MAD PROPHECY, BAD ASTROLOGY AND THE TRUMP WIN

trump

A DEVASTATING ASTROLOGICAL FAILURE….MEANING?

I don’t doubt that in especially many American evangelical minds, their prejudice against astrology will seem amply justified by recent events of the presidential election. At one level the prejudice could seem well justified – even devastatingly so.

It’s a fact most American astrologers predicted Clinton would win at the election easily. The LA Times of October 18th reported that a conference at Costa Mesa of hundreds of astrologers (of The International Society For Astrological Research no less!) was unanimous Hillary would win. This was of course only what a blind media (and the polls) almost automatically assumed too in a clear case of people believing what they want to believe. (At a stretch and in mitigation one might say Clinton won the popular vote and certainly those astrologers were right who noting the moon to Neptune factor on the day forecast confusion over the result. But even so).

By contrast, and like some prophet of old, Pastor Saeed Abedini, the long term Christian prisoner in Iran so little helped by the Obama regime, told Huffington Post days before the November election, that while in jail Jesus had informed him Trump would be next president. Ironically the same Huffington Post had even given space to astrologer Larry Schwimmer to detail all the celestial aspects that supposedly showed why Clinton must win against Trump.

For American evangelicals, such devastating failure by astrologers simply justifies Isaiah’s condemnation (Is 47: 13) of stargazing and suggests that astrology when not pure nonsense is a form of the biblically forbidden divination (albeit the Essenes and Talmudists didn’t read their Torah that way and practiced astrology as did the Magi who visited the Christ child). Didn’t Isaiah ironically declare, “Let those who study the heavens stand up and save you, those who gaze at the stars and at each new moon tell what shall befall you”?. So astrology has to be wrong, religiously and empirically, right?…..

CHRISTIAN PROPHETS WRONG TOO

….Despite everything, actually the answer is no. It is so for reasons I will show presently….after immediately mentioning how inaccurate some Christian prophets have also been over the election. In Nigeria a famous preacher and self-declared prophet, TB Joshua, forecast a Hillary win but tried too late to delete it from his website causing public scandal. In America prophet Brian Carn forecast a Hillary win. Prophetically inclined preacher Perry Stone, though hoping for a Trump victory, expected a Hillary win because a prophecy from the thirties from the controversial but often accurate William Branham, foresaw the destruction of America under the rule of a woman.

Still more extravagantly there is prophetess Glenda Jackson, who portrays herself as consistently right (having visited heaven and hell and chatted with St Paul how could she be wrong?!), and due in these her latter days to be made by God like the prophet Samuel. She declared on TV to the hopelessly credulous Steve Roth of It’s Supernatural last April, that there would be no election. There would be crisis in America and Obama would suspend the election and reinstate himself to become America’s last president.

Obama as last and apocalyptic president is itself a claim quite a few would-be prophets have endorsed, some of them following visions in the night reported on YouTube. Some of these nostrums are supposedly released under the direct influence and authority of Jesus and/or the Holy Spirit. Frankly it’s an embarrassment to Christianity and recalls another prophet, Jeremiah, on another subject: noisy, over-active false prophets (Jer 14:14, 23:16) whom God never called.

But it’s no good the kettle calling the pot black. If you abominate astrologers you had better start abominating and weeding out your own prophets. So I repeat the question: is astrology so wrong? I don’t ask here whether it’s theologically wrong (a case for it can always be biblically made no matter what evangelicals claim), but is it just inaccurate nonsense no one in or out of Christianity should consider? What about all the false prediction for Clinton? How ever could this even come about?……

ASTROLOGY RIGHT, ASTROLOGERS WRONG?

……Three points in answer can suffice here:

1) It is always best if an astrologer is an all-rounder and not just a specialist and this means they need to know a bit of history in order to apply their sometimes complex data aright. The Republican party, as a conservative party is linked to Saturn whose sign of rulership is Capricorn. Yet most American astrologers seem blithely unaware of the remarkable historical/astrological fact that since the foundation of the GOP in 1854, every time Saturn has been in Capricorn, a Republican has been president. Saturn though now in Sagittarius will be in Capricorn during any first term of the next president so Hillary was not favoured. I only recently learned this through America myself but it is something especially American astrologers with a grasp of history could and should have known. It’s an instance of astrology being relevant and accurate but astrologers ignorant, rather like the bible true but high jacked by interpreters.

