A man hoping to cycle home cross-country for Chinese New Year realised 30 days into his trip that he had been travelling in the wrong direction. The young migrant worker from China was aiming for his home in Qiqihar, Heilongjiang province, after setting off from Rizhao - over 1,700km away. But he was stopped by traffic police 500km off course, in the central Chinese province of Anhui. When they found out, the police paid for a train ticket to get him home. The man had set off from Rizhao, in Shandong province, in December. Jan. 25 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-38748373
The young migrant worker had set off on his journey from Rizhao just a few days before the New Moon of December 29, 2016. This New Moon was placed amongst the stars of the Sagittarius, the Archer.
Sagittarius has always been a sign associated with shooting for far off goals. An arrow is shot with a bow. http://www.constellationsofwords.com/Constellations/Sagittarius.html
Aiming for far away goals can be literal or figurative. For our Chinese migrant worker it was literal, he was prepared to undertake a long journey home. Also notice that the New Moon is conjunct Mercury (journeys) and opposite the TNP Hades (mistakes). So he set off in the wrong direction!
If we now progress the New Moon chart to January 25, the date of the news, the progressed Ascendant triggers the Mercury-Hades opposition…which is possibly close to the date he discovers his mistake. Astrologers believe that the ascendant signifies a person's awakening to new consciousness, in the same way that the Sun's appearance on the eastern horizon signifies the dawn of a new day.
