Bad Moon Rising

One of the topics that came up at a recent talk for the Fraser Valley Astrology guild was how the north and south nodes of the moon were known to carry a fairly negative impact, and that many of the mass murderers, Dictators, stalkers and other deranged types had their natal moon conjunct with either Rahu (north node) or Ketu (south node) of the moon. Now, not all people that have their moon with the nodes are affected negatively, such as Mahatma Gandhi, but it seems to bring some type of notoriety or fame into the persons life. The list is long and shocking when you look into it, as to those that have made a huge imprint on the society that have this combination. In the April Star Wise column I had said that Mars was drawing close to Pluto in the last half of the month, and that it was an  ominous combination that would bring violence etc. In ancient times the astrologers noted that the moon moved rapidly in comparison to the planets, and that each day the moon visited a different star group. The star groups were called constellations, asterisms, lunar mansions, or Nakshatras. Each Nakshatra was ruled by certain deities, some very positive, and some not so nice, and the souls that were born when the moon moved through these Nakshatras carried the impulses and influences of the gods, goddesses and other deities. One would imagine that when the moon and the nodes connected in the more negative Nakshatras that there would be some type of insanity manifesting. All this material brings me to the horrible event that took place in Toronto on April 23, at 1:05 P.M. The moon was rising with Rahu, moving through the Nakshatra called Ashlesha, all this while Mars and Pluto were in a tight conjunction. At that time Mars had very powerful status enabling his worst traits to manifest. If you google the Nakshatra, Ashlesha you will find that the Astrologers considered that this was probably the worst of the 27 Nakshatras. This astro combination was nearly a perfect storm in which this dynamic and devastating scenario manifested at the hands of a madman, maniac with no regard for human life, and has caused untold sadness and suffering. The one positive outcome of this tragedy is that it has drawn the human spirit together, and has made us pull close in order to help and support those that are suffering. We are strong and the human spirit is strong, and one day love will overcome all this negativity and suffering. The answer is to keep giving, living, loving and forgiving.
