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

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

See, also, the following links:

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

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

Adam Lanza Natal Chart (No Birth Time)

(For more details, please also read the preliminary analysis.)

Here is the birth chart for Adam Lanza.

Adam has a Thor’s Hammer (aka “God’s Fist”) in his natal chart. (We will discuss this in more detail in the commentary below.)

Since birth time is unknown, we have cast his chart as Sun Conjunct Ascendant (Sun CONJ ASC).  Here is the chart:

Natal Chart, Birth time unknown.  Used Sun Conjnunct Ascendant

Natal Chart, Birth time unknown. Used Sun Conjnunct Ascendant

Natal Chart, Birth time unknown. Used Sun Conjunct Ascendant

We note that the Ascendant and Midheaven must be ignored in this chart, and the exact position of the Moon is unknown (just “early Capricorn”).  This chart has a LARGE number of squares and sesquiquadrates.  Indeed Venus (in Aries) has two squares and a sesquiquadrate!

(Update 12/15 @ 1445 CST, continued from above:)  We discussed the Thor’s Hammer earlier here and here.  Also known as the “Quadriform,” this pattern is also described here.)  Often associated with earthquakes and explosions, the Thor’s Hammer can be a very dangerous aspect.  In Adam’s case, Jupiter is the Apex Planet and has Venus on one side and BOTH Neptune and Uranus on the other side.  (Our name for four or more planets in a Thor’s Hammer pattern is “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  It is an amplified form of the already dangerous Thor’s Hammer.)

Jupiter is a great amplifier of things, and we suspect that any conflict Adam had with his mother or the school was hugely amplified by this Jupiter in a position to cause an “explosion” (gunshots, in this case).  We note that his Venus was highly afflicted in a number of ways, and come to an even stronger version of the conclusion that some kind of “atypical romance” may have been an important piece of the puzzle.

Uranus is associated with explosions, Jupiter in aspect with Uranus is associated with big explosions (or lotto winners), and this particular pattern is the most explosive of all.  (We have noted earlier that a major explosion happened on the date of Adam’s birth.)  Adam was, indeed, wired like a bomb waiting to explode.  (We are a bit surprised that he used guns instead of explosives.  Maybe it was because guns were easier to use than explosives.)

That said, we do not quite believe in “fate” but in “propensities.”  We bet that a large number of people were born on this date.  We suspect that a large number of them had one or two “bad days” this week. What could lead someone like Adam to choose to commit a massacre?

We still wonder what triggered Adam’s explosion.  Was he treated unfairly or falsely accused of something?  (We are asking a question, not making a statement.) SOMETHING triggered this disproportionate response.  What was it?

Whatever it was, it was disproportionate.  In researching this article, I came across this blog entry.  It strikes to the core of the issue.  And, here, the core of the issue is not guns.  The core of the issue is mental health.

I urge you to read it

That said, back to the astrological analysis.

As mentioned in the preliminary analysis, Adam had a Grand Earth Trine (ordinarily a marker of someone of great financial wealth) that was activated by the recent entry of Saturn into Scorpio.

  1. Saturn’s entry into Scorpio (October 6th and beyond) creates a kind of instability in his grand earth trine.
  2. Saturn semi-squared his Uranus / Neptune (and activated the Thor’s Hammer some time after October 6th).
  3. The “straw that broke the camel’s back” happened with the new moon of the 12th / 13th that squared his natal Mars.
  4. He acted at the time of his (nearby) personal new moon.

We stick with the idea that we wrote about 12 hours ago (about 2am locally) that we think something happened on the 12th or 13th (before the New Moon) that set in motion the events of this tragedy.

We have located two points that we think worthy of mention here:

  1. Jude Cowell points out that Mars (in Capricorn) recently transited Adam’s natal Uranus and Neptune.  This was almost certainly a major contributor as well.
  2. Over at AstroDispatch, the author points out that Pluto (in Capricorn) is conjunct (we think) Adam’s natal Moon.  This is a long-term high stress aspect.

