Malala Yousafzai: Modern Day Saint & Purveyor of Peace
Part III: Exceeding Fate’s Burdens and Blessings
By: Brad Kronen
“Blessed are the Peace Makers, for they will be called Children of God.” – Matthew 5:9
Being a Peace Maker is no easy job.
Within any time frame of Man’s History, Peace Makers have borne immense mantles of responsibility which, to the rest of us, appear to transcend the existential condition of merely being human.
However as this series has shown, those who are instrumental in the process of making Peace seem to be almost “pre-destined” to undertake such seemingly super-human tasks, given the significantly high correlation of specific astrological traits commonly shared amongst those who have been bestowed The Nobel Peace Prize from times past to the present day.
As observed in Part II, a vast majority of the world’s best known winners of the Nobel Peace Prize have been born with exceptionally heavy concentration of planets placed within the Cardinal signs of either Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn.
The co-recipients of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize are no exception to this astrological rule.
Like the vast majority of those revered individuals who have won before them, the winners of 2014’s Nobel Peace Prize bear the same cosmic markings of the globally influencing Peace Maker – Malala Yousafzai being born with the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in the Justice loving sign of Libra, and with Kailash Satyarthi entering this plane of existence when the Sun was in Capricorn and the Moon in the Freedom fighting sign of Aries.
But that’s not Nobel all, folks!
Even more cosmically confounding, not only does Malala Yousafzai’s astrological sense of self posses those very same uncommon attributes as her fellow Peace Prize Winners, her astrological foundation exceeds them.
Malala Yousafzai was born a “Triple” Cardinal personality.
Said in a different, but just as equally special esoteric way, at the time of Ms. Yousafzai’s birth, the three main astrological components which comprise her overall sense of “self” were each placed in Cardinal signs, with the Moon being positioned in the sign of Libra, along with both the Sun and the Horizon, or “Rising Sign” placed in the sign of Cancer.
Referring to all things “Cardinal” like, to directly quote what was previously discussed in Part II regarding the essence of the astrological quality that optimally functions in anything brand spanking new:
“There are three astrological “qualities” – Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. The Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, mark those particular times of year when each of the Four Seasons of Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall begin. Since they take place in synch with the advent of a new Season, the Cardinal signs function best when things are perceived to be original, fresh, and never before tried.”
Part II of this series also specified that the exceptionally high number of Nobel Prize Laureates being born as Double Cardinal personalities makes sense both cosmically and practically, given the actions deserving of such noteworthy merit are almost always never before experienced, and/or were notable firsts of their kind.
It must be emphasized how statistically infrequent it is for a person to enter this plane of existence as a “double Cardinal”. Even with that said, it would appear as if The Universe is inherently grooming Ms. Yousafzai to be the living embodiment of Cardinal energy, when realizing how even more rare of an astrological event it is for a person to be born with a 3 fold concentration of any of the three astrological qualities of Fixed, Mutable, and of course, Cardinal.
Despite her incredibly young age, Malala Yousafzai’s actions have grabbed the attentions of most of the modern world by being strikingly unique in a most specifically Cardinal kind of way.
With the global concept of girls’ education being her driving passion, at the ripe old age of 17, Ms. Yousafzai’s life has already begun to set itself apart from the rest of today’s global masses by being marked with a series of “firsts”:
– The first Pakistani child to report with their own blog series on the BBC. (Your author himself has been listening to Malala’s blogs when she first began reporting them internationally at the age of 11.)
– The first Pakistani girl to vocally provide public opposition as an individual against the restrictive policies and regulations imposed by the Taliban.
– Repeat the aforementioned “first” followed by the words “and survived”.
And lest we not forget Malala Yousafzai is the first citizen from her native Pakistan to have been bestowed a Nobel Peace Prize, along with the Nobel fact this most remarkable of teenagers bears the unique distinction of being the youngest person to ever receive this most prestigious of global accolades, as well.
The Lunar Peace Maker
“If you go anywhere, even paradise, you will miss your home.” – Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Cancerian
In Astrology, Earth’s only satellite shares equal billing with the mighty Sun, itself, and wields far more influence over the residents of this particular planet than any of the other planetary residents of our Solar System.
The Astrological Moon covers a lot of Life’s territories. It rules over the things that personally matter to us most. Things held closest and dear to our hearts, but wouldn’t necessarily be obvious to the outside world, such as ties held with our families, parents (especially dear old Mom), and our attachments to our homes, neighborhoods, even our sense of Patriotism.
The Moon also oversees the factors which have contributed to the formation of who we are today for better or worse, such as one’s Past, one’s History, even one’s ancestral lineage or Heritage.
Lastly, the brightest heavenly body in the evening sky astrologically represents one’s feminine energies, regardless of gender, and is associated with anything keenly focused on girls, women, and motherhood.
As mentioned in Part I, the flag of Malala Yousafzai’s native country of Pakistan bear the symbols of a Star and interestingly enough, a Crescent Moon, which hearken back to a Past time when most of the Islamic World was united beneath the vast domain of the Ottoman Empire.
For the Moon ruled Cancerian, issues regarding their basic security are of the utmost importance. Malala Yousafzai’s problems all began at home, quite literally, when Taliban forces invaded her hometown in the Swat Valley and proceeded to dictate that the outlets of education for girls would be greatly restricted and eventually abolished altogether.
The path of this particular Peace Maker was foundationally laid at the earliest source of her Past and Home, when an extremely frustrated Pakistani schoolgirl began to fiercely defend her core right to be educated by telling all the world about it.
Malala’s fight now has expanded to champion the educational rights of young girls across the globe, especially those who hold little to no power to defend themselves.
Past. Home. Girls. – All Cancerian key words.
A Triple Cardinal “First”
Malala Yousafzai’s “Sweet Seventeen” was anything but typical this year. Instead of hosting a dance party or going on an extended shopping spree, this remarkable girl spent her 17th birthday traveling to Nigeria, where last April over 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the group, Boko Haram, whose aim is to eradicate Western education, especially for girls.
From a Cardinal signed dynamic, Malala’s Nigerian trip achieved a most momentous of “Firsts”. After meeting with the parents of the missing school girls, the Triple Cardinal signed teenager then officially met with Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan, who proceeded to publicly announce he would be meeting with the missing girls’ parents….for the first time since their abduction.
A Sign of Peace to Possibly Come
This year’s Nobel Peace Prize is atypical by having two co-recipients, both being international champions for the rights of children – Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi.
Every sign of the Zodiac has its polar opposite. Cancer’s polar opposite sign is the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. In astrological theory, joining together the energies of polar opposite signs creates an atmosphere of peaceful union when considering the overall perspective of things has expanded by becoming more holistically well-rounded.
Ms. Yousafzai’s and Mr. Satyarthi’s personal backgrounds are as opposingly different as can be with her being a Muslim from Pakistan and him being a Hindu from India.
Both Peace Makers come from countries long known to be in warring opposition of each other, however both of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Winners are also astrological polar opposites of each other – to the exact astrological degree with her Cancerian birth of July 12 and his Capricorn birth of January 11th.
To quote the Triple Cardinal signed teenager from a press conference after first being told she had won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize:
“This is not the end of this campaign which I have started, this is really the beginning.”
With this year’s most acclaimed Peace Makers being two modern day saints born beneath polar opposite signs, perhaps the Heavens are informing us a new Era of Peace might soon enough begin as well.
