Rachel Cooke

Young Lady Goes Jogging and Just Disappears

Sometimes I get emails from readers making suggestions about certain cases. I appreciate this and want to encourage it: keep it up, guys! Today I am doing a chart on a missing persons case that was suggested to me by a reader. A young girl named Rachel Cooke left her home to go jogging and simply disappeared. A very similar story to the one of now famous Tiffany Sessions, who also went jogging and just disappeared. I want to dedicate this post to Koemi, a very special reader who sent me the information about this case. I would never have heard of it otherwise.

According to the "help bring Rachel home" website, with information on the case, the following are known facts:

January 10, 2002
Rachel, an accomplished cross-country runner, left her home in the Northlake development on FM 3405 northwest of Georgetown, Texas (north of Austin) on the morning of Thursday, January 10, 2002, to go on her usual 3-4 mile morning jog around the neighborhood. Sometime around 11 AM, near the end of her run and possibly within 200 yards of home, she disappeared.

On behalf of her parents, a psychic investigated this case and has posted her findings online at: Read it Here

There was also a show done on Rachel on Unsolved Mysteries on the Lifetime Channel on August 12, 2002. A synopsis of more facts were given on that program and on the website at: Unsolved Mysteries

And here is a synopsis of those facts:
SYNOPSIS: Nineteen-year-old college student Rachel Cooke was on winter break from Mesa Junior College in San Diego and was staying with her parents in Georgetown, Texas. Rachel's father left for work and when her mother, Janet Cooke left at 8:00 on the morning of January 10th, 2002, Rachel was still sleeping on the couch. When Rachel awoke, she decided to take a jog. Rachel had been on her high school cross-country team and was taking regular four-mile runs in the morning. Police believe that she left her house around 9:30. Witnesses spotted her at various points along her route. In fact, several neighbors reported seeing her at 11:00 am, near the end of her run - approximately 200 yards from her home in the Northlake Subdivision of Georgetown.

Her father, Robert arrived home around 3:00 pm to take Rachel shopping, but she wasn't home. Typically she would leave a note to tell her family of her whereabouts - even if she was going running. But there was no note and no Rachel. The community of Georgetown has organized search parties, but they have had no luck in finding any clues that might lead them to Rachel.

These events seems to create a definite time line. She left home around 9:30 am and was seen jogging by many people up until 11:00 am, when she was last spotted by neighbors. From this, we can assume that she was fine until 11:00 am. However, this does not mean that events were not in motion earlier. Perhaps she had been seen or she had been stalked or followed. And so, I ran the first chart for 10 am and went forward until noon.

The first chart drawn for 10 am shows Pisces rising and Virgo falling with Mars in the first house. The chart ruler, Neptune, is in the twelfth with Mercury, the descendant ruler. As a matter of fact, Mercury and Neptune are in very close conjunction in Aquarius. The only aspect to these two planets is a close trine from Saturn in the third. Saturn is disposed by the seventh house ruler and both Mercury and Neptune are disposed by Uranus, which disposes itself in Aquarius. This entire loop says some interesting things. She knows this person, perhaps is even meeting this person secretly! In fact, they are together at some point during this hour, in a private place unseen by others. This is born out by Neptune conjoined Mercury in the twelfth house of secrets and hidden places.

Some stray placements in the chart, like Jupiter in the fifth and both the Sun and Venus conjoined in the eleventh house of friendship, indicates that this person is a friend of hers whom she met up with of her own free will. Nothing untoward is happening at 10 am. Mars in the first simply amplifies her athletic endeavor, she is jogging! She could have been mountain climbing or surfing, it's all the same in a star chart. She is engaged in physical activity and still alive and happy and healthy!

Nothing much changes in the chart for 10:30 am. Pisces still rising, Virgo still falling. Mercury and Neptune have backed up into the eleventh house of friendship, combined with the Sun and Venus. She has run into quite a few friends along her path, perhaps other people have joined her in the run for periods of time along the way. Saturn is still in the third, disposed by Mercury and now the Moon and Pluto, in Sagittarius, have moved into the ninth house. She is intensely exercising, putting a lot of power and intensity into her workout. She may have been quite the fitness buff. And it seems like these friends of hers that she sees this morning share this interest. She may have been considering a work out with weights or a trip to the gym later on. She may have promised someone along the way that she would play basketball or go to a gym or join them for a workout sometime later this day.

An interesting twist occurs in the chart for 11:00 am. Remember that this is around the last time that anyone saw her, or said they did. In this chart, Mars has slipped into the twelfth and so has Uranus. Mercury and Neptune, the chart rulers, are still huddled together in the eleventh house but their dispositor, Uranus, has changed positions. This seems to me that she is still with one of the friends, most likely the first one she met along the way, the one she seemed to have met in secret. This is a FRIEND. There is no way it is a stranger. But the dispositor, Uranus, has slipped into the twelfth and Mars is right behind the Ascendant. I believe this "friend" made a rash, sudden decision and took Rachel by surprise. There was a sort of "kamakazi" attack, totally unexpected. This person, being an athlete himself, was quite able to overtake her with little resistance, especially now that she was tired out from her run. Pluto with the Moon conjoined in the ninth in aspect to the planets now in the twelfth shows that she was taken by force and by total surprise. This happened as close to 11 am as possible. 11:15, perhaps? It's always strange and fascinating to me that crimes happen this way, that they simply slip in between the folds of life in this odd fashion, where one moment someone sees the child and then in the next, the child is gone or dead. Amazing.

