Marysville School Shootings

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.

New Moon October 2014 (Solar Eclipse)

The New Moon (and Solar Eclipse) of October 23rd proves to have an interesting chart.  With an eighth house stellium in Scorpio when set here in Plano as well as Mars near Midheaven (MC), we expect the potential for some intense power struggles and intense transformations.

This intense eclipse is not entirely a surprise, given the recent “Grand Yod” of August and September (and effectively continuing to exert influence through November and into 2015), the Kite of October 5th through 12th (earlier this month), and Rosettas, Mystic Rectangle, and Thor’s Hammers that followed the kite.

Astrologically speaking, October 2014 has been a busy month.  And, this Solar Eclipse, producing a New Moon Stellium in Scorpio (in the eighth house in Plano, where the chart was cast), is no exception.

Maybe this year Halloween should fall on the 23rd!

Here is the chart:

2014-10 New Moon (Solar Eclipse)

[Click to Enlarge]

We see traditional planets Venus and Saturn joining the Sun/Moon in Scorpio and (local to Plano) in the eighth house.  Asteroids Ceres (food, food supplies, and issues of prosperity and famine) and Pallas (Justice and legal battles) are also part of this stellium.  NASA has provided a map of the path of the eclipse.  Per TimeAndDate.com, this eclipse will be visible in New York City near sunset.  Wikipedia also has a page dedicated to this eclipse, replete with animations.

From a Solar Maps vantage point, the United States map is particularly interesting.  The corridor of the east coast from NYC to Boston is particularly affected by this eclipse.  Other planetary lines (Pluto / Node / Mercury) affect North Carolina and South Carolina.  A Mars line passes North to South through Shreveport, Louisiana (see, also, this link) and points due north of Shreveport (through Canada).  Des Moines IA is also affected by the same line that affects Shreveport.

A Jupiter line passes through Los Angeles, bringing likely prosperity to that region.  (This might be in the form of rain, literally.)  That same Jupiter line intersects Vesta a few hundred miles east of Boise ID.  (So, this point east of Boise ID would be great to hold some kind of “brainstorming” conference.)

Given that the motion picture industry is centered in Los Angeles, but important productions are now being made in Shreveport, we have to wonder what kind of the collaborations between the two are going to emerge over the course of the next year (or at least until the next eclipse).

Here is the map:

The Chiron / Neptune crossing south of Albuquerque NM indicates a need to resolve certain issues.  (This might be an important turning point for the CNVC. Happy 80th birthday to Marshall Rosenberg.)

We see an Astraea line passing near the center of Atlanta GA (and that emphasizes, at this time, any linkages Atlanta has to Paris, France).  We also note a Ceres line (Ceres at Midheaven) going through Vancouver and points north of Vancouver.

Below is an alternative U.S. Map:

While the state of Connecticut does not have any crossings, it does have THREE lines passing through this relatively small region (Sun, Moon, and Venus).  We expect the eclipse to be particularly “viewable” here near sunset, and we also expect this region to be strongly affected by the eclipse.

The West Indies are highly affected by this eclipse.  A number of lines run through Cuba.  Puerto Rico is HIGHLY affected by a concentration of the same lines that affect Connecticut (Sun, Moon, and Venus), but closer together (and, therefore, a bit amplified).  The Bahamas and Jamaica are affected by close alignment of the Mercury / Node lines.  (Interpretation of Mercury / Node: “it is fate that something must be said.”)

In the UK and Europe, we expect Latvia to be most highly affected, but the region including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Belorus will be affected.  Paris is also affected.

As regular reader Caroline wrote: “I have done the eclipse chart for Bristol and you may be interested to know that Astraea is 01aries 22 9th house side to the eclipse MC of 01aries49.”  We see Astraea at MC for Paris, France.  Note that this activates any linkages to Atlanta GA as being important at this time.  And it also means that questions of Justice will be particularly important for these regions.

