[This article is LONG, “tl;dr” for most of you. But, some of you might like it.]

Whether or not I will perform another analysis on this topic (of Bonnie and Clyde, the ambush, and related personalities) is an open question. Sometimes even with an intent to continue, work remains unfinished.
In this entry, we will explore some basics about the death chart for “Bonnie and Clyde,” meaning Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, bank robbers in the early 1930’s ambushed on May 23, 1934 somewhere near Arcadia, Louisiana or Gibsland, probably between the two on or near Highway 80.

A Few Notes

I start with several notes.

First, the ambush by six gunmen, “law enforcement,” was led by Frank Hamer.

“[T]he police knew that Bonnie and Clyde didn’t hesitate to shoot their way out of trouble, and had loaded up on guns accordingly. They were ready to kill, and Bonnie and Clyde never fired a shot.” [emphasis added]

General Comments

I performed a search but could not find support for this statement: “Historically, the family of Frank Hamer, notably his widow, has been litigious / acrimonious regarding any questions of the actions of Frank or the ‘posse’ at the ambush of Bonnie and Clyde.”

In reality, I researched this topic (Bonnie and Clyde) a few years ago and found webpages that said almost exactly the same thing a few years ago. They seem to have disappeared, or the search engines have buried them. Therefore, I do not have the support that I like to have to make such an assertion.

What I CAN assert is this: “The highly publicized shootout brought Hamer the sort of widespread attention he despised. He said he would not attend the proposed Hamer-Gault Hero Day in Austin, and turned down all media offers to share his story of the Bonnie and Clyde investigation with the public.”

Source : https://www.biography.com/news/frank-hamer-maney-gault-killed-bonnie-clyde

AND, going “out on a limb,” I can assert that, nearly two decades before the ambush, Hamer threatened a state representative: “And so, when [Hamer] came under investigation Hamer used the same tactics to defend himself. In December 1918, Hamer approached State Rep. José T Canales, asking for the name of the ‘[expletive]’ who had accused Hamer and other Rangers of abusing him near Rio Grande City. Hamer warned Canales to stop collecting cases of Ranger abuse, threatening, ‘If you don’t stop that you are going to get hurt.’

Source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/03/31/how-highwaymen-whitewashes-frank-hamer-texas-rangers/

AND, according to one source : “the Hamer family were no fans of the classic Arthur Penn movie. I knew that they had been greatly hurt and angered by the unfair and malicious characterization of their father at the expense of romanticizing and glorifying the road killers known as Bonnie and Clyde.”

Source : https://deadline.com/2018/02/john-fusco-bonnie-and-clyde-frank-hamer-the-highwaymen-warren-beatty-paul-newman-robert-redford-kevin-costner-paul-newman-john-lee-hancock-1202286500/

The first source seems slightly negative but mostly neutral (law enforcement routinely maintains the “blue wall of silence,” not just Hamer), the second is quite negative (other parts of the source are more negative than the portion I excerpted), and the third is positive, verging on glowing.

Death Sentence by Ambush

As much as I can, I will try to be neutral so that you can decide for yourself. But, to be clear about my own biases, I have long thought that a cover-up happened (even with the open admission of an ambush, a murder by anyone’s standards.) (But I think the same regarding Lincoln, Huey Long, George Patton, and JFK. Frankly, I do not trust the government.)

Consider : “Common aggravating factors include: The defendant laid in wait (waited and ambushed) the victim.” Police do have “limited immunity” and so forth, but in a day and time where Officer Chauvin killed George Floyd by putting a knee on his neck (a dangerous move but arguably one not intended to cause death), if we had cell phone video footage of the B&C ambush, my guess is that we would at least see grand jury hearings come out of it.

Maybe the problem is that the event happened in 1934. And, I am left wondering, just how many people out there would turn back the clock to “the good ole days” given a chance. (Shudder.)

Let us be clear: Bonnie and Clyde were ruthless serial killers who “murdered at least nine police officers and four civilians.” [But, John Douglas, who founded the FBI BAU, would not coin the term “serial killer” for at least four more decades.]

Source : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_and_Clyde

Three Points

I am not painting Bonnie and Clyde as angels or “folk heroes.” That is not my point. (They were ruthless killers, no doubt about it.) More specifically, I have two points with this article : (1) to explore a REMARKABLE death chart of famous criminals killed by ambush by law enforcement (at least one of the law enforcement had threatened a state representative) and (2) to question the narrative that we have been given, one that is “fuzzy” from the outset.

And, if I had a hidden third point it would be this : to COMMEND officers such as Chief Maris Herold of the Boulder Police Department, as well as the members of her department, who were able to capture a dangerous murderer, a spree killer who had killed ten, without killing the suspect or any further loss of life. Without capture of suspects, our chances of identifying factors that precipitated the killings approach zero, at least any that are based on subsequent interviews or assessments.

AND, “due process” is a critically important pillar in our society. Ambushes on a country road on a spring morning are NOT due process.

OK : Four points!

Jeffrey Dahmer

Before we go any futher, the date here caught my eye. The position of the Sun is REMARKABLY close to that of the Jeffrey Dahmer natal chart (1 Gemini on May 21st). I will not duplicate that chart here or dig into it, presenting links instead. But, consider the possibility that 1 Gemini is malefic.

Death Chart

Similar to the Atlanta Shooter Chart and the Boulder CO Shooter Chart, this is a death chart and it has “the ruler of the eighth in the tenth.” In this case, the eighth house cusp is in Aquarius, and the modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus. Uranus is in the tenth house of this chart in Aries. This points out that the first Uranus return of this chart has occurred. Since Uranus is about “surprises” (and ambushes in murders), we consider it to be particularly important here. Maybe the passage of eighty four years, along with the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Botham Jean will give all of us hope that homicidal violence by “police officers” will be halted. Non-lethal means are available for many situations, but, except for tasers, are almost never used. That needs to change.

But, this is a death chart, and “ambush” is emphasized by the role of Uranus.

Edit : Somehow, the first time around, I missed that Uranus in this chart is in the “Anaretic Degree.” The Anaretic Degree indicates “fate” or “karma,” something that can no longer continue. A change must happen. Last year, in 2020, I wrote about this (March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic) about the time the “Toilet Paper Panic of 2020” was under way.

[Edit continues: ] As I think about this, both the ambush of B&C as well as Uranus leaving Aries (a bit more than eighty four years ago), I can see the “shift”: Bonnie and Clyde were slightly more modern (automatic weapons) versions of Old West bank robbers in an era where news via telegraphy had given way to broadcast radio and travel by passenger rail was giving way to the early incarnations of automobiles.

[Edit continues: ] Thinking about it, by the time the movie was made and released in 1968, radio was yielding to television, and automobiles had transformed from the Model A into the Mustang and Camaro (among others). Another shift was underway, and we knew it. Many thought the laser would be a weapon (rather than the foundation technology on which fiber optic based broadband), and many of us suspected that the replacement of the vacuum tube by transistor heralded another major shift. With smart phones and the Internet, another one has come to pass as Uranus traversed Aries again, entering Taurus again. The Pandemic has loosely replicated aspects of the Great Depression, and, collectively, we continue to struggle against these circumstances. Is World War III waiting for us?

