Jennifer Farber Dulos

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 here for us in the near future perhaps; putting the characters under our microscope…

Anne-Elizabeth Falkevik Hagen

Formed by the continually moving point where the Sun and Moon meet on the ecliptic (calculated according to the orbits of the Moon around the Earth, and the Earth’s orbit around the Sun), the  resulting Lunar Nodes are particularly sensitive areas in an astrology chart; both natal and during family crises.

The North and South Nodes are mathematical points that are with us every day of our lives interacting with the life-givers of Sun and Moon; father and mother – familial.

When there are conflicts in astrology charts in relation to the Lunar Nodal axis, our attention is piqued.  We can expect significant familial connections and potential traumatic incidents in the lives of those who experience direct tension with the LNA. This is such a case.

An alleged kidnapping and ransom demand for €9m in the cryptocurrency Monero. No proof of life was ever received; no ransom paid; the victim remains missing, and no arrests have been made.

Location: Lorenskog, Norway.

CCTV of suspicious activity: 7:36am 31 October 2018
Missing Person call to LE: 2:10pm 31 October 2018
Law Enforcement kidnapping alarm: 4:06:58pm 31 October 2018
Missing person: Anne-Elizabeth Falkevik Hagen

The following is an astrology enquiry into the relationship between the missing person and her son; together with any added tension in the heavens at the end of October 2018 that may have contributed to Trym Hagen willingly, or inadvertently being responsible for her alleged abduction, ransom demand, and potentially her death.

Astrology is a pseudo science and as such is not accepted in any court of law.  The interpretion is therefore considered to be opinion only.

Anne-Elisabeth Hagen – birth date LNA 9:17°Aries-Libra

click on charts for full size

Anne-Elizabeth Hagen was born with a plethora of retrograde planets and asteroids. We are not aware of her birth time and so house placement cannot be determined.

  • Nonetheless there is every indication in the pattern of early childhood difficulties of mentoring within her birth family. This would surely lead to an introverted life, particularly with the Mars-SouthNode conjunction (mother complex).
  • There is an element of martyrdom present as we would expect in the overall pattern : In Sagittarius, asteroid Martir is in a tug of war with Ceres (personal appetite) with the focus on Chiron, however this resentment set-back is countered by Pluto mirroring Jupiter and square Pallas. The spirit is dampened, but not totally overwhelmed.

Trym Hagen – birth date LNA 0:46° Cancer-Capricorn is the son of Anne-Elizabeth and her husband Tom Hagen.
Note: Trym Hagen does not reside with his parents.

As we would expect Trym was born into a similar cycle with LNA under direct tension with Neptune 28:57°Sagittarius’ accompanying potential resentment and alienation within the family unit; particularly with mother.

  • 04:13°Scorpio Saturn retrogradation also indicates a lack of male mentoring in his early childhood (parental modeling of male-female relationships).
  • Pluto Rx does not indicate a propensity to follow his father’s entrepreneurial talent; moreso obsessively generating trouble and strife (likely part of the self-fulfilling resentment/mother complex).
  • He also carries the ‘Martir gene’ mirroring asteroid Honeycutt (expecting a bigger slice of the pie; entitlement).

Notes of significance revealing inter-personal tension between son and parents:

  • Trym Hagen natal 6:51°Aries; Venus = his parent’s North Node 7°Aries.
  • Trym Hagen North Node 01°Cancer = his parent’s Uranus Rx 01°Cancer
  • Tryn Hagen Mercury 19°Aquarius = his mother’s Jupiter 19°Aquarius
  • Trym Hagen 24°Virgo; mid-range Moon = his father’s Mars Rx 24°Virgo – plus opposite his father’s mid-range Moon 22°Pisces.

There is plenty of behavioural tension within this natal chart; Trym’s version of reality. With a high level of resentment present, is it enough to make him a person of interest in his mother’s disappearance?

The time period between 8pm, 30 October 2018 and 4:07pm, 31October 2018 – LNA 0:38°Leo-Aquarius

  • 8pm 30 October – LNA = House 1-7 forming a box pattern with 5-11 houses Venus Rx 0:35°Scorpio and Uranus 0:17°Taurus. Moon 25:29°Cancer in House #1.
  • 7:36am 31October – LNA = House 9-3 . Venus Rx opposition with Uranus now in 12-6. Moon 02:17°Leo
  • 2:10pm 31 October – LNA = House 7-1. Venus Rx opposition with Uranus now in 8-2. Moon 06:09°Leo
  • 4:07pm 31 October 2018 – LNA = House 11-5. Venus Rx opposition with Uranus now exact horizontal axis. Moon 07:17°Leo.
    • Note: AP Fortuna= Venus/Uranus

As is our regular practice, we use the authoritative times for interpretation of incidents; specific points in time that relate to the investigation.

