The significance of the Jupiter and Venus Conjunction on August 18, 2014 and others

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?


August 24, 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 significance of the Jupiter and Venus Conjunction on July 1, 2015

August 29, 2014

The next conjunction of Jupiter and Venus is slated for July 1, 2015. This conjunction will be at 0.3 degrees of separation like the last one 317 days previously on August 18, 2014. This conjunction will be seen in the evening after sunset in the constellation of Leo. At first there seemed no obvious day counts of significance. However, a key factor was the use of pi in the previous conjunction.

The day count from the conjunction of July 1, 2015 will be 814 days until the Feast of Trumpets 2017. In the previous conjunction, this end date of the Feast of Trumpets 2017 was also significant from the time of that conjunction. What was the possible significance of 814 days from July 1, 2015? 814 divided by pi equals 259 which produces no matches. 814 times pi equals 2,557, which also might seem inconclusive. However, 2,557 day is the length of seven solar years. Of course seven years is the length of the upcoming Tribulation that essentially begins with the Rapture. That is essentially, since the 70th Week of Daniel is to be 2,520 days, which looks to begin two months after the Rapture.

It must be said how interesting that in both conjunctions and calculations that different years are used. First was the prophetic year of 360 days and then here there are seven solar years of 365.2422 days.  It should be fairly straightforward that these calculations are no accident or coincidence. It is by design. It may also be fitting that we then have one year and then seven since we are counting down to the year 2017.  But clearly, two conjunctions involving both uses of a year and pi narrowing in on the Feast of Trumpets 2017 cannot be overlooked or dismissed as coincidental. With God, all things are possible.  

The significance of the Jupiter and Venus Conjunction on October 25, 2015

With the findings of the last two conjunctions, it seemed best to press on with any others between now and 2017. Technically, there is a conjunction between Venus and Jupiter on August 4, 2015, but it has a very large separation and did not make some lists of coming conjunctions. More on that in a bit. However, on October 25, 2015 there is another conjunction with one degree of separation in the hind section of Leo with Mars nearby. Was there anything that seemed significant with this conjunction?

If we count the days from this conjunction, it will be found that 666 days later is the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 in Leo. Continuing the count on towards the Fall Feasts of the Lord, it will then be 700 days until September 23, 2017, which is the day of the Sign of Revelation 12! Two periods of day counts that are not arbitrary then coincide with other signs of importance.

We must then go back to the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus that seems too far apart to be significant on August 4, 2015. If we run the time through the star programs a much closer grouping occurs between Mercury, Jupiter, and Regulus on August 7, 2015. This occurs 777 days before the Feast of Trumpets 2017, which is the first day of the seventh Hebrew month. This is interesting since from the end of the Lebanon War of 2006 (August 14, 2006) it was also 777 days until the Stock Market drop of 777 points on September 29, 2008–just before the Feast of Trumpets or on them at the time, if one was in Jerusalem. That is just some more food for thought.

Here then is the counts of 666 and 777 days. Other such numbers have appeared in the other discoveries with regards to the the other conjunctions or blood moons. For example, there is also 444 and 888 days. Then there is 3,333 days.  The 3,333 days repeats and also we have seen 333, 666, and 6,666 days. Some involve the same dates but use the different counts listed here. It is nothing short of amazing and demands all of these things be placed in one comprehensive diagram. To do so would probably lead to other finds and conclusions that help solidify God’s unveiling plan of these last days. It is not an accident.
