September 23 2017   

Preoccupation with time has interested humanity ever since the first shadows of the sun and moon crossed our path.
  A most unique unique alignment in the skies appeared September 23, 2017.  Part of this section involves the study of the signs and planets, and its discourse comes on the heels of the great American eclipse.  Millions saw one of nature's most awe inspiring sights but perhaps August 21 signaled more then just science news.  
  Not everything in this section will be in full accord with you, and I respect your views.   What was seen with uncanny certainty was the alignment of constellations.  The remainder represents tidbits of history that may or may not amaze you, that may or may not form kernels of knowledge.  


  Is it all a figment of one's imagination?

  It involves figures and numbers.  Question: Do these figures actually appear more than just a series of numerals bantered about?  Would they, do they hold meaning beyond mere novelties of the constellations?

  The total solar eclipse of Aug. 21 demonstrated 2 cool cosmic numerics: 1) The Sun's diameter is exactly 400 times larger than the moon’s, but at the same time, it is also 400 times farther away from the moon hence perfect totality is possible.   2) The initial shadows of totality occurred on the West Coast at 17.16 UT.  1716 is the exact minute of sunset in Israel ( i.e.. 7:16 pm).  Both points mark an entrance to darkness, one for America; and one for Israel.  

  Jesus warned let no man know the day or hour of His coming.  This has been true in the past with many false calls.  Please note, we do not ascribe a date of Jesus’ coming.  

  In the general sense, a huge majority of people are also not interested in talk of signs, no matter what it may point to, yet in the past, a look at what comes as signs has indeed occurred.  Some have been attributed Biblically, like the Star of Bethlehem, others not.  The following will be dispensed as either a curiosity with no real meaning or perhaps, a portent of some sign.  You the reader are free to decide.

  From the Christian perspective, we may be coming to a sign connected to the Bible.  From the Jewish perspective, there exists an 800 year-old prophecy that was translated from German by a Ludwig Schneider (in 2008):  “When the Ottomans conquer Jerusalem, they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees.  Afterwards, Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation—which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”  This prophecy is attributed to Rabbi Judah ben Samuel however, the origin and whereabouts of the original document seems not to exist.  A jubilee year is about 50 years.  Ben Samuel kicked the bucket in 1517, the Turks conquered and held on to Jerusalem till the end of WW I when the British took over circa 1918 and the British occupied Jerusalem under the League of Nations treaty.  The nation of Israel was born in 1948, and in the so-called 9th jubilee year, Jerusalem “came back” into the possession of the Jewish nation; technically it had already “come back” in the 8th jubilee not the 9th (or 1967.)  In Jewish faith, the Hebrew year of 5777 is Elul 2017 (occurred in 2017).  Elul is the 12 month in the Jewish civil year and which is actually the last month of 5777.  5777 in gematria means the year of completion.  Scholars say Elul originates from the Akkadian word for Harvest.  To harvest is to catch, to gather the crops, to reap, or to remove.

  When something is completed then something new is started.

  Does humanity cross a threshold?  Or, did America cross a threshold, with Aug. 21 serving as some marker pointing to the start of a new period, perhaps of darkness?   Would 5777 involve only the U.S. and Israel?  Perhaps, not.

   Are we at the start of some other fulfillment in prophecy, the Christian Bible?   There appeared a unique alignment in the heavens on Sept. 23, 2017 as seen on Earth that was also a marker at the end of 5777, and the commencing of 5778.



When one studies the planets of Sept. 23, 2017 on that date, 3 planets took center stage along with something called Regulus.  Regulus is a Sun, a mighty one much larger than our own Sun, termed a blue star by astronomers.  The way the stars were aligned on Sept. 23 begs one to ask was it more than mere coincidence?  Because it seems pretty similar to Revelation 12:1 from the Holy Bible, passages written by John of Patmos about 2,000 years ago.  Some connected it to the Second Coming of Jesus and others to the end times.  Did it involve signs?   From Luke 21: 25 it is written “And there shall be signs in the Sun, in the moon, and in the stars…”  From Genesis 1, verse 14, way in the beginning:  “And God said: Let there be lights in the expanse of  the heavens, to divide the day and the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.”  So we have 4 important concepts: signs, seasons, days, years. 

  Translation of Genesis from above: we will be given signs from God, which it is said is a form of getting to know what God means or wants us to know, ie. it points to Himself.  The translation of seasons is a tough one to know for in ancient Hebrew the word moedems, is a word which refers to the feasts of the Lord.   Going back to Luke, the Sun, moon and stars can be signs, not necessarily astronomical, but as a pointer from the Heavens of God.  The passage of the lights of heaven are to be as signs given to humanity.  The visible surface of the Sun like disappeared—well, to those in totality and even people watching it on TV, it disappeared, didn’t it?—that is because we saw an eclipse, not just any eclipse but one that was only demonstrated over the United States in a very big, big way.  Did you know that the surface temperature of the Sun is approximately 5,778 kelvin?   Did I state 2017 is 5777?   What is 2018 in the Jewish calendar year?