We also note that a Uranus (Prometheus) MC (Midheaven) line directly affects Munich, Germany.  Given the rest of this chart, we expect profound events occur here.  We hope that these will be in the high form (powerful insights and scientific breakthroughs) rather than the low form (explosions).  Either or both could occur.  Germany is generally associated with Scorpio, so we expect that Germany is now at a critically important turning point (that may not fully manifest until after the Mercury Direct Station.

SE Asia is highly activated, as shown by this map:

First of all, we note that almost all of the “-stans” in the region, from Pakistan to Kazakhstan, have a Chiron on the Descendant line passing through them.  They are feeling pain and wounds (perhaps wounded egos or maybe physical wounds or fiscal wounds or all of these) and will be sensitive at this time.  The part of India that borders Pakistan is picked up by this also.  Otherwise, India is mostly untouched by this eclipse.

Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Malaysia pick up the Node / Mercury lines similar to the Bahamas / Jamaica lines described earlier.  (Essentially these are slightly different variations of the same line.  Interpretation of Mercury / Node: “it is fate that something must be said.”)  As with Atlanta / Paris, communications between this region and the corresponding region in the West Indies may prove to be important.

Particularly powerful are the lines that pass through Northern China (near Japan), Taipei, the northern edge of the Phillipines, and the eastern edge of Indonesia.  These lines correspond to the lines passing through New York, Connecticut, and (other) parts of New England.  These are the Sun / Moon / Venus lines from the eclipse, and they bring powerful changes to these regions.

Taipei is one of the most highly affected places in the world.  Here is the chart of the eclipse, relocated to Taipei:

You do have an interesting chart, given your 12th house stellium (cluster of four or more planets, at least two of which are NOT personal planets) and Sun conjunct Pluto (exact) in the 11th house of friends, surprises, (and sometimes bribes).  With Jupiter in the 10th and near Midheaven (universities, legal system, and sometimes churches), you should consider a career at a university or in the courts.  Depending on your background and abilities, you might should consider being a teacher or an attorney.  The asteroid Astraea is also present in the 10th, and that points in the direction of the legal system.

The 12th house stellium indicates that you will tend to be involved with institutions, but you can (at least potentially) choose which ones.  Univeristies or courts might be preferable to jails or mental health facilities for you.  You do have to be careful regarding addictions, whether your own or people who are close to you.

I suspect that the energy of the legal system has come to you rather than you coming to it.  If that is true, you should at least consider a shift in career that allows you to harness that energy to benefit you.

Joseph C and the Memoirs of His Adventures

Let me re-interate, Joseph, that you need to write your memoirs.  While I am unsure of the precise details as to why this is true, I can tell you that time is short for you.  That does not mean that you will die soon, but it does mean that a window is closing for you soon.  You must write your memoirs.  Here is how to do it.  Use either Word or Scrivener to organize your work.  Write as fast and furious as you can.  (That means you use the word count feature to tell you how many words you have written each day, and you make certain you write at least 1000 words per day, every day.  Like Hemingway, you stop dead center in the middle of a thought each day to prevent “writers block” when you start the next day.)

Give yourself a deadline.  Heck, *I* will give you a deadline: September 30th.  You have to write the end first, and work backwards.  That is, you write the last chapter, and it begins like this: “Here is why I am writing this:”  Then you write the previous chapter and work backwards.

On September 30th, you will publish the entire thing, by midnight, as a first edition on .MOBI format in Amazon’s Kindle marketplace.  (Note that you can find ebooks there on ebook publishing, and several blogs discuss the idea, such as this one and this one.)

Although I do the astrology work I do for “free,” my real payment is (paradoxically) anonymous recognition.  So, I want a credit.  (Grandtrines, at grandtrines.wordpress.com, gave me the kick in the seat of the pants to write this.)  Maybe I will publish a “Grand Trines” book myself.

If you are still alive and able bodied on October 1st, you can NOW re-write the chapters (and add material if you wish).  At the end of October, you publish again, but this is now the 2nd edition.  The main thing is, you need this work PUBLISHed somewhere “just in case” the window closes.

