Are John the Baptist and Raphael Connected?

Raphael (March 28, 1483 – April 6, 1520)

This is another link-up as suggested by Rudolf Steiner. Because he was a contemporary of Michelangelo (whose paintings I admire), I would never have thought about looking at Raphael’s birth chart. As luck would have it, my Kepler 7.0 program has a copy.

I’m not going to argue about it’s accuracy, as I don’t know enough about Raphael‘s life. But we do know a lot more about John the Baptist’s beheading, due to the scriptures.

Here is a comparison of the two charts:

In the Steiner book, the Julian calendar dates made this a little messy to compare. In fact, it suggested that John was born on June 4, 2 BCE. Obviously, no one did the same calculations that I did: John would have been born in 7 BCE, due to the fact that his mother (Mary’s cousin) was already pregnant when Gabriel announced Mary’s news.

Here are the two natal charts, compared:

John’s birth time is randomized, but the two charts have some very strong links, especially with the North Nodes and South Nodes being conjunct (along with a conjunction to Raphael’s Saturn), and Raphael’s Sun (in Aries) being opposite John’s Ascendant (in Libra).

This is not conclusive, but mostly suggestive of reincarnation.

What strikes me as strange is how a rough-and-tumble prophet (John) should come back as a specially refined artist (Raphael). Wonders never cease to amaze me.
