Before we get to that lets consider what it means, the point of this exercise that seems so peculiar to some. Watching, first, is simply being obedient to what the Lord commanded us to do. Mark 13:37. There's a special benefit in the practice of informed watching, which is based on a sense of knowing what to look for and when to look for it. Seeing recognizable signs validates the reasoning behind the determination of the what and when. It's pretty simple really. What is being validated by the observations in this season supports what was already witnessed in previous rounds, which we've addressed at length elsewhere. This watching is rooted in a confidence in a knowing of the times and seasons. (Will No One Know the Day?) The sign of 1991. The count of Shemitah from that Yom Teruah. The template of the Shemitah matching the creation week and the millennial week, according to the secrets of Psalm 90:4. The thing that is still the most strange is being mindful that time itself has, in this season, been skewed in some way, and that the sad result is that our hope is deferred as we await the pending reset that will set us back on the biblical prophetic schedule, back into the past.
Here's the events that project into this season from the millennial week.
We're also watching for signs of the mark of the beast because this is the time during the prime Shemitah when we anticipate the full implementation. While we see MOB signs pretty constantly, that doesn't mean we can just ignore them in this brief season when they have special significance.
This watch season has a pivot on Yom Teruah, October 2, and which corresponds to the Creation week transitioning from the 4th to the 5th days.
One passage linking the creation week and the millennial week has a focus on this transitional season, John 1, because this is the dawning of the Sun of Righteousness.
Here's some items we noted, some of which speak to us as being pretty significant.

Jesus of Nazareth was probably seen by most as illegitimate, a bastard. ("Born of a virgin? Sure. Right. Nice story.") In most of the important watch seasons over many years of watching, Bill Clinton is usually in the news modeling something fit for the informed watching. Bill is always presented as an antichrist figure, a beast, a counterfeit Bridegroom. Danney Williams-Clinton, who claims to be his love-child, has been in the news during this watch season.

Did Peres’s Death Signal End of Josephic Messiah and Beginning of Davidic Messiah? - “When Shimon Peres, last of the leaders who founded the modern state of Israel, was eulogized last Friday by a historic gathering of over 90 world leaders from over 70 countries, it dramatically and emphatically marked the end of an era for Israel. One noted rabbi and educator recognized an even more significant transition taking place: the end of one Messianic age and the beginning of another. In Jewish tradition, there are two stages in the Messiah: initially Moshiach Ben Yosef (Messiah from the house of Joseph) and, subsequently, Moshiach Ben David (Messiah from the House of David).”
