Charles Manson, the hippie cult guru, who was convicted of the bizarre murders in Hollywood in 1969, is also a Christian and an Antichrist. The bastard son of a promiscuous 16-year old girl, Manson was Satan's candidate for Antichrist. This was revealed in the deaths of the pregnant Sharon Tate and Rosemary LaBianca. Tate's husband produced the film, "Rosemary's Baby," about the birth of the Antichrist. Like the infamous Balaam, who divined apart from scripture, Manson was lured by Satan into his sinister plot to rule the world.

Sharon Tate's Death Chart
Arrest and Trial
Birth Chart Planets
In 1947, Manson's mother tried to put him in a foster home, but since none were available, Charles was placed in Gibault School for Boys in Terre Haute, Indiana. He escaped after 10 months, but his mother refused to take him back. He was able to rent a room with cash from burglarizing a grocery store. This was his first known crime. His crime spree continued until he was caught and sent to an Indianapolis juvenile center. He escaped the next day. He was caught and sent to Boys Town, but he escaped four days later. After committing armed robberies and burglarizing grocery stores, he was again caught and sent at age 13 to Indiana School for Boys. He eventually escaped in 1951 along with two other boys. They stole a car and set out for California, but they were caught in Utah.
The pattern of Manson's lawlessness never changed. Whenever, he was released or escaped, he returned to crime. He stole cars, robbed, and was a pimp. What's worse, he often crossed state lines, which brought stricter penalties for federal offenses. After a spate of good behavior, he was paroled from the Federal Reformatory at Chillicothe, Ohio in May 1954 when he was 19. In January 1955, he married Rosalie Jean Willis. He took his pregnant wife to California in a stolen car. In 1956, he was sentenced to three years imprisonment at Terminal Island, San Pedro, California. While he was in prison, his son, Charles Manson Jr., was born and his wife divorced him.
In 1958, Manson married a prostitute named Leona, who used the name Candy Stevens. In June 1960, he was arrested in Loredo, Texas and sent back to California to face various charges. He was then sent to the US Penitentiary at McNeil Island. His wife, Leona, divorced him in 1963 while he was in prison and alleged they had a son, Charles Luther. When Manson's release date of March 21, 1967 approached, he asked to stay in prison, since he had spent more than half of his 32 years incarcerated. However, after he was released as scheduled on the Spring Equinox, he moved to San Francisco.
Manson soon moved in with Mary Brunner, a 23-year-old assistant librarian at UC Berkeley. Manson brought in other women to live with them. There were soon 18 other women living with them. Manson became a guru in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury and attracted hippie followers, who were mostly young females. Manson and some of his followers began to travel up and down the west coast in an old school bus.
In the spring of 1968, some of the Manson girls met Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys, and soon Manson and the girls had moved in with him. Wilson paid for studio time for Manson to record songs and introduced him to Gregg Jakobson, who paid to record some Manson songs. Wilson also introduced Manson to Terry Melcher, son of Doris Day, and to Rudi Altobelli, who owned the house rented to actress Sharon Tate and her husband, Roman Polanski.
However, in August 1968, Wilson had the Manson group cleared from his house, and Manson moved the group to Spahn's Movie Ranch, an old wild-west movie set. Manson provided the old, nearly blind owner with Lynette (Squeaky) Fromme as housekeeper and companion. In November 1968, Manson acquired permission for the group to live in the secluded Death Valley area on the Myers and Barker ranches.
The Manson cult, later dubbed The Family, grew to about 25 to 30. Charles Manson was a self-proclaimed minister and evangelist, who actively sought converts to his cult. His teachings were based on Scientology, the Bible, and the Beatles. Following an arrest on July 28, 1967, he changed his name from Charles Milles Manson to the alias, Charles Willes Manson. When "Willes" is spelled correctly, "Willis," his new name became an acronym for Charles' will is man's Son, meaning that his will was the same as the Son of Man. Manson implied that he was Jesus Christ reincarnated. He told about dying on the cross 2,000 years ago. And he told of a dream after taking magic mushroom (psilocybin) in which his bed became a cross and he felt the nails in his hands and feet as well as the sword in his side. He also spoke of surrendering himself to death. He needed to die to self to be spiritual.
