The Mysticism of Mary: The Ancient Feminine Force of the Catholic Faith, Part III

The images both Christian and non-Christian alike have commonly associated most with the Mother of Christ throughout the 20th and into the 21st century are of a purely mystical nature, since Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal are part of a long list of locations where a specific event has occurred that can best be described in layman’s terms as “supernatural”. Each location is said to have had a “Marian Apparition” take place there.

Marian Apparition – a supernatural event in which the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared to one or more persons regardless of their religious faith.

According to Wikipedia, each apparition “is often named after the town where it is reported”, such as Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Fatima, , etc. and is said to “recur at the same site over an extended period of time” with either one or a small handful of people witnessing the apparition at the time of its original occurrence.

The Mysticism of Mary: The Ancient Feminine Force of the Catholic Faith, Part I

Throughout the Catholic Church’s history Mary has been a point of contention where some have said the woman who bore the mortal manifestation of Christ is inconsequential and still others have equivocated devotion towards the Blessed Mother to the worshipping of a pagan goddess.

The Blessed Mother may have begun life as a mortal being but her role in the Catholic Faith is to embody and sustain that mystical force known as the ancient feminine. This in turn elevates Mary’s status well beyond being merely a mortal woman who gave birth to the Messiah. As the force of the ancient feminine Mary serves as Catholicism’s fiercest defender of faith by being its most powerful form of protection against the forces of darkness and evil and Our Lady sustains the importance Catholicism still holds for humanity as the 21st century unfolds by her institution of the power of prayer.

Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera – A Marriage of Mismatched Muses

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera may have found it close to impossible to harness their individual forces of creative self expression within their marriage, however their influence over each other has allowed for these mismatched Muses to inspire the world at large with their artistic legacies that are like no other and expansively grow more and more with the passage of Time.

The Mother of Us All: The Nurturing Nature of Roy Horn

Despite Roy Horn of the famed Las Vegas duo “Siegfried & Roy” being a Libra and being mauled by one of his own tigers on his actual birthday on October 3rd, 2003, my article which focuses on Roy’s astounding ability to communicate with his big cats is quite apropos for the Zodiacal time period allotted to the sign of the maternal nurturer, Cancer. The nurturing force of motherly intuition is inherently powerful for Horn, given he was born with a stellium of 4 heavenly bodies in Cancer’s 4th House and his natal Saturn and North Node were placed in the sign of the Crab as well. The man is unique unto himself since he is a nurturer like no other with his big felines being his literal children:

Malala Yousafzai: Modern Day Saint & Purveyor of Peace, Part III

As observed in Part II, a vast majority of the world’s best known winners of the Nobel Peace Prize have been born with exceptionally heavy concentrations of planets placed within the Cardinal signs of either Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn.

The co-recipients of 2014’s Nobel Peace Prize are no exception to this astrological rule.

Like the vast majority of those revered individuals who have won before them, the winners of 2014’s Nobel Peace Prize bear the same cosmic markings of the globally influencing “Peace Maker” – Malala Yousafzai being born with the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in the Justice loving sign of Libra, and with Kailash Satyarthi entering this plane of existence when the Sun was in Capricorn and the Moon in the Freedom fighting sign of Aries.

But that’s not Nobel all, folks!

Even more cosmically confounding, not only does Malala possess the same uncommon attributes as her fellow Peace Prize Winners, her astrological foundation exceeds them.

Malala Yousafzai was born a “Triple” Cardinal personality.

Malala Yousafzai: Modern Day Saint & Purveyor of Peace, Part II

The Dalai Lama, Woodrow Wilson, Lech Walesa, Al Gore Jr., John Hume, David Trimble, Kofi Annan, Elie Wiesel, Albert Schweitzer, Jimmy Carter, Kailash Satyarthi, and Malala Yousafzai.

Alongside the fact the personalities of distinction listed above each have been individually bestowed the honor of winning the Nobel Peace Prize, as a whole they’re also threaded together with a rare astrological trait.

Astrologically, the aforementioned Nobel Laureates were all born with a double emphasis in the Cardinal signs.

