The Queen’s Birthday and The Death of PRINCE, will forever be entwined. Remember PRINCE was sacrificed for the Queen’s jubilee. There is much about his Death that gives one to believe that he was an Illuminati Sacrifice. In light of current events and the number of people dying from the CORONA (CROWN)Virus, the spiritual synchronicity of the these entwined events in the middle of the current season of evil raises concerns.
2020 is a very important time to the elite. This will be a year that will change everything! We are well into the most important season of our lives. If you have not visited the article APRIL – MAY 2020 – A VERY CRUCIAL TIME… please take a look at it.

Being the Queen of England comes with more than a few perks, one of which is getting to celebrate your birthday twice a year. Queen Elizabeth was born on April 21, but the public marking of her birthday, known as Trooping the Colour, takes place during the summer, when the British weather’s more appropriate for a parade.
Normally, the Queen spends the actual day of her birth privately, but this year, fans of the royal family will have a window into her special day.
That’s because Elizabeth II’s 93rd birthday coincides with Easter this year. Every year on Easter Sunday, the Queen joins the rest of her family for services at Windsor Castle. While there, the British monarch will receive a bouquet of flowers from local children, who also attended the church service.
The Queen’s birthday will also be marked by gun salutes in central London. Per the royal family’s website, there will be “a 41 gun salute in Hyde Park, a 21 gun salute in Windsor Great Park and a 62 gun salute at the Tower of London.” (a total of 64)
Queen’s Birthday 2020
This year, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her 94th birthday on Saturday, June 13, 2020 with a party fit for a queen! Happy Birthday, Your Majesty!
On her official birthday, Her Majesty is joined by other members of the Royal Family with a public appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. The general public are also traditionally treated to a spectacular “Trooping the Colour” parade which moves between Buckingham Palace, The Mall and Horseguards’ Parade.
All about Queen Elizabeth II’s Birthday
Although she was actually born on April 21, the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II is celebrated each year in the UK on a weekend in June for purely practical reasons. The day usually presents more acceptable weather for a public party!
If you’re not in town on the big day, the festivities traditionally air live, all or in part on BBC One.
As well as in London and Windsor, events related to the Queen’s Birthday are scheduled throughout Great Britain, in New Zealand (first Monday in June), Australia (second Monday in June), and in Canada, (on the last weekend in May on Victoria Day) when schools are usually closed and bank holidays celebrate with a day off.

Queen’s birthday fun facts
• The first British monarch to celebrate their birthday other than his actual birth date was King Edward VII. Although born on November 9, his official birthday was marked throughout his reign in May or June when there was a greater likelihood of good weather for a public celebration.
• In the UK, the most important and watched event related to the day is the historic military ceremony known as Trooping the Colour – with a parade down The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, including a fly-past of military aircraft and gun salutes fired at noon at Hyde Park.
• Today, Australia is the only country in the world to celebrate the Queen’s Birthday not once, but TWICE. While most of the country observes the day on the second Monday in June, Western Australia celebrates the Queen’s birthday on the last Monday in September or the first Monday in October.

Are you wondering what the symbols mean?
Thanks to Martin Holzinger, Germany and Iril Kolle, Norway, here is the complete list.
First from left is the sign of the planet Jupiter. (“Keep your eyes on Jupiter such beauty in the sky…..”). There are two different dates for Maurice’s birthday – 17. or 19. December 1941. In every case he is Archer and Jupiter is the planet of the archers, – spreading positivity to them in right constellation.
This is the sign of Paracelsus, often used as medical symbol. Paracelsus was a doctor who pointed out the need of caring for natural life (own and other life-forms).
Then there i
s Buddha. The main message in Buddhism is the taking away of personal needs and wishes by meditation to eliminate the personality and reaching a stadium of freedom (freedom of rebirth). Maurice (and for some time, the whole or parts of the band) did and do meditation. A result of that is, that Maurice is able to deal with many of his masterpieces as they would not be important, something what has been done and now it is ready. So he ever was free for experiments and new ways of music.
From Iril Kolle in Norway I got the following:
1) – Mostly known is the Bird Phoenix (from the ashes….) “The phoenix is a mythical bird that represents immortality or the rebirth of hope. It was supposed to be a beautiful, purple-red bird fabled to live 500-600 years in Arabia. It arose from the ashes of a funeral pyre to live through another lifetime” ..and .. “The phoenix just before its death sang a last song and it was then placed upon a funeral pyre. The pyre was made from aromatic herbs and exposed to the sun. The fire was not lit by human hands but by the power of the sun’s energy. When the fire settled amongst the ashes a small worm was born. From this the new phoenix would rise anew reborn”.
