On Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2018 the sheriff of Florida’s Broward County, announced that there had been a massacre inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School at Parkland Florida at around 2.21 PM according to Fox News. In toto 17 children and adults dead, another 16 wounded.
The suspect in custody is Nikolas Cruz, 19, a former student who was expelled from the school and who unnerved acquaintances with his desire to be a “professional school shooter.” Before the incident Cruz had no criminal history according to state law enforcement records.
He grew up in Pine Tree Estates, Parkland Florida. Both he and his brother Zachary were adopted. Their their father, Roger Cruz, died of a heart attack in 2004 at the age of 67. On November 1st, 2017 Mrs. Cruz died from complications of the flu. She was 68 and native of Long Island, New York.
After she died Nikolas and Zachary stayed with friends in Lake Worth but Nikolas asked a former classmate if he could move in with him and his family. They agreed, even though he had already been expelled from the school for disciplinary problems, after getting in a fight with his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. That family said everything was going well.
“He had emotional problems and I believe he was diagnosed with autism,” said a neighbor, Mr. Gold. “and trouble controlling his temper. He broke things. He would do that sometimes at our house when he lost his temper. But he was always very apologetic afterwards.”
He added: “He would sometimes be hitting his head and covering his ears. One time, I sent him home because he was misbehaving at our house and he took a golf club and smashed one of my trailers.”
Laying out Nickolas
We have only the police report to say that Nikolas Jacob Cruz was born in Margate, Florida. We do not know where he was adopted, or if the Margate refers to the surrender place, if his parents were in Florida at that time, etc. There a lot of birth unkowns with Cruz so that was given rectifying his chart.
Nonetheless Cruz gets a 22 Scorpio Ascendant, that the Hyperion Symbols say is a “radio message of great urgency.” It has the keyword of demand for it is an insistent call that must be heeded. That seems to be the case as while he had “no criminal record” prior to the shooting, the Parkland Police department was at his house 19 times all regarding violence and a reported Youtube video where Cruz said he wanted to be a “professional school shooter.” Should not an ankle bracelet been in use for him, a relevant point as he was banned from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for violence, and so would have alerted authorities that he was on the premises?
But let’s go the charts…. There are several interesting things in Nikolas’s chart prime among them the three oppositions, and two of those creating a Cosmic Cross. Working around the heel the first is in the green boxes, where wehave the two social planets of Neptune and Uranus in the third house of peers and schooling, opposite mars in the Ninth House of higher self and journeys. This aspect suggests that Cruz really felt stifled at school and resented that the other children were doing better than he a diagnosed “autistic.” Some states have special classes for those children, it would seem that Broward County does not.
The green triangles aspect via a square on either side highlighted in tangerine (this is the Sunshine State) that shows how much his mother meant to him and without her, he felt anchorless and alone. His father, Saturn in this grouping, at the Fifth-Sixth house cusp had died when he was little, so Mrs. Cruz was both mother and father and her death left a gaping hole in his heart.
The final third opposition in complementary purple from the Tenth to the Fourth houses, highlights Venus in the tenth conjunct Mercury and via a translation of light to his Sun in the eleventh house of friends opposite enthusiastic Jupiter in the fourth. This setup suggests he really wanted to belong to his social group, or at least, wanted a social group, but could not fit in with any he found.
It’s a pity that his mother’s death in lieu of his past violence was not paid more respect by authorities, or the FBI report not heeded. Obviously Mr. Moto was not on the job¹ because he would have been the (Scorpio 15) “reporter in hot pursuit of the news” would have gotten the message.
- Mr. Moto is a fictional character created by J. P. Marquand. Peter Lorre was his Hollywood represntation. Great stuff for a Saturday matinee.
