Jodi Arias Trial and Murder of Travis Alexander
I wanted to start a thread about the murder of Travis Alexander by his former girlfriend Jodi Arias. The murder was especially brutal as she shot him in the face, stabbed him almost 30 times with what appeared to be a very large knife, and then slit his throat from ear to ear so deeply that he was almost decapitated. The murder occurred almost 5 years ago but is just now in Trial. Jodi Arias has told several stories over the years about what exactly happened that day and has now stuck with the story that he was abusive towards her and the killing was in self defense. If you are not up to date on all the details, just Google "Travis Alexander" and/or "Jodi Arias".

My interest in this case began when I heard that she was claiming to be a survivor of domestic violence and that she had killed him in self-defense. As a survivor of child abuse and domestic violence myself, I was interested in what she had to say.

As of today, the Jury is still deliberating of whether or not to give her the death penalty or life in prison (with or without parole - which the Judge will decide if the Jury gives her Life in Prison). The Jury already found her guilty of First Degree Premeditated Murder and found the Murder especially cruel in nature. Transiting Venus is almost exactly conjunct her Natal Venus as I write this, so perhaps that is working to her favor (for today).

I've just heard on the news right this moment that the Jury is unable to come to a unanimous decision. The Judge has sent them back into deliberation, so because Venus is such a short lived transit, perhaps this is just a short pause of "luck" for her.

As Astrologers, I think we are interested in these extreme cases as they help us to understand human nature, and what we can find Astrologically to explain why a person would commit such a horrible act on another human being. It's not an excuse! Every person has free will and chooses their own path! But to understand the signature patterns in the Natal chart of persons who commit violent acts can help us to identify them in order to recognize when intervention is needed.

Many Astrologers are also Psychologists. In fact, most of our most esteemed Astrologers today also have degrees in Psychology. What use is Astrology if it's not used to help improve the human condition and/or the quality of a person's life?

During the trial a Psychologist diagnosed Jodi Arias with Border-Line Personality disorder. I am very familiar with this disorder as it runs in my own family of origin. I have dealt with people very much like Jodi Arias my entire life (I am 52 years old) and so I have first hand experience with this mental illness. Another point that has tugged at my heart strings throughout this trial: Travis Alexander looks very much like my oldest son.

I do believe that when a human drama or tragedy is played out on the world stage, that there is a purpose for it. The Universe is trying to teach us as a collective something very important about the human condition. I would like to hear what other's have to say about the Astrological signatures in this case.

Re: Jodi Arias Trial and Murder of Travis Alexander
Looking at Jodi's chart, a few things stand out for me:
Moon/Venus/Ceres conjunction in Gemini over the 2nd house cusp. Moon is in the 1st house and on the 2nd house cusp - Venus and Ceres in the 2nd house. Noel Tyl call's the 1st house Moon the "Do it their own way" Moon, taking on Aries type patterns. Interestingly, my border-line sister also has a 1st house Moon in Air (Aquarius).
This Moon/Venus/Ceres conjunction is in a mutable T-Square, opposing a retrograde Neptune in Sagittarius sitting in the 8th house, and all squaring Saturn in Virgo in the 5th house of lovers.

I see the 3 major feminine Archetypes (Moon/Venus/Ceres) in fickle Gemini opposing a retro Neptune in optimistic Sag in the 8th house of sex as part of her charisma over men. She exudes an almost etheric but changeling quality about her. The release point of the T-square energy is Saturn in critical Virgo sitting in her 5th house of lovers. One gets the impression that she enjoys the hunt more than the capture. Once she captures a lover, she finds things wrong with him (Virgo), and perhaps blames him (Saturn) for anything that goes wrong in the relationship.

Now let's look at the Sun and Mercury in security needing and nurturing Cancer in the 3rd house of communication, squaring Pluto in the relationship sign of Libra sitting in the 6th house of work, health and service. From what we know about her past romantic relationships, most seem to be with men whom she worked for or with. In fact, she met Travis Alexander at a seminar for the company both were working for at the time.

Cancering women have the ability to appear ultra feminine and submissive, while being passive-aggressive in their romantic relationships. Remember Cancer is a Cardinal sign and the sign of the Mother Goddess. The Mother Goddess can be warm, loving and nurturing but she also can wear the face of the destroyer if she feels threatened in some manner, or betrayed. In fact anytime we see the Moon, the sign Cancer or the 4th house coupled with Pluto, Scorpio or the 8th house we see the Archetype of the "devouring Mother". With her Sun/Mercury both squaring Pluto and Black Moon Lilith (plus the Vertex of "fate" by the way) we see a woman who knows how to manipulate and stay in control. We see a woman who is sweet, kind, loving, submissive and nurturing as long as she can stay in control of the relationship and everything goes her way (1st house Moon).

There is more to look at, especially her Virgo Mars in the critical 29th degree which was being squared by transiting Pluto all during her relationship with Travis Alexander and was making it's last square pass when the murder occurred. Her Mars is just barely over the 6th house cusp and if her time of birth is off even 5 minutes, her Mars could be placed in the 5th house. It's almost like she was a tinder box of explosives waiting for the right chemistry to come along and blow everything up.

The Nodes are all lined up and significant in her and Travis' charts which leads one to suspect some type of karma here. Chiron and Black Moon Lilith also stands out.
