Ted Bundy

A normal birth was recorded at 10:35pm on 24th November,1946  in Burlington, Vermont; the given name, Theodore Robert Cowell. To you and I, Theodore Cowell is the serial killer Ted Bundy. His violent and sadistic killing sprees in the 1970’s led to his facing the full weight of the law and execution in Florida; 1989.

While reading his biography, and with my particular ‘bent’ being criminal behaviour, what caught my attention was a claim that he may have seduced and murdered an 8 year-old girl; stealing her from her home when he was just 14 years of age.

The following is an astrological enquiry of this possibility. The interpretation of two snapshots of the heavens according to time and place; plus the tension therein.

Victim: Ann Marie Burr (8 years-old). DOB 14th December 1952
5:30am 31st August 1961 – child missing

As the teen and child were known to each other, a synastry of their interaction can be made, however firstly we need to get a basic idea of the potential behaviour from the natal horoscope for Ted Bundy; a snapshot of the heavens in time and place, when he was born.

As the first 4 years of his life were an upheaval in the Cowell family’s behaviour with abundant lies about his birth and parentage, we can expect the lower hemisphere of his horoscope to be dominant; plus surely born during a Saturn retrograde.

Even a basic chart reveals a stellium in the 4th house (house of the mother, family, home etc).

As a result, we can expect an immature rage to be directed at his mother; developed in early life and carried into the future as his behavioural ‘norm’.

Note mother Eleanor Louise Cowell Bundy natal 25°Aquarius Mars Rx is exact her son’s Descendant/cusp of the 7th house. Her natal 13°Sagittarius Jupiter is exact his Mars.

With previous astrology interpretation of crimes of a similar nature, we have a fair idea of which asteroids to select for potential tension in his horoscope.

The natal pattern is not all that complicated, more-so overloaded with the mental fugue in the 4th house. The 4th house cusp is Scorpio with the natural ruler; Pluto (power/control). Scorpio is a water sign and signified by a pond. Scorpio tension is to agitate the water in order to avoid stagnation.  ie continually stirring emotions.

Natal chart for Ted Bundy with asteroids – 4th house stellium:

  • Venus – 20°Scorpio
  • Mercury – 24°Scorpio
  • Juno – 26°Scorpio (possessiveness/jealaousy)
  • Sun – 2°Sagittarius
  • Borasissi – 7°Sag #66652 (lies we tell ourselves in order to believe we are happy)
  • Madhatter – 9°Sag #6735 (mental fugue)
  • South Node – 12°Sag
  • Mars – 13°Sag
  • Ragazza – 15°Sag #1839 (young girl)
  • Moon – 17°Sag
  • Theodora – 20°Sag #440 (namesake)
  • BML/Mean Apogee – 22°Sag (weakest link in a chart)
  • Casanova – 22°Sag #7328 (a man who is passionate about women and has many lovers eg a Don Juan)

The 4th house detail:

  • Venus/Juno=Mercury is a midpoint with the focus being communication (Mercury) with the combination of Venus (female) and Juno (possession/jealousy). Note: This is the aspect that Bundy spoke of in later years – he desired to possess his victims; to incorporate them into his being in order to ‘make sense of’ the idealisation (Venus-Mercury) of inter-sexual relationships (Juno).
  • Juno is also quindecile North Node. This interprets as the jealousy/possessiveness as obsessive in relation to the relationship with his mother.
    • Note: at age 5, mother Louise Cowell married and began a family with Ted Bundy’s step-father. Thereafter Ted Bundy remained aloof from his extended family.
    • With a Saturn Rx, Ted Bundy would have lacked male mentoring from the Cowell grandfather and his jealousy/possessive obsession with his mother meant that he would not have taken any mentoring approach from his step-father who came into his life at the age of 5 until he left home.
    • This social isolation becomes sociopathic behaviour over time and manifests in a lack of understanding of accepted norms in behaviour, between the sexes.
  • Natal Mars(where action is taken/played out) 10-12-14°Gemini – Narcissus Rx/Lie Rx=North Node – lies and self-interest behaviour internalised by family experience. Note this aspect is also mirrors his mother’s natal 13°Sagittarius; Jupiter (i.e. inflated by her behaviour).

