Don Cerow will be presenting a synopsis of his new book, The 8th Seal, in which he examines early periods of history and Old Testament prophesies— particularly in the books of Isaiah and Daniel—that mirror astronomical and predictive methods. Observation of the heavens allowed the sage(s) of Revelation to predict future events, just as patterns in the sky at the time of the birth of Jesus allowed the Three Wise Men to arrive at the manger.
The Book of Revelation documents both preceding and later history—the transition from the Greece to Rome, the evolution of the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire, the great waves of plague and invasion that caused the final fall of Rome, the eighth and ninth century Viking invasions, and the split between Roman and Orthodox Churches.
Every age is dramatically different, leading to different philosophies and tasks. We are now entering the Age of Aquarius, a period in which scientific thinking and new knowledge will inform the validity of faith. The author demonstrates this with carefully delineated astronomical information. He describes the characteristics of this new era and helps provide the guidance we will need to order our lives in harmony with such grand cosmic principles and events.
In a very real sense, the planet’s transition into the Age of Aquarius at this time represents the end of the world as we know it. We are at the beginning of a series of new possibilities, new aims, and new realities that offer new ways of development. This book offers both hope and caution for the future.

Author of the groundbreaking Ibis Press title When the Dragon Wore the Crown, Cerow’s focus has been on the Ancient Mysteries and how they evolved from the study of the sky. In 2003, he reconstructed an early model of Stonehenge in a story that was picked up by the New York Times. In 2005, he produced a multi-media show for Fiske Planetarium at the University of Colorado, pushing back the limits of what our forbearers knew about the heavens. In 2012, he lectured at CPAK (the Conference for Precession and Ancient Knowledge). Writing a weekly column for various newspapers since 1983, Don has produced shows for radio and television and taught at colleges, universities, and planetariums across the country.
