Spellbound Spectators

Spellbound spectators pressed to the fish bowl
Imaginatively entering that world within
Held to the horror of a tragic show
Reversals of someone’s health and fortune

Call appropriate emotions forth
To create a society ideal
Suffering when stirred, cultivates compassion
Especially when pained, by another’s ordeal

Human nature has a tendency to abuse
With self hatred that can be projected out
Could we direct love, sympathy and compassion
To those who hurt or knock others about?


The Shadow of Dominance – Gift of Synergy
Wikipedia and the Merriam-Webster defines “oppression” as an exercise of an authority or excessive power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner. The dark side of ego and pride has an underlying fear of being perceived as powerless, and a natural reaction to the discomfort is to seek “a wielding of will” where one sets himself above another. If the will to dominate shifts toward the will to be compassionate, we will find love. Lifting this shadow of dominance gives the ability to offer the gift of oneself through love rather than will, so there is no longer an identification with the ego. When “dominance” reigns, there is a pushing down of the lover, so that they may rise. But if the gift of synergy is used, trust and goodwill will bring more positive results – whether this is in intimacy, community or the world.

Porn Star, Kitten Killer, Man Eater – twisted delusions of grandeur

To uncloak the identity of a man eater takes a strong stomach, for he had once wrote, “once you kill, and taste blood, it’s impossible to stop. The urge is just too strong not to continue.”

Midnight Cannibal Train

Midnight Cannibal Train

The Man Eating Porn Star, is accused of killing and dismembering a Chinese international student. Was it becuse he was wasting away under a Gene Key shadow of “purposelessness”? Was there a desperate hunger in him for a sense of purpose and worldwide fame? Or was it the woundedness of his Chiron conjunct Fixed star Algo?

We can see from his actions and words that he was psyche up and whether as lover or villain, his commitment was total, living in the “totality” of being alive and alert in the moment, as if on a theatrical stage as an actor in a role even though there was a mysterious detachment under the role. “Life is too short, live every day like its your last!”, he had once exclaimed. A desperation for purpose gave him the adrenaline jolt and thrill he needed to progressively come closer and closer to face his inner demons. These dark shadows had a “preoccupation with death” and a “gambling” edge with a pressure that drove him to try everything and anything, for he was not prepared to die in anyway unfulfilled and without purpose. With his fears of non-existence and In his state of restlessness, the twisted shadow of “suffering and dishonor” emerged to shone forth in his famous kitten killing show.

The shadow of “chaos and disorder” shows up in the porn star’s sex life. He once said, “Luka is unable to live unless there is chaos in his life, it makes him feel as though he matters.” His strategy of dog eat dog was from his distrust in life, while Necrophilia, also called thanatophilia or necrolagnia, is the sexual attraction to corpses. A shadow of “stress” had him operating in a flight or fight mode with a pressure from fear of failure.

He drove himself on a self destructive path all the while stuck in a mindset of “limitation”, as he got progressively more and more perverted with his closed circuit thinking. Dissatisfied with his perceptions of a limited daily boring life, he “over stimulated” his “unstructured” life, by seeking the attention of others for his fantasies, ideas, stories,and discussions. Perhaps he might have been a great story teller in the entertainment business if he had not been operating under the constraints of his shadows.

The head of Medusa from Greek mythology is represented in astrology by the infamous Algol fixed star relating to death and pain. Diana Rosenberg says of Algol, “You will not be able to ignore suffering and horror, or brush it aside… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime.….Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity. These stellar challenges are not to be feared, but understood and used in a positive manner.” Algol is a slippery line between life and death, madness and wisdom. In the Maneater’s chart Algo was sitting right beside Chiron which represents one’s woundedness.

When a video finally emerged of a young male bound on a bed, initially alive and then lifeless with someone repeatedly stabbing the corpse with an ice pick and dismembering the body with a knife, eventually leading to acts of necrophilia and cannibalism, the shadow of corruption was out in the open. Maneater is now claiming irresponsibility by not being accountable for the results of his actions.

It would appear that maneater finally found his purpose, fame and fortune as a storyteller of a very sad, gross story of corruption. Humans are fundamentally elements of music and with one key out of tune, our total symphony can out of harmony in the world. What can we do to correct it?

