Apocalyptic horses? or epidemic sickness?

Chinese Astrology, Chinese Signs, (Feng Shui, I Ching)

The Chinese calendar is a calendar based on the moon phase and the season of the solar year incorporating elements of a lunar calendar with those of a solar calendar. In modern day China, the solar or Gregorian calendar is used for most day to day activities, but the Chinese calendar is still used for marking traditional Chinese holidays such as Chinese New Year, Duan Wu festival, and the Mid-Autumn Festival, and in Chinese Astrology, such as choosing the most auspicious date for the opening of a business or setting a wedding date.

…I am sure is Just a coincidence that we currently have a swine influenza outbreak; And before that we had the Bird Flu_

Quote about Jesus casting out demons out of pigs, a sign?
The account when Jesus casts out demons and turns them to pigs is a remarkable story, and is found in three of the gospel accounts. Matthew, Mark, and Luke describe a man who had a host of demons residing in Him.

Description of image:
Qais ruins! Gerden or something was it’s Roman name. the site which JESUS cast the deamons into pigs and they ran into the sea of galilee (see top left). then JC wasn’t welcomed, so sailed across the sea."

On the hill here you can see the ruins of the chapel at Kursi where Jesus drove the demons out of the man and sent them into a herd of pigs who then drowned themselves in the Sea of Galilee. This is thought to be the site where Jesus drove the unclean spirits out of the man and into the herd of pigs

Plagues of Egypt
From: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Plagues of Egypt (Hebrew: מכות מצרים, Makot Mitzrayim), the Biblical Plagues or the Ten Plagues (Hebrew: עשר המכות, Eser Ha-Makot) are the ten calamities imposed upon Egypt by God in the Bible (as recounted in the book of Exodus, chapters 7 – 12), in order to convince Pharaoh to let the poorly treated Israelite slaves go. The Plagues of Egypt are recognized by Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

We are looking for artistic or pictorial the representatives of these:

The zodiac sign which the sun enters during the month and the ecliptic longitude of that entry point usually determine the number of a regular month. Month 1 (正月 zhēngyuè), literally means principal month. All other months are literally numbered, second month, third month, etc.

I found it fun and interesting that my dob has this association:

Animals of the C.C. Summary look through entire work even if you don’t understand Chinese and search for the original image in large view located in the upper left hand corner

What probably happened and how the Swine Flu got here:

Most likely the Reason why people got infected and virus is mutating:
Uncook meats

How it mutates_:

Don’t blaime it on the pig just yet

Poverty stricken countries are more likely to fall pray of these types of deceases which are caused by ill cooking; an example of that is how the Bird flu also started from ill cooked meals.

So be sure to cook your meals thoroughly.

I for one will not dare to eat anything rare only well done.

Prevention Methods:
Let the pig have a vacation from your diet for now;

…And don’t forget there is also Mad Cow decease, and Bird Flu to worry about

Beware of the recycle air on Airplanes:
They are one of the causes of rapid infestation

Now what do we have left to eat from the Calendar?
