Pablo Escobar

I've just binge-watched most of Season 1 of the Netflix series "Narcos", chronicling the career of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar and the campaign by governments to bring him down.  Escobar was an infamous mass-murderer on top of being a supremely successful drug dealer.  Violent criminals are philosophically "anti-libertarian" or "Dionysian" and their astrological charts share features reflecting this.  In the case of murderers, the Bloodbath Formula will virtually always appear in the birth chart.




Escobar's Bloodbath Formula:
1.  Pallas square Jupiter, conjunct South Node, and ruled by Venus which is contraparallel Pluto.
2.  Venus square Neptune.
3.  Venus contraparallel Pluto.
4.  Moon trine Pluto.
5.  Sun trine/contraparallel Pluto.


Some other aspects of interest:

Moon-Jupiter-Neptune T-square:  befitting a distributor of drugs.

South Node conjunct Neptune and North Node in the Second House:  converting drugs into money. I've seen the North Node in the Second in the charts of other successful businessmen (both legal and otherwise). 

Pisces Rising:  again with the drug dealing

Mars conjunct Saturn in the Seventh:  the Mars/Saturn connection seems to come up (in my experience) in the charts of builders of organizations.  In the Seventh it may also suggest struggles with partners and enemies. 


Had Escobar focused more on his political career and less on his drug empire, he might have made less money but had a much longer career as a criminal.  For the State is the most powerful criminal organization of all, and it will always neutralize or kill its competition.

  1. I would have to say that this is the first time that i have heard of a natal aspect on 14 degree orb. This seems a little unorthodox.

    1. Richard Tarnas goes up to 15, and vedic/ancient systems consider all planets in the same sign to be conjunct. But I don't usually go that wide, and it's possible I made a mistake somewhere. I don't know which aspect you're referring to here, so I can't mount a defense or admit a mistake.
