A speculative birth chart for Jesus: Apr 17, 6 BC

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe me not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? John 3:12

Pictured here is the chart I use as the natal chart of Jesus of Nazareth, based on the date that Jupiter (royalty) arose as the Morning Star and was occulted by the Moon in Aries, sign of Israel and Palestine. Thanks to calendar changes being slightly off, we have "6 BC" instead of the year zero.

Since we know that Jesus was born during the reign of Herod the Great (is he Jupiter in this chart being occulted by the Moon?), the year we call "6 BC" contained this rare occultation, "7 BC" is known to be when a Great Jupiter-Saturn conjunction occurred in Pisces--and since lambs are born in the Spring, not mid-winter--it's one reason I use this chart.

Moon and Jupiter conjoined at 12:08:22 pm in 9th house (Bethlehem) yet this Jupiter rising chart is the one I prefer with asteroid, Morya at MC (the Goal or Objective) and Morya having connection with death, and fate or destiny.

And as you see, there is a YOD pattern (Finger of God: special task or purpose; crisis) pointing to the rising Moon, Ascendant (Jesus Himself if we accept this chart as His birth chart), and by extension, pointing to Jupiter as well.

But can modern day midpoint pictures possibly apply to an event from such ancient days?

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were there although not within people's consciousness, of course. Accordingly, our modern perspectives are naturally different--and time should bring insight, don't you think?

Click to enlarge the chart for a few scribbled notes, but I'll type in the midpoint pictures for the YOD (including Jupiter which certainly seems to apply to the situation.) The combo of Neptune-Pluto = unseen forces; the supernatural; other realms:

Neptune-Pluto = Moon: supernatural experiences; strange states of soul experiences; anxiety about being appreciated (well-founded!);

Neptune-Pluto = ASC: surrounded by an air of mysticism (a halo?!); placed in a peculiar environment (what a major culture shock--from heaven to earth!);

Neptune-Pluto = Jupiter: religiousness; in love with life; "Thank God"; universal love; love of humanity (I'll say!); high degree of perception; a peace-loving disposition.

Mercury trine Pluto creates a Grand Trine of sorts with MC; Mercury-Pluto = powerful words that persuade; creating or demanding new perspectives...

Mercury-Pluto = MC: great perception of any situation; leadership (why King Herod was so worried--sucky, cruel leaders should be); coping ability; keen powers of judgment; foresight.

Sun and Moon were in Balsamic phase of the prophet--a phase of partings and endings. His death was a sad parting, and He brought an end to the Age of Aries as well. People born during the Balsamic phase of the Moon (prior to a New Moon) are future-oriented folk who often arrive when something or someone is ending.

Progressive, futuristic, and rebellious Uranus is in sacrificial Pisces, sign of the Mystic, and love-filled Venus is also in Pisces, sign of her exaltation (universal love.) Jesus certainly disrupted things but from motives of pure Love, the Foundation of the Universe.

The birth of Christ marked the beginning of the Age of Pisces, sign of the Fish and the secret sign of Christianity in Roman times (used today) as the Age of Aries, the Ram, symbol of Israel and Palestine, passed away--Old Testament times into the New Testament era. On one level, His birth, life, and crucifixion on Earth symbolize death of the ego so that Man can be liberated and born again in Spirit (if he so chooses.)

The Magi, Persian astronomers/astrologers (probably from Babylonia), shared the Aramaic language with the Jews and so they knew of the Prophecy of the Messiah and would have been well able to predict His birth in time to make the journey to the Land of Judah while following the Star of Bethlehem.

The Star of Bethlehem has been thought to be the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn during the year 7 BC: in May, September, and October. This occurred in Pisces, and it is my belief that the Magi realized the significance of this Great Conjunction in Pisces--a King of Kings to be born in the East--and made their preparations for the journey to find the Babe...and to honor Him with gifts of gold (for a king), frankincense (for divinity), and myrrh (for death and healing.)

I write this post with the wonderful aroma of frankincense surrounding me. Try it if you haven't--it's lovely.

The unusual occurrence of Jupiter as Morning Star in Aries being occulted by the Moon--in April (Spring, when lambs are born, not Dec 25, a date chosen by the Catholic Church in Rome to coincide with the pagan Saturnalia festival and thus bringing goddess worhip into the fold bwo the church's elevation of Mary) is possibly the Star followed by the Magi.

