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.

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.

Adam Lanza Shooting  - Sad and frightened Children

Terribly sad, horrified.  You have likely heard by now of Adam Lanza’s assault.  He shot 20 children, 6 adults – including his Mother, and himself.  There is no greater sorrow than losing your children.  Important matters raised are gun control, mental illness and its care, communications and intervention, our personal responsibility.  Astrologically, we have been having a difficult aspect related to this kind of event, Uranus square Pluto, since 2010, that continues through March 2015.  There are uncomfortable things we must learn about and take care of.  Especially at this time before the Mayan Alignment Portal, Christmas and New Year, this event is such a reminder. Let there be Peace on Earth, and let it begin with Me.

First, here is Adam Lanza’s birth chart.

Adam Lanza Astology Birth Chart, born April 22, 1992.

We don’t have a birth time for Adam,
so this is a Sun on the Ascendant, Solar Houses chart.
The chart is calculated for Noon to get median positions for the Planets.

Adam has what the Magi astrologers call a ‘Flying Eagle’ symmetrical formation – from Jupiter, it links to a Grand Earth Trine to the Moon and Sun (the blue triangle).  The Flying Eagle starts there at the bottom of the chart, the short green line, the two blue lines and two purple lines extending upward into the chart, they are linked by the red line, a square between the North Node and Mercury.  This aspect pattern has mixed effects.  The trines, Jupiter to North Node, and Chiron to Mercury, bring blessings of the ability to learn.  Yet the inconjuncts, the purple lines, Jupiter to Mercury, and Chiron to the North Node, bring stresses and adjustments, an unsurety of where you stand, always having to be on your toes.

The Grand Trine  In this case, Jupiter in Virgo can be hugely self-critical, the Moon in Capricorn can be susceptible to emotional depression.  It is thought not to be empathetic, and cold to receiving nurturing, or thinks their Mother is cold.  Sun in Taurus dislikes being pushed or disturbed, so it can be a closed system.  Jupiter in Virgo can also be well studied, so deems itself superior.  What could anyone else say to help, yet there is pain.  Mercury and Venus in Aries need to be independent, so again, tough to reach this person.

There are three seriously difficult aspects.  They are of a type that I would not recommend marriage with this person, likely the person would never marry.

  1. Sun square Chiron in Sun’s sign Leo – possible unhappy marriage, difficulties with sense of personal woundedness.
  2. Venus square his Uranus conjunct Neptune exact at 18 degrees – with Uranus, unstable, needs for freedom, especially with Venus in Aries of independence, not a natural togetherness placement for Venus.  With Neptune, possible overwhelming, even addictive fears, real or imagined, triggering anger.  Mercury in Aries can have a hair trigger temper, completely embarrassing to Capricorn Moon, and to Pluto in its own sign Scorpio, that doesn’t like to show its hand.   With Saturn in Aquarius closely related to the pattern at 17 degrees, feelings of being trapped, not just by others, but by oneself.
  3. Saturn square Pluto – One of the most difficult aspects for anyone.  At worst, there can be sexual abuse, a deep sense of impotency, hatreds.  With Mars, even though in gentle Pisces, it is still a planet of anger, action and guns.  It’s trine with Pluto, extremes and death, the anger came out in a lethal tsunami.

Moon of Mother in Capricorn, and Saturn of Father in Aquarius, there were likely feelings of super controlling on one hand, abandonment on the other, from both parents.  So all alone.

Here is the chart of the shooting.

Adam Lanza Shooting Astrology Chart

Calculated for the 911 Call

Many times I find a major event happens just after triggering planets activate the points.  The Moon has just activated the Jupiter Yod with Saturn and Pluto.  Jupiter maximizes principles a person has, Saturn brings down the hammers, Pluto goes to extremes of retribution, even Death.  The Capricorn Moon, emotions, just crossed over Pluto, perhaps an extreme of depression, that Capricorn is susceptible to.  The Moon had also triggered the Uranus square Pluto, erratic, extreme ups and downs.  When Uranus isn’t genius, it can be considered a loner, sometimes insane.

Mercury and Jupiter are opposite, exaggerating disassociated thinking. They are also in each other’s signs, which may have the effect of merging too many thoughts, Jupiter in Gemini, trillions, and Mercury in Sagittarius, hard to focus, won’t stop. Overwhelmed.

The chart Ascendant is at a degree of ending, 29 degrees, Capricorn. What was done, was done. Abrupt, concise, no fixing it.

Adam Lanza  Astrology - Birth Chart Compared with Shooting Chart

We don’t have Adam’s birth time,
so the Moon’s degree may vary,
ignore his house placements, do not use his ASC, MC aspects.

Looking at planets in close active degree connections with each other, there are several potent activators.

Transiting planets Uranus and Pluto are strongly likely activating Adam’s Moon and are activating Adam’s Mercury.  Moon is emotional and Mercury is logical.  They are likely at odds in his birth chart, one could be cold and calculating, the other hot, maybe angry, definitely impetuous!

Uranus and Mercury were both at the degree of Adam’s Jupiter, both were challenging his principles, bringing criticism of himself, him of others, to the fore.

Uranus conjunct Adam’s Mercury in Aries, at the SAME DEGREE! Totally erratic radical angry thinking, wanting to shock! This would only happen once every 84 years, for some people not in their lifetime!

It is likely that the transiting Moon in Capricorn, conjunct Adam’s natal Moon in Capricorn was the trigger of the event.  The Moon is illogical, Lunar, hence, lunacy.  In Capricorn, feelings can be internalized to the point of implosion, a breaking point.  It feels trapped, nowhere to go, no one to listen, to understand.  It feels failed, and is shamed beyond understanding.  They say depression is anger turned inward.  There can come a point when it all doesn’t fit anymore.  If the ingrained chronic condition is to conceal forbidden feelings, it can go unconscious, just loses it.  I don’t know if you can imagine what pain this might be.  The Moon had just crossed Pluto, planet of extremes and intensity, and Death.
________________________________________________________________

If any of you have these planetary placements, PLEASE, do not think that these are the only expressions of their energy.  Many of us have difficult aspects, and we live well with them everyday, learning, growing, yes, some errors.  If you do think you could use some help, confide with someone you trust, who is experienced with life, who is encouraging and celebrates you!

If you have children, please discuss school security measures.  Most importantly, let them talk, lovingly assure them, help them feel safe.  Know they will regress a bit if they are scared.  Give, let, the time it takes.  Know who your children are with.  If you have doubts, err on the side of protection.

May I encourage you all to BE with young people? Don’t let them be alone, especially the quiet or intimidating ones.  Don’t let them be alone after school.  Join after school programs.  Spend time with them doing good things they enjoy to build their confidence.  Give them a safe place, to be in, to talk, be heard without judgment.  Assure their fears.  Tell them out loud what you love about them.  Every day.  Art, sports, nature, are a few ways to engage them.  If you don’t know how to do these things, learn yourself.  Take a parenting class, communications workshop.  If either you or your beloved children need counseling, get it, for BOTH of you.  It takes mutual understanding, no blame.  See your priest, pastor, rabbi.  Whatever it takes.  Gather your courage and love; it will be worth the reward.