  To make matters even more peculiar, there is scripture from Matthew that was spoken by Jesus, with a mention of Jonah.  Yes, Jonah of the whale story. 










  However, there is something more to it than a whale and the connection he came out alive thanks to his trust in God.  It involves a generation that practices adultery, and it has to be big time otherwise why make it a point to mention it?   Look at Matthew 16:4:  “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the Sign of Jonah”.  

  What is this Sign of Jonah?  Some scholars say Jesus was speaking about the ancient pharisees.  Others draw a parallel to them but that there will be people who want tons of proof as signs however, they will not be given many.   Matthew quotes Jesus as answering that they will be given but one that stands out amongst that wicked generation of peoples. For the evil generation, whoever they might be, they will receive one.  In a conversely manner, those who love the Messiah will see more than one.  Jonah, it should be remembered, travelled to Nineveh (present-day Mosul).  Historians believe he lived circa 7 centuries before Christ.  It so happens that a great eclipse occurred in 763 B.C. 


This eclipse crossed north of Nineveh on June 15

during the reign of King Ashur-dan III.

  Before Jonah arrived, history saw a series of ill events that struck Nineveh, such as earthquakes, civil disturbances, and war.  Their eclipse of June 15 was one of the most famous solar eclipses of the Ancient World, recorded by eyewitnesses in cuniform tablets, the Assyrian Eponym Canon.  

  Historically, the eclipse is called the Bur-Sagate Eclipse.  That eclipse was one of the signs and omens that caused Nineveh to repent big-time.  The story of the Assyrian Eponym Canon is traced to Sir Henry Rawlinson linguist expert in ancient Persian who engaged in translations during the mid 1800s.  He had no idea that what he studied would one day be used to verify the Sign of Jonah analogy to our present-day era.

  In a certain sense, planets can be thought of as lights from heaven because they reflect light from the Sun and appear as ordinary stars when we see them in the firmament, although they do not twinkle.  They were once known as wondering stars.  Curiously, Luke 21: 7: “And, they asked him (Jesus), saying Master, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when they shall begin to come to pass?”  

  In Revelation 12: verse 1, which I hinted earlier in terms of stellar arrangement, verses 1 and 2 speak of a great sign.  If we look at the imagery of Revelation 12 closely, we can see that it recapitulates an eschatological astronomical phenomena described at the opening of the sixth seal.  We are told that a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the Sun (or according to some translations of a Woman adorned with the Sun), being pursued by a Great Red Dragon who sweeps a third of the stars from the sky. 

  How deep into the Bible should one go?  More on September 23 a little later. 


  About 1500 years before the world’s fastest typesetting machine—which sets type at 1,000 characters per second—is in operation, the Bible, as we now know it, was set in the form we have come to know.
  Thousands of years ago quite a few parts of the Bible were just prophecies, but it was still the Word of God. 
  What if today’s struggles deal with a part of the Bible that is a prophecy and pertinent?

  Saint Augustine describes that not everyone has the same gift of understanding, and that those of us who are less gifted, because we have less intelligence, have lesser obligations. However, the essential obligation is the same for everybody; in other words, we must all believe what the Bible teaches if you are Christian.
  In the Catholic Faith, Saint Thomas Aquinas is held in high esteem. Saint Thomas says that if you know Scripture, you must believe it with divine faith, because God revealed it.
  During Christ’s time, even though the Pharisees claimed to be faithful to the Scriptures, they were guilty of crucifying Christ. Jesus Christ’s arrival was foretold in the Old Testament of the Bible. It was foretold a savior would come. For the Pharisees, Jesus was an “ignorant carpenter.”
  Yet, many facts about Him were predicted, and also about what He would do. Jewish leaders claim to have God for their master. However, our Lord said to them, “If you had God for your Father, then you would recognize Me, because I am the image of the Father. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)

  Using faith and knowledge, we can better comprehend a rare portion of history, the story of Fatima, for in it we have the champion of faith, our Blessed Mother. The whole theme of Fatima is faith and love, in both Jesus Christ and his Most Holy Mother.  Heaven has no time for the baloney idea of superceding Jesus with his mother, internally, externally spiritually.

  Inside the story of Fatima are truth and falsehoods as is read in the Fatima section or found in the ebook itself.  


  Much has transpired since 1917.  Something very odd transpired during the 100th anniversary year of Fatima.


  As long as one can remember, people have been trying to foretell of a future time in history.   Remember Y2k, 2000, 5-5-2000, 2012?   No one likes instability.   No one likes horror stories.  

  And, how many relish the End Times of Revelation or when the Son of God comes or Tribulation?  

continue reading or you may go to Introduction

  We find great mathematical and geometrical studies of famed scholars like Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval, whom I admire, and the wonders of scriptures where, it is said, by the wonders of Egypt would lead to signs of the return of the Lord.  A recent internet link  describes reference points of another day, September 20, 2017 according to readings and reference points found in the Great Pyramaid of Giza.

