The astrology of Alec Baldwin’s shooting accident

The shocking shooting accident on the set of the film “Rust” last week coincided with a difficult week astrologically.  The Moon was just full in Aries, in a challenging alignment with both Mars, planet of violence and aggression, and Pluto, planet of death and rebirth. Any Mars/Pluto combination is fraught with potential for violence, and while I would never say that this alignment caused the accident, its coincidental timing must be noted.

As if that weren’t enough, the new planet Eris was opposed by Mars and squared by Pluto at the Full Moon. You can read more about that here, but with Eris representing discord and small events that unravel into major upheaval, such as the story of the goddess Eris whose rage at not being invited to a wedding led to the Trojan War, we can see how this is no small thing.

Mr. Baldwin was born with the Sun in Aries, and it opposes his Libra Moon.  We don’t have a time of birth which would give us the exact position of the Moon, but we do know that it is in an opposition to the Sun: a Full Moon.  In addition, the Sun and Moon were within fifteen degrees of the lunar nodes, a condition which creates an eclipse (in this case, it was a penumbral lunar eclipse).  Full Moon personalities tend to be larger than life, and when the Full Moon was also a lunar eclipse, those personalities tend to catalyze a fair amount of drama. (Another familiar personality born under an eclipse is Donald J. Trump.)

Once in another Blue Moon – the Virgo Full Moon of March 1st

The month of March begins with a Full Moon in Virgo counterbalancing the mystical magic of the Pisces stellium that I wrote about a few days ago (read more here). With five planets in Pisces and Neptune figuring prominently in the chart of the Full Moon, the desire to transcend and melt into an experience of bliss and creative spirituality will be strong, with only the Virgo Moon to provide balance and order. Integrating polarities is an important part of any Full Moon since the Sun and Moon are always in opposite signs at that time. Here we are learning to find balance between day to day life in a body (Virgo) and the creative inspiration of Pisces.

The opportunity for experiences that open the heart will be many with a trine from Venus in Pisces, which is already open and ready to achieve bliss, to Jupiter in Scorpio which as it prepares to turn retrograde later this month is at a standstill, beaming a laser light of expansion and confidence in our ability to passionately (Scorpio) embrace life and love (Venus) in all of its many forms and with all of the blemishes intact.

A harmonious trine from Saturn to the Moon helps to ground her earthiness amidst the mystical magic of the Pisces/Neptune influence.  This Full Moon asks that we align firmly with our bodies and find our center in the earth while allowing our hearts to open and swell with love and an acceptance of the bliss of divine connection.  Not an easy path, but one which will bring abundant blessings!
