Brad Kronen’s Welcome to the Zodiac Series – Pisces

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
Pisces GlyphPISCES:
Preternatural Powerhouse
or Passively Powerless?

 “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
– Albert Einstein, Piscean

“You were made perfectly to be loved – and surely I have loved you, my whole life long.” – Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Piscean

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.”
– Anais Nin, Piscean

The modern day world can be quite overwhelming for this most sensitive of signs. I personally consider those born beneath the last sign of the Zodiac as “psychic anemones”, where their intuitive radar is always on, causing the typical Fish person to be swayed (and many times frayed) by the emotional energies that surround their world. Because of their sign’s acute state of emotional reception and hyper-intuitive sensitivity, “escape” is a very real need for every Piscean. It’s how they choose to escape which determines how well those born under the last of the Water/Mutable/Karmic signs adapt to today’s ever changing pressures.

Does the Piscean:

Take the evolved route of escape by tapping into their sign’s naturally vast reserves of creative imagination and actively participate and/or express themselves in the highest forms of artistic expression associated with their sign such as: Poetry, Ballet, Opera, Painting, Experimental Theater, etc.

Or

Venture down another evolved route of escape where they expand upon their sign’s inherent capacity to be sympathetic to those in need and empathetic to the world’s pain by spending time in any of the following “institutions” which reside under their sign’s naturally ruling 12th House: hospitals, prisons, charity/non-profit organizations of any kind

Or

Escape through the following which by their capacity for one’s sense of self to become lost are considered thoroughly unevolved: alcohol, drugs, pornography, video games, soap operas, bad TV or too much time spent on the internet
Every person born beneath the sign of the Cosmic Fish comes into this world “preternaturally pre-equipped” with a powerful sense of inborn intuition that as of late has been optimally humming along by being in tune with the workings of the real time Universe. This is due to the heavenly body otherwise known as “the watery planet”, Neptune, currently freestyling through its home turf of the deep seas of Pisces from the present day until January of 2026. As their planetary ruler sails through their sign over the course of the upcoming decade does the Piscean forego their escapist tendencies and fully embrace their preternatural powerhouse selves or go running for cover convinced they are powerless in a self-imposed state of permanent passivity?

A great example of a Piscean who was fully connected with the Universe at large by embracing a Neptunian lifestyle of unconditional love would often use fish imagery to bring his point across to others:

“I will make you fishers of men.” – Jesus Christ, Piscean

So join me, won’t you? And clasp hands! That tidal wave otherwise known as “the Other” draws ever nearer to sweep us out to open seas.

Brad Kronen’s Welcome to the Zodiac Series – Pisces

Welcome to the Zodiac Icon for Pisces: 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.

Ichthys

In the modern day, how do Christians identify themselves? Through the ancient symbol of the “Ichthys” which in Greek refers to the animal whose image symbolizes the sign of Pisces, “Fish”. A simple stick figure of a fish representing the universality of Christianity may seem insignificantly odd at first glance, but the Ichthys is a potent symbol none the less, with its imagery being nearly as recognizable as the Christian cross itself.

For those who believe Christianity’s source entered this plane of existence on the 25th of December, it’s highly recommended the lot of you read something else for the time being. A significant number of today’s astronomers, historians, and astrologers concur that the man who lies at Christianity’s core, better known as Jesus Christ was more than likely born in the early part of March, quite possibly on the 2nd day of that month in the year 5BC. Astrologically, this would make the flesh and blood embodiment of Christianity’s source born beneath the last sign of the Zodiac whose symbol is the Ichthys, itself.

Said another way, Jesus was a Pisces.

With that in mind, it should be of no surprise that the man born beneath the sign associated with spirituality and universal love over any kind of organized religion reinforced that sign’s themes by choosing fishermen as his first apostles, having fishes and loaves materialize to feed countless masses as one of his most impressive miracles, and subsequently told said fishermen that they would become “fishers of men”.

Not bad to sum up the end of the Zodiac overall.

Welcome to the Zodiac Song(s) for Pisces: “Other-wordliness” is a staple part of the cosmic diet of the Pisces. Neptune is the planetary ruler over the last sign of the Zodiac and attempting to even describe the watery planet’s domains are fiendishly tricky due to the 2nd furthest planet from the Sun being associated with anything “intangbile”. Neptune is known as the “boundary-less” planet and its most potent influence over we Earth folk is complete submersion into such intangible things as fantasy, illusion, deception, film, high-brow art, religious secularism, daydreams, and through  addictions of every kind imaginable. Neptune’s penultimate goal is for the “self” to completely become immersed into the “other” where the boundaries of clarity thoroughly dissolve and one can’t tell where they’ve ended and where the “other” begins.

What the evolved Pisces does while in their world of their individualized “other” is what makes them so special.  And my biggest musical influence growing up is o so special because I give this lead singer and her band credit for making me “me” in many ways.

Growing up in a cow town in middle of nowhere Connecticut, I still can remember the first time I saw an image of Missing Persons and oddly enough it was from the evening news with Peter Jennings.  The year was 1982 and the nightly news was on, reporting about a new medium of artistic expression otherwise known as “the music video”. I can still remember looking up from my homework to see a reporter followed by a 5 second clip from the video “Words” by Missing Persons.

I’m afraid I can’t recall much of what followed afterwards.

