The Astrology of Fatal Aircraft Incidents – Part II

[NOTE:  Please read Part I here https://proastrologer.com/?p=338 or what is to follow here will not make sense.]

 

Now we can look at some results of the study.  Be advised that some of these percentages may look small, but there are thousands of charts being examined.  The methodology was to strive for a higher percentage difference when the raw numbers were small.  Also, the numbers should prove to be cumulative – that is, the more factors that show up in a specific chart, the higher the chances of a fatal incident.

The Experimental Group are 3,831 charts for the departure times for flights involved in fatal incidents (all originated in the United States because that’s the data that was available.  The Control Group is 38,310 charts based on the data of the 3,831 Experimental Group, with year, month, place and time data shuffled randomly to replicate the demographics.

  • Difference – 10.5%

 

Moon in 22-28 Sagittarius

  • Experimental – 1.91 %
  • Control – 1.67%
  • Difference – 14.2%

 

There may be some non-astrological explanations for some of these factors – for example Sun and Mercury conjunct the Ascendant and Sun in the 12th House because of all the flights that depart early in the morning – but they hold up against a Control Group modeled on the demographics of the Experimental Group.

Also, some might wonder why the specific degree areas 3°-7° Sagittarius and 22-28 Sagittarius were singled out for testing.  Here’s why:

 

In Part III, we’ll look at some examples and try to figure out what this all means.
