Chris Harper-Mercer—Mass Murderer in Oregon

Chris Harper Mercer was a Leo* with Sun, Mercury, Mars and the South Node in the Sign. Chris wanted attention (Leo) and he finally got it by killing 9 students at Umpqua community college in Oregon and injuring 9 others. The South Node in Leo means that he shouldn’t take the path of self-aggrandizement in his life but, instead, should take the path of the North Node in Aquarius, which is community service. He failed miserably and instead got the attention he craved through violence (Mars) conjunct his South Node.

It seems that Chris’s massacre had a sexual undertone to it because transiting Venus in Leo(love=attention) was conjunct Mars(sex/anger) in Leo while transiting Mars in Virgo was conjunct natal Venus in Virgo.

Venus(love) in prim Virgo in his natal chart is square Saturn (repression), which means he felt unloved, probably by his mother because Chiron, which is a wound which never heals, is in Cancer the sign of the Mother.  Natal Pluto (the dark side) in Scorpio, the sign of death was in a positive aspect to Chiron, which gave Chris a way out of his mother complex. Transiting Pluto was making and opposition to Chiron and stimulating the death aspect.  Further, the Moon, which represents the Mother among other things, is in Taurus and is possibly square Mars (anger) and the South and North Nodes. The transiting Moon in Taurus was squaring transiting Venus, natal Mars, and South Node Conjunction. It’s a wonder that he didn’t kill his mother first.

Chiron in opposition to Neptune and Saturn in Capricorn means that there were problems with Dad and authority figures too. The opposition between the signs of Capricorn and Cancer (Chiron in Cancer) means that there was a split between his parents and this wasn’t easily healed. This left him very confused because transiting Pluto was stimulating the opposition of Neptune and Chiron.

His lack of compassion mentioned by victims or observers is indicated by his lack of personal planets in water signs. With the majority of planets in Earth Signs he really didn’t have any spiritual life; he was captured by the material plane, which was without hope or mercy.

The transiting Sun in Libra (relationships) was square his natal Saturn in Capricorn. A failure in relationships may have instigated this horrible deed. Bigotry left untreated by parents and teachers, failure to monitor gun purchases (he had 14) by parents and the government, and turning a blind eye to Chris’ mental problems led to this tragedy.

How many more of these analyses will be written before the Republican Congress decides to control gun purchases by maniacs.

* He was born in England but I couldn’t find the town so I used Roseburg, OR, where he committed his grievous assaults.

Psychic Vera’s Cosmic Advice October 4

The Moon is in Cancer. Home and family are in focus.  It makes a positive aspect to Neptune early on and we have some spiritual feelings to attend to. A positive aspect to Jupiter mid afternoon gives us some enthusiasm, particularly with work around the phone. Early evening is a relationship glitch as the Moon in sensitive Cancer doesn’t feel like being fair with Mercury in Libra.

 Today the Dalai Lama says: Ethics and inner values without religious content are like water, something we need every day for health and survival.  Ethics and inner values based in a religious context are more  like tea. The tea we drink is mostly composed of water but it also contains some other ingredient—tea leaves, spices, perhaps some sugar or at least in Tibet salt and this makes it more nutritious and sustaining and something we want every day.

Psychic Vera’s Cosmic Advice October 3

The Moon is in Gemini and makes a positive aspect to Venus at 10:18 AM and we have a pleasant social hour but it goes void-of-course until 5:22 PM when it travels into Cancer. Late this evening it makes a discordant aspect to Mercury and communications get snarled. Some of us have easily hurt feelings when the Moon is in Cancer.

Psychic Vera Cosmic Advice October 2

A square to Jupiter in the morning means that some of us could be too enthusiastic or emotional. A positive aspect to Uranus this evening gives us some support for trying some new, particularly in communications. It’s a Sun trine Moon in Air signs day so communications with partners are favored. It’s a good day for research and writing.  Today the Dalai Lama says: In offering an understanding human life, which transcends our temporary physical existence, religion gives hope and strength to those facing adversity. For all its benefits, however, in bringing people together, giving guidance and solace, and offering visions of the good life, which people can strive to emulate, I do not think religion is indefensible to the spiritual life.  *In Mayan Astrology it’s 5 Men also known as Eagle. Let’s get a deeper knowledge of human nature.  Gardening: Moon in Gemini: Research gardening.  Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves. Socrates said an unexamined life is not worth living, and another ancient Greek said, Know thyself. We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.   *I always use How to Practice Mayan Astrology by Scofield and Orr as a reference

Psychic Vera’s Cosmic Advice October 1

The Moon is void-of-course in Taurus until 1:03 PM when it travels into Gemini. It makes an opposition to Saturn mid-afternoon and it’s easy to get discouraged over communication or computer difficulties. It makes a square to Mars this evening and tempers may flare. A positive aspect to Mercury later on makes communications better.

