Below are a few brief articles for you consideration written by long-time DFW based astrologer, Eugene Johnson. Thank you, Gene for your contribution to SignsInLife, I appreciate the input. Hopefully, I can find the time to make a few comments within the next couple of weeks. Too many irons in the fire right now. But again, I appreciate any and all input.

The following two articles were written and researched by Eugene Johnson–March 2014:

Malaysian Air Lines Flight 370

Malaysian Air Lines Flight 370,  carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members  took off from Kuala Lumpur at 12.21am (4.21pm GMT) Saturday bound for Beijing, where it was expected to land at 6.30am (10.30pm GMT). But after reaching 35,000ft and 120 nautical miles off the coast of the Malaysian town of Kota Bharu the plane vanished    Military radar tracking shows that the aircraft changed altitude after making a sharp turn over the South China Sea as it headed toward the Strait of Malacca, a source close to the investigation into the missing flight told CNN. The plane flew as low as 12,000 feet at some point before it disappeared from radar, according to the source.  The sharp turn seemed to be intentional, the source said, because executing it would have taken the Boeing 777 two minutes — a time period during which the pilot or co-pilot could have sent an emergency signal if there had been a fire or other emergency on board.

The chart for the take-time of  FLT370, it shows and ASC of 3 SAG, MC 0 VIR.  Thus,  Jupiter as the ascendant lord rules the ‘event’ and also Pisces at the 4th ( the outcome of the event).  Jupiter is placed in the 8th house, (death), and Neptune is placed, along with the Sun in the 4th.  The Neptune in Pisces suggests several things – that the plane was ‘lost at sea’, or perhaps some kind of subterfuge was involved – sadly the final fate of the plane may never be definitely determined.   The loss of all the passengers is indicated by Jupiter in the 8th.

It has been speculated by some that the plane’s true destination was perhaps somewhere in  the Australian outback.  Looking at the AstroMap of the event we see that the Mercury  Local Space line of the flight passes through Australia as does the Descendant line of Jupiter – these two lines cross at 127E & 27 S, with an ASC of 10 CAP, MC of 29 VIR.  The point is about 2700 miles from Kuala Lumpur, which  is about the distance to Beijing. So the plane would have sufficient fuel to reach somewhere near this location.

It should also be noted that the Local Space line of the flight to Beijing was along the Neptune line.


Vladimir Putin awakens the Russian Bear


What is going on with Russia, in particular, with Mr. Putin? A tried and true mundane technique over through the ages has been the use of the natal chart of the ruler of a country to interpret the fate of his domain.  Mr. Putin seems to have established himself as the absolute ruler of Russia, as he seems to get pretty much what he wants.  So, let’s look at his chart and see if there is anything there that might predict what actions Russia, under his direction, might take during the next year or so.


Putin’s birth data according to Lois Rodden is: October 7, 1952, Leningrad, RU, C rated.


I won’t go into a detailed analysis of his chart as the time is probably incorrect, however, the Scorpio Ascendant does seem to fit the dictator and former head of the Russian KGB.  His Sun at the 14th degree of Libra (with Saturn at the 18th) is really in the hot seat these days, and will continue to be so until early next year as the Uranus, Pluto square finally passes out of orb.  Putin’s natal Uranus at the 19th degree of Cancer is square to natal Sun and Saturn is indicative of a guy with a strong independent streak who is often unpredictable and even erratic in behavior.  In view of this we probably should expect the unexpected from Russia, as long as Putin is in power.


The transits to Putin’s chart for the remainder of the year are to say the least, dynamic.


July 23         – tr. Uranus SR opp n. Saturn

October 5     – tr. Mercury SR conj n. ASC

October 26   – tr. Mercury SD conj n. Saturn

December 9  – tr. Jupiter conj n. Pluto

December 22 – tr. Uranus opp n. Sun


(These aspects are within a 90 minute orb)


Looking at the eclipse picture there is a lunar eclipse on October 8, this year at 15 Aries 05 which will configure the Moon with Uranus at 14 Aries 29, forming a Grand Cross with Putin’s natal Sun, Saturn and Uranus and the transiting Pluto, Sun, Venus and North Node.   Also thrown into this hot mix is the exact square in October of secondary progressed moon to natal moon.


A second lunar eclipse occurs on April 5, 2015, at 14 Libra 24, that will again set-up a Grand Cross with Putin’s natal planets and the transiting planets.


So, what does it look like?  The astrological picture points to October as the month when it could ‘hit the fan’, with a second peak in April.   In view of these measurements the American and Russian relations will be extremely tense for the foreseeable future.
