I'm discussing the chart of Elliot Rodger who was responsible for the Isla Vista killings in California, US. Elliot Rodger killed 6 people and injured 14 others before taking his own life. It all happened on the 23th of May in 2014 near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The main reason for his actions was because he was very angry with the campus girls for rejecting him and also envious of the campus boys.
Elliot was actually born in London on the 24th of July in 1991 but moved to the United States when he was five. His chart has got to be a fake follower chart. So, I have chosen the geng-chen as his hour pillar. There is only one self star, yi protruding in the month stem. All the other yi, self stars and gui, resource star are all buried inside the earth. So, this chart is a fake follower chart. A fake follower chart is treated as a strong chart. So, the self stars and resource stars are negative. When the water resource star protrudes, all the stars will turn negative except for the fire output star because earth -> metal -> water -> wood.
Many earth stars in the earthly branches can make a person easily depressed. Elliot's chart has all the earth stars in the earthly branches. So, there is no doubt that this is a case of depression. Furthermore, his younger days were also not that favorable with the negative self star, jia protruding in his jia-wu luck pillar. Very challenging for him but still manageable since his positive metal stars, geng and xin were controlling the negative wood.
Depression alone will not necessary drive a person to kill. So, what was the cause?
Well, it's the negative "demon" gui. Negative gui is the demonic voice in our hearts and if not arrested, it can cause us to lose our minds. As far as depression is concerned, negative gui is worse than the earth stars. Remember that only if gui is negative. Elliot Rodger was in his gui-si luck pillar when this tragedy occurred. On top of that, this gui, resource star also broke the structure of this fake follower chart. A follower or fake follower chart is most afraid of the resource star. From my experience, when the structure of a follower chart breaks, the character of the person can also turn for the worse.
When did his crazy and destructive ideas of revenge started to go out of control?
It was in 2013, gui-si year when gui-si formed into a negative fu-yin with the luck pillar. This negative fu-yin also amplified the protruding negative gui and increased his already depressed mind caused by the earth stars.
The negative yi-wei fu-yin in the natal chart tells us that there is a possibility of a sad event waiting to happen. On the day of the killings, there was another negative jia-wu fu-yin. Both these fu-yins amplified the protruding self stars which represented his "enemies". Well, I'm sure you know that a negative fu-yin can cause death to the owner.
Note also that on the day of the tragedy, the jia-ji cannot transform because of the fighting to combine theory. So, the two jia stars countered and weaken the protruding ji earth. This weaken ji earth could not control the negative gui because of the presence of both the metal stars, geng and xin. Earth -> metal -> water. Although these metal stars are not rooted, they are still very strong because of the earth season.
This is a typical case of depression, negative fu-yins and a broken structure of a fake follower chart. Is there a cure? Can the tragedy be avoided?
Note that on the day of the sad event, there were many sets of si-wu-wei positive fire seasonal frames but unfortunately, there was not a single fire star protruding in the stems. This is where fenghsui comes into play. By means of fire activation, a good fengshui master can help to create a "spark" to release all the positive fire energies. It will then help to balance the chart. Of course, on the human part, a good counselor will be of great help.
Here comes the last and the most interesting part. From the bazi perspective, why was it so difficult for him to get a girlfriend?
His girlfriend stars are represented by the earth wealth stars. Please take a look inside all the earth stars and you will find that sitting beside all the earth stars are his negative yi stars which represent all the other boys. This means that all the girls he likes were with his competitors. Perhaps, he should have waited for the earth stars to protrude to have a better chance. Still, the negative yi in the month stem will compete with him.
My heart goes out to all the victims and their respective families. May peace be upon all involved.
