The main reason I suscepted a child was due to the first chart but I do think this chart seems more radical. The 5th could also be emphasizing the younger of the two suspects. I was going back and forth on gender and it was not very clear but there are feminine indicators, especially since Mecury is influenced by the Moon. Now the 6th house rulership of the Sun makes more sense also - servant. I do think it is just one person who did this but Saturn dispositing her could represent the older person influencing her behavior or maybe benefiting from it. I don't think the Sun is the other person, especially based on your description of them. Combustion is very common in charts dealing with criminals in general because they do things in secret yet out in the open and often the truth eventually is known with this signification. There was another money theft chart with the Sun involved that I can see in my mind but can't remember the specific link in Skyscript, and this chart reminded me of it a bit - it was one Deb commented on and I always remembered. The Sun represents truth and it being angular suggests the truth being made out in the open, so I do think Mr. X was correct and their decision was based on an unbiased point of view - that is how their planet is represented by being Jupiter in Libra, approaching from a sign that is beneficial to the money and resources and not really their own self interests. Libra is a sign of balance, justice and unbiased ways of thinking.

If the servant was suspended, has she returned to work there? Hopefully she is not doing it again - that would be pretty stupid. The Moon with Mercury (translating the light of the asc ruler too) is the primary indicator that she is guilty but she is also represented as a thief in every classical way I can think of. The Moon is also applying to an antiscia aspect with Venus - a loss of money that is covert. Venus as the 2nd ruler, I think is prohibited from aspecting Saturn via Jupiter (if I am seeing the ephemeris right) and Saturn is cadent anyway, so there is no other party that seems outright guilty to me. The Moon would be unlikely to describe them since a lunar person, especially in a phlegmatic sign, would more likely be quite fleshy or even obese. I think the Moon is just representing the subject matter in this case.

Hello Tanit

Please accept my apologies for not having been able to respond earlier.I wanted to give a detailed feedback and was not somehow able to collect and jot down all the facts coherently in a proper way. I would try to answer best whatever questions you raise and supply additonal details which may shed more light on what transpired. I only refrain from discussing the exact relationship between the querent and Mr X and the family since this is a delicate matter.

"The reason I suscepted a child was due to the first chart but I do think this chart seems more radical"

The chart which is now removed was actually the second chart cast by the querent. This was cast about a month later and by then the querent's attention had been taken up by a romantic affair. I believe the chart with 5th house stress shows this. But I may be wrong.

There were at least 2 separate incidences when the querent was sure that her money/belongings were gone-
1. When her money disappeared from her wallet
2. When some stuff (I will PM you exactly what) was gone but was recovered soon when she informed MrX and Mr X's wife (lets call her Ms Y) about it. However it was Ms Y's behaviour during the recovery that made the querent suspicious of her. Querent says that when Mr X handed over the missing stuff to her, Ms Y made it a point to come rushing to the spot, leaving all her work aside.At that moment when Mr X returned the missing package, Ms Y 's face was very transparent and something like regret was clearly refected upon her features. She also uttered some words unwittingly which further strenghtened the querent's suspicions.basically these belongings were intentionally left behind by the querent to lighten her luggage when she left their house to go on a short trip to a neighbouring town but when she returned she found this specific package missing. When she informed about this to Ms Y she looked a little afraid or concerned (querent cant decide which one) and assured her that the servants wont be interested in her package and that she will surely find it. The next day was spent by the querent searching for this packet all over the house but without any success. Later towards the evening Mr X was back and recovered the package from a cupboard in which the querent had already searched twice! So naturally this made the querent wonder why she could not find the package herself? Surely she cant look in the same cupboard twice and overlook it? And if it wasnt there then who kept it back? All her suspicion thus went to Ms Y and was made stronger by the weird behavior displayed by Ms Y.

The now removed chart was cast asking only "who stole the money?" Whereas this first chart asked "who stole my belongings and money?"
Perhaps the matter and the question were most pressing while casting the 1st chart hence it reflects the situation more clearly. The second chart is perhaps marred by additional preoccupations of the querent with her love life.

Querent believes Ms Y to be a good person on the whole but having a little weakness of material things.She first started suspecting her after several instances of Ms Y enquiring the querent if she had kept her possessions locked up and safely or not. She used to enquire how much money the querent was carrying in her wallet. Back then the querent was kind of carefree about her stuff , quite sure that everyone was trustworthy. She never really was in a habit of counting the money in her bag and keeping a record. But after 2-3 of such instances she noticed that someone had been stealing from her. Her first suspect was this Ms Y because of her enquiries. It was as if Ms Y wanted to know if the querent was herself aware of how much cash she carries with her and if not then it would be easy to steal.  Ms Y does not otherwise take any personal interest in other aspects of the querent's life and their relation is primarily formal.

