Discussion about
Billy Graham, born 7 November 1918 at 3:30 PM in Charlotte NC
 
This discussion is imported from the  comment board on the  previous astrodatabank.com website.

In these times when some tout their religious fervor ever more stridently, Billy Graham serves as a reminder that a religious person can be inclusive rather than exclusive. Following the recent revival meeting in New York, David Segal wrote in a "Washington Post" article on June 26, 2005: "His message is most striking for what it is missing. There are no threats of damnation, no politics, no command to write your senator. True to the themes he has preached since rising to national prominence in the '40s, Graham remains the avuncular and unthreatening face of evangelical Christianity, one committed to keeping church at arm's length from the state. Though he is famous for befriending every president since Eisenhower, Graham has steadfastly refused to jumble matters of faith with an earthly agenda. He would like you to come to Jesus because he believes it will comfort you in the present and ensure you a seasonable setting in the hereafter, but he isn't going to denounce those who are indifferent to the Gospels."  
Let's study Graham's chart for clues to his vocation:
  • It's no surprise that the ruler of his Aries ascendant is in Sagittarius in the 9th house, but where in the chart do you see the evangelist, the person who is called to spread the word of his faith? Where is the ability to use so many media channels to broadcast his message?
  • Since his friendship with Richard Nixon caused some to question Graham's own integrity, Graham refuses to mix religion with politics. He makes a clear distinction between the person in high office from the politics of the office and has been advisor to Democrats and Republicans alike. One of his biographers, William Martin, describes him thus: "He's not a dogmatic man. He is by nature an includer. He has always reached out and tried to understand other people." Where do you see the "includer" in Graham's chart?
  • Graham's chart patterns are interesting--no planets in earth signs, a distinct Western orientation and five personal planets clustered in houses 8 and 9. To add to the interpretation, notice that Uranus is the only planet on the Eastern hemisphere of his chart <b><u>and</b></u> the only planet in air. What do these patterns tell us about this man?

Some of Reverend Graham's early history I once read in Evergreen magazine occurred in his adolescence around the time tr Neptune was squared his Mercury: He was out in the fields working with his brother and they both stared in awe as tummulous clouds formed the letters PG in the sky. His brother assumed it meant plow good and stayed on the farm. Billy assumed it meant preach God.

1. North Node Direct ( one of the great testimonies of success) in the 9th trine Neptune in the 5th (TV Ministry).  
 2. Transneptunians Hades and Posiedon are in opposition from Pisces to Virgo, the ultimate spiritual revivalist. Both of these square Pallas Athena and Mars. Mars is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER in the 9th.  
 3. Cupido, the man who takes an oath to live up to the highest standards, is conjunct Neptune.  
 4. Admetos, awesome staying power, is conjunct the Ascendant and the East Point. Also opposition the Vertex.  
 5. Juno conjunct Neptune in the 5th, his wife and spiritual partner.

1. The evangelist: Uranus in aspect to Saturn same as John Paul II and Pope Benedict. Combining wishes and hopes with structured, organized thought. Here in t-square with Mercury at apex, brings desire to communicate.
 TV broadcast: Moon in Sagittarius conjunct MC - Public display of feelings for philosophy, religion. Conjunct Mars adds extra energy and zeal. Mars square to Aries Ascendant certainly adds pep. Also, Ruler of MC, Saturn is in the 5th house of entertainment trining the MC, brings success due to ambition and management skills in these areas. Neptune is also in 5th adding allure and a flair for entertainment industry.
2. Includer: the answer is in the 3d question: Uranus, planet of humanity, emphasized as a singleton in the chart as well as in its own sign and house. Moon in Sagittarius also adds to the broadened humanitarian vision. And Sun conjunct Venus trine Jupiter shows a personable, all around nice guy who wants everyone to feel at ease. I would guess that Mars conjunct Moon in Sagittarius; Sun in Scorpio; Aries rising does have its dogmatic, "pushy" side but can find balance from Saturn's trine to Mars/Moon, Sun c. Venus, and Pluto on the IC. He's sort of Dogmatic about not being Dogmatic.

I have no answers to your standard questions. Although I consider myself a novice astrologer I would like to comment on what STOOD OUT and demanded my attention from Billy Graham's chart. The Chiron Quincunx Saturn aspect. Although Billy is a "Scorpio" he could never do Scorpio's "thing" = get even ~ ! Chiron on his ascendant in house 12 holds many wounds and healings. Wounds he holds very secret and forgives openly as is Pisce's way, especially in it's home, the 12th house. Saturn in Generous Leo, also in his home house 5, keeps him LOYAL to his "cause" and in a constant state RESPONSIBILITY. Billy does his "adjusting" well, and why should he be anything but successful with all this help. This Scorpio surely does believe that "Vengeance" belongs to God.

