Christina Morris Pt.2 – on the scent

A month after the disappearance of Christina Morris, there is still no trace of what happened in Plano, Texas. From when we first started with this case in the first week of September until now, the flow of information has trickled in. See Part 1 for the background to this case.

CMMorrisThe knowledge that the content of those last texts sent to her live-in boyfriend Hunter Lee Foster, reveals that Christina appeared to have mislaid her house keys. We know that Foster was not acknowledging her texts as to whether he was at home to open the door for her should she head home.

It is 4am so we have to consider that his not replying is ‘fair enough’. Foster could well have been asleep, however the 23 year-old young woman would have been in a quandary; no doubt, distracted.

The reference to missing keys could also have been a ploy to get recognition from a self-centred partner; a reaction. We are obliged to consider other alternative scenarios of what may have happened at 4am; red herrings, or not.

  • Did Christina decide to ‘kill some time’ elsewhere until she was able to confirm that Foster was home so she could be sure that she’d get let-in to the house?
  • Did Christina’s cell-phone battery go flat after all the cell phone action leading her to seek out another phone to use; again to make sure that Foster was home before she set out for Fort Worth?

Turning our eyes heavenwards, we had discounted the aspect at the mid-heaven initially, where there were astrology indications of a professional recognition having taken place at 4am – transiting Uranus/Node = Midheaven at 17°Aries.

Surely at 4am, a seemingly coincidental meeting with someone she had crossed paths with in her job would not cut any ice with a savvy young woman. Note: Part of Christina’s job was to photograph applicants for a dating agency. Is this possibly what happened?

But before we go off chasing shadows, we must follow that initial testosterone scent; Christina’s ex-boyfriend and best mate of the boyfriend Hunter Lee Foster – Logan Prendergast.

We must reiterate here, that astrology is a pseudo science, is not accepted in a court of law and can only be considered as opinion.  We use computer software to reveal the astrology and are guided by traditional texts for the interpretation.

Aaron Logan Prendergast (Logan) born 16th March 1991 – ex boyfriend from high-school days from Allen; has also lived in Frisco.  Current address is not to hand and birth time unknown (noon used).

This young man has a Pisces Sun and a late Pisces or early Aries Moon.  I would suggest likely an Aries Moon (similar to Foster). It would appear that Christina likely has a preference for an assertive partner.

This combination of Sun and Moon produces an inner nature that differs greatly from the outer, projected personality. Its hard to strike a balance between a sense of inward peace and reactions that are quite impulsive, active and even aggressive.

With this mix there is generally a strong urge for personal advancement, fame or at least recognition, however the blend results in an individual whom may need greater confidence and inward incentives to realise their needs and desires.

It’s important for this type of person to avoid extremes in their life; understand the value of moderation and self-control. In many ways they would seem to be very assertive, competitive and determined, but in actual fact, they are not really as positive and sure of themselves as they appear. In some ways there is a good bit of bluff in the personality in an effort to support their need for independence.

Our first interpretation of his bi-wheel is that it isn’t jumping through the screen at us for attention. The hemisphere analysis is not indicating self-interest, plus natal Mars and Saturn are not in hard aspect from any of the transiting planets if we were looking for a perpetrator of a crime. However it’s not all roses either. Interpretation is needed.

  • Midpoint tr Moon (blue) = Jupiter/Lunar Node – meeting with others planned; pays off.  This midpoint is difficult to interpret, as the man could be asleep dreaming.  We have to interpret through the eyes of a possible perpetrator; in which case it could be suspicious.
  • tr Pluto quindecile natal Lunar South Node – a karmic obsession involving ethics/morals etc.  What goes around, comes around.  At this stage it is a mental process. in relation to a life-significant relationship.  Again possibly significant.
  • tr Mars conjunct natal Pluto in 4th house (home/heart) – the first of the forensic indicators
  • tr Uranus square natal Neptune (turquoise) – sudden changes indicating underhandedness in the realm of ethics and morals.
  • tr Mercury (yellow) opposite natal Sun – communication of personal wants that would support the ego

We need to look deeper into this chart for synchronicities.

