Billions didn’t save Jeffrey Epstein


Epstein on Suicide watch commits suicide

Former financier Jeffrey Epstein died Saturday morning, August 10th 2019, in an suicide in his Manhattan jail cell as he was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, law-enforcement officials say. He was 66 years old.

He was found unresponsive in his cell at approximately 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, according to prison officials & then transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department’s inspector general have opened separate investigations into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death, officials said, as they find it suspicious.

Suicide as a vehicle

Problem is, had they looked at this chart, they would have seen that Epstein’s suicide is not as suspicious as one may think. He was used to doing and going where he wanted, and this padded cell with no people, no visitors because he was now a societal pariah was more than he could tolerate. His transiting Mars is opposite his natal Mars — out of sign but still within orb. The transiting Mars wanted to do something, he did not care what it was, as long it was something. He was used to negotiating, managing, wheeling dealing — being in charge and now all he could be in charge of was his freedom (Moon in Sagittarius), and so that was what he did.

The joke is on you

“Every single person in the Justice Department—from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer—knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him.” He added, “Obviously, heads must roll.”

Manhattan Correctional where Epstein died.

Attorney General William Barr said in a statement he was appalled to learn of the apparent suicide.

“Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,” Mr. Barr said. Mr. Barr was livid to learn about Mr. Epstein’s death, telling staffers he is determined to get to the bottom of what happened, a person familiar with the matter said.

WSJ

About two weeks ago, officials moved Mr. Epstein to a suicide-watch unit after he was found unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck. Mr. Epstein at the end of July was taken off suicide watch, where he had received daily psychiatric evaluations, a person familiar with the matter said.

Lisa Boesky, a San Diego-based psychologist and expert on suicide in correctional facilities, said jails are required to have a qualified mental-health professional conduct suicide-risk assessments when a prisoner is suspected of being at risk.

The arrest at Teterboro

Mr. Epstein was arrested July 6 2019 at Teterboro Airport in Bergen County, New Jersey when he was returning from Paris on his private jet with Ghislane Maxwell. Obviously, someone close to Epstein knew when he was arriving but did not tell him what was in store. Who this person is, has never been revealed.

Prosecutors accused Mr. Epstein of orchestrating a years long sex-trafficking operation in which he and his associates lured dozens of girls—some as young as 14 years old—to his homes in New York and Florida. He recruited them to perform massages in the nude that steadily progressed to masturbation and sex acts, prosecutors said. Epstein pleaded not guilty. At a recent hearing, U.S. District Senior Judge, Richard Berman discussed June 2020 as a tentative trial date.

Judge Berman received his B.S. from Cornell in 1964, and his law degree from New York University in 1967. He once served as an executive aide to U.S. Senator Jacob Javits (Republican). Berman Was Named to District Court for the Southern District of New York on May 21, 1998 by President William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton. He received his most recent degree, a Master in Social Work, from Fordham University, Bronx, New York in 1996.

The investigation will continue even after Mr. Epstein’s death.

The Giuffre files

On Friday, a cache of legal documents was made public by a federal appeals court. It provided details about his life and how he, and his associates allegedly recruited young women and girls for sex work. The documents were filed as part of a defamation lawsuit brought against a longtime companion of Mr. Epstein, and included sworn testimony by Mr. Epstein’s employees, and the plaintiff, Virginia Giuffre.

Mr. Epstein had sought to be released from jail and put under house arrest in his Manhattan apartment pending trial. Judge Berman denied his request for bail, saying Mr. Epstein posed too great a danger to the community. Mr. Epstein’s lawyers appealed the decision.

In the early 2000s, Mr. Epstein was known for his ties to public figures like former President Clinton (Berman’s appointee) and Prince Andrew, both of whom flew on Mr. Epstein’s private jets. At this same time, the financier was dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct involving underage girls (Mars conjunct Venus in the 8th house of Pisces inconjunct Pluto at 22 Leo 33 (conjunct the South Node) that has a sextile to old man Saturn in the 4th house in Libra. This creates a natal yod that ends up where his Moon and ascendant at time of death.)


This article was heavily rewritten and Epstein’s natal chart rectified from the original 11:54 AM of the same day, after not being able to track the original source. We feel that this chart,is more germane to both Mr. Epstein and the situations preceding his death.

#599 A bundle of James Russell Lowell


That James Russell Lowell is part of the Jones 1000 makes sense; Jones considered himself a minor poet and wrote esoteric verse whenever he could much like Aleister Crowley, his contemporary, did.


JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL was a diplomatist, was born at Elmwood, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on the 22nd of February 1819.  He was the son of Charles Lowell (1782-1861), the minister for the West Congregational (Unitarian) Church of Boston..  For the  greater part of his ministry, Chas. Lowell was the lone voice against slavery.  On his mother’s side he was descended from the Spences and Traills, who made their home in the Orkney Islands, & his great-grandfather, Robert Traill, returned to England on outbreak of the American Revolution in 1775.

Cambridge was still very much undeveloped land then, so Lowell was able to traipse about in nature and discover its delights.  He was also early initiated into the reading of poetry and romance, hearing Spenser and Scott in childhood, and old ballads from his mother. He graduated at Harvard without special honors in 1838.

Uncertain on what vocation to choose, he vacillated between business, the ministry, medicine and law, he opted to practise law, and applied to Harvard law school, and then was admitted to the Massachusetts bar. He became betrothed to Maria White in the autumn of 1840, and the next twelve years of his life were deeply affected by her influence in the movements directed against the evils of intemperance and slavery.

                                                 Charting Lowell

Jones gives Lowell the birth time of 9:45 am on February 22, 1819. When he was born though Neptune, not discovered until 1845, was unknown, but Lowell married his first wife Maria the year Monsieur Le Verrier discovered it and that marriage was a major impetus for his literary career; obviously Neptune largely influenced his life from that point on.

jrl without pluto.png
Neptune but no Pluto

His ascendant is 16 Taurus with the Hyperion symbol of  “package delivery van” a rather incongruous image for Lowell but one that Kent McClung explains as “a basic down-to-earth consideration to universal outcomes” which describes Lowell’s life well.

As Jones states in the Essential of Astrological Analysis¹, Lowell is a bundle.  All of his planets span within a trine starting with the then newly found Uranus to the old standby Saturn, co-rulers of Aquarius that is his eleventh house of friends and spirituality, showing his literary span of influence and writings.  His South Node is in the sixth house of Libra, often associated with the law, and shows as Lowell found out the hard way, it was not the career for him.  Instead, the North Node at 22 Aries conjunct his Part of Fortune at 20 Aries in the twelfth house, that poetry and literary endeavours maybe more to his taste.

Indeed, 22 Aries has the symbol of a Sage explaining the universe” and 20 fits in perfectly with the image of a “savler of healing oil,” heralding his work for the abolition of slavery that became the hallmark of his works and the Atlantic Monthly and his ability to nourish new poets and writers.

                       Where’s the lines?

Lowell’s Line of Vitality is semi-sextile sim²ilar to Alfred Lord Tennyson’s sextile aspect.  This suggests that their friend and loved one’s deaths and illnesses highly affected their life and work.  In Lowell’s  case, his chart is pock-marked with septiles much like F. Scott Fitzgerald

His Line of Efficiency is just semi-sextile, hovering on the outer limits of Martial orb and suggests that no matter what the problem, Lowell had great confidence in his ability to conquer it.  This so struck Marc Jones that he wrote he became the “prime spirit  in the flowering of native New England talent”  through his industrious “self-reliance of the future of American literature.”

His Line of Self-Determination, as we previously noted, is conjunct, giving Lowell a heightened ability to take advantage of opportunities as they fell his way — the spot at Harvard University and the Spanish post from President Rutherford B. Hayes, are two such examples.

Finally, his Line of Motivation is also semi-sextile, but that all four departments are so close is something to expect in a Bundle where everything is so bunched together.  This line shows Lowell’s ability to make lemonade out of lemons — or an ability to see great hope in adversity.

fireside-poetry-2-728
What were the Fireside Poets of New England?

The betrothal stimulated Lowell towards new efforts of self-support, because while still maintaining his law office as he was discovering he had no taste for it and little income.  He threw his energy into a literary journal, called The Pioneer with his law partner and was open to anyone who sent something in and so got Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Greenleaf Whittier, Edgar Allen Poe & Lowell Parsons, none of them yet possessing a wide reputation.  After three monthly issues, beginning in January 1843, the magazine came to an end, partly because of a sudden disaster which befell Lowell‘s eyes, partly through his business inexperience; they were bankrupt.

The venture confirmed Lowell in his bent towards literature. At the close of 1843 he published a collection of his poems, Conversations on some of the Old Poets. This is written in the form of a dialogue undress his subject; there was no attempt at the dramatic. The book reflects Lowell‘s mind for the conversations relate only partly to the poets and dramatists of the Elizabethan period; and any slight suggestion elsewhere sends the interlocutors off on the discussion of current reforms in church and state and society; he was a born reformer.