The Missing Person report chart – 2:10pm, 31October 2018.
LNA 0:38°Leo-Aquarius in the 1st and 7th houses of relationships; personal/spousal.

North and South Nodes are square 4th house Uranus (sudden changes in personal relationships; potentially meeting with unusual people – in the home potentially traumatic).

Note: on the previous evening a door-to-door salesperson is reputed to have called at the home, uninvited (apparently cold-casing the street). This event could also be attributed to this square aspect as creating an unsettling within the family unit).

  • North Node conjunct Moon at 6°Leo (heightened emotions within relationships; potentially spousal – 7th house). Note that this Moon carries all the symbolism of Leo; pride, queen complex etc.
      • North Node quindecile Vesta at 15°Capricorn A quindecile involves compulsive behaviour to the point of obsessional and when Vesta is in Capricorn, this very much relates to security, duty, obligations expecting others to agree to any commitment.
        • Note: again this could very well relate to discussion following a visit by an security alarm sales person.
  • Midpoint of South Node/Pluto=Ascendant. The ascendant at a particular point in time relates to the location. Pluto equates with power and the South Node – the outcome. This midpoint is classically interpreted as the need for influence.

At 2:10pm, we know that Tom Hagen made this call to law enforcement reporting the disappearance of his wife. This interpretation relates as much to Tom Hagen and his relationship with his wife, as to the disappearance of Anne-Elizabeth. He may well have been of the opinion that she had left of her own accord as a result of a family struggle.

The LNA is not the only tension in the heavens at this time, however we continue to focus on the Nodal axis for this astrology enquiry.

Notes of significance revealing tension between this time of 2:10pm transiting planets and asteroids, together with the natal chart for Trym Hagen.

  • Midheaven (significance of this clock-time) 9°Sagittarius + asteroid Photographica 10°Sagittarius = Trym’s Jupiter-Uranus 9°Sagittarius.
  • Midheaven square Trym’s natal Sun 9°Pisces
  • Transiting 0°Sagittarius Mercury = Trym’s natal asteroid Lie 0°Sagittarius (note also square natal Photographica)
  • North Node = Trym’s natal Nessus (abuse of trust)

Kidnapping Alarm released by law enforcement 4:06:58pm 31October 2018 LNA 0:38°Leo-Aquarius EXACT the horizontal axis.

With Uranus at the ascendant and Venus at the descendant, we interpret this as ‘show time for a peer group’. This identifies the LE attention to the evidence of a likely crime of abduction.

  • Square to this axis is transiting LNA (family connection) plus the all-important Arabian Part; Fortuna (expected outcome of this investigation/destiny).
  • A disregard for the outcome of actions (quincunx aspect) is evident with transiting 7th house Mercury 0:32°Sagittarius to the Ascendant/Uranus.
  • Mercury is also mirroring 1st house Juno and Narcissus (both retrograde) – LE would hopefully not miss this familial soft aspects of sextile to the North Node and trine to the South Node from Juno-Narcissus.
  • Moon is now in the 5th house (children) with quincunx to the midheaven and asteroid Lie; both in Capricorn.

Notes of significance revealing tension between this time of 4:07pm transiting planets and asteroids, together with the natal chart for Trym Hagen.

  • Natal Pluto 29°Libra at the Descendant conjunct transiting Venus and opposite transiting Uranus. This is a highly significant aspect; damning in fact.
  • Natal asteroid Nessus (abuse of trust) 1:38°Leo is conjunct the North Node in the 5th house.
  • Notes (see natal chart above):
    • Natal Nessus is also the midpoint of natal North Node and asteroid Alekto (rage).
      Directly opposite at 1-2°Aquarius, is natal asteroid Ceres (personal appetite) together with Borasissi (lies we tell ourselves in order to maintain our sense of reality).
    • This then identifies that natal Ceres is conjunct transiting AP Fortuna/South Node.

I would suggest that Trym Hagen is delusional to believe that he would ‘get away with’ any resentful act that could lead to the death of his mother.

Samantha Lee Josephson

In 1596 the astronomer Johannes Kepler predicted “Between Mars and Jupiter, I place a planet.”

What Kepler was aware of, is the Main Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter; a myriad of minor planets and asteroids contained between the personal planet of Mars and the social/cultural influence of Jupiter….  asteroids that identify the myriad of choices between the taking of action and social/cultural expectations…. decisions, decisions, decisions

Note: The Main Belt asteroids orbit around the Sun in the same direction as the planets, albeit on a slightly elliptical path – taking anywhere from 3-6 years to make a complete orbit.

