Chart of the day of birth of an American sniper

The chart of the day of birth of Chris Kyle (born April 8, 1974 in Odessa, Texas) contains the material to make a sniper. I will show you how. 

Of course, not every person born that day became a sniper, but in certain circumstances and situations, with the right gender and health, they could have been that person. I’ll tell you where in the astrological positions on that day, the sniper is. The hour of birth is unknown, so that the angular positions are missing, as well as the right degree of the Scorpio Moon. But, Scorpio Moon IS a courageous moon position, as I mentioned before on this blog. 

As he was born under Aries, with that Scorpio Moon, we get a Martian character, moreover because his Mars is Out of Bounds, drawing attention to activity, energy, manhood, arms, men, work, iron and all other things that are part of the astrological symbol Mars.

What more does it take to become a soldier in war times? I think it takes discipline, courage, a sense of adventure and Mars-Saturn-Pluto for the issue of untimely death. He’s got it. I already mentioned Scorpio Moon with Sun Aries; there is Mars trine Uranus and there is Saturn semi square Mars/Pluto. 

It is not just because of his chart that he became the most lethal sniper in history. As a child he got his first gun and he was a hunter from that moment on. That was with progressed Sun opposition Uranus (for a change in life and lifestyle started by other persons).

He died with a progressed Sun-Uranus aspect, too. When he was murdered his Sun had progressed to the 27th degree of Taurus, inconjunct his natal Uranus. This makes me think that Sun/Moon midpoint was opposite Uranus at birth (so that his birth was in the first hour after midnight, but that is just speculation).

On the day of his death, February 2, 2013, there was also a quindecile (165d) of Progressed Sun and Transit Saturn. The Uranus inconjunct and Saturn quindecile are mirroring, by means of minor t&p’s, the sudden and unexpected event with a loss involved with a very frustrating ending.

Here you see the chart of the day of birth with progressions for February 2, 2013:

This year, 2 years after death, with transit Jupiter trine his Sun the Texas Governor declared February 2 to be ‘Chris Kyle-day’. Jupiter’s trines make a person either more confident and happy or successful, even after death.

It is a fact that the story of Chris Kyle is the story of a hero for one and the story of a murderer for another. Astrology and charts don’t judge. Charts simply show us the potentials. In the chart of the day of birth of Chris Kyle there is a potential for a sniper or a hunter and for a sports man, too. There is more in that chart and there will be even more in a chart with an hour of birth, of course. More famous people were born on April 8,1974, like a medal winning orienteering competitor and an author. It makes a difference where you were born, how you were educated and built, what you do with the potential in your chart. Kyle worked as a bronco rodeo rider, but he hurt his arm and that was also the reason why the Special Forces were his only chance to work in the army. He became a SEAL.

A Sun Aries, Moon Scorpio character (will to win) with Jupiter rising before the sun (for the international), a Mars OOB (for the importance of being a man, of arms, of competing) is now has the starring role as the main character in a film (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Sniper_(film) . His ‘calling’ Sun (without major aspects in sign) already told us that he’d draw attention, somehow, anyhow, some day.

PS
His autobiography was published with Progressed Sun sextile Mercury – communications highlighted - in that year. Mercury inconjunct Uranus in the natal chart mirrors how his story shocked people.

Pisces Ascendant: catching


My Ascendant degree is 4 Pisces. With Saturn in early Sagittarius I keep falling! It is almost amazing how my knees don’t break! And how I manage to stand up…Anyway, it is almost Pisces time and with that Ascendant I feel obliged to pay some attention on Ascendant Pisces. The Ascendant is the symbol of how you present yourself and how you see the world. Well, in modern times Neptune rules Pisces and Neptune makes all things vague, diffuse, unreal and idealistic. I am an awake sleep walker, sort of, with colored glasses on. Fortunately, in ancient times Jupiter ruled Pisces and Jupiter is more positive, happy and protecting. The combination of Jupiter and Neptune is the combination of fans and followers, the believing audience and great imagination or illusions. As Jupiter is conjunct my Ascendant but in the 12th house (Pisces house) I surely combine both on my chart’s horizon.

