Bizarre Washington Naval Yard Shooting

Hurricane Ingrid Costa Concordia

Bizarre Washington Naval Yard Shooting

September 16 (Day 259, Simeon):  At 8:15 AM EDT (1215 GMT), Aaron Alexis, 34, began shooting inside Building 197 at the Washington, DC Naval Yard.  Armed with a shotgun and an assault rifle, he killed 12 before he was killed by police.  In the panic that followed, local schools and the US Senate Complex were placed on lockdown.  Alexis, who had served as a Naval reservist stationed in Fort Worth, Texas, was working as a civilian contractor.  He had previous episodes of using his gun to vent his rage from vindictiveness.   He was a practicing Buddhist.

The shooting was the work of Satan, who was a murderer.  It occurred on a naval yard as the Costa Concordia shipwreck was being salvaged from the sea.  And it was heralded by landfall of Tropical Storm Ingrid in Mexico.

Tropical Storm Ingrid Landfall

Tropical Storm Ingrid Landfall Chart, 9-16-13The Washington shooting was heralded by landfall of Tropical Storm Ingrid on the eastern coast of Mexico with winds of 65 mph near hurricane force.  The Ascendant Sign at landfall was Leo, which corresponds to Washington, DC.  And the Descendant Sign was Aquarius, for Florida and the sea.  The Redeemer in Aquarius symbolized being redeemed from the sea.  So, the Ascendant Sign of Tropical Storm Ingrid corresponded to Washington, DC.

Yesterday Ingrid was a hurricane off the east coast of Mexico while Tropical Storm Manuel was off the west coast.  This was double cursing associated with the meaning of the year 2013.  Also, as Ingrid made landfall today, its center split into two balls of convection to symbolize double cursing.

Raising of the Costa Concordia Shipwreck

Costa Concordia Shipwreck Chart, 1-13-11Salvage operations to raise the Costa Concordia shipwreck to the upright position began today.  Cables attached to the ship are being pulled from the shore to roll the ship to the upright position.

The Costa Concordia cruise ship hit a reef off the coast of Italy on January 13, 2013.  Thirty-two people were killed.  The Chart of the sinking of the Costa Concordia contained a Plow crossing through a Ship along with the sign of a flood.

Aaron Alexis Birth Chart

Aaron Alexis Birth ChartThe Birth Chart of Aaron Alexis contains a Ship, a Pole, and a Boomerang.  The Ship configuration is slightly larger than a Catwalk and smaller than a Mystic Rectangle.  The Pole consisted of three oppositions.  This is much stronger than a single opposition and requires some serious skill of balancing.  The Boomerang symbolizes a mastery of critical timing and the ability to strike at precisely the right time.

The Ship, Pole, and Boomerang were all aligned to make a very strong set of oppositions.  The three oppositions of the Pole through the Ship also corresponded to the cables attached to the Costa Concordia shipwreck.

The Sun sign was Aries, for a glorious leader.  Aries corresponds to New York, where Alexis was born.  The Moon was close to full in Virgo, for a civil servant or a waiter.  Alexis worked as a civil servant, and he previously worked as a waiter in a Thai restaurant in Fort Worth.  The Redeemer Planet was in Scorpius, for tipping or bribery, corresponding to being a waiter.  And the Almighty God Planet was in Leo, for dining.

The Red Planet was in Pisces, for a bloody prophet.  This corresponds to a false prophet with blood on his hands.  Alexis became a murderer with blood on his hands.  The Red Planet was in conjunction with the Morning Star in Pisces, for a herald, and the Savior Planet in Aries, for a shepherd, or leader.

The God of the Covenants Planet was in Leo, for the power of the military.  This also corresponds to Alexis' involvement with the Navy.

Shooting Chart

Naval Yard Shooting Chart, 9-16-13The Chart at the time of the shooting is very complex.  It contains a Kite, a Grand Cross, a Mystic Rectangle, and a Boomerang.  The Kite corresponds to the helicopters flying overhead during the shooting.  It points to the Almighty God Planet in conjunction with Midheaven in Gemini, for a notorious witness of dining.  The shooting was into a food court where people were eating breakfast.  The center of the building in which the shooting occurred contained an atrium, corresponding to the Mystic Rectangle.  The Mystic Rectangle also corresponded to the Naval yard, where a yard is symbolized by a rectangle.  The Mystic Rectangle also symbolized the ambulances and police cars responding to the scene of the shooting.  The Grand Cross is the most intensive sign of suffering.  It corresponded to the shooting rampage.  And the Boomerang for a crisis in timing pointed to the Red Planet in Cancer, for a security breach.

The Ascendant Sign was the Savior Planet in Virgo, for Rachel weeping for her children.  This corresponded to those weeping for their loved ones following the shooting.  The Descendant sign was the Mediator Planet in Pisces, for a pastor or priest.  And the Bottom of Heaven was in conjunction with the Last Adam in Sagittarius, for an enemy attack resulting in death in battle.

The Sun was in Leo, for the king of glory.  Leo corresponds to Washington, DC, where the leaders of government were only a mile away.  The Moon was in Capricornus, for a Gentile camp, corresponding to the Naval Yard and to Texas, where Alexis lived previously.

The Redeemer Planet in Aquarius symbolized being redeemed from the sea, corresponding to the raising of the Costa Concordia.

The Morning Star was in conjunction with the God of the Covenants in Libra.  The Morning Star in Libra symbolized judgment as with a rod of iron.  In this case the rod of iron was an assault rifle.  And the God of the Covenants in Libra symbolized the law, corresponding to the massive legal investigation.


The mass shooting at the Washington Naval Yard was the work of Satan.  It occurred as the Costa Concordia was being raised from the sea off Italy.  The Redeemer Planet was in Aquarius, for being redeemed from the sea.  Thirty-two people were killed in the Costa Concordia shipwreck, where 32 corresponds to a conspiracy and Syria.  The shooting was heralded by landfall of Tropical Storm Ingrid in Mexico, south of Texas.

The Birth Chart of the shooter, Aaron Alexis, contained a Pole and a Ship configuration corresponding to the cables attached to Costa Concordia for today's raising operation.  The Birth Chart of Alexis has the Almighty God Planet in Cancer, for dining.  The Shooting Chart has the Almighty God Planet in Gemini, for feasting.  The people who were shot today were eating breakfast in the food court of Building 197, where 97 is for a Reduction in Force (RIF).

Today was September 16, 2013, Day 259, where the numbers mean:  16 sanctification, 13 double blessing (or cursing), 259, Simeon.  Simeon criminality corresponds to the shooting rampage.
