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…. 

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

We have been analyzing disasters and shootings less lately in favor of forecasts and similar analysis.  Previously, we have produced a chart analysis for Adam Lanza, the West, TX Fertilizer plant explosion, the Orbital Sciences Antares Rocket explosion, the Philadelphia Amtrak wreck, the Marysville school shootings, and the Boston Marathon bombing.  That said, we will provide a chart and preliminary analysis of the San Bernardino shootings on December 2, 2015.  We note, also, that this attack comes only a few weeks after the massacre of 130 people in Paris by ISIS based terrorists.

Click here for our Calendar Page for Wednesday, December 2nd.  The event occurred two days before perfection of Mercury square Jupiter, an amplifier of either good will or bad intent.  For practical purposes, that aspect applies here.  The event also occurred four days before perfection of Mars square Pluto, perhaps the most dangerous of all aspects, and, again, for practical purposes that aspect applies here.  Saturn square Neptune, a very slow moving aspect that governs weeks and months, perfected for the first time (of three) on November 26th.  Again, that is so close (Saturn has a 28 year orbit; Neptune a 160 year orbit), that it applies here.  All of this, together, is a bit tough.

We present the chart, based on the reported time of 10:59 AM PST and filtered for T-Squares:

2015-12-02 San Bernardino Shootings (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We count ten squares and four oppositions in that chart.  Frankly, that seems rather high.  But we think that the critically important events occurred earlier in the day, during this window:

Solar Fire Gold  Dec 4 2015
Electional Search Results
Criteria:  FIND  (Chart contains Thor’s Hammer)
Search From: Dec 2 2015  0:00 am

Enters   Dec 2 2015 1:46:53 am (CST +6:00)
Leaves Dec 2 2015 6:17:32 am (CST +6:00)
We think that the critical events occurred in this window, that this was when the decisions were made that would mean “this was the day” that they had planned for.  And, within that window, we will hazard a guess that the critical turning point occurred at, or near, the entry of the Moon in to Virgo.  That yields this particular Thor’s Hammer chart:
2015-12-02 San Bernardino (Moon enters Virgo + TH)
[Click Image to Enlarge]
Note that (1) Moon had recently perfected a conjunction to Astraea (issues of justice), (2) Moon moved into Earth (Earth tends to lack compassion, refer to Adam Lanza chart as a comparison) and (3) we have a Thor’s Hammer (again, compare the Adam Lanza natal chart) that activates (a) Uranus and (b) Pluto (that pesky Uranus / Pluto square, again, that we keep talking about).  Also noteworthy: (1) Mars has just risen (and is in 12th house of religion (and delusions) and (2) Uranus (explosions, among other things) is setting.

Since this is a preliminary analysis, we will hold any further commentary until more information is available.  (Particularly, we would like birth information for the shooters, should that ever become available.)  For an alternative analysis, posted on Astrotheme, click here.  Another analysis is located here.  Astrology Weekly has a discussion located here.

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:

Here is the same chart with Midpoint Trees:

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.

Adam Lanza (Preliminary Analysis)

December 15, 2012 at 1:56 am | Posted in Astrology, Events, FamousPeople | 6 Comments

[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”).

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1992


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: http://www.imaginary.com/page/1/la-riots-1992.jsp

For other years, see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_22

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

December 14, 2012 at 1:48 pm | Posted in 2012, Astrology, BadDays | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

[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….]