  The link references the “Signs of the End” and the oracle in stone.  

  For the past 6 years or so Sept. 20 has been in the fray, however.  


  In this discourse, I take the stand on the position that Fatima is in biblical prophecy, and other passages in chapter 12 are relevant.  Moreover, something appeared this September 23, 2017, not Sept. 20,  that was unique and appeared in the skies.

Sept 23, 2017


  If we look at the text concerning the opening of the sixth seal, we find rather similar language, where the stars become swept by the Dragon, and are considered fallen: “When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the Sun became black as sackcloth, the full Moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the Earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit .... (Rev. 6:12-13)
  Moreover, what if the texts contain a hidden era in time?   For a few, it meant the turn of the millennium and related it to the prophecy of the Woman Adorned with the Sun and the casting down of Satan.   I believe the connection to a certain point in time is somehow connected to September 23, 2017— more on that later

  Humanity was given the Bible, but in 1917 a part of the Bible was deposited on the footstep of humanity, not as a private revelation or just for old people, but for all to see and hear.
  How do you know it is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy?  We must look to Sacred Scripture, namely in our examples, Chapter 1, verse 1 of Revelation, also called the Apocalypse, and Chapter 12, verses 1 and 2.
  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto John, to show his servants things which must come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his Angel unto his servant John who wrote the Apocalypse. (Ch 1, verse 1)
“And a great sign was seen in heaven; A woman arrayed with the Sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; and she was with child; and she cried out”.
(Chapter 12, verses 1 and 2)

  Keep in mind, all things connected to Fatima are not to show veneration to the Blessed Mother above God.   That there appears a corollary idea between Fatima and a Prophecy of Pope Leo XIII is one thing, however, I do not think that the millennium is the main thrust or interplay to Revelation 12, the main focus of this report.   What is the vision of Pope Leo?  From when should his 100 year period be calculated from?
 Short PDF on Pope Leo 

Vision of Pope Leo XIII

  In 1899, Pope Leo XIII consecrated the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 11th 1899, as requested by Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart.   And where did that get us?  Unfortunatley, we saw World War I, World War II and the rise of something called Fascism and Communism and a whole litany of leaders connected to Fascism and Communism in which they perpetuated horrific atrocities.
  In 1947, Fr. Domenico Pechenino, a priest who worked at the Vatican during the time of Leo XIII, provided a first-hand account of the events of Leo XIII which I think you would like to read: 

I do not remember the exact year [when Pope Leo had his vision]. One morning the great Pope Leo XIII had celebrated a Mass and, as usual, was attending a Mass of thanksgiving. Suddenly, we saw him raise his head and stare at something above the celebrant’s head. He was staring motionlessly, without batting an eye. His expression was one of horror and awe; the color and look on his face changing rapidly. Something unusual and grave was happening in him. Finally, as though coming to his senses, he lightly but firmly tapped his hand and rose to his feet. He headed for his private office. Then he was asked , “Holy Father, are you not feeling well? Do you need anything?” He answered: “Nothing, nothing.” About half an hour later, he called for the Secretary of the Congregation of Rites and, handing him a sheet of paper, requested that it be printed and sent to all the ordinaries around the world. What was that paper? It was the prayer that we recite with the people at the end of every Mass. It is the plea to Mary and the passionate request to the Prince of the heavenly host, (St. Michael: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle) beseeching God to send Satan back to hell. 
The St. Michael Prayer was instituted by Pope Leo XIII, after his prophetic vision.   It was recited after Low Mass, until Vatican II made changes in 1965 and it “was killed” so to speak and was no more repeated after masses.

The St. Michael Prayer

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness

and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.


St. Louis de Montfort and the dragon

  Dragon?   Did I say Revelation mentions a dragon?

  For some people, in Revelation 12 the Woman represents the Sun itself, AND the Red Dragon attempting to devour the Woman’s child is the moon.   Hmm sounds fishy...
  Others say the Dragon represents something else.
  The Dragon sweeping a third of the stars from the sky obviously relates to the stars falling to Earth.   So the “Divine Drama” of Revelation 12 appears to be a celestial display reflecting events occurring in the heavenly sphere, and signify on Earth the occurrence of the “war in heaven” described in Revelation 12.

  If we look at part of the verses 12 to 13 of Revelation 12 : Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them!   But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the Devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!   And, when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the Earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.
You can say since 2000, the Dragon has been the enemy of not only Our Lord but also of Mary, His Divine Mother.  The Dragon is Satan.

