Pharmacy Shootings

A messed up burglary in New York turned in to a tragic shooting of 4 people in a pharmacy yesterday. I send my condolences to the friends and families of the victims.

Suffolk County Police identified the dead employees as Raymond Ferguson, 45, of Centereach, and Jennifer Mejia, 17, of East Patchogue. Bryon Sheffield, 71, of Medford, and Jamie Taccetta, a 33-year-old woman from Farmingville, were identified as the two customers

The event chart portrays the crime unbelievably well. Neptune, which rules drugs and pharmacies is in 2 degree conjunction with an angle. It is at 1 Pisces in conjunction with the 29 Aquarius Descendant and Chiron 6 Pisces. And it is squaring Mars (violence) 29 Taurus (H10).

Neptune has recently moved in to his own sign this year so we can expect a period of pronounced activity in the areas of the Astrological wheel which he rules. Neptune on average takes about 13 years to pass through a sign and I'm too lazy to find the exact dates for how long this current transit will be.

Neptune rules loss of boundaries and feelings of compassion for others, but also of helplessness and abandon. He rules the concept of surrender and of letting go which is probably the highest form of spirituality when used by highly spiritual people (and, really, folks, how many of those are there on the planet). Things never are what they seem with Neptune.

Since Neptune passed into his own sign there has been another story of a killing within a pharmacy on May 26 when a pharmacist in Oklahoma City was convicted of 1st degree murder for killing a burgler in his store. During that event two men walked into a pharmacy pointing a gun in the Pharmacist's face. The pharmacist responded by pulling out a gun and shooting one man. The other burglar escaped and the pharmacist chased after him. When the pharmacist returned he got another gun and shot the downed man a few more times. This pharmacist has been praised for having saved the lives of the 2 customers in the store so the conviction is considered controversial.

Kind of interesting the difference in attitudes between the two shootings in relation to the Neptune influence. Currently it appears that the public and the judicial system would rather have 4 dead innocent people than one dead criminal.

Don't have a time for the Oklahoma Shooting but this is the rest of the info.

May 19, 2009 Oklahoma City, OK
Sun 29 Taurus; Moon Pisces; NN 4 Aquarius

Both charts show Sun c. Mercury, but the Oklahoma Shooting has Mercury Rx. Mercury rules the Marketplace so this describes the basics for location of the events.

This conjunction of Sun-Mercury is also squaring a tight conjunction of Chiron (Wounded Healer) 27 Aquarius-Jupiter (Law, Opinion) 26 Aquarius-Neptune (Pharmacy) 27 Aquarius. That certainly seems to explain the difference in the two stories. Aquarius is much more concerned with Vigilante Justice as it is concerned about people who work on their own against the system (Saturn). The Moon was in conjunction with Uranus in Pisces during much of the day. This repeats the picture of vigilantism, victimization and pharamcies.

The chart for yesterday's shooting shows the Sun 28 Gemini-Mercury 6 Cancer filling in the empty leg of the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto t-square.

The pharmacist, Jerome Jay Ersland, is currently 59 years old so he has been going through his 2d Saturn Return during the entire jail process. He was found guilty of murder in the 1st degree on May 26, 2011 Oklahoma City, OK because videos (Neptune) of the crime show that he shot at the burglar in execution style. Apparently he also lied (Neptune) or boasted (Sun) or exaggerated (Jupiter, Mercury) about his qualifications for shooting at burglars who are robbing him which disqualifies his credibility during testimony.

It's important to pay attention to Mars in these charts, of course. In Ersland's shooting at the Oklahoma pharamacy Mars was powerful in its own sign at 21 Aries. It's only aspect is a conjunction to Venus which is also in Aries at 15 Aries. That says a lot about someone who will respond quickly to any provoked adreniline rush. It may or may not explain the lack of understanding from the Judicial System. I don't have a time for the burglary so don't know which house Mars was placed in for that event.

Mars was elevated at the end of Taurus in H10 of the New York shooting yesterday. He was squaring Neptune-Chiron-Descendant.