 Today the Dalai Lama says: Buddhahood is a state free of all obstructions to knowledge and disturbing emotions. It is the state in which the mind is fully evolved.

Psychic Vera Cosmic Advice September 30th

The Moon is in Taurus. A positive aspect to Jupiter early in the morning gets us off to a good start with an enthusiastic viewpoint. A Moon in a good aspect to Pluto this morning is a makes renovation, research, particularly with regards to financial matters and practical projects go well. When the Moon is in Taurus, we can enjoy gardening, cooking, and pottery and jewelry making.

The Sun conjuncts Mercury. Communications are highlighted today. There could be difficulties with computers.

Today the Dalai Lama says: From one point of view we can say that we have human bodies and are practicing the Buddha’s teachings and are thus much better than insects. But we can also say that insects are innocent and free from guile, whereas we often lie and misrepresent ourselves in devious ways in order to achieve our ends or better ourselves. From this perspective we are much worse than insects.

Sun in Libra

September 23rd to October 23rd

Libra is the sign of the balance and its main thrust in life is to deal equitably in human relationships.  It is often considered wishy-washy because it has a hard time making decisions; it is always trying to balance two sides of any question.  Higher level Libras are the best diplomats and ombudsmen because they can always see another person’s perspective, trying to smooth over difficulties in relationships.  Lower level Libras still have a focus on relationships but they can’t seem to get along in one.  They are rarely diplomatic, often acting in a gauche manner.  My higher level Libra friends always seem to cooperate, to think of my needs as well as their own.  They are kind and supportive.  The Lower level Libras I’ve met are rude and are dense about relationships, so much lower in consciousness from the higher level natives.  Lower levels are struggling to make the transition from personal wants and needs to understanding and promoting right Human relations as Alan Oken puts it in his book, Soul Centered Astrology.  According to Oken, Libra’s keyword phrase is Let Choice be Made.  There is a tension in Libra he says of opposing forces needing harmony and balance.  This is the battle between the lower and the higher selves.  It is here that Libra is tested and right judgment and proper use of love are cultivated.

When the Sun is in Libra our focus should be relationships:  How to approach them from a balanced perspective.  How to be fair and equitable.  We can also spend time beautifying our surroundings.

Relationships and marriage will be a primary focus for Aries this month as the sign of the ram can be generally too self-centered and me first.  For Taurus the Libra month is a time to contemplate relationships in the working environment, as well as supporting justice and fairness for fellow employees. Health matters are best solved by seeking balance, with special attention paid to the kidneys. The Libra month is Gemini’s time to relax and have some fun, to pursue hobbies, enjoying time with loved ones and children.  Cancer will be exploring relationships with family members and beautifying their homes. Leo will realize that the give and take in conversation is more interesting than dominating it, and will be making more short distance trips with partners, focusing on relationships with siblings and neighbors.  Virgo will be spending the Libra month exploring their financial situation and coming to an equitable solution for money difficulties with partners.  For Libra this is their time for putting themselves forward, for hogging some of the limelight for themselves instead of always sharing it with someone else.  Scorpio’s hibernation time is during the month of Libra.  They feel more vulnerable, particularly with regards to their relationships and need this month to sort things out.  Sagittarius likes to meet up with friends and participate in groups in late September and into October while Capricorn will be paying more attention to career issues and relationships with authority figures.  Aquarians may be traveling or focusing on higher education while Pisces will be paying more attention to sexual issues in relationships, questions about death and joint resources.

Saturn in Sagittarius

September 17, 2015 to December 2017

Saturn in Sagittarius may not be too difficult as Sign placements go but Sagittarius, Gemini, Pisces, and Virgo will be learning more lessons then other signs.

