Toni Heartsong

Woman Murdered on Her Front Step; Husband Indicted but Set Free

From 48 Hours Mystery:

Bob says he spent most of the day at a job site in Delray Beach, 43 miles south of Jupiter. Investigators say the murder happened around 1 p.m.

"I was there 'til about 2:30," he tells police during questioning. "I mean, I’ve got five witnesses that are verifying that I was there."

Bob was later seen at a Mazda dealership in Delray at 2:45 p.m. And he says he didn’t get home until 5 p.m., when he discovered Toni’s body.

West Palm Beach FLA

Who Killed Toni Heartsong?

Although her husband was charged and indicted for her murder, he was not convicted and the case has since been closed. But who really did kill Toni? Was it her "peace loving" hippie husband? Or was it a stranger? I saw this show on 48 Hours Mystery about this case and it grabbed me. Not that I think I can solve it, as I very rarely solve any crime.. but that Astrology may give us some insight into what happened. Since the chance is there, I want to take it.

Before I launch into this case, I want to say a few things about the blog. Too many people are taking this blog way too seriously and getting bothered by the readings. I must remind everyone that this blog is about Astrology, Forensic Astrology in particular, and is not intended to be a crime solving blog or a final word on what happened to anyone. I simply ask the question, can Astrology answer this? Can Astrology solve this? And that is where it ends. This is not my opinion, in fact many of the charts end up contradicting my personal opinions. But this is the reading of Astrology charts the way they were meant to be read and if I get it right, bravo! But if not, it's not the end of the world. In the future, I am going to shift the focus away from victims and start profiling the murderers and see what Astrology can lend to that. If there were some clue, some secret key, to the personalities of people who are inclined to kill, perhaps Astrology can give that key or clue. I think that would be fascinating... so look for it in the future.

Anyways, when I drew up the charts for this murder, I was surprised by how clear and straightforward they were. I started with the time of the murder, 1 pm, and worked them backwards and then forwards to get the whole picture. The first one here is for the time of the murder, 1 pm in West Palm Beach. The chart shows Sagittarius rising with Gemini falling, Jupiter in Gemini in the sixth and Mercury in Libra in the tenth sector. Jupiter in Gemini is in fall and in the sixth house, it shows Toni to be in a bad way. Note that Jupiter is disposed of by the seventh house ruler, Mercury in Libra. The Moon is in Virgo in the ninth house, also disposed of by Mercury. This tells me that Toni was doing whatever she was doing because of her attacker. She may have come outdoors because she was called outside, drove home because she expected to see this person there, was running an errand for someone else, that sort of thing.

Noted also is the square between the Moon and Jupiter, showing Toni making rash and poor decisions. Pluto opposes Jupiter from the twelfth house, showing the actual attack. There is no doubt, from this chart, that Toni was called outside for some reason and attacked from behind. Saturn lingers nearby also in the sixth, showing that she did not die right away. Noted also is the north node in the eighth house, showing also that the murder was planned or was a part of a larger scheme. The north node is also disposed of by the Moon, the chart co ruler, showing also that this was no accident; Toni was the intended target.

I wanted to get the entire picture so I ran the charts backward a few hours and the next one I read was for 11 am. Here, Scorpio is rising, Taurus is falling, Mars is in the tenth house with the Moon and Venus is in the twelfth. Interesting. With both the Moon and Mars, the ruling planets, in the tenth house, it is saying that Toni was "out and about" so to speak, in the public eye. She was in a place out in the public, perhaps shopping, driving, walking... where she could be seen by others. In more detail, I see that both the Moon and Mars are disposed of by Mercury in the eleventh, so she is in the company of a friend or friends. She is either visiting friends or simply out in their company. Mercury is in Libra, indicating that this friend is likely a female. Was there a record of anyone being with her that morning? I am not sure if I heard this or not. However, this is what the chart seems to be saying.