My own thought is that the Great Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction/s may have been the Star itself, with the Moon-Jupiter-Morning Star phenomena as a timing device for the birth of the Prince of Peace.

Jupiter and Saturn Principles and Faith:

Jupiter represents the generous side of God (His staff), while Saturn represents God's disciplinarian side (His rod.) On one level, we may relate "Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me..." directly to the natural law of Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (restriction) being the fly-wheel of the universe--the tension between them keeping the planets in their courses. Yin-yang, positive-negative...a constant comfort to me and I hope to you as well!

It's been a treat to give earthly halls of power--politics--the slip as I contemplate the heavenly things of true value. If you came to Stars Over Washington today expecting politics as usual, I assert that Stars are all around us, and the Star of Bethlehem, still shining brightly, may lead us yet to the golden stardust within each of us, and to greater truths than those generally found lurking about in the halls of our nation's capital--Saturnian Capitol Hill.

I think your date for this chart is in error.

Jesus was born at a date and time certain.

For my reference, I present the following:

"All that night Mary was restless so that neither of them slept much. By the break of day the pangs of childbirth were well in evidence, and at noon, August 21, 7 B.C., with the help and kind ministrations of women fellow travelers, Mary was delivered of a male child. Jesus of Nazareth was born into the world, was wrapped in the clothes which Mary had brought along for such a possible contingency, and laid in a near-by manger."

If you have a decent piece of software, you can calculate this chart.

For "noon", make the Sun conjunct the Midheaven.

You will notice that it is the "perfect" chart.

The Sun is in its rulership in Leo.
The Moon is in its rulership in Cancer.
The planet Mercury is in its rulership in Virgo.
The planet Venus is in its rulership in Libra.
The planet Mars is in its rulership in Scorpio.
The planet Jupiter is in its rulership in Pisces.
The planet Saturn, THE GREATER MALIFIC, is OUT of its rulership, and under the rulership of the greater Benefic in Pisces.

This chart is EXTREMELY useful for timing rather large events.

Check out where the "relocation" sunrise is.

Take this information with my blessings.

Thanks, Anonymous. (Did you mean to type 'Jude'? for I am not a 'dude'.)

There are several potential natal charts for Jesus of Nazareth - th eone I use here is the one that seemed most descriptive to me 0 but I will check out the details and link you provide. However, I do suspect that if He wanted us to know He would have made certain we did!

We astrologers are a curious bunch who would love to be sure of His birthdate (and hour) yet His natal chart is not necessary for being gifted with eternal life, The Point of His birth. Jude

Anonymous, copying/pasting your link does not lead anywhere. jc

Sorry, misspelled Jude.

The link is to The Urantia Book.
Also called the Truth book.

There are various search urls for it.

Think of it as "Universe 101."

It's about 2,000 pages long.

Each section is easier than the previous one, so you may want to start with the 4th section, and work you way back.

Scientists have examined the probability of the "scientific" details of this book (section 3), and express that it is about a billion to one that it was a fraud.

If you want to know the answer to almost any question, there are clues in this book.

More clues than you might imagine.

Check out page 2011 of the original printing. Hint: Jesus dies.

Michael, thanks for clarifying. Found the book and read the first page, Contents, and its Wiki bio. Since it denies several of the fundamental doctrines of the Bible - even that the Crucifixion of Jesus atoned for our sins - it's not for me.

And when messages arrive through a sleeping (unnamed) person and bwo mediumship - and authors' names remain a big secret - it doesn't cause me to trust its source.

Yes, I know there are unfallen worlds and unfallen beings but they don't communicate in such mysterious ways - they are in perfect communion with God as humankind once was. They watch events on Earth with great interest and compassion for this created world is the Lesson Book of the Universe where evil will be vanquished once and for all.

For me the Bible doesn't need 'upgrading' and I'm not "confused about the meanings of such terms as God, divinity, and deity" (as it begins in the Foreward.)

Also, I don't believe 'UFOs' come from other planets either - I'm just too Saturnian for any sort of Uranian, mystery religion, psychic medium stuff, my friend!

So thanks again for the shout-out on the book, I appreciate your adding info to SO'W. That the book was published is interesting on one level but as I said, not for me. Besides, I'd give up with a puh! long before I reached page 2,079!!
