Three little pigs

Nigel Baden-Clay is quoted as saying that the family relocated to Australia, as it was a safer place to live.  In a general sense I can understand this, however I came to wondering what does ‘safety’ mean to this man. The Baden-Clay family were not refugees, freeing a war zone or an unstable regime.

There is a history of relocation with Nigel Baden-Clay and his family when there has been political change.  In 1972 when the independent country, Zambia (ex British colony, Northern Rhodesia) looked like they were going to close the borders with their colonial neighbour Rhodesia, the Baden-Clay family moved south.  Their eldest son, Gerard Baden-Clay was just two years old.

When Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) gained independence from Britain, they ‘upped sticks’ again and moved to Australia in late 1980. The colonial life was coming to an end in Africa. Uranus is the planet ruling these political changes and also the indicator of moving home in a horoscope wheel.

In August 1980 Uranus was 20 degrees Scorpio; transiting the Midheaven of Nigel Baden-Clay.

This transit indicates the immediacy for change, both in the career sector of the 10th house and also mirroring for the cusp of the 4th house, relocating the home.  His wife Elaine was being pushed even harder.  The Uranus transit was in quindecile aspect to both her natal Sun and Uranus.  She was compulsive to the point of obsessive about change.  It was time to go.

As to the safety element, that does not show in the horoscope wheels of the parents of the accused, Gerard Baden-Clay.  Nigel Baden-Clay’ natal Sun is in Aquarius (the ruling planet being Uranus); change should not be difficult for him. Both he and his wife have Uranus ruling their Ascendant. Why did the head of this family need to move in order to feel safe?

Independence, for an emerging nation was, in these two African countries, a separation from the ‘mother country’; from Britain.  Perhaps the young Nigel Clay suffered separation anxiety from his mother when he was sent off to boarding school as a child. The independence of his homeland would be enough to ‘set off’ any childhood anxiety concerns.   Unfortunately, we are not privy to information in this regard.

Another alternative might be that they felt under threat of being thrown off their land, which is the reasoning of some colonials for their migration, however an insurance salesman would not have been in an agricultural environment in all likehood. Was his first house made of straw and his second of wood perhaps?

For safety to be the motivator, we need to look elsewhere; ask more probing questions. Why not relocate for reasons such as ‘to have a better life’ or that ‘the economic opportunities were greater in such-and-such a place.’

To feel unsafe is a primal fear; a fear worthy of our exploration. It becomes part of the parenting model and is usually carried forward from the experiences of the parent or parents either as children themselves, or as part of their life experiences.  It is passed on to their children, who then need to process it into their own lives.

Is this a personal fear of Nigel Baden-Clay’s or a fear of nigelaine (husband and wife combination)?  What is the fear based on?

The family relocated from Africa to Australia in the last quarter of 1980.  Nigel Baden-Clay was 37 years old; wife Elaine was 36; eldest son was 10; daughter, 7 and the youngest, Adam was just about to turn 5.

This is the family unit, which crossed the Indian Ocean to arrive in Perth, Western Australia; who travelled east across the country to join fellow ex-pats in Melbourne for 8 months, before heading north to the Sunshine State.  The 1981 census had only 600 ex-Zimbabwe migrants living in Melbourne.  There had not been a mass-migration to our shores.

In astrological terms, safety relates to the Moon.  A child is safe in their mother’s arms or hidden in her skirts.  The Moon across many cultures is The Mother.  Despite the fact that the father is physical protector and usually the bread-winner, mother usually provides the psychological security for a small child.

In astrology, the zodiac sign connected to the Moon is Cancer, the 4th sign of the zodiac.  That is after Aries, Taurus and Gemini.  Being the 4th sign, Cancer is the natural ruler of the 4th house, the family; the hearth.  Of course, we don’t all have Cancer ruling our 4th house and so there are often more reigning needs in relation to our home-life.  All these variables are what make the patchwork of our lives so interesting.

We know already that Cancer is a water sign; that I’m always going on about go-with-the-flow and how Cancer is a river. Well Cancer has lots more jobs to do of course and one of them is security.  Think in terms of the crab itself. The symbol for the zodiac sign of Cancer is a crab.  This precious little crustacean carries it’s house around with it; the shell is it’s security; it believes it is vulnerable without it; that it has no thick skin to protect it etc. etc.

If the ‘Three Little Pigs’ story left an impact on you when you were little, you can bet your little piggy-bank, that the zodiac sign Cancer plays a significant role in your horoscope!

When we look at the natal horoscope for Nigel Baden-Clay, we note that the zodiac sign of Cancer is at the cusp of the 6th house and that the planet Jupiter, is also in the 6th house, in Cancer.

