I had made some posts for this subject before I realized that this topic was on the Traditional forum where sidereal posts haven't been allowed. So in the event that the posts may be deleted, I'm copying them here.

I did a quick google check on the most famous frauds and liars.

I quickly came up with this chart which seems to nail so many signatures. And perhaps that is really the point. Finding several testimonies...
https//www.astro.com/astro-databank/Gerhartsreiter,_Christian

My analysis below is obviously based on the tropical zodiac but I will be interested in sidereal takes on this chart too.

7 Mercury on South Node
8 Mercury in applying trine to Mars
(...)
The themes of a debilitated Mercury and Mars are very prominent here. Mars is the night triplicity ruler of his sect light indicating that Mars in fall will be a major player in his later life.
(...)
I am seeing the Mercury-Mars connection in an awful lot of charts. Although not just square and opposition. The conjunction, trine and even the sextile.

If we add Ketu (Moon's south node) to a Mercury-Mars combination we are seeing a suggested signature for fraud and deception. I have just seen a televised biography of Bernie Madoff who operated the largest investor fraud ever committed by a single person, a massive Ponzi scheme. He also carried on secret extra marital affairs.

We do have a timed birth chart for Bernie as well as for Christian Gerhartsrseiter. Another very famous con artist is Frank Abagnale a check forger who masqueraded as at least eight different identities including an airline pilot, physician and lawyer. Franks story was made into an award winning movie, Catch Me If You Can, and starred Leo Di Caprio. We dont have a timed chart for Frank, but it would be interesting if Leo were prominent in his timed chart.

If we study these three birth charts together, certain patterns stand out if we use the overlap of navamsa (9th harmonic) planets, critical to the analysis of charts in India. I dont think we can get a total grasp of the potential for deception without the overlapping navamsa planets. As always, I use the sidereal zodiac with the Krishnamurti ayanamsa.





In Christians chart Mercury is conjunct Ketu and the Sun at the top of the chart (nonagesimal, zenith point) and (as Mark pointed out) trine Mars. Sidereal Taurus rises in this chart, and ascendant lord Venus is with Ketu in the navamsa chart, both conjunct natal Sun and Mercury in the natal 10th sign. Navamsa planets act like conjunctions to natal planets if the orbs are fairly close. So we have this line-up in Christians chart in the 10th sign: Ketu-Venus (asc lord)-Sun-Mercury-Ketu trine Mars (7th and 12th lord).

Then if we take Bernie Madoffs chart, he also has Ketu at the zenith point with Venus and Mars. Mercury comes into the equation as it crosses to this triple conjunction from the navamsa chart. Bernie has a double Mars-Mercury contact as navamsa Mars conjoins natal Mercury-Moon-Sun. Pluto, Rahu and the Sun from the navamsa cross to Neptune in the 2nd house (equal cusps at center of houses). In Bernies chart Mercury is lord of the 11th house of gain, and the 2nd house of financial resources. Bernie has Leo rising in both the tropical and sidereal zodiacs with Regulus on the ascendant. He has earned the title of King of Fraud.

Both Christian and Bernie have a Mars-Moon-Sun conjunction, Christian in the navamsa chart in Sagittarius (8th natal house) and Bernie has navamsa Mars conjunct natal Moon and Sun in Aries in the 9th.

An interesting note about both these chart is that the Sun is strong in the sidereal zodiac, in Aries for Bernie in the 9th house and in the 10th house for Christian. To pull off massive deception and to be trusted and respected by others, one has to project a great deal of confidence and charm, and possess genuine chutzpah. Valens gives wealth to Aries, and the old texts give confidence and authority to Aries and the Sun.



If we turn to Frank Abagnales untimed birth chart, he has a Mercury-Sun-Rahu (north node) conjuction in Aries, and from the navamsa Ketu crosses to this conjunction. Mars doesnt aspect this conjunction, but navamsa Mercury crosses to Franks natal Mars-Saturn-Pluto. After his arrest, Frank went on to work with the government, helping the FBI and banks to track down fraud.

All three of these men were consummate actors, helped along by a dare devil personal self confidence. The Gauquelins isolated Jupiter as the planet of actors. Frank has the natal Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius. Bernie has Jupiter on the descendant squaring Ketu-Venus-Mars at the zenith. Christians navamsa Jupiter crosses to the natal MC.