2) – The bird in general as a symbol / mythological creature: – “The bird is an animal almost universally exalted and accepted as symbolically being associated with the soul, as a messenger of the gods, a carriers of souls, an oracle or seen to possess the spirit of loved ones whilst also being a symbol of good or evil. The Ancient Greeks actually developed a science from the study of birds and their activities called ‘Ornithomancy’ and since then, birds have continued to feature heavily in folklore across the world even in the 20th-century imagination. It is no surprise that the modern Western super hero ‘Superman’ has the special ability to fly and is also given a name that indicates supreme powers. Perhaps this is because man has long wanted to be able to fly. Take the story of ‘Icarus’ as just one such further example.”
3) Icarus: “In Greek mythology Icarus was trapped on an island inside the labyrinth. Also within the labyrinth lived the Minotaur, a beast which was half man-half bull. Icarus eventaully escaped by making himself a set of wings from feathers that had fallen into the maze, but poor Icarus flew too close to the sun and the wax that held the feathers in place melted, and Icarus plunged into the sea.”
4) It COULD also be a BENNU or a BA, from Egyptian mythology: The Bennu bird was an imaginary bird resembling a heron. It had a two long feathers on the crest of it’s head and was often crowned with the Atef crown of Osiris (the White Crown with two ostrich plumes on either side) or with the disk of the sun. Meaning: The Bennu was the sacred bird of Heliopolis. Bennu probably derives from the word weben, meaning “rise” or “shine.” The Bennu was associated with the sun and represented the Ba or soul of the sun god, Re. In the Late Period, the hieroglyph of the bird was used to represent this deity directly. As a symbol of the rising and setting sun, the Bennu was also the lord of the royal jubilee.
5) The goose: The goose is a bird with an ancient mythology and a mixture of symbolism. It was a sacred bird in Rome’s temple of Juno. The snow goose is also associated with Boreas, the North Wind in Greek mythology. The snow goose is also the totem for the winter solstice in the Native American medicine wheel.Most people have heard of the legendary Mother Goose whose stories and rhymes were designed to quiet children. Myths, fairy tales, and other stories capture the imagination of children and adults alike. The goose is thus a totem reflecting a stimulation of the childhood thrill and belief in stories and legendary places. The story(s) we most loved in childhood often a reflect the life quest we have come to take upon us in this lifetime.
My guess would be Phoenix or Icarus, since both includes wind and fire.
|This is the caracter “Ankh”, the old Egyptian symbol of life. For Maurice, Egypt was the place where it all started and it all will end, best shown on the cover of Raise! Iril Kolle in Norway says:
PS: There seems to be some disagreement when it comes to the Ankh symbol (read “life”);
1) It doesn’t just mean life but resurrection, because the Ankh is put together by a T-shaped cross and death, and that this is supposed to symbolize re-incarnation and is “the key to the gates of life and death”.
2) Others mean the symbol is put together by the sun and that the “T” is the horizon over the River Nile. An early version is supposed to symbolize both sunrise and sunset.
3) Eternal Life, and when it’s shown in the hands of royal people it means “the gift of eternal life”.
4) The key to the River Nile + the union between Isis and Osiris
5) Life AND immortality
6) Life AND man and woman
7) Holy matrimony between Gods/Goddesses
8) Different combinations of the aboveThe Hexagram symbol which is (also) the star of the jewish people has many more meanings. Fundamental it is a Hexagram. In the Nsibidi script of West Africa, the symbol meant ardent love. Maybe Maurice knew this. All in all it is a very old mystic symbol in many cultures and religions with a lot of spiritual meanings.The one beside the star should be the candlestick of the Jewish religion. I do not know what it means, but in the music of EWF there are always songs about fire and sparkles, so light has a big meaning. The eighth symbol is called Eye Of Horus. Horus was an old Egyptian sun God with the head shaped like a falcon. It’s found frequently in Egyptian art. Also known as Egyptian Eye or Psychic Eye.The statue of Shakespeare as symbol for the power of words and intellectuality.
The symbol of all Christians.
Then there is Shiva, God of the Hindus. Shiva is the Dancing God, his message is “Everything in this universe is a part of the big dance”. Last years physics experiments have somehow the same result. Nobody in our days can say, that there are separated parts in this universe. The actual point of view for this cosmos is, that everything is somehow connected with everything and that everything moves. Forget the protons and electrons, forget the planets and solar systems, they all are only aspects of one and the same thing which is the “Eternal Dance”.
