Portland deaths and New Moon in Hyades

Two men were stabbed to death in Portland on Friday when they tried to stop their attacker from harassing two women because they appeared to be Muslim, police said. The incident unfolded on a commuter train hours before the start of Ramadan, Islam’s holy month, when most of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims observe a religious fast. The attack began shortly before 4:30 p.m. when a man started yelling ethnic and religious slurs toward two women who appeared to be Muslim on a MAX train at the Hollywood Transit Station, the Portland Police Department said in a statement. Three men who intervened were stabbed, two fatally. The attacker was arrested shortly after he got off the train, police said, adding that the women left the scene before police could interview them. May 27

The New Moon at Portland is placed very significantly on the MC. The following extract from yesterday’s post [1] on the attack in Egypt on Coptic Christians is relevant as the theme is the same:

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.

Here too the Moon is in hard aspect to Pluto .  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.

However, in this story an additional star is “actor”. The New moon is also conjunct Menkib, xi Perseus so that Perseus’ theme of rescue [2] continues here!

Two other points are relevant here. First that on May 26, the transit Moon, acting as the minute hand of the cosmic clock conjoined Mars opposite Saturn (forming). The chart for Moon opposite Saturn has the aspect aligned with the horizon while the Jupiter-Pluto (religious fanaticism) square is on the meridian. Second, at the reported time of the attack (4:30 pm) the same Jupiter-Pluto square is on the angles.
