High Court Hearing


Astrology and science were as-one until enlightened inventors made improvements to the telescope.  Science was then able to discount that the constellations of the zodiac were fixed in space as was believed in medieval times; that they are in direct motion within our solar system.  Their orbit around the Sun, in fact, takes about 24,000 of our Earth years. That is about two thousand years per zodiac sign; e.g. Age of Pisces; Age of Aquarius etc.

Have you ever wondered why the zodiac symbol for Pisces (two fishes) is associated with Christianity? There’s your answer.  At the time of Jesus, it was the Age of Pisces.

Astronomy separated from astrology in the name of progress, leaving astrologers to work with the zodiac fixed in time and space; relegated as a medieval art form. As a result, astrology charts are referred to as models of reality, rather than reality itself.

We elect to use the modern astrology method by which we retain the planetary tension in real-time astronomy, however we elect to use the medieval zodiac as our backdrop rather than use mathematical equations which none of us would be able to get our heads around.  This allows us to use the wisdom of the medieval texts of astrology for interpretation.  I like to call it ‘bending the space-time continuum’.  😉

But I digress…  The death of Allison Baden-Clay on the night of 19-20th April 2012 in Brisbane, Australia led the way to the last four years of a focus on domestic violence in the country of my birth.  This case has also0 been what stirred me to start this blog; adding to the voice of the growing ground-swell.

Did you kill your wife Allison?”GBC-ABCimage
“No, I did not.”

“Did you fight with her on the evening of the 19th?”
“No, I did not.”

The trial-by-jury delivered its verdict  on 15 July 2014; a murder conviction of Gerard Baden-Clay; husband of the victim; his wife. Gerard Baden-Clay was sentenced and incarcerated.

On 8th December 2015 the outcome of an appeal by the convict, created a public uproar when the sentence was downgraded to manslaughter.   The people of Brisbane rose up to protest, demanding an appeal by the State Government.

When the result of a trial by a jury is downgraded; treated as ‘legal hubris’ the populace feel the flush of  a slap in the face. Arrogance of the court system is how this is perceived when the outcome is appealed so easily, by anyone with a purse of gold.  

Appeal against downgrading of a murder conviction – the timeline

  • 8th January 2016 – the Queensland Court delayed the re-sentencing of Gerard Baden-Clay until the appeal against the downgrading of his murder conviction goes before the High Court of Australia.
  • 1st February 2016 – State DPP outlined the crown’s summary of argument and why the High Court should return the murder conviction.
  • 22nd February 2016 – lawyers for the defense lodged their High Court submission in the legal wrangle over his downgraded murder conviction.

High Court to hear the case in Brisbane, 10:15am 26th July 2016

 We, as astrologers, cannot bring a woman subjected to the ultimate act of violence back to life, however we can study the heavens; in particular the patterns of tension created at a particular time and in a particular place. Having the freedom of opinion, and without prejudice., we interpret from classic medieval texts.

In horary astrology, the outcome of a court case can be found at the IC; the end of the matter.  The IC is at the bottom of an astrology chart, however in real terms on a map of the territory, this is due North.  i.e. where the ecliptic crosses the meridian in the north of our planet, Earth.

At this time and at this place, (in Brisbane, 10:15am 26th July 2016) – when we turn our eyes heavenwards and due north; the Immum Coeli/IC will be at 10:02ºCapricorn.  None of the planets in our solar system are exact this place in the sky.  Pluto is close at 15:46ºCapricorn, however the asteroid Niobe#71 is exact North, orbiting at 10:31ºCapricorn against the backdrop of the zodiac.

We look to Greco/Roman mythology to guide us to the interpretation of the ancients:

highcourthearingThe tragic tale of Niobe centered on the consequences of hybris, a strange concept in the Greek antiquity, which said that if you act with arrogance towards the Gods, then you will be punished. Insolence is another word that fits with this concept.  Actually Niobe’s story is a classic example of the wrath of gods against human weaknesses and has been beautifully narrated in Homer’s Iliad.

fates-1The other Greco/Roman mythological characters that must be considered in an astrology enquiry of this magnitude, are those of the Fates; Klotho (spinner of the thread of life), Lachesis (she who measures the length of cord; a mortal life) and Atropos (the cutter of the length of cord; death)  See Plato’s Myth of Er for the legend.