  St. Louis de Montfort (1673-1716) was perhaps the first mystic to believe that Mary would play a prominent role in a battle against Satan during the “latter times” and recognized the importance of Our Lady in the approach of the Second Coming of Jesus.   “The salvation of the world began through Mary and through her it must be accomplished,” said de Montfort.
  Mary, two thousand years ago, scarcely appeared in the first coming of Jesus Christ so as not to confuse people, to not wander from the truth by becoming too strongly attached to her.   But, he also stated that “in the second coming of Jesus Christ, Mary must be known and openly revealed by the Holy Spirit so that Jesus may be known, loved and served through her.”   De Montfort believes that in the future, Mary must shine forth more than ever in mercy, power and grace; in mercy, to bring back and welcome lovingly the poor sinners and wanderers who left the Faith  The defeat of Satan for some scholars occurs at Satan’s expulsion from the heavenly realm, when the ancient Serpent is cast to Earth by the archangel Michael—an event which is heralded by a rare sequence of astronomical omens.

  Some think that the turn of the millennium was mentioned in the original secrets of Our Lady of La Salette, as the date of the arrival of a number of prophecies, including the appearance of a monster (i.e. the Beast of Revelation) who would come to disturb a short lived period of peace.   A few say that the great signs described as appearing in the sky in Revelation 12:1-4 is a dramatization of the astronomical events depicted at the opening of the sixth seal.

  What if this drama turns into a real deal as depicted September 23, 2017?   Hold on, more of that in a second. Many ancients thought of solar eclipses as a dragon attempting to devour the Sun.

  In terms of astronomy, September 23 transpired in a unique way.   The degree of uniqueness will vary to many but it reveals a maze. Before Sept. 23—one month before—a great solar eclipse crossed Earth.  Planetary energies were strongly in play around the time of the eclipse,  August 21.  Intriguing CBSN popular culture report.  Some astrologers believe that the effects of a solar eclipse last up to a year after it occurs.  We should remember history.  After the great eclipse seen back in August of 1999, several potent earthquakes happened; one on Aug. 17, where over 600,000 were made homeless and 17,000 died in Turkey; the Athenian Greece quake of Sept. 7 followed where 100,000 were made homeless and 143 died; and the temblor that rocked Taiwan on Sept. 21 which killed over 2,300 and left 80,000 homeless.  Although not deadly, southern Mexico and Palm Desert, California received a rude awakening of a magnitude 7.5 and 7.0 on 9-30-99 and 10-17-99 respectively.  Things to know, CNN Eclipse of the Century.  


  The last time a total solar eclipse covered the United States was Feb. 26, 1979, as this vintage ABC News report with Frank Reynolds.  In 1999, it was a long eclipse in duration that cut across from the UK toward India.  Hopefully nothing horrific elapsed because of this eclipse which covered a path of totality that passed from Oregon, Idaho, across the center of the United States, and exited in South Carolina; a full eclipse  over the United States which is quite rare. In July 2017, the news of it had not graced the mainstream news, but that sure had changed as we drew closer.

  The eclipse may portent something out of the ordinary to happen, like in 1999 with various geophysical events or, something else, as is described in the August-September issue (2017) of THE MOUNTAIN ASTROLOGER.   ENERGIES.  This solar eclipse was but minutes (over totality) but the Moon blocked the normal stream of infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light and that momentary suspension, it is said, affects the Earth's magnetic field, as well a the pineal gland and DNA— it may affect our human strengths, creativity and weaknesses.  "Watch for important insights on August 21; being in nature, meditation, and prayer facilitates receiving important instructions from your higher Self," informs THE MOUNTAIN ASTROLOGER

Mountain Astrologer The Invisible Garment

  In a book by Connie Kaplan, The Invisible Garment, she identifies 30 degrees of the zodiac regarding a universal cycle of development, the 30 degrees of each sign in the transmission of the spiritual self.   Is it possible that humanity's evolution and survival is depended on an awakening from the mordial depths into a heart-centered consciousness? for according to astrologers, solar eclipses are like powerful New Moons, with a portrait of major endings and beginnings, and taken one step further, according to Kaplan, this so-called Great American Solar Eclipse is beyond the degree of the first New Moon in Leo.  August 21 signifies the second New Moon/solar eclipse with a greater integration and expression of that long lost word, love.  We will always need more of that.  This eclipse is in the very late degree of Leo, and then the Moon will move into dependable Virgo.

  However, on the internet, SEPTEMBER 23 is a “prophetic sign,” in part to a reappearance of 12 stars connected to the constellation Leo—the lion—along with the Sun, Jupiter and the Moon in the feet of the constellation Virgo.
  Some people claim that this is a very rare event; allegedly only once in 7,000 years according to some; according to others it never has happened in such a way; and according to the other side of the coin, its not rare and it has occurred.  For starters, may we suggest looking over the following link:

Historically, for the past 12-15 years or so, 2 or 3 other “signs” had been making the rounds regarding Revelation:


A) The alignment of the Giza Pyramid pronouncement of Sept. 20, 2017.

B) The tetrad of total lunar eclipses in 2014-2015.

C) The belief that Sept. 23, 2017 is the midpoint of Tribulation; after all, those from this camp believed it started in 2014 (connected to the Blood Moon) and the end would be 2026, so we needed a mid-point—however, it is fair to say we are not in the Tribulation—at least, not yet.  

