The first of a series of four blood moon lunar eclipses kicked off at early this morning- a ‘tetrad’ spanning the next 2 years with a solar eclipse in the middle. The rare astrological series of alignments have given wave to mounting conspiracy theories about the end of days.
Lots of theories exist about certain bible scriptures and have always been abound. The power of the stars, sun and moon are well documented throughout the history of Christiandom and the Jewish tradition.
Complex schools of thought exist which broaden interpretation as to what the blood moons really symbolize.
The culmination of an era signaled by an eclipse is compared to the intervals making up a musical octave which can harmonize or create dissonance with the preceding intervals- an analogy often used in the eclectic science of Astrology.
The 20th century has seen a series of tetrad’s not seen in over 500 years. Curiously enough, after these series of blood moons humanity will not see another tetrad in the skies for the rest of the 21st century.
revisiting the tetrads of the last 1000 years (two of which also occurred during Passover)
- 1493-94 Jews exiled from western Europe by the Spanish/Catholic inquisition.
- 1949-1950 after year-long war for the establishment of the State of Israel.
- 1967-1968 again after the brief six-day Israeli-Arab war which greatly expanded the borders of Israel.
What is significant about all this? A tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days has only occurred two times in the last 500 years; each time a tetrad of lunar eclipses has appeared on feast days Israel has been at war.
something to think about.
