Thank you for your post Linda, the points you have brought up are really interesting. What/how does the archetype of Leo play into this? Could one interpret this as meaning the shootings were a part of actualising his purpose/destiny for this lifetime? As a means of bringing awareness of the trauma caused to society? (Aquarius polarity)
Your interpretation certainly would apply.
The way I was seeing it was in terms of violence/murder. During the time of the shootings Jupiter on the Ascendant (conj his Leo stellium) and opposite the Sun Aquarius 7th in the Shootings chart correlated to a sudden surge of violence resulting in 3 dead. The 1st house/Ascendant correlates to Mars-Aries: all 3 victims were shot in the head. In Hicks' noon chart, he has Chiron, North Node and Saturn in Aries in the 6th/7th houses near the Descendant which graphically describes his way of relating to others in terms of violence/aggression. These dynamics emphasize the "exact" Nodal Return in Aries/Libra and his inability to cooperate with others. The Shooting chart Moon in Scorpio was squaring his Mars/Cancer and Mercury/Leo. Black Moon Lilith was conjunct his Jupiter in Virgo, ruled by Mercury Rx in Aquarius.
Mercury was intensified as it neared the very end of its retrograde cycle in Aquarius. Mercury was important because the North Node in Libra fell in the 3rd house in the Shootings chart: the resolution to the Pluto skipped steps through peaceful communications. I see Jupiter in Leo on the Ascendant in the Shooting chart as representing energies of self-righteousness and self-inflation in terms of either religious bigotry or some kind of self-appointed vigilante of the condominium. Saturn (the law) was squaring Neptune (instability of the consciousness of the Soul).
Regarding how Leo plays into this: his chart shows 3 personal Leo planets in the 10th house, appointing himself as the authority, and Saturn/Aries at the tip of a Yod (crisis) with Neptune and Uranus (the collective). Pluto in Capricorn (societal laws, rules and regulations), however, is the ultimate authority, squaring the Nodes in both charts, skipped steps, and resolving in BOTH charts through the LIBRA archetype.
The South Node of Lucifer @ 17 Leo 38 - the totality of evil - was exactly conjunct Jupiter Leo Rx (conj Ascendant) in the Shooting chart. The North Node of Lucifer @ 19 Aquarius 37 was conjunct the transiting Sun 21 Aquarius 51 in the 7th house (trine Lucifer 20 Gemini 52 Rx).

Investigators searched Hicks' home and seized two fully loaded handguns, a fully loaded AR-15 Bushmaster rifle, two shotguns, five other rifles, two other handguns and two pellet guns. They also seized numerous magazines with varying amounts of ammunition, boxes of ammunition, shotgun shells, BBs, gun scopes and other gun-related items, according to a warrant.
