The Cassini spacecraft was launched to Saturn on October 15, 1997, and sent a probe that landed on Titan, Saturn's moon, in Jan. 2005. We will discuss it here because key events in its orbital path may relate to Astrological events. Significant milestones in its journey, compared to Astrological or Astronomical events:
(1) A Venus fly-by occured on April 26, 1998, where it received a gravity assist from Venus. On April 23, 1998, there was seen in the east south-east early morning sky a close approach of the planets Venus and Jupiter, where they approached within 1/2 degree, and they were also very close to the moon.
(2) June 24, 1999, another Venus fly-by.
(3) On August 17, 1999, the spacecraft had a close fly-by with the earth. The Astrological significance of that date was that there was then a cross-shaped alignment of planets on the next day, August 18, and a solar eclipse over Europe on August 11, one week before. One of the much-discussed issues concerning this fly-by was that the spacecraft contains Plutonium which it uses as a power source, although Plutonium is also used in nuclear weapons.
(4) December 30, 2000, the spacecraft flew by Jupiter. On December 25 (Christmas Day) there was a partial solar eclipse seen in Canada, and on January 9, 2001, there was a total lunar eclipse over Europe and Asia.
(5) July 1, 2004, Cassini arrived at Saturn.
(6) Jan., 2005, the Huygens probe landed on Saturn's moon Titan. On October 28, 2004, there was a total lunar eclipse visible in the U.S. and Europe.

(7) Cassini orbited Saturn 32 times during its mission from 2004-2008.
The symbolic meaning of the Cassinni space journey to Saturn, may relate to the mythology of Saturn, and also Biblical prophecy which I discussed on the main page of this web site. Let us now consider the Christian mythology of the Antichrist. The last chapter of the Christian Bible, Revelation, describes a series of catastrophic events occurring on earth during a time period called the End Times. The End Time events include natural disasters, earthquakes, diseases, wars, famine, and the rise to power of a world leader known as the Antichrist, who is a Satanic imitation of Christ, and who will seem to be the saviour of mankind. The Antichrist dominates the world, the entire world will praise his achievements. This time period ends with the Battle of Armageddon, a great war. There follows a thousand year Millenium period of peace and prosperity on earth. The Antichrist is identified by the number 666, although it is not explained how this number identifies him. But note that 1998=666x3, and 1999 has 666 upside down, Also, many people believe the End-time events will occur in the years after year 2000, because this is approximately 2000 years since the birth of Christ (somewhere between 2 B.C. and 7 B.C.), and also because of the recent natural disasters and weather changes around the world. There is a statement in the Bible's New Testament, 2 Peter 3:8 (King James Version) "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" and another statement quoting Jesus Christ in Luke 13:32 "I do cures today and tommorow, and the third day I shall be perfected". Therefore, you have the two days of healing as the two thousand year Christian era, ending around year 2000, and the third perfect day is the one thousand year Millenium that follows. It is interesting that the day of the Grand Cross in the sky: August 18 1999, was the day after Cassini, carrying Plutonium, passed close to earth. It may indicate the Antichrist has risen to power in Russia, note that Vladimir Putin became Prime Minister in Russia in August 1999, and acting President in Russia as the Millennium began on 12/31/99, and was inaugurated as Russia's President on May 7, 2000, 2 days after the 5/5/2000 planetary alignment.
The Grand Cross, which is one of the most amazing astrological alignments ever seen in history, consists of: the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the sign of Leo, Mars and the Moon in Scorpio with Pluto close by in Sagittarius, Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus, and Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius. If Scorpio is considered to be the Eagle, and Aquarius the man, then we have the four beasts seen in Revelation 4 that sit at the throne in heaven, that have the faces of an eagle, a man, a lion, and a calf. This seems to indicate an important time for mankind; I think it may also relate to the rise to power of the Antichrist in year 2000 as Russian President Putin, especially since there was a cross pattern. Also, note that August 13, 1999 was Friday the 13th, said to be an unlucky day. Also note that August 9, 1999, was the 30th anniversary of the Charles Manson group's murder of Sharon Tate and others in Los Angeles, significant because of the Charles Manson group's Satanic-like cult.
