The recent invasion of Ukraine by the regime of Russia’s Vladimir Putin has been a hot topic in online astrology discussion groups. Here at Occursion, it is my aim to present data that won’t be found anywhere else, so I won’t be discussing the standard take on things. Instead, this article is intended to “unpack” … Continue reading The “Third Rome” and the War on Ukraine – an Astro-iconological Perspective

The Astro-Masonic City Charter of Chicago
A nice example of a nexus between Masonic astrology and government/municipal astrology is seen with the history of Chicago. As we know, Chicago grew to be the nation's second-largest city, and is a major economic driver of the economy. Chicago boasted the tallest of a new kind of building called a "skyscraper" when it constructed … Continue reading The Astro-Masonic City Charter of Chicago
May Day: Beltane, the Illuminati, George Washington, the 33, and then Mars
History tells us that a man named Adam Weishaupt founded the "Illuminati" (or at least some version of something like it?) on May 1, 1776, at Ingolstadt, Bararia. The choice of date was certainly not accidental, as the 1st day of May in the Holy Roman Empire was the (Roman) calendarized observance of the first … Continue reading May Day: Beltane, the Illuminati, George Washington, the 33, and then Mars
Just One More on the Bonesmen, the Arab League, and the End of World War II, but then some Jesus!
In the last two entries on this venerable blog, I danced around the edges of the Boulder, CO mass shooting and the Arab League, noting that they are both connected to a special "ritual" date of March 22 - it being the date the damning Mueller Report was submitted to the USA AG, and also … Continue reading Just One More on the Bonesmen, the Arab League, and the End of World War II, but then some Jesus!
A Bit More on the Astrology of the Arab League
My little career in astrology has been mostly about exploring the theory that the craft has been, and continues to be used by the upper echelons of power to ritually time events. I've mostly looked at this through the lens of my own cultural milieu, which is the realm of the USA, the UK, and … Continue reading A Bit More on the Astrology of the Arab League
The Ritual Date of 3/22
More "high strangeness" from the astrological world this last week has prompted a new blog entry. On 3/22/21, a young man went on a shooting rampage in Boulder, Colorado. We now know the person is of Syrian birth, but grew up in the USA. We also know he is a bit of a loner, a … Continue reading The Ritual Date of 3/22
The Sacred Dimensions of USA Football: Stupor Bowl 55 Edition
It's that time of year again for "the big game," and also time for me to post more fodder about the deliberate standards of USA football. Will Tom Brady win? I could care less. But I am interested in how sacred measures are snuck into our everyday lives. For instance, did you ever wonder why … Continue reading The Sacred Dimensions of USA Football: Stupor Bowl 55 Edition
Our First Issue of the “Metaphysical Times” Has Hit the Streets

In this venture, I am doing the layout and design, and will contribute an … Continue reading Our First Issue of the “Metaphysical Times” Has Hit the Streets
HAL 9000, Kubrick & Clarke: Some Astrolodyssey in the cut?
Many of us in the geek continuum have been excited to learn about a giant steel monolith being discovered in the Utah desert. It gives me chills, though only because I, as many others, believe Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" is the best movie ever made, and has encoded within it some highly important ideas … Continue reading HAL 9000, Kubrick & Clarke: Some Astrolodyssey in the cut?
The Popes, the Jesuits, and … Astrology? (A reprint from 2015 about November 22)
by Ed Kohout This is a reprint of something I wrote 5 years ago, back when I could write whatever I wanted. I want to dedicate this to Samuel F. Reynolds, a fellow astrologer who is also born on the magical "11/22" date, and who has always impressed me with his professionalism in the craft. … Continue reading The Popes, the Jesuits, and … Astrology?
