Star: 6 – The Sun: The Local Star (part 2)

Some people have a problem with the fact that Jesus seemed to have a ‘fun’ side to his personality. Perhaps utilizing his Chinese Astology sign will help us to understand this.

Push-Me-Pull-You

Let us now discuss the fact that Jesus was born in the Chinese year of the Goat. According to Suzanne White in The New Astrology, the combined influence of Capricorn and the Goat on an individual gives a “push-me-pull-you” effect which causes a lot of internal anguish, because the Goat is so sensitive and Capricorn is ambitious.

I hesitate to say that this person is a born leader. Yet, despite all the whimsy and the flimsy, this character is a veritable monument of magnetism. Properly applied, the blend of wise Capricorn and sensitive Goat is unbeatable. There’s something about the very disparity of characters involved that creates a synergy capable of uncanny attraction. The inventiveness of Goat can best be put to material use by the steady Capricorn. If the combination works, that is if Goat is controlled most of the time by Capricorn, the charge is electric, to say the least.

Two separate issues about Jesus are resolved by understanding the conflict between the oriental Goat nature and the occidental Capricorn personality:

What’s most delectable about this person is that although he is an almost religiously strict Capricorn, he knows better than all other Capricorns how to let loose. In his off-duty moments, you would guess him to be a wild-eyed Taurus/Dragon or at least a murky Scorpio. He loves to dance and sing and generally carry on. Capricorn/Goats have huge reserves of charisma.

Now the tax collectors and “sinners” were all gathering around to hear him. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there is more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” (Luke 15:1-7)

The Dancing Savior

An alternative source about the other side of Jesus’ nature can be found in Stephan A. Hoeller’s Jung and the Lost Gospels, Chapter 7 “The Dancing Savior”:

All of the {bewildering number of characterizations of Jesus today} demanding our attention are based on what until recently constituted the only evidence concerning this mysterious figure, namely the New Testament. And the New Testament evidence itself is confusing and contradictory. Some of the canonical Gospels portray Jesus as quite human, even sensuous: “The son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘behold a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners’” (Matt. 11:19). His association with women is represented as causing a scandal: “And they marveled that he was talking with a woman” (John 4:27). “There were also women looking on from afar…and also many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem” (Mark 15:40).

This contradiction, the author explained, could be best understood if the idea of the Gnostic Christ is accepted as the basis of Jesus’ behaviour: The task of the messianic messenger was to help human beings discover who they truly are, and to assist them in overcoming the inimical cosmic powers and rejoin the fullness of the true light. “Salvation” thus became synonymous with “liberation,” and the way to this state was envisioned not as consisting of faith but of interior liberating experience facilitated by the teachings of the Liberator and by the sacramental mysteries he entrusted to his followers.

The Five Initiations

So, liberation from the earth required a Sun in Capricorn individual to demonstrate, by example and teaching, the five initiations. According to Errol Weiner, from Transpersonal Astrology:

A human being has to undergo five major initiations to achieve Mastery over nature. This was the deeper significance of the life and teachings of Jesus, for the birth, baptism, transfiguration, crucifixion and resurrection represented these five initiations.

From Jung and the Lost Gospels: It is perhaps no exaggeration to say The Gospel of Philip is primarily a manual of Gnostic sacramental theology, in other words, an account of the Gnostic mysteries. The fountain of these mysteries, according to this gospel, is Jesus himself:

The Lord worked all things as a mystery; a baptism and an anointing and a eucharist and a redeeming, and a bride-chamber. (68)

I believe that the above listing of the five mysteries in a more accurate rendition of the initiations which Jesus’ chart represents as the points of the pentagram:

1) baptism = primordial water (birth) = Moon/Cancer;
2) anointing = spiritual fire (baptism) = Mars/Aquarius;
3) eucharist = transforming earth (transfiguration) = Pluto/Virgo;
4) redeeming = sacrificial fire (crucifixion) = North Node/Aries;
5) bride-chamber = revivifying water (resurrection) = Venus/Scorpio.

Five-Pointed Star

I intend to utilize the five-pointed star on Jesus’ birth chart to show the actual path of the spiritual initiate as a human being. But in order to do so, may I remind you that the “normal” method of drawing out a five-pointed star involves a series of lines beginning at the top, connecting to the right “leg”, then the left “hand”, then over to the right “hand”, back down to the left “leg”, and then returning to the top position? This will prove to be significant later when we discuss Venus.

Once a person receives his energy from the Sun, it must be used. That is where Mars comes into the picture, the subject of our next chapter.
