Jennifer Farber Dulos Pt.1

Born under a transiting pattern in the heavens, a planetary spread becomes a personal version of reality; our norm in behavioural terms.  A norm, which matures through modeling our behaviour on those around us; by the nurturing in childhood, and life experience.  This belief system of astrology is the backdrop for interpretation in this case of what is sure to be declared, a homicide.

The basics needed to generate astrology charts are available. A reliable clock-time is to hand (Missing Person Report extracted from court documents), so we can ‘stop the clock’ and explore the pattern in the heavens at a specific location and identify potential tension that will reveal this crime.
The second set of available information; the birth data for missing person.victim as well as that of the persons of interest are also available; albeit without birth times.

We have our basics to view individual ‘versions of reality’ through the lens of a particular point in time/MPR time, which then become our point of interest; a crime chart…

Location: New Canaan, Connecticut
Missing person/Victim: Jennifer Dulos
POI: Fotis Dulos and Michelle Troconis
MPR: 6:59pm 24 May 2019

Jennifer and Fotis Dulos were separated; in the midst of an acrimonious divorce; custody of children with the mother and shared access. Michelle Troconis has been domiciled with Fotis Dulos since the marriage partners separation in 2017.

Power, sex and money are the usual motives – desires not being met escalate to the point of no return – a victim goes missing of their own accord, or murder is seen as the resolution ‘according to the belief system of a perpetrator’.

This leads us to explore relationship astrology by generating synastry charts; two birth charts aligned by the zodiac and yet retained as individual horoscopes.

[ FYI – Saturn Rx phenomenonQuindecile aspect ]

SYNASTRY: Fotis Dulos & Jennifer Farber Dulos

In synastry terms, a heavenly marriage is traditionally indicated by a connection with the Lunar Nodal Axis. The astrology between Folis Dulos and Jennifer Farber Dulos is such a synastry. The primary tensions are as indicated. Note that the tension works in both directions to create a framework of interaction of behaviour.

  • Husband’s South Node (outcome of a union) conjunct his wife’s Venus (money).
  • Husband’s Mars (actions) quindecile (obsession) his wife’s Saturn Rx (childhood lack of male mentoring leads to self-control weaknesses)
  • Husband’s Uranus (instability) conjunct wife’s stellium of planets in Virgo-Libra and Pluto in particular.

With just these basics, a consulting astrologer would not have recommended that this union-by-marriage take place. However the heavens will always have their way.

SYNASTRY: Fotis Dulos & Michelle Troconis

Indicator for a match made in heaven, albeit at-odds with socially-accepted norms for a heavenly match.  Lunar Nodal axis is in direct tension within this synastry chart – star crossed lovers.

  • Male Saturn Rx (childhood lack of male mentoring – leads to self-control weaknesses) quindecile lover’s Mercury-Uranus (tendency to be impulsive). This tension would normally generate a ‘calming of the waters’ by male.
  • Male Mercury square lover’s Mercury-Uranus impulsive actions – provocative inspiration.
  • Male Mercury (communication) quindecile lover’s mid-range Moon (personal needs) fulfils her personal desires
  • Male Uranus conjunct lover’s Venus – note the connection between husband and wife (chart above) at this same point in the heavens – 22°Virgo.
  • Male Sun-Jupiter-Moon (inflated neediness drive) opposite lover’s Moon generates a happy relationship.
  • Male Venus square lover’s LNA – the pairing is likely at odds by lover’s family. This can also indicate a manipulative control move by male by isolating his lover from her family.

With just these basics, a consulting astrologer would likely describe the future of this relationship as based on a co-dependency of needs and desires.

The crime according to the heavens

Most asteroids used in this blog are drawn from Greco/Roman mythology symbolism. The asteroid Narcissus = excessive self-interest; Ixion = murder; Alekto = intense rage etc. Apart from the regular toolkit, I’ve added namesake asteroids of Jennifer #6249 and Michelle #1376.

Missing Person Report; the planetary spread of tension across the heavens – a snapshot in time and place.

The angles traditionally take precedence in all interpretation of any chart, so we interpret from the primary locus; the ascendant; 19:46Scorpio.