From the sidereal point of view, rather than emphasizing planets in weak signs, the picture is that planets strongly placed allowed others to trust these men as they projected charm and confidence. In Jyotish Ketu can be the great deceiver, placing a veil of illusion over the truth, much like Neptune is believed to do in western astrology.

Bernie Madoff will go down in history as one of the greatest con artists of all time. He operated his Ponzi scheme for decades. His sidereal sign positions are interesting as they are so positive:

Sun is exalted in natal Aries and in its own sign Leo in the navamsa chart.
Mars is in its own sign of Aries in the navamsa chart.
Venus (10th lord) which is in partile square to the ascendant is in its own sign (Taurus) and triplicity.

So rather than making a moral judgement these positions allowed Bernie Madoff to have a very successful (but fraudulent) life and career for decades. Without Ketu we wouldn't be able to see the possibility of deception and fraud. It's interesting that from the navamsa Ketu conjoins natal Jupiter on the descendant (partnerships and exchanges with others), Jupiter being the planet of truth and morality.

Haldane's chart below illustrates that a Mars-Mercury contact can operate in a constructive healthy way in contrast to the three charts above.

I think it is the ones that have exalted planets rise in station and get visible , good or bad.
BTW many Nobel laureates do have the Mercury -Mars inconjunct - even the Physicists.

For contrast to the three criminal charts above, here is the chart of John Scott Haldane referenced by Pankaj. (Scottish writer, scientist, philosopher and physiologist.)



Again we have an exalted Sun at the top of the chart which receives the trine of Mars in Sagittarius, but also the square of Saturn above the ascendant. Mercury does receive the square of Mars from Sagittarius, but Mars itself receives the partile opposition of Jupiter which no doubt places Mars on the high road.

From the navamsa Mercury stands alone in its own triplicity on the natal 7th cusp. There is no contact of Ketu with either Mercury or Mars in natal or navamsa charts. So the exalted Sun trine Mars can indicate a successful career without the duplicity of Ketu.

For students of Traditional astrology in A History of Horoscopic Astrology (pp. 12-13) James Holden mentions that the early decans were subdivided into thirds of 3 deg 20' which could quite possibly be the origin of the Hindu navamsas. I know I've seen 'the ninths' mentioned in early western texts, but don't have time to check for references. Holden notes that the 3 deg 20' subdivisions were called in Greek leitourgoi 'ministers' and in Latin munifices 'duty-officers.' So the ninths aren't a foreign entry into traditional astrology, although we lack examples of their use.

Jonathan Aitken
A fourth famous person convicted of massive financial fraud is Jonathan Aitken whose chart was discussed a number of years ago on the old AstroDatabank site. Aitken was a respected politician, a member of Parliament who became Chief Secretary to the Treasury. For 15 years Aitken's patron had been Price Mohammed, the son of of the Saudi King Fahd. As a 'fixer' Aitken was at the center of financial intrigue in the halls of wealth and power.

https://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Aitken,_Jonathan

It's exciting to see that patterns in Aitken's birth chart conform exactly to the three fraud charts discussed above. Also with a fourth chart to compare, several other similarities are apparent which will be pointed out in another post. Aitken's sidereal Krishnamurti chart is below with the navamsa planets around the outside of the natal chart.



As in the other three charts, Aitkin's chart has a prominent Sun, this time in Leo on the ascendant. The Sun is contained between Rahu and Mars, both in Leo. Aitkin has been described as clever, ruthless, formidable and charming. Again Mercury is conjunct Ketu, Mercury (with Neptune) crossing to Aquarius to natal Ketu in the 7th house (equal cusp at center of house).

Falling on the natal angles, Mercury in the navamsa receives the close square from Mars (on the natal nadir). Western astrologers will be pleased to see Neptune with Mercury as well. In this case Mercury-Neptune conjoin Aiken's navamsa ascendant (which falls in the natal 2nd house of financial resources).

As in the other three charts, Jupiter is prominent as well, as navamsa Jupiter falls in the degree of the natal M.C., and conjoins the Moon. So in four charts (so far) the similar patterns are:

Mercury-Ketu-Mars association
Powerful angular Sun
Prominent Jupiter
Additional patterns to be discussed in another post

As I mentioned earlier we wouldn't be seeing similar patters without the overlap of navamsa planets to the natal charts. So India is correct that a birth chart can't be adequately interpreted without the navamsa chart, although India places emphasis on the chart itself. Only recently are we seeing the natal/navamsa planetary overlapping technique in Indian texts such as C. S. Patel's books. However the technique has been hidden way in the more obscure Indian texts as Patel points out.

