Exclamation Magic Transmission fluid?

i have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo that had low tranny fluid so i added some, to my surprise it took 3 qts, well just to be safe i checked it again 2 weeks later and it is now 3 qts low again. But i have no leaks in my driveway? where could the fluid be goiin? my antifreeze looks new still ? any help would be appreciated.

Coolant looks brand new and the overfill is at the fill line hasn't moved. Totally lost on what it could be.
