Menat (ancient Egyptian mnj.t) was a name used for the goddess Hathor. With a slightly different hieroglyphic spelling, it referred to an ancient Egyptian artifact which, like the sistrum, was closely connected with the goddess Hathor. It was held in the hand by its counterpoise and used as a rattle by Hathor's priestesses. Often it was worn as a protective amulet, even by Apis bulls, the sons of Hathor.
The necklace was meant to ensure good luck and fortune and to protect against evil spirits. It was also worn for protection in the afterlife and is often found buried with the dead, given as a grave gift since Ramesside times (the Nineteenth and Twentieth Dynasties that comprise the last two-thirds of the period known as the New Kingdom). Worn by women, it was expected to foster fruitfulness and good health, while among men it signified virility.
HezeVirginis – meaning under the girdle, is where one of the two points where the celestial equator crosses the ecliptic. Ra communicated through Hathors 3rd eye. Hathor had to be stopped by Ra from destroying lower Egypt by getting him drunk on blood and beer.

April 1 (King World News) - “On this day in 1564, the government of France adopted a complete change in calendar. They opted for the new improved calendar, thus changing New Year's Day from April 1 to January 1. Many ancient cultures had traditionally set the year's beginning with spring. The rebirth of the earth was seen as a logical new beginning. But this new calendar dictated it would be January 1st so old habits were to be discarded and new concepts learned.
It was not the first time that a nation had changed its calendar. But it was the first time that a country with such a culture and a sense of humor put itself through the time warp of calendar change. So, as with any social revolution, the trendy, the with it, younger generation began crafting ways to embarrass the old Fogeys.
Even back then New Years had been a time of parties and balls. So, the new kids on the rue decided to send some aristocratic codgers invitations to the "King's New Year Masquerade". Since the King was stuck with the new calendar (he had proclaimed it) there was, of course, no Gala. But the new kids laughed and pointed at the costumed crowd of old timers who showed up for the "Ball that never was". They called the people who got “hooked” on the phony invitations “Poisson d’Avril” or “The April Fish”. That tradition we believe led to further pranks on the Fools of April.
To celebrate have a good time. But check any invitations - - and watch the calendar.
See this link re Hillel II (head of the sanhedrin and intercalation playing with lunar and solar):
and this one is more detailed re calndar etc and is like wading through treacle however. Amazing the mental gymnastics and confusion....

Date of infamy for America — April 19 and the days around it
This 'natural year opening range' has diverse — and seemingly contradictory — implications. As just explained, it is a time when much of nature comes back to life.
Paradoxically, it is when man often incites war (and the end of many lives). Nowhere has this remained more constant than in the histories of America and Israel.
I have explained this concept many times before, but it is also the single most requested compilation of analysis from readers. So, I will briefly recap it for the sake of context …
In short, I have termed the date of April 19 (sometimes extending to the days surrounding it) as the 'date of infamy' for America.
The following are just a few of the events that have occurred on this date and have impacted/governed America's destiny … beginning with our independence (and incorporating almost every major, decisive war in our history) …
Start of Revolutionary War — April 19, 1775
Battle of San Jacinto/end of Texas Revolution — April 19-21, 1836
Start of Mexican-American War — April 25, 1846
Start of Civil War — April 12, 1861
Start of Spanish-American War — April 26, 1898
Franklin D. Roosevelt announces U.S. will leave gold standard — April 19, 1933
Bay of Pigs invasion failure — April 17-19, 1961
End of Vietnam War — April 30, 1975
Operation Praying Mantis was on April 18, 1988. Attack by U.S. naval forces in retaliation for the Iranian mining of the Persian Gulf and the subsequent damage to an American warship. This battle was the largest of the five major U.S. surface engagements since the Second World War.
The April 19/20 date has pinpointed many events of great 'civil unrest' and/or domestic terrorism in the U.S. They include:
ATF raid on Covenant of the Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA) — April 19-21, 1985 (linked to the Oklahoma City bombing a decade later)
Explosion on the USS Iowa (speculated to be an act of sabotage/suicide, but never proven) — April 19, 1989
Waco/Branch Davidian raid by FBI/ATF — April 19, 1993
Oklahoma City Bombing — April 19, 1995
Columbine High School massacre — April 20, 1999
Anti-Jewish riots break out in Palestine — April 19, 1936
U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test at Semipalitinsk, Eastern Kazakhstan, U.S.S.R. — April 19, 1985
The historical date of infamy for Israel and her enemies – April 20/21
This date has also had a dramatic impact on Israel and Jews. In the last 2,000 years, Jews have had many enemies and many antagonists; but three, in particular, stand out:
Birth of Rome/Roman Empire
What do they have in common? They were all born on April 20/21.
The birth of Rome (by Romulus) is dated as April 21, 753 B.C.
The birth of Mohammad is dated as April 20, 571 A.D.
The birth of Adolph Hitler was April 20, 1889
Israel faced the Great Arab Revolt of April 19, 1936
The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began April 19, 1943
The ascension of Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt on April 18, 1954. Nasser was Israel's lead antagonist for almost two decades. He was responsible for three wars with Israel from 1956–1970. He was also responsible for the first United Arab Republic — in 1958–1961, a concept that could reach a more cohesive realization in the coming years.
To say the least, this has been a very significant period of time for centuries.

