And there shall be signs in the sun,
and in the moon,
and in the stars;
and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and of the waves;
On November 14th 2016 the whole world celebrated a remarkable natural event, known as a supermoon. After the Supermoon event on 14th November, TtCrusader wrote:

“Signs in the sun, moon and stars”: 23 Sept.2017
The above tweet from our Crusader friend, reminded me of an article I read last year in the Remnant Newspaper. (Thursday, October 29, 2015: see link – below).
“ On September 23, 2017, we will see the constellation Virgo with the sun rise directly behind it (the woman clothed with the sun). These events transpire during the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of “the woman clothed in the sun,” Our Lady at Fatima in 1917.
The Star of Bethlehem
When it appeared 2000 years ago, most people didn’t notice it. God sometimes uses the heavens to communicate with us: (Psalm 19: 1-4) The Magi, however, recognized the signs. On this occasion, there was a rare triple conjunction between Jupiter (King planet) and Venus (the motherhood planet). The well-versed Magi must have recognized this triple conjunction as a ‘giant neon sign in the heavens blinking KING-KING-KING.’
“The woman clothed with the sun”
Patrick Archbold (of the Remnant Newspaper) tells us that on November 20th, 2016* (see connection below), Jupiter will begin another journey of 9 and half of “Virgo”
He continues – “Upon Jupiter’s exit (birth), on September 23, 2017, we see the constellation Virgo with the sun rise directly behind it (the woman clothed with the sun). At the feet of Virgo, we find the moon. And upon her head we find a crown of twelve stars, formed by the usual nine stars of the constellation Leo with the addition of the planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars.”
“And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.
And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems:
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his throne. “
Also it is pointed out in the article:
“…, in this era of false mercy, …November 20, 2016*, is the very day that Pope Francis’ declared “Year of Mercy” comes to an end. The very same day is the Feast of Christ the King.” (i.e.in the Ordinary Form of the Mass calendar.)
The Fatima Connection:
TtCrusader wrote :
“On 13 October 1884, Pope Leo XIII has a vision regarding the 100 years reign of the devil – a reign designed to test/destroy the true church and humanity.
Exactly 33 years later to the day, on 13 October 1917, the great miracle of the sun occurred at Fatima.
Could this 100 year period span from 13 October 1917 to 13 October 2017?
Note that atheistic communism (the errors of Russia) was introduced into the world, via the Bolshevik revolution, just a couple of weeks after the great miracle, on 7 November 1917. (At Fatima, Our Lady warned about communism)
Mary, our Mother, stated at Fatima that her Immaculate Heart will triumph in the end. At the end of the 100 years maybe?
Let’s see how the book of Revelation, chapter 12, describes Mary:
12.1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
12.2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Fast forward to 13 October 2017, the 100th year anniversary of the great miracle, and let’s have a look at the star patterns in the sky on 24 September 2017, just a couple of weeks before the 100 years are up. ( See Revelation 12:1-5)
What do we see?
– the sun is in Virgo, the virgin, (a woman clothed with the sun)
– the moon is at the lower end of Virgo (the feet)
– 3 planets, Mercury Venus and Mars, are at the upper end of Virgo (the head), forming the crown
– we also see Jupiter in the middle of Virgo (near the belly)
Also note that we will be able to see none of this from the surface of the Earth, inside the atmosphere, because when the sun is in Virgo, it will be day time, not night time, and therefore, the background stars and planets will be in complete occultation by the brightness of the sun!
The truth is, once again, hidden in plain sight! “
Just as a star alerted and guided the 3 wise men to the birth of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and Saviour of mankind, two millenia ago, are the stars once again announcing His return, coinciding with the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Mother and Co-Redemptrix, and the start of the era of peace in the New Paradise?
Tt Crusader could be wrong, but whatever it means, it will certainly be a sign to us.
