Chapter 9

How to Read The Heavenly Scroll



Revelation 6:14

13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The heavens were split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up!


Isaiah 34:4

All the stars in the heavens will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree.


Where did the images come from?

Have you ever noticed how the pictures associated with each constellation have nothing to do with how the stars that supposedly make up that constellation appear when connected together? How did our ancient ancestor, across all cultures and over thousands of years, come up with the same images to represent the same 12 constellations and 36 Decans (smaller constellations)?

The images associated with each constellation do not represent the physical “connect the dots” representation of the stars that make up each constellation. The images represent the “meaning” or story told by the constellation. The story told by each constellation is derived from the meaning of the names of the stars the constellation contain! The meaning of the major 12 constellations also factor in the meaning of the associated Decans around each constellation. The Signs are pictographs, pictures that tell a story.

We know from scripture that it was Yahuah who named each star, grouped them into constellations, and brought each constellation forth by name. We see below that it was Yahuah who named every star! 

Psalms 147:1-5

How good it is to sing praises to our Elohim, how pleasant and fitting to praise him! Yahuah builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Elohim and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.

We see below, that it was Yahuah who created and named the “starry hosts” which are the constellations (groups that “host” stars):

Isaiah 40:25-26

“To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host (constellations) one by one, and calls them each (constellation) by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing (there are 12 major constellations exactly among all cultures).

Because Yahuah named each star and the constellation that hosts the stars, every culture has exactly 12 major constellations along the path of the sun (ecliptic). Every culture has the same names (in their own language) for the constellations and the stars in them. In every culture the names of the stars/constellation mean the same thing.  To determine the image of a constellation, every culture simply looked at the meaning behind the names of the stars in that constellation. The stars are “read” in the order of their brightness in the sky.

Then based on the “story” told when looking into the meaning of the stars, they would understand the story of the constellation itself. Then they would create an “image” for the constellation base on the story it told, not by “connecting the dots” i.e. by the shape of the stars in the constellation. So the “images” are pictographs. Pictographs on a ‘scroll’ that visually tell the story of salvation.




That is why the images of each Zodiac Sign (constellation) looks (in some cases) nothing like you would get if you drew a line connecting all the stars! Some actually do resemble the image, but others are a real stretch because the image is not really based on the shape but the story.


Constructing the images of the Signs of The Zodiac

This is what the grouping of stars in each constellation looks like to the naked eye:



This is what you get “connecting the dots”:



If you look really hard you can almost “see” the resulting characters associated with them. But it is a stretch and definitely doesn’t account for why every culture has the exact same images and stories.  This is a sample of the images/characters drawn to represent the story told:




Within each “sign” or constellation, there are 3 nearby constellations called Decans; for a total of 36 minor constellations. These minor constellations, like the major ones, derive their image the same way; from the names of the stars within them. Each major constellation’s story also includes the story told by the associated 3 Decans nearby them. The Decans are not on the ecliptic (the Sun does not go through them) that is the difference between the 12 major signs and the minor signs. Below is a chart showing the 12 major signs color coded and the associated Decans (minor constellations) that factor into the overall story told by each major constellation.


Decans RWS.png

On the following pages, I will breakdown each major sign in the Zodiac. I will explain each major star and the associated Decans to show why every culture dating back to the origin of man has come up with the same images and stories.





Short Story: The Virgin / Young Maiden

Virgin gives birth to a King, great shepherd and harvester

Tribe of Israel: Naphtali

Primary star

Spica – means “ear of wheat/corn/grain”. Hebrew word for this star is Tsemech which means “the branch”. Jer 23:5-6, Zech 3:8, 6:12, Isaiah 4:2. There are 20 different Hebrew words that mean “branch”, yet only Tsemech is used of the Messiah; the same word for the name of the brightest star of Virgo. Virgo has a branch/ear of barely in one hand (John 12:21-24) and a “seed” in her other (Gen 3:15)

Secondary star

Zavijaveh, meaning “gloriously beautiful.” - Isaiah 4:2

Decans (secondary constellations)

Coma decan – meaning “the infant is the desired one” (Haggai 2:7). The image of this constellation is a woman holding an infant child. As the Egyptians were led astray into worshipping the “creation over the creator” they idolized the image of Coma and myths were created around this Decan of the Madonna and Child. This is where the worship of Semaramis and Tammuz (Babylon), Isis/Horus (Egypt), and many other pagan myths are derived.