Querent's second suspicion was on the servants. Both coming from poor families and the younger one known to use cosmetics and treat herself to savouries in the kitchen when she thought noone was looking. Querent herself had seen her do this several times.

Another thing that went in favour of these servants were Mr X's faith in them. He even assured the querent once that they may take such small household stuff without permission but they would never steal. He even used to leave his wallet in the open and the cupboards unlocked and seemed pretty much confident in his trust.They had been working there for more than a couple of years. This is why the querent found it strange when Mr X later told her that it was indeed the servants who stole the money.

The other people of the house that is , Mr X and the child are as per the querent, were beyond suspicion.

 " There was another money theft chart with the Sun involved that I can see in my mind but can't remember the specific link in Skyscript, and this chart reminded me of it a bit - it was one Deb commented on and I always remembered "

Tanit, this must be that thread you are talking about -- http://tmp.skyscript.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5696&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30

I had read about Sun being associated with truth in another forum where a member made frequent use of arabic parts and their direction of their flow torwards or away from the Sun to know if someone was lying or being honest.

In this thread Deb says " Usually the Sun does not come up as the significator of a thief because the Sun is an 'open' and 'light-filled' planet which is fundamentally attached to the principle of revelation. In this chart the Sun is in detriment and cionjunct Saturn, which might describe this man as basically honest but presently corrupted because of difficult circumstances, but even such a person as this would be unlikely to uphold a false persona over a long period of time ."

So this last line is interesting and I wonder if Sun can have some such signification here in this chart? Like it may signify Ms Y who is otherwise a respected woman, and known to be honest and and truthful, especially in association with her husband Mr X , a very respected man himself. This is just one of the possibilities to which I would like to draw your attention. But in the end if you perceive this as not likely then I would trust your opinion only as I believe an experienced horary astrologer is more trustworthy than the biased opinions of the querent.


" Mr. X was correct and their decision was based on an unbiased point of view - that is how their planet is represented by being Jupiter in Libra, approaching from a sign that is beneficial to the money and resources and not really their own self interests. Libra is a sign of balance, justice and unbiased ways of thinking"

So what you say here will be a great help indeed in solving this entire matter. As the main concern of the querent is her loss of faith in the people whom she trusted. Querent agrees to what you suggest that Mr X must be just and fair but she also believes that there is a possibility of Mr X not hiding the truth for greater good ( like to save the relationship between Ms Y and the querent from getting harmed ).

" If the servant was suspended, has she returned to work there? Hopefully she is not doing it again - that would be pretty stupid."

No this thankfully did not happen but the querent has managed to lose some more things during her visit to their house even after the servants were suspended! Basically after that incident the querent was much more careful about her possessions. Once or twice after this incident she forgot some of her stuff at their home and informed Ms Y about it and asked her to keep it if she found it . But Ms Y only told her that no such stuff was left behind by the querent. And another time she found another of her belonging gone. Ms Y denied seeing it. Querent says she possibly couldnt have left it on the way and there were no servants also present that day .

"The Moon would be unlikely to describe them since a lunar person, especially in a phlegmatic sign, would more likely be quite fleshy or even obese"

Tanit I'm very much curious why you did not consider the Moon herself as the culprit here. I am interested for the physical description of the moon fits well with Ms Y.

Indeed the whole business is tricky. Suspecting Ms Y is only building unhealthy feelings of pent up resentment and unforgiveness while there is a possibility that the querent may be all wrong in her suspicions like you write in your readings.  I will look forward to what you finally conclude after reading these extra details supplied herein this post and whether you still believe it was the servant who was the real culprit.

Than you so very much again for your help. Can't stress enough how much your valuable insight is appreciated.

Hi Tanit, POf and all , I was wondering if we work according to the significators based on the mutual relationships between the querent and Ms Y then she would be signified by the 3rd house ruler Mercury. But as per Tanit 's description this Mercury , whoever they are, is thin and bony. One thing I forgot to mention is that Ms Y is mentally very quick witted , and takes actions in a flash. Her mental processes are very quick and she is a great communicator. Infact there must be some Gemini or Mercury influence in her chart surely. Her ready wit and sharpness is very much mercury like.
She is also not averse to lying when she wants privacy and does it well. So while mercury isn't describing her physically it does describe her mentally.