The_history_and_progress_of_the_world_(1913)_(14595373847).jpg
The Fireside Poets

Literature and reform were dividing the author’s mind and continued to do so for the next decade. Lowell and Miss White were married and spent the winter and early spring of 1845 in Philadelphia.  Here, besides continuing his literary contributions to magazines, Lowell had a regular engagement as an editorial writer on The Pennsylvania Freeman, a fortnightly journal devoted to the Anti-Slavery cause.

In the spring of 1845 the Lowells returned to Cambridge and made their home at Elmwood. On the last day of the year their first child, Blanche, was born, but she lived only fifteen months. A second daughter, Mabel, was born six months after Blanche’s death, and lived to survive her father; a third, Rose, died an infant.

Lowell‘s mother meanwhile was living, sometimes at home, sometimes at a neighboring hospital, with a clouded mind, and his wife was in frail health. These troubles and a narrow income conspired to make Lowell almost a recluse in these days, but from the retirement of Elmwood he sent forth writings which show how large an interest he took in affairs. He contributed poems to the daily press, on the Slavery question and while some were frequently works of art, occasionally they were tracts; but the prose was exclusively concerned with the public men and questions of the day.

In 1848 Lowell wrote a second series of Poems,:  “Columbus,” “An Indian Summer Reverie,” “To the Dandelion,” “The Changeling”; A Fable for Critics,  The Vision of Sir Launa, a romantic story suggested by the Arthurian legends – one of his most popular poems; and finally The Biglow Papers.

 Lowell had acquired a reputation among men of letters and a cultivated class of readers, but it was the satire of Biglow that brought he greater fame. The book was a single poem against the Mexican war and the Manifest Destiny that was so prominent in American politics; it was a great seller.

                            Family matters

The death of Lowell‘s mother, and the fragility of his wife’s health, led Lowell, with his wife, their daughter Mabel and their infant son Walter, to go to Europe in 1851, and they went direct to Italy. The early months of their stay were saddened by the death of Walter in Rome, and by the news of the illness of Lowell‘s father, who had a slight shock of paralysis.

lowell's wife dies.png

They returned in November 1852, and Lowell published a prose volume, Fireside Travels that helped endorse the Fireside poets and strengthen their name.He took part also in the editing of an American edition of the British Poets, but the low state of his wife’s health kept him in an uneasy condition.  Mrs. Lowell died  (27th October 1853) just as Neptune entered Taurus and with that grief came a readjustment of his nature and a new intellectual activity.

At the invitation of a cousin, he delivered a course of lectures on English poets before the Lowell Institute in Boston in the winter of 1855. This first formal appearance as a critic and historian of literature at once gave him a new standing in the community and was the occasion of his election to the Smith Professorship of Modern Languages in Harvard College, then vacant by the retirement of Longfellow.

The inner wheel is the Jupiter Cycle for 1856.  The outer is Lowell’s bundle highlighted in Yellow.  We could not find a date for when he remarried but notice that his Jupiter is conjunct the Cycle’s Venus in the eighth — love through shared suffering and understanding.

In 1856 when a new Jupiter Cycle began,  Lowell married Miss Frances Dunlap, a lady who had been in charge of his daughter Mabel since her mother’s death.

                                        The Atlantic Monthly

In the autumn of 1857 The Atlantic Monthly was established, and Lowell was its first editor. He at once gave the magazine the stamp of high literature and of bold speech on public affairs. He held this position until spring of 1861, but he continued to make the magazine the vehicle of his poetry and of some prose for the rest of his life. By 1862  he was associated with Mr Charles Eliot Norton, editor of the North American Review (Nathan Hale founded it in 1815)/  Later Norton himself  founded the Nation.

In 1877 Lowell, who had mingled so little in party politics that was appointed by President Hayes as minister resident at the court of Spain. He had a good knowledge of Spanish language and literature, and his long-continued studies in history and his quick judgment enabled him speedily to adjust himself to these new relations. His despatches to the home government were published in a posthumous volume – Impressions of Spain. In 1880 he was transferred to London as American minister and remained there till the close of President Arthur’s administration in the spring of 1885.

lowell dies.png
By the time Lowell dies, Pluto still not discovered for another 50 years, is conjunct Neptune.  More notably, his natal chart originally a bundle is filled with his life and thus his chart is complete.  Mars is opposite Mars also highlighting what probably was  a bad heart or stroke.

