Astrological Aspects of the Sri Lanka Explosion
The horoscope of the Sri Lanka explosion, which took place in Karadiyanaru in the eastern coastal district of Batticaloa, show that fate exercised its powers through the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto which were placed in particularly sensitive areas of the chart of the moment. Inadequate precautionary measures are well illustrated with Pluto in Capricorn angular in the first house. Moon governed the house of death and was emphasized in the first house in Capricorn, showing the many dead. The foreign workers, who may have been instrumental in the blast, or at least the foreign origin of the explosives, were well represented in the house of foreign lands with Sun and Mercury in Virgo. This shows that some minute detail was the problem. The magnitude of this accident is shown, astrologically speaking, by Jupiter and Uranus, both in very strong positions on the cusp of the house of the "end of things". Both these also are apt to describe the trucks, being placed in the horoscope sector dealing with transport.
Three containers filled with explosives, probably dynamite, destined for road construction detonated Friday outside a police station in eastern Sri Lanka, killing many people. It is understood the explosion was accidental and no sabotage is suspected. The blast occurred at a police depot where the munitions were stored for safe keeping in the small town of Karadiyanaru in the eastern Batticaloa district, Eastern Sri Lanka.
The explosives were intended for road construction being carried out by a Chinese firm. Most of those killed were police officers, as well as two Chinese contractors. Images of the blast on local television showed the police station pulverised to nothing. A fertilizer shop was also completely destroyed and power to the area was cut off.
The explosives were to be taken to a quarry and were parked at the Karadiyanaru Police Station. At the time of writing, it is not yet known how many policemen and public were killed or injured, but it was certainly a great number. The blast flattened the nearby police station and shops and seems to have wounded at least 52 people. The death toll may be around 25, of whom 16 may have been police officers but these figures will not be known for sure for some time. It seems that the explosives belonged to a Chinese firm engaged into the building of roads in the area. The Chinese government will be probing the death of two nationals and will inspect the site of the blast to obtain the best information about the incident.

It is said that many of the injured had head injuries. A police spokesman said that the truck was moving out of the stores when an explosion had first gone off inside the truck which triggered off another set off explosions. Information is contradictory at this stage and it has also been said that the explosion happened when two Chinese nationals arrived to take some explosives from one of the three explosives laden containers which were kept at the Karadiyanaru Police Station for safety.

HOT ASTROLOGY - The horoscope of Russian Ladyzhensky who died in the most stupid sauna competition in Finland and his survivor competitor Finn Kaukonen
Is extreme stupidity written in the stars? The astrology of the Russian sauna contender who steamed himself to death shows that there is some influence of the stars in senseless accidents horoscopes. Thankfully, his challenger Timo Kaukonen survived this horrific sauna competition in Finland though it remains to be seen in what shape he'll come out of hospital. He might want to read scientific articles on sauna health benefits...
As for dead Russian Vladimir Ladyzhenskiy, some could nominate him for the Darwin Awards designed to commemorate those who perfect the human gene pool by (accidentally) removing themselves from it. The Award is generally bestowed posthumously.
Ladyzhenskiy was an Aries, the first Fire sign of the zodiac and an accomplished amateur wrestler, a martial art befitting his sun sign. He was also involved in charities in Novosibirsk in Siberia, an activity that is quite common with Arians. Arians are also known to have a liking for extreme sensations. The competition didn't even have a prize worth dying for.

