Cincinnati’s Mass Shooting
Ed Kluska’s Astrology Newsletter
The 08:42 AM entry from yesterday’s newsletter stated, “Moon 180 Mars intensifies any situation. There is more likely to be impatience, intensity, impulsiveness, strong desires, and even anger and forceful actions. If you are trying to resolve an issue with someone, for example, be aware that volatile emotions are more likely than rational thinking.”
About 09:00 AM yesterday, a shooter entered the front entrance of Fifth Third Bank headquarters (a 30-story building towering over the middle of downtown Cincinnati) and opened fire in the lobby area where he shot at people and police officers. He killed three people. Another two were seriously injured including a woman shot twelve times. Officers responded within seconds of the shooting. No police officers were injured. They shot the gunman through a plate glass.
It seems the suspect drove his car from his apartment north of Cincinnati and parked north of downtown. He then walked south to the middle of town which means he probably started his harrowing journey around 08:00 AM.
The 08:42 AM entry from yesterday’s newsletter does not mean this tragic shooting was supposed to happen. It says that this type of energy was more likely around the time frame given. It could manifest in many ways. One of the reasons I write these newsletters is to provide you with a sense about which time frames are more favorable and which are more cautionary.
According to reports, “the shooter could have killed a hundred or more people with all the ammunition he was carrying and all the people walking around the busiest part of downtown at the start of a business day.”
Cincinnati's Mayor Cranley said, “It’s heartbreaking. This is not normal, and it shouldn’t be viewed as normal. This is abnormal. No other industrialized country has this level of active multiple shooting on a regular basis. I think there’s something deeply sick at work here, and we as a country have got to deal with it.”
My October 04, 2017 newsletter “Gun Issues Heating Up” is also relevant.
“477 days. 521 mass shootings. Zero action by Congress.”
This was yesterday’s New York Times editorial headline. Underneath was a calendar marking each day there was a least one mass shooting in the United States over the past sixteen months. A mass shooting is defined as involving four more people injured or killed in a single event at the same time and location.
In astrology, Sun represents people with authority and leadership in any society, especially men. Pluto represents politics, power, funding, and complicated issues.
Mars represents guns, bullets, injuries, violence, and forceful acts of aggression. Saturn represents rules, regulations, laws, and controls.
With Sun in conflict with Pluto until this coming Monday and Mars in conflict with Saturn until next Wednesday, all the differences and power struggles in our country regarding violence, guns, and gun control will magnify and come to a head.
With both these aspects being stressful and conflictual, it’s unlikely any reasonable solutions or agreements will come forth, at least for now
As you know, there are millions of comments, blogs, discussions, and editorials about the recent massacre in Las Vegas and the controversies involving gun control. These editorial comments are relevant.
“The death rate from gun violence in the United States is on average 25 times higher than in high–income nations with sensible gun control laws. Making more dangerous weapons available to more people increases our danger. No number of weapons, including semi-automatic weapons, in the hands of tragic victims in Las Vegas would save their lives.”
“This kind of violence is no longer exceptional. No other affluent country can match our massacres or, in the face of them, our paralysis. We stand out boldly in this regard. We lead.”
“In Newtown, Connecticut in 2012, 26 people perished, 20 of them children. In Orlando four years later, 49 died. And in Las Vegas, the count so far is 59. What’s the trip wire for urgency and action? Triple digits?”
“If the heartbreaking massacre of 20 six and seven-year-olds in an elementary school in Newton Connecticut nearly five years ago couldn’t bring about that change in culture, I doubt the latest tragic in Las Vegas will either.”
“Las Vegas was one of the worst but hardly the first. And it demands more than the gauzy pieties and press-a-button platitudes that too many politicians spout.”