Centaurus decan – meaning “the dart piercing a victim”
Bootes decan – meaning “the great shepherd and harvester”

Overall story told by VIRGO

Seed of the Woman, Desire of nations, Man of humiliation, becomes exalted Shepherd and Harvester. A virgin holding a branch and an ear of corn. Corn = seed (Latin Spica, the modern name of this bright star. Old name was Arabic Al Zimach  meaning seed). Star Zavijaveh means "gloriously beautiful". So according to all cultures since the beginning of mankind, the constellation Virgo means “a virgin holding a branch and a seed that will be gloriously beautiful”. Let’s look at what the prophets of Yahuah spoke concerning the Messiah Yahusha and see if the meaning of Virgo is truly a prophetic sign of the coming messiah Yahusha:


Isaiah 7

14 Therefore Yahuah himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son


Jeremiah 23

5 “The days are coming,” declares Yahuah, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, ... This is the name by which he will be called:  Yahuah Our Righteous Savior.

Note:  Jeremiah named the name of the Messiah specifically here. “Yahusha” in Hebrew is how you say: “Yahuah Our Righteous Savior”. It is said Yahuah Yasha but Hebrew tradition was to shorten an expression into a personal name with meaning. The short poetic form of Yahuah “Yah” and the short poetic form of the salvation “sha”. The Hebrew name of the Messiah fulfills this prophecy perfectly; his name was Yahusha not “Jesus”. Yahusha is short for Yahuah Yasha which means “Yahuah Our Righteous Savior” or Yahuah is our savior. I will cover the name of The Messiah in detail in this book series.

Isaiah 4

2 In that day the Branch (who is Yahusha) of Yahuah will be beautiful and glorious

So, the prophets of Yahuah proclaimed a virgin will give birth to a beautiful glorious and righteous branch, the seed of Abraham. Perfect match.





Short Story: The Scales

The scales demand a price to be paid, Cross to endure, the Victim slain, a Crown purchased.

Tribe of Israel: Asher

Primary star

Alpha: Zuben al Genubi – means price deficient (Ps 49:7, 62:9

Secondary star

Beta: Zuben al Chemali – means price that covers (Rev 5:6). So “we fall short, another covers the gap)

Third star

Gamma: Zuben al Akrab – price of the conflict as it points toward Centaurus  and victim slain

Decans (secondary constellations)


The Cross - Hebrew is Adom means “cut off”


Lupus – the victim, pierced to death, Hebrew Asedah “to be slain”. Egyptian name is Sura which means “lamb” (Isa 53:7)



Corona – the crown (Heb 2:9). Hebrew word Atarah means “royal crown” (Rev 5:9, Mt 27:29, Jas 1:12, Zech 9:16).


To the south of Libra, we find the cosmic struggle of Serpens and Ophiuchus a man wrestling with serpent while treading on the head of a scorpion and the other foot is on the scorpions head.

Overall story told by Libra

The Balance, or Scales, symbolizes measurement and balance in general as well as justice and commerce. Speaking of the Messiah:

Job 31

6 let Yahuah weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless


Revelation 6

5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.

An accurate balance with accurate weights was a symbol of justice. Yahuah has perfect Justice based upon His absolute Righteousness. The scales of divine Justice are accurately calibrated. Divine Judgment is without partiality (Deut 10:17; Acts 10:34; Rom 2:11; Gal 2:6; Eph 6:9). Yahuah (His proxy King Yahusha) is the final Judge (2 Tim 4:1; Heb 4:12; 10:30; 12:23; Jas 4:12).




Short Story

A Conflict, Serpent's coils, Struggle with the Enemy, the Evil Vanquisher. The "strong man" wrestles with the serpent who is reaching for the crown. The scorpion is stinging the heel of the strong man, who is treading on the scorpion.

Tribe of Israel: Dan

Primary star

Antares - wounding, cutting, tearing

Secondary star

Beta: Zuben al Chemali – means price that covers (Rev 5:6). So “we fall short, another covers the gap)

Third star

Gamma: Zuben al Akrab – price of the conflict as it points toward Centaurus  and victim slain

Decans (secondary constellations)


Serpens and Ophiuchus decans – the serpent and the Serpent Bearer, or Healer. A man wrestling with the serpent. He has one foot on the scorpions head and the other on the scorpion’s tail.