I must adamantly stress, I am neither counting on Sept. 23 or discounting it.  On or about 3/2 BC, something similar to our Sept. 23, 2017 did occur. There appeared a rare triple conjunction of the stars which led certain wise Magi or wise kings to Bethlehem.  It was indeed a triple conjunction that only those who studied the stars understood.

Regulus Virgo Unique Alignment

  They saw Jupiter (the king planet, through its retrogade motion) and the bright star Regulus come together in Leo—which for many a symbol of the tribe of Judah.   Why not?   The formation of the zodiac is traced back to Jewish astronomers.  After the triple conjunction, Jupiter was seen to be heading west until it made a conjunction with Venus.   And, this conjunction was so close and so bright, no man alive had ever seen anything like it.   To top it off, Jupiter continued its movement west until it finally stopped in the sky near Jerusalem.   Actually, as seen from Jerusalem, it appeared directly over the small village of Bethlehem, 8 kilometers directly south of Jerusalem.  Remember, as we orbit the Sun each year, the Sun appears to move through the 12 constellations of the zodiac, in reality spending about 1 month in each one.  


  During September through late October (the autumnal equinox) the Sun appears in Virgo.   Moreover, the Moon frequently appears near the feet of Virgo. Generally speaking, a good astronomer will state that, for a day or two each September or October, the Sun does appear in Virgo with the Moon at her feet, so “this is not that remarkable.” There is a professor named Dr. Danny R. Faulkner who told us (May 1, 2017) via the web the autumnal equinox has an added visitor, Jupiter, the wondering giant planet that takes 11.86 years to orbit the Sun.  He also remembered Jupiter was close to Virgo in 1969, plus the fact that the last time Jupiter was in and the Moon was at Virgo’s feet for a day or two was in 2005. Then he quips that it was no big deal in 2005 because “YouTube was very new then” which is to say 2005 or 2017 shouldn’t be a big deal.

  Yet, the astronomical event should be seen both in zodiacal terms and in the words of St. John of Patmos, the prophet who lived around 2,000 years ago and wrote Revelation.   Heavenly signs, symbolism, co-incidences in timing, call it what you will, none of it would be impressed upon the mind without modern star programs, in particular something called Stellarium.  What transposed in 3/2 BC occurred with two important things in mind: 1. The astronomical event was followed by men of learning who took the time to study the stars and knew of the significance of what was said about a coming Messiah, a Jewish king from David and to be born of a Virgin and its importance for the future.  2. The astronomical event was seen by them with their very own eyes.

Star of Bethlehem

  In modern context, one can take the time to study the stars not only by mere eye observation but by the power of Stellarium, which also lets us peer into the past.   The Star of Bethlehem, the strange conjunctions, symbolism or no symbolism, the thing is that it really happened.  It formed real history.  When we turn our gaze to our heavens, like it or not, even the average person can see for himself the authenticity of September 23.  Question: Does it match Revelation?  in particular Revelation 12 which is a hot topic on the world wide web.   Let us go beyond generalities. I am not stating we are due to a world of nightmares. This world has its share of horrible dangers and problems already.  August, September, October for many people in the United States is hurricane season, and that usually spells trouble. Do we need to hear of a possible future with more horrific nightmares that could eclipse anything already known?

  Nevertheless for the record, as stated in Alert: For the Times, Book of Secrets, although we have witnessed recent crack-pot ideas about “end-times”, there is no doubt Christianity has been diminishing in much of the world, a world in novel perplexities and old perplexities, filled with tumultuous times.   In terms of Catholicism, it is worse, even in Portugal you are seeing a couple of things you never thought possible like the rise of pro-abortion leaders.  Overall, the spectrum is that the words and commands of Our Savior are shrinking and shrinking and in many parts of the world ignored. Translation: the rise of false beliefs, dangers, and tribulation, with lower case T.  If you are on the optimist side of things, the “bad things” will surely end, and all those displeasures are temporary. Besides, has it not happened before? Discomforts? Tribulations?

  Punishments from God?  When something spectacular and fiery occurred in 2013, a meteor over Russia, everyone noticed the unusual event.  Was the Sept. 23 alignment just a pretty story, a series of observation of Signs in the Sky?  

  Astronomical conjunctions have appeared before and until it passes, one cannot say what will occur next with a great certainty.      The formation of stars have aligned with swings of similar patterns, as our Professor Faulkner has alluded, but according to my full research, not in the exact same manner as September 23, 2017.  

  From a historical standpoint, a few signs happen ahead of time.  First, the opening verses of Rev. 12: “And a great sign appeared in heaven:  A woman clothed with the Sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried out travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.” (Revelation 12: 1-2).  On August 27, 2016, Jupiter entered the sign of Virgo. Jupiter is the King planet for some.  For all, it is the giant planet. Ancient rabbis, Greeks, Romans, Chinese studied the stars, but we take the zodiac signs as designated by ancient rabbis. For the Jews, Jupiter is known as the planet of the Messiah.    On November 20, 2016, Jupiter began to enter the body of Virgo (womb) of the constellation Virgo.   Here began one astronomical event in that Jupiter this time lasts 9 1/2 months within Virgo; it corresponds with a gestation period of a normal late-term baby. In the past, Jupiter has entered Virgo, sometime 9 months, sometimes less, sometimes more than 9 months. 

