Deuteronomy Chapter 15 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "thy (Pollux) brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee (Castor), and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee" (15:12) is 2160° (6 x 6 x 60°).

Seventh Year -- Year of Release

15:1 At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.

2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the Lord's release.

3 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;

4 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the (Shekinah) Lord shall greatly bless thee in the land which the (Shekinah) Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it:

5 Only if thou carefully (lunar ears) hearken unto the (red radius) voice of the (Shekinah) Lord thy God, to (lunar eyes) observe to do all these commandments which I (red radius) command thee this day.

6 For the (Shekinah) Lord thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many (Gemini) nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many (Gemini) nations, but they shall not reign over thee.

7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy (solar or lunar) gates in thy land which the (Shekinah) Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine (lunar or solar) heart, nor shut thine (Castor) hand from thy poor (Pollux) brother:

8 But thou shalt open thine (Castor) hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.

9 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked (lunar or solar) heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine (lunar) eye be evil against thy poor (Pollux) brother, and thou givest him nought; and he (glistening star tear drops rotate) cry unto the (Shekinah) Lord against thee, and it be sin unto thee.

And thine eye be evil - An evil eye signifies a covetous disposition. See the same form of expression used by our Lord in the same sense, Matthew 6:23. If thine eye be evil - If thou be a covetous person. Evil eye is by our Lord opposed to single eye, i. e., a person of a liberal, benevolent mind. Covetousness darkens the soul; liberality and benevolence enlighten it.

10 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine (lunar or solar) heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the (Shekinah) Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.

11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine (Castor) hand wide unto thy (Pollux) brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

12 And if thy (Pollux) brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee (Castor), and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee.

13 And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him go away empty:

14 Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy (Aries) flock, and out of thy (solar) floor, and out of thy (lunar) winepress: of that wherewith the (Shekinah) Lord thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him.

15 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a (Pollux) bondman in the land of Egypt, and the (Shekinah) Lord thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee this thing to day.

16 And it shall be, if he (Hercules) say unto thee(Ophiuchus), I will not go away from thee; because he loveth thee and thine (Gemini)house, because he is well with thee;

17 Then thou shalt take an (red radius) aul, and thrust it through his (Perseus) (lunar) ear unto the (lunar) door, and he shall be thy (Perseus) servant for ever. And also unto thy (Pollux) maidservant thou shalt do likewise.

18 It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou sendest him away free from thee; for he hath been worth a (Gemini) double hired servant to thee, in serving thee six years: and the (Shekinah) Lord thy God shall bless thee in all that thou doest.

19 All the firstling males that come of thy (Taurus) herd and of thy (Aries) flock thou shalt sanctify unto the (Shekinah) Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work with the firstling of thy (Taurus) bullock, nor shear the firstling of thy (Aries) sheep.

20 Thou shalt (lunar open mouth) eat it before the (Shekinah) Lord thy God year by year in the place which the (Shekinah) Lord shall choose, thou and thy household.

21 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be (red radius cane) lame, or (lunar eyeball) blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the (Shekinah) Lord thy God.

22 Thou shalt (lunar open mouth) eat it within thy (solar or lunar) gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the (Taurus) roebuck, and as the (Aries) hart.

23 Only thou shalt not eat the (red radius) blood thereof; thou shalt pour it upon the ground as water.
