UN advisor arrested in Nepal for pedophilia

Zeus and Ganymede - Adolphe Thabard

Last week, Peter John Dalglish, United Nations adviser and founder of the Street Kids International charity, was arrested on suspicion of pedophilia, at a home that he was staying at in Nepal. During the arrest, two young children, ages 12 and 14, were "rescued" from the home.  It is important to note that there have been conflicting reports about the children that he was found with, with some sources saying that two boys were found in his home, and other sources suggesting that it was two girls.

The news from Nepal comes to us just as Mercury stations to go direct. A chart for the station drawn for Kathmandu, Nepal is shown here. Notice the cluster of planets in the 5th house of children square another cluster in the 8th house of sexual abuse.

Let us remember that this square in isolation could have meant several other things but astrology is all about looking at how all the pieces come together. Here we have Mars-Pluto in the 5th, a combination that we associate with the rapist or his victim. In her book, Astrology of Fate, Liz Greene writes:

Sometimes, the fate of Mars-Pluto is physical rape. In making this statement I am not in any way implying that if one has a Mars-Pluto aspect in the birthchart then being raped or becoming a rapist is an inevitable result. But there seems to be a relationship between the aspect and the concrete experience of being raped….Rape belongs to the Mars-Pluto realm. We have already met the symbolic motif of the rapist in Pluto himself. This motif has more of a tendency to externalize when Mars joins him, perhaps because of the intense pressure of anger and frustration which so often accompanies the more difficult aspects. [1]

The second piece to consider are the stars that form the backdrop to Pluto. These are stars of Aquila, the Eagle,  symbolizing Zeus and often portrayed carrying away the youthful Ganymede. In addition  Neptune on the descendant is placed amidst the stars of sidereal Aquarius.  Diana Rosenberg links this area to “sexual pedophilia” pointing out that in Greek mythology, Aquarius was Ganymede, a naked youth kidnapped by Zeus.