  • Tension radiates from the locus by quindecile to the planet Uranus in the 6th house – unstable obsession by a cooperative effort.
  • Ascendant is also quincunx (disregard for result of actions eminating from this locus) with asteroid Michelle in the 7th house at 18Gemini – this identifies Michelle Troconis as most likely being party to this crime.
    • These two aspects of tension (the quincunx and quindecile) create a midpoint; a tug of war between asteroid Michelle and Uranus in the heavens with the midpoint/focus being asteroid Alekto 26°Taurus. [Michelle + Uranus = intense rage] .
      • This point in the heavens (26°Taurus) is also the location of the fixed star Algol – aka the devil star; the gorgon, Medusa.  Commonly referred to as a pile of corpses.

Motivation – astrology houses under scrutiny; realms that contain behavioural tension of note.

  • House 2 = my money/assets and value of self; sense of worthiness. There is a stellium in Sagittarius (respect) and Capricorn (control):
    • Jupiter 21°Sagittarius – inflated desire/respect for my money is quindecile 5°Cancer Mars in the 8th house (transform of a situation by endings). (Also note house 7 below) Motivation is based on the desire to increase personal wealth by taking action.
    • Ixion 28°Sagittarius – murderous desire/respect for my money opposite (reflected in the mirror) by asteroid Narcissus in the 8th house (transform the situation by endings). Motivation is excessive self interest desire being transformed by murder.
    • Pholus 2°Capricorn – shooting oneself in the foot/making mistakes by quindecile (obsessive behaviour) Juno 6°Cancer (spouse). Expose of mistakes – who and what is not identified as yet, although the arena is of personal assets (note this may well refer to vehicles/phones).
    • South Node-Saturn Rx 20°Capricorn – traumatic release of self-control quindecile (obsessive behaviour) with Mars at 5°Cancer in the 8th house. This is the malefic indication of the crime and motivation – greed.
  • House 6 = cooperative effort is a house with a cusp of Taurus (money/assets):
    • Uranus (instability/movement) at 4°Taurus (already under tension with the ascendant) is generating tension by quindecile (obsession) with asteroid Money Rx in the 11th house. The instability/relocation of children has become an obsessive desire by a cooperative effort. This could relate to the cooperative effort of custody agreement of parents, or something more sinister as in relocation of the ‘assets’ (children) by the father and his lover).
    • Venus at 11°Taurus is quincunx (disregard for one’s actions) asteroid Pallas Rx-Child Rx in the 11th house.  This likely equates to the disregard for the court ruling as to custody/access.
      • Note that House 11 contains retrograde planets, so they relate directly back to the 5th house (children in custody dispute). I leave this for others to interpret at this stage of our enquiry.
  • House 7 = spousal/life partner relationships (this includes each of the female relationships with Fotis Dulos).
    • Alekto 26°Taurus is already interpreted above (a pile of corpses in a state of rage)
    • Sun 3°Gemini is symbolic of the date on the calendar – square Black Moon Lilith/Mean Apogee (weakest link in the chart) at 2°Pisces. The timing for this crime is working against both victim and perpetrator. A sense of urgency overruled caution in planning, perhaps.
    • Mercury and asteroid Jennifer are exact at 7°Gemini.  This point is also quindecile Jupiter in the 2nd house. Mercury is the planet for communication which is usually a verbal communication, however a weapon can also become a method of communication, as can a pair of hands if they are used for strangulation (cutting off the means to communicate/breathe).
    • Mercury-Jennifer is also mirroring Ceres Rx in the 1st house (personal appetite restricted). When Ceres is in Sagittarius and is retrograde, this inhibits the nurturing desire. This could well be interpreted as that Jennifer’s desire to communicate peacefully was denied her. Other than that, I do not know the answer to this aspect – the answer lies with the victim and details as per the investigation.
  • House 8 = transformation of situations by ending. Apart from the tension already addressed in relation to the tension apart from Mars at 5°Cancer as being square (off-sided) with asteroid Chiron at 5°Aries. When Chiron is in Aries this identifies the need to take responsibility for one’s actions.
  • House 9: Arabian Part Fortuna (destiny) is at 0:53°Leo in the 9th house of hopes and wishes. The tension with this mathematical point is a quindecile with the Moon 14:36°Aquarius in the 3rd house (communication). Our hopes and wishes are that the matter be resolved by a means of communication, be it a plea deal, or confession.

It appears that as the investigation unfolds, the perpetrators are being made to take responsibility for their actions.  Both Fotis Dulos and Michelle Troconis are currently in-limbo; enough to hold them from flight, with charges that will become more serious as the investigation continues.