<b>1.) </b> <b> Where in the chart do you see the evangelist, the person who is called to spread the word of his faith? Where is the ability to use so many media channels to broadcast his message?</b>
Along with the aforementioned Aries Ascendant ruler Mars in the 9th house you have a Scorpio Sun conjunct Venus in the 8th house that is disposited by Mars in Sag in the ninth. The Sun and Venus trine Jupiter in the 4th an Jupiter is in mutual reception with the Moon which is also conjunct Mars.
The Scorpio Sun/Venus in the 8th shows his passion and will towards transformation and that this transformative would would involve transforming values (Venus). The trine to Jupiter in the 4th house shows this urge would be based on religion/philosophy (Jupiter) that is deeply rooted in ones early life and psyche (4th house)
The Moon (ruler of the 4th) conjunct Mars is in mutual reception with Jupiter which gives him the ability to project this deeply personal philosophy and conviction into a broader philosophy (9th house) that would connect with the masses (Moon most elevated planet conjoined MC). Saturn (ruler of the MC) in Leo in the 5th is in an exact trine with Mars/Moon which gives him his moral authority and further strengthens his role as spiritual warrior (Aries ASC ruler Mars in the ninth) It is no coincidence that his missionary broadcasts were called <b>Crusades.</b>
The Sag/9th house emphasis (Moon/Mars North Node) all disposited by Jupiter show us the publisher/broadcaster. Saturn/Neptune in Leo in the fifth show how he was able to incorporate rules (Saturn) and idealism (Neptune) into show business (Leo 5th house). The fixed Venus/Neptune square further emphasize the combination of Glamour and Idealism (Neptune) with Values, Money and artistic expression thru his voice (Venus).
Saturn in the fifth opposite Uranus in the 11th show how he has been able to take his personal kind of creative structures (Saturn in 5th) and project them into the collective (11th house) through technology and shared ideals (Uranus in 11th). This also shows the Evangelist as well as how he would Evangelize.
<b>2.) </b> <b> Where do you see the "includer" in Graham's chart? </b>
Uranus in the eleventh house as part of the T-Square that includes the Saturn/Uranus opposition and Mercury as focal planet show "the includer" who has a deep urge to reconcile his authority (Saturn ruler of MC) with groups (Uranus in 11th) through communicating (Mercury) and a deep merging with others (Mercury in Scorpio in the 8th house resolving the Saturn/Uranus opposition)
<b>3.) </b> <b>. What do these patterns tell us about this man?</b>
The absence of Earth shows a person not connected or concerned with the material world. The western orientation show his pull towards others and his willingness to surrender himself to the salvation of others. The 8/9th house emphasis further show how this surrender would focus on religion/philosophy (9th house) and the death/transformation of his own personal will (Sun/Venus in Scorpio in the 8th)
The emphasis on Fire and Water show his passion and emotion (Fire) along with his deep feeling and mystical nature (Water). Uranus as singleton in Hemisphere and Air show that his only way to communicate his idealism and ideas (Air) can dominate the rest of this chart. That Uranus is in its own sign of Aquarius further strengthens this need and adds to its probable compulsiveness because it is the only way to express this to himself as well.

