Father Martin Luther, a student of theology, posts 95 Theses


Marc Jones starts off How to Learn Astrology with an enigmatic chart for Martin Luther, a cleric that he held in great esteem. There was a lot of research to uncover the basis for the chart, when asked Jones would say, “figure it out yourself,” and when this project was just starting, we did.

Cardano-Jones gives Luther the ascendant of Leo 1, a “symbol of overwhelming potentiality” a case of apoplexy. Reverend Luther is a bundle temperament type. Joanne Wickenburg in “Your Hidden Powers: Intercepted Signs and Retrogradation” writes that a very wide house typically contains a whole sign with neither its beginning or end touching the cusps, is an interception. The energies of that sign don’t have a house to act out and there is no area of life is directly represented by the sign. Instead look to its ruler… For Luther his fifth house is intercepted and its ruler is the Sun found in his first house. Thus, for Luther instead crating artistic works his great ingenuity came out through his own personality and scholarship.

Next the question was what house system did Marc use? He was a major proponent of the Placidean, but that did not match the chart in the book. It took some while when discovered he used Luther’s friend Regiomontanus’s method, which coincidentally is the same that William Lilly, the self-professed Christian astrologer did, everything was of a piece. This is documented in our first and only newsletter the Sabian Earth Newsletter, published 3 years this coming week.

On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses on the church door at Wittenburg and things have never been quite the same.

OCTOBER 31, 1517, on the even of All Saint’s Day

Out of love for the truth and the desire to bring it to light, the following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg, under the presidency of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and of Sacred Theology, and Lecturer in Ordinary on the same at that place. Wherefore he requests that those who are unable to be present and debate orally with us, may do so by letter.

In the Name our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

  1. When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, “Repent” ( Matthew 4:17 ), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.
  2. This word cannot be understood as referring to the sacrament of penance, that is, confession and satisfaction, as administered by the clergy.
  3. Yet it does not mean solely inner repentance; such inner repentance is worthless unless it produces various outward mortification of the flesh.