Rectification and Timing

Timing is in question in this chart. Apparently, the shooters (law enforcement) waited TWO HOURS before any transport of the two people they shot was attempted. Why? Service times by ambulances in urban areas by the late twentieth century that exceeded eleven minutes were considered “long.” Granted, this was rural Northern Louisiana in 1934, but TWO HOURS? What was going on? Were the “lawmen” waiting for the mortally wounded to die a lingering death so that all possibility of testimony in subsequent hearings would be eradicated?

In modern settings, that alone would be murder. In many (most?) jurisdictions, once deadly force has been used, and once the threat has been neutralized (remember, Bonnie and Clyde did not fire even a SINGLE shot!), a duty to render aid becomes in force. (This is not true in ALL jurisdictions.)

See, also : https://www.lexipol.com/resources/todays-tips/rendering-aid-after-use-of-deadly-force/

Rectification

Rectifying this chart has been difficult. Some reports claim that the ambush was “shortly after sunrise.” While that does put the Sun in the 12th house (of “self-undoing”), it is not a good chart for this. A later time, between 8 AM and 8:30 AM, is better. I call these charts #1 and #2

Another report claimed the ambush started near “9:15 AM.” I do not believe that either. By the time that chart was in play, the ambush was over. I call the 9:15 AM chart “Chart #3.”

A rectified chart for 9:15 AM, putting the time significantly earlier at 8:58, looks right. This is also labeled “Chart #3” though, arguably, this chart is “Chart #4.”

We will explore why chart #4 looks correct in more detail later. For now, this chart has (1) Venus conjunct the Part of Fatality (AND close to the top of the chart, the powerful “MC” position (Midheaven)); (2) Pluto in the 12th house near the ascendant (“angular”); and (3) (if this time is correct) Jupiter (growth, expansion) is on the 4th House Cusp (“IC,” the “bed,” grave, or final resting place) and (4) as mentioned previously, the ruler of the eighth in the tenth.

Here is the chart (in Horary format) filtered for the strongest aspects (most precise):

Sun and Moon (“the Lights“) are both PEREGRINE in this chart. Noel Tyl wrote : “When the Sun or Moon is peregrine, we have a core development issue focus: I like to say that the individual learns very soon in life that he or she is basically untethered.” In this sense, the Sun and Moon are excellent significators for Clyde (Sun) and Bonnie (Moon).

Peregrine planets are usually viewed as “thieves” (Bonnie and Clyde! Robbers!). A more enlightened view argues (as Tyl wrote) they are “untethered,” not quite connected to our culture or world. And that, too, was true of this pair.

Born in a different place and time, they might have lived entirely different lives. But, in the early twentieth century in the south, Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana, their destinies seem fixed, poor whites with little opportunity trapped by the Great Depression in “The South.” They were not Jean Valjean, but their circumstances did affect them.

Peregrine planets, the Lights no less, were their emblems.

Mystic Rectangle, Star of David, Kites, and Grand Trines

Solar Fire failed to find an obvious “Star of David” in this chart, something that disappoints me. It also did not detect a Thor’s Hammer in a recent full moon chart. I know this because Rick Levine of StarIQ did notice that Thor’s Hammer and commented on it. (I like his work.)

This version of the chart is filtered for Grand Trines, but it also shows the Kites and Star of David. For some people, this would have been an amazing opportunity (for things other than ambushes).

The “Star of David” pattern is rare. Winter Solstice of 2012 saw one many hours after perfection of the Solstice, and a few others have manifested since then (but not many). This chart has one, and it brings many planets “together” at the time of this event. Again, we would expect this to be benevolent. Bonnie Elizabeth Parker had written poetry, including a poem mentioning her own death in a manner similar to this.

Is this what she wanted with her short life? The fame has been enduring.

A Star of David (and almost always a Mystic Rectangle) brings Kites (“opportunity”) which, themselves, include Grand Trines. These are all part of the patterns we have discussed so far, so asking the question seems needless. But, “was this [somehow?] benevolent?”

If so, how? (Or, are we reading these patterns completely WRONG?)

Part of the Mystic Rectangle includes Astraea (law and law enforcement) which is opposite Mercury (motor vehicles, among other things).

Note that Jupiter at the 4th House cusp (“the grave”) is part of the MR.

Astraea (law and law enforcement) aspects six (6) objects AND the nodes (fate) and MC.

Mystic Rectangles are rare and generally treated as benevolent though an argument could be made that this one was malefic. Which do you think?

5th Harmonics

This chart has TWO golden yods. Those are rare, rare in the sense that a Mystic Rectangle or Star of David is rare, but this chart has two. We have seen an argument that they can be related to an “abuse of power.” Is this what we see here? One abuse of power by Bonnie and Clyde met by the abuse of power by an ambush by police?

One Golden Yod has Juno at its apex (trust and betrayal) and Sun and South Node (the “negative karma” of repeating the behavior of many lifetimes). (Did Clyde Barrow make a decision that led the pair to their deaths?)

The other has Pluto (death, especially by assassinations, especially by government agents of some kind, particularly “spies” but also police) at the apex and Saturn / Hygeia on one leg and Astraea (law and law enforcement) on the other leg. Law enforcement had a choice, also, at least the Golden Yod hints at that possibility.

7th Harmonics

At least THREE triangular patterns are present here, all built from septile variants. Did these events make any meaningful change in how law enforcement operated? (Given the threat to the state representative, I question that.) What are these 7th Harmonics of fate and karma telling us about POSSIBLE breakthrough thinking that could come from events like these.

Juno forms septile aspects in a triangular pattern with Moon / Vesta on one leg and Venus / Pallas on the other leg.

Again, we think this means that Bonnie Parker had another premonition or insight that her death was near. Was this a trip that she did not want to make, only resigning herself to it after Clyde insisted?

Horary Chart

In all fairness, this timing was picked because it “lit up” the horary indicators. We note that Moon with v/c (“nothing will come of this”) as was true in the 9/11 chart (World Trade Centers in New York City, September 11th of 2001).

We will not dig deeper, leaving that to the reader.

Here is a second horary variant of the chart:

For those who prefer a “karmic” analysis, we note the (tight!) connection between Mercury and the North Node (fate) and the trine between the South Node (also fate, but unfavorable as in repeating “old behavior”), Astraea (law and law enforcement), and the MC.

[Hamer] was officially credited with 53 kills.” While under the color of law, Hamer had killed at least fifty three people, more than three times as many as Bonnie and Clyde. The phrase “officially credited” offers a question: what was his true body count? (Keep in mind his threat to a state representative almost two decades earlier.) Did he have kills outside of those that would be sanctioned? (Such as politicians who would not “play ball”?)

Hamer killed many times, not just in “other lifetimes” but in this one as well.

Hamer was recruited by Lee Simmons. “[P]rison chief Lee Simmons reportedly promised [dying prison guard Joe Crowson] that all persons involved in the breakout would be hunted down and killed. All of them eventually were, except for Methvin, who preserved his life by setting up the ambush of Barrow and Parker.” (Same source.)

What about “due process”?

Then again, these were the times when the “Shawshank Redemption” was set.

(Are these situations any better today?)

Midpoints

Midpoints are “lit up” and numerous here. Particularly noticeable: Pluto is at the midpoint of Moon / Mars. This is arguably another “death chart” indicator. Pluto is also sesquiquadrate both Venus and Pallas. What could that mean? I think that, among other things, some banks may have used robberies by Bonnie and Clyde as a way to cover misdeeds such as embezzlement.

