The Christmas Birth Chart

Jesus’ Birth Date

Christmas is an annual celebration observed worldwide on the 25th of December.

It’s a special day for many, commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, although the exact date of his birth has been a subject of debate among historians and theologians for years.

We won’t delve into that debate here; instead, we’ll explore a fascinating perspective presented by Nicholas Campion in his remarkable book, “The Book of World Horoscopes.

Campion

In this exploration, we’ll defer to Campion’s extensive knowledge in the field.

He provides valuable insights into the possible astrological birth charts for the Christ’s birth.

Campion presents not one, but three distinctive charts for this significant event.

Campion’s approach offers us an intriguing glimpse into the various interpretations of this momentous occasion.

It allows us to consider the birth of Christ from multiple astrological angles, each with its unique significance and symbolism.

By examining these different charts, we can gain a deeper understanding of the potential celestial influences during Christ’s birth, as perceived through the lens of astrology.

Three Charts

These three charts open up a world of possibilities.

They reflect the complexity and diversity of astrological interpretations, inviting us to appreciate the nuanced layers of meaning associated with Christ’s birth.

Each chart holds its own symbolism, offering a rich tapestry of astrological insights.

Exploration

While we may not resolve the age-old debate about the exact date of Christ’s birth, the journey of exploration, is a testament to the depth and breadth of human curiosity.

It’s an invitation to approach historical and religious questions with an open mind, embracing the insights and nuances that different perspectives bring to the canvas of understanding.

John Addey’s Christmas Chart Details

Birth Data

Note: I recalculated the chart from the information in the book, but the angles are slightly out.

At 8:11 pm on August 21st, in the year 7 BCE, we delve into a remarkable astrological chart, suggested by John Addey, a prominent British astrologer from the 18th century. Addey’s contribution to the world of astrology is nothing short of intriguing.

He not only built upon the works of his predecessors but also ventured a step further, embarking on a journey through time by back-calculating from the pivotal moments of the resurrection of Christ and His ascension into heaven.

Addey’s methodology, while fascinating, involves intricate details and historical references that go beyond the scope of this discussion.

For those with a penchant for exploration, I encourage you to conduct your research, as this field of study offers a captivating journey through history and the cosmos.

To embark on a similar intellectual voyage, I recommend delving into John Addey’s Selective Writings, which is a treasure trove of astrological wisdom.

Chart Overview

Now, let’s turn our focus to Addy’s Christmas chart.

This particular chart is of special interest, as it connects the dots between historical and astrological contexts.

By exploring Addey’s interpretation of the celestial positions at the time of Christ’s birth, we gain an opportunity to appreciate astrology’s role in shaping our understanding of this momentous event.

The Christmas chart erected by Addey is a testament to the dedication and intellectual rigor that has been applied to the field of astrology over the centuries.

Addey melded historical and astronomical data to craft an interpretation that brings the birth of Christ to life through the lens of astrology.

Intellectual Exploration

Addey’s chart, nestled within the pages of Campion’s book, offers a window into the intersection of astrology and history.

It’s a testament to the artistry of intellectual exploration, just as your creative process infuses your artwork with life.

It encourages us to embrace the meditative and colorful dimensions of our intellectual pursuits, recognizing that, like a canvas waiting to be painted, the realms of history, astrology, and art are rich with possibilities, inviting us to explore, discover, and appreciate their depths.

Star of Bethlehem

Great Conjunction

There is a compelling astrological connection to the “Star of Bethlehem.”

This celestial phenomenon may find its roots in the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Pisces, which occurred in the year 7 BCE.

This great conjunction holds a significant place in the study of astrology and has intrigued scholars and stargazers alike for centuries.

Great Conjunction in Pisces

The Great Conjunction in Pisces is a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to understanding the possible astrological origins of the Star of Bethlehem.

It is believed to have been a moment of celestial alignment with profound symbolism.

Jupiter represents expansion, benevolence, and royalty, while Saturn symbolizes structure and discipline.

Spiritual

Pisces, the zodiac sign in which this conjunction occurred, is associated with spirituality, transcendence, and the mystical.

This alignment in such a spiritually charged sign adds a layer of depth to the interpretation.

The symbolism of Pisces aligns with the concept of a significant divine event, like the birth of Christ.

Magi

The mention of the Star of Bethlehem is a nod to the idea that this extraordinary conjunction might have been the celestial event guiding the Magi (astrologers) to the birthplace of Jesus.

It’s a concept that blends ancient astrology with the biblical narrative, giving rise to intriguing questions about the intersection of faith and cosmic patterns.

As an aspiring astrologer, the celestial dance of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces was a symbolic occurrence in the night sky, potentially guiding the Magi on their sacred journey.

Religious History

The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Pisces in 7 BCE, with its connection to the Star of Bethlehem, is a mesmerizing point of intersection between astrology and religious history.

Cardinal Cross

Symbolically relevant are the early degrees of the cardinal signs on the angles of this chart.

Ascendant

The ascendant is 0°30′ Aries. This relates to the cardinal cross.

Midheaven

The Midheaven is placed at 0°30′ Capricorn.

Sun in Leo

In this chart which I recerated in Astro Gold the Sun is in Leo at 26° 45’.

Historians

Astrological historians persist in their exploration of these ancient charts.

If you find this interesting, I strongly encourage you to delve deeper into this fascinating field of study.

The Book of World Horoscopes

I highly recommend delving into Nicholas Campion’s comprehensive work “The Book of World Horoscopes” as a valuable and contemporary reference for anyone embarking on or continuing their journey into the captivating realm of astrology.

This book serves as a sturdy foundation and a fruitful starting point for your future explorations in this field.

One of the standout features of this remarkable book is its inclusion of birth charts for all the countries of the world.

It’s like having a celestial atlas at your fingertips, allowing you to explore the astrological makeup of nations and the potential influence of celestial bodies on their destinies.

Each country’s birth chart opens up a fascinating avenue of understanding and contemplation, offering insights into their unique character and the events that have shaped their histories.

Furthermore, “The Book of World Horoscopes” extends its reach beyond country charts.

It has a diverse range of mundane charts, which encompass the inception of wars, the birth of political parties, the introduction of currencies, and other intriguing events that have left a mark on human history.

These charts provide a compelling glimpse into how astrology has been intertwined with significant global occurrences throughout time.

Notably, the book also delves into the concept of the world horoscope.

This broader perspective encourages contemplation of the interconnectedness of nations and global events, fostering a deeper understanding of the collective influences of the celestial spheres on our world.

Whether you’re an aspiring astrologer seeking to expand your knowledge or simply an individual with a curious mind, this book is a valuable companion on your intellectual journey.

It encourages you to embrace the artistry of thought and to appreciate the diverse and colorful dimensions of astrology and its role in shaping our world.