We know that Jupiter inflates whatever it touches and the 6th house is an individual’s attitude towards work. That’s not the line of work, nor the work itself, but the attitude towards work. This man sees security as being earned by the day-to-day work ethic; he is a ‘work-horse.’

Jupiter is a major player in this man’s horoscope.  Jupiter holds his corner up in the water element ‘grand trine’ of Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio. The other corners of the triangle are Venus in the 1st house and his Midheaven (cusp of the career house). When we have a ‘grand trine’ in a horoscope, we have a self-serving, self-sufficient unit.  Stressed, the crab would retreat into his shell and focus on his work; close the office door; hide in his den.

An astrological ‘grand trine’ usually sits quietly in our lives as seen by others, until we are put under stress. This is the resource that enables individuals to get through difficult emotional periods in their lives without cracking at the seams or falling apart.  As to which element it is in (water, earth, fire or air), determines how the individual handles the stress.

Being in the element of water indicates that, when under stress, Nigel Baden-Clay appears to be very calm and detached from the drama being played out; the drama that his life is at the moment; that his eldest son stands accused of murdering his wife and is in remand; that number-one-son is locked up in the Arthur Gorrie Correctional Facility.

A psychologist will join with an astrologer to tell you that retreating into a grand trine; or a crab’s shell; or denial is only superficial to the human psyche; it is just skin deep. The stress will be bouncing off the walls of the trine internally.

A therapist will add here, that being in the realm of emotions (the astrological water element), we can expect to see skin eruptions, eczema, dermatitis and such, starting to surface. The toxins will find a release – if not through the skin, then the individual’s water-works will break down. Look out prostate!

The body processes, what the mind cannot.

From an astrological point of view, Nigel Baden-Clay’s idea of security is driven by his work ethic, whereas when we refer to the nigelaine bi-wheels we see that the motivator to relocate for safety reasons is more likely driven by his wife (her Moon’s in the 5th house); a maternal reigning need for the security of her children.

If he were not a husband and father, astrology indicates that Nigel Baden-Clay would have not left the African continent, but that’s not the lot he drew from the barrel.  That’s not how the dice fell.

Unless we are dealing with a man who fears the political change (pigs and wolves curdle the custard I’m told), in my opinion this is not a man who would allow his wife’s words, we are relocating for a safer place to live, to speak through him.  That Aries Moon of his would not allow it.  He is bwana!

Perhaps Nigel Baden-Clay felt the need to hide his real intentions of wanting to leave the newly independent, Zimbabwe. I have to ask, “What’s wrong with declaring that the move is driven by a desire for ‘a better economic future’ for your family?”  We turn to astrology for an answer.

Aha! It’s the trickster at work again. Oh heavens to Betsy, Nigel just leave off with the damn Gemini act will you?

 Note: You have to run with the wolves sometimes, in order to understand the wolf model.  Tricksters are no different.

Bwana has both Uranus and Saturn in Gemini in his horoscope.  Why am I not surprised?

The relocation agenda is Uranus and the Saturn is the authoritarian.  So in Nigel Baden-Clay’s model of the world, this is a ‘tricky’ situation.

For an astrological interpretation, we can propose that the (Saturn) authorities eg. Australian immigration, may ‘get tricky’ if he were to declare anything other than that ‘Australia would be a safer place to live’ in his application.   His Aries Moon would not be prepared to run the risk of refusal of the application and nor would the 1st house Sun; his ego.

Remember this is also a man who believes he is above the law… very tricky.

As to Uranus’ input – well that’s the change of residence; the move.  That would have to be tricky in some way as well.  We don’t know, although it’s bound to be in some way related to the completion of the forms or the interview. With Gemini’s ruling planet being Mercury, we know that Mercury’s agenda is always about communication. Porky pies perhaps?

What is a marriage enhancement facilitator?  Nigel Baden-Clay, father of the accused Gerard Baden-Clay prides himself as being just that – big-game hunter, conservationist and marriage enhancement facilitator.  What?  Whose eyes are you trying to slip the wool over?  Big-game hunter and conservationist! That’s got to be an oxymoron before we even start.  Alarm bells are sounding; watch out for the banana skins!

What a gift!  Nigel Baden-Clay has the audacity to refer to himself as a marriage enhancement facilitator. Maybe that’s part of the conservationist tag and I should give him the benefit of the doubt.  Perhaps if he put it around the other way – big-game hunter, marriage enhancement facilitator and conservationist, I might have been more likely to be sympathetic to his cause, but no that would be worse wouldn’t it, as it turns out.

I bet some fancy PR person dreamed up that title ‘marriage enhancement facilitator’.  Reminds me of the ‘sanitary engineers’ tag and political correctness gone mad.  In my day they were marriage guidance counselors and garbo’s (garbage collectors for the uninitiated), but hey who am I to criticise some PR person earning a quid.  It’s the inflated egos who actually believe that the title gives them power that are a worry.