Pisces is one of the signs that pop up in the charts of artists (see my blog Art&Astrology for the pattern of artistic talents). That is because it is a visionary’s sign. Art needs imagination and dreams, to see things that aren’t yet there. You can use the Pisces influence for anything that hasn’t yet materialized. Mediums, media (like the internet and television) and movies belong to Pisces. So does romance, because you see the loved one like no one else sees him or her. Your angel is another person’s devil, perhapsJ.
Pisces Ascendants are a bit fake, perhaps. Let me think aloud a bit...

Is the Pisces Ascendant like a doormat? I think it is sometimes, but not for long. It is just the Ascendant, your door. When you have a Pisces Ascendant your entry is covered in mist, looking soft and slippery. You may have no idea what’s next. You may even be able to bend that door and shape it like you want it and then wipe your feet. The other side of it (the way the Ascendant sees the world) is that it is tricky outside so that you’d better hide or be invisible, be anonymous or on your guard for the emergency exit while seemingly tolerating and understanding it all.  The octopus is one of the creatures that changes color in defense.

The world outside is not what it looks like and there may be more than what you see. That is the message, when you have a Pisces Ascendant. So perhaps there is an overdose of paranoia among those with this Ascendant, as well as an overdose of idealist following on idea or belief and a lot of Pisces Ascendants believing in ghosts.  I don’t know if anyone ever tested this. So it’s just a guess. Isn't that a good end for a not so sure Pisces Ascendant sign story? But, I have another way to look at Pisces. I think of the fisherman, who silently waits for the prey or the beautiful Syren to be caught. Isn't he/she also part of the Pisces story?

LINKS
I like the description of Pisces Ascendant on CafĂ© Astrology, where they mention the changeable (chameleon behavior – especially with Neptune in Libra - or should I say: being able to adjust anywhere?). http://www.cafeastrology.com/pisces_ascendantrisingsign.html

Valentine's Day 2015

Happy Valentine!

The chart of Valentine’s day 2015 looks good for lover’s fun. Why? Because Venus is biquintile Jupiter and that's good for creative parties and marriages. Those who celebrate their birthday or will be born on February 14, 2015 may have more than one reason to congratulate themselves. It is the weekend before Carnaval and that is a weekend of music and funny events in the southern part of my country.

It is a good day, but of course: not for all of us. Life and love happens to depend more on genes, situation and circumstances beyond our choices than on our character, feelings and astrology chart. And not to mention: age! I had Progressed Sun conjunct Venus when I was 6 and could have met the love of my life!:)


This year’s Valentine’s day starts in Western Europe with Juno elevated conjunct MC. Juno, you know, is the symbol of the wedded wife and marriage. Meanwhile, Venus and Mars in Pisces are in the 5th house of ‘the other gender’ or playmates, so it is a nice chart to start with.

This Valentine’s Day it is not true that blonds have more fun. Any hair color will have a nice Valentine’s day if their birthday is on March 12 or 13, and Venus is on your natal Sun. Peter Doherty , who completed rehab in January this year, is such a lucky person. But, dear readers, there is a DISCLAIMER!
Transits of Venus are fast, go bye in a second and are light hearted. So if you happened to look the other way, you won’t even notice the beauty when she goes. Important things like meeting a partner happen in important astrological times. That is when there are more than 2 indications.

So, Venus should best be accompanied by progressions in case of serious plans in love. If you just want to have some fun or send a kind little present, Venus’ transits will do.

These days, Valentine's Day is the day that you celebrate with your loved one. Once it was a friends' day. And there was a time when Valentine was a secret lover.  Valentine is flexible. So am I. I use not to use sun signs, but let me have some fun and tell you about your sun sign Valentine day:

ARIES
Lots of Valentine's Days, Aries have a Venus in the 12th house position and that is great for sending flowers, chocolate and cards to secret loves.

TAURUS
Celebrating Valentine's Day with friends? Have a party!

GEMINI
You may use Valentine's Day to ask or be asked to get married this year. If you already found your love, why not tell the world about it?

CANCER
Your home is your castle, but maybe this year you should ask your partner for a ride or a flight. If you are single, find your love in a library, a plane, abroad or in a travel agency. No gain, no pain.

LEO
Don't buy diamond rings if you can't afford them!

