A murder case

A private source provided the following birth data of an interesting case. Regrettably, it doesn't have birth times, but even this much information is a rare opportunity to dig into a striking event. This began as domestic violence and ended up with the woman's death.

Perpetrator (male) born March 2, 1991, hour unknown, 51N13, 1W28
Victim (female) February 14, 1989, hour unknown, 51N13, 1W28
Victim's death June 23, 2019, 05:59 AM BST, 51N13, 1W28

The perpetrator is an Aquarius-Virgo - hardly a problem by itself, though surely experiences himself as smarter than everyone around him (presuming it's he) and willing to think and act outside of convention. The Sun-Mercury conjunction square Mars stands out, and perhaps Venus-Uranus. If the birth time is in the central part of the, Moon aspects both Jupiter and Saturn (which are opposed), opposing Saturn exactly a little earlier in the day (a more typical murder aspect) and Jupiter on into the late afternoon.

At the time of the act, transiting Neptune was semi-square his Saturn, transiting Uranus squared his Jupiter, and Saturn had recently moved past his Neptune (though, if I had to guess, I'd guess that this is on his SLR angle).

His prior SLR occurred June 11 when Mars was opposite Saturn and we had the Sun-Mars-Jupiter T-square - again, I'd bet that Mars-Saturn (on his Neptune and, somewhat, his Uranus) was foreground in this chart. In any case, Mars was opposite his Neptune partile in the SLR. His prior SSR had nothing similarly outstanding (without a birth time), though an evening birth time would give an SSR Moon-Venus conjunction on natal Saturn.

The victim also had an Aquarius Sun but with Moon in Taurus instead of Virgo. Sun-Jupiter and Venus-Mars-Pluto are the strong forces in this chart - a person of great passion and love of life.

At the victim's death, there are no transits at all (given that we don't have a birth time).

The victim's final SLR had Mars precisely opposite natal Neptune - 0°00' for a noon birth time - which is the only standout aspect and might have been on the angles for the SLR. The Demi-SLR didn't add anything without a birth time.

The final SSR occurred with a close Mars-Uranus conjunction. If this fell on angles, it would be consistent with a violent attack. The Mars-Uranus squared natal Mercury.

A chart for about 11:20 AM has a lot to offer for this event, but of course it's speculative.

As for synastry, the perp's Mars is almost certainly conjunct the victim's Moon - this is clearly a Moon-Mars relationship, showing the violence but most likely (if circumstances match) a case of unrequited or interrupted passion. The victim's Saturn squares the perp's Venus, another suggestion that ardor was not reciprocated. That Mars to the victim's Moon is really Sun-Mars, so again I think the perp instinctively sought to dominate the victim - was the death an accident stemming from that? Perp's Saturn on victim's Mercury, the former didn't listen to the latter.

Interesting Jim, thanks for this analysis.