Genesis 3:15 - I will put enmity between you (the serpent) and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall crush your head, And you shall crush his heel.

Hercules decan – the mighty man. This Decan is the foundation of myths and idols of the Greeks.


Overall story told by Scorpio

Scorpius, the Scorpion, symbolizes Satan, the enemy of Yahuah and His chosen family. Satan was the enemy of the Messiah in Hypostatic Union, who inspired the execution on the stake (Jn 13:2, 27), but was defeated at the stake through resurrection (Jn 3:14-15, 12:31-32, 16:11). The scorpion (Dt 8:15; Ezek 2:6; Lk 10:19; 11:12) is a desert creature, as is the snake, which also symbolizes Satan.

Snakes and scorpions, the symbols of Satan, were the enemies of Israel. "Fiery serpents" is the Hebrew nachash, serpent, and saraph, meaning burning, fiery, or serpent. The two words together mean literally burning snakes, which were so called for their inflammatory bite, filled with heat and poison.

The constellation, Scorpius, is near other snake symbols. It is near the constellation Serpens, the Serpent, and Ophiuchus, the Snake Holder. Since both snakes and scorpions are symbols of Satan, the sign of Scorpius applies to both. Therefore, scripture for snakes as well as scorpions apply in the study of Scorpius.

The scorpion is also a symbol of the Centaur demon assault army of Abaddon (Rev 9:3, 5, 10), which, of course, is from Satan. Scorpius symbolizes the enemy attack of Satan, but it also symbolizes the victory at the stake (Yahusha was nailed to a stake or tree not a cross). The Greek word for serpent is o[fi" (ophis), which is also used in the Septuagint for the serpent in the Garden (Gen 3:1), the fiery serpents (Deut. 8:15), and the brass serpent in the desert (Num 21:6-9).




Short Story: The Archer

The double-natured One triumphs as a Warrior, Pleases the Heavens, Builds fires of punishment, Casts down the Dragon. Same meaning in several languages (Rev. 6:2). Star Naim = The gracious one.

Tribe of Israel: Benjamin

Primary star

El Asieh – “the one to whom we bow” (Isaiah 45:23)

Secondary star

Beta: Zuben al Chemali – means price that covers (Rev 5:6). So “we fall short, another covers the gap)

Third star

Gamma: Zuben al Akrab – price of the conflict as it points toward Centaurus  and victim slain


Decans (secondary constellations)


Lyra - The harp. The name indicates the praise of Yahuah. Brightest star is Vega = He shall be exalted. (Ps. 2 1:13)



Ara - the Altar. The burning fire prepared for His enemies.


Draco - The Dragon. The name comes from the Greek = Trodden on (Ps. 91:13). Brightest star Thuban = The subtle. Names of other stars all refer to similar aspects of the dragon.



Overall story told by Sagittarius

The heavenly sign shows the archer with his bow bent and an arrow fitted to the string. It is aimed directly at Antares, the star in the heart of Scorpio. In Sagittarius the emphasis shifts from the wounding by the adversary, to one of victory. The arrows of God are shot at the heart of the enemy. In the Zodiac of Dendera under the image of this constellation is the word Knem, meaning “He conquers.” We find the same word under the last sign of the Dendera Zodiac, that of Leo the Lion who is standing upon a serpent. This affirms that the Lion of Leo, and the Centaur of Sagittarius, refer to the same person. Numerous Scriptures come to mind in relation to this sign.

Psalms 45:3-5
Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, with Your glory and Your majesty. And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things. Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; The peoples fall under You.


Psalms 64:7
God shall shoot at them with an arrow; Suddenly they shall be wounded.

Revelation 6:2

And I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him; and he went out conquering, and to conquer.



Short Story: Goat / Scapegoat

Life comes from death; He's the Arrow of God, Pierced, springs up again in abundant life.

Ancient pictures are half goat, half fish; i.e. the sacrifice and those who it is sacrificed for.