There are several midpoint features in the 4th house. Of interest is the Sun/Casanova-BML = South Node-Mars at 12-13°Sagittarius. Ego fulfillment by performing his Casanova role.

  • Bringing Borasissi at 7°Sagittarius into the pattern, we have a male who chooses to believe that he is Mr Charming – Borasissi invariably reminds us of the lies we tell ourselves in order maintain happiness and the BML is the weakest link in any chart.
    • Basically Ted Bundy likely believed his own self-generated mythology in order to fulfill his desires for himself.

5th house of ‘entertainment’ – we note Pallas-Sado-Vertex all exact at 17°Capricorn. Pallas is symbolic of inner stamina; Sado=sadism and Vertex- significant life-changing event.

6th house (where we cooperate with others) Ceres (personal appetite) 9:57°Aquarius mirrors AP Fortuna (destiny) 9:36°Leo in the 12th house (the mind).

10th house (career – public face): 10-12-14°Gemini Lie-Narcissus-North Node. This self-interest likely explains the personal desire to study Psychology and also start Law. All of which mirror his stellium of madness in the 4th house.

  • 20:29°Gemini; Uranus mirrors 20°Sagittarius – asteroid Theodora (namesake)
  • Uranus is also quincunx Venus Rx at 20°Scorpio.

12th house (hidden from sight – eg the mind) Saturn Rx is conjunct at 8:52°Leo and Pluto Rx 13:31°Leo make up the trinity with his destiny (AP Fortuna) of mental control/power being a sense of pride. Mind- power is his private commune.

31 August 1961

  • Note: Ted Bundy was still 14 years old and living at home. His mother was pregnant.

Ted Bundy Solar Arc progression to 31 August 1961:

When we check the Solar Arc progression for this time, we have all the malefic indications that he was active. Saturn and Pluto now straddle his ascendant – power and control at peak performance.

  • Natal Sun is now exact natal Moon – desires of ego and needs are united
  • Mercury is now exact asteroid Madhatter
  • Narcissus Rx/Lie Rx=North Node -self-interest and lying behaviour are now conjunct the cusp of the 11th house mirroring and therefore in need of the 5th house agenda (entertainment)

Transits for 31August 1961 (5:30am) from the perspective of Bundy’s natal chart.

First thing to jump through the screen is that the angles are identical to the birth time of Ted Bundy; both axes. ie – the heavens have aligned, despite the relocation from Pennsylvania to Washington State. Time, place, motive and opportunity, are everything.

  • Transiting Uranus is exact the North Node and conjunct the ascendant – sudden changes in behaviour at the location. The classic interpretation is ‘showtime’ when Uranus is at the ascendant for an incident, while the North Node indicates the trauma that the incident became.
  • The star Regulus is at the horizon –  the lion king on his throne
  • The Sun is exact Pluto at 7°Virgo in the heavens – illuminating egoic power and control.
  • Transiting Mars at 9°Libra is conjunct natal Neptune – subversive act undertaken by Bundy
  • SaturnRx at 23°Capricorn is quindecile natal Saturn-AP Fortuna – obsession with ambition and destiny
  • Transiting Jupiter at 29°Capricorn is quindecile natal Pluto inflated obsession with power.
  • Transiting Moon at 20°Taurus mirrors natal Venus Rx – personal needs highlighted in relation to ‘the feminine mystique’
  • Transiting Sado exact natal Saturn-AP Fortuna – sadism drives the ambition
  • Transiting AP Fortuna for 5:30am is exact natal Theodora – belief in destiny

As if that is not enough to convince us that Ted Bundy was responsibile for the demise of Ann Marie Burr, we can interpret the synastry between the two birth charts; again from the perspective of Ted Bundy as we have his time of birth.