VIRGO
Looking for passion? Or is the romantic dwell of Venus and Mars in Pisces too much? In that case, go to the cinema and see a movie like Fifty Shades. Afterwards, have an ice cream.

LIBRA
Though you like to take it easy, the best way to demonstrate your love is to serve others this year. My advice is to find an easy and clean way to do so.

SCORPIO
Bet you are the most desirable and passioned lover this Valentine's weekend! Or maybe you always are?

SAGITTARIUS
Love is in the air of the bar, dancing place or cinema for you this Valentine.

CAPRICORN
Talking about love and sex this Valentine weekend? Talk to someone special...

AQUARIUS
Find your love and passion in a bank or in the country this Valentine! And if you have one, show your appreciation!

PISCES
Perfume, roses and a good movie complete Valentine's Day. You are in the mood!

Your personal horoscope can be matched with the advices above, easily, wherever you are.
Keep it cool, be nice and have a great weekend!

Use the links for when you are in the mood for romance…

Sad birthday for Bobby Brown

His daughter is in coma, with little chance to recover. No birthday celebration yesterday for father Bobby Brown. I wrote about his chart and life before ( http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/04/bobby-brown-lives.html ) so I will limit this post to the transit and progressions relatd to his sad situation. Look at transit Saturn ruler 1, opposite Progressed Moon in V (house of children), for example. This is a sign for sadness, in most cases.

Of course, Bobby Brown's chart has more indications at the same time, or else it wouldn't be that bad. Transit Pholus on pr MC, for example, refers to a turning point and transit Pluto near AC mirrors stress. There are benefics as well, coming from Saturn. Saturn ends, Saturn earns respect and Saturn is the symbol of parenthood, too. In short, the chart tells us about worries for others or because of others (Moon opposite Saturn) with stress and intensity around (Pluto-AC) at a turning point in family or social status (Pholus-MC). It is not so that the chart is predicting anything. The chart is just in line with the feelings right now. 

Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has Neptune in 8, just like her late mother Whitney Houston, who drowned in a bath. It seems that Bobbi couldn't live with the death of her mother. On February 2 I tweeted about her chart:

Transits and progressions after death

This morning I tweeted about the article on Astro.com (The Immortal Horoscope by Wendy Stacey, with examples) about 'life after death' in the horoscope, as I name it. The transits and progressions of the chart are reflecting events, mostly regarding the reputation of the death person, after death. I fully agree with that article, so I mentioned it on Twitter. This was followed by examples of Astropost that I gave in 2008-2010. 

1. Chart, progressions, transits of Anne Frank re her diary after death

2. Jim Morrison's transits and progressions after death at the time of a trial
3. Charles Dickens and the women after death when the secret relationship with a woman was revealed

4. Astrology of Nicolaus Copernicus reburial after death

5. Where Father Pio's stigmata fake or real. The after death show the question marks:

6. MORE OF KARL MARX's 'DAS KAPITAL' SOLD with transit Jupiter trine his Sun after death 7. Saturn, Pluto and the disappearance of Papadopoulos death body after death

We may not live eternal lives, but our charts apparently do:)

Blaming Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde never scares me. It is a great period to blame something else for your own stupid miscommunication. Really, I don't like the kind of mistakes that I made yesterday. It was rather confusing and a matter of 3x misunderstanding each other. It wasn't just me making mistakes. All 3 persons involved did. What else could it be then a Mercury Retrograde experience?
What happened?

First, my husband said he noticed that I payed for something  on January 19, that he already had payed for in December.
I didn't actually listen and think back much as I was on Twitter. I didn't exactly remember paying the amount, but the payment was already more than 2 weeks ago, I thought it MIGHT be so. So, I said: Oh, well, OK.  I told him that I would call the company next day.

So, the next day I did call the company to ask to pay me back. It was Mercury Retrograde already... The financial department of the company didn't quite understand my point and it took a while for them to check things. Then they said that the amount was due to arrive on my account any moment, because they already noticed the double payment.

Nothing happened. They didn't pay me back. So a week later, I wrote an email to explain the case and again asked for the money to be given back.

