Ian Brady, Britain’s child murderer and rapist, died on Monday. Michel Gauquelin has his birth data, so we decided to view it The chart has some asteroids, from WinStar Express, has Kepler does not depicts them at all except on a print out; I prefer Solar Fire’s integrated approach, but SF has a lot of problems running on my Win 10 Machine for whatever reason. Perhaps in an upgrade, they will fix that so to get some of the asteroids I create the chart in WinStar for publication.
Mr. Brady has a see-saw temperament type, with most of the planets located in the Southern public part of his chart. It also leans towards the Western or opportunistic side of the map, showing how he took advantage of each situation to his benefit.
See-saws or as Robert Jansky retermed them Hourglasses, are always caught in a balancing act with a shifting emphasis between the two hemispheres in Brady’s chart between a desire to be quietly prideful (PoF at 24.58 Taurus) and an incredible desire for fame and fed into his narcissism of four planetary pairs.
The group of planets, asteroids and Arabian parts at his ascendant is disturbing. Brady has TransPluto right next to his ascendant suggesting that he grew up in a critical and perfectionist environment wherein the personality, the ego and first house, felt picked to pieces. As this aspect is coming from the Twelfth house conjunct Uranus, Brady took this very personally and harbored this criticism within
Across from Vesta in the Sixth House, and so creating a T-Cross with his Sun, 12 Capricorn, and highlighting the Ninth House as its focal expression. While the Ninth is the home of long journeys, from Glasgow to London is about 400 miles, it is also the place that journalism (the Fourth Estate) resides, suggesting that he realized making his name in Glasgow would not make as big a splash as it would in London town fueling his need and desire for notoriety and publicity.
Asteroid Hygeia, not shown, is at 1 Libra, is next to Poseidon and opposite the harsh father of Saturn. This combination of public dis-health (Hygeia) in his working Sixth, coupled with desire, Poseidon, has another outlet, this time in the Third House of Brothers and Sisters at the Arabian Part of Divorce. Could Brady have wanted to create a family for himself, of little virginal girls faithful to him, unlike his mother who serially remarried? It is hard to say, but the chart and his murders are psychotically disturbing. Of course these two T-Crosses create one large Grand Mutable Cross supporting the See-saw configuration.
Also in his Third House, conjunct Divorce are other odd parts like the Part of Deception & Lying, and Sudden Advancement which is opposite his Sun wanting notoriety, so it would seem that to him that this was a way to make a big a splash. London’s Fleet Street Tabloid journalism playing up his feats added to his glee.
As for Myra Hindley his accomplice, his chart does show Juno in the Seventh next to the Arabian part of Cooperation, opposite his Part of Fortune. There can be no doubt that without Myra a lot of this would not have happened, as he needed a willing accomplice who supported his ambition. Whether Miss Hindley was truly a victim of his Svengali methods as the London Times wrote, is difficult to say, we do not have her horoscope on hard, but with his part of marriage exact to his Saturn, there is no doubt, in my mind at least, that this was a significant relationship to Brady.
His progressed chart to his approximate time of death, shows once again everything hitting in his chart in the Tenth House of career fame. It would seem that Brady had more than his fifteen minutes of fame, and twice.
The Charts. The progressed is from Kepler, the Natal from Winstar. Both are owned by Matrix.
