Jamie Harper

Young Woman Does Not Return From Late Night Party

Jamie Harper was last seen at a late night party from which she was due to return and spend the night at a friends house. She never returned to that location and has not been seen since. She left everything behind, including her medication for epilepsy. She has never contacted family or friends since this fateful evening. I use the term fateful with great purpose, as you shall see.

Astrologers who have a mind to do this chart will find it very entertaining! What did I find? Well, Aquarius is rising and there is a large grouping of planets in the first house, including the rulers of both the Ascendant and Descendant. The co-ruler Moon is exactly at the Midheaven and it's disposited by Mars, which is exactly conjoined the Ascendant. And the most telling of all, the ruler of the Ascendant and the ruler of the Descendant are conjoined with the Moons North Node. Hmmmm.... can we say "fateful" again? LOUDER!

What I can say from looking at the chart is that what happened this night was fated (again?) and "meant to be" as people are fond of saying. Her meeting with this person, most likely a male, was like a thunderbolt! Have you ever had a moment when you saw another person and you thought, "alas!". This is a strongly fated, well connected meeting between two people and it influenced everything that happened afterwards.

The Ascendant ruler, Uranus is in Pisces and the Descendant ruler, the Sun, is also in Pisces. It seems, from this vantage point, that Jamie Harper was "ready for anything", expecting the expected, excited about sudden chances. She laid her eyes on this young man and jumped at the mutual attraction. Neptune lingers nearby with Mercury so they had drinks or drugs and talked... and talked. Both of their planets were disposited by Neptune, so the "feeling was mutual". They were entranced with each other. Love and lust can be like a drug, indeed, and this night these people felt it. Jamie's co-ruler, the Moon, at the Midheaven, is disposited by Mars at the Ascendant. It is co-disposited by Pluto in the eleventh house. She was actually the aggressor in the matter, calling the shots and making quick, impulsive choices. She went out of her way to push friends away, even being difficult with them, in order to get off alone with her new find. And after they did get off alone, things began to really roll.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

The fact that Mars rules the Midheaven and that the Moon is right there, I would assume there were people who were publicly aware of the attraction between these two people. Someone, no doubt, saw them getting into each other. Not that this was problem, just that someone did see them together, no doubt. And that person did know one or the other of them, as is shown by Plutos placement in the eleventh house of friends. And this person, who was a friend to either Jamie or her new boyfriend, kept this event to him or herself and hasn't told anyone. This is seen in the disposition of Pluto by Jupiter in the tenth house. She or he just felt so good about these two and saw them having such a good time that she or he refuses to "ruin it" by sending the cops after them.

What happens after they take off is kind of murky. The chart shows no signs of violence, evil intent or other machination. Saturn is posited in the seventh house, showing that the male was a bit older and perhaps not typical of her usual interests. This same Saturn in the seventh in Leo is retrograde and shows that it will be a long, long time before they reveal what happened when Jamie went off with her new found love. It is strange she left behind her medication and other belongings but she may have been convinced that they could start a new life over elsewhere and these items would be easily replaced. Or it might be that at some point things went south and he forced her to come along and she was unable to get back to her belongings. But I must repeat that the chart shows no signs of violence, indeed shows two people fated to meet one another and enjoyed the sudden attraction.

So where did Jamie go? Well, if they want to try to track her and find her, I would say to start looking southeast of Rantoul, where she disappeared. They travelled a great deal southeast (as the dial turns it moves through the twelfth, eleventh and tenth houses very quickly) and then eventually turned south. So the way I would pace it would be this: travel 4 hours southeast from Rantoul and that time, turn south and travel south another 2 hours. It would be in this area that they finally surfaced and made their presence public.

And who did Jamie go with? Well, taking the chart, we see that the Sun is in Pisces. This describes a young man who is a little fleshy, not skinny, sort of plump but not outright fat. He has a round face with a very nice complexion and a well shaped mouth and chin. He most likely has brown hair and it is probably curly and thick. Not frizzy but curly. He has very expressive, sensitive eyes, either blue or grey in color. He tends to gain weight and has to watch what he eats. This young man is very kind and loving, tends to be imaginative and even inspirational. He is very intuitive and fond of the unusual, liking the secret adventure the two of them are sharing. The only negative thing I can see about this person would be that he tends to be shy and lacking in self esteem at times. Self confidence is often lacking. By what I see with Jamie's planets in this chart, I would say that she is in charge and he is a willing participant in her exciting adventure.

Want to do this chart and prove me wrong? Jamie Harper was last seen at 4:30 in the morning on March 10, 2007 at a party in Rantoul, Illinois. Please post your findings in the comment section!