The relationship between the man eater and his victim according to their chart

Under the influence of the planet Neptune it was very difficult to tell what was illusion and what was ideal for the relationship was under a cloud of idealized fantasy with a conflict between realism and idealism. There was to be totally unexpected and strange occurrences that would take place.

According to their chart, these two were irresistibly attracted to each other and would have the tendency to play ritualized games with patterns of behavior that would gradually have less and less connection with reality. Sexuality became the device for one person to dominate the other, with one assuming the dominant Mars role, while the other assuming a more passive Venus role.

The final result was that the world looked in on this relationship in horror, and it had a very powerful effect on all, for we could see the effects of power not used properly, can completely corrupt – with loss of life.

Algol rules heads of states and beheading. “Algol people seem to either be incredibly sure of themselves or they really have no idea who they. Some are fantastic at assuming a myriad of personalities…. They can sometimes feel rather schizophrenic and as if they are indeed possessed by many demons.

Statement of Despair, Helplessness and Failure by The Gunman of Parliament Hill.

To make sense of a senseless shooting at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, one needs to decide what was the lesson. Was it a testament to a future of corruption, entropy and failure, or a directional shift to kindle a light in the darkness for the preservation and veneration of all?


If we all bring a gift to the world, what was the gift of the gunman of Parliament Hill? Gene Keys can be a tool to show us our personal potential along with our dark, heavy shadows seeking transformation. The Gunman was wading through a Gene Key shadow of (drug) “psychosis” which is no easy matter, for the mind becomes “corrupted” and deranged, with a loss of contact with reality, bizarre behavior, and difficult social interactions. Yet this man was also reaching out through this murky realm to find his gift of “inspiration” from other disciplines.

His Gene Keys show a “natural intelligence” which might have been put to good use if he was drug free. He may have been designed for the limelight to show others with “precision”, how to overcome their sense of “failure” and how to use “restraint” in situations that appear appealing but in the long run would do harm.

The key for his life of a greater promise was the “anticipation” he held tight within his passport. Then, when his “expectations” burst and all the pieces of his life drifted downwards, with no apparent hope remaining, he decided to add his punch line. This punch line centered around an attitude which was overwhelming him. He wanted to express the profound meaninglessness of existence, and in order to do so he would kill off every aspect of his identification of who he was – a person immersed in the utter helplessness of what it means to be alive and dying at the same time.

Trapped between his ideals and the complex problems of his painful limitations, the gunman felt a tension mounting within the dilemma of the rational against the overpowering, intense feelings and he became tied up and twisted in too many knots of emotional challenges. He felt he was being pushed to the limit, under an influence representing powerful internal forces for change, colliding with powerful resistance from the external world. He desperately wanted to escape the pressure, but with every effort he put forth, circumstances seem to hold him back and he felt completely stuck in an oppressive situation. He may have been resistant to any kind of compromise, perhaps partly coming from having made too many compromises in the past, along with being uncertain what he needed to fight for and what he needed to gracefully accept.

Under a shadow of “failure” and drug “corrupted” thinking, he cut himself away from the rest, for he had no rhyme, rhythm or real purpose. Before long, the black hole of “entropy” arrived and a numbness descended into a heavy gloom of depression. His reactive nature fought back in a frenetic urge to escape this hole and to suppress the uncomfortable feelings at all costs.

The gunman may have felt he needed to make a sudden break for freedom wondering if he could find bigger, greener pastures and make something of himself in the broadest sense of the term? His time arrived during a fire alarm at a men’s mission. This alarm prompted his final burst of activity and aliveness. He made a run for it, all the while watching the impact that he was having on others. Sadly, his home run took him down, along with another.

As we journey through our problematic shadows and come out the other end, our genius may emerge. The gunman produces thought provoking questions. Will humanity and earth be a testament to a shadowed future of corruption, entropy and failure or might the directional shift that the gunman was so desperately seeking, create inner unity, kindling a light in the darkness for the “preservation” and “veneration” of all.


Hidden in the open and quite upset
He emerges through the gaping hole
Of the frayed social safety net
A drug addict with a soul

A homeless vagabond begging for help
With hunting rifle, under cloth and arm
On the run, he gives his best shot with a yelp
Raising arms of glee, for he too went down
