Earth, Mars and the Sun all aligned last week--a rare combination of the planets that only happens once every two years.
However, this starry alignment also occurred exactly one week before all people on earth will see the first of four dark "blood moons" (over a one year period) which some Christian leaders believe may represent major spiritual events or even the Second Coming of Christ.
It was too cloudy to see the moon from my house last night.
The Bible states: "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes," [Joel 2:31].
I don't know what that means in 2014, but I don't want to be speculatively silly, dangerously cynical, or woefully apathetic.
The heavens might be speaking to us.
