Vedic astrology and Flight 370
Release Date: 03/14/2014
The world has been somewhat mesmerized and captivated by the disappearance of a Boeing 777 airplane, somewhere between Malaysia, Vietnam and Beijing China. Flight 370 from Malaysia to Beijing departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on 8 March at 00:41 – local time.
At the time of departure, Scorpio was rising. Scorpio is ruled by Mars, and it is a water sign. It is not surprising that there are a lot of concerns about the plane disappearing over the water. It is also said that Scorpio “lives in holes”, which shows a hidden nature. In general, a scorpion hides out in their hole. We can see a clear parallel here.
Three planets in the 12th house
The Scorpio ascendant places Saturn, Mars and the North node in the 12th house. All three of these are retrograde as well. The 12th house is about things that are lost or hidden. In addition, it shows a lack of awareness, inattention and possible deception. Also, the three planets involved are all natural Malefics, difficult planets that show struggle, intensity, hardship and confusion.
Exalted moon in the seventh house
The moon was in a sign of exultation, in Taurus, at the time of the accident. This is quite auspicious for the souls aboard, regardless of what happened to them. It shows protection from the Divine mother. However, the seventh house is a maraka (Killer) house. Things are born in the first house (ascendant) and they are taken out in the seventh house (descendant).
Jupiter in the eighth house
This placement may show some deception and trickery, as it is the second house ruler in the eighth house. But Jupiter is also the fifth house ruler for Scorpio, a planet of intelligence and creativity. In the eighth house, the house of death and sudden events, it shows a greater wisdom being developed through intense experiences. It also shows grace in dealing with them. Having the fifth house ruler in the eighth house is a blessing at the time of death.
Sun in the fourth house aspected by Jupiter
The Pilot would be related to the sun, the king of the airplane. In this chart, although the sun is in great enemy dignity, it is aspected by Jupiter and in the fourth house. The dignity of the sun is a problem for sure. It shows the pilot may have been under some stress, perhaps even by enemies. But another possibility, and what seems more likely to me, is that Jupiter’s aspect provided grace in a difficult circumstance.
Venus and Mercury in the third house
TheThird house has to do with skills, intelligence, but also self-will and strong opinions. It is also a house of communication, especially technical forms, such as through computers and devices. Both Venus and Mercury rule dusthana houses. Mercury rules the eighth house and Venus rules the 12th house, both houses of loss and intensity. The third house is also distraction, and may show how inspectors on the ground, or members of the crew lost focus.
My Speculation Based on the Astrology
Based on the astrology, I have a feeling there was some sort of equipment/technical malfunction that proved all-encompassing and eventually catastrophic. The planets in the 12th house show a strong possibility of overlooking a mechanical system that later malfunctioned (Saturn/Mars conjunction has to do with equipment and machinery). Perhaps after an all-encompassing vital system malfunctioned, the plane veered off course.
I also see the possibility that the plane may have exploded, or broke apart, miles up in the air. In such a scenario, I would think airplane parts would be spread out for hundreds of miles. Rahu/Mars conjunction gives explosive potential and the 12 house gives the possibility of something disappearing.
It seems rescue efforts are focused on finding an airplane that is “intact”, like it could have crashed near the ground. Inspectors are bewildered at how the plane suddenly stopped communicating. The transponder stopped working, as if it suddenly just disappeared. But what if it disappeared way up in the sky, after a sudden explosion?
This is a grim possibility, but I think a real one. It may be possible that they do not find an intact airplane, but eventually find a black box in the water somewhere. The black box sends out a pulse for (I believe) one month after a crash.
