We were not privy to the time of this recording and so we were stymied somewhat in our endeavours to have an event time to work with – i.e. undertake a forensic astrology enquiry. Stymied, that is, until we were lucky enough to get a birth time for the child.
Part 1 of our enquiry looked into the possibility of events on 1st March for Relisha, her immediate family and also Kahlil Tatum. We were able to interpret the birth horoscope of the child, as well as synastry charts with firstly, Relisha and her mother, plus Relisha and her mother’s current partner, before entering into a study of the synastry between Relisha and her ‘godfather’.
- Relisha Tenau Rudd (missing girl) – DOB 1:18pm 29 October 2005
- Shamika Young (mother) – DOB 6 May 1986
- Antonio Wheeler (mother’s partner) – DOB 21 November 1986
- Kahlil Malik Tatum (POI) – DOB 6 February 1963
Kahlil Tatum committed suicide before we came into the case to make our enquiry. We learned that it was taken for granted, understandably so, that Tatum had killed Relisha and had not told anyone where her remains could be found. By the end of Part 1 of our enquiry, I was not so sure that was the case and so I continued to enquire further of the heavens.
This is what we have learned…
We left behind the date of 1st March 2014 as our primary event and focused on whom might have an emotive reaction to the Amber Alert being released by law enforcement at 8:01am, 20th March 2014. (Hooray, we finally got an official event time to work with!!)
This amber alert was not sent out until almost three weeks after the child was last seen – i.e. 1st March > 20th March 2014. Relisha had not been reported missing by her family, but they had another agenda (see Part 1).
We asked ourselves, “Whom might give us an emotive reaction to the police and FBI joining the search for Relisha. I.e. whom would not want to be under the microscope?”
My thought processes went like this – the gun that Kahlil Tatum used to kill his wife and then himself (if it was purchased illegally) would likely be obtained by someone whom had connections to acquire such items; persons with a criminal record. So we started poking around the family archives. It didn’t have to look too far from the tree – there is no shortfall of possible POI’s within the extended Tatum family.
If Kahlil Tatum had not killed the child as I was thinking, then he would have likely passed her on to relatives in order to keep ‘the matter’ within the family. Blood runs thicker than water. Could these people also be connected to the disappearance of Relisha Rudd?
- Rickie Sheridan Lyles (POI) – DOB July 1954
- Cindy Ilena Lyles (POI) – DOB 1 June 1968
- Ricky Carlton Lyles (POI) – DOB 10 October 1980
The Amber alert and the Lyles
We know that the first police report went out that “Kahlil Tatum was in the company of Rickie Sheridan Lyles”. This was later withdrawn by LE, however it identifies that it was R. Sheridan Lyles whom picked up Tatum at 5:40am on 20th March and the astrology confirms this.
This following triplet of charts are from the perspective of 8:01am 20th March 2014. The outer wheels are the natal horoscopes for R.Sheridan Lyles (60); R.Carlton Lyles (34); and Cindy Ilena Lyles (46). We need to see their reaction to the police coming into the missing person case. All three are known to police; court records on file.
These three appear to have likely been the trio with Kahlil and Andrea Tatum the night before at the Red Roof Inn. Andrea Tatum was shot and killed during the night, however her body was not yet discovered by police at this time of day and so the trio are supposedly not yet aware of her death.
This 8:01am clock time is the police report in relation to the disappearance of Relisha. We immediately note that the cusp of the second house (money) is at 24°Taurus exact conjunct the fixed star Algol. Warning bells are ringing immediately. Every astrologer is aware of this dangerous star and the story of Perseus and the gorgon Medusa. At the very least this is someone losing their head (Kahlil Tatum on this occasion) and at the worst a foreboding of death.
Rickie Sheridan Lyles:
This man’s rap sheet includes child abuse. We crossed two state lines on our journey; following his history with the courts. He was born in North Carolina. I’m sure the family roots are still there in Buncombe.
- natal Sun/Lunar north node = descendant (opposed to the ascendant) – he’s immediately on the back foot and very much so, due to: PLUS
- natal Mercury and Jupiter at the IC – successful planning; he was prepared for this, which indicates prior knowledge of the fact that Relisha is missing.
- tr Sun (orange in the inner wheel) square natal Mars – he was ready for this day.
- tr Uranus square natal Mercury-Jupiter – sudden inspiration to add to his ‘story’
- tr Saturn square natal Pluto – this is a dangerous forensic aspect in relation to death; I suspect he expected this missing person report to relate to the death of Andrea Tatum. This indicates prior knowledge of her death. Is Relisha dead also?
Ricky Carlton Lyles (son of Rickie Sheridan Lyles):
All his natal planets are on the RHS of the bi-wheel, likely protecting someone else. If he was involved, we are obliged to ask, “Is he providing an alibi?”
- Natal Sun (orange in the outer wheel) is at the descendant. His ego is on the back foot/protected, though not as well prepared as R.Sheridan Lyles; R. Carlton Lyles is still in his thirties.
- tr Sun (orange in the inner wheel) is the date on the calendar opposite natal Jupiter (green) – this man has likely been on tender-hooks for the last 3 days; running on adrenalin. PLUS
- tr Uranus quindecile natal Jupiter – ditto …obsessively so
- tr Neptune (the disappearance of Relisha) opposite natal Venus (pink) i.e. peer group/family – this identifies a close family connection for him involved in the disappearance. Kahlil is not an immediate family connection. Is this whom he is covering for? PLUS
- tr Mercury (yellow) is the alert for a child – is quindecile natal Lunar nodal axis – again we have a family connection; obsession and closing ranks. PLUS
- tr Venus (pink) square natal Mercury in the 7th house – ditto PLUS
- tr Saturn conjunct natal Uranus – dangerous forensic indicator; ambition and self-control is driving his speech although I would expect there to be changes in his statement to LE. This is a weak point in his chart.