Synastry/relationship between the two birth charts of Ted Bundy and Ann Marie Burr

Death would have been violent

  • His 13°Leo Pluto is exact her Lunar Nodal South Node and also square his Jupiter.
    • Note that the child’s Pluto = Bundy’s mother’s LNA (for followers of karma the cycle has continued)
  • His 4th house is conjunct her mid-range Moon – signifies the emotive connection between the two children.
  • His Venus-Mercury idealism problem is exact her asteroid Theodor-Narcissus she likely identified his self-interest as being part of the idealism challenge.
  • His Juno is exact her asteroid Madhatter. Note: It is crazy to attempt to interpret this aspect in an 8year-old’s psyche.
  • His Sun exact her Mercury – his ego and her communication are ‘as one’.
  • His 13°Leo Pluto is exact her Lunar Nodal South Node and also square his Jupiter.
  • His Casanova-BML exact her natal Sun. The 8 year-old likely ‘adored’ him; the innocence in the company of a sadistic killer.

I have no doubt in interpreting the astology as suggesting that Ted Bundy did indeed murder at the age of 14 years. He murdered Ann Marie Burr.

Peter Britton Tobin

By request: Can astrology indicate as to whether the Scottish serial killer Peter Tobin and Bible John could be the same person?

Peter Tobin remains incarcerated in the UK – convicted for sex offenses and murder in Scotland and England.  We need not fear that he will walk the streets again. ‘Bible John’ meanwhile, remains an enigma.  Three murders in Scotland with the ‘Bible John’ tag remain unsolved – cold cases.

There are three murders confirmed as being committed by Peter Tobin – February 1991; August 1991; September 2006 and three murders attributed to the unknown; ‘Bible John’ –  February 1968; August 1969 and  October 1969.

Astrology is a pseudo science and therefore not accepted in any court in western society due to the fact that the zodiac backdrop has been scientifically proven to not be in fixed positions in the heavens.  The constellations also orbit within our solar system; albeit minimally.  Nonetheless, the zodiac is the backdrop that we have, at our disposal and use for interpretation of likely behaviour.  Irrespective of the backdrop, our two snapshots in-time are accurate and can be studied for potential tension.

When we address the murderous deeds of Peter Tobin, we can endeavour to identify behavioural weaknesses in his natal chart, as well as the tension in the heavens on the dates he took the lives of girls and women.  We do not intentionally ignore Tobin’s other crimes; our aim is to explore as to whether Peter Tobin is likely responsible for the murders attributed to ‘Bible John’.

Knowing the time, date and place of birth of Peter Tobin, taking a snapshot of the heavens at that time and place, we discover that we have a most unfortunate horoscope to interpret…

Even with a very basic chart, we can note that there was upheaval created in his early life; at 3 and 4 years of age when we check the solar arc progressions.   By the time he was seven, Jupiter had also progressed to cross mid-heaven; trouble with the law. The result – he was sent to reform school.  A year later, Mars had joined Venus-Chiron. His early forays into charm school, were a fantasy.

The pattern in the heavens when Peter Tobin was born has the majority of natal planets in the 8thhouse – transformation by ‘endings’ and the 9th house – the realm of fantasy. Both houses have a direct link to Vesta in the 3rd house of communication.

Asteroid Vesta – 5:13°Rx Aries: With our focus on the weaknesses of a character, we make note that Vesta is in an intercepted house, which is a weakening effect as its basis. We know that Tobin is a serial sexual predator, it is inevitable that we can expose the darkest side of Vesta. Apart from keeping the home fires burning, the asteroid weaknesses would likely refer the ‘fire in the loins’ and in Aries – initiate sexual fetishes etc. Plus with the asteroid located in the natal 3rd house, in hindsight it is wise that he was removed from his siblings before sexual maturity.

  • Vesta quindecile (obsessive-compulsive) Venus-Chiron 19°Libra (this is his most dangerous aspect in relation to Tobin’s crimes)
  • Vesta quincunx Sun – i.e. arms open wide to embrace what he wants/lack of discretion as to the wants, or needs of his sexual partner.

Uranus – 21°Gemini: At the descendant/cusp of the 7th house indicates that Tobin was bound to have more than one ‘life-partner’. In fact he married three times – all sexually abusive; violent relationships.

