Making Sense of Blacksburg Massacre and Confusing Mars in Pisces
Mars is about action, powerful inner drives that are made manifest in sometimes over the top dramas. Pisces is about mystery, confusion and strangeness and after the Virginia Tech tragedies, yesterday was no exemption considering all the difficult, critical and climactic aspects present... We see today, that even with the identity of the serial killer released: We still don't know that much except that Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old senior who was a legal U.S. resident and yes born in 1984 when Pluto was in Scorpio (ruled by Mars)along with Saturn and Neptune was beginning an ingress into Capricorn (ruled by Saturn)- Two heavy malefics in the chart of a loner! According to SJ Mercury News - "He was a loner, and we're having difficulty finding information about him," school spokesman Larry Hincker said. and of course the usual media sensational overview: News reports also said that he may have been taking medication for depression, that he was becoming increasingly violent and erratic, and that he left a note in his dorm in which he railed against "rich kids," "debauchery" and "deceitful charlatans" on campus.
LOOKING BACK A WEEK OR TWO TO MAKE SENSE
Since Mars entered Pisces on the early morning of Good Friday (1:51 AM PDT or 4:51 AM EDT) the news has been even more bizarre then usual. On the 6th of April a Greek Cruise ship that had hit a reef finally sank. By the time Mars entered the sign of the two fishes so intertwined that they are never sure which way to swim, news of ferocious, raging lava spewing out of one of the world's most active volcanos on the French island of La Reunion caught our imagination. Then for all intents and purposes, weird things began to surface in the news.
by April 10th a strange story appeared about how the volcano's fury throws up mystery fish - described as having bulging eyes, heads sometimes protracted by a beak and appear to have surfaced from depths of about 500 metres.
Yes and on April 7th, the world knew that the massive Solomon Island Quake-Tsunami had actually lifted the island of Ranongga up three metres (10 foot).
By April 10th, Mercury ingressed into Aries and language got a little more violent then on April 11th Venus (pleasure-relationships) entered Gemini to create hard aspects for Mars in oceanic Pisces and known to signify victimization - IMUS and "the nappy-headed ho" incident was blown way out of proportion as the victims came out of the woodwork.
NOW WE GOT THE BLACKSBURG MASSACRE.
on the campus of Virginia Tech. in the county of Montgomery in a Balsamic Moon
(darkest part of the lunation ready for New Moon on 4-17-07 @ 7:26 AM PDT or 10:26 AM EDT). Something tells me that this may have ritual murder implications with
a lone gunman? who kills 33 people and doesn't say a word. With Pallas, Mars, North Node, Uranus and asteroid Astrae in Neptune ruled Pisces confusion was the watchword of the day. The police would later say "they thought the two had been shot in a domestic dispute. They thought the gunman had fled the campus."
The chart below set for 7:15 AM EDT time of the first shooting has Mercury-Ceres-Moon with Sun in Aries ruled by Mars now in the sign of hysteria, confusion and yes victims.
Examining the chart we find Venus ruler of Taurus ascendant SQ Mars & Pallas and contraparallel Jupiter (maximizing the number of victims in the 8th house of Death) with a fast applying TSQ forming.
Sun also is applying toward a SQ with Capricorn MidHeaven ruled by that other malefic Saturn in the 4th House putting emphasis on the Alma Mater the end of a matter and yes opposing applying Chiron - the wounded healer in surprising Aquarius (also ruled by Saturn)
Fixed Star connections are also foreboding and morbid with Moon rising with Zosma the star ruling victims (Moon representing women)
Mercury rising with Facies known for ruthlessness - BRUTALITY.
Mercury represents the mental state (violent and hidden in the 12th) which can motivate a striking out at groups (Aquarius on 11th house cusp) as Neptune is posited there opposing ruler Saturn.
How much will we know in the ensuing days about motivations for this massacre?
When we dig deeper into this event chart where Mars is the killer and Venus a significator (relationship triangle?)
