This is really fascinating.
John Charles Webb Jr. left a comment with a link to his site (now defunct) 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
- two “t-square” formations
Although conventional history teaches that the rotation of our planets around the sun didn’t gain acceptance until Copernicus, others believe that this knowledge was taught much earlier. The recently discovered “Antikythera-Mechanism” which is postulated to date from the first century b.c.e., may be based on a heliocentric model. (Scientists admit to being baffled by the age of the mechanism and unable to decipher its inscriptions. In addition, there are no other scientific innovations in Greek culture from that time period that comes even close to this instrument, making it likely that this “mechanism” comes from an ancient advanced society such as Atlantis or perhaps even another world.)
There is an organization called the “Magi Society” that uses the heliocentric model, and that connection interests me although I don’t have time to research it right now. If anyone has information about the Magi Society that you would like to share, please leave it in the comment section or email me!