  • tr asteroid Cupido #763 at 21°Gemini conjunct natal Mars in 11th house – needing love accentuated (Gemini gives us a hit of a possible liar to get what he wants – in the romance dept)

Family dynamics are always interesting to me and so when I noticed that this Prendergast family appear to be following the non-traditional use of the middle name in everyday use, I explored a little further and found the following members whom also have a story to tell.

Aaron Logan Prendergast has a brother whom is up on a sexual assault charge – arrested 18th October 2013.  His last court appearance was 15th August 2014. His name is Ryan Scott Prendergast (Scott) born 16th December 1989.

357-RSPrendergastThis 24 year-old has a difficult natal chart before we even look to his bi-wheel in relation to this case of Christina Morris’ disappearance.

His mid-range Moon (noon used for calculation) is conjunct his natal Lunar South Node 17°Leo – let’s sit him down and ask about the relationship with his mother. The under-developed emotional child will have lots to tell us, I’m sure.

Another conjunction of particular interest in the natal chart is Mercury-Saturn conjunct at 13°Capricorn. That would weigh heavily on him; cold and analytical together. Natal Chiron is opposite this conjunction at 14°Cancer.

  • tr Moon (blue) in the inner wheel is the midpoint for the Moon-Lunar south node plus natal Mercury-Saturn – driving need; crisis point focus. Splitting this midpoint into individual detail…
  • tr Moon = Lunar South Node/Saturn – showing precocious maturity; qualifying for responsibility PLUS
  • tr Moon = Lunar South Node/Mercury  – emotional impact/driving needs shared
  • tr Saturn conjunct natal Pluto in 4th house – primary forensic indicator PLUS
  • tr Saturn square natal Lunar nodal axis – traumatic event in a public venue involving 1-7th house axis – self and a public relationship.
  • tr Pluto conjunct natal Neptune (turquoise) – again a strong forensic indicator this time in the 6th house of morals and ethics; subterfuge at work and likely drugs involved.

Note: There are two flags we need to raise for further interpretation at some future point, if needed.

  • The new MDMA cocktail of chemicals that the young people are taking; a replacement for E. It is known as Molly.  Asteroid Little Molly/Mollypetit #20472 was transiting on that fateful night, exact by conjunction with this young man’s natal Lunar nodal axis at 17°Aquarius in the 7th house of relationships (not the 5th house of friends) and opposite to his mid-range Moon.
  • We also note that Scott’s natal Venus (pink) is exact that 3°Aquarius we were looking for…

There is another brother to Scott and Logan whom has a rap sheet; marijuana use.  His name is Franklin Pierce Prendergast (Pierce) born 7th July 1994.  Again we have a mid-range natal Moon (noon used).

357-F.PiercePrendergastWith all those 22 degrees in this natal chart we can suggest that this 20 year-old male has an ominous future, if what the Serbian astrologers tell us is correct.

  • tr Venus (pink) square natal Lunar nodal axis is exact the cusp of 5-11 houses; friends and enemies – a get together occasion. (Note siblings would be 3-9 axis)
  • tr Saturn quindecile natal Mars in that 11th house – a primary forensic indicator, however I think he’s possibly elsewhere; up to mischief. 
  • tr Pluto opposite natal Sun in 12th house – sudden prominence lead to changes in lifestyle considered.  PLUS
  • tr Uranus square natal Sun – urge for independence
  • tr Lunar South node (karma) quindecile natal Jupiter (green) – what goes around comes around; ‘chickens are coming home to roost’.
  • tr Jupiter (green) quindecile natal Uranus – moving on the ‘greener’ pastures

From this interpretation, I would suggest that Pierce was not on the scene when Christina disappeared. He is probably living in another city. However the plot thickens…

The father of the Prendergast boys has a record for misdemeanors, so having his data available I’ve checked his chart.  It would appear that he has at least knowledge of what’s going down, or is all of this a co-incidence? We can share his input to our story. Franklin S. Prendergast born 2nd June 1961 (birth time unknown).

357-FranklinPrendergastHow often is it that when we see a number it keeps coming up everywhere.  Am I being distracted by this phenomenon with 3°Aquarius?  I’m there again with this chart. We cannot accept that this man’s natal Moon being exact at 3°Aquarius, however it will be in range of the point of interest.

What is exact is the dangerous midpoint of natal Jupiter and Saturn; excessive control.