For those who are reading this thread and may be interested in it this is the brief story - querent goes to stay over at an acquaintance's house and finds her money and stuff missing. Only people in the house are

Man (Mr X), Wife (Ms Y), Child and 2 Servants.

Mr X is ruled out as the culprit. And so is the child in all probablitity considering their integrity and also the clues provided by the kind of stuff stolen that can be of use only to a female. Querent discussed this with Mr X. He thus suspended the servants. But querent found some more belongings missing after that. But it is not sure if these were stolen too or if they were somehow lost by the querent in some other way

[b]Edit: Just to remove any confusion about the 2 charts, i just checked and found that the chart that has been removed is not radical as per the planetary hour agreement also. Where as this current chart agrees to this check.[/b]

It’s a puzzling case, Serenity, thanks for the PM!

If I’m not mistaken there is translation of light – Mars receives the Moon by his domicile, the Moon carries light of Mars to Mercury. Also are there some collections of light as well? But here, I’m not sure – Venus receives Jupiter by domicile but Mercury has no dignity (in day triplicity) -- nevertheless, can Mercury receive Jupiter? Another one; can Saturn collect light of Venus? Between Jupiter and Saturn, yes (I’m looking at Venus, Jupiter and Saturn trio). Could someone help me on these? Thanks!

Serenity, I have a few private details so I will send PM later.

Sorry, I missed the above... So this means there’s no collection of lights (Tanit would have spotted them).

Hi PoF so what do you understand from this collection of light? Do you think it is relevant here?

One more question I had was about Venus in the 11th house of associations / social circle. Quoting from Skyscript horary section by Deb, " Lily called it the house of 'comfort and relief' and used it to represent" places where we gain security and restoration - such as a safe harbour in shipping charts. Historically it is associated with the king's favourites.” This 11th house position of Venus is somewhat not relating well to the servant in my mind but it does fit well to Mr X's house and Ms Y . Here i am equating the word "king" to mean someone very highly esteemed and with a high authority which applies to Mr X, and Ms Y being their associate/counsellor. I hope my assumption does not sound far fetched as it is culturally also relevant in my country. Can Tanit , you or some other kind member explain this? What am I missing.?

I am in a Venus profection and have an awful Venus, and when Venus went sour, life dumped a lot of trouble in my lap and I am not keeping up with anything in here. I haven't had time to look at PMs and probably won't until November. I thought I already mentioned the Moon translating light of Mars to Mercury and that putting more emphasis on Mercury as the thief. The Moon is always co-sig of the matter and Moon here emphasizes losses to the querent and trouble to their psyche/happiness, etc (querent in the 12th too) and it is giving the light of the querent to the thief, where the thief prefects the matter, but someone retrograde, peregrine and combust completes (or ruins, I guess) the question/matter in bad and dysfunctional ways (guilty ways). To me, this combined is the primary answer to the question. Notice too that the thief does not receive the querent - this is similar to the relationship of Mercury and Jupiter where Jupiter does not "like" Mercury. The thief maybe does not care for the querent in some respect, although there is a loose sextile, or does not care if their actions hurt the querent perhaps. To me, when someone approaches from someone's fall, the other party sees them with disappointment (Jupiter towards Mercury here) - they may have once cared for them but something the other party did made that change (fall from grace, etc.), or maybe the other party already saw them in bad ways and has been repeatedly disappointed by them. Detriment to me is a bit different, where the other party can sometimes see them as an enemy, hates them, does not understand them, or just basically does not care for them. Frawley would say the reverse (the sign you approach from indicates feelings) - where you approach from is important too but how the other party views you is also important. Approaching from a sign that someone does not like could mean the querent also just does not behave in a way that she actively wishes to please the thief or have a good relationship with them, for example, so it can work in negative ways for both involved when someone applies from a sign of the other's bad dignity. It usually has some meaning though and I think is probably important in understanding some of motive of the thief. Maybe the thief did it to this person because they just plain old did not like them, or how they perceived they treated them. There is also an unequal reception here, as can be the case in difficult situations between two people, and I imagine the thief probably felt they behaved in ways that were great towards the querent (which they feel was the opposite of what they got in return?) or that their behavior was in some way justified, since they approach from the querent's exaltation.