As for the planet Saturn, possibly Saturn represents "Satan"-- the Antichrist is said to be a Satanic imitation of Christ, actually the son of Satan, who will seem to be the saviour of mankind, but who will lead us into a new dark age. So the journey to Saturn actually may be the journey of mankind to "Satan". If you consider the mythology of Saturn, Saturn is the Roman version of the Greek god Cronus. Cronus was an evil god who overthrew his father to gain control of the world, and swallowed his children because he feared that one of them would overthrow him. This did happen, when Cronus was defeated by his son Zeus; the Roman version of Zeus is Jupiter. So, the Cronus mythology agrees with equating Saturn with Satan. Also note that in Greek, where each letter is also a number, "Titan" totals 666, another indication of the landing on Titan being connected with the Antichrist. Note that Titan (representing the Antichrist?) revolves around Saturn/Satan.
The Cassini launch date October 15, 1997, also agrees with this, since on that day Saturn had a close approach to the moon, as seen in the sky, passing within .4 degree of the Moon, on the day of a full moon. Associating the moon with childbirth, one could associate this with the "birth" of the journey to Saturn and Satan. There is a saying, "The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions.
And as for the significance of the April 26, 1998 fly-by of Venus, a few days away from the April 23 astronomical close approach of Venus and Jupiter, this may relate to the fact that there was a similar but much closer conjunction near the time of Christ. In June of 2 B.C., Venus and Jupiter approached so close that they actually were seen to merge, this planetary conjunction may be the explanation of the Star of Bethlehem at the time of Christ. So, a similar but less close conjunction may have predicted the rise to power of the Antichrist in 2000.
Also we should consider what I call the "Southern Cross effect", which I discuss on this page of this web site. In 1987, a Supernova was seen in the Large Megallanic Cloud in the Southern Hemisphere sky. This seems to have "activated" the nearby Southern Hemisphere constellation the Southern Cross, producing a positive force in the Southern Hemisphere, which resulted in democracy coming to South American countries and positive change to South Africa. (Although in the last few years there has been a negative trend again in South America, in particular with Venezuela.) This 1987 Supernova is now brightening again from a collision of gases in space, and should be visible again to the unaided eye sometime in the future. Maybe it will be a new Star of Bethlehem, meaning that hope for the world will come from the Southern Hemisphere.
Let us consider again the Grand Cross Astrology pattern of August 1999. On August 18, 1999, there was an unusual alignment of planets in a Grand Cross shape, possibly the most unusual Astrological alignment seen in the last two thousand years. And one week before, on August 11, 1999, there was a solar eclipse seen over Europe. The Grand Cross, which is one of the most amazing astrological alignments ever seen in history, consisted of: the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the sign of Leo, Mars and the Moon in Scorpio with Pluto close by in Sagittarius, Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus, and Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius. If Scorpio is considered to be the Eagle, and Aquarius the man, then we have the four beasts seen in Revelation 4 that sit at the throne in heaven, that have the faces of an eagle, a man, a lion, and a calf, in Revelation 4:1-8 (King James Version): "a throne was set in heaven...
and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. ...and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle."
Concerning the solar eclipse over Europe on August 11, there is a prophecy by Nostradamus that is of interest. Nostradamus' prophecies were written in France four hundred years ago, and consist of short paragraphs describing many catastrophic events in the future. The prophecies are in no particular order, which makes it very difficult to intepret them; many are believed to have been fullfilled already. Some of the prophecies do have dates, including Century 10, Number 72:
"In the year 1999, in the seventh month,
from the sky there comes a great king of terror,
to bring back the great king of the Mongols,
Mars rules triumphantly, before and after"
Concerning this prophecy by Nostradamus, it is interesting that the solar eclipse passed over France on August 11, and on August 17 the Cassini spacecraft with its nuclear fuel passed within a thousand miles of earth's surface, within a day of the Grand Cross pattern. I think the significance of Cassini passing by earth within a day of the Grand Cross pattern is that Cassini may be a hologram, a symbolic parallel event, related to the rise to power of the Antichrist in Russia.
