THE VIRGO MOON CYCLES
A PROPHETIC PATTERN OF A TRAVAILING
‘Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children. Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery? Says YHVH. Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your GOD. Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her. For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.’ –Isaiah 6:7-11
The purpose of this study is to investigate how many times the Moon passes through the constellations, specifically Virgo. Precisely how many Moon phases will occur during the astronomical ‘gestation’ period wherein Jupiter, the Planet of the Messiah is within the ‘womb’ of Virgo during the Great Sign of Virgo as depicted in the book of Revelation 12. It appears that astronomically the Moon passes through Virgo’s ‘womb’ as if to be ‘birthed’ 12 times or roughly once every month from the time Jupiter enters the ‘womb’ to when it is ‘birthed’ as the Manchild. As the Sun revolves around the ‘houses’ or station of the Mazzaroth of Zodiac, generally speaking it stays in 1 sign for approximately 30 degrees of arch or 30 x 12 = 360 degrees, etc.
The 12 constellations can also be configured in a ‘clock’ depiction that equals 12 months or a 1 year revolution. Each Sign is thus correlating to an ‘hour’ of cosmic time, prophetic time even. Out of the 12 Celestial Sign, 4 have anthropomorphic attributes. Out of the 4 main Zodiac Signs, only Virgo has a unique characteristic of being female but also a Virgin that yet ‘births’ the various celestial bodies such as the Sun and the Moon that traverse the Ecliptic. Specifically, the ‘womb’ area can be seen as a typology of a birthing and specifically to the study of Moon sequences during the ‘gestation’ period of Jupiter, the monthly convergence of the Moon in Virgo can also be seen as a menstrual cycle.
This study suggests that likewise the monthly Moon cycles occurring monthly in each of the 12 constellation alludes to, as it were a menstruation cycle. This is especially true when the Sign of Virgo is considered. This attribute is a fascinating typology of a menstruation period. The word itself comes from the root word ‘Moon’. This monthly lunar cycle of the constellation mysteriously is tied to a human woman’s menstrual cycle, on Earth as it is in the Heavenlies with Virgo in particular. This celestial time thus ‘clocks’ a Moon cycle roughly 12 phases once every month for 12 months, which equals a 144 (12x12) numerical coefficient. What is rather interesting is that 12 Moon cycles will encompass the during of the entire time to include the climax of the Great Sign.
Thus this study suggests that the ‘rapture’ that is implied of the Manchild that is snatched-up to the Throne of Heaven is not the Body or Bride of Christ but the 144,000 that were initially sealed and commissions of Israel’s 12 tribes after the Revelation chapter 4 Rapture of the Bride of Christ as typified in the Apostle John. Thus the Great Sign of Virgo is a mid-Tribulation Rapture, chronologically. Astronomically is occurring in 2017 as a focal point in time and space is it has a 3-fold fulfillment; past, present as there are 7 Raptures in Revelation. The Sign is rehearsing the typology of the Sign’s implication, prophetically. It is what has happened, is about to happen and will happen in terms of a Rapture. The chart will establish this particular timeline of Moon phases from when the Giant Gas planet Jupiter enters or ‘impregnates’ astronomically Virgo on November 20, 2017.
The planet Jupiter as a type of the Manchild is ‘birthed’ on September 9, 2017, just 13 days out from the Great Virgo Sign. What will become of this time remains to be seen as there is a growing whirlwind of speculation and conjecture on the meaning of the Virgo Sign of the book of Revelation itself and its possible prophetic implications. Will this time be and see a great ‘travailing’ occur? Of whom? Israel and/or the Body of Christ? The AntiChrist and New World Order? World War III? What will be ‘birthed on September 23, 2017 if anything at all? As far as a ‘Sign’ goes, this study suggests that the actual event is to come thereafter so the ‘Sign’ is not the actual event itself. As the Great Sign of Virgo is climaxing to the point of its astronomical alignment on September 23, 2017, this study suggests that the anthropomorphic properties suggest a ‘birthing’ of the King Planet Jupiter that the Jews refer to as Melchizedek or the ‘King of Righteousness’.
