Caging the lion

Pt.3 in the Daniel Morcombe series...

the-lions-denIt may have been a surprise to Brett Peter Cowan, but it was no surprise to the boys in blue; the men and women of the Queensland Police Service.

The accused had been under constant surveillance for months as he paraded free as a bird, parrot on his shoulder in a caravan park in Western Australia.

Luring a predator with the potential of fresh meat brought the accused back to Queensland. The trap had been deliberately set and once the accused was back on home territory, it snapped shut. The Queensland Police Service arrested the prime suspect on 13 August, 2011. The boys had their man.

Despite a previous criminal record, on August 15, 2011, in the Brisbane Magistrates Court, Brett Peter Cowan pleaded not guilty to five charges: murder, deprivation of liberty, child stealing, indecent treatment of a child under 16, and interfering with a corpse.

Brett Peter Cowan has remained on remand since that date and currently is before a committal hearing of forensic evidence and eye-witness accounts. We await a magistrate’s deliberation to commit the accused to stand trial.

photoDanielInto the lions den Pt.1 was about the disappearance of Daniel and the recovery of his remains while Pt. 2 focussed on the accused.

This is the third in the series and will discuss the arrest of the accused.  Those who dedicated their time and effort, the boys in blue are deserving of our praise for their tireless hunt of a predator; a predator who is accused of the abduction and murder of a thirteen year-old boy, Daniel Morcombe.

Today we walk the talk; astrology-talk our way through the arrest.  We do not present any interpretation as anything other than a pseudo-scientific enquiry.  It is classic astrology and symbology.  So to the business at hand.

Please note that I am not using the triangulation method on this occasion.  The date of the arrest is the new information, a new snapshot for us to take; a freeze-frame of the planetary positions in the heavens at a specific point in time. An image frozen in time, which will no doubt reveal a perspective worthy of our enquiry.

  • We will use the same perspective as our previous two posts as this is the only horoscope with an accurate time of day.  This event is the time of the last sighting of Daniel, namely 2.10pm on 7th December, 2003.
  • We have the bi-wheel, which we used previously in Into the lion’s den Pt.2.  This bi-wheel is for purposes of comparison only.
  • We create a new bi-wheel with the outer wheel as the date of the arrest (in Brisbane) of the accused.  We do not have the time of arrest, however that is not necessary as we have our standpoint already at the time of disappearance of Daniel.
  • We can again utilise Google maps for locations.

abduction-arrestWe have a bi-wheel before us.  The inner wheel as the point of the last sighting of Daniel and the outer wheel the date of the arrest of the accused, Brett Peter Cowan.

Starting our interpretation of the planetary placements and their interaction, we step right into the fray.

The planet Mars is highlighted in blue; the boys in blue; ‘our warriors’ are in the outer wheel (the time of the arrest) and located in the shadows at the bottom of the wheel (undercover). We are in the third house of the astrology wheel (communication).

We can see that our planet Mars as ‘the warrior’ is in the zodiac sign of Cancer, the zodiac sign which indicates ‘going with the flow’.  Our warriors would not be interpreting ‘going with the flow’ as make it up as you go along.  You can betcha’ that this arrest is all about timing as Saturn (father time) in the inner wheel, is there backing up Mars.

Our next step is to follow the pink line across the bi-wheel as it intersects with Mercury (communication) in the inner wheel (the abduction) and then follows through to conjunct with the planet Pluto (death indicator) in the outer wheel.  We have Mars (the boys in blue) communicating about the abduction (reading the accused his rights) in relation to the death (Pluto) of a person, namely Daniel.

This is the arrest point by point. There is no other way of interpreting this alignment. The bars slam down; the predator is caged.

QPSStaying with our bi-wheel and taking one step to the right of our boys in blue; Mars, we notice that the planet Venus (symbolic of the seducer as explained earlier) is in the spotlight (the Sun-light).  Both Venus and the Sun are in the zodiac sign of Leo.  Pride is at stake; with honour we serve.

On the other side of the wheel to the left of the pink line, we see that the planet Neptune at 29 degrees Aquarius (at the time of the arrest) is exact conjunct the inner planet of Uranus.

Our interpretation of Neptune is usually symbolic of a ‘fantasy’ related event (drugs or dreams) and Uranus usually relates to sudden changes or modern technology.  In this case I would suggest that the accused is rudely awakened from a fantasy based in unreality; the fantasy that he had ‘got away with the crime’.

One last point of interest in this bi-wheel is more subjective than usual in that we do not have the actual time of the arrest and is therefore circumstantial. Jupiter and the Ascendant (in the outer wheel) are in conjunction at 9 degrees Taurus.  Jupiter is, on this occasion, representative of justice.  We can say justice is being served.

abduction-arrest2The point of this dual image is to visually compare the red line of the locator in the first image – planet Saturn (body locator) to Venus (seducer) with the new locator coloured pink – between Mars (QPS) and Pluto (death).

