IS THERE MEANING IN ITALY’S DEATH BY FALLING CRUCIFIX?
ACCIDENT OR BAD OMEN?
According to Silvio Citroni, mayor of Cevo village in Brescia, the tragic death beneath a suddenly falling massive crucifix of 21 year old Marco Gusmini on Thursday 24th April (some reports say Wednesday 23rd) was “inexplicable tragedy”. The Repubblica newspaper declared “Everyone is seeing a hidden hand, an undeclared meaning, connecting details that have no connection in reality”. Some Italians saw it as a bad omen for Italy. Lina Wertmuller, widow of Enrico Job, sculptor of the 600 kilogram Christ figure attached to the strange and almost sinister curved cross, also spoke of the tragedy and how silly it now seemed to regard the crucifix as a symbol for Italy and its protection.
The cross was dedicated to John Paul 11 and some Catholics have suspected divine disapproval of the canonization of this controversial Pope. The disaster occurred only days before his elevation to sainthood on Sunday 27th, and on the same day that the Vatican was hosting a press conference with the Costa Rican woman whose reported miracle had been a needed proof for the new status. In Cevo village pilgrims were celebrating the forthcoming ceremony for this pontiff who years before had visited their region of Lombardy and to whom, as said, the cross was dedicated. It seems a sudden wind loosed the giant 30 metre high cross from where it has for years been anchored to earth by cables tested for safety last year.
The accident in the run up to the double canonization in which John Paul was joined in sainthood with the reformist Pope John XX111 has seemed stranger still in light of the fact the pilgrim victim to the cross lived in a street named for…..Pope John XX111. It is the sort of thing that has helped take the event somewhat out of the range of just unfortunate occurrences into the realm of synchronicity and special messages.
But if so, just what messages? While the following makes no claim to be direct revelation from on high, I will present some uniquely suggestive information for what this event could signify. Due to the fact I have claimed for years now to possess the true birth data for Jesus (as per my Testament of the Magi, http://bit.ly/Y43dvj ) and provably so in that it also works for Christ events to this day, I was rather confident I should find something tellingly relevant and I feel that I have done so.
A “GRAND CROSS” SETTING TO BEGIN WITH
To place all this in context however, any astrologer would want to stress that on the 24th we had just passed exactitude of (and on the 23rd were still within) a stressed formation of the planets that stargazers had not liked the look of for some time. It stood moreover at the midpoint of 2 eclipses – the first being the lunar blood moon, first of the notorious blood tetrad which can have relevance to especially wars and affairs of Israel. Personally I suspect these recent signs were involved with the Ukraine crisis which could be seeding what will develop into something larger…..Be that as it may….the Italian crucifix disaster basically belongs within a celestial stress pattern called of all things The Grand Cross. This had lined up Mars at 13 Libra, Jupiter at 13 Cancer, Uranus at 13 Aries and Pluto at 13 Capricorn (though on the 24th Jupiter was just entering 14 degrees from 13 Cancer slightly easing the tension).
Libra, Cancer, Aries and Capricorn are what are called “cardinal” signs and they provoke action. 13 degrees of these signs are also deemed “critical”. This means they are accented, strong, liable to trigger events. Something serious had to happen. Mars itself is anyway an action planet, one often making for violence too. Uranus is any accidents, shocks and surprises. Pluto is force majeure, an extreme planet which I believe can be used as symbol for God as Creator and Judge.
Jupiter is the religion planet and was even the original Star of Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, (to be precise it was at 19 Pisces on the day of birth and if the day of the accident was the 24th as most claim, peaceful Venus at 20 Pisces had just departed from conjunction with that position, a point on which I can comment later). The crucifix that killed the unfortunate Marco was more the heavy sculpture of Christ’s body than the cross itself. Accidents are most essentially Mars/Uranus events. With these thoughts in mind, what was happening on the day to the chart of Christ?
