Acting On An Impulse; Casey Anthony — Part Four

On June 16th, 2008, Casey took her parent’s car and her daughter Caylee on a trip to visit relatives.  This was the last day Caylee’s grandparents, George and Cindy, saw the little girl.  We will start to build a story line of dates and likely events that led to a family being torn apart, a frustrating investigation, a lengthy court trial, a string of proven lies, a national media frenzy, a messy and unsatisfactory story ending, and an outcome that was unbelievable to the nation and the legal system.

The charts will be presented below, along with an MP3 audio recording.  But first, for the information needed by those new to cyclic astrology, I will present a brief outline of what Moon-to-Sun and Daily angles charts are, and what the differences are.

The Moon-to-Sun and Moon-opposite-Sun Return charts are typically read through the format of the Return Chart and an Advanced Chart for any/each of the 14 or so days that follow.  The t/Moon represents current changes we are experiencing in our life while the natal Sun represents one’s established self-identity, decision-making processes, directions in life, or vitality.  The Moon to Sun Return marks a two week half-cycle of the Moon’s orbit and interpretively shows how changing life situations can disrupt or seem to block one’s control and logical progress of life.  The Moon opposite Sun Return marks the last half of the Moon’s orbit about the Earth and interpretively defines how life’s changes are managed by the Sun’s awareness and sense of self-interests.  The Moon and Sun house positions define a theme that governs the following cycle of the Return chart’s effective period.

The Advanced chart is any of the 14 or so daily charts following the Return chart.  The “theme” of the Return chart shapes the framework of any daily chart interpretation.  In these charts we note the positions and aspects of the t/Sun, t/Moon, t/PoF, angular planets, any hard aspects (conjunctions, oppositions, squares) between transiting and natal planets, and any doubled-up planets (natal and transiting versions of the same planet located at/near an angle).  The advanced or daily chart therefore shows how we react to changes and seek to manage them.

The Progressed Daily Angles chart is an extension of the precession-corrected Solar Return and it’s “theme” for the following annual period.  The angular planets show how we act or what the nature of the event is.  These charts are all about event definition.  The S/R shows our intentions and the annual challenges and events that we will likely deal with in the following annual period.  The daily charts define both the time of the event and the nature of the event and our approach to dealing with it.

So, we have the Moon-to-Sun Returns that tell us about changes that are presented to us and show how we react to change.  And, we have Progressed Daily Angles charts that define events, their timing and the actions that we are likely to take.  In this series of posts we may take advantage of either or both of these charting methods to explore the events that have transpired.

This double-chart posting should keep my blog visitors busy for a few days.  There is a lot to study here.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think or which questions you would like answered.  Dave
