I feel like I want to honor Christina Green second, but probably should do Loughner's chart second, since trying to figure this whole thing out centers around him.
Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged shooter, I presume he should be called, was born on September 10, 1988, and I'm using Tucson, Az for the city.
He has a Virgo sun of course, and a Virgo moon. That usually indicates that at his birth, his parents were in love and united at the start of his life.
In 1988, Pluto was at 10 of Scorpio and Neptune at 7 of Cap, creating the Master Yod, that point near Jupiter at 5 of Gemini on the other side as the YOD point. ....Jupiter representing politics...which for most people, probably means a career in politics, certainly an interest in it.
For all those born around that time, Saturn and Uranus are in Sag; in this instance, a bit off the trigger point to direct the energy down to Jupiter, but certainly, 4 major planets all in alignment without any softer energy in between. Saturn and Uranus square his sun and Mars inconjuncts it...Pluto sextiles his sun on one side of the Master Yod.with Saturn/Uranus moving in to inconjunct it on the other side with Neptune. The inconjunct is like Chiron; a wounding, that seeks to express itself at the apex of the Yod...which in this case, is Jupiter/politics.
Saturn is a paternal type energy that would be a downer in the square; sometimes a male person in his life who probably rode him hard and was not unconditional. Uranus can cause stress. Uranus is the anti establishment energy who wants to march to his own drummer. The two of them together in the positive, can take the genius ideas of Uranus and bring them into practical application. But, conditional Saturn can 'sit' on Uranus until it explodes.
It's been written that many times the outer planets stressing one's sun cause them to act out in less than desirable ways. But, hundreds, and maybe thousands, of people were born around that time, and they aren't doing similar things, so it would depend on the proximity and the rising degree etc., to indicate when it's ticked off and when it isn't. I have Saturn and Uranus square my sun and I haven't done anything outside the law in my life. Saturn squaring the sun, tho, does usually indicate stress with father....or father not supporting the person in their life's work when it isn't in business and traditional.
Transiting Saturn in the sky right now, is still in the first solar house, so went over his Virgo sun and moon in the last 3 years. Saturn going through the 1st and 2nd houses is an austere time, when one feels oppressed by authority and things don't go one's way as they might ordinarily...first in one's personal life and then, money. At the time of the eclipse, when it was at the midpoint of Pluto and Mars, the eclipse itself was squared by Saturn.....setting off a pin ball machine effect.
Transiting Pluto is in the midst of the Saturn/Uranus/Neptune energy now, in the solar 4th house; the foundation of his chart, which would say home life hasn't been fun and games.
Loughner was born in the Year of the Dragon and the month of the Snake. The Dragon loves the limelight and loves the attention. We usually look at it as the class clown or the kids who love to act or be on stage in some fashion. I guess, in the negative, it could be someone who seeks out attention any way they can get it. The Snake is a perfectionist who has to be right. They seek approval or eschew it, pretending they don't need it when they really do. The Dragon represents the stomach meridian in the Chinese 5 element system, and the Snake is the Spleen. Both are the earth element, and the color is yellow. These two are all about need and want. The Dragon wants and the Snake needs. Both have positive and negative attributes One can want a Ferrari but need a car, while conversely, one wants a relationship but shouldn't go in to it needing one.
In this solar chart (without birth time) Saturn, Uranus in Sag and Neptune in Cap are in the victim section of the chart, and transitting Pluto has been moving through it for quite some time. Pluto in the victim area can be expressed as the person being the victim or the predator.
After Pluto has been through the victim section of the chart, it moves into the control section. One vows that they are never going to be victimized again and goes into control mode to make sure it never happens again. They create a world they can exist within and will brook no nonsense about any reality that does not emanate from it. It's the Monkey energy in the Chinese system, and there are the 3 Monkeys of "Hear No Evil - Speak No Evil - See No Evil" fame...."Evil" being any philosophy which doesn't agree with their own. ...In this case, the eclipse was in his control section. With 3 of the major outlying planets in the victim section of his chart, it becomes the focal part of his chart, with all the aspects to these planets, coming home to roost in this section. ....unfortunately.
Regardless of the cards we were dealt with our birthchart, we can take these experiences to the positive or the negative. It's been said that Mother Theresa's chart could be one of a prostitute, and the chart of a prison guard could also be one who's incarcerated. We do have free will, and ultimately it isn't what happens, it's our reaction to it....
Christina Green, 9 years old, born on September 11, 2001, one of the most infamous dates in history, was soooo excited to meet her congresswoman, Gabielle Giffords on January 8th. How many people were born on that day whose life didn't come to an end as Christina? It's been reported that a book was written about 50 children born that day, one in each state......so we have to factor in where we are living as well as our chart. If we knew her time of birth, we would have more insights.
I'm sure her parents are wondering "Why Christina?" Why our daughter? Why our child, of all those born on that date? My son died of melanoma 8 years ago, and when I see or hear about people born in 1972, in early August, I sometimes wonder "why Dave?" So I'm sure they will always wonder "Why Christina?" of all the people born on that day with that planetary configuration. It does show though, that we can have stressful planetary configurations and still have the ability to walk around the pitfalls of life.
Christina was a Virgo, with a Gemini moon. Certainly she was a child filled with wonder and curiosity as both signs are ruled by the mental Mercury. Christina was born in the Year of the Snake and the month of the Snake. The Snake is akin to Virgo. I'm sure she was a perfectionist who desired to do everything right. She might have had Aquarius rising as she wanted to be the first woman to play on the major league level in baseball....her grandfather being Dallas Green, who managed the Phillies, I believe, and her father is a scout for the Dodgers.
Christina was born with Chiron and Mars in the victim part of her chart, and Pluto had been moving through it since shortly after birth. Again, Chiron represents a wounding, and while not being a true conjunction (being close together by degree) there is no other heavenly body between them.
Saturn (conditional authority, judgement, criticism) squared her Mars (divine discontent, youthful drive and determination, sports, as well as guns, knives and surgery) last year, and Pluto (power and manipulation) conjuncted it, back and forth. Couldn't have been an easy time for her, or any of the Sept 11th babies....again Mars and Pluto can be symbolized as "youthful thug"...and then on the eclipse, Saturn was near her sun sign, potentially raining on her parade, and squaring the eclipse, which was in the victim section. Loughner, born on Sept 10, and Christina on Sept 11th....one was the "alleged" predator and one was the victim.