Asteroid Ceres – 00°Aquarius in the 2nd house. Ceres represents appetites; where one nourishes oneself. In this case, a feeling of being abandoned as a child has likely led to a finding solace in ‘the offbeat’. This has manifested by having the rape-flag asteroid Dejaniera#157 in the mirror at 00°Leo, fulfilling his need for intimacy by sexually predator behaviour.

  • 2nd house Ceres relates to ‘value of self’. Note – attempting to make sense of bizarre behaviour is pointless with this individual.

Asteroid Dejaniera 00°Leo is also quincunx natal Arabian Part Fortuna (destiny). With Pallas nudging AP Fortuna, he likely had an inner resolve that his choice of behaviour was ‘as destined’.

Mars – 11°Libra in 9th house (fantasy). Eleven is a number that indicates an opportunity of mastery of one’s actions. With asteroid #28978; Ixion, at 10:53°Libra EXACT Mars in the heavens, mastery it could be; viewed through the eyes of the perpetrator, however not by society. Ixion is interpreted as the indicator for murderous deeds (Greco-Roman mythology)

Venus-Chiron 19°Libra in 9th house (fantasy). This aspect reveals Peter Tobin’s propensity to sexual-violence. Venus represents the ‘feminine’ and beauty when in Libra, however when specifically in the natal chart of a man, it’s sure to indicate a ‘ladies man’; Mr Charming.  Chiron on the other hand, is usually described as a wound that we carry through life, so when we have the two exact in the heavens, the boundaries blur; this ‘charm’ is a ‘curse, rather than a blessing’ for the innocents; his victims.

Adding conflict to a relationship brings intimacy for Tobin, however the rejection by a female, for whatever reason (including menses), likely triggers the quindecile; obsessive behaviour with Vesta.

Peter Tobin’s three convictions for murder:   The inner chart and perspective for interpretation, is that of the natal chart for Peter Tobin (as above) and the outer wheel is a snapshot of the heavens on the night of the murders utilizing incident times when known.

#1 Murder of Vicky Hamilton – recorded incident 10:45pm, 10th February 1991 in Bathgate, Scotland.

Tobin was by now, living alone at Bathgate, after his second wife had left him.

  • Solar Arc progression of natal chart to this date: SA Venus is now square natal Sun and Jupiter has progressed to quindecile natal Lunar North Node. He is out in the open now, no longer walking the shadows of misogeny.
  • Note the tension with natal Venus-Chiron – the incident time is conjunct his weakness.
  • Transiting Moon-Uranus square natal Mars – personal needs are highlighted along with erratic behaviour with the drive to act.
  • Moon-Uranus quincunx natal Pluto – lack of discernment in relation to all those symbolic interpretations for Pluto in Leo.
  • Transiting Venus opposite natal Moon.  Needs pressing in relation to the female form.

Vicky Hamilton’s body was discovered years later; buried at another known address where Tobin had lived.  He moved between these addresses 2-3 weeks after Vicky was murdered.  When recovered, her body had been dismembered. He had relocated the body after death to be interred in the garden of his Margate, England residence.

Peter Tobin was 45 years of age.

#2 Murder of Dinah McNicol – chart noon, 5th August 1991 Reigate, England. Time of incident was afternoon-evening most likely. He again had taken his victim home. Dinah’s remains was also discovered at the Margate property, along with the remains for Vicky Hamilton.

  • Solar Arc progression to this date: Neptune has progressed into the 11th house and now quincunx (lack of discernment) natal Uranus (erratic behavior). Prescription drugs (Neptune) were used to sedate the victim (ditto for Vicky Hamilton).
  • Transiting Lunar Nodal axis square the Venus-Chiron natal aspect.
  • Saturn Rx transiting is quincunx natal Sun and Saturn – crosses the boundaries of male-female relationships with this murder – the details of which, we are not privy to thank goodness.
  • Further tension left for others to interpret.

#3: Murder of Angelika Kluk – chart noon, 24th September 2006. Time is unknown, although she was last seen during daylight hours with Tobin preparing to paint a shed.

