Florida Wendy's Shooting, Red Planet Rising

March 3, 2008 (Day 63, Outcast):  A gunman who opened fire in a West Palm Beach Wendy's shot five people, one of whom was killed, before killing himself.  Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Lieutenant Rafael (Ray) Vazquez, 42, was shot in the back and killed.  He had gone back to exchange a free toy for his 4-year old son.  The gunman was identified as Alburn Edward Blake, 60, of West Palm Beach.  The Wendy's Restaurant was at the intersection of Cherry Road and Military Trail.  The shooting occurred at 12:18 PM EST (1718 GMT).  Blake was born Sept. 3, 1947 in Jamaica.

The victim, Rafael Vazquez, was 42, for Baal.  He and his wife have 5 children, and 5 people were shot by the gunman, where 5 stands for a giant, such as Baal.  It was March 3, for the Judgment of the Holy Spirit in suffering, and Day 63, for an outcast, a symbol of the Fifth Cycle of Discipline.

A huge weather elephant stretched from the Great Lakes to Texas, the sign of the adultery of Reuben and Bilhah.  The bottom of the elephant's trunk turned into the image of an alligator over Texas.  Both an elephant and an alligator symbolize Baal.  The remnants of a cold front that resembled a snake (the symbol of Satan) stretched across West Palm Beach, Florida.

Wendy's Shooting Chart

Wendy's Shooting ChartThe Star Chart overhead was almost identical to the Florida power blackout February 26.  Gemini with the Red Planet was rising and Sagittarius with the Last Adam was setting.  The long explanation of this configuration of February 26 still holds.  The two planets in opposition, the Red Planet and the Last Adam, symbolize the Democratic and Republican front-runners for nomination for President.  Gemini symbolizes Marriage and a witness, as in court, and the Red Plane, for the Blood of Christ, also symbolizes suffering.  The Red Planet in Gemini symbolizes a bloody bridegroom.  Rafael (Ray) Vazquez, who was shot and killed, was a husband and the father of 5 children.

Sagittarius corresponds to the region of Arizona and New Mexico, and by a stretch, Gemini (California) could be associated with Hawaii.  The next US President will be number 44, for suffering, which corresponds to the meaning of the Red Planet.  He will be inaugurated in 2009, which symbolizes the Plagues of Egypt, where Egypt is a type of the world.  Today, US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, left for Egypt to promote a Palestinian State in defiance of the Abrahamic Covenant.  The God of the Covenants (Ringed Planet) was in Leo, which includes the Washington, DC area.

In opposition to the God of the Covenants in Leo was the conjunction of two planets and Midheaven in Aquarius, which corresponds to Florida, where the shooting occurred.  The meaning of the combination in Aquarius is:

  1. Mediator Planet - a fireman.  Rafael (Ray) Vazquez was a fireman.
  2. Midheaven - notorious, sensational news.
  3. Sun - an antichrist.  The gunman fit the description of an antichrist under the influence of Satan, and Vazquez was 42, for Baal, which symbolizes an antichrist.

Gunman/Victim Star Charts

Blake, Vazquez Birth Charts
The Star Charts of the gunman, Alburn Edward Blake, and the victim, Rafael Vazquez, have some similarities.  The two charts have been normalized, i.e. positioned to the same Ascendant point.  Although the exact birth times and locations are not known, the general locations are known.  Therefore, the charts should have reasonable accuracy.  Both charts contain a Plow, the symbol of being plowed under.  The Plow is a sign of intensified suffering.  In a Plow, the opposition of two planets is resolved by the third planet at a right angle.  In Blake's chart, the Plow is pointed at the Red Planet, the sign of suffering.  This could be called a bloody Plow.  In Vazquez's chart, the Plow is pointed toward the Almighty God planet, which is a sign of the victory of the Cross.  However, the Almighty God planet at home in Taurus can also be the sign of a giant.  Blake's chart contains a Sling, which is used for slaying giants, and one corner of the Sling begins with the Almighty God planet.  Both Blake and Vazquez have Stellium's in Leo, the lion of the Tribe of Judah.  Leo corresponds to the internal gates of government and the external gates of the Military.  The scene of the murder at Wendy's was on Military Trail.

Blake's Plow has the Moon in Pisces in opposition to the Redeemer in Virgo, the Virgin.  The point of the Plow is the Red Planet in Gemini, the Twins, which is also a symbol of Marriage and a witness, as in court.  The Moon, Virgo, and Gemini are all related to relationships with women.  Blake's big problem in life was Marriage Culture - women.  The Sling in Blake's chart is used for slaying giants, the symbol of Baal, and the Plow symbolizes intensified suffering in Gemini, for Marriage.  When he could no longer handle the suffering, Blake imploded, then exploded under the power of Baal.  His Birth Sign was Leo, which eventually turned into Satan as the roaring lion seeking someone to devour.

Vazquez's Birth Chart contains a Mystic Rectangle, which symbolizes the balance of the four planets in opposition at the corners of the rectangle.  The rectangle symbolizes the ambulance that paramedic Vazquez rode to help trauma victims.  The Plow in his chart symbolizes the suffering of the victims that he tried to help.  The Plow also symbolized his own suffering and how he died like the victims he was training to help.  The Plow has the God of the Covenants (Ringed Planet) in Aquarius, for Florida, in opposition to the Red Planet in Leo, a sign of bloodshed in government or the military.  The Red Planet is in conjunction with the Last Adam and the Mediator.  When all three are considered, these symbolize Jesus Christ, the Last Adam, who was the Mediator between God and man when He died as a substitute for the sins of mankind (Blood of Christ).  The point of the Plow is the Almighty God in Taurus, which on the bad side can be a sign of a giant, such as Baal.  Vazquez had 5 children, and 5 people were shot at Wendy's, where 5 is for a giant, such as Baal.  Note also that the Ringed Planet is in Aquarius, for Florida, where the shooting occurred.  Florida also has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza, who are engaged in a peace process with Israel in defiance of the Abrahamic Covenant.  Vazquez was 42, for Baal, and Blake was born in 1947, for peace.

Vazquez's Birth Sign was Aries, the Ram and leader of the flock.  He has a Stellium of three planets in Aries, which would indicate strong leadership potential.  He had just been promoted to Lieutenant.  Aries also corresponds to New York, where he was born.  He was born on the New Moon, which means he would have an exceeding difficult time finding his Right Woman.  Without the help of the Holy Spirit, he would not recognize her.  That's because the Moon is dark at New Moon.  And he would face Eclipse Testing from his Right Woman.


The Wendy's shooting was in West Palm Beach, which is Florida County #6.  The victim who was killed was a Palm Beach County employee, who was age 42, for Baal.  He had five children, where 5 symbolizes a giant, such as Baal.  Baal is the enemy of children, Israel, and Marriage.  The victim was killed trying to get a free toy for his child on the day Israel pulled out of Gaza to look good for the visit of US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, who was on her way to Egypt.  As Isaiah said, "Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help" (Isa 31:1).  The shooting was in Florida, which is in the region of Zebulun and has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza.

The Star Chart with the Red Planet on the Ascendant rising in Gemini and the Last Adam setting in Sagittarius was a repeat of the chart of the Florida blackout of February 26.  The shooting was at 26 N., for Political Babylon.  Palm Beach County was famous for the hanging chad stories in the 2000 Presidential election dispute.  The Star Charts for Feb. 26 and today are a sign of the rise of the next President of the USA, who will be #44, for suffering.  He will be inaugurated in 2009, for the Plagues of Egypt.  The two planets in opposition represented the Democratic and Republican front-runners for President.