The previous list of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates is exceptional for their extra emphasis of Cardinal signs but fascinatingly it must be noted that the vast majority of History’s most well-known Peace Prize Winners were born when the Sun was placed in a Cardinal sign, such as Nelson Mandela (Cancer), Liu Xiaobo (Capricorn), Jose Ramos-Horta (Capricorn) along with the Reverends Martin Luther King, Jr. (Capricorn) and Desmond Tutu (Libra).

June 28th, 1914: The Day the World Changed, World War I & Our Unfolding Future – Part III

There’s no need to translate, formulaicly or otherwise, that a violent death would be the most famous and highly notorious aspect associated with the date of June 28th, 1914. Plus, as already mentioned throughout this series, the deaths of a husband and wife which occurred on that June day one century ago would have repercussions on a most massive scale, resulting in a global conflict that would change the world and eventually take the lives of over 37 million souls forever from this planet, nearly 5 million of them being American military.

As our future continues to unfold deeper into the 21st century, may today’s society always keep the date of June 28th, 1914 fresh within its collective memory for us to learn from and not perpetuate the wrongs of humanity’s past.

June 28th, 1914: The Day the World Changed,World War I & Our Unfolding Future – Part II

“Europe today is a powder keg and the leaders are like men smoking in an arsenal … A single spark will set off an explosion that will consume us all … I cannot tell you when that explosion will occur, but I can tell you where … Some damned foolish thing in the Balkans will set it off.”
– Otto von Bismarck, after being asked by the 1878 Congress of Berlin what he thought would start the next major war in Europe.

“I know I shall soon be murdered.” – supposedly said by the Archduke Franz Ferdinand to a group of friends a few weeks prior to his assassination.

June 28th, 1914: The Day the World Changed, World War I & Our Unfolding Future – Part I

The First World War permanently changed the world and its historical source can be traced back to one particular day in the early 20th century. A date in human history which still affects us – right to this very present moment in modern real time.

A new world emerged following World War I that was no longer naively nationalistic, since the conflict began with all parties on both sides joyfully marching off to fight, and ended with 37 million people losing their lives, never to be seen again.

Brad Kronen’s Welcome to the Zodiac Series: Cancer

Cancer is the one sign I have consistently observed where a significant portion of those born beneath it refrain from tapping into the full potential of their sign’s natural strengths. Crabs of both genders should know one of the best ways for a human to ensure their death in Mother Nature’s Queendom is by simply crossing paths 1 inch the wrong way with the young of any wild animal comparable in size to us.

The Mother of said wild animal whose path you just crossed 1 inch too far will make sure you see the error of your ways…..by killing you 10 times before ‘ya hit the ground.

Unprecedented Hate: Orlando’s Massacre and its Karmic Ties to Mass Shootings of the Recent Past, Part III

With all things karmicly considered, one astrological feature prominently stands out in Orlando’s chart by being a key factor in both of the massacre’s Fingers of God along with serving as the connecting bridge which activated the chart’s karmic energies with those of the killer – the planet of sexual drive but more importantly of Guns and Firearms, Mars.

A plague has already begun not just in the United States but globally where militaristic weapons of war are being purchased by individuals who in turn proceed to use those same weapons to destroy the lives of as many innocent victims as they can before either doing themselves in or being forcibly removed from this world by surrounding authorities. By not demanding that our government enact the strictest of requirements which limit access to purchasing these Martian ruled tools of death, we are inviting blood baths like Orlando to occur again, but on a far bigger and more devastating scale.

In this day and age, when we as a technologically savvy, civilized society should be tolerant of every race, creed, color and variation of sexual orientation, Omar Mateen unto himself regretfully represents how much more work humanity still needs to desperately get done.

Unprecedented Hate: Orlando’s Massacre and its Karmic Ties to Mass Shootings of the Recent Past, Part II

Orlando’s mass murders have been given distinction by being called the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. How can this be when it’s estimated over 100 black people were shot and killed during the East St. Louis Riots in Illinois in 1917 and roughly 150 Lacota Indians, 47 of them women and children were shot dead at the Wounded Knee Massacre in South Dakota in 1890.

The media is amiss for not stipulating that Orlando stands out as the worst case of mass shooting carried out by a lone gunman to date in American History. But even with these distinctions of darkness being clarified, Orlando’s horror is still very much connected to the tragedies which took place in East St. Louis and Wounded Knee by virtue of its displays of violence being concentrated towards a select group of people, namely the LGBT community.