A continuation Part 2...

Delphi murders Pt.1

Part 1; the synastry…

Relationship astrology is more the realm of romantic encounters, however this case brought us the added advantage of birth times of the victims; an opportunity to view the incident chart from the perspective of each of the victims. The methodology of interpretation is similar, however our focus is on the potential weakness of the characters, rather than potential joys.

Astrology is a pseudo-scientific method of interpretation of human behaviour by interpretation of tension in planetary positions against the backdrop of the astrological zodiac. As such it is not accepted in any court of law.

Case data:
Delphi, Indiana
13 February 2017
Snapchat photo upload 2:07 pm
Missing Person Report (MPR) 5:30pm
Libby German DOB 27 December 2002
Abby Williams DOB 23 June 2003

With the sleuthing support of our Facebook group, I have checked scores of potential culprits’ birth charts in this crime. This is my pick of the lot to date; the likely killer of these teenage girls in Delphi, Indiana. His name is Gabe Ellis – ex Lafayette and Kokomo, Indiana.

At the time of the Delphi murders, Gabe Ellis was living just 30 minutes away in Kokomo. He was 40 years old. Abby and Libby were just 13 and 14.

The asteroids for this enquiry have been selected with the knowledge of Gabe Ellis’ special interests in child pornography, meth amphetamines, and the company of teenage girls. Gabe Ellis is currently incarcerated in a high security facility in Indiana for unrelated crimes.

Abby #31631 – victim Abby Williams
Dejanera #157 – Sexual assault/rape
Dunke #6865 – drug of choice/meth amphetamine
Gabe #21701 – POI, Gabe Ellis
Libby#5672 – victim Libby German
Photographica #443 – images
Prey #6157 – predatory behaviour
Ragazza #1839 – young girl
Roach #5945 – predatory behaviour

Our posts have usually started with the crime, however the apparent incredible synastry between the birth dates, leads me to open with the potential of inter-personal tension.

Intensity of ‘triggers’ of behaviour start with the angles of any chart. The vertical axis of arena of tension; the Midheaven (the where) together with the mirror of the IC, plus the horizon of Ascendant (the when) together with its mirror, the Descendant.

The malefic planets – Mars,Saturn,Pluto.

Libby German and Gabe Ellis
Having the time of birth for Libby we can view the tension from her perspective; guided by classic texts. The inner chart in blue text is Libby; red, Gabe Ellis.

  • At the IC and mirroring the Midheaven 24:47°Gemini; Saturn is conjunct conjunct his asteroid Ragazza
  • 24:47°Gemini Saturn also mirrors by opposition, his Venus at the midheaven
  • 1:05°Pisces asteroid Libby conjunct his asteroid Libby-Photo
  • 17:14°Leo Jupiter-Dunke conjunct his Saturn
    • This is the major malefic aspect of interaction – is also square to Libby’s Mars; i.e. resistance
  • 14:47°Libra Moon-Roach conjunct his Pluto
  • At the cusp of the 8th house of ‘transformation by endings’, 9:09°Scorpio Juno conjunct his Uranus-Ixion-Roach stellium of instability
  • 16:48°Scorpio Mars conjunct his Sun-Mercury – ego-driven communication
  • 19:44°Scorpio Venus-Pholus conjunct Mars-Dejanera
  • 18:07°Sagittarius Pluto merges with his asteroid Dunke in the 9th house of illusory belief
  • Asteroid Ragazza conjunct his asteroid Dunke-Abby-Pluto

Abby Williams and Gabe Ellis

Another time of birth; another synastry between victim and alleged perpetrator. This tension may not be indicative at the angles, however the connection is primarily driven from the ‘idealisation’ weakness of Mercury-Venus conjunction in Abby’s 11th house/need for friends. This position is intercepted by her own asteroid Pholus (shooting herself in the foot), plus is quincunx/’disregard for’ Gabe Ellis’ Sun-Mercury; getting what he wants.

  • Jupiter 16°Leo is exact his Saturn
  • Jupiter 16°Leo square his Sun-Mercury; what he wants would be inflated by any resistance from Abby.
  • Mercury-Venus 16°Gemini quincunx his Sun-Mercury – a major weaknesses
  • Pluto-asteroid Gabe 17°Sagitarrius not only mirrors her own idealism weakness, but also is conjunct his asteroid Abby-Dunke
  • 2:43°Pisces Mars-Uranus (rebellious behavour) is conjunct his natal asteroids Libby and Photographica.
  • 10-12°Taurus natal Photographica and Arabian Part Fortuna align with his natal Black Moon Lilith (weakest link in a chart).
    • note: photograph of male on the trail released to the media, plus FBI sketch of POI (images above).