I’ve not explored midpoints further, however we have plenty of hard aspects present to explore.  Note that natal Saturn Rx is at the descendant (note Saturn retrograde phenomenon). This descendant is also quindecile natal Mars 14°Leo – has this man descended into depravity?

  • tr Moon (blue) square natal Saturn 29°Capricorn at cusp 7th house – ambition; exit strategies under consideration.
  • tr Sun (orange) conjunct natal Pluto in 2nd house –   need to control uppermost   PLUS
  • tr Neptune (turquoise) is across the other side of the chart opposite natal Pluto – death matters on the agenda; assets being protected.
  • tr Jupiter (green) in the inner wheel square natal Neptune (turquoise) in 4th house/home – rumour and scandal abounds
  • tr Venus conjunct natal Uranus in 2nd house – input appreciated is the classic interpretation for this aspect  PLUS
  • tr Venus quindecile natal Jupiter in 7th house – considering flight is all I can say at this point.

Further notes:

  • Boyfriend Hunter Foster has natal Jupiter in hard aspect opposite 03°Aquarius – inflating the situation
  • Both Christine and Foster have natal Saturn at 03°Aquarius – self-control weaknesses, in common.
  • Fixed star Oculus in the constellation of Capricorn is at 03°Aquarius – what is the ‘sight’ clue?  Are they already under the microscope?  Was the car sighted?
  • tr asteroid Persephone #399 at 3°Aquarius conjunct natal Saturn 7th house – abduction indicator, however we note that Christina also has natal Saturn at this same degree and so we cannot necessarily consider this as identifying Prendergast as an abductor. This is just as well because he is indicating being swept into the dark underworld of drug use when Neptune is in transit  i.e. hanging around to influence him/
  • tr Asteroid Phaeton #3200 at 3°Gemini conjunct natal Mars and trine (working with) that 3°Aquarius – this identifies a vehicle (Phaeton = carriage vehicle) playing a part in this disappearance.

From this point we are stalled, awaiting the heavens to align.  This case continues here  in the inside pages.

Christina Marie Morris

It’s the eve of a long weekend; a trip out of town to meet up with old school friends with a planned stay-over. Then during the evening, a dozen text messages exchanged in a relationship spat leads to a change in plans. Everyone around Christina knows what’s going down. The boyfriend is informed that she’s heading back home. She tells friends, I’ll call you when I get there. Then silence – for FOUR days!

CMMorrisIt wasn’t the live-in boyfriend, or her friends, or her family that noticed.  It took her employer to pick up the phone and check on Christina’s whereabouts the following Tuesday when she didn’t turn up for work. Not the boyfriend; not the family, nor any of those whom claim to be so close to her had missed her. This is a vivacious 23 year-old we are talking about, not a remote hermit…

Law enforcement has shared very little; social media and Christina’s peers – even less. As we were on the case early, we were able to observe much of what went down.  It appears that personal agendas came before finding a missing young woman. What her companions had to hide, was well hidden. A facebook page set up to find her, slammed the door on many whom offered to help; a closed group.

The live-in boyfriend took a week to express any sort of remorse, apart from a statement on Christina’s social media account that she was missing. Aside from handing out flyers, even his media interview was supervised by family. This young man is not a teen living at home. He is 23 years old for heavens sake. He immediately goes to the top of the list of suspects in his girlfriend’s disappearance, for any sleuth.

Investigators comment that this live-in boyfriend is not a POI in Christina’s disappearance. In all, it is a sad state of affairs in the ‘Friendship State’ of Texas, as we turn to the heavens in an endeavour to make some sense of this mystery.

We make our usual disclaimer here, that astrology is a pseudo science.; that astrology interpretation is not accepted in a court of law and can only be taken as an opinion. We generate all charts with computer software with times gleaned from the public record and all interpretation is taken from classic texts.

14743512_StillChristina Marie Morris was born on 25th July 1991.  Last seen on CCTV in Plano Texas at 3:57:06am Saturday 30th August 2014.  Her male companion in the video had also parked in the same garage and so they had walked back together from a mutual friend’s party.

Christina didn’t get to unlock her car.  Her companion in the CCTV image? He has also been cleared by the investigation team as not being a person of interest. The circumstances as to why he didn’t escort her to her vehicle?  We do not know.

