Mars is Strong as the Verdict Comes down in the Mehserle Case
Former BART officer convicted of involuntary manslaughter
The news hit the streets a little after 4 PM PDT when the verdict in the Johannes Mehserle case was read. The cold blooded killing or Oscar Grant was caught on video by several witnesses. Mehserle, fired a single round into the back of Grant, who was black and was lying face-down on the station platform. The Criminal Injustice system is broken perhaps as much as the BP negligence exhibited in the Gulf Oil Catastrophe.
Many persons all over the US from LA to Oakland will be immersed in a sense of hopeless resignation with Venus opposing Neptune @ 4:56 PM PDT. These two planets tend to create
irrational and impractical solutions where emotions dominate. Venus the partner to Mars, then turns Void of Course till July 10th when she changes from super dramatic Leo into earthy practical Virgo. In the meantime when Venus is Void of Course, intense emotions precipitate action. Risks are taken that may not be supported by others. Impulsive decisions will mean major conflicts. Keep in mind that when Oscar was killed on Jan. 1, 2009, Uranus was in Pisces. Uranus rules technology and Pisces signifies video and imagery which reflects the multiple video of Grant's killing on the internet creating a mega collective of witnesses. Pisces of course is the sign of the martyr. Now that Uranus is in Aries the sign of the activist and warrior
resolution to this case will not end well in the short term.

The Chart Below is set for the time of reading the Verdict in LA
Notice that Scorpio is rising @ critical 22 degrees. In traditional astrology 22 degrees of any sign is considered dangerous. Mars is the ruler of the chart below since Mars is considered the ancient ruler of the Scorpion. Expect a show of combative, militaristic strength from the police with Mars in Virgo. In the chart below Mars-Vesta are both heading toward restrictive Saturn. Virgo represents training, service and conditioned mentality along with protocol. Pluto the modern ruler of this chart is in the 3rd. House in destructive TSQ with Jupiter (legal rulings)and Uranus both in aggressive Aries and Saturn @ 29 degrees Virgo. Without a doubt the reactions to this verdict will catalyze rioting and mayhem.
With less than three days away from a Total Solar Eclipse (July 11th @ 19:34:38 UTC)
passions are high as resolutions to crisis seem distant. Tensions and nervous excitement
has been building since early morning when an overly talkative Gemini moon begin
with a sextile Uranus in Aries @ 1:53 AM. Mars is powerful these days particularly with
Uranus stationing retrograde on July 5th. Mars currently transiting in Virgo near Vesta (the asteroid which represents focus and commitment and can transmute karma by purposeful
actions/work.) Unfortunately Moon in communicative Gemini is applying to a square with Mars
