A study on the interpretation of the picturistic symbols in star constellations.

Genesis16 God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day.

Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

PS 19:2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.

PS 19:3 There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.

PS 19:4 Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.


In the Eastern sky at the mid point between the winter to summer solstice begins a series of symbols in the heavens at the vernal equinox – March 21. There is a progression of twelve constellations beginning then
at Virgo which when interpreted traditionally,as the most ancient knowledge passed down from the beginnings of peoples, will give a picture of the Divine contents contained in the Scriptures. The twelve major constellations has three minor constellations each, 48 symbols in total as star signs of God’s Divine revelations.

Isaiah 40:26 Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.

I want to acknowledge the book The Glory of the Stars by E. Raymond Capt as my reference along with the Scriptures. Divine revelations are symbolized in the stars from antiquity and people have watched and passed down this ancient knowledge. Reminds me of the three who seen and followed the star to Christ.
We start the circle of the zodiac and began with Virgo. In the ceiling of the Portico of the Temple of Esnesh in Egypt there is an ancient circular zodiac which has the figure of a sphinx with the head of a woman and the body of a lion placed between the constellations of Virgo and Leo, thus a clue from ancients where to began.

I.VIRGO - is pictured as a woman lying prostrate with a branch in her right hand and some ears of corn in her left hand.
The Egyptians called it Aspolia(the seed) and thought of it Isis and the Greeks as Ceres ignorant of the Divine origin and teaching of this sign.
ISA7:14 "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son". The bright star in the ear of corn is called in Arabic Al Zimach which means the branch ZEC 3:8 " ` I am going to bring my servant, the Branch. 9 See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,' says the LORD Almighty, `and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day. " A star in the branch is called Al Mureddin which means who shall come down, and in Chaldee it is called Vindermiatrix which means branch who cometh.

ISA 11:1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

ISA 4:2 In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious

JER 23:5 "The days are coming," declares the LORD,
"when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch,
a King who will reign wisely
and do what is just and right in the land.

JER 23:6 In his days Judah will be saved
and Israel will live in safety.
This is the name by which he will be called:
The LORD Our Righteousness.

Virgo lies prostrate, helpless to stand upright, holding forth the illustrious Branch, the Seed of whom is the hope for a prostrate and fallen humanity.


1. Coma. Ancient zodiacs picture this as a woman with a child in her arms and called it Comah, meaning the desired or the longed for.
HAG 2::7 " I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty.
The Egyptians called this sign Shesnu, meaning the desired son, calling the child Horus. The Persian name denotes a pure virgin who is on a throne nourishing an infant boy having the name Ihesu (Hebrew), similar to the Greeks name Ieza called Christos. A virgin Woman of wisdom, righteousness and all the good arts
supporting and nourishing the Child.
LK 2:40” And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.”
The earlier zodiac of Denderah, dating back to 2000 B.C. shows the figure of a women and child.
Tradition says it was in this constellation that the Star of Bethlehem appeared. There may have been a Persian Magi among those who searched for the Desire of all nations.
Will another Sign will appear in Comah, the Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven?
MT 24:30 "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”

2. Centaurus. The Despised. A horse with the upper-body of a man, chaging with a spear. Pictorial of two natures, and growing into man-hood. Name in Hebrew is Asmeath, which means sin offering. The brightest star in the horses foot is a double-star named Toliman, and is appearing to grow brighter rapidly.
Note Isaiah 53:3 below*

ISA 52:13 See, my servant will act wisely;
he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

ISA 52:14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him--
his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man
and his form marred beyond human likeness--

ISA 52:15 so will he sprinkle many nations,
and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.

ISA 53:1 Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

ISA 53:2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

ISA 53:3 He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
Like one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

ISA 53:4 Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.

ISA 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

ISA 53:6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

ISA 53:7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.

ISA 53:8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

ISA 53:9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

ISA 53:10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

ISA 53:11 After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.

ISA 53:12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

3. Bootes. A symbol of a strong man walking rapidly with a spear in his right hand and a sickle in his left. Egyptians called this Smat meaning one who rules, subdues and governs. Greeks called this Bootes (ploughman), and Arcturus the watcher, guardian and keeper of Arktos. Arktos is the flock, the sheepfold
in all ancient zodiacs. Bootes is a guardian and keeper of the sheepfold.