ON THE ARMS OF THE GRAND CROSS
Uranus at 13 ARIES was conjunct the asteroid ITALIA at 13 Aries in Jesus’ birth chart. Italy would be deeply involved and shocked. And on the 24th itself ITALIA was transiting at 0 Aries, in other words on a world point. This was an Italian event the world would certainly hear of.
Opposite Uranus (and recall an accident event is itself a Uranus/Mars one), at 13 Libra stood Mars. But in the chart of Jesus 13 Libra is special. It is the position of Mercury, “ruler” of his body and even the whole birth pattern because the Mercurial sign of Gemini rises at the moment of birth. But for Jesus this degree is also the same as his Part of Death and the asteroid GRATIA (Grace). One could say the body of Christ was vowed to death, sacrificed to it, and full of physical and spiritual grace. But could contact with even the image of his body risk death under such as a Mars transit to this position?
Nothing of significance falls on 13 Capricorn in Jesus’ natus, but to the extent we might look at the chart of Christianity (taken from Pentecost AD 30) as a supplementary source for what is after all also a church involving event, 13 Capricorn happens to be the degree of REQUIEM (rest). And as it happens the Jupiter arm of the Grand Cross formation that I haven’t so far mentioned, is conjunct Jesus’ FRIEDEN (Peace) carrying the same kind of message. It may be assumed Marco went straight to God and Paradise – there is no Marco asteroid but its French equivalent, MARC, was strangely enough at the time of the accident at 0 degrees of dangerous Aquarius on an axis opposite to PARADISE at 0 Leo.
……But however interesting, none of this notably hints at the meaning of the event as any sign. We must look further.
THE DAY AND THE MEANING
On the 24th April the all-important sun at 4 Taurus exactly conjuncted the HELL asteroid in Christ’s chart . Obviously some would be inclined to blame precisely hell for the day’s disaster – the forces of evil busy trying to make the cross a symbol feared, rejected or neglected or even staking claims to a victim because the religious community had got too far outside the divine will. Moreover Saturn, planet of restriction and woe and often Satan-identified, at 21 of Scorpio ( a strong “critical” degree for “fixed” signs like Scorpio) was degree exact on Jesus’ own action releasing Mars, along with his FIDES (Faith) and SALAVAT (Salvation). Needless to say faith was severely challenged by the accident at Cevo!
But then on the other hand, and no matter at what precise time the accident occurred (around lunchtime is all I can find), the moon was in Pisces in 2 or 3 degrees conjunct the CHRIST asteroid for the day . What we have to consider in light of this and other factors (like this same difficult Sun fortunately trine COELUM/Heaven on the day) and that I shan’t include lest we finish with too many factors, is whether the meaning is something which could proceed from the forces of evil at the same time as it is could still be willed, or at least permitted and used by God as a specific sign of something.
I will immediately state I think there is as suspected something here about John Paul and his approaching canonization which the villagers and pilgrims were celebrating at a cross dedicated to him, because though I don’t know the precise time (I have guessed around 12.30 pm since lunch preparations were being made) for a start it is very likely for any “lunchtime” that JP11’s destiny and reputation sign of Leo would be rising, Also asteroid JEANPAUL is very strangely and weakly placed at 29.33 of Aquarius, the sign that Uranus of the shocks and surprises rules. Jean Paul associates with the accident event from its last degree as MARC(o) does from its first.
In order to comment and deduce anything at all from the data, before continuing a very few words about divine providence are appropriate. God doesn’t desire the death of persons through accidents and those who die in them aren’t automatically more guilty than anybody else – Jesus affirmed as much about those who died in the tower of Siloam (Luk 13:4). However, at least according to biblical rather than later philosophical Christianity that colours a lot of Catholic thought, the world most essentially belongs to the forces of evil and Jesus appears on earth to begin resistance to that rule. The original idea was also, rather as in continental law where one is assumed guilty unless proved innocent rather than innocent until proved guilty, that people – perhaps not everyone and certainly not children but in broad principle – are deemed simply guilty before God and needing ransom back from the devil who “owns” them. God does not deal with realms of sin, so prayer is important in invoking the protection and involvement God does not normally reckon to engage before the end of time and evil.
