Astrological Signs in the Hand

Signs in the Hand
Application of Astrology to Chirology


The Birth Chart declares the Sovereign Design of a person's life, and the hands are a record of a person's progress in fulfilling that design.  The thoughts of a person are imprinted in his hands in symbolic form.  That is the basis for chirology.  If people are indeed created and if hand reading is indeed reliable, then there should be a correlation between a person's Birth Chart and the analysis of his hands.  The Birth Chart gives the Spiritual model of a person as a divine creation, while chirology gives the psychological (soulish) model of a person.  The Birth Chart shows what a person was created to be, while the hands show the psychological result of the person's journey through life.

Ancient palmists defined parts of the hand with the names of the planets.  Unfortunately, those ancient palmists were as confused as the ancient astrologers.  Both used Satan's mythology.  Satan named the planets after his demon gods.  Those definitions not only corrupted astrology but also corrupted palmistry.  If, however, the true Biblical definitions of the planets and signs are applied, the true picture of the hand emerges as the fulfillment of the astrological design.

The subject before us is difficult because Astrology and Chirology are two very different paradigms.  Should the astrological model of the hand be placed in a book of astrology or should it be placed in a book on chirology?  Wherever it is placed, it cannot be applied until both Astrology and Chirology are mastered.  Furthermore, both disciplines must be applied to formulate a true picture of an individual.  The big problem is the individual's volition.  A person can use his volition to oppose his own destiny, and he can overcome bad problems in life by making good decisions.
Hand Mounts
For the explanation of hand reading refer to Hands in Scripture.  Until Chirology is learned, it will not be possible to apply the astrological model of the hand presented here.  The illustration of the hand reveals that each finger has a meaning.  The mounts (raised knolls) of the hand are also identified with their meaning.  From these revelations of the parts of the hand, corresponding planets and signs of the Zodiac can be assigned.

Signs in the Hand

Astrological Signs in the HandThe signs of the Zodiac correspond to the mounts of the hand as shown in the illustration.  The first five planets, excluding Earth, correspond to the fingers, although they are not in the same order as in the Solar System.  It should be noted that the astrological signs and planets in the hand are more restrictive than the definitions of parts of the hand used in Chirology.  For example, to the chirologist, the thumb means much more than just a symbol of the Red Planet.  The astrological definitions are not meant to replace the fundamental definitions for Chirology.  They simply provide a more specific view related to astrology.  By using the astrological definitions in the hand, it will be possible to correlate astrological charts to hands.

Note that in the astrological model of the hand, the Masculine Mount is symbolized by the Sun, and the Feminine Mount is symbolized by the Moon.  The Life Line is symbolized by the bow of Sagittarius.  The Life Line can symbolize the wall of a city protected by the army of Sagittarius.  A short Life Line can symbolize a breach in the city wall.  It can also symbolize subjective judgment from the subconscious (Feminine Mount) bleeding over into the mentality (Masculine Mount).  People with short Life Lines can make bad decisions for a marriage partner.

Applying the astrological model to a short Life Line leads to an even more interesting result.  When the Moon (Feminine Mount) blocks the light of the Sun (Masculine Mount), an eclipse occurs.  Thus, a short Life Line indicates the likelihood of Eclipse Testing in the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.2,3   Eclipse Testing is what happened to Adam when his Right Woman sinned.  Only the Right Man and Right Woman can have Eclipse Testing.  Thus, analyzing a short Life Line in terms of the Sun and Moon, leads to the explanation of an eclipse associated with Right Man and Right Woman.

Application of Astrology to Chirology

The Birth Chart symbolizes divine creation, while a person's hand reveals the result of how the divine design has turned out.  The Birth Chart contains blessings, which show up in the hands as propitious and uplifting signs.  Blessing may show up as a trident, star, rising shoot, or clearly etched line.  The cursing in the Birth Chart shows up in the hands as signs of suffering, such as spots, crosses, broken lines, drooping shoots, and pits.  Even though everyone has a volition to choose good or evil, the blessing and punishment are often already in the Birth Chart.  God is not unfair, but the blessing and cursing are allocated at birth to await the appropriate time for their delivery.

