Aurora, Colorado Mass Murder at Batman Premier

July 20, 2012 (Day 202, Divine Division):  A gunman burst into a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado and opened fire on those in attendance, killing at least 12 and injuring 58.  He came in the back door of Theater #9 in full battle gear and threw in two smoke bombs.  Armed with a shotgun, assault rifle, and pistols, he walked up the aisles shooting people as they fled.  The theater was packed with young people for a special midnight premier of the new Batman movie, "Dark Star Rising."

The alleged gunman, James Eagan Holmes, 24, of 1690 Paris Street, Apartment #10, surrendered to police outside the theater without incident.  His apartment was left booby trapped.  Here the numbers mean:  24 Satan's strategic attack on Israel; 169 running the course of life; and 10 Laws of Establishment.


From Divine Viewpoint, the Colorado shooting was the work of Satan, who was a murderer from the beginning.  Satan hatched the plot and used Holmes to do the shooting.  On the satellite weather image over Colorado was the skull of a goat, a sign of Satan as the agent of sin (Lev 16:10, 22) and death (Heb 2:14).  Over the region of Pisces (Kentucky to Alabama) was an alligator, a symbol of Baal.  The mouth of the alligator stretched into Louisiana in the region of Scorpius, the Sun Sign of Holmes.

The shooting occurred in conjunction with the first New Moon after the Summer Solstice.  The New Moon was on July 19, 2012 at 0424 Universal Time (UT), which was July 18 in Colorado.  The shooting on July 20 was on the 3rd day after the New Moon (counting from one), which corresponds approximately to the day for the worship of Athena on the 3rd day of the new year in Athens.  Since days began in the Attic Calendar at Sundown, July 20th would have only been the 2nd day, but the association between the peaks of Colorado and the goddess of Mount Olympus obviously corresponds to Athena.  In the Attic Calendar of Athens, the goddess Athena was worshipped on the third day of the New Year by pouring out a libation to her.  And in our calendar July 20th was technically the 3rd day after the Summer Solstice (New Year's Day in Athens).

Athena was the Prostitute of Babylon just as Ishtar in Babylon.  Satan reveals himself through the Evil King and the Prostitute of Babylon.  So, he picked July 20th for the massacre in Aurora as a memorial to one of his favorite religious lies, the story of Athena, the goddess of Mt. Olympus.

Batman symbolizes one of the mighty men of old (demon gods) (Gen 6:4).  A bat is a creature of darkness which symbolizes Satan as lord of the flies (2 Ki 1:2, 3; Mk 3:22).  Bats live in caves, corresponding symbolically to darkened movie theaters.  Batman, as a man under the power of Satan, symbolizes the antichrist (1 Jn 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 Jn 7).  The antichrist is Satan's substitute for Jesus Christ in Hypostatic Union.

Colorado corresponds to the high place of the United States and to the Holy of Holies.  To Satan, however, it is the high place of Baal, which is like Mount Olympus.  Aurora means dawn, and Satan portrays himself as the herald of the dawn as the Morning Star.

Shooting Chart

Aurora Shooting ChartThe Chart at the time of the shooting at 12:39 AM contains a Plow and an overturned Carafe.  A Plow symbolizes intensive suffering, like being plowed under.  The Plow pointed to the Last Adam in Sagittarius, for an enemy attack.  A Carafe symbolizes a bottle of cursing or blessing.  The overturned Carafe symbolizes cursing poured out.  The overturned Carafe symbolizes pouring out a libation to Athena on the 3rd day of the Greek New Year.  July 20, the day of the shooting, was the 3rd day after the first New Moon after the Summer Solstice.  Also, the shooter's apartment was booby trapped with a bomb made with bottles of liquid that mixed together when tripped.  And there were other bottles apparently containing accelerants.

The Carafe was poured out in the direction of the Sun and Moon in Cancer.  The Sun in Cancer symbolizes an entertainer, corresponding to the movie theater, and the Moon in Cancer symbolizes security over a group.  The shooter took advantage of the audience corralled in the movie theater to ambush them.  The Savior Planet was also in Cancer, for a healer, corresponding to the medical personnel needed to treat the wounded.

Midheaven was in Sagittarius, for a notorious raiding band.  The Bottom of Heaven, IC, was in Gemini, for Rachel weeping for her children.  Those who attended the Batman movie were mostly young people.  Gemini corresponds to California and Israel.  James Holmes was from San Diego, California.

