The Birth of Jesus

The Book of Matthew from the Bible records the significance of Jesus' birth. It refers to the astrologers, also known as wise men who came to worship Jesus when he was born. They had been studying the heavens and "came to Jerusalem saying, 'Where is he who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East and have come to worship him'" (Matthew 2:1-2). Astrology played an important role in announcing Jesus' birth and proving his divinity. The three wise men were guided by a special star. They understood this star as a sign which announced the birth of a new "king of the Jews.The three wise men were very probably priests who were followers of astrology from the Persian region.

Did you know that...

The twelve disciples of Christ are identified with the twelve signs of the zodiac. We still find traces of this in Leonardo da Vinci's painting of "The Last Supper," which was produced between 1495 and 1498. Here the twelve disciples are represented with characteristic markings and gestures of the twelve zodiac signs.

The Birth chart of Jesus Christ

natal chart of Jesus
Contemporary astrologers have worked out the date and time of Jesus' birth by combining historical, Biblical and astro–logical information. They have concluded that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Judea on March 1, 7 BC (Julian) at 1:30 AM. This birth chart has a six planet stellium in Pisces with five oppositions to Pluto and five trines to Neptune. This makes Jesus a super Pisces which correlates with the fact that for the first 300 years of the Christian era, the symbol of Christianity was not a cross, but a fish, the symbol of Pisces. A stellium in Pisces in the third house is an indication of extreme focus, genius and brilliancy in the area of spiritual matters with strong emphasis on compassion and communication. The oppositions to Pluto indicate the ability to transform others with compulsion which may be why he was crucified. The trines to Neptune indicate great kindness, highly developed psychic ability and miraculous healing powers. Sagittarius rising signifies a love of freedom and spiritual truth, and the ability to teach.

The Wise Men in Astrology

three wisemen
The wise men are represented by the three stars at the waistline of the constellation Orion. The wise men came from the east because they saw his star in the east. The king Herod sent the wise men to Bethlehem to find out when the star appears. Astronomically, Orion disappears below the horizon for about twelve hours. This could be seen as the time the wise men spent with King Herod. The wise men see the star of Bethlehem when Orion, with its three belt stars, hangs over Sirius. This is how the star 'rests over the place where the child was'. The wise men did not return to Herod because it is impossible for stars to reverse direction. In those days, astrologers were believed to be wise and learned men.

Virgo(Virgin) Mary

mary in astrology
The zodiac symbol Virgo represents Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. The name Mary means "water" as water is the mother element of birth.

In the beginning God divided the waters to make heaven and earth; Moses' Red Sea crossing symbolized the birth of the new nation of Israel. On December 25 at the first hour, Virgo ascends above the horizon .

It is significant that Virgo be ascending. Ascension is looked upon as a fortuitous direction.

The Manger in Astrology

The Book of Luke in the Bible says that Jesus was born in a manger. The manger is more specific in pointing to the house of Capricorn. There are reasons for the choice of manger.

The zodiac constellation preceding Capricorn is Sagittarius, half man half horse. As the sun descends, the horse is seen to be riding down towards its stable, or manger, into Capricorn.

It is a dark time of the year and mangers are dark places.

Astrology in Christianity

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) explained the relationship of Christianity and astrology. According to him, the heavenly bodies affect the physical condition of humans and the sensual inclinations. Every worldly bond is determined by the heavenly bodies. However, every human has also the possibility to avoid the influences of the celestial bodies. The more he overcomes sensual inclinations, makes use of his reason, and devotes himself to God, the better is he able to master the passions and with them the influence of the stars.

Know this...

At the time of the birth of David, the forefather of Jesus Christ, there was a double grand trine in the heavens. A trine is symbolized by an equilateral triangle and indicates that at the time of the birth, three planets formed a triangle equidistant from each other. This shows great talents, and gifts, and an ability to overcome a variety of problems, whatever problems may rise.

How Christmas came into being...

Key times for celebration in ancient Roman period were the cardinal points of the seasons, the solstices in June and December and the equinoxes in March and October. These periods measured seasons, the sowing and reaping of crops. The solstice at Christmas time marks the entry of the Sun into the sign of Capricorn whose Lord is Saturn. On this day the Sun appears to halt over the tropic of Capricorn for three days and then begins its journey North.

For the ancient Romans, Saturnalia was joyous celebration of the Saturn God. At some point in time, the holy day of Saturnalia had also been tied into being a celebration of the rebirth of the Sun - and, as such, Saturnalia was held each year about the time of the "winter solstice." In 4th Century AD, the Roman emperor at the time "officially" reset Saturnalia to be celebrated on December the 25th Shortly thereafter, the Church Fathers likewise set the official date for celebrating the birth of Jesus as being December the 25th.
