What’s ‘Jewish’ about these US Presidents?

There is an astrological secret about these Presidents of the United States. The birth chart of the first president, George Washington, (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799), shows that he is born in the sign of Pisces.  In the Jewish Lunar Calendar, Washington’s birthday is in Shvat — Aquarius, the sign of friendship. freedom, reform, and rebellion.  

Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) is an Aquarius by the traditional zodiac, born with the Sun located in the sign of Aquarius and by the Jewish Lunar Calendar, Lincoln is also born in the Jewish Lunar Calendar month of Shevat or Aquarius.

Using a calendar date conversion tool to determine on which day of the lunar month Shvat these great presidents were born shows that they were born on the 26th day of Shvat!    The establishment of the USA (Washington) its continued existence (Lincoln) seems to have been destined to fall on the shoulders of two presidents born on the same day!

What is the connection between ear, balance, and Libra?

In astrology every sign of the zodiac has its symbol — Taurus, the Bull, Leo, the Lion — Libra’s symbol is the Balances and symbolizes the ideal of  a balanced relationship in which each person is an equal partner, i. e., equal in importance.

While Jewish Astrology shares this iconic symbol for Libra, its also has another meaning because Libra is associated with the Jewish lunar month of Tishrei, the seventh month.  Jewish tradition celebrates the first day of the seventh month as Rosh Hashanah, the New Year.  This first day is also called the ‘Day of Judgment’.  Thus, Libra, the Balances, is given another profound interpretation: the Scales of Judgment.

And even the name of the sign in Hebrew, Moznaim, from the verb ‘ee-zeyn’ אזן  – to balance – has the same letters as the noun, ‘o-zen’ אזן‘ear’.   New Year’s day has one primary act to perform and that act is to hear the sound of the Shofar!

Mazal/Astrology and Man’s Search for Meaning

 


Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.
Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning


In Kabbalah, we learn that each individual is born according to their specific mazal (destiny or fate) on the day and hour chosen by God to provide the new born the appropriate  opportunities to advance its spiritual development and thus, achieve its life’s fulfillment and thereby, participate in Tikkun ha’Olam, or fixing the world.