  First, the opening verses of Revelation which rather corresponds to the constellations Virgo and Leo: “And a great sign appeared in heaven:  A woman clothed with the Sun, and the moon under her feet....”

(Revelation 12).  

  As stated on November 20, 2016, Jupiter entered the constellation Virgo.   

Scotty Clark Unique Alignment

  It exited Virgo, however before it did, in April, according to the findings of researcher Scotty Clark, whom we should give credit, points out that there are things associated with Rev. 12 that happen first, and then it is claimed they connected to April.
  For starters, in Joel 2:31, Joel prophesied that before the Tribulation period, the Sun will turn to darkness and the moon into blood.  The last blood moon was circa 2015.  On April 10, 2017, occurred a new moon, and also discernible to the naked eye was Jupiter inside Virgo for all to see.  Scotty relates as Revelation 12 was forming, the signs were forming mainly that Jupiter was in Virgo but also the moon was within the belly of Virgo.  

  It was drawing your attention, so to speak.
PSALM 19:1-4: The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
  When the alignment of Sept. 23 occurred, people in the western hemisphere were bathed in daylight, so in reality, eyes never saw it all because of the Sun's interference however, it did not erase the knowledge bathed by today’s technology that this alignment and its formation was accessible!  On the other side of the world, it was night but technology aided all eyes to see.  

  The book preceding The Revelation is the Epistle of Jude.   In verse 7, which fits our times, we read: 

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them, in like manner giving themselves
over to fornication and going after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Woe unto them, for they have gone in the ways Cain, and ran
greedily after the error of Balaam, for reward, and perished in the contradiction of Korah.   Raging waters of the sea, foaming out their own shame, stars with no set course, to whom is reserved

Signs in the sky?   September 23 2017

  The prospect of a unique alignment, day or night, with the aid of the computer began to draw attention to Sept. 23, 2017 just within the last 14-18 months.  These are stars that normal eyes can see.  Events, by the way, which were foretold to be accompanied by “the Signs in the Sky” described at the opening of the sixth seal in the Apocalypse, and in Jesus’ Olivet discourse in the Gospels.



A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary  Revelation?  During Apostasy?

  The heavens saw nine stars on Sept. 23 that normally pop out Sep-Oct however, center stage are 3 planets: Mercury, Venus, and Mars.   (Don’t be fooled by those saying these 12 never appeared before. They have but, something happened in 3 BC that forms a correlation to Sept. 23.)  There is an amazing appearance of 3 planets that was very significant.  Mars replaces Jupiter which had appeared 3 BC; and it may or may mean nothing.  Until now, I had known about Virgo and certain alignment dispositions, but not that the constellation alignment of 3 BC seems to closely reappear on Sept. 23; in other words it seems to match Rev 12:1-2 and the alignment of 3 BC and it could be a dual prophecy.  All from the same Biblical chapter and verses.

  But, the Lord cometh?  

  It explores the coming of Christ.  It explores a syzygy, an alignment of 3 celestial objects.   Well, bear with me.  This new alignment came on the heels of the Great American Eclipse, which as enumerated before may mean something, as a sign of “the change.”  Granted, we have a different planet than what was seen by the Magii in 3 BC. The planet Jupiter, associated with God the Father, was replaced by Mars, although Jupiter did not completely disappear from the scene.  The planet Mars is usually associated with war.   Our other star displayed on Sept. 23 was Venus, normally associated with the morning star, which in turn is by the side of the moon when seen from Earth and represents Jesus. The planet Mercury is associated with Gabriel the messenger.  

  The planet Mars, as stated, is associated with war, and is often thought of as symbolic of the warring Angel, Michael.    Michael is mentioned in Daniel 10:13 and especially in Rev 12:7:  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.  It was a spiritual war, but once caste down, it's fought beyond the upper heavens.  This time Jupiter was also visible, and near the womb of Virgo. 

  On Sept. 23, we saw the star Regulus quite visibly, in the constellation Leo.  Regulus a gigantic blue star.  We saw a unique alignment of the constellation Leo aligning above Virgo on the 23rd.  Virgo usually is depicted as a woman, and in one estimation represents the Virgin, the Virgin Mary.  Also on the 23rd, Virgo was clothed with the Sun, as is mentioned in Revelation.  The moon will be at her feet, something that is mentioned in the Bible.  The serpent constellation was also below her feet.  

  Above Virgo was the constellation Leo, with 12 visible stars not 9 stars.  These 12 are reflected more so than others near the head of the Virgin.  We  thus had Venus (Jesus), Mercury (the messenger angel, Gabriel) and Mars.  They formed the cluster of stars above the head of Virgo, a sign that had not happened in 7,000 years astronomically.