If you are still alive and able bodied on November 1st, you can take what you have written and use it for the basis of a novel (work of fiction) by participating in Nanowrimo.  Start at the end again.  Publish in .MOBI format to the Kindle marketplace on December 31st.  And, I want another credit!

Here is what you wrote when you requested my analysis:

Hello-Great insights! Thank you so much for the Mutual reception article…
I am a sag with a stellum of scorpio planets in the 12th- venusconjnept conjunct ascend conjuct moon….which are also conj sun merc in sag.
When saturn and pluto was in scorpio in 84 I became very ill for a yr….later I was diagnosed with hiv which progressed to aids. I did not take meds(stubborn) until 5 yrs ago. I am now a pretty vibrant individual…I could fill volumes on my “affair” with pluto as it touched all of my personal planets. I witnessed tremendous death in this life. I am looking forward to this transit. It seems that once you align with pluto and discard what is asked of you the light bursts thru. I watched 2 dear friends lose their lives when saturn transited their 12th just a few months ago…I have a hope that I will release more ego-more baggage- more fear…and maybe if it is my time to leave the planet…Im ready.
But I also sense a great power building within me…pluto in my 2nd nept in 4th, chiron return,uran in 5th, jupt in 7th is filling me with creativity and God….I am full.
….I am trying not to hold my breath for the worst- I am praying for more release of that which holds me apart from God/wellbeing. Can the mutual reception aid in my release? Pluto will almost be sextiling my venus/nept when saturn is on top of them.
Neptune is trining the 12th- along with jupiter. Will the support from these bodies aid in the saturn transit? I began studying astrology when I first got sick…my health is amazing right now…any thoughts are most welcome.

Although I can answer your specific questions, the prescription (maybe I should be Dr. Grand Trines?) I mentioned above should address your needs.  This is particularly true with your Jupiter/Chiron conjunction and the ongoing Chiron return in your chart.  (You can certainly ask questions, and we can discuss it in comments.)

Here is your natal chart, produced in Solar Fire 7 and annotated using Snag-It:

And, yup, Saturn will give you quite a ride in 2013 / 2014 / 2015.  Look back at what happened 14 & 28 years ago to get a perspective on what is coming.

Update: Joseph found that we had an error in our calculations.  Here is the corrected chart.  Our interpretations, however, still stand the same.

Stellia of March 25, 2012

March 23, 2012 at 9:45 pm | Posted in Astrology, Patterns | Comments Off on Stellia of March 25, 2012
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

PAT shows an interesting configuration of two pair of stellia for March 25th. One stellium is part of a grand trine involving Mars and Pluto. The stellium of 3 includes Moon, Jupiter, & Venus (all tend to be considered benefic). Mars and Pluto are highly malefic. What can this mean?

At this time, Sun, Mercury (retrograde) and Uranus form a stellium of 3, and they are part of a “Huber Learning Triangle” with Pluto square to the group and Mars inconjunct (quincunx). Again, what can this mean? And, though each of the stellia are not directly connected, both are connected by their relationships to Mars and Pluto.

Would love to hear from other astrologers regarding how to interpret this (preferably BEFORE the date has passed).

Exploring further, we find interesting a chart for Moon Trine Pluto on March 25th (earlier than the PAT chart) at about Noon (Plano time).  (The remainder of the analysis is done using SolarFire.)

If all these patterns are going to lead to something interesting, this chart could narrow down when (and where).  Using this chart as a basis, here are a few maps.  (Caveat: these maps are based on Moon Trine Pluto.  The entire set of patterns is very complex, and this pick of chart to base the maps upon could be totally wrong.  This is just a “best guess.”)

United States Map

The U.S. map is interesting.  California (all of it) is affected by a node (karma) line.  Texas, particularly San Antonio, and Mexico City are affected by a Mars (violence) line.  (Sigh, that’s MY neighborhood!)  And, most interesting of all, the corridor from New York to Boston is covered by two lines: the lines of the Sun and Uranus (part of the stellium with Mercury).  Finally, a southern part of South Carolina, not too far from Atlanta, has an intersection of a Mercury and Pluto line.

