Exodus Chapter 8 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "the Lord (sun) spake unto Moses (Hercules), Go unto Pharaoh (Cepheus), and (red radius) say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my (Gemini) people go, that they may serve me. And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with (Cancer) frogs" (8:1-2) till "Aaron (Castor) stretched out his hand over the (Aquarius) waters of Egypt; and the (Cancer) frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt" (8:6) is 209° minutes. From then till "the (Hercules and Ophiuchus) magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up (Cancer) frogs upon the land of Egypt" (8:7) is another 151°minutes. "Then Pharaoh (Cepheus) (red radius) called for Moses (Hercules) and Aaron (Ophiuchus), and said, Intreat the Lord, that he may take away the (Cancer) frogs from me, and from my (Gemini) people; and I will let the (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people go, that they may do (solar) sacrifice unto the Lord. And Moses (Hercules) said unto Pharaoh (Cepheus), Glory over me (i.e. You take the honor): when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy (Gemini) servants, and for thy (Gemini) people, to destroy the (Cancer) frogs from thee and thy (red radius) houses, that they may remain in the (Aquarius) river only? And he said, To morrow" (8:8-10), so we can add one complete 360° revolution till "the (Cancer) frogs died out of the (red radius) houses, out of the (red radius) villages, and out of the (red radius) fields" (8:13).

"But when Pharaoh (Cepheus) saw that there was respite" (8:15), "he hardened his (lunar black) heart" (8:15) at 84° minutes, "and (lunar ear) hearkened not unto them" (8:15) at 209° minutes. Then, 151° minutes later, "the (glorious solar) Lord said unto Moses (Hercules), Say unto Aaron (Ophiuchus), Stretch out thy (red radius) rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become (star) lice throughout all the land of Egypt" (8:16). "And they did so; for Aaron (Castor) stretched out his hand with his (red radius) rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became (star) lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became (star) lice throughout all the land of Egypt" (8:17) 209° seconds later. "And the (Gemini) magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth (star) lice, but they could not" (8:18) 151° minutes later.

Then "Pharaoh's (lunar black) heart was hardened" (8:19) 84° seconds later, "and he (lunar ear) hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said" (8:19) 209° seconds later. Then "the (glorious sun) Lord (red radius) said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning (sun on red radius line), and stand before Pharaoh (Cepheus); lo, he cometh forth to the (Aquarius) water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my (Gemini) people go, that they may serve me" (8:20) is 151° later at sunrise or 10 hours later if each hour is 15° (360/24 = 15). "Else, if thou wilt not let my (Gemini) people go, behold, I will send swarms of (Cancer) flies ... to morrow shall this (Zodiac) sign be" (8:21-23). "And there came a grievous swarm of flies into the (red radius) house of Pharaoh (Cepheus), and into his servants' (red radius) houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies" (8:24) is 360° or one full day back to sunrise again. "And Pharaoh called for Moses (Hercules) and for Aaron (Ophiuchus), and said, Go ye, (solar) sacrifice to your God in the land" (8:25). "And Moses (Hercules) (red radius) said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall (solar) sacrifice the abomination of the (Gemini) Egyptians to the Lord our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their (lunar) eyes, and will they not (lunar) stone us?" (8:26) Then "Moses (Hercules) said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will (red radius) intreat the Lord that the swarms of (Cancer) flies may depart from (Cepheus) Pharaoh, from his (Gemini) servants, and from his (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people, to morrow" (8:29). "And Moses (Ophiuchus) went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord" (8:30). "And the Lord did according to the (red radius) word of Moses (Ophiuchus); and he removed the (star) swarms of (Cancer) flies from Pharaoh (Cepheus), from his (Gemini) servants, and from his (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people; there remained not one" (8:31) is 360° or one day. "And Pharaoh (Aquarius) hardened his (lunar black) heart at this time also (84° minutes), neither would he let the (Gemini) people go" (8:32) at 209° minutes more.

Ten Plagues Against Ten "Gods" of Egypt

 

8:1 And the Lord (sun) spake unto Moses (Hercules), Go unto Pharaoh (Cepheus), and (red radius) say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my (Gemini) people go, that they may serve me.

2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy (red radius) borders with (Cancer) frogs:

3 And the (Aquarius) river shall bring forth (Cancer) frogs abundantly, which shall (red radius) go up and come into thine (red radius) house, and into thy (red radius) bedchamber, and upon thy (red radius) bed, and into the (red radius) house of thy (Gemini) servants, and upon thy (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people, and into thine (solar) ovens, and into thy (lunar) kneadingtroughs:

4 And the (Cancer) frogs shall come up both on thee (Cepheus), and upon thy (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people, and upon all thy (Gemini) servants.