Tribe of Israel: Zebulun

Primary star

Gedi -  Hebrew for “cut off”

Secondary star

Daneb Al Gedi -  meaning “The Sacrifice Comes.” (Isaiah 53:7-8)


Decans (secondary constellations)


Sagitta Decan – the Arrow

Aquila Decan – the Eagle

Delphinus Decan – the Dolphin


 Overall story told by Capricorn


Capricorn is the top half of a goat, and the bottom half is the tail of a fish. It is called the Sea Goat (Capricornus). It is wounded and on one knee, and some of the ancient star names indicated that it is a sacrifice. The goat was one of the sacrificial animals in the Law of Yahuah given to Moses. It was the animal used as the scapegoat that took upon itself the sins of Israel on the Day of Atonement (Lev. 16:10). After John the Immerser Mikveh’d Yahusha and laid his hands on our Messiah’s head, Yahusha “fled into the wilderness” in fulfillment of the shadow picture of the scapegoat.

Short Story: The Water Bearer

Life-waters from on High, Drinking the heavenly river, delivering the Good News, Carrying the wood of the sacrifice over all the earth.

Tribe of Israel: Reuben

Primary star

Sa’ad Al Melik -  means “record of the outpouring”

Secondary star

Al Sund – means “the pourer out.”


Decans (secondary constellations)


Picus Australis – the southern fish. Star Fom al Haut = the mouth of the fish.



Pegasus – the winged horse


CygnusThe Swan. Brightest star Deneb = The Judge or Adige = flying swiftly.


Overall story told by Aquarius

A man pouring out water on the Earth, living water (John 4:10, John 7:37-38, Isaiah 44:3-4). Aquarius is a Latin name meaning “the pourer forth of water.” The brightest star is located in the right shoulder and is called Sa’ad Al Melik, meaning “record of the outpouring.” The next star in brightness is Al Sund, “the pourer out.” A star in the urn bears the Egyptian name Mon, or Meon, being interpreted “the urn.” It is not difficult to find in the Scriptures references to Yahusha and the pouring forth of water.

When Yahusha encountered the woman of Samaria at the well, He said, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water” (John 4:10). In John 7:37-38 Yahusha cried out at the water ceremony of Sukkot ““If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.’”





Short Story: The Two Fish / Two Houses of Israel

The Redeemer's People multiplied, Supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. Star names indicate "the fish (multitudes) of those who will follow"- i.e. The chosen of Yahuah (Ps. 115:14).

Tribe of Israel: Simeon

Primary star

Al Deramin -  means the Quickly-Returning.

Secondary star

Al Phirk - means the Redeemer Decans (secondary constellations)

The Band - (that unites the two fish) (Hos. 11:4, Ephesians 2:15)

Andromeda - The Chained Woman (who will be delivered).


Cepheus - The Crowned King.


Overall story told by Pisces

The unusual feature of this constellation is that the two fish are drawn as being held together by a band. This band is a shadow picture of the Messiah who makes out of the two houses of Israel (the two fish) one new “man” or Remnant Israel.

Ephesians 2

14 For Yahusha is our peace, who hath made both (Jews and Gentiles) one, and hath broken down (the death decrees in The Law which were) the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished (nailed the death decrees to the cross) in his flesh which were the cause of the enmity (our fear of the death) toward the law, commandments and ordinances; for to make in himself of two, one new man, so making peace.

Pisces, of course, is symbolic of the redeemed of Yahuah, His called out sons. Yahusha told His disciples, “I will make you fishers of men.”

The shackles (on the Bride/Andromeda) of sin weigh down all mankind and have need of being broken. Isaiah, spoken by Yahusha as He began His ministry, were cited. “He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are downtrodden, to proclaim the favorable year of Yahuah.”  In Pisces, we see the conflict of man, a conflict that Yahusha triumphantly overcame.







Short Story: The Ram / Lamb

The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride (after being released from chains of sin) is made ready, Satan is bound, the Breaker (of chains) triumphs. Brightest star El Nath = wounded, slain; (others similar).

Tribe of Israel: Gad

Primary star

El Nath - wounded, slain; (others similar).

Secondary star

Schedir - (Hebrew) = freed.

Third star

Caph - The Branch (of victory). (Is. 54:1-8, 62:3-5).

Decans (secondary constellations)

Cassiopeia - The Beautiful Enthroned Woman. The captive woman (Andromeda) now delivered.

Cetus - the sea monster (Revelation 13). The enemy bound.


Perseus - The Breaker. Hebrew = Peretz. Greek = Perses (Micah 2:13). Winged feet = coming swiftly. Head he carries wrongly called Medusa by Greeks; Hebrew Rosh Satan = Head of the Adversary.


