The Solar System

The Solar System is named for the Sun, which is its source of light.  The collection of planets, asteroids, comets, and other heavenly bodies in the Solar System reflect the glory of the Sun.  The Sun symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, the Light of the world, and the planets symbolize major aspects of the the unique Son of God and His work of Salvation on behalf of mankind.1  The Sun in all its glory is portrayed as a Bridegroom running His circuit through the signs of the Zodiac (Psa 19:4-6).  And the Moon symbolizes His Bride, the congregation of believers. The Sun travels around the wheel of the Zodiac and visits every sign once every year.

The understanding of the planets, including the Sun and the Moon, is the key to Biblical Astrology.  When a planet appears in a sign of the Zodiac, the relationship of the planet and the sign combine to reveal the meaning of the combination.  Those who attribute the definitions of the signs and the planets to mythology will only spout the lies of the devil and never arrive at the truth.  The Bible is the truth and the only source of enlightenment of God and His Creation.
Solar System
The planets of the Solar System are divided into two groups by the Asteroid and Kuiper Belts.  The planets inside the Asteroid Belt are directly associated with the Earth, and the planets outside the Asteroid Belt are associated with Heaven and God.  Since the Earth is the vantage point, it is assumed to be in the center of the Zodiac.  The seven planets that are visible from Earth correspond to the seven colors of the rainbow2 and to the seven stars in the hand of Christ (Rev 1:16, 20; 2:1; 3:1).  The Last Adam Planet, which can be seen with powerful telescopes, fits into the overall meaning of the Solar System.  In fact, all the heavenly bodies of the Solar System complete the picture, so long as their definitions are known.  But since those definitions are not always apparent, only the Sun, Moon, the seven visible planets, and the Last Adam Planet will be used in this analysis.

The first planet inside the Asteroid Belt is the Red Planet, which symbolizes the Blood of Christ, His substitutionary spiritual death for the sins of the world.  The next planet as viewed from Earth is the Morning Star, which is orange, for separation.  The Morning Star is the herald of the dawn, which is the separation between the darkness of night and the light of day.  The Morning Star is the herald of the First and Second Advents of the Lord Jesus Christ.  In the First Advent, He was separated on the Cross, where He alone paid for the sins of the world.  He will return at the Second Advent with His armies to destroy the enemies of Israel from whom He has separated.  He will also separate the sheep from the goats and burn up the unbelievers in the Baptism of Fire.  The next planet is the Savior Planet, which is nearest the Sun and can only be seen at twilight because of the Sun's glare.  It is like the Evening Star in that the purpose of the First Advent was for Christ to go to the Cross and die.  The Savior Planet symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.  The Savior saves man's soul from spiritual death.  He gives Eternal Life, which enlightens every person (John 1:4).  Thus, the Savior Planet is symbolized by the color yellow, for  Life and Light.
Solar System Colors
In the illustration at the right, the planets are arranged vertically in symbolic order.  The first three planets inside the Asteroid Belt excluding Earth, the vantage point, are the Red Planet (red), the Morning Star (orange), and the Savior Planet (yellow).  The three colors are in the correct sequential order of the rainbow.

The planets outside of the Asteroid Belt are in a different order.  They are in the order of priority.  The first planet outside the Asteroid Belt is the Almighty God Planet, which symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Almighty and Sovereign Ruler as King of kings and Lord of lords.  This planet symbolizes the strategic victory of the Cross, which was the greatest victory ever.  It is symbolized by the color violet.

The next planet is the God of the Covenants, or Ringed Planet, which symbolizes all of the covenants between God and man, including the New Covenants to Israel and the Church, as well as the Marriage Covenant between the Lord and His bride.  The planet is covered with rings more than any of the other outer planets.  The rings symbolize covenants, but they also symbolize clothing, or covering.  Man is required to obey God, which means to be under (covered by) His covenants.  This began in the Garden with the Edenic Covenant and continued with the Adamic and subsequent covenants.3  The Ringed Planet symbolizes God's covenants as well as the Queen for the King.  In the Millennium, the Queen will be Israel as the Client Nation and the Church as the Bride of Christ.  The Ringed Planet is symbolized by the color indigo.

The next two planets, the Mediator and Redeemer planets, are in the correct color order for the completion of the rainbow. The orbits of these two planets are interlocked like a chain.  The Mediator Planet symbolizes Jesus Christ as the Mediator between God and man.  He satisfied all of the Righteous requirements of God, since He was God, and all of the needs of mankind, since He was perfect humanity.  Thus, He became the Mediator between God and man at the Cross.  Since God was satisfied with Christ; therefore, the believer is reconciled to God (Rom 5:10, 11; 2 Cor 5:18-20; Col 1:20-22; Heb 9:15).  The color for the Mediator Planet is green.  The actual planet is green or has a greenish tint, depending upon the photograph.

The Mediator Planet has its axis 90 degrees from the axes of the other planets.  The axis points toward the Earth in one direction and toward Heaven in the other to symbolizes a mediator between God and man.  In other words, the axis points in the direction of a cross standing on the Earth.  Green is the middle color of the rainbow (a symbol of a mediator).  The foliage of a tree is suspended between Heaven and Earth, as Jesus Christ was on the Cross, which He called a tree (Luk 23:31).  Thus, the orientation of the axis and the color green of the Mediator Planet, both symbolize a mediator.  The crossbar of the Cross also symbolizes the Mediator.  The crossbar is suspended between Heaven and Earth.  As shown on the illustration, the planets of the Solar System form a giant Cross with the crossbar running through the axis of the Mediator Planet.

When Jesus Christ had finished His work on the Cross, He died physically and rose on the third day with a Resurrection body.  The Redeemer planet, which is blue, symbolizes Jesus Christ in His Resurrection body.  The spots that are red on the Almighty God Planet are white on the Redeemer Planet to symbolized scars that have healed.  The Redeemer purchased mankind from the slave market of sin by means of His own precious blood (1 Pet 1:18-19).  The interlocking orbits of the Redeemer and Mediator Planets symbolizes the chain of slavery, which Christ broke when He set mankind free from sin.  The Redeemer Planet is blue, which symbolizes Heaven.  Jesus Christ came down from Heaven in the incarnation and ascended back to Heaven in His Resurrection body.

Although the Last Adam planet is not needed to complete the symbolism of the rainbow and the Great Cross in the sky, it easily fits into the picture.  It is packed in ice, which symbolizes sanctification.  The Lord Jesus Christ in His humanity was perfect and without sin.  Thus, He was uniquely qualified to be a sin bearer.

The Sun symbolizes Jesus Christ, the bridegroom (Psa 19:4-6).  And the Moon symbolizes His Bride, the congregation of believers.  The Bride is the Church, since Israel rejected the Lord.  The Bride will be dressed in white for the wedding feast, which lasts for a thousand years in the Millennium (Rev 19:7).  The color of the Sun and the Moon is white, which symbolizes Sanctification.

The Sun

The Sun symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ in all His glory.  It symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom, the Light, and the Light of the world.  It also symbolizes purity.  In a Birth Chart the Sun symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Creator, and the person as His creation.  The sign in which the Sun appears is called the birth sign.  It is the most significant revelation of the person in the chart.

Ruler of the Day

The Sun sign is the most significant revelation in any chart.

And God made two great lights:  the greater light (Sun) for the rule of the day, and the lesser light (Moon) for the rule of the night; He made the stars also. (Genesis 1:16)
The Sun rules the day, which is the top hemisphere of an astrological chart.  The Moon rules the night, which is the bottom hemisphere of the chart.  Thus, the Sun and Moon are the most significant planets in the chart.

