[Greetings. I've touched on this subject in other threads here in the Sabian section of this forum. This is an excerpt from a book I have out on this subject. "A Template for the Time. The Astrological Birth Chart of Jesus." TGS Publishing, Frankston, Texas.
I utilized the day the great American clairvoyant, Edgar Cayce, gave as the correct birth date and combined that with what I had learned concerning proclivities/talents bestowed by a "Casimi" conj. of Pluto and an Asc. and Dane Rudhyars theories and technique.
I'm re-posting here from my thread at astrologyweekly.com. There are many posts' in conjunction with this theory in my Arabic Parts thread here in the Sabian section...I figure someome here might like a more thorough explanation as to why I believe in my theoretical chart...and besides, it's that time of year when this subject gets rolling!]
Greetings. I'm not supposed to do this as per the contract with my publisher...but I'm going to do it anyways...here are excerpts from my book, "A Template for the Time"...from chapter two.
...Let me state again, that right after ascertaining and interpreting Johns' chart. I reread part Three, Chapter 2, "The Cross and the Star", of Rudhyars' book "An Astrological Mandalla", and for the first time in the 20 plus years I have possessed that book, I understood it, thanks to Johns' chart. As Rudhyar goes on to explain in this part of his book. The cross, that is the axis, formed by the horizon and the meridian of one's birth chart, create four points, and these four points, he interprets, are the "WHAT", "WHERE-TO", "HOW" and "WHY" of one's being. I would like to add here that as for, "WHERE-TO", Rudhyar also goes on to infer that an axis of perfect symmetry, i.e., 90° between all four axis points, that include the four points of the Zodiac, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn, all in the first degree, would have been involved in the birth chart of Yeshua of Nazareth. Rudhyar also infers that he believed the first degree of Aries to be the Ascendent, the "WHAT" of Yeshuas' birth chart and the first degree of Libra to be the Descendent, the "WHERE-TO" of the birth chart. With that proposal, the first degree of Cancer is the infered Nadir, the "HOW", and the first degree of Capricorn is thus assigned to the Mid-Haven, the "WHY" of Yeshuas' birth chart. I will not cover his explanation of "The Star". You are invited to read this chapter of Rudhyars' book and get this information for yourself as it is not immediately pertinent to the material I'm presenting.
Aries 1°, "A Woman Just Risen From The Sea, A Seal Is Embracing Her. Keynote: Emergence of new forms and of the potentiality of consciousness. This is the first of the 360 phases of a universal and multilevel cyclic process which aims at the actualization of a particular set of potentialities. These potentialities in the Sabian symbols, refer to the development of man's individualized consciousness-the consciousness of being an individual person with a place and function [a 'destiny'] in the planetary organism of the Earth, and in a particular type of human society and culture."
"To be individually conscious means to emerge out of the sea of generic and collective consciousness-which to the emerged mind appears to be unconsciousness. Such an emergence is the primary event. It is the result of some basic action: a leaving behind an emerging from a womb or matrix here, symbolized by the sea."
"Such an action is not to be considered a powerful, positive statement of individual being. In the beginning is the Act; but it is often an imperceptible, insecure act. The small tender germ out of the seed does not loudly proclaim its existence. It has to pierce through the crust of the soil still covered with the remains of the past. It is all potentiality and a minimum of actual presence."
"In the symbol therefore, the emergent entity is a Woman; symbolically speaking, a form of existence still close to the unconscious depths of generic biological nature, filled with the desire to be rather than self assertion. The woman is seen embraced by a seal because the seal is a mammal which once had experienced a biological, evolutionary but relatively unconscious emergence, yet which retraced its steps and 'returned to the womb' of the sea. The seal, therefore, represents a regressive step. It embraces the Woman who has emerged, because every emergent process at first is susceptible to failure. This process is indeed surrounded by the memory, the ghosts of past failures during previous cycles. The impulse upward is held back by regressive fear or insecurity; the issue of the conflict depends on the relative strength of the future-ward and the past-ward forces."
"The possibility of success, and that of failure is implied throughout the entire process of actualization. Every release of potentiality contains this two-fold possibility. It inevitably opens up to two paths, one leads to 'perfection' in consciousness, the other to 'disintegration'-the return to the undifferentiated state, [the state of humus, manure, cosmic dust- i.e. to the symbolic 'great Waters of space', to chaos]."
"This symbol characterizes the first of five stages which are repeated at three levels. This stage represents the initial statement, or theme, of the five-fold series which refers to the first level: IMPULSE TO BE."
[I must comment here that Rudhyar divided the 360 degrees/symbols into four "Acts"; each "Act"