All astrology indications are that meth amphetamine is on the table, perhaps as his method of seduction remove the girls ‘down the hill’ and to their demise. Toxicology of the girl’s remains would either confirm, or deny this suggestion. The autopsy has not been released to-date.

We are not aware of the birth time for Gabe Ellis and so his mid-range Moon at 23:25°Taurus could be up to 6degrees either side of its position in his natal chart and possibly conjunct the gorgon star; Algol – a pile of corpses..

  • Further tension in relation to his driving personal needs (natal Moon), could be…
    • Conjunct Abby’s asteroid Prey, Libby, or BML
    • Mirroring the Scorpio stellium in Libby’s natal chart

2:07 pm on 13th February 2017
Libby took a photo of her friend Abby with her cellphone and uploaded it to snapchat. We have a time in which to explore the tension in the atmosphere, while these girls were together on the abandoned rail bridge over Deer Creek.

  • Asteroid Abby 20:58°Aries is conjunct Uranus in the heavens, potentially instigating sudden changes (Cardinal-Fire).
  • Asteroid Libby meanwhile, is transiting at 19:25°Capricorn indicating some discord in their planned afternoon together. According to the asteroid positions, Libby is the more-practical of the two on this occasion

It is when we indicate this particular tension in the heavens with the hard aspects between the planetary and asteroid positions overhead, that we can begin to understand and interpret the combination.

  • Asteroid Ragazza is at the horizon mirroring the ascendant; Abby ‘in the frame’ literally.

Underlying locked-in emotive position; a Grand Trine in the element of Water (red triangle).
The red triangle between Chiron 22°Pisces (one ‘deadly’ drama after another) in the 10th house of the public arena – together with Vesta 21:55°Cancer in the 1st house (physicality of a hidden agenda) and the mathematical position of Vertex (significant life-changing event) at 23:20°Scorpio in the 5th house (house of fun/creativity/entertainment).

Black rectangle of the tension resulting from Libby-Abby (asteroids) interaction together with the outlet for that tension (Vesta)

Uranus-Eris-Abby with asteroids Prey-Libby and the third leg being Jupiter 23:03°Libra in the 5th house.
This then becomes at risk (prey) when mirrored with Vesta. It is a choice as to whether they follow this outlet, although there is no other available to them according to this chart.
Vesta is the midpoint of Dejaniera (sexual assault) 20:58°Gemini in the 12th house of the mind (a mental concern/unspoken perhaps) and asteroid Dunke (drug flag) at 20:09°Leo in the 3rd house of communication/short journeys.

Asteroid Gabe is in the 5th house 9:11°Scorpio square Mercury-AP Fortuna 9:10°Aquarius.

Destiny with Gabe Ellis awaits.

Subjective Note: Vesta will cross the horizon and into view at the Ascendant at 3:25pm (timing).  That would be the most critical time for these young teens, I would expect.

To be continued with Pt.2; the crime.

Lucas Hernandez

Emily Glass was in a relationship with Jonathan Hernandez and was sole carer for his son Lucas when the child’s father was working away from home for extended periods of time.   She phoned law enforcement, reporting Lucas missing from home.  Note: Emily Glass is an admitted smoker/user of meth-amphetamine.

  • Location: Wichita, Kansas
  • MPR: 6:14pm 17th February 2018
  • Victim: Lucas Hernandez. DOB 3rd December 2012
  • POI: Emily Glass DOB 10th May 1991

This is a case from our Facebook group, where we generated, interpreted and drew up a locator angle in real-time following the Missing Person Report.

Asteroids used during this case:

Borasissi #66652 – lies we tell ourselves in order to maintain the illusion that we’re happy
Child#4580 – child
Dunke #6865 – drug flag
Emily #33399 – Emily Glass
Eris#136199 – creating trouble/argumentative
Ixion#28978 – murder flag (occidental mythology)
Lie #26955 – Lie
Lucas #9349 – Lucas Hernandez
Martir #1582 – martyrdom
Nessus #7066 – abuse of trust

Arabian Part Fortuna – destiny
BML/Mean Apogee – weakest link in any chart
Vertex – significant life-changing event

It was only when I learned that there had been a personal call by Emily Glass the previous afternoon to Lucas’ disappearance; some 24hours earlier, that I was on ‘Amber Alert’ with the astrology. What caught my attention was the comment ’24hours earlier’.

