we are called to worship Him. Note how he delights in the smallest of details including - our birthstones!

PSALMS  115:15-16 
  15  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.

 Above: From the Frontispiece of Bible Moralisse, dated 13C. It is titled: "God as Architect, Builder, Geometer, Craftsman" (Codex Vindobonensis 2554 (French, ca. 1250), in the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek.)

GOD AS 
ARCHITECT
"Science, and particularly geometry and astronomy / astrology, was linked directly to the divine for most medieval scholars. The compass in this 13th century manuscript is a symbol of God's act of Creation. God has created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship God."

AMOS 9:6 
I have built heaven, my upper chamber, and established my vault over the earth; I summon the waters of the sea and pour them upon the surface of the earth, I, the LORD by name.

PROVERBS 8:22
 22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his ways, before he made anything from the beginning. 23 I was set up from eternity, and of old, before the earth was made. 
 +
24 The depths were not as yet, and I was already conceived, neither had the fountains of waters as yet sprung out. 25 The mountains, with their huge bulk, had not as yet been established: before the hills, I was brought forth: 26 He had not yet made the earth, nor the rivers, nor the poles of the world. 
 +
27 When he prepared the heavens, I was present: when with a certain law, and compass, he enclosed the depths:28 When he established the sky above, and poised the fountains of waters:29 When he compassed the sea with its bounds, and set a law to the waters that they should not pass their limits: when he balanced the foundations of the earth; 30 I was with him forming all things: and was delighted every day, playing before him at all times; 
 +
31 playing in the world: and my delights were to be with the children of men. 32 Now, therefore, you children, hear me: blessed are they that keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. 34 Blessed is the man that hears me, and that watches daily at my gates, and waits at the posts of my doors. 35 He that shall find me, shall find life, and shall have salvation from the Lord.

THE STORY OF SALVATION 
WRITTEN IN THE STARS. 
+
COULD HE? WOULD HE? DID HE?
Uncovering God's ancient salvation message in the sky is not easy. But our God is clear about creating, arranging and naming the stars for a specific purpose. Scripture assures us of this and many of these stars still carry their ancient names to back his word. Ask yourself, 'could he be telling of the coming Jewish Messiah?', 'Would he?' Decide for yourself.
PSALMS 147: 2-5 
 2 The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem, gathers the dispersed of Israel, 3  Heals the broken hearted, binds 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.

CREATION 
PRAISES ITS CREATOR

PSALMS 98
  4 Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth; break into song; sing praise. 5 Sing praise to the LORD .... 7 Let the sea and what fills it resound, the world and those who dwell there. 8 Let the rivers clap their hands, the mountains shout with them for joy. 
+
And again in PSALM 148: 
  Hallelujah! 1 Praise the LORD from the heavens; give praise in the heights.  2 Praise him, all you angels; give praise, all you hosts. 3 Praise him, sun and moon; give praise, all shining stars.

CREATION LAID OUT 

SCRIPTURAL ORIGIN of BIRTHSTONES, 
(12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL - ANCIENT STORY IN THE STARS)
The birthstones we use today are rooted in the 12 tribes of Israel and the breastpiece stones of the ancient priests garments  God selected each stone and named each one after one of the 12 tribes of Israel according to their birth. They were given to Moses by God and recorded in the Old Testament. 
+
SEE EXODUS 28:6:

 THE EPHOD AND BREASTPIECE
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.

(This ancient study of the stars has nothing to do with Horoscopes which is against the teachings of the Church.  It is not about fortelling our future, but points instead  to our Salvation.)

The 'Mazzaroth' - (Old Testament Hebrew for 'Zodiac', 'THE WAY, Circle' or 'Crown of Stars'.) tells the story in the sky from ancient times. Read more to see how God's promise of salvation reached the far corners of the earth through these 12 +  signs.

EXODUS 28:6:

    . THE EPHOD AND BREASTPIECE.
6
The ephod* they shall make of gold thread and of violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, embroidered on cloth of fine linen twined.b
7
It shall have a pair of shoulder straps joined to its two upper ends.
8
The embroidered belt of the ephod shall extend out from it and, like it, be made of gold thread, of violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, and of fine linen twined.
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 names of the remaining 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.
13
Make filigree rosettes of gold,c
14
as well as two chains of pure gold, twisted like cords, and fasten the cordlike chains to the filigree rosettes.
15
d 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.
22
When the chains of pure gold, twisted like cords, have been made for the breastpiece,
23
you shall then make two rings of gold for it and fasten them to the two upper ends of the breastpiece.
24
The gold cords are then to be fastened to the two rings at the upper ends of the breastpiece,
25
the other two ends of the cords being fastened in front to the two filigree rosettes which are attached to the shoulder straps of the ephod.
26
Make two other rings of gold and put them on the two lower ends of the breastpiece, on its edge that faces the ephod.
27
Then make two more rings of gold and fasten them to the bottom of the shoulder straps next to where they join the ephod in front, just above its embroidered belt.
28
Violet ribbons shall bind the rings of the breastpiece to the rings of the ephod, so that the breastpiece will stay right above the embroidered belt of the ephod and not swing loose from it.
29
Whenever Aaron enters the sanctuary, he will thus bear the names of the sons of Israel on the breastpiece of decision over his heart as a constant reminder before the LORD.
30
In this breastpiece of decisione you shall put the Urim and Thummim,* that they may be over Aaron’s heart whenever he enters the presence of the LORD. Thus he shall always bear the decisions for the Israelites over his heart in the presence of the LORD.
