Did Jesus Make a Mistake?

When Jesus reached Jerusalem he attacked the Pharisees and Sadducees (the religious authorities of the time) and threatened to replace them.

Was this a mistake?

Jesus philosophy was to love your enemies and bless those who curse you and pray for those who abuse you.  Not to attack and threaten them.

When Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane he prayed for the cup to pass from him. He did not pray for the Pharisees and Sadducees as he had preached.

It was not until he was on the cross that he prayed for his enemies.

Astrologically Jesus' progressed Sun was in Aries and this stimulated his progressed Mars conjunct Pluto (as yet undiscovered) in Virgo directly opposite his stellium in Pisces (including his natal Sun).

The mars opposition can be read as biting off more than you can chew, provoking authority (Saturn) and inviting a test of strength (Jupiter).  It can cause a sudden turn around (Uranus).

Pluto opposition is power struggles, also suicide and self-destruction.

Mars and Pluto together in opposition represent violence.

This certainly happened to Jesus.

So should Jesus have behaved differently?

Should he have recognized that the Pharisees and Sadducees (and the Romans) were motivated by fear - fear of God and fear of revolt?

By being too aggressive Jesus inadvertently triggered their greatest fears.

Had he talked about fear and had compassion for those who were captives of that fear the result might have been different.

Jesus said not to oppose evil but to pray for those who you perceive as evil.  You will find that they are motivated by fear and that you can have compassion for them.

We can pray for them to be liberated from their fear.
