Some time over a decade ago, and before I started this blog, I discovered the work of Jonathon Cainer.  He was a standard “Sun sign” style newspaper astrologer in the UK, but he was also much more than that.  His daily entries had a remarkable quality to them that I describe as “philosophical.”  While others, myself included, would focus in on the details of what, say, a Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun type full moon had to say, Cainer would zoom out and speak in lyrical words of poetry about the bigger picture of such a turn of events.

He was, in a word, inspiring.

So, I was disappointed to discover this morning, May 19th, that he had passed away on May 2nd of this year, 2016.  No chance now of him reading that email that I kept thinking about sending him for years but then not sending because I wanted to remain anonymous.  No chance of somehow showing up in England and having a chance encounter where I might speak to him for a moment.  The windows are closed, and the best I can do is an analysis of his birth and death charts (based on available data) in his memory.

His birth chart is remarkable, having both a Stretched Pentagram and a Diamond in it.  These tend to be rather rare, and he had both of them.  We show the birth chart for the Stretched Pentagram first:

Cainer (Birth, Stretched Pentagram)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

It is the kind of chart, from the perspective of patterns, that is nothing short of amazing.  Here is the birth chart, again, with the Diamond highlighted:

Cainer (Birth, Diamond, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Much of the Diamond and Stretched Pentagram overlap.  The evening of Winter’s Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World as We Know It”) had a Diamond in it, and while 2012 came and went without the end of the world, we can say that this period of years, marked by the Uranus / Pluto squares (or, as Cainer called it: “the bell tolls seven times”) has been remarkable in changes and upheaval (“Arab Spring,” “Black Lives Matter,” the dominance of “smart phones” in our collective lives, the candidacy of Donald Trump for President, etc.)

Cainer had other patterns also.  He had a “Square Key” which is really two interlocked “Huber Learning Triangles.”  These tell us what his biography said: he worked through some rather intense “karma” to reach the point he did in life.  Life was not particularly easy for him in the beginning, and arguably it was probably fairly tough even after he had acquired fortune and fame.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

Cainer (Birth, Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Just in case that was not enough, he also had a “Double Yod Key” (DYK).  This tells us he was face with many tough decisions, the kind where you always look back and wonder “what if I had taken the other path”?  Filtered for DYK:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yod Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The DYK is hard to see because it is built into his other patterns.  But, if we filter for yods, we find three of them, and they are a bit more obvious:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yods)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is NOT an “easy” life.  It is spent worrying about “what if” I had done something else.  But Cainer was also born with the ability to accomplish much, and he did.

Cainer (Birth, Rosetta, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we see a Rosetta in the birth chart.  We interpret this as “unstable alliances,” and from what we know this was true as well.  He moved back and forth between newspapers as shifting alliances pushed him to do just that.

If we filter for a Grand Cross we do not find one, but if we filter for T-Squares, then a slightly “loose” Grand Cross is obviously present (and a source of tremendous energy and the ability to “get things done”):

Cainer (Birth, T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A 5th Harmonic filter shows a triangular pattern (two quintiles and a biquintile) involving Mars, Pallas, and Venus:

Cainer (Birth, 5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We might add here that his highly activated Neptune near Midheaven is an indicator of psychic abilities.  It can also indicate alcohol or drug problems or some kind of involvement (he did manage a bar at one point).  We suspect that he felt many people “pulling” on him.  (Neptune can be the savior / martyr complex as well.)

Seventh harmonic in the birth chart also contains a triangular pattern and is sufficiently activated to indicate, again, these “karmic” issues to work through:

Cainer (Birth, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Vesta/Hygeia, Neptune, and Sun compose the triangular pattern and indicate, again, both psychic abilities and physical illness as well.  (We suspect that long term / chronic illness may have plagued him but that he did not disclose it publicly.)

Now to the death chart.  A single pattern dominates: a hard rectangle!