Example of Einstein

Einstein had short fingers, which corresponds to a weakness in certain thought processes symbolized by the fingers (ref. Cognitive Model).  He had four planets in Pisces, which corresponds to the Mount of Evangelism at the base of the hand.  The great power of the four planets in Pisces corresponds to Einstein's long hand.  Because of his short fingers he developed mental models rather than relying upon empirical data.  This corresponds to a hand with power in the region of Pisces and weakness in the fingers.

In Einstein's Birth Chart, the Red Planet was in Capricornus, which symbolizes suffering in the flesh from sin, evil, and adultery.  Einstein was the consummate adulterer, who engaged in illicit relationships with the women in his periphery.  The Red Planet in Capricornus symbolizes the suffering from bad decisions in the Cosmic System.  Einstein had an illegitimate daughter, was divorced, and courted a Russian female spy.  In addition, a Line of Lasciviousness, which marked off the region of Capricornus in his hand.  The Line of Lasciviousness indicates the potential for becoming victim of the lust of the flesh with its corresponding suffering.

Einstein's Birth Chart had a Plow pointed at the Last Adam in Taurus, which is, indeed, a sign of the hidden power of mass/energy transformation (E = mc2 ).  However, forgetting the sign of Taurus and focusing on the Last Adam at the point of the Plow leads to different meaning in Einstein's hand.  The Last Adam is on the Mount of Gemini in the hand.  This area includes the Marriage Lines and child lines.  A Plow symbolizes intensified suffering.  Einstein had an illegitimate daughter and other problems with adulterous relationships.

Other Examples

In one person's chart, a Plow pointed to the Moon.  There was also a black spot on the Mount of the Moon in the person's hand.  The black spot on the Mount of the Moon symbolized a sin that was not handled.  The person had an illegitimate child.  The person also had a red spot on the Mount of Gemini, which in the Birth Chart contained the propitious sign of the Morning Star (for Right Man) and the Savior (for Right Woman).  Thus, the red spot indicated suffering due to the breakdown of Marriage Culture in the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.

Another person with extra creases between phalanges in the fingers had a Catwalk in the Birth Chart.  Extra creases symbolize a person who builds bridges to reach out to others.  The extra creases in the fingers make the finger appear like an arched bridge when it is bent.  A Catwalk is like bridge.  It should be noted that other people with extra creases between phalanges did not always have a Catwalk.

General Symbolism of Teeth

The primary purpose of teeth is for eating.  The teeth are used for biting and chewing prior to swallowing.  From this, all kinds of analogies arise.  Animal teeth can cause fear of death or bodily harm (Deut 32:24; Job 41:14).  Gnashing the teeth can symbolize anger or pain (Job 16:9; Psa 37:12; Matt 8:12).  Breaking the teeth can symbolize a disabling injury (Job 4:10; Psa 3:7).  The skin of the teeth can symbolize a very narrow escape (Job 19:20).  Taking one's flesh in his teeth can symbolize taking one's life into his own hands (Job 13:14).  A bad tooth cannot be trusted (Prov 25:19).  Teeth enhance beauty, but losing one can make a person appear ugly (SOS 4:2).  White teeth are a sign of good health and prosperity (Gen 49:12).  And demons can cause foaming at the mouth and grinding of teeth (Mark 9:18).9

Teeth also symbolize the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.  The upper teeth symbolize the Right Man and the lower teeth symbolize the Right Woman.  Having sex is symbolized by the grinding of the molars (Job 31:10).  In keeping with this analogy, the bicuspids in front of the molars symbolize embracing with the arms, while the incisors and canines symbolize holding with the hands.

Eating in the Garden of Eden symbolized the sexual relationship between Right Man and Right Woman.  The man and woman in the Garden ate fruit.  Meat, bread, and cooked food were not eaten until after the Fall because fire, as symbol of judgment, did not exist in the Garden.  The fruit in the Garden, which has survived to this day, was shaped like the male and female genitals and breasts.

The Teeth and the Solar System

The two semicircular patterns of teeth in the mouth actually symbolize the Solar System.  The teeth symbolize the planets, and the semicircular pattern symbolizes their orbits around the Sun.  The Solar System symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator, and the Divine Design for all Creation.4  The Sun symbolizes Jesus Christ; the Moon symbolizes His Bride, the Church; and the planets symbolize the aspects of the Life and work of Christ on behalf of all mankind.  Refer to The Planets for a complete explanation of the Solar System.

