Michael Brown / Trayvon Martin
A (more or less) Caucasian man shoots an unarmed but physically intimidating black teenager to death. The Caucasian has no record of prior violence; the teenager may or may not have one. The Caucasian claims self-defense, and, in the presence of reasonable doubt, is acquitted by the legal system. Furor, protests, and riots ensue. Loudly-voiced opinions abound, but it may never be completely certain what happened to cause the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown Jr..
When someone who isn't a killer by trade kills another (or him/herself), it's basically a given that transiting Pluto is affecting natal or progressed Pallas on that person's chart. This transit corresponds with an ethical crisis in the life of the chart native in which the native faces a fateful ethical choice and/or a period of challenged or impaired judgment. This is the case with both the charts of George Zimmerman (killer of Trayvon Martin) and Darren Wilson (killer of Michael Brown).
This is nothing new for readers of this blog. Here's the part that's still a mystery to me: the transits for the deceased.
Thanks to an anonymous reader for letting me know that some Wilson/Brown birth data were recently made available.

Also, on the day of the shooting, transiting Pluto 10 deg. Capricorn conjunct Reeva Steencamp's Pallas 7 deg. Cap. Nice blog you have here by the way. Paula ReplyDelete astrolibertarianDecember 8, 2014 at 5:59 PM Eric Garner was -also- born under a Pallas-NNode conjunction. And the transiting North Node was trine his progressed/natal Pallas when he was killed by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo. (!!!) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Eric_Garner
