Did you know since ancient times the Universe has had its own karmic penal code specially designed for the Solar personality?
Did you also know your author has recently devised an astrological technique on how to apply this penal code to the birth charts of the Solar ruled in the modern day and has come up with a name for the astrological term he invented?
THE HUBRIS MANIFESTOR.
In December of 2018 renowned astrologer Brad Kronen wrote Book 1 of this unique series entitled: “The Hubris Manifestor & The Solar Personality: Arnold, Bill, Martha, and Monica” where he took his first of its kind astrological theory and applied it to the public scandals of four famous Leos – Arnold Schwarzenegger, President Bill Clinton, Martha Stewart, and Monica Lewinsky.
In Book 2 of this series which focuses on the physical manifestation of Hubris occurring to the Solar ruled, two additional Solar personalities are put on display in the Leo Hall of Shame – the two most controversial film directors of the 20th century Leni Riefenstahl and Roman Polanski.
Both Leos achieved international acclaim for their films and breadth of artistic vision. Both Leos received numerous awards for their creative contributions. Both Leos have committed acts of Hubris that defy comprehension.
Allow Brad in his latest book to once again show by famous example that it doesn’t pay to get a God Complex ….especially when the Gods are watching.

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?
What’s with all the pastels?
Why is lamb eaten at Easter and not rabbit?
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. Holy-days such as:
St. Patrick’s Day, Michaelmas, as well as the Feast of St. Lucy.Read more "Brad Kronen Explores Holidays that are Holy Days with his book “The Astrology of Easter & Other Holy-Days”"