Some individuals, given the label, actually believe that they have been given the power to hold over others, rather than be empowered themselves. We already know that Bwana is likely to be a law unto himself.  He would be likely to ‘improve’ on any guidelines he was given.  So let’s unpeel the banana; unpack the label of marriage enhancement facilitator and see how he might have processed it.  Sliced, mashed, or chomped?

I can already see a group of PR people sitting around the table, brainstorming.  The whiteboard is clean and ready to go; butcher’s paper is covering the communal altar; pens and pencils all lined up; electric sharpener at every corner. The facilitator writes the first word on the board – marriage.

We all know what that means as marriage is such a popular pastime, it’s a given demographic of its own. Most of us do it, don’t we?  There’s a bucket load of customers under that label, marriage; we don’t need to hustle up any more; there’s no need to reinvent the word.   Marriage is underscored with a solid black marker. It stays.

Guidance – we’re not in the Girl Guides anymore, we’re all grown up and besides who wants to be led along by a rope, not me. Sounds too much like the blind leading the blind.  Can’t we come up with something better?   Enhancement is an interesting word. Why can’t we use that instead?  If we put the two words together it opens up a whole new market.  Marriage enhancement makes it to the top of the list.

I look at it for a moment, hmm.  The combination of marriage and enhancement has sexual connotations.  Surely no-one would accept that combination, would they?  That’s just too obvious isn’t it?  Penis enhancement? Breast enhancement?   Some would think  – hey if the marriage is rocky, we just need to improve the sex don’t we?  And the word enhancement is all about size isn’t it?  Oh yes, that will appeal across the board.

We preach quality, but what everyone wants these days is, quantity.  More is better, better, best and more sex sells to every target demographic; hits the bulls-eye.  You’re right.  Keep enhancement – we can always plead innocent and just say we want to make it ‘all better’; be mummy and put on a band-aid.  Or we could even be a tad righteous and say that we will make the marriage ‘get better’, as in healed.  I get my proposal across – marriage enhancement gets the tick of approval. Underscore!

So what else?  Counselor sounds too much like there’s a psychologist involved; that there is something wrong with me. There’s also that sneaky little ‘sell-or’ on the end of the word.  We need to disguise that selling bit. The public is also starting to get wise about accreditations.  You only need to do a weekend workshop these days to hang out a shingle as a counselor.  How about a facilitator?

Now that’s just facile!  I know, but it sounds good and giving someone the title of facilitator gets all those wanna-be teachers in – another lot who haven’t got any accreditation.  Controllers, you mean! Yeah, someone who wants to be out the front as the centre of attention; at the whiteboard with a big stick; probably a bwana type person telling us how to be a success at the marriage game.  I win! Up on the whiteboard and underscored, are the three words Marriage Enhancement Facilitator.

Well that credibility went straight out the window for Nigel Baden-Clay didn’t it. Doesn’t say much for the course he did and claimed to be a director of. There’s another sneaky PR thing.  When you read the word, director you think someone is a director of a company, when in fact it was just another one of those fancy PR titles.  Baden-Clay senior claims to have held a directorship of an Australia-wide public company and religious organisation, which was de-registered in 2004.  I don’t think much of their PR team, so I’m not surprised it didn’t survive.

2004?  That was just in time for Bwana to change his shoes and jacket.  He’d struck gold. Number One son was on the rise and gave daddy a gold jacket to wear.   Onward, Christian soldiers.

Nigel Baden-Clay continued to refer to himself as a marriage enhancement facilitator right up to and including the aftermath of his son’s failure at marriage; beyond his son’s failure at being counseled by a marriage guidance counselor. Even after the murder of Number-One son’s wife Allison; the murder which his son, Gerard Baden-Clay stands accused of.  Have you no humility at all?

You entertained your son’s mistress in your home for four years during Gerard Baden-Clay’s marriage; as he made babies in the marriage bed. How’s that for high moral standards and upholding the tradition of marriage? Did you change the meaning of marriage vows to suit, as well?

After your son’s wife has been murdered you have acted as a go-between for your philandering son and his mistress. They have to ‘lay low for a while’, he says.  Now he stands accused of his wife’s murder. How far are you prepared to go?  Your role as a mentor, one would hope, is over.

How did this man, Nigel Baden-Clay come to see himself as a possible mentor for those whose marriages were in turmoil?  Let’s take a look at his astrological horoscope for clues as he appears to be a classic case for us all to learn from.

Have you ever heard of Chiron?  No, it’s not a planet; not a star either. Depending on which camp of astronomer’s you’re sitting with, Chiron is a planetoid, an asteroid, a comet or all three.