According to Charles Watson, "Manson used a cult mentality, drugs, music, psychology, Scientology, sorcery and a combination of mystical skills to beguile his followers so that they would be willing to kill, and give their lives for him."5 Manson carefully groomed his followers with his own teaching and music. He mesmerized them with his music while they were on LSD and led them into group sex in the name of love. He even acted out scenes of him dying on the cross. The result was that his disciples lost their identity and became enslaved to the power of their teacher. He was their friend, lover, leader, teacher, coach, and shepherd.
After listening to the Beatles' White Album, Manson interpreted it as prophetic. He said the Beatles were the locusts from the bottomless pit of Revelation 9. He said the bottomless pit was under Death Valley and in it was gold and a river that ran through it along with trees that had 12 kinds of fruit. This was all a perversion of scripture. He further said the Beatles' album was a prophecy of the beginning of the revolution of Blacks against Whites in the US (like Armageddon). He called the revolution, Helter Skelter, after a Beatles' song. His plan was to go underground in Death Valley until the Blacks had seized power. Then he would come out with his cult and the Blacks would make him their ruler.
This was a time of racial riots, Black Panthers, and Martin Luther King demonstrations. And there was an even darker side. In June 1968, film director Roman Polanski released the movie, "Rosemary's Baby," a horror movie about a baby conceived and born for Satan (which could be interpreted as the Antichrist). The previous year, he and Sharon Tate had starred in "The Fearless Vampire Killers." And that year Susan Atkins joined Manson's cult. Susan had dropped out of high school and was living in San Francisco in 1966 where she met Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey, who hired her for a stage production in which she was a vampire.
On the night of August 8, 1969, Manson called Charles Watson aside and told him to go to the former Melcher house where Sharon Tate now lived and kill everyone there in a gruesome scene and leave some witchy signs. He also wanted him to rob the victims, since they needed money to finance Helter Skelter and to bail another member, Mary Brunner, out of jail. Manson sent Patricia Krenwinkel, Susan Atkins, and Linda Kasabian along. They arrived at the Tate residence shortly after midnight. Linda stayed with the car while the others proceeded. As a teenage visitor, Steven Parent, drove up, Watson shot him dead. Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring (hairstylist), Voytek Frykowski, and Abigail Folger (Folger coffee heiress), where stabbed to death. Sharon was eight and a half months pregnant with a baby boy. Before leaving, Atkins wrote "Pig" on the front door in Tate's blood.
The next night Manson set out with six members of his cult to find other victims. It was after midnight on the morning of August 10 before Manson settled on a house at 3301 Waverly Drive, in which supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, a dress shop co-owner, lived. They entered through an unlocked door and tied the man's hands. Manson took his wallet, and left Watson and two of the girls to kill them. He took three others to another apartment and left them to kill the resident. However, Kasabian deliberately knocked on the wrong apartment after Manson left, and the plan failed. The LaBianca's were stabbed to death and "Rise", "Death to Pigs" and "Healter [sic] Skelter" were written on the walls and refrigerator. Leno LaBianca was left with a knife in his throat, a carving fork in his stomach, and the word, "war," carved in his abdomen. The symbolism of the knife and fork came from the Beatles' song, "Piggies," which referred to a knife and a fork to eat the bacon. Manson interpreted the pigs as Whites.
It has further been alleged that on the night of April 9, 1969, Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey placed a curse on the hippie movement. He performed a ritual to bring down the powers of darkness upon the "psychedelic vermin."7 Regardless of the cause, the hippie movement ended after the violence of the Manson cult murders. The free-love (lawlessness) was followed by violence (legalism).
In the Death Chart, all of the planets were on the dark side of the chart except for one. There were three pairs of planets (green circles), which symbolize the Flood. The Noahic Flood was Judgment for the breakdown of Marriage Culture from the involvement of women with demons. That coincides with Hollywood horror movies and with Manson's cult. And seven days later on August 17, Hurricane Camile, the second of three catastrophic Category 5 hurricanes to make landfall in the United States during the 20th century, made landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River in the region of Scorpius. Camile flooded the US from Louisiana to Virginia.
