We cast this chart “live” as the confirmation of the death of the Kouachi brothers in the Paris hostage situation was reported by CNBC.  We note that the Moon opposition to Chiron / Neptune is active during this process, with Moon having set slightly before the report, Neptune having just risen, and Chiron rising.

(This is the Plano chart, cast local to astrologer.  If you are a regular reader, you know why we do this.  Just in case you are not: we do this because it takes into account that we are viewing the event through our own personal “lens.”  Since this is a clear-cut event in a particular location, we will provide that chart also.)

Compare this to the chart for the Boston Marathon bombing (with Chiron / Neptune setting).  Unlike Boston, we also have Mars in play (who probably represents the hostage taker at the Kosher supermarket).  The key player in all of this, however, is the MOON, and SHE (Hayat Boumediene) probably represents the woman that has been mentioned several times by the press.  (Where is she?  Cherchez la femme!)

Just in report: death of the hostage taker at the supermarket (just barely past the rising of Chiron).

In the immediately preceding post to this one, we mentioned the importance of this particular Moon opposition to Chiron / Neptune on this date.  Do not think for a moment this is “over.”  Based on the other patterns (Hele, Focused Yod) on this date, we expect continued polarization (Hele) to occur and a potential for more violence (focused yod) to be in play.

Here is the Horary version of this chart for those who wish to interpret that:

We also have the Paris version of the chart here:

Here is the same version of the chart as an Horary page:

2015-01-09 Confirmation Karouchi Brothers (Paris) Horary

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that a slightly more “interesting” chart occurred an hour before this.  (Please, someone double check my time calculations to make certain my adjustments for Paris were correct. Should the correct time be adjusted from 10:23 CST in Plano (Dallas TX) to 4:23 PM CET in Paris or 5:23 PM CET in Paris?)  (The minutes and seconds are EXACT, with the “Now” button in Solar Fire clicked as the words of the report (“confirmation”) were spoken.  Only the hour is in question.)

This one hour earlier chart (accidentally first published until we double checked our work) seems to actually describe the events better.  (Moon at IC, aka “the grave,” Neptune / Chiron at Midheaven (the brothers), etc.)

2015-01-09 Confirmation Karouchi Brothers (Paris) earlier

[Click Image to Enlarge]

If this chart (an hour earlier?) was really the turning point, here is what we read.  (1) Again, the “femme” (Hayat Boumediene) is the key.  (2) She heavily influenced the brothers but not as much the man in the grocery store (even though he is described as her “husband”).

In one chart, the earlier chart, Mars (almost certainly Amedy Coulibaly) was in opposition to the “Part of Treachery.”  In the other chart, the later (official) chart, Moon is conjunct (aligned with) the “Part of Treachery.”  Was the death of her “husband” her ticket out of an arranged “marriage” that had failed?

Mercury and Venus (8th house) likely represent the dead hostages.

Seventh house shows three more (as yet undiscovered) co-conspirators, at least one of whom is a particularly sinister figure (Pluto).  One of the three (as yet undiscovered) co-conspirators may be some kind of religious figure or “traditional” female (Vesta).  The Plutonic figure may actually be a member of an intelligence community and could have been an agent provocateur.  If so, they will never be found and no official admission of their existence will ever occur.

Finally, these two brothers (Neptune and Chiron) simply could not achieve anything meaningful in life, and the horrible acts they committed as they competed for the attention of the woman (Moon) and this horrible death was the “best” they could achieve (Midheaven).

We present this version in the Horary format here:

Astrological Charts for Virgin Galactic crash Halloween 2014

In keeping with our production of charts for catastrophes happening in late October of 2014, here are the charts for the Virgin Galactic crash of Halloween 2014.  The crash happened near the Mojave Air and Space Port near Mojave CA.

Virgin Galactic Takeoff (Beginners) 2014-10-31

We note that this chart most closely resembles the Wichita KS plane crash yesterday and the rectified chart for the Marysville school shootings.  (This chart more closely resembles those than it does the Orbital Sciences rocket explosion.)  The horary version of the chart contains Sun Opposite Part of Catastrophe, as did the Wichita KS plane crash.

