 The HEAVENS DECLARE 
the GLORY of GOD' (Psalm 19:2)
APRIL - TALEH (Lamb) changed by Romans to ARIES (Ram), 'Lamb sent forth', 'He who is slain' - Diamond: For most of our life we have marveled over the silent heavens above. On a clear night it can appear like a warm assuring blanket, even in the cold. We hear stories about how each star is a tiny 'crack in the heavenly floor', shining through to remind us of God's glory. Angels in the sky!  So many things run through our heads. We forget that people for thousands of years have done the same thing. But when God created the stars, did he just toss them randomly into space - or did he write a message of hope and salvation for all his children to see from the days of the fall of Adam?  Scripture tells us he placed and named each of the stars. Why?

ABOUT DIAMONDS & CRYSTALS
 rock diamonds or rock crystals, they are still formed by the spoken word of God!

EZECHIAL 34:11, 23-24
11 For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will look after and tend my sheep ...  23  I will appoint one shepherd over them to pasture them .... he shall pasture them and be their shepherd. 24  I, the LORD, will be their God ...

12 SIGNS, 12 TRIBES, 12 STONES, 12 STARS
How better to reach all his children than through the stars above. Did he write his love story through 12 signs of the Mazzaroth about the coming of his son before Christ was born? He could - but did he? Today we know there are 12 constellations in the sky, one for each of the 12 tribes of Israel - 'in the order of their birth', commanded God. The most commonly known constellation /tribe combination is Leo (Christ), Leo the Lion of Judah. (tribe of Judah). It is the last constellation to be read in the Hebrew Calendar, Virgo (Virgin) is the first. Each tribe was also assigned a stone by God to Moses.  A stone to be worn on the ancient priests garment called the Ephod (Breastplate of Decision). And Revelations 12: 12:1. 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 (12) twelve stars.'  What does this crown of 12 stars mean?  The Church? 12 Apostles? 12 Tribes of Israel? The, crown of stars, the circular starry story of Her son's life?  (The number 12 also symbolizes 'governmental perfection' reminding us that God is in control.) Lets go on:

 THE HEBREW CALENDAR
The first sign or constellation in the story of the coming Jewish Messiah according to the ancient Hebrew Calendar is Virgo (Virgin). It lies between LIBRA (Scales of Justice) and LEO (Christ the King). It is one of the largest constellations in the sky. Ancients saw it as the Virgin (seed of the woman, virgin birth) holding an ear of corn in her left hand (promised seed), a baby across her waist (the coming Messiah) and a branch in the right hand (shoot). See stars of Virgo below.)
+
 HE NUMBERS THE STARS - CALLS EACH BY NAME
What do these ancient star names reveal? Like Virgo, Many constellations still contain stars that carry their original names - names that point out the story of redemption in the sky. To understand better about their meaning and how they told the story, continue reading the information below.  Does the word 'Astrology' or 'Horoscope' creep into your head? Forget it, we are uncovering the lie and giving the heavens back to God. We point them out, you decide.

STARS OF ARIES / TALEH

IDENTIFYING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
ASTRONOMY AND ASTROLOGY

PSALM 147: 2-5
2 The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem, gathers the dispersed of Israel, 3 Heals the broken hearted, bind up their wounds, 4. Numbers all the stars, calls each of them by name. 5 Great is our Lord, vast in power, with wisdom beyond measure.

REVELATION 5:8,12
8 When he took it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb.Each of the elders held a harp and gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones. 9 They sang a new hymn: "Worthy are you to receive the scroll and to break open its seals, for you were slain and with your blood you purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue, people and nation. 10 You made them a kingdom and priests for our God, and they will reign on earth." 11 I looked again and heard the voices of many angels who surrounded the throne and the living creatures and the elders. They were countless in number,  12 and they cried out in a loud voice: "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing."

 PSALM 19:2
The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder's craft. 3 One day to the next conveys that message; one night to the next imparts that knowledge. 4 There is no word or sound; no voice is heard; 5 Yet their report goes forth through all the earth, their message, to the ends of the world.

 ANCIENT IMAGE OF TALEH / ARIES:A horned lamb or ram peacefully resting with one foreleg over the band of Pisces. Resting over CETUS (see below) and across part of TAURUS (the bull).  Similar to CAPRICORN who faces away towards the battle while ARIES faces towards the fish, the redeemed. Both rest on the suns path across the sky. Also known as AL HAMAL (Arabic for 'The Sheep, Gentle and Mericful') and as with many languages, confirm the continuity of the name of this Constellation, including the ancients who called it BARAZIGGAR (Bar = Altar, ZIGGAR = Making Right)

ANCIENT NAMES STILL USED TODAY

~ THE STARS of  ARIES / TALEH ~

AND THEIR MEANINGS:

*EL NATIK*
(Arabic for The Wounded, Slain')