The following case is a crime in time and place, using a smattering of asteroid knowledge of decisions that affect action within social/cultural expectations.. This case hopefully explains how asteroid tension works both for and against a victim and perpetrator in a particular crime.

…how each experience similar tension to act (Mars) within Social/Cultural expectations (Jupiter).

This astrology enquiry is a random event of particular interest as a stand-alone incident within ‘time and place’.

  • A young woman uses her cell phone to access an Uber ride home. The time is 2:00am in Columbia, South Carolina. The date is 29 March 2019.

The asteroid symbolic of all vehicles; Phaeton‘s orbit is currently at 16:05°Taurus – just sixty degrees from 16°Pisces – Mercury (communication) + AP Fortuna (destiny) + Neptune (unknown/potentially subversive).

All very benign we would expect of any pattern in the heavens, apart from the suggestion of subversive (Neptune) + communication (Mercury) + (AP Fortuna) = destiny awaits.

click on charts for full size

At this particular time and place, set midway between Phaeton and Mercury-APFortuna-Neptune, we note the Immum Coeli; the IC (where the elliptic crosses the meridian – a mathematical measurement).

The IC is also the cusp of the 4th house (symbolic of home).

With the angles taking precedence in all astrology chart interpretation, this is not a matter as simple as catching a ride with an Uber driver. This is literally… going home.

In midpoint analysis, the focus is the IC and the symbolic tug-of-war is between Mercury-AP Fortuna-Neptune tug with Phaeton (vehicle).

This is the pivot point for Samantha Lee Josephson as she stands on the sidewalk at 2am in Columbia, South Carolina.

We could suggest that the desire to go home is the focus (priority), rather than waiting for the Uber ride to arrive (the tug-of-war between Phaeton (vehicle) and Mercury-APFortuna-Neptune.

We could further form the opinion, that the lack of  awareness of her surroundings has resulted in this split-second result (no blame apportioned by us).

This astrology/behaviour interpretation is an observation of facts as presented in the media.

The asteroid Ixion 28:51°Sagittarius is rising above the horizon as the Earth rotates; at the Ascendant – in astrology terms, the location.

Note: The asteroid Ixion is named after a Greco/Roman mythology character – interpreted as symbolic of murder.

In the 2nd astrology house in the heavens (assets), asteroid Photographica is transiting at 24:54°Aquarius conjunct BML/Mean Apogee 26:03°Aquarius.

Notes: Photographica is the asteroid we would use to symbolise the ever-present CCTV recording of the immediate environment. The mean apogee is another mathematical point, measured in relation to time and place; the farthest point from the earth; plus in astrology interpretation = the weakest point in a chart.

The Moon 20:12°Capricorn is in the 1st house of the chart, conjunct Saturn 19:42°Capricorn; together = heightened emotions in relation to self-control.

So from just a snapshot of the heavens, we are immediately aware of the potential for disaster.

Samantha continued to use her cellphone; likely distracted, as a car pulled up alongside her, she opened the door and settled into the back seat. The driver was not her ride hone. He was not her Uber driver.

This immediately reminds us of another common asteroid Pholus; again Greco/Roman mythology based character. Pholus invariably ‘shot himself in the foot with his mistakes’ and so the asteroid is symbolic of where mistakes can be made by a victim (or perpetrator).

Samantha’s natal chart reveals that on the date of her birth (which becomes her version of reality) asteroid Pholus was transiting at 17:32°Libra quincunx natal Pallas-Jupiter-Venus.

A ‘quincunx’ aspect is disregard for the consequences of one’s actions, and so together with the stellium of Pallas-Jupiter-Venus this is indicative of her ‘casual’ attitude when in the company of peers.
We also note that her natal chart has Ixion 2:44°Sagittarius quincunx Sun-Phaeton 3°Taurus. This is innate in her being, not a result of failure in nurturing.

Rather than alternating between the two charts above, we reproduce them as a bi-wheel with the inner chart as the 2am perspective and the natal chart on the outside (in red) aligned by the zodiac.
The natal Moon is mid-range (within 12-13°), however if Samantha were born in the am this would also intensify the resulting tension.

  • Midheaven (timing) natal Pholus  (tripped up) is exact. This is the mistake that determines what follows.
  • Transiting AP Fortuna-Mercury-Neptune are both in the 3rd house conjunct Samantha’s natal stellium of Pallas-Jupiter-Venus – which we know is already quincunx natal Pholus. This then indicates that the quincunx will equally transpose between the midheaven (timing) and her already ‘weakened resolve’.