Here is the chart for the report of the explosion “45 minutes after takeoff.”

And here is the horary version of the same:

Virgin Galactic Reported Explosion (Horary) 2014-10-31

[Click to Enlarge]

A few points are noteworthy.  First of all, this chart resembles the chart of when “the first 911 calls came in” of the Marysville School shootings.  Second, a remarkable number of Arabic Parts are activated, particularly by Neptune.  We note that Saturn (restriction) touches the Part of Commerce (bad for Mr. Branson).  (We like the Space program in all its variants, including the commercial ones, so we are saddened to hear this.)

We have listed here the appliacable Arabic Parts: (with emphasis added)

Plano Restaurant Shooting

October 30, 2014 at 9:50 pm | Posted in 2014, Astrology, BadDays | Comments Off on Plano Restaurant Shooting
Tags: , ,

Not a major event compared to rocket explosions and school shootings, but the restaurant shooting tonight was nearby and is similar to the charts for the recent school shooting, rocket explosion, and plane crash.  (Arguably it was worse than the rocket explosion since life was lost at the restaurant shooting.)

So, in the name of consistency, here is the chart for that event as well.  (Note that it was at virtually the same clock time, but different time zone, as the rocket explosion.  Time for the event was obtained here.)

Plano Restaurant Shooting 2014-10-30 (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

And here is the horary (many activated Arabic Parts, though none of them seem particularly ominous):

Plano Restaurant Shooting 2014-10-30 (Horary)

[Click to Enlarge]

Apparently these individuals knew each other, but we do not know what they were fighting about or why one of them shot and killed the other.  Plano is ordinarily an upscale type of town, thought of more like Santa Barbara than Camden.  Also, we note that the time given here is at 2 Taurus.  If the dispute that lead to the shooting began earlier, it may have occurred at 29 Scorpio (as with the other charts).

So, is it this Pallas / Sun / Venus / Saturn combination (all in Scorpio), when angular or in the twelfth house, that is so deadly?  If so, why?  (Would love to hear a few opinions on this.)

As an aside, this is starting to feel a bit like “The Darwin Awards.”

We note another catastrophe, a plane crash, occurred today (2014 October 30).  The chart has a remarkable resemblance to our rectified version of the recent Marysville school shootings.  According this report, the crash “happened around 9:50 a.m.”  (Our rectified chart for the recent Marysville school shootings is set at 9:47 EDT a few days earlier.)  The same planets are in the twelfth house in both charts, except that the Moon has moved to 0 degrees Aquarius in today’s plane crash.  (We note that virtually all of the preparations to depart likely occurred during a Capricorn Moon void of course.)

Here is the chart for the plane crash:

Wichita Plane Crash 2014-10-30

[Click to Enlarge]

As with the other chart, we find the horary version a little more interesting.  (The Sun opposes the “Part of Catastrophe” in this different rendition of the same moment in time.)

Wichita Plane Crash 2014-10-30 (Horary)

We note that this time, 9:50 EDT, places the ascendant at 29 Scorpio, a “fated” degree.  (Perhaps we should relocate our School Shooting chart to use that same degree as well?)

Astrology Chart for Orbital Sciences Corp’s Antares rocket explosion

October 29, 2014 at 3:27 pm | Posted in 2014, Astrology, BadDays, Events | 2 Comments

Here is the Astrology Chart for Orbital Sciences Corp’s Antares rocket explosion.  We have used 6:22 PM EDT based on this article at CNN and this article at CS Monitor.  (Our Atlas does not contain Wallops Island, VA, so we used nearby Temperanceville, VA.)

Orbital Sciences Corps Antares rocket (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that Moon is besieged by Mars/Pluto and close to the midpoint of Mars/Pluto.  Otherwise, the chart is curiously unremarkable (how oddly similar in that sense to the Marysville Shootings chart).  We note that, except for the Moon, the planets of this chart (the rocket explosion) in the sixth house are essentially opposite themselves in the twelfth house of the Marysville chart.  (This implies that they are astrologically connected, but how?)

