Here is the chart for the Hard Rectangle pattern of May 20/21, 2015

Tempers are likely to fly during this period.  At a minimum, people are “irritable.”

No charts, but an event local to Texas that is what we would expect with an Algol New Moon:

This is bad enough.  Let’s hope that we do not have similar events over the course of the Mercury Retrograde / storm.

We are using a reported time of the accident of “just after 9 PM” set to 9:02 EDT.  What stands out to us is the very nearly exact TriSeptile aspect of the Moon to its North Node: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 TriSeptiles

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Other characteristics are in play as well.  Pluto in 2nd house tells us that this is an event that likely involves a large amount of “other peoples money.”  (Insurance; lawsuits)  Saturn rising and in the 12th suggests difficulties.  But, again, the Moon TriSeptile its North Node (Fate or Karma) is most noteworthy.  We also note precise TriSeptiles between Neptune on one side and Jupiter / Juno (which are essentially conjunct in Leo) on the other side. Also interesting are the 5th order harmonics, and we see two patterns composed of those that resemble the “T-Square” that occurs with 4th order harmonics (squares and oppositions): Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 5th order harmonics

We think that, curiously, this event made lead to certain important innovations in transportation safety.  One of these triangular patterns is part of a larger Quintile Kite in play that we have discussed elsewhere: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Quintile Kite

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Hard Rectangle discussed on the May 15th post, involving Mars Opposite Saturn, is already in play here, and we think a major contributor to this even.  (But, again, we think that the Lunar Triseptile was the precipitating aspect.)

Note that this pattern includes (1) the rising Saturn / setting Mars and (2) the 2nd house Pluto / 8th house Hygeia.  As we have said before, we think this pattern is dangerous.

Mars Opp Saturn on May 15, 2015 (Hard Rectangle)

We present the chart for the Mars Opposition Saturn which culminates on May 15, 2015 (15-05-15): 2015-05-15 Mars Opps Saturn (Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that this opposition occurs a few days before (1) the New Moon in late Taurus and (2) the upcoming Mercury Retrograde. Mars opposite Saturn is considered difficult all by itself, but the Hard Rectangle amplifies the intensity. A Thor’s Hammer is also in play at this time: 2015-05-15 Mars Opps Saturn (Thors Hammer in Play)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is a longer term Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) and will cover the upcoming New Moon and Mercury Retrograde station.

All this dark and potentially dangerous energy has a silver lining: a longer term Quintile Kite is present:

Funnel that energy into creative works (poetry, music, painting, photography, dance, and so forth) and you can develop something long lasting and worthwhile.  Just be careful not to overdo it.

University of South Carolina Shootings (USC) February 2015

What catches our eye about this event (and we are using 1 PM based on news reports, so accuracy might be in question by a few minutes), is the Hele that is in play.  As we have mentioned before, the Hele tends to be a polarizing pattern that splits people into opposing groups who have difficulty coming to agreement:

USC Shootins (Basic, Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

While probably not as unforgiving as a Capricorn Moon, Virgo moons tend to focus on details and sometimes ignore the “bigger picture.”  This can be infuriating to some people.  Moon opposite Neptune (delusions, drugs, and alcohol; also victims, martyrs, and the downtrodden) is almost exact here.

We note, also, (and oddly!) a kite here.  Someone missed an opportunity, unless you consider the shooting itself to be an “opportunity.”  This kite contains a grand fire trine, and that can fuel emotions (and possibly tempers).

USC Shootins (Basic, Fire Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the South Node is part of the Grand Trine, and that is about “taking the easy way out.”  Pallas (the warrior asteroid), and Jupiter (the great amplifier that makes everything larger and sometimes blows some things “out of proportion” complete the grand trine).  The kite is completed by an Aquarian Sun in the process of perfecting an opposition to Jupiter.

We also note a number of T-Squares in play (along with the anxiety and conflict that they bring):

USC Shootins (Basic, T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We suspect that the precipitating event was a bit earlier, probably about 12:30 PM EST (or maybe slightly later), when Saturn was angular and on the 7th house cusp.

USC Shootins (Basic, Saturn Angular)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Of course, Saturn is anathema to the 7th house of relationships (and open enemies).  We see a Saturn / North Node (Karma) triseptile (one of the karmic aspects) along with a square to the Moon and inconjunct with Hygeia (healthcare, and this shooting happened in the healthcare department).

While we do see some “fate” in this chart, we suspect that the parties involved had some choice.  The chart even indicated an “opportunity” here for someone willing step away from the situation and look for it.  (And, with other people in other locales, that exact thing may have happened.  That is, any person in a desperate situation similar to that of the shooter found away to gain advantage in a different (non-violent) manner just by pausing long enough to see it.  Then, an explosive reaction was no longer necessary and no “event” occurred.)

Astrology of the Death of the Kouachi brothers in Paris hostage situation

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.)

2015-01-09 Confirmation Karouchi Brothers

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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:

2015-01-09 Confirmation Karouchi Brothers (Horary)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also have the Paris version of the chart here:

2015-01-09 Confirmation Karouchi Brothers (Paris)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

October 31, 2014 at 2:35 pm | Posted in 2014, Astrology, BadDays | 1 Comment
Tags: , , ,

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

[Click to Enlarge]

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.

Virgin Galactic Takeoff (Horary) 2014-10-31

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

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

[Click to Enlarge]

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)


Virgin Galactice Crash – Event Chart

* Part of Commerce * 23°Sc59 Cnj Sat 0°08′

* Part of Passion * 08°Aq12 Opp Jun 0°54′

* Part of Organisation * 15°Aq40 Cnj Mon 0°20′

* Part of Spirit (Day) * 04°Vi40 Opp Nep 0°11′

* Part of Inheritances * 04°Pi40 Cnj Nep 0°11′

* Part of Plays * 18°Li25 Cnj Nod 0°14′ Opp SNo 0°14′

* Part of Marriage * 15°Cn09 Cnj Hyg 0°27′

* Part of Death * 06°Ta11 Opp Pal 0°48′

* Part of Danger or Peril * 04°Pi40 Cnj Nep 0°11′

* Part of Faith * 16°Le09 Opp Mon 0°08′

* Part of Nobility & Honor * 23°Ta17 Opp Sat 0°32′

* Part of Imprisonment * 15°Le49 Opp Mon 0°11′

* Part of Private Enemies * 18°Li40 Cnj Nod 0°28′ Opp SNo 0°28′

We also note that the Vesta line (associated with fire(s)) is crossing either near or on top of the Spaceport at this time.

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.”

Astrology Chart for Wichita KS Plane Crash (2014-10-30)

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)


[Click to Enlarge]

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.
