The Encircling of the Beehive Conjunctions

On August 18, 2014 Jupiter and Venus came within 0.3 degrees of each other in the constellation of Cancer. This author witnessed the event without being aware that it was going to occur. Sometimes getting up and out of the house early has its payoffs. Just before the sun came up, the planets were close to the horizon and it took a double take to ensure that it was not an oncoming plane. Being attuned recently to the Jupiter-Venus conjunction of 2016 meant it was time to look and see if there could possibly be a tie into the prophetic scenario.

The previous study of a Jupiter-Venus conjunction was centered on August 27, 2016. This coming conjunction will have a rare separation of just 0.06 degrees. It was found that it will occur 360 days before the total solar eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017. The day count from last week’s conjunction until the August 27, 2016 conjunction will be 740 days. Therefore, the day count from August 18, 2014 until the solar eclipse in Leo is exactly 1100 days. It will then be another 30 days until the sign of the Great Pyramid and then one more day until the Feast of Trumpets 2017. That brings the count to 1131 days, which may seem like an obscure number, or rather–maybe not.

1131 days was curious since it was similar to another number used before with the ratio of pi (1113 divided by pi equals the length of the Lunar Year). It was found that 1131 days divided by pi (3.141592654) is equal to 360 (360.0084813). Not only is 360 the length of the year found in Bible prophecy, but it was also the time between  the close conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in 2016 and the total solar eclipse in Leo in 2017. The significance of these signs was established earlier in a previous article. The Cancer sign of 2014 numerically ties into the other signs and the Feast of Trumpets 2017 by pi. Was there any other significance to the conjunction of 2014?

This conjunction occurred right next to the star formation known today as the Beehive. It is a mass of stars that makes sense of the name, but it was given other

names in ancient times. It was called Praesepe, which means a multitude, offspring. In ancient Egypt, Cancer was known as Scarabeus., which  was the sacred beetle that depicted the coming resurrection. It was also called Klaria, which meant the cattle folds. In the Arabic it was Al Sarian, which meant the one who holds or binds. The Syriac Sartano meant the same. The Greek for Cancer was Karkinos, which meant holding or encircling. The Latin Cancer means the same as the Greek.

The stars of Cancer also bear the overall message of the constellation. There are 83 stars in Cancer. The brightest star Tegmine means holding.  The star Acubene means sheltering or hiding place.  The star Ma'alaph meaning assembled thousands. The star Al Himarein meaning the kids or lambs.  The meaning of the constellation and its stars has thus been stated by E.W. Bullinger as Messiah’s redeemed possession held fast.  Therefore, the picture of Cancer is Messiah’s redeemed who are resurrected and then protected depicting a still future event–the Rapture.

With Cancer having 83 stars it seems striking that Psalm 83 also speaks of the hidden ones who are now protected before the war to destroy Israel begins at the onset of the Day of the Lord. In that Psalm the enemies of Israel have also plotted against those who have been delivered to safety via the resurrection. This would seem to be a clue that all is not well before the Rapture. Indeed we are witnessing that very thing escalate today and this should not be a surprise, if we are just a few years away from that event.

Could it be then that the planets that represent the Messiah (Jupiter) and His glory (Venus, the morning star) gathered at the promise of our resurrection to protection (Cancer) signaled the actual coming Rapture in a mere 1,131 days or pi times the prophetic year of 360 days? That the most significant conjunction of the same planets comes 360 days before a total solar eclipse at the start of the Season of Repentance is also beyond coincidence. It would be interesting to see when such an alignment would ever occur again. Even within this final generation, it is probably impossible. If God will show us signs in the heavens, and He has, then with these, we should take note and a moment of pause.

The Next Beehive Conjunction

November 8, 2014 portion

Purely by “chance”, another conjunction was found among the Beehive of Cancer.  On July 17, 2016, 40 days before the very near conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on August 27, 2016, comes this conjunction of Mercury and Venus in the constellation of Cancer.  Forty days is interesting enough, but this also means that the prior conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in Cancer on August 18, 2014 was exactly 700 days earlier. 700 days was also found to exist between the October 25, 2015 conjunction of Venus and Jupiter and the apparent fulfillment of the Revelation 12 sign on September 23-25, 2017.  This also means that this conjunction on July 17, 2016 is also 400 days before the solar eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017. It seems apparent then that this conjunction in the Beehive is  important in the countdown to 2017.

One fascinating aspect of the previous conjunction of Jupiter and Venus on August 18, 2014 was that it came 1131 days before the Feast of Trumpets 2017. That number divided by pi equals 360 days which not only is a certain unit of time used in the Bible, but also that the close conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on August 27, 2016 will come 360 days before the total solar eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017.  It also must be remembered that another pi number was found to have occurred before the Feast of Trumpets 2017. 814 days before that feast there is a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on July 1, 2015. Those number of days multiplied by pi are equal to 7 solar years of 2,556 days. The key here is that pi was found in two calculations. And now with this second Beehive conjunction discovery, a third use of pi unfolds.

The Beehive conjunction on July 17, 2016 completes a 700 day count from the Beehive conjunction of August 18, 2014.  That first conjunction in the Beehive also comes 1100 days before the total solar eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017. The numbers of 700 and 1100 form a half pi ratio. Pi is often represented as 22/7  in fractional form. Therefore, 2 x 1100/700 is also equal to pi. If day counts of 1100, 700, and 400 were not enough, now another similar ratio of a circle of pi is involved. Are these “coincidences” then as easy as pi?

However, there is always more pi in this case. All of the day counts in these calculations of pi are inclusive day counts–that is to count the start and end days. Of the day counts listed above, the period of 400 days remains unchecked. By inclusive count, it is actually 401 days from the second Beehive conjunction until the total solar eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017. If we take 401 days and multiply it by pi, we will find that it equals 1,260 days. Of course, 1,260 is the portion of each half of the seven year Tribulation, but it was also the number of days from the first eclipse of the current tetrad (April 15, 2014) until the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 sign on September 23-25, 2017. The inclusive count of 1,260 days ends at September 25th.

The math and astronomy involved are one thing, but when these things also line up with significant locations such as the Beehive in Cancer, it is another. These Beehive signs point to the gathering of thousands upon thousands to the sheltering place–the rooms (mansions) that have been prepared for us. Will we be protected on the day the ratio of the circle or encircling (the Greek meaning of Cancer) points us towards–that being the Feast of Trumpets 2017?  That all depends on whether we have believed and accepted the gift of God, which is salvation through Jesus the Messiah.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”   –John 3:16-17

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”   –John 14:1-6

Now that is a lot of pi!
After first witnessing the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus next to the Beehive on August 18, 2014 and discovering its importance, it was surprising to find that there was another conjunction coming between Venus and Mercury at the Beehive in 2016.  The first discovery remains intact below with the newly found conjunction of Venus and Mercury then added at the end.  Initially the day counts alone were provocative, but to find the ratio tied to pi again opened the door to find even more pi. This is fascinating since the meaning of Cancer is “to encircle” as in protection for the redeemed. Pi is also a ratio of the circle. How appropriate then is it that these signs in Cancer display a connection to the times at hand? That is, a connection to the time we as the Church will be encircled and sheltered from the coming judgment of the world.
