The Feeding of the 5,000 (January 31, 29 AD)
Another ‘hint’ from the Rudolf Steiner book I’ve been reading has led me to this event.
‘In Palestine during the time that Jesus of Nazareth walked on Earth as Christ Jesus—during the three years of his life, from his thirtieth to his thirty-third year—the entire being of the Cosmic Christ was acting uninterruptedly upon him, and was working into him. The Christ stood always under the influence of the entire cosmos; he made no step without this working of the cosmic forces into and in him.… It was always in accordance with the collective being of the whole universe with whom the Earth is in harmony, that all which Christ Jesus did took place.’
From these words it is clear that it was not mere coincidence that there was a conjunction between the Sun and the mega star Deneb at the feeding of the 5,000, and that the cosmic forces streaming from Deneb were transmitted via our Sun and were received and transmitted further by Christ at the time of the miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish. Here the word “conjunction” means a conjunction in longitude, both at 10½° Aquarius.Dann, Kevin; Powell, Robert.

So, the only date that works is the end of January 28 or 29 AD. Matthew suggests that Jesus went off for some solitude after hearing the news of John the Baptist’s death. Because John’s death was in late August 28 AD (according to my calculations), only January 31, 29 AD would work for me. (However, this seems to me to be a long time between John’s death and Jesus hearing about it, so something cannot be right.)
But in spite of my concerns, here’s what the chart looks like:
Like the Raising of Lazarus, the image of the aspects in the centre of the chart is quite startling. Uranus on the Ascendant @ 0 degrees Leo makes the miracle come alive. The Sun and Jupiter conjunct near the Descendant allows us to see the ‘expansion’ of energy involved. The Moon and Neptune are conjunct in Capricorn in the 6th House (of Service), the result being seen as a miracle. But only five loaves and two fish? Wow, eh?
We are told that this event happened at the end of Jesus’ ministry to the people of Galilee.
