Struth the Bloody Truth

Clarion Rating: 3 out of 5

For those ready to move forward into the Age of Aquarius, the author holds out the ancient practice of astrology as a proven, trustworthy guide.

In Struth the Bloody Truth, Iarn Pernell declares that astrology works and can be proven. Standing at the cusp of the Age of Aquarius, Pernell issues a call for humanity to cast aside the fear-based thought patterns and beliefs of the Piscean Age and turn to science for explanations of the universe.

The need to make sense of a painful life event first brought Pernell to astrology, and thirty years of study and personal experience, as well as the testimonies of hundreds of clients he has seen as an astrologer, have convinced him of its reliability. Pernell asks that his book be approached with logic, reason, a scientific mindset, and openness to the “possibility of a total shift” in consciousness.

Pernell honors Piscean Age master Jesus for advocating compassion and a willingness to sacrifice for the greater good, among many other positive teachings, but blames the increasing control over humanity exerted by religion for thwarting humankind’s evolutionary urge. To bolster his argument, he cites the cases of Galileo and Copernicus, the murderous violence of the Inquisition, the many wars of conquest supported by religion, and the virus-like programming that, even today, keeps people enslaved to senseless rules and afraid to think for themselves for fear of being cast into hellfire.

Pernell writes with fervor and logic about the arrival of the astrological Age of Aquarius and the changes it portends for humanity: increased self-awareness and the development of higher consciousness, the turning away from “blind acceptance of [the] un-provable” and the manner in which science is gaining ascendancy over senseless beliefs created to manipulate and control the masses, and the growing desire of people to drop the illusion that “more” is better and to live simple lives in harmony with nature. He draws upon history, science, and personal experience to support his claim that astrology is a reliable guide to self-knowledge and to crafting a life that works.

Written in colloquial English spiced up with a number of expletives and a touch of humor, the text presents a number of errors in grammar, syntax, punctuation, and spelling, as well as several misused words. Discussions can achieve heights of logic and clarity as well as descend to an aggressive tone. And though he writes that he does not wish to give offense, Pernell describes several disturbing incidents from his life in which his behavior was offensive, justifying his actions as offering karmic lessons to all involved.

Pernell’s enthusiasm for astrology comes through boldly in Struth the Bloody Truth, as does his heralding of a new age that offers new opportunities for human evolution. “Always remember that your life is a perfect reflection of what you need to know about you,” he writes, with the strong warning that those who hold on to what is dying in their lives will find the coming inevitable changes devastating.

For those ready to move forward into the Age of Aquarius, the author holds out the ancient practice of astrology as a proven, trustworthy guide.