Bridegroom

The heavens are recounting the glory of God,
And the work of His hands the firmament declares. (Psalm 19:1)
"The heavens are recounting the glory of God."  The heavens reveal the glory of God.  They are constantly glorifying God.  Therefore, the ultimate meaning of the lights in the sky at any time glorifies God.  Ultimate truth must be related to God.  The firmament, vault of heaven, is a portrait of Creation that reveals the Creator.
Psalm 19:4-6
4 Into all the Earth their line has gone out,
And to the end of the world their utterances.
For the Sun He has set a tabernacle there.
5 He is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber.
He rejoices as a strong man to run the course.
6 From the end of the heavens is his rising;
His circuit unto the end of them;
And nothing can hide from his heat.
The message of the heavens goes into all the Earth.  "Their line" goes into all the Earth.  "Line" (Hebrew qan) is a measuring line for marking off a possession of land.  The signs of the Zodiac correspond to the Tribes of Israel.  Each tribe possessed an allotment of the Promised Land.  And each continent and nation on Earth is measured out per the model of the camp of Client Nation Israel.7 The Sun symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom, coming out of His bridal chamber in all His glory.  The Sun symbolically runs a circle around the Earth each day and completes the circuit of the signs of the Zodiac every year.  This is the picture of the Sun running around the wheel of the Zodiac.  When the Sun sets each day, it symbolically goes into its tabernacle (tent).

The Light

The Sun, the primary source of light for the Solar System, symbolizes Jesus Christ, our Light.  Similarly, there was only one source of light in the Tabernacle, where the Golden Lampstand symbolized Christ, our Light (Exodus 25:21).

John 1:4
4 In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of mankind.
9 There was the true Light, which coming into the world, enlightens every person.
In Jesus Christ was Eternal Life, and the Eternal Life was the Spiritual Light for mankind.  Those who believe in Jesus Christ receive Eternal Life and Spiritual Light.  Jesus Christ was the "true Light" or "Light of truth," which enlightens every person.  The Light came to Earth and lived among mankind to give everyone a choice between Light and darkness, as symbolized by the heavens (John 12:35).

Light of the World

Jesus Christ declared Himself to be the "Light of the World" (John 3:19; 8:12; 9:5; 11:9; 12:46).

Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the Light of Life." (John 8:12)
Jesus Christ was the Light of the world, as symbolized by the Sun.  Anyone who believed in Him received the Light of Eternal LIfe.

Glory

In the glory of His Resurrection body, the face of the Lord Jesus Christ shined like the Sun (Matt 17:2; Rev 1:16).

And He was transfigured before them; and His face shined like the Sun, and His garments became as white as light. (Matthew 17:2)
Pure

The Sun is the ultimate standard for purity (SOS 6:10; Mal 1:11).  Examining something in Sunlight is the test of purity.  The Christian Passover is described as being celebrated with "the unleavened bread of absolute purity" (1 Cor 5:8).  "Absolute purity" is the Greek word, eijlikrivneia, (eilikrineia), from the prefix, (ei{lh, sunshine) + (krivnw, judge, view) = absolute purity; that which is viewed in sunshine and found clear and pure, unadulterated.

The Antichrist

Satan, in his role as the counterfeit of Christ, portrays himself as the Antichrist.  He "disguises himself as an angel of light" (2 Cor 11:7) and claims to be symbolized by the Sun as attested by the numerous examples of the Sun god, such as Apollo, in mythology.  Satan, as the Antichrist, blinds the minds of the unbeliever to the true Light of the Gospel (1 Cor 4:4).

Solar Eclipses

Solar eclipses occur when the new Moon blocks the light of the Sun.  A Solar eclipse occurred during the Crucifixion of Christ.  During the Solar eclipse, the darkened Sun symbolizes death, and the restoration of light symbolizes the Resurrection.  The Solar eclipse also symbolizes Eclipse Testing8 in which the Right Woman puts out the lights of the Right Man.  The Right Man symbolically goes to the cross for her.  Since Solar eclipses occur during the new Moon, there will be double trouble in the Astrology chart.  The Moon will also be dark and, therefore, not useful as an indicator.

A Solar eclipse is also a sign that will precede the Second Advent (Isa 13:10; 24:23; Joel 2:31; Amos 8:9; Matt 24:29; Mk 13:24; Rev 6:12; 8:12).

The Sun will be turned into darkness,
And the Moon into blood,
Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. (Joel 2:31)

The Moon

The Moon is the great light that rules the night, which is the bottom hemisphere of the astrological chart.  It is second only to the Sun in significance.  The Moon, which has no light of its own, but reflects the light of the Sun, symbolizes a responder.  The Moon symbolizes the Bride of Christ, which is the Church and Client Nation Israel.  In a Birth Chart, the Moon symbolizes the Right Woman or, in the case of a woman's chart, the Right Man for the Right Woman.  And by application, the Moon may symbolize other responders, such as followers, adherents, or believers.

Church Bride of Christ

The Moon symbolizes the Church as the Bride of Christ.  After Israel rejected Jesus Christ in the incarnation, God called out the Church to be His Royal Family and Bride.  After the Resurrection of the Church (Rapture), Church Age Believers will be evaluated and receive wedding attire.

Revelation 19:7-8
7 Let us be Happy and exult,
And let us give glory to Him
Because the Marriage Feast of the Lamb has come,
And His Bride has prepared herself.
8 And she had been given fine linen, bright shining and pure in order to clothe herself, for you see, the fine linen is the righteous production of the saints.
The Marriage Feast will be celebrated for a thousand years in the Millennium.  The Bride will be clothed in "fine linen," which is white and symbolizes sanctification.  Members of the Church are called "saints," which means sanctified ones, those who are consecrated to God.  The Marriage Feast is also described in a parable in Matthew 22:2-14.

The Moon not only symbolizes the Church Bride of Christ in Heaven but the believer or congregation of believers in any age of history.  The Moon symbolized the congregation of Old Testament saints.  Jesus Christ in Hypostatis Union was the glory of God (Jn 1:14; Heb. 1:3), as symbolized by the Moon.  And the believer in the Church Age is the glory of God (2 Cor 3:18).

Israel Bride of Christ

The Moon also symbolizes Client Nation Israel as the wife of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Millennium.  After the Lord Jesus Christ redeems Israel at the Second Advent, the regathered Client Nation will symbolize His wife (Isaiah 54:5-8; Hosea 2:19).  The Lord will be the husband and Israel will be His wife.

Isaiah 54:5-6
5 "For your Husband is your Creator.
The LORD of the Army is His title,
And your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel.
He is called the God of the whole earth.
6 For the LORD calls you as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,
Even as the wife of youth when she is rejected," says your God.
The "land" of Israel will be symbolically married to the Lord in the Millennium.  The "land" refers to Client Nation Israel.
Isaiah 62:4-5
4 Men will no longer call you 'Forsaken One' (`Azubah),
And your land they will no longer call, 'Desolation' (Shemamah);
But men will name you, 'My Delight in Her' (Chephetsi-bah),
And your land, 'Married One' (Be`ulah),
Because the LORD delights in you,
And your land is married.
5 For as the young man marries a virgin,
Your children will marry you;
And as the groom rejoices over the bride,
Your God will rejoice over you.
Right Woman

The Moon symbolizes the Right Woman as the reflected glory of the Right Man.