Acts 2:20 (KJV): The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come.
Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries in Puyallup, Washington click here has been sharing with us some remarkable discoveries on the blood-red moon and Jewish feast connections in the past three months. He now has some new discoveries.
I have known Mark for four years and have spoken at his church twice in the Tacoma, Washington, area. He has been an avid student and teacher of the Jewish Feasts and their awe-inspiring connections to the Lord's earthly events.
Mark said he had found my blood-red moon work interesting and began looking into possible connection to past and future Jewish Feasts at which time he found very significant connections.
I have provided blood-red moon information, and information on the coming total solar eclipses of 2008, 2009 and 2010—which all fall on the 1st of Av.
Seven back-to-back, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover and Sukkot, with the eighth time coming in 2014 and 2015
Mark found that we have had blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot on back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the final year of the Spanish Inquisition), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence), and 1967 (the Six-Day War) — some of the most significant days in Jewish history.
The others were in 162/163 A.D., 795/796 A.D., 842/843 A.D. and 860/861 A.D. We don’t have any historical connections for these years at this time, but we do know of significant Jewish persecution during the eighth and ninth centuries.
In all eight examples, the eclipses have fallen or will fall on the first day of Passover and Sukkot.
The eighth occurrence of back-to-back, blood-red moons will be in 2014–2015.
So what does the period of time from 2013 to 2015 portend for Israel and the world?
We will closely watch the peace efforts in Israel in 2008 to see if a peace deal is signed — knowing that 2015 would be seven years later. I am not date-setting, and I certainly won’t speculate, but the lineup of occurrences is very intriguing.
Solar eclipses of 2008, 2009 and 2010 — and their connection to the month of Av
Additionally, Mark has discovered through NASA that there will be three annual solar eclipses on the 1st of Av, beginning this year and running through 2010. We know that the month of Av — and especially the 9th of Av — has been the most trying period throughout history for the Jewish people.
Total solar eclipses have been a bad omen for the nations, while blood-red moons have been a bad omen for the Jewish people and Israel.

Three sets of blood-red moons that corresponded to significant events:
The Spanish Inquisition final year 1492 when the Alhambra Decree ordered all remaining Jews who would not convert to Christianity to leave Spain, the 1948 War of Independence and the 1967 Six-Day War had back-to-back, blood-red moons occur on the first day of Passover and Sukkot the following two years or beginning the same year of the 1967 Six-Day War for two years.
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 18, 1967
* First Day of Passover. April 13, 1968
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 6, 1968
What will occur in the 2013–2015 time period?
* First Day of Passover, April 15, 2014
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 8, 2014
* First Day of Passover, April 4, 2015
* First Day of Sukkoth, Sept. 28, 2015
Fall Feasts in 2015
* Rosh Hashanah (The Feast of Trumpets), Sept. 14
* Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement), Sept. 23
* Sukkoth (The Feast of Tabernacles), Sept. 28
This year's blood-red moon
During this year's Feb. 21 "blood-red" moon, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi spoke of preparation for war with Hezbollah and Hamas, and both those terror organizations leaders were bold in their rhetoric against Israel in this time of great tension.
The Temple Mount and blood-red moons
Previously, I wrote about the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and the two connections to peace talks and the blood-red moons of July 16, 2000, and Aug. 28, 2007.

