What is happening between USA and Iran is not a World war but it may develop into a major war and may be later into a World war. What we must always remember is that after the end of second World war in 1945, there have been at least three regional wars every ten years; mostly Asian and African countries have been involved whereas USA and Russia have made lots of profit by selling arms and ammunition.  read more...

Be it the killing of children in Peshawar where as many as 140 children were killed in an open shoot out by the terrorists or the Beslan school siege tragedy where out of 333 people killed, 186 were small children; it is a pain for the world to watch the killings of the innocent bundles of joy. 

For whatsoever the reason, the killing of children can’t be justified. Now, the past week has been an anxious one for our friends and family in USA due to multiple shooting incidents. Where is USA heading with all the school shootings! Killing in a spurt of anger, just because one is in ready possession of a gun, killing without any rhyme or reason; when such indiscriminate shootings stop and the bigger question is that when will the gun issue be handled.

On May 24, 2022, a teenager 18-year old Salvador Ramos came armed with a gun to Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, USA, where he fired indiscriminately; killing 19 children and two teachers, and wounding 17 others. Earlier that day, he had shot and wounded his 66-year-old grandmother. 

The scars of such events shall remain printed in the minds of those people and young children, who have witnessed such scenes. Coming to statistics [‘Sandy Hook Promise’]: 

- Each day 12 children die from gun violence in America. Another 32 are shot and injured.

- Guns are the leading cause of death among American children and teens. 1 out of 10 gun deaths are age 19 or younger.

- Firearm deaths occur at a rate more than 5 times higher than drowning deaths.

- The U.S. has had 2,032 school shootings since 1970 and these numbers are increasing.

- An estimated 4.6 million American children live in a home where at least one gun is kept loaded and unlocked.  

- Nearly half of all parents with a weapon in the home wrongly believe their children don’t know where a gun is stored.

- The majority of individuals with diagnosed mental illness do not engage in violence against others.                               

Several important charts made for the purpose of mundane studies give strong indications for the events to come; the Chaitra Shukla Pratipada chart, Surya veedhi charts, Krishna paksh and Shukla paksh charts all contribute.

Journal of Astrology - vrishabh_suryavidhi_may2022 Let’s check the rueful event in the Vrishabh Surya veedhi chart for USA. In this case (Chart-1):

- Ascendant is right at the degree of Ketu.


- Sun is placed in the 8H along with retrograde Mercury; both aspected by Mars.


- The fifth house of children has both Saturn and Mars. 

- The 5L Saturn is at gandanta.

In the Krishna Paksh chart (Chart-2) of the very next day:

- Rahu can be seen in the fifth house of children. 

- Here, Saturn is influencing both the fifth house and the fifth lord. 

- Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus where Venus is the 6L. 

- The placement of Jupiter and Venus in the fourth house gives further indication as the fourth house has the karakatvas (significations) of land, house, building, an office and here a school.

There was another event of the same kind in 2012; where 20 children and 6 adults were shot dead in a shoot-out in Sandy Hooks Elementary School in Connecticut. The facts in the beginning of the article have been taken from the site of Sandy Hooks Promise - a national Non-profit organisation founded by people who lost their loved ones in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shoot-out on 14 Dec, 2012. The organisation was formed with an aim to end school shootings and violence to children. But, well 948 shootings have taken place since the tragedy in this school. 

Let’s utilise one of the tools to get a glimpse of the event. In Vrishchika Surya veedhi chart of USA for year 2012 (Chart-3), Mars is aspecting the lagna degree rather closely. This Mars is aspected by Saturn from the 5H. Saturn placed in the fifth house is also the 8L of the horoscope.

Journal of Astrology - suryavidhi_nov2012The fifth lord Venus is placed in 4H in  debilitation; aspected by retrograde afflicted Jupiter showing the harm to children.

Another instance of shooting was in Columbine from where the expression ‘Columbine effect’ (indicating copycat killings, much worse than this one) came into being. There was school shooting and attempted bombing at Columbine High school in Colorado, where 12 students and one teacher were murdered and many more injured on 20 April 1999.

IJournal of Astrology - suryavidhi_april1999n Surya veedhi chart of April 1999 USA (Chart-4), we can clearly see the concentrated effect of malefics on the 5H once again with Saturn, the debilitated marak. More so, the 5L Mars was in mrityu bhag

Many more instances of school shootings have been recorded. Attribute it to the easy availability of guns in America; an American can buy a gun in less than an hour whereas in other countries, the whole process of procuring a gun can take months. There are some laws but so many loopholes too.   An 18 year old can buy a gun in USA but not consume liquor till the age of 21. Such a convenient procedure for buying of arms is a decided threat for the society. The lenient laws have led to the situation where the number of guns in USA is more than the total number of people; with a ratio of 120.5 firearms per 100 residents. As per a study, 7.5 million adults have obtained guns in the two years from 2019 to 2021. Unfazed at the trouble looking at them right in the face, people do not wish to let go of their constitutional right to have arms. 

As per the Small Arms Survey, 390 million guns were in circulation in USA in 2018. Also, three out of every ten US adults own a gun. (Pew Research Center).

What an irony that a nation which is the biggest exporter of arms; there are maximum gun related killings in this nation only. An international comparison of gun related killings as a percentage of all homicides, US heads the list.

USA                    79% 

Canada                37% 

Australia             13% 

Britain                 04%

Then, there is a massive political divide over the gun issue in the USA and it is a major task to handle the gun laws. “Thirteen states, all controlled by Democrats, have enacted or expanded background checks for new gun purchases. On the flip side, 14 states controlled by Republicans, have passed laws allowing their citizens to carry guns with no permit process at all. The political divisions on gun laws remain sharp.” (New York Times).

To quote President Biden - “As a nation, we have to ask, ‘When in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?'” this is what Biden said on national television, suggesting reinstating a ban on assault-style weapons and other “common-sense gun laws.”

Will the United States wake up to the need of handling the gun situation - perhaps Yes, now is the time to ruffle the old laws. Mars in the 3H of the Krishna paksh chart (chart-2), aspecting 6H, 9H and 10H indicates a furore among people, questioning the court of law and judiciary; in this case it is the laws regarding Gun procurement.   

On one hand, transit of 5L and 8L Jupiter along with Mars in the 8H of USA is obviously showing the trouble. On the other hand, USA running the vimshottari dasha of Rahu-Jup-Mer, where Mercury is the 11L and Jupiter is placed in the 11H of ordinance and legislation, is clearly pointing towards the reconsideration of gun laws.
