Birth Chart of Jesus The Christ
William Lee Rand
In the second chapter
of Matthew of the authorized New English Bible we read: “After his
birth astrologers from the east arrived in Jerusalem, asking, ‘Where
is the child who is born to be king of the Jews? We observed the
rising of his star, and we have come to pay him homage.” This is
the first time the Bible has been accurately translated in its use
of the word “Magi” which is from the Greek “Magoi” and means astrologers.
So we see that astrologers were the first to recognize the significance
of Jesus’ birth and using their craft, knew exactly where and when
he would be born. They responded by traveling over 900 miles to
pay him homage with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
So what “star” did
the astrologers observe rising that told them of Jesus’ birth and
what was the exact date and time? In the astrology of ancient Persia,
the birth of a king was signified by a conjunction of Saturn and
Jupiter; an event that happens every 18 to 20 years. However, every
800 years these two bright planets come together in what is called
a triple syzygy, dancing together in their apparent retrograde and
direct motions and conjuncting three times over a period of eight
spectacular event would certainly have alerted the astrologers to
the birth of an unusually powerful ‘king,’ and such an event did
occur in 7 B.C. and was made even more spectacular by the addition
of several other bright planets. However, as we all know, B.C.
means ‘before Christ’ so how could Jesus have been born during this
astrological event if it occurred ‘before Christ.’
The fact is that
the B.C. calendar was created 500 years after the birth of Jesus
by Dionysius Exiguus the Less who was not much of a historian.
He made several obvious mistakes. We know from the book of Matthew
that Jesus was born during the reign of King Herod and that it was
in fact several years before King Herods death. Since King Herod
died in 4 B.C., Jesus must have been born in 6 or 7 B.C. which is
what most biblical scholars agree on.
time of year to celebrate Christmas is December 25th, yet it is
known that Jesus was not born on this day. The Church chose this
day to celebrate Christmas as a way to interfere with the celebration
of the Winter Solstice, a pagan holiday that was competing with
the church. (This was also done with Easter which is actually Ishtar’s
day, another pagan holiday.) According to the Bible, the shepherds
were watching their flocks at night when the angel of the Lord came
and told of the birth of Jesus. Sheep were not kept in the fields
during the cold winter months, so this makes a warmer time of year
A contemporary astrologer,
the late Don “Moby Dick” Jacobs who was also a Methodist minister
and Bible scholar has worked out the date and time of Jesus’ birth
by combining historical, Biblical and astrological information.
His conclusion is that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Judea on March
1, 7 BC (Julian) at 1:30AM.
This birth chart
was calculated by Astro Numeric Service using a special “deep time”
program. It is perhaps one of the most powerful possible with 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
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.
