Jacqueline Nicole Vienneau

French Canadian Woman Goes Missing In Syria

From Find Nicole:

Name: Jacqueline Nicole Vienneau
Last Seen: March 31, 2007
Location: Cairo Hotel, Hama, SYRIA
Nationality: Canadian
Age: 33 (looks younger)
Height/Weight: 5' 6" and 130 pounds

Other: Brown hair, Brown eyes, wears contacts. She was last seen wearing a long-sleeve red shirt with white sleeves, long khaki pants with side pockets, gray and blue New Balance running shoes, a red baseball cap, red-tinted sunglasses and carrying a small blue knapsack.

Circumstances of Disappearance: Nicole was last seen the morning of March 31, 2007 by the staff of the Cairo Hotel in Hama, Syria as she left for a day of sightseeing in the area. She did not return, and has not been seen by anyone since. She left her personal belongings at the hotel.

She was last seen by the desk clerk at 8:30 in the morning as she left the Cairo Hotel in Hama, two hours north of Damascus.


This is a complicated and difficult case. The timeline of events as they occurred after Nicole disappeared is way too lengthy to include all of it here but if you wish to read about this case, you can see it at her brother's daily weblog, available HERE. She disappeared on the morning of March 31, or, at least, has not been seen by anybody since then, but the knowledge of that fact was delayed because she was so far from home. In Canada, her family did not sound alarms for a week or two, because she was sightseeing in Syria and was only contacting them every week or so. But there has been a long and detailed search, missing persons reports were issued in Syria and the local areas and the RCMP, the Canadian Embassy and Interpol got involved, so it cannot be said that efforts weren't made. But I must say that anyone planning to travel in a foreign country should take this case to heart; traveling alone is not a good idea, especially if you are a female. In a country such as Syria, where their attitudes and treatments of women are far different than ours, you should always bring a friend or at the very least arrange for a local contact.

Nicole is still missing. Her credit cards and bank accounts have been left alone and they are pretty sure (although not completely so) that she is not in a Syrian prison or prison in a neighboring country. Interpol has accessed her email accounts and been through her hotel room and has found no clues. The big question they have, regarding what evidence they have been able to trace, is whether or not Nicole even made it to the bus stop that morning after leaving the hotel. This is a credible suspicion because people who recall seeing her WEEKS before her disappearance do not recall seeing her after the last of March. Syrians do notice a Canadian woman in their midst, believe me. There were also extortion attempts that muddied the water; people saying they had her when they didn't. So the case is scattered, complicated and almost impossible to investigate. The best that could be done has been done. So what will the charts tell us? At the very least, we'll see if she got on that bus and whether or not she was still alive on the evening of March 31.

The first chart I draw up, for the morning of March 31, I see right away that Nicole is not alone. Gemini is rising and Mercury is in the eleventh house of friends in conjunction with Uranus and the north node. She is with someone else that morning, someone she met suddenly in Syria and made previous plans with. They had planned their morning together in great detail and were going off together to sightsee. Notice that Jupiter, the seventh house ruler, is in the seventh in the sign Sagittarius, in dignity. This person was a fellow traveler who had better knowledge of the region than she did. The fact that Uranus rules the tenth house also tells me that this person is a person in "authority", someone with stature and public presence. This person was to be Nicoles' "guide" around town this morning. I put quotes around the word authority because both Mercury and Uranus are disposed of by Neptune in the tenth so the story she was told may be false. In other words, this person may have claimed to be a politician or a local authority but have lied. Notice that the Moon, which is Nicole's co ruler, is in the fifth house. This hints that not only did Nicole expect this person to show her a "good time" but she may have been attracted to this person as well.

One more thing I want to add is that Mercury, the chart ruler, is opposed to the Moon, which is the co ruler. This tells me that Nicole went against her better instincts this morning and trusted somebody she wasn't sure she could. She took a risk, going on her emotions (the Moon) against her better senses (Mercury). I get the feeling that Nicole was a broad minded humanitarian type who did not judge people harshly. And here is the thing. In the chart for the next hour, at 9 am, the Moon has moved into the fourth house. Mercury is right at the midheaven, in conjunction, in fact. It is also EXACTLY square to the fixed star, Ras Algethi, which literally translates as "a devious plot is involved." Also to be considered in the chart is that Mercury, the Moon and Jupiter are all involved in a T-square, with Jupiter as the outlet. Jupiter rules the seventh house. And in this T-square we also have Ras Algethi. Nicole was obviously in "a jam" of sorts; she wanted to visit an area she could not get access to, perhaps. And this person promised to take her. I'm not saying this is exactly the case, just an example of possibilities. Since the seventh house ruler outlets for the T Square, which involves her ruling planets, there is no doubt that this person provided a solution to some problem she was having. The exact conjunction of the node to Uranus makes me think that the whole thing was a scheme.