This is a preacher's chart, it combines the personal drive of the t-square with the luck favored by the lack of earth, causing the hidden grand trine, bring monetary and materialistic success to his profession..To his credit, he has not taken the money for use on himself but placed it into his vocation and his calling...
Grahm is tall as he should be with aries rising, which also gives him his hawk like features and imposing stature..The ascendant is disposited by mars in Sagittarius, another fire sign adding height..The ruler of the chart is is conjunct the moon and the north node in the ninth house as well as the midheaven, showing where he spends most of the time...religion, philisophical matters..and a great deal of travel, that the ninth house is also occupied by sagitarius shows why there is such a strong emphasis on travel and religion in his life...
The chart ruler conjunct the midheaven and the moon from the ninth house brings him before the public...as both the chart ruler and the moon are disposed by jupiter in cancer where it is exalted shows his success, not to mention the 15 degree of cancer where his jupiter is, is the exact exalted degree of jupiter..the north node being there, albeit in detriment, is direct, foretelling fame..Chart ruler by placement is where one spends the most time, ninth house, makes sense for a preacher...
While Mars rules the chart, the most important planet is mercury as it lies on the apex of a fixed t-square in Scorpio, of which it is part of a stellium in, in the 8th house, but cut off from the Sun and Venus conjunction.. Mercury in Scorpio, shows a penetrative and deep thinker, persusaive and firing, but he is conservative, as the fixed signs tend to be..The opposition is the square off because in uranus in its rulership in aquarius and saturn in leo in its detriment..Mercury is forced to choose as the apex..The 8th house deals with transformation, between saturn in leo in the 5th house of pleasure and uranus in aquarius in the house of responsibility and the masses, clearly mercury prefers the planet in rulership and Grahm deals with the t-square by balancing conservative though with mass appeal..
Ruler of the T-square also rules the third house of communication and sixth house of health, notice grahm suffers from parkinsons (Mercury) a dengerative disease (scorpio) afflicted by sudden shakes (uranus and aquarius) and stiffness (saturn) in the parts of the body controlled by the spinal cord (leo)..
Notice the wife has a degenerative spinal condition..the ruler of seventh (marriage partner) venus is combust the sun at 10 degrees scorpio and is suffering a a square from neptune (vanishing, reducing) leo (spinal cord)..
Bill Grahm lives a fortunate religious and privileged life for a simple reason..The final dispositor of the entire chart, except uranus in rulership in aquarius is jupiter in cancer, exalted at 15 and acidentally dignified at the nadir..Jupiter is religion, cancer and the nadir are roots, the home and security, mother..That is what Grahm does well, he is warm, ingratiating, protective, inclusive, not dogmatic or authoritative..
I like final dispositors when looking at charts, they show the condition of the chart, in this case, Jupiter is Cancer at the exact exlatation degree, with the moon at Sagitarrius with the ruling planet and north node and midheaven, tells the tale
 Note the U.S, chart also has the Sun at about 15 Degrees Cancer, hence, the reason Grahm molds so well to the public..He is probably the most well known, publicly revered preacher of our time..This chart is a slam dunk of the the subject is describes

Picking up on our discussion of the essential dignities from the Geldof thread:
I would note that the strongest planets by dignity are Jupiter +9 and the Moon at +5. The weakest planet by dignity is Mercury at -5p. This would indicate that the already powerful Moon/Jupiter (by mutual reception) and by aspect (Moon conjunct ASC ruler Mars and Midheaven and Moon trine Saturn - Jupiter Trine Sun/Venus) takes on an even larger role as a defining energy in this chart.

I quite agree, that according to essential dignity, Jupiter, certainly carries the most doignity being in its sign of exalt..But is not saturn in detriment, without mutual reception, in terms of Mars, in the face of mars, in Leo, weaker, than Mercury? Mercury while weak in Scorpio, is in terms of Saturn, but the face of Venus, is marginally stronger, although the houses change the score, those are accidental and not essential dignity and my question is what happens when the apx of a t-square, such as mercury, is so weak?

<b>M wrote: </b> "my question is what happens when the apex of a t-square, such as mercury, is so weak?"
Hey M, I will take a shot at this. First off statements like "weak" or "strong" or "honor" or "detriment" should not be taken literally as they are mere weights and values that help us measure the relative effects of planets in a chart. The main function of a focal planet in a T-Square is to reconcile the tension between the planets in opposition. When the focal planet is successful it becomes a point where the opposition can find expression. When the focal planet is not integrated it can become a point of great frustration.
My observation in this case would be that Mercury is just strong enough to lessen the oppositional tension yet not dominate the chart. Saturn opposite Uranus is frequently an indicator of the reformer or activist. Perhaps it is an important feature for an evangelist to have. Also remember (as Paula Gassmann alluded) the dignities are another lens to use in order to make a better overall assessment of a chart; not the defining element of synthesis.
Another thing to consider is that a certainly dogmatic and harsh Saturn/Uranus = Mercury T-Square is easier to sell beneath the exterior of a very principled yet nurturing Moon/Jupiter dominated personality; Especially for a Scorpio Sun Aries ASC (which is not the most gentle Sun/Ascendant combination) As is the always the case; his Mercury may just be perfectly afflicted for the role he came into this life to play.

