The Lives of Controversial Film Directors Roman Polanski & Leni Riefenstahl are Analyzed in Book 2 of Brad Kronen’s series “The Hubris Manifestor & The Solar Personality”

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.

Available in both Paperback and Kindle Version!

Edith Stein: Seeker of Truth in a World devoid of Light, Part II

The Pontiff of the Catholic Church who canonized Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross was a man who lived in the vicinity during the time when St. Teresa’s martyrdom took place, the Polish Pope, John Paul II. His homily given on the day Edith Stein was made a saint sums up this extraordinary woman’s life quite fittingly:

“A woman in search of the truth has become a saint and martyr through the silent workings of divine grace…With her whole being she sought the truth, of which she wrote: “No spiritual work comes into the world without great suffering. It always challenges the whole person”. For a long time Edith Stein was a seeker. Her mind never tired of searching and her heart always yearned for hope. She traveled the arduous path of philosophy with passionate enthusiasm. Eventually she was rewarded: she seized the truth. Or better: she was seized by it. She discovered that Truth had a name: Jesus Christ.”

May each of us, no matter our creed, follow Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross’s example by giving our best to seek and hopefully find our own version of divine Truth.

Edith Stein: Seeker of Truth in a World devoid of Light, Part I

I have always been fascinated by authoritative figures within the realm of organized religion who come from backgrounds that are anything but religious or where they begin life following a faith with a foundation that seems almost diametrically opposed from the one they come to eventually embrace. Thus is the case with a Jewish woman born as Edith Stein who would eventually become the Catholic saint named Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.

Within Catholicism’s School of Saints, Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross is truly unique. Although reaching the highest level of Catholic spirituality, as a canonized saint Edith’s identity is still closely intertwined with her religion of birth given the fact Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross’ life ended in Auschwitz, the most notorious of Nazi extermination centers established during the Second World War which were built with the intent of annihilating the Jewish people as a whole.

Remembering Joe Green: The Life & Art of Giuseppe Verdi, Part VIII

During the Second World War at the Nazi concentration camp of Theresienstadt better known as Terezin, Verdi’s Requiem was performed an astounding 16 times. A Romanian conductor and composer named Rafael Schachter both organized and conducted the singers and instrumentalists from start to finish. Having only his one copy of the score which he carried with him everywhere, Schachter secretly arranged rehearsals with his fellow inmates until they were at a performance level to present Verdi’s masterpiece to the public. When asked why he dared to perform a Catholic Requiem among predominantly Jewish prisoners, Schachter replied:

“We must respond to the worst of mankind with the best of mankind.”

Through his life and art, it can be said that Giuseppe Verdi has assisted in bringing mankind significantly closer to a Divine Source.

Josef & Magda Goebbels: Scorpios Bound in Power, Purity, and Propaganda – Part II

As mentioned in Part I, the Minister of Propaganda had successfully trained his people into fearfully perceiving a foreign force known as Jewish intellectualism was soon to invade and destroy their world as they knew it. With that fear firmly put into place mentally, Goebbels stoked Germany’s sense of irrational paranoia by adding visual reinforcement.
