Orlando Shooting 2016 Astrology Chart Shots Fired

We have been having alot of outer planet connections! Astrology is complex, so how do we predict events? Especially if we don’t know the charts of persons whose charts connect with those events. And there are so many humans.

This chart of June 12, 2016 at the time of first shots fired, 2:02 AM Eastern, gives many indications. Some charts give little indication, being more in connection with the person’s chart. Most events are a combination of both.

I had been expecting something sad in this time frame because the Saturn square Neptune was the primary aspect at the time of the Nov 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris 17 days before the Paris climate talks. 130 people were killed in Paris. There was so much grief around the world. Many people felt devastated, hopeless. The outdoor Climate Rally was cancelled after the bombings, so people put their shoes there, including Pope Francis, UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon and Marion Cotillard. Saturn squares Neptune the second time June 17, only 5 days after the Orlando shooting. It is the primary aspect of this event as well. The planets will square the third and last time Sept 10, the day after Jupiter enters Libra Sept 9.

To me, this Orlando gay nightclub attack was so very sad because it was on vulnerable people who already have difficult lives struggling for safety, the love of their families, dignity, equality. Saturn wants to bring respect and order out of Neptune chaos and obscurity, get over denial. And there are times when after working hard, it’s good to just let your hair down, or just have fun on the weekend! This is so sad after last year’s right to marriage was won after so many long years.

Moon and Sun are always elemental key factors and they were square, at 90 degree odds from Moon in Virgo to Sun in Gemini. Though ordinarily a challenging square between them would be super emotional, Virgo and Gemini, both Mercury signs, are more logical. Omar Mateen, the gunman, was said to be utterly “cool and calm” expressing his sentiments while he talked by phone to law enforcement officials.

Mercury itself is at 29 Taurus, within a degree of the current position of the Pleiades, its central star, fixed star Alcyone at 0 Gemini. The Pleiades are the 7 sisters. In some traditional horary astrology they were called the weeping sisters and 29 Taurus indicated something to weep about, at worst, mass suicide. 29 is the last degree of any sign, a maturity, an ending, a finality. It can also be at the end of one’s rope. Something had to give. The 7 Sisters were also thought to have to do with homosexuality.

The Sun was with Venus, one who values himself, sometimes above others. Venus at 23 degrees Gemini was exact sextile, a harmonious aspect, with Uranus at 23 Aries. Uranus ranges from genius to insanity, and in Aries is proactive and generally unpredictable and fast at it. Mars has been coming retrograde, reawakening past passions, closer and closer to the opposite midpoint between them in Scorpio. Scorpio loves the night and stealth, is a planet of death as well as healing. The three form a Yod, a Y, with Mars of war at its point, the emphasis.

Since Mars is retrograde and close to its turning forward point, it is in station, holding this chafing inconjunct with Uranus for 37+ days. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5. Now, allowing a 3 degree range, it started toward the second one on June 6, and will make the second exact aspect June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. The inconjunct is continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. There’s no let up. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Mars is bullets and triggers, a declaration of independence, fury. In Scorpio, what could be the compassionate therapist, can also be a dark killer with no mercy. Flavored by Uranus, an air planet, there can be a freedom from conscience, a loner, a radical and shocking situation. Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries can give a sense of being free to act as compelled. This Mars at 25 Scorpio was retrograding slowly, almost at its stand still station turning point it would form at 23 Scorpio. It was within one degree of Omar’s birth chart 24 Scorpio Sun and holding focus on the square to Omar’s Mars at 23 Aquarius. This echoes the Mars inconjunct Uranus, Uranus being the Aquarian planet. His intense violence is no surprise.

Scorpio Stellium Orlando Shooter Omar Mateen
[Mateen’s birthtime is unknown. This chart is calculated for midday (noon) and 0 Aries Ascendant used. Since we don’t have a time of birth, the Moon’s degree can be ± 6+ degrees of the position in this chart. That means it could be in Taurus or Gemini. I think it is in Taurus, possibly closer to the fixed star Alcyone degree in the Pleiades that Mercury was at in the sky June 12.]

He had a 4 planet stellium in Scorpio, one of those planets being Pluto, Scorpio’s own planet. Venus one degree of Pluto can have no fear of death, consider it a blessing, the right thing to happen, even a mercy killing. Venus and Mercury both retrograde considered what to do over and over again, a true obsessive/compulsive taking things to the extreme.

The June 12 Moon in Virgo was also coming to inconjunct Uranus. Virgo is more calculating than helpful sometimes. With Uranus in Aries it could be technical support. Uranus of fame to the masses is the point planet in this second Yod. In Aries, action and leadership, it is a force to be reckoned with. Mars at the other Yod point in Scorpio quietly but powerfully at the other side of the chart, confirms and it happens.