The connections of Jupiter and Neptune to that of religion are widely observed, but some astrologers note also a connection between Pluto and religiosity. This is particularly cogent when transformation (born again, born anew) and unwelcome meddling are prominent themes. It is, of course, easy to see the bent toward religion in this chart, but what factors specify the evangelical, fundamentalist sects like Southern Baptist? My father was a Southern Baptist minister, so the evangelical concepts are well known to me and they are highly relevant as an issue distinct from general faith.
I personally believe that Billy Graham was an honorable, sincere, and kind man of good will, but one must have a dogmatic tendency to embrace a fundamentalist, evangelical religion. One must believe in the theological concept of "inerrancy", that the Bible is the literal Word of God to be obeyed without question or dispute. The Southern Baptists made a very significant leap further into dogmatism in the early 1990's by forcing out all members who refused to sign an extremely dogmatic pact. This caused Jimmy Carter to first plea for moderation and then to leave the sect of his youth. One must assume that Graham signed the highly un-inclusive pact.
Unless you were born a Southern Baptist in the South, you probably do not understand the evangelicals much. They call astrology "occult" and lump it with tarot, tea leaves, and crystal balls, and they condemn the lot as "evil" and "of the Devil". It is explained as a concoction brewed by Satan to lure unsuspecting souls away from Jesus and salvation. Practitioners of astrology are in league with Satan, according to the prevailing evangelical thought, including the Southern Baptists. Evangelicals spend much of their time and their fervent energy talking about Satan, his scary tactics, and his scary characteristics. They are essentially phobic preachers of impending doom, a doom that is coming "soon".
A Moon/Pluto opposition coincides with the MC/IC axis. This can represent fanaticism or an earnest calling. It is often psychological or emotionally intense. It marks the native as a highly tranformative individual living a highly transfromative life. With Jupiter nearby and also trine the Sun, we begin to see the religious themes. Sun is also square Neptune. Despite his honorable reputation, this man was susceptible to misguided tangents. Sun/Venus square Neptune is a highly charasmatic figure. Jupiter/Pluto near the MC/IC axis, Sun in trine to Jupiter and also square Neptune, Moon in Sag in Ninth with a crowded Ninth House all contribute to a religious focus. It is the Moon/Pluto connection that brings a tendency to fanaticism and a more public expression.
The best thing that can be said about Moon conjunct Mars is the tendency to sincerity, but what good is sincerity if it is full of animosity and rage? Mars in Sag is often lovable, but there is a well known tendency to dogmatism. The trine of this to Saturn brings great restraint, and possibly tact. I believe it is tact that makes Graham appear "inclusive" and moderate. Behind closed doors, I believe he was highly political in his thinking and a bully, though I believe he was chastened by the virulence of many modern evangelicals. Look through Graham's long history, and you will see that he frequently preached of hellfire, and he preached that relatively few would be saved from eternal damnation. After all, that is a central theological tenet of his professed denomination as distinct from other non-evangelical Christian sects. If he preached otherwise, he would, by written constitution, be drummed out of the church. Anyone who thinks this man represented inclusiveness devoid of damnation does not understand the word "evangelical".

In Billy Graham's Vedic / sidereal chart, the ascendant lord is Jupiter, whose Sanskrit name - Guru - means 'spiritual teacher'. Jupiter is strong as he is retrograde (bright) and sits in the 4th house in the lunar mansion (nakshatra) of Ardra (10-00 - 23-20 Gemini), whose deity is Rudra, the storm-god. The lunar mansion rising is Uttara Bhadrapada (3-20 - 16-40 Pisces), an asterism which is naturally inclined to matters concerning spiritual energy (kundalini) or, in more Christian terms, the 'Holy Spirit'.
Jupiter is a natural orator, and Mars is the lord of the 2nd house of speech, placed in the 10th house of career with the Moon (the public), in mutual aspect (drishti) with this strong, benefic Jupiter. Having a career as a public speaker on spiritual topics is a natural consequence of these combinations.  
His tremendous success is also indicated by this Moon and Mars in the 10th house in mutual aspect with Jupiter in the 4th. Together, they rule houses 1, 2, 5, 9, and 10, forming 4 adhipati-dharma-karma or royal yogas (ability, fame, and success). These conbinations are very potent as the planets are mutually friendly to each other, Jupiter is strong by being retrograde, and Mars has directional strength (dig bala) in the 10th house,
Monn and Mars sit in the nakshatra of Mula (00 - 13-20 Sagttarius), an asterism noted for deep knowledge or understanding of a subject. The 10th house is strengthened even more by the fact that Jupiter throws his 7th aspect (drishti) on his own house. Jupiter and Moon also form the benefic Gaja-Kesari yoga, a combination associzated with networking and public popularity.
Writing is a 3rd house matter, and the 3rd house is aspected by Mercury, planet of communication, from the auspicious 9th house of spiritual teaching. Also, the 3rd house is tenanted by the spiritually-inclined Ketu and 3rd lord Venus is strong in her own sign of Libra. She sits in the nakshatra of Swati (6-40 - 20-00 Libra), another spiritually-inclined asterism whose deity is Saraswati, goddess of learning. This position is strengthened even further as Venus is influenced by the 5th aspect of Jupiter, lord of the chart. Thus, the 3rd house is naturally configured for success in writing on spiritual topics.  
1st lord Jupiter (BG) is the only one of the 7 planets (grahas) who, in the Vedic scheme of planetary relatinships, is the enemy of no other planet, and is the planet who is, by nature, the most inclusive of others people.