We do not have a birth time to build an ascendant, but we are going to risk doing an analysis with a rectified chart (something we avoid).  We were going to set the birth time at 4:20 pm because that aligns the moon in the natal chart with the moon in the December 14th 9:18 am Double Yod Key (DYK) chart.

However, by moving the time to 2:50 pm, we move the ruler of the 10th into the 8th house.  (Gemini on the 10th, and Mercury on the 8th.)  This is a well-known marker of those who become famous in death, and it is not possible in all configurations but it is on this particular date of birth.  (JFK’s natal chart is a textbook example of this; he had Leo on the 10th and Sun in the 8th.  Of course, he was victim rather than perpetrator.  But, the point is that he became particularly famous in death, consequent to his assassination.)

This chart has Jupiter rising and in the 12th (the house of Self-Undoing) and Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the 8th house (house of Death).  Pluto (planet of death) is in the 3rd house (of children), and Mars (planet of violence and war) is in the 7th house (of relationships with others).  We think this chart is a very good candidate chart:

Adam Lanza (Ruler of 10th in 8th) 12-15-2012 4-03-48 PM

Our second choice (mentioned earlier) is the chart that aligns the Moon with the Moon in the Double Yod Key chart:

Adam Lanza (DYK Align, Thor) 12-15-2012 3-42-10 PM

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that the ascendant in this chart (24 Virgo) is trine Algol (26 Taurus), and that the Sun is in the 8th (death) house.  We have illustrated the Thor’s Hammer relationship in the chart.

We do note that we are reluctant to attempt rectification at all.  But, these are our best guesses.

Adam Lanza (Preliminary Analysis)

[A number of the search engines are behind and have not caught up with our most recent post on Adam Lanza.  There, we cast a natal chart and also attempt to rectify the chart.  It is a detailed extension of the remainder of this post.]

The Sandy Hook, CT school shooter has been identified as Adam Lanza, the younger son of Nancy J Lanza.  Nancy J Lanza, a single mother after a divorce some years earlier, was either a Kindergarten teacher or a teachers aid at the school.  We have addressed the timeline of the shooting in an earlier post and now specifically focus on Adam Lanza.

Current (12/15 @ 0143 CST) news reports describe Adam Lanza as a 20 year old suffering from an autism spectrum disorder (possibly Asperger’s Syndrome) and possibly a personality disorder.  We have his date of birth reported from multiple sources: April 22, 1992.  We do not have a time of birth, but (based on available reports) he was almost certainly born in either New Hampshire (less likely) or Connecticut (most likely).  We will use Sandy Hook as his birth place (although he may have been born in New Haven).

First, we would like to cover some other background.  We look at patterns on this blog, so we are interested in other events on that date (or “nearby”).



April 22 – Fuel that leaked into a sewer explodes in Guadalajara, Mexico; 215 are killed, 1,500 injured.


April 22Robin van Helsum – Dutch fraudster


April 19: Kristen French: Catholic schoolgirl murder victim killed by serial killer couple Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo.

Other Events:

Los Angeles Riots:

For other years, see here:

Finally, we observe noteworthy similarity between this shooter and Kip Kinkel.  Both had a Capricorn Moon; between them: (1) Suns are trine (Taurus / Virgo), (2) Venus’ are trine (Aries / Leo), and (3) Mars’ are trine (Scorpio / Pisces).

Differences are noteworthy as well.  (1) Kinkel did not have a grand trine.  (2) Kinkel’s moon clearly trined Algol (while Lanza’s almost certainly does not).  (3) Kinkel’s Neptune (Sadge) and Pluto (Libra) formed a yod in relation to Algol.  Yod’s are about decisions; Neptune is often about self-sacrifice; Pluto is about death.  Astrologically, Kinkel seemed to face an alternative of sacrificing himself (Neptune) or others (Pluto) and obviously chose the latter.  We are certain that Lanza faced choices that were significantly different (though he reached a remarkably similar conclusion).