Jupiter is such a powerful planet in this chart. It starts out ruling the seventh house, which is very telling. It is collecting light, as well, from both Saturn in Leo and Uranus in Pisces. And the Moon is sinister to a square. This makes the person who was in her presence both powerful and masterful. If this person had dastardly intentions she did not have the power or the strength to overcome it. Her chart ruler, Mercury, is in fall in Pisces and sinister to a square, an opposition and an inconjunction. This basically clouded her judgment and made her vulnerable and unable to save herself. The Moon having moved into the fourth house by 9 am indicates that she went to someone's home or office. She was taken there, basically, as she was in the company of someone else from the git go. I do not see any sign that she was taken against her will. But this would explain her not getting on the bus. She was led off elsewhere, perhaps to take other transportation. You will see in the next chart that this makes total sense.

When you notice that the Moon is translating light from Mercury to Jupiter, you can pretty much tell that she went willingly. She actually made the effort to seek this person out, as was previously planned. This person may have been waiting outside the hotel, I am not sure, but she caught up with him or her right away. Nicole was not on that bus, as was expected. She was waylaid elsewhere. In the next chart, for 9:30 am, Jupiter still rules the seventh and it falls into the sixth. With the Moon still in the fourth, this indicates that they went to this person's office and not the home. This is where he or she works. So they went there before setting off on the sightseeing tour that Nicole seems to have planned. Perhaps she was told that some work needed to be done quickly that morning; a return of a phone call, a picking up of a message, checking the email, perhaps. Nicole's rulers, Mercury and the Moon, are still in the angular axis, indicating that they are "out in the open" where they could be seen. It is not known if they were seen, actually, but at this point they were not hiding on purpose.

At around 9:45 am, Cancer rolls onto the Ascendant and Capricorn is falling. Saturn is now placed in the third house with the Moon following. They are leaving to go on their trip. Saturn in the third implies that her companion is providing the transportation, whether that is a car or not is hard to tell, considering cultural differences. Just that this person provides the method by which they are traveling. This may even be another, different bus. But notice how the Moon follows Saturn at this point, semi sextile in aspect, indicating that this person is leading the way and Nicole is following along, willingly. Again, I do not see her being forced. Coerced, perhaps, but not forced. Within moments of 9:45, the Moon follows into the third house. Do you know what this looks like to me? This person went and got the vehicle they would be using and came around for Nicole and she went along. This explains the delay between one moving and the other lagging behind, doesn't it? Especially when the lag is more than a few minutes; the time at which she seems to "get in" the vehicle is after 10 am, more than 15 minutes later! To be exact, 10:15 am, the chart for which follows.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

In this chart, the Moon is disposed of by Mercury in the ninth, the tenth and fourth house rulers are also in the ninth, the node is in the ninth, while Saturn is disposed of by the Sun in the tenth. This combination seems to say that they are out and about in the country, exploring "foreign" areas that are rather wild or unsettled, such as deserts, old ruins, caves or other "wild" and "out of the way" places. But they are "out in the open", along roadways or other public areas. Perhaps moving among crowds of tourists; that makes a lot of sense. Saturn, now the seventh house ruler, is in the second house which says that this person she is with is "making money" or "collecting money" or dealing with money is some fashion. Perhaps he is a merchant or trader and offered to take her to the markets. The other possibility is that he is spending money on her, taking her places and entertaining her. But Saturn is trine Jupiter in the sixth, which seems to indicate work and money together, so the first scenario is more likely.

Saturn is in accidental fall in the sign Leo in the second house and it is opposing Neptune, the tenth house ruler. Saturn is also retrograde. This reduces the power and strength of the planet and describes her companion as now being at a disadvantage. I think at some point it was exposed that he or she had lied in some way. The "scheme" or lie was revealed. He or she did not have the knowledge they had claimed to have. Or did not have access to areas they had promised. Something like this. Saturn is inconjunct to Uranus, hinting that perhaps a miscalculation caused this to happen. I cannot tell from the charts whether this caused a scene or a fight, in fact, it doesn't look that way at all. Moving the charts forward through the hours ahead, I see Nicole on her own, moving along, traveling. It's as if she separated from this phony and got off on her own, perhaps way off her original path or in a place where she got lost. She does not appear to be with the same person over time and it looks like she travels around a lot. At one point, she is trying to get money. Whether she did nor not would be a matter of record. But late in the morning, money became an issue. Perhaps she had expected her original companion to pay for everything and then, after this person was revealed as an imposter, she was left with her own resources, which may have been meager. And it looks like she was traveling a lot.

Now, I know the next question would be, in what direction was she traveling? Well, according to the charts and the traditional interpretations, she was coming from an area northeast of where she started out and was now traveling south by southwest, presumably attempting to get back to her starting place. Even as late as 1 pm, when Leo rules the chart and the Sun is in the ninth, you can see that she is still alive and traveling over open terrain. She was NOT in a city. She was out in "open" somewhere. I am totally unaware of the terrain of Syria, other than that my hamster is from there and it's got a lot of deserts and the hamster, whose name is Boo, digs tunnels in desert sand. So I am helpless in this matter; I just know she is not in a city or on a major highway. She is out "in the wild", whatever that is in Syria.

