'Flight MH370 was bound for Beijing when it vanished in the early hours of Saturday with 239 people on board. Until Tuesday, the last known contact with the flight was thought to be at about 1.20am – 40 minutes after take-off from Kuala Lumpur – after the plane crossed Malaysia's east coast and was flying over the South China Sea towards Vietnam.
But the air force chief, Tan Sri Rodzali Daud, said the plane was detected at 2.40am near Pulau Perak, an island in the Malacca Strait, several hundred kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur.
"After that, the signal from the plane was lost," he told the Berita Harian, a Malay-language newspaper.'
The above is a quote from the UK's
Guardian newspaper. I have - like many of you I'm sure - been looking at the charts.
Around or shortly after 02h40 (although the angularity of planets will shift with the coordinates) the threatening T-square of Uanus-Pluto-Jupiter came onto the transiting angles. At this point whatever the catastrophe was, it surely happened.
Looking at the Departure chart for 00h41 AWST on March 8th 2014 at Kuala Lumpur, the fact that utter mystery surrounds the fate of this aircraft is starkly evident: Neptune is so precisely on the IC that even in the Dwad it is in close conjunction. In the radix, this Neptune/IC is squared by a setting Gemini Moon which rules the 8th, where we find Jupiter, ruler of the chart and the co-ruler with Neptune of that Pisces IC - which can symbolise the end of life. This Jupiter is in Cancer - in the Sea - and the 8th is often death. So the chart could indeed be telling us that the plane vanished by suddenly plummeting into the ocean and sinking without trace.
But why? The Dwad may help here. There are a few precedents for pilot suicide (which would account for the lack of emergency calls.) And the Sun in Pisces is still conjunct Chiron, a planet found prominently placed in the charts of suicides, who are taking one last desperate leap of faith into the unknown, away from whatever has become intolerable in their world. The dwad South Node is also with the radix Sun, another pattern found frequently in lives that are thrown away. Add to this the contact between Uranus and the Sun both between radix and dwad and sidereal and tropical, and this may have been a split-second decision. Dwad Pluto conjoins the setting Moon in Gemini, bringing trauma to the many passengers. In the dwad chart the Moon is with Mars in Leo; whether this implies a fire or describes the passengers or those responsible for the catastrophe I can't be sure. But the dwad Ascendant is also with that Pisces Neptune, and the 11th-house Mars-N.Node-Ceres is joined by a precise Jupiter-MC conjunction in dwad Scorpio. Where Jupiter is so strong we can be looking either at a religious act or a bid for freedom. Scorpio and Pluto are coercive. And we have yet more water.
So it does look as though the plane may be in the sea rather than the Asian jungle. It may have been downed - drowned - in an act of desperation and so not broken up to leave debris.
Tell me what you think. Your own approach will add other perspectives to this mystery.
A year on, in March 2015, the bereaved gathered where they could to remember those whom they had lost. There was still no sign of the vanished plane despite heroic efforts by the world's navies and airforces to trawl and scan the seas West of Australia for any clue to its end.
Here, unusually, is the Solar Return chart for a catastrophe. Neptune rises square Saturn in the Midheaven. These also configure the dwad MC. With the dwad Ascendant are the radix Moon's South Node, Mars and Uranus. All effort will continue to be in vain.
In the dwad, the Sun is surrounded by Ceres, Chiron and Uranus. The pain of bereavement, the strangeness of mourning with no bodies to bury, continues for another year.
In the radix, Mercury is in the 12th - the elements hold their secrets. The exact Sun/Chiron conjunction reiterates the idea that it may - like 2015's ghastly crash in the Alps - be a pilot suicide. Ceres is still near Pluto and he has revealed nothing.
If any meaning, any purpose can be gleaned from this, it is the coming-together of people to find love through death... the Libra Moon is in the Dragon's Head; she rules the 5th and is found in the 8th with the dwad Descendant. This at least may keep a glimmer of hope alive.
