Bootes, the third sub-constellation of Virgo. The Sun is in Virgo from August 23 – September 22. Virgo the Pregnant Virgin has 3 decan (faces, expressions), which are sub-constellations that makes up her complete Zodiac house.
In the heavenly ballet of the celestial orbs, the decans of the Zodiac rise every 10 days declaring their prophetic messages. September 3-September 12 Centaurus the second sign is rising. However, in this series, we have come to read some of the messages of the third decan of Virgo, Bootes.
In the first part of this series, MESSAGE FROM VIRGO, we saw the type of Mary the mother of Jesus preparing to bring forth Immanuel. In part 2, COMA SPEAKS, the man-child and Desire of all nations had been born. This was the first sub-constellation of Virgo. In part 3, CENTAURUS SUFFERING, the second sub-constellation of Virgo, we saw a picture of the suffering Messiah, death, and resurrection. We also were able to see how he has delivered us from Eternal Torment.
In just this one Zodiac sign, we have the complete picture of God’s eternal plan for the ages. We have only barely scratched the surface of the multi-layered prophetic revelation of past, present and future revealed in VIRGO. Keep in mind, as we shared in part 1 of this series; Virgo is the beginning of this mysterious circle. God declares the END from the beginning, does He not? Since we know that is true, we should be able to find some clues to the end of this 26,000 years cycles in Virgo or one of her decans (faces – sub-constellations). Also, keep in mind, each of these events we uncover, is a revelation of you.
BOOTES, THE SHEPHERD, OX DRIVER
The third decan or sub-constellation of Virgo is an image of a man. His ancient name is BOOTES. This constellation is recognized as the most ancient constellation in the heavens.
On the older planisheres, Bootes seems to be kneeling. In his right hand is a staff and in his left hand is a sickle held high. This would suggest that he is in the process of reaping a harvest. You will notice a giant star in his left knee, it is the 4th brightest star in the sky. It is Arcturus. More about him later.
In the second sub-constellation of Virgo, Centaurus; Centaurus sacrificed his immortality (life) to free Prometheus from eternal torment. This is exactly what Jesus did for us, luckily the story does not end there and the heavens and earth have been called to bear witness to this.
Bootes – “BO” in Hebrew means, Come, or Coming. Bootes, is the Coming or Return of the Messiah. There are many other stars in this constellation that further attest to this from the Hebrew and Arabic definitions. Modern astronomy has changed some of these ancient Hebrew and Arabic names of stars. For example, Mizar is now written as Izar, on most star listings. Here are some of the names of the stars that makes up the constellation of Bootes.
Bootes was called Smat by the Egyptians – one who rules. Bau – the coming one, Mizar – preserver, Al Katurops – the branch, Muphride – who separates. Arcturus – the Watcher, the bear guard.
Out of the many messages in the constellation of Bootes, we want to show you that the heavens are prophesying the end of an age and His coming. The end is being declared from the beginning. First of all, take into consideration the timing of Bootes rising in Virgo. The last day of his rising, September 22 is the Fall Equinox. Astrologically speaking, it is the end of the 6th month or cycle of man. Bootes brings about a greater shift in consciousness, which expresses itself even through the season and weather on the planet.
Bootes brings us to the “season of harvest.” It is a time of divine retribution, where we reap what we have sown. The karmic wheel that Izion was pinned to in the constellation of Centaurus mythology, now rolls in our direction. As the wheat is separated from the chaff, we must separate from everything of the lower death realm of carnality, in order to experience complete Oneness with Him. The Biblical type for this would be the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), it comes after the Fall Equinox. Atonement – the idea of At-One- Ment is followed by the harvest feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot).
“Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38
“Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud. ‘Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” Rev 14:14-15
Take another look at the image of Bootes, we see this is the image that John saw in the book of Revelation. The Cloud Rider is a type of Christ, the LORD of Harvest. He is coming, looking for the mature fruit of the earth. Chapter after chapter in the book of Revelation is filled with astro-prophetic language. However, one would have to be somewhat acquainted with the Zodiac signs to see it.
BOOTES SUBTLE CLUES
Another clue that Bootes is giving us that he is a type of the resurrected, ascended and returning Christ is not so hidden. Look at the image closely, it seems like his left foot has been injured and it twisted in an odd way. (Some maps show his foot near a rock).
