ASTROLOGY BETWEEN PAST
Research on 153 violent death and missing cases
by Laura Poggiani
Work presented to the
Astrological Congress of Vico
Equense, Italy, june 2002
In the Natal Chart, as everybody knows, it is possible to find out
many details of one person's life. Details, which are sometimes meaningless, like the
predilection for the shoes rather than gloves, for the racing cars rather than family
ones. Details which could instead be sometimes useful to individualize, in preventive way,
the predispositions in affective, working and physician field, that can even give useful
inputs to improve the one own's life quality, valorizing the merits and minimizing the
However, there are some substantial data that unfortunately Natal Chart is not able to
establish, as for instance one person sex or if this person is still living. These are not
indeed unimportant data, that for a long time have solicited the researchers' curiosity:
how can a Natal Chart, so precise for some aspects, to appear so amazing in catching
details, be instead absolutely unable to gather such a meaningful particular as the
someone's staying alive?
The first one of the two questions sooner listed, concerning one person's sex in
examination, can appear also negligible as, however, the particular ones that are
subsequently drawn, can let us be able to do a good analysis. Contrarily, the second
question brings to an endless series of further questions and relative deductions. In
fact, whether we were able to define if the Chart we are looking at is
concerning a living or not living person, would we also be able to determine, with a
certain precision, one's death date? And above all, the determination, from the Chart, of
the being or not alive in a certain date can be somehow established? These questions can
seem rhetoric as we can easily imagine a thick team of people being ready, with
superstitious gestures, to make sign of denial with the head breathing with relief and
thanking God that this gloomy possibility is not furnished and we can live insofar in the
most complete ignorance of what our future will be neighbour. But take a look to the
matter from another point of view. Every day several people disappear, a lot of of them
never found (it is the case, for instance, of Ylenia Carrisi or even sooner, Emanuela
Orlandi). If we could, from their Chart, to preventively establish, with a certain
reliability, which is their fate, astrology could result particularly useful.
These objectives given, for a long time many astrologers have been
devoted to search a "carpet" fit to establish the moment, as precise as
possible, in which astral conditions would be occurred that give the
"imprinting" to the someone's death but without coming to a result in somehow
precise and stable. With our study, we don't certainly wish to reach such an ambitious
result. Contrarily we have tried to verify, if it exists, simpler, a sort of "astral
biorhythmic" able to furnish precious indications concerning critical periods in the
each one's life. Then will be the single one to establish if, in that period, is equally
positive for him to face binding tests that could involve him at least in a notable
physical decrease exposing him to great risk of accidents, or if let the period passing
through "incriminated" relaxing ones. We have preferred to select the violent
death cases, excluding however the road accidents, and disappearance in order to
isolating those more meaningful aspects concerning such an upsetting event as a radical
pre-existing situation 's change not depending by the one's will.
This study consists of two parts: the first one, tightly connected to the rules of the
Classical astrology (planets in the Signs, in the Houses and Aspects), fit to verify the
truthfulness or less, those theories are related to and the second, including the most
meaningful midpoints, both radix, that transiting as well as related to 16th Harmonic
which symbolically seems to us more functionally proper to decipher this type of
In his "Dictionary of Astrology", H. Gouchon mentions, to the voice
"violent death" the hinge rules that Classical astrology has handed down until
us, commenting them this way:
"VIOLENT DEATH - we first of all reproduce the 11 rules of violent death
quoted by Haatan and coming from D. Cyprianus Leonitius.
These rules, as enunciated, are certainly exaggerate and it is necessary to beware in
taking them letterly. For example, if the Saturn/Mars conjunction in an angle, in an
almost violent Sign, pits enough to provoke a violent end of life, there would be all over
the world hundreds of thousand accidents almost at the same time. These rules only seem to
destine and facilitate the operator's investigations, in order to letting him understand
what are the astral configurations that can become dangerous. They are a sort of
possibility index and not the rules. In every prognostication concerning this problem. It
is always necessary to remind that the violent death's number doesn't surpass 6% for road
accidents that represent around half of this counting.
We can take inspiration to these rules when the dominant will be dissonant and will behave
above all the following combinations: Mars-Saturn, Mars-Uranus, Mars-Sun, probably
Mars-Pluto, Saturn-Uranus, Saturn-Moon, and Mercury-Mars for the car accidents.
