A Quick Note Regarding the Pulse Shooter

For those of you who are not regular readers, the analyses and predictions for Week 24 and Week 25 (i.e. “the quiet after a series of terrifying events” noted in the June 17th analysis) were written several weeks ago, LONG before the shooter at Pulse over the weekend, the stabbing of the 12 year old in France, or the shooter in Amarillo TX this week.  And, we did not QUITE get it right when we wrote the following about last Saturday (Week 24, written in late May / early June):

Today has Mars Septile Pluto, the aspect of karma for both warrior planets.  [emphasis added]  A very smart thing to do with this is to do something for a disabled veteran you know (or for disabled veterans in general).  This will benefit you in important ways that you cannot see yet.  Alternatively, you can do the same especially regarding any kind of “widows and orphans” fund for police or firefighters.

While we could be wrong, we suspect that if the shooter had been treated as a “disabled veteran” and some “kindness” (mental health care? at least a counselor of some kind?) had been shown to him, the possibility exists that the outcome might have been very, very different.  We are NOT saying that he was not unstable or dangerous.  We ARE saying that the danger he presented might could have been eliminated if someone had spoken up and provided mental health care for him.  Since he was a licensed security guard, passing gun control legislation would have done nothing whatsoever to have stopped this event.  Only an intervention such as a mental health intervention could have prevented it.  Until we fix our broken mental health system, and the “karma” related to how we care for those who have become unstable, these kinds of events will continue.

Gun control laws only provide a false sense that, somehow, we are “safe” because a law was passed.  But that is a “band-aid fix” that does not get to the root problem.  We suspect that, if guns were not available, the Pulse shooter would have resorted to explosives as Timothy McVeigh did and as “suicide bombers” in the Middle East continue to do so.  We would not be safe, not at al.  (See, also: West, TX.)  Gun control laws don’t help much with those…. 

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.

Philadelphia Amtrak Wreck and Higher Order Aspects 2015-05-12

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Hard Rectangle

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.

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

October 30, 2014 at 9:21 pm | Posted in 2014, Astrology, BadDays | Comments Off on Astrology Chart for Wichita KS Plane Crash (2014-10-30)
Tags: , , , , , , ,

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

Here is the chart for the plane crash:

Wichita Plane Crash 2014-10-30

[Click to Enlarge]

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

Wichita Plane Crash 2014-10-30 (Horary)

 

[Click to Enlarge]

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

Marysville School Shootings

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

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

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

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

Marysville Shootings 911 Calls

[Click to Enlarge]

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

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

Marysville High School Shootings (Rectified)

[Click to Enlarge]

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

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

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

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

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

Marysville Shootings Modulus Sort Strips

Here is the same chart with Midpoint Trees:

Marysville Shootings (Midpoint Trees)

[Click to Enlarge]

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

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

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

Perhaps certain details will always remain a mystery.

Mars Conjuct Algol, May 24, 2013

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

Boston Marathon Bombing 2013

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

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

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

[Click on Image to Enlarge]

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

Here is the horary version of that same chart:

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

Here is the map:

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

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

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

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

Full Moon, September 2012: T-Square Activation and Mars Opposes Algol

September 28, 2012 at 12:04 am | Posted in Astrology, BadDays, Lunations, Patterns, Weekends | Comments Off on Full Moon, September 2012: T-Square Activation and Mars Opposes Algol
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

We have an “interesting” full moon coming this weekend.  It seems to be a marker of the sign of the times with a gunman killing a number of people in Minneapolis as well as profound unrest in many areas (and aspects) of the Middle East.  Here are a few key points:

1.  The relationship between Uranus and Pluto (the square that will “toll” like a bell seven times, according to Cainer, until 2015) is activated by this Full Moon.  The Moon is a degree of orb away from Uranus as its opposition with the Sun culminates.  In simple terms, the Moon conjoins Uranus, the Sun opposes Uranus, and all three square Saturn Pluto.

[Sorry for the typo.  But, most of you know I meant Pluto, right?  After all, if you are reading a blog like this one, then SURELY you have heard about this Uranus/Pluto event that will last from circa 2011 to circa 2015.  Right?  If not, then check back.  We will be writing much more about this in the months to come.  Update: We think this Full Moon has some Earthquake potential.  Hopefully, we are wrong.  But, it looks like a possibility.  Update to the Update: expected the earthquake to be SOMEWHERE ELSE, not here in Dallas.  But, though small, read about it here.  Thankfully, it was too small to be felt anywhere outside of our immediate region & no damage locally.]

