The Three Venus-Jupiter conjunctions of late 2015: A second star of Bethlehem and a new salvation for the world?
In 2015 there are 3 Venus Jupiter conjunctions: 6/30, 8/4, 10/25. The one on 8/4 is closest to Regulus – within 2 degrees. Venus becomes morning star 8/15 – the exact day Jupiter hits Regulus.
7/31 Venus conjunct Regulus 2nd time, Aquarius full moon
8/11 Jupiter arrives at Regulus
8/15 Venus inferior conjunction (Venus transitions to morning star)
Moon (5th day of the lunar month), Regulus (unmarked circle), Venus, Jupiter and the Lion, at the time of summer solstice:
8/15 alignment: Venus – Sun inferior conjunction (Venus becomes morningstar), Jupiter arrives at Regulus, the Lion’s Heart. New moon of Elul, the last month of 5775.
The meaning of Venus, Jupiter and Regulus according to the Magi:
With this in mind, let us recall from our first chapter that on morning of August 12, 3 B.C.E. (about an hour and twenty minutes before sunrise), Jupiter rose as a morning star in conjunction with Venus. How would astrologers or Magi have interpreted this union? Let us took at some of the generally accepted beliefs of astrologers who lived in the time of Augustus and Herod.
Jupiter was known astrologically as the Father of the Gods. The planet Jupiter symbolized this deity. And in early August 2 B.C.E. Jupiter had just left its vicinity near the Sun and conjoined with Venus. This could have been an indication of a coming birth. “Jupiter often was associated with the birth of kings and therefore called the King planet.” 5 And here was the King planet in conjunction with Venus. To the Chaldeans and the Magi, Venus was Ishtar, the Mother, the Goddess of Fertility. Thus Jupiter (the Father) was now in conjunction with Venus (the Mother). Could this have signified to astrologers that the birth of a new king was imminent?
This conjunction could have been a favorable sign because these two planets were known by astrologers as the Greater and the Lesser Good Fortunes of all the planets. And note this: while this conjunction was occurring, the Sun (the Supreme Father), the Moon (considered a Mother), and Mercury (the Messenger of the Gods) were located in the single constellation of Leo, the Lion. Christians called Jesus “the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David.” 6 These primary bodies clustering in Leo while Jupiter and Venus were now in close union may reflect biblical significance. Note Olcott’s remarks about the sign of Leo,
“The Lion was the symbol of the Tribe of Judah, and the constellation appears in the Hebrew zodiac. … The association of Leo with Judah arose from the fact that Leo was Judah’s natal sign. In the Bible there are frequent allusions to this connection between Leo and the tribe of Judah. Thus we read: ‘Judah is the Lion’s whelp,’ and again, ‘The Lion of the tribe of Judah.’”
The interesting astral relationships which occurred in the pre-dawn of August 12, 3 B.C.E. could well have signified to astrologers that some important royal event was soon to happen in the Jewish nation.
