Joshua Easley

When we undertake a forensic astrology enquiry, we only work with the weaknesses in someone’s character – where they will let themselves and their defenses down.  That is how FA works. The heavens tell us how it is, without any coating of sugar or spice.  No matter what we are told by those whom ask us for help, we interpret what the astrology reveals.

Please be aware that astrology is a pseudo science and as such is not accepted in a court of law. Our interpretation is from classic texts.  Please remain skeptical of all that follows.

  • Event: 1pm, 21st April 2014 – phone call between mother and son
  • Missing person: Joshua EASLEY – born 5:30pm 26th July 1988
  • MPR – 4:40pm 29th April 2014
  • Location: Ogden, Utah

When we are contacted to look into a case, our first port of call once we get our first data is to generate an astrology bi-wheel (method) to see if the missing person is in danger of losing their life.

This is our first bi-wheel we produced, by request.  The inner wheel is the time that Joshua Easley was in known contact with anyone; his mother.   The outer wheel is the natal chart for Joshua with birth time provided by family.

Note: We allow leeway for interpretation of the ascendant to swing a few minutes either way, as a time provided ‘on the hour’ is rarely precise plus I’m sure the call would have likely been over several minutes duration – when a boy talks to his mom.

  • Natal Sun (orange) in the outer wheel is at the ascendant – conversation is about himself; his wants, NOT his needs.  Note the Sun identifies what one’s ego wants and the Moon the driving needs.
  • transiting Moon (blue in the inner wheel) is opposite natal Mercury (yellow) PLUS
  • transiting Mercury is also square natal Mercury – the 26 year-old is speaking with his nurturer (mother) represented by the transiting Moon on this occasion.  The entire conversation is likely to be about himself and what he ‘thinks’.
  • Sun/Moon midpoint (primary focus of the phonecall) = 13°Pisces conjunct natal North Node at IC (opposite 10th house); his future career prospects.

We note that NO serious forensic indicators are present to indicate tension that may identify that Joshua Easley is at risk of loss of life. We then proceed to generate more bi-wheels with a similar outcome; car ‘abandoned’ – similar outcome; car reported missing etc.  Our feedback was what the charts revealed that there did not appear to be any imminent danger.

While we now await the clock-time for the Missing Person’s report in order to generate further charts to uncover this mystery, we proceed to see why this disappearance remains unsolved with no supposed persons of interest during the intervening 8 months. Is it a voluntary missing situation?

event1EasleycaseThose familiar with this blog know my next step already.  What is the general atmosphere and focus of this phone call?

Firstly scroll up to the above chart then back here… We can see immediately that there is a lot going on at the time, however Joshua is not reacting emotively in the first chart – why?.  His is focused on his WANTS; me, me, me – that’s why.

This second chart is what is known as an Horary chart. I call it an ‘event’ chart for simplicity.  It is a snapshot of the planetary positions in their orbit above Ogden at the time when the phone conversation is taking place. This chart will tell us what is really going on and what the conversation is about.

Immediately we note the boxed-in effect between Mars-Jupiter-Uranus and Pluto; I.e. action plus over-inflated plus the buzz-effect plus power.  We know that Joshua is talking about himself, so he’s talking about what he’s going to do in an over-inflated way, plus the power/powerlessness of his situation.

Note: He is locked-in/boxed-in to his perception of his future career prospects are BUT he is not being emotive about it (there is not emotive reaction in the first chart), probably because he is sure of himself and that he will get what he wants.

Sun/Moon midpoint referred to in the first chart; his career prospects are revealed once we start looking at the asteroids. Look to the 8th house (his potential downfall) – we have Venus (pink) Chiron (blue) and Neptune (turquoise) all hanging around together over the top of and around 13°Pisces – likely money management is the open wound 

As for the asteroids transiting on 21 March that will affect the natal chart interpretation:

  • Natal Atropos #273 at 22:2°Scorpio  – Atropos is where we cut the cut the ties of life; relinquish self-control to the grim reaper.
  • Narcissus #37117 at 19:43°Scorpio – vanity will trigger the above
  • Mollypetit #20472 at 5:54°Pisces – drug indicator

There are two quindeciles in this chart as well, indicating obsessional behaviour – Mars and Lunar south node; the karmic element. Plus Uranus and Lunar north node; together, the adrenaline rush most likely.

