This was a quite remarkable story. Here's what it boils down to. Regrettably we don't have coordinates for the in-air event, but this is probably close enough to capture the astrology of it.Jupiter Sets at Dawn wrote: ↑Tue May 15, 2018 4:42 pmSichuan Airlines flight 3U-8633 departed Chongqing at 6.30am on Monday morning, actual take off at 6:27 AM, due to arrive in Lhasa, Tibet at 9.30am. It made an emergency landing at Shuangliu International Airport in Chengdu, 250 miles west of Chongqing, at 7:43 AM.
The heating element in the right cockpit window malfunctioned and approximately 60 nautical miles west of Chongqing, the window cracked and blew out, sucking the co-pilot half way out. He was held in the plane by his seatbelt, and damaging the flight control unit, making the plane very difficult to control.
The pilot, working in temps of 40 below zero, (and with his co-pilot half out the window) took the plane into a steep dive from 32,100 feet to 23,300 feet (minimum possible over the mountains) and then to 9,800 as soon as they were clear of the mountains. Landing took place about 35 minutes after first descent, total flight time was 1hour 16 minutes

Sichuan Airlines Flight 8633. Midair, copilot's cockpit window blew off, dragging him half-way out the window (held in place by his seatbelt), his body damaging part of the flight control panel. No casualties. Other details quoted above from JSAD. Having not looked at the charts yet, I expect Mercury-crises (especially Mercury-Uranus, secondarily Mercury with Mars or Saturn) and marks of heroism and extreme luck.
The landing occurred with Neptune exactly on Zenith and Venus soon to rise (5° below Asc).

I need to make some aftermath comments on this. This event is one of many that documents that Sidereal Mundane Astrology has some real, solid, reliable in the scientific sense. I'm persuaded by watching these incidents day in, day out; but, formally, an even better indicator is that I could tell you, without seeing the charts for this event, what would be in them - and I was right. Scintillating right! Majestically right !! This isn't because I'm so good at it. It's because the astrology is so good. Anyone who read the chapter on vehicular disasters in my book and noted the profile summary at the start of the chapter, would have been able to do exactly the same thing: know what the charts would say in advance. And we're right about this kind of thing 80-90% of the time. (Life is complicated enough to throw us some zingers here and there.)
In this case, there were two things happening: First, there was a really dangerous, life-threatening bad event involving this airplane. Secondly, everybody came out alive, entirely due to the skill and heroism of the pilot. Odds were extremely high (and I mean odds of the scientific certainty type) that the following would be true:
- It was a bad events, so malefics would dominate the angles and Moon aspects. (This isn't very persuasive: There are enough malefics and disruptors at any given time that the odds favor being right. But the rest, below)
- Mercury would be highlighted as a main player. (Now we get into less odds-supported factors.)
- Mercury-Uranus aspects are the most common for travel accidents or vehicular crises, so it's always safe to predict them for this sort of event.
- Other Mercury afflictions can be expected (aided by knowing this is a Mercury-Saturn year overall; but we also count Mercury-Mars etc.).
- These "good news, nobody got hurt" events have all been Jupiter-dominated and, to a lesser extent, Jupiter + Venus. We expect this to stand out but NOT with afflicted Venus or Jupiter, which would indicate loss of life etc. They have to be strong and unencumbered, stake their own claim to the event without interfering with the "bad stuff" placements.
- To a lesser extent - less certain - are clear heroism indicators, usually from Sun in obvious combinations. This is often absorbed into the "lucky end" Jupiter etc., though.
- Because it was so freaky, I want some Pluto! If not, then Uranus has to be the active player and cover for Pluto. (This is the one expectation where I was disappointed.)
The Capsolar put a 0°04' Uranus-Pluto square on angles, with the Sun-Venus-Uranus trio being compatible with the event. (Other than the freak factor, none of this was specifically expected, but it fits.)
The Arisolar gave us the luck: An unencumbered Venus-Jupiter opposition across the horizon. The plane had its window blow out in one of the luckier spots on Earth. (Separately - not interfering with the Venus-Jupiter - Moon still highlights Saturn and Pluto.)
The Caplunar also has both halves, kept separate: For luck (and, I suppose, heroism) there is an exactly angular Sun opposite a foreground Jupiter. Separately, Moon, Mercury, and Mars are all within half a degree of exact aspect! (It's wonderful the way these were kept separate.)
Then the Arilunar is the main event chart. It's astounding except it's exactly what we expect. Mercury, Uranus, and Mars are all tightly angular, with Mercury-Uranus (THE aspect of this sort of thing) being only 0°05' wide, and both square angular Mars within 1°.
For the day, we have Saturn and Pluto marking the main "freaky bad event" period, but transiting Sun at MC opposite ingress Mars: Here, at the last minute, is a clear signal of the pilot's masterful, heroic actions.
The main point is: Confirmation of the science of astrology in this case - and, actually, in most cases of well-defined significant mass events - is found in our ability to know what the charts will say before we look at them. I encourage everyone to take in the importance of this.