Regardless, the midpoint trees are “lit up.”

Final notes

While we have covered most of the major points in this chart for this event, much remains. Uranus at 29 Aries, can make a case that nothing could have changed these events or this outcome.

Any of the patterns, and certainly the 5th harmonic and 7th harmonic aspects, could be separate entries of their own. Birth charts for Bonnie Parker, Clyde Barrow, Frank Hamer, and the rest could each be separate entries. And what about the Sun being in the same position in this chart as in Jeffrey Dahmer’s?

Unless we come back to these topics and write more, and we will not rule that out, this is likely our final say on the topic. But, others could follow.

Denver Shootings at King Sooper #33 on 2021-03-22

Denver Shootings at King Sooper 2021-03-22

In our post about the Georgia Spa Killings of March 16, 2021, we stated in reference to the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern in the Vernal Equinox of 2021 (first day of Spring AND the Astrological New Year) that “Other Tragedies May Follow.”  Sadly, this has proven to be true: the “Denver Shootings at King Sooper #33” in Boulder, Colorado on March 22, 2021 are exactly the kind of event we feared.

Information is sketchy. We have no name for the shooter at this time and certainly no birth data.  (But, unconfirmed information is circulating.)  (Update: March 23rd @ 1248 CDT Plano TX : Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold has identified the suspect : “Al Aliwi Alissa,” 21, a Syrian-born man and resident of Arvada, Colorado  Birth Data : Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa’s date of birth has been reported as 4/17/1999. No birth time is available (yet), but we have proposed possible natal charts for Al Aliwi Alissa.)

Timing of events is missing; We are using 5:33 CDT (time of announcement on CBS News in Dallas) and treating the chart more like an horary (in reverse, like “Jeopardy”) with adjustments to Boulder, Colorado.

Update: Police Chief Maris Herold has provided useful timing that we will use for future analysis: (1) police arrived on the scene at approximately 2:40 PM MDT and (2) the suspect was taken into custody at 3:28 PM MDT.  Since we are receiving this information during a Moon v/c period (Moon in Cancer, so she “performeth somewhat” according to William Lilly.), we will wait on publishing any additional analysis (or analyses) until later.

An aside : Numerology: 2021-03-22 reduces to a nine (9) and disappears leaving the store #: Store #33!

To be certain, this chart does not easily give up its secrets. But, digging into it is worthwhile. We will first cover the key points, expand them, then provide the various filtered versions of the chart to support our analysis.

Key Points

The following points matter:
Like the Atlanta shooter chart, this is a death chart, and for the same reasons
– Asc is in the first three degrees of Virgo (“too early to tell”) and more information will be forthcoming, possibly after the moon changes signs (from its home in Cancer into Leo); BUT Regulus is on the ascendant, also, and that raises important issues about “avoiding revenge.”- Algol is conjunct MC of chart: among other things, Algol is about beheadings (literal) and “losing your head” (doing terrible things that ruin your life)
– Three objects are key in this chart: Mercury, Mars, and Vesta
– Uranus, Pluto, and the Nodes are also important, but they are part of a bigger picture, a worrisome configuration that extends beyond the events of this chart
Mercury / Vesta and the Nodes form a Grand Cross (Mars is part of it)
– A “Golden Yod” is present: two biquintile objects that quintile each other and have an apex planet; the legendary “abuse of power” is in play here
– A Hele is present (an ongoing Hele, and this is about politics more than the details of the shooting)
– Other aspects are also in play (particularly with Sun and Chiron) also

The Denver Shooter Chart is a Death Chart

The casual observer might say, “that’s obvious.” But, we mean this is a death chart in a technical sense. Here’s why:

The ruler of the 8th is in the 10th. The 8th house cusp of this chart is Aries, and the ruler of Aries (Mars) is in the 10th House (and this brings fame). THAT makes sense given that the chart is an ANNOUNCEMENT of the deaths.
However, at least some (if not all) of the shootings happened earlier, and that means MORE planets are in the 8th, possibly as many as the 8th House Stellium of the chart of the start of the Atlanta Shootings.

Those two facts (Ruler of the 8th in the 10th; 8th House Stellium) make this a death chart.

Ascendant (“Too Early to Tell”)

Asc is in the first three degrees of Virgo (“too early to tell”) and more information will be forthcoming, possibly after the moon changes signs (from its home in Cancer into Leo)
Given “considerations” used by Horary practitioners, particularly those that follow the work of William Lily, this chart is not “fit to be read.”
Practically speaking, that means the story will change. Facts have been concealed (probably by the police since this is an “ongoing investigation”), and our view of the events will likely undergo some changes later.
Regulus is at the ascendant. Regulus is ordinarily a beneficial (and powerful!) star that promises success “if revenge is avoided.” A certain individual has been identified as possibly being a shooter (we will withhold the name until later), and this particular individual has a history of attempting to engage in “revenge.” (Are we surprised where this led?) Update: (March 23rd @ 1424 CDT (Plano TX) : The shooter has been identified, and also had “revenge” issues, but different from the initial individual who was incorrectly singled out by unidentified internet sources.  Again, “too early to tell” at the time of the announcement on network television.)

Algol at Midheaven

Algol, the most malefic of fixed stars, is at Midheaven of the chart, the most powerful position.  We have written about Algol (“the ghoul”) and how malefic it is a number of times in the past, particularly with the Vernal Equinox of 2010.

Mercury, Mars, and Vesta

We already have explored Vesta in the recent Atlanta shooting analysis. We will say, here, that we note that a police officer was among the ten victims who were murdered.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

But, that is not the end of the story. Mercury is square Mars, one of the most malefic planetary aspects (the others are variants on Mars or Pluto). Again, like Algol at MC, that is a powerful pronouncement.

(Note that Mercury is semisquare Pluto, also!)

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

BUT, Mercury is opposite Vesta (“exact,” meaning less than a degree and “partile”); Vesta squares Mars also; the three form a T-Square.
But, when is a T-Square not a T-Square? The answer is “when it is part of a Grand Cross.” In this case, the nodes are in play with Mars applying to a conjunction with the North Node (and, therefore, opposite the South Node). Include the nodes, and we have a Grand Cross in play.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

Uranus, Pluto, and the Nodes

We could stop and have a successful analysis of this chart. But, as is popular to say among late night advertisers, “but wait, there’s more!” And, there is.
Uranus is sesquiquadrate the South Node and Pluto is sesquiquadrate the North Node. This is the most disturbing aspect of the chart since, similar to the Thor’s Hammer in the Vernal Equinox, it is a longer term kind of effect, signaling a series of problems involving death and violence during this period.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

We may see a rash of shooters, mixed in with weather disasters and other devastating events.

Golden Yod (5th Harmonic)

A Golden Yod is present. This SHOULD be a benevolent pattern, but it gives an enormous amount of power (and encourages abuse of power). Adolf Hitler had one of these in his birth chart. More specifically, Moon and Uranus form a Golden Yod with the South Node at the Apex.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

In Karmic terms, this shooter has participated in similar dramas for many lifetimes. So far, he has not learned the lesson.

Hele

A hele is present. This will be politicized, just as the Atlanta Shootings has been.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

Expect “mainstream media” to use these deaths as fodder for their narrative.

Midpoints

We will not explore those here (at this time).

But here is the midpoints version.

