Stephen Hawking dies

World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. He died peacefully in his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said. He was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time. "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today," his children said. At the age of 22 Stephen Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.The illness left him wheelchair-bound and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser. 14 Mar.

In the last post, I attributed the aircrash in Nepal to the Mercury-Saturn square which appeared on the angles at Kathmandu. A chart for the same square at Cambridge has it once again placed sharply on the angles. It is actually a T-square with the TNPs Kronos-Hades and the asteroid Requiem (death) on the IC. 

For Mercury-Saturn, Ebertin in his book The Combination of Stellar Influences writes:

Principle:  Depth of thought and mental work; logical mind; industriousness, the application of method, philosophical thinking.
Biological correspondence: The blocking of the nervous system; the relationship of the nervous system to speech and writing.

Mercury-Saturn is indicative of a disciplined (Saturn) mind (Mercury) - often the hall mark of a scientist. But Mercury - Saturn – problems (Saturn) with speech or movement (Mercury)  would also be something to consider with this combination.

All this describes Stephen Hawking perfectly.

Also Saturn is named after the Roman god Saturn, equated to the Greek Chronos.    In Greek mythology, Chronos in pre-Socratic philosophical works is said to be the personification of time. Some of the current English words which show a tie to khronos/chronos and the attachment to time are chronology, chronic, and chronicle.

With the TNP Kronos [1] in the mix we are speaking of a famous scientist and if we add the TNP Hades [1] we can see his interest in the past with his book A History of Time.
