Krystal Kenney

An example of the Cassandra syndrome and the Finger of Fate….

In behavioural terms, the assessment of a ‘Cassandra complex’ is based on the complexity of a person’s behaviour; a metaphor for a ‘moral conscience’ ie the person predicts that nothing good will come of what’s ahead and warns that punishment will follow and grief arise; as prophesized by Cassandra in the Greek myths. 

In contemporary psychological terms, the Cassandra complex is explained by a character’s need to point out moral infringements by prophecy.  Subsequent social consequence is driven by this moral conscience and also for the prophet to distance themselves from any moral responsibility. The origin of the aberration is invariably a conflicted ego.

Krystal Jean Kenney foretold, moralised, and participated in the plotting, lead-up, and aftermath of the murder of Kelsey Berreth. Kenney’s statement rests on (morally) distancing herself from the crime ‘she left clues for the investigators.

Meanwhile Kenney’s lover, Patrick Frazee awaits trial for the murder of Kelsey Berreth.

The asteroid #114 Kassandra (Latin translation of the Greek) has to be my first choice out of the toolbox for our astrology enquiry in the involvement of Krystal Kenney.

POI: Krystal Jean Kenney Lee
Location: Woodland Park, Colorado
CCTV footage: 11:15am 24th November 2018
The snapshot in time is shortly after the clean-up of the crime scene by Kenney; two days after the murder.

A snapshot of the pattern in the heavens can be interpreted with the hindsight and knowledge of Kenney’s version of events that is on the record. Our asteroids are selected accordingly.

Casanova #7328 – ‘ultimate’ lover
Eros #433 – God Of Love
Ixion #28978 – murderous rage
Juno Rx – jealousy and possessiveness
Kassandra #114 – psychological complex/syndrome/metaphor
Martir #1582 – martyrdom
Mjolnir #85585 – Thors hammer/murder weapon a baseball bat
Narcissus #37117 – excessive self-interest
Nessus #7066 – abuse of trust
Panacea #2878 – remedy for everything
Pyrrha #632 – fire/burning of the body

We note the boxed pattern of 4x 90degree angles of tension; all elements are locked-and-loaded. The trauma of the situation (Nodal Axis) 29°Cancer-Capricorn together with Uranus Rx 29°Aries and Mjolnir 28°Libra.

Note: Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome and powerful weapons in existence. In this crime, the murder weapon, a baseball bat wielded by the killer Patrick Frazee; Krystal Kenney’s lover.

Transiting Uranus Rx is particularly relevant to this case; creating desires to rebel, move on with life; generating frustration in those challenged by the tension of this transit. Krystal Kenney will have experienced transiting Uranus both direct and retrograde by conjunction with her Nodal axis for several months. But I’m getting ahead of myself…

So the locked and loaded pattern in the heavens indicates the potential of a traumatic event, sudden changes in behaviour, involving a weapon similar to a hammer (a baseball bat in this crime).

The next step in interpretation is to make note of the angles; time and place. In any interpretation, tension at the angles carry the most weight for interpretation.

  • At the angle of the IC, the cusp of the 4th house; 24°Taurus is illuminated by the fixed star Algol by conjunction.  Algol is named and feared as the indication of ‘a pile of corpses’; the devil-star by the ancients (Medusa). We also note the asteroids straddling the IC are Juno Rx 23°Taurus as well as Panacea-Narcissus both at 25°Taurus.
    So the cleanup operation by Kenney can be interpreted as having been an all-purpose remedy (Panacea) of excessive self-indulgence (Narcissus) as well as an act of possessiveness and jealousy’ (Juno Rx). If that’s not a deluded moral statement, I don’t know what is…

This tension at the IC has further significance in the overall pattern; the ‘finger of fate’, sometimes known as the finger of God in astrology texts; a YOD.

Note: A Yod is an astrological aspect pattern that involves any three planets or points in the horoscope that form an isosceles triangle. The Yod is formed when the two planets make a sextile aspect and the third planet is opposite their mid-point.
The pattern are two quincunx (disregard for the consequences of behaviour) focusing on a third point in the heavens.

The stellium at the IC is the primary focus/a yod formation of the midpoint of Venus-Kassandra (a female’s desires to prophetise) at 26°Libra; the cusp of the 9th house (fantasy) together with the asteroid Ixion (murderous rage) at 26°Sagittarius (demanding respect) in the 11th house of desiring love/friendship. We can be safe in considering that this tension could well indicate the ending of Kelsey Berreth’s life would solve all Kenney’s problems; a panacea in her search for the love of Patrick Frazee. She cleaned-up his mess.

  • There is a second Yod in this chart.