For indeed, a Right Man (nobleman) ought not to have his head covered, existing as the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the Right Man. (1 Corinthians 11:7)
In a man's Birth Chart, the Moon symbolizes the Right Woman.  In a woman's Birth Chart, the Moon symbolizes her relationship with the Right Man.

Moon Phases and Eclipses

The Moon goes through phases from new to full, waxing and waning.  The new Moon is dark and reflects no light.  There is the possibility of Solar eclipses on the new Moon.  A dark Moon cannot be seen.  Therefore, a relationship involving a darkened Moon cannot be seen.  Other means, such as revelation from the Holy Spirit, must be employed to understand such relationships.  After the new Moon as well as before it, crescents appear.  Crescents are like the horns of a bull and symbolize Judgment.

The full Moon is the fulness of glory and symbolizes maximum responsiveness.  However, Lunar eclipses may occur during the full Moon.  A Lunar eclipse symbolizes Eclipse Testing of the Right Woman in which the Right Man puts the woman's lights out.8  The eclipse of the Moon represents the fall of the woman (darkness) in the Garden and God's grace solution, Salvation (light).  A Lunar eclipse is also a sign that precedes the Second Advent.

The influence of the Moon in a sign depends upon the phase of the Moon.  The meaning of the Moon phases are defined in the table.  The Moon phases are measured in degrees from the Sun, where New Moon is zero degrees and Full Moon is 180 degrees from the Sun in the Astrology Chart.

If the Moon symbolizes a Right Woman or a congregation, the responsiveness at New Moon would be nil compared to the responsiveness at Full Moon.  Then as the crescent Moon begins to appear, Judgment would be associated with the Right Woman or congregation.  Maximum Judgment would be at 45 degrees from the New Moon.  Upon hitting the quarter (second or third) at 90 degrees, the Right Woman or congregation would begin being fulfilled and be responsive.  Maximum responsiveness would occur at the Full Moon, unless there is an eclipse.

By way of application, the New Moon would mean no visible response.  The crescent Moon could mean good discernment (judgment) on the one hand, or, on the other hand, a tendency toward legalism, judging and being judged.  The period from the quarter to Full Moon could mean being a good responder or, on the other hand, lawlessness, or filled with the wrong thing, such as self, worry, bitterness.  People have volition.  They are free to choose, and two people exposed to the same pressure may choose to respond or react differently.  For example, a person with a tendency toward legalism, may learn to control that tendency.

Savior Planet

Savior PlanetThe Savior Planet symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world (1 Jn 4:14).  The Savior saves man's soul from spiritual death and gives Eternal Life for acceptance into the Family of God.  Adam's sin condemned man to spiritual death and separation from God because God cannot have fellowship with death anymore than light can coexist with darkness.  Only God could solve man's problem.  So, the Son of God was sent to Earth on a mission in the First Advent to pay for the sins of the world.
For the wages of sin is (spiritual) death, but the free gift from God is Eternal Life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
In order to die as a substitute for man, God's Son was given a human body.  Jesus Christ became the God-man in Hypostatic Union via the virgin birth (Isa 7:14; Matt 1:24-25).  Being born without a human father, He did not have the sin of Adam.  Thus, He was uniquely qualified to be the sin bearer to pay for sins and become the Savior of all mankind.  The Savior Planet symbolizes Jesus Christ as the Son of man, who died for sin to provide Salvation to all mankind (John 3:16, 36; Titus 2:13-14).
For you see, in this manner, God Loved the world, that He gave His uniquely born Son that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have Eternal Life. (John 3:16)
In keeping with His purpose, the Lord Jesus Christ veiled His deity and lived as a man.  He complied with the Father's authority and accepted the unjust sentence of death in order to be Judged for the sins of the world.  This is the Doctrine of Kenosis, which is symbolized by the Savior Planet.  The planet is nearest the Sun and can only be seen at twilight because of the Sun's glare.  It is like an Evening Star in that the purpose of the First Advent was for Christ to go to the Cross and die.

The Savior Planet is the planet nearest the Sun, which is the source of light for the Solar System.  Jesus Christ, the Savior, gives Eternal Life, which enlightens every person (John 1:4, 9).

John 1:4, 9
4 In Him was Eternal Life, and the Life was the Light of mankind.
9 There was the true Light, which coming into the world, enlightens every person.
The "true Light" refers to Jesus Christ, the Light of the world (Matt 4:16; Jn 8:12; 9:5; 12:46).  Jesus Christ was the Spiritual Light from God.  He had the Light of the Gospel.  Those who believe in Jesus Christ receive Eternal Life.  They are delivered from the darkness of spiritual death into the Light of Eternal Life (2 Tim 1:10).
1 Jn 5:11-12
11 And this is the deposition, that God has given us Eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has Eternal Life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have Eternal Life.
Ruler of Virgo

The Savior Planet is the ruler of Virgo, the Virgin.  Since Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, the Savior Planet also symbolizes the Son (child) with His mother.  Thus, the planet may be associated with mother-child relationships in general.

Morning Star

Morning StarThe Morning Star symbolizes the First and Second Advents of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The prophecy of the First Advent was "a star shall come from Jacob" (Num 24:17).  The birth of Christ was heralded by a star in the east (Matt 2:2).  At the Second Advent, the Lord will be visible like the Morning Star as He circles the globe with His armies of angels and the Church.  The Morning Star planet, which is a shade of orange, also symbolizes separation.

The Morning Star is the herald of the First Advent of Christ, when Light came into the world (Matt 4:16; Jn 3:19; 12:46).  That Light was the Spiritual Light of the Lord Jesus Christ, "the Light of the world."

“The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light,
And to those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death,
Upon them a Light dawned.” (Matthew 4:16)
Jesus Christ called Himself the "Morning Star."
“I, Jesus, have sent My messenger to declare these things to you for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright Morning Star.” (Revelation 22:16)
When the Lord returns at the Second Advent "every eye will see Him" (Rev 1:7).  He will circle the globe and be visible like the Morning Star as He returns with His armies to destroy the enemies of Israel and set up His Millennial Kingdom.

Jesus Christ also called Himself the "root of David."  The root of a tree symbolizes separation.2   The Morning Star is the herald of the dawn, which separates daylight from night (Gen 1:4).  At the Frist Advent, when Jesus Christ was bearing the sins of the world on the Cross, the Father separated from Him, and Jesus alone suffered for sin (Matt 27:46).  At the Second Advent the Lord Jesus Christ will separate from the enemies of Israel and kill them all by Himself (Rev 19:21).  Then, as the "root and descendant of David," He will ascend to the Throne of David and rule for a thousand years.

Peter demonstrated his understanding of the Second Advent and the Morning Star.

Yet, we possess a more reliable prophetic doctrine, to which you do well to pay attention, as a lamp shining in a squalid place, until the day dawns, and the Morning Star arises in your hearts. (2 Peter 1:19)
The "lamp shining in a squalid place" refers to the revelation of the Gospel at the First Advent (Isa 9:2; Matt 4:16; Luke 1:78-79; Eph 5:8).  "Until the day dawns" refers to the Glory of the Lord on Zion at the Second Advent (Is 60:1; Mal 4:2) and to the enlightenment of Christ in the heart of the Church Age Believer (Rom 13:12-13; 2 Cor 4:6; Eph 5:14; 1 Thess 5:5; 1 Jn 2:8).  "The Morning Star arises in your hearts" symbolizes Jesus Christ at the Second Advent (Rev 22:16).  Knowing and being in tune with this doctrine is Harmonious Rapport with the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Morning Star in the heart also refers to decoration of the winner-believer of Church Age (Rev 2:28).

