‘I will show wonders in the Heavens above and Signs on the Earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The Sun will be turned to darkness, and the Moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved.’ –Acts 2:20

The purpose of this study is to consider the astronomical alignment of the Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017 as it focuses on the constellation of Leo. The darkening of the Sun over America will be eclipsed by a ‘Black Moon’ on that day. As the American nation awakens to this eclipse, the morning will turn to darkness that many are correlating it to a spiritual darkness no less. It is estimated that over 200 million Americans will be able to witness this ‘Great American Eclipse’ and all of the 350 million Americans will be within 600 miles of the eclipse line of totality. As the sky becomes dark and the stars come out, 5 of the 6 luminaries visible from Earth’s point of view will be seen: 1) Mercury, 2) Venus, 3) Mars, the 4) Sun, 5) Moon and 6) Jupiter.

Oddly enough, the only visible planet not ‘in the picture’ is Saturn. This planet will be ‘stomped-on’ by Ophiuchus’ foot if one considers a spiritual application and typology. As Saturn is associated with Satan, the imagery is striking in that Ophiuchus is depicting the cosmic and constant struggle between the 2 ‘Seeds’, that of Eve’s and of Lucifer’s. Ophiuchus is ‘Jesus’ wrestling with Serpens or the Serpent of Old, Satan that seeks the majesty that Corona Borealis represents, i.e., the Kingdom. As Jesus has fought and won over Lucifer at the Cross of Calvary through His resurrection, it has come at a price. One foot of Ophiuchus is crushing the head of Scorpio, thus the red colored and ‘bleeding’ of the Star Aldebaran. However, the stinger of Scorpio has struck the heel of Ophiuchus that has mortally wounded him in the struggle. This cosmic imagery is what was foretold by YHVH to Adam, Eve and Lucifer in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:15.

Thus as the cosmic array of the storyline depicts the Gospel in the Stars, could solar eclipses also depict or give a message at a particular time and place? Consider the following astronomical patterns also related to the Great American Eclipse. This August 21, 2017 is the last of the total solar eclipses since the 3-2-1 total solar eclipses of 2008-2009-2010 that all occurred on the 1st of Av. It appears to be a countdown and was repeating the emphasis that led-up to the Blood Moon Triad of 2011. This will be the same pattern in that the ‘Great American Eclipse’ is the last total solar eclipse that leads-up to the Blood Moon Triad of 2018. It will also have the Central Bull’s Eye eclipse over Jerusalem as it did nearly 7 years prior in June 2011. The Triads of 2011 and 2018 were bookends to the 2014-15 Tetrad. The question remains, will the coming Triad of Blood Moons be a start of a new timeline, for the USA, for Israel?

Why Israel? The new timeline could coincide with the Jewish year numerical association of 5778 in which ‘8’ signifies new beginnings. Beginning of what? New World Order? World War III? All the above? Is the Creator speaking by way of Sign in the Sun, Moon and Stars as stipulated in Genesis 1 and reiterated by Jesus Christ? Solar eclipses are said to be omens and/or messages for the gentile nations. Perhaps the message of August 2017 is specifically to America and spiritually significant. In what way? The eclipse spans 12 states in the Union and could be associated on a spiritual level with Israel in the following ways. It has been noted by other researchers that as the eclipse starts in America, in Salem, Oregon. Amazing, the eclipse occurs at the same time the Sun is setting on the original Salem, that of Jerusalem, Israel. Thus, the message from the Creator would be that He wishes for ‘Peace’ to be bestowed upon the land.

Interestingly, the sign or signet of Jerusalem is the Boxing Lion and more prophetically that of the Lion of Judah. Ironically, even though it is stipulated that one ‘should pray for the Peace of Jerusalem’, there has been nothing but war over it. However, despite the religious strife, a coming Lion or Leo is one that Jews await, as their Messiah to be. Christian believe He has come. This Messiah was and is Jesus that triumphed over Lucifer, sin and death at the cross in Jerusalem. This eclipse is a prelude to the Revelation 12 Sign that will be 33 days out and starts the Civil New Year and a precursor to the ‘Great Sign’ of Revelation 12. What is amazing is that the astronomical alignment has the Great Pyramid code that points to a ‘Leo’ as the Sphinx. When the Great Pyramids and Sphinx pattern are superimposed on the eclipse, the Christ Angle of 26.3 degrees is configured to the slope of Leo. The planetary alignment is also in approximate phi ratio from Jupiter to Mars with Mercury as the focal point.