2.  Mars, only a degree past a square with Venus, opposes Algol.  Venus obviously squares it.

3.  Easy to forget with all this current high drama, Saturn soon enters Scorpio in preparation for the aspects of December of 2012.

From the maps, I note that the northern coast of South America is VERY active at this time.  Not sure what will happen here, but do not be surprised if some kind of border dispute turns “hot” and possibly into a war.  “Things” look troubling here.  The same is true for East Timor, which has exactly the same kind of energy (Sun/Moon/Pluto) in maximal configuration.  Things could go boom.

Practical Applications of this Full Moon: (1) This is a dangerous period.  Be careful.  (2) This is a time to balance between planning and taking action.  If you have been doing too much of one, then it is time for you to look at doing the other.  That is, if you have been going “full tilt,” then you need to pause and rethink your goals and objectives.  And, if you have been “all saddlin’ up and no riding,” then you need to get back in the saddle and get something done.  Only you know which one.  But, if you really are not sure, then do something (safely).

Here is the chart, calculated by Solar Fire and set, of course, in Plano.

2012 August Mercury Retrograde and More

August 4, 2012 at 10:49 pm | Posted in Astrology, BadDays, Lunations, Patterns, Predictions, Retrogrades, Weekends | 5 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Wondering what is coming up in the rest of August, 2012?
August 7/8 (depending on time zone): Mercury Retrograde:  We like the Cafe Astrology treatment of this upcoming Direct Station.  Regardless of your natal sun sign, the few days after the direct station are a good time to launch something.  The two weeks after the direct station (and before the retrograde station) can have some rough spots, but consider launching anyway.  Sometimes (overdue) things come to instead.  Whether this is “good” or “bad” depends on your values and what you have done in the past.

August 17: New Moon: This late Leo new moon perfects in all U.S. time zones, England, and Western European (and some Eastern European) time zones on this date.  As with all New Moons, the week before is a good time to clean out and throw away, especially if you plan to return to school this fall.  You can probably find some great sale items in this period but BE CERTAIN TO CLEAN OUT FIRST.  The ten day period from the Direct Station to the New Moon is probably a good time to do this.  If you can, think about giving something to someone who can use it or someone less fortunate.  Avoid the landfill if you can.

Although I will not delineate the details in this particular blog post, this is an unusually important new moon because of its location (25 Leo).  Both 15 Leo and 25 Leo have long been a source of controversy.  This New Moon squares Algol, among other things.  (Although Algol is now at 26 Taurus, for most people born prior to the year 2000 it was at 25 Taurus.  And, the orb for a New Moon is typically 5 degrees.) We have discussed a Moon / Algol activation elsewhere, and it began a period of time characterized by a coal mine disaster, large loss of life in an airliner crash in Eastern Europe, and that culminated the Deepwater Horizon disaster.  (We are guessing that the chain of events here could also extend a similar period of time.)

This New Moon also precisely opposes the Aquarius Moon (25 Aquarius) of the United States’ “Scorpio Rising” chart.  (This article about that chart and U.S. Presidents is interesting.)  A brief check of the history of August 17, in general, shows a remarkable number of military operations on this date.

The period ranging from August 14th through the end of August looks like a period of instability with potential for a significant disaster of some kind.  The New Moon looks especially risky.  And, again, this period may extend as far as the Autumnal Equinox.

The period before a new moon is often used for fasting for both physical and spiritual reasons.  It can be a very good time for weight loss, so you might successfully start a diet the day after the Mercury Direct station.  Some yoga practitioners conduct a brown rice fast at this time.  And, pray for peace.

August 21/22: Sun Enters Virgo: about 3 to 4 hours prior to the entry of the Sun into Virgo BOTH the Sun and the Moon are void.  Most of us are asleep at this time.  BUT, this is a very good time to “let go” of things.  You will want the precise times for your time zone.  Locally, in Plano, the period begins shortly after 2am and ends just past noon.  (That is not three to four hours, but the Moon leaves its void and enters Scorpio about 4am.  But the Sun does not enter Virgo until just past Noon.  And, THAT is when the period is completely finished.)