*AL SHERATAN*
(Arabic for 'The Bruised, The Wounded')

*MESARTIM*
(Hebrew for 'The Bound')

  TRIANGLE OVER THE HEAD OF THE LAMB
Earliest images included a triangle over the head of ARIES / TALEH.  It was called SALISHA by the Hebrews 'Exhalted or 'Chief'.  In Arabic, RAS AL THALITA ('Head of the Triangle'). In Greek it was called DELTOTON ('High' - and this word in Arabic means 'Lifted Up')

ISAIAH 6:1-3
1 In the year King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a high and lofty throne, with the train of his garment filling the temple. 2  Seraphim were stationed above; each of them had six wings: with two they veiled their faces, with two they veiled their feet, and with two they hovered aloft. 3 "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts!" they cried one to the other. "All the earth is filled with his glory!"

WHAT DOES A CATHOLIC

~ ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY ~

SCRIPTURE SCHOLAR SAY?

   .
 THE ZODIAC DOES NOT HAVE ROOTS IN HOROSCOPES
 What we know as the star constellations - pictures in the night sky - are often called in English the "signs of the Zodiac", is known in Hebrew as "the Mazzeroth" (crown of stars) or star constellations set in place by God Himself, Job 38:31; Isaiah 13:10; Amos 5:8. This placement of the stars by God was done to tell the Gospel plan of redemption before the Bible was put into writing. The word Zodiac is a term used in astronomy, Job 9:9 (lb).  God’s message in the stars where the book of creation speaks to man of God's awesome power, Psalm 19:1–6 (Note words “speech,” “language,” “voice” in the text. Then compare verses 7–13.).
+
THE BIBLE CONDEMNS ASTROLOGY
The science of Astronomy is NEVER to be confused with ASTROLOGY which is fortune telling and the Bible condemns.  ASTRONOMY is the science dealing with the phenomena outside the earth’s atmosphere but especially concerned with the observable arrangements, motions, and characteristics of the heavenly  bodies planets, stars, asteroids and universes in space. The word “astronomy” is based on two Greek words meaning “the law of the stars.”
+
ASTRONOMY AND ITS VALUES
  Astronomy is by no means a modern science. Human beings have always been preoccupied with the heavens. The concern of the earliest civilizations with the universe appears to have been mainly intellectual curiosity and the need for navigational orientation were certainly additional factors. (Also remember the star of Bethlehem that guided the 3 kings to the child Jesus. They have been called 'readers of the stars', and 'astronomers'. The term astrologers is questionable)
+
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
The Bible provides some interesting insights about astronomy. According to Genesis 1:14–19 the sun and moon, along with the stars, have the function of giving light on the earth, determining the seasons, and functioning as “signs.” The word “season” may denote festal seasons as well as the annual seasons. The Hebrew calendar was a lunar-solar calendar similar to that of the Babylonians. Hebrew festal seasons were based on the phases of the moon. The function of the heavenly bodies as signs seems to relate to their delineation of the heavens, permitting human beings on earth to orient themselves, navigate land and the high
seas and know the stars were created by God.

 PRESENTATION

~ EPHOD IMAGE ~

 AT THE TEMPLE

 The 'Breastplate of Decision' was worn
by the Priests from the time of Aaron, given to Moses by God
Note the 3 rows of 4 stones, one for each of the 12 tribes of Israel.

 Here, in this old 1867 image, we see the child Jesus being presented
at the temple by his parents which was the tradition.. He is reaching
 out for Joseph on our left and is mother Mary on our right.

~ ABOUT DIAMONDS ~

.
 Even though we are not able to provide a diamond rosary for our April Birthstone, we thought you would enjoy reading about diamonds:  We know that diamonds are basically crystallized carbon and are formed under great pressure. We have probably also read that volcanic action brought these gems to the surface of the earth and into river beds along with being mined in many countries including Africa, Australia, India and Russia..

But did you know that they were considered rare and beautiful un cut? And that the original shape of the diamond was not to be changed or touched? They were to be left alone like a rough cut pebble. It would not be until the 1500s that people would begin to understand and perfect the cutting and polishing techniques used today on diamonds and other gemstones. And today the skill of the master cutter and polisher of these gemstones helps determine its final value.

CRYSTALS AND ROCKS
‘Here we have used the finest Austrian  crystal, Swarovski. And for our other choice, we have used uncut, un polished rock crystal for the Paters and to keep it in a more natural state, the Ave’s are of wood. It all came from the spoken word of God so we find the crystals and rocks used in our rosaries to be treasured.

 JOB 38:31-32
31 Have you fitted a curb to the Pleiades, or loosened the bonds of Orion?  32  Can you bring forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or guide the Bear with its train? 33  Do you know the ordinances of the heavens; can you put into effect their plan on the earth?
