Nine aboard, all died. The plane was a U.S. National Guard cargo plane from Puerto Rico.

A tweet from the 165th Airlift Wing gives 11:30 AM as the time, but I'm not sure of the time zone. A Fox News report also says "just before 11:30 A.M." Similarly, the Savannah Patch, a local newspaper, gave "around 11:30."

Here is the Wikipedia page now started (not much there at present):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_U.S. ... -130_crash
I will trust it's 11:26 am as consistent with the reports above.

At the time of the crash:
Mars on Dsc (0°16')
Pluto on Dsc (1°53')
-- Mars-Pluto conj. (2°09' in mundo)
Saturn on WP (1°12')
Mercury on MC (5°08')

14th Malaysian General Election

Post by TheScales_BothWays » Tue May 08, 2018 6:44 pm

Today (May 9th) is Election Day for Malaysians, and therefore also a public holiday. Last time they voted on a weekday was on November 29, 1999, a Monday. Yet, companies have been very cooperative to grant leave to their employees, even Singaporean companies with Malaysian workforce. The parliament was dissolved on April the 7th.

Three major coalitions are contesting:
- Barisan Nasional (BN), the National Front, which is the ruling coalition ever since Malaysia's Independence in 1957.
- Pakatan Harapan (PH), the Alliance of Hope, the major opposition alliance.
- Gagasan Sejahtera (GH), Ideas of Prosperity; although more commonly known as PAS, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, which is the major party in this coalition. However, GH is contesting in only 158 out of 222 total parliamentary seats.

PAS was once part of PH, but has since separated and created GH due to differing views and ideologies.

BN is expected to win by a slim margin, according to most analysts, thanks to factors like 1) gerrymandering, 2) Malaysians (especially rural Malaysians) forgetting about past issues like the 1MDB corruption scandal, 3) Malaysia's terrible press freedom that forces all newspapers and TV channels to publish and air material favouring the National Front and 4) PAS's separation from PH, which could possibly split the opposition vote. The election being held in the middle of the week doesn't seem to affect the expected turnout of 85% of registered voters today.

BN also worries that PAS may split the votes among ethnic Malays (whom, I can safely say, are all Muslims) to some level, with PAS being an Islamist party, and a rising sentiment among Malays that they should vote for a party that upholds and strives for Islam. Meanwhile, some Malaysians suspect that PAS will form a pact with BN if their collective seats won would surpass PH's.

Yet PH is expected to win the popular vote again, as it did in the 2013 elections. And public support for the Alliance of Hope has been the highest yet, even more so with the former Malaysian Prime Minister, Mahathir bin Mohamad, leading the opposition alliance. Urban Malaysians, who form the most of Malaysian netizens, have shown an overwhelming support for the opposition in social media.

What do the mundane charts for Kuala Lumpur say, now that we have the date of the elections? I'm a little worried of the Liblunar, which has Moon-Mars-Pluto influences, although I don't expect the absolute worst to come out of it. The current Caplunar is dormant with a Moon-Mars conjunction. The Capsolar quotidian has Jupiter and transiting Jupiter on the IC, (or can I say it has today's partile Sun-Jupiter opposition on the CapQ MC-IC axis?) and the Cansolar Quotidian has Jupiter square the MC and Pluto on Nadir.

The Capsolar, of course, is showing a strong possibility of a change of leader and government, with Uranus partile rising, Sun partile squaring it and the Ascendant, Pluto partile on MC and Venus not far from the Zenith. Astrologically, Sun-Uranus-Pluto seems like mighty fine symbolism for the taking over of a 60-year-old governement by a new one.

Here are some links to recent articles that brief this year's Malaysian election, by:
The Washingtion Post
The Guardian
Al-Jazeera, and
CNBC.

And I'll also link Jim's earlier post of his brief mundane analysis on the Malaysian election here.

The three prisoners from N. Korea touched down at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland at 2:42 AM Eastern. The plane taxied around awhile, the President entered the plane at 2:54 AM. The three men exited the plane at exactly 3:00 AM, waited at the top of the stairs for photos, then came down the stairs at 3:01 AM to greet the VP and Secretary of State Pompeo.

