Lacking Astrological Fire

I recently did a post on lacking things in your Astrological chart and how they manifest. In a nutshell, we attract from the outside world and people around us, those things that we lack in ourselves.

I got to pondering my post earlier about Malachi Ritscher and his self immolation. Self immolation is the act of suicide by fire, usually as a protest. Mr. Ritscher was the fourth person in the last 40 years to choose this type of death in the United States.

After looking on the Internet, I came upon his birth details. Malachi was born Mark David Ritscher in Dickinson, ND on January 13, 1954. For those who have trouble getting the right town on a computerized atlas, I used 46N87, 102W77 (MST).

I was looking at his chart specifically to see how he was affected by Astrological fire. The only item he has in fire is the generational Pluto in Leo. In this case, if it wasn't a generational planet, it would be easy to say Pluto (death/rebirth and transformation) in public display of fire (Leo). That would mean that the entire generation was burning themselves up. Let's look a little closer. Remember if something is true in an Astrological chart, it will be repeated many times.

The most striking item in Malachi's chart is a Yod, also known as the Finger of Fate. It "points" to a personal destiny. His Yod consists of Jupiter (expansion) in Gemini (intellectual) and Pluto in Leo (see above). These are pointing directly to Malachi's Sun in Capricorn, which is on his MidHeaven. The Sun embodies the whole person and ego. The MidHeaven is what you strive to attain. In this case, Malachi's Sun is a close conjunction with Mercury. His Fate is to communicate his inner self with steadfastness and purpose on a large scale (Jupiter), forever changing people through upheaval (Pluto).

Astrology also shows us the Malachi was a person who is not easily swayed by others and does not make decisions "on the fly". I can not imagine having such a high concentration of purpose as to light yourself on fire and sit there. I myself would have run like a pansy for the nearest "stop drop and roll" location, and I have pretty good self control. His own purposefulness goes so beyond most people's and it is repeated again and again in his chart.

To stress the fatefulness of his decision, the North Node is also tightly conjunct his Sun in Capricorn. The North Node is a karmic marker. In Capricorn, it indicates the specific point through which someone completed their karmic mission. Since I have no birth time, I can't interpret the Houses. A Capricorn North Node often indicates a prior life in which addiction was a key point, used for escapism. It's hard when everything is colored through rose colored lenses. In this life, Malachi attended AA and had been clean and sober for 16 years, so some of those struggles carried over.

Often, this also indicates a personalization of the sense of Government and Country, as well as a strong inner sense of patriotism. Some fundamental belief is held onto that is bigger than the self.

There is a certain element of being stuck in immaturity for most of life. Even though he would openly admit his age, he most likely tried very hard not to live his age. Then, one day, a Capricorn North Node would simply put their foot down, stand up for a higher purpose, and say "enough is enough".

There could have been thousands of ways that Malachi's chart could have played out. We always have choices. However, what is certain is he felt fated to choose this protest, to choose his death and the pull was incredibly strong. What made him choose fire? We know he lacks it in his chart, and often those who lack fire become enamoured by it. The other answer could be in his overall personality. A lack of Astrological fire also helped him become a High Voltage Electrician.

Interesting piece, VB.

I've been noticing in several charts I've looked at lately, an opposition on the Cancer/Capricorn axis. There's one in this chart, Uranus opposite Sun/Mercury. I don't know what the significance is, but it seems to occur in people who come to public notice for some reason.

Any ideas, VB?

I sent you a pretty long email on my thoughts. Yes, this does indicate a life in the public eye, although not always sought out. It is especially strong with 4/10 house.

It can also be a person who starts life more devoted to home and family, then comes into their own to seek public attention.

I hope the email helped! I was so personally drawn into this post and the last that I neglected my postings for a while! Sorry the reply to your comment took so long! Shame on me!

I do not know much about Vedic astrology other than it is much more predictive than western, which believes in free will to work on things in a chart and not be a slave to them. I checked out your site, and at first was pretty disappointed that it only showed an entire page of things for sale, and no articles or content. I much prefer what you have in your "Inspiration" section.

"My complete life including this website is dedicated to 'Astrology'. I stand inspired by true face to face experiences with the power of this 'Mystic Science'. My journey so far in this incarnation has been miraculous and eventful convincing me completely of an eternal link between beings of this planet & unseen higher cosmic forces."

Blogging is more about content than sales to me. Hopefully you will be adding some articles or more information on Vedic Astrology in the future?
