Passion in the spotlight: P Sun conjunct Mars square Venus

Scott Ritter, famous anti-war UN inspector in Iraq, is a suspect now. A so called 15 year old on the web was in fact the police... There are a few transits, progressions and natal aspects in line with the events. They are reflecting: spotlight on intense passion and unbalancing suspicion for now, even without hour of birth.

1. His progressed Sun is conjunct Mars in Virgo (the Mars that likes to keep it clean, neat and like a virgin) and square Venus in Gemini (the Venus that prefers 'youth').
The progression of the Sun shows us where the attention is in a certain period of life. The Sun now sheds a light over his passions (Venus-Mars). In fact, the progression brings his passions into the spotlights! From the police's point of view: his passions (Venus-Mars) drew their attention (Sun).

The natal chart has Venus square Mars and both are afflicted by Pluto: that is reflecting intense and challenging passions, probably causing problems. Also Mars conjunct Pluto is an aspect that is strongly related to the use and abuse of power, influence, money, politics and force. Mars-Pluto in the chart of this man might be related to his political fight against war, too. The combination of Mars and Pluto gives an enormous energy and drive. Ebertin related Mars-Pluto afflictions to 'victims of war'. It is also a combination for making political enemies. There is always more than one way to see the effect of a person's aspect...The same drive can be used in various ways. For more about Mars and Pluto, see Astromarkt...

2. Transit Neptune is inconjunct his progressed Mercury.
Mercury-Neptune combinations often pop-up in cases of suspicion and in the charts of suspects. And I would like to add: in case of gossip going around. Famous example: Friedman case.
I wrote about Mercury-Neptune before in a post about lies and Mercury's role:
(...)Sometimes people with a prominent Mercury-Neptune combination in their charts become the victim of false information or others simply don't believe what they are saying because it sounds like if the person is inventing it (thinking too long, known for having a fantasy etc....).

3. There is a combination of 'restricted freedom' in the natal chart: Sun opposition Saturn and semi sextile Uranus, reflecting a possible period in jail or limitations as he sees them.