Georgia Spa Killings (2021 Atlanta spa shootings) 2021-03-16

Georgia Spa Killings (2021 Atlanta spa shootings) 2021-03-16

With the advent of a Vernal Equinox dominated by a Thor’s Hammer pattern (which we have discussed many times), and the Mass Murder in Atlanta on March 16th of 2021, we will present a (preliminary) analysis of the events based on the information that we have available.  (However, as of this writing, we have no birth data for the shooter.)

Time of Chart

Most interesting is that the available time information is far more accurate than such data has been in the past.  Assuming that the reports have been truthful (and we have no reason to believe otherwise), we can construct charts for analysis.

Importance of Vesta in this Chart

We note that the Solar Maps United States Map on the Vernal Equinox shows a Pallas line activation of Atlanta although Pallas is not ordinarily malefic.  Our preliminary analysis interpreted the role of Vesta in the Thor’s Hammer as affecting collectives such as police and nurses. 

HOWEVER, Vesta is well known as being symbolic of prostitution and prostitutes, particularly those individuals who engage in the behavior for reasons that are arguably noble. (What does that mean?  Historically, the “Vestal Virgins” sometimes engaged in prostitution to bring in resources for their temples.  At least one news report has made it clear that one of the victims who worked in that trade was a single mother using the money to support her children.)

See. also : USA Today: Hyun Jung Grant, killed in Atlanta shootings, was a ‘loving’ single mom who lived for her sons.

Other Tragedies May Follow

Our work invariably lacks a level of precision that so many in our field seek.  The event occurred on March 16th, ahead of the Vernal Equinox.  We note that (ominously) this could signal “more to come” in terms of tragedies during this period.

Update: (March 23rd of 2021, 1448 CDT Plano TX) This article was written about 48 hours prior to the Boulder, Colorado King Sooper Murders by Al Aliwi Alissa.

Consider the following : 2010 had a particularly malefic Vernal Equinox (see: Vernal Equinox 2010: A Bad Moon a Risin’) We thought that chart signaled the WVA Coal Mine Explosion April 5, 2010, and that we were “done” when that horrific tragedy occurred. But that assumption was wrong. (AND, the WVA Coal Mine Explosion ALSO had a Thor’s Hammer pattern ((“God’s Fist” or “Quadriform”).)   A devastating airplane crash followed that took hundreds of lives.

Both of these were preliminary events, “warmups” if you will, for the main event.  With the entry of the Sun into Taurus (where Hitler’s Sun and Biden’s Moon are located, conjunct at the beginning of the sign), the Deepwater Horizon disaster arrived.

I provide this retrospective to make a point: as heartrending are the deaths from this rampage, something worse could be lurking, something that may not greet us for as far out as April 20th (or a few days beyond).

Yods in the Chart : Important Decisions are Tied to this Event

With that warning in mind, here is the chart based on the data currently available from Wikipedia: “2021 Atlanta spa shootings

The first version of the chart we present is filtered for yods.  Two yods are present, and the eighth house (the “death house”) has a stellium (a cluster of planets which functions as a punctuation mark).  The eighth house (and twelfth and fourth house cusp) often features prominently in death charts.

Death Charts and Water Sign Houses

A bit of a side issue : [Skip this if the “details” do not interest you.]

The implication of these three (water sign) houses in death charts is curious: it implies that people tend to die (or events occur associated with death) especially at three times:

  1. shortly past Sunrise (12th House Sun, quite LITERALLY “The House of the Rising Sun“), especially alcohol, drugs, and institutionalized individuals “discovered” as dead);
  2. in the latter part of the afternoon (8th house Sun), about 4 PM or 5 PM (rush hour! But, the eighth house pattern existed CENTURIES before automobiles), or
  3. some time close to midnight (again, often this is discovery by a night shift nurse and, again, modern hospitals are predated by 4th house cusp issues by centuries).

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

The Eighth House Stellium

We note that the ruler of the 8th (Neptune) is in the eighth. (The 8th house cusp in this chart is in Pisces where Neptune, Venus, Sun, Chiron, and Ceres are located. the stellium (cluster) of planets making a “statement.”)

Ruler of the Tenth in the Eighth

The ruler of the tenth (Venus ruling a Taurus midheaven) is also in the eighth.  We see the ruler of the 10th House in the 8th, a quality that some have associated with “fame in death,” meaning people who are often otherwise ordinary suddenly become famous as a result of their death.  One article describes charts similar to this (Leo Ascendant, Venus in Pisces in the 8th house and ruler of the 10th) and says this : “As Venus is planet of Service and Devotion, and as it is in the highest dignity, it shows someone who is in service of those people who are going through turmoil in life, like abused women or children.

12th House Ruler Near MC and apply to Conjunction to Uranus

Neptune is also the natural ruler of the 12th house.  In this case, the ruler of the 12th is the Moon, located in the 9th near the midheaven and applying to a conjunction with Uranus in Taurus.  (Unexpected events, typically explosions or electrical problems, but obviously in this case the “surprise” of the ambush by the shooter.)

Yods : Critical Decisions

Two (2) yods are present in this chart, and they both represent a set of critical decisions, two independent sets of critical decisions.

The Yod with Vesta at Apex

One yod is tied to Vesta.  (Yods are about DECISIONS, a fork in the road that often changes the destiny of someone for the remainder of their life.)  Since we have identified that Vesta represents the victims (as a collective), we interpret this Yod as a decision made by one or more of the victims (or potential victims who lived).

Did Someone Call in Sick?

A question immediately arises: did someone “call in sick” on this date, decide to not go into work (and that saved their life)?  Did someone else decide to go into work to “cover,” resulting in loss of life?  An important decision of some kind was in play here for the victims.  While the 8th house stellium seems “fated,” the yods hint that choices were available (even if they seemed trivial at the time though, in reality, “life or death”).

Edgar Cayce and the Elevator : “I’ll Take the Next One”

One way to understand this particular yod in this particular situation involves an old story about Edgar Cayce that has circulated for many years (and may, or may not, be true): Edgar Cayce once had an elevator door open in front of him.  Cayce was well known for his ability to see someone’s “aura.”  As he looked into the crowded elevator, almost no one had an aura of any kind (or they were black, dark, and fading quickly).  Cayce declined the invitation, and the elevator malfunctioned after the doors closed.  Everyone on the elevator plunged to their death.

We suspect someone “called in sick” to their work at the spa on this date.  If so, that decision saved their life.  Conversely, someone else may have decided to “go in” to make “a little extra money.”  That decision, under these circumstances, cost them their lives.

Karma: Did the Group Make a Sacrifice at a Karmic Level to Make an Important Statement?

I tend to dislike analyses that use “karma” to “explain” things because “karma” can explain anything and support any viewpoint.  But, in this case, an argument can be made that this group of victims, at a karmic level, chose to make this sacrifice to make an important point : changes need to be made.  What changes?  That is an open question.

The Yod with Hygeia at Apex

Another yod has Hygeia (“health and healthcare”) at the apex.  Did something “go wrong” in the shooter’s recent “treatment”?  (He had recently been in “treatment” for sex addiction.  Did it fail?  What went wrong?  What important decisions were in play? Did someone in the treatment setting make a decision in the treatment of the shooter that precipitated this tragedy?  If so, what changes need to be made regarding such treatment?)

Some “counselors” are ABUSIVE to their clients in the name of so-called “treatment.”  If that happened here, setting in motions these events, then that needs to COME OUT!