The Descendant Sign was Scorpius, which contained the Red Planet and Redeemer Planet. The Red Planet was the sign of murder, and the Redeemer Planet was the sign of the payoff of a criminal. Manson wanted to rob the victims of thousands of dollars, but none of them had much cash.
The Sun Sign was Cancer, for security. The murders of the Manson cult were a breach in security. In Virgo was a pair of planets, the Almighty God Planet, for a powerful woman, and the Mediator Planet for the Lord as the Mediator of Marriage disputes. The Lord refused to mediate in favor of Sharon Tate and left her for Satan to administer death.
There were two planets in Leo. The Last Adam in Leo symbolized a person standing before the footstool of the conquering king. This happened when President Richard Nixon announced the prosecution of Charles Manson. The Savior Planet, which was also in Leo, symbolized a royal son. Sharon Tate was pregnant with a son.
The other pair of planets was in Gemini, which symbolizes Marriage and corresponds to the region of California, where the murders occurred. The Morning Star in Gemini symbolized the husband as the authority in Marriage. And the Moon in Gemini symbolized a household. Those people in the household with Sharon Tate were murdered while her husband was away.
On the other side of the chart, the God of the Covenants Planet in Aries symbolized the Abrahamic Covenant. This coincided with Egypt's attacks on Israel in which Soviet missiles were used to shoot down Israeli planes. Egypt was opposing the Abrahamic Covenant, which gave Israel the Promised Land. California in the US corresponds to the location of Israel in Asia. And the number, 9, from August 9, symbolizes the Plagues of Egypt, which freed the Exodus generation from Egypt. This, in turn, symbolized the final War of Armageddon, which Manson was trying to start for Satan.
All of those charged with the Tate-LaBianca murders were found guilty of first-degree murder on January 25, 1971. During the trial, Manson cut a cross ("X") on his forehead between his eyes. His cult followers also carved crosses into their foreheads. Manson's explanation of the "X" to others was, "I have X'd myself from your world." However, the crosses were also symbolic (as the prosecutor, Bugliosi, also surmised) of the seal of God (Rev 9:4) of the remnant of 144,000 Jewish believers (Rev 7:4). Manson later changed the cross into a swastika, which is a spinning cross. On March 29, 1971 the jury recommended the death penalty for all four Tate-LaBianca defendants. And on April 19, 1971 the Judge sentenced Manson to death. Later, in October 1971, Charles Watson was convicted on seven counts of first-degree murder. However, the California Supreme Court abolished the death penalty on February 18, 1972, Day 50. This changed the death sentences of Manson and five of his followers to life in prison.
"You go into that cell, and you either find Jesus or you run with the devil." Then he said, "I'm Jesus Christ." He also said he was the Pope. In response to the question, "What do you think of the death penalty?" Manson said, "I think that belongs to God. God gives life and God takes life."1
"I don't care what the Christians say. Jesus Christ is a reality." "The people that have not treated me right, the Holy Ghost will deal with that." ..." You know that Jesus was a reality. He died that I could live. I'm not gonna miss out on that. I'm gitten up on that train too."2
In 1991 explaining how he was not subject to what others thought, he said, "I'm subject to my grandfather and my grandmother, and the Bible, and the Cross. I believe in Christ; I believe in the Bible; and I believe in my Father, who art in Heaven..." His grandfather and grandmother were Christians, whom he obeyed as a child when he was with them. ... In order to control crime, he said, "You gotta have a one-world government; you gotta have a one world court. There can be no place in the world where you can get away with it."8
Faith in Jesus Christ is the condition for Salvation and being a Christian. Over the years Manson consistently and clearly expressed faith in Jesus Christ. However, he also spoke as an Antichrist, for example, in saying he was Jesus Christ and believing in a one-world government.
Manson saw himself as Jesus Christ. He would lead his cult underground under Death Valley, where he imagined the "bottomless pit" to be. His cult would grow to 144,000. Then when the Blacks destroyed the Whites and discovered they needed help to govern, they would call for Charles Manson to rule the world as Jesus Christ. This means that Manson projected himself as the Antichrist, who is none other than the devil. Manson was playing the role of the Antichrist. Satan convinced Manson that he was the Antichrist, and Manson convinced his cult (although Manson told them he was Jesus Christ). Where did Manson go wrong? He listened to the devil instead of the Holy Spirit. He was not filled with the Holy Spirit. He was under the influence of Satan.
