Happy Autumn, Everyone! It’s the first week of October and for many of us this time of year is a reminder to begin motivating ourselves in preparation for a particular seasonal activity – Christmas Shopping! Brad thought he would ease some of the potential Yuletide pressure by letting everyone know his astrological dating guide […]Read more "Brad Kronen’s Astrological Dating Guide “Love in the Stars” Now Individually Tailor Made for each Zodiacal Sign!"
Their highly charged romance has been described as “the Romeo and Juliet of the 20th century” and their conjoined artistry has been likened to “a poetic powerhouse rivaled only by Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning”. Despite all the literary and poetic accolades heaped upon the two, the relationship between the greatest poets of their Age, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, is made hollow by the nature of the couple’s highly tragic Fate.
To be expected, the marriage between these Fixed sign intellectuals appears to have always been fueled by both the Leo’s and Scorpio’s inherently intense passions but even with that said, your Author must emphasize the following astrological relationship rule:
A marriage between two Fixed Signs is never “easy” by virtue of the varying degree of “challenge” that is constantly present.
And a marriage between two Fixed Signs who are each important in their own individualized right that has no sense of compromise between the two, is undoubtedly doomed.Read more "Death & The Maidens – Sylvia Plath, Assia Wevill, and Ted Hughes"
The union between the King and Queen of France, Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette sets a memorable standard on how NOT to behave within a partnership be it via a marriage or a monarchy. For not only did the relationship between the 18th century rulers not survive due to both parties repeating negative behavior cycles inherent within their Virgo Scorpio union, their cyclical blunders were the cause behind neither of the two royals surviving at all.
The King and Queen’s failure to trust each other along with their inability to communicate openly and honestly between themselves are the key factors which make their royal partnership one of the most tragic (and gruesome) examples of its kind in all of Western History.Read more "Valentine Words of Warning – Louis XVI & Marie Antoinette: How NOT to behave within a Partnered Relationship or Reign of Rulership"
Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe were each artistic geniuses in their own right and from a personal perspective, geniuses are never easy to deal with and tend to be difficult at best, especially when two of them reside under the same roof together.
The Scorpio and the Capricorn were inherently aware of each other’s genius temperaments and their marriage wouldn’t have lasted past a year if a sense of relaxed trust wasn’t instilled in their matrimonial bond from the start.Read more "Georgia O’Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz: A Bond Forged in Artistry and Romance"
Towards the end of his not so long lived life, Richard Burton was asked by a friend what the epitaph on his grave should read. Without pausing, the actor quoted the English Romantic poet John Keats saying, “Here lies one whose name was writ in water.”
Apt words said by a person whose birth occurred while the Sun was placed in the element of Water in the sign of Scorpio. A phrase which could just as easily been applied if the epitaph included both himself and the love of his life, fellow Water sign, Elizabeth Taylor.
There’s an old astrological adage that at first glance sounds almost dimwitted for its obviousness, but its meaning holds far more of a profound significance: “Water Reflects.” Should a person born beneath the element of Water experience inner doubt or question their self-worth, quite often they’ll “reflect” the strongest aspects of their surroundings. This mirroring effect of the Water sign could take the form of imitating another in closest vicinity with the strongest ego or by the Watery person “reflecting” the traits of their overall environment should they stand out substantially more than any one person’s personality.
The love affair between actors Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton was notoriously well known in part because at its tempestuous core were two Water signs desperately trying to find their own sense of self within each other’s famous reflection.Read more "Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton: A Love Writ in Water"
Despite the two words listed above being associated with a famed celebrity whom much of the world adores and admires, they speak of a fabricated creation.
The surname of “Turner” represents a branding of Scorpionic control since it refers to the last name of its domineering creator. The significance of the first name is important only for its phonetic similarity to a female superhero from the world of comic books, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.
Before the musical duo that was “Ike and Tina” is examined any further, some realistic truths must first be relayed. Much like how society’s perception of his natal sign has become more and more myopic in the present day, with only the most cartoon-like aspects of the unevolved Scorpio personality being noticed, Ike Turner is viewed by many in the 21st century strictly through a distorted lens of the most evil, villainous kind. Case in point, the character of Ike Turner from the film, “What’s Love Got To Do With It” ranked #4 in Vibe Magazine’s “Best Movie Bad Guys”.
Unbeknownst but factually true none the less, there is a lot more behind the man whose name will most likely go down in Rock History primarily as “that drugged up crazy dude who beat up Tina”.Read more "Ike & Tina Turner: The Duo that did Things “Nice and Rough”"

There may be a lot of light-hearted fun associated with Halloween and its gag costumes along with its activities centered around the kiddies but just like the Scorpios we know and love, this autumn holiday is at its very essence INTENSE and HARDCORE by virtue of it dealing with:
– Nighttime (The Sun MUST set first before the revelries begin)
– Ransom (How else would you categorize a command like “Trick or Treat!”)
– Terror or Fright (“The one with the scariest costume wins the Halloween Grand Prize!”)
– The Recognition of Death Itself (said another way, the Horror Film in all its gratuitous glory)
– The Recognition of Those who have Died (The predominant imagery associated most with this holiday are gravestones, skeletons, and ghosts)
– The Recognition of Forces unseen by Mortals (Witches and Witchcraft, Demons and Demonic Possession, and lest we not forget the Donald Trump of all that is diabolical, the Devil himself)
– The Recognition of Our Own Mortality (The Jack-o-Lantern)Read more "Halloween & The Season of Scorpio – A Time for the Sheared Soul to Shine"
With all things karmicly considered, one astrological feature prominently stands out in Orlando’s chart by being a key factor in both of the massacre’s Fingers of God along with serving as the connecting bridge which activated the chart’s karmic energies with those of the killer – the planet of sexual drive but more importantly of Guns and Firearms, Mars.
A plague has already begun not just in the United States but globally where militaristic weapons of war are being purchased by individuals who in turn proceed to use those same weapons to destroy the lives of as many innocent victims as they can before either doing themselves in or being forcibly removed from this world by surrounding authorities. By not demanding that our government enact the strictest of requirements which limit access to purchasing these Martian ruled tools of death, we are inviting blood baths like Orlando to occur again, but on a far bigger and more devastating scale.
In this day and age, when we as a technologically savvy, civilized society should be tolerant of every race, creed, color and variation of sexual orientation, Omar Mateen unto himself regretfully represents how much more work humanity still needs to desperately get done.Read more "Unprecedented Hate: Orlando’s Massacre and its Karmic Ties to Mass Shootings of the Recent Past, Part III"
