A young girl from our forum recently asked for help regarding a dream she had about her Myspace friend. Turns out this friend in her dreams is Sara Aldrete, 20 years into a 68 year prison sentence for her role as Head Priestess in the horrific Matamoros cult murders of the late 1980′s. Sara claims she was brainwashed by cult leader Aldolfo Constanzo and is hoping to gain her freedom. The forum member was convinced by other members to cease her friendship with Sara.
On researching this case, I was surprised to find absolutely nothing on the web about the astrology of Sara Aldrete, Adolfo Constanzo or the occult murders. Cases like this need to be studied, attempting to understand the darkest sides of human nature must surely be atleast as worthy of our attention as astrologers as studying Hollywood air heads.
Fortunately we have an AA rated birthtime for Sara from astro databank. A stellium of Sun, Moon, Uranus and Pluto in the 8th house of sex, death and occult. Sara says she was brainwashed, but her Sun conjunct Pluto by just 20′ shows she has had the desire to be a leader in her own right. As second in command of the cult, she was in charge while Adolfo was running drugs into the US from Mexico. Sun conjunct Pluto is also extreme, like the blood rituals. But Pluto is also about evolution of the soul. It is possible she has transformed from one extreme to the other.
Interesting the fixed star this Sun Pluto conjunction is on does suggest that there are two ways of the energy manifesting. Mizar “is not helpful if conjunct with ‘bad’ planets. It is not wrong to assume that, besides these handicaps, artistic emanations can also be attributed to Mizar”. Sarah is an artist. Mizar also “Presages the death of a loved one.” Sara was arrested just after Adolfo was killed on 06 May 1989. The New Moon the day before trined her Sun, transiting Pluto sextiled it, Saturn and Neptune in conjunction squared it.
Sara has two Yod configurations in her chart. One has Venus as the apex, but the one I am really interested is the one to Black Moon Lilith in the 11th house of groups. “Witchy” Lilith sounds nice enough but here we see the truly terrifying witch, black magic, child murders, dismembering, body parts in the big black pot.
Lilith is conjunct the Galactic Center by just 03′. According to Paul O. Hewit, the Galactic Center “is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration.” This poweful Lilith energy is further boosted by the Mars Jupiter sexile, and aspect of success and strength. Unfortunately the fixed stars on Mars and Jupiter are not pretty.
Mars is conjunct Procyon, “With Mars: Cruelty, violence, scandal and slander, disgrace and ruin”. The real humdinger is Jupiter on Algol, “misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.” Algol has also been associated with Lilith.
As I mentioned before about the positive side of Sun conjunct Pluto, Algol can also have positive manifestations. As an example, I like to show the chart of a man I call “Mr. Algol”. Algol shows up in the charts of many talented musicians, just about all the Beatles. Mr. Algol aka Eric Burden of The Animals has an incredible stellium on Algol. As yet another side note, he was born as astrologer and Nazi defector Rudolf Hess flew into Scotland. Algol then was 25tau21.
Now back to Sara, there must be more to the astrology in her chart. Many people were born with these aspects and stars. I guess it was the fateful meeting with Adolfo on 30 July 1987, a few days after the New Moon on her DC that had the most to do with it. Aldofo had another High Priestess before Sara, her whereabouts is unknown.
“I don’t think the religion will end with us, because it has a lot of people in it. They have found a temple in Monterrey that isn’t even related to us. It will continue.” Sara Aldrete.