According to her mother, Christina wasn’t planning to go home that night and was expected to spend the night with friends, however following an argument on the phone with the boyfriend back in Fort Worth, she changed her mind. Christina had decided she wanted to go home and collect her dog.  It doesn’t take much to imagine the conversation – “I’m not going to look after your dog, while you’re off partying.” (or something similar)

It wasn’t until 11:17pm Tuesday evening, 2nd September 2014 that a missing person report was filed with LE. So it took until the fifth day for anything really constructive to get underway – starting interviews; checking CCTV footage; where cars were parked and people’s whereabouts; the when and where. Someone had a very lucky head-start.  We wind back the clock…

When we turn to the timed event, the first chart that we generate is a bi-wheel (method) from the perspective of the CCTV sighting with the outer wheel being the natal chart for Christina Morris.

Forensic indicators are immediately present.  There is virtually nothing above the horizon line; all action is in the shadows.

  • Transiting Uranus/Lunar South node = Midheaven – sudden relationships; likely indicating that a meeting was not pre-planned; well not too far in advance anyways.
  • Fixed star Aludra in the constellation of Canis Major is exact the ascendant at 28°Cancer.  Aludra is situated on the tail of the dog, so whomever this is they’re likely wagging their tail; indicating ‘happy to see you’ PLUS
  • Asteroid Alma #390 has one step into the 1st house at 0°Leo.  Is this Alma Mater an ex school friend wagging their tail, or has someone offered to take Christina to pick up her dog?

Note: Alma in Latin translates as Soul as well.  Is it someone whom believes that they are a soul mate of Christina’s?

  • Transiting asteroid Harvard #736 is conjunct Alma suggesting a relationship between these two asteroids with Christina herself as they are also conjunct her natal Sun – her physical self.  The reason will come out once we know more about the case.
  • Transiting Black Moon Lilith/mean apogee is conjunct her natal Jupiter, indicating excesses are the weakest point.
  • Transiting asteroid Persephone #399 at 3:13°Aquarius is also conjunct Christina’s natal Saturn.  This will apply to where she will likely be found among trees and leaves and I’ll explain why.

We know the myth of Persephone – she was stolen away from her mother Ceres by Hades.  Ceres was so grief-stricken at the loss of her daughter that she cursed a drought upon the earth.  Once Ceres learned where her daughter was, she did a deal with Hades whom had kidnapped her – that Persephone should spend half the year in the darkness with her husband and be returned to her mother in the Spring allowing all the trees to sprout new leaves.  She would return below the ground at the end of Summer.

  • Ascendant/natal Sun = Alma – testing the identity; recognitionWhomever is waiting for Christina is not a stranger to her.
  • We note both Lunar nodal axis are square each other – boxed in; in a public place; leading to a traumatic situation.
  • tr Sun (orange) is heavily in the mix – date on the calendar is auspicious for this crime; premeditation.
  • tr Sun (orange) in the inner wheel opposite natal Neptune (turquoise) in the 8th house.  Neptune is usually a flag for addictive substances/drugs/alcohol being a part of the crime; not just subterfuge by a perpetrator.  8th house is indicative of death/transformation/other people’s assets.
  • tr Sun conjunct natal Venus-Mars conjunction – strong physical attraction/sex.
  • tr Neptune (turquoise) opposite Venus-Mars conjunction – a dangerous liaison.
  • tr Moon (blue) square asteroid Alma plus Christina’s natal Chiron 0°Leo – driving need to heal wounds; smoke the peace pipe.

With hard Chiron-Moon aspects, there is a feeling of awkwardness about expressing one’s emotional needs. Christina has Mars conjunct Venus supporting this aspect.  We can suggest that she would easily tell others “I am really fine”, and then privately resent them when they can’t see the hollowness of that statement… There is a tendency to over-dramatize the emotions.

This can lead to an outpouring of feelings and then feel guilty or awkward about doing so and they then proceed to cover it up and avoid the issue. She may have been more distressed than she let on to her companion.

  • tr Saturn (grim reaper) conjunct natal Pluto 17°Scorpio in 4th house – a death has taken place; likely indoors.
  • tr Pluto conjunct natal Uranus in 6th house – sudden changes in power take place with a highlight on an intensification of ego awareness; danger.  This is also a primary forensic indicator.