Soon as I had done that,  I noticed that the amount of January 19 was ADDED to my account. So, they had credited me. My husband had misunderstood the + and thought it was a -.
Still, strange enough, because WHY did they pay us back. It might be a matter of the insurance company paying them (though they first would not and that is why they credited us). And they also used a different bank account number than the one used for paying them. That explains. Or so...perhaps...

They mailed me back asap, and said that the payment was done 2 weeks ago. OK. But apparently they forgot to tell us about it and about the reason why they withdrew the bill.

Maybe this post is difficult to understand, either? In that case I point at Mercury Retrograde again. It is like doing the moonwalk for 3 persons! I don't intend to call them before Mercury is direct, of course. That is not because I think that Mercury Retrograde did this, but just to be sure!:)

Saturn: dead ends and facing hardness

This week I noticed two examples of transit Saturn inconjunct progressed Sun and how different were they!

The first one was of a farmer who is in 'Farmer seeks wife' in my country. The people of his home town declared that they were ashamed because of his behavior towards the 3 women who are competing to become his one and only. He even got a nick name: Horny Geert (Geile Geert) and there is a little scary movie starring this man (see: http://www.luckymedia.nl/luckytv/2015/01/geile-geert/ ). In fact, he isn't that bad at all. He just faces hardness.
I wrote about his chart on Astromarkt (see: http://www.astromarkt.net/boer-zoekt-vrouw.html ) But, fortunately, the farmer lives in my country. He won't be punished, beaten or killed for kissing the ladies. It is so unlike what may happen when you live in the Middle East.

The second one was yesterday. Yesterday the world was confronted with another horrific criminal murder committed by ISIS. The cruelty and sadism of this crime made me cry. I know that we are in changing times of Uranus-Pluto and I know that Neptune in Pisces started ideological revolutions. But that doesn't change the sentiment: it felt as if they burned a neighbor's son. Muath al-Kasasbeh, a Jordan pilot in ISIS captivity,  was executed in the most cruel and painful way possible. CNN tries to explain why this might be a strategy. It seems that ISIS' supporters were asked how to kill the pilot and this might be the result of it. It is incomprehensible and goes against rule number 1 in the world: don't do to another what you wouldn't want for yourself. My transit Saturn opposition progressed Moon makes me feel very sad about what happens in the world today.

Does the chart explain why this happened to Muath now? Can a chart give us information on not natural deaths in times of war?

No. More persons were born that day. There is no hour of birth available, so that there is no information about Midheaven, Ascendant and Moon's degree. But, we know the transits and we know the progressions. but there is always a combination of indications for good or bad times. Even if we knew the hour of birth, we'd have to consider circumstances. Charts are not fate. They show us the nature of things and perspectives.

Unfortunately, the perspective of the Jordan pilot was colored by transit Saturn.

1. Transit Saturn inconjunct progressed Sun,
2.  Transit Saturn moving to a square with Mars and
3. Also progressed Sun inconjunct progressed Neptune (like in the natal chart's quincunx between Sun and Neptune).

Both Saturn and Neptune bring bad luck and sadness. Together they are the combination of involuntary detachment. Mars-Saturn is the aspect of discipline, heroes, death and all acts related to duty and discipline.  Saturn-Sun aspects often confront you with criticism (correct or not), mistakes and with endings.

It depends very much on where you are (and how old), in what condition, and in what episode of history how transits of Saturn will manifest. Your personal situation and position depends on the nations' situation. When the nation is at war, your hard transits and progressions feel and come harder (see the links below).

It is always better to avoid being in an act of war or in a situation that might harm you. It is even more urgent when you have hard transits and progressions.

Here is the chart of the day of birth with transits and progressions.
Click and open in new window for larger picture

They say that the murder was on January 3. ISIS published their horror movie on February 3, when the progressed Sun of the victim was exactly inconjunct transit Saturn. Transit Saturn will be exactly square Mars later. In the progressed chart, the natal Sun inconjunct Neptune got closer. It is an aspect that sometimes refers to heroes (see http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2009/05/heroes-angles-and-sun-inconjunct.html ) or should I say: martyrs?

I am grateful to live in a place where farmer's kisses lead to 'funny' movies. It is such a different movie than the one that was shown to the world yesterday...

