THE STARS OF ISRAEL’S RED HEIFER

A CREATURE WITH A DESTINY?

It’s quite a question. Born last year, is Israel’s Red Heifer  likely to stay red and be the true and ritually perfect one whose ashes can be used in dedication of the anticipated third temple? Although, surprisingly, a couple of apparently pure red heifers have been born this year  too, there are some highly suggestive indications that the kosher true one quite likely finally arrived last August  and I am surprised I never examined this more closely before to pass an opinion.  After all, the whole question is now almost inextricably tied in with the current mounting expectations of a Messiah for Israel and full blown apocalyptic expectations in some Christian circles  (partly addressed in my recent “Rabbi Kanievsky’s Messianic Purim 2019”  on this site. https://wp.me/p4kNWg-qd).

Just what the Red Heifer is and does, touches on some sensitive points of doctrine and difference between Judaism and Christianity. The Red Heifer of Num 19, is a unique sacrifice within Judaism, a sin offering which takes place outside the city walls and is effectively a collective purification from sin and the greatest impurity of all which is death.

The mainstream rabbinic position is that Israel is living in a state of ritual impurity unless and until the Temple system of sacrifice is restored. The Christian position as outlined in especially  the Epistle to Hebrews and its Chap 10, is that Jesus made the sacrifice once and for all time for the sins of the world, rendering animal sacrifice unnecessary. Christians today seem divided  over whether any rebuilt temple that awaits its heifer is a positive move (a symbol and reminder of God to the world) or a signal/trigger of apocalyptic events since a false prophet or Antichrist will arrive to defile and stop the rituals of any new temple, or even a trigger to both possibilities.

One thing is rather clear amid differing beliefs. There is an affinity of sorts between the symbolism of Jesus and the Red Heifer. Jesus died, and the Red Heifer must uniquely die, outside the city walls and both are understood to die as radical sin offerings. Jesus “lamb of God” is as  much and possibly more the unique heifer, and both have been born under the sign of precision and perfection, of health and cure, Virgo, itself the ideal of the opposite sign, Pisces, sign of the  (approx. 2100 year) age  now declining and at its last gasps. For the astrology of Jesus, data that work for Jesus issue to this day, see https://goo.gl/x8KASy

I will read this in two ways, first as a day chart and  where relevant  in relation to Israel, and second in relation to the regularly working data I claim to have for Christ. (See https://wp.me/p2v96G-ip)  Following   this I will have some things to say about the last Purim and “messianic” developments from that.

  • For the day of the Red’s birth (28.8.2018) we have no exact time or place, so I will follow custom and take the generalizing average of midday at Jerusalem. It  happens to be a potent choice, as the sun has just entered 5 Virgo where it conjoins asteroid JERUSALEM for that day, while Jupiter, the religion and beliefs planet, conjuncts the ascendant (the point rising on the horizon). Also the chart’s  base angle (origins,  traditions) at 24 Leo manages to be near conjunct modern Israel’s TEMPEL  asteroid, an incidental relevance.
  • Surprising, revolutionary, unique Uranus is suitably placed in Taurus, sign of the bull and any heifers. It’s a sign, besides, long associated with Israel which in modern times was born under Taurus in 1948. Uranus is also perfectly trine Saturn, symbol both of any traditions and any guilt, and at 2 degrees Capricorn very strong in the sign of its rulership. By tradition Israel wants to purge guilt with this heifer.
  • The birth can be world relevant and sacrifice associated especially as CHIRON, the wounded healer planetoid, is at 1 degree of Aries, namely on one of the six world points. ( O Aries is such a point, but anything up to 1.30 degrees is counted as on that degree).
  • At 2 of Taurus, Uranus in tension square to asteroid REDDISH at 2 Leo, heightens controversy around the status and significance of the heifer and whether she will remain completely red as required, – which she likely will. Reddish in a fixed sign (fiery red Leo) favours remaining red!
  • That this birth seriously involves Israel and its religion is indicated by the way at 16 Scorpio Jupiter, the faith and beliefs factor, makes fortunate easy trine to asteroid ISRAEL at 16 Cancer and to Neptune, strong in the sign it rules, at 15 Pisces…incidentally sign of the outgoing era.
  • That involved, however indirectly, are matters concerning the Messiah, is indicated by the challenging and tense opposition of asteroid MASI (Ar. Messiah) to Pluto, the judgement, force majeure, even deity planet.
  • Asteroid COLPA (sin/guilt) at 4 Cancer happens to be conjunct modern Israel’s Venus at 4 Cancer. This is all the more significant if one takes the usual, most working chart for Israel which shows Venus in its ninth house of beliefs and religion. So religious Israel wants the purification of this sin offering.                                                                              I am nonetheless bound to concede all of this may represent wishes, desires and expectations around the birth rather than its final identity.

