Barbaro won the Kentucky Derby by 6.5 lengths, the widest margin since Assault in 1946. His last quarter mile was the fastest since Secretariat in 1973. But Barbaro broke his leg in the Preakness in Baltimore on May 20, 2006 only a few hundred yards out of the starting gate. The injured horse captured the hearts of people everywhere, even those who weren't racing fans. Winning the Kentucky Derby on May 6, 2006, and ending his racing career in the Preakness from Post Position 6 on May 20, 2006, the horse became a symbol of the year, 2006, for the weakness of man stripped of power at the footstool of the conqueror. He rose to glory in the Derby, only to fall in agony on the day of the birth of the new government of Iraq.
The formation of the new government in Iraq on May 20, 2006 sounded the death knell for former dictator, Saddam Hussein, who was hanged on December 30, 2006 at age 69, for running the course. Barbaro ran the course, the race track, as a star. He symbolized the number, 6, in 2006. A horse symbolizes war and a male phallic reversionist. So, Barbaro was a symbol of Saddam Hussein and the war that toppled him. Barbaro broke his leg in the 131st Preakness, where 31 is the number for a dictator. And after the death of Saddam, Barbaro's condition soon deteriorated.
There's another side to the story of Barbaro. Even though he was a horse, he was created for a purpose as revealed by his birth chart. He was born the night of April 29, 2003 in Nicholasville, Kentucky at 37 N., for a warrior, and 84 W., for the weakness of the Church. It was Day 119, for the witness (11) of the federal judiciary (19), which corresponds to the new government of Iraq. At the time of his birth, all the planets were on one side of the chart except for the Last Adam (Pluto), which was in the sign of Scorpius, the scorpion and symbol of conflict with the deadly enemy. This is called a Bucket. It means that the focus is toward the lone planet opposite all the others, where the bail of a bucket would be. The focus was the Last Adam, the planet that represents the humanity of Jesus Christ in Hypostatic Union, who was created a man in order to die for the sins of the world. God cannot die; so He had to become a man to die. Six is the number for man, who was created on the sixth day.
Also, in Barbaro's chart is a Plow, which is formed from the Red Planet (Mars) in opposition to the Almighty God planet (Jupiter) connected at a right angle to the Sun. This configuration is like a plow or a spear, which symbolizes an attempt to plow a person under or stab him with a spear. In this case the conflict from the Red Planet and the Almighty God planet in opposition are resolved by the suffering aimed at the Sun. This is precisely the scenario of the Cross. Jesus Christ was Judged on the Cross for the sins of the world as symbolized by the Red Planet, which represents the blood of Christ. After He finished bearing the sins of the world, Jesus Christ died physically. Then a Roman soldier pierced his side with a spear and out came blood clots and serum because He was already dead. The great red spot on the Almighty God planet (Jupiter) symbolizes the scar where the Roman spear pierced His side. However, while He was dying on the Cross, the Sun was darkened due to an eclipse. The darkness represented the spiritual darkness associated with the spiritual death of Jesus Christ as He died as a substitute for all mankind. Thus, the Sun at a right angle to the other two planets on Barbaro's chart symbolizes the eclipse that coincided with the Judgment of the Cross. Barbaro's jockey Edgar Prado was wearing a jersey with a cross in the Preakness.
A Plow, or spear, in anyone's birth chart is a sign of suffering. The plow facing the Sun in Barbaro's chart means the glory has departed, which corresponds to the Hebrew, Ichabod (1 Sa 4:21). Of course, Barbaro had to have glory before he could lose it. Like Ichabod, Barbaro was born to lose his glory so that he could symbolize the Judgment of Jesus Christ on the Cross and the judgment of Saddam Hussein in 2006. And there is another meaning: "God makes was against the arrogant, but He gives grace to the humble" (James 4:6).
In Barbaro's chart, the Red Planet is in the sign of Capricornus, the goat. On the Day of Atonement, which foreshadowed the Cross, a bull, a goat, and two rams were sacrificed. The Sun is in Aires, the ram, as the birth sign of Barbaro. On the Day of Atonement, the blood of a goat was sprinkled once on the Mercy Seat and 7 times in front of it to represent unlimited atonement. This corresponds to the meaning of the year, 2007. On the Day of Atonement, the rams were offered as burnt offerings for the priests and the congregation of Israel.
Barbaro's birth chart reveals the purpose of God in his creation. It shows that God has a plan even for animals. He was born on April 29, 2003, and he died on January 29, 2007, where 29 is for victory over Edom. The Edomites were the descendants of Esau, who was one of the first to terrorize the Jews. In his birth chart was the story of the focus of human history, the birth and death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross as a substitute for all mankind. The focus of a Bucket on the birth chart is the Last Adam. A Plow stretches from the Red Planet in Capricornus to the Almighty God planet in Cancer. Capricornus, the goat, represents the sin offering on the Day of Atonement and symbolizes the coming Christ and His unlimited atonement for sin. Cancer symbolizes eternal security (Jn 10:28). The Plow points to the Sun in Aries, the ram, and symbolizes the eclipse during the Crucifixion. The Light of the world was darkened when Christ was Judged for the sins of the world, as represented by the Red Planet. But the Almighty God planet in opposition to the Red Planet symbolizes the victory of the Cross when Christ had finished bearing the sins of the world to provide Salvation for all mankind. Unlimited atonement is one of the meanings of the year, 2007.
The gift of Salvation is free. It is received through an act of
faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior, who made it possible. "Believe
on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved" (Acts 16:31).
