34. Astrology and 12 Zodiac Astrological Signs, Symbols and Meanings

Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces

We all know that we can use the stars, sun and moon to tell the days and seasons and years.  But do you know that God put these lights in heaven to give us SIGNS about the wonderful glory of God and His handiwork (Gen. 1: 14; Ps. 19: 1-6)? The origin, real Intelligent Design astrology and meaning of the twelve signs of the Zodiac symbols were in the Bible. Here is a brief description of the astrology and Zodiac astrological signs and symbols for Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Sometime around 2000 AD we left the Age of Pisces and entered the Age of Aquarius. This is a remnant that the ancient astrologers left us when they changed God's beautiful story of the history of life on earth into mythology, and mankind began to worship false gods.

 

The ancient Egyptians called Set (Seth) the father of astronomy. Josephus wrote that Adam's son Seth, and Seth's son Enosh named the constellations and stars.  According to Josephus, Enoch, who was alive when Noah lived before the flood, carved the Zodiac on a pillar, so that after the flood, the people would remember the meaning of the signs that God gave us. If this is true, all the sons of God (Adam's descendants through Seth until Noah) knew the meaning of the stars and constellations.  History confirms this, as every ancient civilization gave the same name (though in different languages), and the same meaning to every constellation and major star. We will be learning later how the names of the major stars in each constellation explain the meaning of the constellation it resides in.

 

Soon after the Great Flood of Noah, astrologers began turning God's message to His people, the signs God put in the sky, into false teachings. Evil men, under the influence of Satan, made gods out of the stars, sun and moon and began worshipping them.  Two hundred years after the flood, the people said, "Come, let us build a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven, and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth (Gen. 11: 1-9)." Was not this tower for worshipping the gods that the astrologers had created out of the stars? Amazingly, to deceive the people, they usually did not even change the names of the constellations and stars. 

 

When the people built the tower of Babel to get closer to the fake gods, God confused the language and scattered the people over all the earth to fight and destroy each other from that time until now. After the Exodus, God said in Deut. 5: 7-9 and Deut. 8: 19-20 that we should not worship the stars, or the next time, He would destroy us. In Deuteronomy 17: 2-7 He tells the Israelites to kill anyone who worships the stars, sun or moon.

 

The heavens declare the glory of God, and earlier versions of Psalm 19: 1 say that the "firmament" shows His handiwork. Genesis 1: 8 tells us that the "firmament" is heaven. Later versions say the "host of heaven," meaning the stars, the work of His hands.  And what majesty it is!

 

The stars are silent. Yet, Psalm 19: 2-4 tells us that they utter speech day unto day, and show knowledge night unto night. There is no speech, yet the message is so clear that all can understand it in any language. We only have to consider the TRUE message that God wrote in the sky from the very beginning, not the FALSE message of the evil astrologers. We will learn how, before the astrologers subverted God's message, the stars were placed in such a way as to give direct revelation from God to His creation.  They prophesied the entire Bible before there was a Bible. They told the life of Jesus, and the life of you and me, from the beginning of time through all eternity. The constellations tell of God's glory and set forth His purposes and counsels.

 

God tells about this in Amos 5: 8 and Job 38: 31-32. He asks Job if Job can bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades (the constellation commonly called The Seven Sisters), or loose the bands of Orion, the great hunter in the sky? He asks, "Can you bring forth Mazzoroth (the Zodiac) in its season? Or can you guide that bright star Arcturus with his sons through the sky?" Is Arcturus also surrounded by planets? Astronomers are just beginning to see evidence that confirms what God told Job 6000 years ago! See http://www.solstation.com/stars2/arcturus.htm. Do you know the laws that God wrote in heaven, and their dominion over the earth? The stars are important to God, or He would not talk about them in such a way. So they should be important to us, too.  We, as believers in God, have totally ignored these things that are so important to God. God made the Zodiac (Mazzoroth), and it is time for those that love God and belong to Him to learn what it really means. We need to take back this rightful heritage that God gave us before the astrologers distorted it. We need to claim it for ourselves.

 

Aldebaran, Pleiades and Orion are also mentioned in Job 9: 9. God named the constellations, and the names have meanings. Constellations are not just random groups of stars that man can imagine to look like figures. God calls them constellations in Isaiah 13: 10. He knows their number and calls them all by name (Ps. 147:4). If God put them in the heavens as signs (Gen. 1: 14), then we should find out what these signs mean. What is the meaning of each word given to each constellation?

