Elizabeth Short (July 29, 1924 – January 15, 1944)
Today’s post was prompted by a YouTube video from the Forensic Astrology team of Ellie Adams and Brandy Burrow, yesterday.
This sensational murder is still unsolved after almost 76 years. That doesn’t seem possible, and yet, the person responsible most likely died years ago, so there’s no way that anyone will ever be brought to justice (at least in this life).
This time is a complete guess, but the Moon/Pluto conjunction could represent when she was murdered (age 22). As a result there is a Yod pointing at Neptune, formed from inconjuncts to Uranus and the Ascendant. The other two inconjuncts may be significant, too.
Sun Inconjunct Mars
You have a rather strong will, which may be difficult to control. This is because your way of doing something tends to interfere with what you want to gain by doing it. Your actions in some situations may surprise people by contradicting what they have learned about you as a person. Inside of yourself, you may even begin to feel that you can’t approve of the way you act, or you may feel that you can’t deal comfortably with the results of your actions. In other words, you get yourself into real jams.
Jupiter Inconjunct Pluto
You may have a natural talent for dominating others, but don’t fall in love with this talent and be motivated by it. You can be effective at influencing people only if you use your power to help others and yourself achieve desirable goals together. Even at best you will get a certain amount of resistance from others, because they will feel your energy and be afraid of your motives. Unless you show them that your motives are good and that you can be reasoned with, you will run into opponents who are more powerful than you, who will stop you and make your efforts futile.
Uranus Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect indicates a generation that had mixed feelings about its ideals and how to implement them. They often felt very confused about their ideals, and when they found that their ideals failed because they were badly formulated, this group became disillusioned. States of consciousness beyond the ordinary are very confusing to them, and they prefer not to get involved with such matters.
Neptune Inconjunct Ascendant
This aspect can be a sign that you feel you must give way to others in order to get along with them. This can take two forms, both of which will be difficult to handle while you are young. The less positive form is simply yielding to all outside pressure and always giving in to others desires. This will produce unconscious feelings of resentment that you can’t express, but that makes your relationships with others rather difficult. But the other, more positive, way of dealing with this energy is by giving freely before others try to take it from you. In order to do this, you have to feel good about yourself and confident that you will always have enough for yourself and others.
Other another level completely, you should be very careful of your health because you are unusually sensitive to certain elements in your environment. You may not be able to handle certain foods or drugs — even prescribed drugs should be handled with care — and you should avoid letting your body become weak.
To effectively be living on her own in Hollywood since the age of 18 shows that there must have been a lot of ‘sleeping around’ (as it was euphemistically known, in those day). She was always at risk.
When her body was found @ 10 am on the morning of January 15th, the coroner decided that she had died about 10 hours earlier, so I set the clock at midnight. The Sun/Mercury/Mars conjunction at the Nadir of the chart shows that this definitely was a murder and not just an accident, followed by a series of indignities to her dead body. There seems to be a premeditation on the killer’s part. The inconjunct linking Mercury to Uranus suggests that this event was an ‘exciting’ happening for the killer, meaning that the (presumed) man got sexually stimulated while killing her. To say he was a ‘sick’ bugger is an understatement.
The event’s Sun/Mercury/Mars conjunction now lines up with Ms. Short’s Ascendant, and its Ascendant is inconjunct her natal Uranus. And. finally, the event’s Saturn is (almost) exactly conjunct her natal Sun, while her natal Saturn is conjunct the event’s Ascendant. So, all things considered, she was destined to die like this. Whoever this was, her killer must have been part of a past life with her (her natal Jupiter is conjunct the event’s Venus/South Node conjunction). Do you see what I mean?
Rest in Peace.