JN 10:22 Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon's Colonnade. 24 The Jews gathered around him, saying, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."

JN 10:25 Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. 30 I and the Father are one."

JN 10:31 Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?"

JN 10:33 "We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

JN 10:34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, `I have said you are gods' ? 35 If he called them `gods,' to whom the word of God came--and the Scripture cannot be broken-- 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, `I am God's Son'? 37 Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does. 38 But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father." 39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.


The name of the bright star Arcturus means He cometh. The Hebrew name of this constellation is the coming, the sickle in his hand represents him as a reaper.

REV 14:14 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one "like a son of man" with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, "Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe." 16 So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.

Together with the other signs in Virgo is illustrated the coming of a Savior - born of a virgin,
having two natures, slain for sin, triumphant over death, to return again.




I have always been tremendously interested in astronomy. With the technology of modern telescopes, a universe of other interesting objects, such as galaxies, can be observed. In Virgo, beside the top of The Branch, is an M58 spiral galaxy. In Coma, right above The Branch, is 2 galaxies - M64 spiral and M53 cluster. In Centaurus, above the middle of the horses back is a globular cluster galaxy named Centauri. I got this information from an astronomy book, the science side of the topic: it was said regarding the symbols in the heavens that “some are easy to conclude and others one must stretch the imagination a bit.” Over time some of the original pictures became fragmentary and some other modern symbols were added, the name of the stars contained in a constellation give a clue of the original symbol as well as the archaeological evidence of ancient zodiacs and their structure.

II. Libra. The Scales. All the Eastern and the most ancient zodiacs contain the figure of the Scales or Balances. The down side is invariably slanted toward the deadly Scorpion. This symbol has been blended and separated with Scorpio by Greeks, who viewed the balances of Astraea Goddess of Justice. The Hebrew name is Mozanaim meaning the scales weighing. In Arabic Al Zubena meaning purchase or redemption. In Coptic Lambadia meaning station of propitiation. The 4 bright star names provide us with the full meaning. Zubennn al Genubi means the price deficient. Zuben al Shemali means the price which covers. Al Gubi means heaped up high. Zuben Akrabi means the price of the conflict. The Persian zodiac has a man or woman lifting the scales in one hand and and grasps a lamb in the other, the lamb has a form of an ancient weight. The continuation of the story of the Seed of the woman, promised and appointed to recover fallen man from the Serpent’s power. Recovery requires eternal justice, weighing the demerits and awards of sin on one and the price paid for redemption on the other. Man, weighed in the balance, is found wanting. The price of redemption from sin is too high for mortal man to pay. One of the scales is up which says to universal man DA 5:27 : “You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.” The other side is borne down with the star named “the price that covers”. What the accepted price was to consist of is explained in the minor constellations of this sign, these describe the great work of the Redemption beginning and ending with the Cross.

1. Crux. The Cross. A figure of 4 bright stars in the form of a cross, conspicuous in the darkest section of the southern heavens. It points to the southern celestial pole. Tradition says it was only visible in Jerusalem until Calvary - since then it is invisible at that latitude due to recession of the Polar Star. The Hebrew name is Adom which means cutting off. *Note verse 26 below
DA 9:25 "Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven `sevens,' and sixty-two`sevens.' It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two `sevens,' the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one `seven.' In the middle of the`seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. "
The Egyptians called this Sera which means victory, the symbol of life natural and eternal perfect and complete, they decorated cakes with the symbol and ate as a form of worship life and salvation through the Cross In the ancient zodiac of Denderah Crux is represented as a lion with his head turned backward and his tongue out as if in thirst. Christ is Lion of the Tribe of Judah, as He died on the Cross Christ expressed His consuming thirst. A Savior who suffered on it, conquer by it, and give eternal life through it. The symbol of the cross was sacred to many ancient descendants, Christianity did not have its origins in the paganism of ancient religions, but is the fulfillment of the most ancient of Celestial Prophecies. Crux stands among the symbols of ancient astronomy as it stands in Christianity, a token of the price at which our redemption was to be bought.

