Constellations Behind the Blood-Moons
The constellations behind the blood-moons of 2014-15 are not just background stars, they are players in the last-days drama. The blood-moons at Passover in the spring are both located in Virgo (the Virgin mother). Those at Tabernacles in the fall are both in Pisces (with its two nets or fishes. There is movement of the blood-moons, towards the larger fish facing east, thought to represent Gentile unbelievers, an ominous omen for them in 2015.
Behind our Lord at the crucifixion was a darkened blood-moon on Passover of 32 AD. Overhead, was the pattern of a sacrifical Ram in the stars - Aries. Under its forefoot was the constellation Pisces, with its two nets, one for believers pointing north and one for non-believers pointing east. The great king (symbolized by the Ram) is a skilled fisherman. He casts out His nets to gather both fishes. The large fish facing east is forever circumnavigating the ecliptic east to west. Though caught in the net cast by the Lamb, the bigger fish will not rise up to God's throne in the North. The smaller fish is also caught in the net of the Ram. This net is pointed to the sides of the North, where the Throne of the Father is found. It is the place in the northern heavens around which all things revolve and where the Father presides, sustaining all creation. It is the nail at the center, where light originates. The North Star is near it, called the "North Nail" by a number of ancient cultures.
The blood-moon on Passover of 2014 was very near Spica in the constellation Virgo, the woman of Revelation 12. The second blood-moon of the Tetrad appearing on Tabernacles of 2014 was positioned within Pisces, moving toward the larger fish facing east. The third blood moon of Passover in 2015 will be in Virgo again, this time near her upper body. The fourth blood-moon of September 2015 will be just under the larger fish facing east. This is an ominous omen for it, with tribulation and judgment coming.
Three and one-half years after the first blood-moon of Passover, 2014, Virgo will give birth to a "man child" on Rosh Hashanah of 2017, when John's Revelation 12 sign re-appears in the night sky on the king's day, New Year's Day. This child is "the seed of the woman", marked by the bundle or "branch" of wheat in her left hand. It is now fully "seeded". The Luminous star Spica is associated with "the Branch", a servant of the Lord sent as His "Elias" to gather righteous Israel in the last-days and, restore all things (D&C 77:9&14), including building the temple in Jerusalem in the last-days (Zech. 3:8; 6:12-13). He is a "branch" of the Tree of Life, a "son of God" and a prince, one day to be king. He speaks truth and wears a garment of light (D&C 85:7), like His father, the King of kings.
Great changes are ahead of us all in coming judgment by the Great King, and then creation thereafter in the establishment of the Lord's kingdom on earth, a place of peace, justice, and rest where the King of kings will provide a great feast during the marriage banquet of the Bridegroom and the Bride Israel. Who of all those invited will put on the wedding garment of light and come to this joyous ingathering?
