Twelve Talk – I

((Part I of II – The Zodiac))

I can’t believe I’m actually writing this.  I’ve wanted to – for about four years now.  But I never actually have done it, or the studying I wanted to do that went along with it.  It was just… daunting, y’know?  And I’m not even sure how this is all going to fit together.  Hang in there with me, hm?  Because this could get interesting.

Well, to begin with, I have long-held that the astronomical zodiac that non-religious people put so much weight behind is actually a distortion of what Yah originally put up in the heavens.  If Yah is the author of all things, and Satan the twister of all Yah’s Truths, then it stands to reason that the ‘zodiac’ is a twist on what Yah originally had set up.  And my first goal was to prove it.  Using Genesis 49… the passage where Jacob bestowed ‘blessings’ and ‘curses’ upon his children.

But first, let’s clarify the cast of characters for my readers who aren’t up on their Biblical patriarchs.  For those of you who don’t know who I’m talking about, the Bible hero Abraham had sons named Isaac and Ishmael – Ishmael being a bastard child born of a servant and not to inherit the birthright/blessing from the father.  But Yahweh promised Abraham that his WIFE would bear the child that would bring God’s people into existence – NOT Ishmael.  Hence, Isaac is the ‘seed’ that grew into the Jewish nation, and Ishmael is the ‘seed’ of Abraham that became the Muslim nation.  ((And as Paul Harvey would say, now you know the rest of the story.))  Anyhow, taking it further, Isaac had twins – Jacob and Esau.  Jacob is the one Yah chose to continue the line of the Chosen People, even though he was the younger of the two.  Some crazy shit went down (you can read it yourself) and Jacob got the blessing/birthright instead of Esau.  Jacob continued the growth of the Jewish nation, and Esau took off and his kids became the other peoples of the area, including (but not limited to) the Palestinians.  And since I’m very about graphs, here’s the breakdown:

And then Jacob went on and had twelve sons – which became the twelve tribes of Israel.

Reuben – Simeon – Levi – Judah – Zebulun – Issachar
Dan – Gad – Naphalti – Asher – Joseph – Benjamin

So now you’ve got the background in a nutshell.  So let’s get to this.  In Genesis 49, Jacob is on his death bed.  He calls his twelve sons around him and bestows some curses/blessings on them.  Each son is addressed.  And remember, Yahweh told Abraham WAYYYY back when that this was all in the plan from the beginning, that there would be a chosen people.  And twelve is Yah’s number.  ((Well, He has a few – 3, 7, 12, 40, and 144,000.))  But twelve is His favorite, with seven a close second.  So whaddya know, we have twelve sons and twelve major signs in the heavens.  And twelve blessings/curses… which actually turn out to be prophecies, as well.  Very kewl stuff.  Take a look at this.

***************  REUBEN  ***************

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch. (Gen. 49:3-4)

Jacob’s firstborn, Rueben, had sex with one of his father’s concubine.  Which by the way was the reason he didn’t recieve the birthright/blessing (‘shall not excel’).  That kind of effects your status in the family, when you try to usurp your father the patriarch by sleeping with one of his women.  Rueben was changed to Aquarius the water bearer because of his association with water.

***********  SIMEON & LEVI  ***********

Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall. Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel. . (Gen. 49:5-7)

 Simeon is Gemini and Levi is Libra as brothers in violence. Both constellations symbolize the number two. The Gemini are brothers and Libra the scale for settling debts.  Also, Jacob says he will divide and scatter the brothers in Israel, which means the two constellations are not in juxtaposition.  Some versions of scripture say they ‘hamstring oxen’ – and whaddya know, but one is next to Taurus and the other is opposite Taurus.

 In ancient mythology, the Gemini twins were warlike heroes who avenged the kidnapping of their sister Helen to Troy. Isn’t it interesting that, millenia before that in Genesis 34, Simeon and Levi avenged their sister Dinah, who was taken and raped by Schecham the son of Hamor the Hivite. Simeon and Levi took revenge by murdering the father, son and all the males of the city. Not content to stop there, they plundered the city.  Which is why they were also skipped over for the birthright/blessing by Jacob.

****************  JUDAH  ****************

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 
Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. Gen. 49:8-12)

Judah’s constellation is Leo the lion. Judah is the tribe from which king David descends.  Jacob associates Judah with lions. A throwback to the ancient Egyptians, a scepter and staff symbolize sovereignty.  Yeshua is called “The Lion of Judah” for a good reason – Judah is the next in line to recieve the blessing/birthright, and this is who recieves it.  The Messiah is born into this chosen tribe of the Jews.

