Mizar and the ‘fireworks’ truck accident in China

A truck carrying fireworks in central China exploded on Friday morning, destroying an expressway bridge and killing at least six people, according to state media reports.

The explosion occurred amid heavy fog on the Yihang bridge near the city of Sanmenxia in central Henan province at about 8.52am, according to the state newswire Xinhua, causing an 80-metre section of the bridge to collapse and sending six vehicles plummeting 30 metres to the ground.

Here is the horoscope  for the Gemini solar eclipse of 21st May 2012 at Sanmenxia. The eclipse was conjunct the stars of Pleaides which have been associated with tragedies[1]. The IC [15vi44] is conjunct Mars [10vi53] and  the star Mizar [15vi52].   Notice that by the rules of mundane astrology the eclipse is very significant since it places a powerful T-square involving Pluto-Uranus-Hades-Kronos on the angles. Astrologers have associated Pluto in Capricorn with collapse of infrastructure like roads and bridges [3].

Progressing the chart to 1st February 2013, we find that the IC has reached the conjunction to the eclipse triggering off its effects. So what are the possible effects that could have been expected and that actually took place?

Since the eclipse is Gemini  is square Neptune opposite Mars, it is quite appropriate that a road [Gemini ruled by Mercury…god of roads] accident took place in midst of fog [Neptune…haze confusion, lack of clarity]. The nature of the accident is shown by the stars Mizar [15vi52]  and Zosma [11vi29] with which Mars[10vi53] is conjunct.

Mizar, with averted alignments is also known for catastrophic fires or massacres. Mizar can however express quite artistically. Gunpowder can express as beautiful fireworks as well as devastating explosions. The expression of Mizar is always noticed in a grand way, in character with showy and dramatic Leo.[2]

[1] The Living Stars, Dr. Eric Morse, p.39.

The waning gibbous moon [26vi16]  occurred on 30th Jan, just a day before the incident. It was conjunct the star Benetnash[27vi08]  aspecting the Sun [11aq16]  on the Ascendant.

In an important position in a mundane map, Benetnash will claim human lives in calamities such as mine accidents, collapse of houses and bridges, mountain slides, earth tremors and catastrophes caused by weather.
