The Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian-West selfie ‘incident’ is reminiscent of biblical era accounts of women taking on the role of emissaries between feuding Kings, amidst threats of pillaging and destruction – at the proclamation of Kings or men in authority. For biblical era references, think: Esther and other heroines.
It’s no shocker to see these two women (Kim and Amber) taking valiant strides to keep the peace between their feuding (a) husband and ex-husband: Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, as well as (b) feuding exes Kanye West and Amber Rose.
The million dollar question is why? Could the answer be in the stars?
Here my Astro-Take™ on this:
Kim’s birthday: October 21, 1980
Amber’s birthday: October 21, 1983
Notice any similarities? Exactly! Both women are Libra zodiac signs, born on the same date – which probably explained Kanye’s attraction to Amber (once upon a time) and his attraction to Kim (who’s now his wife).
Libra is the zodiac’s diplomat and ambassador This is a sign that seeks a peaceful, harmonious, and civil existence with all. A preference for peace over conflict is one of their special skills. Learn more about Libra.
Note: Amber Rose was a Muse to Kanye West, before he married Kim Kardashian.
About Muses: Fashion designers and creative geniuses the world over, have been known to work with Muses. A Muse is a person, place or thing that evokes and inspires great creativity in creative individuals. Examples include models and supermodels of famous designers and design houses.
For regular people, think about the flash of inspiration (and heart palpitations) that quickly flash across one’s mind, at the thought of the amazing outfit combinations possible, when you stumble upon the right pair of shoes! Now THAT’s your Muse – albeit a fleeting one.
For Kanye West (a Gemini), once upon a time, it was Amber Rose.
Who can forget the epic Twitter feud between rappers Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa – or to put it more accurately, Kanye’s bullet-pointed ‘ethering’ i.e. verbal onslaught (details below) of Wiz Khalifah (Amber Rose’s ex-husband) whom he thought had made disparaging remarks about his wife, Kim Kardashian West?
Who can forget Amber Rose’s ‘zinger’ to Kanye’s references to her past as a stripper?
Anti slut-shaming activist and feminist, Amber Rose calmly responded, “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a**hole anymore?”

Kanye’s response below? A clarification of any predilections whatsoever.
I’m not into that kind of shit… I like pictures and videos Me and my wife got the kind of love that can turn exes into best friends

Back to Kim and Amber…
The point is, women have been involved in peacemaking and peace keeping efforts for centuries. Today, we come full circle from biblical era emissaries to modern day counterparts.
*The Urban dictionary define ‘ether’ as, “…to humiliate someone verbally, or to “dis them”, but to a greater extent. It ends all “insult-fests.”