 

What decides an age, or the twelve signs of the Zodiac? As the earth orbits around the sun each year, we see the sun travelling an apparent circle so that it passes through twelve different constellations, one each month. This apparent annual path is called the ecliptic. The constellation that the sun is in each month gives the sign of the Zodiac for that month. Psalm 19 tells us that these signs declare the glory of God, and His handiwork. It tells us that we can read the signs in any language.

 

Due to the 23.5 degrees tilt in the earth's axis of rotation, in relation to the sun, the ecliptic goes from north above the equator to south, below the equator. The equator is an imaginary band around the earth, which marks the mid-point of the sun's annual journey around the ecliptic.

 

If we extend the imaginary band of the equator out from the earth to meet the ecliptic, we have two rings touching each other on two sides at a 23.5 degree angle to each other. The sun crosses the equator in late March each year. This is called the spring, or vernal, equinox. Due to the 26,000-year precession of the gyroscopic earth, the constellation Pisces used to be at the vernal equinox. Aquarius is now moving into this position.

 

But this is only half the story. The sun also crosses the equator in the fall. For the past two thousand years, Virgo, the Virgin was at the place where the sun crosses the equator at the fall equinox. We are now moving into an age where Leo the Lion resides at the fall equinox. The fall equinox does not fit the mythology of the astrologers, but it does fit the realization that the heavens declare the glory of God.

 

The vernal equinox tells us that we are leaving the Pisces (meaning fish) period that Jesus told us to be fishers of men (Luke 24: 46 - 49; Acts 1: 6-8), and are entering the period of Aquarius (the water carrier) when the Holy Spirit will be poured out on all people (Joel 2: 28-29). The fall equinox tells us that we are leaving the period when Jesus' mother Mary and the Virgin church of God ceases its birth pangs, delivering sons and daughters of God, bright shining as the sun, without spot or wrinkle (Rev. 12). The fall equinox tells us that we are entering the age of Leo the Lion where Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, rules the earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We are leaving the age of Virgo, the virgin, and entering the age of Leo, the Lion (Rev. 5: 5)

 

Is it any wonder that Jacob called Judah a lion's whelp (Gen. 49: 8-12), a playful lion cub that would grow into the king of the earth? In Matthew 1, we read that Jesus descended from the line of Judah. The constellation Aries, the Lamb is the first sign of spring. Leo, the Lion is the first sign of fall. How often have you heard that spring comes in like a lamb, and goes out like a lion? Jesus came like a lamb, and will soon rule like a lion. The constellations at the Spring and Fall Equinoxes tell us both.

 

Few wonder about the meaning of the Great Sphinx in Egypt. It has a face of a woman with the body of a lion.  But the ancient Egyptians knew its meaning. The word "zodiac" comes from "zodiakos," which means a "circle" in Greek. This comes from the root "zoad," meaning a way, or path, or going by steps. It does not come from the Greek word "zoo," or "zoe," meaning to live. As the earth circles the sun each year, the sun appears to travel through the zodiac, returning to where it began. Where is the beginning of this circle? Astrologers usually begin with Aries, then Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

 

In the Temple of Esna or Isna in Egypt, built in about 2000 BC, between the figures of Virgo, the Virgin and Leo, the Lion, there is carved the figure of the sphinx with the head of a woman and body of a lion. http://www.mazzaroth.com/ChapterOne/TempleOfEsneh.htm. This may be a rendition of ancient knowledge that was carried and preserved on the arc. The zodiac in the Temple of Dendera  shows Leo as the end and Virgo as the beginning of the Zodiac. Its face of a woman looks at Leo, the Lion and the tail of a lion points to Virgo, the Virgin, which is depicted by the Sphinx, near Cairo. Egypt.. 

 

The word "sphinx" comes from the Greek word "sphungo," meaning to bind closely together. The Sphinx binds the beginning of the Zodiac, Virgo, with the end of the Zodiac, Leo the Lion. Jesus said, "Truly, truly I say to you that unless a grain of wheat falls and dies in the ground, it will be left alone; but if it dies, it produces much fruit (Jn. 12: 24)."  The constellation Leo ends the growing season. Then the seeds drop to the ground with the constellation Virgo, where they germinate and produce a new generation.

