Birth - Spiritual Meanings

Spiritual Meanings

  • Astrology is based upon the belief that an individual's life is influenced by the geocentric positions of the sun, moon, and planets in the sky or below the horizon at the moment of birth; a natal chart is calculated using the exact time, date, and place of birth to try to interpret these cyclical influences on a person's life.
  • Born again, a term used primarily in Protestant Christianity, is associated with salvation, conversion, and spiritual rebirth.
  • Rebirth is a belief that a person is born again after their death based on the karma of their previous births.
  • Virgin birth of Jesus is the Christian doctrine that asserts that Jesus Christ was born to a virgin, and thus that his conception was carried out without an earthly father.

Famous quotes containing the words meanings and/or spiritual:

    You can’t write about people out of textbooks, and you can’t use jargon. You have to speak clearly and simply and purely in a language that a six-year-old child can understand; and yet have the meanings and the overtones of language, and the implications, that appeal to the highest intelligence.
    Katherine Anne Porter (1890–1980)

    There is an inner world; and a spiritual faculty of discerning it with absolute clearness, nay, with the most minute and brilliant distinctness. But it is part of our earthly lot that it is the outer world, in which we are encased, which is the lever that brings that spiritual faculty into play.
    —E.T.A.W. (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Wilhelm)
