Dunblane Massacre, 13 years ago
Yesterday it was 13 years ago that on 13 March 1996 in Dunblane (Scotland) Thomas Watt Hamilton killed 16 children and one adult on a primary school. The killer, who was probably a pedophile, was 43 at the time. You see the chart of the moment of the event and on the outer side are the positions on the killer's day of birth at noon (as his birth time is unknown).
Notice that the killer has Sun square Pluto and a Scorpio Moon. It seems that anger about allegations about pedophily were a reason for 'revenge' and that is corresponding with the nature of Scorpio and Pluto. With 60% of his placements in fixed signs he ws likely not to forget easily and will hold on to his objectives. At the final moment his Mars in Scorpio (that is opposition Venus, reflecting passions and sexual tension) was exactly square the Midheaven of the time and place of the event.
The chart of the event has Uranus in the eight equal house, conjunct Midheaven and ruling Midheaven. Mars is the most elevated planet, rises before the Sun and is square Ascendant. Just like in the chart of the shooting in Germany, Mars and Uranus are prominent. Read about the effect of Mars - Uranus on my site Astromarkt. (Mars is the symbol of fire, being fired and firing. Uranus symbolizes news, shocks and incidents)
Ken Gilmore did a splendid study regarding this event. It is called 'Who will survive'.