In the next chart, for noon, a new person has appeared. Capricorn has just moved onto the descendant and Saturn is now at the first house. This person presents to her, an introduction occurs. Moments later, the chart changes drastically. Leo takes over the first house and Aquarius is falling. The Sun in the ninth with Uranus shows that they met traveling, on the road. In a bus, perhaps? The node close to Uranus makes it look like a sudden event, the meeting, but that a plan was immediately made. They weren't together, but I think this person offered to travel with her, to help her, or to show her around. Saturn, which co rules Aquarius and is in dignity in that sign, is also disposed of by the Sun, which rules the first house. This person had "designs" on Nicole. No doubt about it. Mars rules the tenth house so they may have been in "rough terrain" and she may have been glad for the help.

At 12:30 pm, Uranus and the node join Mercury in the eighth. This looks like a scheme is hatched. A secret plot, of sorts. Mercury makes it seem like a younger person was used as a part of the ruse; in the middle east men often marry much younger women, so this may have been a "child bride". The Sun, Nicole's ruler, is disposed of by Mars, which in conjoined Neptune in the seventh. Neptune, if you also notice, disposes of the seventh house ruler. The ruse is used to bring them together and although Nicole is suspicious and questioning them aggressively, they manage to fool her. Mars is dexter to Neptune, which means she missed something. She overlooked something important in the matter; something they were lying about, perhaps. Moon is in the second so they may have assumed she had money. Perhaps they had seen her with money earlier; the chart showed her looking for money or spending some of it at one point.

Sometime between 1:30 and 2:00 in the afternoon, Nicole stopped traveling. Whether she got off a bus or came to a rest area or left a sightseeing group is just not discernable. But she did stop traveling. Notice in the 2 pm chart the big group of planets in the seventh house with Mars at the cusp. Notice also that the Sun has moved into the eighth and Saturn has crossed into the twelfth. Jupiter trines Saturn from the fourth. I think they jumped her and killed her quickly. It does not look like they hid her or took her anywhere alive. She was not raped or tortured or put through any ordeal. The aspects showing an attack or assault are simultaneous with the death. It was instant. So she did not suffer. And it seems to have been over money they believed she had.. or knew she had from seeing her spend some earlier. Uranus opposes the Moon on the first house axis. It was a quick, sudden confrontation. Mars and Neptune oppose Saturn from the seventh house cusp to the twelfth house. They sneaked up on her, attacked her and her death was very swift. Sun, the chart ruler, in the eighth house is disposed of by Mars, showing that her death occurred as a direct result of a physical assault. Venus, the tenth house ruler, is placed in the ninth, showing the terrain where they were to be "rough" and "outdoorsy". They were in a vast, unpopulated area.

It is an attractive area, however, with a lovely landscape. Venus in Taurus is in dignity and has great power at the midheaven. This may help those who are searching. The area would be one with fields of plants, wheatfields, perhaps, or other grains and maybe nearby pastures with cattle or other livestock. There may also be dark, hidden areas in the landscape such as caves or burrows where animals hide. There may be plowing or cultivating going on in this area. There may also be nearby fields with colorful flowers. This is where Nicole ended up. Looking at Saturn in Leo, I think it is somewhere with large animals (do they have wildcats in Syria?) and may be a desert area. Someplace hot and sunny. Also, it must be noted, that there was more than one person involved in her death. Two adults and one young female, it looks like. These people had nothing to do with her earlier foray with the person she had met in the morning. No connection whatsoever. But what the earlier side trip did was through off the searchers. She did not start out as she usually did; she had made plans with someone she had met and those plans fell through later, leaving her on a different route in a different area than she intended. This placed her where she was when she was robbed and killed. It is interesting that none of her cards or bank accounts were touched afterwards, indicating that these were simple people who didn't know what to do with anything but cash. And it may have been a small amount of cash; after all, many people are very poor everywhere, including America. To many people, a few dollars means a meal for the week. And a precious life is not valued by these people the way we value life; poverty has made them angry and terrified of living. So life has little value to them.

Tupac Shakur

Rapper Shot From Passing Car; Shooter Never Found

From Wikipedia

September 1996 shooting and death

On the night of September 7, 1996, Shakur attended the Mike Tyson - Bruce Seldon boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After leaving the match, one of Suge's associates spotted 21 year-old Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson, a member of the Southside Crips, in the MGM Grand lobby and informed Shakur. Shakur then attacked Anderson. Shakur's entourage, as well as Suge and his followers assisted in assaulting Anderson. The fight was captured on the hotel's video surveillance. A few weeks earlier, Anderson and a group of Crips had robbed a member of Death Row's entourage in a Foot Locker store, precipitating Shakur's attack. After the brawl, Shakur went to rendezvous with Suge to go to Death Row-owned Club 662 (now known as restaurant/club Seven). He rode in Suge's 1996 black BMW 750iL sedan as part of a larger convoy including many in Shakur's entourage.