2) Something that almost all qualified, practicing astrologers should be expected to know, is the well-established Grant Lewi theory about the cycles of Saturn. Basically it is that career and success are governed by the 28 year Saturn transit of the natal pattern through its four quadrants. Self and career is made or re-established through the first quadrant and it grows and finds outlet in especially the last quadrant between the 10th and 12th houses. Clinton’s birth time is admittedly disputed, but on the basis that in 2014 Saturn crossed her ascendant according to the most widely assumed birth time and Saturn is thus now in only her first quadrant, she simply could never become president in her lifetime and it was astrological folly to try.

3) If astrologers were abreast of researches as of the Magi Society they would also be aware that even if the aspect is a traditionally easy/positive/fortunate one such as a trine, when transiting Saturn aspects to natal Pluto that marks failure regardless of all else. This is just what was the case around election time for Hillary. Plainly, many like Larry Schwimmer at Huffington did not know this. And almost no one listened to a friend of mine in astrology, Barbara Ybarra of San Francisco, who back in April did forecast a Trump victory on Sacramento’s local TV. She cannily noted a technicality (a progressed moon conjuncting the ruler of Trump’s career Midheaven), affecting the inauguration day as opposed to the election day most astrologers focussed on (1).

(A possible further point to note is that by transit conservative Saturn by election time had   – if one used the most widely used Sibley foundation chart for America – crossed over America’s ascendant into its first house hinting at a new swerve in the body of the people towards a  conservatism desiring to remake America by restoring many traditional values. The shock of this reversal was arguably promised by the way the eclipse preceding the election had closely squared America’s foundational Uranus, the shocks and upheaval factor).

TRUMP’S UNUSUAL CHIRONIC WIN

I was not myself aware of the just mentioned Saturn to Pluto principle and despite success with Brexit, can’t boast I did better than the American astrologers on Hillary, though I have more excuse. I’m not American, astrology isn’t my regular profession to concern myself with the question and I don’t know Hillary Clinton’s birth time – no one seems to which should render any predictions more cautious and provisional.

The reason I slipped over the Hillary forecast was this. Without applying any in-depth study to Trump’s (accurate) chart at all  – not even the asteroids I usually examine which significantly enough show America conjunct Trump’s ascendant – , it didn’t strike me as about to produce any very typical, obvious winning pattern at election time. Jupiter conjuncting Trump’s Chiron, the wounded healer planetoid, a factor to be emphasized again at the inauguration, is rather special and raises all sorts of interesting questions beyond present scope about Trump’s and America’s situation. I merely assumed some tough but positive aspects for Hillary like the mentioned Saturn to Pluto reflected a hard campaign (as was the case) in which the disliked but least opposed candidate (Hillary) was likely to emerge as victor however narrowly. I assumed no easy run or landslide victory and can’t imagine how any astrologer ever would.

I could and perhaps should have applied the Grant Lewi principle I was familiar with, but as said the birth time is disputed. If you don’t know that you won’t measure the quadrants properly. So I have excuses and perhaps the American astrologers could be allowed some….if they hadn’t spoken with such excessive confidence.

As it is, failure of the astrological elite in this instance is rather spectacular. It’s without parallel since the 9/11 disaster which only one astrologer (in The Mountain Astrologer, America’s most intellectual astrological journal) got right according to basic rules that amazingly all the rest seem not to have known or just ignored. Essentially a major eclipse had hit a world point in the sign of America (Cancer) and eclipses are triggered for events when planets go over their degree. Aggressive, bellicose Mars hitting a dangerous eclipse point should produce mayhem the world would hear of. Was it against American positive thought to suggest disaster could occur?

Once again astrology was true enough but the astrologers like the prophets fail…….[ After issuing this blog I have belatedly discovered the case of astrologer GianPaolo DiCoco’s very striking insistence against the astrological establishment that Trump must win – various You Tubes but see  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEtsUkRIOOk ]

BACK TO THE MAGI…..REALLY

All this is troubling if like myself you believe religion is important and astrology carries messages that religion should know and use, not excommunicate as heresy. As the recent election contest has underlined, many Christians want and expect visions, prophecies, special words from the Spirit. Ironically they fail to realize, and could hardly imagine, that the Spirit (long recognized by astrologers as symbolically represented by the planet Uranus) is giving messages all the time through the skies and the same astrology that Uranus “rules”. The Psalms declare night after night gives knowledge (Ps 19:2). Which they do if only attention was paid. So why not “Hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Rev 2:7) in one of the forms in which the divine will is revealed – even daily revealed? You would need to know and understand about the astrology of diurnals to grasp something of what the Psalms claim about every day of our lives being already written in advance (Ps 139:16).