Jerusalem embassy & Gaza protestes

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue May 15, 2018 8:37 am

I'm particularly interested in what the charts show for yesterday's Gaza protests, in which Israel soldiers fired, killing over 50 Palestinians and wounding about a thousand. This came in response to the U.S. moving our embassy to Jerusalem. - The Capsolar is so very positive for Israel, which of course shows the embassy move and constitutes a U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital (Jupiter on MC, etc.), so I wanted to see what could trigger such outrage and violence in the midst of positive year charts.

To review, the Capsolar has Jupiter at MC and Venus rising! A little Mars comes with the Jupiter, a little Sun with the Venus. (And, of course, Moon-Mercury-Saturn like everybody everywhere.)

Furthermore, the Arisolar is positive - a well-aspected Jupiter exactly square Ascendant for Jerusalem. The chart bears a further Moon-Saturn aspect in the background.

And the May 6 Caplunar is happy and peaceful! Venus rises (about 1°). However, this comes in the midst of a hostile environment, with a 49' Moon-Mars conjunction (background in Israel).

Even the May 13 Arilunar is biased toward positive: Sun is exactly at MC, Jupiter near IC. Again, the lunar aspects run contrary to this trend: Moon squares Mars, background in the Middle East. Ah, b ut one thing does show that is unique to the area: Mundanely, the rather wide Moon-Mars square is only 0°12'.

We also get another negative factor in the Arilunar: Saturn is 0°30' before due west in azimuth, formung a 1°05' Sun-Saturn PVP square: The culminating Sun is square Saturn.

On daily factors, Jupiter has been crossing Israel's Capsolar MC (still in partile orb) - again, the enormous political victory - butyesterday Mars began to conjoin Capsolar Ascendant. The energ is Mars-Jupiter (which is already dominant in the Capsolar), not just Mars, but it clearly marks a few days when violence, fires, etc. would be expected. Then, CapQ MC conjoined Neptune, so mobs and general craziness were predictabke for the day.

So that's the scoop: The charts are overwhelmingly positive, making clear that the primary event for the locale was the embassy move and dedication, with all that it means. The Week chart continued this trend but introduced some negative elements, and Mars conjoined Capsolar Asc with Neptune on CapQ MC for the other events of the day.

Kilauea just erupted from its summit, blasting "a dusty plume of ash" 30,000 feet up. This is just breaking, probably more news coming.

LATER: Reuters said it occurred at 4:15 AM.

May 18, 2018 1:30 AM Doral, Florida. A man took down a large flag at the Trump-owned Trump National Doral Golf Club, draped it over a lobby counter, fired shots into the ceiling and pulled the fire alarm , shouted anti-Trump stuff and waited for police to respond. He shot at them, they responded, and took him into custody. Police shot him in the legs (he's white) and one officer suffered a broken arm. Secret Service is investigating.

The Royal Wedding

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat May 19, 2018 11:37 am

May 19, 2018, 12:00 PM, Windsor Castle (51N29'00", 0W36'15")

England's Prince Harry married American actress Meghan Markle in one of the most widely watched and socially impactful events ever. Though I don't have solid numbers yet, I'd venture to say that viewership was in the same class as Princess Diana's funeral and, due to the advances in technology, far exceeded that of the Charles and Diana wedding.

The event is also standing as one of the most socially impactful events ever, due to a variety of factors, including Prince Harry's history of trying to reform the place of the royal family in relation to the British people; the fact that he married a non-Caucasian, divorced, activist American actress; and a great healing felt in the country which has long emotionally taken Harry under its wing as the wounded small boy forced to walk on camera behind his mother's funeral barge - England's emotional equivalent of America's John-John - and to celebrate "the kid's life turning out OK."

Though he is not the likely heir to England's throne, Harry is in a place to do more than his brother William to push social progress: He is not quite as encumbered by rigorous protocol. Though times have changed since the 1930s, the real reason (it seems to me) that his great-grandfather's brother had to abdicate the throne to marry an American divorcee and Harry does not is that the former was the actual head of the Church of England and Harry likely never will be.

There is another psychological impact of this event that only astrologers are in a place to see. The new Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex was born six days after Charles and Diana's wedding. Her very presence is a form of taking the country back to that point in time. In many ways, this is what the event undertook to do while, simultaneously, taking England forward into a new time.

The wedding began at noon. I don't yet have the time it climaxed. As the ceremony began at noon, Jupiter was preparing to cross IC. [Scales found the time as 12:39 PM.]