He was by now, 60 years of age.

  • SA progressions: Venus progressed to conjunct natal Lunar South Node; Neptune progressed to quindecile natal Uranus; Pluto progressed to conjunct natal Mars-Ixion. These progressions alone indicate that Tobin will not get away with this murder, when we note the South Node under tension.
  • Transiting planets are weighted over Tobin’s 9th house of fantasy.
  • Lack of discernment is related to transiting Uranus,.  Earlier it had been about control; now, the lack of discernment is most likely insanity.

All three murders reveal the transiting astrology tension on the 9th house fantasy in his natal chart; the Venus-Chiron weakness. That, along with other obvious malefic planetary tension indicate the connection.

Bible John’s three murders:  The inner chart and perspective for interpretation, is the same method as the charts above.

We go back in time to 1968-1969, when Peter Tobin was just 21-22 years of age.   Peter Tobin was living in Glasgow at the time of the Bible John murders and was known to be a regular at these Thursday night dances where the victims met their killer.

BJ#1 Murder of Patricia Docker – chart time used midnight 22-23 February 1968. Cinderella time and our ‘Mr Charming’ is likely doing what he does oh-so-well; the ladies’ man. The naked body of 25 year-old Patricia Docker was found in a lane just yards from her home. She lay where she was attacked; raped and strangled after leaving the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow city centre.

  • Solar Arc progression to this date: Natal Pluto 12°Leo has progressed to conjunct natal Sun in Virgo – ego is now entering an empowerment phase, though still in the 8th house (transformation). Mars – together with asteroid Ixion, has progressed to cross the mid-heaven, leaving fantasy and entering the public realm.
  • Transiting Lunar Nodal axis is EXACT natal Venus-Chiron – publicity.
  • Lack of discrimination tension is to natal Sun – his ego’s wants.
  • Transiting Sun (date on the calendar) is quindecile natal Venus-Chiron.  Tonight is the night to open the closet door.
  • Much interpretation left for others.

There is so much astrology tension to interpret here in this bi-wheel, that I have no doubt in pointing the finger at Peter Tobin as being the likely culprit.

BJ#2 Murder of Jemima MacDonald, was the night of 15-16 August 1969 (6months after the first murder) Again it was a Thursday night. Tobin was working and living in Glasgow at the time, although he did commute to Brighton during the month to marry his first wife.  According to media, his first wife claimed that he kidnapped her and forced her into marriage.  That’s the Chiron aspect coming into play overriding his natal Venus.  Being exact in his natal chart, Tobin would not be able to separate the two energies.

Jemima Macdonald had been beaten, raped and strangled; not necessarily in that order.   She was found the next morning in a vacant tenement.

  • Solar Arc progressed Moon is now conjunct natal Neptune. Is this the need to be subversive, or the beginning of the use of prescription drugs? Natal Neptune is now at the mid-heaven and Venus has progressed to square natal Pluto.
  • Transiting planets are kept in rein by the Lunar North Node holding the leash.  The lack of discernment is connected to Tobin’s Venus-Chiron weakness, however it appears to be more of an opportunistic crime, if indeed Tobin were to be the perpetrator.

This murder is the least likely to have been committed by Peter Tobin according to the astrology tension in this bi-wheel.  The asteroid Bienor#54598 (associated with marriage) was transiting natal Mars. We are informed, that opportunity is possible between Tobin’s commute between Brighton and Glasgow.

BJ#3 Murder of  Helen Puttock. Last seen 12:30am 31 October 1969. Helen had visited the Barrowland Ballroom with her sister and together  they spent over an hour at the dancehall, sharing a taxi home with the killer. The chit chat in the back of the cab was the beginning of the tag ‘Bible John’- he quoted scripture to the women.  Helen’s sister alighted first, with the victim continuing to meet her fate in the company of ‘Bible John’.