Venus-Kassandra is also the focus of Juno Rx-Panacea-Narcissus together with Chiron in Pisces bringing up the concept of sacrifice. This fulfils the self-fulfilling prophecy of Cassandra.

  • Plus… take a breath; there is the potential for a third Yod with the focus on 27°Cancer Pyrrha Rx (fire); the body was burned on the evening of 24th November) quincunx 26°Sagittarius Ixion (murder) and Martir 25°Aquarius. This combination brings all sorts of religious fervour to mind.
    • Asteroid Martir in the 1st house is also opposite Casanova and AP Fortuna (destiny). We could suggest a whiff of sulphur; a religious version of the master-slave dialectic is in the air. Martyrdom is a sacrificial act by the ego, in which the slave chooses to believe that their martyrdom ‘binds’ their master to them.

Uranus Rx at 29°Aries is also the echo (in the mirror) of Thor’s hammer – by opposition (due to the box pattern). That Kenney was the original instigator of using a baseball bat as the weapon, will likely come back to haunt her, as the method was taken up by her lover in the final deed of murder of the mother of his child.

  • The 6th house (cooperative effort) in this chart includes the asteroid Pyrrha (burning of the body) at 27°Cancer, which is opposite Vesta (concealment), This tension could likely relate to the concealment of the remains of the victim following the fire as Vesta is in the 12th house (the unknown).

Krystal Kenney and Patrick Frazee were born 2 weeks apart, and so we know that their individual driving needs (position of the Moon on the dates of their birth) will be illuminated in the mirror for each other. The relationship is one of reflecting needs of each other, rather than being on the same page; conjunct.

We also know from our original post, that Patrick Frazee has an afflicted natal Sun (ego); Sun-North Node conjunct in his natal chart (mother complex; oftentimes called ‘mommy’s boy’) and we are sure to find an equally challenging conflicted Sun/ego in Kenney’s natal chart; particularly when we know that the Cassandra ‘personality disorder’ is most commonly based on a ‘super ego’ development. The resulting stunted development results in an inflated moralistic stance; view of the world.

Both Frazee and Kenney have Saturn Rx in their natal pattern, indicating a lack of male mentoring in their early lives. The male mentors/fathers took a back seat for whatever reason .

Phew.. I’d hate to be inside Kenney’s version of reality – the pattern is very complex.

Krystal Kenney’s natal Sun is firstly conjoined with Eris (ego desires trouble and strife) at 14-15°Aries.  Plus  the natal Sun has a quindecile (compulsion/obsessive desire to fulfill personal ‘wants’) with her natal South Node, which then naturally mirrors the North Node-Martir 0-1°Taurus conjunction, across the axis. Immediately we must consider her early childhood development, and likely martyrdom issues with mom.

More on the Yod: To see one Yod is unusual, to see four in a chart is rare. There is likelihood to witness a personality disorder of some magnitude in this character’s behaviour.

Rather than being in a tug of war of two energies focusing on one influence, each yod pattern intensifies the quincunx/disregard for consequences; in this case multiplied by four…. And that is not taking into consideration any transits during this person’s life (note the chart at the beginning of this post contains yod patterns as well).

  • The first Yod we can interpret in the natal chart is that of a focus on asteroid 4:34°Leo; Casanova (a king among men). The quincunx (disregard for behaviour) of her ‘ideal man’ is Neptune at 5°Capricorn and Vesta at 5°Pisces. These potential weaknesses are that of Neptune representing delusion; subversive behaviour, and Vesta usually identifies either illegal acts, or hidden matters; rather than the benign interpretation of Vesta as ‘keeping the home fires burning’. There is romance in the mystery; self-delusion at the least.

Note: CCTV time11:15am chart for 24November 2018; above, reveals the the significance and synastry of Kenney’s participation in the murder of Kelsey Berreth. The horizontal axis of 3:30°Aquarius-Leo of the cctv chart is also the axis for the first Yod in Kenney’s natal chart. Natal Eros-Pandora straddle the ascendant (location) and natal asteroid Casanova is in the mirror at the descendant.

  • The second Yod has the focus on 6°Scorpio Pluto (power-powerlessness struggle in the realm of secrets). The disregard for her behaviour in this tension involves asteroid Atropos #273, which is a gamble with the Fates (Atropos is symbolic of the end of one’s life). The tension from Atropos-Panacea at 4:32°Aries and Black Moon Lilith/Mean Apogee (a mathematical point in a chart) 4°Gemini. The BML is always referred to as the weakest link in any chart.
  • The third Yod has the focus on Neptune at 5°Capricorn (delusion and the unknown) together with tension from BML 4°Gemini and Casanova 4°Leo (note yod 1 and 2 already include these two points = compounding the behaviour even further).
  • The fourth Yod has the focus on natal Black Moon Lilith/Mean Apogee. BML is at 4°Gemini with the tension coming from the malefic planets of Mars-Neptune (deluded action) and Pluto (power-powerlessness). This suggests that the notion/belief is between a rock and a hard place. To a reasoned mind, this is insane.

