I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, [which] shall never hold their peace day or night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 KJV
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

The star in the east is Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, which on December 24th aligns with the three brightest stars in Orion’s belt. These three bright stars in Orion’s belt are called today what they were called in ancient times "the three kings." And the three kings and the brightest star Sirius all point to the place of the sunrise on December 25th. This is why the 3 kings follow the star in the east in order to locate the sunrise: the birth of the sun.
The Virgin Mary is the constellation Virgo, also known as Virgo the Virgin. Virgo in Latin means virgin. Virgo was also referred to as the "House of Bread," and the representation of Virgo is a virgin holding a sheath of wheat. This house of bread and its symbol of wheat represents August and September, the time of harvest. In turn, Bethlehem, in fact, literally translates to "House of Bread." Bethlehem is thus a reference to the constellation Virgo, a place in the sky, not on Earth.
There is another very interesting phenomenon that occurs around December 25th or the winter solstice. From the summer solstice to the winter solstice the days become shorter and colder, and from the perspective of the northern hemisphere, the sun appears to move south and get smaller and more scarce. The shortening of the days and the expiration of the crops, when approaching the winter solstice, symbolize the process of death to the ancients. It was the death of the sun.
And by December 22nd, the sun’s demise was fully realized for the sun, having moved south continually for 6 months, makes it to its lowest point in the sky. Here, a curious thing occurs. The sun stops moving south at least perceivably for 3 days and during this 3-day pause, the sun resides in the vicinity of the Southern Cross, or Crux constellation. And after this time, on December 25th, the sun moves 1 degree this time north, foreshadowing longer days, warmth, and spring.
And thus it was said: "The sun died on the cross, was dead for 3 days, only to be resurrected or born again."