  In Matthew 24:30, we come to this passage:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the Earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  The sign of the Son of man, Jesus, is Venus, which was evident Sept 23.  The sign of war, Mars, was evident Sept 23.  The sign of Mercury, Gabriel, is the messenger and it also was evident  the 23rd of Sept.  In mid-September, the power of Jupiter came out of the constellation of Virgo.  Jupiter had spent 42 weeks inside Virgo before then. 

  Virgo was not clothed with the sun until about 2 weeks later, on Sept 23.  All these exact alignments appear peculiar to our time and something many astronomers say never was seen in history.  Yet, here is something no other historian speaks about.  The connection of war to the latest revelation from Lucia.   

  A few years ago the sisters from the convent where Lucia spent all her life published a book, published by the World Apostolate of Fatima.  Published in English on March 22, 2015, it contains the details of the vision she witnessed in Tuy, Spain, 1944, when she was commanded by Our Lady to write down the Third Secret.  Title:  A Pathway Under The Gaze of Mary, Biography of Sister Maria Lucia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart O.C.D.   

  On Aug. 17, 2014 Socci reported in his column the news of the released new bio of Lucia, written by Lucia’s fellow Sisters with a neet scan of her actual diary pages, and the following link provides an excellent description in detail.  The book was initially published in Portuguese in 2013.  

  It contains 19 chapters with the first half describing her life as a child including the apparitions of Our Lady in 1917. Historically, Bishop da Silva in mid-Oct 43 ordered Sister Lucia to write down the Secret, but she agonized for almost 3 months until on Jan. 3, 1944, when Our Lady appeared to her in the infirmary of Tuy and affirmed it should be done.  On Jan. 3, with pen in hand wrote the text of the vision of the “Bishop in white” which is the text that the Vatican released on June 26, 2000.  It was dated the 3rd of January.  It was not released May of 2000, only hinted as to what was coming.  Then, we have the formerly unpublished words from the secret diary of Lucia about what was newly released in 2013, first in Portuguese then in English 2 years later. But what is new is that she had a personal vision, a different vision than the one of a bishop in white. 


A Baroque painting by Johann Melchoir Georg Schmittdner c. 1700 titled Mary Untier of Knots. The story goes a German nobleman was distressed his wife planned to divorce him.  To save his marriage, he sought help from a Jesuit who brought the couple together with their wedding ribbon. In this time period it was customary for the maid of honor to tie together the arms of the bride and groom. This uniting of arms with a ribbon symbolized their union for life.

Before an image of Our Lady of Snows, the Jesuit took the white ribbon and untied the knots one by one. When he finished the ribbon became dazzling white. This was taken as confirmation that Mary had heard their prayers.  Fortunately, the divorce was averted, and the couple remained happily married. The painting has survived wars and revolutions, and continues to draw people to it.  Today the original still hangs over the family altar found at the Church of St. Peter am Perlach in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany.  It is aka Mary Undoer of Knots.

New account of Lucia Jan 3 1944

The uniqueness opens an explanation that used to be totally in the speculatative world but now, kinda spooky.  While the vision of 1944 is only a small part of the 339 pages, the new account provides an excellent detail of what happened January 3.  

  It was near 4 pm, January 3 when Lucia prayed in the chapel of the convent before the Tabernacle asking for a guidance when she felt a hand affectionately touching her shoulder.  Our Blessed Mother then spoke to her and told her “be at peace, and write what I have commanded you, but not, however, that which has been given to you to understand its meaning”.  

  Behind the scenes Lucia had been revealed the meaning of what the vision meant by Our Blessed Mother.  That meaning remains in the speculative mode.   I believe it forms the other text, the second part of the Third Secret that Alert: For The Times, Book of Secrets parlays and which back in the early 2000s Paolini and Socci tried to tell the world but were attacked by Cardinal Bertone.  The idea of another so-called 2nd part is something a Rev. Schweigl alluded to in the 1950s—as found in my Historical Keypoints report, which is available with my history book, Alert: For The Times

  This other still secretive text is probably what Sister Lucia finally wrote on Jan. 9, 1944.  The following is astonishing information because it contains certain key points never before mentioned by Lucia, for previously it had belonged to the realm of speculation, hearsay, baloney talk, Catholic generalities with not a wisp of proof.  Sister wrote in her dairy: 


  "I felt my spirit flooded by a mystery of light that is God and in Him I saw and heard: the point of the flame-like lance [also translated the point of a spear with a flame or also the point of a spear like a flame] which detaches [also translated that is detached], touches the axis of the earth and it [the earth] shakes: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried.   {Paragraph separated in this report.}

The sea, the rivers, the clouds leave their boundaries, they overflow, flood and drag with them into a whirlpool [also translated in a vortex], houses and people in a number unable to be counted.  It is the purification of the world from the sin it is immersed in. Hatred, ambition, cause destructive wars [also translated provoke war.]  After I felt my heart race, in my spirit a soft voice said: ’In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy Catholic Apostolic.  In eternity.  Heaven.’  (Note: that is something non-Catholics will not like and most probably why many connected with Vatican II cringe at.)  This word ‘Heaven’ filled my heart with peace and happiness in such a way that, almost without being aware of it, I kept repeating to myself for a long time:  Heaven.  Heaven.” 