To interpret the Grand Cross Astrological pattern, consider four of the Planets that I believe correspond to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in the Book of Revelation chapter 6:
--Jupiter is the first horsemen on a white horse with a bow and a crown, the Antichrist, the conquerer, since Jupiter is King of the Gods in Mythology;
--the second horsemen on a red horse with a sword, War, would be Mars, the god of war in mythology;
--the third horsemen, on a black horse and holding scales, economic depression, would be Saturn, since Saturn in Greek/Roman/Etruscan Mythology is associated with agriculture, as well as weights and measures and coins. Saturn and the third horsemen may also represent Satan, note the similarity of the words Saturn and Satan.
--The fourth horse is a pale horse, whose rider is named Death, and Hell rides with him. This would be Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, Land of the Dead, in mythology. Pluto has a moon, Charon, with a diameter more than half of Pluto's. Charon was the boatman who brought the dead across the River Styx to the Underworld. So Pluto and its moon would correspond to the fourth horse with two riders, Death and Hell. This could be Death by Disease such as AIDS and Bird Flu.
According to Revelation, the four horsemen will ride during the End Times over a fourth of the earth.
So, the Grand Cross pattern has two of the horsemen, the Antichrist (Jupiter), and Economic Depression (Saturn), together at Taurus on one side of the cross, and the two other horsemen War (Mars) and Death (Pluto) on the other side of the cross at Scorpio and Sagittarius. It appears that these four horsemen are nailing humanity to the bars of the cross. This may mean that the four horsemen are riding during the End Times. The Plutonium on Cassini passing by earth may represent the fourth horseman, Death, riding. And the cross is a bent cross, indicating the Satanic power of that time. The second horseman War began riding with the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the U.S., the U.S. began its military response on Oct. 7, 2001. The Fourth Horseman Death has been riding because of AIDS, which is infecting millions in Africa and other areas, and also other diseases such as H1N1 Flu.
Note this large solar flare was seen on Sept. 14, 1999, shortly after the August 1999 Grand Cross pattern. We can associate this solar flare with the Antichrist rising to power in Russia.

666 and 888 degree Astrology Patterns:
666 is a number that is usually given an evil or Satanic association. This association results from the Bible's Book of Revelation, where it is the number of the Antichrist, the son of Satan. Here I will discuss Astrological 666 configurations-- occurences of three planets in Astrological signs at 6 degrees, resulting in an Astrological 6-6-6, to see if there is a pattern and connection to events at that time.
666 is mentioned in Revelation;, the Antichrist is said to have a number, 666, but it is not explained how this number identifies him. We will look for the days in this century where three planets are at 6 degrees, resulting in a 6-6-6 pattern. Also, another number of interest is 888. In Greek, the language of Revelation, each number is also a letter, and therefore a word can be associated with a number by adding the letter/numbers for the word; in this way "Jesus" totals 888. So we will also look for 8-8-8 patterns in planetary positions, expecting positive world events then. We will make note of unusual circumstances with the pattern, such as if the three numbers are for planets in three adjacent signs, or if the planets form a trine or are in conjunction in one sign. And we will try to relate these patterns to political events at that time.
December 26-27, 1997, Mars and Neptune in Aquarius at 6 degrees; Pluto in Sagittarius at 6 degrees. Note that this pattern occurred a day after Christmas, just before 1998 (666x3) began.
June 6, 1966. At 3 P.M. EST (which is .6 of the day), a chart for New York City showsVenus in Taurus at 6 degrees 58 minutes, Mars in Gemini at 6 degrees 17 minutes, Jupiter in Cancer at 6 degrees 38 minutes. So three planets are in adjacent signs at 6 degrees, which makes it truly a 6-6-6. The unusual thing is that the date is 6/6/66. Also. the Astrological chart somewhat resembles a pentagon, which is a Satanic-associated symbol, with a grouping of planets in Taurus-Gemini-Cancer at one point of the pentagon, and Pluto/Uranus in Virgo, Neptune in Scorpio, the moon in Capricorn, and Saturn in Pisces, at the four other points of the pentagon. An event of interest at that time: Ronald Reagan won the Republican nomination for governor of California, and later transformed this country and the world as President.
July 20, 1950. A Mercury in Leo, Jupiter in Pisces, Uranus in Cancer 6-6-6. Significant event: the Korean War just began.
April 10, 1944. A Mars in Cancer, Uranus in Gemini, Pluto in Leo 6-6-6. During Word War 2.
