The Star of Bethlehem: a review


It’s been 23 years since I first wrote about Jesus of Nazareth’s birth chart. I serialized it here on WordPress over three years ago. But no one has written a review, until now.

First of all, it is not an easy feat to achieve: writing a review of something one has written. In fact, it’s quite a cheek to do so, since someone else’s opinion is more objective than the author’s.

Secondly, I must admit to hardly writing any of it, since most of the quotes making up the manuscript come from others who were brave enough to share their insights with the world.

But the astrology part is at the centre of the story, here, so I can hardly not take some credit for the manuscript’s creation.

Is Jesus a Real Person?

This is where things get muddled. The legends of his life are mostly based on the New Testament, which was not a ‘factual’ bible as such, but a series of remembrances taken down years after the events. That makes this whole enterprise suspect.

And yet, people like Edgar Cayce have visited the Akashic records and have given first-hand descriptions that are based on psychic readings. Even Taylor Caldwell went under hypnosis and told her own story as Mary Magdalene’s mother. She later wrote a book about Judas Iscariot.

But if it hadn’t been for the Dead Sea Scrolls, we might still be in the dark about the Gnostics and their affiliation with the Teacher of Righteousness.

What about the Pentagram?

The symbol at the heart of Jesus’ birth chart has been a bit of an issue for me. It implies something feminine, something subversive, and when inverted, something diabolical.

The whole of the manuscript tries to get a handle on what this symbol actually represents for Jesus. The most obvious is that he had an affinity with women. And the women in his story are more ‘alive’ than the disciples, at least in our understanding.

But, does this mean that Jesus could have had a perfect blending of masculine and feminine traits? I think so.

Did He Die on the Cross?

That was a bit of synchronicity for me. I drew up his ‘exit’ chart and compared it to his birth chart and then discovered that the line up of the Ascendant and Midheaven in both created a definite + cross. That made it real for me.

In my opinion, he had done what he set out to accomplish. He crucified himself in reality.

Finally, Did He Resurrect on the Third Day?

It wasn’t until I came across the book “I Was Carlos Castaneda” that I began to understand that one can physically live on in a bodily form after death, as long as there are no emotional issues left outstanding. That was startling to me. Up until that time, I presumed that his body had been revived, something along the lines of “The Passover Plot”.

Now I see differently. And if you are willing to read the manuscript in its entirety, you could, too.

Happy trails…