Moon / Pluto are in an intercepted ninth house, Mars in the eighth (death), and Uranus (explosions) in the twelfth.  Pisces / Virgo is intercepted (with Chiron/Neptune contained within Pisces).

Exactly what led to this explosion is not clear.  But the chart does tend to indicate that things could have been MUCH worse had the launch been later (after 7 PM is particularly bad).  So close to the Eclipse / Mercury Direct Station of a few days ago, we can interpret that somehow this event was “overdue.”  (Perhaps this is true because of the source of the engines.)  Still, we interpret this chart as an event that could have been far worse.  (We applaud whoever in the firm had safety checks in place that prevented any loss of life.)

The horary version of this chart is slightly more interesting.  We note that the Arabic Parts of (1) Danger or Peril and (2) Fatality are activated by asteroids.

Marysville School Shootings

October 29, 2014 at 8:02 am | Posted in 2014, Astrology, BadDays, Events | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Marysville school shootings occurred the day after the New Moon and the day before the Mercury Direct Station, sandwiched between the two.  After some of the earlier activity (Rosetta and so forth), an event of this kind is not surprising.

What seems a bit odd, however, is the timing.  (Why sandwiched between the Eclipse and the Direct Station?  Midpoints of some kind?)

Here is the chart for when “the first 911 calls came in“:

Marysville Shootings 911 Calls

[Click to Enlarge]

As one can easily see, it is a bit of a messy chart.  But we expect that most of the key events have occurred once 911 calls start happening.  Consequently, a rectified chart seems in order.  (This situation seems commonplace in school shootings and certain other similar tragedies.)

Here is one rectified chart.  (Note that, now, a 12th house stellium results from setting the chart not quite an hour earlier.)

Marysville High School Shootings (Rectified)

[Click to Enlarge]

The 12th house often represents victims, and in this chart it is full.  (Compare this to the Boston Marathon Bombing chart.  There, the 7th has Neptune and Chiron (the house of “open enemies” has the two brothers), and the 8th house (the “death house,” and one of the three water houses, along with the 12th and the 4th) has a stellium.)  We also note that this chart (Saturn rising) has the 12th house cusp at 29 Scorpio (the most “fated” degree of that sign).

Leo / Aquarius are intercepted here, and Jupiter is within the interception.  Curiously, Jaylen Fryberg (the shooter) had been elected “Homecoming Prince.”  (Leo is associated with “royalty,” and intercepted signs or houses are (severely) distressed.)  Juno (trust and betrayal) is also nearby in Leo (and intercepted as well).  Both Jupiter and Juno are in the 9th house of schools.

We also see Chiron (the Wounded Healer) just past the 4th house cusp (typically “home” but also graves and “final resting place”), and Neptune approaching it.  (Again, compare this to the Boston Marathon Bombing chart.  Both charts have Chiron/Neptune at Angular positions.  Also, compare this chart to that of the Sandy Hook shootings.)

Since this is nearly an hour prior to the first 911 calls, we are guessing that the true “beginning” of the event was when the text messages were initially sent, and that the shooter began sending the text messages to “invite” the victims to “lunch.”  We also note that, on a somewhat larger scale, Saturn is moving into an opposition with Algol.

For those interested in Midpoints, we have included the Modulus Sort Strips:

Marysville Shootings Modulus Sort Strips

Here is the same chart with Midpoint Trees:

Marysville Shootings (Midpoint Trees)

[Click to Enlarge]

Still, this chart lacks the clarity of some other charts we have analyzed.  (We had a similar question regarding location on the much cleaner West, Texas Explosion chart.)  In many ways, this chart (and event) remain an enigma.

(We add, in parting, that Sun (peregrine, a thief) is quincunx (false hopes) Astraea (justice).

Translation: an injustice that will possibly never be resolved.)

Perhaps certain details will always remain a mystery.

