12 Steps

12 Steps The beings who occupied this sphere resided on 12 steps, each of which was the domain of from 9 to 12 angelic armies. The 12 steps of the second heaven may have represented signs of the zodiak (which, by the way, was commonly portrayed in mosaics in the earliest synogogues that have been excavated by archaeologists). The constellation Pisces was particularly associated with Palestine. Cited from Website: An Anthropologist