**************** ZEBULUN  ****************

 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon. (Gen. 49:13)

Pisces is Zebulun by its association with the sea. Dwelling in the haven of the sea, fish are brought into ports.

************** ISSACHAR  **************
Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens: And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute. .(Gen. 49:13-15)

Issachar would be Taurus the bull. Asses associate with bulls in the sense that they are both pulling animals, beasts of burden. Personally I think this was a stretch, but I see where they were going with it, and it makes sense.  I’m thinking some astrologist somewhere got a donkey and a cow confused up there.  But that’s just me.

*******************  DAN  *******************
Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD. .(Gen. 49:16-18)

 Dan is now represented by Scorpio. In the sector of Scorpion, there is the constellation Serpens the serpent. A viper that bites the horse’s heels, juxtapositions Scorpio next to Sagittarius, the half man half horse.  Wow, huh?

****************  GAD  ****************
 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.(Gen. 49:19)

Gad rules Sagittarius. “A troop” makes us think of something military. Being an archer, Sagittarius is a warlike constellation

**************** ASHER  ****************
Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties. (Gen. 49:20)

 Asher is Virgo by its association with food. The sun enters Virgo at the end of the growing season. Virgo is pictured with stalks of grains in her hand.  Virgo is also “The Woman” and “The Virgin” – could it also not be said that the ‘royal dainties’ (Strong’s also uses the word ‘delight’) could be the woman bearing the Savior?

**************** NAPHTALI ****************
 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.(Gen. 49:21)

Naphtali rules Aries the lamb. The sun enters Aries at the beginning of spring when fawns and lambs are born.

****************  JOSEPH  ****************
Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.(Gen. 49:22-26)

Here’s what they say about this one:  Joseph rules Cancer. The sun enters Cancer at the height of its ascent when Orion the hunter with its bow can be seen upright. In the zodiac circle, Cancer is opposite Sagittarius, so allegorically they are in opposition. The archers’ attack comes from Sagittarius the archer shooting across the divide from the winter solstice to the summer solstice.

 Orion is not one of the twelve zodiac constellations, but next to the sun, it is the most important constellation in Jewish and Christian mythology. He is the favorite son and the only one who receives God’s blessings.  Starting at Genesis 37, Genesis devotes more space to Joseph than any of the other brothers. Joseph’s brothers didn’t like him, so they left him in a pit to be picked up by a caravan and sold as a slave in Egypt.

*************  BENJAMIN  *************
Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.”(Gen. 49:27)

 Benjamin is seen in Capricorn as a ravenous wolf when Sirius the Dog Star (in legend, the Star of Bethlehem) rises above the horizon in early January.  However, what a ravenous wolf has to do with Capricorn is beyond me, and I wish I knew what the ‘dividing the spoil’ lent itself to.

I have recently seen a site by a ‘chrischun’ who travels teaching about Biblical Astronomy write an article similar to this on his site.  I say ‘chrischun’ because the asshole copied it word for word from the article I got MY information from – which is here.  Except that he figured nobody’d ever find it because it’s a site written by an astrologist who rejected Christianity as a young man… and no good chrischun would go anywhere NEAR that.  So he simply stole it, giving no credit whatever to the source, and slapped his name on it.  I at least added my own touch and graphics and opinions and gave credit where credit was due.  ((Day-am, I hate chrischuns.))  So if you’ve seen this before recently, there’s the skinny on it.

Why look at something that came from an astrology site?  Well, because I believe in Balaam.  Balaam was a pagan priest who was chosen by Yah to deliver a message, because none of the believing prophets were available to Yah.  Likewise, I believe that much of the time today, messages are being delivered by little known believers and – yes, in many cases – pagans, because chrischuns are idiots with their heads up their butts too busy luvving to deliver the Truth to those who need it.  But then, you knew that, right?  I mean, how many churches tell you this stuff?  Mostly it’s just ‘horoscopes are of the devil’ and ‘the zodiac is evil’.  Claim it back – it was Yahweh’s, first!

This is meaty, phenomenal stuff!  The signs in the sky attributed to the Zodiac are actually the signs of the twelve tribes of Israel that Yah set there to declare His promise before even Abraham!  Is that not phenomenal?!  I’m just…  wow.  This is why it’s SOOO important to stand for Truth – because it’s so woven into everything around us – even in places you don’t suspect!

And it goes further than that – if there are 12 tribes with 12 signs, and each ‘zodiac’ has it’s own stone, and each tribe has its own stone on the High Priest’s breastplate (and in the New Heaven in Revelation!)… then do the stones match?  And which stone goes with which tribe?  And is there significance to them?  That is my NEXT post on ‘Twelve Talk’… coming sometime soon.  ((No promises – LoL!!))