Order of the Morning Star

One of the highest decorations of the winner believer in the Church Age is the Order of the Morning Star, which is the highest decoration for Spiritual Warfare.  The winner believers of Thyatira, who passed the testing they faced, will receive the order of the Morning Star.3

Revelation 2:26-28
26 'Furthermore, the winner, even the one who keeps My assignments until the end (of life), to him I will give authority over the nations; 27 And he shall rule them with an iron scepter as vessels of clay are shattered, just as I also have received authority from My Father.  28 Furthermore, I will give him the order of  the Morning Star.
The winner believers of Thyatira will rule and reign with Christ in the Millennium.  Furthermore, they will receive the Order of the Morning Star, The order of the Morning Star corresponds to a crown in significance.  The reward takes its name after the Lord Jesus Christ in His glory at the Second Advent when He will return as conqueror (Revelation 22:16).  In the Millennium those with the Morning Star will rule and reign with Christ.  In the Eternal State the reward will include:
  1. The privilege of access to the Garden of God and eating from the Tree of Life (Revelation 2:7; 22:2).
  2. The new title of knighthood on the white pebble (Revelation 2:17).
  3. The pillar in the temple, for maximum historical impact (Revelation 3:12).
Satan the Counterfeit Morning Star

It is not surprising that Satan, who tries to usurp the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, would be the counterfeit Morning Star.

"How you have fallen from Heaven,
O shining one, son of the dawn (Morning Star)!
You have been cut down to the Earth,
You who have laid low the nations! (Isaiah 14:12)
This verse describes Satan, who was kicked out of Heaven after he rebelled against God.  The verse also describes the king of Babylon, who was inspired by Satan, and the future antichrist (Dan. 11:36; 2 Thess. 2:4).  Satan was the most beautiful angel with bright shining light.  He was called the "shining one (implying star), son (implying sun) of the dawn," which refers to the Morning Star.  Satan was not the Morning Star because he fell to the Earth, but he was like the Morning Star in his glory.  He was the highest ranking angel and keeper of the Throne Room.  He was next to God, who was the Light.  Satan was the son of the dawn (Light).  He was a son of God.

Ruler of Aries

The Morning Star is the ruler of Aries, the Ram.  Aries symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ as the leader of the flock at the Second Advent when He will return leading the Church.  He will be leading the greatest armies in the history of warfare.  Then He will shepherd Israel in the Millennium as the greatest ruler in history.  The Morning Star is a powerful sign of battlefield royalty of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Red Planet

Red PlanetThe Red Planet symbolizes the Blood of Christ and the blood of the enemies of Israel killed by Christ at Armageddon.  The Blood of Christ is a metaphor4 for His substitutionary spiritual death on the Cross for the sins of the world.  The blood of the enemies of Israel killed at Armageddon will run up to the horses' bridles for 183 miles (295 km) (Rev. 14:20).  The victory of the Cross was achieved by the suffering of death of Christ.  The victory at Armageddon will be achieved by killing the enemies of Christ.

The metaphor of the Blood of Christ (Acts 20:28; Rom 3:25; 5:9; 1 Cor 10:16; Eph 2:13; Heb 9:14; 1 Pet 1:2, 19; 1 Jn 5:6; Rev 1:5) is based upon the blood of animal sacrifices.  The animal sacrifice symbolized the promised Redeemer who would die as a substitute for mankind and pay for the sins of the world.

Hebrews 9:13-14
13 For you see, if the blood of goats and bulls, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have become ceremonially unclean, sanctify for the purification of the flesh,
14 How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself blameless to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
The Blood of Christ does not refer to His literal blood.  He did not bleed to death on the Cross.  Before He died physically, He said, "'It is finished!'  Then having bowed His head forward, He delivered over His spirit" (John 19:30).  After He had finished bearing the sins of the world, He said, "It is finished!"  Then He delivered His spirit over to the Father.  "His spirit" refers to His soul and human spirit, both of which went to Paradise under the escort of Michael, the Archangel.  His human spirit and soul did not split apart and go in different directions.  Later, after Jesus was already dead, a Roman soldier pierced His side with a spear, and out came "blood and water," or blood clots and serum (John 19:34).  The blood had already separated from the serum, which was further evidence that He was already dead.  Therefore, the soldiers did not break His legs to hasten death.  This was further evidence that He did not bleed to death on the Cross.

Animal sacrifices began immediately after man sinned.  After Adam and Eve believed in the promised  Redeemer, the Lord sacrificed an animal and made clothes for Adam and Eve from the animal skin.  Abel offered animal sacrifices because he was a believer and understood the Redemption solution.  The animal sacrifices did not save anyone.  Salvation was by faith in the Lord, who would provide the Redemption solution.  So all of human history looked forward to the coming Savior and His work of Redemption.

When the Lord Jesus Christ came to be the efficacious sacrifice for the sins of the world, He spoke of His blood at the Last Supper.

Matthew 26:27-28
27 And after taking a cup and giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; 28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins.
The cup of wine (unfermented grape juice) symbolized the Blood of Christ.  The Blood of Christ was a metaphor for His death on the Cross to provide forgiveness for sins.  Drinking the cup symbolized identification with Christ in His payment for sins on the Cross.  And the Blood of Christ (His death on the Cross) became the basis for the New Covenant to the Church, which has since been inaccurately called the New Testament.

God knew when He created man that He would sin.  The first man, Adam, was made from earth.  Adam means red, or ruddy.  Sin is symbolized by the color red.  God knew that the only permanent solution to sin would require the substitutionary spiritual death of the Son of God - i. e. the Blood of Christ.  So, when the Solar System was created, the Red Planet was placed next to Earth to symbolize the Blood of Christ, which would be required to provide the Redemption solution for the sins of mankind.

1 Peter 1:18-19
18 Having known that you were not redeemed with perishable things, such as silver or gold, from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the Blood of Christ!
Jesus Christ redeemed mankind from the slave market of sin.  The price of redemption was not something perishable, like silver or gold.  It was imperishable, the Blood of Christ, which was His substitutionary spiritual death for sins.  Literal blood would have been perishable.  The Blood of Christ is a metaphor.  It is symbolized by the color red and by the Red Planet.

Ruler of Leo

The Red Planet is the ruler of Leo, the Lion.  Leo symbolizes Jesus Christ, the King of the Jews who purchased redemption at the Cross with His blood (Heb 9:13-14; 1 Peter 1:18-19).  Jesus Christ, the King, is revealed in the Gospel of Matthew (Matt 21:4-9).  Leo also symbolizes Jesus Christ, the King of kings as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who will return at the Second Advent, conquer the enemies of Israel (Rev 5:5; 14:20; 17:14; 19:11-21), and rule as King.  The blood will run up to the horses' bridles for 183 miles at Armageddon.

Almighty God

Almighty GodThe Almighty God Planet, the biggest and boldest planet in the Solar System, symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ as Almighty God, the highest, sovereign authority over all Creation.  It symbolizes the victory of the Cross, which was the greatest victory ever.  The Great Red Spot symbolizes the place where the Roman spear pierced the side of Christ.  The planet also symbolizes the subsequent promotion of the Lord Jesus Christ in Resurrection to "King of kings and Lord of lords" (1 Tim 6:15).  It symbolizes the royalty of Jesus Christ as King of the Jews and the Millennial King.  And it symbolizes the perfect Justice of God, which was satisfied with the Judgment of Christ for the sins of the world on the Cross.

