The constellations by season of the year
This article explores constellations by season of the year. It is a continuation from our previous discussion on Seasons in the Book of Enoch.
Apostle Enoch showed that each season, month of the year, and each day is heralded by the appearance of certain stars in sequence:
11. Four conductors of them first enter, who separate the four quarters of the year.
After these, twelve conductors of their classes, who separate the months and the year into three hundred and sixty-four days,
12. These leaders of a thousand are in the midst of the conductors, and the conductors are added each behind his station, and their conductors make the separation. These are the names of the conductors, who separate the four quarters of the year, who are appointed over them: Melkel, Helammelak,
13. Meliyal, and Narel.
What is a constellation?
A constellation is a group of stars that have been named by humans. They look like particular shapes in the sky and are usually shaped like objects, animals, or persons (NASA, 2022).
The sky location of constellations are fixed and they appear only to move because the earth rotates on its axis. There are eighty-eight officially recognized constellations. (NASA, 2022).
– Heads of thousands of stars.
– Thousands of stars.
– Leaders who divide the four parts of the year.
List of the constellations that appear at the beginning of each season
The Spring Equinox occurs around March 19th or 20th each year.
NASA shows that the constellation Virgo (Virgin) appears around the time of the Spring Equinox.
Virgo belongs to the Zodiac family of constellations, along with Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Is there a difference between astronomy and astrology?
Yes, there is. I’ll quote NASA (2022) directly:
Astronomy is the scientific study of everything in outer space. Astronomers and other scientists study stars and galaxies, most of which are many light-years away from Earth. Studying the scientific properties of these objects in space helps us to understand how the universe was made, what else is out there, and how we fit in.
Astrology is not the same thing as astronomy. As a science, astronomy follows the scientific process involving evidence and data. Astrology is based on the belief that the location of certain stars and planets in the sky can predict the future or describe what a person is like. While astrology is important to some cultural traditions, its claims are not based on scientific evidence.