We are concerned with Klotho in this enquiry, due to the fact that Australian law courts do not consider the death penalty; it is no longer an option.  The length of the cord-of-life, and when the cord is cut is not within the court’s discretion.

  • On 26th July 2016, Pluto 15:46ºCapricorn meanwhile (Guardian of the Underworld in mythology), mirrors the asteroid Fini#795 (the end) at 15:28ºCancer by opposition.  I would suggest that this aspect represents the High Court finding as being the final power of the earthly realm.  The High Court judges will have the last word on the matter.
  • We note that Pluto-Fini are EXACT square to the horizon; Ascendant-Descendant.  As it begins; so it ends.
  • the asteroid Klotho#97 is orbiting at 16:24ºVirgo against the zodiac PLUS exact the asteroid Gerard#1337 at 16:42ºVirgo.   These two asteroids are in the 12th house (incarceration) at 10:15am; the trial opening.

GBCGerard Baden-Clay and The Fates; in particular, Klotho

While we have the Fates on our agenda, allow me to explain the particular significance of Klotho in the life of Gerard Baden-Clay.   Previously I have rectified his birth time from information on the public record.  I may be out by a few minutes for the angles and house cusps, however this next chart will suffice for the explanation I wish to share.

When we discuss Elements of the zodiac (fire-air-earth-water) together with the trio of Modes (cardinal, fixed, mutable)…  in particular, the element of Earth refers to ‘practical matters’ and Cardinal is as the dictionary defines – ‘of the greatest importance; fundamental’.

  • In his natal horoscope, when Gerard Baden-Clay was born in Bournemouth, England, the asteroid Klotho#97 was orbiting across the background of the zodiac at 13:35ºCapricorn in the 5th house of his horoscope.

Note: This is both Cardinal (C) and the element of Earth (E) – see red arrow underneath the wheel.  So where Klotho is located in his horoscope will be both ‘fundamental’ to his life and will be of a ‘practical nature’.

  • As for the position in the chart, the 5th house represents ethics and morals (among other symbolism).  We can therefore suggest that this child will harbor weaknesses in this area of his life.
  • Then when we note the quindecile aspect to the asteroid Fini at 28:03º Gemini in the 12th house of hidden aspects (or jail for that matter), this will be an obsessional matter in his life.  He may even reach the finality of life while in the ‘big house’.

We cannot put this down to, “Oh it’s the Fates and so there is nothing he could do about it.”  I disagree.  The position and tension in an astrology chart reveals the weaknesses in a character; weaknesses that can be overcome if the character is willing. 

Gerard-Baden Clay, Klotho and the High Court of Australia

Rather than put the two charts side by side, we generate a bi-wheel of the two from the perspective of the court hearing.  The natal chart aligns by the zodiac with the transiting bodies in blue text and the natal chart for Baden-Clay is red.

26July-GBC-astro2We know that transiting asteroids Gerard-Klotho are 16ºVirgo and in the 12th house of the High Court hearing chart (incarcerated/hidden).  So when we have the two charts together, we can see the obsession with the natal chart of Baden-Clay; his model of reality.

  • transiting (purple) Gerard-Klotho quindecile natal Pholus/Lunar North Node (purple) in the 5th house (obsession in relation to love lost) at 29:29ºAquarius/2:54ºPisces.  This man; who has been found responsible for the death of his wife, has more concern for the disconnect from his family (Pholus represents shooting oneself in the foot) rather than taking responsibility for his actions – i.e. killing his wife.   This indicates to me that there has been no successful rehabilitation to date.

Klotho is certainly giving Gerard Baden-Clay a workout. However his inner resolve; natal Pallas 10:08ºPisces, will keep him incarcerated when we note that transiting (turquoise) Neptune is conjunct natal Pallas.   That, together with natal Pluto being quindecile to his Pallas as well, he likely believes that this compulsion (seen as intense resolve) empowers him, when in fact it does just the opposite; dis-empowering his inner strength and creating mental health problems most likely (5th-12th house axis), while he is in jail.