Overall story told by Pisces

Let me quote from Kenneth Fleming, in God’s Voice in the Stars:

Aries is the last of the signs in the second group, which includes Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries. This quartet of signs pictures the blessings of salvation. Capricorn signifies the blessings of salvation. Capricorn signifies the blessing of life from death. Aquarius pictures the blessing of salvation’s fullness. Pisces signifies the delay of the promised blessing. Now in Aries we see the blessing fully realized...

Aries has a most interesting and instructive message for the student of the biblical prophecy and the history of salvation. Aries usually carries the symbol of the ram, but many of the oldest zodiacs portray a lamb (with no horns), and in some ancient zodiacs the lamb has a circular crown on its head... The Hebrew name for Aries was Taleh, which means Lamb, while the Arabic name, Hamal, means Sheep, Gentle, Merciful... In Syriac the name for Aries is Amroo, meaning Lamb. The New Testament in that language uses the same word for the Lord Jesus; John the Baptist cried, “Behold the Lamb of God!” (John 1:29)”


Short Story: The Bull

The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime Vanquisher, the great Judgment, the ruling Shepherd. The Pleiades = The congregation of the judge.

Tribe of Israel: Ephraim

Primary star

Al Nitak - the wounded one.

Secondary star

Capella - she goat

Third star

The Pleiades - The congregation of the judge.

Decans (secondary constellations)

Orion - The coming Prince. Hebrew Oarion = light. He holds a club and the head of "the roaring lion" (1 Pet. 5:8). Betelgeuz = The coming of the branch. Rigol = the foot that crushes. Al Nitak = the wounded one.

Eridanus - The River of the Judge. Star names refer to "flowing" etc. (Dan. 7:10; Nahum 1:8).


Auriga - The Shepherd (Isaiah 40:10-11). Hebrew root = shepherd. Star Capella (Latin) = she goat.





 Overall story told by Taurus

Taurus.jpgHe is a great white bull of the variety of wild ox which has two long forward-pointing golden horns. His forelegs suggest that he is charging forward. On the other hand, he has seven doves on his back (the Seven Sisters), and some have suggested that the bent legs indicate that he is peacefully reclining. Here it is not the Greek myths, but the Book of Enoch (section 4, Chapter 85) which makes it clear what the white bull represents. It is the millennial Kingdom of Yahuah which will soon govern the earth for a thousand years, after the destruction of the wicked.







Short Story: The Twins

The Marriage of the Lamb, the Enemy is trodden down, the Prince comes in great Glory. There is some confusion of the pictures for this constellation in the different languages, but they generally refer to two people probably referring to the House of Israel and the House of Judah. The picture is also rendered as a man and a woman a picture of the Bride and Groom.

Tribe of Israel: Manasseh

Primary star

Castor - "the mortal Twin",

Secondary star

Pollux -  "the immortal Twin"

Decans (secondary constellations)

Ursa Minor - The Little Bear. No bears found in any ancient Zodiacs. Confusion may be from Hebrew Dohver Sheepfold, Dovh Bear.

Ursa Major - The Great Bear. Possibly "Sheepfold" as Ursa Minor as Al Naish "assembled together"; Dubhe = "Herd of animals or a flock" etc. Many stars similarly named.

Argo - Meaning is the "Return of the travelers".

Lepus - The Hare (the enemy); trodden under Orion's foot. Star names refer to "the deceiver" etc.



Canis Major (The Dog) or Sirius (The Prince). Sirius is the brightest of all stars. (Is. 9:6). And  Canis Minor - The Second Dog. Star Procyon Redeemer.


Overall story told by Gemini

Gemini-constellation-Hevelius.jpgThe tenth zodiac constellation is the two joined together (Gemini), who are the Bride and Groom and the Two Houses of Israel. This constellations has many “meanings” depending on the culture looking at it. If we consider the Plan of Salvation this constellation could be in reference to the dual nature of the Messiah. First coming as a man, the suffering servant; then returning divine as the conquering king. It can mean the reunification of the Two Houses of Israel. It can represent the Marriage between the Bride and Groom.

Yom Kippur is represented by Gemini. The story told by the major stars in the constellation Gemini are that of the Prince, having conquered his enemies and made them his footstool, comes in Great Glory to gather his Bride from all nations to attend The Wedding to unite the two houses of Israel.

When looking at this constellation in terms of “2000-year ages” it would be symbolic of Adam and Eve.



