Track Listing Inspiration
Saturn, representing a coming of age and challenges speaks to a memory Marcus uncovered with Umbereen during their creative writing process where Marcus would hide in the closet witnessing abuse and how he used the light of the world to get beyond it.
"Saturn was that moment with my father...and running away from the abuse"
The red hot storm in Jupiter represents Marcus's experiences with his skin condition vitiligo and his ability to overcome what could be perceived as obstacle by essentially accepting and loving himself.
"Saturn represents being able to face my fears and breaking through and shedding a layer of my old skin in order to love and accept my new"
Pluto being the planet of change represents a new turn for Marcus where he embarked on a spiritual and grounding journey, understanding that it was his pain and adversities that led him to want to inspire and help the world.
"Pluto is an understanding of the power of change and growth"
Venus as the universal symbol of love speaks to the ultimate gift and understanding that love is the true guiding light and force in Marcus's life that carried him through. It is a reflection on his family and his ability to break the cycle of abuse moving forward.
"Venus, is the understanding and accepting of how to Love myself before others"
In the Roman era, Mars depicted with a spear. This planet depicts how Marcus overcame huge obstacles and fought through situations and emotions which could have ended it all.
"In Mars, it shows how I'm asking life for another chance and apologizing for being late"