It is high time and beyond it that Christianity, which is increasingly dismissed as a purveyor of myths, should understand the long hidden mysteries of the Magi, better grasp the historical basis of its beliefs and know for once and for all when Jesus was born. Also when Jesus died and that he died on the cross (an increasingly challenged point) and along the way know whether he married the Magdalene and all such more personal details of biography and character people want to know today.

A modern astrology, especially if it applies the micro-astrology of name, place and concept asteroids and the descriptive factor of the Parts can do these things; and they are now available for anyone to read in my Testament of the Magi. The material, a radical development of the Ferrari  D’Occhieppo and David Hughes theory considered by Pope Benedict as plausible, is as distinctive as a fingerprint for Jesus. It resolves numerous longstanding scholarly problems and popular questions and altogether represents so improbable a discovery – no one could possibly invent all the details – it is as good as unanswerable. Let any who wishes, try to demolish the evidence. I suggest they can’t and won’t…..All the more reason many will try to ignore and pretend the evidence doesn’t exist.  (Testament of the Magi is available at Amazon in book and kindle versions  https://goo.gl/I28aCm

 testament1

That situation belongs with issues of our times. The Trump election has helped highlight just how much information is dominated by political and media elites who don’t necessarily reflect society but do seek to impose their own views. I submit this is one reason my crucial information has not reached the public forum as in justice it deserves. Publishers and media outlets who will give room and voice to the most whacko or negatively undermining treatments of Christianity and Jesus, have proverbially no room at the inn for this information – you are fortunate even to be given a reply to a proposal or inquiry. Sometimes there is a plain uncivil answer or, as recently with someone in religion in Australia’s broadcaster, the person is just too busy to attend to you because they have “more important things” to do…..more important that is than something in its way as potentially significant as the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Basically you are liable today to be treated like a fool if the dogmatic and undemocratic elite doesn’t happen to be interested or in agreement with your views or you are not already a celebrity.

Truth however has a way of ultimately getting out. The material is now available for readers to assimilate, discuss and pass on. You can do your part in making the truth known…if it isn’t and always was so essentially secret it’s a kind of knowledge hidden from the world as St Paul would have it (1 Cor 2:7-8)….Or, as the correctly forecasting Pastor Saeed rather airily said to Huffington Post, “You’re not Christian so you wouldn’t understand”. I’ve certainly encountered misunderstanding enough.

1) Trump’s important progressed moon at inauguration time is interesting and strange like his Jupiter to Chiron aspect at election. Normally, symbolic progressions amplify but essentially agree with transits. The cited inauguration progression is of the winning variety as Barbara Ybarra saw, but at the same time Trump has Saturn transit his natal moon (anything to do with home and emotional tenor) and opposite sun (his will and status in the world). I joked to Barbara that, knowing Trump, if he did win, was inaugurated and entered the Whitehouse under Saturn he could well rubbish his new home declaring it uncomfortably inferior to Trump Tower. That’s surely a real possibility; but I do find the usually depressive, frustrating Saturn/moon transit odd at the point of assuming power. Like the Chiron factor at election, it looks as though hard times are ahead for Trump (and America) and he is taking on heavy Saturnian burdens. Barbara herself thinks the outlook for America in 2017, especially later in the year, is pretty grim and notes the long so-called Great American Eclipse across the US in August hits right on Trump’s ascendant conjunct America. Let’s not speculate…yet anyway.

THE MAGI AT ERA’S END: A POEM

THE MAGI AT ERA’S END: A POEM

THE MAGI AT ERA’S END: A POEM  (followed by a feature indicating how its information is true and still works vividly today)

Tzedek, great lord of liberty and righteousness
With Shabtai symbol of the Sabbath rest
Serene across the desert plains you once rose
Not as prodigy yet bearer of high mysteries, [1]
Even limitless, with secrets to unsettle kings
And mark beginnings of an age
Now entered on its anguished end.

Magi who fled into the night, of all
You witnessed and declared you left no trace
Except what was enshrined in precious gifts.
Gold was a royal sun and bright divinity,
Myrrh was your Shabtai, Saturn of burial,
Endings and the God of Law, while Frankincense
Was Jupiter for the priestly chosen one. [2]

Inside degrees stargazers of the Gentile
Lands attributed to Israel, two stars
Conjoined as sign the One of Ancient Days
Had sent and blessed the filial messenger.
They shone near blended as one light
Themselves in opposition to a set,
Long hidden sun of night within the
Maiden sign of dedication [3] This was
The centre of a horoscope, this was
The vital core of what you knew,
A life of  kingship, service, prophecy
But then of conflict too with persons
Of authority and faith all promising
One cruel end – judicial execution. [4]

Yet even you who wondered, sought and
Who adored, even you with whom an era
Was begun could not see all, were not disclosed
The further secrets time unfolds. No tables
And no instruments of yours could tell
The same night of nativity inscribed
The names and titles in the skies, would
Place the forebears in their proper house, [5]
Would as one pattern signify and far beyond
The time of death, would work throughout an age’s
Span, so much there is no question you were right.
Those mysteries you first divined for which you
Left far Persian homes are something we may
Certify; yours was the truth we can enlarge.

