Constellation of Space Charts

This is a collection ("constellation") of charts related to Space Program History. All charts display also the Galactic Center, the gravity center of our Milky Way Galaxy, a virtual astrological element strongly associated with all space-related events, currently located at 26 Sagittarius:

First Artificial Satellite

Sputnik 1 launching

October 4, 1957, 10:28 pm R2T (-03:00), Baikonur, Kazakhstan (source: website of the European Space Agency).

This is bucket/funnel chart, because as you may see, the Moon is the only planet in the upper half of the chart, symbolizing the satellite thing. The other planets are crammed into one third of the wheel, starting with Uranus and ending with Saturn, which spells out the word artificial. So, the entire term is "artificial satellite".

The Moon is void of course in Aquarius, so is this small piece of technology thrown out into space, for the sake of science (Uranus in the 1st house trine Saturn) and showing off (Leo rising, with the Sun partile conjunct Jupiter).

The Russian Space Program disasters history is closely linked to this chart, the Sputnik 1 launching chart.

On March 23, 1961, Valentin Bondarenko became the first space related casualty of all time while undergoing training in a special low pressure chamber with a pure oxygen atmosphere. Bondarenko accidentally dropped an alcohol soaked cloth onto an electric hotplate. In the pure oxygen environment, the fire quickly engulfed the entire chamber. The transits to the Sputnik 1 launching chart on that day, Mars at 9 Cancer square the Sun at 2 Aries trigger the natal Libra conjunction between Mars at 6 Libra and the Sun at 11 Libra. This natal conjunction is triggered by adverse transits in most Russian space program tragedies.

First space program in-flight casuality was recorded on April 24 1967, when the Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov was killed on board Soyuz 1. Komarov was killed when the capsule hit the ground. There are persistent rumors that American listening posts in Turkey recorded Komarov cursing the spacecraft and the support crew by radio on his way down. The transits on that day show Black Moon Lilith conjunct the MC.

Four years later, on June 30, 1971, the crew of Soyuz 11 was killed after undocking from space station Salyut 1. The transits trigger the same sensitive natal Sun-Mars conjunction at the beginning of Libra: transiting Uranus at 11 Libra, transiting Sun at 8 Cancer.

Yuri Gagarin

March 9, 1934, 6:30 am R2T (-03:00), in Gagarin (was Klushino) near Gzhatsk, 35e00, 55n33, Russia (birthtime from, no source given).
(died on March 27, 1968, in a crash of a MiG-15 on a routine training flight)

Yuri Gagarin's Moon in Sagittarius is proeminent in the upper hemisphere of the chart, conjunct with the Galactic Center is "out of bounds", that is, it has a declination (27°36´) greater than the maximum Sun declination (23°27´). This Moon located in the 10th house personifies his job to be the first man in space, like the first 'human satellite' of the Earth. The same proeminent Moon in the upper hemisphere is present in the Sputnik chart above, just that there the Moon was in Aquarius (artificial satellite).
