1. There is a tight Mars-Uranus-Pluto aspect combination in both charts
On July 20 2012 Mars in Libra was square Pluto and opposition Uranus, highly.
On December 13 1987 Mars was conjunct Pluto and both were semi square Uranus.
The combination of Mars, Uranus and Pluto is the combination of terror. Anders Breivik (the Norwegian terrorist, see the post) also has a Mars, Uranus, Pluto aspect combination in the natal chart.
There are several examples on this blog (see labels). In 1940 Reinhold Ebertin (click for his chart) wrote about this stellar combination. I quote 'The combination of stellar influences":
"Fanatism, act of violence, mania of destruction".
He was right.
The Mars-Uranus-Pluto combination doesn't mean that such an incident has to happen. Astrology doesn't work vice versa!
2. There is a 'calling' Neptune in both charts.
The incident took place in the cinema (Neptune), where people were being dressed up or were wearing masks (Neptune).
The prominence of Neptune refers to the prominence of all things related to Neptune (fantasy, fiction, wearing masks, being dressed up as if..., the movies, and the influence of violent computer games - just like with Anders Breivik -). Next came: television teams following the parents, interviews with the neighbors...the media is all around.
In this sad story we have television, video games and movies. And possibly also drugs (drugs are part of Neptune's vocabulary, too).
*) When a planet doesn't make Ptolemaic aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees, I name that a 'calling' planet. The influence of that planet will be evident, somehow, anyhow, at any possible level and is often related to the profession.
The charts of some shooting incidents had Mars elevated or related to Midheaven (see the post). If my calculation was correct, that is not so this time.