Note also that natal 25:44ºVirgo, Pluto is also in quindecile aspect with natal Chiron (10:04ºAries) further compounding the inner-wound of powerlessness.  This sense of worthlessness lives below the surface of his consciousness; unacknowleged.  Baden-Clay is unlikely to change, sticking to his guns; in denial that the problem even exists.  He can thereby live in a state of delusion, thus maintaining his arrogance.

For other posts in relation to this case see Scout’s Honour   I must admit I have been rather obsessive about this case.  RIP Allison Dickie.


The cookie crumbles

Did you kill your wife Allison?”
GBC-ABCimageNo, I did not.”

“Did you fight with her on the evening of the 19th [of April 2012]?”

“No, I did not.”

A jury of Gerard Baden-Clay’s peers delivered a verdict – guilty of murder.  A year later an appeal to the court downgraded the sentence to manslaughter.  Did this decision, based on the letter of the law, ignore the humanities and social sciences; the origins of the legal system?  Have those within the state system lost touch with reality?

We add to the realm of opinion by creating an astrology enquiry into what appears to be an act of outrage at this time when public opinion is focused on violence against women.  We can’t bring a woman subjected to the ultimate act of violence back to life, however we can study the heavens; in particular the patterns of tension created at a particular time and in a particular place.

We interpret from classic medieval texts, reminding us all that this is a model of reality, not reality itself. i.e. not accepted in any contemporary court of law.

  • Time: 9:30am, 8th December 2015
  • Place: Brisbane, Australia

Heavily weighted to the assertive-defensive hemisphere, this chart lacks consideration for others.  Knowing the delivery from the bench ahead of time, we could have been prepared. However with the gift of hindsight, we continue our interpretation.

R v Baden-Clay QCA15-265 – the downgrading from murder to manslaughter

manslaughter-duoAn Air Grand Trine in this mundane chart for 9:30am (produced from the public arena) reveals the mental energy trapped within the red triangle – asteroid Allison 11:39°Gemini – Black Moon Lilith/mean apogee 11:35°Libra  and asteroid Ceres 11:20°Aquarius.

  • Allison (victim and wife of Gerard Baden-Clay) in the 4th house – is this suggesting that the wife’s place is in the home?
  • BML/mean apogee in the 8th house – death and transformation.
  • Ceres in the 12th house…

 Ceres in Aquarius in criminal profiling equates with avoiding personal contact by evasive action; running away.  So rather than projecting, evaluating, or expressing Aquarian humanities in the astrology houses 1,2, or 3, we can see that it has remained a mental consideration only; in the 12th house of this chart.

In order to process this perceived error in judgement, we look for a release valve for this trapped energy on the opposite side of the chart.  We know that air fans fire, or can extinguish it; that balance is needed.

  • Asteroid Allison in the 4th house looks to 11°Sagittarius (fire element)  – court of public opinion in the 10th house
  • Black Moon Lilith in the 8th house looks to mend that broken link – self worth; value of ourselves is in question in the 2nd house 11°Aries (fire element – action)
  • Ceres needs to escape the mental, hidden closet with a release valve at 11°Leo (fire element) in the 6th house of morals and ethics of everyday life; practicalities. 

So what do we have in the heavens at these three positions?

  • 11°Sagittarius is the midpoint between the Sun and Saturn – the date on the calendar meets Father Time.  It is an illumination of ambition on the public stage for the victim.  Petition, march, protest.  It is a time to express public opinion.
  • 11°Aries in the heavens the asteroid Persephone (named after the Greco/Roman mythological character).  Persephone is the daughter of Ceres whom spends half the year in the Underworld and the other half on the surface – a time for compromise. Is this a face-saving exercise for the authority of the courts?
  • 11°Leo will remain in the shadows with asteroid Aphrodite 11:37° (Greek for Venus/peer group) – a peer review within the legal system most likely.

Apart from this Air Grand Trine in the mundane chart we have more to interpret. The Sun/Moon midpoint is always the primary focus of a particular point in time where needs (Moon) and wants (Sun) are in tension.

