Paralyzed Woman Goes Skydiving

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. The curve observed in the flight of birds, the barking of a dog, the shape of a cloud, are occult manifestations of that omnipresent, coordinator, the source of unity and harmony - Karl  Seligmann 

If you can't walk it doesn't mean you can't fly! This 71 year old woman from Ukraine has managed to fulfill her age-old dream to skydive, even though she is partially paralyzed and has to use a wheelchair. The woman hit the silk near the Ukrainian city of Dnepr. She only needed help while boarding, but after that she was joking all the way along, eager to jump. The woman performed skydiving from a height of 4,200 meters (circa 13,800 feet). May 28

Charts for the phases of the Moon are among the most reliable indicators of events on earth. This is especially so at places where significant planetary combinations occupy the angles. If the New Moon contains a seed theme, then the subsequent phases can be thought of as a  progressive unfolding of the theme. The  New Moon of May 15 was conjunct the star Algol, beta Perseus. Nick Fiorenza explains that this star is about the need or a challenge to overcome our fears [1].  The news above comes to us in the First Quarter Moon phase. A chart for the phase at Dnepr has the luminaries forming a T-square with the meridian. The Sun is conjunct the asteroid Hephaistos [28ta] while the asteroid Terpsichore [28aq] is on the MC. On the IC with the Moon are stars Adhafera and Al Jabha, the mane and forehead of the Lion, which Nick Fiorenza links to “adventurers and trail blazers” [2].  Martha Wescott provides the following definitions:

HEPHAISTOS: Problems with the limbs (usually the legs;) lameness.
TERPSICHORE: Dance, aerobics, exercise that increases flexibility; coordination, agility, grace and mobility.

So the  First Quarter Moon phase at Dnepr is drawing our attention not only to one such adventurer (Adhafera and Al Jabha) but  someone who is physically handicapped (Hephaistos)  and yet overcomes her fears (Algol New Moon) and takes part in a dangerous exercise that requires “agility, grace and mobility” (Terpsichore).