(For Kip Kinkel’s birth date, click here.)

[Update: A few others have noted similarity to the birth chart of Adolf Hitler.  Sun and Moon are similar, but much of the rest of the chart is different.  We think Kinkel’s is a closer match when looking for similar charts and similar patterns.]

(We have written extensively about Algol elsewhere on this blog.  Moon conjunct Algol at the time of the Vernal Equinox in 2010 heralded a series of disasters, including a West Virginia coal mine explosion, that later culminated in the BP Deepwater Horizon accident less than a month later.  “Algol” is an arabic word that means “The Ghoul,” or the Cryptkeeper.)

A preliminary analysis shows that the Moon had to be in the first 15 degrees of Capricorn and applying to a conjunction of both Uranus and Neptune.  First of all, we note that about 1 person in 12 has a Capricorn Moon, but not 1 person in 12 becomes a mass murderer.  That said, Capricorn Moons are thought to often have some absence of compassion for others.  Oddly, this can make for GREAT leaders!  It can also make for mass murderers….  (My apologies to the 1:12 visitors who might be offended by that! 🙂 )

Saturn and Uranus were in mutual reception producing a kind of unpredictability that is difficult to describe.  (As we note above, a newsworthy powerful explosion happened on the date of Lanza’s birth.)

Venus squared both Uranus and Neptune.  We will address Venus Square Uranus momentarily.  Venus Square Neptune invariably produces false hopes and unjustified aspirations in all who are touched by it.  (All the daily astrologers give the same advice when Venus squares Neptune: “Do not sign any contracts.”)  Given the superb career performance of both the father and the older brother, if this son was indeed autistic, then chances are good that he was a disappointment to those close to him, except perhaps his mother.

Adam had a rather powerful Grand Earth Trine in his chart.  Arguments fly regarding the meaning of grand trines.  We consider them benevolent, but others see them as malevolent.  Almost all agree that “things” come easily to those who have them.  Had Adam been willing to accept his difficulties, chances are good that someone in his family would have picked him up each time he fell.  But, Venus square Uranus/Neptune left him determined to prove himself.  While that quality sounds admirable to most of us, that quality may have precipitated his downfall.

Indeed, he was a bit “beyond lucky” because he had a kite, rare configuration of a grand trine with another planet attached as a “head.”  The head of his kite was Mars in Pisces.  Though kites are ordinarily lucky, this is a difficult placement.  Mars in Pisces and Venus Square Uranus indicates a potentially strange and difficult series of experiences involving love and romance.

[Update (12/15 @ 1411 CST):  Upon further examination of the chart, we have decided that Mars is too far out of alignment to qualify for a Kite.  However, we have now found something far more ominous: a Thor’s Hammer.  We will address this in a new entry.]

We wonder if he was wounded, perhaps by a conflict between mother and a (potential?) prospect for romance, and if he felt that wound far more deeply than most.  (Or, alternatively, he may have been falsely accused of something he did not do and felt compelled to seek “justice.”)

Earth is often both stubborn and critical.  We suspect that he both gave and received criticism in amounts that were difficult for him to shoulder.

Without a birth time, we hesitate to speculate on what triggered his reaction on this date.  Our best guess is that Saturn, in Scorpio, was activating the planets of his grand trine (particularly if he had an “early” moon).  (If this outcome reflects Saturn in Scorpio, then we have a hunch that the chain of events that led to this outcome began on or about October 6th of this year.)  If the Saturn in Scorpio set up a potential “bomb” in his kite / grand trine / Thor’s hammer, what was the trigger that set him off?

Our best guess is that the Sadge New Moon on the 13th squared his Mars, and someone (we are not sure who) issued some kind of ultimatum.  Whatever happened on the 12th / 13th, whether or not it involved some (atypical?) romance, Adam Lanza decided that he had to take action.  And, when the Moon returned (or approached the return) to its natal place, a place sometimes of endings, he did just that.


