There are so many of these cases, all of the time! I mean, how many people can go missing and end up abducted or murdered? It makes me wonder if it was this prevalent back in the days that we thought it wasn't but just wasn't on the news so much. I am not sure. It just feels like the world has descended into a kind of horror movie.

I saw this one on Nancy Grace, too, and thought it was sad. Some little girl just disappears while staying with friends? I am not sure it is safe to leave your daughter with relatives or friends nowadays, what with uncles and stepfathers doing horrible things to kids. I was hoping this was just another runaway who was with a boyfriend somewhere and would be found. I was hoping the chart would say that and I haven't even begun to read them yet so my hopes are still in that place. Do you remember my reading for Jamie Harper? The charts kept showing her taking off with a newfound love, a "soul mate" of sorts? Well, it's been an awful long time for that case and as much as I would like to believe that Jamie is ok, I have begun to suspect that although she was not abducted and did not die on the night in question, she has likely passed away since. I will do an update on her shortly. Even with that, I am hoping for the best for Shemika Cosey.

The first chart I draw up is for the time Shemika is last seen, around 1:30 in the morning hours of December 28, 2008 in Berkeley, Missouri. You can see that Libra is rising and Aries is falling. Look at the big grouping of planets around the 4th house cusp, with 5 planets in the third house and 4 in the fourth. This is almost every planet in the chart. The standout placements is an opposition from Uranus, placed in the fifth in Pisces to Saturn in Virgo in the eleventh. If you compare this chart with Shemika's solar chart, you'll see that her birth Mars in Cancer is opposed by the transiting Moon in Capricorn. The transiting Moon and Venus in Capricorn are also crossing her birth Uranus and Neptune conjunction. All of these placements tend to make Shemika rebellious and adventurous. With Saturn placed in Virgo in the eleventh aspecting Uranus in Pisces in the fifth, I would venture to guess that she was pursuing an unconventional relationship with someone older than her, who started out as a friend, who other people thought was just a friend and may have been related to one of her friends and could even have been one of the parents.

Her birth Mars is opposed to the birth Uranus, telling me that she was often impetuous, rebellious, stubborn and willing to take crazy chances. This is a marker for a person who loves excitement and can be ruthless in the pursuit of their "dreams". Mars in Cancer is a weak position that often defines a tendency towards self destruction combined with a passive aggressive personality. This birth Mars is square to her Sun in Libra and also opposing the transiting Sun, now in Capricorn. I cannot help but think that Shemika was a soft spoken Libra with the a hard head; a prime example of the iron fist in the velvet glove. She knew what she wanted and did not want to hear otherwise. She didn't want her dreams spoiled by people she thought of as "negative" and "mean". Being a Libra, Shemika believed in "love at first sight" and was willing to throw everything away for a chance at sharing her life with someone special. She was just a baby, as you can see, being about 16 years old, but women out there will remember what it's like to be 16.

Shemika Cosey: Solar chart

Her Libra Sun starts out in the transiting twelfth house, with natal Mercury following behind it. I think she made secret plans and carried them out. She was careful not to leave clues to what she was up to, but Mercury in Libra square transiting current Mercury in Capricorn tells me that she was rash and not careful enough in her decisions. So she kept this a secret but she was unable to concentrate on the larger things, like what she would do later on or how her family might feel. So what am I saying? I'm saying that, from the very first chart I see and her solar chart, I am guessing she was not abducted, at least not at first and that she planned to leave in advance and left because she wanted to. I am also guessing that a male was involved; someone she might believe she is in love with.

The cluster of planets in the fourth house tell me there were a few people at the house where she was staying. The Moon and Saturn rule the tenth and fourth houses and they are in trine aspect. The people she was staying with were basically happy, easy going and did not pay a lot of attention because they were enjoying themselves. Venus and Neptune are closely conjoined in the fourth house so the aunt was either a nurse, a caregiver, an artist of some sort or perhaps a drug dealer. She may also have been unemployed and on assistance of some sort, perhaps even disability. Any of this is possible. There is no implication in these charts that this aunt had anything untoward to do with Shemika. But if you notice the seventh house ruler is Mars, her natural solar opposite. Mars is transiting in Capricorn and is disposed of by Saturn in Virgo in the eleventh house. The person Shemika left with was an older man who has been a long time friend but who is now an object of her affections. If you also notice that there is 22 degrees of Taurus on the eighth house cusp and that this is square to the Neptune-Venus conjunction in Aquarius. I think she has been having sex with this man and no one knows about it. Theirs has been a secret love affair and I think she left this night to be with him. I do not believe, though, that she intended to stay away. I think she planned to come back home and something changed.

