A fugitive conman and fraudster on the UK’s Most Wanted list has been finally convicted and jailed for five years and eight months at Bristol Crown Court yesterday. Mark Acklom had victims in three countries; put his father £110,000 in debt and stole £200,000 from his brothers. He had a long criminal history and is believed to have posted as an MI6 agent and banker to swindle a widow out of nearly £1 million of her savings during a year-long affair in 2012.
From an earlier July 3 2018 post:
Born 1 June 1973 in London, he started his crime spree early at 16 stealing his father’s American Express card and posing as a stockbroker to commit a £1m fraud that included obtaining a £446,168 mortgage on a house and hiring private jets. The judge described him as “utterly selfish and completely ruthless” and gave him four years in juvenile detention; and his poor parents had to sell their house to pay back his debts. Since then he’s been in prison three times in Spain. He is married with two daughters.
He has five planets in Gemini – Sun, Moon, Saturn, Venus and Mercury, and while it isn’t true of all Geminis, there is a decidedly shifty and slippery streak in some. His Sun is in an expansive trine to Jupiter, an evasive opposition to Neptune and is widely trine Pluto, for a hint of delusions of grandeur. His Saturn, Venus, Mercury are trine an innovative Uranus and in a risk-taking square to Mars in Pisces.
It a predominantly Air sign chart, so emotionally detached with an over-active mind that needs constant stimulation; and little sense of his physical needs so times of rest are crucial – prison must have given him a chance to recharge though I can’t imagine Spanish jails are exactly a spa.
His ‘creative’ 7th Harmonic is strong and entrepreneurial, though it can also point to mental imbalance. His 9H is very marked which is pleasure-seeking and common amongst fraudsters (Madoff, Ponzi etc). His self-defeating, highs-and-lows, wheel of fortune 10H is also heavily aspected. But the most notable is his 12H which is odd since it is supposed to be the victim/healer harmonic, neither of which seem to apply in his case. He sacrificed others to his greed rather than the other way round.
Five years doesn’t sound a long enough sentence and presumably will be out in under three for good behaviour. Though he looks very off balance and uncertain in 2021/22/23 with tr Neptune square his Ssturn, then Venus and Mercury.
