Jupiter the ruler of Sagittarius and indicator for the target itself was in Libra the sign of relationship orientation and in house 5 the house of fun, self-centeredness expression of personal emotions and sexuality but opposite the position of Uranus in Aries the indicating factor for the typical emotions of the current era of the rising of neo-fascism like racism and projection of hate into political motifs.
The shooting was begun with an ascendant of 21°Gemini (Moon-Uranus topics) – a degree known for the topics of intense disgust due to castration, nervousness, paranoia and attempts to get rid of the burdens of unfulfilled emotional desires.

The strife for balance of injustices or pains felt or experienced by the shooter like in revenge are to be considered as typical emotions in Libra.
The Las Vegas shooter, 20°Aries and the era of neofascism
The Las Vegas shooter and the influence of the neofascist propaganda, debates, political mainstrea, neofascist Trump presidency
Stephen Craig Paddock was born on April 9, 1953 with the Sun between 19° and 20°Aries (exact birth time unknown) in exact conjunction with the Uranus position during the inauguration of Donald Trump as American President (20°46`Aries)) which represented the first Uranus return since the inauguration of Adolf Hitler as German chancellor (19°55` Aries). Aries is the astrological resonator for the 1st and basic circuit in the human nervous system and its function: capacity of self-defense, fighting, warfare, action, speed, competition, strength, dominance, superiority and factual individuality. Aries stimulates the basic chakras in the nervous system. Central reflexes of Aries are grounding in action, fighting, warfare, mobilization and moving forward. Aries resonates with the level of mono-causality, unicellular organisms and ego shooters.
Conclusion: the position of the sun in Stephen Craig Paddock`s birth chart shows a direct resonance with the basic constellation of the neo-fascist era that began with the Uranus ingress into Aries in 2010/11. The conclusion here is that the triggering of emotional topics of 20° Aries during the US presidential elections and since the Trump inauguration played an important role in the 2017 Las Vegas massacre.
The target selected by the Las Vegas shooter were not Muslims nor Islamists. The choice of Country Music fans at Las Vegas delivers the image of an emotion of disgust directed against middle class white US Americans` culture. This indicates the possibility that US american rural or small town neo-fascism might have been the target. In the light of these considerations the alleged ISIS claim to the authorship of the massacre comes as an attempt of the neo-fascist alliance between ISIS and the Saudi & Trump alliance to distract the public from the actual motifs of the mass murder.
The Sun in Aries was in opposition to the minority status (Saturn-Neptune conjunction) that Stephen Paddock had to face in this incarnation. The recent transits of Uranus over his Sun-Venus conjunction seems to have triggered the decision to carry out the attack.
Neptune in house 10 stood for all topics related to a minority status, depression through loosing or feeling as a looser. All this makes the shooting look like a rebellion directed against the killer`s subjective, personal minority status and experience of loosing.
The birth charts for Nevada
The first step of the foundation of Nevada was the formation of Nevada Territory on 2 March 1861. Carson City the capital of Nevada is located at 3°Aquarius and 20°Leo.
Nevada Territory was founded with a Mercury-Neptune conjunction near 28°Pisces over the astrogeographical position of Las Vegas which today is the state`s biggest city. The conjunction of Mercury with Neptune is the most archetypal of all astrological constellation in regard to corruption, ruthless exploitation of whatever resources, the Mafia and all types of organized crime, fraud, stealing and manipulation. Mercury-Neptune also stands for the entertainment industries. The constellation shows how much Las Vegas represents the fulfillment of the dreams of the era of the foundation of Nevada. The Mars-Pluto conjunction known as the most violent of all planetary aspects on 7° and 8° Taurus the sign of occupation of territory stands for the violent, intensely aggressive and destructive mentality of the settlers and the basis of the psychology of the foundation process of the Nevada Territory.
The day Nevada joined the USA again saw Mercury the planetary indicator of intelligence, playing and gambling at 2°46` conjunct the 4°Scorpio resonance coordinate of Las Vegas.
