On June 21, the summer solstice day, the sun moves into the constellation Gemini (the united).
Gemini is the tenth chapter of the Star Bible and is a picture of two men. One has the bright star Pollux (he who comes to suffer) at the head and the star Alhena (the wounded) at the foot, a clear representation of Christ as the wounded seed of woman, bruised in the heel. The other has the bright star Castor (the ruler) at the head and the star Mebsuta (treading underfoot) in the foot, a picture of Christ, the victorious seed of woman, treading Satan underfoot. Thus Gemini pictures not two men but one, Jesus, as He came to suffer and will come to rule. Two of the constellations associated with Gemini convey the same message, with Canis Minor (the victorious) and its bright star Procyon (redeemed) representing the suffering savior and Canis Major (the leader) and the brightest star in the heavens, Sirius (the prince) representing Christ the ruler.
Gemini pictures the first and second coming of Jesus, and plays a role in both events. Gemini moved into the summer season in the year Jesus was conceived, 6 B.C., and its star Pollux (he who comes to suffer) reached zenith over Jerusalem at the same time. The precession of the equinoxes will carry the star Castor (the ruler) to zenith over Jerusalem in 2121 A.D., the same year that Gemini exits the summer solstice and Taurus, the sign of Christ's Second Coming, enters the summer season. In that sense Gemini covers the time from the coming of the first figure, the suffering Savior, to the second, the Ruler. And it is one of the signs in the sun, moon and stars of both the first and Second Coming of Christ.
Because the sun moves through the lower portions of Gemini, the two bright stars of Pollux (he who comes to suffer) and Castor (the ruler) are visible above the northwestern horizon after sunset. Also just after sunset, along with these pictures of the suffering and triumph of the seed of woman, you will see the planet Jupiter, which represents the suffering Savior to the south, and the planet Saturn, representing Christ the Ruler to the east.
Hidden in the glare of the sun in Gemini are Mars, representing the redeeming blood of Jesus, and Mercury, picturing the judgment of Satan. Later this year, during the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, these planets will come into view during the period of darkness at totality, reminding us of the choice of redemption in Christ or judgment. See our recently released book Teshuvah Eclipses for more information.
So tonight, take your binoculars and look for Pollux, Castor, Jupiter and Saturn as they showcase the triumph of Christ, the seed of woman. And tell someone there is still time to accept Christ and avoid the judgment to come.