Seeing Dale Bozzio’s legs cementedly fixed in place while wearing 6 inch plastic spikes and a plexiglass box over her hips as her torso hypnotically moved back and forth – altered me permanently. As if that wasn’t enough to completely undo me, not only did this sorceress of a singer bedazzle me with her white hair streaked with bright flashes of blue and fuchsia on the left side of her head, while Dale’s upper body swayed, a thin strand of braided hair measuring over 2 feet flung in time with the rest of her compact frame.

Missing Persons (consisting of Dale Bozzio, vocals, Terry Bozzio, drums, Warren Cuccurullo, guitar, Patrick O’Hearn, bass, and Chuck Wild, keyboards) was MY band and MY music – not something I was forced to listen to by either of my older brothers. They were one of the first bands that ushered in the early 80’s music movement better known as “Nu Wave”, which deviated from the overplayed classic rock hits from the 70’s and late 60’s.

It was only after becoming an astrologer that I was able to observe how the content of my favorite band’s songs were unmistakably Piscean in essence. Not surprising, when considering Missing Person’s leading lady, Dale Bozzio, is herself, a daughter of Neptune, with my rock goddess sharing the same date of birth theoretically as the big “JC” himself of March 2nd.

We’ll start with my favorite song of all time – “Words”. In true mutable signed dualistic fashion, the song “Words” has nothing to do with verbal communication.  If the Piscean had it their way, talking would be reserved for emergencies only. Words, for the Fish Folk, are many times sources of confusion that distract the last of the Water signs from being in synch with their natural intuitive radar.

The technological world may make a lot of noise with a bunch of words to get our attention, but how much of it is helpful or even effective? Consider that while pondering the lyrics to this song written over 30 years ago:

“Media overload bombarding you with action
It’s getting near impossible to cause distraction
Someone answer me…before I pull out the plug.”

The 2nd Piscean anthem of the Missing Persons kind is entitled “Windows”, where the Pisces wonders aloud why she can’t stay in her daydream land and watch the world go by from within the psychic window in her mind. Keeping in mind this is being pondered over by someone born beneath the Neptunian ruled sign that could make daydreaming an Olympic sport.

Lastly, MP’s most popular hit is called “Destination Unknown”. The Piscean singer may not necessarily have all the details down (that’s Virgo, Pisces’ polar opposite’s job) but still functions in her own way by allowing her intuition to guide her through life.

Gramps may have gone into ancient 80’s music overkill with three versus one Welcome to the Zodiac song but without Missing Persons who knows what Brad would have turned out to be?

 

“Words”

Do you hear me? Do you care? Do you hear me? Do you care?
My lips are moving and the sound’s coming out
The words are audible but I have my doubts
That you realize what has been said

You look at me as if you’re in a daze
It’s like the feeling at the end of the page when you realize
You don’t know what you just read.

What are words for? When no one listens anymore
What are words for? When no one listens There’s not use talking at all.

I might as well go up and talk to a wall
C’uz all the words are having no effect at all
It’s a funny thing…am I all alone?

Something has to happen to change the direction
What little filters though is giving you the wrong impression
“It’s a sorry state” I say to myself

What are words for When no one listens anymore What are words for
When noone listens what are words for When noone listens There’s no use talking at all.

Do you hear me? Do you care? Do you hear me? Do you care?
Let me get by over your dead body
Hope to see you soon, When will I know?
Doors three feet wide with no locks open
Walking always backwards, in the face of strangers
Time could be my friend But it’s less than nowhere now….

Pursue it any further and another thing you’ll find
Not only are they deaf and dumb they could be going blind
No one notices I think I’ll dye my hair blue.

Media overload bombarding you with action
It’s getting near impossible to cause distraction
Someone answer me…before I pull the plug.

What are words for When no one listens anymore
What are words for When no one listens there’s no use talking at all.

Do you hear me? Do you care?

“Windows”

Something feels so strange tonight
It’s not wrong but it’s just not right
Some hidden complications fill me with hesitation

And it gets so dark in here I can’t see through doubts and fears
Walled in by expectation I need a deviation
Change in perspective alternative view to help me see clearly- observe something new

All i want is a window to look through All i need is a window to look through
It’s the only thing that i wanna do anyway
All i want is a window to look through All i need is a window to look through
It’s the only thing that i really wanna do anyway

Outside the world is dangerous it’s hard to find someone to trust
Fills me with reservation Drives me into hibernation
I watch what’s going on but i don’t want to belong
Leave me my introspection safely behind protection

All I want is a window to look through All i need is a window to look through
It’s the only thing that i wanna do anyway
All I want is a window to look through All i need is a window to look through
It’s the only thing that i really wanna do anyway

Looking through windows at the world
Safe behind windows from the world
Watching my window world go by
Without my window who am I?

 

“Destination Unknown”

Life is so strange. When you don’t know. How can you tell where you’re going to?
You can’t be sure of any situation something could change and then you won’t know

Where do we go from here? It seems so all too near
Just as far beyond as I can see I still don’t know what this all means to me

I don’t know where to go I don’t know what to do
And I don’t even know the time of day I guess it doesn’t matter anyway

Life is so strange, Destination Unknown
When you don’t know – your destination.
Cause something could change.
It’s unknown and then you won’t know Destination Unknown

When will my time come? Has it all been said and done?
I know I’ll leave when it’s my time to go
Til then I’ll carry on with what I know

Life is so strange. Destination Unknown
When you don’t know – your destination.
Cause something could change –  It’s unknown.

And then you won’t know –  Destination Unknown

Life is so strange.
