It never ceases to amaze me the kinds of things that can go on in the name of religion.
The people who started all of them were undoubtedly the wisest, most enlightened beings and their teachings were beyond reproach but some of their followers over the centuries….
These travesties happen in all religions so it seems to me there must be something in the charts of the avatars that points to it as a possibility. Maybe a particular aspect that they themselves have transcended but still lingers to have a dodgy impact many moons later.
For the last 20 or so years the world has been particularly aware of the extremist atrocities perpetrated by a very small number, but in the name of Islam.
Why does this happen ? Perhaps a glance at the chart of Mohammed might reveal something.
Now some astrologers might be a bit reluctant to publish the chart of the Prophet, in case the wrong people mistake the symbolic representation to be a cartoon.
Je ne veux pas être Charlie, but if anyone tries anything I’ll tell my mate Donald Trump and then they’ll be sorry.
But just to be on the safe side I’ll quote stuff that’s already in print on the Astrodatabank website and Wikipedia page.
” Mohammed was the Arabian founder of Islam. He was orphaned at an early age and brought up under the care of his uncle Abu Talib. He later worked mostly as a merchant, as well as a shepherd, and was first married by age 25, with a widow fifteen years older. Being in the habit of periodically retreating to a cave in the surrounding mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer, he later reported that it was there, at age 40, that he received his first revelation from God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that “God is One”, that complete “surrender” to Him (lit. islām) is the only way acceptable to God, and that he himself was a prophet and messenger of God, in the same vein as other Islamic prophets. ”
A lot of enlightened spiritual leaders have the Grand Trine, usually in Water signs including the Dalai Lama – see Been Here Before, Ramakrishna and Jesus – see Is this the Birthchart of Jesus Christ.
In fact Mohammed’s chart and Capricorn Research’s version of Christ’s have a lot of similarities.
Both have the Sun in an Earth sign at the base of the chart in opposition to a close Jupiter / Saturn conjunction at the top.
Its true that the Jupiter / Saturn conjunction occurs every 20 years, but after 54 AD, it did not appear in a Water sign until Mohammed’s birth in 571.
As well as sharing a Grand Trine in Water, both have Mars in the same element.
They also both have an extremely compassionate Venus / Neptune conjunction.
Both Jesus and Mohammed have their Suns near the base of the chart in Earth signs. This strikes me as starting from humble origins, particularly when compared to the Buddha who was born a prince with the Sun in the 10th house.
Mohammed’s early life as a merchant fits quite nicely with the Sun in Taurus in the 3rd house.
The Sun is opposite a Jupiter / Saturn conjunction in the 9th house which shows that he would become one of the most influential people in history.
It also suggests his mountain retreats ( Saturn ) and the insights gained ( Jupiter ) after a penetrating and intense ( in Scorpio ) period of study of the highest wisdom ( 9th house ).
The result of this opposition is found in the apex T Square planet Uranus ( sudden enlightenment ) and surrender of the sense of an individual self ( in the 12th house ).
My suggested date for Mohammed’s enlightenment is 23rd July 611 when the Moon, Mars, Saturn and Uranus all formed a Grand Trine in Water connecting closely with his Venus / Neptune conjunction.
The Sun was also creating a Grand Cross with his Sun / Jupiter / Saturn and Uranus.
The chart of a great master and prophet would not only symbolise his own life but also to a degree the life of the religion that follows him.
A great spiritual teacher who had his roots in the Islamic / Sufi tradition, George Gurdjieff used to say it’s not about the message but the level of being attained by the person interpreting it.
According to Gurdjieff, someone who was operating at base level one would take the highest, noblest truth and convert it into a reason to kill others.
Astrological symbols operate within a spectrum so we can see both the top end and the bottom end. So its possible, if we look to find characteristics of some of the worst excesses of Muslim fundamentalism in this chart.
And no astrological image has such scope for extremes as Saturn in Scorpio.
I have long held the view that the 3rd house represents the lower faculties of human thought and the 9th the higher potential.
So you could say that a very small number of the followers of Mohammed are a bit dim ( Sun in Taurus in the 3rd house ).
If heaven were to exist anywhere in an astrological chart it would have to be the 9th house. As Scorpio is in the 9th house, suggesting that heaven could be seen as a place of sexual reward. In which case Saturn would symbolise someone who has been untouched.
