Missing 18 year old college student Hannah Elizabeth GRAHAM – born UK 25th February 1996 (time unknown) Family relocated to Alexandria, Virginia, USA in 2001. Hannah was aged 5.
- Hannah’s current accommodation – Grand Marc Apartments (student accommodation) 301 15th Street NW, Charlottesville, VA. USA
- Last CCTV sighting – 1:08am, 13th September, 2014 at 319 E Main Street, Charlottesville
- LE warrant/residence of POI, Jesse Matthew – 164 Hessian Hills Way, Charlottesville
The Sun-Moon mix of character:
Note: Hannah could be a late Taurus or very early Gemini Moon. Due to what I’ve read in the media of her behaviour and actions, I would suggest that her Moon is likely early Gemini, which takes her to an evening birth.
We have used a rectified time of birth of 10:20pm GMT (author’s prerogative) generated from knowledge of the relocation to the US at the age of 5 years; together with ‘solar-arc’ astrology theory as per Noel Tyl’s method. This will suffice for our exercise here, although we won’t rely on exact placement of the Moon for our interpretation. That said…
With a natal Sun in Pisces and a Gemini Moon we have the personality – the wants and needs of an individual; Hannah Graham. The Pisces symbol features the fish swimming in opposite directions, while the twins of Gemini are looking in two different directions. Both symbolise the variable nature of this pairing; the tendency to go off in different directions. She may feel one way, while logic tells her to go another way. Variable, adaptable, changeable and always a bit indecisive, Hannah would appear to be the chameleon; fitting in wherever she is and whatever company she is in. Pisces Suns are usually easy going.
Strangely, this personality and Sun-Moon mix can alternate between the expression of flexibility and stubbornness; yielding when she would need to be firm and hold her ground when discretion would be wiser than valor. One moment she would be sure of want she wanted; the next moment changing her mind even though she may have already committed herself to the first plan. That’s the telling one story to one group of friends that she was going home and a different to another group that she was off to another party. It’s not that she lied. What happened was that time had passed and she had changed her mind.
What must be learned by individuals with this Sun-Moon mix, is that they would be best served by not talking until their mind is made up, but the quickness of mental activity by Gemini gets in the road. This changeability is a good thing that she would adapt very quickly to changing circumstances, however it appears to have led her astray on this occasion. Well she is only eighteen after all…
Creating a bi-wheel from the perspective of the last sighting at 1:08am in a mall; downtown Charlottesville, plus the outer wheel – the natal chart for Hannah Graham, we can interpret the planetary tension in the chart at the time of this last digitised record of her night.
The first impression is that Hannah is out and about and not aware of any danger; natal Pluto is in the 5th house of entertainment and not apparently under any tension. However it is natal Saturn that is the focus of this chart.
We also immediately note the closeness in the natal chart of natal Venus and South Node – karmic lessons to learn in relation to stubborness and not letting go in relationships. Has this teenager met up with someone whom she already knows and that she should not be seen with? This is about ‘you are judged by the company you keep, girl’.
Cusp of the 8th house has to be considered in a missing person case after this length of time; it is one week later, as I write. The 8th house represents death and/or transformation of a situation. The 8th house cusp is at 29°Capricorn (Saturn x 2). This does not augur well. This cusp is also the midpoint of natal Uranus/Neptune.
Uranus/Neptune = Saturn – there is a clash between ambitions and projections; generally a loss of confidence and lack of clarity in projecting boundaries. Note: This is backed up by the transiting of the same two planets in the inner wheel (Uranus and Neptune) creating a midpoint to Hannah’s natal Saturn at 25°Pisces. Her control of her life-force; the situation, is under high tension.
- What is also jumping through the computer screen is that the transiting Lunar nodal axis is also at this point in the chart 19°Aries/Libra axis – trauma in a public place
- tr Moon (blue) square natal Mercury in 8th house – need to talk herself out of a situation.
- tr Venus (pink) opposite natal Mars in 9th house – Desdemona and Othello symbolism (see asteroids)
- tr Sun (orange) opposite natal Saturn – date on the calendar identifies the timing of the grim reaper’s likely presence.
- Lunar nodal conjunct Lunar node plus natal Venus (pink) – as interpreted earlier
- tr Pluto conjunct natal Jupiter (green) in 7th house of relationships with significant other – inflated sense of power; overly optimistic.
- tr Neptune (turquoise) conjunct natal Sun – subterfuge/addictive substances affecting the personality.
- There is a transiting asteroid present that is particularly ominous – Mollypetit #20472 is conjunct natal Mercury (yellow) in the 8th house. Molly is the latest MDMA party drug; a therapeutic medication, gone social. It doesn’t mix with alcohol at all well; stupefying the taker. Being in the 8th house can indicate Mollypetit is responsible for Hannah’s final demise.
- Hygiea #10 is at 9°Cancer conjunct the ascendant. We all know that Hygiea is associated with health and hygiene in her role of the Greek myths (link). This is suggestive that we have a connection to someone in the medical/health field. Was this a field of study that Hannah was interested in? Had she met up with one of her academic peers?
