What kind of monster imprisons three women in his basement for years?  That is what more than a few people would like to know about Cleveland suspect Ariel Castro.  (We note that (a) he is innocent until proven guilty but that (b) the evidence against him is overwhelming.)

Specific birth time and location are not available for him at this time.  (We do not have access to his birth certificate, and specifics are not yet available.)  So, we have created a bi-wheel for his reported date of birth and the date of the rescue.  While the positions of the Moon and the Ascendant for both are in question, the resulting chart is still “interesting.”

Our method of rectification is simple.  But, first, keep in mind that we are operating with little to work with, and this is just a “best guess.”  That said, we looked at the charts and looked for the position of the moon on the day of rescue in relation to Castro’s birth chart.  We are guessing that the rescue happened in daylight hours though we are unsure whether closer to noon or sunset.  (We are using noon.)

We have adjusted Castro’s birth chart so that the Moon is just above the 7th house cusp (relationships and open enemies) on the day of the rescue.  Our other choices would be to put the Moon at the Midheaven (six hours earlier) or the IC (six hours later).

But, with the Moon on the 7th house cusp we note that Mercury, Mars, the Sun, the South Node, Pallas, and Venus are in an 8th house stellium (the 8th being the house of death as well as torture; we would also consider alternative versions that place these planets in a 12th house stellium of imprisonment and misfortune).

We note that transiting Juno (spousal relationships and especially issues involving treachery to spouses and family members) either recently aspected his Moon or is in the process of doing so.

Below is a “synastry grid” (usually used to identify compatibility between two people, but used here to identify relationships between Castro’s birth chart and the date of the rescue:

For now, that is all we have to say.  But, with more data later, we might update this article or write a subsequent article.

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

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.

Federalist Papers and Aquarius Papers

July 5, 2008 at 5:13 pm | Posted in Editorial, Holidays, NatalChartAnalysis | Comments Off on Federalist Papers and Aquarius Papers

Today, I read an interesting piece called “Happy Birthday to the United States of America – Or is it?”

Very interesting article, and more interesting comments. I suppose I must start by saying that I completely disagree with ANY notion that the Articles of Confederation was the birth, regardless of sign. Specifically, it was the death of the Articles of Confederation (a model that could not work) that led to the Constitution (a model that could work).

(Please read The Federalist Papers if you have any doubt.)

A commentator to this article, Chris, comes AWFULLY close to the real turning point. He mentions ratification of the 13th Amendment as a possibility for the “real” birthdate. Very, very close.

At this point, we must consider that, in a sense, the nation “died” with the first shot fired at the Battle of Fort Sumter, and a “preganancy” began at the surrender at Appamattox.  (Note that both are Aries dates that loosely square the July 4, 1776 date.)

But, the key point would be the ratification of the 14th Amendment, specifically “the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” That is the glue that holds together MUCH of modern law.

That date is July 9, 1868 (which makes the “new” nation a Cancerian, too.)  Apparently all of the “Reconstruction Amendments” were ratified that day.

The current version of Wikipedia describes the Reconstruction Amendments as “perhaps the most significant structural change to the Constitution since the passage of the United States Bill of Rights.”

The Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment means:
(1) if someone from “out of state” in their car hits your car, then (in most states) the “long arm statute” provides (usually) that you can assert jurisdiction “to the full extent of the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment.”  Ditto for any similar kind of incident.  (Not just an auto crash.)

[But, this blog isn’t to be construed as legal advice nor is it a substitute of any kind for legal advice from a competent attorney practicing in your jurisdiction.  Consult them if you have an actual question about any legal questions that may or may not apply to you or anyone to whom this or related questions or issues may apply.]

(2) Due Process Clause of the 14th extends to the states the protection of the 5th that you cannot be deprived of “life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness” without due process (a hearing, often a trial).

The real point of Due Process is to make certain EVERYone is given notice and a hearing as part of legal action.  (Of course, for the “Equal Protection clause” is just as important.)

Maybe the problem here is the “old” (Piscean?) astrological notion of picking a SINGLE date to represent an entity.  That was essential in an age before computers, but with (Aquarian Age) tools like Bernadette Brady‘s Jigsaw, we can COMBINE multiple dates to produce a new kind of (more sophisticated) analysis….

Then we could include “the Switch in Time That Saved Nine,” which was probably the defining moment for the post-FDR Supreme Court….
