And here I thought I was done with Jesus’ astrological portrait. Ha! The Holy Spirit had me working through progressed charts in my dreams until I finally resolved to look at one for Jesus’ baptism. The timing of that event, in my estimation would have been when he was 33 years and 4 months old. Then I woke up and the time on my bedside clock was
I kid you not…
What I was hoping to see was something significant, something that would prove to me that his birth chart is accurate. Something that would make me go “Wow!”
And Lo! and Behold! Neptune conjunct Scorpio Rising.
For those who have the mind of an astrologer, the date I chose for the Baptism was May 5, 27 AD. That would have been thirty-three-and-a-third years exactly from his birth.
And there is only one inconjunct: it involves Mars, which in this progressed chart is opposite Pluto. The form of Jesus’ mission will be one of speaking Truth to Power.
Mars Inconjunct Midheaven
This aspect can mean that you have mixed feelings about all authority figures, including your parents. You may feel that you have to violate the rules laid down by your parents in order to get your way. This is a significant problem, because if it continues into adulthood, you will have great difficulties with employers. Therefore it is very important that your parents teach you how to express your self-assertive drives without going against their teachings. Unfortunately it is impossible to state how that should be done, because the conflict between self-will, on one hand, and self-denial and work, on the other, is different for each person.
Clearly you should spend a lot of time releasing your great energy in vigorous play. The more energy you use up in this way, the less you will need to assert yourself destructively. You must learn what society demands, such as going to school and doing schoolwork, learning to obey instructions for your own good and so forth.
Another way to solve this kind of conflict is to learn that you can say what needs to be said and not be forced to remain quiet. You can’t expect your elders to always go along with your ideas, but you should be able to feel confident of your right to say it. The exception to this, of course, is that you do not have any right to say something just to hurt others.
