One More Christmas Star Story!
I’ve been reprinting this every year because it’s so fabulous. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa and have a Cool Yule.
John Charles Webb Jr. left a comment with a link to his site which postulates that the “star” of Bethlehem was not an astronomical event but was in fact an astrological alignment that occurred on March 2, 5 BC (-4). If you run a HELIOCENTRIC (most Western astrologers use a geocentric system that comes down to us from the ancient Greeks) chart for this date you will see this formation of the Seal of Solomon, later called the Star of David. The story of Jesus is of course that he was of the lineage of the Hebrew King David.
This same configuration was present during the planetary alignment in 2003 that was called the“Harmonic Concordance”. This chart was a geocentric chart rather than heliocentric, but still it is a powerful symbol. The Seal of Solomon is known in the three Abrahamic religions, and is called the Star of David by the Jewish people. Astrologically the configuration includes:
· three oppositions
· a mystic rectangle
· two interlocking Grand Trines
· a hexagon of sextiles forming a Grand Sextile
