The influence of Fixed Stars emphasize something very unique and different that a regular planetary influence. Actually, this influence is sometimes activating important mission that can be given to a particular great Soul to accomplish.
One very important story about “the Star influence” and incarnation of a special Soul is a story of a birth of Jesus Christ.
The majority of astronomers and astrologers who have examined the Star of Bethlehem have come to the consensus that it is probably the planetary configuration that included the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces, which happened in 7 B.C.
The conjunction of the two slowest planets in Babylonian and Judean astrology was interpreted as a transmission of power from one supernatural divinity to another. Pisces was the constellation of the new age, and additionally, it was the sign associated with the people of Judea. The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces could be a message to the astrologers that this was the time of the birth of the long-anticipated Messiah, and also that this new “king” would be born among the Jewish people.
Astrological symbolism in the Gospels
The first astrologer who began to interpret the Gospels in an astrological way was Marc Penfield. Namely, a Jesuit priest told him that the correct translation of all the Gospels should be that the Christ was born “of the Virgin” and not “of a Virgin.” The definite article indicates that it is about a specific Virgin (in this case the horoscope sign), and not a virgin as a descriptive term. For people of that time, the meaning would literally have been “born of the sign Virgo.” Furthermore – “born in a manger” could be explained as “in the fourth astrological house,” which means that he was born between 10:00pm and midnight. A literal interpretation of the statement that he was “born beside an ox and a donkey” led to the general conviction that these animals were in the same room as his family, which according to Jewish law was not permitted. Symbolically, this could refer to the placement of his Moon or Ascendant close to the end of Taurus or at the beginning of Gemini.
The real “son of the Virgin”
Already, on the basis of these few astrologically significant details, we can conclude that we are on the correct path. First, Jesus had to have been born at night (as all the Gospels tell us), because only then could be seen “the Star of Bethlehem” – the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. From here we easily can conclude that those horoscopes that indicate that Jesus was born with the Sun in Pisces simply do not match, because in that case the Sun would be extremely close to “the star,” that is, to the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. This would mean that the star in no way could be seen in the heavens – during the day because of the sunlight, and at night simply because it would have been below the horizon. With a little calculation, we can approach the very important discovery. Namely, that the exact moment of August 31, 7 B.C. at 22h 25min LMT in Bethlehem, gives the unique picture of the heavens which completely fits the unique astrological code of this great incarnation.
The deeper I’ve gone into interpreting this horoscope, the more I have found interesting confirmation. Throughout history Jesus has been known as the “son of a Virgin,” which fits well into the theory that his Sun sign is Virgo. But why would it be exactly August 31st? The most interesting and the most deep logic which unavoidably connects Jesus with Virgo is the position of his double ruler – Mercury (Sun sign Virgo, Ascendant Gemini), which is at 26° Virgo. In his era, exactly at this degree was the fixed star Spica, the greatest star in the constellation Virgo (α Virgo). Astrology experts may know that the star Spica is now at 23° Libra, but since it moves slowly (one degree every 72 years), 2000 years ago it was exactly 27° earlier than where it is today, which corresponds to 26° Virgo! Even more outstanding, on that day Mercury was in an exact occultation with this star! This exceptional placement, not only of the position of the Sun in his horoscope, but even more the fateful position of his ruler (Mercury) at one of the most important stars in all of astrology – which is α Virgo – directs us to this precise date. Additionally, it is very important to note that next to the star Spica is also Arcturus from Bootes, which directly refers to he who arises from God and who is closest to God. Namely, the conjunction of these two planets refers very much to the astrological code which might be translated as “the one who originates from Virgo (Spica) and who is God’s son (Arcturus).” So if the ruler of the Ascendant and Sun is exactly at this point, we already get a very precise picture of a great incarnation.
The Son of God and the Virgin
In addition to this placement of the ruler of the Ascendant on the important point where Spica and Arcturus meet by longitude, there is another very important detail which designates God’s son. Namely, at the time of his birth, the star Betelgeuse was about 27.5° earlier than where it is now, exactly at 01° Gemini 07’, in an exact conjunction with Jesus’ Ascendant! More than suggestive is that Orion is the only constellation that ancient nations (especially Egyptians) respected as a God – and not only as the symbol of God, but as God-like himself, his physical appearance. In one text from a pyramid, it literally said about Orion – or to the Egyptians, about Osiris:
…I am the essence of a god,
the son of a god.
