You know, some days it pays to pay attention to History more than others.
Just recently, America’s 45th president decided to directly profiteer from his Office, by unilaterally moving the G7 conference to one of his personally owned properties.
Mark Twain is known for saying that “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes!”
Check out this story below. It attests to the wildly familiar themes we’re experiencing at this time, only more intense, because the cosmic circumstances are even more powerfully transformative than they were back when Martin Luther incited the Protestant Reformation.
Challenging a Profiteering Pontiff
Once upon a time in History…
Martin Luther, a German professor of theology, composer, Catholic priest and monk, seems to have played the part of the perspicacious little boy in the Emperor’s New Clothes. The Emperor in said fable was being played in real life by Pope Leo X, who remains infamous for his abuse of indulgences. An indulgence, in Catholicism, was the waiving of a penance (the time and actions required to repent from a sin) in exchange for something else. Pope Leo X began offering indulgences to anybody who donated certain amounts of money to the Church. Bless him.
Interestingly, 1518 was the last time that Saturn and Pluto came into perfect alignment, as viewed from here on Earth, in that heavy hitter sign of Capricorn, same as we will be experiencing around January 12, 2020, but are feeling already to a large degree because they move so slowly.
On a presumably cloudy, cold Halloween in 1517, (Capricorn is noted for damp, overcast, cooler weather than normal) Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg. Church authorities denied their corruption, forcing Martin Luther into the position of defending what he believed to be a more accurate kind of Christianity over the more ritualized and authoritarian Catholic Church at that time. He ended up getting kicked out and starting the now famous Protestant Reformation.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