At 10:55 p.m., while paused at a red light, Shakur rolled down his window and a photographer took his photograph. At around 11:00-11:05 p.m., they were halted on Las Vegas Blvd. by Metro bicycle cops for playing the car stereo too loud and not having license plates. The plates were then found in the trunk of Suge's car; they were released without being fined a few minutes later. At about 11:10 p.m., while stopped at a red light at Flamingo Road near the intersection of Koval Lane in front of the Maxim Hotel, a vehicle occupied by two women pulled up on their right side. Shakur, who was standing up through the sunroof, exchanged words with the two women, and invited them to go to Club 662. At approximately 11:15 p.m., a white, four-door, late-model Cadillac with an unknown number of occupants pulled up to the sedan's right side, rolled down one of the windows, and rapidly fired twelve to thirteen shots at Shakur. He was struck by four rounds, with bullets hitting him in the chest, the pelvis, and his right hand and thigh. One of the rounds apparently ricocheted into Shakur's right lung. Suge was hit in the head by shrapnel, though it is thought that a bullet grazed him. According to Suge, a bullet from the gunfire had been lodged in his skull, but medical reports later contradicted this statement.

At the time of the drive-by Shakur's bodyguard was following behind in a vehicle belonging to Kidada Jones, Shakur's then-fiancée. The bodyguard, Frank Alexander, stated that when he was about to ride along with the rapper in Suge's car, Shakur asked him to drive Kidada Jones' car instead just in case they were too drunk and needed additional vehicles from Club 662 back to the hotel. Shortly after the assault, the bodyguard reported in his documentary, Before I Wake, that one of the convoy's cars drove off after the assailant but he never heard back from the occupants.

After arriving on the scene, police and paramedics took Suge and a fatally wounded Shakur to the University Medical Center. According to an interview with one of Shakur's closest friends the music video director Gobi, while at the hospital, he received news from a Death Row marketing employee that the shooters had called the record label and were sending death threats aimed at Shakur, claiming that they were going there to "finish him off". Upon hearing this, Gobi immediately alerted the Las Vegas police, but the police claimed they were understaffed and no one could be sent. Nonetheless, the shooters never arrived. At the hospital, Shakur was in and out of consciousness, was heavily sedated, was breathing through a ventilator and respirator, was placed on life support machines, and was ultimately put under a barbiturate-induced coma after repeatedly trying to get out of the bed.

Despite having been resuscitated in a trauma center and surviving a multitude of surgeries (as well as the removal of a failed right lung), Shakur had gotten through the critical phase of the medical therapy and was given a 50% chance of pulling through. Gobi left the medical center after being informed that Shakur made a 13% recovery on the sixth night. While in Critical Care Unit on the afternoon of September 13, 1996, Shakur died of internal bleeding; doctors attempted to revive him but could not impede his hemorrhaging. His mother, Afeni, made the decision to tell the doctors to stop. He was pronounced dead at 4:03 p.m. (PDT) The official cause of death was noted as respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest in connection with multiple gunshot wounds. Shakur's body was cremated. Some of his ashes were later mixed with marijuana and smoked by members of Outlawz.


This man was so controversial and interesting I was drawn to this case out of sheer curiosity. His godfather was a black panther (I was around back then, actually traveling through Newark the day after the riots), his sister did prison time for shooting a state trooper, his stepfather was on the FBIs "Most Wanted" list, so although he started out studying acting, is it any surprise that he became a "social activist" rap singer who made controversial music? I don't have time or date information for it but Shakur had been robbed and shot on a a previous ocassion but whether that had anything to do with his murder is still unclear. I wish I had time information on that event to make a comparison. I apologize for the long lead in on this case but I thought background information might help anyone considering the charts in this case. I am assuming that some of you who read the blog do your own charts. In this case, because of his background, my curiosity was definitely aroused about his birth chart. I do not have the exact time of birth which is a big drag but I can get an overview from it none the less. So the first chart I read was for his birth date and it was totally fascinating!

The first telltale aspect that stands out for me is Mercury exalted in Gemini right behind the Sun, trine to Mars in Aquarius, which is conjoined the Node. This man had a humanitarian mission and a message. Mercury is under the Sun's beams which means he was sure to draw fire for this "thinking" and spoken words and might even be "in danger" as result of his outspokenness. The Sun in Gemini with Mercury and Venus also in Gemini shows a talented "talker", a communicator, a lyricist and writer. He had a talent for getting his message across and, from the position of the Node, this was a part of his destiny. The position of Saturn in Taurus, the sign of the artist, lingering in an out of sign conjunction with Venus shows discipline and determination. The Jupiter in Scorpio opposing Saturn also shows a tendency to "live it up", to "break the rules" and to not follow advice. He often thought he was right and that there was "nothing to worry about". Life was a party in a fashion and he used parties to push his product. Another standout position is the Moon in Pisces opposing Pluto in Virgo. I mean, considering his end this is an interesting aspect. Moon in Pisces gives sensitivity, creativity and artistry but also can create illusions, deceptions and scandal. Opposing Pluto can bring violence in response to the expression of the artist. When I read the death chart, as I have already done, I will show you how this dovetails with that.

