(Astrology Explored) For much of the day the details of the horror of what happened at a small town elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut was obscured by a police lockdown of information. Parents were told to wait by their phones but not to come to the school. Eventually, the unbelievable story was told to the public. At 9:40 AM a troubled man in his twenties entered the main office, shoot the principal and school psychologist, then walked in the kindergarten class taught by his mother and shot children in the class, then killed himself. At 3:23 PM the casualty count was a total of 27 dead, 20 of whom are children. There is an investigation of the mother’s home near the school, where state police confirmed someone else is dead.
The shooter is reported by the media as Adam Lanza, 20 years old. His 24 year old brother Ryan, originally identified as the shooter, is in custody we do not know why at this time.
President Obama made a statement as he wiped away tears, saying “Today our hearts are broken.”
Obviously, as I writing this, law enforcement is trying to piece together the reasons for this awful crime, parents across the country are trying to comprehend the how such a thing can happen, and a nation begins to mourn the deaths of 20 little children and the six adults responsible for their care who died.
Below is the horoscope of the event according to information provided by media. Apparently two women associated with the Lanza brothers are missing as well.
The scene unfolded as the ascendant hit 29 degrees of Capricorn. 29 degrees, at the cusp of changing signs, is often known as the degree of decision. The Moon is conjunct the planet of death and transformation Pluto. Both these planets form one leg a yod, Saturn the other, and Jupiter the apex.
This Jupiter is the focal point of this chart as it receives not only the energy of the yod, but a t-square as well involving Chiron/Neptune and Mercury in Sagittarius.
We see a chart fueled by pain, not rage. Most likely we will find out in as time goes on is that the shooter suffered from bi-polar disorder.
For a state battered and bruised by three major devastating storms in less than two years, this last tragedy is just too much to bear.
Please send your prayers towards the parents and children and the community of Newtown, CT.
