Reports of how many were injured still appear to be coming in since some news is still indicating only three injured while others are now reporting 11 to 14. While authorities don’t yet know the cause, early reports are saying authorities are investigating whether the explosion was caused by a grenade or an improvised explosive device (IED).
I drew up the Western 2nd quadrant below-the-horizon dominance, spotted the conjunction of Pluto to the 7th house cusp and noted the 6th house placement of Saturn forming a square to the MC. Then I discovered 4 planetary bodies including the Virgo Moon at the 29th anaretic degree. At the heart of this cluster, of course, is the ongoing now 15-minute partile opposition between 4th house Venus and 10th house Uranus Rx, still forming a square with the orb hovering just a few minutes over 1°. The Moon’s placement at the time of the explosion fell within a 1°21 orb of opposition to Chiron in the 9th.
Although the ongoing Chiron Rx-Uranus-Rx semisextile (1°13 orb) has been in play for a while now, its presence in the 9th and 10th houses, crossing the MC, is still significant. It resolves in this chart at 13 Libra 33 in a Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile (UQSXT) with a 9-minute partile quincunx (150°) to Neptune! Many astrologers insist on using the term “inconjunct” for the 150° angle known as the quincunx. The reasoning, however, escapes me since the prefix “in” means “not”. Anything “not conjunct,” therefore, is “inconjunct.” It’s a vague term. So rather than confuse others, I consistently use the term “quincunx” which is the mathematical word form for 150°. The same is true of the yod, which uses two quincunxes to reach a common third point 150° away.
The 3rd house Moon forms a 7-minute partile semisextile (30°) to Venus, resolving in a Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile (165°) at 14 Aries 22 in opposition to the UQSXT pattern at 13 Libra 33, formed by the Chiron Rx-Uranus Rx semisextile. Just as I explained above about the quincunxes and their formation into yods, the undecaquartisextile moves from the single undecaquartisextile to the undecaquartisextile patterns with a 30° semisextile between two points which expand out to reach a common third point 165° away.
The 4th house placement of Venus also forms a 30-minute partile semisextile to 5th house Mercury Rx, and this resolves in another Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile at 14 Taurus 39.
Because of the calculations before me, the 3rd point of the Moon-Venus extension to the Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile at 14 Aries 22 establishes another semisextile at the Venus-Mercury Rx extension to its Resonant Blooming Undecaquartisextile at 14 Taurus 39. This duo of resolution points forms a Blooming Undecaquartisextile conjunct Uranus Rx!
Of course by now, many of you are sure to have spotted the partile yod formed by the Moon-Mercury Rx sextile to the eye, or finger of God, conjunct Uranus Rx in the 10th. The presence of Uranus at this spot conjunct not only the eye but the UQSXT resolution point makes me suspect even more than this was no accident; but then I’m not one of the investigators, and we’ll have to wait and see. I’m not especially hopeful on that point however.
For this reason alone, I’ve added the second chart to show India’s natal Moon conjunct the North Node in the explosion chart. That establishes the transiting T-square with the natal Moon at the arm. Additional emphasis on the Nodes comes into play as well with the 5th house Mercury in the explosion chart, conjunct the natal South Node while positioned in a 45-minute partile quincunx to 10th house Uranus. The repeated emphasis on Uranus Rx in the 10th just seems too obvious not to mention.
The explosion chart’s Saturn also then forms a 57-minute partile square to natal Neptune at the IC of the explosion chart, establishing the Peeling of Life’s Onion. At the same time, one more UQSXT pattern is established when the natal chart is placed outside of the explosion chart: Again, while I’m not a major proponent of asteroid studies, as many know, natal Juno establishes a voice in an 8-minute partile semisextile to the Descendant of the explosion chart and resolves in a 57-minute partile Blooming Undecaquartisextile conjunction to the explosion’s 12th house placement of natal Mars. That just convinces me more: This was no accident or coincidence.
Thankfully, no deaths have been reported yet. Let’s hope it stays that way.
