(Astrology Explored) Teamster Leader Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance is a true crime story that over the years has morphed into urban myth. Last seen at about 2:45 PM on July 30, 1975, the union leader with reputed mafia ties vanished while supposedly meeting with two Mafia associates. Over the years many mob tipsters have given out a veritable laundry list of possible locations for Hoffa’s body. However the FBI believed the latest tip so reliable that the federal agency spent 2 days digging it up. However, today ended it search of an unkept piece of land in a Detroit suburb.
The Oakland Township property came under scrutiny in January after Tony Zerilli, 85, the son of reputed former Detroit mob boss Joseph Zerilli, told investigators that Hoffa was buried there.
“There was an old house with an old barn on the property,” Zerilli wrote, according to a copy handed out by a man at the site, near where FBI agents are digging today. “As soon as they pulled near the barn, Hoffa was dragged out of the car, and bound and gagged. A shallow hole was already dug in the barn floor. He put up a fight, but he was easily overpowered. …(One of the men) picked up a shovel and cracked Hoffa over the head with it. …They threw him into the hole, and buried him alive. He wasn’t shot, he wasn’t stabbed, nothing like that. A cement slab of some sort was placed on top of the dirt to make certain he was not going to be discovered. And that was it. End of story.”
Zerilli was not part of the crime itself, just claims to know people in the know. He is also selling an online book on this story. But is Zerilli’s story true or just another blind lead in an enduring mystery? What does astrology have to say?
Interestingly enough, the astrology suggests a kernel of truth of Zerilli’s story. Below is the last seen chart for Hoffa. The zodiac sign of Scorpio sits on the ascendant, which portents possible abduction and/or death. The moon changes sign at that very time. Significant things can happen at the change of a zodiac sign, especially of the moon. The moon moves into Taurus a sign ruled by Venus. Venus in this chart is square Neptune showing us that things are not what they seem to be. Keep this in mind, because this very element is key to understanding what happened to Hoffa. Otherwise the moon sits with Chiron and Jupiter in the relationship sign of Libra, also ruled by Venus. These three planets are in opposition to the planet of the unexpected, Uranus. Locked in challenge aspect with these planets in opposition are the Sun, Mercury and Saturn. In forensic astrology, Saturn often represents the body of the victim, so we see here Hoffa meeting with two other men, one in power and his assistant. Note one other thing in this chart. Even though Pluto rules the ascendant, Pluto itself is relatively unaspected except for sextiles to the perpetrators, the Sun and Mercury. It seems they intended to murder Hoffa, but is that what happened.
When looking at a crime, I like to look at the last seen chart and the birth chart overlaid a map of the area. Below is the charts, event chart the inside of the chart, Hoffa’s birth chart. Hoffa’s birth information and last seen information is from Astro.com. We invert the chart to match the compass points of the map. In this map you see points A and B. The B point is the last seen location of Hoffa, while the A point is the Buell Road address where Hoffa was purportedly taken.
The Killing Field?
The inverted 8th house in my experience denotes the place of killing. Notice that the point B location corresponds with Hoffa’s Neptune, and the point A location matches Hoffa’s Jupiter in the inverted 8th house. I think it is significant that Hoffa’s midheaven conjuncts the cusp of the inverted 8th house.
For confirmation let’s take a look at the same kind of map, only with Hoffa’s birth chart in the inside wheel.
The event Neptune also tenants the area of the restaurant; the event moon and Jupiter tenants the inverted 8th house. It is 23.3 miles from point B to point A. Notice the event Jupiter is 24 degrees and the event moon is 0 degrees adding to 24, the number corresponding the distance between the two points. It seems likely to me that Hoffa traveled to this location. That both charts indicates the same place is just too much of a coincidence. Hoffa was at that property.
So why wasn’t Hoffa found here?
In my opinion Zerilli recounted a story he had no reason to doubt, because it was told to him by people he trusted. But those folks may have had reasons to lie. Pluto, who is usually directly involved in some way with a murder is not a major player in any of these charts. Neptune has a much more pronounced influence. Hoffa’s disappearance was crafted under the influence of Neptune and not the planet of murder, Pluto.
My opinion is that Hoffa wasn’t murdered. Either he set it up himself to look like an assassination, brokered a deal with his would-be assassins or made one with the FBI, the result was the same. Jimmy Hoffa disappeared into the night, with his life. Because of this the ultimate fate of Jimmy Hoffa will remain an enduring mystery for many years to come.