The lines are not at the same angle although they are not far apart either.  I trust that you are as curious as I am, as to whether there is any significance in this new angle.

The following is of interest, however it is an example of why the triangulation method should be adhered to in forensic astrology rather than using subjective information only.  As much as I choose to operate in authenticity, my unconscious mind is independent of my ethics and continues to subjectively seek out synchronicities.

As much as I have researched msm, I have not been able to determine whether Brett Peter Cowan travelled the 4,000kms from the caravan park in Western Australia to the point of his arrest in Brisbane, Queensland by road or by air.

The undercover operation would have been a nightmare if the journey had been taken by land across four Australian states and so as a subjective exercise, I have chosen Brisbane airport as his point of entry into Queensland.  It is a suggestion only.

MAP-Cowan arrestI was curious as to what this pink line on the new bi-wheel connecting the boys in blue to the arrest would tell us as a locator angle and so I followed my instinct and entered the realm of Google maps once again.

Producing a ‘suggested map’, I have drawn a pink line as the crow flies from the point of abduction of Daniel at the underpass at Kiel Mountain Road, Woombye to the Brisbane airport. (Click on the image for larger size if you want.)

Superimposing the flipped image (north aligned to north as a cartographer is required to do) we have the Arrest-Cowan bi-wheel flipped and centred over the abduction point.

Lo and behold, there it is – the same pink line from the bi-wheel is in alignment with the new locator angle.

You could have knocked me over with a crow’s feather, but then again the unconscious mind, when it gets together with the heavens, is far smarter than we conscious beings…


Into the lion’s den Pt.2

We discussed Daniel Morcombe, his abduction and the recovery of his possible remains in Into the lion’s den Pt.1.  This post today, is about the seducer.

We are dealing with an alleged predator of children; a man who stands accused of abduction and murder of a child.

What I am about to share is what the heavens tell us; the classical astrological interpretation of matters concerning the alleged abduction of Daniel Morcombe.  This is not intended as scientific evidence, nor does it claim to be.  Astrology is a pseudo-science.

Charged with murder, deprivation of liberty, child stealing, indecent treatment of a child under 16 and interfering with a corpse, alleged seducer Brett Peter Cowan stands before a magistrate in Brisbane, Queensland as I write.

As we await the outcome of a two-week committal hearing, we are aware of a mound of evidence gathered over many years.  It is a magistrate who will decide whether there is enough evidence to go to trial, not us.

Daniel Morcombe was last seen at 2.10pm on 7th December, 2003 on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

The sun was high in the sky; the summer heat meant that the lad would shade under the Kiel Mountain overpass as he waited; waited for a bus to go Christmas shopping in nearby Nambour.

What Daniel didn’t know, was that a predator was watching.  The bus was late and didn’t stop.  It may have seemed plausible to a 13 year-old lad to accept a proffered ride under the circumstances. The accused was living in Nambour at the time.  When we look at the astrological interpretation, some of what happened on that fateful Sunday afternoon reveals itself.

We have the date and time of the last sighting of Daniel; we have the date of birth of the accused; we have the date of the recovery of human remains.  That’s two events, which we can take a snapshot of; freeze-frame the position of the planets in the sky.  The third is the natal horoscope of a man who stands accused of these horrendous crimes.

We have three items for my triangulation methodology and Google maps as our cartographer.  That is enough to make a forensic astrology enquiry.

This map has two flags. Flag ‘A’ is the point of last sighting of Daniel and flag ‘B’ is as near as Google street view goes to the location nominated as the point of recovery of what is left of Daniel.

The end of the line is the location of where human remains, believed to be those of Daniel Morcombe, were found.

This point was retrieved by Google satellite view so the yellow line is, as the crow flies, a direct line between the two points of interest.  This yellow line is, what I nominate as, a location angle.  We now turn to the heavens for their input.

My computer software has generated a number of ‘snapshots’.  The first is the time of the abduction of Daniel at 2.10pm 7th December, 2003 and the second is the date of birth of the accused Brett Cowan.  We do not know the birth time for the accused and so the position of the Moon in the outer wheel is not to be relied on. The Moon’s position could vary by ~12 degrees in a 24 hour period, according to astronomy calculations.

Note: For those who need to know for their own studies, the snapshot of the outer wheel was taken at 12 midnight on the date Brett Cowan was born.  The Moon in the inner wheel is accurate to the time we are advised as the last sighting of Daniel.

That aside, we combine the two wheels into one and produce a third wheel; a bi-wheel with the time of the last sighting of Daniel as our base/perspective (inner wheel) and the outer wheel is the natal horoscope of the accused, Brett Cowan.