Saturn square Neptune was preceded by a 3 months long Jupiter square Saturn. To Mateen’s thinking, all that is holy in Saturn, the Law, spiritual law, was challenged by, perhaps even laughed or scoffed at, disappointed by Jupiter. Jupiter is confident and good natured while Saturn is official, serious, less fun or funny, susceptible to being made to look the fool. As any good Saturnian knows, sometimes you just have to wait it out to see who’s right, which has the staying power it takes. But if you feel violated and hopeless long enough…. Both squares have ethical issues from traditional law, to the opinionated newly converted true believer, to those who haven’t a clue and could care less. Saturn, the traditionalist, may see the world crumbling around them, be deeply angered by law breakers and besmirchers, wants to make its mark, so takes the law into his own hands – a rogue and vigilante defender. Omar Mateen was right in his Saturn Return at 29 years old. Saturn is in his chart at 10 degrees Sagittarius; Saturn June 12 was at 12 degrees retrograding back to 9 degrees, making a long station on his Saturn. He felt strong and pure in his convictions. Long term aspects like this build up, sometimes to a breaking point. Sometimes they are tired, other times they are tireless and determined.

Jupiter trine Pluto can be super healing, untold wealth, or mass murder. Jupiter in Virgo is careful and organized. Pluto in Capricorn is deadly clever, focused, may be a paid assassin. Jupiter is lucky, and in the hands of harm, succeeds at that too. It took officials 3 hours to stop Omar Mateen.

The moment the chart Ascendant hit 0 Aries, the Vertex, a point of Fate, came to 0 Libra, exactly opposite, the axes precisely overlaying each other. Libra is the sign of war and Peace, and this time, with the Aries war god sign at the Ascendant, it was war. As the time came to the first degree of the first sign, the warrior and guns, the first shots were fired. Fate struck. From one side, Justice was sought. From the other, relationships were non negotiably ended, rendered heartbroken through a sorrowful lack of equality. 50 dead, more than that injured, the worst mass shooting in American history.

Aries is also blood, and there was a lot lost. Aries is also the sign of heroes. Good people lined up for blocks to donate blood when the call went out. Blood banks received such an overwhelming response that they asked donors to come back over the next several days. So many are outpouring their loving support, in this case literally giving of themselves, restoring balance as they can. Zero degrees also indicates new beginnings, and through blood shared, a mingling, a fusion, bonding of a kind, perhaps a deeper understanding, is occurring. The healing has begun.

Orlando Blood Bank Donors Mass Shooting

This event has further serious implications. For the injured and the families of those lost, it will irrevocably change their lives. Though a majority may vote for legalized unions, there are still those who have fear and hate, extremism. Gun laws will be further questioned and fought about. Consensus is a long way off. There is no doubt it will affect the candidacies and elections.

May the Spirits of those lost rest in Peace. We shall overcome; your lives have not been in vain.

Please stay true, be safe, keep learning, keep teaching, keep your courage, be more gentle in our differences. Give your comfort and support as you can. The world needs us to stay strong and steady in the Light, especially at times like this.



Please
be reassured that if you or a loved one or someone you know has any of the above aspects either in your or their birth charts or have transits like these happening to your birth charts, it does not mean you will do or have these things done to you. We are all complex and it takes a lot of factors to push us beyond social reason. In fact, the same aspects of pain for one person can call forth the healer in another. We are humans at different stages of growth, perhaps young Soul, old Soul. The pain in one is sorrow for us all.

In spite of suffering and difficulty, we learn from tragedy. Astrologically we learn to see warning points. We all become more alert and aware, more compassionate. We renew our efforts to help others, and be better people.

SCOTUS Gay Marriage US Legal Couple
HISTORIC! Many thought it would never happen in our lifetime, but it did! I like The Guardian’s title: Anthony Kennedy: how one man’s evolution legalized marriage for millions [The Guardian was a 2014 Pulitzer Prize Public Service award winner].

See that pretty big blue solid line triangle in the astrology chart below?! That’s what’s doing the job! Venus is LOVE and blessings, the pink one. Jupiter, the orange one next to it maximizes those blessings, gives faith and hope for future planning, major LUCK along with plenty of fame! They are in the 12th section of the chart, the place of dreams come true. They are both in lucky harmony with Uranus, the purple planet, the planet of ‘different’ persuasions. The black circle with the diagonal cross, aka the Part of Fortune, makes the third point, a Grand Fire Trine! Fire is purification, inspiration, initiation ~ new beginnings!

The Moon is in maturity at the second to last degree of Libra of relationships, fairness and justice, legal matters. She is what we astrologers call Void of Course, meaning she will make no more major aspects before leaving the sign she is in. To some that is fear things will fall through. To others it means there is nothing to stop it, it’s a done deal. I’m going with the latter since the axes of the chart, horizontal and vertical cross lines, are in ‘fixed,’ stable signs, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus!

