Rush Hour Terror in London This Morning

According to the Washington Post, London police this morning have declared another incident a terrorist attack following an explosion on the tube at Parsons Green near Wimbledon (BBC story link).

The explosion sent a fireball through a carriage, leaving several people on their way to work bloodied, injured and burned. I wanted to have a quick look at the chart to open this for further discussions that are sure to follow.

Whatever It Takes
Falling too fast to prepare for this
Tripping in the world could be dangerous
Everybody circling is vulturous
Negative, nepotist
Everybody waiting for the fall of man
Everybody praying for the end of times
Everybody hoping they could be the one
I was born to run, I was born for this
Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up
Whatever it takes
Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
Yeah take me to the top I’m ready for
Whatever it takes
Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes
Always had a fear of being typical
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Always hanging on to the visual
I wanna be invisible
Looking at my years like a martyrdom
Everybody needs to be a part of them
Never be enough, I’m the prodigal son
I was born to run, I was born for this
Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up
Whatever it takes
Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
Yeah take me to the top, I’m ready for
Whatever it takes
Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes
Hypocritical, egotistical
Don’t wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working hard on something that I’m proud of, out of the box
An epoxy to the world and the vision we’ve lost
I’m an apostrophe
I’m just a symbol to remind you that there’s more to see
I’m just a product of the system of catastrophe
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I’m half-diseased
And when I am deceased
At least I’ll go down to the grave and die happily
And leave the body and my soul to be a part of thee
I do what it takes
Whatever it takes
Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
Yeah take me to the top, I’m ready for
Whatever it takes
Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

I was unable to confirm the time the explosion actually took place; however, the following tweet gives a clear notation that ambulances were called at 8:20 AM in London. Since this is the most accurate time I have been able to confirm, I’m very comfortable in working with this.

From the moment I opened the chart, the single undecaquartisextile (165°) between the Ascendant and 6th house Chiron caught my eye. But before I lingered too long on that, the 1°59′ orb between 1st house Jupiter and Chiron as the quincunx (150°) struck me as well and gave me a strong hint that this was about to be a chart one might simply call rich with details and treasures waiting to be discovered. For those who don’t yet know my preferences on the subject of quincunxes, if it’s a single quincunx, I have no problem in seeing those with orbs up to 2° or even a few minutes past. I’ve never considered this aspect however to go as far as 3°. Some might, but I’m not among them.

Jupiter at 24 LI 45 sits in a 3-minute partile opposition to the contra-antiscion of Mercury in the 11th house. But pay attention to the conjunction of Mercury and Mars here since Jupiter was also forming a tight partile opposition to the contra-antiscion of Mars just yesterday, bringing to mind the words of Robert Wilkinson of Aquarius Papers as he reminded readers of the entire month being a likely matter of “Life Under Pressure.” He said a mouthful, and it comes to life already in this chart.

Robert opened the brief commentary with a delicious word, “concatenation,” and I’ll urge you to look it up just as he had me do. It was fitting when I read it as something along the lines of that construction paper chain children often make to decorate Christmas trees in some schools and some homes, and it’s even more fitting today as I look at the chart with its aspects. Talk about putting new vocabulary words into action! This one does it for me. Now I’ll share the chart with you.

You’ll notice, I’m sure, I didn’t linger on the single undecaquartisextile (UQSXT) when I first mentioned it above. I prefer to wait until those gems come fully to life before I bother to get excited about a single UQSXT. While the single aspect often might alert us to glimpses of what’s possible in a chart like this (certainly the ascendant and Chiron would be significant in themselves, but that significance was more or less obvious since the Ascendant points to the body, the apparent first impressions if we’re looking at a single individual, and the 6th house would be about health, habits and even co-workers, many of whom were traveling together on the way to their jobs this morning. In that sense, my immediate instincts said there wasn’t enough to write home about just yet.

Those who have been reading my articles for a while will be likely to remember my having mentioned a transiting semisextile (30°) between Uranus and Chiron, a factor that will come in and out of the shadows according to the charts and the incidents. And sure enough, Uranus forms a 1°05′ orb in its semisextile to Chiron, resolving at 12 Libra 16.5, close enough to be considered conjunct the Ascendant and therefore presenting us with an in-the-face Blooming Undecaquartisextile!

It doesn’t seem to me that the perpetrator(s) necessarily intended to kill, but I could be wrong. The most seemingly innocuous events may appear to be nothing more than some wounds but focused on creating fear and panic can indeed be deadly. Hopefully this will not be the case this time. The panic, I have no doubt, was bad enough.

The more I look at the chart, the more little things keep nudging at me. The Sun in the 12th opposes Chiron, but this duo–if you choose to use Chiron as a point to be considered in T-squares (I haven’t cast my ballot one way or another just yet)–establishes a mutable T-square with Saturn in Sagittarius in the 3rd house. But the Sun also forms a semisextile to Venus in Leo with a mere 1°34′ orb. Some might want this orb to be tighter–at no larger than 1°00–but I’d urge them to consider this as well since this duo resolves in a Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile at 8 PI 26. Yes, I see Neptune Retrograde (Rx) but that feels a bit wide of an orb for me. I’m not ruling it out however. It bears noting even if I am not putting it directly in the path of the UQSXT pattern itself. We would, after all, expect the guilty party tofocus on not getting caught and therefore perhaps blending in with the fleeing, panicking travelers.

And then there is the matter of the Moon’s conjunction to the MC of the chart in opposition to Pluto in the 4th and forming its conjunction to the IC. Fear causes emotion, nervousness and so on, and certainly the tension would be present with the Moon-Pluto opposition. But did you also notice Saturn’s quincunx to the Moon within a mere 1°57 orb? Seems to me the terrorist(s) didn’t really care what the reaction was, as long as there was a reaction, that their work was noticed, and–even if they were called monsters, the reaction was the key. They wanted this to be memorable and emotional. It brings to mind the reactions of those in the United States and Caribbean who have survived the floods of the last few weeks. Their voices told the whole story even if one didn’t understand the language. In this chart with its Eastern 4th quadrant above-the-horizon dominance, the aim of this attack was, regardless of how many lives were lost or not, the emotion and terror itself. This was their self-composed love letter to themselves.

Now I realize you might question such a conclusion but remember Venus is ruling the chart from Sun-ruled Leo, and the Sun-Venus semisextile is forming that Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile at least close enough to Neptune for us to be aware of its role here. For this individual or group to have committed this act today, it seems to be a matter of the way they fantasized they wanted a love letter written to them–not by the victims, of course, but the end result of whomever they were trying to impress.

As you consider those thoughts and I always do now, until next time…

Namaste, I love you,
Michelle