But of course there is more to interpret…

2-5°Aquarius Eros-Pandora is the midpoint of Neptune-Vesta and in the mirror of 4°Leo Casanova – opening Pandora’s box reveals love; or at least Kenney’s concept of what ‘love’ is (Eros is the Greek god of love), and so her participation in the crime can likely be explained away in within her belief system as ‘an act of love’. It’s all part of the moral stance of the ego.

20°Libra Narcissus quindecile Atropos-Panacea – obsession; ‘to the death’ – self-sacrifice for one’s beliefs.
20°Libra Narcissus quindecile Pholus – obsession with self to the exclusion of all others, is where mistakes are made. The moral stance is self above family, friends, social, or cultural norms.

The baseball bat; Mjolnir-Chiron 10°Gemini mirrors 9°Sagittarius Saturn Rx in the mirror. Inspired thought, or mental telepathy… Either way, both Patrick Frazee and Krystal Kenney were on the same wavelength in the choice of weapon that killed Kelsey Berreth.

As I write, Krystal Jean Kenney Lee awaits her time in the dock.

Previous posts in this case:

Dr Teleka Patrick

When the snows melt ….

Dr Teleka Patrick had graduated from med school in California and taken up a four-year residency in psychiatry at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.  With the world at her feet, we would not expect her life to go off the rails.

She has not been seen since the evening of Dec. 5, 2013, when she was dropped off at her car in the parking lot of Borgess Medical Center. Her gold-coloured 1997 Lexus ES300 was found later that night in a ditch along westbound I-94 near Portage, Indiana.  The accident was called in at 10:02 pm EST (9:02pm CST); Teleka Patrick was not found in her vehicle.

Bringing a fresh pair of eyes and some knowledge of belief systems to the story, we immediately note that Teleka appears to have constructed her own version of reality.  As the aspect of quindecile is absent from the following charts, I would suggest that this is not a case of obsessive-compulsive behaviour, we are more likely experiencing a psychosis-in-action.

TelekaIn September 2013, Pastor Marvin Sapp requested and was granted a personal-protection order against Teleka Patrick by a Kent County Circuit Court judge. In an affidavit that accompanied the request for a restraining order, Sapp said Patrick had joined his church, turned up at his home and made claims that he was her husband.

He also said he had in his possession more than 400 pages of communication from Patrick, none of which he responded to.

Teleka Patrick also wrote thousands of tweets on her twitter account, some of which implied that she and Pastor Sapp had a telepathic connection; often tweeting that Sapp’€s thoughts woke her up at night.   The night before she disappeared, Teleka apparently wrote that Sapp was communicating with her through a demonic power.€

This young woman appears to have a dysfunctional relationship with an Apollo archetype with Pastor Sapp being her ‘Apollo’.  We cannot consider this man to be a suspect in her disappearance – although I did check the charts for those who doubt.

On learning that Teleka has the middle name of Cassandra, we are not surprised at her concocted belief system/ psychosis.  In Greek mythology, Kassandra was the daughter of the King and Queen of Troy. Her name literally means, she who entangles men.

A common version of the Kassandra story is that Apollo, wanting to seduce her, granted the power of prophecy and then cursed her when he didn’t get his way. Or if you like, there’s the benign version – Kassandra fell asleep in a temple and snakes whispered in her ears so that she was able to hear the future.  Kassandra had the power of prophecy and the curse of never being believed; she died insane – in the realm of Greek mythology.

In Jungian psychology, there is a metaphor for the Cassandra syndrome; we can use those guidelines here, as we attempt to unravel the mystery with the toolkit of astrology.

The following charts are snapshots in time through which we view the tension between orbiting planets.  This manner of enquiry is commonly called ‘forensic astrology’. A forensic astrology enquiry is subjective and not accepted in a court of law; is suggestion based on classic astrology interpretation.

Portage, Indianaclick on charts for full size

We are likely witnessing a psychotic episode in the life of Teleka Patrick. The pattern in the heavens that night in December gives us an inkling of what might have been going on, in Teleka’s version of reality.

Uranus and Neptune are in full-flight in the heavens. They’re not a stable pair of planets to be directing any individual’s action at the best of times with Neptune symbolic of the realm of dreams/ the unconscious plus Uranus – sudden changes/manic activity.