Cainer (Death, Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One other pattern is present in the death chart: a Kite (if you are willing to use North / South lunar nodes):

Cainer (Death, Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the remainder of the kite is formed by Mercury and Pluto, both retrograde.  It is almost as if the cosmic said “OK we will give you a little more time to accomplish something, and then it is time to go.”  We may never know what that “something” was because it likely dealt with family and financial matters.  But he had received a reprieve of some kind from what was likely a “close call” of some kind earlier.  (Again, we will likely never be able to confirm or deny this.)  This kite also says that someone, somehow, greatly benefited from his death!  (What could that mean?)

Seventh Harmonic is also interesting:

Cainer (Death, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars, Astraea, and Sun are involved in a triangular 7th harmonic pattern (made of a TriSeptile and two BiSeptiles).  We wonder if some kind of legal issues were about to emerge at the time of his death.  (Again, we would bet that this is something private despite 2 out of 3 planets being above ground.)

Finally, we present the bi-wheel without patterns or much analysis except to note that his second Saturn return was upon him (and the one for the author of this blog is not too far away either).  Saturn returns often “take us home,” and that is what happened for him.

Cainer BiWheel

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have little more to add to this analysis, especially since we prefer our readers dig into it for themselves.  But, he was a giant in the field, and he will be missed.  And, as an aside, my own coming Saturn return leaves me rather “nervous.”

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

We have been analyzing disasters and shootings less lately in favor of forecasts and similar analysis.  Previously, we have produced a chart analysis for Adam Lanza, the West, TX Fertilizer plant explosion, the Orbital Sciences Antares Rocket explosion, the Philadelphia Amtrak wreck, the Marysville school shootings, and the Boston Marathon bombing.  That said, we will provide a chart and preliminary analysis of the San Bernardino shootings on December 2, 2015.  We note, also, that this attack comes only a few weeks after the massacre of 130 people in Paris by ISIS based terrorists.

Click here for our Calendar Page for Wednesday, December 2nd.  The event occurred two days before perfection of Mercury square Jupiter, an amplifier of either good will or bad intent.  For practical purposes, that aspect applies here.  The event also occurred four days before perfection of Mars square Pluto, perhaps the most dangerous of all aspects, and, again, for practical purposes that aspect applies here.  Saturn square Neptune, a very slow moving aspect that governs weeks and months, perfected for the first time (of three) on November 26th.  Again, that is so close (Saturn has a 28 year orbit; Neptune a 160 year orbit), that it applies here.  All of this, together, is a bit tough.

We present the chart, based on the reported time of 10:59 AM PST and filtered for T-Squares:

2015-12-02 San Bernardino Shootings (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We count ten squares and four oppositions in that chart.  Frankly, that seems rather high.  But we think that the critically important events occurred earlier in the day, during this window:

Solar Fire Gold  Dec 4 2015
Electional Search Results
Criteria:  FIND  (Chart contains Thor’s Hammer)
Search From: Dec 2 2015  0:00 am
Search To:   Dec 2 2015  11:59:59 pm
Status:      Finished – 1 matches
Enters   Dec 2 2015 1:46:53 am (CST +6:00)
Leaves Dec 2 2015 6:17:32 am (CST +6:00)
We think that the critical events occurred in this window, that this was when the decisions were made that would mean “this was the day” that they had planned for.  And, within that window, we will hazard a guess that the critical turning point occurred at, or near, the entry of the Moon in to Virgo.  That yields this particular Thor’s Hammer chart:
2015-12-02 San Bernardino (Moon enters Virgo + TH)
[Click Image to Enlarge]
Note that (1) Moon had recently perfected a conjunction to Astraea (issues of justice), (2) Moon moved into Earth (Earth tends to lack compassion, refer to Adam Lanza chart as a comparison) and (3) we have a Thor’s Hammer (again, compare the Adam Lanza natal chart) that activates (a) Uranus and (b) Pluto (that pesky Uranus / Pluto square, again, that we keep talking about).  Also noteworthy: (1) Mars has just risen (and is in 12th house of religion (and delusions) and (2) Uranus (explosions, among other things) is setting.

