    The Woman and the Dragon
    A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
    She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.

    Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.
    Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.
    The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
    She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”
    And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
    The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

    On September 23, 2017--- 33 days following the Great American Eclipse and for the first time in human history--- the woman (Virgo) follows the lion (Leo) bestowed with 12 stars forming her crown, sun adorned with the moon at her feet.
    Leo consists of nine stars; the other three are Mercury, Mars and Venus.
    This occurs three days after the end of 5777, which is a double Jubilee year: for both Jerusalem and Israel.

    Strange things afoot.

    Psst, Leo doesn't consist of 9 stars. (The actual number in any constellation numbers in the millions). There may indeed be 9 more visible stars, but even that varies between atlases.

    Sorry if that messes up your numbers.

    Was there 12 visible stars at one time though?

    What things are you claiming are afoot and what is strange about them?

    Psst, add three wandering stars, i.e., Venus, Mercury and Mars.
    That is, of course, if we assume that Leo has nine main stars--- which, for the most part, it is (and has been) depicted as such.

    Again, there are millions of stars in Leo. What difference does it make adding 3 more?

    9 is arbitrary, and meaningless.

    There are millions of stars in the expanse.
    How did we decide to use the limited amount of them to form constellations?
    What significance do those constellations hold?
    How long have we seen these constellations in the forms currently recognized?

    What do they mean?

    According to your dust cover, it's all arbitrary, meaningless.
    And yet, here you are in a forum dedicated to Spirituality, ostensibly looking for order, meaning.
    When cataclysmic and inexplicable events come crashing down in lock step with prophesies and dreams from thousands of years before, do you think you'll be standing on the sidelines sucking your teeth, nonchalantly insisting it's all just so quaint?

    I won't be around for said sucking, but I'm willing to wager you'll remember this conversation.
    And you won't be smiling fondly.

    Has the Book of Revelation convinced you that this is actually going to happen?

    It's going to happen; but whoever wrote the Bible knew about it thousands of years ago.

    Judging by your post earlier on this page, you seem to be convinced that these "cataclysmic and inexplicable events" are going to happen during Ghost of Duke's lifetime. You also seem to have determined this timing from astrology. Is that what you want people here to think?

    He seems to enjoy getting attention by creating irritating controversies, but I suspect he won't be nailing his underpants to the mast over the stuff in his OP.

    You can notice that he doesn't say he thinks it will will happen anymore than he will state before his god that he truly believes the earth to be flat.

    I'm not particularly worried sir. I have consulted the tea leaves and they tell me everything is going to be okay.

    Astrology?
    Where do you get such a ridiculous notion?
    What part is causing you trouble: understanding that what is described in Revelation 12 is about to happen in the sky; or how we know it's about ready to happen?