Illness attended the last months of his life, and he died at Elmwood on the 12th of August 1891. After his death his literary executor, Charles Eliot Norton, published a brief collection of his poems, and two volumes of added prose, besides editing his letters.

                                    Britannica review of Lowell’s oevure

The spontaneity of Lowell‘s nature is delightfully disclosed in his personal letters. They are often brilliant, and sometimes very penetrating in their judgment of men and books; but the most constant element is a pervasive humor, and this humor, by turns playful and sentimental, is largely characteristic of his poetry, which sprang from a genial temper, quick in its sympathy with nature and humanity. The literary refinement which marks his essays in prose is not conspicuous in his verse, which is of a simpler character.

There was an apparent conflict in him of the critic and the creator, but the conflict was superficial. The man behind both critical and creative work was so genuine, that through his writings and speech and action he impressed himself deeply upon his generation in America, especially upon the thoughtful and scholarly class who looked upon him as especially their representative. This is not to say that he was a man of narrow sympathies.

On the contrary, he was democratic in his thought, and outspoken in his rebuke of whatever seemed to him antagonistic to the highest freedom. Thus, without taking a very active part in political life, he was recognized as one of the leaders of independent political thought. He found expression in so many ways, and was apparently so inexhaustible in his resources, that his very versatility and the ease with which he gave expression to his thought sometimes stood in the way of a recognition of his large, simple political ideality and the singleness of his moral sight.

One of Lowell’s Poems.

The Dandelion

Dear common flower, that grow’st beside the way,
Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
First pledge of blithesome May,
Which children pluck, and, full of pride uphold,
High-hearted buccaneers, o’erjoyed that they
An Eldorado in the grass have found,
Which not the rich earth’s ample round
May match in wealth, thou art more dear to me
Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.

Gold such as thine ne’er drew the Spanish prow
Through the primeval hush of Indian seas,
Nor wrinkled the lean brow
Of age, to rob the lover’s heart of ease;
‘Tis the Spring’s largess, which she scatters now
To rich and poor alike, with lavish hand,
Though most hearts never understand
To take it at God’s value, but pass by
The offered wealth with unrewarded eye.

Thou art my tropics and mine Italy;
To look at thee unlocks a warmer clime;
The eyes thou givest me
Are in the heart, and heed not space or time:
Not in mid-June the golden-cuirassed bee
Feels a more summer-like warm ravishment
In the white lily’s breezy tent,
His fragrant Sybaris, than I, when first
From the dark green thy yellow circles burst.

Then think I of deep shadows on the grass,
Of meadows where in sun the cattle graze,
Where, as the breezes pass,
The gleaming rushes lean a thousand ways,
Of leaves that slumber in a cloudy mass,
Or whiten in the wind, of waters blue
That from the distance sparkle through
Some woodland gap, and of a sky above,
Where one white cloud like a stray lamb doth move.

My childhood’s earliest thoughts are linked with thee;
The sight of thee calls back the robin’s song,
Who, from the dark old tree
Beside the door, sang clearly all day long,
And I, secure in childish piety,
Listened as if I heard an angel sing
With news from heaven, which he could bring
Fresh every day to my untainted ears
When birds and flowers and I were happy peers.

How like a prodigal doth nature seem,
When thou, for all thy gold, so common art!
Thou teachest me to deem
More sacredly of every human heart,
Since each reflects in joy its scanty gleam
Of heaven, and could some wondrous secret show,
Did we but pay the love we owe,
And with a child’s undoubting wisdom look
On all these living pages of God’s book.

The next Speaker? Kevin McCarthy


Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s  home district, is the Californian 23rd District of California, that spans Kern, Tulare, and Los Angeles counties.  His official website is here.2018-04-12_22-43-42.pngWe have rectified the birthtime of  Kevin McCarthy, Congressman of California, to 1:46 AM or 9:46 GMT on January 26th, 1965 in Bakersfield. A native Californian, he has lived his whole life in Bakersfield, Ca, went to California State College there and continued living there with his family. showing his respect for tradition as showed by his Ascendant in the twelfth house (Morinus-Zariel method).   His grandfather was a cattleman and his father a fireman.  The Congressman is the first Republican in his family, is of Irish descent and a Baptist Christian.  He and his wife Judy have two children, Meghan and Connor.

