In astrology, the elements of Air and Fire are considered complementary to each other. The complementary ease of creative output that occurred whenever the Air sign composer partnered up with his Fire signed lyricist of a brother resulted in a song book that is distinctly American and a class unto itself.Read more "Rhapsody in Royal and Pastel Blue: The Complementary Combo of George & Ira Gershwin"
The dichotomy of differences between the personal lives of Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, made them not only appear truly odd together as a couple, it must additionally be stated neither was the other’s first choice for a romantic partner.
Much like their opposing backgrounds, History has placed nearly every one of President Lincoln’s deeds through a predominantly positive lens, while dualistically the vast majority of his wife’s actions have been put through a filter that’s as unattractive as it is thoroughly negative.
Astrologically, the Lincolns’ historical personae reflect the inherently best and worst aspects of the signs each was born under.Read more "Abraham & Mary Todd Lincoln: Constancy in the face of Dualistic Decimation"
Over the course of this series, we have observed how the themes of generosity and goodwill displayed by a man living in 3rd century Asia Minor have progressed through the centuries via the oral traditions of story telling and legend. The generous acts made by this one individual would eventually in turn be elevated to reflect the deeds of a venerated Saint.
Astoundingly, the final factor which transforms a Turkish bishop named Nicholas from a saint to the timeless icon of holiday cheer known today as Santa Claus is the archetype-like astrological symbolism associated with his good deeds and generous nature.Read more "Santa Claus, Saints, & Sagittarius – Part IV"
Unlike the traditional development of those placed under the category of “Savior” where their time on earth begins in a state of humble poverty, Nicholas’ beginning is a proper reflection befitting a son of Jupiter by being born into a family of extreme wealth. This inherited wealth would be the main source behind the bishop’s benevolent reputation by Nicholas having the capability to bestow financial blessings on those around him and usually in their hour of desperate need. Along with his traditional depiction of red bishop’s robes and snow white hair, the predominant imagery associated with the saint is of him holding small satchels of gold. Even with that said, whenever the saint spread his wealth to help others, he did so with anonymity and usually in as furtive a manner possible, such as during the wee hours of night.Read more "Santa Claus, Saints, & Sagittarius – Part III"
As stated in Part I, the time of year associated mainly with both Christmas and Santa Claus falls within the Zodiacal period allotted to the sign of Sagittarius, whose planetary ruler is the Head Honcho of all heavenly bodies that orbit around our Sun, mighty Jupiter. Astrologically, the largest planet of our Solar System is also known as “The Great Benefic” due to Jupiter literally shielding Earth from a constant barrage of exploding asteroids and disintegrating comets on a regular basis with its massive magnetic belt.Read more "Santa Claus, Saints, & Sagittarius – Part II"
As with anything considered mythological, legendary, or even universal, historical fact is transcended in order to create an overall essence that can be readily embraced by all. The essence of the legend of St. Nicholas is based on the benevolent deeds of a man known to have existed in Asia Minor roughly between the years of 270 – 330 A.D. The fact this one individual has transformed into the universal icon of goodwill for most of the world’s population today is nothing short of a divine decree, since the life of Nicholas the man along with anything associated with the universal Santa Claus are all housed beneath a single astrological concept: the sign of Sagittarius and its planetary ruler, Jupiter.Read more "Santa Claus, Saints, & Sagittarius – Part I"