A 2014 Time Map of Septiles (and some discussion of the Astrology of the Ebola Outbreak)

October 17, 2014 at 10:48 pm | Posted in Astrology, BadDays, Events, Higher Order Aspects | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Since we are in a massively creative (as well as massively dangerous!) period, I thought I would deviate from my recent tendency to focus on New Moons, Full Moons, Mercury Retrogrades and such similar events.  Using Solar Fire 8 (with some email guidance from Madalyn Hillis-Dineen of Astrolabe), I decided to explore some higher order aspects.  What follows is a “time map” of outer planet septiles (and similar aspects such as tri-septiles) for the next 12 months (starting Oct 1, 2014).

Septile aspects (and variants) are indicative of periods of “karma” or “reaping what you have sown.”  (However, if you are a seamstress, it might be a case of “ripping what you have sewn.”)  Outer planets (or “generational planets”) tend to affect “all” (or “most”) of us, with some more directly (and intensely) affected than others.  Keep an eye out and let me know if any of these dates turn out to be “significant” for you.

The Jupiter / Neptune TriSeptile (TSpt) pair of March 30, 2015 / May 5, 2015 looks particularly interesting.  I suspect that, if the current (October, 2014) issues with EBola have not been resolved by next spring (2015), that we will see critical turning points on or near those two dates.

Note the Jupiter TriSeptile Chiron (exact) aspect of October 14, 2014.  On that date:

  • Germany On October 14, the first patient in Germany dies from EVD,  a 56-year-old Sudanese UN employee who had been the third medical evacacuee to Germany, at St Georg Hospital in Leipzig.
  • USA On October 14 anonymous nurses allege that there were no protocols in the treatment of Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, that their protective gear was insufficient, and that hazardous waste was allowed to pile up.
  • Also on October 14, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings announced that Nina Pham’s one-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel would be kept in isolation and monitored at Hensley Field.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Ebola_virus_disease_epidemic_timeline#October_2014

Outer planet aspects are VERY SLOW compared to others, so the weeks preceding and following the exact aspect bear inspection as well.

We note: (1) prior to the discovery of Neptune, Jupiter was associated with healing (and, therefore, illness) as well as continuing to be associated with animals (such as Bentley?); (2) Chiron is directly associated with healing, being called sometimes the “wounded healer.”  (Wounder healer = infected nurse?)

Climbing a bit further out on the metaphorical limb, the Saturn BiSeptile (BSpt) Neptune aspect of October 16th seems to tie in the recent woes of the financial markets.

My hope is that the Ebola (and Enterovirus EV-D68 and any other contagious diseases) outbreak is contained, the financial markets are healed as well, and that these karmic aspects find a different outlet for expression of their significance.

Fort Hood BiWheel 2 2014-04-03_4-05-30And here is the synastry grid.  We note that, oddly, trines (at 22 degrees) seem to dominate:

Fort Hood Synastry Grid 2014-04-03_4-07-28

We also note that the first major variant of the 2014 Grand Cross is only a few weeks away.  This seems to be a dangerous period.

Also worthy of note: Fort Hood #2 had Algol at Midheaven.

Grand Cross of Feb 17/18 2014

Things could go BOOM! this week.

Different events have been signaling the kinds of strained relations and flaring tempers that can be associated with the Grand Cross formation of 2014.  February 17/18 will show us the first alignment of the group (foreshadowing the Alignment of April 20th).

Grand Cross Feb 17 2-15-2014 11-00-49 PM

The above chart is indicated as the “beginning” by Solar Fire, but the alignment has been “beginning” for some months (years?) now.  Given that this is an outer planet chart and that it really governs (at least) the two 24 hour periods of Feb 17 and Feb 18, a chart of a “moment” may be questionable.  Regardless, here is the above data cast in “beginner” chart format under Solar Fire:

Grand Cross Feb 17 (beginner) 2-15-2014 11-08-21 PM

A bit more interesting is a chart that emerges the following morning (during rush hour for CST / EST):

Grand Cross Chiron Rises 2-15-2014 11-13-20 PMRetrograde Mercury, Sun, Neptune and Chiron are all in the 12th house in this chart; Saturn, North Node, Ceres, Vesta, and Mars are in the 8th house.   Moon has perfected a square to Jupiter and opposition to Uranus (forming a T-Square).  Hard to say, but we think this will be an “interesting” period, particularly for geography experiencing rush hour.

