From the Author

astrology profiles of famous murders and suicides
Murders are often followed by suicide in our increasingly violent society. Sometimes a murder is even made to look like a suicide--like Marilyn Monroe's death, for example which I include in my book. A chapter on the differences between male and female suicides is included in TCA, and a real life suicide like Sylvia Plath's is contrasted with the "staged" suicide of a famous actress. Astrology can be used to profile these types of events and can even be used to ascertain the method of suicide--gunshots, suffocation, drowning, or putting one's head in an oven as in Plath's case. In my book I include cases of women killers as well as men, although women more frequently commit murder when they feel that relationships are failing and they are losing their loved ones. There aren't many female serial killers because women don't often kill strangers at random. I think they are more family oriented and when desperate for love, females will even kill their own children as in the Diana Downs case. The chapter on The Last Choice in TCA clearly outlines the male/female differences in both murder and suicide. As a certified, professional astrologer, I'm interested in further research on these subjects. Whether or not this is traditional astrology is up for grabs. Readers you tell me. Your input or feedback will be appreciated and may be the subject of my next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Crime Astrology Famour Murders and Suicides 23 Jun 2011
By frosty - Published on Amazon.com
Fascinating look at what makes criminals (and suicides) tick. Includes Ted Bundy, the deaths of John Lennon & Marilyn Monroe. Reads like a detective story, and includes astrological charts of key players. Lots of documentation and research went into this book. This is not a "who-dunit" but a "why-dunit"! Makes you ponder if you should have your newborn's chart cast for the future.