Other aspects in the birth chart I want to point out. Neptune in Sagittarius lingers around Jupiter in Scorpio in an out of sign conjunction. This points to his infamous drug and alcohol use. Neptune is also opposed to Venus in Gemini, giving him an "aura", an "image" of sorts that may not have been real. Neptune and Venus give a higher octave of beauty and charisma, bringing people into a circle of adoration and admiration. His fans were legion and they adored him, no doubt. But who he appeared to be was often not who he was. He was a master manipulator and would have made a talented politician or salesman. In a way, he was both. Since I don't have house positions (I won't read a solar from the houses) I can't tell you in what exact area of his life these influences actually played out. I am hoping to find out more about these elements from the shooting chart, which I will read next. I will also read the chart for the actual time of death, which was quite some time after he was shot. He was quite a fighter, with a strong will to live.

Right away notice that Gemini is rising at the time he was shot and that many of his birth planets are in that sign. This puts him "front and center", the object of attention. The big aspect that stands out for me is the chart ruler, Mercury in Libra in conjunction with the Node in the fifth house and widely trine to the natal Venus-Saturn conjunction as well as conjoining the natal Uranus in Libra. This event had everything to do with his music and his work and was not a personal attack. This was about his career in entertainment and the methods he was using to entertain. The presence of the Node in this interesting aspect tells me that all of this was destiny. It was a part of the evolution of his personal message. He was meant to do what he was doing and he was meant to die in the public eye. The seventh house ruler, Jupiter, is in the eighth house in Capricorn. This shows the shooter as being on the mission of killing him. Death was the purpose. They weren't trying to scare him, chase him off, or take him out for a while, but they aimed to kill him outright. That was the idea. Capricorn hints at career and business so it is likely that this was a professional hit. This person kills for a living and, by the way, Jupiter is saying he is very successful at it. Because Jupiter in Capricorn is in fall, this person did not especially enjoy his work nor did he feel that it did anybody any special good, but it was all about money. Cold hearted killing to make a living.

Jupiter is disposed of by Saturn in the eleventh, hinting that the hit was ordered by a friend or associate. The dexter trine from Saturn to Pluto shows that this was an older man who worked with Tupac in the past. The greater grand trine involving Saturn, Pluto and Venus shows creative input and partnerships. Because Saturn is disposed of by Mars in Cancer conjoined the Moon in the second house, this older man may have been a mentor or teacher to Tupac. Did Tupac have songwriting partners? Producers that also wrote music he recorded? Did he have a "partner" in his business? The co ruler of the chart is the Moon, as well, and this placement of the Moon shows two things. One, that Tupac was out "earning money" or "looking for money" on the night he was shot. But then also that he was shot over money. Whether this is the money paid to the hit man or money that someone felt cheated out of I can't be sure. Just that this event had emotional ties to money and issues surrounding finances. The sinister opposition from Moon in Cancer to Neptune in Capricorn shows that the money issue at the core of this event was hidden or carefully kept secret. Someone borrowed money, stole money, owed money, needed money. Something like this. And no one knew about it except perhaps Tupac and his partner, if , indeed, he had one.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

In comparisons between the birth chart and the time of the shooting, I see right away that Pluto is sinister to a conjunction to his natal Neptune, which rules the tenth house in the birth chart. Violence for business reasons is once again indicated. Neptune as ruler of the tenth again demonstrates Tupac's charisma and mastery of illusion. Moon in the tenth in the creative sign of Pisces indicates career success in music and art; an adept at emotional expression that many people can appreciate. At the time of the shooting, the transiting Moon is sinister to a trine with the natal Moon in the tenth from the natal first house. He was at the peak of his popularity. He was at the "top of his form", so to speak, doing his best work. I was not a fan of Tupac Shakur and I don't listen much to rap, although I won't claim to hate it actually. I like more guitars in my music, personally. Tupac, along with Snoop Dog, JZ and Ice T, were and are among the artists who dominate this music. He was very popular, very successful, very gifted. And he was very much loved by fans. His chart shows that he would have been talented in any music he chose to perform; like all musicians, he chose a form and went with it. Success was a part of his destiny, but, then so appears to be his death!

And one last thing I must mention is that transiting Mars is coming to a trine with the natal trine between the Moon and Jupiter. The Moon follows Mars in close conjunction. This is what is called a translation of light and because it occurs between a transiting planet and natal planets, it shows how the event came to pass. Tupac was out partying (Moon conjunct Jupiter), he was promoting himself (Mars trining the Moon), he was probably drinking or otherwise impaired (Mars trining Jupiter) and he was a clear target. These planetary aspects indicate that he is happy and having fun and feeling full of himself. It is exactly this mood, this state of emotional affairs, that put him where he was, in the line of fire. The person who shot him waited out an opportunity and this act of self promotion combined with personal joy created just such an opportunity. I mean, Tupac was literally standing in the sun roof of the Limo shouting down girls and inviting everyone to come see him. This is so typical of musicians when they are promoting their recordings, their concerts, their tours, their image. Motley Crue used to ride around in a Limo with a jacuzzi plugged into the trunk. So as Tupac was shouting his invitation to the world, he also invited his killers to take their best shot.