The misconception that an MPR cannot be filed for 24hours remains in people’s belief system. Even though this was not the story that Emily Glass relayed to law enforcement when she reported Lucas Hernandez missing, I elected to generate a chart for the recorded phone call as likely being significant in this case.  It was…

5:43pm 16 February 2018 – phone call

click on charts for full size

The astrology pattern in this incident chart is indicative of Emily Glass having decided the fate of Lucas Hernandez during this phone call. Furthermore that the conversation likely included discussion in relation to the financial costs/burden of her current state of affairs. Was the unspoken decision by Emily Glass whether she was to feed Lucas, or buy drugs?  The seeds of suspicion were planted.

Asteroid Ceres in the 12th house (mental/hidden matters) is dominant in this case; transiting at 7:54°Leo quindecile Pluto in the 5th house (children).
Asteroid Lucas is at the cusp of the 3rd house (communication).
Mercury is conjunct 27°Aquarius,
Juno (spouse) in the 7th house.

We all know the mythical story of Ceres – how her daughter was stolen away by Pluto to live in the Underworld. Her search brought a feast, or a famine to humankind. How the asteroid Ceres manifests in an astrology chart is usually identified by the zodiac position at a particular point in time – natal and/or the incident.

Note: Lucas Hernandez’ natal mid-range Moon is also at 8Leo exact by transiting Ceres.

  • Asteroids Lie and Borasissi are strong indicators in this chart as well.
  • 1st house (physical needs) AP Fortuna (destiny) is quindecile (obsessive) to 8th house Borasissi.
  • Asteroid Lie is conjunct asteroid Dunke (drug flag) in the 4th house (home) under direct tension with the transiting Moon at 10°Pisces in the 7th house. This suggests that Emily Glass is denying her drug use during this phone conversation.
  • 11°Capricorn Vertex (a significant life-changing event) is conjunct BML/Mean Apogee in the 5th house (children versus entertainment). The BML identifies the weakest link in a chart.
    Venus is conjunct Nessus in the zodiac sign of Pisces = abuse of trust by a female.

From this interpretation, we can already see trouble ahead for Lucas…
Asteroid Lucas (Lucas Hernandez) is at the cusp of the 3rd house) = likely to be at risk in the care of a female (Emily Glass) and that his fate would be determined long before any 911 call to report that he was missing.

However, we return to the authoritative time; the Missing Person Report (MPR) together with the natal chart for Lucas Hernandez. That is the crime chart that we regularly work with as it is objective; as recorded by law enforcement.

6:14pm 17 February 2018 – MPR

Note: Emily Glass made this phone call to law enforcement.

  • At 6°Leo, AP Fortuna (destiny) is now conjunct Ceres and therefore also conjunct Lucas’ natal mid-range Moon – all now in the 12th house (hidden). What was discussed in the phone call of the previous evening is now in the mind, as the wheel turns.
  • Mercury is at the descendant at the going down with the Sun – 29°Aquarius (Mercury is one of the child indicators)
  • Neptune in the 7th house at 13°Pisces is quincunx North Node; quincunx asteroid Lucas 14°Libra and square Lie-Dunke-Mars-Vesta 11-12-13-15°Sagittarius. The quincunx reveals disregard for the child’s welfare; that drugs have been involved in this lie that the child is missing, plus that he has been hidden (Vesta).

MPR together with the natal chart for Lucas Hernandez – a biwheel

The all important angles give us the child’s natal Lunar Nodal Axis (LNA) at the MC/IC axis indicating the trauma.

Transiting Lunar Nodal axis is exact square Lucas’ natal Venus-asteroid Emily.  That’s the child pointing the finger well and truly at Emily Glass, imo.