TeethThe upper and lower rows of teeth are mirror images of each other.  To be functional, the upper and lower teeth must fit together.  Teeth that don't fit can be the sign of a wild child, who was not born from Right Man and Right Woman.  The rows of teeth also have bilateral symmetry.  Each tooth has a twin on the opposite side of the mouth.  The right side of the mouth symbolizes the spiritual dimension and the left side symbolizes the temporal dimension.  The upper teeth symbolize the Sun and Right Man, and the lower teeth symbolize the Moon and Right Woman.Solar System

The order of the planets in the Solar System as seen from Earth precisely match the order of the teeth.  In each quadrant, there are seven teeth, plus a wisdom tooth in the normal adult.  The incisors symbolize the first two planets.  The canines symbolize the Red Planet, which is unique.  In the Solar System the Asteroid Belt separates the Red Planet from the next two planets.  This division is also reflected in the mouth.  The next two teeth in the mouth, the bicuspids, are different from the pointed incisors and canines.  Unlike the planets made of rock and soil inside the Asteroid Belt, the planets outside the Asteroid Belt are large and gaseous.  The bicuspids correspond to the Almighty God and the God of the Covenants Planets.  The two molars which follow correspond to the Mediator and Redeemer Planets, which have interlocking orbits to set them apart as a pair.  The last planet, the Last Adam, corresponds to the wisdom tooth.  After the Last Adam Planet, the Kuiper Belt marks the outer boundary of the Solar System.

Right Man - Right Woman Analogy of Teeth

Solomon described the beautiful teeth of the Shulamite woman.
Your teeth are like a flock of shorn ewes
That have come up from the washing,
All of them bearing twins,
And not one among them has lost her young. (SOS 4:2)
He compared her teeth to a flock of shorn ewes (female sheep).  Shorn sheep calls attention to their smoothness.  The ewes have come up from the washing, which calls attention to their whiteness.  White is the color of love and sanctification.  It is also a testimony to the cleanness and health of the teeth, which are without rotten spots or other defects.

"All of them bearing twins" refers to the pairs of upper and lower teeth, where each tooth has a counterpart.  The teeth also have twin counterparts on the other side of the mouth.  The upper and lower twins are analogous to Gemini, in which the twins signify Right Man and Right Woman.  The upper twin tooth symbolizes Right Man and the lower twin tooth symbolizes Right Woman.  Not only do the upper and lower teeth symbolize Right Man and Right Woman, but the individual teeth, which fit and function together, symbolize aspects of the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.

Central Incisor Savior Husband deliverer, protector (2 Pet 2:5); helpmate (Gen 2:18)

Molar Redeemer Husband redeemer, bread winner (Gen 3:19; Ru 3:13; wife, 1 Sa 25:18)
Wisdom Last Adam Family, child (Gen 4:1-2; Matt 1:23)

The Shulamite woman had all her teeth - "not one among them has lost her young."  This was impressive in the era before dentistry matured.  No missing teeth meant no Eclipse Testing and no breaches in the wall of national security.  The rows of teeth in the mouth are like the rocks in the wall of a city or the posts in the wall of a fort.  The rows of teeth, like the Life Line in the hand, symbolize the security of the wall of a city or national security.

The Teeth and the Nation

Teeth Hand RelationThe teeth symbolize the Right Man - Right Woman relationship in Marriage Culture and the impact of that relationship upon the nation.7  Marriage Culture is the foundation of the nation.  The astrological meaning of the individual teeth, then, point to elements and functions in the architecture of the nation as a system.  As go the teeth, so go the judge, the soldier, law enforcement officer, butcher, baker, and candlestick maker.  The teeth with their cavities, chips, caps, and root canals reveal the successes and failures in the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.  Just as the planets correspond to the teeth, they also correspond to parts of the hand, which reveal the psychological model of an individual.

Isaiah predicted the systemic failure of the Southern Kingdom of Judah in the approaching destruction of the nation by Babylon in 586 BC.

