Just one pill

… that’s all it took.

The side effects of taking Adderall or Vyvanse can be horrific for someone who has a history of ADD, ADHD and juvenile anger issues.  I suggest that such a case is our focus today.

Whether the medication was taken on prescription or not, Bryce Laspisa is not likely to be coming down from the after-effects according to his astrology chart.  The Lunar nodal axis indicating traumatic activity will no doubt be present.

We can suggest that there has been a loss of contact with reality according to his reported movements over a two-day period; his central nervous system was likely under stress after taking meds, his mental state severely impaired.

A candle light vigil is in progress as I write, a month later; no-one gives up hope while a loved one is missing.

It was midweek, about 10pm when a young man admitted to college friends that he had taken some ADHD medication after they had commented on his odd behaviour.  He’d just taken one pill, he said.

Drowsy-Driver_mediumBeing good friends, they took his car keys from him, but after a discussion with his mother on the phone, the keys were returned. Bryce even broke-up with his girlfriend before leaving town.

The teen was prepared to skip classes and head off home to Southern California early; there was no going to stop a family reunion for the Labor Day weekend, or so everyone thought.

Rumour and innuendo aside, around 11:30pm Bryce Laspisa left his apartment in Northern California to travel to his parents home south of Los Angeles; some 525 miles (845 kms) south via the I-5 highway; 7 hours plus, if you’re driving an SUV.

There was a Labor Day weekend ahead, however this was Wednesday night and we would expect him to be tucking into a home-cooked breakfast the following morning with his parents, however the nineteen year-old didn’t make it.  More than half way home, he ran out of gas.

The roadside assistance company sent an acknowledgement of the service call to the vehicle’s owner; his parents, by mid morning. Mother and son made contact by phone, however it would appear that son and brain did not return to regular contact.

By 7:15pm Bryce wasn’t picking up his calls. His parents filed a missing person’s report with police.  These days, a missing person report gets an accurate response as police can check a phone and ping the location straight away.

Where was Bryce? At a truck stop, police report.  He was still around the same area where he’d run out of petrol in the morning.  Time had melted into the ether.  In all likelihood he’d been in the area all day with debit card purchases for drinks and food showed local venues, he wasn’t in the truck stop the whole time.

Once located, the police spent some time with him and stayed until he contacted his parents to reassure them that he was ok.  The police report reads, ‘No further assistance needed and he reports nothing wrong with him’.

The missing person report is lifted and life supposedly returns to normal.  Bryce had told the police he was going to hang out with some friends for a while; probably needing some space.

By now it was 9:30pm and Bryce headed out onto the highway once more.  His parents had several brief contacts with him over the next few hours as he was on and off the highway.  It was now 24 hours since he had left his college apartment.

The last contact was at 2:08am; the GPS reading was that he’d be home by 3:25am if he kept going.  Bryce told his mother that he had left the I-5 and was going to take a nap in the car.

Castaic LakeAccording to his phone records, this call was made from the area where his abandoned vehicle was eventually found, however that’s not how things went down.  CCTV was watching.

2 hours 13 minutes later, Bryce cruised through the same corner and the same camera caught him again heading in the same direction as before, towards Castaic Lake.  It was now Friday 4:20am.

Timewise, after that we don’t know exactly what followed, although we do know that Bryce had to swerve around the gate in order to reach a public rest area and boat ramp; the access was closed at night.  It is possible that he may have lost control with this manouvre in the dark.  In Castaic, California it was a third quarter Moon; in the dying minutes of Gemini at 29°54”.  The Moon was about to enter her own soothing zodiac of Cancer, a water sign; go with the flow, she whispers.

At 5:30am and still before daylight, the Toyota Highlander was found, wrecked; having rolled into a ravine; no-one was in the vehicle. Bryce Laspisa’s personal effects were found intact, however the nineteen year-old has not been seen since.

article-2425453-1BEA5727000005DC-368_306x423We know that Bryce is astrology friendly; a Taurean tattoo with the date of his birth in roman numerals on his left shoulder.  He will be easy to identify when found and I’m sure a forensic astrology enquiry would be of interest to him.

What we have to add to his story is not accepted in a court of law, is pseudo scientific in origin and offered as suggestion only.  We use classic interpretation and symbolism.

As we are not privy to the time of Bryce’s birth, we shall rely on the event times for our enquiry.  We can generate bi-wheels (method); firstly for the last CCTV sighting and again when the wrecked vehicle is found and base our enquiry on these events.

We choose not to address a character analysis based on astrology for this 19 year-old; his family and friends would know his weaknesses, we do not need to highlight them.

Note that the inner wheel is the timed event at Castaic Lake and the outer wheel is the natal chart for Bryce Laspisa on each occasion. Immediately we are aware of the tension in these charts.  There are no fewer than five conjunctions creating pressure; a silent hysteria.

The first bi-wheel:

  • Transiting Neptune (turquoise) is at the cusp of the 8th house, the traditional point indicating a manner of exiting the earth plane – he is invisible/missing.
  • Transiting Neptune (hidden) is also square natal Venus (police) – SARs haven’t found him yet.
  • Transiting Uranus (sudden changes) conjunct Mars (personal action) – he is in control of his movements, if not his mental processes.
  • Transiting Saturn (grim reaper) conjunct Lunar nodal axis (a public place) intersects natal Jupiter (green) and Sun-Mercury (yellow) in the outer wheel.  We can only interpret this as a departure from life due to his actions, not by anyone else’s hand.

The second bi-wheel reveals a grand trine, sharing the internal state of confusion within Bryce Laspisa’s mind.  For those familiar with this blog and interested in astrology – there is considerable pent up energy, which has been trapped in corners of the trine.  The manner in which it is released is indicated by the green lines.  The answer is pretty obvious; there is only one solution.

The third bi-wheel is similar to the first, we’ve moved in time an hour and ten minutes.  This brings the transiting Moon into the Zodiac of Cancer and the houses have all progressed, unfolding the story.

SARS-LALunar nodal axis is at the angles now and it will not be long before Bryce’s natal Saturn will be at the Descendant; at sunrise.

Whether this is the point of departure or not, we are not at liberty to say.

Also with respect to the family, as I cannot provide hope for a positive outcome, we will not produce a map with locator angles, which might indicate a direction to follow.

We can say however, that he made for the dam wall, on foot.  Come home Bryce Laspisa; your family needs you.