A grand trine follows on the 20th / 21st and Thor’s Hammers as well.  We should see an interesting week.

Thors Hammer Feb 21st 2-15-2014 11-17-53 PM

This appears to primarily affect the time period of rush hour on Thursday.  However, since it is primarily an outer planet alignment (Jupiter and Uranus with Saturn at the apex!), it really affects the days (and maybe weeks) preceding and following the alignment.  Frankly, it looks like a bit of a rough week.  (Adam Lanza’s birth chart had a Thor’s Hammer.  So did the chart for the Fukishima earthquake and tsunami in 2011.)  Some things might go boom.

Valentine’s Day 2014 Full Moon has a Hard Rectangle

February 1, 2014 at 12:57 am | Posted in Astrology, BadDays, Lunations, Patterns, Predictions, Weekends | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Edit: The last time we had a Valentine’s Day anything like this one was 19 years ago; the next one will not happen for another 19 years.  Really, this is a rather unique alignment of the Sun/Moon for this holiday, and the Hard Rectangle makes it even more “interesting.”  And, I have to agree with what I have read elsewhere: avoid arguments and disputes with oddball people.  After all, if you get in an argument with a crazy person, an observer might not know which one of you is the madman.

Valentine’s Day can be difficult for many of us.  If you are not a picture perfect person in a relationship or expecting strong dating opportunities, the holiday can be downright cruel.  The Leo / Aquarius Full Moon on Valentines Day this year is part of a “Hard Rectangle,” and we expect to see more squabbles than tranquil moments.  (Perhaps “making up” will be good on this date, though.)

The astrology for Valentines Day is a bit “tough” this year.

Here is the chart with the Hard Rectangle identified:

Valentines 2014 Hard Rectangle 2-1-2014 12-41-06 AM

The Jupiter / Pluto opposition is part of this pattern (along with the Leo Moon / Aquarius Sun).  Built from semi-squares and sesquiquadrates, many of us will feel agitated.  In some cases this could be a dangerous period for some.  Here is the full moon chart (set at time of culmination):

Valentines Day 2014 Full Moon 2-1-2014 12-53-24 AM

Essentially Venus is conjunct Pluto.  This CAN be GREAT for “love” and sex.  The two are merged.  However, a real risk of serious power struggles exists on this date.  Only you can decide how to use the energy, but whether used destructively or constructively the energy will be associated with emotions running unusually high on this date.

By 6PM CST (5 PM EST / 8PM PST), the Moon turns void of course for the remainder of the evening.  Friday night dates may have a bit of weirdness to them.  Blind dates will have unexpected results (the other person is married already, the other person has a quirk that bothers or, (best case) you thought you would hate them but like them; the worst case is you like them but something interrupts it and you never see them again).  Planned dates may have things go awry.

The best “dates” will be quiet time if you can achieve it despite the intense energy, or maybe some safe activity that is highly physical but quiet and away from the world.  You will have to use you imagination to determine what that might be.

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. 🙂  )

The event obviously tied to this full moon (typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda) occurred BEFORE the culmination of this most malefic of FM’s.  We provide the chart, here, set in first in Tacloban (we note the Moon at MC and the Sun at the IC; the IC is the location of a “grave” and the FM culminates close to midnight local time) and then Plano.  We also note that this was the FM following a Mercury retrograde, and it occurs during a period of difficulty discussed in an earlier post.  We also note a sextile, a tight one, between Pluto (death & rebirth) and Chiron (healing, lessons learned) at this time.

If your personal belief system supports such a notion, this would be a good time to have a ceremony, perhaps just lighting a candle, to honor and remember the dead.

Uranus Square Pluto (November 2013)

This is a followup to the earlier Uranus Square Pluto post.  We focus here on the November square.

