New York Times map of the search area for Flight 370. Notice that the plane “disappeared” east of the Malaysian peninsula, but then it seemed to tack to the west-southwest toward Pulau Perak, where its location was last recorded — a fact that only emerged Tuesday, four days after the plane was lost.
In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I look at the chart for the takeoff of Flight 370, and study the chart to see what might have happened. Prior to that I describe the current astrology and give another look at the Uranus-Pluto square. Our musical guest is Jimmy Be Free.
Chart for the departure of Flight 370, a Boeing 777 aircraft, from Malaysia bound for China. The chart has Sagittarius rising (also called the ascendant). The ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter, is in Cancer, and in the 8th house (death and transformation, as well as shared finances, inheritances, funds from dowry, etc.). The ruler of Cancer is the Moon — which we find exactly on the western horizon (setting). So in a number of ways this chart makes contact with the horizon. The ruler of the ascendant disposes the ruler of the 8th which we find setting.