Between long centuries if much has changed
Among those things which stay the same, include
There lacks the room within the inn for either whom
You came to find or else the wisdom you reveal.
Most wish to know the authentic Christ, or if
The messiah lived and died. For some it’s
Curiosity, for others it’s their means
Of gain; even so, contempt, indifference
Or hate is all there is to greet suggestion
That they trace your way resolving most
They want to know. “It would not fit our list”
The godless publisher opines, the same who’ll milk
Religion for the Magdalene. “I don’t do myth” another
Says (who deals in lies). Of enemies the worst
And almost furthest from the truth, the followers
Of Christ know best: there is nor can be fate
Or astral truth, it’s devil’s work, forbidden
Divination, no magi were astrologers –
Even though Talmudists and the Essenes
Were, as they aggressively ignore.

And thus for arrogance religion joins
The scientist who quite denies the heavens
Speak knowledge as the Psalm would say. [6]
So now the ship of fools sails on faced to
Those storms – expression of an age’s end
Unrecognized –  confused around the ways of God
Through scriptures of the Hebrew and the Greek
Which seem to clash and cancel each their vision out
Because how God’s face and the symbols change
With eras’ turn, believers neither see
Nor do they even wish to know. [7]

Not even the apostle gladly suffered fools.
O cross beneath the Southern Cross to endure
The leaders, blind, who block and hinder
On the path, to realize near to cycle’s end
There’s scarcely more of wisdom now than
Greeted Magi at the first! What light
May hope to penetrate the obscuring mists,
The enveloping gloom? It may be none.
What can be justified and known awaits
The next, the coming time whose lightning
Sign divides the sky. Let this awake
The dead and open eyes, the mystery
No more a Bethlehem child, more like
A midnight bridegroom’s wild surprise.[8]

NOTES

[1] Acronychal risings as of Jupiter (rising opposite the sun’s setting) were not miraculous or prodigies like shooting stars, but they were deemed significant, watched for in ancient political astrology and associated with special births. “We have seen his star in the East” should read “we have observed the ascension of his star”, his star being the messianic Jupiter.
[2] Frankincense was the incense of the Temple and had priestly associations. Jesus will be imaged among other things as a high priest [Heb 8:1]  though Jupiter depending also enjoyed royal (princely) associations and in Jesus priestly and princely images merge.
[3] Ancient astrology inclined to more literalistic, fatalistic readings than would apply today. Especially for a presumed ruler, Sun opposite Saturn in a heavy sign for it like Pisces could be seen as a tragic end or execution (perhaps through religious forces given the Jupiter contact) rather than just a  difficult life. Sun opposite Saturn plus potential conjunction conflict with Jupiter corresponds to suffering and the burial incense myrrh in a way theories of “biblical astronomy” don’t with their Jupiter/Venus patterns more akin to lives of the rich and famous (or even lucky devils) than Messiahs!
[4] i.e. this was a night birth with sun in Virgo. The new era was Pisces or rather the Pisces-Virgo era. It is the sign opposite Pisces defines the collective ideal and under Virgo Jesus will represent that to Pisces.
[5] i.e. then unseen, unnamed factors like asteroids have filled in the gaps.
[6] Ps 19:2. The claim that every night the skies are giving knowledge would only be true if as in the astrology Christians deny, heavenly signs were continuous and not exceptional
[7] Confusion over the such differences in imagery and values as the God of the OT being “Lord God of Armies” and N.T. “Prince of Peace” are more explicable in terms of era change, -the militaristic associations of Aries and the more forgiving ones of Pisces, the fires of Aries and the seas of Pisces etc. Christians avoid these obvious facts of traditional astrology while some pursue the often arbitrary and confused “biblical astronomy”.
[8] In one of the apocalyptic parables Christ is the unexpected midnight bridegroom (Matt 25:5). Shocks and lightning are of Aquarius.