Collection of light occurs when two planets do not normally aspect and a third planet brings them together by receiving both of their aspects, and in doing so perfecting the matter on their behalf. Jupiter, as I said already, is emphasized in a positive way and receives the light of Venus before Venus aspects Saturn, if the ephemeris I looked at was correct (I didn't test it out like I normally do by fast forwarding the chart). It would make sense, since Jupiter is less degrees by minutes than Saturn also and if it aspected Saturn before Venus, then that would still be prohibition, so in either case it would have to be prohibition. So prohibition, not collection of light, and Mercury is retrograde, it is moving away from Jupiter and towards combustion in the chart, so Jupiter would not collect its light (and collecting the light of such an afflicted planet would be hard to lead to anything positive for that planet) but the strainful square between them with Jupiter not receiving Mercury due to Mecury being in the sign of Jupiter's fall suggests disappointment for Jupiter towards Mercury and Jupiter wanting to incite justice towards them (Jupiter on an angle in Libra in the 7th). Is Jupiter prohibiting Saturn from Venus because it is protecting Saturn? Possibly, as there is mutual reception between them, but I don't see great emphasis on Saturn as the guilty party here, other than ansticia Moon and being dispositor of Mercury, meaning it has influence over its behavior. Maybe Saturn was a bad influence on Mercury but that does not excuse Mercury's behavior, basically. It could also be dispositor just because it is emphasizing their shared work position and entanglement in the situation. Saturn in the day and in the 9th aspecting two benefics, and being received by the greater, is highly mitigated and not what I would call particularly malefic. It also does not make a Ptolemaic aspect to the querent or the Moon. My guess is they may have somehow influenced the situation through their own behavior somehow (such as saying bad things about customers), but that behavior is not likely outright the way that the thief was because Saturn is cadent and, again mitigated, making it a nicer or more honest sort of Saturn. They may have even been the primary reason the thief was caught because they were honest about interactions between them, for example.

Hi Tanit, thank you so much for writing the detailed explanations. Your description of Jupiter and Saturn is very interesting and solved some of my puzzling questions. I’m looking forward to see you again in November.

Take care!

Hi Serene, my initial overall reading (via PM) is still the same. In regards to what Tanit said on Oct 10th about Saturn as highly mitigated and not particularly malefic -- that makes sense and I am now adding it to the existing Saturn profile. I’ve placed Saturn as Mercury’s mental state (at various stages) and am not identifying Saturn as any particular person.

Also I’ve just remembered when doing a missing item horary, 11th house represents a guest bedroom. So in that room the thief found both Venus and P of F.

Greetings dear friends

I am extremely sorry for this delay in posting a reply. I hope it did not otherwise give you an impression that I do not care enough or was ungrateful of your kind generosity and wise counsel. Because the truth is that I am truly very thankful to you both for your amazing astrological insights. I could not reply before because I wished to first discuss the readings in person with my friend (the querent) to confirm certain things Tanit had said and also wanted her to let me know if I could post POF's analysis (which she sent by PM because of privacy concern) here on the forum. But she is out of town for last few days to meet her family during the festive season here in my country and it seems it may take some more days - about a week or so - before I can meet her in person.

Dear Tanit, thank you once again for all your kind clarifications. I hope your work is going well and you are having a great semester. It is quite understandable that you dont have enough time to post replies here because of your work. You already do so much by helping out others and sharing your knowledge so freely. Truly it is amazing to say the least. You have put forth some excellent points in your lastest post which are reflective of your depth of understanding of human mind and ability to counsel a querent who comes to an astrologer seeking not just an answer to their question but on a certain level expecting some wise guidance from them. You explain everything so well and in such details that it is easy even for amateur novices to learn from your answers. I would reply in detail to the points you raise soon after getting feedback from my friend.

Dear Part of Fortune , thank you for your brilliant analysis. And thank you for your discretion in sending it by PM. I will however like to share it here on this forum publically also so everyone can read and benefit from it. Please allow me to only leave out some details for privacy concerns . I will soon post your answer here after discussing with my friend once she is back in town.


Warm regards
S.

I’ve placed Saturn as Mercury’s mental state (at various stages) and am not identifying Saturn as any particular person.

To me, aspects indicate activity/goings on and often do represent encounters with individuals. Mental state is signified more so by the placement of the planet of the person, such as house and sign. If Saturn were only a dispositor without aspect I might agree it could indicate emotional influences only.

