Jesus the Capricorn

I’m not really religious. And I don’t follow horoscopes. So I don’t know why I found this interesting, but i did. Sometimes I really can’t explain why these things rattle around up there. Anyways, Jesus was a Capricorn (December 22 – January 19).

Here is the basic profile of a Capricorn… and also Jesus:

Determined, single-minded, directed, serious, productive, competitive, ambitious, patient, industrious, tenacious, conservative, strong, planning, a natural leader, self-disciplined, cool, reserved, dignified, authoritative, organized, goal-oriented, workaholic, responsible, relentless, traditional, goal-oriented, but can be rigid, egocentric, opportunistic, ruthless, thrifty, stingy, pessimistic, repressed

Here is Jesus’s horoscope (horoscope.com) for today:

“A string of positive influences will continue to make your day a positive one, but avoid the temptation (no problem Jesus rocks at this) to bask in yesterday’s successes, because you’ll miss today’s equally fabulous opportunities. A new idea that seems initially unfeasible needs only a little tweaking to make it work!”

Talk amongst yourselves…

    Though we celebate the birth of Jesus on December 25th, most likely He was born in the fall, not in the winter.

    There are other, more detail oriented manuscripts dedicated to the topic. You should also check out the correlation between he and Horus.

  3. For more information on this subject, don’t forget to check out Kris Kristofferson’s 1972 album “Jesus Was a Capricorn”.

    Hee hee. Great post!

    Russ: Awesome information. How do you know that? And more importantly, why do we celebrate the wrong date??? Don’t leave me hangin’… ooo prolly not that best choice of words considering the crucifixion and all…

    Dana: Thanks for the link. I’ll check it out.

    Jimsmuse: Wow. I didn’t realize there was an album called this. This proves there is no such thing as an original thought.

  5. In the spirit of full disclosure, I should mention that “Jesus Was a Capricorn” is a pretty corny country song and not all that informative.

    However, my mother had the album when I was a kid and played it about one million times in my annoyed presence. I figure it is only fair to foist it off on future generations.

    I spoke too soon. Sorry. I should have simply said that we do not know the date of His birth. Here is one argument concering His birthday from Wikipedia:

    October
    Another argument (Reference[not in citation given]), that relies only on dates named in the Bible, places Jesus’ birth on the 15th day of the seventh Jewish month during Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. This is based on the time when Zechariah, father of John the Baptist, was ministering in the temple, and received an announcement from God of a coming son. The Bible states that Zecariah’s term of ministry was in the “eighth course of Abia”, a period dated according to Hebrew calendar in the Old Testament. If John was conceived soon after, and Jesus’ conception was six months after John, then Jesus was born during the first day of the feast of the tabernacles. This is an engimatic reference because the Gospel of John introduces Jesus in this manner: “the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (KJV). The word used for “dwelt” literally means “tabernacled” – i.e. God’s Word became flesh and put his tent up among ours. (Reference)