Short Story: The Crab

In Hebrew it is ‘Ash’ or Butterfly. To the Indians it was a Crab. Ancient Sumerians saw it as a Crayfish. In each case, the creature concerned rose to a new life out of its old shell. The brightest star is Acubene which is related to the Hebrew word for “hiding place.” This picture is reinforced by the Praesepe cluster. The word comes from Latin, means "a crib, a manger, a hive, or a fold for animals." In Job 38:32, God asked if Job could “Guide the constellation Ash (‘Butterfly’) with his ‘Multitude’ (‘Offspring’ or ‘Children’ or ‘Sons’)”. This refers to Cancer and the Praesepe cluster. It is all the more significant since Job had stated in his discussion in Job 19:25 “I know that my Redeemer Lives, and He will stand on the Earth in the Last Days. And though after death worms consume my body, yet in my flesh will I see God, whom my own eyes will behold, and not another’s.”

The name "Cancer" may be related to Arabic. In old Arabic this sign was “Khan Ker” which means "priest-prince."

The meanings of the name of the constellation itself and the associated stars may have to do with the Priest-Prince coming out of his hiding place dwell among men.

Sukkot is represented by Cancer. The Messiah was on the first day of Sukkot and circumcised on the 8th day, the Last Great Day.


Tribe of Israel: Issachar

Primary star

Acubene – Hiding place

Secondary star

Praesepe - a crib, a manger, a hive, or a fold for animals

Decans (secondary constellations)

Wrong info



cancer-constellation-jamieson-1822-sm.jpgOverall story told by Cancer

The crab can pick up things in its powerful right hand and deliver them to the desired destination. The Great Deliverer descended into hell and the gates of hell could not prevent him from delivering his people to freedom from the bondage of death and hell. This deliverance has not only happened in the past, it will yet happen in the future just before the beginning of the millennial reign of Yahusha. At that time, the righteous will again be delivered from the grasp of the seven-headed dragon kingdom (which has enslaved much of the entire world). This is where we are currently in the Heavenly Scroll.



Short Story: The Lion of the Tribe of Juda

The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, and his Carcass is devoured. The Lion of the tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5). Hebrew name means "Lion hunting down its prey". Name in other languages similar. Denebola Judge who cometh.

Tribe of Israel: Judah

Primary star

Alpha Regulus - treading under foot

Secondary star

Denebola - the judge comes (Num 24:8-9, Rev 5:5)

Decans (secondary constellations)

Hydra - The Serpent. Hydra means "He is abhorred". Star names similar.

Crater - The Cup. The pouring out of wrath on the wicked. (Ps 75:8, 11:6, Rev 14:10)

Corvus - The Raven. Birds of prey devouring the Serpent. (Prov 30:17, Rev 19:1)


Overall story told by Leo

The twelfth and last zodiac constellation is the Lion (Leo). He is a magnificent Lion which is pouncing on the head of the fleeing giant Water Serpent. In the Egypian planisphere,  he is shown actually standing on the serpent. So once again, a hero is attacking a serpent; and apparently focusing on crushing its head.

The religious symbolism of the lion is similar. Yahusha is referred to as the "Lion of the tribe of Judah" (Rev. 5:5), and the lion seems to refer to Yahusha the Messiah in his role as King. This constellation most likely refers to the Messiah as King of Kings, reigning all during the coming Millennium, after he has destroyed the beast.


So Isaiah (and the Sphinx) tells us to begin with Virgo and end with Leo, to reveal the “message in the heaves”. Let us see what that message contains that has witnessed to all mankind since creation.

The Gospel message contained in the Heavenly Scroll is:

VIRGO: A virgin will give birth to a beautiful glorious and righteous branch. The seed of the woman will be a man of humiliation, to rise to be the desire of nations; and will become exalted first as shepherd then as harvester. LIBRA: The scales demand a price to be paid of this seed, a cross to endure; the victim will be slain and purchase a crown. SCORPIO: There is a conflict between the seed and the serpent, leading to a struggle with the enemy, the enemy is vanquished. SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (servant/king) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon. CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death, he's the Arrow of Yahuah, and he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life. AQUARIUS: He pours out “living water” from on high, humanity drinks of the heavenly river, and the faithful live again. He is the deliverer of the good news (Gospel), Carrying the wood of the sacrifice over the earth. PISCES: The Redeemer's people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, and the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the strong man triumphs. TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the ruling Shepherd King. GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb, the enemy is trodden down; the Prince comes in great Glory. CANCER: The great Bride, the two Houses of Judah and Israel are united; they are brought safely into the kingdom. LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, and his Carcass is devoured. The Lion of the tribe of Judah rules as King.