We have reviewed and revised his chart and now put him at 23 Scorpio that gets him the image of a “little white rabbit content in his cage.  Before one’s eyes he metamorphoses into an elf in a fairy glade.”  We think that this Symbol is accurate because before running and going to Congress, McCarthy never left his hometown for any extended period going to University of California –  Bakersfield (his home town)  for both his undergraduate and graduate degrees.

                                                    McCarthy’s Astrological Disposition

McCarthy is heavily common based, and with a Grand Cross in his map, he has a Cardinal Negative disposition that Marc Jones describes as someone who is caught between the “desire to win and hold popular approval” while still being true to his underlying beliefs.  Jones give examples of Harry Houdini and Jeddu Krishnamurti, as two personalities that were similarly focused.

The Congressman has two partile aspects, one in his tenth house between the Part of Spirit and Uranus and another in his third between Venus and Mercury, making him charming and gregarious.  His Jupiter in Taurus in the sixth is the handle of his bucket, and while the sixth house is naturally well aspected, because of its distance to the Ascendant, Jupiter being trine to its house ruler, Venus in the second, does mitigate some of those problems, encouraging him to be devoted, hard working and generous with his time and resources.

pgression.png
McCarthy’s chart progressed to Friday, April 13, 2018

The major obstacle in doing this rectification was how little information we could find on the man who could be the next speaker of the US House of Representative under President Donald Trump.  It leaves a vacuum that makes rectification hard because of lack of supporting dates and events in his life.  An example is his Mars going retrograde at three years of age, but there is nothing out there that tells us what event could have affected him.  My guess is that his grandfather died, but like I said, it’s aguess.

He has an earth emphasis generated by grand cross but no squares.  McCarthy is a Jupiter bucket with no rim opposition, and one would expect his Line of Motivation to be in aspect, but it is not as it is shy a sextile from 04 Pisces in the fourth to Jupiter at 17 in Taurus in the sixth.  We could alter this and give wide orbs, I would prefer to say he has a loose destiny as defined by no aspect between the two, and that he is a man of his own creation instead of one pigeonholed from birth to what he is now.

This graph shows the importance of California

Kevin McCarthy can make things happen, that shows up his deep understanding  with what needs to be done:  his Mars, Mercury and Venus are all in the same quadrature (element) giving his great dynamic focus.  One can attest to this by his ability to raise funds from the corporate sector.    But in a world of idealogues, McCarthy is agnostic.

There has been only one  Speaker who became President, James Polk, the eleventh president,  and that was about 180 years ago, so to jump from Speaker to President is not often done, mainly because he is so tied to his party’s politics.  To overcome that, McCarthy’ would have to be very committed to that goal by convincing the American public of his trustworthiness, and diligence,   His focal determinator, Jupiter,  has the symbol of Taurus 17 degrees., “An ideological battle between swords and torches:  the disciples of might versus the disciples of light,” and requires more fixity of purpose than his mutable chart shows, but as another California admonished,  “sell no wine before its time.”

Maybelline won’t be true for Chuck Berry


Maybelline wasn’t true for Chuck Berry, but then again neither was Chuck.  He died on March 18, 2017.  His obit on Billboard  gives a fair account of his life, read it here.  While the New York Post fills in the details.  We are highlighting Chuck’s 1958 publicity shot taken from Rolling Stone’s 500 Best RnR songs of all time — Johnny B. Goode rated number seven.

Chuck Berry the Chart

 

There is a great joke in Back to the Future where Michael J. Fox at his parent’s high school prom, listening a black group plays, gets sick of the music steals a guitar, goes on stage and plays “Johnny B. Goode.”  The next cut is to the ban leader talking to his cousin, Chuck and we hear him saying “You know that new sound you’ve been looking for,” and then puts the phone in the air and lets Chuck hear his greatest hit.  Watch it here.

Nice joke from Director Steven Spielberg, but looking at this chart, there is no way that was ever true.  Charles Edward Anderson Berry’s (aka Chuck)  chart, a bucket that went wild went splish splash into a Locomotive with his Mars on the Seventh House descendant in Taurus opposite his first house, telling us that despite Saturn being there with a strict Baptist background & learning music from travelling with his father’s band, Chuck broke out of that, like he broke out of most molds.    He was very much a product of his own fertile imagination and (Pluto as the point focus) zest for all of life.

A locomotive planetary pattern does best with a lot of opposition — sort of the balanced spokes in a wheel and here too, our man Chuck, has three.  The first is his balance from Mars to Mercury — a mercurial and sometimes sarcastic turn of the phrase that always ended up being somewhere in a song.  The next opposition is from the Moon in the Creative Fifth House to Ceres in the Tenth and that was an ability to make money from his antics, and create his untrammeled, and sometimes in the case of My Ding a Ling, X-rated music .