Highest, Sovereign Authority

The Lord Jesus Christ is not only the Creator of all things, but God the Father has given Him Sovereign Authority over all things.  In Isaiah's prediction of his birth, He was called "Mighty God" (Isa 9:6).  After His Resurrection, He said, "All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and upon the Earth" (Matt 28:18).  He is "the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords" (1 Tim 6:15).  Because of the promotion of Jesus to "King of kings and Lord of lords" everyone (man, living, dead, angels) will recognize His authority, bow the knee, and acknowledge Him as Lord (Phil 2:9-11).

The preincarnate Lord Jesus Christ was the Most High authority and most highly exalted above all others (John 17:5).

For You, LORD, are Most High over all the Earth;
You are highly exalted above all other gods. (Psalm 97:9)
However, in order to pay for the sins of the world, He temporarily veiled His glory, became a man, and went to the Cross (Phil 2:6-8; Heb 2:7).  After He won the great victory on the Cross, God promoted the Resurrected Lord Jesus Christ to the highest authority and returned His glory (Phil 2:9; Heb 2:7-9).

Seated on the Throne of God

Because of His strategic victory on the Cross, the Lord Jesus Christ was promoted to "King of kings and Lord of lords" and seated on the Throne of God (Eph 1:20-22; Heb 10:12-13; Rev 3:21).  God the Father cannot sit because He is everywhere, imminent and transcendent.  Only the Son can sit.  The Lord Jesus Christ is seated on the Throne of God, where He rules over the Angelic Conflict waiting for His enemies to be conquered.

Hebrews 10:12-13
12 But this One, when He had offered one sacrifice as a substitute for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 From that time onward waiting until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet.
Justice

The perfect Justice of God was satisfied in the victory of the Cross symbolized by the Almighty God planet.  The Judgment of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world completely satisfied God's absolute Righteousness and perfect Justice (Psa 89:14; 97:1-9).  The satisfaction of God's Righteousness and Justice at the Cross enabled Him to pronounce Justification for all mankind (Rom 3:24-26; 5:18).

Great Red Spot

The Great Red Spot symbolizes the wound in Christ's side, which was pierced by the Roman spear (John 19:34).  This symbolized the puncture wound of a slain sacrifice.  In the Throne Room in Heaven, John saw the symbolic representation of Christ as "a Lamb standing, as if slain" (Rev. 5:6, 9, 12).

Millennial King

The Almighty God planet also symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, who will rule as King over all the Earth from the Throne of David in the Millennium (Psa 89:3-4, 146:10; Isa 24:23; 28:5; 62:3; Jer 23:5-6; 2 Ti 2:12; Heb 1:8; Rev 3:21; 20:6).

Then the Moon will blush and the Sun turn pale;
For the LORD of the Armies will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
And before His elders will be glory. (Isaiah 24:23)
The large, bold Almighty God planet symbolizes the sovereign power and might of the Lord of the most powerful armies, who have conquered the Earth and annihilated the enemies of Israel.  Israel will be the Client Nation and Jerusalem the capital city where the Throne of David is located.  Before the Lord will be Jewish elders who will reflect His glory like the planets reflect the light of the Sun and like the Angelic Kings of Arms that surround the Throne in Heaven5 (Rev. 4:4).

The Lord Jesus Christ will be the supreme ruler.

But with reference to the Son, He says,
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
And the scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. (Hebrews 1:8)
The Lord Jesus Christ will be promoted over angels following His strategic victory of the Cross.
You have loved Righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Because of this, God, Your God, has anointed You (Christ)
With the oil of exultation beyond Your angelic associates. (Hebrews 1:9)
The Lord Jesus Christ in His Resurrection Body will rule over all Creation (man and angels) from His Millennial Throne.  Not only will the Lord reign with sovereign power and protect security, but the whole Earth will blossom and thrive in the greatest prosperity outside of Heaven.  The grass will be greener, the animals healthier, and the people more prosperous than ever.  The great prosperity of the Millennium is also symbolized by the Almighty God planet.

Satanic Counterattack

As would be expected, Satan has concocted lies about the Almighty God planet.  In spite of the various names of demon gods attributed to the planet, the heart of Satan's lie about the planet is centered around Baal.  Baal is the symbol of Satan as a Demon Commander.  Instead of the Lord of the Armies, Satan has invented Baal as the commander of the demon armies.  Baal is portrayed as the giant in keeping with the giant planet.  In Satan's army a giant is a demon commander, and Baal is perhaps the most famous demon commander.  Baal is presented as both the god of war (for conquering the world) and the goddess of love (for ruling in the false millennium).

Ruler of Taurus

The Almighty God planet is the ruler of Taurus, the Bull and symbol of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Redeemer, who will return as a mighty warrior at the Second Advent to redeem Israel (Heb 10:13-14) and establish worldwide prosperity for a millennium.

God of the Covenants

The God of the Covenants, or Ringed Planet, symbolizes the laws of God over mankind from Eden to Last Judgment.6  The planet with its covering of rings is undoubtedly the most beautiful of the planets.  A ring symbolizes a covenant, and the covering of rings symbolizes the covenants that the Lord has established with mankind, beginning with the Edenic Covenant in the Garden and ending with the Last Judgment for unbelievers at the end of the Millennium.   The covering of rings also symbolizes Unlimited Atonement and Propitiation, which were provided by the Lord Jesus Christ at the Cross.  The rings symbolize the clothing of Christ's Resurrection body.  And they symbolize Eternal Security based upon the promise of God.

The Covenants

As soon as man was created, God established a covenant with him in the Garden.  In the Edenic Covenant, man was allowed to freely eat from any tree in the Garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen 2:16-17).  When man violated the covenant, he sinned and died spiritually.  The preincarnate Lord Jesus Christ promised sinful man a Savior to pay for his sins.  Adam and Eve believed in the Savior who would come, and they received Eternal Life.  The covenant with Adam and Eve was the Adamic Covenant.  Over the ages, the Lord established other covenants with man, including the Noahic, Abrahamic, Davidic, Mosaic, and New Covenants to Israel and the Church.6  The Adamic Covenant was fulfilled when Jesus Christ came to Earth and died on the Cross as a substitute for the sins of the world.

Atonement and Propitiation

The covering of rings of the Ringed Planet symbolizes the handling of the sins of the world by Jesus Christ on the Cross.  The association between covering and handling of the sin problem is symbolized by the Mercy Seat in the Tabernacle.  Mercy Seat is the translation of the Hebrew tr#P)K^ (kapporeth), which means the propitiatory (Latin propitiatorium), an atoning covering.  The word is from the Hebrew rP#K!(kipper), meaning to cover up sin or guilt, propitiate, atone, expiate.  However, the concept of atonement, propitiation, and expiation in the Bible never meant to cover over sin in the sense of burying it or sweeping it under the rug.  The sins of the world were Judged and paid for on the Cross so that God the Father was satisfied, or propitiated, and the sins did not exist any longer (were canceled).  They were not simply covered.  So, even though the word covering is used in the definition of atonement and propitiation, it is purely symbolic or metaphorical and not meant to be literal.  References to covering sin or guilt (as in Rom 4:7) are also symbolic or metaphors.

The covering of rings of the Ringed Planet symbolizes unlimited atonement and propitiation (Dan 9:24; Rom 3:25; Heb 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 4:10).  The words, atonement and propitiation, both come from the same Hebrew root and convey satisfaction.  The payment for sins had to satisfy the Righteousness and Justice of God the Father.  Unlimited atonement means satisfaction (or cancellation) of the debt of all sins, even those of the unbeliever.

and He Himself (Christ) is a propitiation as a substitute for our sins; but not for ours only, but also as a substitute for the sins of the entire world. (1 John 2:2)
The Bible clearly teaches unlimited atonement.  Because Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the entire world, sin is not an issue for Salvation.  Salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ.

