Born Beneath a Self Combusting Sun: Arnold, Bill, Martha, and Monica

With words like “Sun”, “Star”, and “Shine”often used to describe the Solar ruled personality, everything is lit up, out in the open, and on display for all to see. But nothing in the Universe can be that strongly one dimensional all the time nor can anything be so powerfully placed in the positive spectrum without there being some kind of opposing balance or without burning out altogether.

Brexit’s Imminent Arrival & Great Britain’s Political State of Inertia – Part II

“Loose talk about proposals for negotiations is irresponsible. We agreed that it is now time for Boris Johnson to produce his own proposals in writing – if they exist. If no proposals are received by the end of September, then it’s over.”

– Atti Rinne, Prime Minister of Finland and current President of the European Union with Emmanuel Macron, President of France at a Paris press conference on September 18th, 2019.

Going by the words of the EU President Atti Rinne said on September 18th, it appears Britain’s current Prime Minister hasn’t even gotten around to putting any of the United Kingdom’s concerns in writing at this beyond critical stage of the Brexit game.

Brad Kronen Presents his First Published Book for 2019 – “Seven Tales of Hubris & Other Divine Things”

In Brad’s book “Seven Tales of Hubris & Other Divine Things”, the majority of these tales from antiquity deal with the concept of “Hubris”, a quality found among those particularly silly humans who feel they are above the jurisdiction of both the gods and their fellow mortals

…and unfortunately pay a dear price for believing such folly.

Roman Polanski: The Ever Elusive Search for Security, Part III

Part II left off after the emergence of a new layer of Hell which Roman Polanski was forced to face, that being Life following the gruesome murders of his wife Sharon Tate and unborn son. As this series has repeatedly shown, the man has been no stranger to horrific tragedy but it must be said the continuity of tragic theme throughout his life is nothing short of astounding when considering his pregnant wife’s murder to that of his pregnant mother’s untimely death in Auschwitz, to even the subject matter of the film he had just finished directing before calamity struck where in “Rosemary’s Baby” a pregnant woman is besieged by the followers of a Satanic cult. This thread of tragic theme is reflected in Polanski’s chart with the most elevated planet being the Moon, the planet of motherhood and pregnancy conjunct the planet of death and anything of cult-like status, Pluto by one degree.

The aspect about the myth of Persephone which I find most fascinating can also be directly applied to the life of Roman Polanski. What binds Persephone to the Underworld is the eating of six seeds which can be interpreted as the innocently pure maiden ingesting the darkness of her captor and it taking hold or in the literal sense takes “seed” to further grow in her psyche. Said another way by being exposed to Hades/Pluto’s violence, lust, and assertion of power, Persephone has the potential for those very same Plutonian expressions at her disposal since she has eaten that which comes from the Lord of the Underworld’s domain. In the same vein, as a helpless child the director had his mother taken from him, followed later by both his wife and helpless unborn child being destroyed, yet when the opportunity arose Mr. Polanski as a 43 year old adult at the time felt the impulsive need to sexually dominate a victim who was herself, a mere child.

Fritz Haber – Modernity’s Mutable Angel of Life and Death, Part II : Killing Millions

As Fritz Haber saw it, he was a German first and foremost, in particular, a Prussian. So when War broke out in the summer of 1914, Haber did what any good Prussian would do – the man devoted every waking minute to the War effort to ensure victory for the Fatherland.

This is reflected in the quote he is remembered most for saying:

“During Peace time a scientist belongs to the world, but during War time, he belongs to his country.”
– Fritz Haber

Many within his field could not have wholeheartedly disagreed more with Haber’s stance on Science’s role in times of War, such as his good friend Albert Einstein, who said on numerous occasions during both World Wars that his only allegiance was to being a Pacifist.

As the First World War raged more and more, so too did Haber’s zealotry for his country. Despite it being clearly obvious how much his patriotic drive was dividing him between long standing colleagues like Einstein and even his own spouse, Fritz Haber’s fervor for the Fatherland was undeterred.

Born Beneath a Self Combusting Sun: Arnold, Bill, Martha, and Monica

The hubris of many an unevolved Sun ruled person is the mistaken belief of them thinking he or she is equal to the Gods and above reproach from the Laws of Man. What began as an astrological “connect the dots” of recognizing a running theme of the Leo basking in the spotlight of fame with that same Leonine personality being the cause of their own undoing has unfolded further out into “The Grid” of the Cosmos, with the birth chart taking on an entirely new dimension of meaning and karmic purpose.