Other Manson interpretations of Beatle songs from the White Album included:
The Ascendant Sign was Aries, the sign of a leader. The Mediator Planet, which was in Aries, symbolized a founder. Manson founded his own cult religion.
Midheaven was in Capricornus in conjunction with the Moon to symbolize a notorious cult.
Manson's Sun Sign was Libra, the Scales and symbol of justice. To add further significance to the sign, there was a pair of conjunctions in Libra. This is like a witness of witnesses, where witnesses appear in court. The Sun was in conjunction with the Morning Star, a symbol of decisive justice, like ruling with a rod of iron. Manson received harsh sentences, which kept him in jail. However, he couldn't give up crime when he was free, and he failed to take responsibility for his actions.
The Moon was in Capricornus, the sign of a cult. Manson was the founder and leader of a cult. The Moon was paired with the God of the Covenants Planet in Capricornus, which signifies an Antichrist. Manson said he was Jesus Christ.
The Grand Cross is a sign of the suffering of death. It is always the sign of intensive suffering, like going to the cross. Manson related very strongly to the cross in his life. He believed he was Jesus Christ and had a dream about dying on the cross. He acted out the crucifixion at times for his cult. And he was eventually sentenced to death in the gas chamber, although the sentence was later commuted to life in prison. During his trial he carved a cross on his forehead.
The Grand Cross is unstable like a wheel with four spokes without a rim. As the person with a Grand Cross jumps from one spoke to the next, he changes from one form to another like a person on a frantic search for happiness. Charles Watson described Manson as: "always changing. One moment his movements would be slow, almost trancelike, and then the next he could be exploding with a violent energy that shook off him to set everything around him on fire. He changed his hair and beard constantly, and with each change he could be born anew - Hollywood slicker, jail tough, rock star, guru, child, tramp, angel, devil, son of God. He was a magician; he charmed - in the original sense of the word - and he had an uncanny ability to meet a person and immediately psyche him out, understand his deepest fears and hang-ups, his vulnerabilities."5
The points of the Grand Cross indicate the changes that Manson exhibited.
The Redeemer and Red Planets were in conjunction in Leo. The Redeemer Planet in Leo symbolizes the government redeemer. Manson, as a criminal and earlier as a child in need of a home, was cared for by the state most of his life. The Red Planet in Leo symbolizes a tyrant, who causes suffering to others. This was Manson with his thumb extended, a sign of being dictatorial. Manson's thumbs were also bowed, the sign of being a quick learner as well as being gullible. Manson described himself as winding up in jail because he was stupid. That was associated with his bowed thumbs.
There were two separate conjunctions in Libra, the Scales and symbol of justice. Four planets in a sign is a de facto Stellium, which adds great significance to the power of the sign. Manson's life was defined by justice. He was in reform schools, jail, and prisons most of his life. The conjunction of the Savior, for musician, and Almighty God, for judge, have already been discussed.
The other conjunction was the Morning Star and
Sun. The Morning Star in Libra symbolizes decisive
judgment, like ruling with a rod of iron. This describes
the unusually harsh sentences that Manson usually
received. It also describes Manson as the one who presumed
he would rule the world in place of Jesus Christ with a rod of
iron (Rev 2:27; 12:5). The Sun in Libra, Manson's Birth
Sign, symbolizes justice.
It would be more accurate to call Manson the Antichrist or the devil than any of the other labels applied to him. Manson may have sounded like a criminal or lunatic to others, but he was extremely coherent in terms of Satan's policy. Ever since the Tower of Babel, Satan's goal has been to rule the world with one government and usher in a false Millennium before Christ could return. Manson was born in 1934, where 34 stands for the division of the land, which occurred in the days of Peleg (Gen 10:24) after the Tower of Babel was destroyed and the Earth was divided into nations. Manson was born as Hitler rose to power and tried to be the Antichrist and conquer the world as the Evil King. Manson followed and tried to conquer the world as a civilian.
