Son of Kansas lawmaker dies on Verrückt slide

Those who believe that the world of being is governed by luck or chance and that it depends on material causes are far removed from the divine and from the notion of the One.
-Plotinus, Ennead VI.9

To the magus, there exists no accidental happening…everything is established solidly by that law which the wise man discerns in happenings that appear accidental to the profane.

-Kurt Seligmann

A 10-year-old boy was killed Sunday in an accident at Schlitterbahn Water Park in Kansas City, Kan., police and the park said. Winter Prosapio, a spokeswoman for the park, said the boy died on the Verrückt, which is billed as the world's tallest waterslide.

In this post we will see how significant events often occur when transits of faster moving planets trigger important long term configurations. On August 6-7 transit Mercury was forming a T with the Saturn-Neptune square. A chart drawn for the Mercury-Saturn square at Kansas City has the T straddling the horizon axis giving it added importance for the place. The presence of Mars on the IC with Saturn brings the danger of accidents while Neptune points to a water related incident. Mars [1sa] is conjunct the star Kornephoros, beta Herculis. Hercules provides courage, energy, physicality and a daring, all-or-nothing spirit and needs expression often in the form of sports. A Latin epithet for Hercules was saltator, “leaper”, but some lacking a sense of moderation often risk their lives in adventure sports [1]. Moreover, Neptune is conjunct stars of Aquarius in the water pouring from the Urn of the Water Carrier – a perfect image of the  Schlitterbahn Water Park slide.

Some other elements of the chart add further details. The Pluto-Kronos-Hades opposition, anchored to the T-square, has Pluto in the 5th house which rules both children and amusement parks [2]. Here Kronos [10cn] is conjunct the asteroid Orpheus [15cn] related to “death”  Since the TNP Kronos rules leaders in government, we are witnessing the death of a Senator’s child in an amusement park.