  • AP Fortuna (destiny)-Ceres in the heavens is conjunct mid-range Moon in 12th house of Leo.
  • Natal Neptune at the descendant is usually an indication that he would not be located quickly (Neptune=hidden and descendant=exit).
  • Transiting Neptune is conjunct natal Borasissi – toxicology will confirm if this drug flag is indeed part of the child’s demise; ie administered by the adult.
  • Transiting Lie-Dunke-Mars-Vesta are all conjunct natal Sun – malefic tension.
    Meanwhile, In the mirror, transiting Child is conjunct natal Black Moon Lilith-Jupiter, however not being autonomous, the child had no choice in the matter.

MPR together with the natal chart for Emily Glass – a biwheel

  • Transiting Ceres-AP Fortuna conjunct natal Jupiter inflating her behaviour PLUS
    Mirroring natal Saturn.

We don’t lose sight of the fact that Lucas’ natal Moon is in the mirror for this Saturn placement in Emily Glass’ natal/horoscope = lack of self-control is evident to Lucas’ needs both personal and physiological.

  • Transiting Sun-Mercury at the descendant is conjunct asteroid Lucas in Glass’ natal chart.
  • The 6th house contains the placement of the South Node in the heavens conjunct natal Borasissi – lies she tells herself deflect any responsibility.
  • Transiting Pluto-Vertex (significant life-changing event) conjunct natal North Node = traumatic
  • Personal BML/Mean Apogee at the cusp of the 5th house (children) identify her weakest link.
  • Transiting asteroid Emily is conjunct natal Sun (ego’s wants, rather than needs).
  • Transiting Eris and Uranus in the 9th house are conjunct natal Mercury-Emily-Child-Martir-Eris -the grouping speaks for itself for the superficiality of behaviour.
  • Transiting Moon-Borasissi conjunct natal Dunke – use of drugs to maintain denial of actions.

Natal chart for Emily Glass

  • 22-23°Ceres in the heavens is conjunct mid-range Moon in 12th house of Leo.Aries; Asteroid Emily-Mercury quincunx 24°Scorpio Ixion – disregard for any conscience with murderous intent. Any tears will be for self, not any victim.
  • Asteroid Emily-Mercury is also opposite natal Ceres 22°Libra = naturally depressive and exhibiting negative communication.
  • 18-19°Aries Martir -Child quincunx Pluto – disregard for control of outbursts; believing that she is a martyr and powerless to change her situation. Further abrogation of any responsibility for her actions.
  • 20-21°Cancer; Mars-South Node indicate Emily Glass’ emotional wounding with her own maternal nurturer as likely being unresolved. This tension together with the conjunction of 22°Cancer; Chiron, generates a deeply held behavioural response driven by insecurity.  22 degrees of anything is a social challenge /opportunity to master (in this case all that the zodiac of Cancer means for Emily Glass).

Following the disappearance of Lucas, Emily Glass was incarcerated for child endangerment in relation to another child and it was to be some months before she was released; in a position to lead authorities, whether willingly or not, to Lucas’ remains.

Lucas Hernandez’ remains were recovered 24May 2018.

postscript:  Emily G;lass committed suicide on the night of 7-8 June 2018

David Lee Lykken

As if a sentence of 225 years wasn’t enough, a rather enterprising felon by the name of Aloysius Black Crow succeeded in putting David Lee Lykken in the frame for a double-murder, which as it turned out, was not a murder at all

Fortunately all was revealed prior to trial, and in due course the case of the missing girls – Pam Jackson and Cheryl Miller was solved when their bodies were recovered still in their vehicle; death by misadventure.

David Lee Lykken was no innocent victim, however. Born on 24th July 1954, he remains of interest to us in terms of an astrology enquiry.

Apart from obvious sociopathic tendencies in relation to male-female relationships as a teenager, Lykken’s first victim (of those known to us) in 1962, was his wife. It had been a marriage that lasted a total of four months. According to the public record, he would rape his wife repeatedly as well as strangle her to a point of unconsciousness, or as his alternative; threaten to kill her son, from a previous relationship, if she didn’t listen to him.

The second of our victims was working as a waitress in a café when she met Lykken. When interviewed some years later, she said that he had physically and sexually abused her when she tried to end the relationship.

Lykken kidnapped his third victim, driving her to a rural area in Clay County and raping her. The two had dated for about three months prior to this incident. Shortly after, he had broken into her son’s apartment where she had retreated to and raped her, yet again. Lykken plea was guilty to burglary and he was placed in a court-ordered program for rehabilitation.

