Sirius New Moon and the Hyde Park violence

A police officer was stabbed when a "spontaneous water fight" on the hottest day of the year so far turned violent, the Met has said. Bottles and other items were thrown at officers in London's Hyde Park after the "increasingly large crowd became hostile to police" at about 20:40 BST. Another officer was hit with a bottle, Scotland Yard said, while two members of the public suffered stab wounds. 20 July

To understand the astrology behind the news, let us go back to the chart for the current New Moon at London. Notice that the New Moon [12cn53] is significantly placed in the 10th house as part of an angular T-square. The elements of the T-square are delineated by Martha Wescott as below:

Kronos-Hades: to see incidents where laws or authoritative action “just make things worse”; to  note disgust with laws or authority figures who enforce them.

Pluto-Zeus: to recognize psychological “triggers” – the way people and events can set off strong defenses and buried emotions; events associated with general tension.

Next we notice that the New Moon was conjunct alpha (α) Canis Major, Sirius – brightest star in the sky about which the ancient Roman astrologer Manilius wrote.

"The brilliant constellation of the Dog: it barks forth flame, raves with its fire, and doubles the burning heat of the Sun." [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, book 5, p.316-319].

To see whether this star did really cause July 19 to be the hottest day in London all we need to do is progress the New Moon chart to that date and sure enough we find that the MC reaches an exact conjunction to the New Moon and Sirius!
