The 7 stars

The mystery of the seven stars, which thou sawest in my right hand and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches. And the seven candlesticks are the seven churches. (Apocalypse 1:20)

Sacramentum septem stellarum, quas vidisti in dextera mea, et septem candelabra aurea: septem stellæ, angeli sunt septem ecclesiarum: et candelabra septem, septem ecclesiæ sunt.  (Apocalypse 1:20)

I slept at 4am yesterday as i was listening attentively to the story of my maternal aunt, told by my mum! haha, actually she repeated it quite a number of times already.

It was about my maternal aunt who died 7 mths after she was born into earth. She died the 7th month, the 7th day, and 7 was a very significant number to her. After she died, some buddhist or taoist, those devotees who pray to deities, told my mum’s family that she was actually one of the 7 sister stars. Those devotees said that the one of the seven stars disappeared while she was on earth and returned back after she died and she was a celestial angel who was being granted permission to come to earth and play before going back by the end of 7months. My Mum said, “Ta shi xia lai wan de, yi xia zi jiu yao hui qu”.