2. Lupus. The Victim. Here we find the figure of an animal as slain by the spear of the charging Centaur, it is in the act of falling down dead. The ancient Egyptian zodiac of Denderah pictures this as a little child with its fingers on its lips. The Egyptians refered to him as Horus and also called him Sura meaning a lamb.
Men nailed Christ to the cross but it was He who gave Himself into their hands to do it. This is seen in the pictorial portrait of the victim slain by a spear, barbed in the form of the cross, coming from His own hand, symbolized by the Centaur. The important element in the mystical transaction on the cross is that He sacrificed Himself.

JN 10:14 "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me-- 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father--and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life--only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father."

Just as Lupus and Crux are the southernmost constellations, Christ’s death by the Cross marks the limit and farthest boundaries of the humiliation for human redemption. The gates of Hell stood confounded before His majesty, and the doors of the grave gave way. We see in Lupus a celestial portrait of the scriptural message He who knew no sin consented to become an offering for sin, an indication of the nature and payment of the price of redemption.

3. Corona Borealis. The Crown. The stars in this constellation are white and twinkling, symbolizing the Crown is fully jeweled. A jewel box in the southern milkyway near the southern cross. The Araabic name of this sign is Al Iclil meaning jewel. The Hebrew is Atarah meaning royal crown.
*Note passage 28:5
ISA 27:12 In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up one by one. 13 And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the LORD on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.
ISA 28:1 Woe to that wreath, the pride of Ephraim's drunkards,
to the fading flower, his glorious beauty,
set on the head of a fertile valley--
to that city, the pride of those laid low by wine!
ISA 28:2 See, the Lord has one who is powerful and strong.
Like a hailstorm and a destructive wind,
like a driving rain and a flooding downpour,
he will throw it forcefully to the ground.
ISA 28:3 That wreath, the pride of Ephraim's drunkards,
will be trampled underfoot.
ISA 28:4 That fading flower, his glorious beauty,
set on the head of a fertile valley,
will be like a fig ripe before harvest--
as soon as someone sees it and takes it in his hand,
he swallows it.
ISA 28:5 In that day the LORD Almighty
will be a glorious crown,
a beautiful wreath
for the remnant of his people.
ISA 28:6 He will be a spirit of justice
to him who sits in judgment,
a source of strength
to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
ISA 28:7 And these also stagger from wine
and reel from beer:
Priests and prophets stagger from beer
and are befuddled with wine;
they reel from beer,
they stagger when seeing visions,
they stumble when rendering decisions.
ISA 28:8 All the tables are covered with vomit
and there is not a spot without filth.
ISA 28:9 "Who is it he is trying to teach?
To whom is he explaining his message?
To children weaned from their milk,
to those just taken from the breast?
ISA 28:10 For it is:
Do and do, do and do,
rule on rule, rule on rule;
a little here, a little there."
ISA 28:11 Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues
God will speak to this people,
ISA 28:12 to whom he said,
"This is the resting place, let the weary rest";
and, "This is the place of repose"--
but they would not listen.
ISA 28:13 So then, the word of the LORD to them will become:
Do and do, do and do,
rule on rule, rule on rule;
a little here, a little there--
so that they will go and fall backward,
be injured and snared and captured.
ISA 28:14 Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers
who rule this people in Jerusalem.
ISA 28:15 You boast, "We have entered into a covenant with death,
with the grave we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
and falsehood our hiding place."
ISA 28:16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
"See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
ISA 28:17 I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
and water will overflow your hiding place.
ISA 28:18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;
your agreement with the grave will not stand.
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
you will be beaten down by it.
ISA 28:19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
morning after morning, by day and by night,
it will sweep through."
The understanding of this message
will bring sheer terror.
ISA 28:20 The bed is too short to stretch out on,
the blanket too narrow to wrap around you.
ISA 28:21 The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim,
he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon--
to do his work, his strange work,
and perform his task, his alien task.
ISA 28:22 Now stop your mocking,
or your chains will become heavier;
the Lord, the LORD Almighty, has told me
of the destruction decreed against the whole land.
ISA 28:23 Listen and hear my voice;
pay attention and hear what I say.
ISA 28:24 When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually?
Does he keep on breaking up and harrowing the soil?
ISA 28:25 When he has leveled the surface,
does he not sow caraway and scatter cummin?
Does he not plant wheat in its place,
barley in its plot,
and spelt in its field?
ISA 28:26 His God instructs him
and teaches him the right way.
ISA 28:27 Caraway is not threshed with a sledge,
nor is a cartwheel rolled over cummin;
caraway is beaten out with a rod,
and cummin with a stick.
ISA 28:28 Grain must be ground to make bread;
so one does not go on threshing it forever.
Though he drives the wheels of his threshing cart over it,
his horses do not grind it.
ISA 28:29 All this also comes from the LORD Almighty,
wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom.
ISA 29:1 Woe to you, Ariel, Ariel,
the city where David settled!
Add year to year
and let your cycle of festivals go on.
ISA 29:2 Yet I will besiege Ariel;
she will mourn and lament,
she will be to me like an altar hearth.
ISA 29:3 I will encamp against you all around;
I will encircle you with towers
and set up my siege works against you.
ISA 29:4 Brought low, you will speak from the ground;
your speech will mumble out of the dust.
Your voice will come ghostlike from the earth;
out of the dust your speech will whisper.
ISA 29:5 But your many enemies will become like fine dust,
the ruthless hordes like blown chaff.
Suddenly, in an instant,
ISA 29:6 the LORD Almighty will come
with thunder and earthquake and great noise,
with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.
ISA 29:7 Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel,
that attack her and her fortress and besiege her,
will be as it is with a dream,
with a vision in the night--
ISA 29:8 as when a hungry man dreams that he is eating,
but he awakens, and his hunger remains;
as when a thirsty man dreams that he is drinking,
but he awakens faint, with his thirst unquenched.
So will it be with the hordes of all the nations
that fight against Mount Zion.
ISA 29:9 Be stunned and amazed,
blind yourselves and be sightless;
be drunk, but not from wine,
stagger, but not from beer.
ISA 29:10 The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep:
He has sealed your eyes (the prophets);
he has covered your heads (the seers).
ISA 29:11 For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say to him, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I can't; it is sealed." 12 Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I don't know how to read."