A fourth victim met Lykken at a ‘Singles’ Christian conference in 1986. He’d tried to start a relationship with this victim, however she rejected him following his repeated unsociable behaviour. His ’bizarre’ behaviour resulted in a court order to relocate to Colorado for rehab. He absconded from the program and returned to South Dakota.  When Lykken returned to victim #4’s residence; ‘ranting and raving’ about how God had told him that she loved him, Lykken raped her and threatened to kill her children if she reported him.

Before we get to the case that put him away for 225 years, we can note that Lykken is already revealing a pattern of predictable behaviour; identifiable red flags for us astrology profilers… He appears to be a sociopath by nature – lacking empathy; his behaviour has developed into psychopathy, harboring a total absence of self-control and a serial rapist.

Astrology note: For those who are interested in rectifying birth charts, David Lee Lykken is bound to have a ‘loaded’ southern hemisphere in his natal chart, revealing unfinished business in his early childhood – i.e. when the anti-social behaviour began to take root. The transits on his 10tth birthday reveal much in this regard.

His natal chart, reveals a particular pattern of interest – with the gift of hindsight. Apart from the obvious quincunx of Mars-mid-range Moon-Neptune-Uranus madness…

  • Jupiter at 13°Cancer conjunct Lunar South Node and square the asteroid Ceres at 13°Libra reveals an unnerving relationship with his mother; a nature and nurture collision.

This observation of a potential anomaly leads us to check the other major asteroid placements for ‘the ladies’ in the heavens on the date of his birth.

  • The planet Venus and asteroid Juno are conjunct at 13°Virgo, working intrinsically (trine) with this Jupiter-South Node collision.
  • Ceres also has two asteroid companions of note at 13-14°Libra:
    • Aphrodite #1388 – Greek mythological character ‘woman personified’ (Venus in Latin)
    • Persephone #399 – daughter of Demeter (aka Ceres) who was kidnapped by Pluto. This myth is very much related to seasons, sessions etc.

Worthy of note – Juno has a particular role in our societal values – both in mythology (aka Hera in Greek) as the ‘ideal’ of a wife (married to Zeus-Jupiter)  and sotransposes into modern societal sexual liberation times – ‘ideal”partner.  I.e. with ‘ideal’ being in the eye of the beholder.

In astrology interpretation, we romantically toss about the symbolism of Juno as being a potential marriage partner in synastry/relationship charts and oftentimes the interpretation of a ‘male’ in forensic astrology. I tend to ignore the latter as superficial. Tightening the rein, we really need to interpret Juno as the weaknesses in inter-relationships of as in this case; males and females – within a patriarchal system. Juno very much is an indication of possessiveness and jealousy in these relationships.

So with all these cosmic ladies watching, we can address the final crime thanks to court documents being on the public record.

At 1:15am on Tuesday 10th July 1990, David Lee Lykken crossed the moral line for the last time.


  • Transiting Mars is at the ascendant; Neptune immediately overhead – time and place determined
  • Saturn Rx mirrors Jupiter-Persephone – brutish behaviour to be expected
  • Moon square Pluto and quincunx the IC/cusp of the 4th house – boundaries are ‘selectively’ compromised. This is the danger of a quincunx – ie. compartmentalisation of knowingly immoral behaviour in order to absolve moral responsibility.
  • Juno mirrors the Fates/Moirae in the 1st house as well as being square her sister Ceres. Therefore the Lunar nodes 5-11 house axis cannot be ignored – ‘casual appetites’ creating trauma.


When we put these two charts together and view from the perspective of the timed incident, a bi-wheel reveals the direct tension.


  • Transiting Mars mirrors natal Saturn-Mean apogee/ Black Moon Lilith – revealing his weakness of self-control
  • Transiting Neptune is conjunct North Node and mirrors his Jupiter/South Node damage (see natal comment) at the cusp of the 4th house.
  • Transiting Moon quincunx natal South Node-Jupiter (see natal comment above in relation to this aspect)
  • Transiting Moon quincunx with natal Venus-Juno (see natal comment)
  • Transiting Jupiter-Persephone is also quincunx natal Mars in the 9th house – Persephone myth is fantasised.

There is more of course, however this suffices for our exercise today.

At 4:15am, as per the court record; some 3 hours after his moral assault commenced, the sexual attack by David Lee Lykken ends when natal Mars crosses the descendant. By 4:45pm when Lykken left the premises transiting Pallas had crossed the ascendant.

The victim; DH, prevailed.