  So we have a tsunami and other negative things, but they follow the tip of a spear (flame-like lance) which Lucia first saw.       Was it some form of strange, streaking heavenly body or laser or a missile?  


  A strange set of events is popping up in late 2017.  

  It may seem borderline, however, it should be watched as this Sept. 25 a vote was taken by Kurds for independence from Iraq which then gained a landmark approval by the Kurdish people. The Kurdish people make up the 4th largest ethnic group in the Middle East.  They number between 25 and 35 million people but Iraq vowed no separation and promised to close the Kurds' oil export pipeline and seize the two airports.  [ It is ok for Kurdish soldiers to give their blood battling Muslim militants; its ok to give them promises and every year postpone and postpone a vote for self-rule.  Its ok for Europeans and Americans to talk of democracy and voting and liberty but as long as Muslims rule in the Middle East  and the big, beautiful oil from the oilfields in the north go to pay for the Baghdad governing bodies everybody else can go jump in the lake and that is sorrowful especially when you got a people who wish for liberty and have a manpower that is militarily adept and strong, if equipped.]  


   On the other side of the world, it is something else, namely accelerated atomic tests—some via long-range rocketry— by N. Korea and talk that it will use them against the United States people, such as those living in Hawaii or Los Angeles, California— the Greater Los Angeles area has a population of 18.7 million (City of Los Angeles is 3.9 million.) 

  What matters is that this is not 2006 when the North Koreans did their first nuclear test in the ground—and Maj. Ed Dames warned it would happen before it did—for on July 4, 2017 they actually fired a rocket capable of reaching the U.S., an intercontinental ballistic missile test.  Such a missile if done right survives reentry and then explodes in a so-called airburst blast.  Another deadly thing many are unaware is a new term: an EMP weapon.  A revolutionary concept that theoretically can knock out the electronics of a continent—electricity, computers, refrigeration, back-up electronic systems.  Banking, ATMs go down the toilet.  Want to EMP-proof your car?

  On Sept. 3, they conducted what experts surmise a massive 250 kiloton bomb, in a tunnel and was so extraordinary it was picked up by seismographs—the 6th and largest atomic test to date.  

  The experts believe it used tritium and deuterium to achieve a greater explosion, comparable to an H-Bomb.

  Then on Sept. 15, a day after the Zapad 2017 war games, North Korea, with a population of 25 million, fired one more intermediate missile that set alarms over Japan as it flew over Japan again; it splashed in the sea.  Only one person, Kim Jong Un, has the authority to start a war with a spear and a flame.  South Korea is vulnerable.  Sanctions fail if not done collectively however, S. Korea has something—if implemented on time— called the KMPR Plan (Korea Massive Punishment & Retaliation plan,) that if utilized would launch attacks on the North Korean capital and all known hideouts of the country's leadership before, they act.  The allies hope they hit with enough time to head off orders that sends countries to war.  

  In June 2016, an unnamed South Korean government source told the Yonhap News agency that once KMPR would be activated, the retaliation is that the North's capital city will be reduced to ashes and removed from the map.  Interestingly enough, it is said the U.S.A.F. base on Guam is called the "tip of the spear," which may be neither here nor there.  Luckily, from all indications it will not be the end of the world. 

  Back to the revelation of the spear.  In the released document of the Third Secret of 2000, I call the Fatima module in Alert: For The Times, that document states Pope John Paul II first read the Secret on July 18, 1981.  

  Then there is also the account that the Pope is stated to have also read the Secret in 1978.  That can also be true because as indicated, he indeed had read the part of the vision that is described above alongside the spear and that just came to light in the new book Pathway Under The Gaze of Mary.  

  There exists a little known correspondence between German Catholics at Fulda, Germany in which Pope John Paul II was asked why the 3rd Secret was not released?  This occurred before 1981 if memory serves me right.  I remember at the time I thought of it as unimportant, but now that we know the score, it is not anymore some invention. 

  The Pope answered them in a clever way to make it sound far-fetched, “It should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired.”

  Quite possibly, I believe there will be a time of tribulation after this event, including the reign of the Antichrist and final Passover of the Church foreseen in the Third Secret.  Would the newly appeared Mars mean something? 

  The prospect of a unique alignment with the aid of the computer surely began to draw attention to Sept. 23, 2017 just within the last 12-14 months.


  The end of the “thousand years” in Revelation 20 is the age spoken of by Christ in his eschatological discourse on Mount Olivet, when wars would increase in intensity and there would be a mass departure from the Faith—the age of the Great Apostasy (which I believe we are in) when the light of the Gospel would once again be veiled to the minds of unbelievers: And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another.  And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.  And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. (Matthew 24: 6-12).