In general, there will be lessons via religion and spiritual work. Some of our noses will be to the grindstone in college and other forms of higher education. Long distance travel may be more difficult. Bookstores, publishing houses may face more obstacles. More people may face legal proceedings. Churches may have to close due to lack of parishioners. I am concerned about the Pope who is a Sagittarius and may suffer setbacks for his strong stands on poverty, materialism and capitalism, and hypocrisy.

 Aries may experience a crisis in faith but end up with a straighter spiritual path. Taurus will face obstacles with joint finances, sexual issues. Gemini will learn about relationships. Cancer may have issues with work and their health. Leo may need to work harder in their relationships with children. Virgo has obstacles to face in their home, with family members. Libra needs to be careful in traffic and work on relationships with siblings. Scorpio could have money problems but will have a firmer foundation monetarily after Saturn is finished. Sagittarius should guard their health. Capricorn will be spending more time alone meditating. Aquarius will learn to be more responsible with friends and group associations. Pisces will have to deal with career issues by taking more responsibility.

Jupiter in Virgo

August 11, 2015—September 2016
Jupiter in Virgo brings quite a change to society’s focus and our consciousness. From this last year’s focus of Jupiter in Leo self-absorption, the emphasis will be placed on the personal benefits of service to our communities. We can make headway on difficult to solve health issues. Paying close attention to details will be important. The self-absorption of a Donald Trump is coming to an end. People will be taking more photos of themselves being of service to others rather than mugging for Leo (me, me, me) oriented selfies. Companies will benefit from health oriented ads while schools will provide more training for doctors and other health professionals. There will be more do-it-yourself manuals and alternative health books published.
Virgos will benefit the most from Jupiter in its sign while Capricorn, Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces will also expand.
Aries will benefit with health matters and from solving work related issues. Taurus will expand in relationships with children, creativity. Gemini will benefit with home matters and possibly buying a home. Cancer will enjoy being studious, relationships with neighbors, siblings. They will have more short distance traveling. Leo can improve their financial matters. Virgo will be less introverted, more expansive in the community and their health will improve. It’s time for Libra to spend more time with themselves and in the background. Creative projects and attending to spiritual matters are enjoyable. Scorpio can attract more friends and group associations while Sagittarius will benefit by getting more public exposure and career advancement. Capricorn may enjoy long trips and expanding their education while Aquarius benefits from partners or other people’s money and more sexual opportunities. Pisces will benefit from new partnerships.

Psychic Vera Figures Out Donald Trump

 

In her weekly address, Psychic Vera claimed that Donald Trump’s  big mouth makes him a lonely isolate.  “Trump is a low level Gemini who says something, no matter how inane, cruel or ridiculous as soon as he thinks it. This is the trademark of the negative Gemini, who splits people apart instead of bringing them together, like higher side Geminis do. The ruler of his Gemini Sun, she went on to say, is Mercury in Cancer, in a discordant aspect to Neptune. There is effectively no barrier between his conscious and subconscious minds, and no ability to censure indecorous thoughts. Neptune also creates deception and he is under the illusion that he will set the United States right again, fashioned in his own chaotic image. “Donald Trump acts like he’s demented,” Vera said.

His Gemini Sun is in the 10th House of the public, which means he demands attention. This is reinforced by a Leo Rising Sign with Mars in Leo right on the Ascendant. Leo demands attention and can’t live without it, probably to compensate for feelings of inadequacy and feeling unloved. Most likely he longed for the tenderness of mother love with Venus (love) in Cancer (mother) but it’s in conjunction with Saturn(restriction) and he never got what he wanted.

Sometimes truth slips out like when he blasted George W. Bush for sending soldiers to war in Iraq, seeing them come back wounded and then charging them over 100,000 dollars for giving a speech at a charity function. Most of the time, however, the reverse is true. There is no truth in the statement that all Latinos are criminals and rapists and should be kept out of the country. He also more recently said that 9-11 wouldn’t have happened if he was president because he doesn’t like brown people.

“Donald Trump is the fool or court jester of the Republican Party,” Vera said. He should wear a jester’s cap with jingling bells to identify him as such. He is a channel for the thoughts of other Republican candidates who may actually agree with Trump secretly but dare not blurt it out.”