Except for a Square Key, other patterns are unremarkable or absent, as is true for both 5th Harmonics and 7th Harmonics.  None of this was about brilliant insights or “learning” through Karma leading to breakthrough insights EXCEPT the Square Key.  The Square Key will not produce brilliant insights, but it does contain the potential for “lessons learned” and a need for changes.

But, what changes?  Is this a hate crime?  That is being debated.  Is this really about addiction?  What about the people working in these settings?  What can be done for them?  Should we decriminalize prostitution?  Or would that “make things worse,” as some have claimed.

Again, “what changes”?

The Square Key : Lessons to be Learned

Here is the Square Key version of the chart:

While almost NONE of the Square Key involves the 8th house planets (death, and the MANY people who died), VESTA is HIGHLY ACTIVATED! (Yet another punctuation mark!)

A Shift in Mindset is Required

The question faces us again, pounding us: “what changes”?  My guess is that barking about “identity politics” and “gun control” will NOT solve the problem or address the underlying issues. A shift in mind set is almost certainly required, and the application of the Moon to Uranus near MC suggests that as well.

Mental Health, Sex Workers, and Similar Core Issues

How we think about mental health, how we address sex workers and the sex trade, and issues that none of us may have considered (yet!) are closer to the heart of the issue.  If we buy into the distractions, if we buy into the “head fake,” then the lessons will repeat.

The Horary Chart : What Question is this Event Asking?

Last, we present the horary version of the chart, as if we “asked a question” at the time.  Oddly, this is a bit like an astrology version of “Jeopardy” : what is the question here?  (We present the horary version of the event and then WORK BACKWARDS to the question.)

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

Without digging deep into the horary version of the chart, we note that Astraea (law and justice) was opposite the Part of Fatality.  This begs a different question: what role did law enforcement (and our criminal justice system) play in the deaths of the victims here?

We receive a strong “hint” here to look at the legal system and how it interacts with members of the sex trade economy.

Many questions remain open.  Maybe the time to ask them has arrived.

Many remain to be identified, a shift in mindset required.

Until then, the “House of the Rising Sun” will remain the “ruin of many a poor” person.

Death of Rush Limbaugh, 2021-02-17 (time uncertain)

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A bit of internet searching does not reveal a clear time of death for Rush Limbaugh.  However, at the time of recent searches (2021-02-18), the oldest news stories were posted near 11:30 AM.  Based on that time (11:30 AM CST), we adjust the chart to be at the time of Moonrise, placing the Moon into an angular position (and entry into twelfth house).

If we interpret this chart, what does it mean?  Mr. Limbaugh’s death is on the same day as the perfection of the first Saturn square Uranus aspect of the three occurring in 2021/2022.  That, by itself, is a “statement,” and a loud one.  Mr. Limbaugh’s death heralds the beginning of a new era, one that will be with us for a minimum of twenty years (until the next Saturn square Uranus sequence, or possibly as soon as the coming Saturn / Uranus conjunction in 2032 (Jun 28 2032 6:03:05 am (CST +6:00))).

Stated differently, anybody who believes that the death of Rush Limbaugh will silence his messages and what he represented will be “in for a surprise” when the next generation of his thoughts emerges.  And, it will.

With a history of certain kinds of events involving an angular planet, particularly an angular Moon, we have set the Moon at the ascendant and produced the following chart as a “best guess” for the time of death of Rush Limbaugh.  (We do not think it is later.  Time of death could be earlier.  Families often pause before making announcements.)

This chart puts Moon on ascendant and Pluto at midheaven.  We believe this is the correct chart, or within a half an hour of actual time.  This time also puts the Moon within a degree of square to natal Venus, an aspect that is slightly separating.

Here is the “basic” or “beginner” version of the chart with the ongoing Grand Cross of Vesta-Neptune-Nodes highlighted:

Here is the “Horary” version of the same chart, providing aspects to the Moon and dominant aspects (almost all of which are part of the aforementioned Grand Cross):

The Arabic Parts list is interesting.  Parts of Friends, Spirit, Faith, Daughters, Sons, and Inheritances.  Those all seem appropriate given the circumstances.

We note that the following recent analysis applies here also:

We will have more to say later.

Vesta Opposite Neptune

Vesta opposite Neptune is a theme for 2021 (from November, 2020 through July, 2021) and shows in a number of charts (this is an update/ edit done March 25th of 2021; the Vernal Equinox, Atlanta Shooter, and Boulder Shooter events (and the Boulder Shooter Natal Chart) have happened; all had Vesta as an important component).

We list, here, Vesta opposite Neptune periods from 2000 to 2070. Note: these come in clusters followed by no similar oppositions for roughly three to five years. The events are neither rare nor particularly common; we would call them “intermediate.”

Sun Sextile Saturn (1) (2020-03-19)

Grand Conjunction versus the Anaretic Sextile Prior to Vernal Equinox

Many other astrologers are focused on the “Grand Conjunction” that happens at the end of this year.  Those happen every twenty years, and I have no doubt that they are important.  However, I think I have found something even more rare and even more important.  The aspect has been perfecting as I have researched and am writing this article.  I call it (full name) “Anaretic Sextile Prior to Vernal Equinox.”  For sake of brevity, we will just call it the “Anaretic Sextile” even though other similar aspects exist.  (Otherwise, “Grand Conjunction” will win this face-off just because it is easier to pronounce.)

What Makes It Special?

What makes it special? First of all, it is far more rare.  The last one appears to have happened in 1961.  The next one happens in 2167.  And a search from 1000 AD to 2500 AD yields only nine (9) similar occurences.  NINE occurrences across 1,500 years.  Across 1,500 years, the Anaretic Sextile appears to have happened nine times, a maximum of nine times (and maybe not that much).

Some of you say: so what?  Many things are rare.  But that does not make them important.  But, as I wrote in my previous article (March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic), this aspect is important for several reasons (which I repeat here):

  1. The five point stellium is obvious and does not differ significantly for the charts of entry of Sun into the anaretic degree (the entire focus of this entry) for charts for New York, Los Angeles, or Plano (my location). And, none of the regular patterns we look at (T-Square, Grand Trine, Grand Cross, etc.) are present in these charts.
  2. The most important thing is that BOTH the Sun AND Saturn are in anaretic degrees during this period.  (That is unusual.)  Specifically, the Sun is in the anaretic degree of Pisces (possibly the most powerful of all anaretic degrees since it is truly about endings) and Saturn is in the anaretic degree of Capricorn (its home!).  Saturn MUST make a statement of some kind before it leaves home.  And the Sun is in the same position as we close out one astrological year and start another.
  3. A triangular fifth harmonic pattern exists.  I identify this will little commentary, preferring that others reblog my work and add their own commentary.
  4. A triangular seventh harmonic pattern exists.  Again, I offer little commentary for the same reason as previous.
  5. I offer a number of maps.  While all are interesting to some greater or lesser degree, only three are truly compelling(1) Western Canada (which places both Saturn and Pluto on the Fourth House Cusp, sometimes called either the “final resting place” or, more explicitly, “the grave”); (2) China (and that would seem obvious, but seeing the astrological maps confirming it is noteworthy) and (3) the UK (again, obvious based on what is happening there but, again, seeing the astrological maps confirming it is noteworthy).
  6. The other maps DO have stories to tell, just not quite as much as Canada / China / UK.
  7. I think this set of charts might tell us more about what happening than the Vernal Equinox charts..  (But, the Vernal Equinox charts, via the Thor’s Hammer pattern, hint that some serious “unrest” could be facing us.)

