The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-nam, has been killed in an attack in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police say he was waiting at the airport for a flight to Macau on Monday when a woman covered his face with a cloth which burnt his eyes. He was using a passport in a different name at the time. The late Kim Jong-il's eldest son is thought to have fled North Korea after being passed over for the leadership. Kim Jong-nam was attacked at about 09:00 (01:00 GMT) on Monday while waiting at the budget terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport for a 10:00 flight to Macau, Malaysia's Star newspaper reports, quoting police.

This incident is best understood if we begin with the chart for the September 17, 2016 Lunar Eclipse at Kuala Lumpur. Here the Sun [24vi] is conjunct the star Alkaid or Benatnasch. Nick Fiorenza’s delineation of Alkaid would appear to describe the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un quite well.
Alkaid means the leader. This star expresses the old dictatorial and totalitarian stream of consciousness. Benetnasch is of this long-established totalitarian governing paradigm--generally of a patriarchal nature. In its old form and when expressing with influence of the stars of late Leo (the tail of the Lion, the racket of Canes Venatici and the hot air of Antilia), Benetnasch articulates those who tend to act as manipulating and controlling godheads, which perpetuates a dogmatic societal structure that keeps individuals from becoming self-responsible, and from evolving into their own self-mastery.
The eclipse Moon [24pi] is in Pisces – a sign that longs to get away from worldly concerns. Escapism and self-indulgence comes easily to those at the lower end of Pisces. The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-nam is described perfectly by the sign Pisces.
Now notice that the two luminaries form aspects to the star beta (β) Gemini, Pollux on the Ascendant. Castor and Pollux of Gemini are two brothers who are often at loggerheads. The story of Cain and Abel or Romulus and Remus where one brother kills another is often linked to the stars Castor and Pollux.
In addition the luminaries are square Mars [23sa] which is conjunct upsilon (υ) Scorpius, Lesath in the sting of the Scorpion. Diana Rosenberg links this star to assassinations as well as with poisons.
If we now progress the eclipse chart to Jan 14, the date of the news, we find that the progressed Ascendant reaches a conjunction to Mars and Lesath triggering the event.
