Anders Bering Breivik went on trial April 16, 2012 for killing 77 people in two separate incidents in Norway. At 3:26 pm local time July 22, 2011 eight people were killed in the bombing of the Oslo’s government district. At 4:50 pm Breivik killed 69 people in his shooting massacre at the left-leaning Labor Party’s youth camp on Utoya island outside the capital.
Apparently a key issue in Breivik’s case is his mental state which will decide whether he is sent to prison, or into psychiatric care. Apparently one report deems him legally insane, and another states he is mentally competent.
Not having Breivik’s birth time, I drew up a solar chart using his birth date and place of birth. Breivik was born February 13, 1979 in London. He is an Aquarian Sun sign with his Moon in Virgo.
Looking into his chart I had to decide is he mentally competent. You would think anyone who sets out to kill a large number of people cannot be sane. In astrological terms how Breivik acts is ruled by a square aspect between Mars in Aquarius and Uranus in Scorpio in his birth chart. The square indicates Breivik believes in decisive action. He has a fierce determination to bring about change, no matter how destructive. He is idealistic, and when upset with what he considers inactivity over issues he feels must change, Breivik takes on the revolutionary desire to overthrow government decisions.
In his chart Mercury in Aquarius allows us to see how Breivik thinks, and despite some good aspects with other planets Mercury forms a square to Uranus. The aspect makes him quite bright, but at the same time he can make snap judgments. He is not open to advice from anyone. Breivik is opinionated, difficult, excitable and capable of violence especially for what he deems is an important cause.
As an Aquarian Sun sign Breivik will seldom his emotions, and when he does it is never as others think he should. Any reference to him being “flattened” emotionally would be incorrect. He may not cry when you expect him to, or react the way you think he should, but he is “not legally insane”. The Norway massacre was well thought out and planned in detail, over a period of time, to further his beliefs and agenda.
