As the last two decades during the 3rd week of April have repeatedly shown, no other astrological influences could be at play other than the first of the Fire Signs, Aries, along with its planetary ruler, Mars, given the news making events taking place during that week have been consistently rife with chaotic violence, guns, and the literal presence of the element of Fire:
The OK City Bombing, the siege of the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, the Columbine and Virginia Tech Shootings, along with the most recent addition to this list of deadly current events – 2013’s Boston Marathon Massacre.
If we loosen the triple threat requirement of Violence, Flames, and Firearms and extend our search past the last 20 years, the list of historical events taking place during the third week of April expands substantially, each sharing a common theme of potential death and destruction. Consider the following:
The Pratt Street Riots, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the Great Toronto Fire, the San Francisco Earthquake, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the Illinois Tornado Outbreak.
As well as the most recent news event involvingthe element of Flame with the fire at Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral on April 15th, 2019.Read more "Unleashing More than just Showers – The Firearmed Flames of April, Part II"
Over the course of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, society has marked for posterity the lives of two exceptional people, both born beneath the sign of the Ram.
Their ability to express their natural Arien tendencies has resulted in schools, streets, and even days of the calendar year being dedicated in their honor.
These two fighters bravely went to battle in order to champion the rights and needs of those who were the most disadvantaged. Both children of Mars waged war in the front line trenches representing those who had neither the resources nor the willpower to defend themselves or their individual rights.
And the battle tactic of choice employed by these two Ram charged warriors?

On February 20th, 2019 a London art gallery officially announced that a 5 ft. tall x 6 ft. wide painting (shown above) that was found encrusted with grime and dust as well as stained by a water leak in the attic of a house in Toulouse, France in 2014 was a piece created by the man believed by many to be the most important artist from the Italian Renaissance, the master painter known as Caravaggio.
In 2010, a similar themed story emerged about the master painter that was far more personalized, given yet another find that was intimately associated with the life of this incomparable artist was re-discovered that year – his body.
In honor of the rediscovery of all and any things Caravaggesque, I re-present my 2010 piece written about exhuming the remains of both the master painter and those of the masochistic saint, Rose of Viterbo.Read more "The Sadistic Master Painter Encounters The Masochistic Saint: Exhuming the Remains of Caravaggio & Saint Rose of Viterbo"
Did you ever wonder why Christmas falls on the same day of the year but Easter doesn’t?
Why does Easter have bunnies delivering eggs? Bunnies don’t lay eggs….do they?

These and many other nagging holiday questions are addressed in Brad Kronen’s book “The Astrology of Easter & Other Holy-days”. And Kronen doesn’t put all of his eggs in just one holiday basket. The renowned astrologer looks at other holidays that are considered religious “holy-days” which admittedly are obscure and barely known by the general public but are rich in traditions based in religion, history, and astrology as well.