After the passage above, I felt I needed to include the whole “scroll”, but I can not read, tell where it began so I went to where I did? Part of these words is a mention of a Crown. The LORD of Hosts be for a Crown{Atarah} of Glory, Diadem of Beauty. Here we see the Crown of the people of God is the LORD Himself, the Diadem of His elect.

III. Scorpio. The Scorpion. In this constellation we have the figure of a mammoth scorpion, with its tail uplifted in anger. It appears to be trying to strike the man (Ophiuchus) who is struggling with the serpent. The man in turn is crushing the scorpion with his foot placed over the heart. In the zodiac of Denderah, Scorpio is represented by a monster serpent with one hundred heads called Typhon. The brightest star, in the heart of the figure, is one of the reddest stars visible and bears the ancient Arabic name of Antares which means the wounding and is also known as the Scorpion’s Heart. This figure speaks of a most malignant conflict between the Serpent and the woman’s Seed. The attempt to destroy all the males of the seed of Abraham (Exodus Chapt1), the efforts of Athaliah to destroy all the royal seed (2Kings11:1), Herod’s slaying of all the male babes in Bethlehem. The conflict develops into the real wounding at the Cross when the Scorpion struck the woman’s Seed. To clearly indicate that this conflict only apparently ended in defeat on the Cross, we have the first 2 minor constellations belonging to this sign presented as one picture and including the sign itself. Being thus joined, the scorpion, the serpent and the man, shows the ultimate triumphant of the serpent’s opponent. Therefore we must consider the first two minor constellations together next.