Also, the seventh house ruler, Venus, is in the twelfth house, defining in many ways the person she is "about to meet". Is this person hiding? Doesn't the twelfth house seem to suggest that? Is this her future attacker? Venus is in an out of sign conjunction with Mercury and disposed of by both Mars and Pluto. Mars is in the tenth, as already noted, and Pluto is in the first. This person is hiding "in the open" so to speak and may be prepared to face Toni at the right time. Pluto in the first, also a co ruler of the first house, indicates also that Toni is where "she wants to be", doing "what she wants to do". So any hints that she might have been coerced or forced are not substantiated here.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

The next chart, for noon, has developed the dial that is present when Toni is murdered. Sagittarius is now rising with Gemini falling. Jupiter in Gemini is in the seventh house, Mercury in Libra is in the eleventh house and the Moon in Virgo is right at the midheaven. Mercury rules both the seventh and the tenth houses. The Moon, the chart co ruler, is disposed of by Mercury, as well. This tells me that the next person she comes across is a "friend" or at least someone close to her. Mercury is the prominent force in this chart and it's placed in the eleventh house of friendship. Jupiter is right at the seventh house cusp so Toni is in the presence of this person and may have made a concerted effort to connect with this person. Again, the chart is saying she is "visiting friends". The creepy part of the chart for me is the closure of Pluto on the Ascendant while directly opposed to Jupiter. Someone is going to attack her. There is no doubt about it, according to this. Someone will confront her and it won't be pleasant. I must iterate again that the disposition of Pluto by Jupiter enforces the idea that Toni is the subject of this confrontation, it is no accident, nor is it a mistake or a random act.

But since we don't need to prove that Toni was murdered, this is already known and we don't need to prove what happened to her body, as it was found on the day of her death, the only question still unanswered is who did this to her. Many people pointed at her husband and indeed it does seem like the kind of personal murder that occurs between spouses and other close relations. And, at trial, the jury let him off on a technicality, saying afterwards that they believed he actually did do it but they couldn't convict. Sort of stacks the deck, doesn't it? But since he wasn't convicted and he still claims his innocence, I thought I'd go into this with an open mind. In that spirit, I will take a close look at the seventh house and see what it might reveal.

The seventh house ruler starts out as Venus but changes to Mercury just before Toni was killed. Both Mercury and Venus spend most of the time in the eleventh house, which is telltale. As the chart says over and over again, she is in the company of a "friend" or "friends". There is no indication that this "friend" is a lover or husband. There are no pointers that aim at the fifth or seventh houses separate from the natural influences of those houses. Interestingly, I must note that Venus and Mercury are in out of sign conjunction, as well, within a close 5 degrees of each other. This is a form of "solidarity", which indicates to me that the first "friend" in her company is the same "friend" who appears later on. Or perhaps, this is TWO friends? Two friends, working in tandem? The seventh house is inhabited by Gemini, which often indicates the "twins". Two friends who were very similar in nature? Of course, this is what the chart hints at but it is up to us to read it and make sense of it.

The idea of two friends who are similar or one friend who was in two places is supported by the fact that Mercury is disposed of by Venus. And then, you must note, Venus is disposed of by Pluto. The first aspect that Mercury makes is a completion of the conjunction to Venus and since it is moving faster than Venus, this aspect is sinister. In that same vein, both Mercury and Venus are sinister to a square with Neptune, which rules the fourth house. This says it's no surprise that his person went to Toni's home. The home, in fact, was chosen by this person for the staging of this event.

I hate to say this but the charts are not pointing at her husband. Admittedly, he had an alibi that the prosecution attempted to punch holes in but was never discredited. Mercury in Libra describes someone lithe, beautiful, tall and feminine. I am NOT saying it must be a woman, however, Mercury does point at someone younger than Toni. This person, according to Astrology, would be a fine looking person with a clear complexion and a head full of thick, luxurious, light brown hair. Mercury in Libra conjoining Venus doubles this influence, with Scorpio adding sex appeal. This was a beautiful young person, perhaps a woman, or TWO women, who may have been hurt over something, jealous or angry.

In the spirit of being thorough, I must also mention that Astrology describes this person as "scatter brained, easily hurt, covetous and petty". With a chart square to Neptune, this person seems also to be deceitful, untruthful and with a hidden purpose. Was Bob having an affair, perhaps? Or was there a younger woman who was on the periphery of their relationship? Did Toni have extra marital affairs, with men or women? Is this something that should be considered? I cannot say. I do not see specific aspects pointing at lovers or secret relationships. I do not see aspects indicating any specific relationship with this person other than that this was a "friend" of Tonis.

Regretfully, I do not have a firm result from the reading and since it does not seem to point at Bob, the true murderer is perhaps still out there, enjoying his or her life, having escaped punishment. I doubt, at this point, that this crime will ever be solved to satisfaction nor will anyone else ever be charged with this crime.

