Neither Déjà Vu Nor a Love Story, Part 3 of 3

One more chart now with very minimal analysis:
Jisha inside, Nirbhaya middle, Nirbhaya death outer middle, India outside
While I don’t ordinarily work with Transpluto, at times it bears watching. That’s especially true with these charts. We began at Venus, but the attacks clearly weren’t about love and the ideal woman, and that’s where I found Robert Wilkinson‘s comments about Transpluto highly significant in his 2014 article, “Astrology in the Age of Aquarius – Transpluto, a.k.a Divine Mother, Parvati, and Percephone, Just Left Leo and Entered Virgo, on his Aquarius Papers site.

“This is the vast redemptive Mother Force of God. It is beyond the Individualized Spirituality of Uranus, the Collective Spirituality of Neptune, and the Absolute Transformational Death/Resurrection Spirituality of Pluto. This energy is beyond all of these.

“It is in play whether we know it or not, cooperate with it or not, or even whether we believe in it or not. While we may become the conscious agents of Divine Mother on Earth, it’s still nothing personal. We can become agents of her Grace, but only from a place of receptivity, renouncing any and all tendencies that run counter to Divine Grace,” Robert wrote.

Take note of how Transpluto established not only a conjunction to the Midheaven in the Jisha attack chart, but also to the Midheaven at the time of Nirbhaya’s death. At the time of the attack on Nirbhaya, Transpluto had been in the 1st house. When Nirbhaya died in Singapore on December 29, 2012, Venus formed a 21-minute partile conjunction to Saturn in the Jisha attack chart while in a mere 4-minute partile trine to the Ascendant.

We may never know the exact time of Jisha’s death but we can have a fairly good idea when we look at the Nirbhaya death chart. Perhaps no further analysis is needed here as we see Venus, Neptune and Transpluto touching all of the angles, but I’ll offer more charts with the antiscia included for extra views and understandings. As an additional note, you’ll see even with Transpluto in the India chart not conjunct the MC as the other charts are, it still makes a significant point of contact in an UQSXT to the Moon in the Jisha chart–and another UQSXT to Mars in the Nirbhaya attack chart. Coincidence? It doesn’t seem so, does it?

Looking back at some words from my analysis of the Nirbhaya death chart I developed in 2012, I had written, “I looked at the death chart…yesterday as soon as I heard the news and, lo and behold, there it was. Not that it’s always this evident. In this case, I’m looking at an event chart and not that of this young woman who has become a symbol of love and bravery to all of us. But if symbols have relevance as they most surely do in astrology, the symbolism in this chart is so painfully clear:
Woman is light of God, not just the beloved, It is as if she is creative, not be created - Rumi
“In the midst of my writing this today, we’ve had more snow, several more inches, in fact. It’s a winter wonderland out there. I lifted the blinds to see the beauty and reflect on this whole thing, and the most amazing thing I’ve never before seen in my life: a cardinal sat proudly on a branch. I don’t even know yet if I caught the photo with my camera when I grabbed it before he (the male is the more beautiful) flew away, but before I could blink, there was female cardinal (no crown) and then a male bluejay! And they both flew away, and then my jaw simply dropped in amazement. Ever since my childhood, I have loved photos of chickadees although I’ve never seen one in real life. There were five playing in the tree in the snow!

“I’d like to believe that this was a sign of what comes next in this case. I know the perpetrators will be charged with murder  this week, and I’m grateful for that. But as I think to the playfulness of the birds outside my window as they frolicked in the snow, I can’t help but remember her and my determination never to forget [Nirbhaya], nor should any of us. She doesn’t only stand as a symbol of Indian women, but of women around the world. She is in my heart.”

I also remember how I saw birds committing suicide a few times before deaths in my family and wonder whether they symbolize these too. I think now of how Nirbhaya fought back against her attackers whose violence against her became even more brutal, and I remember an anecdote from a recent email that bears being said here–not only for the world’s Nirbhayas but for the angry voices of the protesters:

Remembering the famous story about ahimsa (non-violence) told in the Vedas, a certain sadhu, or wandering monk, would make a yearly circuit of villages in order to teach. One day as he entered a village he saw a large and menacing snake who was terrorizing the people. The sadhu spoke to the snake and taught him about ahimsa.

The following year when the sadhu made his visit to the village, he again saw the snake. How changed he was! This once magnificent creature was skinny and bruised.

“What happened?” the sadhu asked the snake.

“I took the teaching of ahimsa to heart and stopped terrorizing the village,” said the snake. “But because I have no no longer menaced the villagers, children now throw rocks and taunted me. I’m afraid to leave my hiding place to hunt.”

The sadhu shook his head.

“I did advise against violence,” the sadhu told the snake. “But I never told you not to hiss.”

Translation of “Ek Lau Is Tarah,” which was used in a film about the November 26, 2008 attack on Mumbai. Nevertheless, it fit so well, I felt it appropriate to use here:

How many lives are there which are in clouds (turning round), flowing and passing

Amongst them is one of us

Do the welfare o God, don’t give such result/end to any soul here

The flower who was smiling, why it is leaving this world before its time?

Like this, why one flame quenched? O God, one flame of life o God?

From the light of sun, from the vessel of dew, let us get the happiness.

Where did we, have asked for more? Just give us a world without borders.

Do the welfare o God, in this wish. Why should one die without reason/guilt?

The flower who was smiling, why it is leaving this world before its time?

Like this, why one flame quenched? O God, one flame of life o God?

Like this, why one flame quenched? O God, one flame of life o God?

Let your angry voices be heard. Beseech your Higher Power for answers. Then and only then we might have a real shot at becoming, as Robert Wilkinson says, “agents of her Grace, but only from a place of receptivity, renouncing any and all tendencies that run counter to Divine Grace.”