Please do keep in mind that much of this is “higher order” and easy to miss.  But, from an astrological point of view, the change the Coronavirus is bringing (Saturn is a tough taskmaster!) fits with this aspect, the Anaretic Sextile.

What Does it Mean for Me?

I have not (yet) explored the other eight occurrences to determine any other similarities of their configurations.  Since the perfection of the aspect is now past (by twenty eight (28) minutes of clock time as I write this, with the Coronavirus Pandemic exploding and thunderstorms rolling in, part of the same group of storms that produced hail and tornadoes here in Texas last night), it cannot be used in any “electional” sense.  However, it can be used as a diagnostic, if individuals are willing to look back at their activities on this Thursday evening from 6:49 PM CDT until 10:49 PM CDT, but particularly within a few minutes of 6:49 CDT.

If you must know, this tiny sliver of time, properly scrutinized, can give you a glimpse into either (1) your “true calling” or (2) “you destiny” or (3) both.  Remember the scene from “Last Crusade” where the old Templar said, “Choose wisely”?

Does this happen much?  (The Anaretic Sextile, not the Templar scene)

Not much.  As mentioned earlier, I ran a search on Sun Sextile Saturn, Sun in Pisces and Saturn in Capricorn.  Many of the “matches” are not really matches.  True matches would be sometime between March 18th and March 22.  I have not made the effort to winnow the list down further.

As Columbo Would Say

As Columbo would say, “just one more thing.”  A similar followup aspect will happen again on November 19th of this year.  To be certain, it will be different.  But, no question about it, it is a followup version.   Maybe the time to start planning for it is NOW.

Seven Point Stellium

However, I do have more than one thing to add.  First, if you count Pallas in Capricorn and Ceres in Capricorn, this is a Seven Point Stellium!  To say the least, those tend to be rare, also.  (We filter for the stellium in the above chart.)

But Wait!  There’s More

Familiar with the late night television infomercial line, “but wait, there’s more”?  It applies here.  Remember the Thor’s Hammer we mentioned in “Vernal Equinox of 2020“?  Well, guess what?  Vesta on one leg, remember that?  Well, Vesta is anaretic in this chart, also. (We filter for the Thor’s Hammer in the chart below.)

Let us be clear: the asteroids are trying to tell us something.  Sometimes they simply duplicate what the planets are saying.  But, in this case, they add important nuances to the message.

A Few Predictions that do not require astrology (2017 et seq, Presidential Politics)

[Originally posted 5:31 AM CST November 8, 2016; minor edits on Feb 10th 2017]

3  Election Predictions

No Astrology Needed

Before we elect a new President here in the United States, facing the choice between Donald Trump (and his family, hereafter “Trump” as is popular) and Hillary Clinton (who is a package with Bill Clinton, the impeached former President, and their daughter), I would like to make a few predictions without astrology (and a bit of one with astrology).

  1.  Whoever is elected will face impeachment, though different reasons apply.If Hillary is elected, the same kind of conduct that has characterized the Clintons in the White House before (email scandals, Bill’s sexual predation, etc.) will continue and impeachment proceedings will be launched.If Donald is elected, his various comments (such as the “locker room talk”) and past actions (such as the Trump Casino boondoggle) will form the basis of investigations and, again, impeachment proceedings will begin.Whether these impeachment proceedings will happen in 2017 or 2019 requires further analysis.
  2. Obama inherited a financial mess from George Bush consequent to the unnecessary war in Iraq (probably to help make the cronies of the Bush family wealthy but excused by the events of 9/11, sort of, as we went hunting for “weapons of mass destruction”), and Obama’s continued incompetence has NOT healed the economy despite all the rhetoric he is pushing.A particularly bad “crash” is facing us after a dishwater tepid “recovery” and whoever comes into office will be facing that financial crisis.  But, to some degree, a bit of a coverup will be done to give Obama a chance to save face.
  3. In order to cure #2, the incumbent will have little choice but to pursue a “hot” war (tanks and soldiers and battlefields, and as opposed to a “cold” war using spies and diplomacy).This will probably be a middle east war, will probably involve ISIS or some similar entity, and will probably have a precipitating event similar to 9/11 (and “intelligence failures” will be covered up again, just like what happened years ago with Pearl Harbor).

I think any sufficiently astute observer of 20th Century history, and early 21st Century history, can easily piece together what I am saying here.

A Wee Bit of Astrology Needed

[If you have not read our August 2015 analysis of the election, you might want to do so.]

Now the part that requires a bit more analysis, and I tend to rely on astrology here:

If Trump is elected, we will move into a “hot war.”  But if the Clintons go back in (and, as of this writing, the indicators are that the Clinton branch of the Bush-Clinton machinery is likely to be back in the White House), then we will go into a “*HOT* war.”  This war might be the first one to involve nukes since World War II.

(Might it be “Armageddon”?  Let’s hope not!)

Mars and Pluto

Why?  What astrology supports a “hot war” regardless of which one is elected?  The answer is that *BOTH* of them have Mars (War) in Leo (Presidents and Kings) AND Pluto (Annihilation, Nukes, Spies, Assassinations) in Leo (Presidents and Kings).

However, Hillary has these CONJUNCT (highly amplified and focused) whereas Donald merely has them in the same sector (bad enough!).  This deserves a separate, detailed article later, but election day is at hand (and the time is not  available to do this kind of detailed analysis).

In either case, the entry of Mars into Aquarius (opposing, ultimately, both the Mars and Pluto of BOTH candidates) marks the coming of the event that precipitates the war.

Strange Bedfellows

One more prediction, part astrology (based on Mars/Pluto) and part not: do not be surprised at all for the one who is NOT the incumbent to become a supporter of the one who IS the incumbent, particularly in this matter of the “hot war.”  Both have Mars/Pluto in Leo, and politics does make strange bedfellows.

Post Script:  (a rant)

Regarding “Armageddon”: I am not a Bible-thumper, but the Christian Bible does have some valid points from a metaphysical perspective, or at least that is my opinion.  As is true for many of us in “The South” (of the United States), I am from a Christian heritage and respect those teachings as much as I can but I cannot ignore certain scientific challenges (example: the idea of a “literal” virgin birth) and historical ideas that have long been concealed but is now coming to light.

Zeitgeist

What might those historical ideas be?  I think that Zeitgeist the Movie has some valid points.   (I am referring to the roughly the first thirty minutes of the movie, specifically but NOT necessarily the later parts of the movie.  (As always, you will have to decide for yourself.))  Let’s face it, astrology is woven all through the original Christian mythos, and 2,000 years of attempting to purge it has simply failed, as censorship inevitably does.

Persecution of Prometheus

What really irritates me the most about the Christian ideology is the conversion of Prometheus, a hero in the Greek mythology who brought the gift of fire (and light and enlightenment and the source of the “Olympic Torch”) to the humans from the Olympian gods into the “fallen angel” named “Lucifer” and an obvious villain in the Christian story.

Frankly, that stinks!  SHAME on whoever did that!  Prometheus is the ancient emblem of our ability to innovate and create art and technology.  But I suppose it is precedent for our collective tendency to sometimes villify people (or ideals) who are truly heroes!

