Prophetic Heraldry Concerning
the Twelve (Zodiac) Tribes

49:1 And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days:

2 “Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob, And listen to Israel your father.
3 “Reuben, you are my firstborn, My might and the beginning of my strength, The excellency of dignity and the excellency of power.
4 Unstable as water (Aquarius), you shall not excel, Because you went up to your father’s bed (Virgo); Then you (red radius organ) defiled it. He went up to my couch.

5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers (Gemini and Pisces); Instruments of cruelty (Andromeda's shackles and Pisces' bands) are in their dwelling place.
6 Let not my soul enter their council; Let not my honor be united to their assembly; For in their anger they (Perseus) slew a man, And in their self-will they hamstrung an ox (the tendon behind the knee of Taurus).
7 Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; And their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob (Gemini) And scatter them in Israel (Pisces).

8 “Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your (lunar crescent) hand shall be on the (lunar) neck of your enemies; Your father’s children shall bow down (rotate) before you (before Judah's royal Cepheus kings).
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp (Leo); From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
10 The (red radius rod) scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his (front and hind) feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
11 Binding (red radius cord) his donkey (Ursa Major) to the (Hydra) vine, And his donkey’s colt (Ursa Minor) to the choice (Hydra) vine, He washed his garments in (red radius line) wine, And his clothes in the (red radius) blood of grapes.
12 His eyes are darker than (sparkle from) wine, And his (lunar crescent) teeth whiter than milk.

13 “Zebulun shall dwell by the haven of the sea (Cancer); He shall become a haven for ships (Argo), And his border shall adjoin Sidon.

14 “Issachar is a strong donkey (Aries), Lying down (Aries) between two burdens (Taurus and Cetus);
15 He saw that rest was good, And that the land was pleasant;
He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden, And became a band of slaves (Pisces).

16 “Dan shall judge his people As one of the tribes of Israel.
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the path (Serpens), That bites the (lunar crescent) horse’s heels So that its rider shall fall backward (Ophiuchus).
18 I have waited for your salvation, O Lord!

19 “Gad, a troop shall tramp upon him (Perseus), But he shall triumph at last (Taurus).

20 “Bread from Asher shall be (solar golden) rich, And he shall yield royal dainties (Capricorn - Cornucopia).

21 “Naphtali is a deer let loose (Virgo); He uses beautiful words.

22 “Joseph is a (green Milky Way) fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a (lunar crescent) well; His branches run over the (red radius) wall.
23 The (Sagittarius) archers have bitterly grieved him, Shot at him (Sagitta) and hated him.
24 But his bow remained in strength (Sagittarius), And the arms (red radius staff weapons and bow and arrow) of his hands were made strong
By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel) (lunar Bethel Stone),

25 By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath,
Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
26 The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph,
And on the (solar) crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.

27 “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf (the Victim and Ursa Minor); In the morning he shall devour the prey, And at night he shall divide the spoil (Libra).”

28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them. And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.
29 Then he charged them and said to them: “I am to be gathered to my people; bury me with my fathers in the (lunar) cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, 30 in the cave that is in the (red radius line) field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite as a possession for a burial place.
31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife (Cepheus and Cassiopeia), there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife (Castor and Pollux), and there I buried Leah (Virgo).
32 The field and the cave that is there were purchased from the (Gemini) sons of Heth.”
33 And when Jacob (Aquarius) had finished commanding his sons, he drew his feet up into the bed and breathed his last, and was gathered to his people.