1. Serpens. The Serpent.
2. Ophiuchus. The Serpent Holder.
The figure of a mighty man (Ophiuchus) wrestling with a giganic serpent (Serpens) whose head is trying to reach a crown {Corona}. The man is grasping the serpent with both hands disabling the monster by his superior power and effectively holding him fast so that he cannot get to the crown{Corona} With one foot lifted from the scorpions tail as stung and hurt, he is in the process of crushing the scorpions head with the other. A figure of the wrestling and agony which the Seed of the Virgin experienced in the hour of the powers of darkness the great Scorpion striking the Son of God, every pore issued blood. The Hebrew and Arabic name is Afeichus meaning the serpent held. The brightest star in the mans head is called Ras Alhegue meaning the head of him who holds. The star Saiph in the mans foot means bruised. The Coming one overcomes the Serpent and is the great Healer, the Resurrection and Life Everlasting. The doctrine of a Savior necessarily implies the doctrine of a Destroyer, a dark and subtle intelligence operating within a person, as Christ came into the world the Scorpion sought to to deceive and destroy Him. The Serpens is looking up to seize the Crown {Corona Borealis}. The man Ophiuchus representing Jesus Christ, is holding fast the Serpens preventing him from taking the Celestial Crown {Corona Borealis}

3. Hercules. The Mighty Man. A symbol of a mighty man down on one knee with his heel uplifted as if wounded wearing the skin of a lion he has slain holding a great club in the right hand and a three headed creature in the left, His left foot is set directly on the head of the great Dragon (Draco).

REV 12:13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach. 15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

The zodiac of Denderah has a humane figure with a club named Bau which means who cometh. Hercules is the Roman name and Herakles is the Greek, however the Phoenicians 200 years before the Greeks represented Him as a savior. The Chaldee has legends from 4000 years ago. Hercules is not a Greek invention, it dates back to Egypt, Phoenica and India to a time long anterior to the Greeks. To replace what had been lost of ancient wisdom much was added after the mythical style, in spite of the ancient perversions which have woven fables and gods around the ancient names and their meanings we can still see foretold the mighty works which the Seed of the Woman, Jesus Christ, would perform. The brightest star in his head is named Ras al Gethi meaning the Head of him who bruises. The next in the right arm pit is Kornephorus meaning the Branch, kneeling. The original star picture is a prophetic representation of Him who shall destroy the Serpent and open way not to fabled apples of gold but to the tree of life itself.

IV. Sagittarius. The Archer. We again have the figure of a Centaur indicating the double nature of the Seed of the Virgin. A figure of a mighty warrior riding forth majestically with a bow and arrow aimed at the heart of the Scorpion. The Archer is at war with the Scorpion and all the evil creatures associated with it, and his going forth is for their destruction.


REV 6:2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.

The Hebrew name of this constellation is Kesith meaning the archer. In Arabic it is called Al Kuas meaning the arrow. In ancient Akkadian the name of this picture is Nun-Ki meaning Prince of the earth. The zodiac of Denderah has under this constellation in hieroglyphics the word Knem which means He conquers. According to Greek myth this was Cheiron, a great teacher of mankind, a king blessed by God whose name every generation shall remember and whom the people shall praise for ever and ever. The Greeks recognized the attributes of this sign and its star names, the two brightest are Naim meaning gracious one and Nehushla meaning the going or sending forth, but the original story had been lost by their time. The Hindoos also recognized the nature and meaning of this constellation, in sacred Indian books there is a tenth avatar predicted when Vishnu is to come as a man on a white horse overthrowing his enemies and rooting out all evil from the earth. The same story as told in Revelation when the King of Kings and Lord of Lords comes forth to do battle.

1. Lyra. The Harp. A symbol of an eagle holding a harp. The eagle is the enemy of the serpent and darts forth from the heavenly heights with great suddenness and power. Lyra contains one of the most superb of all the first magnitude stars. Its name is Vega, which means He shall be exulted. The brightness of this star is one hundred times that of our sun. About fourteen thousand years ago Vega was the north Polar Star, and, in consequence of the precession of the equinoxes, it will occupy the same position about eleven thousand years hence. Two others conspicuous stars in this constellation are Shelyuk meaning an eagle and Sulaphat meaning springing up or ascending - as in praise. The harp is the oldest of stringed instruments known during the time of Adam -

GE 4:19 Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock. 21 His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play the harp and flute.

