A New Airplane Catastrophe: Updated

A New Airplane Catastrophe: Updated | Mundane Astrology

Updated July 25, 2014 and Original Dateline: July 18, 2014…and just a day after Malaysian Flight 17 exploded over Eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. You all know the story or what’s been told so far.

For the moment, I am only presenting the chart (down below) for the apparent local time (4:21PM) – according to the NY Times Online – when the plane exploded and/or was hit by a BUK surface-to-air missile, designed by Russia and possibly utilized by Russian separatists fighting the Ukrainian government over the last few months. Note: If the time changes, then I will present a corrected chart.

I am also including the chart for the birth of European Civilization – based on the original work by astrologer Barbara Watters several decades ago. This chart is for the moment that Charlemagne was crowned the Holy Roman Emperor by the Pope in Rome at Noon on Christmas Day in the year 800 A.D. I have worked with this birth chart many times before in my research over 42 years in the field of astrology. The celestial bodies work and are still active, and of particular importance has always been the Lunar Nodes (axis of fate and destiny) which are focused at 5+ degrees of Capricorn and Cancer.

The most recent New Moon, on June 27, 2014, occurred at 5+ degrees of Cancer – exactly striking the Lunar South Node of the European Civilization chart. At the time the plane exploded yesterday and the worldwide media zoomed in on every angle of this terrible tragedy, transiting Mercury (a major ruling planet of communication and transportation) reached 5 degrees of Cancer. This, re-ignited the New Moon energy-field as well as the Lunar South Node of the European Civilization chart.

In some of my many features on how World Wars I and II came into being – from the mundane astrological perspectives of national leaders and charts, and major planetary alignments over the last 200+ years – I pointed out that when the Titanic sunk in the North Atlantic on April 14 – 15, 1912, transiting Mars reached this “dreaded” 5 degree Cancer location in the zodiac. The sinking of the supposed unsinkable Titanic symbolized the coming world war because the large number of people who drowned represented the global community about to be thrown into the mass chaos, confusion and slaughter of a horrific humanitarian conflict. Then just 2+ years later, on Sunday June 28, 1914, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungry was assassinated by a 19-year-old Serbian terrorist Gavril Princip. This became a new shot-heard-round-the-world, and by July 31 – August 1, 1914, Europe was at war – and a war that really was never resolved until the end of World War II on May 8, 1945. But when the Archduke was murdered in Sarajevo, Serbia on June 28, 1914, the transiting Sun was again at 5 degrees of Cancer. [Note: The USA, born on July 4, 1776, has its natal Jupiter – ruling America’s birthchart with Sagittarius Rising – at 5+ Cancer. Therefore, the recent New Moon of June 27, 2014 has just triggered our Jupiter – for good or ill, as Jupiter is the planet of “Bigness,” and yet not always benevolence, providence, good fortune, and the power of positive thinking (the higher, more spiritual qualities of this very crucial planet that has much to do with societal norms and values).

The chart for this airplane explosion does reveal Mars and Vesta at 25 Libra -- having just triggered the potent Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse of April 16, 2014, when Pluto, ruler of the Underworld, mysteries and secrets, had made a station in the sky, turning from direct to retrograde. Plus, the Sun was about to square both Mars and Vesta, having just squared Ceres, the largest asteroid. In addition, Venus, Mercury and the Sun were located in the eighth house (traditional ruling death) at the time of destruction of the airplane. The fact that Saturn and Uranus are both about to make stations in the sky – on Sunday July 20 and Monday July 21, respectively, and with these two adversarial planets in almost a precise, off-kilter, 150-degree aspect – is also highly significant. From the realm of parallels and contra-parallels – aspects that can be very powerful across the board – we find that Jupiter contra-parallel Pluto (July 20), the Sun contra-parallel Pluto (July 21) and the Sun parallel Jupiter (July 22) were all very strong at the time of this airplane disaster and that the ramifications – politically and socially – may be felt very much as we reach this weekend and move into the start of next week. [It is significant, too, that the last Full Moon, on July 12, took place at 20+ degrees of Cancer-Capricorn, which is where the entire Heliocentric Orbit of Pluto is focused in our zodiac. This 20+ Cancer-Capricorn are two degrees in our 360-degree zodiac that hold on to and release a tremendous Plutonic force.]

I will have more to say on this whole subject in the days to come, but, in the meantime, utilize the above information and the two charts as a preliminary guide to what’s going on.

Important P.S. One more notable synchronicity is that Chiron is presently at 17+ Pisces and this comet-like celestial body has an approximate 50-year orbit around the Sun. Therefore, two Chiron orbits around the Sun takes 100 years and it is exactly 100 years since the start of World War I – and Chiron in the summer of 1914 was at 17+ Pisces. Chiron rules over wounds that never heal – as well as would-be healers extraordinaire, mentors, and shamans attempting to reveal spiritual truths and goodness to humanity. However, Chiron is also indicative of the twilight zone and a realm of altered-time – between the chronological-material universe and that which is eternal-divine – and it is often in the twilight zone when tragic events happen because people hurt and wound one another without clearing thinking of the consequences of their actions.

Update July 25, 2014: With two more plane disasters -- a crash near Taiwan and another in Mali in the last few days -- a total of over 450 people have died from three horrific air catastrophes. As mentioned in the above article, the Uranus station in fiery Aries happening nearly simultaneously with the Saturn station in intense Scorpio  (July 20 - 21) and with their aspect being an off-kilter type inconjunct of 150-degrees (and within an orb of 9 minutes of arc or less than one-sixth of one degree of the zodiac!) can represent crossed signals regarding pilots, travel zones, earth-based violence, weather anomalies, and so on. Saturn has so much to do with the material realm as well as chronological time while Uranus is the door into the spiritual and higher realms of consciousness and being, and Uranus has much to do with the invention of the airplane, satellites, missile systems, the upper atmosphere, high-technology, computers, surprises, shock waves, and the world wide web and electronic grid.