Since this is a preliminary analysis, we will hold any further commentary until more information is available.  (Particularly, we would like birth information for the shooters, should that ever become available.)  For an alternative analysis, posted on Astrotheme, click here.  Another analysis is located here.  Astrology Weekly has a discussion located here.

We also recommend reviewing the surrounding aspects this month, available by clicking on this link for an Excel chart of Sunout aspects.  And, for an overview of patterns in November and December 2015, click this link.  If you are interested in Longer Term Forecasts (outer planets or “generational planets”), click here.

 

Lamar Odom hospitalized

Anthony Louis - Astrology & Tarot Blog

According to ESPN:

“Former NBA and reality TV star Lamar Odom was hospitalized Tuesday after he was found unconscious…  authorities were called at about 3:15 p.m. to Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, about 70 miles outside of Las Vegas, for a report of an unresponsive man needing an ambulance.”

Are there indications in his birth chart of these events?

Lamar Odom was born in NYC on November 6, 1979, time unknown.  I cast a sunrise chart with Placidus houses to get a sense of his natal chart and placed the transits for time time the authorities were called to attend to him in Nevada on Tuesday, October 15, 2015:

Ambulance called (outside) to attend to unconscious Lamar Odom (inside whee natal chart, sunrise, time unknown). Ambulance called (outside) to attend to unconscious Lamar Odom (inside whee natal chart, sunrise, time unknown).

Striking in this chart is the transiting Sun exactly conjunct his natal Pluto which lies opposite transiting Uranus along the cusps of the Placidus…

Bill Clinton Solar Return 2015

Here is the SR Chart for former President Bill Clinton, filtered for Thor’s Hammer patterns (which seem prevalent in his chart).  We suspect that this will be a year of conflict for him, and, if not conflict, then he will be very “busy.”  (Not surprising given that his wife has announced a Presidential bid.)

Here is the chart:

Bill Clinton 2015 SR (Thor's Hammers)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This chart incorporates an existing T-Square that was part of a Grand Cross on the previous day.  In addition to a powerful Sun/Saturn square, we note that Vesta issues (traditions, and sometimes kinky sex) are particularly important in this set of patterns in this particular Solar Return.  We note, also, a powerful Focused Yod occurs on this date. and others have noted the Venus/Uranus Trine on this day.

A bit more about Vesta:

Astrological Patterns for Hillary Rodham Clinton

Astrological Patterns for Hillary Rodham Clinton: A Natal Chart Analysis

First, let me state my position: I am neither particularly a HRC fan or detractor.  I agree with her on some issues (diplomacy) and (vehemently) disagree with her on other issues (gun control).  So, as much as possible, I will make this a neutral analysis and try to be fair.  (AND I think I am capable of doing that.)

This is a complex chart with many patterns, something this is not true of all birth charts.  We list the patterns in groups:

1.  Hele patterns (multiple): Hillary tends to polarize people into strong allegiances that last over time

2. Rosetta patterns (multiple): Hillary also forms many temporary allegiances that can be characterized as treacherous at times (both for and against her)

3. Mystic Rectangle: Perhaps her defining pattern.  It highlights (1) just how much Bill’s betrayal (the Lewinsky scandal) bothered her and (2) her ongoing interest in healthcare issues.  The Mystic Rectangle tends to be a rather rare pattern.

4.  Kites and Grand Trines (multiple): she has more “luck” than anyone can imagine.  Maybe she should just play the lotto and retire.  Then again, maybe American politics IS the lotto.

5.  Grand Cross: it gives her the energy to do an AMAZING amount of work, but it also leads to significant conflict with others.  Like the Mystic Rectangle, the Grand Cross is a relatively rare pattern.

We will show her natal chart repeatedly, but each time it will be filtered for different patterns:

First, we show the Hele patterns (when two or more are interlaced, we call this a “Hele Key”):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Hele Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

These patterns emphasize her ability to (1) form long term allegiances at the price of (2) polarizing people.  If you are truly her friend, she will stick by you through thick and thin.  But, it can be difficult to know whether or not your are truly her friend (only she really knows), and if you betray her there will be HELL TO PAY.

