Astrology of the Kent State Massacre May 4, 1970

If you’re familiar with the language of Astrology, and perhaps even if you’re not, you may wish to view the Horoscope of the Kent State Massacre of May 4, 1970 with today being its 40th anniversary.

As you know, in mundane charts an angular planet is a prime suspect in cases of death but at 12:34 pm on May 4, 1970, Kent Ohio, there isn’t one angular planet (Moon/Mc), there are two…Jupiter Rx in Libra at Ic, opposing Moon in early Taurus.

All discussion on governmental abuse of power, Richard Nixon (its poster child), Kent State, the chart itself, and other related topics will be warmly welcomed if you can manage to navigate Blogger’s commenting requirements and proffer your insights concerning the above-linked post.

We may as well face it for it’s just as true in 2010 as it was in 1970: Speakin’ Power to the Man can be dangerous for your health. And the crazy-makin’ part is that dissenting is one of the most “American” actions anyone can ever take, thanks to our country’s founding when freedom-loving Uranus was traversing thoughtful, communicative Gemini.

To me it seems the anti-war protests of the 1960s and 70s in the US held a Venusian values competition to prove who deserved to be ‘right’ – student protesters taking the higher ground of moral values now lost, or the establishment fighting to maintain its power structures and the status quo where it led and the masses meekly followed.

Add to that a backdrop of the titanic Pluto-to-natal-Neptune power struggle underway then for America and you have a combustible brew of dynamic energies too hot to readily handle.

The Kent State Massacre is the kind of old and still-open wound that youth-worshiping America prefers to look away from in horror as we rush to retreat into our national Sagittarian nature (ASC in the Sibly chart) which chants the Jupiter Mantra each day and imagines there’s always a new quest to seek and fulfill…just over the next horizon.

Only in this case, the ‘next horizon’ was merely a campus hilltop in Ohio where a cadre of National Guardsmen took aim and fired their weapons at unarmed students by authority passed through a chain of command that extended like a monster’s tentacle into the highest office of the nation.

And they called him Tricky Dick for good reason.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