Whoever did that nasty deed was the enemy of independent people who choose to think for themselves, outside the guidelines of the thought police.

Temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone

Do you like Lucifer the Television Show?  I do!  He makes great points: his power stems, almost completely, from his ability to tempt.  Were it not for temptation, he would have no power.  But, then again, neither would any of the advertising on lamestream media.

But, let us be clear: temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone.  In the crucible of the misery that results from our own bad choices, temptation leads us down a road that transforms us either by our death (literally! as in from alcohol or drug overdoses) or that metaphorically “kills” the old self leaving someone new, as was true with Saul / Paul.

Being a “message bearer” is a dangerous job.  The Titans rejected Prometheus after he liberated Zeus (Jupiter, and higher order thought) from Kronos (Saturn, and the bonds and the exoskeleton of “how we have always done things”).  He was welcomed by Zeus into Olympus and did well there until he gave fire (light, reasoning, insight) to the humans.  Then he was kicked out of Olympus.

But, we humans had to commit the same error as the Gods.  As part of the price of learning to reason and have insight, Prometheus exposed the power of Temptation to humans, so we showed our collective gratitude by renaming Prometheus into Lucifer and sending him to Hell (also known as “casting him into the darkness”).

If Prometheus could speak directly to the typical “Christians” and the Christian Power Structure, he would probably say this: “O why dost though persecute me so?”

I bet they might answer thus: because it is just too tempting.

2012 Revisited: A Messy and Close Election

Edit: [late on 2016 November 08, near 6 PM CST]  “We also recommend that you read this analysis by Katie Turner over at Know Your Vibes Astrology.  It is a good analysis.  However, I would offer that I think, long term, that Hillary is by far the more dangerous of the two.  (It has to do with this issue of a “hot war” I wrote about earlier.  Only time will tell.  At an intuitive level, without any deep analysis, I tend to agree also with the others that, whoever goes in, we are almost certainly looking at a one term president, similar to the Jimmy Carter situation of the late 1970’s.)

Here is our analysis of the 2012 election.  It was also extremely close and extremely messy and difficult to predict.  But, we wrote these words:  “But, Obama has the Moon conjunct Mercury, a bit more favorable as far as aspects go.  We think he will win.”  This time we think Hillary will win.  But, again, it will be both close and messy.  And, we expect impeachment proceedings to be at least attempted if not completed.”

Neptune Conjunct South Node: Will They Live Long Enough to be Impeached?

Edit #2 November 8th [about 6:35 CST]:  Tara Greene has posted “You’ve never seen this, Neptune conjunct Pisces South Node.” So, what was going on in 1849?  This was.  More specifically, United States President Zachary Taylor took office on March 4, 1849.  “Taylor’s status as a national hero as a result of his victories in the Mexican-American War won him election to the White House despite his vague political beliefs.”  (Almost sounds like Donald Trump a bit, doesn’t it?)

But, more disturbing, is his death not even two years into the term: “Taylor died suddenly of a stomach-related illness in July 1850, so had little impact on the sectional divide that led to civil war a decade later.”  Sworn in in March of 1849 (Pisces) and dead by July of 1850 (Cancer).

Therefore, we modify our #1 impeachment prediction based on the astrological consideration of Neptune conjunct South Node: the impeachment proceedings will be attempted (or completed) given that the incumbent lives long enough for this to occur.  (And, based on what happened to the POTUS the LAST time we had the Neptune / South Node aspect, we are concerned regarding some kind of “repeat” could occur.  Maybe the big question is actually who will be Vice President?)

In Memory of Cainer

May 19, 2016 at 6:30 am | Posted in 2016, Astrology, BadDays, Diamonds, Events, FamousPeople, Hard Rectangle, Kite, NatalChartAnalysis, Patterns, Rosetta, Special Days, Square Key, Stretched Pentagrams | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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.”

New Years 2016 (Thor’s Hammer Key)

New Years 2016 (Thor’s Hammer Key)

Let us first address, if not dispense with, a common topic: when does “New Years” occur?  The answer is it occurs once per time zone, with as many occurrences as there are time zones.  That begs the question: how many time zones are there?  A quick Bing search yields this answer: “There are 40 unique time zones based on UTC offset. However there are 198 time zones abbreviations around the world, including daylight saving time zones.”

Needless to say, we are not doing forty charts (we will leave that chore to others to address time zones that we do not), and we are certainly not doing 198 (though it might be an interesting topic to revisit, especially at shifts from Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time and back).  If you want to look up the offsets for your particular time zone, click here.  See, also: this list of time zone offsets.

So, the message is simple: EACH time zone has its own “personal” chart for the New Year, each with a similar (but slightly different) message.  This year, the chart for Melbourne / Tokyo and the Pacific Rim are is particularly outstanding, meaning we expect a strong calendar year for this region.  (Especially economic prosperity as long as people in the region remember to help those who are less fortunate than themselves.)

Please also keep in mind that this is only one of several “New Years.”  Another is the Chinese New Year in February (only a few days past a Cross Quarter Day this year!), and another is the Astrological New Year (Vernal Equinox).

We also recommend a few other things: (1) if you can, find last year’s “New Year’s Resolution” list and review it.  Did you actually accomplish anything?  What is different?  (2) Use a service to send this year’s list (and maybe old ones) to yourself sometime in late 2016 (We like late October because it provides enough to REALLY think about what you want for next year, 2017 in this case.  As far as these services go, we like FutureMe.org  We have no financial or other interest in that site, we just like it.

You may find it useful to make a list of what you DID accomplish.  And another useful exercise is to make a list of what you are grateful for.  Maybe you have it better than you realize.

If you review those notes in late October, you can do a “test run” on your “resolutions” in November.  This assumes you actually want to change or actually want to accomplish something.  If you are just spouting rhetoric, then no need to follow this.  After you fail in November (and you will, and the pain of Scorpio will teach you lessons), you can revise your unrealistic expectations for ANOTHER test in December.  Dump what does not work.  Then, after two “trial runs,” put it into gear in January.  If you fail again in January, then give up.  You are too unrealistic and disconnected from your true self to really understand what you really want and what you are really capable of doing.  Reality testing is important here, and Capricorn is very, very good at helping with that.

That said, if the time has passed for you to use our methods of testing and tuning resolutions for 2016, then make a resolution to send yourself a reminder (using a service like FutureMe) and accomplish that resolution immediately!

Speaking of last year’s resolutions and plans, here is the chart for New Years 2014/2015.  2015 had amazing potential if you believe what that chart had to offer.  How did you use it?  Did you make the year “count,” or did you waste your opportunities?

Some of you may think that we may sound like we are chastising you, but you need to keep this in mind: as an Astrologer we are Father Time’s (more precisely, Saturn’s or Kronos’) agent.  We are just doing our job!

Most of the charts for New Years 2015 / 2016 have a pattern present that we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key” (or a “God’s Fist Key,” if you prefer that terminology).  This pattern is composed of TWO interlinked Thor’s Hammer patterns and provide a HUGE amount of energy to “get things done” but also contains a danger of anger and violence.

Since Star Wars Episode VII is currently (December 2015) playing in theaters, we will borrow language from the Star Wars universe: “you will be tempted by the Dark Side of the force.”  Count on that this year.  Going into ANY situation unprepared for this possibility is a very, VERY bad idea this year.  2016, more than other years, is about being prepared, “getting things done,” and accomplishment.  (The numerologists, when they start talking about this, will confirm what I am saying: “2016” is a “9” year, and THAT is about COMPLETION.)