Chiron was not named until 1977 despite being around as a blip on the radar screen for more than a hundred years. In 1988 it suddenly became much brighter and therefore of more interest to astronomers. Then two years later it grew a tail. Have I peaked your interest? Did someone mention size or was it the bit of tail that worked?

Out there in our solar system, there are heaps of asteroids.  We usually only get to hear of them in the movies when the Earth is under threat from an asteroid crashing through our atmosphere and creating terror; one of our primal fears, annihilation.  But that aside, the Main Asteroid Belt is situated between Mars and Jupiter, whereas the Centaur group of asteroids is one more step farther away from the Sun. Their territory is between Jupiter and Neptune.

If you’re on my page, you’ll already be thinking, “Hey that’s not between a rock and a hard place, that’s between inflation (Jupiter) and fantasy (Neptune)!”

To reach the exalted status of a Centaur is beyond 99.9% of the asteroids banging around out there and creating as much impact as they can. In order to be classified as a Centaur, an asteroid’s orbit must cross the orbit of a major planet. Whether a Centaur completes this orbit erratically or not is irrelevant, we’re told.  So they can wobble their way around, that’s okay just as long as they get there.

Funny mob, these astronomers.  They must all sit around reading the Greek myths in their spare time, as that’s exactly how Centaurs behaved in ancient times; a rough and rowdy mob of mercenaries who created as much havoc as they could.  Boozed up on fermented berries and mead, they’d get the wobbles up as well.

In modern times, since we’ve had the technology to follow the paths of these asteroids, ‘2060 Chiron’ was observed to have fulfilled the criteria; ticked all the boxes. In mythology Chiron is the mentor of the Centaurs, so that’s probably how the asteroid was named.  As to the ‘ko’ symbol, that would be in honour of the discoverer, astronomer Charles Kowal.

The last time Chiron came anywhere near a major planet was about 1,300 years ago when it crossed Saturn’s path, millions of miles away from any impact threat. The next intersection is due with Uranus and again the planet will be far away from any threat of contact.  We don’t need to pack our bags yet as the diameter is just 240kms and it travels at less than 8kms per hour.  We have time to turn to astrology.

We can see the symbol for Chiron conjunct the nodal axis, in the zodiac sign of Leo and in the seventh house of the horoscope for Nigel Baden-Clay. The Sun is opposite in the first house and also conjunct the opposite node.

We can see immediately how Bwana was drawn to this ‘calling’. Chiron conjunct the nodal axis is a misguided need (inflated fantasy) to be a ‘healer’ in the public arena; we are in the seventh house of public relationships (marriage) however we are in Leo – that’s risky for a start – a sunny disposition yes, but we have lions and pride going on under the surface.  Look out for the roar, if you don’t do what he says.

Having the Sun-Node conjunction in opposition brings the ego into the fray.  In essence the ego is meant to learn from the mirror that Chiron holds up and heal thyself, however if we are to look at the nurturing aspect of this man, he has not heeded his mentor, Chiron.

In astrology Chiron is acknowledged as the ‘wounded healer’.  As soon as I read the story of Nigel Baden-Clay and the marriage enhancement facilitator tag, I knew that Chiron was bound to be in the picture.  To be a marriage guidance counselor is a healing role and we have a man here who apparently lacks the humility needed to be a healer. That’s Chiron’s job.

Many a person is attracted to that, which they need to learn.  Chiron is the major indicator in horoscopes of such individuals. If you were in his shoes, you would have to ask yourself, why would I, an insurance salesman, be drawn to wanting to be a marriage enhancement facilitator?  That fell on deaf ears; the ego won that round.

Cheiron is a Greek word that translates as ‘hand.’ Think chiropractic, a hands-on therapy or cheiromancy – palm reading; or even as the centerpiece on the logo of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons Foundation.  Yes, Chiron gets around, folks.  In mythology he is half man-half horse. The British Army Veterinary Corps’ badge is also Chiron at his best; a nice twist, I might add – the human-animal mix held in high esteem in a healing modality.

Grouping Chiron with the Centaurs was an error in judgment by the astronomers, I believe. It was assumed that because Chiron was half man-half horse, he must be the same as the Centaurs, who are also half man-half horse.   It looks like a Centaur therefore it must be a Centaur.  They skipped the bit about ‘acts like a Centaur’.

Chiron’s origins are far removed from the rough and ready lifestyle of the Centaurs in Greek mythology.  He always held a soft spot for them, however his DNA was different.

Chiron’s origin in mythology is the result of a union between the God Saturn, who was off chasing a bit of tail and a heavenly beauty. This is before Saturn grew that long beard and started wearing hooded robes and carrying a sickle.  He was a young buck at one stage.  He fancied one of Neptune’s daughters, Philyra who was a married woman, but that wasn’t going to stop this chap. He was one of the Gods wasn’t he!

