What kind of monster imprisons three women in his basement for years?  That is what more than a few people would like to know about Cleveland suspect Ariel Castro.  (We note that (a) he is innocent until proven guilty but that (b) the evidence against him is overwhelming.)

Specific birth time and location are not available for him at this time.  (We do not have access to his birth certificate, and specifics are not yet available.)  So, we have created a bi-wheel for his reported date of birth and the date of the rescue.  While the positions of the Moon and the Ascendant for both are in question, the resulting chart is still “interesting.”

Our method of rectification is simple.  But, first, keep in mind that we are operating with little to work with, and this is just a “best guess.”  That said, we looked at the charts and looked for the position of the moon on the day of rescue in relation to Castro’s birth chart.  We are guessing that the rescue happened in daylight hours though we are unsure whether closer to noon or sunset.  (We are using noon.)

We have adjusted Castro’s birth chart so that the Moon is just above the 7th house cusp (relationships and open enemies) on the day of the rescue.  Our other choices would be to put the Moon at the Midheaven (six hours earlier) or the IC (six hours later).

But, with the Moon on the 7th house cusp we note that Mercury, Mars, the Sun, the South Node, Pallas, and Venus are in an 8th house stellium (the 8th being the house of death as well as torture; we would also consider alternative versions that place these planets in a 12th house stellium of imprisonment and misfortune).

We note that transiting Juno (spousal relationships and especially issues involving treachery to spouses and family members) either recently aspected his Moon or is in the process of doing so.

Below is a “synastry grid” (usually used to identify compatibility between two people, but used here to identify relationships between Castro’s birth chart and the date of the rescue:

For now, that is all we have to say.  But, with more data later, we might update this article or write a subsequent article.

We have a Solar Eclipse at hand, visible in the South Pacific from Australia and other nearby locations.  Here is the chart, set for Plano:

Astrology traditionally views eclipses as being highly malefic (bad).  They are agents of change, and major shifts sometimes occur for some people in the days near (before or after) an eclipse.

This one has a precise (less than one degree) conjunction to Pallas.  This speaks loudly to women who are warriors, whether by choice or by forced situation.  The three women in Cleveland who recently escaped from being held captive come to mind.  We wish them well, and we hope they find justice against their oppressors.