Europe and the United Kingdom

The map for the UK and Europe does not show any lines on the UK at the moment of this particular aspect.  Most of Western Europe appears unaffected, except Munich which could expected some surprises.  A Uranus line (descendant) affects Stockholm.  Generally, Eastern Europe is influenced by this time by Uranus, Sun, and Pluto.  Frankly, these bring difficulty.  Warsaw, Krakow, and Sarajevo look like they might experience periods of unrest.

Asia

The cross of Mars (violence) and the Node (karma) in Sri Lanka is hard to miss.  Maybe this will just be a good time to be an athlete there, but there could be some unrest.

The region from east of Tehran to Northwestern India, including Pakistan, appears to benefit from this period.  Neptune touches Delhi, and both Neptune and Chiron lines dominate India at the time of this aspect.  This signals some kind of healing for India (but, also, a risk of confusion).  Uranus and Sun lines touch Hanoi and Jakarta, and some challenges could be expected there.  The interior of China is affected by these lines, as well as a Mercury (communication) line.  Pluto and Saturn lines cross about halfway between Beijing and Tokyo.  Exactly what this means for China / Japan relations is not clear, but those two planets can be most challenging.

Click Image to Enlarge Viewable Area

Australia and New Zealand

Apparently Western Australia has been experiencing some difficulties, and the Saturn line precisely on top of a border signals increasing strife regarding the issue of that border.  The remainder of the country does well, and the eastern coast (Canberra, Sydney) does particularly well with a Venus line passing through that region.  With a Moon line passing through Adelaide, a bit of thought about “what things really mean” is happening there.  Regarding any regional conflicts that might be occurring, Adelaide really desires peace and reconciliation, a united Australia, at this time.  Also note, the Pacific Rim countries due north of the relative cities will experience these same energies.  New Zealand, particularly southern New Zealand, is dealing with karmic issues (revisit the past).

One final note: far northern areas, such as Alaska, do not generate interpretable maps (too many lines converge).

5 point stellium on Monday March 15th (and Tuesday March 16th)

March 13, 2010 at 2:08 am | Posted in Astrology, Lunations, Predictions | Comments Off on 5 point stellium on Monday March 15th (and Tuesday March 16th)
Tags: , , , , ,

As you may realize from the title of this blog, the focus of this blog is planetary patterns. Monday March 15, 2010 and Tuesday March 16, 2010 will witness a five point stellium. These happen from time to time, but not everyday. This one emphasizes things Piscean.

As you can see from this chart (a SolarFire 7 chart), the Moon is very old and moving toward a New Moon.  In case what I am saying is not obvious, follow the large red lines across the middle of the chart to the group of eight (8) planets on the left hand side.  This group of eight planets can fit about five of them together in a sign or house.  Thus the “5 point stellium.”

Opinions vary about New Moons, but the traditional interpretation is unfavorable.  New Moons do govern beginnings, but they also govern endings.  Shortly after the New Moon, the Moon connects to Mercury (transportation and communication) then Uranus (accidents).

Pisces governs songs and poetry but also mis-steps, deceit, and crime of the “con-artist” variety.  Pisces also governs revelations, particularly the “slip of the tongue” accidental kind.  (Note Uranus = accidents, mentioned above.)

Since this particular one (several stellia occur in the March 15th / 16th period) occurs in rush hour for most U.S. time zones, the likelihood of auto accidents increases.  The same may be true in parts of Europe experiencing the evening rush hour.  For poets and songwriters, this can be a great time.  The rest of us need to be extra careful.

A few people will find this to be a good time to launch a diet or break an old bad habit.

Most affected: people born August 17th to September 19th.  People born February 13th to March 17th.  For these two groups especially, this will probably be either a very bad day or a very good one.  Generally: avoid major purchases if possible.  Avoid long term commitments that involve work, especially arduous work.  (You’ll be “able” to do it, but you may not like it much.)  Again, best uses: reading or writing poetry, lyrics or music.  In fact, any kind of work involving the “Nine Muses.”