Truly, "their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world'." Mankind is left with no excuses. Now that we know the REAL meaning of the Zodiac, it becomes obvious why the enemy has made it the focus of perversion!



The Solar Messiah

To the ancients, the signs of the Zodiac correspond to what they called “The Grand Man” that we know as the Messiah. This image of a man is still pictured in modern almanacs with each sign corresponding to a part of his body;

grand man

The Zodiac was the for runner of modern science, astronomy, and medicine. Before modern technology, doctors would study the Natal Chart of their patience to help diagnose illness.

Medical Astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with the workings of the human body. A competent medical astrologer can analyze a person's birth chart and determine bodily strengths and weaknesses, proneness to various disease states, and nutritional deficiencies. In the event of illness or disease, a medical astrologer will use predictive methods to try to determine the severity and duration of the disease. Sometimes a medical astrologer can help determine the course of a disease by the use of a chart called a decumbiture chart. We see this Messiah figure at the center of the Zodiac Chart. The Sun is a metaphor for him; it is the basis for Leonardo Da Vinci’s medicine man and our universal medical symbol.


It is this Messiah or Grand Man pictured within the Zodiac that is pointed to by the 12 signs of the Zodiac. As we have demonstrated, this “solar messiah” or Grand Man is Yahusha, the Messiah of Israel, the son of Yahuah. The “symbol” of the Grand Man or Solar Messiah came to be the center of the Zodiac because the Sun is a metaphor for him. A cutout of the center of the Zodiac became the universal symbol of all the mythical figures and false messiahs humanity created across cultures.  Below is an illustration of the origin of the cross, it is taken from the center of the Zodiac.


The ancients didn’t understand its message and the Cross became the symbol of all the myths made up around this message. All “Christs” are shown with the Sun and the Zodiac “Cross” behind their head. This symbol is what identifies them as “Solar Messiahs”. It remains today the symbol of Jesus H. Christ adorning the tops of churches world-wide. I will cover this symbol in greater detail throughout this book series. Let us look now at “why” Sun worship became so prevalent in ancient cultures.


The Sun foretells the crucifixion and resurrection


sun of god


Many of the world's mythical sacrificed god men have their traditional birthday on December 25 which is where we get Christmas. This represents the ancient recognition that (from a perspective in the northern hemisphere) the sun makes a yearly descent southward until December 21 or 22, the winter solstice, when it stops moving southerly for three days and it “hangs” on the North Cross in the sky. After 3 days of appearing to stand still very low on the horizon, the sun then starts to move northward again or is “resurrected”. During this time, people back then believed that "God's sun" had "died" for three days and was "born again" on December 25. After December 25, the Sun moves 1 degree, this time north, foreshadowing longer days. And thus it was said, the Sun died on the cross, was dead for 3 days, only to be resurrected or born again.


The Sun is a physical metaphor of the Son

In the Gospel of Luke below, The Messiah’s very advent is depicted as a visitation from the "dayspring on high": "Through the tender mercy of our Elohim; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us..." The word for "dayspring" or "day" in the original Greek is ἀνατολή or anatole, which means "sunrise, east." We see a clear picture that the sun in the sky was created by Yahuah as a metaphor of The Messiah. The sun of Yahuah is metaphorically in the heavens a picture of The Son of Yahuah.

Luke 1

67 His father Zechariah was filled with the Spirit of Yahuah and prophesied: 68 “Praise be to Yahuah, the Elohim of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. 69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David 76 And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before Yahuah to prepare the way for Him, 77 to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, 78 because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from (the) heaven(ly scroll) 79 to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.”

We see this metaphor used many times tying the role of the sun in the sky to the role of the Messiah on Earth:

Matthew 17 - The Transfiguration

17 After six days Yahusha took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light.


Revelation 1

16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.


Malachi 4

2...the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.