It is with some relief (probably all round) that I do not need to discuss the Saturn retrograde phenomenon; the nurturing phenomenon that relates to an absent male role model in a child’s life.

Brett Cowan does not have this indicator in his natal horoscope (nor does Daniel, as we would expect). On this occasion the accused cannot claim, with any credibility, to have been mistreated by his male role model.

Our first view of the bi-wheel reveals that the accused’s natal planet, Venus is at the bottom of the wheel (highlighted in yellow in the outer wheel).

There is no female under our microscope. The planet Venus is in her symbolic role here.  She represents the seducer.  Eve and the apple haunts me yet again.

Venus is positioned in the midnight position at the lowest point in the chart; the lowest ebb. We can interpret this in reality as Venus (the seducer) is in the shadows conjunct (in the company of) the inner wheel’s Saturn (the grim reaper).

Our enquiry continues as I draw your attention to the piece of the pie that is highlighted in orange, the 5th house of the wheel.  This is the house of the child, of fun and (as an adult) sexual activity.  The 5th house is supposedly where love is given to our friends and lovers.

This is the house that a predator would want to reside in.  No points for guessing what’s coming next…  We can see the accused’s natal Leo Sun is right there in the 5th house.

At this point in time, 2.10pm on 7th December, 2003, the accused was on the hunt for prey.

If I can keep your attention in the 5th house, notice that the inner wheel has the planet Jupiter in this house.  Jupiter accentuates all that it touches; makes everything bigger-than-life. Jupiter inflates a situation and as we are in the 5th house, we can expect everything to do with the 5th house to be accentuated.  This was the situation that Daniel innocently walked into that Sunday afternoon.

The accused Brett Cowan’s horoscope is the outer wheel.  In the 5th house we can see his Sun in Leo (ego of the lion, another predator); his Nodal axis is there (we are in a public arena/out in the street); his Mercury is also present (communicating).

To top it off, Jupiter, at the time of the alleged seduction, is exactly conjunct the accused’s Mercury (see the small black line).  The accused’s communication skills (Mercury) were grossly inflated (Jupiter).  I think we can go even further and suggest that lies are being told here.

On the opposite side of the bi-wheel, in the mirror of the accused’s 5th house Sun, we can see in the inner wheel (at the time when the bus went past) that the planet Uranus (sudden changes) determines the happening.  This long black line connects the two planets as a direct opposition.  There is no middle road here for Daniel apart from the possibility of a ride to his destination.  Children are not equipped to handle situations such as these.

This astrology aspect of the opposition reveals the intention of the accused – his ego (Sun) is going to make sudden changes (Uranus).

I have no desire to go deeper into this event.  That is enough of 5th house matters in relation to this bi-wheel at the time of the abduction. We have other issues to address.

Here we have two bi-wheels side by side.  On the left is the same bi-wheel referred to above and the second is the same bi-wheel flipped vertically.

This time we follow the yellow line; make that our focus.  Staying with the left hand wheel, we can see that the planet Pluto is highlighted in yellow and in the outer wheel (the natal horoscope of the accused).

Pluto is in the 6th house of the work ethic (the job at hand) and is exactly opposite (follow the yellow line) to Mars in the inner wheel (time of the alleged abduction) in the 12th house of the mind. This indicates that the accused’s mind focussed, is ‘on the job’.

This is the clincher aspect for us as forensic astrologers when interpreting a horoscope of a POI.

When in the realm of forensic astrolgy, Mars is the indicator of violence, of action and more, depending on the matter at hand; Pluto is the indication of a death and Saturn is usually the locator of a body.  We have all three in this bi-wheel.

In Greek mythology we know that Pluto is the God of the Underworld and that Saturn is Father Time.  The accused has Pluto (death on his agenda) and Mars (violence) plus Saturn (the timing is now).

There is no hesitation in my suggesting that, according to astrological indications, this person whose horoscope is the outer wheel of this bi-wheel is responsible for the death of Daniel.

The second bi-wheel on the right hand side is the same wheel we have discussed here, just flipped vertically for the purposes of our study.  In order to align an ‘astrology map’ with a cartographer’s map – north has to be at the top of both maps.

Astrology traditionally has north at the bottom so we need to flip the astrology wheel to be in alignment with a map of the terrain.

We superimpose the flipped bi-wheel of the time of the abduction and natal horoscope of the accused.

The bi-wheel is centred directly over the point of the alleged abduction with the red line connected to the locator angle.

The red line intersects Saturn and Venus again, just as we showed in Into the lion’s den Pt.1.  We have an identical situation.  All lions lead to Rome.

As to the arrest of the accused by the boys in blue, that requires a further conversation…   Caging the lion