The third opposite going from the Fourth House of Home and Family to Career is from Jupiter to Neptune and conjunct Regulus.  This is what kept him grounded and probably alive, his beloved & long suffering, Toddy and family life.

Music was an important part of Chuck Berry’s life and the Mystic Rectangle in his chart,  a configuration made of  four soft aspects and two hard ones in signs that complement each other gives emphasis to that as well.  This configuration, made of sextiles and two oppositions, gives the native a strongly balanced and integrated life that bestows not only inner harmony & the ability to bounce back from setbacks, but also the ability to channel all of it into a creative outlet.


Chuck may have toured the world but died in his native Missori on March 18, 2017. peacefully.  Besides Mrs. Berry, he is survived by their four children:  Ingrid age 67  born October 1950,  Melody, 64 and  born in November 1952 Aloha, 57  was born in August 1959 (when Hawaii entered the union)  and finally Charles Jr, 55 born in August 1961

 

Ian Brady – child murderer


Ian Brady, Britain’s child murderer and rapist, died on Monday.  Michel Gauquelin has his birth data, so we decided to view it  The chart has some asteroids, from WinStar Express, has Kepler does not depicts them at all except on a print out; I prefer Solar Fire’s integrated approach, but SF has a lot of problems running on my Win 10 Machine for whatever reason. Perhaps in an upgrade, they will fix that so to get some of the asteroids I create the chart in WinStar for publication.

Mr. Brady has a see-saw temperament type, with most of the planets located in the Southern public part of his chart. It also leans towards the Western or opportunistic side of the map, showing how he took advantage of each situation to his benefit.

See-saws or as Robert Jansky retermed them Hourglasses, are always caught in a balancing act with a shifting emphasis between the two hemispheres  in Brady’s chart between a desire to be quietly prideful (PoF at 24.58 Taurus) and an incredible desire for fame and fed into his narcissism of four planetary pairs.

The group of planets, asteroids and Arabian parts at his ascendant is disturbing.  Brady has TransPluto right next to his ascendant suggesting that he grew up in a critical and perfectionist environment wherein the personality, the ego and first house, felt picked to pieces.  As this aspect is coming from the Twelfth house conjunct Uranus, Brady took this very personally and harbored this criticism within

Across from Vesta in the Sixth House, and so creating a T-Cross with his Sun, 12 Capricorn, and highlighting the Ninth House as its focal expression.  While the Ninth is the home of long journeys, from Glasgow to London is about 400 miles, it is also the place that journalism (the Fourth Estate) resides, suggesting that he realized making his name in Glasgow would not make as big a splash as it would in London town fueling his need and desire for notoriety and publicity.

Asteroid Hygeia, not shown, is at 1 Libra, is next to Poseidon and opposite the harsh father of Saturn. This combination of public dis-health (Hygeia) in his working Sixth, coupled with desire, Poseidon, has another outlet, this time in the Third House of Brothers and Sisters at the Arabian Part of Divorce.  Could Brady have wanted to create a family for himself, of little virginal girls faithful to him, unlike his mother who serially remarried?  It is hard to say, but the chart and his murders are psychotically disturbing. Of course these two T-Crosses create one large Grand Mutable Cross supporting the See-saw configuration.

Also in his Third House, conjunct Divorce are other odd parts like the Part of Deception & Lying, and Sudden Advancement which is opposite his Sun wanting notoriety, so it would seem that to him that this was a way to make a big a splash. London’s Fleet Street  Tabloid journalism playing up his feats added to his glee.

 

17brady-obit-3-master315[1]
Ian Brady and Myra Hindley
 

As for Myra Hindley his accomplice, his chart does show Juno in the Seventh next to the Arabian part of Cooperation, opposite his Part of Fortune.  There can be no doubt that without Myra a lot of this would not have happened, as he needed a willing accomplice who supported his ambition.  Whether Miss Hindley was truly a victim of his Svengali methods as the London Times wrote,  is difficult to say, we do not have her horoscope on hard,  but with his part of marriage exact to his Saturn, there is no doubt, in my mind at least, that this was a significant relationship to Brady.

His progressed chart to his approximate time of death, shows once again everything hitting in his chart in the Tenth House of career fame.  It would seem that Brady had more than his fifteen minutes of fame, and twice.

The Charts.  The progressed is from Kepler, the Natal from Winstar.  Both are owned by Matrix.