So……it follows that in an imperfect world God will permit evil, will refuse or withdraw any specific cover against it, especially so when evil and error pass beyond a certain point – the “wrath” of God usually signifies withdrawal of protection to let chaos have its natural way. But that same refusal, even leading on to disaster itself like the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon’s temple in 586 BC, then becomes prophetic lesson and sign. Something of the sort could well be the case in the bizarre, spectacular death of the unfortunate Mario.
JOHN PAUL A FALSE SAINT?
The crowd was celebrating the soon canonization of John Paul at John Paul’s own cross. Let’s not even dwell on the fact that at least Protestants would protest any cult of the saints amounted to practice of a species of forbidden idolatry or necromancy – it is biblically forbidden to attempt contact with the spirits of the dead Deut 18:11, even the righteous dead like King Saul attempting to contact the prophet Samuel. Prayer and worship is supposed to be directed to God alone. On this basis the fact that revered “saints” may give occasional well certified cures such as the Vatican was highlighting on the day of the accident, could be deemed irrelevant, especially as exorcists know that devils can be forced to withdraw a curse and thus cure people. So healing may not have the assumed source and might serve a wider deception.
But even assuming the cult of saints can be theologically justified, could and should it really be practiced in the case of specifically John Paul? His canonization has been rushed through by normal standards on public demand (the other Pope John XX111 has not even been required to supply the usual second miracle!). It is believed Pope Francis has been happy to waive rules because he wants the symbolism of joining an in some respects very traditionalist pontiff (John Paul) with a reformist, modern one (John X111).
But the more that is known and written about John Paul the more shady he becomes and in his way non-traditional and even heretical. Those who have suffered child abuse believe no one who ignored that phenomenon to the extent John Paul did in the face of evidence can be called a saint. But he anyway presents serious contradictions. On the one hand his cult of the Virgin was extreme (should not self-dedication like his Totus Tuus “only yours” be reserved for God not Mary?) while at Assisi in 1986 he virtually opened the door to some kind of new universalism when he prayed with leaders of a hundred different faiths and allowed such as a Buddha image over the tabernacle and various non-Christian rites to be performed in front of the altar.
Certainly things were not limited to the Assisi gathering but manifest amid the pontiff’s numerous travels. This Pope had the sign of Shiva painted on his forehead in India. He kissed and bowed towards the Koran in the presence of Muslim leaders which, all matters of doctrine apart, was felt to be outrageous to the suffering of Christian minorities in places such as Iraq. There was also woeful irony in the fact that this Pope, famed for his reconciling attitude to the Jews, should have venerated the Koran on of all days 14th May (in 1999), in short the birthday of the Jewish state which at least some Muslims would wish to see destroyed since on some readings of the Koran the Jews need to be annihilated in jihad at the time of the end. In Benin John Paul was a cheerful spectator at a witch doctor’s snake worshipping ceremony and in Togo he prayed alongside Animists. For things like this some Catholics denounced John Paul as an anti-Pope and apostate. Might he even have been preparing the way for the late Catholic Seeress, Jeane Dixon’s false prophet who will succeed to the last Pope and inaugurate a world faith through Rome?
Let’s not go into the controversies that still surround the story of John Paul’s finances and politics which last, if it had some positive features in relation to Poland and East European Communism, is itself not beyond criticism – he may have had inappropriate dealings with the CIA. I don’t know and don’t need to know or judge for present purposes. However, although I don’t personally lend it credence, I am aware that Latin America has been fascinated by some young woman claiming Jesus showed her various celebrities in hell including John Paul 11 whom she claims privately was anything but saintly. Again I can’t and won’t comment on what I don’t know, but this much can be known….