5 And the Lord (sun) (red radius) spake unto Moses (Hercules), Say unto Aaron (Ophiuchus), Stretch forth thine (Castor) hand with thy (red radius) rod over the (Aquarius) streams, over the (Milky Way) rivers, and over the (lunar) ponds, and cause (Cancer) frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

6 And Aaron (Castor) stretched out his hand over the (Aquarius) waters of Egypt; and the (Cancer) frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

7 And the (Hercules and Ophiuchus) magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up (Cancer) frogs upon the land of Egypt.

8 Then Pharaoh (Cepheus) (red radius) called for Moses (Hercules) and Aaron (Ophiuchus), and said, Intreat the Lord, that he may take away the (Cancer) frogs from me, and from my (Gemini) people; and I will let the (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people go, that they may do (solar) sacrifice unto the Lord.

9 And Moses (Hercules) said unto Pharaoh (Cepheus), Glory over me (You do the honor): when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy (Gemini) servants, and for thy (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people, to destroy the (Cancer) frogs from thee and thy (red radius) houses, that they may remain in the (Aquarius) river only?

10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God.

11 And the (Cancer) frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy (red radius) houses, and from thy (Gemini) servants, and from thy (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people; they shall remain in the (Aquarius) river only.

12 And Moses (Hercules) and Aaron (Ophiuchus) went out from Pharaoh (Cepheus): and Moses (Hercules) (red radius) cried unto the Lord because of the (Cancer) frogs which he had brought against (Cepheus) Pharaoh.

13 And the Lord did according to the (red radius) word of Moses (Hercules); and the (Cancer) frogs died out of the (red radius) houses, out of the (red radius) villages, and out of the (red radius) fields.

14 And they gathered them together upon (red radius) heaps: and the land (red radius) stank.

\

15 But when Pharaoh (Cepheus) (lunar eye) saw that there was respite, he hardened his (lunar black) heart, and (lunar ear) hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had (solar) (red radius) said.

16 And the Lord said unto Moses (Hercules), Say unto Aaron (Ophiuchus), Stretch out thy (red radius) rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become (star) lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

17 And they did so; for Aaron (Castor) stretched out his hand with his (red radius) rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became (star) lice in man, and in beast (constellation); all the dust of the land became (star) lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

18 And the (Hercules and Ophiuchus) magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth (star) lice, but they could not: so there were (star) lice upon man, and upon beast (constellation).

19 Then the magicians (Hercules and Ophiuchus) (red radius) said unto Pharaoh (Cepheus), This is the (Scorpio) finger of God: and Pharaoh's (lunar black) heart was hardened, and he (lunar ear) hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had (red radius) said.

20 And the Lord (sun) (red radius) said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning (sun on red radius line), and stand before Pharaoh (Cepheus); lo, he cometh forth to the (Aquarius) water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my (Gemini) people go, that they may serve me.

21 Else, if thou wilt not let my (Gemini) people go, behold, I will send (star) swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy (Gemini) servants, and upon thy (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people, and into thy (red radius) houses: and the (red radius) houses of the (Gemini) Egyptians shall be full of (star) swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

22 And I will (red radius) sever in that day the land of Goshen (red radius Delta), in which my (Gemini) people dwell, that no (star) swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.

23 And I will put a (red radius) division between my (Gemini) people and thy (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people: to morrow shall this (Zodiac) sign be.

24 And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous (star) swarm of flies into the (red radius) house of Pharaoh (Cepheus), and into his (Gemini) servants' (red radius) houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the (star) swarm of flies.

25 And Pharaoh (Cepheus) called for Moses (Hercules) and for Aaron (Ophiuchus), and said, Go ye, (solar) sacrifice to your God in the land.

26 And Moses (Hercules) (red radius) said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall (solar) sacrifice the abomination of the (Gemini) Egyptians to the Lord our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the (Gemini) Egyptians before their (lunar) eyes, and will they not (lunar) stone us?

27 We will go three (red radius) days' journey into the wilderness (Zodiac divided into red radius thirds), and (solar) sacrifice to the Lord our God, as he shall command us.

28 And Pharaoh (Cepheus) (lunar mouth) said, I will let you go, that ye may (solar) sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.

29 And Moses (Hercules) said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will (red radius) intreat the Lord that the (star) swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his (Gemini) servants, and from his (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the (Gemini) people go to (solar) sacrifice to the Lord.

30 And Moses (Ophiuchus) went out from Pharaoh (Cepheus), and intreated the Lord.

31 And the Lord did according to the (red radius) word of Moses (Ophiuchus); and he removed the (star) swarms of flies from Pharaoh (Cepheus), from his (Gemini) servants, and from his (Hercules and Ophiuchus) people; there remained not one.

32 And Pharaoh hardened his (lunar black) heart at this time also, neither would he let the (Gemini) people go.
