While I prefer to follow the idea of “innocent until proven guilty,” short of there being some massive conspiracy theory it seems certain that Anders Behring Breivik is the gunman that murdered, massacred really, 85 young people at a youth camp in Norway yesterday. I often hesitate to write about the charts of murderers because I fear someone will mistakenly judge certain aspects as murderous, as in “oh my GOD, my boyfriend might be a mass murderer!” You don’t blame the chart; you blame the individual based on their acts, acts committed through free will.
If you want more proof of that statement witness the fact that american actress, fashion designer and model Mena Suvari was born the same day with nearly the same chart. Ms. Suvari is not only a popular and successful public figure but a long-time activist for medical and women’s causes. What one chooses to do with their energy is highly individual, for good or ill.
Currently no birth time is known for Breivik so I’ve set the chart to midnight on the morning of his birth. This shows us that he definitely has a Virgo Moon in early to mid-degrees. The Sun, Mars, Ceres and Vesta are conjunct in Aquarius squaring their ruler, Uranus. This is indicative of someone who is fired up in pursuit of their cause, someone with a fire in their belly and a penchant for quick action. They nurture and are nurtured by action advancing their intellectual agenda.
Mars is closely trine Pluto; Mars in aspect to Pluto is the quintessential violence signature. With Uranus involved you have sudden violence of a shocking nature. With Mars and Pluto in air signs, and Uranus in Scorpio you have a blending that results in an energy that supports violence in pursuit of an intellectual ideal, with savage indifference. Here we can add in the negative use of a Virgo Moon, dissatisfaction with perceived imperfection in others. The Moon conjuncts Saturn in trine to Venus in Capricorn, feeling justified in judging others.
Another point of note here is a Neptunian energy. Juno in Pisces is a commitment to a spiritual ideal or being deluded; opposing Saturn it draws in judgement, possibly judgement based on delusion. Juno’s sign ruler, Neptune, sits on the midpoint between Mars and Pluto, creating delusion that leads to violence. It also widely squares the Juno Saturn opposition, more delusion, more foggy judgement.
Pallas Athena in Aquarius sees broad patterns, how things work in society. With Pallas Athena opposing Jupiter and square Chiron it is likely that there is an overblown infusion of emotional scarring that colors the mix when this person assesses societal patterns. Personal pain colors their worldview.
I do think it’s important to understand how neutral energy can be used to horrific ends, however it is important to remember that each individual is in control of their actions.