Plus, Moon is semi sextile Saturn, the planet of Elders, mentors and maturity and is at maturity at 29 degrees, the last degree, of Scorpio. This is like the Hermit, wise observer, holding the Light for others on the Path. It is calm and settled at the crossroads, symbolizes that the time has come! Take responsibility and do it, or let it go and move on. Though a minor aspect, it is linked with Pluto, death and healing, because Saturn and Pluto are mutual reception, in each others signs. It is serious, as proven by the magnitude of the Law and President Obama giving a special eulogy the same day.

Newsy Mercury, in one of its own signs, newsy Gemini, is in a 7 minute parallel with Arcturus! Guardian of the Bear, Arcturus is a golden red star, considered one of the two most fortunate stars in the sky, Spica being the other. Currently Arcturis is at 24 Libra 23, the Moon passed over it only seven hours before. Arcturus has a reputation of achieving justice through power as well as riches, honors, high renown, self-determination and prosperity by navigation and voyages.

Mercury was also inconjunct, across the chart, but aside from, Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is Death and Resurrection. It is sharing, cleansing, power, mergers. Capricorn focuses and builds, uses time to advantage, is dependable. It rules elders and authority, laws. They were so profoundly in play. The gay marriage announcement happened the same day President Obama gave the Charleston eulogy for state Senator Rev. Clementa Pinckney, victim of a racial shooting, shot only days before along with eight other people.

The Midheaven, MC, is sextile Chiron the wounded Healer teacher. Chiron in Pisces calls for compassion, a form of spiritual enlightenment. There is a blending, a bonding, that transcends poor behavior of people who are afraid. The honor is won and it is up to those who are happy now to prove themselves, the value of what they have won, and be kind to others yet to understand. In the name of what is won, keep the peace, respect others who have differing opinions, as we have wanted them to respect ours.

Leo Ascendant/Rising Sign is the sign of LIGHT, ruled by the Sun! It is also the sign of the Heart, courage, the rainbow of colors, giving generously, our prowess and performance as a unique individual, and PRIDE! It has exceptional potency because it exactly trines the degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, 26 Sagittarius! It was a time of infusion of the Universe. The ASC also sextiles the Libra (relationships) Moon (the People), linking Past and Present, the greater purpose and it’s history. The history and hearts, small legal battles, state by state, city by city, brought us to the tipping point.

Aquarius is the sign at the Descendant, the place of relationships and equality. Aquarius is how we are so different that we stand out from others. It is genius to eccentric, from loner to the most dedicated community worker/advocate. It brings suit when necessary though prefers unity when possible.

Mars and the Sun are in Cancer, the sign of the People of a nation, culture, our families. And isn’t this what it is all about? Jim Obergefell, the main plaintiff, exited the Supreme Court on Friday in tears. All he wanted was to be recognized as one of the family of his beloved partner of 22 years. Mars is leadership, a fighter, hero. Jim was that human. Mars and the Sun are trining Neptune in Pisces, compassion, dreams, saviors. It was more than a simple win for Jim, it was a spiritual victory too. His partner had died, but not in vain. Love won.

In grateful honor of Jim Obergefell and his 22 year partner John Arthur for their caring bravery.

The chart is for the earliest post I could find, Associated Press, at 10:04 AM Eastern! There were probably others, but this was the earliest I came across. If any of you come across one earlier, please let me know, I’ll revise the chart. In the few possible minutes that could be, so little would change, miniscule at that, I felt comfortable to go ahead with this chart.

Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter!

Born July 23, 1989, Daniel Radcliffe, has 4 planets in Leo!  Aka Harry Potter, in 2009, he was the world’s richest star under the age of 21.  He will be 22 this year.  Daniel supports a Children’s Hospice, and though heterosexual, speaks out for gay rights.  He has won numerous awards, his Saturn Neptune conjunction in Capricorn perfect for such a wizard!  

JK Rowling is a July 31, 1965, and, per a very careful astrological read of the first book, US astrologer Barbara Schermer determined Harry Potter is July 31, 1980 – making Daniel, JK and Harry, all Leos!   

Leo, Bright Lights to 2012!

Whether night or day, Leos themselves light the way!  They catch your eye, often their hair is radiant, you feel their presence when they walk into the room!  Color makes a difference to them, and speaks their hearts and moods.  Notice when and where they wear bright color, what they are doing.  That’s probably what makes them happiest!  Sports are a pleasure, each person, team, having their own colors!  Education, performance, inspiration, open heartedness, generosity, show their gratitude for LIFE!  Working with young people gives a way for their gifts to be carried on, make the world a better place.    

The beginning of 2012 is only 1½ years from now!  What we offer, each person specially like no other, what we hold dear in our hearts, how we give as we can, bring color and light into the lives of others, will make a difference as we make this journey together.  Notice the efforts people make, tell them how it touches your Spirit, that you are honored to be with them, every day.  Feel the beat of your heart, the wind on your skin, the moonlight between your toes, sunlight in your hair, beauty in your eyes, the smile your lips make!  Give thanks for the Great Mystery.  Love on you just the way you are, now and always. Act as if you are, because surely you can be!  We are the 2012 shift!
