Five Facts About Lunar Eclipses | Blood Moon

Just as solar eclipses always happen at the new moon, lunar eclipses always happen at the full moon. During a lunar eclipse, the moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow (called the umbra). This can only happen during a full moon because the Earth, Sun and Moon must be aligned exactly.

The full moon almost always appears with a coppery shade of red during a total lunar eclipse because of the sunlight that is filtered and refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere. (The only time it wouldn’t look red is when pronounced volcanic activity might make the moon’s face appear more brownish or gray in color).

During a lunar eclipse, Earth’s shadow is visible creeping across the moon’s face, and this shadow will grow until it completely covers the moon. Then at totality, when the moon is fully covered by the Earth’s shadow, the blood red tinge will appear. This short NASA video does a phenomenal job describing why the moon turns red during an eclipse.

What makes Saturday’s blood moon so significant from a religious prophecy perspective is that it is part of a rare series of four full lunar eclipses each spaced out six months apart, known as a lunar tetradall falling on Jewish holidays!

Lunar eclipses can often last hours, while solar eclipses usually only last a few short minutes. During some lunar eclipses, totality (where the moon is completely covered by Earth’s shadow) can last up to an hour. However, Saturday’s lunar eclipse is the shortest of the entire century according to NASA, with totality lasting only 4 minutes and 43 seconds!

Astro-theology and Great Cycles of Time

In 1894 the Indian astronomer, Sri Yukteswar, wrote that the cause of the precession of the equinox was the result of our sun’s orbit around another star. He estimated the orbit period at 24,000 years. This long cycle is the same concept as Plato’s Great Year, as well as the Maya Long Count calendar.

The deeper occult (hidden) meaning of the pre-Christian cross, as well as its 4 cardinal points, are of great importance in esoteric astrology and astro-theology. This understanding is the essence behind the symbol most famously referred to as the “Swastika” in Sanskrit (卐),  the symbol and its meaning pre-dates written Sanskrit itself.

Astro-theology is the study of the astronomical influence on religion. The ancient Greeks associated the Swastika with the sun god Apollo, exemplifying the symbol’s historic and universal use as a solar emblem.

You remember only one deluge, though there have been many…

You and your fellow citizens are descended from the few survivors that remained, but you know nothing about it because so many succeeding generations left no record in writing. The change in the rising and setting of the sun and the other heavenly bodies, how in those times they used to set in the quarter where they now rise, and used to rise where they now set…

Of all the changes which take place in the heavens this reversal is the greatest and most complete ..There is at that time great destruction of animals in general, and only a small part of the human race survives.” – Critias by Plato 360 B.C.E

Three Rare Celestial Events on Friday | March 20, 2015

As the eclipse plunges the UK and other places into darkness this Friday, two other rare if less spectacular celestial events will be taking place, too: a Supermoon and the Spring equinox.

A Supermoon, or perigee moon, happens when the full or new moon does its closest fly-by of the Earth, making it look bigger than it normally does. And the spring equinox refers to the time of the year when the day and night are of equal duration, mid-way between the longest and shortest days.

“Total eclipses don’t take place on any other known planet, point out intelligent-design scientists. They only take place on Earth, the finely tuned planet where life exists that can actually view them. Biltz points out that the Bible says in Genesis that the sun, moon and stars were created specifically as signs for mankind, so His creation would know about the feasts (or appointed times) to have relationship with their Creator.”