Here is her natal chart filtered for the Rosetta pattern (MANY of these; arguably a “Rosetta Key”):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Rosetta)

[Click to Enlarge]

The are short term allegiances that frequently sour and can turn to treachery.  It does not mean that SHE is treacherous, but it does mean that someone takes advantage of someone eventually.  She likely becomes skilled at becoming the winner in these conflicts over the course of her lifetime, especially given her other patterns (notably the Kites).  I count at least FOUR of these in play.  (That is, by itself, unusual.)  If you interact with her, then the big question becomes this one: is this a temporary allegiance (Rosetta) or a true long term alliance (Hele)?

Mystic Rectangle: we think that of all the patterns present, this one defines her (but the Grand Cross is a close second):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Mystic Rectangle)

[Click to Enlarge]

We note the four planets involved: (1) Sun in Scorpio (12th House); (2) Ceres in Taurus (6th House); (3) Juno in Sagittarius (2nd House); and (4) Hygeia in Cancer (8th House).  Interpretations: (1) Sun in Scorpio in 12th: she is very powerful at working behind the scenes.  Can she be a President and still do this? (2) Ceres in Taurus in 6th: economic woes (feast and famine); will this translate to the same pattern for the nation (BIG ups and downs!); (3) Juno in Sadge in 2nd: the Betrayed Wife of the Philandering Husband (yep, that really is who Juno is!); she was wounded by Bill far more than she will ever publicly admit; it was a BIG deal to her!  (4) Hygeia in 8th: She wants healthcare as an issue, but the 8th is tricky.  Maybe as a Scorpio she can pull it off.  But she better be careful about trying to cut the pay of nurses again.  In all fairness, I think she recognized her error and has made amends for it.

Juno in Sadge might be the most important planet for her as a person rather than a politician.  She is far more of a devoted wife and mother than she will ever let the public know.  This is because, as a Scorpio, she is afraid it might be seen as weakness.  But that Piscean Moon cares DEEPLY for her husband and daughter.  Truth be told, we will never know quite what she has gone through for them.

Hillary might can make the changes in healthcare that Obama has been trying to do if she is elected.  No doubt about it, except for the diplomacy issues (Middle East et al), healthcare *IS* her priority.

Kites and Grand Trines: again, I wish I had so many of these.  So do you.  That’s because ALMOST NO ONE has a chart that looks like this.  Kites tend to be “opportunity” and “luck.”  They are amplified Grand Trines.  She is almost drowning in them.

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Kites)

[Click to Enlarge]

I see at least three, but arguably four are present.  FOUR kites in a natal chart?  To speak in the vernacular: “ya gotta be kidding.”  Again, she could probably just play the lotto (repeatedly) and retire.  First house Jupiter confirms this.  But, the way she is configured, she would never do that.  That is particularly true with the Grand Cross.

Here are the Grand Trines:

Hillary Rodham Clinton (GrandTrines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

I count five (5) GT’s, and that means that FIVE Kites COULD be present.  Wow!  What else to say?  But GT’s can make a person lazy.  That would be true unless you have a T-Square or (even more powerful) a Grand Cross in the chart.  She DOES have a Grand Cross (and, like the Mystic Rectangle, these are comparatively RARE):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (GrandCross)

[Click to Enlarge]

The Grand Cross is her other “defining pattern,” second only to the Mystic Cross.  The Sun/Ceres opposition shows again, emphasizing the feast/famine issue in her life.  But, perhaps more interesting is the Astraea / Vesta opposition.  Justice opposite Tradition?  That is what she has, and it shows that Social Justice is, and always has been, a core issue in her life.  (I would say THE core issue, but we know from earlier that healthcare is at least as important as this one, and her family is most important of all.)

T-Squares: these are really almost superfluous after the Grand Cross, but we present them anyway to point out that she has an amazing amount of “energy”:

Hillary Rodham Clinton (T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Personally, I think she should recruit Al Gore to re-enter politics.

