I used the original chart given (Mars-Mercury rising). I put the querent at the Asc, the cousin (the quesited...what is asked after) in the 3rd.
The Asc has entered the 4th degree of Leo; the chart is radical. The tone of the chart suggests to me that this is a critical time. Do not distort the meaning of "critical". Remain calm.
The primary question concerns his life. His condition and whereabouts are secondary.
We find Sun and Venus together in the 12th house of Outcasts. Venus is Under the Sunbeams and applies to the conjunction with Sun. The answer is Yes, he is alive. We took note of Pars fortuna on the cusp of the cousin's house (his Asc). Yup, he's still among the quick.
But he is in a weakened condition (under the sunbeams, plus 12th house) and in unfavorable circumstances (12th of outcasts, institutions, etc).
Up to this point we have looked at the chart as erected [the crisis chart] and answered the primary question and have some insight into his condition and whereabouts as well. For a more detailed look at the cousin, we now turn the chart [the judgment chart]. Sun and Venus are now in the judgment 10th, Moon squaring Venus from 12th.
Venus' square to Moon is not of concern. They are gentle planets, and more importantly are in mutual reception.
the first chart that ryancopper88 posted is not an horary question asked from him but an event chart of the time HIS COUSIN left his house..or WAS last seen.So in this case the cousin=the missing person is not signified by the 3rd but from the 1st and he is sun.The problem is that ryancopper88 doesn't understand horary rules and the difference between an event chart and an horary question.This is why i asked him before to post a "question" either asked from him or the mother or the father of the missing person.You will realize that if you read his comments in the thread saying the time he disappeared...8 am on 8-7-2019 at sao Paulo-Brazil..sun is in his radix 12th hiding from his known enemies...etc ...l7=saturn...Sun is peregrine....wanderer...under the domicile of his fears and self undoing he is about to oppose saturn( pod here is also saturn and sun is applying saturn by opposition..still is an event chart)..moon also exalts saturn, so under his power..while sun exalts his radix 5th or 8th Jupiter...mayby his disappearance is related to money he owes from gambling that he had to give back ..etc ...and he was fearing for his life..just a scenario..also both mars and mercury conjunct in his house while..by antiskion on caput algol..and also sun in a separating aspect by contrantiskion with jupiter in his 5th...moon in about 1 unit finds mercury and mars... sun on canopus, asc on Nebulous Cluster
