  • Mercury: Tori Johnson, aged 34, the young man who was the owner of the Lindt Café is shown by Mercury who conjoins the 10th lord Venus

The Terrorist

The terrorist(s) are seen from the 7th bhāva which is Cancer with retrograde Jupiter indicating the terrorist as a cleric. Retrograde exalted Jupiter gives results of being in debility showing a fallen cleric or an imposter. The 7th lord Moon in Virgo conjoining Rāhu in maraṇa kāraka sthāna shows that the terrorist will also get killed.

This happened around 2:20 AM on Tuesday (16 Dec, 2014) when Virgo was rising with Moon and Rāhu showing the unfolding of the siege-chart. Police officially confirm end of siege at 2:48 AM.

Background
man-haron-monis0The terrorist was a self-styled sheikh Man Haron Monis, was formerly Manteghi Boroujerdi an Iranian refugee. A former self-styled Shia cleric living in southwest Sydney, he was 50 years old and had been living in Australia since 1996. He had recently converted to Sunni Islam and had posted “I used to be a Rafidi, but not anymore. Now I am a Muslim, Alhamdu Lillah” on his website earlier this month. Monis, along with his current partner Amirah Droudis, had been arrested and charged as an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife Noleen Hayson Pal, in 2013. Noleen was stabbed and set on fire on the staircase of her apartment in Sydney but both Haron and Amirah were released on bail after the case was deemed ‘weak’ by magistrates.

Offensive Mail
man-haron-monis1Haron and Amirah gained notoriety in Australia after sending numerous offensive letters to the grieving families of Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan within days of their deaths between 2007 and 2009. Although he pleaded guilty to 12 charges relating to the malicious letters after a four-year legal battle, he was unrepentant.