Philyra made a bad decision in her attempt to avoid his advances.  She morphed into a mare and galloped off towards the sunset and freedom.  Not one to let a filly slip through his bit, Saturn did the obvious and morphed as well.  The stallion had his way with her, as you would expect. Just another conquest to him.

Pregnant and outcast by her husband, Philyra did it tough giving birth to a beast. Half man, half horse, Chiron’s only blessing was a gentle nature. His mother loved him still and trained him in the healing arts.

Chiron has the most wonderful reputation as the wise-hearted, most generous and kindest of characters in mythology. He holds the knowledge of herbal medicines, of music and the hunt. Among his teachers were Apollo and Artemis and his oracular skills were widely sought after. When there was trouble at Delphi, the Gods would turn to him. He is known to have mentored Achilles; to have taught Asclepius the skills of surgery and many, many others too. He was kindly to the travelers on the Argo, Jason and the Argonauts. The testimonies go on and on.

Hercules plays a starring role in the continuing saga of Chiron for, during a skirmish with a rowdy bunch of Centaurs – who were all scattering and heading for the hills at the time, Hercules carelessly wounded his friend and mentor, Chiron.  It wasn’t a deliberate act, but unfortunately the arrows Hercules had chosen to use on this particular day were coated with the blood of the monster Hydra and Hercules accidentally wounded Chiron in the knee. Arrows coated with the blood of the Hydra, as we would all know, are bound to cause painful wounds that will never heal.

And being an immortal, Chiron having a wound that would never heal, was a serious problem. He would never be able to heal from the wound caused by Hercules, and being immortal he could never die; caught between a rock and a hard place.

It is always interesting to note that people with Chiron in tension aspects in their horoscopes, invariably have a problem with their knees and suffer joint pain.

Double trouble Part 2

A quick recap…   John McCormick Jnr and (Lloyd) Eric Larsfolk disappeared without a trace on 24 August 1981 in Caledon, Ontario in Canada. The teenagers were last seen together at John’s home, by his sister Kim. The clock revealed the time as 5.30pm.

My previous post, Double Trouble Part 1 explored the planetary positions at the time of the boy’s births as well as a person of interest.  We explored the interaction of planetary positions at 5.30 and the interaction between the two times.

As a result of my inquiry I included a later time (about half an hour after sunset) as a second point of reference in our search for two lost souls.

In effect I made things more complicated for myself, however I trust it reinforces my method of revealing the events of that fateful night.  This second line of inquiry is referred to as ‘After dark’.

Astrology provides us with the backdrop of the zodiac and modern technology; the software produces the wheels.  The rest is math, astronomy and experience.

Astrology notes: The first thing we need to know is that when you’re in my company, the Ascendant – Descendant line is always horizontal on a horoscope wheel . Ascendant is on the left and Descendant on the right.   This is the basis from where we operate – a level playing field.

In the real world the horizon is determined by where in the world an individual is (distance from the equator) or where an event takes place. There’s probably a heap more science to working this out, but this is my handle on it.  We don’t need to know how to calculate it – the software engineers have done the math. Thanks Dennis.

In the charts my computer generates (Placidus system), instead of the horizon line moving, the software does the calculations and moves the MC/IC axis accordingly.  That means that the MC is rarely at the 12 o’clock point on a wheel (top centre).  On the wheels my computer produces, the line of the axis is in a heavier font, a darker line.

We just need to know that the angle of the axis can and does, vary quite a lot.  Thank goodness for technology is all I can say.

When the horizon was at 24 degrees Taurus a person of interest to this case, was born.  For our purposes, their ascendant is exactly that 24 degree Taurus – highlighted in green.  This is the first horoscope bi-wheel. The second shows us an ascendant of 10 degrees Capricorn, also highlighted in green.  The third is 18 degrees Pisces.

The image is of three bi-wheels, which have been flipped vertically in order to align the topsy-turvy world of an astrologer where north is at the bottom rather than the top, to the cartographer’s North – our maps system; all in alignment; north to north.

The first two bi-wheels relate to the time that the boys were last seen by John’s sister – 5.30 pm on 24 August and the third bi-wheel at a later time, After Dark.

The first bi-wheel on the left is from the perspective of the person (the inner-wheel) and the outer-wheel is a snapshot taken at 5.30pm – an event.  Note that the ascendant always belongs to the inner-wheel, the perspective.  In this case it is the POI, so what can the POI tell us about the event?