The Blood-Red Moon, the Temple Mount and the Bible
Other interesting facts
* Passover is the first annual feast
* Sukkoth is the seventh and final annual feast
* Av is a month of mourning for the Jews
* The 17th of Tammuz to the 9th of Av is a 21-day period of mourning for the Jewish people (more info below)
* The next seven year cycle begins on Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 30, 2008, and ends on Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 13-14, 2015
* The sabbatical year in the seven-year cycle begins on Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 25, 2014, and ends on Rosh Hashanah on September 13-14, 2015 — the day of a partial solar eclipse
2000-year history of blood-red moons' connection to Passover and Sukkot
Mark says that during this century, the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God's holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn's Feast of Tabernacles (also called Sukkoth) occur in 2014 and 2015 on today's Gregorian calendar.
He noticed a pattern:
There were no astronomical back-to-back blood-red moon events in the 1800s, the 1700s or the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Sukkoth. The 2014/2015 events will be the last this century.
On the first of Av in 2008, 2009 and 2010, there will be total solar eclipses.
NASA: Total solar eclipses occur on these dates:
* Aug. 1, 2008 (1st of Av)
* July 22, 2009 (1st of Av)
* July 11, 2010 (1st of Av)
The 1st of Av falls on these dates in 2008, 2009 and 2010:
* Aug. 1, 2008 (5768)
* July 21, 2009 (5769)
* July 11, 2010 (5770)
NOTE: The first of Av begins at sundown and ends at sundown the following day.
The Month of Av Disaster and Consolation
by Rebbetzin Tzipporah Heller
The Month of Av Disaster and Consolation - click here.
By every measure the Jewish month of Av is tragically unique, one in which the worst disasters in our history took place.
The 15th of Av was a time of joy. In ancient times it was a day in which marriages were arranged and new beginnings celebrated. It was a time in which we began again, expressing not just who we don't want to be but who we can be.
Jewish history: Aaron died on 1st of Av (chabad.org)
Aaron died on the first day of Av (in the year 2447). He was 122 years old when he died, being three years older than Moses.
The entire people of Israel, both men and women, mourned the death of Aaron for 30 days. Everybody knew Aaron as a great lover of peace, who brought love and harmony among people and in many a home.
17 Tammuz to 9 Av — 21 days of mourning
The 21 days from 17 Tammuz to 9 Av, and the fast days of 17 Tammuz and 9 Av, are times of morning for the Jewish people.
The fast of the 17th of Tammuz, the day of the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem, marks the beginning of the "Three Weeks." The fast of the 9th of Av commemorates the day of the actual destruction by fire of the Holy Temple and is the last day of the Three Weeks. The Three Weeks is a period of mourning over these destructions.

Chart of 2014-2015: four blood-red moons and two solar eclipses
Mark prepared the following chart that shows the years 2014 to 2015.
Mark says, "You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse on Adar 29/Nisan 1 (March 20, 2015); two weeks later, a total lunar eclipse on Passover (April 4, 2015); then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse; followed two weeks later by another total blood-red moon on the Feast of Succoth — all in 2015."
BLOOD MOONS- BILTZ BOOK
Jer 34:13-17 Judgment pronounced
Lev 26:33-35- Yah foretold this
Dan 9:1 his understanding of Jer and the 70th yr/ Shemittah year/ Sabbath year becoming a year of judgment instead of blessing for those who do not obey.
Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet, broke into pieces July 16- 22, 1994.
21 fragments collided with Jupiter, had catastrophic effects. That weekend was the 9th of Av and a shemittah year. The torah portion was Deut 1-6 “These are the words. (Devarim)” As if Yah was saying, “Listen to Me: I am speaking to you about coming judgment.”
7 x 3 = 21…Biltz felt Yah was saying that the next 3 shemittahs would be times of judgment. So the next shemittah year—Sept 17, 2001, or Elul 29, day b4 rosh Hashanah, dow jones average saw its biggest drop ever, at 7%.
7 years later, Sept 28, 3002, elul 29, the day b4 Rosh Hashanah, the Dow fell 777 pts, or another 7%.
No we are coming to the 3rd and final shemittah since 1994, when Jupiter was hammered.
Could the coming blood moons signal our 3rd strike, and will we be out economically? We already see the signs of economic collapse coming, w/ America being so much in debt and our gov’t in a comatose condition.
There will not be another tetrad happening on the biblical holidays in this century.
1st 2 tetrad witnesses after Israel became a nation, and then again when they recaptured Jerusalem.
This is our 3rd warning.
Based on what happened in 1948 and in 1967, there is a high probability of a major prophetic war that will involve Israel. At least a few major biblical wars are yet to come: the Isaiah 17 war, the Psalm 83 war, the Ezekiel 38 war, and the Zechariah 14 war. War often has a huge effect on the economy, which based on the shemittah-year pattern, could be the other high-probability event.
This could be the final curtain call b4 the Great Tribulation.
