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).

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:

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

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.

We are defined by our Enigmas

I woke up early this morning with these words in my head.  They came to me nearly fully formed, with almost no editing necessary.

We are defined by our Enigmas

We are defined by our Enigmas.  And one of the great enigmas of our time is that of the madman on a rampage.  It consumes us and cheats us of time best spent elsewhere.

We obsess, and we fret.  What could we have done?  Would “gun control” have helped?  We like soft and easy answers.  Surely that would have helped.  We could pass a new law: only licensed policemen could have guns.

But what if Nancy Lanza had succumbed to a sudden illness?  Adam Lanza might have moved in with his uncle, a police officer.  Again, he would have had access to weapons.

Had he lived with a family in the construction business, he might have used explosives and harmed far more people.  When tragedy strikes, we rarely pause to think that it could have been worse.

Had he been “radicalized” by a group that advocates violence and recruits the disenfranchised, he might have become a suicide bomber.

We would call him a “terrorist” instead of a “school shooter” and somehow think he was different in a meaningful way.

Putting the evil in the object, whether guns or bombs, is a risky thing because it rarely cures the problem.

Maybe we could spend more money on mental health.  We could.  We could make certain that people receive mental health “regardless of level of income.”  But, “regardless of level of income” has become a euphemism for poverty in the United States.

And that means that kids from middle class and wealthy families, like Adam Lanza, paradoxically “fall through the cracks.”  Adam himself was barely a step from homeless.  But his family had so much money that he would have never qualified for any of these special programs.  And that, again, leaves us with a madman on a rampage.

The idea that middle class and wealthy families will step forward to help their mentally ill family members is an old lie.

Ask anyone who has worked in the mental health field for at least a few years and you will find out the truth.  Most families cannot handle the burden and eventually abandon the suffering family member.  But, the politicians can always sell us the same old well-worn lies that “sound good.”

And that means the problem is never addressed.

The most disturbing thought of all is that there is no solution.  Maybe the way that we have built our society transforms some of our best and brightest into fragile and unemployable young adults who have nowhere to turn when they break down.  And that, inevitably, leaves us with a madman on a rampage.

Liza Long can tell you how things really are.

But, the biggest engima of all is the question of why do we we keep defining ourselves in terms of losses?  We focus on the rampage of the madman, and we cheat ourselves of the awareness of the windows of opportunity that can exist in almost any situation.

As we move forward from this tragedy, we need to remember the words of Robert F. Kennedy:

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

Enigmatically, Robert F. Kennedy died because of a madman on a rampage.

Update: Maybe this might make a difference. (It is a petition to “address the shortcomings of the current mental health system to prevent at-risk people from becoming violent offenders.”)

Update (12/21): This article argues that our collective violence is part of our evolutionary history….


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.]

Sandy Hook est end 12-14-2012 2-22-25 PM

[Click to enlarge]

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….]
