Astrology of The Star of Bethlehem
Astrology of the Star of Bethlehem Many of you know the Biblical story of the Star of Bethlehem. Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea during the reign of King Herod. After he was born, the Three Wise Men (who were also astrologers, known as the Magi) arrived in Jerusalem after following Herodís orders to find the King of Bethlehem that was prophesied by the celestial event.

The Christmas Star, or Star of Bethlehem, was found by the three Wise Men to be hanging over the manger of the new born baby Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Originally, these Three Wise Men were commissioned by Herod to tell him all about the new baby, but they decided not to after experiencing negative dreams.

This star was exceedingly bright and astrologers and astronomers have theorized for centuries what celestial event could have taken place at that time to create the glowing light high in the heavens that was followed by the Magi.

It is known that this star was around about a decade before the actual birth of Christ, as its brightness was around as early as the execution of St. John the Baptist, who originally prophesied the coming of Christ in the first place.

One theory is that the Christmas star was actually a supernova, which is essentially the sudden brightening of a star for a period of days or weeks. However, at that time in history, there is no record or possibility of this or even a comet being nearby.

The usual explanation for what happened is that it was caused by a conjunction. A conjunction is a close apparent approach between two celestial objects that causes both to glow.

Basically, a conjunction occurs at the moment when both objects have the same celestial longitude; one is due north of the other. The closer the objects, the more visually stunning the event looks in the sky and the more significant astrologically it happens to be.

During the first few years of what was known as the B.C. (Before Christ) epoch, there was a series of close conjunctions involving Jupiter, the planet that represented kingship, coronations, and the birth of kings. This is how it became associated with the birth of a new Messiah in the first place.

One celestial body that is quite shiny and that was conjunct with Jupiter, the planet of Kings, was Regales, which is also known as the Star of Kings. On top of that, Venus, the planet of Love was also conjunct Jupiter in the sign of Leo, which also has to do with reality and the birth of Kings. In essence, these three planets were lined up in a way that could have them mistaken for being one big glowing star, as is described in the Bible.

How could such information about where these planets were at the birth of Jesus Christ be derived? Well, the science behind all of this is actually quite simple. Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) was the German astronomer, who discovered the physical laws describing planetary orbits. These orbits are so predictable that we can deduce quite accurately what the sky looked like when Christ was born.

The ancient Magi understood apparent planetary motions quite well because they were expert and adept astrologers. Predictions of the conjunction when Christ was born were made 400 years prior to the birth of Christ, and they were in error by only a few days. Astrology certainly can explain what happened in the heavens above Bethlehem to create such a glowing star.