The last chart I wanted to consider is the chart for the exact time he was pronounced dead. Tupac had survived a previous shooting and did not die right away this time. He could just as easily have lived through this one, too, had it be "meant to be". But he actually lived for another 6 days before succumbing to the reaper. And this chart, for this exact time, is interesting. Notice the grouping of planets in the eighth house. This is a bit telling but not conclusive. The eighth house alone does not designate death. Again, without Tupac's birth time, I can't figure the house positions of key planets and this is a debility. But the forensic chart helps us see some of the indicators. Notice Jupiter in Capricorn in the twelfth house. The twelfh house is the house of passings and endings; Capricorn is known as the sign of the "gates of heaven". Neptune is again prominent, occupying the first house of the forensic chart and indicating again that his death played a large part in his legacy, it helped shape the illusion that became his imprint on history. Pluto in the tenth house seals the deal. He became more famous because of this violent death; violence, in many ways, shaped his public image.

I know the only thing left with this case is who did it? I already saw in the charts that someone who had been a mentor, a partner, a teacher of sorts had something to do with his murder. This is actually a "hardened" person who has lived a complicated life. This, I realize, defines Tupac Shakur and is not unique in this case. But this person is also older than Tupac, a father figure of sorts who did not have a sense of humor and took everything very seriously. Slights and hurt feelings are not easily forgotten or forgiven. He may have a problem with his weight and if he is also black, he is pale for his race. He has a thin face with freckles, moles or acne scars. He is very ambitious and without reservations about how to achieve it. Killing Tupac Shakur benefited his career in some way. These are keys and clues to this person's identity that could be deciphered by people close to the singer. Because this person is a perfectionist and a great organizer, I would look closely at his manager, secretary, valet, music teacher, producer and / or personal assistant, if he had any of these. Look for someone who complained a lot, was miserly and stingy and too guarded. There was a lot of envy here. This person was really self-centered and self-promoting and did not feel that Tupac deserved what he had and was determined to take it from him. He succeeded.

Lizzie Tomlinson

Child in Playground is Openly Abducted; Found Dead Days Later

This excerpt was emailed to me from a reader in Canada. It comes from the Websleuths online forum:

On Saturday May 24th, 1980, polite, shy 6-year-old Lizzie Tomlinson was playing with friends in a parkette known by neighbourhood kids as “Stinky’s Park” on the southeast corner of Shuter and Sumach Sts in the east of Toronto’s downtown region. At approximately 3:30 p.m., a man later described by numerous witnesses as between 25-35 years old, about 5 ft 7, 160-180 lbs, tanned, blue eyed, with long dark brown hair, a beard, possibly left-handed, and wearing a tan tank top, blue jeans, and brown running shoes, lured her away from the park. An intensive search was immediately launched, but it wasn’t until Monday morning that Lizzie’s defiled body was found in a forlorn industrial area, in some bushes near railway tracks at Bayview Ave. (West Don Roadway) and Front St., roughly a kilometre from where she was taken. It is believed she and her killer walked the entire distance together. She had been beaten and strangled, and was partially covered by weeds and two long boards. The pathologist examining her recorded injuries that included multiple scratches and cuts, a broken jaw, a fist-inflicted injury on her neck, and other bruises on her face and thighs. Horrifically, the killer had shoved the stalk of a weed up into her vagina and through her stomach and upper body until it came to rest near her right shoulder. She lived for at least an hour, and possibly for a few hours, after the insertion of the stalk, but was likely unconscious. Since she had been partially buried, police believed the killer had spent quite a bit of time at the scene.

During the investigation that followed, witnesses came forward with a flurry of sightings. Some kids said they had been approached by a man fitting the suspect’s description, and offering ice cream, in the month prior to the abduction. Other witnesses saw Lizzie and her killer walking hand-in-hand east on Shuter St. and south on River St. A man working outside a factory on Bayview Ave., only a few hundred feet from the scene of the murder, saw Lizzie and her killer walking south along a footpath that runs between Bayview Ave. and Don River, but he thought nothing of it at the time and resumed his work. However, another witness, a taxi driver, said he had picked up a man and a little girl fitting the descriptions of Lizzie and her killer at Sumach St. and Wascana Ave., and had driven them to Bayview Ave. and King St., very close to the murder scene. His statement contradicts those of several other people, so he was quite possibly mistaken.

Hapless bearded men were randomly corralled left and right in the days and weeks after the murder, and the general public was whipped into a fury over reinstating capital punishment.

Because he fit the same description, police speculated the perpetrator may have been the same man responsible for the rape of a waitress one year earlier and just three blocks from the park where Lizzie was taken.

On June 5th, 1980, Lizzie’s 26-year-old cousin Gregory Guerin was arrested and charged with her murder. Guerin was cleared and discharged in late December at his preliminary hearing. No one else was ever arrested for the murder of Lizzie Tomlinson.