The Queen

The beautiful Ringed Planet is larger than the other planets except for the Almighty God planet.  Situated next to the Almighty God planet, the Ringed Planet appears to symbolize the Queen of the King (Almighty God planet).  The Queen represents Client Nation Israel and the Bride of Christ, the Church.  In the Millennium when Jesus Christ rules the world from the Throne of David, Israel will be the Client Nation (God's chosen priest nation) and the Church will be the Bride of Christ.  Both Israel and the Church in the Millennium are described as brides arrayed in royal splendor.

Client Nation Israel will symbolically be married to the Lord (Isaiah 62:1-7; Hos 2:19-20).  Zion's marriage to the Lord is described as:

Men will no longer call you 'Forsaken One' ( Azubah),
And your land they will no longer call, 'Desolation' (Shemamah);
But men will name you, 'My Delight in Her' (Chephetsi-bah),
And your land, 'Married One' (Be`ulah),
Because the LORD delights in you,
And your land is married. (Isaiah 62:4)
The Church will be the Bride of Christ in the Millennium (Eph 5:27; Rev 19:7-8).
Revelation 19:7-8
7 Let us be Happy and exult,
And let us give glory to Him
Because the Marriage Feast of the Lamb has come,
And His Bride has prepared herself.
8 And she had been given fine linen,
Bright shining and pure in order to clothe herself,
For you see, the fine linen is the righteous production of the saints.
The Clothing of the Resurrection Body

The covering of rings of the Ringed Planet symbolizes the clothing of the Resurrection Body.  A preview of the glory of the Christ's Resurrection Body was seen on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matt 17:2; Mk 9:3; Lk 9:29).  And John described his visions of Christ's Resurrection Body (Rev 1:13; 19:13, 16).

Eternal Security

The rings of the Ringed Planet also symbolize Eternal Security, which is a binding commitment of the Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father (John 10:28-29).  Those who receive the gift of Salvation can never lose it.

Ruler of Libra

The God of the Covenants, Ringed Planet, is the ruler of Libra, the Scales, which symbolizes Christ, our justification, who satisfied the perfect Justice of God by being judged for the sins of the world (Rom 5:8-9).

Mediator Planet

MediatorThe Mediator Planet symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Mediator between God and man on the Cross (1 Tim 2:5-6).  Man was separated from God because of sin.  A Righteous God could have nothing to do with sin.  Jesus Christ paid for man's sins on the Cross and canceled the debt of sin.  This made it possible for the believer to be reconciled to God (Rom 5:10, 11; 2 Cor 5:18-20; Col 1:20-22, Heb 9:15).  Jesus Christ as God satisfied all of the requirements of Righteous and Justice of God.  As man, he satisfied all of the needs of mankind.  Therefore, He became the Mediator between God and man.

Interlocking Orbit

The orbit of the Mediator Planet interlocks with the Redeemer Planet.  Interlocking orbits symbolizes a chain and slavery.  The two verses, 1 Timothy 2:5-6, explain the relationship of the two planets.

1 Timothy 2:5-6
5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and mankind, the man, Christ Jesus,
6 who gave Himself as a ransom (Redeemer), a substitute for all, the testimony to be given at the right time.
Mankind was hopelessly locked into slavery to sin.  A Mediator and a Redeemer were required to free mankind from bondage to sin.  The Mediator (verse 5) satisfied the requirements of God and mankind.  The Redeemer paid the price, the ransom, for the sins of mankind.  The Redeemer offered Himself as a sacrifice, a substitute for all, in order to free mankind from sin.  To be a Mediator, Jesus Christ had to be both God and humanity combined in one unique person.  To be a Redeemer, Jesus Christ had to be able to be sacrificed and die as a substitute for all mankind.  Jesus Christ met all the requirements and paid the price at the right time to save mankind from the consequences of sin.  Jesus Christ was the Mediator of the Redemption solution (Isa 1:18).

The Mediator and Redeemer also show up in sequential verses in Job 33:23-24.

Job 33:23-24
23 If there is an angel as a mediator for him,
One out of a thousand,
To declare to man what is right for him.
24 He is gracious to him and says,
"Deliver him from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom (Redeemer)."
Here the Angel of Jehovah, the preincarnate Christ, is the Mediator between God and man.  The Mediator declares to man "what is right for him," which means the right way, Salvation.  The Mediator is gracious to the man and delivers his soul from death (the pit).  He declares, "I have found a ransom," meaning, the price for his soul, or a Redeemer.

Axis Tilted 90 Degrees
Solar System Colors
The axis of the Mediator Planet is 90 degrees from the axes of the other planets.  Thus, there is a giant cross in the Solar System formed along the axes of the other planets, with the crossbar extending through the Mediator Planet (reference previous explanation).  Jesus Christ, as the Mediator between God and mankind, was suspended on the Cross between Heaven and Earth.  Furthermore, the color of the Mediator Planet is green, the color of the foliage of a tree, which is the part suspended between Heaven and Earth.  Jesus call the Cross a green tree (Luk 23:31).  It is also called a tree in other scriptures (Gal 3:13; 1 Pet 2:24).  The color green symbolizes Happiness and Blessing.  Happiness and the tree analogy are symbolized in the description of Christ, the Mediator, on the Cross in Hebrews 12:2.

Be looking away to Jesus, the author and finisher of our doctrine, who because of the Happiness set before Him, endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2)
Mediator of New Covenant to the Church

The Lord Jesus Christ was also the Mediator of New Covenant to the Church (Heb 8:6; 9:15; 12:24).  The New Covenant to the Church is the mystery doctrine and Spiritual Life of the Church Age.  The mystery doctrine is explained in the 21 epistles to the Church in the New Testament, which is more appropriately called the New Covenant.

The Lord Jesus Christ initiated the New Covenant to the Church in the Last Supper (Luke 22:20).

And the cup He took likewise after they had eaten, saying, "This cup is the New Covenant consecrated by means of My blood, which is poured out as a substitute for you." (Luke 22:20)
In the Last Supper, Jesus Christ foretold the Church Age, which would begin after His death on the Cross.  The cup of wine symbolized the blood of Christ.  "Blood which is poured out" is an idiom for spilling blood and murder.  It refers to the death of Christ on the Cross.  However, the blood of Christ is also a metaphor for His substitutionary spiritual death.  He died as a substitute for all mankind.  His physical blood was not shed until after He had finished bearing the sins of the world and after He was dead.

The sacrifice of Christ on the Cross fulfilled the promise of the Adamic Covenant that the seed of the woman would pay for sins.  This ended the animal sacrifices, which were symbolic of the coming Savior and His work of Redemption.  With the offering of Christ on the Cross, there was no more need for the offerings of the Mosaic Law.  The interim period of the Gospels ended with the Cross, and the Church Age under the New Covenant to the Church began at Pentecost.

Jesus Christ was the Mediator of the New Covenant to the Church by means of His death on the Cross.

And because of this, He is the Mediator of a New Covenant, in order that since a death has occurred for the purpose of Redemption of the transgressions against the first covenant (Mosaic Law), those who have been called (to salvation) may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. (Hebrews 9:15)
The New Covenant to the Church with its unique Spiritual Life rescinded and superseded the Old Covenant (Mosaic Law) to Israel.  The reality replaced the shadow.
But now He has obtained a more excellent High Priestly ministry, by so much as He also is the Mediator of a better covenant, which has been ordained on the basis of better promises. (Hebrews 8:6)
The unique spiritual life of history belongs to the New Covenant to the Church under the sponsorship of the High Priesthood of Jesus Christ.