Aaroné Thompson

6 Year Old Child Gets "Angry" and Disappears

From Websleuths:

Between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Monday, Aaroné Thompson disappeared from her home at 16551 East Kepner Place near Buckley Road and Mississippi Avenue.

Her father, Aaron Thompson, had called police at 2 p.m. Monday to report her disappearance.

"Police were informed she may have been upset with the father," Dudley said.

A command post was set up near the home about 8:30 p.m. Monday, and 10 to 15 officers searched an area close to the home. The search was halted at 3:15 a.m. Tuesday but resumed at 8:30 a.m.

The search area Tuesday was roughly between East Alameda Parkway to the north, Mississippi Avenue to the south, Buckley Road to the east and South Kalispell Way to the west.

Searchers went door to door, asking residents of homes, apartment complexes and businesses if they'd seen the little girl.

In the afternoon, the bloodhound picked up a strong scent of the girl in an area between East Exposition and East Mississippi avenues, police said. The dog lost the scent, but officers converged on the Settlers Village neighborhood, searching in large trash bins and buildings.

Police said they were somewhat frustrated because the family had not been helpful.

"The family is not as cooperative as we hoped they would be," Dudley said. "We hope that would change because time is precious right now."

He declined to explain how the family has not been cooperative, but noted that the photograph the family released of the girl is more than a year and half old.

Dudley also said there have been questions about the father, since he was the last person to see the girl.

"Any time you have a situation like this, when we don't have enough information, it goes back to who saw her last," he said.

However, Carol Rodriguez, 44, who lives next door to the Thompsons, said she saw a strange car parked in the family's driveway Monday afternoon, which she thought was unusual.

"They don't ever have a car in the driveway," she said. "You don't see a lot of people over there."

She said she saw the car, which she thought was a silver 2002 Alero or a Grand Am, sometime between 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. Monday.

"We left (on an errand) and an hour later, when we came back, it was gone," she said, adding that she had not seen the car before.

Anyone with information about Aaroné Thompson's whereabouts is asked to call Aurora police at 303- 739-6050 or 303-739-6051.


This case was email to me by a loyal reader that has emailed me many other cases in the past. I am always interested in cases that don't get publicity, that you don't see on Nancy Grace. I think there are way too many children that go missing and are far too quickly forgotten. However, this case has a huge, long story involved in it, including an indictment brought against the father for child abuse involving his other children and a tip claiming that the child was buried in a field nearby but the body has never been recovered. You can read about all of the ins and outs of this fascinating case atThe Charley Project.

This little girl simply disappeared and no one is really looking for her now. She is assumed dead although the other children continue to insist she simply ran away. Is she dead? Or is she alive somewhere? Her family gave what I believe to be a crazy story about her disappearance, saying that this small child stormed out of the house after an argument over a cookie. Children often throw fits and make displays but they seldom go running off far enough away on their own to be a runaway at this tender age. 12 and up, maybe. 6 years old, I think not.

There is no doubt that something untoward happened to Aerone. She did not run away. That just doesn't fly with me, so I thought I'd do a chart and see what it says.

In this case, because the child is so young, I read the aspects as they apply to the parent. This child is not "in charge" of her situation, no matter how "headstrong" they say she is. When she stormed out, she could not have just gone off on her own and controlled the outcome as an adult would. So I will be reading the fifth house as her designator.

If you look at the chart for 1:30 pm, the time at which the father claims the child left the house, you will see that the first house is Pisces and the fifth house is Cancer. Looking closely you'll see that Neptune is square the Moon from the twelfth to second houses. This immediately verifies a conflict between the child and daddy. An argument or aggravation of some sort. The child ruled by the Moon in the second wanted possession of something and the father, ruled by Neptune in the twelfth, hid it to prevent access. This angered the child, no doubt. The Moon is also conjunct Mars, so the child may have acted out. But this aspect may also describe violence directed at this child, or any other child, in fact, because it involves the fifth house ruler. Notice also that the Moon and Mars are both disposed of by Venus in the child's seventh house and the father's eleventh. There was a woman involved in this, interacting with the child. Venus is in the eleventh house of the father so this is likely an adult that was a friend of the family.

I do notice that the first house ruler, Neptune, is in mutual reception with Uranus in the first, telling me that the father behaved erratically in this event and did something unexpected. This continuing mutual reception from Uranus to Neptune is a huge factor in many cases I currently see. It is a facilitator of events and causes strange things to happen, especially where either Neptune or Uranus rule the angles. Daddy has done something unexpected, that's for sure, but what that is is not clear. Venus is in good aspect to the fifth house planets to I assume there was female who acted as a "buffer", who calmed things down and even defended the child.