Venus              Great Pyramid Khufu
Mars                Khafre
Mercury           Menkaure

What would be so unapparent is that one of the many amazing signatures of the Great Pyramids is that they signal the Christ Angle as if to signal that the Christ is going to be ‘birthed’ or is coming. The alignment of the triple conjunction of Venus-Mars-Mercury are lined-up to the same size in proportion to the Pyramids of Giza. The question that this study and prior one have asked is, which Christ? Amazingly, the eclipse conjunction depicts the configuration of the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx angle of Leo on the Ecliptic. It is a mirror opposite with a nearly 90 degree rotation from the true north alignment from Giza. Does this allude to the ‘Judgment of Egypt’ or an Exodus to come? The following are some conjunctions starting in Leo and culminating with the Great Sign of Revelation 12.

1. Mars conjoins with Star of Leo Regulus    Sep 5
2. Mercury conjoins with Star Regulus          Sep 9
3. Jupiter ‘birthed’ in Virgo’s ‘womb’ area      Sep 9
4. Mercury conjoins with War planet, Mars    Sep 16
5. Moon conjoins with Star of Leo Regulus   Sep 17
6. Venus conjoins with Star of Leo Regulus  Sep 19
7. Revelation 12 astronomical alignment       Sep 23

As noted, the 2024 total solar eclipse crosses America to mark its line near Cedar Lake where the ’X’ marks the spot will be centered. This point will be geographically approximately 6.66 miles to Carbondale. In addition, interesting is that the days between the 2 crossing eclipses are 2423 days or 666% of a common year based on 360 day/year. As the ‘Great American Eclipse’ will last just under 3 minutes it will traverse the USA from ‘sea to shining sea’ in the ‘heart’ of the nation in conjunction with the royal constellation of Leo. Interestingly the eclipse will be conjoined at the ‘King Star’ of Regulus, the ‘Heart of Leo’ or lion-hearted. Is the Great American Eclipse occurring in the ‘Heart of Leo’ signaling that the spiritual condition of the heart of the nation’s what the Creator is trying to get its attention about? However, in writing this study, one could not get out of one’s head the song from the 80’s that resonated with the theme of this study; about falling apart, a call to ‘turn around’ or repent and going totally dark due to a …‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’. It is a song sung by Bonnie Tyler released in 1983.

‘Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
And there's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart.’

There is now however, an alarming divide that has been thrust as a dagger into the heart of America. The Dream of America has become a nightmare for far too many in the land of promise. It is too depressing to reiterate the staggering statistics of those in poverty, addicted, in debt, questioning gender and redefining marriage and turning away from YHVH. Many End Time Watchers have likened this time and place of the Great Eclipse to Nineveh and the cycle of 40 days of repentance pronounced by Jonah, etc. Others are mocking and dismissing this ‘sign’ as a hoax and false teaching especially conjoined with the Great Sign of Revelation 12 that occurs 33 days later. The contention is even worse among those professing to be of faith. The point is that not many world empires have survived 250-350 years when they get to a point where the USA is now morally. Most have fallen due to their decadence, pride and strife.

One such empire was like Nineveh but surprisingly, that empire repented as a nation. Jesus even admonished Israel for their lack of faith and desire to repent in comparison. He recounted the ministry of Jonah to the Ninevites and pronounced to the Jews saying, ‘The men of Nineveh will stand at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now One greater than Jonah is here.’ Will the Ninevites likewise rise up on Judgment Day and condemn the USA if it does not repent? Could they say something like the following? ‘You Americans had the ‘Light of the Gospel’ since the Pilgrims and the land was once a beacon for those believing in the Bible. YHVH gave you a national sign for all the people to gather and see together in a moment, but you failed to discern spiritually the warning because you have become spiritually blind and have turned your back on the Covenant of your Founding Fathers.’