In these verses Yahusha is symbolized as sunlight:

·         A red sunset, signifying Yahusha’s bleeding. "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many." - Mark 14:24

·         "I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness." - John 12:46

·         "In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from Yahuah whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light." - John 1:4-8

·         "The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world." - John 1:9

·         "...the Messiah will shine on you." - Ephesians 5:14

·         "I am the light of the world that every eye will see." - Revelations 1:7


If every eye can see this "light of the world," it is understandable that many people in ancient times believed the Messiah to be the sun itself, as they had with numerous gods preceding Yahusha’s first coming. It is not only natural but logical that thousands of people in the earliest days of Christianity would have believed Yahusha to be the same as the gods they were already worshipping, the bulk of which possessed attributes of the solar messiah and were often considered to be sun gods to a significant extent.

At lower angles the sun has more atmosphere to punch through, so red sunrises and sunsets appear with increasing frequency. Ancients saw these natural events as their sun god weakening as it was falling and bleeding. We see the sun’s metaphor clearly below:

  • The sun is the "Light of the World." - John 8:12
  • The sun is “anointed” when its rays dip into the sea.
  • The sun rising in the morning is the "Savior of mankind," as well as the "healer" or "savior" during the day.
  • The sun wears a corona, "crown of thorns" or halo.
  • The sun "walks on water," describing its reflection. - John 6:19
  • The sun's "followers," "helpers" or "disciples" are the 12 months and the 12 signs of the zodiac or constellations, through which the sun travels about annually.
  • The sun at 12 noon is "Most High" in the sky; thus, "he" begins "his Father's work" at "age" 12.
  • The sun enters into each sign of the zodiac at 30°; hence, the "Sun of God" begins his ministry at "age" 30.
  • The sun's warmth turns water into wine through ripening grapes.




The Messiah as ‘The Son of Man’


The Son of Man in the Gospels can be linked to the constellation Orion. Revelation’s description of the Son of Man fits the pattern of stars in the constellation Orion. The star on his right shoulder is bright red (upper left star). The three stars at his waist were later seen as to shadow three wise men who announced the birth of the Messiah.

The Son of Man has a cluster of stars in the background that look like the clouds upon which the Son of Man rides. Astronomical maps show the Milky Way behind the constellation Orion. From earth, they look like clouds.

Revelation 1:12-20

"Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lamp stands, and in the midst of the lamp stands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden girdle round his breast; his head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters; in his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth issued a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength."


Revelation 14:14-20

"And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of Man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle."

Orion, as seen in human form, has his right hand holding a sickle or a club or a sword. His left hand could be holding an animal skin, a shield or a bow. The Milky Way is behind him. The arc above him represents the Sun’s path. The line going through his waist is the celestial equator which runs parallel to earth’s equator.

Matthew 17:22-23

"As they were gathering in Galilee, Yahusha said to them, 'The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day.' And they were greatly distressed."

When the sun goes below the equator into the dark days, it is said to be delivered to the enemy. While the earth rotates, the stars appear to be moving westerly until they dip below the horizon. Three days later they reappear in the eastern horizon. 

Matthew 26:63-64

..."'tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of Yahuah.' Yahusha said to him, 'You have said so. But I tell you; hereafter you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.'"

When facing North, Orion’s rising in the East can be seen as rising from the right. Orion appears at the right hand of the Sun. The constellation Orion is clearly declared to be a creation of Yahuah in scripture, further supporting the truth that the Zodiac and all the signs are His creation.

Amos 5:8
[Seek him] that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: Yahuah [is] his name:


Job 38:3

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?


Job 9:9

Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.


Job 38:31-32

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?


Psalms 127:4

As arrows [are] in the hand of a mighty man; so [are] children of the youth.



The Messiah as the Bread of Heaven




The constellation Virgo is associated with the heavenly bread. We see Yahusha the Messiah declare he is the living bread that came down from heaven, the one whom Yahuah has given his “seal of approval”. Could that “seal of approval” be the Original Revelation found in the Gospel message of the Zodiac by the constellation Virgo? Yahusha encourages the Jews below to “believe in the one whom Yahuah has sent” that as I have demonstrated in this book was revealed by the Zodiac in the heavens.

 Below in this one passage of scripture Yahusha references the living bread (Virgo/Manna) in heaven and the Son of Man (Orion):

John 6

25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” 26 Yahusha answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him Yahuah the Father has placed his seal of approval.” 28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works Yahuah requires?” 29 Yahusha answered, “The work of Yahuah is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” … 32 Yahusha said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven (manna), but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of Yahuah is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