In our last article, we shared how the characters of these constellations play multiple roles. Bootes apparently has been wounded in the left foot. He is hinting that he is the one that took the poisonous arrow or sting of death in his foot as Centaurus. The mythology states that Heracles accidentally shot Centaurus in the foot with a poisonous arrow. On the map of the heavens, he is seen with Crux (the Cross constellation) near his right foot/hoof.
He that was dead is now alive forevermore depicted as Bootes in the divine Zodiac. Hallelujah! This image will be played out again more clearly between the Scorpion and Ophiuchus. Ophiuchus takes the sting of the giant Scorpion to his right heel, as he crushes the Scorpion head, with his left foot.
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Genesis 3:15 (The first Messianic prophecy given in the Bible by Yahweh was astrological.)
Bootes speaks of your coming, ascending from the realm of death/carnality victoriously. You are coming to rule as the star name Smat depicts. We learned in the 2nd part of this series, Coma, that we will rule with a rod of iron. When we mention “rule” it is not in the egoic sense that we see immature, insecure, less evolved, arrogant humans seeking to dominate each other or those they feel superior to. From the Greek, “rule” (poimaino) means to govern, to furnish pasture for food, nourish, to cherish as if you would your own body; to serve. This is what rulership looks like in the Kingdom age.
Our corporate coming is the most selfless event known to mankind; it is to serve humanity. Bootes, the Good Shepherd has the staff. “Your Rod and Staff comforts me.” Psalms 23 He appears kneeling, depicting humility and intercession. He’s wounded in his foot, but nothing can stop him.
Have you been wounded? Have you experiences things in your path that try to hinder you? Have you received wounds in the house of friends or family members? Those are the wounds that are most deadly, designed to kill the false you. Centaurus received the deadly wound by his friend Heracles.
“If someone asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ he will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.” Zechariah 13:6
Friends that become your enemy or were secretly your enemy are necessary. They provoke God to prepare a table of blessings in the presence of your enemies, while causing your cup to overflow. The rite of transformation can not be executed without the soft lips of Judas pressed against your skin. Betrayal is the path that gives birth to a new beginning. Fear not, Embrace it.
“It is he who makes Arcturus (the Bear), Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.” Job 9:9
“Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth (Zodiac) in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons (the three stars in its tail)?” Job 38:32
In Arabic, Arcturus means Watcher, it is also known as, the Keeper of the heavens. Arcturus also means guardian of the bears, or bear guardian. This star is the 4th brightest in the heavens, it is very important and is mentioned in Scripture various times openly and also veiled in types.
Arcturus in Virgo, the beginning declares the end and a new beginning. The Arcturian civilizations; our brethren/sistren that live in the Arcturian star systems are considered to be the most highly enlightened in the universe. Keep in mind that Arcturus means Watcher. The prophetic books of Daniel and Enoch speaks about the Watchers. They have been in contact with humans on this planet for eons and have assisted with our spiritual and technological development.
Arcturus is considered to be a portal or gateway to many other realities of the 5th dimension and beyond. The sleeping Prophet Edgar Cayce believed that he received many of his prophetic messages from Arcturus. It is indeed possibly. The Watchers, in the Bible are also called angels, they often brought messages to humans and yet do.
There was something about Arcturus that seem to amaze or fascinate Job and the people of his day. It prompted Job to even state that the Creator made Arcturus or the Arcturian civilizations. Later God even challenges Job about his knowledge of the movement of the Arcturus Solar Systems. Modern science has discovered that this solar system seems to consist of 4 Suns and a number of planets. The Creator also gives us a powerful prophetic clue into some future events involving the Arcturian star systems and races. We will have to examine that another time, lest we get off the subject at hand.
Bootes is wounded in the left foot, but as he kneels Arcturus is revealed in his left knee. Does not the Creator teach us through our hurts and wounds? Are we not brought into a greater sense of awareness, compassion and sensitivity through the painful lessons of life? The Apostle Paul, speaking about his pain, persecution and betrayal by others said, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named…” Ephesians 3:14-15
The Watcher within is revealed through humility, prayer and seeking God.
As the lessons in classroom Earth intensifies, detachment from the illusionary world becomes inevitable for those seeking the rite of transformation. We become the watcher or observer, no longer greatly moved by what appears.
