According to Fort Hood officials, around 4 p.m. [Wed. April 2nd, 2014] Lopez allegedly opened fire in an administrative building. He then went to the 1st Medical Brigade area of Fort Hood and fired more shots. He was using a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol.
The recent shooting at a military base in Fort Hood, Texas has opened old wounds from a previous massacre at the same base five years earlier.
On November 5, 2009, a mass murder took place at Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas. Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others. It is the worst shooting ever to take place on an American military base
In this two part article will begin with a short delineation of the 2014 Ft. Hood shooting then take a look back at the previous Ft. Hood shooting.
As astrologers are aware, there are many volatile configurations lining up in the heavens at this time. Most recently an angry New Moon at nine degrees of Aries which hits off the upcoming Grand Square or Grand Cross of Pluto/Mars/Uranus and Jupiter towards the end of April.
Mars and Saturn went retrograde a month ago, March 1st, which can cause more intense anger and misuse of anger which results in this type of violence. The shooter was enraged when he was told that he had to wait a day before receiving paperwork for a leave of absence. According to the Iraq veteran's Facebook messages on March 1st, he had recently been robbed and seemed to be suffering from depression.
This shooting occurred as Pluto slowed to a standstill and about to go retrograde in a week (4/14) at 13:34 Capricorn. This increases it's power to unleash a violent force.
At the time of the shooting, transiting Moon at 22 Taurus was exactly opposing Saturn at 22 Scorpio. Morning Star Venus simultaneously hit the point (by sextile) of the upcoming April 15th Lunar eclipse at 25 Libra as retrograde Mars sits nearby this degree and heats up the hostility.
The shooting began on April 4, 2014, approx 4 PM, the first house ruler, Sun in warlike Aries, is placed in the house of death while conjunct the planet of unexpected and spontaneous actions - Uranus. This helped to cause this soldier to become extremely impatient (Aries), not wanting to wait a day for paperwork, then deciding, in the heat of the moment (Uranus), to lash out and shoot everyone in the office before killing himself. Uranus rules the 6th and 7th houses of workplace, military and people who oppose him. Investigators told the news that this was not a premeditated attack.
Saturn the traditional ruler of death sits in the fourth house of endings and squares the Ascendant/Descendant. Saturn co-rules the 6th house of service and service men and women and the 7th house of open enemies. Sun, r-1,is in the sign of fall of Saturn as is the sign on the Ascendant, Leo (shooter) sign of detriment of Saturn. This shows the extreme animosity of the shooter (r-1) towards the person not giving him his forms and the military in general. Saturn represents delays and bureaucracy which moves slowly. The Moon opposite Saturn also shows the shooter being blocked from his goals by someone else and can signify his depressed state of mind.
The Ascendant separates from an upsetting square to Moon/Saturn and applies to oppose war-like Morning Star Venus in the 7th house in Aquarius as the shooting began between 4 - 4:15PM. Venus ruled by Saturn shows that the person of Lopez's ire was following protocol and this made him/her the object of his rage. An argument was said to have ensued. Someone opposed him aggressively (Morning Star Venus), and this helped set things off.
Lopez is signified by Sun in Aries conjoined Uranus both in the sign of detriment of Venus. This shows the hatred and anger Lopez felt towards this person in charge and the necessity of processing these forms for a leave of absence (Venus r-3,10.)
The Sun (Lopez) at a critical degree of 13 Aries, exactly square stationing Pluto, caused events to break out into a crisis. Horary astrologer Derek Appleby writes," . . . when a significator or the Moon is found upon a Critical degree, a crisis is about to break."
Sign of the occult and death, Scorpio sits on the fourth house cusp of how things end. Lopez earlier described feeling as if he were being possessed. The same day that Mars and Saturn stationed retrograde, March 1, 2014 he purchase a rifle and wrote a sinister Facebook message.
On March 1,  the same day he purchased the .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol he used in the attack, Specialist Lopez wrote an especially angry and vaguely threatening post. “My spiritual peace has all gone away, I am full of hate, I believe now the devil is taking me. I was robbed last night and I’m sure it was two flacos. Green light and thumbs down. It’s just that easy ...”