And then the chart gets very clear at 11:30 am and shows that Rachel has been taken and hidden somewhere for the moment, perhaps in someones' home. I say this because the angles have moved and Aries is now rising and Libra is falling. Venus is still with the Sun, now in the tenth house, or public sector. Mars, which rules Rachel now, is placed in the twelfth, indicating that she is hidden. Pluto and the Moon are still in the ninth so she is physically overpowered and controlled. She is intimidated emotionally, with Moon in the ninth square to Mars in the twelfth, her signature aspect. Now, I dare add this: the Descendant ruler, Venus being with the Sun in the tenth indicates that there was likely a married couple or a couple of friends, male and female, who helped with this. These planets are sextile to Mars so they were friends of hers, people she liked and were known by others to be friends of hers. I'm serious here. There is a woman or girl who was well known to Rachel, but perhaps an older woman or girl (Capricorn) and someone she had liked well enough to trust at first. This woman may even have been the "face" she saw just before they grabbed her.

But she is not dead at 11:30 am. She is hidden away in someones' home, among possessions of some sort (Saturn in the third in the second house), or perhaps, alternatively, she is in the boot or backseat of a car. A car belonging to one of the kidnappers. I must also add this: North Node in the third house, along the path she followed that day, involving her neighbors and friends, was a fated or destined situation. This was "meant to be" in a way. Preordained by the combination of Rachel's life at the time and the circumstances of the world around her. Kismet. This North Node is almost exactly square to Mars in the twelfth, a clear indicator that some action on the part of this victim brought about some of the events that led to this. Follow the trail of her lifestyle, her friends, her boyfriends, her choices in general, and the crumbs will lead you to this event and how it came about.

The chart I then drew for 12 noon drew the final curtain for me. It seems to me that it is at this time that she has died. The eighth house ruler, Pluto, has shacked up with the Moon in the eighth house of sex and death. Not good. Mars, still the Ascendant ruler and therefor the ruler of our victim, is still placed in the twelfth and is in closer square to the Moon. The Moon and Pluto are disposed by Jupiter in Cancer in the third. There is a tight 3/4 square involving the Moon and Pluto, Mars and Saturn in Gemini. She suffocated to death, perhaps during the act of sex or some other violence. However, the presence of Cancer and Pisces makes me think she might have been drowned. In a bathtub or shower, perhaps? During a sexual assault? It feels as if she was assaulted. Pluto square Mars is never gentle or quiet.

But there is an interesting aspect here. Saturn in Gemini in the second house square the other planets with Moon and Pluto disposed by Jupiter in the third, I think they might have recorded the murder. They might have started out to make sex film and it turned into a snuff film... or they might have planned it exactly this way. Why, I don't know. But then I can't make sense out of any of these insane kidnappings, murders and selling of humans for fun and profit. It's bizarre and unimaginable to me. However, looking at this chart with an intuitive eye, that Saturn in the second indicates to me that they might have planned to hold her hostage, to use her for awhile, perhaps for films or just for fun. I am not sure. But she ended up drowning or suffocating. And so there it ended. Sad. However, I am not sure the alternative would have been any better for lovely Rachel.

So now the question is, where is her body now? Where has she been hidden? In these questions, I look at both the Ascendant ruler and Saturn. Therefor, Mars in the twelfth combined with Saturn in Gemini will give me clues. Saturn is in the second house and Mars is in the twelfth so right away I can say that she is not buried in dirt or left out in the open or left in a ditch or a landfill. She is tucked away in a "possession" of some sort, such as a locker, a suitcase, locker, box, cabinet, warehouse, lock box, safe, drawer, hangar, any place or thing that can fit a body and be tucked away. And she is not buried or dropped in the ocean. With the signs Gemini and Pisces, you have to think mutable and flexible, so luggage, packaging, warehouses, closets, etc... are possible. Gemini rules travel and movement, so she could be stashed in a car or a garage, a travel trailer, an airplane, an airplane hangar, a trunk in a trunk, etc.... But Gemini also rules air and heights so it could be an upstairs closet, a top shelf of a closet, a suitcase left on a roof, etc... or even in a cabin on a mountain, if there are mountains nearby. But altogether, if I narrow it down, considering all planets, houses and signs, my best guess would be a rock quarry or mineral mine (area) near a mountain or not, where they dig up mineral rocks. It would be rather close to water or seafood, such as near a lake or pond, a fish cannery, a watermill, a mossy place on a jagged cliff or rock bank, beaches or bathhouses, etc... She would be in something small and everyday, such as a box, suitcase, appliance (such as freezer box or oven),.trunk, even garbage bags or any other everyday item large enough. One last thing, the area is hot and humid, nearly smarmy most of the time, because of the water and sand thing. There may have been fires nearby, mostly of woody areas near the ponds or lakes nearby but the fire will not endanger her remains. She is in a place high enough and moist enough to be safe from the threat of fire.
