Star: 11 – North Node: The Star of Destiny

If Jesus’ destiny was to be “a man born to be king” then his death must surely show that Jesus was a physical symbol, a re-enactment of the Osiris legend, where the king is killed, in order to be reborn, thereby redeeming his people.

Jesus’ Trial before Pilate

We are now down to the point of Jesus’ life: Pilate sentencing him to death.

Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people, and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was inciting the people to rebellion. I have examined him in your presence and have found no basis for your charges against him. Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us; as you can see, he has done nothing to deserve death. Therefore, I will punish him and then release him.” {Now he was obliged to release one man to them at the feast.}

With one voice they cried out, “Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!” {Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.}

Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them. But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

For the third time, he spoke to them: “Why? What crime has this man committed? I have found in him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore, I will have him punished and then release him.”

But with loud cries they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed. So Pilate decided to grant their demand. He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, the one they asked for, and surrendered Jesus to their will. (Luke 23:13-25)

Ecce Homo


Ecce Homo


The fact that Pontius Pilate found no fault in Jesus echoes the “spotless” sacrificial lamb that is killed annually for the saving of all the people of Israel on the Day of Atonement. Mars is the ruler of Aries, the sacrificial RAM, the sign in which the North Node is situated in Jesus’ birth chart, and several elements of its rulership show up as descriptions of Mars in deVore’s Encyclopedia of Astrology:

Significators – Mars: Steel, cutlery, weapons of war, sharp tools, and those who use them, fires, slaughter houses, mortuaries.

In Horary Astrology – Mars: If favorably aspected, a strong and aggressive friend; if unfavourably aspected, a revengeful enemy; surgeons, chemists, soldiers, munitions manufacturers; all who use sharp instruments; rough and uncultured persons; thieves, and such as live by violence.

In Mundane Astrology – Mars: Military leaders; surgeons; persons liable to die; engineers; agitators, incendiaries, criminals and crime of violence; wars.

Vegetation and Herbs – Mars: …also trees with thorns.

So, here we have a whole boatload of information with just one significant “death point” planet: a man thought to be an agitator by the military leaders, made to wear a mock crown of thorns, was hung on a tree made into a cross, between two thieves (one of whom was sarcastic, the other sympathetic), offered some chemical substance to deaden his pain, and was finally killed by a soldier who thrust a spear into his side…

The Crucifixion Chart

Jesus’ Crucifixion chart


Sun – 14 Aries 02′
Moon – 8 Libra 02′
North Node – 2 Gemini 34′
Mercury – 2 Taurus 19′
Venus – 28 Aquarius 41′
Mars – 4 Capricorn 27′
Jupiter – 23 Pisces 13′
Saturn – 6 Gemini 53′

3rd House cusp – 12 Virgo 35′
5th House cusp – 18 Scorpio 50′
6th House cusp – 23 Sagittarius 34′

One strong Yod (Finger of God) is Saturn and Uranus pointing at (surprise, surprise) Mars.

The most potent indicator in the number of degress of the Sun (in Aries, note) of what was, that 14 is the number of Osiris, symbolic of the number of pieces that Isis found after he was killed and dismembered by Set. The missing part is the phallus, which brings me again to the planet which rules Aries. The image of Mars in its glyph is a circle with an erect phallus. Therefore, symbolically, this crucifixion was one of dismemberment, sacrificially, as if the RAM were being de-horned, and making him impotent. The “crown of thorns” could be a euphemism for such an event, considering that Jesus was re-enacting Osiris’ sacrifice for the good of his people. There are many things hidden here.

But most importantly, Jesus’ natal Mars is at the exact “death point” of 17° Aquarius, which is the Eighth House cusp of his ‘fatal’ chart. Also, in my original chart drawn up from hand-calculated there is an echo of the five-pointed star in this chart, which shows that it is the culmination…

Comparison of both charts

Jesus’ original crucifixion chart


As we compare the planetary positions in the Birth and Crucifixion charts, their aspects demonstrate the energies which, as the ‘fatal’ planets transit the natal positions, could “trigger” the event.

Fatal Sun: square natal Sun.
Fatal Moon: conjunct natal Ascendant.
Fatal Mercury: sextile natal Uranus.
Fatal Venus: square natal Venus.
Fatal Mars: sextile natal Uranus.
Fatal Jupiter: conjunct natal Jupiter.
Fatal Saturn: square natal Uranus.
Fatal Uranus: inconjunct natal Uranus.
Fatal Neptune: square natal North Node.
Fatal Pluto: square natal Pluto.

And the fact that the ‘point of death’ is 17° Aquarius means that Jesus (as the ascended Christ) will return in the middle of the Age of Aquarius, a time which is just beginning: Its symbol represents a stream of water, symbolizing the servant of humanity who pours out the water of knowledge to quench the thirst of the world.

…To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. (Revelation 21:6b)

The Crucifixion


Dali’s Crucifixion


According to the Encyclopedia of Astrology, Aries is: The Ram. Its symbol represents the head and horns of the ram. It is a symbol of offensive power — a weapon of the gods, hence an implement of the will. Ruler: Mars. Symbolic interpretation: Sprouting seeds; fire in eruption; a fountain of water; a ram’s horns.

As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). There they offered him wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. Above his head they placed the written charge against him: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. Two robbers were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”

In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.

From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” — which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”

Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. But the rest said, “Leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was a son of God!” (Matthew 27:32-54)

There are many indicators in the above passage that the placement of the North Node in Aries is correct as a symbol of the fourth initiation, Crucifixion. Jesus was crucified on The Place of the Skull (the head); he was reminded that he predicted that he would destroy the temple; his death was accompanied by an earthquake.