We know from the previous post that we have created the red line as a result of synchronicity between planets across a range of wheels and that the natal horoscope wheel of our POI has Mars on the red line and that Pluto and the Nodal axis straddle the red-line thereby creating a midpoint.  Those positions are highlighted for us to see again on the inner-wheel.

  • Natal Mars (on the red-line) = male energy, excessive force expended
  • Natal Pluto/Node midpoint (on the red-line) = Pluto, the death indicator creates a major impact on the public arena
  • At 5.30 that very same natal Pluto (inner-wheel) has received, by conjunction, the transiting nodal axis – family.  The death in the family is coming into alignment.  This is a personal matter not public.  It will play out on the public arena, however the matter is personal.
  • At 5.30 transiting Mars and node straddle the M.C. Mars/Node = confrontational action with a family member.
  • At 5.30 transiting Uranus is at the descendant.  Sudden changes are about to happen in a relationship.

It appears that this POI is a family member of one of the boys and from what the planetary indicators reveal, he is male; that he plays a part in their disappearance by a sudden change in behaviour; he will become confrontational and will use excessive force.

The second bi-wheel, from the clock on the wall’s perspective, tells us that by 5.30, we already know the events that are to follow that same night.

  • Transiting Sun/Mercury straddle the red-line. We could interpret this as another locator to where the boys lie, as the meaning of Sun/Mercury relates to who has the final word.
  • The transiting Node is conjunct the POI’s natal M.C. This family event will bring the POI into the public arena.
  • Transiting Neptune is on the red-line.  All is awry again.

I seem to remember a similar position of Neptune  when all was in awry – where we left off in the first post.  Neptune is another water indicator. I am reminded of the marshy swamps of the Camargue and Neptune.

The third bi-wheel confirms what Eric and John indicated to us earlier, that this is the time of their deaths.  The clock at approximately half an hour after sunset on 24 August, 1981 reveals in it’s interaction with the POI.

  • Transiting Saturn, the direction finder for a body is exact at the red-line of the POI.  This is the clincher indication.
  • Transiting Pluto is exact conjunct to the POI’s natal nodal axis. Death to a family member.

In my opinion as a result of the above planetary indicators, I cannot exclude the P.O.I  from the events of that evening at both locations.

I am obliged at this point to reveal the name of this individual for the sake of the innocent.  As at 2012 as I write this post, according to my source he is deceased.  The person of interest, the POI, is John McCormick Snr.  He is the father of one of the boys, John McCormick Jnr.

Now to find a way home…  Thanks to Google maps we now take the last step and superimpose the wheels over a map of the locality, centering the wheels at the point they refer to.  The 5.30 wheels – at the house and the After Dark wheels – at the location as given to me, of the farm vehicle (the Chevy).

I would prefer to double-check this second location and compare with the OPP original notes, however as this is not possible, I can only give an approximate location to where the second focus of recovery might be.  In hindsight, this second focus is my preference.

All three individuals have, in their own way shown us that Saturn points the way – not once, not twice, but three times.  That to me is perfect triangulation of the method I use of finding a lost soul or as is this case, two lost souls.  I will use just two wheels and store the rest, for they all point the same way and at the same degree.

From my method of location, the indications are that the bodies lie along one of these lines.  I would choose the second red-line and within the swamp of the protected forest.  My reasons are subjective, for it has been impossible not to have been touched myself, working with this case.

Eric led the way, let John Jnr hold our hand at the end.  I zoom in to where After Dark intersects the swamp within a swath of protected forest.  Allow me to share what I see, once I zoom in – I see a broken heart within the protected swath of forest, in the swamp.

If I were to choose a place for a memorial to these young hearts, it would be there.

RIP Lloyd Eric Larsfolk   RIP John McCormick Jnr.

Double trouble Part 1

Were you or I to take a trip to visit Niagara Falls, we would have a choice as to which side of the border we’d take our happy snaps from.  If we were to choose the Canadian side instead of the American, then I reckon we’d probably fly into Toronto, in the state of Ontario.

However we won’t be travelling down Highway 11; we won’t be hearing the roar of the volume of water, nor will our faces be moistened by the mist rising from the International Falls, we have other duties to perform.

Our focus is, according to Wikipedia, in the Regional Municipality of Peel within the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada; or if you prefer it in straight language, we are in Caledon, Ontario.  The Latitude is 43° N 52 and Longitude is 80° W 00.  We have another missing persons case. Double trouble.

This is a cold case, which has been brought to the public’s attention once again.  Due to the uniqueness of our research method, we have been asked to bring a fresh approach to finding the location of, what is more than likely, two lost souls.

The official investigating body is the Ontario Provincial Police, the OPP to you and I.  We might have been hoping for a hunk of a Mountie for company, but sadly not – they have federal work to do.