In the chart for 2 pm, Venus moves. The movement of Venus into the child's sixth house, shows someone is in a bad way and danger looms. This house also being the tenth house of the father, there is no way this child was not visible to him. She was out "in the open" and easily seen. But we must also note that Saturn has backed into the child's first house and that it is disposed of by the Sun in the eighth house. Ouch. Saturn is notably square to the child's ruler, the Moon, and to Mars, closely aligned. Daddy knew exactly where this child was; she was not hidden, out of view or "run off". On the other end, Saturn is squared by Jupiter, also in the eighth, and the ruler of the tenth house. Also notice that the Moon and Mars have now moved into the child's third house, showing her being put in a car. Interestingly enough, a neighbor reported a car in the driveway around this time and the chart is supporting that. Someone needs to find out who was driving that car. The chart seems to say that daddy knows.

In reading the chart, we cannot ignore outlying aspects like the conjunction (EXACT conjunction) from the Moon to the fixed star, Schedir. This always describes escape or "being set free". This is an interesting element added to this event and cannot be ignored. Another interesting element that must be taken into account is the status of the tenth house ruler. To the father's angles, the tenth house ruler is via combust way, showing that someone in the family was either in a bad way or directly in some sort of danger. Now, this does not mean their lives were in danger but financial situations can be dangerous, as well. There is emphasis on the father's second house and the financial cost of the child. Perhaps there were looming debts. That could be the danger that the aspect alludes to. Domestic violence is another danger that cannot be ignored; especially since, in this case, there are claims of such violence against the children. Other interesting asides I feel like addressing are the ruler of the fourth house, Mercury, being in fall in the ninth house, in the sign Sagittarius, showing the mother figure to be absent or weak and that the Node has moved into the father's first house, showing a coming together of sorts, a "timing" effect and perhaps even a plot or scheme involving others.

With all of this said, I am daring to say that these charts show the child dead.. and dead rather quickly. Was this an accident that was later covered up? Or was it discipline that went too far? Or was this a plot that was finally acted on? Perhaps she was already dead. A thought I must add here is that the tenth house ruler, Jupiter, is in Scorpio in the eighth house and square to the first house ruler, Neptune, which lingers in the twelfth in Aquarius. This might describe a drug problem. Did someone have a problem with alcohol or drugs? I am not saying this is so, I am merely pointing out that the chart alludes to this possibility.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

By 3 pm, the Leo rules the fifth and the Sun is high in the eighth with Saturn lingering in the child's first house. I am afraid she is dead. The Sun is disposed of by the Moon conjunct Mars in the first house, the house of the father and the third of the child. I believe they took the child off in the car. She was either dead already or killed right away, not taken elsewhere and used for other purposes or kept. The Moon and Mars are in the father's first house and also in the child's third, so I am positive the father knew that the child went in the car.. but it's unlikely he went along because he was calling the police at 2 pm. In my mind, (excuse me, I am not pointing fingers) but a half hour seems an awfully short period of time to spend looking for a child before calling the police. He apparently knew, right away, that she was not coming back. This leaves me with a lot of questions. When you make note that, at this time in the event chart, the Sun in Scorpio is conjunct the fixed star, Unukalhai, the question of drugs pops up again. And this may be why, after only a short period of time, the police called off the search for Aarone. They may have known about the drug activity and/or the father's involvement.

This case is no doubt complicated and if you read the news you will see how far it goes. I am not sure the child died on this day, the charts show her dead but not exactly how and when she died. It is possible she was dead, as others have reported, for quite some time and simply moved out of the home on this day, accounting for the car in the drive. However, the car may have simply been a visitor looking for drugs or just a place to park. But it does seem convenient and improbable that the car was inconsequential. Although they have not found her body and have not indicted daddy for her murder, I believe she is dead and that daddy knew.. or was the killer. I cannot prove this. I am simply an Astrologer profiling forensic charts. So in the spirit that I may be nuts and the kids are telling the truth, we should be vigilant in looking for clues to the whereabouts of Aarone. Even if it means checking roadsides and fields for her body. So here is her picture for those of you who might be still looking out for this precious child. And, of course, if you see her or find out anything about her, call the number in the prologue above.
