Where are my sunglasses?

On Tuesday afternoon, 4 April 2017, my wife used her sunglasses to drive to a meeting at a local church.  She did not use them on the return trip because the sun had gone down by the end of the meeting.  The next day she went to use her sunglasses again but could not find them.  At 1:07 pm on Wednesday, 5 April 2017, she telephoned me to ask that I cast a horary chart to locate her missing glasses.  Here is the chart:


It was a Mercury day during a Venus hour.  My wife is shown by the Sun which rules the Leo Ascendant. My wife’s co-ruler is the Moon in Leo in the Ascendant of this chart.

The missing sunglasses are also signified by the Sun, which rules the 2nd cusp of movable goods.

The Moon (my wife) applies to trine the Sun (the missing glasses) in about 5 1/2 degrees. I figured that she would find the glasses by the end of the week, and perhaps sooner because the Moon was fast in motion.

These are Regiomontanus houses, and the Sun is within 5 degrees of the 10th house cusp so it is considered a 10th house planet. The angular Sun suggests that the missing item is in her possession and in a place she might normally keep them. The 10th could be her workplace, and she was calling from her office.  I told her that the glasses were with her in her office, probably in her pocketbook and, if not, then in her car.  Because the Sun was applying the the MC from the 9th house, I suggested that the glasses had fallen against something which was concealing them.  The presence of Mercury and Mars in the 10th made me think of her car.  The Sun in Aries made me think of her purse which is a burnt orange color.

She looked in her purse and in her car and did not find the glasses.

The next day (6 April 2017) she came home at 4:30 pm and was looking in her rather large pocketbook for something else when she found the missing sunglasses. They had been there all along, and she simply did not see them amidst the myriad other things she keeps in there.

Interestingly, the Sun on the 9th house side of the MC but having entered within 5 degrees of the cusp of the 10th may reflect the fact that she last saw her sunglasses when she was a church (a 9th house matter).

Addendum (April 7, 2017):  A note on timing.

Timing is often difficult in horary charts. In this case my wife found her glasses at 4:30 pm on 6 April 2017.  At that moment the transiting Moon (4:30 PM in Connecticut, USA) was at 25 Leo 44.  If you look at the original horary chart, she found the glasses at the exact moment that her co-ruler Moon conjoined the 2nd house Regiomontanus cusp of her movable possessions.

    Hah! That happens to me all the time. My pocketbook is a virtual blackhole even when I keep it clean! Good job.

  3. Yes, it’s like a black hole. I don’t know how she can carry so much around with her in the pocketbook.
