O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright;
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.
Although the teachings of Christianity have reached all corners of the Earth, the birth date of its inspiration - Jesus Christ - is still a point of contention.
From an astrologers point of view this is a great shame since the birthchart of someone so profound should be of exceptional interest and would provide a greater understanding of the man who said to his friends on the eve of his crucifixion  "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my father as well." (John 14.6)

The essence of what Jesus said then was restated with a slightly different slant last century by Indian guru Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952) - his is the same invitation to know God as part of the enlightened self : 'Self-realization is the knowing - in body, mind, and soul - that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it comes to us, that we are not merely near it at all times, but that God's omnipresence is our omnipresence; and that we are just as much a part of Him now as we have ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.'
We know Yogananda's birth details: 5 January 1893 at 8.38 pm in  Gorakhpur, India, at a time when Neptune and Pluto were conjunct. And we know that he had, like Christ, predicted his own death at the time of his second Saturn return coinciding with a Jupiter return with both planets being in a T square with his 5th house Sun. We also know that his body didn't decay after death which is a sign of sainthood in the Christian religion.
The motivation behind Yoganada's teachings was to unify the original teachings of Jesus Christ and the original Yoga taught by Bhagavan Krishna 3,000 years before Christ. Yogananda's aim was: 'To teach that the purpose of life is the evolution, through self effort, of man's limited mortal consciousness into God Consciousness.'
There seems to be a connection between Yogananda and Christ and this should be evident in Christ's birthchart.
When was Jesus Christ Born?
Relatively recent interpretations of  Romano-Jewish historian Josephus indicate that King Herod died on the 26th of January 1 BC rather than in 4 BC as previously thought. 
Working on this premise and using astronomical phenomenon Ernest L. Martin the founder of Associates for Scriptural Knowledge, has deduced Jesus Christ's birth date as being September 11th 3 BC around sunset
A Chart for sunset on that day:
Rectification of Sunset Chart to give Jesus Christ Birth chart
To rectify the sunset chart we need an important date in the life of Jesus and the one of greatest significance is his Crucifixion which occurred on Friday the 3rd of April 33 AD at 3 pm.
Saturn by Solar Arc is close to the IC which is the 'inner' most point in a birth chart, representing the foundation building blocks of the native - home, family and where they came from. When Saturn is at this point (as it is in Christ's chart) it signals a new beginning which would correspond with the beginning of the Christian era and perhaps also with the age of Pisces since Christ's Rising sign is Pisces. If the IC is rectified to Saturn's position of 22 degrees 36 minutes then this corresponds to a birth time for Jesus Christ of 6.15.33 pm giving the birth chart below:
This natal chart with the position of transiting planets at the time of crucifixion - April 3rd, 33 AD at 3 pm is shown below:
Points of note are:
The Resurrection
The actual time of the resurrection is not known, even though the third day is well touted many references say it was actually Sunday morning before daybreak.
Astrologically it would seem to me to be Monday morning around daybreak which would be the third day.
I believe this to be so since at day break (5.48.47 am) on Monday the 6th of April 33 AD the Sun is on the horizon and this creates a series of sextile aspects with Jupiter/Mars, Uranus, the Descendant, Pluto, and Juno that combine to form an aspect pattern known as the 'Star of David' - a traditional Jewish symbol, named after King David who was said to have this arrangement in his birth chart.
Add to this the fact that the Moon is transiting conjunct natal Neptune in the 8th house which can be interpreted as a merging of the emotional self with the collective - and the Moon is sextile his natal Mars in the 10th leaving his mark for providence. Then there's Saturn square the Sun/Ascendant opposite Vesta - 'the keeper of the flame of life'  and forming a T square with the emphasis on the 'not self ' of the Descendant.
The above chart is for daybreak on the Monday, it is well connected to the natal chart of Jesus Christ but it is common to all at that time - it is a time of linking between the 'knowing' of Christ the Father and the omnipresence of God - Jesus Christ was a vehicle of enlightenment and he knew that beyond doubt.
All of this is very profound - as is Jesus Christ's chart itself and although previously I had doubted that Christ actually rose from the dead, I now believe that this may have happened - something that ParamahansaYogananda understood and which was at the heart of his teaching.