In general it won't be necessary found only in the aspects among planets, but it will be
necessary to examine if these dissonances are "individualized" from aspects with
the ASC, the MC or because of the presence of Malefic in the 8th or in the 1st. Well, it
is not necessary to announce a violent death with too much security.
Here is some traditional indications concerning the kind of death when the planet is bad
Saturn: immediate or violent death for collapse, fall, suffocation, shipwreck,
sometimes flaming dead;
Mars: by fire or by iron, hanging, different wounds, of animals, bad operations,
haemorrhages, etc. ;
Jupiter: war, duel, drowning;
Sun: plague, fire, syncopation, public death, by fighting;
Venus: poison, medicines, drunkenness, dissolution, excesses;
Mercury: homicide, poison;
Moon: homicide, drowning, public death;
Uranus: by electricity, car or plane accidents, thunders;
Neptune: castaways, abuse of drugs, poison, mysterious death (if the planet is well
aspected, the death is natural and tied up to an illness which is governed by the planet)
About this, we mention that both John Lennon and Simonetta Cesaroni (Via Poma/Rome murder)
really have Saturn in the 8th House-sudden death -. Particularly, Lennon has got a 7th
with many planets, with Saturn connected to Jupiter (resonance in the world of this event
but also the "face to face comparison" with the assassin who asked him for an
autograph and then point-blank shooting) as well as well as Uranus, not too far from the
mentioned conjunction, but trine to the Moon, an aspect this one, as we will subsequently
see, which appears particularly meaningful in the examined cases. Very interesting the 8th
house position in both Falcone and Borsellino Charts: both in fact have the Sun in this
sector (on their "on air" death: we don't need to insist especially in the case
of Falcone, the explosion was even filmed by the helicopter which was following him as
escort) adding Mercury in the Chart of Borsellino (homicide but also the death in the
coming home journey). Besides both Falcone and Borsellino and Lennon, have the trine
Sun-Neptune. This last planet is placed in 11th in Falcone's, the 4th in Borsellino's and
12th in Lennon's Chart.
Here is the incidence table for every single planet in the signs.
* keep in mind that both Neptune and Pluto are generational
planets therefore they don't appear in some signs while they are mostly preponderant in
those related to births happened in rather close years.
Let's comment on the base of the above rules in
Gouchon book, lock staying the premise that we won't consider those connected to the fixed
stars, rulerships and Master of the Asc.
1) the two Luminaries in violent Signs, different and separate. The violent Signs are:
Aries, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius. We know in effects that Aries and Scorpio are
the domiciles of Mars; Capricorn and Aquarius those of Saturn; the Libra the exaltation of
Saturn and Capricorn the one of Mars;
Observing in the detail the position of the Sun we can notice as the sign
with the maximum frequency is Taurus, followed shortly by Capricorn.
Where the percentage incidence for Taurus is = 13,07%
for Capricorn is = 12,42%
for a expected average of 8,33%
Curios instead the data related to the Moon. In
fact, as you can notice, the greatest frequency is loaded by the "pacific"
Taurus, followed by Cancer, to leave then space to the signs that, on the
contrary, are a confirmation of the
above listed rule: Aries and Capricorn.
Please, then notice the highest planetary concentration is really at charge of Taurus and
only subsequently of Cancer, respectively with 20 and 18 cases, for a
percentage of 13,07% and 11,76%.
4) the two bad aspected Luminaries each one by a malefic influence, so that both the
Malefic ones and both the Luminaries are found in a violent Sign or in relationship with a
violent fixed star;
For the aspects, we have considered all those Major, both positive and
negative because for a long time it has been noticed as also the positive
aspects can have some extremely negative values, with an equal tolerance
for everybody, of + / - 7°.
We mantain it's not the case to penetrate us in a consideration of
statistic data, being the sample, however, not sufficiently wide. We only
consider some peculiarities interesting in our opinion.
Sun results mostly aspected by Moon (just 66 times), followed by Pluto
(60) and Neptune (56).
Moon, on the contrary, show an extremely interesting data: the most
frequent aspects are those to Saturn and Mars. Quite important is that
Moon and subsequently Pluto result the planets mostly aspected.
