Hollywood fame. Tinsel Town glitz.
With the foundation behind the Mecca of the movie business being based in such non-realistic energies as hear say, rumor, and empty promises, the majority of Hollywood’s best known couples tend to have the shortest of shelf lives with most not being in any way memorable together as a romantic team.
Intriguingly, the couple from Hollywood’s “Golden Age” that’s still respected and admired in the present day just as much as when they were at the height of their romantic prime were both born beneath the most non-Tinsel Town like astrological element of Earth. Known for its ethic of hard work, grounded practicality and non-diva like behavior, both the great “film noir” actress Lauren Bacall was born beneath the middle of the Earth signs, Virgo, and the love of her life, one of the most popular actors of all time, Humphrey Bogart was born beneath the last of the Earth signs, Capricorn.

Throughout the Catholic Church’s history Mary has been a point of contention where some have said the woman who bore the mortal manifestation of Christ is inconsequential and still others have equivocated devotion towards the Blessed Mother to the worshipping of a pagan goddess.
The Blessed Mother may have begun life as a mortal being but her role in the Catholic Faith is to embody and sustain that mystical force known as the ancient feminine. This in turn elevates Mary’s status well beyond being merely a mortal woman who gave birth to the Messiah. As the force of the ancient feminine Mary serves as Catholicism’s fiercest defender of faith by being its most powerful form of protection against the forces of darkness and evil and Our Lady sustains the importance Catholicism still holds for humanity as the 21st century unfolds by her institution of the power of prayer.

The bigger than life obese man with the baby’s face who performed slapstick comedy with the agility of a seasoned acrobat was Hollywood’s biggest star throughout the 1910’s and by 1920 was Tinsel Town’s highest paid actor when Arbuckle signed a contract with Paramount Pictures for $1 million which equals to roughly $14 million today.
The comedian who could make audiences roar with laughter by doing something as menial as eating from a bowl of spaghetti seemingly had the Midas touch where anything involving the one and only Fatty Arbuckle drew box office gold.
But all of that came to an abrupt end at a chic hotel in San Francisco during the first week of September in 1921.

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.
