The Murder of George Floyd (May 25, 2020)
I’ve waited until now to discuss this case. What I did not want to do was add any fuel to the fire of a blazing racial incident between a black man and a police officer. (And to have “Grey’s Anatomy” actually feature the protests after this deadly confrontation in one of their episodes speaks volumes.) But I digress. The murder of black Americans by police has been going on for too long. This unhappy ‘event’ has shaken up the US, with both sides realizing its importance.
George Floyd (October 14, 1973)
Floyd’s birth chart timing is randomized. But there are eight inconjuncts, none of which are dependent on an accurate birth time, and of these, two Yods are formed, one pointing at Mars and one at Saturn/South Node. These may prove prophetic, as we shall see.
Derek Michael Chauvin (March 19, 1976)
I have rectified Chauvin’s birth chart to reflect his conviction of murder (Saturn) at age 45. There is one inconjunct connecting Saturn and the Ascendant. That leaves Mars very near the Descendant in the 7th House (of open enemies). Notice that Floyd’s Mars is also conjunct the Descendant, but this time it’s in the 6th House (of service). Similar location, different results.
Other astrologers have noted that Floyd’s Saturn/South Node conjunction in Cancer is conjunct Chauvin’s Mars. That’s important. It has been suggested that they may have been soldiers/warriors together in their past lives. I agree. There is definitely something karmic going on between them. And the Yod formed by Chauvin’s Ascendant @ 25° Sagittarius and Midheaven @ 22° Libra is pointing at Floyd’s Moon @ 22° Taurus (his emotional neck and shoulder area). It is also significant that Floyd called out for his mother during his final seconds.
Yes, this is personal.
The Murder (May 25, 2020)
I believe this time of 9:25 pm is when he was pronounced dead. So we are looking at the official time of death and not the 9 minutes and 29 seconds that Chauvin was holding Floyd down. Again, there are five inconjuncts, but forming only one Yod, pointing at the Midheaven.
Mars Inconjunct Midheaven
This aspect can mean that you have mixed feelings about all authority figures, including your parents. You may feel that you have to violate the rules laid down by your parents in order to get your way. This is a significant problem, because if it continues into adulthood, you will have great difficulties with employers. Therefore it is very important that your parents teach you how to express your self-assertive drives without going against their teachings. Unfortunately it is impossible to state how that should be done, because the conflict between self-will, on one hand, and self-denial and work, on the other, is different for each person.
Uranus Inconjunct Midheaven
You need to express your thoughts and feelings, but you often upset the people around you with your words. You seem to enjoy creating a stir every time you say something, but this can get you into quite a bit of trouble with parents, teachers and other authority figures. The underlying principle of this aspect is the need to balance your individual self-expression and manner of communicating with your need to learn and grow under the guidance of older people.
(I don’t often wish to be seen as a smart-ass, but it strikes me that these two aspects are expressions of the experience African-Americans have with ‘white’ authority, meaning that George Floyd’s murder is a symbolic act that encapsulates the whole race relationship between blacks and whites with these two aspects of the American way of life.)