It was mentioned that on the day of the Cevo, accident the sun of the day was conjunct hell. It is hard to avoid the impression John Paul doesn’t release mayhem, if not hell in some way. For example, on Oct 21st 2012, the same day that a relic related to Jean Paul arrived in Lourdes, the town was seriously and rarely flooded. Then again in 2013 on June 18th, the day it was announced a second miracle certified John Paul’s sainthood, Lourdes was flooded once again.
Oddly enough for John Paul’s associations with chaos, the Vatican chart reveals asteroid JOHNPAUL at 29 Cancer in direct sextile (i.e opportunity aspect) to HELL at 28 Taurus. This pontiff therefore risks releasing mayhem in some fashion as, let us be frank, does Jupiter the religion planet itself which stands in the Vatican’s house of religion conjunct JP on the same degree. A chaos apt to be released, not least perhaps through precisely Lourdes of the floods?! It should not be forgotten that originally St Bernadette of Lourdes thought it was the devil rather than the Virgin had appeared to her there, and originally the French clergy were opposed to the whole false notion, as it seemed to them, of Immaculate Conception. It was essentially a papal overruling endorsed Bernadette’s highly dubious vision – for why it is dubious see notes to my poem Maryianity at http://bit.ly/17NTJeh
What I would agree about with the nonetheless probably delusionary young visionary who places John Paul in hell, is that God is “no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34). If someone including a Pope does not behave well they do not obtain divine approval or convey anybody any blessings (recall how John Paul was unable to exorcize a girl screaming blasphemies in the Vatican) even if they don’t finish up in precisely hell. It is not for believers to put any person of obvious known errors and failures upon a pedestal thereby distracting from the prayer and attention supposed to be directed upon God. (And if by chance John Paul were in hell, it would needless to say be the final irony and judgement-invoking sin for Christians to be making him the object of a cult!). The odd, so-called, “void of course”, weak position of JEANPAUL at the time of the Cevo accident bespeaks his odd relation to believers. Those celebrating him shouldn’t really be doing so as he is no presence to save and help them. Nor really is the Cevo image of Christ which is effectively an upside down one faced towards earth and not declaring anything like Christ’s victory through and amid suffering and its effect in a subsequently heaven borne direction.
A SERIOUS CALL TO CHANGE
Beyond even these negatives, those who erected the cross shouldn’t be saying or believing that it is any symbol of Italy and/or of its protection. I don’t write as someone against crucifixes and images per se, but the evident notion that the image just in and of itself is a kind of protective talisman is a subtle idolatry that should be rejected. If one persists with false beliefs God will answer according to one’s idols and permit the false visions that ensue (Ezek 14:4) but also remove such protection as may be hoped for from God within a fallen world. The collapsed crucifix is an event of a fallen world in which accidents occur. It may however also be an effect of the forces of evil like the winds that blew the life threatening storm on Galilee, and which in this case wish to overthrow the power of the cross. But whether that’s so or not, it could still be a sign of divine disapproval of John Paul, or at least a warning sign for a church to abandon the cover-ups and elements of creeping idolatry that John Paul’s reign saw too much of. It may be a bit more than even that and I rather suspect so.
I have had Italy much on my mind in recent months and it’s a reason I shall briefly be visiting there (no, not to Rome) while in Europe this year. Just as I wrote the quasi-prophetic Beyond Dover Beach,( http://bit.ly/1gLlckG) I suspect there is something to know and that I may be able to write on the ground concerning Italy. Anyway, I think it would be unwise for Catholics to dismiss as lightly as they have done that the present Pope is the last according to the long disputed prophecies of St Malachy. At the time of the recent suggestively symbolic accident, peaceful and fortunate Venus was moving away from the star of Christianity itself in Pisces. Things are ending and there are attitudes and beliefs that need to be abandoned.
. The hell asteroid is HELLA because originally all asteroids were recorded in feminine form hence Nelsonia and Washingtonia for Nelson and Washington
 The Christ asteroid is CHRISTA. As said above originally all asteroids were recorded in feminine form but empirically this asteroid does work for Christ issues as does ISA (the Arabic name of Jesus).