Characteristics of a Mediator

A mediator brings two parties together.  He represents the interests of both in order to bring them together.  This is the opposite of a judge, who divides by condemning one or exonerating the other.  An arbitrator may act as a mediator, but he also has the power to judge.  Moses was the mediator of the Mosaic Law.  He received the Law from the Angel of Jehovah and took it to the people.

What is the purpose of the Law, then?  It was added because of transgressions, having been ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator, until the Seed should come to Whom the promise was made. (Galatians 3:19)
Paul pointed out that Moses, as the mediator of the Mosaic Law, was inferior to Christ, the Seed of the woman and Mediator of the New Covenant to the Church.
Now a mediator is not for one party only, but God is one in essence. (Galatians 3:20)
A mediator is not the mediator for one party only.  The word translated "for" can be translated "of" or "for."  This means a mediator is not the mediator of one party or for the other party.  A mediator is a go-between who represents the interests of both parties.  Jesus Christ, as both God and man in Hypostatic Union, was the best mediator between God and man.  Moses was inferior to Jesus Christ.

An intercessor may be a mediator.  An intercessor goes between two parties at variance for the purpose of reconciling them.  An intercessor could also be one who pleads on behalf of another.  Here the role of mediation is weakened.  Examples include an advocate or a lawyer.

Moses and Aaron acted as mediators when they interceded between the Lord and the congregation of Israel when the Lord was about to destroy the people (Numbers 16:20-22).  David and the elders interceded as mediators to keep the Angel of Jehovah from destroying Jerusalem (1 Chron 21:16).  Balak hired Balaam as a mediator to curse Israel.  In a strange twist Balaam's donkey became a mediator between the Angel of the Lord and Balaam (Numbers 22:23-30).  The donkey saved Balaam's life.

Mediator of Marriage

The Divine Institution of Marriage began in the Garden of Eden when the Lord built a woman for Adam and brought her to him.  The Lord was the Mediator of the first Marriage.  Following the divine order of precedent, the Lord continued to create the Right Woman for the man and bring her to him.  After the Fall, the Lord mediated the first Marriage dispute.  He also acted as Arbitrator and Judge.  The Lord is still the Mediator of Marriage, and He has not authorized anyone else to help.  Those who assume the authority over Marriage, whether to marry or dissolve a marriage, have no such authority from scripture.

Ruler of Pisces

The Mediator Planet is the ruler of Pisces, the two fish, which symbolize the priest who intercedes for the believer.  The Lord Jesus Christ as High Priest of the Church is both Mediator and Intercessor for the believer.

Application

The Lord Jesus Christ is the Mediator between God and mankind.  However, there are many types of mediators in the scripture.  And by application, there are many more types of mediators in life.  When the Mediator Planet appears in a sign, the definition is first scriptural, but there may also be an application in life.  For example, the Mediator Planet in Aquarius symbolizes Christ, the Mediator of Salvation (1 Tim 2:5).  It may further symbolize an ambassador for Christ who takes this message to unbelievers.  And it may symbolize a prophet, who speaks the Lord's commandments to believers.  By application, then, in life this could symbolize an ambassador or a representative.

Redeemer Planet

The Redeemer Planet symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, who purchased mankind from slavery to sin by His own blood (Eph 1:7).  A redeemer is someone who pays a ransom, or price of redemption.  Israel was redeemed on many occasions by the Lord, the Redeemer,  He redeemed Israel from slavery in Egypt.  The price of redemption included the destruction of Egypt and the deaths of the first born in Egypt.  The Church Age believer in a body under bondage to the Old Sin Nature, will be redeemed with a Resurrection body at the Rapture.  And Israel will be redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ at the Second Advent from the enemies of the world.

The Redeemer Planet is blue, which symbolizes Jesus Christ in His Resurrection body.  Blue is the color of the sky, which symbolizes Heaven.  Jesus Christ came down from Heaven in the incarnation and ascended back to Heaven in His Resurrection body.  The spots that are red on the Almighty God Planet are white on the Redeemer Planet to symbolized scars that have healed.  After Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the world with His own precious blood (His substitutionary spiritual death) on the Cross, He died physically and was resurrected on the third day.  The resurrected Christ, who won the victory over death, saves and gives Eternal Life.  The blue Redeemer Planet with its white spots symbolizes the resurrected Christ, who redeemed all mankind from slavery to sin.

Interlocking Orbit

The orbit of the Redeemer Planet interlocks with the Mediator Planet.  The interlocking orbits of the Redeemer and Mediator Planets symbolizes the chain of slavery, which Christ broke when He set mankind free from sin.  As previously explained for the Mediator Planet, there are two sets of verses which describe the relationship of the Redeemer and the Mediator (1 Timothy 2:5-6; Job 33:23-24).  The chain of slavery to sin, which began when Adam sinned, has been passed down to the entire human race throughout history.  The only exception was the Lord Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin without an human father and, therefore, without the sin of Adam.  The perfect humanity of Jesus Christ was uniquely qualified to bear the sins of the world and be the Redeemer of all mankind.

Jesus Christ the Redeemer

The Lord Jesus Christ redeemed mankind from slavery to sin by means of His substitutionary spiritual death on the Cross.

In whom (Christ) we have Redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His Grace.  (Ephesians 1:7)
The price of redemption was the blood of Christ.  The blood of Christ is a metaphor for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross.  He did not bleed to death.  He was still alive after bearing the sins of the world.  Then He dismissed His own spirit.  His side was pierced after He was already dead, and out came blood and water.
1 Peter 1:18-19
18 Having known that you were not redeemed with perishable things, such as silver or gold, from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the Blood of Christ!
Redeemer of Israel from Egypt

The Lord redeemed Israel from slavery in Egypt (Ex 6:6; 15:13; Deut 7:8; 32:6; 1 Chr 17:21; Neh 1:10).

"Say, therefore, to the sons of Israel, 'I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. (Exodus 6:6)
The redemption of Israel from slavery in Egypt was a great example of redemption.  The Redeemer who led Israel out of Egypt, also redeemed mankind from bondage to sin.

Later, under the Mosaic Law, when a Jew sold himself into slavery, he had the right of being redeemed from slavery by his brothers (Lev 25:48-49).

Redeemer of the Soul

The Lord was recognized in Israel as the Redeemer of the soul (Psa 78:35).  Redeeming the soul is Salvation.  The soul is redeemed from Sheol, which symbolizes the grave, death, and Hades (Psa 49:15; 130:8; Hos 13:14).  The soul of the Old Testament believer would not be left in Sheol, but the person would be resurrected and live with the Lord.  Job recognized his Redeemer as being alive (Job 5:20).  Redeeming the soul from Sheol also meant delivering a person from physical death (Psa 69:18; 119:134, 154; Job 5:20).

Day of Redemption of the Church

The Church Age believer in a body under bondage to the Old Sin Nature, will be redeemed with a Resurrection body at the Rapture (Eph 1:13-14; 4:30).

Israel Redeemed at Second Advent

Client Nation Israel, which was redeemed on many occasions by the Lord, the Redeemer, will be redeemed by Him at the Second Advent from the enemies of the world (Isa 41:14; 44:6, 21-24; 49:7).

Isaiah 44:6, 23-24
6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel
And his Redeemer, the Lord of the Armies: ‘I am the first and I am the last,
And there is no God besides Me.

