Ian Brady & Myra Hindley

I haven't really worked up a comparison between these two - accomplices on atrocious, vile, heart-braking murders, truly partners in crime - but I wanted to put their birth data here for anyone else to experiment and to add to the collection. The former is well-known from Fagan's & Firebrace's writings, but no time was available for the latter until more recently.

Ian Brady was born January 2, 1938, 12:40 PM, Glasgow, Scotland (AA Data).
Myra Hindley was born July 23, 1942, 2:45 AM, Crumpsal, Lancashire (B Data)

Most obvious is her Sun conjunct his Pluto 0°05'. Her Saturn squares his Mars 0°07' (murder and slaughter, I guess, are activities that would allow two people to interact well with Mars-Saturn). Each Jupiter opposes the others' Sun 2-3°. Their Venuses are widely opposite, square his Saturn (his own Venus-Saturn is wide, but her Venus to his Saturn within 0°27' sharpens the symbolism, draws out the energy I think).

Taking a new look at this (after just working on Hindley's gruesome nativity), I find it's an unusually good example of a Composite. (I consider the Composite a valid relationship chart but also find it disappoints far too often to be as reliable as basic synastry.)

The strongest indication is given in the simplest things: This sadistically murderous couple's Composite with Mars 1°23' from Ascendant! That's the main mark of the chart. (Moon square Neptune is one of the two other really interesting aspects.)

For those who interpret Composites primarily by houses (as the two original works in astrological literature did) will see seven of ten planets in houses 6 vs. 12.

A very strange aspect, though, is Sun opposite Jupiter, with both trine-sextile Moon - all within 1°. I'm not sure what this means except, perhaps, that their activities as a couple were enjoyable to do the two of them as a couple. (In its own sick way, it seems to have been a great relationship.) Most of the rest of the close aspects show really great sex.
