South African athlete Oscar Pistorius, also known as the "Blade Runner", was the first amputee sprinter to compete in the able-bodied category of the 2012 London Olympic Games. As aforementioned he was arrested after the shooting of his girl friend Reeva Steenkamp, at his house on 14th February 2013.

Oscar Pistorius has a Capricorn Ascendant and the Lord of Ascendant, Saturn is placed with Sun in Scorpio. This combination indicates a "Karmic debt" and completion of some kind of cycle of karma of previous birth. It also indicates impulsive and masculine tendencies. The Sun-Mars square in his chart points towards tremendous aggressive energy that requires a safe release.

A strong Moon in the 7th House in a Water Sign suggests intense emotions, deep rooted feelings and challenges in relationship with others. The retrograde Venus placed with the retrograde Mercury in Swati Nakshatra makes his personal life very complicated. Fears of rejection and struggle to control the unknown stress might have dominated his thought process throughout his life. With transiting Saturn and Rahu moving over the Natal Venus and Mercury, his relationship with Reeva would not have been very pleasant over the past few months. Some fear, obsession and anxiety may have been disrupting his internal peace and harmony.

At the time of this horrible incident, Mercury-Saturn-Rahu period was in force. The 6th House Lord, Mercury is placed with the 5th House Lord, Venus. Saturn is placed with Sun and he is about to complete the Mercury Mahadasha. So, the Dasha Sandhi will have a marked impact on his life. This tragic story may have many interesting psychological dimensions which will surface as the trial unfolds. No doubt that the Dasha Sandhi and the transiting Saturn-Rahu in Libra will make him suffer for his reckless and impulsive action. However, the transiting Jupiter may act as a safety net for him. But one thing is sure that he may not come out unscathed in this case. On the other hand, he may escape a life sentence. Still, he is liable to face some financial penalty and a short jail term.
