Omar Mateen, is the 29 year old gunman who killed/ wounded at least 100 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., June 12, in the early morning hours, making this the largest mass shooting in US history. He was born in New York to parents from Afghanistan. He is reported to have claimed allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call.
Mateen is a 23 degree Scorpio, with Mercury at 16 degrees of Scorpio (retrograde), Pluto at 7 Scorpio, and Venus at 6 degrees of Scorpio. Scorpio is the most secretive of signs and these individuals seldom reveal their plans to others.
While his time of birth is not published, using 12 noon he has a 26 degree Taurus Moon. If this is the case, his Moon forms a difficult configuration called a t-square with Mars and his Sun.
Mars squares his Sun showing a temper, and Mars square his Moon would show disruptive and angry relationships with women. This is a difficult transit and these individuals are often upset.
If he was born in the late evening hours before midnight, he has a Gemini Moon. This Moon as well, would be part of a t-square with Saturn and Jupiter. Saturn opposing Moon individuals are often depressive, have trouble showing emotions and come across as cold. This aspect would not be indicative of harmonious relationships with women either.
Either way, a t-square is a difficult configuration, especially if it involves the Moon which rules women and our emotions.
His former wife of 4 months described him as 'bi-polar and violent,' and stated she had to call on her family to rescue her from the short lived marriage.
Many bi-polar individuals, or those with emotional problems have an afflicted Moon and Mercury. His Mercury was retrograde, and his Moon opposed his Sun and squared Mars more than likely. The other possibility is that it opposed Saturn and squared Jupiter. The first scenario is more likely.
Pluto conjunct Venus (retrograde) shows an intense individual who could suffer from jealousy and deep seated emotional issues in relationships.
His Saturn falls at 10 degrees Sagittarius and squares Jupiter at 13 Pisces. This square can indicate problems in self awareness. Parental influence can play a role in lack of self awareness, as can early conditioning. He may not have felt he deserved anything worthwhile, and had little hope of success.
As Mateen was 29 years old, he was experiencing his first Saturn return. This can be a difficult period, and most people at this age are trying to lie a foundation for the future.
In his case Neptune was square Saturn and this is a negative and depressing transit typically called 'the dark night of the soul.' Some individuals with this transit lose touch with reality, become depressed and worst case scenario, act out things and situations that involve deep seated issues in their subconscious mind that normal people would refrain from.
Mateen's Father was alleged to have been a former member of the Mujahideen. This refers to guerilla military units during the Soviet war in Afghanistan and is associated with jihadists, according to Wikipedia. He hosted a satellite TV show, and was said to be a candidate for President in Afghanistan. The Washington Post reported his support for the Taliban.
As is the case with every terrorist chart I have looked at there are similarities.
#1-their chart shows violent tendencies to begin with, along with serious emotional difficulties and in many cases violent tendencies toward women.
#2-Neptune is typically involved. Neptune rules religion, or that which cloaks itself in the disguise of religion. Neptune can also indicate delusion, depression and mental illnesses.
#3-Scorpio planets are often prominent in terrorists charts, and Scorpio is the most secretive of signs. Of course there are many people with heavy Scorpio placements that are not terrorists, nor is this alone indicative of being a terrorist.
#4-It generally appears that some type of external conditioning has affected the terrorist. Sometimes this is family conditioning. (Malteen's Father appears to have ties with violent groups one way or the other). Alternatively, the individual feels as though he does not fit in with society or is held back from achieving success. It was reported that Malteen was bullied in school.
With his Saturn square Jupiter he likely felt he did not have a bright future. Typically the chart of a terrorist shows confusing and depressing circumstances, and in some cases physical violence and depression before the terrorist act. Transiting Neptune square Saturn, which he experienced, is indicative of depression.
Mateen was questioned previously by the FBI and worked for a security company. According to reports he considered Disney World as a potential target.
The night of the shooting
Reports state the shooting began at 2AM, June 12. This follows on the heels of the Mercury-Mars opposition in Scorpio/Taurus that was still in orb. Mercury-Mars describes a young angry male with a gun. Mars falls at 25 degrees of Scorpio in the 8th house of death.
Mercury had just crossed Algol at 26 degrees of Taurus, the most malefic of fixed stars associated with 'losing one's head.' Mars had opposed Algol at 26 degrees Scorpio.
The ascendant of this chart is 29 degrees of Pisces (religion or ideology) and Pisces rules Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter is opposing Neptune showing a delusional or allegedly 'religious' individual.
Saturn is square Neptune and forms a t-square with Jupiter. Neptune is in Pisces in the 12th house (secret enemies) This is a brainwashed, delusional or unbalanced individual.
The Moon and Jupiter fall in the 6th house at 20-14 degrees of Virgo. Jupiter shows a younger male, and also someone of foreign descent. While Mateen was born in the US his parents were from Afghanistan, and his Father was associated with various groups in the region.