We’re out in the provinces in the company of regular Canadians. Good, law-abiding country folk.  I am in the online company of a person who tells me that they know more about this case than anyone outside of the OPP.  I have the information I need.

The local newspaper, The Caledon Enterprise reports:

On 24 August, 1981 two teenage boys disappeared without a trace from the McCormick family farm amongst a cloud of suspicion and mystery.

Weeks after the boys disappeared Bill Currie, a now retired OPP officer assigned to the case, said it was possible the boys had hitched a ride to the Toronto Exhibition and would come home soon.

“It wasn’t uncommon for kids to do this back then. I just thought they would come back.”                                                           

The boys names are John McCormick Jnr and (Lloyd) Eric Larsfolk.  Eric was 14  and John 15 years old when they disappeared.  Eric was new to Caledon; his family had only recently moved there.

On 24 August, not long after the boys had first met, Eric rode his bike down the road to John’s place telling his father he was off to watch some tv.  It was about 5pm. Sunset wasn’t due until just past 8.  John’s sister Kim was due to babysit nearby.  Her father, John Snr. gave her a lift. The boys were in the driveway outside the house as John worked on his van.  It was 5.30pm.

That is the last time Kim saw her brother, John or his friend, Eric.  They disappeared without a trace.

Giving way to winter, fall became the past and Eric and John Jr. remained missing. Police searched the McCormick property a number of times, with up to 60 officers scouring every inch of wooded area. In November 1981 police searched for any sign of the boys with a helicopter equipped with thermal vision.

The case has never really gone cold for there are too many people who care. Let our contribution be the ‘Aussies and the Canucks’, and while I’m being colloquial, I’d also like to get the friendly rivalry out of the way.

Yes, the bathwater does go down the plughole the other way round, depending on which hemisphere you are in – it’s not weird and when I flip a horoscope wheel to align north to north, it’s not because I’m down-under and Canada is north of the equator.  It’s the magic of our carpet here on planet Earth.

Astrology and cartography are askew of their own accord. I like to think of them as mirror images.  In astrology, North and South are reversed to what we know of in the real world, as is East and West.  North is at the bottom, South at the top; East is on the left and West on the right.

In my journey into forensic astrology, I just flip the astrology wheels vertically. North and North need to be in alignment. To date in my experience flipping vertically, works.  If I were getting East-West indicators in my observation, then I would consider flipping that way as well.  So far there has been no need to reinvent the wheel.

I follow three basic steps. They are all math and astronomy.  Nothing psychic is going on here. My computer software produces natal horoscopes; I follow up by creating computer generated bi-wheels and then I superimpose each of the flipped wheels over a local map of the land.  I then look for synchronicities.

Our first step in the process – here are the horoscope wheels of the individuals involved, a snapshot of the heavens at the time of their births – the planetary positions in the sky.  We have the date, place and time of birth on John Jnr; date and place for Eric but no time; and a third person, a Person of Interest – POI with their known date, place and time of birth.

Note: As a result of my enquiry, I have requested a fourth person’s birth data.  We await that information, however we can still continue with a result.  I have a gut feeling that there is another individual in this picture.

Note: Because we don’t have the time of Eric’s birth and I have no knowledge of his early life-experiences, I set the time as 12 midnight, as the clock ticked over to the day of his birth.  This is a traditionally accepted method.

I have highlighted, in pink the main planetary indicators, which we are looking for.  The heavy-weights of Pluto and Saturn are the usual suspects, although there is always an overall picture.  At this stage we are looking for synchronicities.

Once flipped we are already seeing a synchronicity. I have indicated this with a red line.

The charts have been flipped for John and the POI, however not Eric (remember we don’t have his time of birth). So the wheel on the left is flipped vertically; the one in the middle remains the same and the one on the right-hand side is flipped.

  • It amazes me every time, when we have an unknown time wheel.  The person inevitably has an input, albeit a subjective one. (that’s why I highlight in blue).

I have highlighted (in grey) the POI wheel with an extra area of interest, a midpoint picture of Pluto and nodal axis. We immediately have a mathematical synchronicity and we haven’t even left their birth times to include the time of their disappearance!

  • John has Saturn on the red line – Saturn points the way as a body locator.
  • John has Uranus on the red line – sudden changes/a bolt out of the blue and Pluto the death indicator is there also
  • Eric has a (subjective) Saturn on the red line – another directional locator
  • POI has Mars (on the red line) – Male energy, excessive force  expended
  • POI has Pluto/Nodal axis (on the red line)– Death indicator which creates a major impact on the public arena

Now we test it by bringing these wheels into the future.  Let’s start with Eric as he has a natal Moon in Aries. For those who are familiar with my posts, you will know that Aries Moon is a dominant personality, a need to be Number One in relationships and so we will honour his memory by allowing his voice to be heard first.

