Remembering Heather

Heather Heyer was killed in Charlottesville while protesting the presence of White Supremacists in her town. The nature of her death is upsetting to anyone with a social conscience.

This young woman lost her life when a driver rammed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters of the Saturday, August 13th – Unite the Right Rally. At least 19 others were injured by this act, with five of them initially in critical condition. The perpetrator of this crime, James Fields, was a White Supremacist. He had marched in the torch-light parade the night before wearing a uniform and carrying a shield. The perpetrator remains in custody waiting for a hearing while Heather was buried by her community. The shock of her meaningless death reverberates through the hearts of our nation and the world. We have the right to protest but not to kill.

Heather Heyer

Heather Heyer was born on a Wednesday in Gemini. Since Mercury is the ruler of both her Day Ray and Sun Sign, she is considered to be doubly ruled by Mercury. This means that her INNER and OUTER selves reflect the same alertness, intelligence and conscience. People with double rulerships are usually strong enthusiasts of one sort or another. This young woman was avidly developing her skills as a communicator and activist.

Heather had no problem recognizing and addressing injustices. She worked as a paralegal for a legal firm in their bankruptcy division. Her supervisor, Alfred A. Wilson, said that he hired her because she had a eye for details and was good with people. Her only work experience before that was as a bartender and a waitress. More importantly Heather had a high school diploma and was willing to learn about the law.  Heather’s mother stated, “She always had a very strong sense of right and wrong. She was always, even as a child, very caught up in what she believed to be fair.”  Heather’s last Facebook post was “If you’re not outraged you’re not paying attention.
