Rev. Pam Crane’s horoscope for Christ


When was Jesus Christ born? This is a question that has interested astrologers for many a long year. The 8th century Persian/Jewish astrologer Masha’Allah certainly drew up a horoscope for the birth. He used the date of the vernal equinox prior to the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction of 25BC. Many astrologers contend that the bright star the magi followed, was in fact a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction. Since then a few other astrologers have attempted the same, Cardan, who was working in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century, or John Butler working in the 17thC. In the 20th Century, the English astrologer John Addey – again based his horoscope around the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Pisces in 7 BC. In her book the Draconic Chart, Reverend Pamela Crane puts forward the suggestion that Christ was actually born on May 7th 0005 BC, at Bethlehem in present day Israel. “There are eighteen years between one set of spring eclipses and the next. Knowing already the limited time-frame in which they had to fall – between the famous series of Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions of 7 BC and the death of Herod in 4 BC ..” (page 21). On the date that Pam Crane chose, the Draconic* and the Tropical Zodiacs coincide. Rev. Pam Crane’s Horoscope for Christ: May 7th 0005 BC, 18.43, Bethlehem, Israel.


The chart shown is the Draconic horoscope. Revn Pam Crane wrote her book in 1999. Using Solar Fire, the two zodiacs – Tropical and Draconic do not line up exactly, while they do in her book. Solar Fire gives the tropical north node as being 28 degrees 31 Pisces – and the Moon at 0 degrees Gemini 21. So there is a slight mis-alignment when you place both horoscopes in a bi-wheel. Perhaps software has improved somewhat in the last years – or it could be that Solar Fire is out. These are the only differences between both charts. I haven chosen to show the Draconic chart, because clearly Pam Crane is working with the Draconic Zodiac.

*The Draconic Zodiac is constructed around the North Node of the Moon. The tropical zodiac begins at zero degrees Aries, the Draconic Zodiac begins with the Moon’s North Node at zero degrees Aries – and the North Node is always at this position in a Draconic Horoscope. To draw up your own Draconic horoscope, you simply reduce the planets to their celestial longitude and subtract from each one, the of degrees of the Moon’s North Node. For example, Sun at 16 Gemini, reduces to 76 degrees of celestial longitude. If the Node is as 5 Taurus, this reduces to 35 degrees of celestial longitude. 76 – 35= 41. The Draconic Sun is at 11 degrees Taurus.  The recipe is: planet/house cusp minus Moon’s North Node = Draconic Planet/Cusp. If the Node is further on in the zodiac than the planet or cusp, simply add 360 degrees to the planet/cusp position before subtracting. All the planetary positions and angles in the chart are re-calculated in this way. If you are using Solar Fire, in the chart entry section, simply chose Draconic Zodiac instead of Tropical.

The Draconic Horoscope – is the horoscope of the soul: “If modern man is still “In Search of a Soul”, then let him turn to the Draconic Zodiac where he will discover the patterns of his older and ordinarily higher self; for the status of the soul is shown at the point of its entry into material life”. (Rev. Pam Crane, Draconic Zodiac, page 46).

Information on Masha’Allah, Cardan, Butler – comes from The Book of World Horoscopes, Nicholas Campion.