RIGHT TIMING A JESUS EVENT AND WHY THE NOW FORGERY-FREE JAMES OSSUARY BOX ALMOST CERTAINLY LINKS TO JESUS’ BROTHER AND FAMILY

[The following is one of many pieces, but an important one, in the puzzle offering unexpected evidence for the above claims from an unexpected quarter…….The much disputed James Ossuary Box, claimed to be the only artefact that can be associated with Jesus’ family, after having been declared free of forgery charges last year is now the centre of a criminal investigation. It is so because IAA investigators and Israeli police have controversially applied a silicon substance they might have known could harm the chances of ever perfectly certifying further issues around the age and authenticity of the box’s vital inscription. My article from last year for a now abandoned site is re-issued, slightly altered here in light of journalist Matthew Kalman’s Nov 10th Blog feature at http://bit.ly/1bNvkF3 which raises the question: can we now ever hope to know the truth? Sadly it looks like we can’t…..unless via the contested route I describe here which offers its own proof, because….how many agreements and coincidences can one have and then just ignore them? I put the point to Kalman, a Guardian and Jerusalem Report journalist who has not acknowledged or replied]

RIGHT TIMING A JESUS EVENT

Over a decade ago in early ‘02 when asked to suggest a good time to launch a Jesus related book of mine in New Zealand, I proposed (what proved impossible to fulfil) the weekend of 19/20 October. I believed Jesus might well be in the news around then, though I wasn’t sure quite how he would be so.

On the 21st Oct news from Israel was announced of a potentially momentous discovery of maybe the world’s only Jesus related artefact. This was an ossuary box inscribed as belonging to James, “the son of Joseph and brother of Jesus”. James died (martyred) in 62 and Israel only produced ossuary boxes between 20 BC and the 70 AD fall of Jerusalem. The three names were common at the time, but the relationship between them in one inscription was obviously suggestive. The limestone is from the right period, but since ‘02 there has been inevitable controversy over whether the inscription could be genuine. The box’s owner Oded Golan was accused of forgery, but after a frustrating decade of legal proceedings was judged innocent of the charges as of 14.3.12.

I suspected Jesus would be in the news in late October ‘02 because in a radical extension of respected researches of astronomers Ferrari D’Occhieppo and David Hughes I claim to know and prove exactly when Christ was born as per my Testament of the Magi (2009). Before saying more on that scepticism and dismissal-inviting and mostly just ignored claim I shall mention the following. In the heavens at the time of the ’02 announcement, what is called the fated nodal axis lay across 10 Gemini/Sagittarius. A decade later on March 14th ’12 with the ossuary (whether related to Jesus’ family or not), declared no forgery, that same axis stood at its almost perfect exact reversal at 9 Sagittarius/Gemini.

HIGHLIGHTING JAMES AS BROTHER

This coincidence might seem to be no more than that except for another rather crucial one. In my data for Christ’s birth (which I happened to discover on March 14th twenty five years ago) the asteroid JAMES falls at 9 Gemini (itself sign of any twins or brothers) and conjuncts besides astrology’s Part of Brothers on the same degree. JAMES in turn is very close to Jesus’ so called ascendant angle (the degree on the horizon when Christ was born). Since angles are affected by major events concerning a person during and even beyond their earthly lives, given factors like the nodes conjuncting this angle and then Neptune (for many modern astrologers the Christ planet) fortunately trine it in late Oct ’02, plus these factors following an eclipse which that year had positively trined Jesus’ destiny/reputation Midheaven angle to within minutes of a degree of accuracy, I could guess Jesus would be in the news in some notable way. (The chart can claim extreme accuracy. As early as 1988 the late Gwen Stoney, an Australian specializing in little used German timing techniques was satisfied the  birth time fell with 30 seconds of accuracy for a painful death for the given date and time of crucifixion in AD 30).

But I had not taken into account something in effect unknowable but relevant. If, as I obviously wasn’t expecting in the twenty first century, anything material such as any artefact could belatedly be linked to Jesus and his family, then that should relate to the most bodily/physically associated sector of his birth chart, namely the ascendant angle. So… if there were any artefact found, factors affecting this ascendant and with links to James and brothers, could well bring out something to do with them too.

A VIRGINITY AND MOTHERHOOD CONTROVERSY

Actually, for many people discovery of the ossuary box brings out something else: a major question around the mother. The Catholic church is sceptical of and opposed to the ossuary not least because Mary is deemed “ever virgin”. Arguments for ossuary authenticity could help undermine belief in perpetual virginity if James could be certified as Joseph’s son by Mary rather than only a cousin or perhaps half brother by some previous marriage of Joseph as per traditions since especially St Jerome.