The placing of the harp following Sagittarius connects pre-eminent gladness, joy, delight, and praise with the actions of this great Archer.

REV 5:13
"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!"

2. Ara. The Altar. A symbol of an altar, covered with burning fire. The fire is burning downward, significantly, toward the lower regions of outer darkness called Tartarus, the area toward the covered and invisible south pole. The zodiac of Denderah has the same basic idea but has the symbol of a throned human figure wielding a flail over a jackal, the cunning animal of darkness. The jackal, often identified with the dragon, is being brought under dominion and judgement. The throned figure has a name Bau which signifies the coming one, the same as in Scorpio. We can see depicted in this constellation a coming judgement, symbolizing the burning pyre and the coming one, enthroned with the threshing instrument.

3. Draco. The Dragon. This constellation is the figure of a great serpent wound about half of the northern sky, the tail alone extends over a “third part of the stars”. The name means trodden on, it is pictured under the forefoot of Sagattarius and is named Her-fent meaning the serpent accursed in the zodiac of Denderah.

PS 91:13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

ISA 27:1 In that day,
the LORD will punish with his sword,
his fierce, great and powerful sword,
Leviathan the gliding serpent,
Leviathan the coiling serpent;
he will slay the monster of the sea.


The prominent star in the latter coils is named in Hebrew Thuban meaning the subtle, it was the north Polar Star 4600 years ago and is much closer presently to the true pole than Polaris. The downward sloping passage in the Great Pyramid of Giza points to the place where it occupied in the sky when it was the pole star and could be seen by day at the bottom of the passage deep beneath the foundation of that mighty pile of stone. A bright star in the head of the figure is named Ethanin meaning the long serpent or dragon. Another one named Rastaban meaning the head of the subtle. Two other stars are Giansar meaning the punished enemy and El Athik meaning the fraudful. The Dragon and the Serpent are one and the same but manifested in different ways, the Devil and the Deceiver destroying by insinuating poison. There is nothing in zoology to explain or account for such a creature yet this image has figured conspicuously in man’s art and literature throughout ages as being vanquished by the works of gods, heroes and saints. Mythology says the Dragon guarded the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides from man and Hercules slain this Dragon. The ancient celestial signs portray this old serpent who deceived and thus kept mortals from the fruits of the tree of life as being crushed by the promised Seed of the woman, the coming one who is pictured with his foot on the head of the Dragon.

V. Capricornus. The Sea Goat. Capricornus is the Latin name and means goat or atonement, a symbol of a goat with the tail of a fish. In all the ancient zodiacs the tail is full of vigor and life. Two star names are Al Gedi meaning the goat and Deneb Al Gedi the sacrifice cometh. A prophecy of the promised deliverance.

ISA 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

The living fish proceeding from the dying goat pictures a mystic procreation and a brining forth. That which is brought forth is a fish, an understood symbol of Jesus Christ, Son of God, Our Savior = the initial in Greek form a name which signifies a fish. In spite of much paganized and corrupted paraphrasing, the original primeval conception shines through: of Christ, Redeemer and Savior dying in the Goat but producing a fish, a great multitude of redeemed that shall obtain eternal life through the death of their Redeemer.

GAL 4:1 What I am saying is that as long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate. 2 He is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. 3 So also, when we were children, we were in slavery under the basic principles of the world. 4 But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, 5 to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. 6 Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father." 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.

PHP 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.


1.Sagitta. The arrow. Here is pictured an arrow, having left the bow being in flight. It is a Heavenly arrow and He who shoots it is invisible. The Hebrew name is Sham meaning destroying or desolate. Alone it projects little meaning, but placed in the context of the Goat and its associated signs, it is the arrow of Divine justice which goes forth against all unrighteousness and sin. There are many other stars in the heavens in a straighter line which would better serve for an arrow, however, this constellation was known to the Arabians, Armenians, Persians, and the ancient Hebrews as the Arrow and the come down to us through the ages - the Latin equivalent being Sagitta. On a few early star- maps an Eagle was pictured with an arrow in his talons which accounts for the modern picture of an eagle holding one or more arrows in his claws. Unlike the arrow of Sagittarius, which is reserved for the enemies of God, this arrow symbolizes the Word of God: the arrow of conviction for sin. The execution it does is shown in the dying goat, signifying the slaying of sin in the soul, so one might live again, signified as the vigorous fish tail, in Christ.