For, behold the LORD of the Armies will remove from Jerusalem and from Judah
Both supply and supplier,
The whole supply of bread, and the whole supply of water. (Isaiah 3:1)
The Lord Jesus Christ as LORD of the Armies of Israel would remove from Jerusalem and Judah the total support system of the nation.  Here, Jerusalem, the capital, is considered feminine, and Judah, the country, is considered masculine.  This is the first clue that Marriage Culture is involved.  The word for supply is the Hebrew mashe`en, which means literally a staff or support pole that holds something up.  In its figurative meaning it refers to supplies, provisions, support, i.e., goods which provide basic needs of life.  The word, "supplier," is the Hebrew mashe`enah, which is just the feminine form of the previous word with an "ah" appended.  The two words taken together are meant to include all the support for human life.  The masculine and feminine again imply Marriage Culture.

This is further explained as "the whole supply of bread."  Bread means not only bread but all the food in the nation.  Bread also symbolizes the Right Man as the bread winner (Gen 3:19).  All the water will also be removed.  Water symbolizes the Right Woman just as the Flood was sent to judge female promiscuity in the days of Noah.  However, here the absence of water symbolizes the breakdown of Marriage Culture due to the dried up female.  Thus, the beginning of the fall of the nation is the failure of the Right Man - Right Woman relationship, as symbolized by the teeth.

Isaiah continues to designate the failure of specific citizens who form the support base for the nation.  The list includes a sampling of the good and the bad in no particular order.

Isaiah 3:2-3
2 The mighty man and the soldier,
The judge and the prophet,
The diviner and the elder,
3 The captain of fifty and the highly distinguished,
The counselor and the skilled artisan,
And the expert enchanter.
These individual support functions of the national system are symbolized by astrological signs as follows:
  1. Mighty man (a soldier known for bravery)  - Almighty God in Sagittarius
  2. Soldier - Moon in Sagittarius
  3. Judge - God of the Covenants in Libra
  4. Prophet - Mediator in Aquarius
  5. Diviner - Mediator in Pisces
  6. Elder - Morning Star in Aries
  7. Captain of fifty (platoon leader) - Morning Star in Sagittarius
  8. Highly distinguished - Almighty God in Cancer
  9. Counselor - Mediator in Aquarius
  10. Skilled artisan - Sun in Cancer
  11. Expert enchanter - Mediator in Aquarius
Thus, the teeth symbolize the Right Man - Right Woman relationship, which, in turn, symbolizes the support functions of the national system.  The twelve signs of the Zodiac symbolize the twelve Tribes of Israel, which signify the foundation (or support functions) of the Client Nation.  Individual planets in the signs of the Zodiac bring additional information about the health and well-being of the Client Nation.

In Isaiah's day God was about to destroy the Southern Kingdom of Judah because rejection of Bible Doctrine led to the breakdown of Marriage Culture, which led to the failure of the Client Nation.

For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen,
Because their speech and their deeds are against the LORD,
To defy the eyes of His glory. (Isaiah 3:8)
"The eyes of His glory" is an anthropomorphism that describes God as seeing from His glory.  His glory is His bright, shining, Holy Light.  It is a component of His essence and His perfect Integrity and Love.  He sees all and knows all.  He sees the defiance of Judah, which His absolute Righteousness condemns and His perfect Justice must Judge.
The LORD enters into Judgment with the elders of His people and its leaders,
"You!  You have devoured the vineyard;
The plunder from the poor is in your houses." (Isaiah 3:14)
The Lord announces the Judgment of Israel with an eating analogy.  He says the leaders of Israel have devoured the vineyard.  The vineyard symbolizes Israel.  The leaders are analogous to animals that broke into the vineyard and devoured it.
"What do you mean that you crush My people
And grind the face of the afflicted?" says the Lord God of the Armies. (Isaiah 3:15)
The leaders "crush" the people.  This is the eating and teeth analogy.  The role of the bicuspids is to break up food before it is ground with the molars.  The policy of the leaders has crushed the people.  It has caused them suffering and affliction (Prov 22:22).  It has broken the back of the nation.  There is famine and disease, and the army is too weak to defend the nation.  After the people are crushed, the nation will be crushed.  Crushing, then, symbolizes the invasion that breaks the walls of security and injures and kills people.  Breaking the teeth is a metaphor for crushing (Ps 3:7; 58:6; Lam 3:16).  Stumbling is another metaphor for crushing (Rom 9:32).  It is like falling in combat with a debilitating injury.