So we get the idea of some idiots ( Sun in Taurus in the 3rd ) thinking they will be rewarded by virgins ( opposite Saturn in Scorpio ) in heaven ( in the 9th house ). And lots of them ( conjunct Jupiter ).
The result of the tension in this opposition focuses on the apex Uranus in the 12th house, so they become suicide ( 12th ) bombers ( explosion = Uranus ).
The vast majority of people on hearing of this absurd cosmic reward system would think wtf, a few intellectually challenged madmen would say where’s the semtex, but Capricorn Research asks why is it 72 ?
Why not 57 or 103 or any other number ?
The use of number in scripture is always very important because people in those times understood that numbers have symbolic meaning.
In the article The World Was Created on October 22nd 4004 BC, I mention the use of the number 144 to symbolise everyone, because it is the 12 signs of the Zodiac squared.
On this evidence, 72 would symbolise half of the total number of everyone in heaven. So the fundamentalist make up of paradise would be half virgins and half deranged suicide bombers.
We can only hope that Saturn in Scorpio does not only symbolise the sexually untouched but also the extremely old, so that the reward for these young ISIS fanatics would be a load of old crones shuffling along on their Zimmer frames.
What is it about heaven and virgins anyway ? It seems even the Almighty himself is keen on them.
So while on a roll dissing the absurdity of one type of religious belief, Capricorn Research is happy to turn on another one.
Most reports seem to suggest that the Virgin Mary was 12 or 13 years old when she gave birth to Jesus.
She was betrothed to Joseph who it is suggested was about 90 years old at the time. Perhaps he had been an Islamic fundamentalist in his earlier life and was about to get his reward just before he died.
Joseph was quite pissed off on hearing that his young wife to be was already pregnant and was planning to abandon her, but the Angel Gabriel appeared to him and explained the situation and told him to look after Mary and the baby.
Capricorn Research has worked out that Jesus was born at 11. 30 pm on September 15th, 7 BC.
What about a chart for Mary. Most pundits seem to make her about 13 when she gave birth to Jesus, so by my reckoning that makes her born in 20 BC.
What date though ?
Mary’s feast day in a number of countries is May 1st, a celebration of fertility. These things happen for a reason, so I’m going to use that as her birthday.
This chart works on a number of fronts.
The Sun in Taurus in the 7th house emphasises the fertility issue.
The Moon is in Virgo, which is self explanatory.
She has a powerful T Square with a Jupiter / Pluto opposition which focuses onto the apex Sun.
Jupiter returns to the same point at the time of the immaculate conception. And the end of November 8 BC would be a particularly good time for that event.
This chart really does seem to suggest God descending into human form.
If God is to be found anywhere in an astrological chart, an apex Sun in Sagittarius in the 9th house must be as good as anything. But don’t tell any Sagittarians as they think they’re already the almighty.
A Uranus / Saturn conjunction in Pisces also seem to suggest something very unusual emanating from the beyond.
And a Mars / Pluto conjunction in Virgo in the 7th house, points to impregnating a virgin.
The Moon / Mercury / Venus conjunction in Scorpio also in the 9th house seems to give a fair idea of whats going on as well – some seriously divine sex.
So Joseph was 90 and Mary was 12. What can we say about a young girl who gets married to a very old man and then knocked up by a much older one ?
It seems like the line between sainthood and paedophilia is very fine.
Virgo or Scorpio ? We are sold quite distinctly different images of these two signs. Which does fit the way the church has portrayed women down the years.
With all that worship of Mary, perhaps it’s not surprising that some of the Catholic priesthood have got confused.
The film Spotlight focuses on the investigation into cases of widespread and systemic child sex abuse in the Boston area by numerous Roman Catholic priests.
Interestingly the chart for Spotlight’s release emphasises both signs.
The noon chart for the release of the film places the Sun in Scorpio in the 9th house of religion.
And a stellium including the Moon and a Venus and Mars conjunction in Virgo in the 8th house.
If this chart depicts anything it shows combining sex with innocence. It seems to show the thinking of the Catholic abusers, that they somehow, in a strange perverted way feel they have a divine right to abuse these children.
Virgo or Scorpio, virgin or whore.
Many would say that it’s two sides of the same coin and as long as women are portrayed in these ways, some men will always exploit them whether in this life or the next.