Unprecedented Hate: Orlando’s Massacre and its Karmic Ties to Mass Shootings of the Recent Past, Part I

The most recent addition to the list of mass shooting horrors not only includes a new geographic location and backdrop setting, it surpasses the rest by instilling a different dimension of blind hatred as its motive, making it the worst case of mass murder by a lone gunman in America’s History to date.

What makes this unspeakable event record-breaking is Orlando’s killings expand beyond the common mass shooting themes of “terrorism” and/or “mental instability” as its motive for occurring. With the slaughter of so many innocent lives taking place at a gay night club, Orlando’s tragedy escalates it to record heights by virtue of the mind numbing event being both the worst case of mass shooting in American history as well as the most notorious example in modern memory of a hate crime being perpetrated by an individual towards a particular minority group.

Beneath the Surface – The Cancerian Camera of Ringo Starr, Part II

It began with an overlooked box.

Placed on a high shelf, the box had changed locations after numerous moves, numerous times. Nobody considered opening it.

Until 2012, when much to Ringo Starr’s delight he discovered the box contained old postcards that went back as far as 50 years earlier.

And that was just the tip of the sentimental iceberg.

While in the process of “tidying up”, the man known as the “Fourth Beatle” came across a hitherto unopened drawer that when discovered, revealed the most priceless of treasures – hundreds of photographic negatives, the majority taken during a time when the Beatles were still a band and more popular than the big G himself, 1964-1970.

With every photo being taken by the Fourth Beatle, himself.

Beneath the Surface – The Cancerian Camera of Ringo Starr, Part I

The Funny one. The Last one. The Fourth one.

These are some of the various nicknames that have been tagged onto the personage of Ringo Starr, former drummer and part time vocalist for the band that many regard to be the most influential group in rock history – The Beatles.

Being a Beatles aficionado myself, I’ll be the first to admit the Water signed members of The Fab Four got the short end of the stick when it came to the band’s overall global popularity and international fandom. True to their astrological elements, the Watery duo of Ringo the homey Cancerian and George the humble Piscean quietly took an emotionally sensitive back seat to the non-stop jet stream of verbal communication and creatively rich ruminations that emanated from the Air signed duo of Libran John Lennon and Gemini Paul McCartney.

Despite the majority of the Free World waiting with anxious anticipation over every thought and utterance that came from the powerhouse pair of Lennon & McCartney during the height of the band’s popularity, the watery members of the Fab Four seemed content simply in being exactly just that.

However among the Beatle obsessed, it’s inherently understood The Fab Four didn’t become a musical religion in their own right due to Ringo and George meekly shutting up, looking pretty, and playing their respective instruments whenever needed. Both Water signed mop tops were crucial contributors to the Beatles’ stratospheric success by ways that were indicative of their shared astrological element of Water.

Norway’s Day of Deadly Discord: Homogeny, Patriotism, & Eris – Part III

Seeing Eris in the same location of the sky as the God of War, Mars, and The Head Honcho of the Heavens, Jupiter, at the time of bin Laden’s death motivated me with trepidation to write in my article, “Of Mars, Marines, & Mefistofele” these words:

“Keeping in mind how Eris operates, it is imperative we do not fall into the trap of thinking now that Ding, Dong, the Anti-Christ is dead, everything will all work out and terrorism is forever vanquished! Eris enters whenever mortals foolishly feel all is said and done and everything is complete. Seeing the joyful reactions of the American public in the streets and other public venues to the death of bin Laden only creates seeds of Vendetta which begin to germinate in the hearts of many upon viewing such folly. Plus, Starting or listening to mythic rumors of bin Laden being the vanquished Anti-Christ is a perfect tool to lull us into false hope right before Eris commences her dirty work.”

And commence she did.

With the Goddess of Discord placing herself next to the planet of the Personal and of Patriotism, the Moon, Eris threw in the world’s face a nice, big smoke screen on July 22nd.

Upon hearing the first news reports of a bomb being detonated in Europe, almost everyone thought this was once again the doings of al-Quaeda or at the very least, a Muslim suicide bomber.

When the media spoke of mass killings in Oslo a short time later, it was presumed the dark forces of various Islamic extremists were working in synchronous tandem, only to hear….

a Norwegian did this?