Finally, we present the chart in “Beginner” format with aspects with tightest orbs emphasized.  We note the Mercury square Saturn is particularly important with her (that says she has a remarkable attention to detail and will not tolerate anyone near her being “sloppy”), Mars / Pluto conjunction near Midheaven (she could either be warlike or somehow provoke war), and finally, the Mercury / Saturn / Moon Huber Learning Triangle (an HLT3) which shows, again, that she is willing to work to “earn” her “luck.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Beginner)

[Click to Enlarge]

Hillary Rodham Clinton (HLT3)

[Click to Enlarge]

Summary

This is meant to be a neutral review.  So, let’s be clear: if you are her enemy, chances are good she will destroy you.  She can be quite merciless.  And, frequently, people do not know where they stand with her.  She can be confusing (Scorpio/Pisces).  But, overall, she is benevolent and has good intent.  More than most others, she can effect real change in the healthcare system and with regard to social justice.  (Just leave our guns alone!)

It is possible she may be associated with a (big) war.

On that issue, let me say this: she is not a person to provoke a war by herself.  However, the people she chooses to surround herself with, and the allegiances that she forms, may lead to a situation in which no other meaningful choice exists.

This is a very good chart, and it would be a particularly powerful chart for a politician (as she is) or a top trial attorney or <smile> maybe even a lotto player.

Grand Cross of January 7th and Edward Snowden

January 7, 2014 at 12:00 am | Posted in 2014, 2014 Grand Cross, Astrology, BadDays, FamousPeople, Patterns, Predictions | Comments Off on Grand Cross of January 7th and Edward Snowden
Tags: , , ,

We are entering an “interesting” (and dangerous) period.  What will come is presaged by the Grand Cross of January 7th:

Grand Cross Jan 7th 1-6-2014 11-46-18 PM[Click to Enlarge]

As you can see, the main players are Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto.  The Uranus / Pluto square series has been discussed elsewhere on this site and on other sites.  We point out that adding Mars / Jupiter to the mix is a particularly powerful activation.  I tend to think of the Uranus / Pluto combination as a bit like a spark looking for a fuel / air mixture to make something go “boom.”  Mars / Jupiter tends to be a fuel / air mixture.

When this is in the form of a spark plug igniting gasoline in the cylinder of an automobile (or other vehicle), then the combination is useful.  But when it is a spark in a coal mine that makes coal dust go boom, this is very bad.

Here is the chart again (in a different form):

Grand Cross Jan 7th (reg chart) 1-6-2014 11-46-18 PM[Click to Enlarge]

Here is the U.S. Map:

US Map Grand Cross 1-6-2014 11-58-56 PMAlso, this pattern may mark an important turning point in the ongoing story of the NSA and Edward Snowden.  Using the data from this version of Edward Snowden’s chart, namely the June 21, 1983 / 0442 EDT / Elizabeth City NC data, yields a chart that shows (1) a Scorpio Moon applying (loosely) to an opposition to Algol, (2) Mars Conjunct North Node in first house, and (3) Sun conjunct Betelgeuse.

His 8th house (house of spies, intelligence agencies, and assassinations) is intercepted, and the ruler of the 8th (Saturn) is conjunct Pluto (planet of spies, intelligence agencies, and assassinations) in the 5th house (of speculation, luck, and gambling).

Here is his chart using the “Horary” page from Solar Fire 8:

Edward J Snowden 1-7-2014 12-14-37 AM[Click to Enlarge]

A turning point is coming for him soon (this month, January).  Sadly, chances for confinement look pretty strong for him.

But confinement will escalate his stature as a folk hero.  (The authorities will make a terrible mistake if they succeed in doing that.  Public perception will be a bit like looking at Darth Vader attempting to strike down Obi-Wan Kenobi when the supposedly feeble old man gently states “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”)

Do not be surprised to hear some compare him to Nelson Mandela should Snowden be imprisoned.

