There are several converging factors around the Spring Tetrad of 2014. The much talked about Tetrad occurs right in the middle of the Retrograde of Mars in Virgo. Virgo is often spoken of representing Israel as is Leo also. These are the 2 signs of the Mazzaroth that Israel is alluded to in Scripture. Interestingly, the Mazzaroth or Zodiac starts with Virgo and ends with Leo. Prophetically speaking, it could be the case that as far as Israel is concerned, the order is being reversed in the End Times. The Biblical fulfillment of the convergence of all prophecy started with Israel becoming a nation in the constellation Leo and could possibly be ending with Virgo. In this case of the Retrograde of Mars in Leo, there was war in Israel as a result, the War of Independence.
These 2 signs of Leo and Virgo correspond to the key prophetic times of Israel in modern history. Incredibly, the UN’s Partition Plan and Israel’s independence declaration in 1948 occurred in Leo at the precise time when Mars conjoined with Regulus on both accounts. The recapturing of Jerusalem occurred when the Retrograde of Mars occurred within days of the Tetrad of April 24, 1967 as it conjoined with Spica. In that case also, the Retrograde of Mars was in Virgo and there was war in Israel as a result, the 6-Day War.
What this study and illustration shows is that the Retrograde of Mars is also occurring and will reach mid-point during the 3rd Tetrad staring on April 14, 2014. This last Tetrad sequence of 2014-15 is part of the cluster of 3 that started in 1949. The Retrograde of Mars pattern is as follows. The Retrograde of Mars occurred in Leo during the Declaration of Independence in May of 1948. The same event occurred in Virgo during the capture of Jerusalem in 1967. Now the Retrograde of Mars will be at mid-point as the 3rd Tetrad series in the 66th year will occur also in Virgo.
What could be also prophetic is that this Retrograde of Mars in association to the Tetrad leads up to the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of World War I by about 2 weeks. Is this possibly significant or coincidental? Although the Retrograde of Mars is cyclical, this rare convergence with the Tetrad could be the pattern that could be prophetic as it relates to some in Israel’s orthodox community quest to build the Jewish 3rd Temple. Thus the Retrograde of Mars in Virgo could likewise be signaling that there will be war in Israel as a result. This is only stipulated as a result of the prior the Mars conjunctions of 1948 and 1967.
Many believe that the conditions that led up to World War I are currently present in the geo-politics of the Middle East. Currently the main efforts to arrive at a final peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians are undertaken by the USA. Specifically, Secretary of State, John Kerry is spearheading the debates with much opposition and criticism. Despite a dragging-on of the peace talks, it is speculated that a settlement of some type or to a certain degree will be reached by April 2014. This timing will coincide precisely with the Tetrad and the Retrograde of Mars.
Although the US has been much involved in foreign entanglements in the Middle East, as with Iraq and Afghanistan, its populace back at home, in general is much asleep as it was prior to World War I. What this study strongly suggests is that if the Mars Retrograde and the Tetrad patterns have some validity to them, then there will be war in Israel as it was for their war for their independence, war for Jerusalem and perhaps now a coming ‘god of war’ for their Temple.
The peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority that would divide Israel and establish the State of Palestine would in effect take Israel’s borders to the pre 6-Day War. This means that the Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount would have to be given up as it would constitute the new capital of Palestine. Yet these issues of contention still remain to be worked out but a resolution, be it an intermediate or final treaty is said to be achieved by April of 2014, around the time of the start of the Tetrad’s 1st Blood Moon and the coinciding with mid-point of the Retrograde of Mars.
In all actuality, as the politicians are claiming ‘Peace and Safety’ for Israel and Palestine’s recognition of Israel, the Bible speaks of there being a ‘sudden destruction’ instead. Could all this talks of peace and safety for Israel instead be the spring in the trap that will instead unleash an orchestrated Arab assault on Israel as in the Psalm 83 depicts?
The dates surrounding the statehood of Israel in 1948, the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967 and the start of the Tetrad in 2014 all have a Retrograde of Mars associated to these Biblical prophetic fulfillments. The first 2 prophetic events occurred on Pentecost, as some have calculated time. Will the 3rd event that may occur during the Tetrad up to the eve of Pentecost June 7, 2014 also be prophetic?
In astronomy, a retrograde is the appearance of a celestial object, in this case, planets moving backwards against the sky. This is an effect based on the relative difference is speed of the planets as they revolve around the Sun. As the orbits are circular around the Sun, inevitably, some planets will pass others and in the process ‘appear’ as though the planets are moving ‘backwards’ for a time before moving forward once again. For example, Mercury will have a very prominent Retrograde in-between the time of the Tetrad of 2015.
The following illustration depicts the exact position of Mars when the 1st Blood Moon of the Tetrad Apr 15, 2014 occurs.
Nov 22: Mars enters Virgo
Feb 01: In line with Spica
Mar 01: Start of Retrograde (approximate)
Mar 27: In line with Spica (’impregnates Virgo’ )
Apr 15: Exactly mid-way of Retrograde (Tetrad starts)
May 20: End of Retrograde (approximate)
Jun 13: Conjunction with Spica
>From start of Mars Retrograde to end
Mat 1, 2014 to May 20, 2014
= 81 days or 2 months 20 days or 11 weeks
This is the same amount of time that the Retrograde occurred in Virgo on 1967 by 1 day.
>From Spica alignments Mar 27, 2014 to end of Jul 13, 2014
= 108 day or 3 months 16 days or 15 weeks
(14 days from WWI 100 Year Anniversary
>From start of Tetrad April 15, 2014 to end of Mars RETROGRADE May 20, 2014
= 88 day or 2 months 28 days (excluding end date)

Mar 10: Start of Retrograde (approximate)
Apr 20: ’impregnates Virgo’

Jun 07: Temple Mount Captured
Mar 20, 1967 (Spring Equinox) to May 28, 1967 end of Retrograde
= 70 days or 2 months, 9 days or 10 weeks
(echoes of AD 70 when the Temple Mount was destroyed)

The God of War
There was a war that determined a favorable outcome for the Nation of Israel during Israel’s Independence in 1948-1949 and in the recapture of Jerusalem, in 1967. This study strongly suggests that the Retrograde of Mars was a ‘Sign’ in the Heavenlies that coincided precisely with the prophetic dates in Israel’s modern history.
1. The War of Independence
2. The 6-Day War
Since Israel’s independence, there have been numerous wars with its Muslim neighbors and on-going skirmishes but if the Retrograde of Mars parallels these 2 prior dates in Israel’s history, then perhaps the beginning of the Tetrad 2014 could see a similar war with Israel that will see the following.
1. A favorable result for Israel
2. Possible expansion of Lands and
3. The inevitable rebuilding of Temple
Interestingly the Spring 2014 Mars Retrograde at the time of the conjunction with Spica will be 15 days from the 100th Year Anniversary of World War I. Could this Retrograde in conjunction to the Tetrad signal thus the coming of 3rd World War?