In other words, the Messiah type as ‘King of the Universe’, etc. However, could there by a duality if this aspect of rather the AntiChrist that coming to ‘birth’? The Sign is ‘Great’, as referenced by the dictation of Jesus Christ to His last living Apostle, John as a type of the Beloved or Bride of Christ. The Sun and the Moon configure a multilayered cryptic and prophetic ‘Sign’ for the Last Days. All can agree that at least the Biblical and prophetic type is thus suggested to occur astronomically the day after Rosh Hashanah on the Rabbinical Calendar on September 23, 2017. What is also fascinating to contemplate is what will be that other ‘Great Sign’ that conjoins the Virgo Sign, mainly the Giant Red Dragon?
The other ‘Great Sign’ of the Red Dragon cannot be astronomically Serpens in the constellation of Ophiuchus, which faces Virgo as that ‘serpent’ or dragon is only 1-headed and never ascribed to being more than that even in the ancient Mazzaroth depictions. It cannot be Hydra the ‘sea monster below the Ecliptic and Virgo as that is also always depicted as a 1-headed Leviathan as well. Thus could the coming ‘7-headed Red Dragon ‘Sign’ be also a sort of heavenly body in keeping with the consistency of the Sun, Moon and the Stars that adorn Virgo during the climax of the Revelation 12 Sign? This study suggests that it will be some heavenly body that could, in all actually be the speculated 7-planet Red Dwarf Nemesis? One can thus take this astronomical alignment 1 step further in the anthropomorphic attributes of the sign.
As noted, as far as the Rapture typology goes, there is clear language that a rapture does occur as depicted in the Revelation 12 Virgo Sign. However, there is much debate as to when it will occur. Will it occur at that time and whether it is of the body of Christ or that of Christ? As it is a ‘Sign’ and one that is prophetic in the Bible always appears to have a multilayer attribute for sure. For example, if one takes the book of Revelation chronologically, many believe that the initial Rapture of the Bride of Christ occurs at the ‘rapturing’ or calling-up of the Apostle John, whom is the representation corporeal of the Beloved Bride of Christ is the Rapture. In other studies, it has been shown that this initial Rapture kicks-off the 1st of 7 raptures of the book of Revelation. The point is that the Great Virgo Sign and its corresponding rapture correspond and foreshadows the future rapture of a mid-Tribulation.
Specifically, it will be perhaps the rapture of the 144,000 Hebrews and all their fruit that were marked and commissioned with the Testimony of and to Jesus Christ. This transference of the Gospel Mantle will be like that of the one transferred from Elijah to Elisha will occur once the Ambassadors -that of the Bride of Christ’s Royal Commission concludes at the end of the Church Age with the Rapture. The mid-Tribulation is also believed by many to be the point in which the AntiChrist false Messiah is revealed; perhaps after the assassination attempt and the fake resurrection. It is at that time that the Remnant of Israel flees to the hills into the wilderness of Petra. This scenario is precisely the time of ‘after the tribulation of those days’ that Christ warned Israel about and alluded by the Great Virgo Sign wherein the Manchild is born first, then a ‘travailing or tribulation occurs for Israel, not the Church.
It is believed also that at the mid-point of the Tribulation the Abomination of Desolation is set up in the 3rd Temple that Christ also spoke about in the future tense. This prophetic triple shadow is not only backward in prophetic time as it was completed in Christ but it will be casting its prophetic shadow in the future pertaining to Israel. However there are those that do not see this scenario chronologically as there are clear prophetic overlays that the Great Virgo Sign is rehearsing of a prior typology, mainly a retelling of the prophetic typology in the past of how Mary did give birth to the Messiah that is to rule with an Iron Scepter and was taken up. In the future rehearsal, it is the Virgin, Israel in this association that thus flees to the Wilderness. The Great Virgo Sign is a multilayered ‘Sign’ that is casting its shadow presently.
Presently, such a sign may actually be also associated with the true Rapture of the Bride of Christ as portrayed in the Manchild’s Rapture. The word in the Greek is the same used as a violent snatching away from danger like that of Lot in Sodom for example. The context is the climax to the Great Sign of Virgo the day after Rosh HaShanah of the Rabbinical Calendar in 2017. Technically, the astronomical ‘Sign of Virgo’ will occur on the 1st day of the Jewish Year 5778. What is rather interesting is that the 12 Moon cycles that encompasses the Jupiter ‘gestation’ period within the ‘womb’ of Virgo leading-up to the Great Sign of September 23, 2017 is that it is ‘kicked-off’ by a spectacular Supermoon.
