Meanwhile, the DJIA is reaching the psychologically important 9000 mark:
Are we about to reverse into the next major wave down of the Grand Supercycle collapse?
Chris Carolan, who developed the Spiral Calendar which times long-term cycles in mass mood swings, believes this solar eclipse may be of long-wave significance:
Wednesday’s eclipse is very important from a long-wave cycle standpoint, but it will not necessarily mark a precise market turn. Nonetheless, it is a topping force at work, and with prices rising somewhat strongly into this time period, a reversal on the eclipse is possible. - Chris Carolan (Developer of the Spiral Calendar)
A discovery by Pastor Mark Biltz, a messianic Jew, has been highlighted for sometime by Prophecy in the News regarding connections between upcoming eclipses and the Jewish calendar.
While the focus has been on the correlation between eclipses and Jewish holidays in the years 2014 and 2015, Biltz also has noted that in 2008, 2009 and 2010, the 1st of Av coincides with total solar eclipses. This 'revelation' is the focus of the lead article in this month's Prophecy In The News magazine:
You may recall that when we interviewed Mark Biltz for our May 2008 issue of Prophecy in the News magazine, we noted that he had discovered three solar eclipses that would occur on each of three annual calendar dates that introduce the Jewish month of Av for the years 2008, 2009, and 2010. The first eclipse occurred on August 1, 2008. The second solar eclipse is coming up this month - on July 22, 2009, and the third will happen on July 11, 2010. Though these dates vary in our Gregorian calendar, they occur on the same calendar date in the Jewish calendar - Av 1.
Is this correlation between the 1st of Av and total solar eclipses in 2008, 2009 and 2010 of prophetic significance?
In Jewish history "The Nine Days" at the beginning of Av have marked tragic periods, particularly on the 9th:
The Nine Days are the first nine days of the Jewish month of Av. During this time, a strict level of mourning is observed, in accordance with the Talmudic dictum (Ta'anit 26): "When the month of Av begins, we reduce our joy." They are days of intense mourning culminating in Tisha B'Av which commemorates the destruction of the first and second Temples in Jerusalem. - Wikipedia
Now consider that, on June 30, 1973, there was a total solar eclipse like today's (same Saros series). Not long thereafter, just as the DJIA reached the "Magic 1000" mark, the Arabs launched the Yom Kippur surprise attack against Israel that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.
So in 1973 a total solar eclipse was a warning sign of a major tragedy that befell Israel on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur a few months later when the DJIA reached the psychologically important 1000 mark.
Last year when a solar eclipse occurred on Av 1, it was followed by Russia's invasion of Georgia on 8/8/08 which seemed to be of prophetic significance:
Notably, Georgia has one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world and last year's conflict there (which I believe was timed by the forces of the Antichrist according to astrology) began with a genocide of Jews in South Ossetia:
What about the current solar eclipse?
There are indications that Israel is about to launch an attack to destroy Iranian nuclear sites:
On January 20, 2009, I appeared as a guest in the most popular political affairs program in Macedonia ("Glasot na Narodot", or The Voice of the People). I warned that Israel is willing to wait 6 to 8 months for Obama's "diplomacy" with regards to Iran's nuclear capability to show some progress. If Iran remains recalcitrant, Israel plans to bomb two facilities in Iran as it did in Iraq in 1981, I said. Refueling won't be a problem, I assured the program's host, Slobodan Tomic: both Egypt and Saudi-Arabia offered to help.
Israel has decided to go ahead. Taking into account political, geopolitical, military preparedness, and climatic conditions, there are two windows: between July 21 and 24 and between August 6 and 8. Advance teams comprised of Mossad agents and military personnel are already on the ground in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Iraq (including in the Kurdish lands, adjacent to Turkey). - Sam Vaknin, geopolitical analyst
Maybe the Mayans had it right...
