natalee holloway declared deadIt’s interesting how astrology continues to work even after a person has left their physical body.  I happened to see that Natalee Holloway has now been officially declared dead, nearly seven years after her disappearance in Aruba in 2005.  Seven years is one Saturn cycle, which naturally also intrigued me to look into this a little further.


Natalee Holloway (born October 21, 1986, Clinton MS, time unknown) disappeared on May 30, 2005.  At the time, transiting Saturn was approaching a square to her Sun which culminated on June 30, 2005.  At the end of December transiting Saturn conjoined her Sun and less than two weeks later Natalee was finally declared dead at yesterday’s hearing.

Saturn presides over endings and the cutting off of things, as well as situations in our lives that challenge and test us.  Important events in our lives often come in seven year cycles, and because Saturn takes 28 – 30 years to make a complete cycle within the birthchart there are generally 6-8 years between Saturn cycles.  I’ve written about the “Seven Year Itch” and the fact that many marriages end at the seven-year point.

For Natalee Holloway, one transit of Saturn to her Sun witnessed her disappearance, and the next transit to her Sun witnessed her final demise.

    Isn’t this more like a quarter of a Saturn cycle?

    Sorry but my Virgo rising and Pluto in Virgo is kicking in early this morning. LOL

    I know that Natalie has Gone Home and I believe that astrology only affects us while we’re here on the earth plane of life. Whatever happened to her has been resolved for her; the karma is and will be of her killer…I wonder about Jordan Vandersloot’s astrological chart, since he just confessed to killing that poor girl from Peru. Blessings to her and to all beings, and thank you, Lynn, for your insights. They are always very helpful for me. Dianne

    Speaking of women named Natalie (different spelling)…the Natalie Wood case was briefly reopened a month or so ago. Natalie Wood’s birth data: July 20, 1938, 11:16 am PST, San Francisco, CA. Date of death, November 29, 1981. Natalie had a Sun, Mars, Pluso conjunction in 27, 28 and 29 degrees respectively in her natal 10th house. At the time she died, transiting Pluto was 25 Libra (squaring all three of those planets in her natal 10th house). Now Saturn is in the later degrees of Libra (and it will be until it goes into Scorpio in October), squaring her natal Sun, Mars and Pluto, as well as conjuncting the day of death Pluto 25 Libra. In view of the fact that her Sun, Mars and Pluto were in her natal 10th house, it was a very publicized story at the time and perhaps Saturn coming around now to conjunct the death chart Pluto (planet of death) sqaring her 10th house trio, maybe we have not yet heard the last of this story. Even if it is not reopened, there are some other things that will be aspecting her chart to possibly keep her in the public attention; transiting Jupiter 0-24 Taurus conjuncting her natal Moon0 Taurus, Uranus 17 Taurus and S. Node 24 Taurus,and transiting Neptune into Pisces in February conjuncting her natal Jupiter 0 Pisces (Neptune and Pisces do rule the seas and secrets). Just a thought when I saw your article on Natalee Holloway. I enjoy your articles.