This is a horrific and heartbreaking case. You can read a lot more about it and the aftermath, as well as what has come to light since, here on the unsolvedcanada forum. This child was actually impaled! And she lived for an hour afterwards. I don't think it gets much more evil than that. It's horrid and ugly and I can't stand the thought that this man is running around, possibly doing this again and again. The most shocking thing, I think, for me, was that so many witnesses gave such a clear, concise and consistent description of the abductor and the search began moments after the child was taken and, yet, still he was not caught! Although I am a strong believer in destiny and karma and that our lives are part of a greater lesson, I have a hard time when life demonstrates over and over again how powerless we are. It does not seem as if we have even the tiniest smidgen of strength in the face of circumstances and that very few of us ever influence the destiny of anyone, including ourselves! This child, for all intents and purposes, should have been saved. But, instead, she was led off easily and made to suffer in this heartbreaking manner. It's mindblowing.

When I tackled this case, I had a few hours window and a lot of information. I am not sure what more I can offer in the search for the killer; they already have a fantastically clear description of this man! But perhaps in reading the chart, we will discover something more about him, something personal and helpful. That is all I can hope for here. In reading the chart, I had a conflict in how to read Lizzie's houses. She was only 6 years old and her parents are the active searchers so I thought perhaps I'd use the fifth house. However, in reality, she was alone and on her own, making her own decisions and was the one who chose to go with this man. She was not instructed to do so by anyone and her parents were not present to either intervene or abet. So I had to weigh things carefully. I ended up reading the charts both ways, looking for some sense. This is what and how I finally did it.

In reading the first chart, which was for the time the man was first seen in her company, I tried reading both the first and fifth houses. The first house proved to be most insightful. Notice in this chart that Libra is rising and Aries is falling. Venus, the first house ruler, is in the ninth house with the planets Mercury and the Sun nearby. This tells me that Lizzie, ruled by Venus, was outside near a wooded area where there was sports equipment or other outdoor gear like swingsets or bbq grills. I don't know much about Stinky's Park but I think it might be equipped for outdoor activities. Anyways, Mercury is nearby but in another sign, showing other children present but not related to her. And the Sun, also nearby in Gemini but not conjoined to Mercury, tells me there was a man on the perimeter of the park but he was not "with" any of the other children. The Sun is disposed of by Mercury, which tells me that his purpose for being there centered around the children. He was attracted to the kids.

Mercury, we must note, is also under the Sun's beams, meaning that these children were in grave danger. The chart co ruler, the Moon, is in the first house, disposed of by Venus, also a chart ruler. Lizzie was "where she wanted to be" thus far; she went there because she wanted to and was not, at any time earlier, coerced or forced. But we must also note that the Moon is square Venus, showing poor judgment and clouded vision. She had the totally wrong impression of events that occurred and probably trusted this man. The Moon is trine the Sun, showing this to be a fact and also showing just how easy it was for him to seduce her. Notice also that Neptune in the second house is opposed to Mercury in the ninth, showing that he was just looking for a child, any child, in fact, and did not target her. He tried his seduction on other kids first.. he just lucky with her. He was offering a lie, an illusion, a promise of candy or other forbidden treats. Something her parents would not let her have but she wanted dearly. He promised her that.

Of all the aspects, the only omen I see is Saturn, the fourth house ruler, lingering in the twelfth. Neptune is square to Saturn, indicating in a sort of vague way, that her death was a part of the seduction. This indicates, although not really strongly, that he was planning to kill a child from the get go. Pluto in the first trine Mercury shows that he felt that killing a child would be easy; he could "get violent" with little resistance. And she was perfect because she was the "smallest" and the "weakest" of the bunch. Venus is sinister to a sextile with Mars, the seventh house ruler, which seems to say that she followed him. He may have seemed to have led her, but I think he had her follow him, to assume greater control over the outcome. Once again, I note that Mars, his ruler, is disposed of by Mercury, the symbol for children. He was there to get a kid, period. No ifs ands or buts about it. A key aspect that much be mentioned is the waning square between the Moon and Venus while these planets are in mutual reception. Although the square is dexter and losing power the mutual reception cannot be ignored. Taken alone, this single aspect will cause things to come to pass. Add to this that both the Moon and Venus begin the afternoon as Lizzie's ruling planets.

The chart for 4 pm shows the Moon moving into the twelfth house. Pluto crosses the Ascendant between 4:30 pm and 5 pm. Mars, the seventh house ruler, remains in the eleventh house showing that this man is still playing a "friend" with Lizzie. Mars is conjoined Jupiter and they are both disposed of by Mercury, which continues to show that this man is very confident around kids. He knows how to make them laugh and to relax and trust him. I think he attacked her between 4:30 and 5 pm, following the Moon and Pluto. Not too long afterwards, the chart ruler, Venus, moves into the eighth with Mercury and the Sun. I think he attacked her and killed her pretty quickly, even though she didn't die for awhile.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

By 6 pm, the chart shows Scorpio rising with Pluto in the twelfth. The seventh house ruler, now Venus, is in the eighth, showing murder in the commission of a sexual act. I realize this is all known fact but I can't resist seeing if the charts can support the facts. Notice also that Mars, the chart co ruler, is in the tenth house, which tells us that this all happened "out in the open". They were not in a home somewhere or tucked away in the backseat of a car. This child was killed by this man out in an open area, perhaps near a highway or a public area. She may very well have been killed where she was found, near those railroad tracks. This may be why the chart ruler from the beginning, Venus, never left the ninth house until after she was attacked. The ninth house is the travel house and rules stuff like railroads.