THE HEIFER to JESUS’ CHART

I will now highlight the pattern of the day as it agrees and disagrees in connection with data for Jesus but either way suggests an element of destiny and involvement with many beliefs.

  • The sun is in Jesus’ sign of Virgo and at just 5 degrees it falls opposite his JACOBI, possibly indicating difference with traditions of the sons of Jacob.
  • Mercury (any news) at 16 Leo conjuncts JERUSALEM in Jesus’ chart. The heifer is all about Jerusalem  and being just outside it.
  • Venus, strong in its own sign, Libra  at 20 degrees, conjuncts SALMON (a variant Solomon name) itself in suggestively easy and favourable trine to Jesus’ 19 Gemini TEMPEL (Ger. temple) asteroid. This has to reflect current desires to restore the temple of Solomon. (Solomon as SALOMIN was in Jesus’ fourth house of his origins and ancestry along with other biblical notables).
  • At 16 Scorpio, religion planet and Bethlehem star, Jupiter,  well and truly reflects the confusion and argument about the meanings and fate of any  third temple and sacrifices. It manages to conjunct SETHOS (Seth/Set/Satan) which is bookend conjuncted at 15 and 17 Scorpio respectively by MALUS (bad) and PALOMA (dove) which is like some devil and Holy Spirit contention over religious issues.
  • Uranus at 2 Taurus is opposite Jesus’ VERITAS (Truth) at 2 Scorpio, incidentally a natal position suggestive that truth about Jesus has a lot to do with death and the issue of his death and transformation, ideas which as we know is not ultimately in harmony with what the heifer represents.
  • Pluto at 19 Capricorn is hitting a conjunction of several asteroids in Jesus’s pattern including ABBE (Father). The issue of the heifer involves both Jewish and Christian beliefs around how much the Father can be contacted and worshipped and will forgive.

I think the above is enough to signify the Red Heifer’s birth is timely and relevant for many current beliefs and that she is quite  likely to stay the course fully red and prove the elect creature that let’s the temple be dedicated. But she now has rivals whose dates I don’t find advertised. This whole subject is rather under wraps, no one knows where the heifers are being kept and raised.

Meanwhile….and to continue the story and issues of Rabbi Kanievsky’s Messianic Purim….

PURIM AND POST PURIM EFFECTS

Where Israel was concerned the real surprise and gift of the festival proved not to be a hidden, emerging Messiah but Trump’s recognition of the historic Golan as Israel and not just “occupied territory”.

This intervention was clear enough, but post Purim 2019 a measure of confusion (some of it a bit amusing in line with Purim’s carnival spirit) prevails. Indeed, I can hardly keep up with and understand it all. Poor Rabbi Kanievsky who I  now find has stated the Messiah was born last July, must have felt short changed by the events of the festival that were supposed to present the Messiah to a few before a greater revelation around the elections and Passover. (But if he were still an infant, could the messianic crown anyway even fit his head?!).

What Rabbi Kaviensky and his devotees have been left to absorb is the embarrassment of someone apparently taking him at his word and more. On the evening of Purim, a not totally unknown figure once deported from Israel, King Ra-El (aka Raymond Elwood Lear b. June 9th 1968 in Illinois), was featured live stream on social media in English from Baja Mexico. The region is one  that Jews  have long inhabited and which has a kosher farm there that a time back announced it had produced a red heifer, though of course one from within Israel was always to be preferred and now lays claim.