And the leaders "grind the face of the afflicted."  This is analogous to the molars grinding those who are already crushed.  Grinding symbolizes the final desolation, ruin, and destruction of the nation, which occurs after the invasion (Psa 79:1).  Thus, crushing symbolizes invasion, and grinding symbolizes desolation.  Similarly, stumbling symbolizes invasion, and being caught in a trap symbolizes death and destruction (Isaiah 8:14-15; 28:13; 59:10).

Teeth in the Nation

Central Incisor Savior Deliverer, protector of freedom, rescuer, good shepherd (Deut 28:6-7; Josh 21:44; Psa 41:1; Jn 10:11)
Lateral Incisor Morning Star Authority, leadership, army commander, guard (Rom 13:1-7)
Canine Red Planet Suffering, cycles of discipline (Lev 26:14-45; Deut 28:15-68)
Bicuspid Almighty God Sovereignty (Dan 5:18-19; 1 Tim 6:15)
Bicuspid God of the Covenants Law (Ex 20:1-17; 1 Cor 6:4)
Molar Mediator Client Nation (Ex 19:6; Hos 4:6; 1 Pet 2:9)
Molar Redeemer Economy (Deut 28:3-5, 8)
(Age 17-25)
Last Adam New generation, draft age (Nu 1:3; Eph 5:31)

Teeth in Personal Punishment

The Lord Jesus Christ is portrayed as a stone of stumbling (Matt 21:42-44).  Those who stumble over Him will be broken.  If they accept His punishment, they will lose their old life but have a new Life.  However, those who reject Christ as Savior will have the stone dropped on them, and they will be scattered like dust (dying discipline).

The analogy could be expanded to cover the phases of divine discipline as warning, intensified, and dying discipline, where:

  1. Warning Discipline - Biting (incisors, canines) (Job 5:17; Psa 6:1; Gal 5:15; Heb 12:5; Rev 3:19)
  2. Intensified Discipline - Breaking (bicuspids) (Psa 73:14; 119:75; Prov 22:22; Heb 12:6)
  3. Dying Discipline - Grinding (molars) (Gen 3:19; Job 17:16; 34:15; Psa 22:15; Eccl 3:20; 12:7; 1 Jn 5:16)
The original sin was committed by eating.  That sin destroyed the first Marriage and caused The Fall, in which the Earth and everything on it was corrupted by sin.  Man died spiritually.  The animals became wild, and thorns and weeds began to grow.  Before The Fall, man's teeth symbolized the Right Man - Right Woman relationship and enabled him to eat succulent fruit.  After The Fall, man's teeth symbolized the Right Man - Right Woman relationship with its suffering and enabled him to eat the fruit of his labor.  The teeth also symbolized the impact on the environment and the nation resulting from the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.

Teeth in Categorical Punishment

Divine punishment also can be expanded from three phases to a category of seven.  The number, 7, stands for a category.  For example, there are seven days in a week, which constitutes a category of days.  Punishment based upon categories of seven, or Categorical Punishment, is emphasized in the cycles of national discipline (Lev 26:14-45), where the repeated references to "seven times" signifies a category.  The first seven teeth can, then, symbolize Categorical Punishment, with the eighth, wisdom tooth, symbolizing a new, or different, type of punishment.

God is usually the direct source of punishment.  Sickness, injuries, and a multitude of other problems from people or equipment, all could be attributed to the Sovereign Design of God in which He designed punishment into a person's life.  A person may also be responsible for his own punishment under the Law of Volitional Responsibility, in which he reaps what he sows.  He threw the boomerang, and it came back and hit him.  That kind of punishment God allows in His permissive will.

Whether God directs a person's punishment or allows it, the ultimate objective is usually to correct the person.  The unbeliever is punished to convince him of the need for Salvation.  The believer is punished to get him to return to God.  God does not punish people for sins because they were Judged on the Cross.  However, He does punish people who are outside the will of God in a state of sin.

