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.

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.