  • Sun/Moon=25:47°Scorpio – in the 10th house i.e. the public stage; handing down the decision by the QCA.

Interpreting through the houses, we note in the first house that 6:06°Pisces Asteroid Antonia (Toni McHugh; the ‘other woman’)  is EXACT asteroid Atropos (Greco/Roman mythology – cutting of a life-line) and conjunct 7:06°Pisces Neptune (hidden aspects; delusion) – we can but wait for this to unfold, as it will. 

Turning to the second chart with this in mind, we can see the dotted line (quindecile) from this first house Neptune (turquoise)  to Jupiter (green) – the decision by the court to transform the guilty sentence.  Neptune is also in square aspect to Saturn (risk of martyrdom).  Is this woman  (Toni McHugh) obsessing and deluded into believing her lover will be released soon?  

Initially I think not, when we see asteroid Lovas in the secretive 14:37°Scorpio reflecting Fini by opposition 13:03°Taurus.  But as we know, individual characters are not yet in this interpretation.

We note the asteroid Lie at 12:36°Pisces at the cusp of the 2nd house (self-worth) is opposite the asteroid Gerard (Baden-Clay) 11:05°Virgo in the 7th house (the husband of the victim) – self explanatory.

  • Chiron 16:59°Pisces square the Sun 15:32°Sagittarius –  Chiron in Pisces is always in crisis. This is a universal level crisis, nothing small ever hits this combination. This is not a day to slip a decision under the table.
  • Lunar South Node 27:53°Pisces square 11th house Mercury (yellow) – friends speak out in public.
  • Vesta 00:38°Aries quindecile 9th house Mars brings a higher meaning to keeping the home fires burning; a woman’s role.  Note: (pink) Venus together with the (blue) Moon (the population) are also in this 9th house in support of a higher cause.

Update, May 2016:  This was not the end of the matter.  We waited patiently along with many, many others until the High Court of Australia announced that they would hear an appeal in Brisbane on 26th July 2016; starting gun at 10:15am…

To be continued…

Gerard Baden-Clay appeal

“Gerard Baden-Clay could have killed his wife accidentally.” The public gallery watched on in respectful silence; the three judges, stoic.  The attempt to float an alternative to the murder conviction will hang in the balance as the judges confer; for however long it takes them.

Nigel-OliviaHis father and sister were in attendance, although the convicted Gerard Baden-Clay stayed away, as did his mother, Elaine.  The Chief Scout, Baden-Powell continued to roll in his grave.

Born plain old Nigel Clay, the father of the accused; Gerard Baden-Clay, changed his name to ride on the shirt-tails of scouting-fame and now his son has brought infamy to the entire troop.

The following is an astrology enquiry; pseudo scientific and not accepted in any court of law.  Please remain skeptical of the outcome, although classic texts based on medieval astrology are used for interpretation.

appealAll rise; the court of appeal is now in session…

The timing of the appeal reveals Arabian Point/Lot (Destiny) exact by transiting the 10th house/the public realm to Mars at 28°Cancer. That’s the area in the heavens where the dog wags his tail in the constellation of Canis Major; the fixed star Aludra. This symbolism stirs up war and restores peace.

The public and the media will keep the pressure on, I’m sure before Allison June Dickie can rest in peace.

The Sun (orange) 14°Leo identifies the date on the calendar as well as the ‘wants’ of the outcome to this appeal.  We note the quindecile aspect to the 4th house asteroid Ceres; that’s all of us, at home.  Mars is also holding up a mirror by opposition.  Never fret we are on alert.  There’s more that could be interpreted, however there’s no need for us to stretch the elastic…

When Ceres is transiting through the heavens in the zodiac sign of Capricorn, this indicates rather dour approach to nurturing and so we need to lighten up a bit; trust in the due process of law. Holding tight to an outcome; ambitious, will not make a zot of difference.  The heavens have it all under control, of that we can be sure.

Appeal-NigelNigel Baden-Clay – father of the appellant

Transiting Mars at 28°Cancer in the public arena of the 12th house was bound to catch the camera’s eye; square his natal Moon – his needs.  Nigel Baden-Clay has an Aries Moon: numero uno – I am, bwana and don’t you forget it.

