The Star Of David

Very few people know this, but the ancient Hebrew Prophets were the greatest Astrologers of their time. They believed that God would give them signs to help them know ahead of time whenever something truly important was about to happen. The signs that God would give them were the ways the planets aligned in the sky. Some alignments of the planets were signs that good things were about to happen. While some other different types of alignments of planets were viewed to be signs that troublesome things were about to occur. The Hebrew Prophets formulated a brilliant way of distinguishing the good signs from the bad ones. Amazingly, they were so right that their methods still work today. The techniques they used were based on what Magi Astrology now calls PLANETARY GEOMETRY.



Planetary Geometry is the lines, shape, or pattern that is formed when lines are drawn to connect the positions of the planets in the sky. The most famous example of Planetary Geometry is that of the Star of David. The Hebrew Prophets believed that when their great king David was born, the planets were aligned to form the special symmetrical shape like the one in the above chart. To the Hebrew Prophets, that alignment of planets was God's sign that something historically great was about to happen and they believed that a great king was going to be born to the Hebrews. That special symmetrical alignment of planets is now the symbol known as the Star of David. (An indication that this symbol was astrologically derived is the fact they still call it the "star" of David.)

As you can easily see from the above figure, the Star of David has two symmetrical triangles and can be formed in the sky by six planets. Besides being an example of a Star of David, the above drawing is also an example of an astrological chart that is drawn to show the actual positions of the planets relative to each other. This type of astrological chart is designed to be a map of the sky. Astrologers invented this way of drawing such a map about 4000 years ago. In such a chart (map) the circle has 360 degrees and it represents the sky. The sky (circle) is divided into 12 signs, with each sign encompassing 30 degrees. As the planets move across the sky, their positions are marked along the circumference of the circle. Astrologers created different symbols to represent each planet and constellation and drew the symbols around the circumference of the circle. They also added the actual number for the degrees of the positions of the planets.


The reason astrologers designed the above chart in this way is so that they could easily tell from looking at the chart whether or not any planets made Magical Angles or Turbulent Angles. A Magical Angle is formed whenever two planets were aligned in the sky such that the pair creates one side of one of the triangles that form the Star of David. This means that whenever two planets are about 120 degrees apart in the sky, the planets make a Magical Angle and the Hebrew Prophets regarded this special angle of alignment of two planets as being a sign of something powerful.

How right they were! Such alignments are very powerful and this fact is a very useful part of our astrological knowledge. In fact, we can use Magical Angles to help us understand why two people fall in love.

"We are told in Genesis that God put the stars in the heavens for signs, and these signs convey a message. The theory we are presenting is that God revealed that message to Adam and to his sons and grandsons and that message has gone into all of the civilizations of the world and has been passed down through the centuries...

"According to Arabic tradition, the signs came from Seth and Enoch. This tradition is interesting since it links these signs to the grandson of Adam and says that Enoch and his father Seth (both men of faith) were the founders of this ancient understanding of the heavens."

Ecclesiastes is Solomon's praise of, and acceptance of, God-given
Astrological cycles in poetry and lyrical prose. Note, Ecc. 3:1 & 15 "For
everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: ..."
& " Whatever is has been already, and whatever is to come has been already,
and God summons each event back in its turn." Solomon, in the wisdom the
Lord gave him, observes (Ecc. 9:11) "Again I saw that under the sun the race
is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor
riches to the intelligent, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance
happen to all." The New English Bible translates the last phrase as "time
and chance govern all." The study of the differing qualities and
characteristics in moments and periods of time, and their appropriateness for
different individuals and endeavors, is the essence of Astrology.

God sets "a time for war, and a time for peace." See Judges 4:14, And
Deborah said to Barak "Up! For this is the day in which the Lord has given
Sisera into your hand. Does not the Lord go out before you?" Later (5:20)
she and Barak sing "From Heaven fought the stars, from their courses they
fought against Sisera." She couldn't be referring to anything but Astrology.
God sets the times; Astrologers and Prophets read the clock, call the hour,
and sound the alarm.

Daniel was chief among the astrologers and other forecasters, in Babylon. He
was one of them by virtue of education, training, and association; he was the
best of them by virtue of his spirituality and the Lord's blessings. If the
other 'wise men' were practicing abominable arts would Daniel have asked that
they not be killed (Dan. 2:18,24)? Would he still be blessed and gifted if
he were doing so?

Any careful, responsible, reading of Isaiah (47:13-15) reveals he was
condemning the wickedness of Babylon, and predicting its destruction, in
spite of the greatness of its astrology, rather than because of it. No art,
trade, or philosophy is an alibi for wickedness; none is a shield from divine
retribution. But believing in, or practicing, astrology does not call for
condemnation. We're all doing God's work in our own way. We commend your
work. Please respect ours. Astrologers are not your adversary.

For an example of God's declaration of authorship of astrology: The Lord
speaks to Job out of the whirlwind (Job 38:12,13 New English), "In all your
life have you ever called up the dawn or shown the morning its place? Have
you taught it to grasp the fringes of the earth and shake the Dog-star from
its place;" The Dog-star, Sirius, was Sopdet to the Egyptians; its heliacal
rising was the cornerstone of their Astro-calendar signaling the eminent
flooding of the Nile.

God continues in verses 31-33, "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades or
loose Orion's belt? Can you bring out the signs of the zodiac" (the
Mazzaroth) "in their season or guide Aldebaran and its train?" (Aldebaran in
the brightest star in Taurus, the Bull that pulls or leads the zodiac across
the sky.) "Do you proclaim the rules that govern the heavens, or determine
the laws of nature on earth?" The RSV reads "Do you know the ordinances of
the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth?"