For example, the Moon in fall in the 8th and the querent in the 12th signify anguish of mind for the querent over the matter. I personally think the horary would suggest that the querent should remove themselves from the situation completely because it has caused too much emotional disturbance and I don't think that can be amended, regardless of who is at fault (and I do not agree with others on who is at fault via PM, to be honest). The querent is unlikely to view the matter objectively and is very emotionally involved.

The situation here is a bit different and I will explain:

First of all, none of us in this forum know who is the real querent of this chart. All I know is the chart was erected by the Original Poster at the request of the querent.

Secondly, Serene (OP) to my knowledge is not emotionally disturbed about the theft… or I should say not the way you have described. On the contrary, she is just as eager as I am about learning horary. She and the querent really wanted to find out the culprit by means of using horary as a tool. As a result, Serene also worked on her own and we both agreed the same person is the culprit and she (OP) would like to see that I post my analysis now.


Serene wrote:
Dear PoF , your comments about the chart got me thinking that perhaps this chart does not relate as well to the situation as the 1st chart made on this subject by the querent. The two charts asked two slightly different questions . 1st chart question was - "who stole my belongings and the money?" But soon after asking this question the belongings were recovered. So a second chart was made asking "who stole the money?" I have a feeling now that this first chart may be a clearer map of what actually happened . In this chart the querent is also rightly placed in house 12th. Moon in house 8th. House 5th positions of the 2nd chart are not sitting well with the whole situation. I am posting the first chart now and will come back and post my reading of it later. Perhaps I should remove the 2nd chart altogether? Sincere apologies for any confusion.
I will also soon post some background on the forum for all to read.


According to the above quote by Serene, we know that there were two separate incidents in the past. The first incident was when someone stole the querent’s money and belongings. The second incident was discovery of belongings (without money) by Mr. X (husband). There were several people lived in that household but we narrow it down to two suspects: The servant and the wife (Ms. Y).

The original chart (Posted: Mon Sep 24, 2018) was now eradicated. My reading is based on the new chart (Posted: Wed Sep 26, 2018) and that is the chart currently available for viewing. I sent my conclusion via PM to Serene on Tue. 9th of October saying Mercury represents Ms. Y (wife) and she was the culprit. I mentioned a few other things I saw in the chart (my thoughts are derived from Tanit’s replies). Since then I worked on a few more details and added to the original PM for posting. I also subtracted some sections from the original PM for privacy reasons.

Mr. X is represented by Sagittarius/Jupiter (9th) and as Serene pointed out his wife, Ms. Y is represented by 3rd house, which is Gemini/ Mercury (7th from 9th). 3rd and 6th are natural houses of Mercury but here, 6th house shows Leo ascendant so the Sun is representing servant. However, Virgo is intercepted in 6th house. This is a very interesting contradiction because Mercury is traditionally indicated as servant/knave and the Sun is signified as master/king. Here, these two are mutually applying to each other and I think this is why the traditional placement of rulerships is not required: The Sun had given Mercury combustion – the meaning is the Sun (servant) is a red herring or false lead. Querent originally thought of the servant as the thief blocking the real culprit who is Mercury. With additional incidents occurring later, we now come to believe that the wife is Mercury.


Summary of the argument in favor of “Mercury is Wife”:

1. She is radical 3rd house, Gemini at the cusp. That’s 7th from 9th (house of her husband, Mr. X).

2. Leo at the cusp of 6th house (and not Mercury).

3. Description by Lilly’s C.A. page 75, under corporature: “Mercury with the Sun -- person is more genteel”. I think Mercury being a genteel person rather than vulgar (in the old-fashioned sense of the word) indicates Ms. Y rather than the servant.

4. Another book by Lilly called “INTRODUCTION TO ASTROLOGY” page 212: “if the significator is in the 10th, it is a person of respectable circumstances”.

Both planets are in 10th but here, Mercury is retrograde and this could be read as Ms. Y has done theft repeatedly (as OP has mentioned other missing items -- posted: Thu Oct 04, 2018).


The argument in favor of “Mercury is the Servant”:

1. Mercury is a natural ruler of 6th house.

2. Virgo is intercepted in 6th house.



The Moon shows the emotional state of our querent and also it might be possible (?) that detriment Moon who is in via combusta shows various events of action by Ms. Y. (Cancer is at the cusps of 4th and 5th house). Tanit has mentioned “the Moon is also applying to an antiscia aspect with Venus”. It’s interesting to see the Moon conjunct 8th house of other people’s property. Furthermore Venus (19:00 Aquarius) conjunct cusp of 8th (11 Taurus 16’) by Antiscion.

