Vedic Astrology – Pistorius – Crimean Crisis
Release Date: 03/11/2014
The Oscar Pistorius killing and trial has been riveting the world. The so-called “blade runner” claims that he thought his girlfriend was an intruder and he shot her in a panic. The authorities are certain they have evidence of murder.
Pistorius was born on 11/22/1986 between 1030 and 1130AM in South Africa.
At that time Jupiter and Mars were in Aquarius, Retro Venus and Mercury in Libra, Saturn and the Sun in Scorpio, the Moon in Cancer, Rahu in Pisces and Ketu in Virgo.
The shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, occurred on 2/14/2013 at approximately 3:30AM. On this date, Pistorius would have been at the very beginning of Ketu dasa. If he had a Capricorn ascendant, this would put Ketu in the 9th house. If he was born later, near 1130, Ketu would be in the 8th house.
This 8th house Ketu makes much more sense, as the 8th house is related to sudden, shocking events – and things such as murder and death. In addition, an Aquarius ascendant put Mars in the first house and the Moon in the 6th house. The Moon in the 6th house is a well known placement for an unhealthy child / person and Aquarius is the Sign related to the calves, the body part that was handicapped at Pistorius’s birth.
2/14/2013 – Transits for Murder
On the day of the shooting, Mars, Sun and Mercury were in his 1st house, with Mars in Kopa Avastha (Combust / angry), Mercury is also the 8th lord from aAquarius.
In addition, on 2/14/2013 transiting Mars was in a very tight aspect to his natal Ketu (in the 8th house), and transiting Saturn was aspecting his natal Moon, showing a lot of emotional stress and pressure.
