I have been having so much fun with my book, "Signs of the Tines: The Ultimate Astrological Cookbook", that I have been doing a lot of food related, fun chart castings. Yesterday brought the fun to a halt and brought us back to reality.
If you remember a few weeks ago I made an entry called "Feeling Confused" where I spoke about the wild Stellium - the five planets all in Aries, the sign of raw, male energy. I called it one of the craziest charts ever -and spoke of angry Aries.
Well sadly the dreamy Pisces Stellium is now gone but we still have Mars and the Sun still in Mars' natural ruler - Aries, the warrior in conjunction. This conjunction is opposing a retrograded Saturn in secretive Scorpio. Mars and Saturn are always a sign of potential violence when they are in disharmony - and Saturn is now retrograded - added fuel to the fire.
Mars/Sun are in the 9th house - a fire house that is associated with foreign affairs. However, Saturn is close to home in the 3rd house. Because Mars/ Saturn are heading into the 8th house - the house of power and unstable Uranus and Mercury are in the 8th already - I am thinking this is a domestic terror perhaps helped by tactics learned from foreign terror groups - but someone who is feeling powerless and hidden from society.
The 3rd and 6th houses are cadent - or houses of things hidden. We will find that this is someone that had gone under the radar of law enforcement - either a person or group that is hidden from us - or was.
Pluto retrograde in the fifth makes me think of a unhappy kid.
Predicting terror attacks is not "my thing" - I prefer food and past life analysis but there it is. We can only pray for the victims and yes, for the deluded perpetrator too.
