Apocalypse Twelve

You might enjoy listening to this as you read. This Youtube video is contained in my Youtube collection “Valiant Woman’s Favourite Music” which of course I recommend, and my channel itself has two movies by me, with a third on the way.

The last book of the Bible is the Book of the Apocalypse, and typically called the Book of Revelation.

It’s a book full of symbolism and is pretty hard to understand, but I suspect it is best understood in company with the Church fathers, and anything the Roman Catechism might have to say about it. Also, the Catholic Encyclopedia would be worth looking at.

Regardless, there is now in the sky an allegedly unique sign, which corresponds to the Woman in the 12th Chapter of the Apocalypse, or at least, the sign will be seen on September 23rd, 2017, and we are in the lead up to it, as you will see. First, the relevant section, from the Douay-Rheims version of the Bible, which as far as I know, is supposed to be the official English translation for Catholics, even though it is not used in the Mass. (Don’t ask). *sigh*


The vision of the woman clothed with the sun and of the great dragon her persecutor.

[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 twelve stars: [2] And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. [3] And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems: [4] And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son. [5] And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his throne.

[1] “A woman”: The church of God. It may also, by allusion, be applied to our blessed Lady. The church is clothed with the sun, that is, with Christ: she hath the moon, that is, the changeable things of the world, under her feet: and the twelve stars with which she is crowned, are the twelve apostles: she is in labour and pain, whilst she brings forth her children, and Christ in them, in the midst of afflictions and persecutions.

According to the free downloadable program, ‘Stellarium’ (which I highly recommend!) the above image will be seen in the sky on 23rd September.

The Woman of Apocalypse Twelve is symbolised by the constellation Virgo, as seen above. At her head are the nine stars of the constellation Leo, which are always there. Also the planets Mars, Mercury and Venus will be present above her head, and in fact completely aligned between Regulus, the King Star, in the heart of Leo (also often associated with Jesus, the Lion of Judah) and the top of Virgo’s abdomen (womb).

The King planet, Jupiter has been inside Virgo’s ‘womb’ since last November and by the time he is ‘born’ will have been there for about 9½ months, equivalent to a late term pregnancy.

Some are alleging that this is a completely unique event. Assuming Stellarium to be correct, I’m in the process of verifying that for myself. It’s not hard to do, just a bit time-consuming.

What does it mean? Well, I’m just a housewife, so I have no expertise, but the sign clearly matches *fully* the various elements of the Apocalypse 12 sign. The sun, the moon, the twelve stars, and importantly, Jupiter, have all been exactly where they should, to line up with this sign in scripture. As for its meaning, it’s clear from the authoritative Douay-Rheims version that the Church is bringing forth her children, and Christ in them, as she suffers the pains of childbirth at this time. (No kidding!) Who are her children? Us! – all the faithful Catholics alive at this time. We were born for this.

What this means in detail, I don’t know, but I am watching and praying, as Our Lord commanded, and we wait to see what He will accomplish.


How Stellarium looks when you open it up.


I’m checking for myself if this is unique, or at least very rare.