If you notice the Moon and Jupiter leave the fourth house for the third house between 1:30 and 2 in the morning. This, to me, shows people leaving the house and heading out. During this period, Scorpio moves onto the Ascendant and Pluto, which is already in conjunction with Mars, is also in the third. Since Pluto and Mars are now significators for Shemika, it is my belief that she actually left that house around 2 in the morning, after the others left or while they were leaving and she just went unnoticed. I do not think there was a party going on in the house, there are no markers disposing planets through the fifth house or anything like that, it just looks like family. Pluto and Mars, which co rule the chart, are suddenly in the third house, riding along with the Sun. This tells me that she got into a car with someone, whether this was in secret or not. In other words, I cannot tell if this person knew she was there. However, this does look like an older male, a man who is either part of the family or close to the family she was staying with, and he was leaving the house at this time. He would have been among the people who were present at her aunt's home.. so he must have been questioned, no? This is why I am thinking he may not have known that she sneaked into the car. If he did, then he's a conspirator in this matter and should be thoroughly investigated. Being an older male, he could easily even be the man with whom she ran off. I just cannot be entirely sure from these placements.

So I see that Shemika planned to leave and got into a car with an older male who was leaving the house, whether he knew she was there or not. Pluto and Mars again being disposed of by Saturn, a very powerful placement in this chart, tells me that she thought of this man as a friend, also. She trusted him. Saturn is in mutual reception with Mercury, which is placed in the fourth house so I am beginning to think that a member of this family helped Shemika do this. There was definitely planning going on. Now, when I say older, the chart could be describing somebody 20 years old when you compare it to Shemika or it could be describing her grandfather, if you think in terms of Saturn in general. The Sun, if you'll also notice, rules the tenth house, so I am thinking not just a man, but also somebody's father. Now, I hate to admit, this is starting to sound creepy.

I also notice that Shemikas' birth Saturn in Aquarius is near to the transiting node. Since the node backs up, it is moving away from Saturn and this tells me that she met this man a while ago. She's known him for quite some time, taking Saturn in Aquarius as a fixed sign and the node's movement backwards, I would say they'd known each other for a few years. Everyone knows they are friends, this is not a secret, but no one knows that the relationship has advanced to a sexual one. He is an adult, I believe, but, again, he could be 20 years old and not 50, but it does look like he's a parent, or, at least, has children of his own. Does Shemika babysit for any young men close or in the family? Does her aunt have brothers who have young children? These are questions that might be asked.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

At 3 am, if you notice, Pluto and Mars have both moved into the second house and the Sun has moved along with them. Venus, the seventh house ruler, is still in the fourth house, again telling me this is family. It looks like he is offering her something; money, security, a home, perhaps? Something of value in exchange for their relationship, perhaps? Venus, being conjoined to Neptune, keeps telling me this is a secret, something they are hiding from everyone. Because it is Venus, the seventh house ruler, that claims the conjunction, I believe they are hiding it for his benefit, not hers and perhaps he is married? Also noting that the Moon, which co rules the chart, is in detriment in Capricorn and has just conjoined Jupiter, also in fall. I think this man has made promises he can't keep. He has gotten this young girl, with her dreams of love and happiness, involved in a triangle and he has no intention of making her honest, which might entail him coming clean about this affair. Would this also entail leaving his wife?

