It starts out on 9/7/3 BC with King planet Jupiter "crowning" King star
Regulus the 1st time as it moves by Regulus in the
constellation Leo the Lion.
Jesus is called the Lion of Judah.
The moon moves to the feet of Virgo on 9/11/3 BC The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) and she is clothed by the sun
(Rev. 12:1). This
could be the conception of Jesus, because 9 months later the brightest star ever is seen.
11/25/3 BC Jupiter retrogrades and reverses to crown Regulus a 2nd time.
Then 3/25/2 BC, Jupiter retrogrades again to crown Regulus a 3rd time.
This time as the largest and King planet Jupiter moves past Regulus on it way
to Virgo, it joins with the brightest and Mother planet Venus on 6/17/2
BC, 9 months after 9/11/3 BC, to form the brightest star
anyone has ever seen. This most likely was Jesus' birth. The Magi of Jesus' time would have
seen this "star" and started journeying towards it.
Jupiter then moves on to retrograde in Virgo and stops over Bethlehem
on 12/25/2 BC where the Magi would
have visited Jesus.

According to Rick Larson of The Star of
Bethlehem, 9/11/3BC could be the
possible conception date of
Jesus, because look what happens 9 months later. This happened on The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh
Hashanah). Notice the moon at Virgo's feet, the planets in alignment up Virgo's
arm, and King planet Jupiter, joined
with King star Regulus, in constellation Leo the Lion (King of Judah). The sun is
bathing Virgo in a glow of

9 months after 9/11/3 BC you can see the biggest
King planet Jupiter, near King star
Regulus, in constellation Leo the Lion (King of Judah), and joined with Venus the brightest and mother planet to form the
brightest "star" anyone has ever seen nor will ever see again. The magi may have
seen this "star" at Jesus' possible
birth and followed Jupiter as it moved and to stop in retrogradation
over Bethlehemon 12/25/2BC where they would
have found Him as a 6 month old toddler.

It is my understanding that Jesus, our sacrificial lamb, was
crucified around 9:00 am and died around 3:00 pm Passover
4/3/33. These planetarium software screenshots show the "world" eclipsing the
"sun" for a period of 6 hours from the view of the moon which is at the
constellation Virgo's feet.
