Hot air balloon crash near Lockhart

The Texas Department of Public Safety has confirmed 16 people are dead after a hot air balloon crash near Lockhart early Saturday morning. The accident occurred shortly after 7:40 a.m on the 700 block of Jolly Road. July 30

The accident took place just after Mercury and Mars formed an exact square on Friday July 29 at 3:48 pm. Just a few minutes later at 4:06 pm Uranus stationed retrograde. The map for the Mercury-Mars square -  a combination associated with travel accidents – has the planets very significantly straddling the horizon axis. The other notable combination is a Grand Cross straddling the MC. Here Saturn [9sa] is conjunct the star Antares. Antares which was Sin, the heart of ancient China’s huge sky-Dragon, was also called Ta-Ho, the Great Fire [1].  

On the MC [10vi55]  are the stars Al Suhail (11vi23) of the Celestial Ship Argo and epsilon Antlia (11vi11)  of  the Air Pump – an airship!

As Robert Hand points out:

The actual images of the constellations made up by the stars are not equal 30-degree segments. They can vary from about 15 degrees to over 45 degrees. And not only that, but they do not have distinct boundaries (except for arbitrary ones created by modern astronomers). They can overlap, and there can be gaps between them.

It is because of this that the images of the constellations shown above come together at  around 11 Virgo to produce an airship.

In previous posts we have delineated Jupiter-Neptune metaphorically  as “huge gas bubbles” and “bubble schemes” and Saturn as a “reality check” that can bring such gas bubbles down to earth. Here we see an event that depicts it literally.
