Astrology for Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman Shooting
What can composite chart astrology add to the astrological toolbox? Read first the analysis below from The Weekly NewsScope. Then consider the composite chart between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman and the transits to that composite chart at the time of the shooting. Finally, if you read the composite chart interpretation from Halloran's new $100 Composite Couples Report, you can see how conflict and confusion dominated the interaction between Trayvon and George.
Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman
Young men with dynamic Mars-Uranus aspects can quickly get involved in dangerous situations. The Mars-Uranus pairing fosters impulsive, sudden action and encourages risk-taking. Those with this combination tend to be hyperactive, spontaneously volatile, and are generally too willful to listen to others' opinions. Get two people together with this aspect, and you can expect fireworks.
Trayvon Martin (February 5, 1995; Miami, FL; time unknown) and George Zimmerman (October 5, 1983; Manassas, VA; time unknown) both have this aspect. While the circumstances surrounding Trayvon Martin's death remain uncertain, and many half-truths and outright lies have emerged under Mercury's retrograde phase, astrologers can arrive at their own opinions. And one thing is clear: neither of these two was perfectly innocent.
Martin's Aquarius Sun has a wide opposition to Mars, but by secondary progression, his Mars is only two degrees from opposing his Sun. The Sun-Mars type often puts himself into situations that require boldness and courage. In this way he can prove to himself that he's not a coward. They tend to see others as being argumentative or aggressive rather than themselves.
Zimmerman's Mars centers a T-square involving a Jupiter-Uranus conjunction opposite Chiron. This T-square (along with Martin's progressed Sun) was activated by the transiting Juno-Chiron square that was described here last week. Both Martin and Zimmerman have their natal Sun sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius, indicating each believed he was in the right. However, Zimmerman's Mercury-Neptune square tells us that he is perfectly capable of falsifying information or misrepresenting the facts to verify his story.
We don't have birth times for Trayvon Martin or George Zimmerman, but it is interesting how it does not seem to matter - there are still close alignments with the solar house cusps for the composite chart - at 30 degrees from the composite Sun, Composite Pluto is on the 12th house cusp and at 150 degrees from the composite Sun, the Composite Moon is on the 8th house cusp. Then if you look at the transiting planets in the outer wheel, transiting Mars is right on the Midheaven, 90 degrees square to the composite Sun.
Since I started to look at transits to composite charts with the Astrology of Scott and Laci Peterson Missing Wife Murder case, I have seen several dramatic examples of events coinciding with transiting aspects to composite charts - the transits to the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman composite chart at the time of the shooting are a good example. In addition to transiting Mars squaring the Composite Sun, look at transiting Saturn and transiting Neptune. Transiting Saturn at 29 Libra 09 is exactly square Composite Chiron at 29 Cancer 10. I have found Chiron to be involved in fighting prejudice, among other limitations. Then transiting Neptune at 0 Pisces 53 opposes Composite Mars at 29 Leo 28. These two transiting planets are the planets that are conjunct in the composite chart, with the interpretation for Saturn conjunct Neptune reading, "You may find that your relationship has an uncertain, spacey quality to it that can be confusing for you both."
You can read the Composite Couples Report for Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman here. AstrolDeluxe ReportWriter comes with templates that let you cut off the report after your desired number of aspects. The program always sorts the aspect interpretations so that the closest and strongest aspects appear first. The Standard template cuts off after 11 aspect interpretations, so that the reader does not have to plow through weaker and less relevant interpretations. But the program comes with templates from CutOffAt6Aspects to CutOffAt10Aspects and NoAspectCutOff. In this case, I chose the template CutOffAt8Aspects to end with Mercury square Mars, which starts out, "It is easy for you to get into a fight." It is interesting that the composite chart can describe the relations between two people who did not have a relationship, since they had never met before. Apparently, it is too theoretical to say that the composite chart describes the third system that two people laboriously create by being in a relationship. In this case, the dynamics of their composite chart immediately kicked in and governed their interaction.