It happens that the reason that originally I had myself entertained a few doubts the find was genuine was because with Neptune the mystery planet highlighting Jesus’ ascendant there could just be confusion and delusion. However…. Neptune is liable to herald confusion as opposed to illumination when what astrologers call “affliction” (bad aspect) is involved. Neptune in ‘02 was not afflicting the ascendant in that way suggesting deceit. It was if anything registering fortunate shock towards the materially relevant ascendant angle from the surprises sign Aquarius. Moreover, as said, astrologers today regard Neptune, if and when working positively in this way, as the Christ planet itself in religious contexts. So if the Christ planet fortunately trines the ascendant….the artefact would be authentic and could relate to Jesus?

But what might acceptance of the ossuary do to the rather crucial question of the mother and family relationships? We can well ask because the birth pattern shows Jesus’ mother as very much involved with James too.

In astrology the moon is universally the mother symbol. The moon at Christ’s birth fell at 8 Gemini where it conjuncts the Part of Children at 9 Gemini. So James at 9 Gemini ought to be Mary’s child at the same time as being Jesus’ brother. Which means the Virgin wasn’t a virgin? The celestial answer would seem to be….at any rate not perpetually so!

The heavens seem determined only to affirm what the first believers held, namely that Mary was a virgin when she bore Jesus. All said and done, and against every statistical probability, we find Jesus’ maternal moon was conjuncted either side by the only two virgin asteroids in the heavens in any language, namely JUNGFRUN and BETULAH (God’s virgin). And this Gemini moon was not in any fixed sign that would better signal anything as permanent as “perpetual” within the temporal and material realm. The moon was nonetheless challengingly opposed by a conjunction of AETERNITAS (Eternity) and GABOR (The Hebrew word for the strength of God) with the Part of the Father, with its obvious affinity for “the Power of the Most High will overshadow you” (Luk 1:35).

But recall that belief in Mary’s perpetual virginity is first suggested by the probably late second century Protoevangelion of James which an early church father Origen mentions as containing this belief he considered dubious. The gospel is pseudepigraphical, i.e. not authored by the apostle, but still the name and identity of James would now be forever indissociable from mysteries of Mary. So the skies reflect the connection even while they challenge the derivative belief.

A TIME OF RECOGNTION

I doubt these and other coincidences would hang together if the discovery of the ossuary was not somehow significant as the sole artefact linked to Jesus’ name we may possess and are likely now ever to possess. Why else would Christ’s birth data which register to this day for such as Dan Brown and the onslaughts of sceptics as they affect the reputation and understanding of Christ, be registering the case of the James ossuary so closely?

I have a further consideration. In astrology Jupiter is deemed the register of truth in any question. It is also central to the line of inquiry I have long pursued that Jupiter was “his star”, the Star of Bethlehem itself. 9 degrees Taurus is traditionally a critical degree meaning it’s strong and carries special significance. I therefore ask myself why Jupiter, “his star” and register of truth in astrology for any legal affairs, would be on this same critical 9 degrees when judgement gets passed that the ossuary is not a fake? For Jesus’ birth 9 Taurus is significant as a site of recognition. It is his degree of the asteroids ANNA and SPIRIT and even the Part of Spirit – Anna the prophetess in the Temple is said to recognize the child as the Messiah by the Spirit.

It must be conceded in all this that astrologers would raise questions about any supposedly final decision on anything made as the court’s decision was with Mercury in its apparent retrograde motion. By tradition a declaration under that influence could only be subject to revision. But no doubt the argument will go on! We may reasonably suspect in this instance that this Mercury signifies as much and more a call to a more general revision of people’s opinions, everything from the nature of Jesus’ family to the truth of celestial signs in relation to Jesus and life at large.

I am once again compelled to affirm the data for Christ’s birth have been found beyond all reasonable doubt if everyone from secularists to fundamentalists could somehow overcome their various prejudices sufficiently to look at the evidence which always works and rings true down to minor details. (The leading theologian to have argued for and  written on the veracity of the find has never replied to me. For theologians as for scientists astrologers don’t or shouldn’t exist even if they’re doctors of religious studies!). It’s astro-archaeology not archaeology, but significant in its way and more revelatory and wide-ranging than any archaeology for Christ if fragments for such could ever be found. For those who would insist against the surprising claims of the above that Jesus’ brother was anyway really Jacob rather than James, a JACOB asteroid also exists….it’s found at his birth in Jesus’ house of origins and in the same sign, but suitably not conjunct, his disfavoured alienated wife Leah (asteroid LIIA), along with names of his ancestors, rather than his brothers.

In other words the skies are precise, and as one of Jesus’ forebears insisted, they “utter knowledge” (Ps 19). They do so even though as the Church Times would tell us (as they told me in refusing a feature years ago on the subject of Jesus’ natus ), “we know all there is to know about Jesus, we don’t need to know about the Magi”, or as the Archbishop of Canterbury would propose for Christmas 07, the Magi were probably just myth anyway.