  • Tobin’s solar arc progressed Jupiter is now square to natal Mercury – likely overly chatty.  SA Midheaven is now quincux natal Uranus..  Cracks are beginning to appear in public; manic behaviour.
  • At 12:30pm Tobin’s midheaven= the clock’s IC and vice-versa.  Opportunity knocked.
  • Natal Mercury was conjunct the ascendant.  He had the three angles working with him.
  • Transiting Jupiter was overhead and the Lunar North Node was quincunx natal Venus-Chiron.
  • The Moon was also square natal Venus-Chiron.

Opportunity for this murder was served on a platter, when we consider Tobin’s natal spread.  I would have difficulty denying that the astrology indicated that he was indeed the killer described as, ‘Bible John’.

Zodiac killer Pt.4

kodiak-imageWitnesses called 911.  Two teens hadn’t heard any gunshot.  It was sheer luck that they had seen the killer remove himself from the scene, leaving the lifeless body of 29 year-old cabbie, Paul Lee Stine in his San Francisco taxicab. The meter continued to tick over until law enforcement arrived to find a discarded 9mm shell casing; albeit not from a Luger this time. ZK had changed weapons yet again.

Luck was on the killer’s side as an inaccurate description went over police radios. Jupiter was not on the side of justice this time, conjunct the transiting Sun. In fact there was a vast stellium of planets across Virgo and Libra – Lunar South Node, Venus, Pluto, Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter, Sun and Moon across the 4th and 5th houses. This creates a fan pattern with Aries Chiron holding the handle; directed by Saturn in Taurus.

It was 9:55pm on 11th October 1969; just two weeks after ZK had killed Cecelia Shepard and wounded Bryan Hartnell at Lake Berryessa. It wasn’t until a letter was sent to the media by ZK, that the link was made and the Zodiac Killer ‘mythology’ began.

Oct69-event-blogThis case appears to fulfill the “desire” that Juno has been indicating in the previous charts. As for the desire, further interpretation will guide us.

A blatant public murder of the cab driver Paul Stine, in San Francisco – Ascendant is Gemini (Mercury); a 3rd house matter (short journeys/taxicabs). So the victim (Ascendant) is represented by Mercury  – i.e. found in the 4th house in this chart. The planet Mercury is quite at home in Virgo, as well as Gemini, however Virgo is a more passive role (even if it is nit-picky) whereas in Gemini, Mercury is usually interpreted as more assertive.

The descendant (assailant) of the chart is in the zodiac of Sagittarius with the ruler of Sagittarius; Jupiter in his element. We note that Jupiter in the chart is in the 5th house (social Libra).

Note the Juno connection again – this time a quindecile to the ascendant.  We are getting a recurring pattern which we can address later.  I’ve planted a pennant for ‘take note’.

october event simplified.This next chart is a simplified version of the chart above; generated from my software. It clearly reveals the massive stellium across Virgo and Libra (4th and 5th houses) and all very much driven by 11th house Chiron.

Chiron in Aries = a sense of self. Finding ourselves on a voyage of self-discovery, or a need to overcome feelings of being unlovable; i.e. the inner child cries out for acceptance. Chiron deals with healing our inner wounds. However for all us angels here, we know that murder is not the way to do it…

Note as this is an 11th house Chiron, this is possibly related to being loveable/unloveable – I’d flag this aspect to look for a possible Sun-Moon tension in a POI’s natal chart (somewhat explains aberrant behaviours).

For previous posts on this ongoing enquiry see Pt.1 plus Pt.2 and Part.3.

Oct69-Myers-duoPOI#1 Louis MYERS is reacting nicely for us, but then every teenage boy is probably equally fascinated by a potential serial killer in their midst and the media hype that followed.

  •  tr Uranus quindecile natal Lunar North Node PLUS
  • tr Lunar nodal axis EXACT Lunar nodal axis  – he’s likely joined a ‘who dunnit’ group following the cases, particularly considering …
  • tr Sun conjunct natal Neptune (turquoise) in the 5th house.  We are witnessing the emergence of a conspiracy theorist – note Vertex conjunct Neptune in his natal chart.

The fact that Myers confessed on his deathbed is probably more a case of delusion/desire to be remembered for something; anything…  blurring with childhood memories.  We’ll not dismiss him on that alone though, by any means.