2. Aquilla. The Eagle. Another figure whose message is difficult to understand when taken alone: a pierced, wounded and falling eagle. Its principal star is Al Tair, with the Arabic meaning the wounded. A second star with the name of Al Shain means the scarlet-colored-covered with blood. Two other star names are Tarared meaning the torn and Al Okal meaning wounded in the heel. There is no satisfactory explanation
of the meaning of these star names except to elaborate on the same ideas which we find symbolized in Capricornus. The Eagle is a royal bird and the natural enemy of the serpent as well as a Biblical symbol of Christ.
DT 32:10 In a desert land he found him,
in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him;
he guarded him as the apple of his eye,

DT 32:11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest
and hovers over its young,
that spreads its wings to catch them
and carries them on its pinions.

DT 32:12 The LORD alone led him;
no foreign god was with him.


LK 24:36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."

LK 24:37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38 He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have."

LK 24:40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, "Do you have anything here to eat?" 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in their presence.

LK 24:44 He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."

LK 24:45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things.

REV 5:9 And they sang a new song:

"You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased men for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation.

In this sign the noble Eagle, the promised Seed of the woman is shown pierced, torn and bleeding, that those in His image may be saved from death, protected and made to live forever.

3.Delphinus. The Dolphin. The figure of a vigorous fish leaping upward, in contrast to the eagle with its head downward.The Persians portrayed a fish and a stream of water, while the Egyptians had a vessel pouring out water. The Hebrew name is Dalaph meaning pouring out of water, but translates into Arabic as coming quickly. Its Arabic name is Scalooin meaning swift(as the flow of water), and the Chaldean name is Rotaneu meaning swiftly running. In ancient mythology we find the dolphin was the most sacred of fishes, no doubt because of this astral significance ascribed to it. The portrayal of the Dolphin with its peculiar characteristics of rising up or leaping and springing out of the sea is allegorical of Jesus Christ, rising up from the grave. Having gone down into the waters of death on account of the sins of His people, He was raised again to justify us before God.

RO 4:25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

I totally believe that the message of salvation was written in the stars. When God told Abraham to "count" the stars, the Hebrew word can also mean that God told Abraham to "read" the stars. (see Genesis 15:5) Abraham dicovered the message of redemption and that his offspring Jesus Christ, born of the virgin, would bring salvation. Abraham was saved through faith in what he saw - the coming savior - not because he could count stars. (Genesis 15:6)

However, we do not need the stars today because we have something even better - the Word of God, the Holy Bible.

[Also, this does not in anyway condone astrology. By the way, astrology charts are thousands of years out of date. Every 2 thousand years we enter into a new astronomical epoch and astrology has not kept up for millenia.]

The heavens truly declare the glory of God. Compare Psalm 19:1-4 with Romans 10:18!!!

I have heard about this years back , and as you are ,I was awstruck . All creation was created by , and is a testimony of the FATHER who made it . Creation , was created part of the what GOD said was good . But creation worships GOD , and waits for all the sons and daughters of GOD , to be redeemed ! When we start to worship the creation , instead of the creator , we open ourselves to spirits of divination , and all kinds of witchcraft , and idolatry . I am not saying that this is what you're motives are in you're post . As I said , when I found out about the hidden mysteries of the stars , I also was amazed by it . I am just trying to share a warning to everyone here at talkjesus , about where this fascination could lead you . BROTHER

While I found it all very interesting I do also agree with Brother and jiggfly. I have a question though ( I know evangeline touched on it a bit) what about astrology is that not right to read your horoscope? Can not one say well God talked through the stars before why can He not guide us today with horocope? Please understand I am just asking because all this information that you posted Z I have never knew! Ty God Bless

Galatians 5:24,25
24*Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. 25*If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us follow the Holy Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.
I think we should be led By the Spirit of God and hear from Him about our future and not trust someone's interpitation of what the stars are telling them.

