Astrology of Kenya’s Westgate Mall Tragedy

Now! loving thoughts, sent to Kenya, especially to Nairobi, can accomplish much good. for even the portents of astrology, at certain levels of action, yield to heartened-fiery thought.

Fiery World III, 1935 Fiery World III, 609. Astrology is a great science, but it can be ruled by the forces of thought. Thought can indeed have a significance in astrology. Thought creates; thought is a chemist; thought even has an influence on Karma. With such powerful laws does thought contend.

The devestaing event, at the Westlake Shopping Mall was said to have occurred at noon, according to CNN and another time was given at 12:30 pm, by Bloomberg; while others have given 11:00 am and shortly after noon. For now, I’ll discuss the chart of the Republic of Kenya. The independence chart for Kenya, which occurred a year earlier, will be discussed in a later Blog In Pacific Stars and Stripes, for Sunday, 13 December, 1964, it was reported that Kenya celebrated its independence day by becoming a republic, at the stroke of midnight. The chart of the Republic of Kenya, for Saturday, 21 September, 2013 is visually laden with certain preliminary conditions, which, along with other factors and other contributing circumstances, made possible the destructive manifestations, which the beautiful souls of Kenya have experienced.

The position of Kenya, on the great sweep of her zodiacal cycles is in-confluence with certain potentially destructive forces. I say potentially, because from now on, Kenyans can work with these energies that have shown themselves, through murder and mayhem; change its vibration, even. This can occur with the world’s help through harmonious thought-sendings, Ho’opononpono and dynamic prayer; and we astrologers who are aware of what is going on, with the currents of space, can lend a loving hand. Below, are some observations anent Kenya’s recent tragedy.

1. Around noon, transiting retrograde Pluto and Kenya’s progressed Moon were applying to a conjunction, by two degrees and 29 minutes, in the 4th House (land the people of the land, buildings and infrastructure). We know that the Moon represents the public, in a mundane chart. especially the women of a nation and places where huge numbers of people gather. Pluto, of course, is a force of intensified power, which, when weakly handled can become hugely destructive and not beneficial. If we consider the 7 Rays as related to the planets, then Pluto is the channel for the 1st Ray of power. So, this tragic occurrence at the mall was related to this enormous influx of power that was brought into a conjunction with Kenya’s citizens, through a militia. An understanding of the 7 Rays, as applied here, can reveal much. Click chart to enlarge.


The above Tri-wheel shows the natal, progressed and transiting planets for the approximate time (noon) that the events in the mall came to fruition. By the way, this close conjunction is still operating and there is still in the atmosphere of Kenya, this force of intense power connected to the masses; and so we can help through holy thoughts, holy prayers and invocations, for light to descend into Kenya.

Unless one is in the military or law enforcement and has been exposed to danger on a regular basis, so, the juxtaposition of huge forces, such as these as well as being horrific, harms more than the physical body…it leaves an indelible impression on the mental and emotional bodies of the people who experienced it and may even reach as far as the soul. That is one reason, why the sending of our best and loving energies can help in the healing of this fracture in Kenya’s auric field at this time. I don’t believe that an astrological chart explains everything, for there are many layers of causes and effects that have to be taken up in our observation of things. Plus, in the practice of Ho’oponopono, there is no analysis, per se, of why something dreadful happened, just the constant work of cleaning whatever is in us that may have helped to co-create an event. Yet, as this is an article about astrology this chart does offer some other keys to what was happening energetically, over Nairobi.

2. Natal Mars, Uranus and Pluto are opposed the natal Moon, in the chart, for the birth of the republic, in 1964. So, the conjunction cited above, combined with these natal combinations, especially the natal and progressed opposition of Pluto, is another factor in our measurement of things. The transiting Moon (people) was in Aries, deposited by Mars, primarily ruler all sorts of firearms, what’s more is that Mars co-rules the 3rd House of neighboring countries (Somalia).

Transiting Mars was also Quincunx the natal Moon. And so there are at least, six references to the Moon, as well as the other aforementioned aspects that had enough force to densify and bring into the 3rd dimension the subtle patterns of discordant energy, into a siege.

3. Also, we can feel the approaching square of transiting Saturn, in Scorpio, the sign of death and transformation, to the progressed Sun, the vital energy of the country, and the country’s leader (Uhuru Kenyatta) in Aquarius. Aquarius is the sign of humanity and several people from other nations were killed and wounded. The Sun, in the 5th House of large edifices like shopping malls, was 10 minutes away from the 6th House of the military and police forces. The cusp of a house is like a gate or door and the people were caught between the killers in the mall and Kenya’s forces; they were attempting to get pass the doors to the outside, to safety.

The symbolism of Kenya’s progressed Sun may be more related to the shooting and its far reaching effects to the national spirit, when we see that it rules the 12th House of confinement and despair. Saturn rules the 5th House of the mall and its square to the Sun, the ruler of the president whose nephew and fiancés were killed, shows how He, as the symbol of the coherence of the nation, was personally affected. The transiting Sun, ruler of the 12th House of (hidden groups and enemies of the state) was conjunct progressed retrograde Mars (firearms) which is the ruler of the 8th House of the nation’s mortality rate. It was 30 minutes past exact (half a days journey) but in the same degree. This placement shows that the preparations for the strike were being brought into the physical plane.

Important consideration

It is possible that aspects become more physical, after their point of exactness, or partile aspect. Theoretically, some exact aspects may be operating on a higher plane than the physical and require time to manifest, that is when planets separate in arc, or there may not be any recognizable manifestation. Experiment can further elucidate this.

The master Djwal Kul, in Esoteric Astrology (page 216) has said that astrology works on three primary levels: mental, emotional and physical, whereas because the physical plane may be the primary concern of some astrologers then the precursors that are active on the mental and astral levels of awareness, may not be considered. This means that if a dangerous aspect is approaching there may be time to intercede, in order to transmute and re-qualify the energy of the astrology and this depends on whatever level the horoscope is operating at the time. that said, it is important to know that all levels operate simultaneously and interpenetrate.