The teeth with their symbolic planets, symbolize Categorical Punishment.  Within the category of seven types of punishment, the three phases of Warning, Intensified, and Dying Discipline correspond to the three groups of teeth.  The numerous types of punishment associated with each tooth could be quite extensive.  So, the table of Teeth in Categorical Punishment is by no means an exhaustive list of types of punishment.  Furthermore, some of the types of punishment can begin in Warning Discipline and continue into Dying Discipline.

Teeth in Categorical Punishment

Central Incisor Savior Reprove, rebuke, strike, plague, infect, expose to disease, bite; biting into sin, conception of sin, Ecumenical Babylon (X-axis) (Gen 3:6; Gal 5:15; Rev 3:19)
Lateral Incisor Morning Star Expansion of sin/disease/affliction, festering, swallowing sin, loss of love integrity, fever, inflammation, blister, sore, skin disorders, Political Babylon (Y-axis) (Job 2:7; 1 Jn 2:15)
Canine Red Planet Birth of sin, bloody, bruise, suffering, wound, pollution of the body, sowing to the wind, weakness, affliction, Cosmic Babylon (Z-axis) (Isa 1:6; Jas 1:15)
Bicuspid Almighty God Powerful, intensified punishment, sickness, debilitating injury, crushed, broken, pierced, scourged, beaten, chastened; mighty hand of God (Deut 6:21, 11:2; Rev 2:22); Evil King, giant, enemies
Bicuspid God of the Covenants Powerful arm, criminal punishment, marriage failure, corruption, injustice, lawlessness, legalism, Scar Tissue of Soul, mental illness (Deut 11:2; Rom 1:28; Eph 4:19); Prostitute of Babylon
Molar Mediator Cross, capital punishment, dying punishment, reaping the whirlwind, life hanging in balance, slaughter (Job 17:16; 33:22-23; Psa 39:10; Hos 8:7; Eccl 12:6; Luk 22:31; 1 Cor 5:5; 1 Jn 5:16)
Molar Redeemer Economic ruin, plundered possessions, raided, trapped, captured (Job 33:24; Psa 39:11; 49:7; Isa 47:1-4; Hos 8:7; Matt 25:9; 1 Tim 6:9)
Wisdom Last Adam Family punishment (Ex 12:29; 20:5; Lev 26:22; 2 Sa 12:18; Jer 31:15; Matt 2:18); labor of childbirth (Gen 3:16; Isa 26:17; Jn 16:21)

The original sin was eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden.  Eating involved biting into the fruit, chewing, and swallowing.  Man chose from his own free will (volition) to violate God's command.  The act of eating the forbidden fruit, then, was a sin that began with violating God's command, which means the sin began in Ecumenical Babylon along the X-axis in relation to God.  The man and the woman overstepped the boundary of the X-axis that God had established.  Thus, as the Central Incisor bit into the forbidden fruit, it symbolized the beginning of the process of sinning.  And, just as the Central Incisor is symbolized by the Savior Planet, the man and woman would need a Savior after they sinned.

Biting into the forbidden fruit also involved the Lateral Incisor and Canine.  After touching the Central Incisor, the fruit also touched the Lateral Incisor, which symbolizes expansion of the sin problem into the mouth.  The lateral expansion corresponds to the Y-axis of Political Babylon in relation to God.  The man and the woman overstepped their Love relationship with God and wound up in Political Babylon of the Cosmic System.  The Morning Star symbolizing the Lateral Incisor means that they had been led astray.

Similarly, the Canine was touched by the forbidden fruit and the sin process extended to the Z-axis of Cosmic Babylon.  With violations of the X, Y, and Z axes, sin had been born; a sin had been committed.  Just as the Canine is symbolized by the Red Planet, for suffering, the man and the woman suffered The Fall after eating the forbidden fruit.  They fell victim to Satan's Cosmic System.  Because they sinned, they died spiritually and were sentenced to eventually die physically.  And their sin destroyed perfect environment and propagated to the animal kingdom and plants.  Satan took over the rulership of the world, and the man and woman were booted out of the Garden.  In order to pay for their sin and for all those sins that followed, the Son of God would have to suffer the Judgment of God on the Cross in the worst suffering of all.

