Egypt Coptic Christians killed in bus attack

Gunmen opened fire on two buses and a truck carrying Coptic Christians in Minya, Egypt on Friday, killing at least 28, including children. Some 24 people were also injured in the attack. The group of between eight and 10 gunmen, reportedly dressed in military uniforms according to eyewitnesses, approached the convoy in three four-wheel-drive pickup trucks before opening fire, according to local media reports and the Egyptian Interior Ministry.  May 27

The May 25, 2017 New Moon [4ge46] is conjunct the Hyades – a group of “stormy” stars in the head of the charging Bull. About this area, Diana Rosenberg writes:

Often there is something to do with intolerance  and discrimination in their lives, many here perpetrate, experience or have to deal with racism, bigotry and persecution , even extremes of cruelty, insanity, murder and/or suicide.

At Minya, Egypt, the New Moon takes place in the 5th house which on its own is not significant. However, since it is anchored through a hard aspect to Pluto – the apex of a T – on the Ascendant, it carries an important message for the place. Pluto is conjunct stars of the Archer. The Archer with his bow and arrow is fiercely absolutist in his belief. There is no half-way here but extremism for good or evil, including vicious prejudice and cruel, even sadistic persecutions. The Jupiter-Pluto square adds the element of religious intolerance.

The stars of the Twins [1] occupy the descendant,  opposite the apex Pluto, at what is commonly known as the “reaction point” of a T-square. The Twins represent the brotherhood-sisterhood of all humankind, The Twins are siblings who are often at loggerheads so  that issues of hatred, intolerance and racial bigotry are major concerns under the Twins (notice Castor’s bow and arrows and Pollux’s club).