Note the red line through the chart as a locator angle as we search for the missing person.

MAP-Plano-locatorclick on map for full size

As the priority is to locate Christina, we took the obvious next step (back in that first week in September) to align astrology to cartography (method), so we flipped the chart verticaly and superimposed it over a map of the land centered at the point of her disappearance.

Our locator angle extends onto the map indicating a direction to follow. This method is not intended as an ‘x’ marks the spot; more a direction to follow.  The indications are that she will be north, rather than south (not towards Fort Worth and home).

A week after Christina had disappeared, organised searches by authorities, locals and Texas EquuSearch using horses, feet on the ground and drones filming the region failed to find the missing young woman. We now take our astrology enquiry to the next level and view the two characters whom we have birth data for, prior to fleshing out Christina’s character.

By this, we can then get an idea of the sort of man she might be attracted to; a remote possibility of a dangerous liaison has to be explored.  We do not know if Christina did initially depart willingly, in the company of another male.

We nominate the following persons as persons of interest to our astrology enquiry.  We do not suggest that they are perpetrators of any crime, however we view their charts through the critical lens of forensic astrology looking for potential weaknesses in their astrology horoscope.

Identified in the media, Hunter Lee Foster born 13th April 1991, lives in Forth Worth.  There is a  ‘rap sheet’ on the public record for minor offenses –  marijuana use.  This is the live-in boyfriend of Christina Morris.

This young man has both Sun and Moon in Aries – a double dose of fire and it’s all about ‘me’, to the exclusion of everyone else.  Any wonder he didn’t answer those 15 calls from Christina prior to her disappearance when we know about this Sun-Moon mix.   She was out letting off steam with her friends overnight; partying in Plano.

Every idea put forth in the reading of his Aries Sun sign is intensified by the Aries Moon. Independence and self-confidence may be so intensified that they become a stumbling block in personal relationships. He is an individualist first, last, and always. Being extremely impatient with people, sometimes to the extent of being intolerant is openly expressed. People may view him as hard-boiled because of a tendency for his apparent lack of emotional input and likely judged as too matter-of-fact.

It’s painfully difficult for someone with this mix to listen to and understand the woes of others. Yet they can be demanding of the attention of those around them on those rare occasions when they disclose their personal problems. The need to develop qualities of tact and consideration for the feeling of others can impede progress.

There is a lot compatible in their synastry, however when we view his natal chart through the perspective of the disappearance of Christina Morris, his chart does not reveal any forensic indicators that we can point our finger at; well not direct involvement anyway.  We therefore do not include his chart at this time.

357-MorrisEscortThe other person whom is of interest is the companion whom walked Christina back to her car.  We have been provided with a birth date for Enrique Arochi; 12th March 1990.

We know from the midpoint of the transiting Sun/Moon (3°Libra) that the tension between the focus of the event of the disappearance is highly likely conjunct this young male’s natal Moon. If not exact, then it is absolutely; 100% under tension no matter what time of day or night that this young man was born.  His driving needs are uppermost.

A Pisces Sun and Libra Moon blends the emotional sensitivity and understanding of a Pisces, with the courtesy and friendliness of Libra. There is nothing base, crude, earthy, ugly or terribly heavy about this personality.  They are actually quite weak individuals in a social sense; at worst, cowardly.

Generally, people respond naturally to this mix of Sun and Moon because they freely offer a ready ear and a bright, optimistic outlook and non-threatening demeanor. They’re not known for taking action, but rather for planning and preparing.

A Pisces Moon has the driving need to be accepted for their sensitivity.  This young man is nothing like Christina’s boyfriends, when it comes to being assertive. If Christina had indicated that she was prepared to go her own way, a person with this Sun-Moon mix would have stepped back from any responsibility or assertiveness about insisting that he escort her to her car door.  Unless of course drugs were coursing through his veins; dutch courage.

We do have a synchronicity with the other case players with the gift of hindsight – natal Mars/Venus midpoint = 3°Aquarius.  We interpret this aspect as suggestive of inhibition on this occasion due to the fact that his ‘romantic nature’ is exact conjunct Christina’s natal Saturn. She would have not warmed to any romantic approach by this young man if he had offered it.