If the government REALLY wants to punish him, they should assist him in writing a NY Times bestseller and going on a really LONG book tour.  (Rumor has it that those book tours can be rather strenuous. 🙂  )

Ariel Castro found hanging

Here is the chart for Ariel Castro found hanging.  The Pluto / MC alignment makes a strong statement:

Image

[Click to Enlarge]

Exactly what this chart means is difficult to tell.  However, independent of the chart, his death so soon seems too merciful to him.  The details of his hanging have not been made public.  If this was a suicide, then how did such a high profile prisoner achieve that?

If this was a murder, one that likely will never be investigated in a meaningful way or prosecuted, then the intruder likely entered the cell at 9:06 PM +/- 1 minute (when Uranus, surprises, rose).  Uranus enters the 12th and Neptune aligns on the 12th house cusp a minute later.  The intruder used deception, perhaps someone pretending to be checking on the “well being” of Castro.  Another two minutes later, and Neptune enters the 11th, placing Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception by house.  The deception, and element of surprise, deepens.

By 9:10 PM, the struggle had began but did not last long.  Only a few minutes without oxygen were needed for the deed to be mostly complete, with him “found” by “about 9:20.”  (Probably between 9:18 PM and 9:19 PM, when Pluto was at Midheaven).

Neptune conjoins Midheaven at 10:48 PM, with Pluto entering the 8th (House of Death) a few minutes before that.  He was “prounounced” at 10:52 PM.

This is all speculation, of course.  And, it is very sinister on many levels.  His death means that we have been cheated of the justice that would have come from him being incarcerated for a very, very long time.

But, maybe he really did commit suicide.

Maybe.

Full Moon July 2013

July 21, 2013 at 2:00 am | Posted in 2013, 2013-Lunations, Astrology, Events, FamousPeople, Lunations, NatalChartAnalysis | 1 Comment

The July Full Moon this year, as is true most years, has the Moon in Capricorn and Sun in Cancer.  Capricorn is not a favorable place for the Moon (in most cases), and the Sun does not prosper in Cancer (the Moon’s home) either.

Oops, I suppose that we are still affected by the Mercury retrograde / change in station / storm.  I see, now, that this is a Leo / Aquarius full moon.  Those do not happen as often in July, and this one is at the critical zero (0) degrees mark!

Additionally, this one comes upon the heels of a Mercury direct station combined with a historic outer planet grand trine.  (Indeed, the end of the Mayan calendar in December did not gain my attention the way this particular Grand Trine has done.)

We produced predictions earlier this year that this year would tend to be marked by disasters in a manner similar to 2010.  Fortunately, we have not had any similar to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill or the nuclear meltdown in Japan.  Still, reading the news lists a remarkable number of events, ranging from earthquakes to liberation of people held captive for many years (in both Houston and Ohio) to fertilizer plant explosions.  Hopefully, these will start to recede, but the window for disasters is open through the end of the year for this particular year.

That said, here is the full moon chart, both in beginner format and horary format:

Full Moon July 2013 7-21-2013 2-47-59 AMFully Moon July 2013 (Horary Version) 7-21-2013 2-49-28 AM

As a bit of a footnote, I still believe that an important word leader (perhaps several) will be born this year.  This particular full moon would be a candidate for the time of birth of such a person.  (Various possibilities exist, but this is certainly one of them.)  The zero (0) degree mark here is a strong punctuation mark regarding the leadership potential of individuals born at this time.  I feel strongly that many of us will look back, in hindsight, and see the events of this summer as being particularly important in the years to come.

Update: when I wrote the above words, I was not anticipating the Royal Birth that occurred.  (I do not live in the UK, and lately I have not had time to keep up with UK events.)  However, I will state that I believe that this particular individual will be one of the most important in the Royal Family in a very long time, decades if not centuries.

This person will feel a huge amount of weight as they grapple with some remarkably difficult decisions through the course of their life.  They will wrestle endlessly with a internal war between compassion and prudence.  And, sometimes, they will find themselves at a loss for words.  But, in the end, they will have the potential for some of the greatest leadership that the Royal Family has ever seen.  (Keep in mind, as you read my words, that I am not an Englishman.  I am an American.  And, I am not just an American.  I am a Texan.  Frankly, we don’t bow to anyone, although sometimes we tip our hats to those that deserve it.)