Summary:  Putting those two charts together, we know that there is a lot of Mercury focus in that first chart.  Mercury represents communication and so we know there was a conversation.  However when we consider the second chart we know that this has to do with career prospects.  Must be some money in the conversation, if he’s this verbose.

Communication can be someone going on the ‘speaker’s circuit’ but we’re working in the realm of fear and criminal activity so the second chart reveals a possible Neptune connection. This 26 year-old male is possibly leaving on the night of the 22nd April (as per his mom’s comments).

Now if his mom knew this, she would have also asked, “When will you be back?” Would she not?

So following this line of enquiry from the astrology results, I would suggest that our original feedback that Joshua Easley was not in danger by others on 21 April 2014 would be accurate.  He left town of his own volition.

What we do have is the 26 year-old man’s birth data and so we can check his character – remembering that we are looking for weaknesses rather than his attributes.  We mean no offense by this; it is the manner in which we work focusing on the weaknesses in a character.

This chart is the natal horoscope for Joshua Easley on the date he was born.  We have the birth time and so this is an accurate snapshot of the position of the planets in the heavens as they orbit within our solar system at the time of his birth.

Joshua EasleyNote the stellium of planets in the 1st house (ego).  His personal needs (Moon) are driven from the perspective of himself; self-interest.  

We are also immediately made aware of the open wound, mentioned above (Chiron).  I’ve highlighted both in blue. Juno is there as well plus both are in the zodiac sign of Cancer (security).  Plus they are in the 7th house of public relationships. So we know that he has a weakness of entering into relationships that can be a security risk – for his welfare or whatever.

What is particularly revealing to us is that he has an asteroid in his natal chart at this point in his horoscope – Lie #26955 at 2:59°Cancer exact conjunct natal Chiron and opposite his natal Moon.  This reveals that he is susceptible to lies and tells them himself; his life is likely a litany of lies and that is his lesson to overcome, I would suggest.  

Other aspects reveal that he sees his career as being in the public realm and is highly obsessive about his image. Plus there is always the ascendant point of 15°Sagittarius to consider.  This is the point in the heavens where the fixed star Ras Algethi rises above the horizon to influence this life. Also note the position of Mars (exact the IC) before continuing.

rasalgethiThe forehead of the kneeling Hercules, possesses a character of Mars-Venus with a slight blend of Mercury. If in good aspect, it is supposed to give much enjoyment and favors from women. However, if unconnected with helpful planets, it is said to cause much irritation, especially in connection with the female sex. But, by its very Mars nature, Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power. [Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.72.]

If Rising: The star Ras Algethi presages both the good and bad sides of Saturn. When rising it can mean a wise and clever man, but can also indicate an individual trained in various tricks, a liar who deceives with different kinds of plots. Aspects of the horoscope (Ascendant) by Mars when Ras Algethi is rising is indicative of an aggressive personality who always displays an unbridled hostility to those he comes in contact with. [Fixed Stars and Judicial Astrology, George Noonan, 1990, p.11-12.]

Don’t forget those asteroids we mentioned above that are in his natal chart.  They now come into play with the planetary positions transiting on 21 March:

  • Natal Atropos #273 at 22:2°Scorpio  – Atropos is where we cut the cut the ties of life; relinquish self-control to the grim reaper.  This is now conjunct transiting Saturn – interpretation is self-explanatory
  • Narcissus #37117 at 19:43°Scorpio – vanity will trigger the above; i.e. his vanity will be behind the reason for his demise
  • Mollypetit #20472 at 5:54°Pisces – drug indicator is conjunct transiting Neptune

When we consider the asteroids transiting on 21st April 2014 that relate back to his natal planetary spread, we can interpret the aspects that that create tension in the nature of the man.

