Astrology of the Ferguson Riot

posted by AstroManda on November 25, 2014

On August 9, 2014 , Micheal Brown, an eighteen year old attending high school was shot  by a police officer,  Darren Wilson who claimed that Micheal Brown tried to attack him and he was just trying to defend himself.  On November 24th, 2014 in response to the decision made by grand jury to not indict Darren Wilson, there were protests held in many places of the US. with some of them turning very destructive.    This is not the first time that this has occurred in the United States and brings up the  historical issue of distrust between colored communities and the law enforcement people.

Although the shooting occurred in Ferguson, its no longer  an event that is related to just this city.  It has become a nationwide issue with protests occurring at many major cities and spurring debates of race relations in the United States.  When President Obama addressed the nation right after the incident, he mentioned "We need to recognize that this is not just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America."

The first one is just the transit chart at the time of announcement in Ferguson, Missouri,  The second  chart shows a  90 degree dial with US Sibley chart in the inner ring and the transit chart of the grand jury announcement in the outer ring.

The important aspects between the transit and US natal chart are marked in yellow in the 90 deg dial ...