  • tr Sun (orange) quindecile natal Sun in 9th house (higher purpose) – transiting Sun identifies the date on the calendar.  The ego is obsessively seeking a higher purpose for his actions (or lack of, depending on your perspective).  PLUS
  • tr Mercury (yellow) opposite natal Sun (in 9th house) – ditto
  • tr Moon square natal Mars at the descendant/7th house of public relationships – driving need to take action.
  • tr Venus (pink) quindecile natal Venus – obsessive peer pressure.
  • natal Mars at the descendant is the most dangerous aspect; cusp of the 7th house of relationships and opposite the ascendant – macho man.

With the original midpoint for the event of the disappearance within range of this young man’s natal Moon, this suggest to me that he may have offered to drive Christina to collect her dog and she declined his offer.  Did Christina have other plans and he insisted?

Back to the asteroids and we note that Arochi’s Lunar nodal axis is also being nudged by Mollypetit #20472 at 17°Aquarius.  Any wonder it is the party drug of choice by this age-group.  This drug along with amphetamines will create trauma for many, I have no doubt, especially considering that the nodal axis is in the mix; creating trauma and anxiety.

CM-natalIf we now address the natal chart of Christina Morris, (updated 17th Oct. as we now have time of birth), you might ask two people to describe her character and get two opposing opinions; such is her chart. The only water element (emotions) planet is Pluto, suggesting that generally, only power or powerlessness likely stirs an emotional response.

The stellium of planets with the Moon (blue) are all in retrograde motion and so we must consider transferring the planets to the opposite side of the chart (symbolically), which then leaves us with the personal driving need of the Capricorn Moon directing all her actions.

Born with Sun in Leo and Moon in Capricorn, Christina appears to have a strong sense of what she expects out of life. There is a hard inner core that may keep her from being as sociable as many of those with the Leo Sun sign, are.  Making every effort to make a good impression by her appearance and demeanor is borne out by the change of clothes to suit the occasion. That’s the Leo Sun, however the Capricorn Moon can be calculating and ambitious.

A cheerful, good-natured exterior that rarely exposes this inner core of hardness and resolve is the face to the world.  She would not be not secretive exactly, but subtle in disclosing her plans and objectives. The public face rarely breaks away from the upbeat mask so if she were depressed, she may not show it. Having a great respect for herself, she would expect others to respect her, as well.

There is a Saturn retrograde present (the phenomenon) indicating an imbalance of paternal mentoring as a child which, in forensic astrology terms, can indicate a weakness in judgement of male character.

There is considerable obsessive/compulsive indications present (quindeciles).  Most of us have areas in our lives that generate such aspects.  It all depends on the interaction and realms that they manifest, whether they are healthy reactions or not.

  • Saturn 03°Aquarius quindecile Lunar South Node – compulsive actions with regard to karmic matters; cause and effect are not taken into consideration in realm of self control/boundaries.  (Note this is also where asteroid ‘Persephone’ is orbiting on the night that she disappeared – was she swept into the dark underworld?)
  • Neptune 14°Capricorn (turquoise) quindecile Chiron (those raw, wounded areas in our lives). This identifies a potentially disruptive intensification of creative, visionary, or escapist drive into drugs.  I.e. not listening to her inner voice.
  • Jupiter (green) 19°Leo quindecile Saturn – compulsively inflating that retrograde phenomenon weakness.

With no disrespect for a victim intended, we include the following for research purposes only.  Other hard aspects of interest to us in a forensic astrology enquiry are:

  • Jupiter as the midpoint of the Venus-Mars conjunction plus the  Sun – this can indicate someone whom enjoys the pleasure of male-female physical relationships without an emotional input/moral conscience.  Again at the price of the Saturn Rx in the natal chart.
  • Jupiter square Pluto – we know that anything square Pluto is reactionary and potentially explosive in nature; a thrust for power.
  • Sun opposite Saturn Rx – ego drives the self-control motor.
  • Natal Black Moon Lilith/mean apogee at 10°Capricorn is conjunct natal Uranus indicating her rebelliousness will likely be her weakest point; being part of the drug generation, her downfall.

It was at this point that we hit the pause button in this enquiry, until we learned that Christina had previously been in a long-standing relationship with Hunter Lee Foster’s best friend and had changed partners.

We are off on the scent of testosterone…  continued Part 2.
