Around 11 pm on New Year’s Eve an autistic 5-year-old boy wandered away form a party in Allentown, PA. On Saturday, 2 January 2016, his body was found in a canal about a quarter mile from the home from which he had wandered. Most news reports say he was last seen around 11 pm, although one gives the time he was last seen at 10:30 pm. The above is a chart for an 11 pm disappearance.
Virgo rises, making Mercury the ruler of the missing child. The Moon is a general signifier of missing persons. The Ascendant (the missing child) in a nodal degree is often regarded as a fateful sign because eclipses, traditionally malefic omens, occur in the degrees of the Moon’s nodes.
Mars rules the 8th cusp of death. Mercury (the missing child) is closely square to Mars, an ominous sign. The Moon, a signifier of wandering persons, is fairly exactly semi-sextile Mars, another ominous aspect. Finally, Uranus (sudden unexpected events) conjoins the traditional Part of Death near the cusp of the 8th house.
All-in-all, the symbolism of the chart for when the boy was last seen accurately depicts the course of events.
