Olathe shooting: India shocked after national killed in US

India has expressed shock after the fatal shooting of an Indian national in the US, amid reports that the attack may have been racially motivated. Srinivas Kuchibhotla died shortly after Wednesday's (Feb.22) attack at a bar in Olathe, Kansas. His friend Alok Madasani, also from India, and an American were hurt. Adam Purinton has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder. The killing dominated news bulletins in India and social media, where some blamed Donald Trump's presidency.

To understand the cosmic reason behind this tragic event, we look at the chart for the upcoming solar eclipse(already active) at Olathe. Readers will be aware that transit Mars has been moving to trigger the ongoing Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square.  Fundamentally unstable, when Uranus unites with Mars, their combined influence more often than not manifests as an explosive force. From a negative perspective, that force can be violent. And this is exactly what has happened in Olathe. Notice that the eclipse is not only anchored to the T-square but that it also places the T on the angles at Olathe thereby suggesting that it has chosen this place for the release of its energy.

Astrologer Ralfee Finn describes the challenge of the current period thus:

I best understand the complexity of our current condition as a spiritual crisis, and while its material manifestations are many—political and social chaos; racial, gender, and economic polarization; as well as panic, despair, confusion, anxiety, anger, and depression. At its core, the madness that surrounds us is a manifestation of a spiritual emergency. The soul sickness, which we always knew was there but managed to deny, consciously or unconsciously, self-medicating in as many ways as possible with the hope that it will just cure itself, can no longer be denied. And the clarity of that realization—the glaring illumination and reality of a powerful, victimizing shadow—has the power to terrify but also the power to provoke tremendous healing. But it’s important to understand that as the structures of daily life dissolve and the safety nets disappear, we are being given a list of all the places where social justice—love at the level of the collective—needs to be more thoroughly applied. 

Those who have been paying attention to personal and planetary transformation through an astrological lens have known for quite some time that a crisis was coming. But not many were able to predict the current devastation, and very few predicted the awakening that would occur as a result. Millions of people are seizing this moment by taking personal responsibility and participating in a spiritual revolution that has as its core a genuine concern for all their fellow travelers, regardless of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or species. Our shared humanity is awakened by a shared threat to our survival, and we will not be numbed again despite all efforts to contain our reactions.
