The Astrology of the Murder of Two Oklahoma Girls

Taylor Placker, 13, and Skyla Whitaker, 11One year into the investigation of the murder of two Oklahoma teenagers, an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokesperson, Jessica Brown, said “We are one good piece of information away from solving this case.” but “I don’t want folks to think we’ve got this solved.”

On June 8, 2008:

The slayings of two girls — ages 11 and 13 — who were shot along a rural back road . . . baffled investigators and struck fear into townspeople . . .

Taylor Dawn Paschal-Placker, 13, and Skyla Jade Whitaker, 11, were found shot to death in a ditch along a dirt road near Weleetka, less than a mile from Taylor’s home Sunday evening. They had gunshot wounds to the head and chest, according to the State Medical Examiner’s Office.

Authorities have determined that two guns were used in the shootings that have currently no suspects, persons of interest or apparent motive. The area where the bodies were found were near a road by an over pass, an area where locals regularly went to shoot off firearms.

Can astrology shed any light on this crime?

The grandfather and legal guardian of Taylor reports that the two girls left home around 5:00 p.m. and he found their bodies and make the 911 call atTime of 911 Call 5:40 p.m.. The area where Taylor and Skyla were found was about a 10 minute walk from Taylor’s house. Since the grandfather was unsure about the exact time the girls left the house, it is quite possible that they left a few minutes prior. Scorpio came onto the ascendant of the event chart at 4:43 p.m. . Between 4:43 to 5:40 p.m. the chart changes little. Scorpio is on the ascendant. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury sit in a tight stellium in the eighth house of death, with a challenge aspect from Uranus. Saturn, the Moon, the South Node of the Moon and Mars sit in the tenth house of public events and the Moon and Mars is opposite Neptune, the planet of confusion. Pluto, the planet of death and transformation make a trine to Saturn and the Moon and Jupiter is inconjunct the Sun and Venus in the eight house.

Scorpio’s traditional ruler (and its ruler in horary) is Mars, associated in horary with firearms. Mars is placed near the midheaven, in the house of public events in the sign of attention loving and attention getting Leo. This Mars makes a friendly energetic connection (sextile) the Sun, Venus, Mercury stellium in the eighth, which in turn makes a challenge aspect (square) to the planet of the unexpected Uranus.

It looks like what happened is this. The two girls (Venus in Gemini) met the two boys (Mercury in Gemini). Since the Venus is sextile the Mars, the girls took the opportunity to meet these boys, without telling the supervising adults the real reason for the walk. The boys were carrying guns, and displayed them, probably trying to impress them, but accidentally (Uranus square the stellium) one of the guns went off, hitting one girl and frightening the other. In the fear and confusion of the event, the boys overreacted, with both girls suffering death through multiple gun shots wounds.

This astrologer can only imagine that the Sun in Gemini, sitting next to Venus and Mercury represents the two law enforcement agencies involved, the Sheriffs Office and Oklahoma’s Bureau of Investigation, because it is too horrible to contemplate that two adult men were involved as well. In any event, the Sun inconjunct Jupiter (law and justice) portrays the difficulty in investigating these crimes. It is quite possible that law enforcement have already interviewed the boys involved, but discounted them as suspects.

This investigation will continue for some time, with no quick resolution. In early August (2008) Law Enforcement will turn their attention to these two boys, but it is unlikely that they will be able to make the case. The guns are hidden in the homes of the boys, possibly in their storm cellars. Without probable cause for search warrants it seems unlikely that law enforcement will be able to turn the course and make an arrest.

This is not a murder by stranger, dope heads or an unsavory element infiltrating rural life as several news articles suggest . If will be up to the people of Weleetka to police their own and come to a resolution of this achingly tragic situation.