23 Shout for joy, O heavens, for the LORD has done it!
Shout joyfully, you depths of the earth;
Break forth into a shout of joy, you mountains,
O forest, and every tree in it;
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob
And in Israel He shows forth His glory.
24 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the one who formed you outside of the womb,
"I, the LORD, am the maker of all things,
Stretching out the heavens by Myself,
And spreading out the Earth all alone,

The Lord Redeemer, who returns with great power and might at the Second Advent, is called "the Mighty One of Jacob" (Isa 49:26).

Husband Redeemer

The Redeemer Planet symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ as both the Husband Redeemer of Israel and the Right Man Redeemer of the Church.  At the Second Advent, the Lord Jesus Christ will symbolize the Husband and Redeemer of Client Nation Israel (Isa 54:5-8).

Isaiah 54:5-6
5 "For your Husband is your Creator.
The LORD of the Army is His title,
And your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel.
He is called the God of the whole earth.
6 For the LORD calls you as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,
Even as the wife of youth when she is rejected," says your God.
The Church, however, is still the Bride of Christ.  The Lord Jesus Christ is the symbolic Right Man (Redeemer) of the Church Age Believer (2 Cor 11:2).  The Church Age Believer who forsakes all others for the Lord is like a pure virgin, who is betrothed to the Lord, her Right Man (1 Cor 7:32-35).  The Marriage will be consummated at the Resurrection (Rapture) of the Church when the Lord returns for His Bride.

Ruler of Capricornus

The Redeemer Planet is the ruler of Capricornus, the Goat, which symbolizes unlimited atonement through the sin offering of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world.  The price of redemption was the Blood of Christ.

Application

The meaning of the word, redeem, in general, is to purchase.  It was used for paying a ransom to free a slave.  Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of mankind from slavery to sin.  By way of application, there are many different kinds of redeemers in the world.  See Meaning of Planets in Signs for a summary.

The Redeemer Planet in Aquarius symbolizes the Good News of the Redeemer and His work of Redemption, but it may also apply to the service other redeemers or guarantors.  It applies to those who give refreshment or hospitality.

The Redeemer Planet in Aries may apply to an entrepreneur or chief executive.  In Cancer, it may apply not only to Eternal Redemption and the spoils of victory, but to a bank, trustee, or depositary.  In Capricornus, the Goat (a desert creature), it may apply to water in the desert (Isa 43:20) or to an oasis, well, or cistern.  And this could be associated with sex (Gen 30:38).

The Redeemer Planet in Gemini, the Twins, and symbol of Marriage, could apply to the husband as the redeemer of the wife in Marriage (Ruth 3:13; Eph 5:25).  Since Gemini could also symbolize a witness, it could apply to a redeemer attorney or a bondsman.  Since Gemini could also refer to the double blessing, it could apply to blessing, riches, and prosperity.

The Redeemer Planet in Leo could apply to the king or the government as the redeemer of the citizens from the enemies of the state.  In Libra, it could apply to a ransom, a fine, or to a liberator.  In Pisces, it could apply to giving to the Church or paying tax to the state.

The Redeemer Planet in Sagittarius could apply to financing, supplying, or quartering an army (1 Sa 25:27).  It could apply to being redeemed from war, famine (Job 5:20), or from the enemy (Job 6:23).  It could also apply to a band of robbers.

The Redeemer Planet in Scorpius, the Scorpion, and symbol of the evil one applies to the love of money, the root of all evil.  Examples include Judas and Balaam.  It applies to the payoff of a criminal, to a racketeer or prostitute, and to bribes or tips.

Last Adam

Last Adam The Last Adam Planet symbolizes the impeccable human nature of Jesus Christ, who was without sin and uniquely qualified to bear the sins of the world.  It symbolizes Jesus Christ as the Son of Man (John 3:16).  As the symbol of Christ our Sanctification, the planet is symbolized by the color white.  However, the actural color of the planet is the color of flesh, corresponding to the human body of Christ in Hypostatic Union.  A lighter area contains the image of a foot, corresponding to the victory of the cross promised in the Adamic Covenant (Gen 3:15).  After Adam sinned, he was promised a Savior who would pay for his sins.  In order to fulfill the Lord's Covenant with Adam, Jesus Christ came into the world, born of a virgin and without sin (2 Cor 5:21; Heb 4:15; 1 Pet 1:19; 2:22; 1 Jn 3:5).
I Corinthians 15:45, 47
45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.”  The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
47 The first man is out from the Earth, made of earth; the second man is out from Heaven.
He was undiminished deity and perfect humanity combined in one unique person in Hypostatic Union.  As a man, He was able to die as a substitute for the sins of all mankind.  As God, He was able to satisfy the Righteous requirements of the Father.  He became the sin bearer on the Cross and paid for the sins of all mankind (Rom 5:14-19).
So therefore, as through one transgression (Adam's Original Sin), there resulted condemnation to all mankind; even so through one judicial sentence there resulted Justification of Eternal Life to all mankind. (Romans 5:18)
After Adam sinned, his sin was passed down to all his descendants (all mankind).  "Through one judicial sentence" God would sentence His Son to death as a substitute for the sins of all mankind.  So, the Lord Jesus Christ was sent on a mission to planet Earth to handle the Judgment for sin (John 10:36; 1 Cor 15:22).
For as in Adam all die, even so by agency of Christ shall all be made alive. (1 Corinthians 15:22)
Obedience to Death

As the Last Adam, Jesus Christ was a man who would die.  Although He was God and man in Hypostatic Union, it was the human nature of Jesus Christ that was visible in the Last Adam.  His deity was veiled, which is called the Doctrine of Kenosis.

Kenosis comes from the Greek kenovw (kenoo), meaning to empty or divest of privileges.  The doctrine means that during the Hypostatic Union, the Lord Jesus Christ voluntarily restricted the independent use of His deity to comply with the will of God the Father.  He veiled His preincarnate glory and submitted to the authority of the Father.  He took upon Himself the robe of flesh to go to the Cross and pay for the sins of the world.  His deity was veiled, and the divine glory in His humanity was not seen.  He had the power to walk off the Cross, but He voluntarily stayed there until His sacrifice was complete (Phil 2:6-8).

In order to go to the Cross, Jesus Christ submitted to the laws and government of mankind.  He endured the betrayal of a disciple, a mob incited by Satan, false imprisonment, and illegal trials.  He suffered physical and psychological abuse at the hand of tyrants and evil men.  He was beaten, scourged, condemned, and crucified for claiming to be the Son of God.  Through it all, the Last Adam, quietly submitted in order to fulfill His purpose and bear the sins of the world.  As the sin bearer, He had to die, not just physically, but as a substitute for the sins of the world.

Ruling Planet

The Last Adam planet is the ruler of Gemini, the Twins, and symbol of Marriage and the family.  Jesus Christ was the son who was promised to Eve to be the Savior of all mankind (Gen 3:15; 1 Tim 2:15).  Note, the Savior Planet rules Virgo, the Virgin, because the Savior was the son of the woman without an earthly father.  However, the Last Adam grew up in a family with a mother and step-father.

Application

The meaning of the Last Adam as the Son of Man and impeccable humanity of Jesus Christ, the mortal and sin bearer, has many applications.  See Meaning of Planets in Signs for a summary.

The Last Adam in Aquarius symbolizes being made Spiritually alive by faith in Christ.  It includes the doctrines of the Hypostatic Union of Jesus Christ the Son of Man.  And by application it applies to being saved or revived.