Try not to to schedule anything important during this period.  Again, the best use of this period is to “let go” of something, “break a habit,” start weaning a child, or something similar.

PRIOR to this period, for most or all of August 21st, is a period that is probably extremely useful for creative problem solving and/or brainstorming.  This is a good time to develop a plan, or solve any nagging problems, as a prelude to the period of “letting go” described above.

Mars is also void starting about an hour earlier (1am locally) until a bit past 10am on Thursday, August 23rd.  If you could extend your “letting go” period until this time, then that would be even better.  Many of us cannot do that.  So, keep things routine until past the 23rd.  (But, the Mercury sextile Jupiter the evening (Plano) of August 22nd would be a good time to write letters, poetry, novels, etc.  Just do not mail them or act on them until Thursday afternoon or later.

August 24:  Sun (Virgo) opposes Neptune (Pisces).  Great for poetry and insights.  A possibility of illness, especially for Gemini, Virgo, Sadge, and Pisces.  If you are an alcoholic, drug addict, or “just party too much,” then a risky day for you.  Moon in Sadge makes this aspect a T-Square and picks up Chiron in the process.  It is a tough day, though Jim Shawvan finds an Opportunity Period here.

August 25: Mars Trines Neptune either late Saturday (Plano & East Coast) or Sunday (California).  This is a very good time for “smooth talkers” and a bad time for those who tend to be even a little bit gullible.  Essentially the aspect governs the day, and probably the prior Thursday and Friday, and makes this a risky time for many.  Just do not believe ANYthing a politician says at this time.  They, and the talking heads on TV (including financial sector), just cannot be believed.  Sign nothing.  Commit to nothing.  Pay close attention to whomever you meet at this time.

For some, Sunday will be a day of reckoning when the Moon enters Capricorn and then conjoins Pluto.

August 29th: Sun (Virgo) trines Pluto (Capricorn).  Financial services industry becomes “interesting” again.  People coming back to school find this day difficult.  Power struggles emerge, and bullies pick this day to assert themselves.  (Proper planning, but not action, on the 24/25th can shift this.)

Mercury (late Leo) sextile Saturn (late Libra) creates an atmosphere of semi-panic about overdue work consequent to procrastination that must be finished now.  Students experience the first truly difficult homework of the semester.  Other find things left from earlier this summer (Mercury retrograde) that were not done but now must be completed (possibly by the nearby end of August).

August 30th:  Sun (Virgo) opposes Chiron (Pisces) causing old dramas to re-surface.  For some returning to school at this time, this will be a difficult day.  Some of the pain may be consequent to events that occur the day before.  The Sun is also inconjunct Uranus (Aries), and by itself that would make this a difficult day.  If that happened by itself, that would make today difficult, but more happens.  Then, Mercury goes void (that can be a hair raising time) about 1pm (Plano, CDT) and stays that way until about 9:30p Friday.  Watch what you say; words may be difficult to impossible to “take back.”

The waxing full Moon is felt most strongly this evening, and being in Virgo/Pisces secrets will slip out and you WILL tend to say things you regret.  This is a great night (and day) to stay home unless you are one of the slick teflon people mentioned earlier.  This would also be a good evening for the police to “go after” slick teflon people.

August 31st:  Full Moon.  In addition to the above issue with Mercury, the Moon goes full on Friday morning.  This is a Piscean Full Moon opposite a Virgo Sun.  Moon (Pisces) sextiles Pluto (Capricorn) first (a bit more power struggle), immediately joins Chiron (the wounded healer) which leaves certain people contrite and others feeling an (overdue) sense of justice, opposes the Sun (spilling more secrets), and then squares Jupiter (Gemini).  This last one might lead to unnecessary expenses or overeating.  (Or might lead to a need for bail money for some of the teflon guys.)  This is a VERY good time for police to conduct criminal investigations and make arrests.

September 1st: Another Teflon Saturday.  Mercury (Virgo) opposes Neptune (Pisces) and more people spill secrets they should keep to themselves.  This is a very good day for writing poetry and song lyrics.  And, all of this Neptune / Pisces activity (since the previous weekend) is very good for filmmakers and photographers.  Artists will like this time.  But, don’t spill the beans if you can avoid it.