From the pattern of sin and punishment in the Garden, the extension of divine discipline into the human race from womb to tomb can be categorized.  For those who do not respond to Warning Discipline, the hand of God brings Intensified Discipline as symbolized by the bicuspids.  And those who refuse to respond to Intensified Discipline, will be removed in Dying Discipline (Job 33:19-22) as symbolized by the grinding of the molars.  The dying person's life hangs in the balance in need of a mediator as symbolized by the Mediator Planet and the first molar (Job 33:23; Psa 39:10).  A ransom is needed to give the dying person an extension of life as symbolized by the Redeemer Planet and the second molar (Job 33:24).  And the possessions of the dying person may be taken before or after death (also related to the Redeemer Planet) (Psa 39:11; 1 Tim 6:9).

God is fair (Jer 30:11).  All the punishment is designed to wake the dying person up, but if he absolutely refuses to listen to God and will not respond to severe punishment, God will remove him from this life.  If the person believed in Jesus Christ any time in his life, then he will go to Heaven, as symbolized by the Redeemer Planet.  However, if the person never believed in Jesus Christ, he will go to Hades and eventually to the Lake of Fire.  He will be condemned because he rejected the only Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

With Categorical Punishment completed, there is still one more tooth.  That is the wisdom tooth, which is symbolized by the Last Adam Planet.  Jesus Christ, the Last Adam, was born into an Earthly family and died on the Cross.  The grief of his family after his death was like the weeping for the firstborn of Egypt or Rachel crying for her children (Ex 12:29; Jer 31:15; Matt 2:18).  The wisdom tooth symbolizes family punishment.  The mother suffers the excruciating pain of labor at childbirth, per the curse of the Adamic Covenant (Gen 3:16).  Then, after a person dies, his family suffers.  The grief of a lost family member is some of the worst suffering that people have in this life.  Dying is easy for the person who went to Heaven, but for those left behind, it a difficult process.  Thus, the wisdom tooth tacks a new type of punishment onto the end of Categorical Punishment.

Astrological Signs in the Tabernacle

The Tabernacle
Planets in the Tabernacle

The TabernacleTabernacle Zodiac

The Tabernacle was God's dwelling place on Earth.  It was a large tent with two major parts, an Outer Court surrounded by a wall of linen, and covered tent with two rooms, a Holy Place and Holy of Holies.  Moses was told to build the Tabernacle during the wilderness wanderings of the Exodus.  The Lord gave him the design, and he was warned to be sure to make it according to the plan.  To violate God's commands for the Tabernacle meant instant death.  Obeying the design specifications was necessary because the symbolism of the Tabernacle had profound meaning.  Every item of furniture symbolized the Lord Jesus Christ and His work of Redemption for all mankind.
Hebrews 8:4b-5
4b ... there are those (Levitical priests) who continue offering gifts in conformity with the Law,  5 who (Levitical priests) serve as a shadow-model of heavenly things,  just as Moses was warned when he was about to construct the Tabernacle:  "For See," He says, "You shall make all things according to the design which was shown to you on the mountain."
The implication of Hebrews 8:4-5 is that the Levitical priests were symbols of the Lord Jesus Christ as High Priest and the Church as His priesthood.  And it follows that the Tabernacle also symbolized heavenly things, such as God's plan of Redemption for mankind, which is also portrayed in the heavens.  Since the Tabernacle and the heavens are communicating the same message, it should not be surprising that the items in the Tabernacle and the heavenly bodies are related.

When the Lord prepared the heavens and the Earth for man, they were also precisely designed to portray the story of Christ and his work of Redemption.  Twelve signs of the Zodiac became the houses or backdrops for twelve chapters in history, and ten planets that occupied those houses pointed out additional details.  The twelve signs of the Zodiac correspond to the twelve tribes of Israel that camped around the periphery of the Tabernacle, which was in the center of the camp.  Inside the Tabernacle, the articles of furniture that symbolized Christ also corresponded to the ten planets overhead.