The other significant aspect in Nigel’s astrology chart under tension at the time the court rose, is transiting Lunar nodal axis conjunct his natal Neptune in the 12th house; the conviction and the public.  With a number-plate Bwanas we might suggest that he learn a little humility, under the circumstances.

Meanwhile at the cusp of the 8th house, we note his natal Uranus 00°Gemini – this reveals his input to the alternative being floated by the defense (manslaughter v murder).  Gemini is always a slippery contender and at the cusp we know it relates to the death of his daughter-in-law.  Slippery ‘what’ do you propose, Nigel?

With the ascendant-descendant in an arms-length embrace, plus the 2nd-8th cusps at the raw opening degrees, I would expect the appeal to be under-developed and raw.  I.e. there’ll be no messing about with the time and legal argument with Capricorn Ceres in the mix.   Experienced judges have all been down this road before.

Appeal-GBCGerard Baden-Clay – the appellant

The rectified birth time calculated some time back holds true when we note that the natal mid-heaven is at the descendant and the IC at the ascendant; hoping for an upturned trial.

Transiting Moon (blue in the inner wheel) is quindecile natal Neptune (his fanciful incarceration disbelief).  Once  the Moon passes over transiting Saturn (authority), he’ll get a rude awakening.  Boy, he’s still positive even after the time he’s been in jail: must be enjoying the lay-about life of the ‘poor and in-famous’.

The appelant’s natal ascendant is at the cusp of the 11th house – needing friendship and support.  I guess living in a closed environment then delusion takes-hold as to the reality of what’s really happening in his-story.

appeal-endAll rise… Two hours and seven minutes later, at 12:22pm it was all over, bar the decision. Transiting Neptune (turquoise) is now in the 4th house, with the judges retiring to consider their call; square the ascendant.

  • Ceres has progressed to the communication realm (3rd house) and the media goes to press.
  • Arabian Point/Lot of Destiny is now 7°Virgo exact square the ascendant. It’s all in the hands of Destiny now.

With Juno entering the public realm (10th house) this usually refers to a marriage partner.  This brings to mind the other-woman in his marriage to Allison; the third party in the marriage and his mistress.  Where does she stand in all this?

endappeal-McHughThe mistress – Toni McHugh

I’ve drawn her chart up in relation to the 12:22pm time, as this will be representative of the appeal end.

Wow – we have natal Mars at the ascendant and mid-range Moon at the descendant together with her Lunar Nodal axis at the MC-IC axis.  This lady is not out of the picture by any means no matter what she protests publicly, her ambition is there for all to see. Is this just another of her fantasies, or does Toni dance with Destiny at the wedding feast after all?

Perhaps Juno is shaking out her confetti packet; tempting fate…

Michael David Robertson

Following the scent, or as some one say; one’s intuition, can oftentimes take you to some interesting places. I was in court last week towards the end of a murder trial, when an expert witness took the stand. It was close to the end of the list, however my interest had not waned.

M-RobertsonPrior to the defence’s expert witness’ testimony, the accused had taken the stand, likely against advice from counsel. We had noted the Sagittarius Moon influencing the accused, Gerard Baden-Clay’s decision to speak in his own defense; i.e. insistent on having his opinion heard and respected. It was not a dull performance.

That aside, one of the expert witnesses did not have the air of authority that I expected to see. In my opinion, his evidence appeared to be more useful to the prosecution argument, rather than the defense, but I’m no authority in such matters. Was it because of his place in the list; that he had followed the accused to the witness box? Or was he just having an ‘off’ day I wondered? Either way, it was enough for me; I tagged him for further attention.

I was very surprised to learn that someone whom continued to stake their career as an ‘expert witness’ in the courts of Australia, had an arrest record in the USA; had an outstanding warrant for his arrest in the USA; had refused to take a polygraph test in relation to a murder in the USA; had not followed correct procedure in relation to the handling of toxicology evidence in a US murder investigation.

Note: a toxicologist analyses bodily fluids to determine whether drugs are present in a sample. The question they must ask of any evidence is,  “When does therapeutic become toxic?”