 

According to the Zodiac of Denderah, we begin with Virgo, the promise of God concerning the seed of the woman in Genesis 3:15. The Zodiac then progresses through the Bible, ending with the triumphant Lion of Judah in Revelations 5:5. Each sign of the Zodiac tells wonderful things about God, His creation, and His plan for the seed of the virgin. Each sign has three decans, or minor constellations which describe the meaning of the major constellation in great detail.

 

Virgo, the Virgin tells us about the seed of the woman bringing forth our Savior. It tells about the virgin church, without spot or wrinkle, bringing forth the children of God. Libra the out-of-balance Scales tells us that all humans are measured and found lacking (Rom. 3: 23). Scorpio, the Scorpion tells about the sting of death that afflicts all people (1 Cor. 15: 55, 56). Sagittarius, the Archer tells about Christ, the Conqueror (Rev. 6: 2). Capricorn, the Goat describes death and resurrection (1 Thessalonians 4: 13 - 16). Aquarius, the Water-carrier pours out the Holy Spirit in the former and latter rain (Isa. 44:3). Pisces, the Fishes shows the body of Christ being multiplied (Mt. 4: 19). Aries is Jesus, the Lamb of God, and describes Christ's sacrifice and Christ on the throne (Rev. 5: 12). Taurus, the Bull is Christ and His body of Saints coming in judgment (2 Tim. 4: 1, 8). Gemini, the Twins describe Christ and the body of Christ reigning through His body (Rev. 20: 6). Cancer, the Crab shows the power of the Kingdom of God (Mk. 16: 17, 18). And finally, Leo the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Jesus, rules supreme and is victor over the serpent, Satan.

 

From the time of Jesus' crucifixion until today, we have been under the sign of Pisces, the fishes. This is the age that Jesus told us to be fishers of men (Luke 24: 46 - 49; Acts 1: 6-8). Now we are entering the Age of Aquarius. Aquarius is the water carrier in the sky.  He carries a huge pot of water on His shoulder. Millions of stars are pouring out of the pot like an infinite river of water pouring onto the earth. Throughout the Bible, water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit (John 4: 14; 7: 38; Rev. 22: 1, 17.)  This is the age when the Holy Spirit is poured out over all the earth (Joel 2: 28-29).

 

You can begin the next time someone asks you what sign you were born under.  The correct answer is, "Which time?" The first time, you were born under Jesus, the Morning star, before the creation of the earth. See Rom. 8: 29; I Cor. 2: 7; and Eph. 1: 4-5, 11.

 

The second time you were born under a sign of the Zodiac, which the astrologers say was in the sky when you were brought into this earth. Except, because of the precession of the earth, the constellation that the astrologers say you were born under no longer corresponds to when you were born. You were really born under a different sign. You will learn later that even this different sign was hidden by the sun when you were born, and another constellation was highly visible in the center of the sky at night.  But you do not live under either sign now, if you are a Christian. 

 

The third time was when you were born again (I Pet. 1: 23; John 3: 3).  Then, you were born under the entire Zodiac beginning with Virgo, the Virgin. Just as Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit through the Virgin Mary, you were born of the Holy Spirit when you were born again. 
 

The fourth time will be under the sign of the morning star, Jesus, when you shine as bright as the sun, and are born without spot or wrinkle to rule as priests over the earth.  See Rev. 5: 9-10; 22: 16; 2: 26-28. 

 

You were predestined to be the praise of His Glory, and He wrote a prophecy of your entire life in the sky.

 

The heavens declare the glory of God, first described in the Bible. All the signs of the Zodiac, the astrology and Zodiac astrological signs and symbols for Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are described in the same way by every ancient civilization, Chaldean, Arabic, Persian, Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Chinese or Indian. The words for each major constellation and each minor constellation mean the same throughout the world, placed in the same order. Whether on ancient clay tablets, hieroglyphics or bone carvings, they have the same meanings. The most ancient Persian and Arabian legends ascribe the Zodiac to Adam, Seth and Enoch.

 

Probably the most import signs that God put in the sky were times of the Four Blood Moons and an eclipse of the sun. This happened during Jesusí crucifixion, other important Jewish experiences and is happening now. I strongly recommend that you read Jonathan Cahnís books, The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah, which tells us that Jesus is returning to the earth very soon and we had better be ready.