March 18, 1938. This is an unusual case, a 6-6-5 rather than a 6-6-6, but it is a triple conjunction of Mercury, Venus, and Saturn in Aries. The significant event at that time: on March 12, 1938, Hitler invaded Austria, his first takeover of another country, which made his intentions apparent to the world, and began a sequence of events that led to World War 2 in 1939. Definitely a very bad month for the world.
January 29, 1930, and July 24, 1930. 6-6-6s as the Great Depression arrived in the U.S., and Stalin rose to power in Russia.
As I said, 8-8-8 you would expect to be associated with good events; we will examine two of them:
May 23, 1945, there is an 8-8-8 with Mercury in Taurus, Saturn in Cancer, and Pluto in Leo. Germany surrendered on May 7, and on May 23 the Third Reich government was officially dissolved.
Sept. 12, 1943, an 8-8-8. Allied invasion of Italy, it was announced on Sept. 8 that Italy surrendered to the Allies.
Jan. 19, 2002. 8-8-8 degree Astrology pattern, with three planets at 8 degrees: Jupiter at 8 degrees Cancer, Saturn at 8 degrees Gemini, Neptune at 8 degrees Aquarius.
Future 666, 777, 888, 999, 11-11-11 Astrology patterns in 2011-2013:
Feb. 10 2011. A 666 degree Astrology chart, 3 planets at 6 degrees (Moon, Venus, Pluto).
June 29 2011. Close to a 666 degree Astrology chart, 3 planets at approximately 6 degrees.
March 14 2012, 999. Putin was elected Russian President again. Note that connected with this is an unusual and very ominous astrology pattern on March 14 2012 (March 15 is the Ides of March, when Julius Caesar was assassinated, "Beware the Ides of March") of 4 planets in a Grand Earth Trine, of a triangle pattern with the planets spaced at exactly 120 degrees. 4 planets at 9 degrees, in Earth signs, in a Grand Earth Trine, with Venus and Jupiter at 9 Taurus, Mars at 9 Virgo, Pluto at 9 Capricorn. So 9-9-9 which is 666 upside-down. Definitely an Antichrist-connected Astrology pattern, here possibly related to Putin reelected as Russian President.
June 19-22 and July 5-6 2012: 888 degree Astrology pattern, 3 planets at 8 degrees. Pluto - 8 degrees Capricorn, Uranus - 8 Aries, Venus - 8 Gemini.
Aug. 25 2012. 777 degree Astrology pattern. 777 is "The Cross" in Greek. So could be a positive energy. Moon - 7 Sag., Uranus - 7 Aries, Pluto - 7 Capricorn.
Sept. 4 2012: 777 degree Astrology pattern. Mars - 7 Sag., Uranus - 7 Aries, Pluto - 7 Capricorn.
Sept. 20 2012. 6-6-6 degree Astrology pattern: Mercury - 6 Libra, Uranus- 6 Aries, Pluto - 6 Capricorn.
Sept. 29 2012. 6-6-6 degree Astrology pattern: Sun - 6 Libra, Uranus - 6 Aries, Pluto - 6 Capricorn.
Dec. 2012. 888 pattern, near the Mayan calendar date Dec, 21 2012. Astrologically unusual then is that 4 planets are at or near 8 degrees on Dec. 22 2012, near Christmas: Jupiter at 8 Gemini (Air sign), Saturn at 8 Scorpio (Water sign), Pluto at 8 Capricorn (Earth sign), Venus at 7 Sagittarius (Fire sign). So Earth/Air/Fire/Water, the 4 elements.
Jan. 7 2013. Unusual 9-9-9-9 Astrology pattern, with 4 planets at 9 degrees: - Mercury 9 Capricorn (Earth sign).
- Mars 9 Aquarius (Air sign).
- Saturn 9 Scorpio (Water sign).
- Pluto 9 Capricorn (Earth sign).
And there is a Mercury - Pluto (Death) conjunction at 9 Capricorn. Note that 999 is 666 upside-down.
May 19 2013. An 11-11-11 Astrology pattern, with 3 planets at 11 degrees:
Venus 11 Gemini (Air sign).
Uranus 11 Aries (Fire sign).
Pluto 11 Capricorn (Earth sign).
Checking the Astrological angle numbers for numerical patterns shows promise as an Astrological tool.
