12 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 twelve stars; 2 and she was with child; and she *cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.
Revelation 12 relates a sign that will appear in the heavens. Significantly, it is a sign that is associated with the Geulah, Redemption! It is a sign that has only happened once in the history of the world, September 11, 3 BC and it will happen only again once in the foreseeable future/next couple thousand years. The picture below is from free astronomy software, Stellarium, seen from Jerusalem at sunset on September 23, 2017. Interestingly, this is on Yom Teruah, the Day of Trumpets. Take a look at the picture below and tell me what you see….
The nine stars of Leo are joined by three planets to form a 12 star crown over the sun clothed Betulah, or Virgo. In her womb is Jupiter, or Tzedek, and at her feet is the moon, just a the visible crescent. (Incidentally, Tzedek is now in the womb of Betulah. I need to go back and see how recently this happened… was it during Hanukkah??)
Folks, this is VERY, VERY significant and interesting!! Those watching for the Mashiach will be paying attention. All of the hoopla of recent days and months is not insignificant. It is the build up to the events about to unfold.
For your own observation, download Stellarium at the above link. I would also recommend a cool phone app called Google Sky for keeping an eye on the heavens. For more information on this particular constellation formation and the one mentioned in Rev. 12:3-4, I recommend reading Dr. Dale Sides’ post here. And, a good in depth look at the Mazzaroth in Scriptural as well as in depth Judaic sources, I recommend this excellent detailed article.