The charts from 5:30 forward, until after 7 pm, show the seventh house ruler, Venus, in the eighth house. Doesn't this support the theory that he spent quite some time with her, both sexually and also after she was dead or dieing? This whole horror seems to have gone on for quite some time, after starting very shortly after he nabbed her. Sad. But I will chin up and take a shot at gleaning something more about this man, in the hopes that it might help find him. I doubt if it will and I'm sure my detractors will kick my butt for this one, too, but here goes. He is ruled by Mars in Virgo. That is the planet that rules the seventh cusp at the time of her abduction. It defines the man she met and left with. In traditional Astrology this describes someone who is fairly muscular and is in fine physical shape. Health conscious and discriminating. Neat, clean and well trimmed. Of medium height, dark to reddish brown hair and thin lips. Also, someone with a broad, high forehead, high cheekbones and large nostrils. This is a well proportioned, disciplined person who watches his diet and probably exercises. Not a hunter type or an athlete but someone who may lift weights or walk a lot. He might be a teacher, a custodian, a school crossing guard, a gym instructor or a team coach but of sports like football or tennis, Mercury type sports. With his proclivity with children and ability to get along with them so easily, it is likely he works with children in some capacity. This is especially true since the forensic chart is showing his ruler, Mars, as being disposed of by Mercury, the traditional ruler of children.

Now, I want to clarify a few things. When I say the abductor is ruled by Mars in Virgo, I am not claiming this person to be a Sun Sign Virgo or to even have Mars in Virgo in the natal chart. This is merely the symbolic measure given by the chart of that instant. Because the forensic chart captures a moment in time and gives a symbolic portrayal of what occurred, these aspects, placements and other data is merely that: symbolic. So, in that regard, those who are trying to find this man should be looking for one who symbolically represents the energies of the planet Mars, the sign Virgo and the totality of Mars in Virgo.

Case Updates

A Message To My Readers

I want to thank all of my readers for their chart suggestions, they are always welcome and I appreciate it. I want to say, though, that many of them will not make it on this blog and for a lot of reasons. Those cases that do not have firm time lines will have to be passed on; variable or unreliable time lines make for incorrect charts. Also, many of you email me cases with incomplete information such as dates written as 198. I know this is 1980-something, but what? So when you email me a case either send me a link to the originating website or double check your note to be sure that all information is complete. I appreciate the efforts and I do many of them on the blog but I don't want you to be hurt or angry if your case has not been done. Double check your original email to me and if there are missing or variable times or dates, then correct the information and resend it. I promise that if I get an accurate time line and date, I will attempt the charts.

I want to also apologize for not completing some charts I recently promised I would. The Brenda Riley case has gone cold for me, literally and so has the Kristi Cornwell case. I have all the information I need but the charts are not reading well. I just can't get it. I am inviting any other Astrologer who has had luck with these charts to email me their analysis and I will post it here on Forensic Astrology and give you the byline. I promise you. Otherwise, these cases will wait on my own limitations and perhaps in the future, the sky will clear. In the meantime, they remain dark.

Here are some of the cases I have received but do not have enough information to complete. Christine Jessop, Eric Nicoletti, Mohamed Rihani, Noel Heimberg, Patricia Y. Clark, Harry D. Suresh, Peggy Sue Ashley.

Also, does anyone know if the case of Ryan Sainty was solved? Did he drown or are there other clues that he might have lived? The time lines are sketchy and the information is variable. Also, I am having a hard time with the Sharon Marshall case because I have way too much information and the information I have is variable and difficult to pin down. I just need a time and a date when she was last seen.

In the Susan Krause case, I need to know what time the previous evening she was seen in the grocery store. A window of a few hours is fine. Otherwise, as it stands, she could have been killed anytime in a 14 hour window. This is just too wide.

In other cases, I must apologize because the information, again, is just too sketchy. My abilities are limited. I want to thank you for having so much faith in me but I cannot read cases for unknown victims. My heart goes out to the Jane & John Does of the world and I wish I could do these cases but I will have to leave that to the psychics. If I don't have a time when the victim was last seen, I cannot do the case. I cannot build a chart on the time the body was discovered. All I can retrieve from these charts is the future of the police investigation. I cannot work it backwards, because how long would that backtrack be? I mean, did they die two weeks ago or six months ago? It's impossible.

So there it is. I am limited in my abilities to work these charts and I apologize for that. In all other cases that have been emailed to me, they will get done. When I am not slaving away trying to make a dollar in this horrible economy I promise I will be doing charts. I love this blog. It's not going anywhere. Oh, and thanks for reading it.