What is the message of the Sign? Consider that Mars is the ‘Planet of War’ as Mercury is the ‘Messenger of the god’ that is connected or conjoined astronomically with the ‘Heart of the Lion’ in Leo. Thus, is the Creator spelling-out that ‘the message (Mercury) for America is war (Mars)? Those that have followed and studied the ‘Signs’ in the Heavens would see this as a harbinger of judgment as the peculiarities associated with this one heavenly sign is replete with ‘coincidences’ of division and judgment. The triple conjunction of Mars-Eclipse-Mercury at Regulus speaks of conflict and war to come. It may not be at that precise time and date that war will come to the American heartland but could be months or even years. Many scoff and say that it is all ‘superstitions astrology’ and how could it possibly be concerning the USA? Perhaps it could be nothing as the USA has been in constant war and existed off a war economy anyway.

True, yet the question remains. It is valid to ask and contrast. Does this alignment of the eclipse with Mars in the façade of Leo gesture that war will come to the USA? The contrast is the King Star Regulus where the Great America Eclipse occurs astronomically in Leo. The King Constellation having the King Star speaks of royalty, or majesty that the Creator bestowed on Humanity with the first 2 humans created in the Garden of Eden, that of Adam and Eve. The Creator, YHVH bestowed on them royalty and dominion to rule over all of Creation. Humanity has been bestowed a blessing as no other created beings have in that humans are made in the ‘likeness and image’ of YHVH. The Creator has also dealt such blessings upon nations.

America, as an ideal and core or heart of the nation aspired to a government never before established since recorded time. America has been blessed to be the ‘King’ among the nations in these Last Days. For example, America’s Constitution, although not perfectly inspired to achieve a ‘more perfect’ union’, is unequal in all of human history. Sadly, it has now been co- opted from within by elements that precisely have been working to cause its judgment. Although the kings and rulers of a nation may have been corrupt like those of Israel and Judah for example, the Prophets of old at times would rally the People of YHVH to repent, nonetheless as they would ‘turn the hearts back to their fathers’. Will the Millennials, the youth of America for example rise and repent and inspire the ‘fathers’ to turn this nation from becoming the likes of Babylon?

It is not too late for America as a nation to turn back to the Creator and its moral and just laws and be that beacon of light to the nations. Its people can be like King Hezekiah who turned the curse of YHVH upon the land to a blessing by removing the idols, the ‘Baphomets’ that have sprung up from the land. Hezekiah instilled national revival and opened the closed door of YHVH’s Temple that was to be a place of ‘prayer for all the nations’. When issues and problems arose, the King could go before the Presence of the LORD and pray and YHVH promised to listen as He did when evil arose of the likes of Senna-Cherib from Nineveh that came against YHVH’s People, Temple and land. Will Americans open all the closed doors of all the churches that have shut down? Yes, a building is not the ‘Church’ but that at the core of the matter is the heart condition. Sadly the ‘prophets’ of America, the Ministers and Pastors are not taking heed of the ‘Sign’ as King Hezekiah did. This King of Judah was given such an ‘astronomical sign’ and he took heed, repented and was healed because of it. May American not end up like Judah in the book of Jeremiah where she refused to be healed in Jeremiah 12:19-20.

‘Why has my pain been perpetual and my wound incurable, refusing to be healed? Will you indeed be to me like a deceptive stream with water that is unreliable? Therefore, thus says the LORD, If you return, then I will restore you-- Before Me you will stand; and if you extract the precious from the worthless, you will become My spokesman. They for their part may turn to you, but as for you, you must not turn to them. Then I will make you to this people A fortified wall of bronze; and though they fight against you, They will not prevail over you; for I am with you to save you and deliver you, declares YHVH.’

Sadly the ‘kings and priests’ from the pulpits in YHVH’s House across American for the most part are condemning not only the Sign but those that would seek to sound the alarm because of the spiritual and Biblically-based discernment of the Sign. Despite the expected contention, the words of America the Beautiful captures the spirit and heart of America, of Americans and what could have been achievable and at times has. The question remains, will she still? Will she turn her heart during this time of darkness, spiritual darkness? 

America the Beautiful
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion’d stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!

America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
