The agony of Bill Zeller

zeller

A reader requested that I look at the chart of Bill Zeller, a brilliant programmer who was best known for creating innovative software such as the MyTunes application.  Mr. Zeller committed suicide on January 5th after struggling for a lifetime with memories of repeated sexual abuse as a child. It’s unfortunate that we don’t have a time of birth for Mr. Zeller, but the solar chart (born 10/26/1983 in Connecticut) reveals a stellium (tight conjunction) of four planets.  His Sun and Saturn are tightly conjoined in Scorpio, suggesting a pattern […]

Musings on the Chilean miners

rescue

Yesterday the world watched enraptured as 33 miners in Chile were released from their bondage in the Underworld and emerged relatively unscathed, with amazing stories of bravery and transformation.  One of the more amazing reports that I heard was that the miners were arguing over who should be rescued first, each one wanting their brethren to be released before they themselves were freed.  This has been a truly inspiring story, but the true miracle was the spirit that these men demonstrated during their captivity, despite the agonizing pressures of being […]

Mass suicide feared in religious sect

Thirteen people missing in California are feared to be under the spell of a fringe religious sect and involved in a mass suicide after notes were found referring to “going to heaven” and “the end of the world.”  read more here… The timing of this event is interesting because of the conjunction of Jupiter (confidence and expansion) in Uranus (radical and unusual beliefs).  The Heavens Gate incident in 1997 in which 39 members of a cult committed mass suicide also occurred under a conjunction of Jupiter to Uranus. Update: the […]

After last year’s debacle over the Swine Flu hysteria, vaccine makers aren’t taking any chances and are practically giving the stuff away this year.

I share this not to frighten you, but to demonstrate the power of the current planetary conflict.

A deepwater oil rig off the coats of Louisiana has burned for more than a day.  Eleven workers are missing and it is thought that over a million liters of crude oil could be released from the damaged rig every day.  The oil slick that has resulted is now eight miles long.  This calamity will destroy the delicate ecological balance of this area that is home to a variety of shellfish and fish including the rare bluefin tuna. Ceres, the former asteroid that was elevated to dwarf planet status when […]

The Mysterious Balloon Boy Case

As the world knows by now, 6-year old Falcon Heene’s parents called 911 emergency services on October 15, 2009 to report that young Falcoln had been abducted by an errant helium balloon.  The 911 call reported that Falcon had taken off in a homemade flying saucer, and the operator was skeptical from the beginning.  New details (it’s TMZ, but still…) report that Falcon’s father, Richard Heene, called the FAA first and then called a local TV station BEFORE calling 911.  The family wanted a news helicopter to follow the balloon.