Nathaniel David Rowland was the driver of the vehicle that Samantha entered. He was not the assigned Uber driver sent to collect her. For all we know, he could have been monitoring Uber on his cell phone, however when I check his horoscope, he does not appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed, so I doubt that this abduction and murder is more sinister than an opportunistic crime.  However the facts remain that this perpetrator pulled to the kerb, and Samantha entered the vehicle.

At 4pm the same day, Samantha’s body was recovered.  This chart for 4pm 29 March 2019, together with the natal chart for the perpetrator  Nathaniel David Rowland – as identified by cctv footage of his vehicle and later apprehension – has similar asteroid tension.

Ar 4pm… the vertical axis (timing) reveals:

  • Midheaven is 18°Taurus:
    • conjunct transiting Phaeton
    • conjunct the perpetrator’s natal Moon
  • The IC is 18°Scorpio:
    • conjunct the perpetrator’s natal Ixion

At 4pm… the horizontal axis (location) reveals :

  • The Descendant  23° Aquarius:
    • conjunct transiting Photographica

This chart confirms the methodology that we followed where decisions were made to take action within social/cultural boundaries. Both victim and perpetrator were caught on cctv  Photographica along with the perpetrator’s vehicle Phaeton.

Less than12 hours later; around 3am on 30 March 2019, Nathaniel David Rowland was apprehended – his vehicle recognised by law enforcement when he was again cruising the early morning hours of Columbia, South Carolina..

Christopher Watts

if Christopher Watt’s second confession is to be believed, 4 year-old Bella cried, “Daddy… No!” as he strangled Bella’s younger sister CeeCee.

From statements on the public record, Christopher Watts was in the midst of an affair. When Shan’ann Watts threatened to withhold access to his children as a result, he destroyed the family unit.

In a self-proclaimed act of martyrdom, ‘saving the feelings of extended family having to endure a trial’, Christopher Watts plead guilty to the murders of his pregnant wife and two young daughters.

Shanann Watts, 34, and her daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, were reported missing with a call for a welfare check at 1:40pm on Monday 13th August 2018. The location; Frederick Colorado.

The following is an astrology enquiry into the tension in the heavens; that of time and place…

A snapshot of the heavens over Frederick, Colorado at the time of the call to law enforcement is charted in this post, together with the natal charts for the adults  – with a purposeful selection of asteroids symbolic of potential weaknesses in behaviour.  I elect to omit the charts for the children.

Astrology notes:

  • Asteroid #3; Juno in relationship astrology, is symbolic of a life-partner. The shadow is possessiveness and jealousy.
  • Asteroid #3200; Phaeton represents a vehicle. Both Bella and Celeste were strangled in the cab of Christopher Watt’s work vehicle. His wife’s body already onboard.

Other asteroids (majority named from Greco/Roman mythology):

  • Borasissi #66652 – lies we tell ourselves in order to maintain self image
  • Ixion #28978 – murder indicator
  • Lie #226955 – purposeful lies
  • Martir #1582 – martyrdom
  • Narcissus #37117 – excessive self-interest
  • Nessus #7066 – abuse of trust
  • Pandora #55 – eg Pandora’s box; release of inner demons
  • Pholus #5145 – errors that will be made

AP Fortuna – a math construct determined by time/location = destiny
Vertex = a significant life-changing event

Christopher Watts

The natal chart; pattern in the heavens on the date of birth describes a person’s ‘norm’ their unique pattern of reality. We are not aware of the time of birth for this character, however we can nonetheless interpret the majority of tension and interpret according to classic texts.

click on charts for full size

  • Natal Sun 25:48°Taurus conjunct the gorgon star 26°Taurus; Algol (a pile of corpses) – this can be interpreted metaphorically as that Christopher Watts would walk over a pile of dead bodies to get what he wanted (Sun=ego’s wants).
  • Sun opposite 24:45°Saturn Rx exposes the lack of male mentoring with either a dominant mother, or absence of father in his early upbringing. This would result in the lack of observation of a balanced male-female interaction role model, potentially taken into adult relationships.
    • The manifestation of this tension is usually expressed as self-control weakness. With his natal Sun in the mirror, Saturn Rx weakness would be illuminated and the ego would experience the resulting tension. “Take no prisoners” mentality.
  • Natal Moon mid-range 21:28°Aries (both a Cardinal and Fire sign of the zodiac) reveals the self-promotional character.
    • The Moon is indicative of reigning needs of an individual (as opposed to wants). An Aries Moon can lead to a successful, entrepreneurial life pattern, although without a strong character pattern to back this up, it’s nothing more than arrogance.
  • Moon quindecile (obsessed by) 6:42°Scorpio’s asteroid Pandora (inner demons) – relying on hope to get him through.
  • Moon opposite/in the mirror to 22:53°Libra; Vesta – hiding within society.

