Mercury-Saturn and the Nepal air crash

A plane carrying 71 passengers and crew has crashed on landing at Nepal's Kathmandu airport, killing at least 38 people. At least 17 survived. Rescuers pulled bodies from the charred wreckage of the plane, operated by Bangladeshi airline US-Bangla, after a raging fire was put out. The flight landed at 14:20 local time (08:35 GMT), according to flight tracking website FlightRadar24. 12 March

Charts for exact planetary aspects are of great significance especially when the planets fall in aspect to the horizon or meridian axis. A chart for the Mercury-Saturn square of March 11 has it straddling the horizon axis at Kathmandu. This aspect is well known to be connected with travel related accidents. Moreover, the square completes a T with the TNP Kronos (related to aircrafts) on the ascendant. So putting the pieces together the chart is indicative of an aircraft accident.

In addition, the accident took place just a day before the Waning Crescent Moon phase which places the Uranus-Pluto-Zeus T-square on the horizon. Ebertin’s keyword for Uranus-Pluto is an accident (actually because of the sudden release of hidden or repressed energy as in a volcanic eruption). It cannot be a coincidence that at the reported time of the crash, the same T-square straddles the meridian with the Moon having just crossed the conjunction to apex Pluto.