  • BML at 5:23°Leo (conjunct natal Sun) – Black Moon Lilith is the weakest link in the chain of events
  • Hades # at 2:2°Cancer (conj natal asteroids Lie and Chiron) – telling lies only leads to hell
  • Karma #3811 27:16°Sagittarius (conj natal Saturn and Uranus) – what you put out comes back to bite you
  • Mollypetit #20472 at 14:51°Aquarius (conj tr Chiron) – drugs leave an open wound to fester
  • Narcissus #37117 at 18:2°Capricorn (conj Moon/Pluto midpoint) – vanity is not to be confused with power
  • Atropos #273 27:10°Leo (nudging post tr Pallas) – no matter how good a warrior one may think they are, in the end we all die.

MPR-JEasleyWith the Missing Person Report data to hand, we can generate a final bi-wheel.  The inner wheel is the time of the report and the outer wheel the natal horoscope as used above.

  • Natal Saturn is at the IC – on some level, mom knows that he’s not coming home.
  • tr Venus (pink) is at the Descendant – opposite the rising sign of Virgo; money ‘down the drain’.
  • tr Venus is also square natal Saturn-Uranus conjunction  – this will cost him his life.
  • tr Sun (orange) represents the date on the calendar and opposite to natal Pluto – belief in self as all-powerful; holding the aces.
  • tr Uranus/Pluto midpoint = cusp 6th house and transiting asteroid Nessus#7066 – betrayed trust of a friend; whom is not a friend. 

As to where his remains are, I do not know.  He was living in his car at the time so on the move from ‘friend to friend’; nowhere for us to ground the bi-wheel.

Note: Edited following the recovery of Joshua’s remains in November 2015.

Kayelyn Louder

On a cold and rainy November morning in Salt Lake City, more than 170 volunteers; family and friends wore ponchos and hand warmers as they canvased and searched a one-mile radius in Murray, Utah. GPS technology guided their route in their hope of finding clues that would lead to the discovery of 30 year-old Kayelyn Louder. Kiki had been missing for too many weeks. Their search came up empty.

We were asked to help less than a week ago and so we open our toolkit.  Forensic astrology is a pseudo science and as such can only be considered to be in the realm of opinion.  We ask that all whom read this enquiry do so with a healthy dose of skepticism.

  • KayelynLouderMissing person:  Kayelyn ‘Kiki’ Louder
  • DOB: 21 January 1984
  • Disappearance:  CCTV 5:47pm and sighting reported at the same address around 7pm, 27 September 2014
  • Location: Willows Condominiums, 5518 Willow Lane, Murray, Salt Lake City, Utah

I’m familiar with her Sun-Moon mix and so I can share that her recent behaviour as reported in the media is certainly very out of character for an Aquarian Sun with a Virgo Moon. Natal Sun in Aquarius has the planetary ruler as Uranus and the Moon in Virgo ruling planet is Mercury. That gives us a mix of intellect and communication; a normally rational and reasoned person.

With forensic astrology we look for weaknesses in an astrology horoscope and we can see immediately that the natal (birth) planetary layout is weighted to one side; off-balanced. There are also three major influences at zero degrees; 00°.  This is indicative that the energy is raw therefore somewhat inexperienced, even immature in a character development, to the extent of appearing hyper-active – OTT.

Kayelyn has her natal Sun at 00°Aquarius and then there is a further potentially disharmonious aspect – an exact conjunction; 00°Capricorn Jupiter (inflation) and 00°Capricorn Neptune (fantasy).  This latter pair can be a fantastic asset for a creative and artistic mind, however it also identifies the risk of illusion/delusion when under tension.

Our first bi-wheel (method) is generated at 5:47pm and we can immediately see that natal Uranus is exact at the midheaven together with natal Lunar South Node creating the buzz that generates erratic behaviour and sudden changes in a character.  This is the beginning of a karmic event.

We can also see that the transiting planets are all on the same side of the wheel as the natal chart – everything is off-balanced.   It is in the upper hemisphere of the chart and so it is not based on early childhood behaviour, or life experiences.  This is innate behaviour in the character due to nature, rather than nurture.