Additional Patterns in the Fraud/Deception Charts

Jupiter, planet of morality, truth and law:
Of the eight zodiacal sign positions (4 natal, 4 navamsa--D9 for division 9) only one Jupiter is in dignity in its own sign. Frank Abagnale's natal Jupiter is in Sagittarius with the Moon. After his career of assumed identities and fraudulent checks he turned to helping the government and banks track down fraud. He was still working in that capacity as of 2016.

Jupiter's sign positions:
Madoff: natal Aquarius; D9 Scorpio
Gerhart: natal Capricorn (fall), D9 Capricorn; Saturn conjunct Jupiter
Aitken: natal Gemini; D9 Taurus; D9 Jupiter conjunct natal Saturn
Abagnale: natal Sagittarius; D9 Taurus

Sun-Moon Contact in Fire Signs:
Madoff: Aries Sun-Moon conjunction
Gerhart: D9 Sun-Moon conjunct in Sagittarius
Aitken: Leo Sun trine Aries Moon
Abagnale: Aries Sun trine Sag Moon

These contacts are 100 percent in the Aries Triplicity. In 3 cases the Sun is exalted or in its own domicile of Leo.

Mars joins the Sun in three charts:
Madoff: D9 Mars conjunct natal Sun-Moon (Aries)
Gerhart: D9 Mars-Moon-Sun conjunction (Sagittarius)
Aitkin: Sun-Asc-Mars conjunction (Leo)

Sun conjoins Rahu in three charts:
Madoff: D9 Rahu-Sun in Leo
Aitken: Rahu-Sun-Asc in Leo
Abagnale: Rahu-Sun in Aries

In Lunar Nodes Celeste Teal states that Rahu intensifies any planet it conjoins. In several literary sources Rahu is associated with material prosperity and worldly influence as well as a fair amount of luck. (U.S. president Donald Trump has a Sun-Rahu conjunction.) The negative side of Rahu's influence on the Sun is arrogance and egotism, but with the ability to break out of societal molds. Rahu-Sun also gives natural entrepreneur abilities.

Michael Laughrin (Michael@jyotish.ws) says that in 'low thinkers' Rahu is the criminal and con artist, the fast-talking trickster.

In summary, the influence of Mercury with Mars along with the Moon's nodes, Rahu and Ketu, natural ability and a potent solar influence has helped these man become criminal masterminds in the financial area. It is significant that in the three timed charts we have, Mercury is the (sidereal) lord of the second house of financial resources.

Searchng AstroDatabank, I found five more cases of major fraud, some with assumed identities similar to Frank Abagnale. All five charts are rated A or AA for birth times. Then I looked for replication of patterns found in the first four charts posted above. Some of these patterns replicated such as Mercury-Ketu-Mars and other patterns failed such as a powerful angular Sun. Then in conclusion I studied all nine charts together for patterns found in all or the majority of charts. The results will be noted in a separate post after the five additional charts.

As in the four charts discussed above, the sidereal (Krishnamuti) charts is at the center of the bi-wheel and the 9th harmonic (navamsa) planets are placed around the natal wheel. The angles are natal chart angles. The house system is ‘Indian Equal House’ which places equal cusps at the centers of houses. We know that ‘the 9ths’ were mentioned in classical western astrology as early as Firmicus, but so far no clues have been unearthed as to how these 9ths might have been used. Only recently in India are these navamsa planets placed around the natal chart along with the traditional study of the navamsa chart alone.

Ninth harmonic planets conjunct natal planets are read the same way as if they were in the natal chart. This is because the major ‘tones’ of natal signs are repeated in the navamsa or 9th harmonic chart as similar but smaller tones. Traditionally in India 9th harmonic planet signs are considered to carry more weight than natal planet signs as they change every 3 degrees 20 minutes in zodiac signs. Because this orb is small, planets in the same sign in the navamsa chart are considered to be conjoined to each other even if at opposite ends of a sign.