Here is the chart, based on available news time:

Royal Birth 7-23-2013 1-06-06 AM

I suppose, in hindsight, that analyzing the Cancer / Capricorn polarity was the most appropriate after all!

That said, we see no air and very little fire.  Leo / Aquarius are intercepted signs, but they do not contain any major planets.  Venus has barely entered Virgo.  Moon in Cap is effectively inconjunct, and Algol is either setting or has just set (is on the 7th house cusp).  I would be greatly surprised if he were to be an intellectual.  (But, I am reluctant to rule out anything for a newborn.)  Relationships, particularly romances, will tend to be difficult.  He might be a bit of a “ladies man” (Algol setting) in some ways, but with Venus at 0 Virgo he will actually be rather conservative in private despite any public image.  He has the ruler of the 10th (Virgo, Mercury) in the 8th with Mars and Jupiter.  I would not be surprised to see him die a hero’s death in battle at an early age.  If that does happen, he will become emblematic of an important turning point for England (and the UK).

If he does survive his youth, he has the potential to be an unusually good money manager.  He might make certain significant financial decisions for England, and he has the potential to lead England into a new era of prosperity.

The Rescue in Cleveland

What kind of monster imprisons three women in his basement for years?  That is what more than a few people would like to know about Cleveland suspect Ariel Castro.  (We note that (a) he is innocent until proven guilty but that (b) the evidence against him is overwhelming.)

Specific birth time and location are not available for him at this time.  (We do not have access to his birth certificate, and specifics are not yet available.)  So, we have created a bi-wheel for his reported date of birth and the date of the rescue.  While the positions of the Moon and the Ascendant for both are in question, the resulting chart is still “interesting.”

Ariel Castro biwheel 5-11-2013 2-39-39 PM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Our method of rectification is simple.  But, first, keep in mind that we are operating with little to work with, and this is just a “best guess.”  That said, we looked at the charts and looked for the position of the moon on the day of rescue in relation to Castro’s birth chart.  We are guessing that the rescue happened in daylight hours though we are unsure whether closer to noon or sunset.  (We are using noon.)

We have adjusted Castro’s birth chart so that the Moon is just above the 7th house cusp (relationships and open enemies) on the day of the rescue.  Our other choices would be to put the Moon at the Midheaven (six hours earlier) or the IC (six hours later).

But, with the Moon on the 7th house cusp we note that Mercury, Mars, the Sun, the South Node, Pallas, and Venus are in an 8th house stellium (the 8th being the house of death as well as torture; we would also consider alternative versions that place these planets in a 12th house stellium of imprisonment and misfortune).

We note that transiting Juno (spousal relationships and especially issues involving treachery to spouses and family members) either recently aspected his Moon or is in the process of doing so.

Below is a “synastry grid” (usually used to identify compatibility between two people, but used here to identify relationships between Castro’s birth chart and the date of the rescue:

For now, that is all we have to say.  But, with more data later, we might update this article or write a subsequent article.

Something has come to light that is a major insight into the shooter at Newtown: he planned the event for years.  In fact, he developed a large and complex spreadsheet tracking the activities of other serial killers and mass murderers.  Apparently the spreadsheet was developed from the perspective of a video gamer.

…the gunman in the shooting rampage at a Connecticut school, was obsessed with past mass killings and even created a detailed spreadsheet more than 7-feet long documenting hundreds of killing sprees and attempted murders, the New York Daily News reports. [USA Today]

He didn’t snap that day, he wasn’t one of those guys who was mad as hell and wasn’t going to take it anymore,” the man said. “He had been planning this thing forever. In the end, it was just a perfect storm: These guns, one of them an AR-15, in the hands of a violent, insane gamer. It was like porn to a rapist. They feed on it until they go out and say, enough of the video screen. Now I’m actually going to be a hunter. [New York Daily News]
