and Saturn fall in the turned fourth house, which rules the home as well as the end of life,
both of which interpretations apply to this event. These are all malefic planets and could
indicate difficulties not only for Leland, but for his family as well. The Moon and Jupiter
do fall in the seventh, promising publicity or helpful relationships, but we now know that
Pluto was conjunct the descendant, too, adding some kind of trauma to the picture.
But this was a lucky day for Evangeline, as she would leave unharmed and get much
publicity as a result of the fire. Transiting Jupiter at about 9- degrees Scorpio closely
trined her natal Uranus, beginning to form a grand trine with natal Jupiter. Transiting
Jupiter did square Adams's Mars as well, but this was a frightening and dangerous
The Tunney-Dempsey Bout
Fortune Magazine in October, 1930 said that Adams had known the outcome of the
Tunney vs. Dempsey heavyweight championship in advance, although, quot;she would not
spoil the bouts, however, by making her deductions public.quot;
Jack Dempsey had held the title since 1919. But on September 23, 1926, he fared less
well, as Tunney won the bout after ten rounds. Trines from transiting Jupiter, Saturn and
Uranus were helpful to Dempsey, but Uranus in his tenth house could indicate an upset or
Tunney had transiting Saturn and Neptune activating his natal Mercury- Jupiter-Saturn-
Uranus T-square at the time of the fight. Yet transiting Uranus made several excellent
aspects, also indicating a turn-about for him. Let's remember that we may not have
accurate birth charts for the fighters, and that Evangeline probably only had their birth
dates. Without complete information, there are many and conflicting indications, and it
would be tough to project the outcome of the fight. Certainly we wouldn't have been able
to see how clear-cut Tunney's victory would actually be.
In contrast, Evangeline's new horary technique is simplicity itself. Turning the boxers'
charts to align them with the contest ascendant of about 4 degrees Gemini, Gene Tunney
would have the Sun rising; Dempsey only had Neptune and Pluto rising. The result is
obvious: the Sun points to success and Neptune to loss. In addition, all of Dempsey's
planets are now placed under the earth, while Tunney has the Sun, Mercury and Venus
rising, with his Moon falling in the seventh house, giving them greater strength.
Adams' birth date is from A Genealogical History of Henry Adams of Braintree, Mass.
(ed. Andrew N. Adams, The Tuttle Co., Rutland VT, 1898), 1900 Census records and her
death certificate. The time is from The Bowl of Heaven (Dodd, Mead & Co., NY, 1926),
citing her father's diary.
Warren F. Leland was born on June 1, 1845 at 4:55 a.m. LMT in Londonderry, VT,
extrapolated from the chart in A Thousand and One Notable Nativities (L.N. Fowler &
Co., London). His obituary in the New York Journal-American, April 5, 1899 gives the

papers. Evangeline says in The Bowl of Heaven that Leland's reading was at about 8:00
p.m. the previous evening.
