Brad Kronen presents the archived recordings from his “Welcome to the Zodiac“(WTZ) series, a group of 12 introductory lectures originally broadcasted on blogtalkradio.com, each dedicated to one of the 12 signs of the Zodiac. In each show, Brad explains everything you’d ever want or needed to know about those particular residents of that cosmic wheel of the Universe otherwise known as the signs of the Zodiac. Not only are the basic personality traits associated with each sign thoroughly discussed in easy to understand language, Brad also relays detailed aspects to each of the 12 signs of the Zodiac most never knew existed, such as their origin along with the variety of everyday things assigned to them such as a sign’s – tree, flower, spice, animal, foodstuff, dedicated cities throughout the globe, as well as famous personalities born beneath each sign and how their personas reflect the nature of the particular sign each celebrity was born under. Accompanying every WTZ show is a formal announcement which opens with three choice quotes said by three famous personalities born beneath that show’s highlighted sign. The series also has a “WTZ Icon” for every show, an image chosen by Brad which captures each sign’s overall essence, as well as a “WTZ Song”, a piece of music chosen by Brad which he considers to be that sign’s unofficial “anthem”.
So join the renowned astrologer and author of the 21st century guide to astrology and relationships “Love in the Stars” on a journey like no other, as Brad Kronen introduces the basic wonders which form the foundation of one of Mankind’s most ancient studies, better known as Astrology by welcoming you to the Zodiac.
WELCOME TO THE ZODIAC SERIES
The Allegorical Tale of the Life of Benjamin Button
|“Workin’ 9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that I
Would deserve a fair promotion”
– Written and sung by Dolly Parton, Capricorn
“You ask anybody what their number one fear is and it’s public humiliation.”
– Mel Gibson, Actor, Director, Producer, and Capricorn
“She works hard for the money.”
– Written and sung by Donna Summer, Capricorn
Capricorn is truly a sign unto itself. The typical Goat Guy and/or Girl is born into this world knowing that NOTHING in life is free and that there’s a price to pay for anything of considerable worth or value. Unlike the sign previous to them that has a tendency to rely on “dumb luck”, the only thing in Life the last of the Earth signs consistently relies upon is their work ethic like no other with an unbreakable focus on the “goal”.
Aragorn: Are you frightened?
Aragorn: Not nearly enough. I know what hunts you.
– Dialogue from “The Fellowship of the Ring” written by J.R.R. Tolkien, Author and Capricorn
Being ruled by Saturn, the planet deemed the “Great Malefic”, those born beneath the sign of Capricorn have a hyper-realistic view of life along with a tendency to soberingly see the glass as “half empty”. In his foreword to “The Fellowship of the Ring” J.R.R. Tolkien states that by the year 1918 (the writer was on the verge of his Saturn Return at the age of 26) he had lost all but one of his childhood and college friends due to the ravages of World War I. It’s no wonder at the start of the Second World War when England would be terrorized from the nightly bombs of the Nazi Blitzkrieg, Tolkien would begin writing his epic “The Lord of the Rings” which commences with an ever approaching, all encompassing force of evil whose sheer purpose is annihilation.
With an opener like that, why bother with a strategy for defense let alone survival? The Capricorn author shows us that there is always hope if one can adhere to focusing on one’s goals no matter how hard the obstacles in between. Amazingly, the hope of Middle “Earth” depends upon the hard working toil of a few Hobbits who literally must ascend a mammoth “mountain” named after Doom itself to its very height or in non literary terms: a day in the life of a Capricorn.
But Capricorn isn’t simply all toil and trouble. That’s just the first part of their usually long lived lives. The Mystic Mountain Goat is the only sign of the 12 where life literally goes in reverse. So much so, upon seeing the life reversing film, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” I couldn’t help but call the motion picture that portrays Brad Pitt’s character beginning life as an old man by an alternative title of my own creation, “The Allegory of the Capricorn”.
Capricorn and even more so Capricorn Rising people have no childhoods. Within the heart of every 10 year old Goat kid lies the mindset of an ever-responsible, over-worrying 45 year old grown up due to the young Capricorn having to face adult situations while still children, such as having to work at an extremely early age or playing parent to their parent. As children, Cappies tend to be quite serious with no time for skipping, giggling, or being in any way spontaneous. The typical Capricorn’s high school years tend to be the apex of paying their dues of difficulty early on and the college years which proceed soon there afterward don’t fare much better either.
However it’s when the rest of the Zodiac falls apart during the time period known as one’s “Saturn Return” occurring between the ages of 28-31 that the Capricorn finally comes into their own. with each subsequent year past the age of 31 getting easier, lighter, funnier, and sexier for the children of Saturn.
And since Saturn is known as the planet which oversees “structure”, the two areas of the body assigned to Capricorn are those which provide our physical selves its structural form, namely the bones and skin. In turn, the vast majority of Cappies get only better and better looking as they age regardless of gender with their physical features becoming ever more distinguished as their bone structure and skin are made sexier with time.
So join me, won’t you? And for Saturn’s sake, wear some sensible shoes! We have some serious mountain climbing to do!

Welcome to the Zodiac Icon for Capricorn: Every sign in the Zodiac has its symbol. I took things an astrological step further by choosing images which captured each sign’s essence and making them each sign’s official “Icon” for my Welcome to the Zodiac series. The icon selected for every sign ranges from the obvious to the esoteric.
See the article link below regarding a certain Capricorn President as to why this picture is the Mystic Mountain Goat’s chosen “Icon”. Remember Cappies, one of your sign’s best traits can also be one of your worst enemies – “Ambition“.
