Sun and Moon combo

The first thing I look at with this horoscope for Gerard Baden-Clay is the combination of a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Sagittarius.  This would produce a dreamer who thinks in large broad terms; a Virgo who consistently belies the nature of the sign. Virgo by nature is usually quite practical.

With this luminary (Sun and Moon) mix he would be capable of doing things that he probably disapproves of (morally or ethically) for the sake of adventure, romance, and excitement. He is definitely not a classic Virgo possessing a focused mind. IMO – many of the thoughts that run though his head bear little connection to everyday life.

Instead of looking inside himself, he seems to hold preconceived notions of what he is or would like to be. GBC can be so idealistic at times that it will be hard for anyone to meet his expectations.

He can spend a good part of his life just daydreaming so his present incarceration provides plenty of time to fulfill this need.

The accused’s challenge will always be to control his restless nature and concentrate on things that have true relevancy. He would have a tendency toward bluntness in dealing with other people and often they would take a tactless comment much more personally than was intended. Human sensitivities are something that he has difficulty understanding.

He can be very dramatic in all his actions, and likely has a good talent for acting. This being second nature to him would make his assessment within the Arthur Gorrie Corrective Centre a challenge for the prosecution’s team of behavioural psychiatrists and psychologists.

A crime

On 20 April  2012 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia a missing persons report made headline news in the mainstream media. A former beauty queen, wife and mother of three was missing under what quickly appeared to be very suspicious circumstances. Her name was Allison Baden-Clay.

The name drew attention overseas as the ‘Baden’ part of the name was associated with the worldwide scouting movement and Lord Baden Powell.

As I continued to read the media headlines my interest grew.  The interviews and reports of what I considered bizarre behaviour of her husband and his family brought me ‘to attention’.  The story was on the lips of everyone I spoke to.

Ten days after her reported disappearance, Allison’s body was found by a canoeist on the bank of Kholo Creek under a road bridge. The media kept the story on page one.

On 13 June 2012, Gerard Baden-Clay, Allison’s husband was charged with the murder and disposal of her body. He was immediately held in remand pending a bail application.  The following Thursday a bomb scare ended the bail hearing and it was held over until the following day, Friday 22 June.  The accused was refused bail on the conditions that he was considered, by the judge, to be a flight risk.