Oct69-Allen-duoPOI#2 Arthur Leigh ALLEN is the man whom is forever chasing ‘the big break’ (Jupiter opposite Uranus).  This date on the calendar – i.e. transiting Sun (orange) illuminates his need to be optimistic.

  • tr Pluto square Allan’s natal Sun – he’s in company wanting to impress – not likely to be in San Francisco shooting a cabbie. I wouldn’t think.  The chart lacks aggression.

Oct69-Edwards-duoPOI#3 Edward Wayne EDWARDS has his ego at the ascendant; an aspect that cannot be ignored.  Particularly so, as transiting Venus (the serial killer etheric-radio network) and his natal mid range Moon (blue) are focused on his wants and needs.

  • tr Uranus is in quindecile aspect to the mid-range natal Moon – heightening his needs, as is his desire. This is equally so with the reverse being in similar tension as well.
  • Natal Mars is very close to the transiting LNA, so he’s looking for the public attention.

I cannot identify anything particularly threatening among the asteroids to connect him to this murder.

Oct69-Gaikowski-duoPOI#4 Richard Joseph GAIKOWSKI has been seeking our attention all the way with this enquiry and this chart is no different.  Killers all have their unique desires that drive them to murder, an over inflated ego is no different when mixed with some insanity.

This man appears to be a fantasist driven by his natal Moon (personal needs) in either very late Scorpio, or Sagittarius.  The former needs to be ‘right’ and the latter to be respected for his ‘opinions’.  If he is well ‘certified’ with qualifications to hang on his wall, then he is likely the latter. At this stage I still know little about this male POI.

  • tr Sun (orange in the inner wheel) illuminates his natal Uranus by quindecile.  This is a dangerous aspect as it indicates a reaction to his natal Moon’s needs.  If Gaikowski is our perpetrator, then the victim may have not respected his customer enough (according to this passenger’s rule-book).  It can be as simple as that to trigger a murderous deed.
  • tr asteroid Phaeton (vehicle) conjunct Juno – this is certainly getting my attention as Juno is a large part of the motive IMO.  Flag this aspect…
  • tr Gunn (weapon) conjunct natal Paul (the victim) – we have to put this POI under our microscope when we come to a final analysis of the POI’s we have taken from wikipedia.

POI#5 George Hill HODEL Jr –  he’s out of the country

Oct69-Phillips-duoPOI#6 James Douglas Crabtree/PHILLIPS provides us with a midpoint; one of the few subtleties to this crime. It is also a very dangerous aspect.

  • tr Saturn/Uranus= natal Mars – tremendous upheaval is taking place in this man’s life during this time period.
  • Natal Saturn at the ascendant – this could be a serious health issue, however whatever is happening in this man’s life, he has no control over his surroundings at this time.  One would tend to think that this man is not in a position to be able to be catching cabs anywhere on this date.
  • tr asteroids in his natal chart; Paul and Gunn are nudging the ascendant, bringin him to the public’s attention when we note the location of the transiting LNA.

Oct69-Tarrance-duoPOI#7 Jack TARRANCE has never inspired me at all with these murders to take overly seriously.  He’s an Aries Moon with Jupiter and Uranus backing up his need to be Numero Uno.

He’d be lapping up any attention he could get. Sad isn’t it that notoriety is as satisfying as fame to many individuals.

Oct69-VanBest-duoPOI#8 Earl VAN BEST is not someone whom we would want in our close circle of friends.  His natal Black Moon Lilith is conjunct the asteroid Gunn is his birth horoscope. Live by the sword and die by the sword would be his motto.

This bi-wheel reveals more about braggadocio, than anything else.

So where do we go from here, folks?  For those whom have been following this enquiry into whom may be the Zodiac killer i.e. through our previous posts, it is becoming clearer as to whom looks like being of interest to us as astrologers.  However I’ll not be prejudiced in my handling of these what is now seven POIs.

We can expect a summary once I’ve untangled the threads of this ‘who dunnit’ according to the heavens…