There were three pairs of planets, correspond to a flood.  The rush of people out of the movie theater, corresponds to a flood.  The pair of planets in Taurus symbolize Satan as conqueror and ruler of the world.  To conquer he will kill his enemies as the shooter did in Aurora and as the Syrian Army is doing in the massacre of its citizens.

The God of the Covenants Planet in Virgo symbolizes a caretaker, corresponding to the emergency services personnel who cared for the injured.  The Red Planet in Virgo symbolizes a bloody son, corresponding to the injured children in the shooting.

The Mediator Planet in Pisces symbolizes a priest of Baal, corresponding to the shooter under the power of Satan and to Batman.  Pisces corresponds to the region from Kentucky to Alabama, which symbolizes Law Enforcement and the Criminal Justice System.

The Redeemer Planet in Aquarius can symbolize a movie theater.  Aquarius corresponds to Florida and Greece.  President Obama was visiting Florida.  He decided to return to the White House after the shooting.  And Greece was the home of Athena of Athens and Mt. Olympus, the high place that corresponds to the high place of Colorado in the US.

The pairs of planets in the Chart symbolize a flood.  The worst flood in six decades occurred in Beijing the day after the shooting.

James Holmes Birth Chart

James Holmes Birth ChartThe Birth Chart of James Holmes contains a Skull, which is a morbid symbol of death at the hands of Satan, who has the power of death.  There are three planets, including the Sun, in Scorpius, the symbol of Satan as the enemy and criminal.  The three planets in the sign add great power to the sign in the Chart, and pairs of planets in Libra and Sagittarius also add power to these signs.   The pairs of planets symbolize a flood.  The evil actions of Holmes at the movie theater certainly produced a flood of panic stricken people.

The Sun in Scorpius, symbolizes Satan, as an angel of light.  Holmes was very brilliant and well mannered.  The Savior Planet in Scorpius symbolizes a Satanic attack, and the God of the Covenants in Scorpius symbolizes a false prophet.

The Moon was entering Virgo on the cusp of Leo.  In Virgo it could symbolize a medical staff, corresponding to Holmes' medical studies for his Ph.D. in neuroscience.

There was a pair of planets in Libra.  The Last Adam in Libra symbolizes being cursed by the law.  The law will condemn Holmes.  And the Red Planet in Libra symbolizes a mass murderer.

There was also a pair of planets in Sagittarius.  The Redeemer in Sagittarius symbolizes being redeemed from the enemy.  And the Morning Star in Sagittarius symbolizes a battle leader, which is how Holmes behaved in his final assault on July 20, 2012.

The Almighty God Planet in Pisces symbolizes the monster whale, which is a symbol of Baal.


The shooting at the Batman movie premier in Aurora, Colorado was the work of Satan, who was a murderer from the beginning (Jn 8:44).  This is not an idle statement.  Satan is the ruler of the world and has the power to do these things.  Although his motives are not always obvious, the shooting occurred on the 3rd day after the New Moon after the Summer Solstice.  This was the day of Athena in Athens, the goddess of Mt. Olympus, corresponding to the Prostitute of Babylon.  Athena was worshipped on her day by pouring out a libation to her.  The Chart of the shooting contains an overturned Carafe pointing to the Sun and Moon in Cancer.  Satan saw that as a memorial to Athena, who was one of his comic book heroines, like Batman.  The massacre in Aurora, the largest mass shooting in US history, was Satan's way of sacrificing to himself.

The Chart of the shooting adds more detail of what actually happened from Divine Viewpoint, but it doesn't explain God's motives for allowing Satan to commit the mass murder.  With his strong beginning in the shooting, Satan will undoubtedly also run the trial of the shooter.  And this is all likely part of Satan's Appeal Trial, which is currently taking place in Heaven.  The summary execution of the shooter might help to alleviate the Satanic curse on Aurora.

The shooting was in Theater #9, where 9 stands for the Plagues of Egypt.  US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just visited Egypt to meet with the new President, who previously attended college and lived in California, the home of the shooter.  Egypt symbolizes the world, and there are curses associated with visiting it (Isa 31:1).

The shooting occurred on July 20, 2012, Day 202, where the numbers mean:  20 external gates of the military; 202 Divine Division (ref. the year 2002).

This act of criminality and domestic terrorism was home grown from Satan and not from the foreign enemies of the US.  The shooter was born under the Sun sign of Scorpius, for Satan, the enemy and criminal.  The shooter had three planets in Scorpius, which adds power to the influence of this sign in his life.  Only the Grace of God and strong faith could keep Satan out of his life.
