Salman Rushdie Attacked (August 12, 2022)

Salman Rushdie, the author whose writing led to death threats from Iran in the 1980s, was attacked and apparently stabbed in the neck Friday by a man who rushed the stage as he was about to give a lecture in western New York.

This is not a nice thing to have happened, but I suppose it was an event that was bound to happen sometime. Salman Rushdie is a man who has been living under a death threat ever since he wrote “The Satanic Verses”.

The timing comes a few hours after the Sturgeon Full Moon in Aquarius reached its opposition to the Sun in Leo. That dynamic seems to represent the culmination of that long-standing conflict between the Iranian leadership and this author. Saturn = Satan, remember? With the T-squares pointing to the Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction in Taurus, this could prove to be fatal.

Because Rushdie was born under a Gemini New Moon, this event pits Pluto inconjunct to his natal Sun/Moon conjunction. I’m sure other astrologers will see the significance of a transiting Mars passing his natal Mars. He who lives by the (s)word, dies by the sword…

Best wishes, Mr. Rushdie.