Here is the chart:

Uranus Square Pluto (Horary version) 9-4-2013 5-01-20 PM

We note that this occurs in the early morning hours, before sunrise, on the day after the United States holiday of Halloween.  Also, this occurs on the Day of the Dead.  Uranus brings surprises, and Pluto brings the most potent of transformations, often those involving death, poisons, police, and intelligence agencies.

Moon is just past opposition of Uranus, Pluto continues to be conjunct Facies (the Eye of the Archer, considered by many to be the most violent point in the Zodiac and nearly as fearsome as Algol), and Mars opposes / Chiron conjoins the Arabic Part of Catastrophe.

Sounds like a pretty scary Halloween (including the few days leading up to Halloween).  (If dangerous days occur, we think that some may actually occur within the week or so prior to this aspect.  Part of this has to do with the Jupiter / Pluto opposition that precedes this.  Also, the Libra New Moon creates a particularly stressful Grand Cross preceding this, the topic of another post.)

The Midwest, and particularly DFW (Dallas Fort Worth, including Plano) are lit up on the U.S. Map:

For my several visitors from Shreveport LA: yes, you are strongly activated by this map.  So is Little Rock, Oklahoma City, and Wichita KS.  If you have dealings with two or more of these cities (such as a route you drive), then you may strongly “feel” this event.  As mentioned previously, the precipitating event may occur as early as the Libra new moon that PRECEDES this aspect.

Here is the map for Europe and the UK:

While we see modest activations of Ireland and Portugal, by far the most active area in Europe is the border between Lithuania and Poland.  (What is THAT about?)

The Western Coast of Australia, particularly the Southwest (including Perth), may be the most activated place on the planet:

If you can avoid the violence prone qualities of this period of time, powerful insights (innovations in particular) can be had.  This can be a good time for innovations in medicine, electronics, or especially combinations of medicine and electronics.  Maybe WAIMR will have a breakthrough of some kind, perhaps in cancer research, during this period.

Here is the corresponding map for Southeast Asia, also notably complex and activated.  The sea between Saudia Arabia and Iran is in issue, Delhi India is activated, and, well, look at the map for the rest….

A large number of Thor’s Hammer periods are with us through the end of the year.  September 25th through October 11th is a  particularly dangerous period, but the many Thor’s hammer periods indicate the time through the end of the year is risky in many ways (especially when coupled with the Uranus / Pluto square).  The risk of war, a really BIG war, is much larger than many realize.

Mars Conjunct Sun (April 2013): Explosion at West, Texas

April 18, 2013 at 9:26 pm | Posted in 2013, Astrology, BadDays, Events | 2 Comments
Tags: , , ,

As interesting as the chart is, the map is even more interesting.  Here is a Solar Maps map of the time reported for the explosion:

West Texas Explosion (Map) 4-18-2013 11-36-34 AM[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that this same line (Mars/Sun conjunct) also passes through Dallas and Austin.  Why this location?  That is a question for someone else to answer.  But, the Mars/Sun conjunction occurred at 28 Aries on a day with no other (major) aspects.

Here is the chart:

West Texas Explosion (Chart) 4-18-2013 11-39-17 AM[Click Image to Enlarge]

Of course, the last three degrees of any sign are said to be the “fated” degrees and have been discussed at length in relation to unfavorable events. Mars rules Aries and is in its home.  And, the same stellium associated with the Boston Marathon explosion a few days later is in the sixth house at this location.  (We would not expect the sixth house to be as malefic as the eighth, but apparently it was in this case.)

The period of days near May 24, 2013 are likely to be a dangerous period.  At this time, Mars will move into a conjunction with Algol.  We expect an event that has the potential to eclipse the intensity of events earlier this Spring.