Jeremy Ivan Childress

Man Goes Missing On Hunting Trip

Jeremy Childress was last seen on a hunting trip with a male friend and his young son. The three men were on a annual Elk hunting trip in the Tillamook National Forest in Oregon. He was armed with a rifle and had with him his car keys and a knife. He was not an easy target for some casual attacker and being that he was way out in the woods, it is unlikely somebody followed him out there with evil intent. What actually happened was that the three men got lost in the forest and split up to find their way home. His friend and his son found their way back to camp but Jeremy just disappeared, never came back to camp and has been missing now for several years. Nothing was taken from his home, his car was left behind, there are no pointers that indicate he ran off. He simply vanished in thin air.

The general consensus to this day in Oregon is that Jeremy got lost, had an accident, got himself injured or other mishap and died in the woods. Since then, his wife has obtained a death certificate on him based on this assumption so that she would be able to get on with the business of their properties and such. And being that it is generally believed that this is true, why on earth would it matter what the chart said? And, better yet, if the chart showed nothing different, then what would be the purpose of even doing it? Well, I do believe that it might serve a twofold purpose. One to show the brilliance of Astrology and two, to perhaps give guidance as to where Jeremy may lay, be it that he is dead. And, so with these solemn purposes, I went about the drawing of the chart and this is what I found.

As so many other missing persons charts, I find Pisces rising and Virgo falling. Gemini on the nadir and Sagittarius on the midheaven. Neptune in the twelfth in Aquarius and Uranus in the first house in Pisces. The descendant is occupied by Venus, Jupiter and Mars. The Moon is close to the midheaven mark in Sagittarius. Looks like a good day for hunting!
Now, you ask, is there a kidnapper, a perpetrator, a killer? And even better still, is there even a victim?

Well, the chart bears out quite a bit of what we already know. Mercury as ruler of the Descendant is in Scorpio in the ninth house conjoined with the Sun. Here is the father + son combo who accompanied Jeremy hunting. Mercury representing our youth and the Sun his father. Mercury is disposited by Pluto at the midheaven, which tends to show violence. It is in Sagittarius so might we assume that they shot some deer that day? Being that Mercury represents the boy and he was a very young boy, I am reluctant to say that Pluto points to violence from the child. Especially since he was in the company of his father (the Sun) all day and night. I feel perhaps the boy was "dealing with violent feelings" during the course of the hunting trip, no doubt because it was the first time he shot at animals. Consider the sign, Sagittarius, the hunter.

Although Mars in the seventh house I don't see it having any serious aspects in the chart. It is disposited by Venus, which in turn sits in the seventh and is disposited by Mercury, once again pointing at the child. So now I am wondering, did the boy accidentally shoot Jeremy? Did they bury him and hide the truth? Is that possible?

Discuss This Case At My Forum

Looking at Jeremy's planets, we see Neptune in the twelfth, which right away tells me that he is hidden well. Uranus is close to the Ascendant, which indicates an accident, sudden circumstances or unexpected behavior. There is a possibility that the boy accidentally shot Jeremy and then they tossed him somewhere to keep from being caught. But I cannot say this for sure. The Moon in the ninth is the only planet contacting Uranus. It is squared to Uranus, which is in the first house. The Moon is traditionally the co-ruler of the "victim" so I am looking at that to represent Jeremy Childress. So here it looks as if he is the cause of his own accident. A sudden, rash decision or an unforeseen situation arises. And with this combo, whatever happened to our missing man was an accident or the result of a rash decision. It is possible that someone shot him accidentally and hid him... or it's also possible that he made a stupid mistake and ended up dead.

Since we agree that he is dead and hidden, then where on earth would that be? Well, looking at the Ascendant combination of planets, Neptune in the twelfth and Uranus in the first, I would say it's in a body of water. He slipped into a pond. He tripped over a sunken hole with quicksand. He fell off a cliff or ridge and landed in a lake. I do not know what bodies of water exist in that area but I would say that's where people should look. Saturn, the planet of death, is also in a water sign, Cancer, and placed in the fifth house. This means a place of recreation. His body is decomposing in a waterhole where people go swimming. It is likely it is now nothing but bones.

Will they ever find Jeremy Childress? Well, we can tell by looking at movement towards the tenth house, where we find public knowledge. The Midheaven is ruled by 15 degrees of Sagittarius. Neptune, the victim's marker, is in 12 degrees of Aquarius. Tracking the movement of Neptune towards the Ascendant, we see that is will make contact in 3 degrees. Neptune in a fixed sign, placed in a cadent house, means years. Jeremy Childress will surface, so to speak, sometime after 3 years from the date that he disappeared. Giving a few months or so for retrograde motions, I would guess something will happen early in 2008. Perhaps kids will swim in the waterhole or pond in the Spring or early Summer and.... he might make his appearance then.

For Astrologers who wish to do comparison charts, Jeremy Ivan Childress disappeared on October 17, 2004 in Tillamook County, Oregon. He was last seen by anyone on that day at 4:30 pm PST. -- ma.gnolia -- Netscape -- RawSugar -- StumbleUpon