Further details emerging:

TORONTO AND JAMES

Back in ’82 the news regarding the James Ossuary was released through – and all the main debates engaged about it have centred in – Toronto. It was also the site of the emergency problem that nearly cancelled the unique public display of the box when it was discovered that transportation had produced unexpected cracks. Where is asteroid TORONTO in Jesus’ birth?

James 9.27 Gemini
Toronto 9.25 Pisces in 10th house of destiny/reputation…..

in other words, Toronto is almost to the minute of a degree in astrology’s classic square affliction aspect of 90 degrees to indicate difficulty, problems, arguments and linked to Jesus’ own reputation and identity too in some way.

AN ISSUE OF MARCH 14th

I was surprised and wondered if it meant anything that declaration against fakery occurred on March 14th. . It was the same day that a quarter of a century earlier I believed I had discovered the birth data for Jesus. Just coincidence? Maybe, but for both dates it highlights sun at 23 degrees Pisces which had always struck me as an odd degree for the discovery. But what does it mark in Jesus’ birth? It is the position of asteroid POOR on an axis (i.e. directly opposite) QUMRAN. The Essenes were alternatively often referred to as “the poor”.

23 Pisces/Virgo has to be the Essene axis of Jesus’ natus. Scholars have often suspected connections of Jesus and/or James with the Essenes – the scholar Eisenman in a massive tome on James, to the eccentric extreme most of us disagree with, and his interventions at Toronto demanding to be heard for his theories weren’t well received. But it was nonetheless the Essenes who searched for the Messiah in the stars. In effect, my discoveries are bringing back the Essenes and an aspect of their teachings which Christianity has rejected and overlooked. Which means that under the rules my own personal astrology should be connected to James and or the Essenes? I hadn’t bothered to look before today.

A JAMES/QUMRAN CONNECTION

In my own natus I found that James stood at 28.21 Libra. On the 14th March when the decision from Jerusalem sent me off into a flurry of messages, Saturn (anything to do with career, reputation and long term aims), was on 28.26 Libra, i.e minutes off exact to James. When I posted a version of this blog on Friday morning it was exact. But where is QUMRAN? It’s natally conjunct my JAMES asteroid at 27.07 Libra. Which means it is in positive trine aspect to my natal Uranus this being the planet of any astrology and astrologers. Essentially one could say I am bringing back some Essenean astrology or astrologizing theology and James is a, or one, of the triggers for this……Necessarily so…. I now see that even at the time I discovered Jesus’ data back in ‘87, James was fortunately trining a world point Midheaven angle making him, as I hadn’t realized till now, vital to the picture. The terrestrial artefact that solely testifies to Jesus is complemented by the more extensive celestial information regarding him.

THE GREAT CHRIST COMET

None of what I claim  is modified by all the (very complicated) claims around the now so-called Great Christ Comet proposed in 2015 by Colin R Nichol.  There is no historical record for the comet and It remains unclear whether this is more a plausible theory or a  phenomenon the Armagh Observatory has actually  traced. However Swiss Astrodienst  supplies measurements for it and to the extent it happens to turn up right on the destiny Midheaven of Jesus’ natal chart it is possible Jupiter/Saturn  was  accompanied and somewhat highlighted at the time by the addition of a comet in the skies..

POPE BENEDICT’S BETHLEHEM STAR

A POPE SUPPORTING AN HISTORICAL CHRISTMAS STORY

To judge from press reports, the most surprising thing about the Pope’s just published reflections on the gospels’ birth and infancy narratives (Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives) is how much they have surprised people by just setting Christ’s birth back a few years. I wrongly supposed most people more or less knew some adjustment of the sort was necessary. Also that the birth was not on Christmas Day or in 1 AD but somewhere between 7 and 4 BC at which last most scholars believe Herod died.

As soon as I read on Twitter that Pope Benedict’s book was proclaiming it was likely Jesus was born under a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction of 7BC, I guessed –  rightly enough as I discovered when I downloaded the Kindle version of the book on the 21st  –  there was some influence here from the researches of the noted Austrian astronomer Konradin Ferrari D’Occhieppo (1907-2007).