Inside the tent that covered the Holy Place and Holy of Holies, there was only one source of light, the Golden Lampstand.  The Golden Lampstand with its seven olive oil lamps symbolized the seven major planets known to ancient astrologers, who did not have telescopes.  The Lord Jesus Christ symbolically held these seven stars in his hand.

And in His right hand He held seven stars; and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the Sun shining in its power. (Revelation 1:16)
The seven planets (called stars) were:  The Sun, Moon, Savior, Morning Star, Red Planet, Almighty God, and God of the Covenants.  The seven planets represented a category of planets; so, today's ten known planets are also included in the category.  The seven lamps that symbolized the seven planets also symbolized the seven pastors of the seven Churches of Revelation (Rev. 1:20).  The seven Churches of Revelation were the Salt of the Earth that provided prosperity to the Roman Empire, which was the first Gentile Client Nation to God after Israel.  Just as the astrological signs correspond to parts of the hand (ref. Astrological Signs in the Hand), they also correspond to parts of the Tabernacle.

Tabernacle ZodiacThe Tribes of Israel who camped around the Tabernacle symbolize the signs of the Zodiac, and the articles of furniture inside the Tabernacle symbolize the planets.  The Ark of the Covenant with its Mercy Seat also contained items that correspond to planets.  The items were:  Aaron's rod that budded, the pot of manna, and the tables of the Law (Heb 9:4).

Ark ZodiacAaron's rod symbolized the ruler's scepter of the Lord Jesus Christ.  It also corresponded to the Morning Star.  The pot of manna symbolized the impeccable humanity of Jesus Christ, who was uniquely qualified to bear the sins of the world.  It also symbolized the Last Adam Planet.  God the Father demonstrated His Love for us in delivering His Son to die as a substitute for us (Rom 8:32; John 3:16).  Since God loved us, we can respond and Love Him with reciprocal Love.  Thus, the Love of God can be reciprocated as the Love for God.  The Tables of the Law symbolize the Lord as the Lawgiver and Judge.  The second greatest commandment in the Law was called the Royal Law, which means "love your neighbor as yourself" (Jas 2:8).  This is Impersonal Love for all mankind.

The Ark with its Mercy Seat was symbolized by the Almighty God Planet with its Great Red Spot that symbolized where the spear pierced the side of Christ.  The preincarnate manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ dwelt between the Cherubs of the Mercy Seat as the Shekinah Glory.  The Ark symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ as Sovereign, King of kings and Lord of lords, who will reign from His Millennial Throne.  It symbolizes the Judge of all (Heb 12:23) and Christ as our "all and in all" (Col. 3:11).  This is His Integrity (Holiness), which is His Love.  Thus, the Almighty God Planet also symbolizes the Love of Christ and our reciprocal Love for Him.

Signs of Covenants

God created the man and woman in the Garden as witnesses in the Appeal Trial of Satan.  The man and the woman in Marriage correspond to the sign of Gemini.  God established a covenant with the man and woman to govern their lives under the rule of Heaven in the Appeal Trial.  In the Edenic Covenant man could freely eat of any of the trees in the Garden except the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, for in the day he ate from it, dying he would die (Gen 2:16-17).10

After man sinned, God established the Adamic Covenant with him.  Sin is associated with the goat, which is the sacrifice for sin.  The goat corresponds to the sign of Capricornus.  After Satan attacked Marriage, which resulted in the Flood, God made the Noahic Covenant with Noah in which He promised never again to destroy the Earth by a flood.  The Noahic Covenant, therefore, corresponds to the sign of Aquarius (Gen 9:11-15).

Later God called Abraham to make from him a new, chosen race.  Abraham was symbolized the ram (Aries) under the Abrahamic Covenant (Gen 22:13).  Then God called Moses and established the Mosaic Covenant (the Law) to make Israel a holy nation, as symbolized by Leo, the lion of Judah (Ex 19:6).  And after the Jews rejected Jesus Christ, the Church was called out to be the Royal Family of God.  Jesus Christ was a Priest, who offered Himself to God, and became High Priest of the Church,  Pisces, the fish, symbolizes a priest and corresponds to the New Covenant to the Church (Heb 6:20).

Thus, the twelve signs of the Zodiac are associated with the twelve covenants that establish God's authority over mankind throughout human history.
