Corey Lidle - Another New York Disaster

On October 11, 2006, Corey Lidle, a pitcher for the New York Yankees baseball team, died after crashing into an exclusive high-rise in Manhattan. He took off in his small plane, a SR20 from the Tetorboro, New Jersey airport at 2:21 PM, and flew around Manhattan for about 20 minutes before crashing into the building. He was flying with his former flight instructor, Tyler Stanger.

Calls to 911 went out at 2:45 PM. People nearby were terrified when they heard a loud bang, and saw a plane crash into the building, followed by heavy smoke. This is a grim reminder to New Yorkers and the world of 911. Now the date 10/11 will be remembered in New York for its connection to a disaster.

Lidle was having one of the best years ever in his baseball career, but if we had looked at his chart previous to the accident we would have seen upcoming problems.

Corey Fulton Lidle has an Aries Sun. He was born on March 22, 1972 in Hollywood, California, time unknown. Aries is the sign of the athlete, and with all the cardinal signs in his chart, Lidle was a go-getter, never staying still for long. With Mars in Taurus, we see the never-ending drive and determination, but this was also a problem, for Mars in the sign Taurus is in its detriment and brings danger, from which he is not able to save himself.

The most challenging configuration in his chart is a possible grand cross between the Moon in 11 Cancer, Pluto in 00 Libra, Jupiter in 08 Capricorn, and the Sun in 02 Aries.

Pluto has a wide orb to the Moon and Jupiter and normally we would not count it as an aspect, but because of what is called a translation of light, it is part of the grand cross. The Sun connects Pluto, the planet of death, to the grand cross. Uranus is involved in the grand cross due to a square to the Moon, again because of the translation of light. So here we see an aspect from birth that involves sudden death, the end of the ego. Uranus is the planet of sudden mishaps, especially through airplanes.

This grand cross configuration was triggered in September by the Solar Eclipse on 9/22 at 29 Virgo, and the Libra Ingress the next day at 00 Libra. The eclipse and the ingress were sitting on his progressed Pluto at 29 Virgo. This in turn triggered the natal opposition to the Sun. They are both part of the grand cross which is one of the most difficult aspects in astrology. Basically the power of the eclipse and the ingress, set off Pluto the planet of major change, (death and depression), the Sun (the planet of life and vitality), the Moon (the planet of function) and Jupiter the planet of travel). Jupiter is usually active in a death chart.

The recent full Moon at 13 Libra, also activated the grand cross through the planet Uranus, (through the translation of light). The Moon was within 2 degrees of his progressed Uranus at 15 Libra, and the natal Moon at 11 Cancer.

The Moon may be anywhere from 5 to 18 Cancer. If the Moon is higher than 13 Cancer then the grand cross is demoted to a T-square, which is still very challenging.

Aries is the sign of the athlete, and with all the cardinal signs in his chart, Lidle is a go-getter, never staying still for long. With Mars in Taurus, we see the never-ending drive and determination, but this is also a problem, for Mars in Taurus is in its detriment and brings danger, from which the native is not able to save himself.

Here we have another example of an athlete leaving our world unexpectedly. The element of danger is strong in this event. He had repeatedly told the press that his flying was safe. With the death of Steve Irwin, we also were faced with a death involving danger, but Steve Irwin knew the danger of what he did. Corey Lidel also left behind a family.

The number 11 in metaphysics is a master number. It is also a portal, a bridge, to the unseen world.
