Midpoint combination Mars-Saturn-Pluto

The midpoint combination of Mars, Saturn and Pluto is the combination of death and disciplinary measures (Mars-Saturn), the natural rulers of endings and transformations (Saturn-Pluto) and the use and/or abuse of violence (Mars-Pluto). I have written about this combination before, for example regarding the chart of Osama bin Laden. This time the combination shows up in the story of a man who was executed because of a crime related to September 11.

Mark Stroman, the man who shot 3 innocent persons and killed 2 of them in the idea to revenge the death of his sister in one of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, has been executed. In his chart, the combination of Mars, Saturn and Pluto is reflecting the violent events, in the natal chart as well as in the period of the crime. Gender, genes, social/cultural conditions and situations together with the chart sometimes bring about the most nasty sides of the meaning of planets. Mark Stroman's sister died a violent death, he killed two men and injured a third person and eventually he was sentenced to death.

Mark Stroman was born on October 13, 1969 in Dallas, Texas. Saturn was rising before the Sun and Venus. Saturn was 'calling' (no major aspects in signs or orb 5 degrees) and involved in what I name a 'midpoint yod': Saturn opposition the midpoint of Mars and Pluto. That midpoint combination Mars/Saturn/Pluto introduced the issue of the danger of death and the possibility of involvement in issues of unnatural death causes. The Mars-Saturn-Pluto combination was even more heavy because of the importance of Saturn (the orientational or oriental planet + the calling planet).

On September 11, 2001, the day that his sister lost her life, transit Pholus was opposition natal Saturn and conjunct natal Mars/Pluto. Pholus is the symbol of the turning point. This turning point was related to the theme of unnatural death and danger of death. Here are the natal positions of the day of birth with transits and progressions of September 11, 2001.

Now he died with Progressed Sun quindecile the symbol of revenge after death, Nessus.

Hello M, it is Mars square Saturn, no Mars-Saturn-Pluto combination. Mars-Saturn introduces the issue of discipline, restricted or limited energy and sometimes the importance of death (not necessarily yours). Mars-Saturn in a woman's chart is one of the indications for divorce (bur it takes more of such indications!) Please see the labels for more on Mars-Saturn. Btw important Mars-Saturn aspects might point at the military. Etcetera...Chech the internet for second opinions!:)

I've got Mars semi square my Saturn, and Saturn inconjuncts Pluto. So, Pluto opposes the midpoint of Mars Saturn. Mars 23.55 Pisces in 8, Saturn 10.20 Aqu in 6, and Pluto 7.52 Virgo on 2. I've never felt the violent effects of these thank goodness,so it must play out differently in my chart. It could be with finances, since they have always been such a big struggle.

Dear Anonymous and M and other readers,

Don't worry please. It takes more than just one Mars-Saturn-Pluto combination to get involved in violence. Mars, Saturn or Pluto also have to be important.

For some examples, see the other posts about Mars, Saturn and Pluto combinations on this blog. Search the blog for it, use the label or copy and paste this link:

or see the post about this combination and the chart of Osama bin Laden:

Other suggestions: read about Mars-Saturn, Mars-Pluto and Saturn-Pluto aspects

Thanks for your comments! They remind me of warning the reader that it takes more than one aspect or aspect combination (rule of 3), that circumstances are important and that charts like stats don't work the other way around!
