Acts Chapter 11 Star Chart: Clockwise from 33 AD when "came (Gemini) prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. And there stood up one of them named Agabus (Bootes with sickle), and signified by the Spirit" (11:27-28) that there would be a famine till the beginning of the reign of "Claudius Caesar" (41-54 AD) when there was "great dearth throughout all the" land of Judea and adjacent countries (Acts 11:28) is 90° months

This famine in Judea and the adjacent countries took place, A.D. 41 [Josephus, Antiquities, 20.2,5]. The population of Jerusalem were reduced to great distress, and were chiefly relieved by the bounty of Helena, Queen of Adiabene (Virgo with lunar basket), who sent in large supplies of corn, figs, and other articles of food. She was herself a proselyte to Judaism. She procured for them corn from Alexandria and a cargo of figs from Cyprus. See Suetonius, Claudius, 28; Tacitus, Ann. xii. 43; Josephus, Antiq. xx. 2. 5, Dio Cassius ix. p. 949, Euseb. H. E. ii. 8.)

Famine also occurred at Rome in the first or second year of the reign of Claudius (41 AD). It arose from the difficulties of importing provisions from abroad. It is mentioned by Dio, whose words are these: "There being a great famine, he (Claudius) not only took care for a present supply, but provided also for the time to come." He then proceeds to state the great expense which Claudius was at in making a good port at the mouth of the Tiber, and a convenient passage from thence up to the city (did, lib. Ix. p. 671, 672; see also Suetonius, Claudius, cap. 20).

Adding another 90° months we come to the full moon in Sagittarius when famine occurred in Greece. Of this famine Eusebius speaks in his Chronicon, p. 204: "There was a great famine in Greece, in which a modius of wheat (about half a bushel) was sold for six drachmas." This famine is said by Eusebius to have occurred in the ninth year of the reign of Claudius (49 AD).

Adding another 90° months, we arrive at 55 AD when the reign of Claudius ended (41-54) -- and with it the famines. Notice the lunar basket of food. The reign of Claudius (41–54) was remarkable for the famines with which various parts of the empire were afflicted. The first, second, fourth, ninth and eleventh years of this Emperor’s reign are recorded as years of famine in some district or other. Other famine years probably existed. See Suetonius, Claudius, 28; Tacitus, Ann. xii. 43; Josephus, Antiq. xx. 2. 5, Dio Cassius ix. p. 949, Euseb. H. E. ii. 8.

Agabus (Bootes) Predicted Claudius Caesar's Famine
and Queen Helena's (Virgo) (Lunar) Basket of Food

11:1 And the (Gemini & Argo) apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the (Virgo, Sagittarius & Andromeda) Gentiles had also received the (red radius) word of God.

2 And when (Argo) Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the (Gemini) circumcision contended with him,

3 Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them.

4 But Peter (red radius) rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying,

5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I (lunar eyeball) saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great (zodiac) sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:

6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine (lunar eyeball) eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth (Taurus, Aries), and wild beasts (Leo, Ursa Major), and creeping things (Hydra, Scorpio), and fowls of the air (Cygnus, Lyra, Aquila).

7 And I heard a (red radius) voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.

8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.

9 But the (red radius) voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.

11 And, behold, immediately there were three (Gemini, Perseus) men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me.

12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these (Centaur, Bootes, Sagittarius, Perseus and Gemini) six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's (red radius) house:

13 And he shewed us how he had seen an (solar golden) angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send (Gemini) men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter;

14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.

15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost (Spirit) fell on them, as on us at the beginning.

16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost (Spirit).

17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?

18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

19 Now they which were scattered abroad (North, South, East West) upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the (red radius) word to none but unto the Jews only.

20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.

21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.

22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the (Gemini, Argo) church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.

23 Who, when he came, and had (lunar eyeballs) seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost (Spirit) and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.

25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:

26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called (red radius cross) Christians first in Antioch.

27 And in these days came (Gemini) prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.

28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus (Bootes), and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

The reign of Claudius (a.d. 41–54) was remarkable for the famines with which various parts of the empire were afflicted. The first, second, fourth, ninth and eleventh years of this Emperor’s reign are recorded as years of famine in some district or other. See Suetonius, Claudius, 28; Tacitus, Ann. xii. 43; Josephus, Antiq. xx. 2. 5, Dio Cassius ix. p. 949, Euseb. H. E. ii. 8.

Adding 90° months to 33 A.D. in Gemini, we come to the beginning of Claudius Caesar's reign (41-54 AD) in 41 AD. Agabus must be Bootes with sickle. This famine in Judea and the adjacent countries took place, A.D. 41 [Josephus, Antiquities, 20.2,5]. The population of Jerusalem were reduced to great distress, and were chiefly relieved by the bounty of Helena, Queen of Adiabene (Virgo with lunar basket), who sent in large supplies of corn, figs, and other articles of food. She was herself a proselyte to Judaism. She procured for them corn from Alexandria and a cargo of figs from Cyprus. See Suetonius, Claudius, 28; Tacitus, Ann. xii. 43; Josephus, Antiq. xx. 2. 5, Dio Cassius ix. p. 949, Euseb. H. E. ii. 8.

29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the (Gemini) brethren which dwelt in Judaea:

30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