The Supermoon of November 14, 2016 is the last one of the year and supposedly the closest to Earth so far in the 21st century. The last one occurred nearly 70 years ago on January 25, 1948 some 110 days from May 14, 1948. That date saw the ‘birth’ of Israel as a nation, a Virgin as the Virgo Sign in the Heavenlies. It was at that time coincidentally that 7 Muslim armies sought to devour the ‘Manchild’ as the enfant nation much like the 7-headed Red Dragon. Many believe this historical ‘birth’ of the modern State of Israel, although imperfect and in disbelief is the Biblical and prophetic fulfillment to the budding of the Fig Tree. This is the ‘Sign’ and typology that Jesus Christ alluded to would occur in the Last Days and the nation born in ‘1 hour’ as foretold by Isaiah. The nation was miraculously delivered as war did ensue much like it will and is depicted in Revelation 13 after the Manchild is secured.
There will be a literal celestial war as Lucifer, the Red Dragon seeks one last frontal assault into the Throne Room of YHVH in Haven and Israel on Earth. This 2nd half of the 7-year Sabbatical Cycle of Daniel is what is attributed to be specifically the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. Also realize that '9 months' from September 9, 2017 to December 23/24, 2016 coincides to the eve of Chanukah, on the Rabbinical Calendar. Many believe that Jesus Christ was conceived on a Chanukah holiday. The feast of Chanukah on the Creation Calendar is exactly 1 month earlier on November 24th which will be Thanksgiving in the American Union; very interesting.

To Supermoon November 14, 2016 = 25,021 days 68 years, 6 months
Impregnation of Jupiter in Virgo: November 20, 2016 = 25,027 days 68 years, 6 months, 6 days
Birth of Jupiter of Virgo Sign: September 09, 2017 = 25,320 days 69 years, 3 months, 26 days
Great Virgo Sign Alignment: September 23, 2017 = 25,334 days 69 years, 4 months, 9 days
One particular observation about the 12 Moon cycles or phases is that after the Supermoon, the 12 cycles begin with a Waning Crescent phase and transitions to a Full Moon to then end the ‘gestation’ period with a Waxing Crescent phase. It is an amazing tapestry of astronomical symmetry and divine clockwork. The climax occurs on the sighting of the New Moon’s thin silver sliver on Rosh HaShanah of September 20, 2017. As to the Manchild being the 'Bride' or Body of Christ, some say yes, others no, or it can't because it's 'male'.
Regardless of any misinterpretation, the Great Sign of Virgo in Revelation 12 does have a distinctive ‘rapture’ picture/typology occurring. Many would say that the Bride of Christ is always portrayed as feminine but yet it is also referred to as the Body of Christ. Point taken that the Church is never conveyed as a 'male' but prophetically it can. Is Christ Jesus a female? No. Isn't the typology of the Church feminine also yet considered the 'Body of Christ', masculine? Thus the Manchild could typify and accommodate such a sign. Consider also prophetically the example of the Apostle Paul.
Paul encountered a similar construct of prophetic ‘signs’ given to him by the risen Christ in a dream about evangelizing Asia. The actual realization of what he was given in the vision resulted in the opposite sex. In the dream and/or vision the Apostle Paul had concerning his heart’s desire to evangelize Asia, the LORD had another plan and opposite direction, Europe instead. In the vision of Paul there was a Macedonian Man that called out for Paul to ‘come over and help us’.
Yet this ‘man’ turned out to be a woman, Lydia, the seller of purple. Thus in fact the first European, and as Aeuropa, a women, turned out to be the prophetic fulfillment of the vision of the Macedonian Call. The Apostle was specifically directed to go to Greece and not Asia to preach the Gospel. However in the ‘Sign’ of the dream Paul had, it was a Macedonian Man that was calling him yet it turned out to be a woman. Thus, could the Manchild turn-out to be woman? A Church? A Virgin Bride of Christ instead to fulfill the present prophetic shadow to be realized of the Great Sign of Virgo?