We know that the last time John’s sister Kim saw the boys was at 5.30 at the farmhouse and so we take a snapshot of the heavens at 5.30pm on 24 August, 1981 in Caledon, Ontario, Canada.

Note: I feel there is a later time and a slightly different setting which I want to inquire into as well.

Later that evening, the farm vehicle, an old Chevvy was found on a track some way from the house.  Its headlights were still on, which indicates to me that the time was after dark.  Experience tells me to run a second line of inquiry.

I’ll call this line of inquiry, ‘After Dark’.  I now take another snapshot of the heavenly bodies as they pass overhead about half an hour after sunset on that tragic night in August 1981.  So Eric, what can you tell us?

Eric is not going to lead us astray.  He understands the seriousness of the situation.  We’re not off on a fishing trip with a couple of young lads here.

I’ve highlighted the Ascendant points (left hand side) of each bi-wheel in green, so anyone can check that I don’t stray from the path.  The Ascendant highlighted in green is always the ascendant of the inner wheel, not the outer.

With these two wheels, the first is at 5.30 and the second is my second line of enquiry, a little later in the evening – ‘After Dark’.

  • At 5.30pm the Ascendant highlighted in green is Capricorn 10 degrees; the After Dark example is Pisces 18 degrees.

When we produce a bi-wheel it can be done from the ascendant point of either position – from the perspective of an event or from the perspective of an individual.  These two wheels are presented from the perspective of specific events on the night of 24 August.

I haven’t used Eric’s birth as a point of reference as we know the time is not accurate and therefore any result would be subjective.  No more blue highlighter needed from here on in.  We view through the eyes of clock time.

We immediately see that our red line, the angle is again brought to our attention; I doubt it will change now.  We have our red line, our direction finder.

The first bi-wheel above is the event of 5.30 as the inner wheel and the outer wheel is Eric’s natal wheel.  We have the view of the planets in the sky in real time.

  • We immediately see that Eric’s Saturn is right on the red line.  Saturn is renowned for pointing the direction to the location of a body.

The second bi-wheel is the inner wheel of the event ‘After Dark’ and the outer wheel is Eric’s natal wheel.  This is how we know the ‘After Dark’ time – Eric has shown us and John confirms this below.

  • Eric’s Uranus and Pluto are both at the Descendant – Uranus tells us there is sudden change and Pluto indicates death.

Note: the Descendant is on the right hand side in an astrology wheel (opposite to the Ascendant); again we are in mirror land – this is the West and sunset.

We have a well-known expression Down-Under – “At the going down of the sun we will remember them.”  This expression is a memory we carry forward of those fallen at the Battle of Gallipoli in WWI, however it remains a truth today.  The Descendant (opposite to the Ascendant) is a point of departure.

John Jnr’s input adds even more, as we have the time of his birth to work with so his natal wheel brings another ascendant into play.  Rather than reproduce all the wheels I’ll share three again as is my preference for triangulation and leave the other wheels for students of forensic astrology.

  • At 5.30 (first wheel on the left) Pluto was transiting overhead for John, conjunct his MC (midheaven)
  • At 5.30 the planet Mercury (communication) was transiting to conjunct John’s natal Uranus and Pluto (sudden changes in power)
  • At 5.30 the Moon is at the Nadir, the lowest point in the wheel.  A family connection is indicated.
  • From John’s perspective (the second, the middle wheel) these sudden, electric changes in power with communication are right on the red line.  This is in exact alignment with John’s natal Saturn, which we saw in his natal wheel (first set of wheels above) where Saturn lay directly on the red line.
  • The transiting Moon is at the John’s Descendant.  It is also in the sign of Cancer.  To an astrologer this would indicate that water is a possible resting place.

Mercury has more to say here, however we shall leave that alone for now.

  •  The third wheel (right hand side) at ‘After Dark’ we have the Midheaven aligning with John’s Jupiter  – Jupiter expands/inflates whatever it touches. He would have put up a strong (Jupiter) resistance.
  • We have John’s Saturn at the ascendant of After Dark opposite the Descendant.  He opposed his departure.
  • John’s Uranus and Pluto are at the descendant of After Dark – overpowered.
  • We have transiting Mercury in between (communication in the middle) Trying to talk a way out perhaps?
  • Neptune is at the Nadir – confusion, much is in awry.

We stop at this point, as it appears to be a possible time of the boys demise. 

I am sure that there have been many methods of research done in the past, which I am not aware of.  It is best that I don’t know until my enquiry is completed and so I won’t leave a place for comments below.  Your comments will have to wait until I have published Part 2.

Our next post can explore the Person of Interest and the possible location of the bodies.  By then we will hopefully have the further information, which will assist in my conclusions.