4th house might indicate she is a housewife and 5th is Venus’s Joy which could be reflecting a housewife’s tastes, she likes luxury items… She might even like to go out to cafés, restaurants, shopping and other fun things. Venus and PoF (querent's money and beautiful items) are placed in radix 11th (represents the guestroom in horary). You brought to her house (4th) what she needs, money and beautiful items; the Moon taking light of Mars (querent) giving these to Mercury(Ms. Y).

Serene, you wrote Mr. X might be hiding the real culprit. I too wonder if Mr. X somehow knew about his wife’s conduct . . . earlier I posted that Venus is in its own terms and approaching trine to Jupiter in Libra. That could indicate that the stolen belongings would be recovered. As a matter of fact one of the items had been discovered by Mr. X , Jupiter. Jupiter being in Venus sign in 7th (natural house of thief as well as spouse’s house) might show his concerns and distress over theft of Venus.

Mercury Rx is 12:54 in Capricorn and its Antiscion is 17:06 in Sagittarius (when Mercury is retrograde, its Antiscion goes forward). Venus (19:00) and Saturn (20:29) already have encountered Mercury’s antiscion sometimes back. When Venus perfected its conjunction with Mercury’s antiscion this could be indicating the hidden action of the first incident when both querent’s money and belongings were stolen (here retrograde Mercury had a mind of its own).

However, I wonder if when Saturn joined Mercury’s Antiscion that’s when Saturn’s “influence” over Mercury kicked off. I think it is shown by the very interesting trio of Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. Mercury with Saturn’s influence shows Ms. Y’s action was somewhat mitigated by Jupiter who rules 9th house where Saturn resides … which led to the second incident that the belongings (without money) were recovered by Mr. X.

Hi again dear Tanit , PoF and all

Here is some feedback and some new developments!

After two years of suspension now the old servant is back in Mr X's house! It is strange because this happened after this horary was cast and published.And the last time querent visited their house recently she was offered a different room which is unaccessible to the servant.

After this recent development the querent (my friend) believes that she may now be in a position to somewhat test the servant by keeping some valuables or money in her view / vicinity to see what action she takes and whether she steals these this time around. Although this would not prove 100% that in past too this servant was the culprit but at least it may give some more clues as to what might have transpired in past.

She has been reading the replies here and updated with the PMs as well. Call it a personal bias or whatever but she is hard to convince that the servant was the only one behind these thefts. I think Tanit is right in saying that the querent will find it hard to accept any other point of view than their own. There is no doubt after reading Tanit's detailed analyses of the chary that Mercury indeed is the thief and we all agree on that. But the opinions diverged from there and there are reasons to believe that this mercury can be either the lady of the house or the younger servant. Personally I tend to feel that Mercury is symbolic of the housewife after reading what PoF wrote about how Sun gives Mercury a 'genteel' character. PoF has added some additonal points which seem to connect all the dots in this story. But again im not completely closed to the idea of Mercury being the servant as well.

Tanit is right in saying that the querent was distressed over this matter. She has discussed this at length with me and a bit with one of her relations. I think her placement in 12th can also be indicative of her feeling trapped and unable to come out and talk about this openly. Infact Tanit has helped the querent see the whole situation and her relation to Ms Y in a new light. At times we are too caught up in our own world to realize the bigger picture. Relations between Ms Y and the querent have improved a great deal. Its true as Tanit remarked that the qurent never actively please Ms Y in anyway except for maybe being helpful in a general way when staying over in their house. So yes, may be Ms Y did not feel they did anything wrong at all.

Another point which may be of interest is that Ms Y herself accepts that she takes money from her husband's pockets every now and then without asking him and saves this for herself ( as she is not a career woman and has no means of her own income) . She doesnt see this as something wrong as she feels as a wife it is her right . Sinve the querent is close to their family , it is possible that Ms Y stole from her but did not feel guilty , just like how she feels taking money from her husband's wallet without asking?

Human mind is complex and Tanit is right again probably that because of the complex nature of this situation and the emotional state of the querent it is best to only make judgements about the theif from this chart and leave the interpersonal relations alone for another horary (if needed).

So this is all the feedback I could manage till now. Will keep you guys updated in case of new findings.

Thanks to you both for reading and participating in this thread with your valued insights.

Best wishes