Now why would a scientist risk his career; go beyond therapeutic and enter the realm of toxicity, himself? Because he was personally involved in the case, that’s why…

This case in Brisbane must’ve re-awakened a few memories, as there are parallels in the two cases.   The Brisbane case is a man on trial for murdering his wife, with a lover in the wings. In the case of our toxicologist, he was the lover waiting in the wings in another murder case; a murder where a woman was found guilty of murdering her husband. Both cases also hinged on the claim of suicide by the defense, with the victim supposedly despondent over their marital problems.

A graduate of Monash University, Melbourne – Ancora Imparo (still I learn), Michael David Robertson could do well to heed those words and learn to leave the judicial system to those of high repute, but that’s just the opinion of an astrologer. We turn to the heavens to undertake a forensic astrology enquiry into that original murder case in which he was involved.

Having two sets of the United States Court of Appeals documents to hand, wherein Rossum petitioned the court for a writ of habeas corpus, we take up the challenge to unravel the cosmic point of view. The defense claimed it was suicide; the prosecution, murder and it all came down to the toxicology.  In December 2002, Kristin Margrethe Rossum was found guilty and convicted of first degree murder of her husband Gregory T. deVillers; the criminal penalty – life without parole.

Australian, Michael Robertson was the Forensic Toxicology Laboratory Manager and Chief Toxicologist of the Office of the Medical Examiner in San Diego, California, a position he only held for seven months before it was terminated; one month after the murder. Robertson flew back to Australia, never to return.

His lover Kristin Rossum had a chemistry degree and worked in the laboratory under Michael Robertson. Both married, they were in the midst of an illicit affair. DeVillers (Rossum’s husband) and her lover, Michael Robertson were aware of Kristin Rossum’s drug-taking history; her taste – methamphetamines.

Four days after confronting his wife about his suspicions of her affair and recurrence of drug use, Gregory deVillers died from a dose of a synthetic opiate. Not Methadone, which works by keeping the pain-receptors filled, rather Fentanyl, which would hit you like a ton of bricks, once the levels in the blood reached a toxic level; stopping the ability to breathe.

Following deVillers’ death, the Office of the Medical Examiner audited its impounded drugs and discovered that fifteen Fentanyl patches and ten milligrams of Fentanyl standard were missing (all Rossum’s area of responsibility). The Office of the Medical Examiner also determined that quantities of methamphetamine, clonazepam and oxycontin were also missing.

Methamphetamines aside, these same three toxins were found in the victim’s blood sample; Clonazepam, Oxycontin and Fentanyl. The autopsy also determined that the Fentanyl was possibly administered over a period of up to twelve hours prior to the 911 call at 9:22pm, 6th November 2000.

On that fateful day at 7:42am, Rossum called her husband’s employer reporting his being ‘sick’ before setting off to work herself. She stated that she returned home at lunchtime ostensibly to check on her ailing husband, before spending the afternoon in the company of her lover. Rossum again went home at 6:30pm; then out again, before finally returning at 8pm. It was not until after 9pm that she noticed her husband was no longer breathing.

Note: There had been plenty of opportunity to top-up the drugs during the day; the verdict of murder, substantiated. The trial came down to a matter of whom had access to the drug. DeVillers didn’t; Rossum did.

There now is the unanswered question of whether the autopsy samples were contaminated in the laboratory, or whether the Fentanyl was in the original blood sample.   Rossum’s attorneys did not follow this line of enquiry in her trial and so we ask the all-important question of the heavens ourselves.

Was Michael Robertson involved in any premeditation of the murder of his lover’s husband, or even did he contaminate the autopsy evidence? 

Note: Astrology is a pseudo science and not accepted in a court of law. We reproduce charts of planetary positions in the heavens at a specific point in time and comment according to textbook interpretations. All information is on the public record, should anyone wish to check.

922-RossumWe generate our first bi-wheel (method) and view through the perspective of the 911 call as reported; 9:22pm on Monday 6th November 2000. The outer wheel is the birth chart for Kristin Rossum. Birth time is not known and so a mid-range Moon is used (noon).