The constellation Orion is, according to that passage, the archetype of God. It is the most shining and most spectacular constellation in the night sky and it has the form of large man. Betelgeuse is its greatest star and it is his right arm or shoulder, presenting in this way that which is clear and strong. Isn’t it said that Jesus “is sitting on the right side of the Father”?
If this star was rising in the east at the moment when Jesus was born (it was on his Ascendant), then also that minute of birth (which will give 1° Gemini) will correspond to the picture of God on Earth, which right now is being born or incarnating.
Concretely – “born from God and the Virgin” – would mean that the Ascendant is on the alpha star of Orion (Betelgeuse), and the ruler of the Ascendant is on the alpha star of Virgo (Spica).
Healing, crucifixion, resurrection…
The next unusual and most outstanding sign is the placement of Neptune at 3° Scorpio – exactly at Moon’s degree of fall, and also in exact midpoint to Venus in Libra and Mars in Scorpio. Venus is at 23° Libra – the degree where at that time was the star Unucalhai which is traditionally said to bring immortality. Mars is at 12° Scorpio, and at that degree then was the very powerful star Antares (today at 9° Sagittarius) – known as “the Keeper of the West.” Neptune is at the midpoint of Mars and Venus, holding the balance between two very strongly expressed planets (which present two basic emotional conditions, love and hate). Surely this speaks about a person who is in a condition to rule with spirituality and faith (Neptune). Besides that, this planetary combination is in the sixth house, which gives a unique healing gift! The position of Neptune becomes in this way very important in his horoscope, and if we consider that Neptune is at the degree of Pluto’s exaltation, which relates to regeneration, reincarnation – and also resurrection – we can see spirituality related with resurrection. Strengthening that influence, Pluto is conjunct the Sun in the fourth house (enormous strength of transformation; the fourth house also represents the grave, Pluto – death, and the Sun – life), which here gives the symbolism that could be “returning to life from the grave.”
The Moon is in the eighth house (death, suffering) and in the sign of Sagittarius, so along with the rest also describes the death of Jesus. It is in a square with Jupiter (ruler of the eighth houses) and Mercury (ruler of the first house). The Moon always represents the masses, so the masses condemn him to death. Sagittarius refers to religion, but also to the military – especially the foreign military, which here played a part. Also, the Moon is on the little star Terebellum, which Ptolemy mentions as the main star in “a four-sided shape in the tail of Sagittarius.” Are these “four sides” in a symbolic way related with the cross on which he was crucified? For a more impressive picture, precisely at the top of the fourth house in the horoscope of Jesus (13° Leo), there was the fixed star Zosma (today at 10° Virgo), about which is said “…does not give fame until the person does not become a victim.” The fourth house speaks about how we will be remembered after our physical death. The fact that we remember Jesus as “the one who sacrificed himself for the good of all of us” is affirmed by the position of this star exactly at the top (or in the beginning) of the fourth house.
A little bit about solar arcs
Already at first sight, on the basis of what we know about the life of Jesus, we can verify the precision of the horoscope. Moreover, it’s impressive that in his second year, when the solar arc Sun came into a conjunction with Pluto in the fourth house, that would indicate a change of residence. This matches with the most likely year of his moving to another place because of Herod’s persecution. After all, the main repository of destiny here must be Mercury (as the double ruler, on the very strong Spica). We can see that when Jesus was seven years old, Mercury came into a semisextile with the very powerful and spiritually placed Neptune and, at the same time, quincuinx with Uranus (unexpected accommodations!?).
Not analyzing here where he was and what he was doing in the period before his thirtieth year (which also can be presumed by observing the directions), we can notice the position of directed Mercury for the age of 32, in a sextile with Moon, the ruler of the third house, when he realized his greatest popularity (Moon – masses) and that happened through his speech (the ruler of the third house in a trine with Mercury, the personality). The age of thirty-three is taken as the year of his crucifixion, exactly when Mercury (ruler of the Ascendant, the native) by direction formed a conjunction with the South Node (lost) and that on the 29th degree of the sign (the end itself). After the 29th degree of Libra, we’re entering into the sign of Scorpio, the ruler of which is the previously mentioned Pluto, which here is emphasized and important, because it is in conjunction with the Sun – life. In this way, after death comes life – or “the resurrection.”
The knowledge of astrologers
Maybe the most beautiful thing in all this research is not only that we have in front of us the horoscope of Jesus, but discovering that his birth was foreseen by the Chaldean astrologers, discovered by them and in the authentic way they preserved the dates about his birth in the form of astrological symbolism. Now we can see that, on the basis of their data, many years later the Gospels were written – in the form of coded astrological symbolism.