This is the well known Kalimba, an African thumb piano. The kalimba is clearly close to Maurice White’s heart, he introduced it to millions of listeners by making it a centerpiece of Earth, Wind & Fire’s spectacular concerts.
“Maurice came up with the whole concept for the artwork. I think it really reflected our view of the world. The globalization of the world, the things that are happening today, and what we see all over the world with wars and other things. We have always been conscious of what our world view has been so our album covers have always reflected that. Obviously we tried to communicate that through our music too but the covers always gave us a visual aspect too.” – EWF Bass player Verdine WhiteWhite used the elements of his astrological sign Sagittarius to name the group. Sagittarius has a primary elemental quality of Fire and seasonal qualities of Earth and Air (no water). He also drew from a wide variety of religious, spiritual and Afrikan Kemitic symbols to form the group’s imagery. The albums Spirit, All n All and I AM, in addition to the use of dynamic visual Afrikan Kemitic poses, pyramids and structures, are interesting due to the titles. All N’ All is a derivative term used by some Muslims that means ‘Allah’ and the album title I AM was the manner in which God identified Himself to Moses in the Old Testament (I AM that I AM).
Album – Faces (1980)
The album cover art for Faces and Raise! continue with Afrikan Kemitic motifs (pyramids and stone structures). Raise! has futuristic imagery blended with the female stone structure. We are looking at the past and future at the same time.
Album – Powerlight (1983) Album – Electric Universe (1983)
The albums Powerlight and Electric Universe can see the use of ancient Chakra imagery and colours.
Single – Fantasy (1978)
There are some Christian Evangelical groups that believe that EWF promoted the occult and even satanism! This is due to their aversion, fear ignorance and hatred toward Afrikan or Eastern teachings. The cover art for the Fantasy single has several symbols that are rich in esoteric meaning, Asian and Afrikan symbolism. (No, its because they are promoting OCCULT, SATANIC philosophies, practices and symbology)
From left to right: 1) Sign of the planet Jupiter 2) Symbol of Paracelsus, which was derived from ancient Kemit 3) Buddha 4) The Phoenix – symbol of immortality, rebirth and hope 5) the Afrikan Kemitic Ankh. The full spread with more spiritual, religious symbols is below.
Single Sunday Morning (1993) Album – Millennium (1993)
Many of the EWF album covers since the album All N All in 1977 were executed by Japanese artist Shusei Nagaoka.
Compilation album -The Eternal Dance (1992)
The Eternal Dance and the album In the Name of Love see a return to ancient/futuristic Afrikan Kemitic imagery. The beautifully illustrated The Eternal Dance art strongly alludes to the divine nature and qualities of the Black man and woman.
Greatest Hits album (1998) Album – The Promise (2003)
Album – Illumination (2005) Album – Now, Then & Forever (2013)
EWF continues to record and, as can be seen in their latest release Now, Then & Forever, continue to imbue their album covers with the rich visual symbolism and spirituality that has become synonymous with their legacy.
The Serpentine Fire is a yoga concept, and it gets pretty deep. The song was written by group members Verdine and Maurice White, who are very spiritual and focused on positive lifestyle choices – Maurice once said he was “a universal being trying to accomplish as many things as I can in this cosmic trip.”
In simple terms, they describe the Serpentine Fire as your creative energy – the force that guides you and makes you unique (what Steven Tyler called his “Mama Kin“). The deeper explanation comes from Kundalini yoga, where spinal awareness can be achieved by envisioning the body as a serpent. Secretions in the spine can be stimulated to travel from the sex organs to the brain, creating vitality throughout the body – the Serpentine Fire.
Here’s how Maurice described it: “The Kundalini principle has to do with the fluid in the spine. After 29 days, if used properly, it can be converted into a higher consciousness of energy, which means you can step up or step down, it’s your choice. It’s called a serpent, because if you tipped the spine out of the body and looked at it, it would look like a serpent – and the fluid is the fire in the spine.” He adds, “Nobody knows what I’m talking about, but a lot of kids go out and look it up and immediately it expands their consciousness.”
This was a huge hit on the R&B charts, where it stayed at #1 for seven weeks. Despite Earth, Wind & Fire’s crossover success with “Shining Star” and “Sing A Song,” “Serpentine Fire” stalled at #13 on the Hot 100 and their following single “Fantasy” made just #32. They quickly regained their pop groove with their cover of “Got To Get You Into My Life,” which started a run of five Top 10 pop hits for the band.
Reginald “Sonny” Burke is a credited songwriter on this track along with Mau
