The chart of the Texas shooting
This is the chart of the shooting yesterday in Houston Texas (drawn at www.astro.com). Just like in the charts of the Dunblane Massacre and the school shooting in Germany, Mars and Uranus are prominently placed in this one. At the moment of the drive-by shooting at the Texas University Mars was important as the first planet rising before the Sun and Venus. Mars is quintile Uranus (offering an opportunity for a creative way to 'explode'). Uranus is ruling the Ascendant and Uranus doesn't make major aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees. That makes Uranus an important planet in this chart. Uranus is trine Midheaven.
Pluto is also 'calling' (not making major aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees). Pluto rules the Midheaven.
That completes the same picture as in the charts that you can see in the earlier post, about Dunblane and Germany. Apparently, when Mars, Uranus and Pluto are important and one of these planets has a contact with the MC, it is a risky moment of possible violence. The combination is frequently active in case of accidents and impulsive (sometimes dramatic) acts. More about the combination of Mars-Uranus in natal charts, on my site Astromarkt or click the labels for more info and examples.
