Below is a simulation of the planets and star in conjunction shortly after sunset on October 5. There is only a very small white dot for Jupiter and Spica is so dim that the program does not label it. Spica and Mercury will set below the horizon before it is dark enough for them to be visible. Jupiter may be visible shortly before it sets. I would not consider this a great visual sign and it will be far from being seen as “very bright” as some are suggesting.
ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE

covered by the moon as seen from
This is an interesting event in light of the fact that Bethulah (the woman) will be clothed with the sun and the moon beneath her feet at the New Moon sighting two days later.
Rev. 12:1 – And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet…..
We will just have to wait to see if this is the time for the rest of this scripture to be fulfilled.
There will be a very slight partial lunar eclipse

The chart below shows the position of the moon in the constellation Pisces during the peak of the eclipse.
The last time there was a lunar eclipse in Pisces were
the two total lunar eclipses, both on, or on the eve of, the Feast of
Tabernacles in 1996 and 1997. Both of
those eclipses were easily visible from
MARS IS GETTING BRIGHTER
No, this is not a hoax.
Mars approaches close to the earth as the orbital paths of the two
planets allow about every 2.2 years. In
a cycle of about every 79 years they get closer than in normal 2.2 year cycles. On
Mars is now approaching its closest point to the earth in
its normal 2.2 year cycle. It is even
shining brightly now in the eastern sky about an hour after sunset. Mars will continue to brighten throughout October

A Voice Crying In The Heavens
Robert Scott Wadsworth
Biblical Astronomer and Author Bob Wadsworth will reveal the ancient biblical names given to the constellations and the planets using computer digital imagery projected onto a giant nine foot screen, as he narrates about the following subjects; The Bible references that actually name the constellations and planets; Biblical Astronomy versus Astrology; Where the constellations came from; The Biblical meanings of the constellations; Who named the stars; The prophetic meaning of the names of the stars in light of the first and second coming of the Messiah; Recent celestial events that point to the second appearing of Yahshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ).
Session 1: The Biblical meaning of the constellations and
planets. The 48 constellations of the Mazzaroth will be covered in relation to
the first and second appearing of the Messiah, and their relationship to
Session 2: The Fall of Adam, The Great Flood, The birth
of Abraham; Dates for the Exodus; The Assyrian captivity of the Ten Northern
Tribes; The Babylonian captivity of Judah; The birth of Jesus Christ; The
Crucifixion, Resurrection, Ascension of Jesus Christ and Pentecost.
Session 3: This session will discuss very rare celestial events concerning the Second Coming of the Messiah. From 1995 to the present certain events have happened that are pertinent to the return of the Messiah. More unusual celestial events have occurred in the past eight years than at any other particular time.
This is a fascinating journey of biblical truth that every Christian should experience. You will never look at the sky and the stars the same ever again. We hope to see you there.

Asedah – to be slain
(In the ancient Zodiac of Denderah the constellation is called Sura, a lamb).
The Greek names of this constellation are Thera, a beast, and Lycos, a wolf. Both are perversions to the original picture and meaning of this constellation. The Latin name is Victima, the victim.
Isaiah 53:7 – He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
Stars in Lupus and the meaning of their names.
The stars in this constellation are dim and their names have thus far been lost to antiquity. More than 22 stars have been catalogued. None of them are higher than 4th magnitude; most of them are 5th and 6th.
The following are excerpts from E.W. Bullinger’s The Witness of the Stars, pp. 51, 52 concerning this constellation. “In the ancient Zodiac of Denderah He is pictured as a little child with its finger on its lips, and He is called Sura, a lamb!” “All this pointed to one and the same great fact, viz., the development and explanation of what was meant by the bruising of His heel! It meant that this Promised Seed of the woman should come as a child, the He should suffer, and die upon the Cross, for (insert Isaiah 53:7 here). Hence, the constellation prefigures a silent, willing sacrifice – Christ Jesus, who, “being found in fashion as a man, humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the Cross” (Phil. 2:5-8).
We fashioned this constellation picture after the picture in the Denderah Zodiac shown below, though with a few changes.