- Desdemona #666 is at 9°Virgo is conjunct transiting Venus and opposite Hannah’s natal Mars. We know that Desdemona eloped with Othello and so this may suggest that Hannah initially left with Jesse Matthew, willingly. Being in the 3rd house of communication, at least confirms the discussion of leaving together having taken place.
The following maps are highly subjective and must not be taken as an absolute; use as a direction to follow rather than ‘x’ marks the spot….
Taking an initial look at the map of Charlottesville and following our usual method of astrology interacting with cartography, we superimpose a flipped chart of the bi-wheel over the last sighting address as per above. We use natal Saturn as our initial locator as this has proved reliable in the past, however we need a POI’s chart for corroboration.
The locator angle intersecting with natal Saturn gives us a southerly direction to search , rather than towards the direction of the property of interest to LE; at Hessian Hills Way.
Note: We can only accept this angle as a general direction to follow, until further information comes to hand.
PS – Note: this locator angle has proved to be incorrect. Hannah was found on the transiting Saturn-Moon line.
A person of interest – Jesse Leroy Matthew
The resident at Hessian Hills Way whom was a POI for the investigation team is 32 year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew born 14th December 1981. We have generated a bi-wheel from the same perspective as above and use his natal chart as the outer wheel. We reproduce it here as a chart for astrology study only.
The following is the interpretation of this bi-wheel from classic texts. This is a man with Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Leo; hence the orange-coloured car and the dread-locks; leonine symbols. A Leo Moon is always roaring – look at me; give me recognition.
- tr Sun square natal Sun – he’s out and about giving the ego a boost; on display.
- tr Lunar nodal axis conjunct natal Saturn – out in public although in a lonely position.
- tr Venus/Lunar node = natal Mars in 4th house – sexual flirtation (eg let me take you home)
- tr Sun/Saturn = natal Saturn – ditto; although this is a dangerous move when under an FA micro-scope
- tr Saturn/Uranus = natal Venus (pink) – tensions in his romantic life off-again-on again. Is that why he is hitting on Hannah?
Initially, following this interpretation, I did not consider Jesse Matthew to be responsible for the disappearance of Hannah Graham. Had I misjudged the situation? If he has a previous history, I sure have. We must await the Commonwealth Attorney.
Jesse Matthew has been charged on 24th September 2014 with abduction of Hannah Graham with intention to defile. His bond hearing will be on 2nd October.
In the meantime, we are obliged to explore this man’s chart further. If this man is indeed responsible for the demise of Hannah, then judging by the lack of emotion expressed in the chart above, this is likely not to be the first time he would have been down this road of abduction and possible murder. We must look to his character, as per his natal horoscope.
Natal chart commentary:
- Does he have a personality that reveals a lack of emotive expression? It doesn’t seem so when he is out and about – according to all SM reports he is quite chatty. That’s the Sun and Mercury in close company in his natal chart. A weakness for lying is evident by this conjunction as well.
- Neptune is tucked in there between those two planets (Sun-Mercury). I would suggest that perhaps a little ‘dutch courage’ provides this ability for social interaction. Neptune is far too strong in this chart for addictive substances to be excluded from the discussion.
- The ominous 22 degrees is present – both his Sun and Lunar nodal axis. This does not bode well for a happy life. The 22° (Capricorn) brings Saturn into the picture – self-control or lack of self-control – both sides of the coin come into play.
- Another point of weakness in the natal chart is Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter – Pluto is the midpoint of the outer two planets providing a dramatic thrust of self; need to be in control of a situation.
- Mars is peregrine – unpredicable behaviour; potentially dangerous, depending on tension at any given time.
- If we consider potential wounds he carries from childhood, natal Saturn is not Rx so that makes a welcome change and Chiron is at a tad under 19°Taurus.
Chart is generated at the time that JM was taken into custody – 3:30pm 24th Sept 2014; location – Bolivar Peninsular, Texas. The arrest does not appear to have been overly traumatic apart from the Lunar nodal axis at the horizon. He would have gone quietly.
- tr Venus square that personality glitch Mercury-Neptune. The lack of emotive reaction is quite bizarre… unless of course there is a history…

3rd October 2014: Every time I take a fresh look at the charts, I’m stuck on Piedmont College having a connection in relation to finding Hannah Graham. The first bi-wheel/map has an angle of interest in direct contact with the college, as does the second map; albeit with different planetary tensions. Whether it is the vicinity of the college, or connected to #20; Scottsville Road, we do not know.
What we do know in recent days, is that Jesse Matthew attended this college part-time some time after his football-scholarships at Liberty and CNU, so perhaps his history at Piedmont will reveal more. Alternatively could this college be related to the party that Hannah was expecting to attend? We must await msm’s leisure.
18th October: Remains have been found on an abandoned farm; south of Charlottesville – off Old Lynchburg Road. The remains are likely to be confirmed to be those of Hannah Graham.
Note: It would appear that we were too far to the east with our angles. There is more for us to learn with out locator angles.
The line we followed was the traditional natal Saturn. It would appear that the Lunar nodal axis and Venus had a lot more to do with her location. Once we have confirmation of ID, we can review the astrology.
24th October Remains found on property off the Old Lynchburg Road have been identified as being those of Hannah Graham. RIP Hannah.