Boston Marathon Bombing 2013

April 15, 2013 at 5:30 pm | Posted in 2013, Astrology, BadDays, Events | 10 Comments
Tags: , , , ,

Here is the chart for the Boston Marathon bombing.  We are using the time reported by television news, “about 2:50 PM.”  If that time is correct, and we suspect that it is, then we are inclined to wonder if the bomber had the advise of an astrologer in planning the bombing.  First, here are different versions of the same chart of the bombing:

Boston Marathon (Wheel) 4-15-2013 6-10-29 PMBoston Marathon (Beginner) 4-15-2013 6-11-14 PM

[Click on Image to Enlarge]

Note the 8th House stellium of Aries planets, including Uranus and Mars.  Much later and this combination of planets would not have been in alignment.  (A stellium is a huge “exclamation mark” and this one has Mars (violence, war, and athletes) and Uranus (explosions, among other things) in the 8th house (of death and taxes).

Here is the horary version of that same chart:

Boston Marathon (Horary) 4-15-2013 6-14-35 PM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Moon is quite close to culminating an aspect to Mars.  (After this, Luna goes void.)  Sun is applying to a conjunction to Mars, perfecting in the next 24 hours.

The map shows the Neptune setting line that is obvious from the Chart.  That line is north and east of Boston.  We would not be surprised to learn that the bomber was operating from an area north and east of Boston.  In fact, we would expect that the base of the bomber was actually somewhere in rural New England, to the north and east of Boston.

Here is the map:

Boston Marathon (US Map) 4-15-2013 6-25-37 PM[Click Image to Enlarge]

Will the bomber be caught?  We think so.  They appear to be represented by Neptune, and this means that some will perceive them as a “martyr” rather than a terrorist.  (This also means that, potentially, the wrong person could be accused.  But, we do think this one will be solved.)  Neptune has difficulty keeping secrets, and located in the 7th house of “open enemies” we expect the identity (or identities) of the bombers to come out.

We note in our recent “New Moon April 2013” commentary that “You will notice that this chart is dominated by Fire as an element.  Fire is not necessarily literally fire(s), but can be explosions both literal (an oil rig explodes) or figurative (a person on a rampage).”  A “Double Yod Key” perfected yesterday (April 14th).  In many ways, the Spring of 2013 seems to have certain important similarities to Spring of 2010.  A number of tragedies have struck us so far this Spring, including this one.  We would not be surprised to see more.

P.S.  To the guy who wanted me to cancel his email subscription: apparently WordPress does not give me control over that.  You will have to do that yourself, or maybe contact Automattic support to have that done for you.  (I apologize for any inconvenience.)

Double Yod Keys of Spring 2013

March 26, 2013 at 12:45 am | Posted in 2013, Astrology, BadDays, Patterns | Comments Off on Double Yod Keys of Spring 2013
Tags: , , , , ,

A number of complex (and powerful!) patterns are forming this Spring.  One that is showing itself repeatedly is the Double Yod Key.  Here is a list (from Solar Fire 8) of these patterns (through the end of June, 2013).

Here are associated charts:

This one is happening concurrent with the intensely active Full Moon of March 27th.  As I have mentioned elsewhere, this period has been a bit difficult for me.  Here is the chart:

Finally, here is the May DYK:

Double Yod Key (May) 3-26-2013 1-50-07 AM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

So, what does this mean?

It means that we have decisions to make, and no matter what we choose we find that we are uncomfortable with it.  We have false hopes for outcomes and are inevitably disappointed.  But, even worse, this pattern keeps repeating, hammering us with Karma that just will not go away.  It is as if the Universe does not care whether or not we learned the lesson, we are doomed to continue to repeat. “OK, I got it already!” does not seem to work here.

Frankly, it looks like a rather unpleasant period.

Once again, I hope that I am wrong.

If you are comparing this sequence to other periods, take a look at the Stretched Pentagram of January 26th.  Collectively, we turned an important corner on that date.  (I cannot tell you exactly WHAT happened, but I know something did.  It may not “show” itself until the Year of the Black Water Snake is over.)  My best guess is that it might involve the Tornado Outbreak shortly after that pattern culminated.

We also note that a similar kind of formation of yods occurred on December 14, the day of the Newtown shootings by Adam Lanza.

Hopefully nothing that awful will happen with these configurations.

 

 

Mass Murder Spreadsheet

Tags: ,

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]

See, also, the following links:

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]

Capricorn Moon / Taurus Sun: persistent practically stubborn effort over time.
