Mercury, heady stuff

How do you tell an accused murderer how to blend his head with his heart?

His emotions (Moon in Sagittarius) are telling him, “It’s all cool, man” and his mind (Mercury in Virgo) is telling him, “Get the details right, don’t miss the detail, man.” It’s all hard left, right, then front and centre.

The heart and the head are at odds (90degrees off in fact – they are in square aspect) irrational at one moment, and logical the next. How to blend the head and the heart is a constant struggle for such an individual.  Makes me wonder if perhaps he might be a tad dyslexic.

The hard aspect of a square of the Moon and Mercury generates irrational and rational thoughts and feelings. This may not be obvious to anyone who doesn’t have an intimate knowledge of the person as it’s pretty much something that takes place “upstairs” in the mind.

Fantasy and reality would tend to blur, when under stress.

Oh what a tangled web he weaves.

Sun and Moon combo

The first thing I look at with this horoscope for Gerard Baden-Clay is the combination of a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Sagittarius.  This would produce a dreamer who thinks in large broad terms; a Virgo who consistently belies the nature of the sign. Virgo by nature is usually quite practical.

With this luminary (Sun and Moon) mix he would be capable of doing things that he probably disapproves of (morally or ethically) for the sake of adventure, romance, and excitement. He is definitely not a classic Virgo possessing a focused mind. IMO – many of the thoughts that run though his head bear little connection to everyday life.

Instead of looking inside himself, he seems to hold preconceived notions of what he is or would like to be. GBC can be so idealistic at times that it will be hard for anyone to meet his expectations.

He can spend a good part of his life just daydreaming so his present incarceration provides plenty of time to fulfill this need.

The accused’s challenge will always be to control his restless nature and concentrate on things that have true relevancy. He would have a tendency toward bluntness in dealing with other people and often they would take a tactless comment much more personally than was intended. Human sensitivities are something that he has difficulty understanding.

He can be very dramatic in all his actions, and likely has a good talent for acting. This being second nature to him would make his assessment within the Arthur Gorrie Corrective Centre a challenge for the prosecution’s team of behavioural psychiatrists and psychologists.