Kristin Rossum has a stellium of natal planets with the handle of the fan, peregrine Jupiter. This is a person extremely OTT in whatever they do, be it drugs or romance. She also has Sun conjunct the nodal axis, which invariably indicates childhood issues with her nurturer. I should imagine this child would have been a handful, when we look at the astrology.

This bi-wheel has the stellium of natal planets revealed in the 4th house of home/the heart’s desire at the time of the 911 call; Venus-Moon and Neptune in the 5th house of pleasure (affairs) and all managed by this rampant Jupiter in the 11th house – seeking love and approval from a lover (5th house).

It is when we bring the transiting planets into the mix, that we get to understand the emotive reactions under tension. The forensic indications are all present to support a guilty verdict.

Transiting Sun (orange) in the inner wheel is the date on the calendar. This is where the impulse/highlight reveals why the event occurred on this particular day, but first we can see that the commitment to take action was likely made four days earlier when the transiting Sun was conjunct natal Mars; 11°Scorpio.

  • Tr Sun square natal Saturn – the presence of the internal grim reaper is highlighted; under tension
  • Tr Pluto conjunct natal Neptune (turquoise) – power of subterfuge. Note also that Neptune is the drug flag.
  • Tr Neptune in 7th house of marriage square natal 10th house Lunar nodal axis – her career is likely a motivating factor behind the trauma.
  • Tr Saturn conjunct natal Jupiter – grim reaper/timing joins the natal ‘peregrination factor’ already in her chart
  • Tr Jupiter opposite mi-range natal Moon (blue) – inflating personal needs.

As for Michael David Robertson, we repeat the process, although with the finer detail of midpoint analysis added to our interpretation. But first, we must comment on two aspects in his natal chart – a Saturn retrograde phenomenon (lack of childhood male mentoring) plus this same Saturn Rx quindecile Venus (a tendency towards obsession and authority of ‘the feminine’; women).

922-RobertsonImmediately, we note the activity in this bi-wheel is entirely focused on the 5th house – the lover. The weight of planets is on the RHS – consideration of ‘her’; his lover. His Saturn-Venus obsession is ruling the day.

So to the hard aspects in this bi-wheel:

  • Tr Neptune square natal Saturn Rx – subterfuge of the self-control; forensic indicator
  • Tr Moon (blue) conjunct natal Lunar nodal axis – emotional trauma present
  • Tr Saturn opposite natal Neptune – forensic indicator/grim reaper together with subterfuge/drugs.
  • Tr Jupiter (green) opposite natal Mercury – inflated communication
  • Tr Sun (orange) square natal Mars – date on the calendar is highlighted as the day of action.

Note: This aspect refers to the date of the murder, not the date when he had access to the autopsy specimens. I would suggest that this answers the second of our questions.

  • Tr Venus in the 6th house opposite mid-range Moon – ethics and morals are under tension by personal needs. The Moon take precedence as it is a driving need; his choice.

Note: Even before considering the midpoints, the house placement and tension in this bi-wheel, is suggestive of discussion/collusion of the implementation of drugs by his lover (natal Venus in the 5th).

Midpoints of transiting planets impacting on natal planets are heavily weighted in Sagittarius (opinion) and Scorpio (control of power) suggestive of Robertson’s input into planning, however fanciful.

  • Sun/Pluto=Neptune 28°Scorpio – self-sacrifice in a relationship/to a cause
  • Mars/Neptune=Sun (orange) 3°Sagittarius – new plans illuminated; situational change
  • Mars/Uranus=Mercury (yellow) 9°Sagittarius – strategy; planning
  • Mercury/Pluto=Venus 20°Scorpio– promotions of any kind plus ‘up front’ sexual expression

Any wonder this man gets nervous when he is in a courtroom where drugs, subterfuge and extra marital affairs are on the agenda.

Michael Robertson returned to Australia before the trial of Kristin Rossum. He was named as an ‘un-indicted co-conspirator’ in Rossum’s original trial, however he has never been indicted for Gregory deVillers murder. I should imagine that he dare not step foot on American soil; for fear of arrest – heaven only knows why…
