The local news keeps repeating the story of Savoia the Tailor who went missing early Thursday morning, 13 February 2014, in New York City. Apparently the fashion designer, who handcrafted retro-’30s suits for Robert DeNiro and Ricky Martin, vanished after partying at a Chelsea nightclub to celebrate the end of Fashion Week in NYC. He was last seen at 4 AM EST. Here is the chart for his last known siting:
William Lilly read such charts using horary principles. The ASC represents the missing person. Here the ASC is ruled by Saturn which lies in Scorpio in the 11th Regiomontanus house. Saturn in Scorpio is without any essential dignity, i.e., peregrine.
The Moon, which co-rules the missing person, closely conjoins the 8th cusp of death — an ominous portent.
The Sun, which rules the 8th of death, has just squared ASC ruler Saturn. I find in event charts that the ruler of the 8th just separating from a recent square to the ruler of the ASC is an unfortunately indicator.
In addition, the retrograde Mercury will conjoin the horary sun on February 17th and then square the horary Saturn on February 19th, thus reactivating the square via translation of light.
Looking at the Arabic Parts, calculated in SolarFire:
- Saturn (ASC-ruler) conjoins Emerson’s Point of Death.
- Saturn (ASC-ruler) conjoins the medieval Part of Death.
- The Sun (8th ruler) opposes the Part of Water Journeys.
An angular Mars on the MC ruler the end-of-the-matter 4th cusp and is almuten of the 3rd cusp of local travel. Mars also disposes ASC-ruler Saturn in Scorpio. Mars is in detriment in Libra.
This chart looks quite ominous. It seems likely that the missing tailor had some kind of travel accident and may have drowned. With the recent cold weather in New York, perhaps he slipped on the ice and fell into one of the city’s rivers. Horary is not infallible, and I hope for the sake of the missing person’s family and friends that this analysis is wrong and that Mr. Savoia will be found safe and sound. There is little in the chart, however, to support a positive outcome.
Addendum: A couple of hours after I posted the above, the NY Post published the following:
“Michele Savoia, 55, was pulled from the icy waters at Pier 59 in Chelsea shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday, police sources said. Cops said they believe that Savoia was drunk and accidentally fell off his boat, which was docked off 12th Avenue around 25th Street.”
The chart for the moment he was last seen was quite accurate.