So, since it is a particularly large population center near the International Date Line and, therefore, one of the first New Year’s celebrations, we start with a chart set in Melbourne, Australia (AEST, UTC +10):

 2016-01-01 New Years Melbourne AUS (AEST) Thors Hammer Key[Click Image to Enlarge]

We see the Thor’s Hammer Key in play, Moon is approaching perfection of conjunction with Jupiter (a highly benevolent aspect), and Moon has not yet gone void of course (as it does in most other charts).  12th House is quite active, and people living in this region would benefit from addressing 12th house issues: helping those less fortunate than themselves, dealing with scams and frauds, drug and alcohol issues, poetry, lyrics, music, photography, and videography.  Maybe this is Melbourne’s year to become a film production center.  (Much of what we are saying applies to the “Pacific Rim” region, including Japan and Tokyo).  The remaining charts ALL contain a void of course moon EXCEPT Los Angeles, CA (where the moon is still “too early to tell”).

We present the chart for New Year’s in Moscow without comment except to note that we filtered for a T-Square that is also present.  (The same Thor’s Hammer Key pattern is in play, though.)

2016-01-01 Moscow (BAT) Thors Hammer Key

Next, we present the chart for London:

New York City (EST):

2016-01-01 New Years New York City (EST) Thors Hammer Key

Dallas (and Plano, our location as we publish these forecasts):

2016-01-01 New Years Dallas (CST) Thors Hammer Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

And, finally, Los Angeles CA (PST):

2016-01-01 New Years Los Angeles (PST) Thors Hammer Key[Click Image to Enlarge]

One more time: “get things done” and bring CLOSURE to major projects this year.  You will have special windows of opportunity that you will NEVER see again, and 2017 marks the beginning of a very, very different period.

An exploration of November 8, 2016

First of all, we note that this is a Cross-Quarter Day.  Specifically, it is precisely the day (astrologically) of Samhain, celebrated as Halloween on October 31st or the Day of the Dead on November 1st but more precisely at 15 Scorpio (November 8th).

You might want to review our (much earlier) page “Politicians of Interest.”

[Edit: November 8, 2016: See, also A Few Predictions….]

Based on this source, we are using 7 AM Washington DC for this chart:

Election 2016 (Horary Format)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The above chart is in “Horary” format (supporting what is sometimes called “traditional” analysis).  We note that the Moon is not yet void, but soon goes void for most of the remainder of the polling period.  (ANOTHER Moon v/c election!  Is someone in the government picking these times and dates on purpose for an astrological reason?)

For those who use asteroids:

Algol New Moon: Waco Biker Shootout

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.)

Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Hard Rectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.

Lunar Eclipse of April 2015 (Full Moon of April 2015)

We present the chart for the Lunar Eclipse of April 2015 (Full Moon of April 2015).  You may also wish to read Early April Patterns, Late March Patterns, and about the Solar Eclipse and Vernal Equinox of March 2015.  We first filter the chart to highlight squares, oppositions, and T-Squares:

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 T-Squares

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note enough squares and oppositions to “get things done.”  You will want to wrap up the growth oriented activities of the past two weeks by the time this Lunar Eclipse (and Full Moon culminates) so that you can shift your energies to “house cleaning” and discarding old projects that did not work after the culmination.  After the culmination of this FM, you will want to begin your “spring cleaning” if you have not already done so.  (In Australia, you would begin preparing for Winter.)

We also see a Grand Fire Trine, one of a series that has been happening and continues to happen.  While Grand Trines tend to bring stability, Grand Fire Trines tend to bring action, almost more like squares than trines.  This is a period when you can “get things done.”

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Grand Trine

[Click Image to Enlarge]

However, we do not find any kites, so this combination of patterns does not have the “luck” that we found in the Late March Patterns.  That window has closed, and this time we may have to “work” for our results a bit more.  But, we can still achieve good results if we are willing to work for them.

We also see another Focused Yod, quite similar to the variant seen in Early April Patterns (the day before):

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Focused Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As with all yods, this means we face a decision.  In many ways, Focused Yods are about working to achieve a result.  We have to first decide what we want and abandon the alternative path.  Having done this, we work and we can achieve.  This pattern echoes the patterns previously discussed.

More than one Yod is in play, and that tells us that we may be facing a number of important decisions at this time:

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Yods

[Click Image to Enlarge]

While one of the Yods, the Focused Yod contained within the Lunar Eclipse, is very much a short term Yod requiring a quick decision and “tactical” in nature, the other has Saturn at its apex and Hygeia and Astrea on each leg.  We have discussed this before, and refer you to that discussion in Late March Patterns.

We also find Rosettas present in this chart; experience shows that these tend to be indicative of a time of unstable or temporary alliances.  (This could be people you meet in a class that you will not see again in this lifetime.)

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Rosettas

[Click Image to Enlarge]

None of the Eclipse is included in this set of Rosettas (arguably four of them overlapping), and it indicates a separate set of issues surrounding the key issues of the eclipse.

Finally, we see a Square Key.  These tend to signify a time of mixed energies, including quincunx, square and trine, that can lead to learning important lessons at this time.

April 3rd of 2015, the day before the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon of April 2015), proves to be an active day in terms of patterns with a Focused Yod and Stretched Pentagram manifesting in the sky.

We note that a variant of this Focused Yod shows again during the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon of April 2015).  You may also want to compare this period of your life with the period surrounding the Stretched Pentagram of January 2013.

Southern and Western Ireland look particularly interesting; do not be surprised if some remarkable innovations come out of this part of Ireland this year.  We will go out on a limb and speculate that they may have something to do with innovations in manufacturing.

Here is the chart for Uranus Square Pluto in March of 2015:

Uranus Square Pluto 2015-03-16

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This chart has been filtered to show ONLY squares, and we note that Sun Square Pallas is also exact at this time.  You may also want to read about Uranus Square Pluto in December of 2014 and Uranus Square Pluto in November of 2013.  This major outer planet aspect precedes the Solar Eclipse of March 20th and the Vernal Equinox of 2015.  It also follows the Full Moon of March 5th.  (Maps other than U.S. can be found via this link.)

We note that this is the last of seven exact aspects in this series.  The aspect is associated with social upheaval, and the last aspect will be the “parting comments” of such current upheaval.  We expect most (or all) of the remainder of 2015 to be influence by this slow moving outer planet aspect.

Here is the World Map for this aspect:

For those who are interested, we have produced a Graphic Ephemeris for this aspect.  The setting is for 45 degrees, with “Mars out” transits.  (No inner planets.)  The dotted line in the chart represents this particular aspect (at 15 degrees).

The Mars aspects to Uranus and Pluto in April and May promise to bring some “exciting times.”  “Things could go boom” at certain points during this period.  (Again, note that this table of aspects does NOT include inner planets such as Sun, Mercury, or Venus.)

Here are the aspects of the Sun to the Uranus/Pluto square in a time map table:

We note that Sun conjoins Uranus and squares Pluto close to the point of the April Lunar Eclipse.

Here is the time map of Mercury in aspect to Uranus/Pluto:

Most interesting in this chart is the cluster of Libra Mercury aspects to Uranus/Pluto before and after the September/October retrograde period.

[We will have more to say about this in the days to come.]