Evangeline,
Thanks! Asktrology seeks to predict influences on events by positioning of stars and planets. I am not attempting to condone asktrology nor am I an asktrologer, I present the ancient truths behind the symbols and star names.
 
Member
Jiggyfly,
Thanks! Your concern is much appreciated, it seems false concepts concerning this is at every turn. I must change my start page of my ISP to even remove the horrorscope!
 
Member
Jesuslovesu,
Thanks! God did set forth an ancient message in symbols - but this is unchanging and in form similar to an alphabet, for example hieroglyphics. The horrorscopes and asktrology are in my opinion false concepts seeking us to put our trust in their influences, loosing sight of God and of the Divine alphabet.

The water Bearer

VI. Aquarius. The water Bearer. A figure of a man holding a great urn in his left hand, from which is pouring out an inexhaustible stream of water. The water is flowing downwards into the mouth of a great fish which receives it and swallows it all. The star in the right shoulder is Sa ad al Melik meaning record of the outpouring. The star in the other shoulder is known as Saad al Sund which means the pourer out. A third star in the left leg is called in Hebrew Scheat meaning who goeth and returneth . Following after the constellations portraying atonement, Aquarius pictures the blessings which follow: the inexhaustible reservoir of water symbolizes the fullness of the renewing, comforting and sanctifying power of His Holy Spirit.

The heavens declare the glory of God
The skies proclaim the work of His Hands
Day to day pours forth speech
Night after night they display knowledge
There is no speech or language where there voice is not heard
THEIR VOICE GOES OUT INTO ALL THE EARTH
THEIR WORDS TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD
Psalm 19:1-4

How then can they call on the One they have not believed?
And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
...Did they not hear? Of course they did.
THEIR VOICE HAS GONE OUT INTO ALL THE EARTH
THEIR WORDS TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD
Romans 10:14-18

As I said before, God made His plan of redemption clear to anyone who would look up, especially the ancient and primitive man. So that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:20) Abraham understood the message in the stars. However the Word of God completely surpasses the message of the stars.

I like our brother's wise warning about worshipping the creation rather than the creator. (Romans 1:25)

Also, it is very much a device of the Devil to take something Godly and good, and warp it into something evil that takes our trust and faith away from God. Astrology and Horoscopes are evil.

I disagree that the Word of God completely surpasses the message of the stars - it is the same teachings but another language.
Asktrology and horrorscopes seek to remove God from the Equation, but God has a message in the zodiac when we read it as an ancient alphabet.
Thanks for your opinions on Abraham!
My opinion is the stars mentioned are an allegory to many. He believed God could cause his barren wife to have a child although they had tried their whole life and now were old without any and the desendants would be as very many as the stars are many - he believed God could do what seemed impossible.

The Southern Fish

1.Picus Australis. The Southern Fish. The Great fish that receives the flow of water from the Water Bearer. The imagery of this constellation and of the Scripture record sets forth the same truths. The redeemed represented by the mystic fish, receive the eternal blessedness, symbolized by the waters proceeding out.

PS 36:9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.

The Winged Horse

2. Pegasus. The Winged Horse. The figure of a great horse galloping foreword with full speed, with great wings spreading from his shoulders. In the zodiac of Denderah we find the two characters “pe” and “ka” under this constellation, when combined with “sus” meaning horse it produces pekasus. The star at the beginning of the neck is named Markab meaning returning from afar. The star at the tip of the wing is named Algeneb meaning who carries. Symbolic of the return of Christ, who shall Algeneb (carry, take)
us .

JN 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

The Swan

3. Cygnus. The Swan. The principal stars forming its wings and length of body form the most perfect of all crosses formed by the constellations. The name given this is Tes-ark meaning this from afar. Its brightest star is Deneb, meaning the Lord or Judge to come. Others are Sadr meaning who returns as in a circle, Azel meaning who goes and returns quickly, Fafage meaning gloriously shining forth. Symbol of a risen and glorified Redeemer, sending forth the river of living waters.

JN 7:37 Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

The Seed of the woman gave His life for our atonement, took back life and assures us He will return to bring us waters of everlasting life.