To M: When a planet has little dignity, it can be insightful to look at what help it has available to complete its function. In the case of the perigrine Mecury in late Scorpio, you'd look to Mars, which is disposited by Jupiter, which is disposited by the Moon. If you run this process through the other perigrine planets in Graham's chart (Sun, Moon, Mars) and those that are in detriment (Venus and Saturn) all roads lead to Jupiter, Moon, which, as Jotown pointed out, are in mutual reception, meaning that they are working together in this chart, along with the Mars ruler.
Jupiter has the highest dignity, being exalted at the best degree (15 Cancer). Graham's Jupiter at 15 + Cancer placement leads to the following Sabian Symbol: "A man studying a mandala in front of him, with the help of a very ancient book." (You gotta love it!) Jupiter is in triplicity of the Sun, (ruled by Mars) and trine to the Sun in the 8th house. Graham is comfortable with the theme of salvation after death. Jupiter is in the term of Mercury, which gives him added strength with the media for communicating his message, and is in the face of Mercury, through which he gains respect through media coverage (a nice activation of the square between Mercury and Saturn).  
Jupiter is working in tandem with the perigrine Moon. The Moon is in the triplicity of the Sun, like Jupiter is. It is in the term of Mars and is conjoined to it in the 9th. Here we see firey evangelism, crusades, a warrior with a pointed cause from which he does not veer. Anon's comments about evangelism, and Graham as an evangelist, are well-taken in this regard. The Moon is also in the face of Saturn and trine to Saturn in Leo, echoing the discipline, dedication, and commitment to his full-blown expression. While his expression has become entertainment (revival meetings with huge attendance), over time, it is less about his ego and more about his mission.
Pluto, as the higher octave of Mars, can be obsessive action about anything. It's transit through Sagittarius over the last number of years has certainly indicated an obsession with religion.

Hi Paula - Regarding the Sabian symbol for 15 Cancer: wouldn't the Sabian symbol for his Jupiter be 16 (even though 15 seems appropriate)? It was my understanding that if there are any minutes, then the next number up should be used.

It is my understanding that planets can only be in mutual reception, if they are in each others dignity or exaltation or a combination of both which causes mixed reception AND are in aspect to each other, in this case Jupiter at 15 cancer and Moon at 28 Sagitarrius are not even in Quincux to each other, I agree that Jupiter in Cancer is the Final Dispositor of all the planets save Uranus, however, how can mutual reception exist if the planets are unaspected?

Planets in mutual reception do not need to be in any aspect to each other. All that is required is that they disposit each other which is the case with Billy Graham's Cancer/Jupiter and Sag/Moon. Also; there is no final dispositor in this chart. You cannot have a final dispositor when you have mutual reception.

The Sabian symbol that Paula wrote is the symbol for 16 degree's of Cancer. The Sabian symbol's go from number 1 to number 30 and the zodiac degree's go from 0 to 29, so you always take the symbol one number after the degree that are looking at.

What I find impressive about the equal house chart as it shows up on this page is the early degrees of the houses. Fascinating that the first house is almost entirely Mars ruled Aries at full bore with a Scorpio Sun in the 8th. It looks like a "what you see is what you get" person's chart... no hidden agendas... which is pretty much how he lived his life... foibles and all... and what set(s) him apart from many others in the televangelists movement he came to inspire. Except for his M/C the planets in the houses are not colored by interceptions. Very outstanding.

To Penelope: Yes, you would read one degree up in the Sabian Symbols: 15 Cancer 48 would be read as 16 degrees. We have noted in this forum that there are a number of different versions of the degree symbols. The one I used was from a 1999 article by Linda Hill, using 1931 M. Jones version. The 1953 M. Jones version (Sabian Symbols in Astrology, perhaps more common) is slightly different: A man before a square with a manuscript scroll before him. The essence is the same, however.  
To M: Mutual Reception, according to Nicholas Devore's Encyclopedia of Astrology, is when two planets are in each other's sign or exaltation, or when they disposit each other.
