On the anniversary of the maiden voyage of the Titanic I decided to look into the astrological data of the ship, and her fateful journey. Just how important is the moment a ship sets sail.
Wednesday, April 10, 1912 at 12 noon the Titanic began her voyage from Southampton, England to New York. Four days into the journey the luxurious passenger liner struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean on Sunday, April 14at 11:40pm. The ship sank on Monday, April 15 at 2:20am.
An astrological chart for the moment of the Titanic’s collision point to a number of crucial aspects which took place, forming two T-squares or a Grand Square between planets. The rising sign was at a critical degree ruled by Saturn, Taurus and Leo. Mercury was in retrograde forming one of the T-squares. Astrologers know T-squares can represent a number of serious problems. When you have two T-squares you had better pay attention to what the planetary aspects are telling you.
Mercury and Neptune point out mistakes were made due to ill considered decisions relating to the safety of the ship near icebergs. In charge of this large ship Captain Edward John Smith, an Aquarius Sun Sign, understood the perils of sailing in the North Atlantic, but on this dark night mistakes were made creating critical consequences.
Despite the moment of collision revealing difficult planetary aspects it was important to look into the moment the ship began its voyage on April 10, 1912. The chart for the maiden journey of the Titanic suggests the ship would run into serious difficulty quickly. Mercury in retrograde ruled the passage, and it formed a T-square with four other planets signifying an accident. If the company had used an astrologer the voyage date, and time would have been changed knowing there could be a large loss of life. The chart has a lot more information and detail revealing the disaster.
As an astrologer I wanted to look into one more chart to see if the ship was susceptible to accidents from the very beginning. The Titanic was launched on Wednesday, May 31, 1911 at 12:15pm. I consider this the birth date of the Titanic. The Titanic’s birth chart signifies Mercury ruled the ship . Mercury and Saturn were aspected well in the heavens, and actually ruled long distance travel. Mars in Cancer represented the ship builders, and the sea. Mars was in a difficult aspect with Pluto and Lilith revealing possible accidents and loss of life in the ships future. Within the chart there is much more information indicating if the ship’s owners had used astrology for all of the Titanic’s travel it may never have gone to its watery grave with 1,514 souls.
