A New Era Needs A New Symbol...

One of the top articles last year was the analysis of  Marilyn Manson´s latest tats and their origin.

Today I discovered a new symbol added to his collection of swastika-inspired imagery, not necessarily related to the Nazi paraphernalia and it´s exactly this combination of four M´s apparently spinning clockwise.

Four M´s symbol.

04/11/2011 - Marilyn Manson - "Scream 4" Los Angeles Premiere showing
off his latest ink.



A very interesting theory, besides bearing obvious similarities with the actual swastika is the letter M. Letters in a way can also act as symbols and regarding numerology it is related to the number 4 and means spirituality and transformation. People who also bear this name are incredibly self confident and likely to achieve success. It is also a letter that is somewhat of a workaholic. A negative aspect of the M is that it can be hasty and become easily angry.

Another 4 is found on the Major Arcana, The Emperor, which is related to an incredible amount of strength due to its constant appearance in nature; four seasons, four elements, four walls, etc.

Also compare the four corners of the throne

Another surprising hint? This year, 2011 broken into numbers goes something like this:

2 + 0 + 1 + 1= 22

2 + 2 = 4

The Emperor is very adequate for this era since it communicates stability, protection, authority, leadership, strategies, power.

More coincidences? Divide Manson´s actual birthday in numerology: January 15th, 1969 or,

01 05 1969

1 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 9 =  31

3 + 1 = 4

Hopefully we will see more of this new untitled symbol soon, probably even as part of the album artwork. You can help to promote this as many times as you like!