  • Uranus is square Pluto (both red) – generating sudden changes/swings of power/powerlessness
  • Moon (blue) is opposite Jupiter (green) – inflating desires
  • Mercury (yellow) is square Neptune (turquoise) – creating demonic voices
  • Lunar nodal axis is at the MC/IC axis – a traumatic situation away from home
  • Saturn (red) is square the ascendant/personality – the grim reaper is present

We generate a bi-wheel (method) from the perspective of the time when a call was made to police  by a member of the public, reporting that a car was in a ditch off the I-94.  We then add Teleka’s natal chart to the story.    As we only have the one person in the enquiry, we may need to rely on midpoints for detail, however we generate our first chart and see how we go.

902-PatrickImmediately we note that the overall picture is in the lower half of the chart; hidden.  We also note that the natal chart (the planets in the outer wheel) are all on one side of the wheel; they have no planets on the opposite side of the chart to balance this person’s life.

This natal layout is traditionally called a fan, or a bucket without a handle.  Such an individual relies on others to motivate their action or transiting planets to nudge them along out in the real world.

We may wonder then, how Teleka might have achieved so much academically?  The answer is that there is no lack of tension internally.  An academic life is contained in a womb and structured accordingly. The framework was provided for Teleka to achieve her highest potential.  Not so out in the real world.

  • Natal Mars is square Pluto as well as Saturn.  That’s a drive for power and also control (of her own life).
  • Natal Jupiter is peregrinestrong opinions
  • Natal Uranus is peregrine – independent, changeable – unstable.

With a Leo Sun and Libran Moon, Teleka’s personality would have been sunny and apparently sociable, masking a difficult internal state.  How many of us really look beyond the exterior of those in our lives?

As for the interaction in the bi-wheel, apart from aspects already mentioned:

  • Transiting Mercury (internal voices) conjunct natal Jupiter – inflating the psychotic episode.
  • Transiting Sun (orange) square natal Mercury – we are unlikely to be able to interpret this aspect – it relates to the mental tumult and that particular date on the calendar.
  • Transiting Moon opposite natal Mars – mental activation (12th house) of driving need – lost in space.  Note: this is also our locator angle…

I suggest this last interpretation is due to geographical similarities.  In order to get onto the I-94 from the Borgess Medical Centre in Kalamazoo,  the road in the vicinity of the on-ramp is Portage Street.  There is also an area just south of the I-94 at that point; Portage, Michigan, which may hold significance for this young woman.

If we were to consider that a mental white-out then took place with Teleka heading westward on the I-94, we note that the place where her car ran off the road into a ditch was at Portage, Indiana.  Teleka was not familiar with that region of the US.

It wouldn’t take much to get confused – Michigan City is in the state of Indiana – she had not long passed that turn-off the highway. That would have been signposted.  Then another familiar name ‘Portage’ comes up on the signage.  The only problem is, Teleka Patrick is not in the state of Michigan; she is in Indiana.

Portagex2Once in the ditch and just east of the Porter/Burns Harbour exit, Teleka left her vehicle; presumably on foot.  I suggest that, in her confused mental state, the two destinations, “Portage” merged and Teleka set off to complete what she considered, an ‘interrupted’ journey; i.e. not realising the time gap.

Those more familiar with this case will, I am sure have an idea as to which direction she might be thinking that she was heading in, if she were in the state of Michigan rather than Indiana.  We are not privy to any private addresses.

We astrologers can only turn to the charts and a map of the land in an effort to suggest a direction to follow.  The aspects in the charts can give us a direction to follow.  In this case the indication is coming from the transiting Moon in opposition to her natal Mars. This suggests that Teleka is independent in her actions; flying solo.

MAP-PatrickWhen we convert the bi-wheel to align with cartography (method) just eastward of exit 22A on I-94 where she left her vehicle, we find that the locator angle points onto Highway 20/Melton Road – westbound.

We suspect that our missing person likely crossed the interstate to the southside.  Not being in a rational state of mind, we cannot expect rational action, nor can we make sense of her actions from that point forward.

The night was not bright by any means, with just a sliver of light from the Moon. She won’t have travelled far on foot and if there is no record of other persons sighting her, then I propose that she likely succumbed to the elements, that night.

As I write this blog entry, there’s four feet of snow on the ground in that part of the world. We cannot therefore expect searchers to come up with a result before the snows melt in the Spring;  a long wait for the family of Teleka Patrick.

ps: 10th April 2014 – Teleka’s body was recovered from a pond, close to where she left her car.  She didn’t make it across the highway.