Manson's followers were caught up in the power of the supernatural. Through Manson's preaching, they developed spiritual awareness. Manson wasn't giving them empty promises. Although he was a false teacher and they were deceived, Satan made sure that they had ample spiritual experiences to feed their desires. Manson's teachings were full of half-truths and deception. He taught about love, but that included loving the world, which is not true love. He talked about the Holy Spirit, but without the Filling of the Holy Spirit, which amounts to spiritual death. He was using Satanic viewpoint to interpret everything. Like Balaam, he was a reversionist going down into evil, and Satan was taking him over.
Yet, Manson was not the source of his operation. He was the pawn of the devil in a much bigger plan. And it was God who created Manson with a Grand Cross in his Birth Chart. God ultimately decides life and death, as Manson understood. The murder of Sharon Tate was the work of Satan with God's permission. The cross awaits those who violate Marriage Culture, and God often allows Satan to administer death. Marriage is a covenant "till death parts." Therefore, violations of Marriage covenants and Right Man - Right Woman relationships are subject to the death penalty. Those who marry without the right to marry are subject to God's punishment (Heb 13:4). Ultimately God decides who lives and who dies and whether to allow Satan to administer the sin unto death.
The death of Sharon Tate with a Skull in her death chart indicates that Satan was allowed to administer death. Murder is the work of Satan, even when criminals are involved. Satan used the Manson cult to murder Sharon Tate and her friends. The pregnant Sharon Tate was a reminder of "Rosemary's Baby." The woman in the LaBianca household that was murdered the next night was named Rosemary. The name was symbolic, where a rose symbolizes a prostitute and Mary was the mother of Jesus. Charles Manson was the son of a woman who became a prostitute, and he implied he was the son of Mary (Jesus Christ). The murders occurred Aug. 9 and 10, 1969, Day 221 and 222, where the numbers mean: 9 - plagues of Egypt (symbolizing the destruction of the world and Armageddon); 10 - Laws of Establishment; 69 - running the course of life; 221 - cursing going down; 222 - strong cursing in the valley of death. The murders were in California, which corresponds to Gemini and the location of Israel in Asia. The Lord will return to Israel at the Second Advent to win the Armageddon War that Manson was trying to start.
After Manson was sentenced to death, the California Supreme Court abolished the death penalty on February 18, 1972, Day 50. This changed the death sentences of Manson and five of his followers to life in prison. The numbers mean: 18 - pillar, for maximum historical impact; 72 - criminal justice system; and 50 - the Church. The murders had begun at 10050 Cielo Drive, which contains the number, 50. Who convinced the Supreme Court to abolish the death penalty? Was it God or Satan? It was Satan, and God permitted it. Manson was sentenced to death on April 19, 1971, and 10 months later his sentence was commuted to life in prison. Even the President of the United States, Richard Nixon, who dared to condemn Manson and failed to execute him, was trapped in a criminal conspiracy and forced to resign in disgrace. Satan has no problem taking care of his own.
The big picture then begins to emerge. Satan was behind Charles Manson as the Antichrist. Manson was born of a promiscuous female (symbolic of the Prostitute of Babylon) in Ohio, the region of Virgo, the virgin. He was Satan's savior of the world in contrast to Jesus Christ, who was born of a true virgin. He would go to the cross and rise to the Throne as ruler of the world. Satan sponsored the hippie movement under the power of the Prostitute of Babylon, and he sponsored the Civil Rights riots of the 60's along with the anti-war demonstrations. Manson and Satan were backing the Blacks, not for their civil rights, but as pawns in the revolution to upset the establishment and seat Satan's ruler. And Satan opposed the US in the Vietnam War. All this was Satan's cross examination of the Church under God's permissive will. The Church was weak. It didn't recognize the devil in Charles Manson.
However, the Church is still weak and cannot recognize the truth in Charles Manson, who has consistently expressed faith in Jesus Christ over the years. Being a Christian, does not mean he has to be perfect. He is obviously also full of Satanic doctrine. But to his credit, he has been spiritually transformed far beyond most of his peers. His arguments are the high-level strategic arguments of the Angelic Conflict between God and the devil. He understands the impact of the believer in the world and the doctrine of the invisible hero, although he doesn't use theological language. However, he does not use divine viewpoint based upon accurate interpretation of scripture to explain the events on the Stage of Life. Consequently, he falls victim to human viewpoint and doctrines of demons. He appears as both a Christian and an Antichrist.