Aquarius astrologer Carroll Righter


On Astropost you find charts of astrologers for almost every sun sign. They tell us about the indications for interest in astrology (or better: for a helicopter view) and they tell us in what way the sun sign of the astrologer is in line with the way that he or she practiced it. Carroll Righter's sun sign was Aquarius. He was an astrologer in the days that astrology was booming and 'The age of Aquarius' was a hit.

What he did was not new. Astrologers have been advising politicians and kings for ages and in some nations, they still do. It is an enormous responsibility and it requires some notion of politics and strategy. I remember a sad case of some years ago of an astrologer /clairvoyabt whose advices left him so poor that one of his famous clients bought him a carpet because he couldn't afford one. Some astrologers give million dollar advices for 100 box! So,  amazing how wealthy Carroll Righter was! (Maybe his Venus ruler 2 in 12 square Pluto ruler 8 helped him? Or maybe American celebs are more generous:).

THE ASTROLOGER'S PATTERN
Astrologers usually have a Jupiter-Uranus 'connection', consisting of a narrow aspect between Jupiter and Uranus, the Sun or Mercury in aspect with both Jupiter or Uranus. a Jupiter/Uranus midpoint combination with Sun, Mercury or Midheaven and/or an Aquarius Sun in aspect with Jupiter (or a Sagittarius Sun in aspect with Uranus). Mostly they have more of these connections, completed with a prominent Pallas (for patterns) and either Jupiter or Uranus in a prominent position. Let's see if Carroll Righter, who was a famous and successful astrologer, had this, too. Here is the chart:
Click and open in new window for a larger picture
There are 4 Jupiter-Uranus combinations.
1. Jupiter is conjunct Uranus
2. Jupiter and Uranus are sextile Mercury
3. Sun in Aquarius -ruled by Uranus- is sextile Uranus in Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter) AND
4. Sun in Aquarius is in a 67.5 degree minor aspect*) with the ruler of the 10th house, Jupiter.
That is more that the rule of 3!

Neptune on IC and the 12th house Pisces Moon square Neptune/Pluto for a famous astrologer? Famous astrological advisors work behind the scenes..,So the combination is a perfect symbol for someone who discretely communicates with celebrities in the paranormal field. See how that Moon in Pisces 12 square Neptune/Pluto is reflecting the 'secret force' and paranormal sensitivity that a lot of people are afraid of? Did he really advice the Reagans?*) Or was it Joan Quigley? Or did they both?

Neptune on IC is a Neptune opposite Midheaven. This position symbolizes a career related to beliefs, ideals/ideology, media and/or mediums or... the movies! Neptune is the symbol of television and all that can't be smelled, seen or touched. It is the symbol of fantasies and what is fake.
His career started when he moved to Hollywood, a very Neptunic place...

Neptune rules his first house (Ascendant Pisces) and is calling (no aspects in orb 5 degrees), just like Saturn is. Midpoint Saturn/Neptune is connected to Midheaven and Sun by means of hard minor aspects. Saturn/Neptune is the midpoint of involuntary detachment  So I found it interesting to read that he hardly ever left his spacious house in the late sixties**). That is also in line with the 12th House Moon and Pisces Ascendant. It takes some study and being alone to study charts:).

Anyway, Carroll Righter had the Jupiter-Uranus 'helicopter view' connection and Pallas in 10 for using patterns as tools to be an astrologer. He had a lot of influence and probably loved the idea (Sun trine Pluto). He made astrology popular, too. With Mars in Aquarius in the 11th house, rising before the Sun and sextile Jupiter, he also had the energy to promote astrology.  This combination mirrors a drive to convince others (just like we see in the charts of the preachers in this post: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/12/preachers-charts.html).
There is also an important Saturn (no aspects in sign within orb 5 degrees) for an important amount of ambition.

THE GOOD MOMENTS
But it also takes good opportunities and starry moments. Righter had his one with Transit Jupiter trine his natal Sun, when Marlene Dietrich became his devoted client after having ignored his warning for an accident (and breaking her ankle).

A long long time ago, in the year that I was born, Carroll Righter became a columnist. That was with progressed Midheaven and transit Jupiter conjunct his natal Sun AND Progressed Ascendant opposite Jupiter, all that, for a golden opportunity.


NOTES
***67.5 is a minor aspect, a semi sesquisquare