Beneath a canopy blown by sea breezes, Ra-El swathed in Messianic garments arrived, a little  uncertainly  it seemed, to be anointed and crowned by the (returned?) prophet Elijah, as Son of David,  King of Kings, Lord of Lords and Son of a God who insists the world should acknowledge him. A cardinal of a masonic Catholic church has endorsed him as Israel’s and the world’s true Messiah.  Though obviously Ra-El is not this person nor the  Egyptian sun god Ra, nor the prophecied Antichrist either (the latter would have be more mesmerizing and seductive according to every dream of him reported), I did say in the Kaviensky article that the  pattern for Purim was somehow off and had a strange Christ/Antichrist savour.

So I wasn’t exactly wrong about that! And I must admit it’s interesting that Ra-El has his natal Pluto on the degree of Jesus’s sun, while his Jupiter is on the crucial Uranus, Regulus, Achristou conjunction of  the late Jeane Dixon’s Antichrist. But that need only mean there is a connection of themes, someone claiming to be the  Messiah and being thought by some to be the Antichrist.

Regardless of such festive season distractions, there are rabbis expecting some Messiah for Passover.  It is anyway  set to be a very special occasion this year because the Sanhedrin has declared its priests will perform a televised Passover sacrifice near to the Temple Mount. They will do so on the altar dedicated last December at Hannukah for use in the anticipated third temple. Clearly some leaders do anticipate a soon Messiah even though it won’t be Ra-El!

There are even people who have decided it’s Trump who is a, or the, Messiah (because he’s fulfilling a Cyrus-like role and could see a third temple built if his peace plan in the wake of Israel’s elections proves satisfactory). There are also fringe Christians who have decided Trump is not messianic but the Antichrist – previously there were, and still are, some Americans holding out for Obama as same! Others more numerous but not less radical, believe that between anticipated messiahs and Christs in the style of Ra-el, events are pointing to the near onset of the Tribulation (which if so would have to produce an Antichrist figure). Things are certainly hotting up in Jerusalem. Just how things are changing, events speeding up and people getting  impatient for the temple to be built and really soon can be gauged by this news article out only today. shorturl.at/fsLRS

There are regions into which astrology might be wiser not to stray, but for those who want something with a frisson, something can be conceded to the radicals. With shocking, revolutionary Uranus now entered stability and economics sign Taurus and painful wounded healer Chiron gone into aggressive Aries, both of them in March and staying for seven years, the duration of the Tribulation, this among other things would support the idea of major crises due before too long. There could be life-changing, painful crises that some might well call the Tribulation or its precursor.

RABBI KANIEVSKY’S MESSIANIC PURIM 2019

RABBI KANIEVSKY’S MESSIANIC 2019 PURIM  
(this article has been slightly amended and added to 28/2/19

Outright prophecy is rare, a gift of the few. What is more possible is to highlight times that potentially mark crises and turning points for people and nations. So I shall consider the intriguing question: has Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, one of Israel’s leading mystical rabbis, likely seen something for the Feast of Purim (21st March, beginning evening of 20th)  which is also the spring Equinox (20th March)  https://goo.gl/8JxFUT

I  certainly note something peculiar that could be relevant to this strange forecast.

The story is going around in Israel that an Orthodox youth who asked the rabbi about registering for citizenship in order to vote in this year’s elections, was told he needn’t bother as the Messiah would be here by the elections (April 9th).  The Messiah even “began” this last Sunday 20th Jan (i.e  in the shadow of the long  super moon, blood moon eclipse to which both Jews and Christians have attached much if different significance). The Messiah will “appear” at Purim  21 March) and “finish” (in apparently the sense of more fully appear or be established) at the elections (April 9th).

This may not sound like the most likely of scenarios, and it’s not as though modern Israel hasn’t already had a few messianic forecasts, albeit a bit more generalized than this date- precise one that haven’t delivered. (Being less date sensitive it was easier to suggest people hadn’t sufficiently prepared themselves to deserve the advent!)