Again it seems some Catholics have also been surprised by this too. They are so because the Pope, whom Catholics forget is very German and hence vaguely “Protestant” in terms of biblical scholarship, was prepared to be historical (some would say quasi-fundamentalist) enough to look for actual dates and historical happenings. There is after all a strong Catholic, and even relatively early Christian tradition, which regarded the star as a unique, purely miraculous sign which corresponded to nothing that secular or scientific authorities past or present could hope to nail down. It was thought of as more like the shekinah glory of God, pure light, than any star. Despite Matthew’s poetic licence which makes the Star stop over where Christ was born, overall the vocabulary used and the behavior of the heavenly body is consistent with the idea the gospeller had been told of a planet in such as its apparent retrograde motion and its special ascension and he is evoking that.

A NEEDED CHALLENGE TO RICK LARSON’S STAR

The Pope’s new historical emphasis (which has disposed of animals round the crib but insists against the sceptics upon Bethlehem not Nazareth as place of the birth), is not however as significant as some of us felt it could have been as regards the star within the story. But then, it’s true that a year ago the Pope was declaring the real Star of Bethlehem is the Word of God to light us. Accordingly he was never especially looking for either a specific birth date such as D’Occhieppo did try to work towards, or any notable astrological meanings such as precise data could supply us. The pope simply finds the D’Occhieppo theory plausible but is left wondering what we can make of it. (Without some further astrological input one can’t make too much)

The sole revolution here may be to draw at least some Christians away from the more fantastic views of the Bethlehem Star and Christ’s birth date. These have been on the rise in recent years under the influence of Amazon’s all time best selling documentary film, The Star.  Aggressively promoted, this film is now out and being distributed in many countries and languages and faithfully played in many, especially Protestant, churches at Christmas to enthusiastic audiences.

Rick Larson is a Texan lawyer with enough clout and/or cash to obtain the services of  Stephen McEveety, director of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, to put out his mixture of somewhat quirky historical  “biblical astronomy” views which have Jesus conceived and born under Jupiter/Venus conjunctions in 3 and 2 BC.

Since the years 10-1 BC are not as well recorded for history as some periods but were rich in all manner of astronomical events, speculation can run wild, as it has done. This is, especially the case if you aren’t prepared to allow the magi were, as per the New English Bible, astrologers looking at the cycles of the heavens and reading a special and specialized symbolism…..The Pope for example says nothing about how the conjunctions of 7 BC were occurring in a degree band of the heavens specifically relevant to events in Israel.

The Larson treatment, no matter how questionable, has the seductive power of cinematic glamour with its rich pictorial and musical backing. Some just cannot imagine the information conveyed with such gasping reverence at mysteries of the starry heavens and divine power could possibly be untrue. But it is. It is terribly, terribly wrong. It also serves to prevent people from seeing or knowing the far greater range of information with all their implications and useful messages for our times which the true birth data will provide us.  I endeavour to supply some indication of this in my recent, perfectly ordinary and quite unglamorous You Tube talk Bethlehem Star: Facts and Fiction  at:

www.bit.ly/R7mSIZ

It is backed up by no music and, though one or two have complained about it, no charts or diagrams either – in the past I have been repeatedly told anything like that only confuses people. So I talked non technically and unaccompanied. I hope anyone could understand what’s said. Part Two is more remarkable than Part One which clears the way to and explains what I am prepared to claim, its how and why.

THE MESSAGE OF THE CHRISTMAS STAR: HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW

Whatever else the Pope has got right in his sensible and quite illuminating book, it is unfortunate he does not  suspect the Bethlehem star could be precisely dateable and/or of special meaning. Instead he dismisses it as almost irrelevant to the extent the true star is always the Word of God.

In fact, the Bethlehem star was the messianic Jupiter associated in Jewish astrology with righteousness, not scriptures. Rightly discerned and for the right date and time – which for certain specialized reasons can be pinpointed in the way D’Occhieppo’s researches strove to do – it will tell us much. It can do so because it lies at the centre of an entire larger pattern that more than anything outside the Bible will disclose us Jesus’ destiny and mind.

At the risk of alienating some by the sheer enormity of that claim, I am bound to say the discovery of Christ’s true and completely provable birth data amounts to information akin to a find like the Dead Sea Scrolls. There was much more than an acronychal rising of Jupiter in a zone of the heavens relevant to Israel that the Magi could look for and that we know stargazers were looking for.  Unbeknown to the Magi and not clarified until modern times, like a computer printout the skies were reeling off facts and data by the hundreds like the names and titles of Jesus in super-conjunction in the heavens….You don’t believe me? Then listen to the talk or read my Testament of the Magi  (available Amazon, http://amzn.to/12eP5S8) and don’t let a spontaneous incredulity prevent you. The Psalms did tell you that night to night the skies utter knowledge. If you don’t wish to have that knowledge, the loss and the responsibility are yours.
