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…. 

Full Moon 2:22 (February 22nd 2016)

Full Moon 2:22 (February 22nd 2016)

Some days are simple, and others are complex.  The same can be said for lunations (Full Moons and New Moons): some are simple, and some are complex.  The Full Moon today, and associated aspects, are complex.

First of all, the numerologists are surely have a field day with this.  (Note: I am not a numerologist.  Repeating star cycles make “sense” to me.  Repeating number cycles, that seem otherwise random, do not.  But, I am willing to “give them a chance.”)

Today is a 2:22 “Master Number Day” in a nine (9) year.  Since, in Western Numerology, “nines” disappear (when you use them to reduce a number you get the original number back), that means that today is a pure “2:22” Master number day.  A similar Full Moon will not occur again until 2035, and 2035 reduces to “1” which means THAT “2:22” Master Number Full Moon is not “pure” like this one.  From this vantage point, alone, today is special.

AND, we have four patterns present in this Full Moon: (1) a Hele indicating important allegiances being formed or “updated”; (2) a Yod indicating an important decision today (probably about the allegiances though not necessarily); (3) a Square Key (which indicates that important “lessons” can be learned from the outcomes of today’s decisions; and (4) a Thor’s Hammer (the “God’s Fist” pattern which provides “energy” but can lead to anger, tempers flaring, and sometimes violence or explosions).  To be certain, it is a very “busy” day.

Sun in Pisces is opposed by Moon in Virgo.  As many have written elsewhere, this brings into play themes of work (Virgo) and play (Pisces), detailed oriented tasks such as bookkeeping and accounting as opposed to development of lyrics and music, and similar Pisces / Virgo issues.  With Jupiter (the “old” or “traditional” ruler of Pisces) nearby in Virgo and Neptune (the modern ruler of Pisces) nearby in its home sign of Pisces, the Pisces side of these issues is particularly emphasized.  Weirdly, this could mean odd things such as seeing the “music” in bookkeeping and accounting or similar viewpoints.  (And this is a very important date for anyone in the “music business.”)

In addition to the Full Moon, Venus is particularly active today.  Issues of health, beauty, and finances come to the forefront.  Venus quintile Mars brings innovative ideas about how to “get things done.”  Venus septile Saturn may provide some hard lessons about how we thing about helping those less fortunate than ourselves.  Venus undecile Neptune brings in issues of dreams, poetry, music, drugs and alcohol, and those are already in play with this particular Full Moon.

Outer planet aspects are particularly active, and Hygeia enters Virgo (again, emphasizing the healthcare issues associated with this Full Moon).  Neptune is semisquare Vesta, and we find ourselves feeling some sense of urgency in which our traditions and “how we have always done it” are in conflict with our desires and hopes regarding play, health, dreams, music, poetry, drugs and alcohol.  (Maybe it is time to find a new way to “get things done.”)  Juno semisquares Hygeia, and somehow some of us find our faith shaken in an important way regarding health and the healthcare system.  Jupiter is semi-sextile Black Moon Lilith (a point, not a planet), and some of us must explore taboo topics particularly regarding sex and sexuality.

Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

As an aside, I am including the forecast for the previous day (Sunday 2:21) rather than making a separate post for it:

February 2016

Week 9 (W09)

Sunday February 21st

Sunday continues the yod of Saturday in a different variant form with Chiron effectively replacing Neptune and forcing issues involving health or education (or both) to the forefront.  A grand fire trine (Uranus / Moon / Saturn) helps us to “get things done” particularly if we are either a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or an air sign (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).  Since fire signs are favored most, if you are a air sign you would be smart to hitch your wagon to a fire sign today if you can.  Water and Earth signs can “get things done” also, but are not favored as much (except by means of any fire or air sign planets you might have in your natal chart).  Whatever the case, make your decision by 10 AM CST if you want to be effective in “getting things done” today.

Moon (Leo) squares Mars (Scorpio) at 7:18 PM CST and then goes void.  Best to have your project finished by this point in time if at all possible.  Stick with productive time before the void and use the void for “cleanup” activities once the void begins.
