The Coming Solar Eclipse on the Shemitah

The coming Shemitah 2015 with
the partial solar eclipse will be
September 13, 2015, also known
as Elul 29.
Back in July we were talking about the coming Shemitah…back before we got off on the topic of the 9th of Av and other topics. I've discovered more about the Shemitah that I'd like to share. Did you know there is going to be a partial solar eclipse ON the day of the  coming Shemitah?

There are actually two partial solar eclipse events this year – in 2015. One is already past. (Tweet that!) It took place back on March 20th and we talked about how it was occurring on the exact day that was the mid-point of this Shemitah year. (Tweet that!)

There will also be a partial solar eclipse on the Shemitah day itself. (Tweet that!)

Again I'm learning so much from author and teacher Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. Here is a bit from his book The Mystery of the Shemitah. Keep in mind that his book came out in 2014, before this partial solar eclipse which is now in our past:

During 2015 there will be two solar eclipses. Interestingly both of them will bear significance with regard to the Shemitah's timing. One will mark the Shemitah's exact center point. The other will mark its climactic last day, Elul 29. The last time a solar eclipse fell on Elul 39 of a Shemitah year was twenty-eight years earlier in September 1987. It ushered in the greatest stock market percentage crash in American history that same month. 
(The Mystery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn, page 40.)

Notice that the previous solar eclipse on a Shemitah day was 28 eight years ago. Remember that a Shemitah is the 7th year of a 7-year cycle. So that was four Shemitahs ago. (Tweet that!) We've discuss what happened on the previous two in previous posts on this blog. See Related Articles below. If you want to know more about the happenings in 1987 I recommend you get his book.

In coming posts we'll learn more about the Shemitah from Jonathan Cahn's book.
