Staying with the natal chart of the accused Gerard Baden Clay and in the realm of the luminaries (the Sun and the Moon) there is a midpoint in particular to take note of.
In astrology it is called the Sun Moon Midpoint, a mathematical point midway (or exactly halfway) between the Sun and the Moon in a horoscope.
The Sun/Moon midpoint represents a point of “inner marriage” of your needs and your wants. It symbolises the close personal relationship of these psychological basics. This point is very important in any kind of relationship analysis, as well as the natal chart. This is the strongest point of individual need fulfillment, and thus it has to do with relationships and self-acceptance on a deep level. The Sun/Moon midpoint reveals your motivation, your driver in a horoscope.
Whenever we write of a midpoint of any planets it is indicated by the slash symbol as in ‘Sun/Moon’ or Venus/Moon etc
The accused, Gerard Baden-Clay’s midpoint Sun/Moon is at 02 Scorpio 55. His natal chart reveals that at the time of his birth Venus was in conjunction with this midpoint as was the planet Jupiter. Now that’s a bunch of info! Straight off the top of my head reads ‘Scorpio – hmmm sex as a driver; this motivator together with Venus – a ‘ladies man’; ditto motivator together with Jupiter = lots of social activity. My instinct tells me that we are talking about a ‘pants man’ here. Sure that’s easy to say considering the following:
Mainstream media reported: At the time of the murder GBC had one mistress whom he has promised to leave his wife for, plus at least two other recent casual affairs on record.
To return to the classical astrological interpretations however, Jupiter conjunct Sun/Moon equates with the need to have successes as the focal point. When a person has Sun/Moon together with Jupiter they feel best when able to be directing, leading or guiding others at whatever level and that they won’t be happy in the role of ‘subject’. So we have an instigator with the motivation of success.
A man with Venus in Scorpio to start with peaks my interest! These men have a strong need to control their partner, although this won’t be immediately apparent, and they may not ever admit to this. Depending on the moment, this male Venus in Scorpio will shoot you one of those piercing glares or totally blow up. Whichever style they choose, a slighted Scorpio lover is not a pretty sight. These people can be jealous of all of your attachments including your children or any other family members, but few will admit it. They’re not afraid of being underhanded in matters of the heart.
As to the midpoint significance, Venus conjunct Sun/Moon, well Venus is the focal point and the midpoint as you know is the fundamental driver. Rather than repeat myself, I think you can form your own opinion by combining the Venus in Scorpio together with Venus=Sun/Moon… I think this confirms my initial instinct and that is just the Sun/Moon conjunctions. I haven’t discussed any further angles of interest yet! Stay tuned as they say…
