Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's apparent suicide this week is not an overtly political event, but helps add to the evidence presented in this blog that the asteroid Pallas represents intelligence, logic, and ethics. We see this in dramatic fashion when transits/progressions involving Pallas are inevitably correlated with when persons or other entities commit acts that demonstrate a lapse or challenge to one's reason and ethics.
As of his death, Bourdain's natal Pallas at 5 Pisces was under semisquare aspect by transiting Pluto at 20 Capricorn. Transiting Jupiter at 14 Scorpio was widely trine his Pallas at 5 Pisces. Pluto-Pallas events
are indicative of ethical crises, and Jupiter-Pallas events are common
during public scandals and suicides.