There is nonetheless at least some reason to imagine something might happen and be behind this latest forecast….and not just because 20/21 March is celestially a bit unusual in its own right. It happens that the equinox (0 Aries, a world point for astrology) corresponds this year near to the time of an opposing full moon at 0.09 Libra, itself the third and last full moon in a sequence of Super Moons (when the moon is at perigee-nearest to earth, largest and brightest) that began with the 21st Jan eclipse.

In the data I have for Christ’s birth (see below) the O.O9 Libra Purim full moon is falling of all things this year at the feast of Esther conjunct asteroid Esther at 0.19 Libra –  albeit for some Christians Esther is seen not simply as historical but an allegory of the Church/Bride and her preparation which introduces all sorts of issues I won’t go into in this article.

Whatever pattern is shown at an equinox is important for coming months, and at almost any full moon people are het up, and perhaps at March’s some really will be.

A PECULIAR LINE-UP OF ASSOCIATIONS

Here’s what strikes me about the 20/ 21st and which in light of things pointed out in my recent article, Forecasting and Interpreting 2019  https://wp.me/p4kNWg-kJ   could be significant. Mercury is the fastest moving planet, but whether read for the Equinox or the full moon, for Greenwich or Jerusalem, Mercury will be apparent retrograde in the later minutes of 18 Pisces while  the following planets are at:

Venus             23 Aquarius
Mars                23  Taurus  (degree of Israel’s sun)
Jupiter           23  Sagittarius
Saturn           19  Capricorn

This won’t signify much to those who aren’t aware as I am of certain Christ/Antichrist potentials here that can’t be entirely overlooked.

I have long insisted that, radically developing the D’Occhieppo/Hughes astronomical thesis regarding the Bethlehem Star, I possess the true data for Christ’s birth and that they work to this day for Jesus events. As in the above mentioned article with  link, I pointed out how, once again, late last year the chart was working on cue, but how that this time I had also expected something to happen around last December’s so-called Christmas comet (46 P Wirtanen).

I couldn’t imagine quite what this might be, but as said in the article, I seemed to finish with the answer and rather dramatically (see article’s sub-section “Things  of 2018 but affecting 2019 and touching on an endings theme). I had originally been especially struck by the way the position of Mars at the comet’s brightest was close, to nearly minutes of a degree, to the position of the Bethlehem Star at Christ’s birth – natally this star was Jupiter at 19.23 of Pisces and in conjunction with Saturn at 18.35 of Pisces, itself the sign of the era the birth may be said to have introduced.

Although some misguided Christians who disapprove and don’t understand astrology are determined to have Christ born under a super fortunate Jupiter/Venus aspect, in fact many things, including the restrictions upon Jesus, the frequent opposition he encountered and his messianic sufferings, are necessarily indicated instead by restrictive Saturn conjunct Jupiter and opposite  his identity giving Sun…..

……With all this in mind,  I note that at the Equinox on the 20th  March and full moon on the 21st, Mercury (any news) at 18 Pisces  is conjunct Jesus’ natal Saturn of the era  conjuction. Also strong in its own sign, Capricorn, Saturn at 19 degrees makes an aspect to Jesus’ natal Jupiter (the Bethlehem Star).

A POTENT COINCIDENCE?

That may or may not be just coincidence, but here’s more. On the same day Venus at 23 Aquarius is degree conjunct and Mars in Taurus  degree exact in aspect (tension square) and  Jupiter exact opportunity sextile the 23 Aquarius moon at the birth of “the Child from the East”, the false prophet, the Antichrist according to the late Catholic seeress, Jeane Dixon. She alleged to have been granted vision of his birth back in the Middle East in 1962.

Mars conjunct 23 Taurus at Purim means it is conjunct modern Israel’s foundational sun at 23 Taurus.  At this degree the natal sun also happens to be natally  semi-sextile, a meetings aspect, to an asteroid Achristou  that  I have found over the years to have some relation to people on the dark side like the Beast himself, Aleister Crowley.  This is consequently a hint that at some point in its history there might be an occasion when Israel would have dealings with a false Messiah  figure and in relation to war and peace issues because Achristou is in the national sixth sector or armies and in bellicose Aries.

