Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1. Pallas septile Pluto (wide but bolstered by Moon); Pluto trine Jupiter (ruler of Pallas).
2. Venus quincunx Neptune and South Node.
3. Venus quincunx Pluto.
4. Moon septile Pluto (slightly after the start of the event)
5. Sun quindecile Pluto.
I dislike these Jupiter-Pluto aspects (such as the current trine) for their mundane effects. They seem to correspond to times when ideologues get especially violent.
