Congressional Baseball Shooting

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Congressional_baseball_shooting

I wasn't going to write on this event, as only one was killed.  My friend the conservative blogger Promethean Antagonist suggested I take a look.  He sees the assault on Republican congressmen by a homicidal Bernie Sanders supporter as "first blood" in a new American civil war.  So I look a look, and found that transiting Uranus was merely hours after an exact square with the US (Sibley) Pluto.  Uranus is very much a "spark" astrologically, and Pluto is very much a "powder-keg".  Let's hope that cool heads prevail. 




There is a very weak Bloodbath Formula on the event chart, and for the concurrent shooting at a UPS facility in San Francisco.

Astrology of Alzheimers

Here is an article using a number of examples to link dementia to the asteroid Hypnos.  In this post I'll use mostly the same charts to make the case that dementia is related to Pallas/Chiron connections.  Maybe it's both.  Or neither, as you'd want a much larger sample to seriously make a case. 

Aaron Copeland:  Chiron conjunct Pallas ruler Saturn
Glen Campbell:  Chiron trine Pallas and sextile Pallas ruler Venus
Charlton Heston:  Pallas parallel Chiron
Ronald Reagan:  Pallas parallel and widely conjunct Chiron
Robin Williams:  Pallas novile Chiron which is square Pallas co-ruler Saturn. 
Charles Bronson:  Pallas exactly quadrinovile Pallas
Barry Goldwater:  Pallas quintile Chiron
Rita Hayworth:  Chiron at midpoint of Pallas and Pallas ruler Jupiter

Alois Alzheimer:  Pallas tightly conjunct Chiron

Orlando Shooting

https://www.clickorlando.com/news/shooting-investigated-at-warehouse-in-orange-county





Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.
2.  Neptune semisquare Venus and square Second House ruler Sun.
3.  Pluto widely square Venus and quadrinovile Venus ruler Mars.
4.  Moon ruled by Pluto.
5.  Sun quincunx Pluto.

The Pallas/Pluto square is on the way out:  violence should be decreasing.

Islamic Terror: London Bridge

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4569638/Car-ploughs-20-people-London-Bridge.html



Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.
2.  Neptune semisquare Venus; South Node in the Second House.
3.  Pluto square Venus.
4.  Moon square Pluto.
5.  Sun contraparallel Pluto.

Some of the orbs are wide here, hence the low body count and lack of concurrent mass-killing events.

Paris Climate Treaty Withdrawal

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-pulls-u-s-out-paris-climate-agreement-n767066

President Trump has withdrawn the US from the Paris Climate Treaty, yesterday.  Without a precise time of ratification for the treaty, there was no clear indication that a major negative event would occur to the treaty (i.e. no obvious transits against planets).  It is probably reasonable to assume that yesterday's transits and progressions against the treaty signing chart would have indicated hard transits against the angles, which are dependent on the exact time of the natal chart.

It also may have been possible to predict that Trump would withdraw from the treaty, had we known in advance when he was going to announce his decision on the treaty.  We could have done this by checking for Sun/Mercury/North-Node to Pallas transits and progressions against the charts for the USA and for Trump.  These would have indicated a potential "libertarian" event.  Here they are for yesterday:



Transiting Sun square US progressed Pallas; transiting Mercury square US Pallas.




Transiting Sun quincunx Trump Pallas; transiting Pallas sextile Trump Sun; transiting Sun quindecile Trump progressed Pallas; transiting North Node trine Trump progressed Pallas