[It must however be stressed in parenthesis that strictly speaking , religious Jews expect two rather than one messiah, the more human “son of Joseph”, political figure and then a “son of David”, more regal  and priestly. Probably it is the Joseph Messiah that the Rabbi has in mind, especially as someone to appear before the elections, hence it’s the more Davidic figure who might seem more akin to Christianity’s anti-Messiah if and when he appeared]. The Joseph Messiah is set to die like any other mortal. In Christian theology Jesus, at any rate through his compassion and death fulfilled a Joseph type role, his second coming is understood to fulfil the more Davidic, millennial kingdom role].

That the period between Purim and Passover could well spring a few surprises on Israel is suggested by the fact shocks and surprises and novelty-bringing Uranus has entered a sign of no affinity where it could well upset many things, beginning 6th March.  Uranus will be there till mid 2026 ….. by which time perhaps Israel and nothing will be the same again. Suffering wounded healer, Chiron, will be in aggressive Aries around the same period (I can see some Christians immediately saying, they’re there the length of the Tribulation) . As Israel’s rising degree is 0 degrees Scorpio, this means its partnerships and open enemies, legal affairs ( treaties/covenants) point  in Taurus is to be transited in  March and its 3 degree Masi (Messiah asteroid) at 3 Taurus is conjuncted in May.

All this could add up to something if and when so many are anticipating major change in the religious sphere and even legal/political sphere too (Uranus across 2/3 Taurus could be involved with the peace plan.

While obviously Dixon could have been wrong about her figure of vision, it would be hard to imagine a more suggestive birth pattern  for him, especially when the name and place asteroids are added. And under a series of eclipses of the last two years I would even have expected this person, if he existed, to have already appeared, at very least to have considerably extended his range of influence in some circles. But perhaps finally 2019 is the time.

Personally, I would have thought around mid year and with the solar eclipse in Cancer (the person’s ascendant ) might have been more suitable for a (by now almost belated) full appearance of a Messianic claimant rather than the rabbi’s April elections time; but even for that time it can be conceded the April new moon (5th April and helping define the month from then) makes fortunate opportunity sextile to the sun of the figure of Dixon’s vision. This person might just make some strides then.

However, we have to consider that anything to do with Prime Minister Netanyahu is also important. Years ago the celebrated Rabbi Schneerson of the Chabad Lubavitcher movement, himself thought by some to be the Messiah, hoped and virtually forecast that Netanyahu would be handing the keys of Israel over to the Messiah in the wake of a long rule over Israel such as he has enjoyed. But the more immediate question is whether Netanyahu can even win the April election and could be free to give anything to anyone at all…plus how much anyone anywhere this year will be able to discern truth from false hood!

The mere fact that Jupiter this year  is at its strongest  in in its natural sign, Sagittarius, reflective of strong hopes and beliefs, but that it’s also periodically in affliction aspect to Neptune strong in its own sign Pisces, is harbinger of a great potential for deceptions, false hopes and delusions..

NETANYAHU’S CRUCIAL ELECTION TEST

The election of 9th April is preceded on the 5th by a lunation at 15 Aries. This means it conjuncts the PM’s fated nodal axis at 16 Aries/Libra. The fact that the always more difficult south nodes natally conjuncts his Neptune, reflects that Bibi is surrounded by scandals at the same time as he is also associated with messianic national hopes and dreams. This is  because, positively, Neptune is charity, the highest ideals, dreams and visions, and to the extent any Messiah is a “dream of the ages”  the Messiah is Neptune.  Negatively, however, Neptune can be surrounded by scandal, lies, gossip and addictions.

Because at the time of April’s lunation prior to the election restrictive Saturn is conjunct the PM’s natal moon, the picture is not promising, even depressing and frustrating. But since Saturn is departing from conjunction with the natal moon, and Jupiter will be degree exact semi-sextile his natal Jupiter, it’s all very touch-and-go but possible he could still scrape through and then have struggles forming a new government. No doubt those who look forward to a Trump Peace Plan, a third temple, a Messiah, will hope he comes through, but his situation  is all part of the crises, marked tensions and cliffhangers of this year.