Note: These Moon aspects hint at a tendency to socially paranoid behaviour. Likely socially inept; aloof.

  • Venus 13:45°Aries quindecile Juno Rx; 27:24°Virgo is indicative of the obsessive desire for a similar partner, however his Juno is compromised by being retrograde and also conjunct Narcissis Rx – early warning of excessive self-interest and possessiveness.

Note: His ideal partner is also what he now claims as being his partner’s weakness (her Moon).

Shan’ann Watts  (birth time unknown)

Shan’ann Watts horoscope reveals a mid-range 11:52°Aries; Moon and all the symbolism that goes with this placement in the heavens. Note that Shan’ann’s natal Moon is conjunct Christopher Watt’s natal Venus.

  • Her major weaknesses on this entrepreneurial dream of an Aries Moon, draws our attention to firstly a Yod pattern made up of two quincunx (disregard for the responsibility of consequences) focused on one point in the heavens in particular.
    In Shan’ann’s version of reality, this Yod of Jupiter-Neptune(+Mercury) 28-29°Sagittarius together with natal Mars (+Pluto) 29°Libra is totally focused on 28:08°Taurus; Chiron – chasing Mammon (never having enough) to the extreme (Jupiter); Fear drives the tension.
  • The second serious weakness for us to note, is the BML-Ceres conjunction 3-4°Pisces opposite Pandora (delusional expectation). This inner belief compliments the weakness of the Yod pattern, as it relates to personal appetites being Shan’ann’s weakest link.
  • She is indeed, an entrepreneurial character, however it is to her detriment as natal Pluto (part of the Yod) mirrors her natal Juno at 1:24°Taurus. Her life-partner is in the mirror, under tension by her symbol of power; Pluto.

As with the natal chart for Christopher there is much more that could be interpreted, however I leave that to others.

1:40pm 13th August 2018 – an objective clock-time/welfare check

The angles always take priority in interpretation and this chart is no different.

  • 17:59°Taurus; Juno on the horizontal axis reveals the marriage/life-partnership breakdown for the murders.
    This, together with associated jealousy and possessiveness in the killer’s natal chart – Juno Rx = a possessive and jealous nature confirms not only the motive for the murder of his wife, but to extend  to include the murder of his two children.
  • At the IC; the vertical axis, the asteroid Martir 28:45°Aquarius symbolises his notion of being an act of martyrdom; ie delusion as to the motive for his actions.
    • 28°Aquarius Martir creates a midpoint (tug of war) with 28°Sagittarius; Pholus (mistakes that are made) with the focus on 28-29°Capricorn; Pandora-Mars (release of inner demons).

The continuation of this ‘martyr’ theme into the aftermath and plea is likely more a case of concealing Christopher Watt’s ego weakness and exposure of his evil intent (Sun-Pandora) from exposure at trial, rather than protecting the extended family.
The persistent focus on his devout religious self-image in the aftermath is not in accord with his actions according to the astrology.. He is delusional.

  • Ixion 25:20°Capricorn is quindecile (obsessive/compulsive act) with 9:45°Gemini; Phaeton (vehicle) indicate the murders of his children + transport of his wife’s body. Capricorn is not the realm of delusion. The natural ruler of Capricorn is Saturn – an earth sign; practical matters.
    Note Phaeton can also be indicative of the drone search of his work premises, which identified the burial site of Shan’ann’s body.
  • Moon (personal needs) at 24:25°Virgo mirrors Borasissi 23:09°Pisces (lies he tells himself to maintain self-image; ie what he needs to do/taking care of business).
  • Moon quindecile Nessus (abuse of trust) 8:28°Pisces.

In hindsight we could interpret this as likely part of the Borasissi tension – eg Shan’ann’s threat to deny him his children (due to his infidelity) was an abuse of trust by her of his part of the family unit. Perhaps so, perhaps not…

As a post script. I include a compound chart; a triwheel of the three charts.

The inner chart is the perspective of the crime 1:40pm as above in the astrodienst charts; together with the natal charts for Christopher and Shan’ann Watts – aligned by the zodiac.

This reveals a simplistic version of the basis of the crime according to the tension in the heavens on the three dates.