So the charts so far have them getting together, secretly, for a meeting from which Shemika expected to return home. I think Shemika, being a naive young lady, probably expected this man to do the right thing. He had no intentions of leaving his wife, if he was married, or ruining his life by telling the truth. This was an indulgence on his part and nothing more. Sad. But so often true! Anyways, looking at the charts for hours into the morning, I just keep seeing them talking, him making promises. But around 7:30 am, thing begin to change. Pluto and Mars cross the Ascendant, which is just now Capricorn. Saturn has moved into the ninth house. The Moon has moved into Aquarius, a few degrees ahead of the node. I think they go off together, traveling away. On a highway, out into the "wide blue yonder", perhaps to fulfill his promise to her that they would be together? But at 8 am, Saturn, which rules the first house, has now moved into the eighth. By 8:30, the Moon is also in the twelfth, with Saturn remaining in the eighth. The eighth house cusp is now at 0 degrees of Pluto, exactly trine Pluto and Mars in Capricorn. It seems just too easy right now to kill this girl. Death aspects are in position and the trine could make it happen. But the aspects are too fleeting, they have no staying power, so I think the thought occurred to him, the opportunity came but he did not do it. At least not this night. This is not to say that I know for sure that Shemika is still alive; in fact, he might have killed her later. It's just that he did not do it on December 29

The huge cluster of planets that started out in the fourth house have now crammed into the first house. And then by 9 am, they are all moving into the twelfth house. Neptune takes over the first so I think he takes her somewhere and hides her. I know this sounds weird but I think he's either holding her against her will, like she's restrained somewhere, or he's made her promises and she is waiting somewhere of her own free will. Is there a chance she might be pregnant? Her Sun sign ruler, Venus, started out in the fifth house. Could it be that this is what it was all about? She is pregnant with his child and they are keeping this secret? He has taken her somewhere to have the baby or to have an abortion or to start a new life with his help? I know this all sounds an awful lot like As The World Turns but the charts are leading me in this direction. I leave it up to the reader to get what you can from these aspects and anyone who has a better read, I would love if you could post it! Email me a read and I will tack it onto this post as an addition.

All I can say from these charts is that Shemika left of her own will, went with an older man with whom she seems to have a relationship and is being kept somewhere, where she is still alive and well. Strange, but this is what I see. I am hoping, from these charts, that this young lady will be heard from again. Because Venus rules the first at the outset and is placed in the fifth house, I think she will be found. The fifth house ruler, Uranus, is also in the fifth house, which tells me also that she will be found. She will get in touch with her parents or caretakers. Also supporting this theory is that fact that, at the time they discover her missing, Gemini rules the fifth house (her being their child) and Mercury is right at the Ascendant, showing that she is just not far from home. In the same chart, for 8 am, the Moon is fast approaching a trine to the fifth house cusp, which is positioned at 4 degrees of Gemini. The Moon is actually translating the light from the fifth house cusp to the node. There may already be a plan in place for her to return, but that perhaps something has to happen first. The translation of light involves 9 degrees of transit in a fixed sign from the first to the fifth house, which are angular and succeedant houses, respectively. Time wise, this works out to 9 months in my book. So, once again, is this girl pregnant? Hmmm.

Putting all of this aside and moving forward with more information, I will try to describe this man she left with. This might help the family or friends make an ID. I think the girls' diary should be read, her friends should be asked questions in regards to anything she might have said about a boyfriend, a crush, or someone she may have said she was in love with. From all accounts, watching the seventh house as it develops in each chart, I can see that this is a good looking man. He has "feminine" features, in a way, qualities like a graceful walk, a lofty way of carrying himself, like a model. Without sounding rude, I must note that this man would have a "nice bod", so to speak. He has a really good complexion with softer, curly hair that might be lighter in color or lightened. Not blond; just light brown. He may have lighter eyes and lighter skin, or, at the least, he wears contacts that make his eyes hazel, green or gray. If his eyes are naturally lighter, then they are most likely hazel. He has outstanding eyes and lashes; his brows are "sweeping", meaning they are thin, long and dramatic and his eyelashes are also long, thick and noticeable. He has a shorter nose, a thick, heart shaped mouth and maybe even a dimple in his chin or in his cheeks. Most definitely a dimple! He might want to be a singer; he most definitely has a pleasant voice. This man is attractive and might think of himself as a "player". Little Shemika, no matter how she considered herself, would have been easily taken with this man. He is a charmer.

Whew! So I am done with trying to figure out what happened to this lovely young lady and in closing I will say that I hope they find her soon! In that spirit, I will ask you to look at her picture and commit it to memory. If you have seen her, think you have seen her, know something about her plans or where she might be currently, please contact the authorities at the phone number above. It would be awesome if she was found really soon and all would be well. I send my heartfelt sympathies to her family and friends. God bless.