(1) Names and DOB’s of victims; medical examiner says most of wounds inflicted by rifle (handguns only used twice):

Doctor H Wayne Carver :”All the wounds that I know of were caused by the long [rifle] weapon.

“I only did seven of the autopsies. The victims I had ranged from three to 11 wounds apiece and I only saw two of them with close range shooting.”

(2) Daily Mail has an interesting piece but I have detected at least one comment that is either in error or misleading: “He used two semi-automatic pistols, a Glock and Sig Sauer, and reportedly wiped out an entire classroom of young children.”  (Refer to above comment by examining physician who says wounds were caused by the “long weapon.”)

(3) Local News Report:


CT School Shooter ID as Ryan Lanza

[This post may be updated several times in the next week or two.]

ABC News has provided an ID of the CT School shooter as Ryan Lanza.  (Update 12/16: Indeed, they did ID as Ryan initially.  But, we now know it was his brother, Adam.)  In the absence of any other information, here is an horary chart based on the moment of the announcement of his identification (by David Muir) on ABC News, 1337 CST (set to time local to Plano, where the chart was cast):


[Click to Enlarge]

[Update (12/14): Ryan Lanza is alive and cannot be the shooter.  The news media currently (12/14, 3:54p CST) reports Adam Lanza as the shooter.]

We estimate the beginning of this tragedy to have been the alignment of Pluto with the ascendant at 8:25 EST (set in CT):

[We are using horary format for those who use that approach in analysis of events.]

Sandy Hook est start 12-14-2012 2-21-21 PM

[Update (12/15): We suspect that Nancy Lanza was murdered by her son, Adam Lanza, at this time (8:25 am EST), possibly as she prepared to leave for work at the school.  We base this on currently (12/15 0116 CST) available timelines without adjustment to account for his or her birth data.]

We note that the sign of Libra is intercepted in the 9th house of education and Aries (with Uranus present) is intercepted in the 3rd house of children and siblings.

We believe that the event was finished by the alignment of the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto Yod with Saturn (in Scorpio) at midheaven, which was approximately 9:18 EST (Newtown, CT):

[Update (12/14): We believe (now) event was culminating at this point and likely finished (suicide by shooter) later.  However, if that is true, we cannot find a clear termination point.  Could be as early as Mars CONJ ASC or as late as ascendant becoming Aquarian, which was also when Neptune moved from the 2nd to 1st house.  None of those are nearly as good as 9:18, but news reports have said repeatedly that no call about the shooter was made until 9:30 or 9:40.  Did the news get that wrong, too?]

[Update (12/15 @ 0117 CST): We suspect that this (9:18) was Adam Lanza’s arrival / entry to the school.  He may have taken advantage of the chaos that sometimes happens as students and teachers head to class, attempting to start class at 9:30 am.  If that is true, then he likely ended his own life by 9:56 am when the ascendant changed signs from Capricorn to Aquarius and, nearly simultaneously, Neptune (planet of martyrs) moved into the first house.]

The noteworthy pattern here is the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto Yod (part of a Double Yod Key) which will be prominent on the 2012 Solstice.  Do the school shootings reflect something about the larger shifts that are happening?

We have found the following, which brings into question the ID announced by David Muir:

Ryan Lanza It wasnt me 12-14-2012 2-53-22 PM

That screen capture from here.

Also interesting: NJ has the strictest laws regarding guns (and their possession) in the nation.  How did the NJ gunman acquire a Sig and a Glock (and two other weapons, possibly a Bushmaster .223) while living in a state with such strict “gun control”?

[Update (12/15 @ 0124 CST)  We know, now, that Ryan was not the perpetrator even though the NJ police led him away in handcuffs.  But, we still ask, how did 20 year old Adam, autistic by some reports and the child of a single mother kindergarten teacher, come to possess the collection of firearms that he used?  This seems very strange given the laws in place requiring background checks to prevent the mentally disabled from acquiring weapons.  And, where did he get the money to make the purchases?  He had between $1000 and $2000 worth of weapons….]
