Here is an horary chart cast of the arrival of news of his death:

Curiously, the question arrived at culmination of a full moon, one with an interesting pattern.
Chiron opposed the 8th (Sun on Asc), and Jupiter opposed Catastrophe. Pluto is near the 4th house cusp (graves, final resting places), and the ruler of the 8th (Venus) is near Pluto. Venus is also semi-square Chiron in this chart. This Venus & Jupiter activity indicates that someone (maybe several someone’s) likely benefitted from Aaron’s death.
Uranus (Prometheus) has set. Metaphorically, Prometheus is the bringer of light (insight, knowledge, genius), and he has now set (moved below ground). Opinions may vary, but I suspect that we are all worse off for this loss. The Founders of the United States were people like Aaron, and that kind of courage is needed to protect the rights of us all.