- tr Moon conjunct natal Mercury – emotional perception; likely following the advice of a woman. Is this woman Cindy Lyles? I think so; particularly when we look at her chart.
Cindy Ilena Lyles (niece of Rickie Sheridan Lyles and cousin of Ricky Carlton Lyles):
This woman has Saturn at 22°Aries; duck for cover folks. We have a master controller under our lens; someone whom needs to master their self-control. She has a criminal record longer than your arm and mine combined; across three states. If she is not involved in this case of our missing 8 year-old, I’ll eat my Christmas bonnet…
- Natal Lunar nodal axis is exact the ascendant/descendant and the right way round – Cindy Lyles has a personal relationship with the person named in missing person report; Relisha. It would appear that she has the most to lose by the police being involved. Therein lies my hat.
- tr Sun (orange in the inner wheel) indicates the date on the calendar opposite Cindy’s Uranus – this has rattled her chains; likely moved her location PLUS
- midpoint of this natal Mars/Uranus = cusp of the transiting 5th house (children) – a tremendous urge to action. PLUS
- midpoint of natal Mercury (yellow)/transiting Lunar south node (karmic element) = cusp 2nd house (‘the asset’) would be moved to the 3rd house (siblings)…
Note: If Relisha is still alive, then Cindy is certainly moving her from one location to another. I would want to know Cindy’s movements on 20th March 2014; track her phone pings.
- tr Neptune (turquoise) square natal Venus (peer group – her family) – secrets in the family.
- tr Venus (peer group – police) opposite natal mid range Moon – interviewed and apparently cooperative
- tr Venus quindecile natal Jupiter (green) – ego is obsessively inflated likely connected with her statement to LE. These two aspects keep my attention. Did LE accept her statement; her alibi perhaps?
Our enquiry cannot end at this point, as we need to learn if these characters have had a connection to Relisha. The heavens will determine as to whether there have, or not. Having the child’s birth time means that we should get a good idea if they did; at least according to the astrology text books.
We also must also reiterate at this stage, that astrology is not accepted in any court of law; is a pseudo science and can only be considered as opinion.
Synastry of Relisha and the Lyles family members
The elder first; Rickie Sheridan Lyles viewed from Relisha’s perspective. His has his natal Sun (orange in the outer wheel) at the child’s descendant; cusp of the 7th house – he is definitely known to her and would be opposed to the child’s presence.
- She likely tries his patience as his natal Mars is on the cusp of her 11th house.
- Relisha’s natal Moon (blue) square this elder man’s Mars – she appeals to him to fulfill her needs, however this is not a good aspect to see when we are looking through a forensic astrology lens. PLUS
- Relisha’s natal Mercury (yellow) is her voice and that is square to his Venus (pink). As Venus is in the 7th house I would suggest this indicates that she communicated with members of his family rather than he.
- Relisha’s Mars is quindecile Rickie Lyle’s natal Saturn; his self-control. This aspect is VERY dangerous. At the least he does not want his house to be her home (4th house).
There appears to be considerable interaction between Relisha and Ricky Carlton Lyles as he has his natal Mercury at the top of Relishes chart; her mid-heaven. I would suggest that they ‘connected’ on some level.
- Relisha’s Mercury (yellow) is conjunct his natal Mars – this can indicate good rapport when we view from a benign aspect.
- His mid-range Moon (blue in the outer wheel) and her Sun (orange) are in conjunction as is his Moon and her Jupiter (green).
- His Sun is conjunct her Lunar nodal axis, which is not necessarily a good thing, as it can be traumatic.
- Relisha’s Mars in the 4th house is square Ricky Carlton’s Lunar nodal axis – another dangerous aspect.
Cindy Ilena Lyles and Relisha also had contact as we note the cusp of Relisha’s 5th house (children) is exact Cindy’s natal Venus (family). An overall feel for this interaction of tension is not one of love.
- Relisha’s Uranus square Cindy’s natal Venus (pink) reveals that Relisha’s entry into this family has created upheaval in the family dynamic.
- Cindy’s mid-range Moon (blue in the outer wheel) exact conjunct Relisha’s natal Saturn (the child’s self-control) – this is a VERY dangerous aspect in forensic astrology terms.
- Relisha’s Mercury (yellow) square Cindy’s natal Jupiter (green) – the child’s communication attempts likely aggravates this woman.
- Relisha’s Moon (her driving needs) are conjunct Cindy’s natal Uranus; another VERY dangerous aspect. They are not being consistently fulfilled by Cindy.
- Relisha’s Neptune (turquoise) opposite Cindy’s natal mid-range Moon – the child is totally bewildered.
I took a peek at the synastry chart for Cindy Ilena and Ricky Carlton Lyles and it appears that the cousins are closely inter-connected with both their lives and karma.
From an astrology standpoint:
As we have no further information of any events with clock times following the police report of this missing little girl, we are not able to come to any final conclusions in relation to the search for Relisha Tenau Rudd as to whether she is alive, or not and where she might be located.
I am certain that the FBI are on the case and we have to trust that they will find the truth.
