Click on chart to enlarge.

Data:  Parented by the Department of Justice, this government agency was born on July 1, 1972.

Happy 39th birthday on July 1, 2011...with a Solar Eclipse conjoined natal Sun and the Gunwalker Scandal in high gear, a congressional probe into the ATF operation named "Fast and Furious," wherein "straw purchasers" were allowed to buy guns in Arizona and ship them to Mexico, the purpose of which was to track their shipment to Mexican drug cartels.  However, the ATF lost track of the guns, subsequently found at crime scenes in Mexico (near Nogales, Arizona), where a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed.  In short, murdered by incompetents in the ATF and the Justice Department.

The chart reveals a prominent Uranus squaring the Sun, lending a tendency to shoot oneself in the foot.  Additionally, the June 1st Solar Eclipse conjoined natal Saturn may have had a tad to do with the disgrace of this government agency...Saturn rules responsibility and karma: as in Ruby Ridge and Waco.

Ruby Ridge, Idaho:  On August 21, 1992, ATF agents attacked the Weaver family, killing their dog and one son, followed the next day by the murder of Vicki Weaver as she held her 10-month old child.  Transiting Jupiter in Virgo square natal Venus = excessive emotionalism on the part of the ATF...transiting Uranus square natal Uranus in Libra = erratic behavior disguised as justice.

Waco, Texas:  In 1995, Rep. John Dingell of Michigan described the ATF as "jackbooted American fascists." 

On February 28, 1993, the ATF conducted a raid on the Branch Davidians in National Guard helicopters with guns blazing.  Thereafter the FBI and US Army took over, conducting the massacre that murdered dozens of men, women and children on April 19, 1993.

The transits on February 28, 1993:  Transiting Jupiter conjoined natal Uranus = failure to live up to responsibilities.  Transiting Mars conjoined natal Sun = ego run amok.

What the United States suffers is a government that has failed to exercise oversight and demand accountability from the agencies under its control.  The Department of Justice has disgraced itself yet again, meanwhile attempting to lay blame on the agency it neglected to monitor.  Scapegoat, anyone?