Chart #5: Jim Bakker, American TV traveling evangelist who built up a huge fortune before he was indicted on 24 counts of fraud and conspiracy in 1987. He built his PTL (Praise The Lord) ministry into a $129 million a year business, with company purchased mansions, cars, jewels and trips. He and his wife also sold fraudulent "partnerships" in a theme park.



As an evangelist Bakker was a powerful speaker. This is reflected in the Mars-Jupiter conjunction on the 2nd house cusp of speech, wealth and resources. (Taurus rules the tongue and throat). Mars, 10th lord is in its own trigon with Jupiter in its secondary domicile of Pisces. Pisces is a sign often associated with religion, but is not considered as fortunate for Jupiter as its own trigon which includes Sagittarius, its primary domicile. So the house of status and career is directly linked to the 2nd house for Jim Bakker.

In two different ways Mercury, which was implicated in fraud in the four charts above, is connected with Mars and Ketu (Moon’s south node) in Bakker’s chart. Mercury near the MC is in square (90 degree) aspect to Mars-Jupiter on the 2nd house cusp. Neptune in Virgo happens to oppose this conjunction, so there is a t-cross of Mars-Jupiter and Neptune with Mercury at the peak.

I think we’ll probably find that Neptune can be exchanged with Ketu in fraud charts. However in Bakker’s 9th harmonic chart (outer ring) Mercury in Aries is conjunct Ketu as well as Saturn, and receives the trine from Mars in Leo. It’s significant that Mars is the dispositor of this trio of planets and is placed in the natal 2nd house.

Also with Aquarius as the ascendant, the lord Saturn conjoins Ketu in the natal chart. So there is a double Ketu influence in the chart.

Analyzing the connection in Bakker’s chart between Mercury-Mars-Ketu is an example of why statistical studies will probably never be able to ‘prove’ astrology. Astrologers can visually quickly see the connection, but it would be difficult to describe the same connection in tables of figures.

I’ll discuss four more charts in additional posts:
Avi Ben-Abraham, Israeli modern-day charlatan (millions of scam investment dollars)
Djalma Cavalcante, fraudulent personality and embezzler
Martin Frankel, American stock trader who is said to have operated one of the greatest financial scams in history
Ivar Kreuger, entrepreneur and international financier, a grand international swindler

Chart #6: Martin Frankel (AA rated), "American stock trader who may prove to have successfully operated one of the greatest financial scams in history, funneling as much as $915 million through a series of foreign banks accounts. Some $335 million remains unaccounted for, with Frankel still a missing man at the end of 1999.

“Through the '90s he created a bewildering web of insurance companies, bogus investment funds and phony charitable organizations....” (quoted from ADB)



Frankel’s chart is one of the most interesting of the group of fraud charts because of the magnanimity of his monetary scams. Again there is the involvement of Ketu and Mars with Mercury. In Indian astrology the only direct aspect allowed to the Moon’s nodes is the trine, and Ketu (above the ascendant) in Gemini trines Mercury (ascendant lord) and Saturn in Libra. Mars exalted in Capricorn squares these Libra planets.

As in the original four charts, we are seeing again planets strongly positioned by sign. Mars is exalted in Capricorn. Mercury and Saturn are both in their own trigon in Libra. If we take these sidereal positions as genuine, then the aren’t showing morality as much as the ability to function illegally without detection from others, in other words “success” from the viewpoint of the individual. Navamsa Sun is also well positioned in Leo, its domicile. Natal Jupiter is in Cancer. Krankel’s chart is overflowing with natal planets in benefic signs.

Frankel’s navamsa chart points to some truth that navamsa signs carry equal or greater weight than tropical signs. Perhaps this is only in the psychological sense. Navamsa Mercury is in Pisces and conjoins natal MC. Saturn is in fall in Aries, and Neptune conjoins natal Sun.

In all the fraud charts the second house has to have great importance as it is the house of speech (lies and falsehood) and wealth and abundant resources. After all the charts are posted, it will be interesting to look at the role of the 2nd house in the accumulation of illegal wealth. In Frankel’s chart (rated AA):

The Moon is lord of the second house, and Mercury disposits the Moon.

The Moon itself is at the nadir and positioned between the Moon’s nodes (t-cross) with the partile trine from Mars on the 8th cusp. (Any planet at the apex of the Moon’s nodes is considered to be influenced by them, but this position isn’t viewed as an aspect per se.)

