The statistics are there, the warnings were there, there was even a dramatic demonstration of how dangerous the man was, but for 2nd Lieutenant Holley Wimunc, a nurse at Fayetteville, North Carolina’s Fort Bragg, there was not enough protection from the man that would ultimately murder her.
One in four women experience domestic abuse in their lifetime. Approximately 1,400 women die at the hands of their intimate partner each year in the United States. On July 9, 2008 Holley Wimunc became one of them.
On July 13, 2008, the charred remains of a body was found in an area in close proximity to the Camp LeJeune Marine base was that of missing Fort Bragg soldier Second Lieutenant Holley Wimunc. Lieutenant Wimunc was listed as missing and endangered after she failed to report to work July 10, 2008. A concerned co-worker went to her apartment and smelled smoke coming from it. It was later determined that the smoldering fire was set by means of an accelerant.
Lieutenant Wimunc had filed for a protective order citing a frightening incident on May 17 where her husband physically assaulted her and held a 9mm gun to her head, then threatened to kill himself. However, when she failed to show up at the hearing for the protective order, the order was dismissed.
Why didn’t Holley pursue the protective order? Maybe it was her own essential nature that despite the evidence denied that her husband would ever hurt her. Her planet of aggression was in the peace loving sign of Libra and the planet of her emotions was in the conflict avoiding sign of Pisces. Perhaps she sensed that such an order would only enrage him further. Maybe she knew that 69% of all Protective Orders are violated anyway. Maybe the laissez faire attitude toward domestic violence at her post, Fort Bragg, known by the locals as Fayettenam, contributed to a sense that it was best for her not to make waves for her Marine husband who just completed two tours in Iraq. We will not know. What we do know is that her husband followed the predictable pattern of abusers, deny that they are the problem, lie about their behavior, and fail to take responsibility for their actions.
Holley’s estranged husband, Marine Cpl. John Wimunc was questioned on Thursday, July 10 and Friday, July 11 and denied having anything to do with his wife’s disappearance. He even reportedly allowed police to search his barracks at Camp LeJeune without a search warrant.
With the body identified as Holley, civilian officials arrested John Wimunc on July 14, 2008. This is the third murder of female military personnel in North Carolina in a little more than a half a year.
Astrology can tell you if the person you are involved with is capable of this level of violence. This astrologer undertook a study that included the most violent (serial killers) to men in anger management classes. What emerged was a pattern frequently that occurred in over 50% percent of these charts, an energetic connection running from the Moon to Mars to Uranus.
The moon represents the female principle, the caretaker, and the nurturer. Uranus is the planet of individuality, the impulse to do what sets us apart from others. Mars is known as the planet of violence. When coupled with the planet governing impulses Uranus, and the planet of our emotions, the moon, the result is an impulse driven individual who let their emotions drive their actions. Emotionally, these individuals are developmentally stuck, unable to delay gratification for their desires and expressing rage when their desires are frustrated.
Another finding that may surprise many who have an understanding of astrology is that it doesn’t matter what aspect it is, even the trine or sextile. Any energetic connection between the three planets is an indicator of potentially abusive behavior.
Clearly there are many men out there of which to be wary. An astute astrologer, using the above as a guideline, can help you dodge the bullet, before you get involved. But for Holley Wimunc and many women like her, it is too late. The last remedy is a remedy of law. Unfortunately for Holley, her killer is likely to get more of a break from the legal and military justice system than she had the opportunity to experience.
