'Accidental hero' halts ransomware attack

The “accidental hero” who halted the global spread of an unprecedented ransomware attack by registering a garbled domain name hidden in the malware has warned the attack could be rebooted. The ransomware used in Friday’s attack wreaked havoc on organisations including FedEx and Telefónica, as well as the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), where operations were cancelled, X-rays, test results and patient records became unavailable and phones did not work. But the spread of the attack was brought to a sudden halt when one UK cybersecurity researcher tweeting as @malwaretechblog, with the help of Darien Huss from security firm Proofpoint, found and inadvertently activated a “kill switch” in the malicious software.  May 14

Regular readers are aware that eclipses long gone can be brought to life by activations of the eclipse chart in the present.  This news is best understood if we go back to the chart for the solar eclipse of September 1, 2016 at London. The New Moon eclipse lies in the midst of the stars of Leo and under the auspices of Thuban of Draco and Alioth of the Great Bear. About this area, Nick Fiorenza writes:

The over-seeing stars of Ursa Major west of Regulus (Early Leo and Cancer) are those of the integrous side of the Bear--that which is oriented toward a Greater Vision: to be a caring and nurturing force for ourselves and for the peoples of the Earth, and they also imply this responsibility. Those to the east, which lie over the later “hind of the Lion” toward Benatnasch, the tail of the Bear, at the Leo-Virgo cusp, are of those focused in controlling and perpetuating the suppression of people through manipulation--indeed the Bear is torn.

Thuban of Draco represents the "tear of the Bear. It  dramatizes  the separation between those choosing to fight for a greater evolutionary vision and those wanting to maintain totalitarian control of the Earth.

Zosma, Chort and Denebola are a triangle of stars that form the hind of the Lion. They represent  physical toxic congestion that give rise to chronic health conditions, generally of an abdominal and intestinal nature.

Reading  Nick Fiorenza’s account symbolically and applying it  to the news here, we have a “health condition”  caused by “toxic congestion” of the World Wide Web  by the malicious ransom ware creators.   Our “accidental hero” who stopped the virus from spreading can be said to have the qualities of the nurturing  Great Bear who stops those wanting to control others represented by the stars of the Lion and Draco, the dragon.

The second important observation is that the eclipse formed a T with the Mars- Saturn-Neptune square. As mentioned in my previous post medical astrology links Mars-Neptune to infections that lower our vitality and cause physical illness. Practical Saturn in the mix  here finds a way to halt the spread of the infection.

If we now progress the eclipse chart to May 13, when our “accidental hero” halted the spread of Ransomware , we find the eclipse T-square aligns with the progressed horizon axis and is thereby triggered.