Charts for events centered on the British royal family have Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, and Neptune prominent, with a low occurrence of Moon and Uranus. (We might expect more Uranus for this one because of the sharp divergences from custom.) Weddings in general have Venus and Jupiter dominant, and (if such events as Charles & Diana are a clue) no shortage of Moon-Sun combinations.

The charts, especially the Caplunar, describe this quite well. However, the amount of Saturn hitting the Capsolar for final timing was not expected (and it helps make the Bridge rather gruesome). The CapQ angles, though, are right on target, and the CanQ backs it strongly.

Cuban Airline Crash (Flight DMJ 0972)

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat May 19, 2018 12:17 pm

May 18, 2018, 12:08 PM EDT, near Havana, Cuba (specifically 22N59′29″, 82W23′28″)

A Cuban airliner carrying 114 "crashed and burned moments after takeoff" killing 111 of the people aboard. The time is from NY Times. It took off from Jose Marti International Airport. Witnesses saw the plane as it was crashing, an engine already on fire.

A Wikipedia article has appeared here, but currently has some outdated details:

Once more, we get essentially what we expect: Pluto + mixed messages for the year; Mercury-Saturn, Mercury-Pluto, and Moon-Mars for the month; an astounding detailing of everything expected in the Arilunar for the week; and a Moon-Saturn transit plus Mercury and Mars on angles for the day.

Using Columbus for the coordinates, the more recent-term charts are quite expressive. The Caplunar is a "bad stuff happens" chart, with Saturn rising (0°23'), Uranus on IC (3°46'), and a little Mercury and Pluto (plus the universal 0°49' Moon-Mars conjunction). The Canlunar is a "mild but dramatic stuff" of Moon rising closely (1°) and Mars and Pluto more widely setting.

Then we get to the (as usual) amazing CapQ. The Capsolar has a 4° Mars-Jupiter conjunction and CapQ MC is right between them, in orb of both: Accident + everybody's OK. (There is also the ongoing uiversal transit of Saturn to CapQ Moon, 06' for the accident.)

The CanQ was even more obvious about the crash itself. CanQ Ascendant exactly conjoins transiting Uranus. More widely on Ascendant, but just within the 2° that keeps seeming appropriate, is the Cansolar's own Mars-Uranus square.

This is most interesting. I wonder where the story will go next.

I had already started next month's predictions, and there were so many great peace indicators - some for the world, some for U.S. - starting exactly on June 12, that I was ready to commit that, yes, this summit is happening. As of now, it's officially called off, so of course I'm going to change the prediction. (My rule is that I don't alter a prediction after the period has begun, but can change it any time up until then.) I'll persist in the underlying prediction, i.e., that a new wave of peace start then (or whatever words I end up choosing).

As for today's announcement severing it, I'm comparing it to this month's predictions. The strangest thng I see is the observtion that 5/24 has Jupiter crossing CapQ Zenith. Normally I would take this as a mark of diplomacy, not anti-diplomacy. The Canlunar is volatile, with Moon and Pluto closest to angles and Mars-Uranus square more wide from the angles, which certainly is consistent with separation and volatility. My original forecast, though, was that this would be a week when people are upset and not quiet about it, with a renewed populist wave and potentially explosive themes.

Trump, beginning two days ago, has Jupiter square his progressed Moon. For most presidents, this would be indicative of greater diplomacy but, alas, he isn't much like most presidents. It probably means some kind of personally advantageous, ego-inflating situation, which might be this move. He's still under the "revelations revelations revelations" Demi-SLR, and they've been rolling out like crazy; but the chart also has "a smidge of protection," and he's probably taking more noisy moves to redirect people's attentions. Astrologically, he's just come past the worst three or four days of the fortnight, with Saturn's transit to his natal Mercury-Neptune rotating to SNQ angles, for which I forecast "unusually difficulty, demaning days."

Bottom line, perhaps the Korea cancellation is consistent with the forecast (in his Demi-SLR) of "advantage from sacrifice, strained relationships, and a calculated path to survival."

Subtropical Storm Alberto

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon May 28, 2018 7:10 pm

May 28, 2018, afternoon, near Laguna Beach, FL

Hurricane season is officially here (as of today), and Subtropical Storm Alberto made landfall in the Florida panhandle before moving on to swamp southeast Florida. It has caused 2 deaths (journalists in Polk Co., North Carolina). Rainfall has been, and is expected to be, enormous.