Then if we detail some among these surveys, we can notice the following
As you can notice, the highest values belong to the square (22) formed by
Moon to Mars and Saturn, followed by the sestile Sun/Moon (20) and by the
square Moon/Uranus (19). Among the conjunctions, the highest value is given
by Moon and Saturn (10) that, added to the square, with which it shares the
negative interpretation, it underlines the perniciousness of this aspect.
5) the conjunction of Saturn and Mars in an angle, but above all to the MH, in an
almost violent Sign, or that it distresses one or the other Luminare;
6) a malefic planet in the 8th House and the Master of the 8th influenced by a Malefic or
being malefic itself for its nature and situated in a violent Sign;
Mars appears predominant in I House while Saturn in VIII, confirming the
rule n. 6. In absolute, however, the busiest houses by the planets result to
be X (they are all very famous characters) and VIII.
11) Moon in the 8th House, in Signs that have some violent stars
(Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Sagittarius), in hostile aspect with the Sun or also being in presence of a
malefic planet in the 8th House or still in the 8th House Master's presence in a violent
While, as we have seen, it 's confirmed the association Moon/Taurus, a
predominance of Moon, on the contrary, doesn't appear in VIII House. The
nighttime star, is surely more meaningful in the XII and VII Houses, maybe
in virtue of the characteristics of the examined deaths: typically
mysterious, neptunian, just XII like, or to a large extent tied up to public
2nd PART: MIDPOINTS
For the midpoints
analysis, even to the light of
what emerged in the first phase of this research, we have considered the followings
MARS I TRANSIT
And, after having calculated the midpoints among all these positions, we have compared
them with the radix ones with the purpose to find if there were or not any coincident
positions, with at least a tolerance of + / - 1 degree, keeping track of the following
The emerged results, reassumed in the following table, have been indeed
(*) The midpoints among these particularly slow planets
have not been considered
Even here we don't penetrate in considerations typically statistic but we
limit to underline some peculiarities.
As you can notice, it comes once more strengthened the relationship Moon/Uranus.
This midpoint in the radix Chart, in fact, results activated just 76 times
with a % of 49,67% on 153 cases.
Particularly, respected the traditional planets, you can notice the
The midpoint that mostly results activated is Uranus rx/Saturn rx with 20
cases followed by the midpoints Uranus rx/Moon rx and Saturn rx/Mars rx with
18 cases each.
Even understanding instead the asteroids emerges the uranian midpoint
Zeus rx/Moon rx, 80 times, that is also the absolute higher Chart radix
value, followed by Hades rx/Moon rx midpoint activated just 78 times. Please,
then note as, besides, the Moon is mostly involved always in the meaningful
The involvement of Chiron emerges, besides indeed interesting, always
To the light of these results, it emerges in this study, the planetary
sinergy that mostly seems to be active in the missing cases which we have
examined, deriving from the combination of Moon/Uranus, both in the radix
Chart and during the event.
This result, if on one side can appear amazing, as we undoubtedly we could
have been attended a higher "Malefic" planets' incisiveness, as
Mars and Saturn,on the other hand it confirms the extreme dangerousness of
Uranus, that can quietly be considered "the Saturn's octave superior"
as I have already underlined in another previous article of mine. (2)
It's also true that Uranus well describes the missing examined cases'
formalities: sudden and traumatic death, explosive, unexpected for the
formalities they have happened, or disappeared definitivly, sudden that
leaves bewildered and often suggests the most fanciful hypotheses and that
surely have completely and irreversibly upset the considered person's life.
More peculiar the Moon involving, that surely requires a great attention in
the analysis both of the events and the personality. Traditionally our
satellite is associated to the most intimate and emotional one's side but
attributing to this a different importance depending the examined Chart both
male and female. In this study, instead, a different "weight"
doesn't appear on the base of the sex and this, if on a side it surely
underlines the emotional impact on the collectivity concerning the fate of
so famous characters and mostly extremely popular, on the other hand it
gives base for further investigations on the meaning of "
negative", "dark events" and "not alive" in
opposition to the Sun-life, that the star assumes in a lot of cultures.
In conclusion, what emerges, and that to our notice is worth to remember, it
is that such a dramatic event is verifiable in primis in the Natal Chart
and, subsequently, is activated by the Transits to form a kind of
astrological "puzzle", in which the sensitive points seems to play
to a sort a sad harmonic melody.
