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
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
Occursion Media has published its first newspaper. It is based here in Idaho Falls, and is the vision of my friend Terri Nelson Ireland, proprietor of the Healing Hands Metaphysical Store. It is called the Metaphysical Times: The Imbolc 2021 issue. 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
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?
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? (A reprint from 2015 about November 22)
If you have read Parts I and II, you are now ready to digest the most brazen part of the 9/11 fraud: Building 7. I find it interesting that, all these years later, most folks I talk to don't know about the collapse of Building 7 on 9/11. "There was a third building that collapsed, … Continue reading The Metonic Return of 9/11 – Part III
I don't like to glom onto tragedies in order to make self-aggrandizing, armchair quarterback pontifications about what happened, but given that this blog had been exploring the role of the fixed star Aldebaran in Vatican history, there are some things to say. As with any event, one can call up a sky chart for the … Continue reading The Reluctant Christchurch Massacre Post
In the first four parts of "(some) Vatican Astrology," I laid out the astrological charts for four major milestones in the Vatican's promotion of the Society of Jesus, better known as the Jesuits. They are: Regimini militantis ecclesiae — First approval — Sep 27 1540: Jupiter = Regulus; Saturn = Spica. Exposcit debitum — Second … Continue reading A Brief Introduction to (some) Vatican Astrology – Part V
In the previous three installments of "...(some) Vatican Astrology," I put forth three possible astrological charts for the Vatican's approbations of the Society of Jesus, also called the Jesuits: The three chart moments take place from 1540 to 1584, at the height of the Italian Renaissance, and also the final years of the Italian Wars. … Continue reading A Brief Introduction to (some) Vatican Astrology – Part IV
When I started this blog 11+ years ago, it was meant to be a joint project between myself, Ed Kohout, and researcher John Ballantrae, who also had a keen interest in astrology. John is no longer with us, and I continue to mourn his loss. He was a voracious reader and researcher, and offered insights … Continue reading I miss you, John.