I have best current information on time and place from Time Magazine' report, and I'm trying to get better. I'll go with 3 PM for now. (Not even NOAA seems to have actual tracking posted.)

CANSOLAR (Year chart) has Neptune 1°00' from MC, exactly square Venus, with a widely foreground Saturn. The ARISOLAR Concentrates Uranus on Dsc (0°11') and some Sun.

The CAPLUNAR is horribly rageful. The 0°49' universal Moon-Mars conjunction is exactly on EP, Moon 41' past and Mars 45' before, meaning their midpoint in RA is 0°02' from the angle. They square Uranus in RA (it's on IC) - here are the numbers.

296°41' Moon
297°22' EP
27°36' Uranus
298°06' Mars

Saturn and Pluto are also foreground - Saturn reasonably close (3°27'), Pluto further but in 2°15' mundane conjunction with Moon.

And of course we need the prophet of all this enormous rain: Jupiter is 1° from LIBLUNAR MC, with Mars still in the game, 5° below Asc.

For the day, the CapQ reaffirms the rain symbolism: Its Asc squares Jupiter just over 1°. Neptune continues to transit Cansolar MC.

Rosanne cancelled

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Tue May 29, 2018 10:58 am

May 29, 2017 Rosanne Barr tweeted "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes had a baby = VJ" later said VJ is Valerie Jarret (Obama's senior advisor) early this morning.
She later apologized.
Her show, which is a reboot and is enormously popular, was cancelled by ABC about 1:45PM (maybe eastern time) over her "abhorrent" comments.

Roseanne cancellation: May 29, 2018, 1:45 PM (time zone ambiguous, I'll interpret as PDT for the moment), Los Angeles, CA

The question: Was this a national level event or, OTOH, a Los Angeles collective event?

CNN mused that "Reboot of nostalgic TV show canceled after beloved star of yesteryear is racist on Twitter" is as distinctly a 2018 headline as any they've seen this year :)

NATIONAL LEVEL (Washington)
We all know that the Capsolar remains outlandish and icon-smashing on one side, and bad for Mercurial things on the other hand. I actually think a factor here is that Roseanne is (to a certain segment of the population) a legitimate icon. We live in a time when these are all pretty much taken down and out.

The Arisolar just adds harshness and difficulty, which Barr and others have certainly participated in exacerbating.

The Caplunar has a Moon-Mars partile conjunction everywhere. The Liblunar has Mars exactly rising and Mercury on IC. If we weren't going to declare war on someone, this is as good a cultural expression of the themes as anything.

More Mars for the day: CapQ Asc squares Capsolar Mars exactly, while CanQ MC conjoins transiting Mars. The country had a Mars Mars Mars Mars day.

LOCAL LEVEL (Los Angeles)
It's a Neptune year for LA: Capsolar WP is on Neptune. (Plus the stuff that the whole world has.)

The Arisolar is dormant, but has the Moon-Saturn aspect which, perhaps, is responsible for the tone of the show, the behavior that led to cancellation, and the act of cancellation. LA certainly is not shown less depressed or hurtful tha the rest of the world.

The dormant Caplunar has the universal partile Moon-Mars conjunction.

The Weekchart isn't on track. It's the flowing through Canlunar with Venus rising (though a barely-foreground Saturn-Neptune mundane square). The latter is relevant, but the whole focus of the chart is not.

However, the day shows for Los Angeles (where, if nothing else, some people lost jobs and the city's primary industry looked bad in the press). CapQ Ascendant conjoins transiting Saturn and progressed Moon, though they are no longer in partile conjunction. Transiting Neptune remains on Capsolar Dsc.


CONCLUSION: Both national and local impact is shown but the national level impact was much more direct, clear, and consistent.

Correct time is 10:48 a.m. Pacific

"Barr was informed by phone ahead of time. But other "Roseanne" producers and cast members only found out about the decision when ABC issued a terse statement shortly before 11 a.m. Pacific time. "
http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/29/media/a ... index.html
CNN The inside story of how ABC fired Rosanne Barr
The same story later says:
" According to The New York Times, Tuesday happened to be the writing and producing staff's first day back at work for season two...An ABC source confirmed this and said the staffers were just beginning to arrive when the cancellation news hit at 10:48 a.m. Pacific. "
