Biblical Zodiac - Mazzaroth

The twelve major constellations of the Zodiac are referred to in the bible as the "Mazzaroth." The word "Zodiac" comes from the Greek zoad, which means "the way" or "the path." According to many Christian scholars, God depicted his story and his promise of salvation within the stars.

In order to give fuller interpretation to the Zodiac Signs, ancient astrologers subdivided each Sign into periods of approximately ten days. These divisions are known as the "decans" or "decantes" and cover modifications of individual traits, attributed to minor planetary influences, which temper or blend with the ruling influence of the period. The ten-day spans are somewhat arbitrary in order to allow for the five (and sometimes six) extra days in the year beyond the 360 days required for the thirty-six decans. [1]

Astrologers believe that each of the decans has its own individual character.

In modern times, however, the assignment of decans has changed considerably. Each sign is allocated a triplicity, such as air, water, earth or fire. Each sign is therefore subdivided into three equal parts of 10 degrees each, and these parts are referred to as decans, or decanates. 

The saga begins with Virgo (a virgin) bringing forth a son.

          Alpha - Spica (ear of corn)

Hebrew - Tsemech (Branch) - used for Messiah

Arabic - Al Zimach (branch)

Egyypt - Aspolia (the seed) 

 Branch - in right hand

 Promised Seed of the Woman - with a branch in her right hand and ears of corn in her left. 

         Decans --

Coma (infant)

Centauras (dart)

Bootes (great shephard)

Libra (balance) follows, an indication that man does not possess the power to save himself. The price is deficient.

 Hebrew: Monzamaim - the Scales, weighing 

 Stars: 

Alpha - Zuben al Genubi - price deficient

Beta - Zuben al Chemali - price which covers

Gamma: Zuben al Zkrab - price of the conflict

Decans --

Cross

Victim

Crown 

A scorpion and an archer appear together, symbolizing the battle between Satan (Scorpio the Scorpion) and Jesus Christ (Sagittarius the Archer). The intent of Satan is to sting (and thereby kill) Christ in order to thwart God's plan of salvation. The archer has his bow drawn toward Satan and the half-man half-horse depicts the dual nature of Jesus Christ: God and man.

      Scorpio Decans --

Serpent

Ophiuchus (wrestling with Serpent)

Hercules

     Sagittarius Decans --

Lyra, Eagle holding a Lyre

Alter

The dragon - the old serpent 

Next, comes Capricorn, an animal which is part-goat and part-fish. The goat was often used in sacrificial ceremonies to cleanse sins on the day of atonement. Christ was, in effect, that perfect sacrifice, adopting the sins of the world.

        Capricorn Decans --

Sagitta - Arrow

Aquila - Eagle

Delphinus - Dolphin

A water-bearer (Aquarius) is next to enter the arena, pouring out an endless supply of water.

      Aquarius Decans --

Picus Australis, the Southern Fish

Pegasus, the winged horse

Cygnas, the swan 

Within that water are the fish (Pisces) which personify Jesus Christ as one who died to save the human race. Pisces Australia (the southernmost fish) dwells in the flow. As the fish cannot survive outside the water, so this symbolism states that an individual is unable to survive outside the pouring of the Holy Spirit. Pisces is a twofold constellation, representative of both Jew and Gentile who will be bound to Satan until the return of Jesus Christ. Satan, of course, is engaged in constant battle with the Church. Early believers used the sign of Pisces to secretly identify themselves.

       Pisces Decans --

The Band

Andromeda - woman in chains

Cepheus - a crowned king 

A ram (Aries) appears, depicting the reign of Jesus who will soon return, heralding the triumph of the Church over Satan.

     Aries Decans --

Cassiopeia - a woman enthroned

Cetus, the sea monster, bound by the lamb

Perseus, armed and mighty man 

In the guise of a bull (Taurus), Christ will return to lead the charge and "gore" the evil before setting up his rule on earth.

      Taurus Decans -

Orion, a glorious prince

Eridanus - orion's river

Auriga - the shepherd 

Gemini the Twins presents a picture of the newly-acquired dual role of the savior: the suffering servant and the righteous judge.

      Gemini Decans --

Lepus - Hare or Serpent

Canis Major, Sirius, Great Dog

Canis Minor, Procyon, 2nd Dog  

A crab (Cancer) depicts a place of safety for those believers who will escape the Day of Judgment.

       Cancer Decans --

Ursa Minor - lesser sheepfold

Ursa Major - greater sheepfold

Argo - the ship 

In the form of a lion (Leo) will the victory of Christ be complete and the defeated Satan cast down. Thus in glorious triumph, does Leo step upon the head of Hydra the Serpent.