  • tr Jupiter (green) is inflating the very nature of Kayelyn quindecile her Sun (orange) in the 12th house of the mind – generating obsessive agitation.  PLUS
  • tr Jupiter square natal Saturn in 8th house of death and transformation – inflating the lack of self-control plus the forensic indications   PLUS
  • tr Moon (blue) conjunct natal Saturn – emotional event of a driving need to take one’s life.  Note this also gives us our locator angle for finding her.  She’s not hiding from us.  Speaking from the other side, she wants to be found.
  • tr Sun (orange in the inner wheel) is the date on the calendar square natal Mercury (yellow) – Mercury identifies communication Kayelyn is in communication with her demons.   PLUS the reverse.
  • tr Mercury (yellow) square natal Sun – She just wants the voices to stop.

This bi-wheel (method) has been generated from the perspective of 7pm on the same evening. The wheel has rotated, as has the earth, together with the clock on our wall.

7pm-LouderWhat is now at the mid-heaven is that natal Jupiter-Neptune exact conjunction at 00°Capricorn.  The text-book interpretation of this position is that of the visionary; the potential for all kinds of self-indulgence.

We can certainly suggest that Kiki is likely to be experiencing a delusional episode at this time; a psychotic break. The tension as interpreted above in the first bi-wheel remains in place. Natal Venus has crossed the midheaven and entered the 9th house of higher consciousness.  If I might suggest – a meeting with her higher self/inner guide, or even possibly, an angel.

Celestial Navigation:

In astrology, north is at the bottom of the page, whereas our maps of the land have north at the top, so we flip the astrology charts vertically to prepare for celestial navigation – astrology and cartography in communication.

We identified the locator angle from the first bi-wheel as being the transiting Moon conjunct natal Saturn.  We then have our directional arrows from the two charts as per this image.

locators-LouderNote:  we then flip the charts vertically as per this image. Click on image for full size.

The most southerly arrow/locator angle has been generated from the 5:47pm event and the second arrow/locator angle is slightly more easterly at 7pm (due to the rotation of the earth over the time).

Generating a map from Google Maps, we have the address where Kayelyn left from, so we then superimpose both of our charts – centered over the point of departure.

So the closer to 7pm that Kayelyn left, the further east from the 5:47pm locator angle she will have met with her demise.  If it was after 7pm, then the angle is just a tad more easterly from the 7pm line.

Please note that the area that she may have met her demise can be anywhere from the center of the circle of the chart (the apartments) outwards.  Hopefully this will narrow the search area for her friends and family to find some evidence.

Remember she is barefooted and it is raining, so will not have travelled far. We cannot offer good news.  DO NOT lose sight of the fact that is is a directional locator angle and does NOT identify ‘x’ marks the spot where she will be found.

We leave our enquiry in the hands of the searchers.  I am sorry that we cannot offer good news.  God speed the recovery efforts.

2nd December update:  The remains found in the Jordan River are those of Kayelyn; it would appear that she was swept far from where she met with her demise by the fast flowing waters.  I apologise if I have sent anyone off in the wrong direction.  Our map has been removed out of respect for those left behind whom love her. We do not wish to cause distress.

Astrology notes: From the astrology there are NO indicators that Kiki consciously intended to kill herself, or commit suicide.  IMO, she wanted to stop the voices that she was experiencing; a psychotic break.  Kiki would have been ‘out-of-her-mind’ at the time and did what she felt that she had to do, to end the paranoia.

I ALWAYS call that ‘death by misadventure’ as it is NOT a reasoned suicide.  No matter what is reported; it was not preemptive.  The astrology does NOT indicate that anyone else was involved in her demise.

For those whom need to know and want to check the astrology…

  • Recovery of Kayelyn is at – 3300S 1200W (#171 bridge over the Jordan River).
  • Locator angle to Condo F, 5500 Willow Lane intersects the 7pm bi-wheel and natal Saturn – indicating (according to astrology) that it was a few minutes before 7pm when she likely met with her demise.
  • The angle continues on through to intersect with the corner of Willow Lane and Tonalea Drive. When I check this on Google satellite there are railings on the side of the road/bridge over Little Cottonwood Creek.

If anyone is local, I would appreciate if they would contemplate at that corner for us, wishing Kayelyn peace and an invitation to return home. Thank you and God bless.

RIP Kiki.
