Stephen Paddock

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:24 am

I see JSAD found a birth certificate report on Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas record-breaking murderer. I probably won't be able to work this up until I get home in a week, but I wanted to create this as a ready thread.

It appears we have a time for the shooter's birth.

Birth Certificate, AA Roddan Rating.
As she pointed out, he had a Pisces Sun opposite Neptune trine-sextile a Capricorn Moon opposite Pluto. I'm surprised at the first impression of the chart - everything I heard about him sounded Sidereal (not Tropical) Aries. I'll dig deeper when I can.

Very (very) preliminary look...

The natal is not what I expected, but is a tight mass of complex psychodynamics, weighted heavily by the redundant Saturn-Neptune themes (and I think his natal Venus-Saturn opposition is important).

But his transits... OMG, reading them neutrally, they foremost show him having FUN. Transits specifically look to me like someone playing a video game that suddenly decided to settle in and go for a huge win and, in fact, racked up more points than anyone who has ever played the game before! (He did.)

And, knowing he probably had a hereditary predisposition to eventual psychosis, my impression is that he lost the ability to distinguish between "real life" and a video game.

That's my working theory of the moment.

His SLR, a few hours before the event, brings these main factors to the fore, as well as two transits that were no longer in conventional orb - but were quite angular in his SLR. I specifically mean Pluto opposite his Uranus, and Jupiter opposite his Venus - plus the core natal planets of his natal (potentially psychopathic) constructs. It then focuses all of this tightly with Sun exactly square MC and Pluto (opposite natal Uranus) exactly square Asc: Bring it all the an exciting, unprecedented, explosive climax while basking in the tragic hero's limelight. (From within his own psyche, of course - not my view of him.)