In the navamsa chart Mars conjoins the Moon in Virgo, which makes Mercury their dispositor.

Frankel’s chart is a good example of how planets link together through conjunctions, aspects and dispositors. Again, this is nothing that statistical research would be able to isolate and describe.

Chart #7, Ivar Kreuger (AA rated): Swedish entrepreneur and international financier called the "Swedish Match King," an international swindler on a grand scale. By 1924, he controlled 70% of the world's match production in a time when cigarette, cigar and pipe smoking were at an all time high around the world. A tycoon with enormous wealth, Kreuger hid from the international spotlight, shunning photographers and interviewers...” (Quoted from ADB)



The navamsa chart is especially necessary in Kreuger’s case where the Ketu-Mercury link isn’t obvious in the natal chart. In the navamsa chart Mercury in Leo (on the 8th natal cusp) receives the trine from Ketu in Aries. We know this aspect would be important in Kreuger’s life because Ketu falls at the natal nadir (angular). The only direct link of Mars is suggested by Ketu’s position in Aries.

An astrologer would know that the Moon’s nodes would play an important part in Kreuger’s life as the ascendant lord, and 2nd lord (Saturn) is angular at the nadir and at the apex (2 degree orb) of Rahu and Ketu, the Moon’s nodes.

The natal angular position of navamsa Jupiter (cusp 7) at the apex of the Moon’s nodes is particularly important in Kreuger’s chart. Jupiter is weak by house position according to Jyotish (weak by positional strength) but exalted in navamsa Cancer, allowing Kreuger to monopolize the match market.

Rahu (power and acquisitiveness) is prominent in Kreuger’s chart above the natal ascendant and at the zenith from the navamsa chart. Perhaps Mars as the missing link to Mercury-Ketu is significant as Kreuger didn’t lie so much, but rather acted blatantly as an entrepreneur and master of control and take-over. These traits could be described by the angular Jupiter-Rahu-Ketu configuration from the navamsa chart, and the double Rahu angular positions in the chart.

Mercury (commerce and monetary transactions) is in its fall in natal Pisces, but conjoins Jupiter in its secondary domicile of Pisces. There is no doubt that Jupiter (with Rahu) is the key to Kreuger’s success in accumulating great wealth and gaining control over competitors.

Chart #8: Avi Ben-Abraham (A rated), “Israeli modern-day charlatan who posed as a doctor, scientist, prodigy, and other lofty positions while hob-knobbing with the wealthy and powerful. He announced his (phony) cure for AIDS and made off with millions of investment dollars in a scam.” (quoted from ADB)



The primary connection of Ketu and Mars with Mercury in this chart is via Mercury’s dispositor. Mercury conjoins Saturn in Scorpio, an unfriendly sign for both planets. This conjunction is in the 9th house trine the ascendant.

Mars as dispositor conjoins Rahu (opposite Ketu) and Neptune in the (equal house) 8th. (Not clear in the diagram as the equal house 8th begins at 6 degrees of Libra.) Ketu itself is in the 2nd house in Aries with Mars as dispositor. So Mars shares dispositorship with Mercury and Ketu.


Chart #9: Djalma Cavalcante (A rated), “Brazilian astrologer, a fraud who passed himself off as a Sorbonne Professor and international consultant for the purpose of various embezzlement schemes. He spent a year in prison for bad checks and embezzlement charges...” (quoted from ADB)



In Cavalcante’s chart Mercury is with Venus in the 12th house with the trine from Ketu as the nadir. The only aspect from Mars is the sextile which via degree falls between Mercury and Venus. Mars itself is very powerful, vargottama in Leo near the 2nd house cusp.

This is another pointer to the importance of the 2nd house in fraud charts which I will discuss in another post. In theory the 2nd house must be implicated in all cases of monetary fraud as traditionally it is the house of earned resources and wealth. In Cavalcante’s chart vargottama Mars in the 2nd receives the trine of Rahu at the zenith which itself conjoins navamsa Jupiter. So there is the link of Jupiter-Rahu-Mars 2nd house. Outlaw Rahu is the key to “ill begotten gains.” In this chart as in other fraud charts the emphasis is on the Aries (Jupiter’s) trigon of signs.