explaining his love for this activity.
|Vladimir Ladyzhensky |
Zodiac sign: Aries
Zodiac sign: Cancer
|Fire, Air and Water|
|The theme of this astrological accident is dominated by malefic planets which forebode a tragedy for this location on that day with 3 planets in fire signs, 3 in air signs and the Moon, the most potent water symbol, enhanced in the sign of Cancer. So Fire, Air and Water easily overpowered the one measly position of Mercury in Virgo, an Earth sign connected with reasoning and practicalities. This tragedy highlights yet again that stupid contests are written at least in part in the stars. It is hoped that authorities all around the world will put a definitive stop to such wild and pointless competitions.|
|An accurate astrological definition for the concept of "dim-witted, idiotic behavior" does not exist but some indications on which stars so fried the contestants' grey cells leading them to face certain death by cooking can be found. Native Mercury, which rules intelligence, would have had to be placed unfavorably in the contestant's birth chart. This, from the point of view of astrological reading, is actually the case: when it came to being obstinate and unyielding in being the first, the stars gifted him with more than just muscles. Of course, one should not dismiss the weight of education, culture and environment. Certainly, Mercury is definitely weak in this astrology chart...|
|Defective equipment, lack of competition rules, drugs?|
|The horoscope of this sorry day should reveal whether the equipment was partly to blame or not. It certainly looks like the method of pouring water over fire was a strong contributor to sickening the contestants. Yet, it was the rules of the game that were defective, not the new design of the sauna. When this astrology article was drafted, there was some dispute as to whether the contestants had brought their medical certificate authorising them to compete. That means the rules may not have been observed. Finally, on the previous day, it is said that the Russian had been caught trying to cheat by greasing his skin, which is expressly forbidden. |
|Some of the horoscope aspects of the day's charts, when confronted with Ladyzhenskiy's horoscope tell of possible drug use; it would not be surprising to hear that the autopsy did discover painkilling medicines in his body. The astrology can go further in outlining that these drugs may well have clouded his reasoning. Alcohol would not have been ingested as this is forbidden in the championship regulations and easily noticeable; however, many painkillers with mind-numbing pharmaceuticals exist. |
|Unusual psychological elements would also be at play, since the spirit of competition between Russians and Finns dates from a long time ago and may have exacerbated Ladyzhenskiy's wish to win. The Russian who died stated before the competition that he would not yield to the Finn at any cost. In the past 12 years since this horrid game was started, it was always the Finns that won. The Finn Timo Kaukonen stated, just before entering the deadly cabin, that this year's contest would be much tougher than other years, very hard, as the sauna technique had changed. If it had been any other other nationalities, they probably wouldn't have had to show off. |
The final of the competition was scheduled to run at 19h30. It was impossible to find out exactly at what time the tragedy happened, so the chart has been set for 19h46m11s, which is when the ASC comes to the exact square of Saturn. There is an exact conjunction aspect between the ASC and Pluto at 19h52m49s - amazing! This was on Saturday evening 7 August 2010 in Finland, in the town of Heinola, coordinates 61°12'06"N, 26°01'56"E.
|The date of birth for the Finn Timo Kaukonen may be 5 July 1970, but this would need to be confirmed. |
|The date of birth for the Russian Vladimir Ladyzhenskiy is 4 April 1948, in Chita, Russia, and since no time of birth is known, a noon chart was used for his place of birth.|
|What happened in the sauna?|
|The hell machine poured water over burning stones making effectively making this small enclosed space a virtual steaming cooking pot, with 100% humidity and a temperature of 110°C. Where a high temperature can be fairly well tolerated with a dry sauna, adding water with a machine made it a burning vapor pot. The contestants roasted like basted chickens. |
|If one makes the comparison with cooking ustensils, one cooks potatoes in 20 minutes in water at 100°, or in 5 minutes in a pressure-cooker at 122°C. Cooking times can typically be reduced by about 70 percent. (read Wikipedia pressure-cooker). |
|These guys remained 7 minutes and 25 seconds in 100% humidity, ie. in water, at 110°C. - yeah, the organizers said "more than 6 minutes" but if you look at the video by Al-Jazeera (Warning: Readers' discretion advised as some images can be disturbing), you'll see the rescue team entered the box at 6m58s and only removed them - forcibly since the mad contestants did not want to stop cooking - after 7m04s, reaching the outside at around 7m25s. |
|As even a basic cook knows, it's not enough to take your spuds or egg out of boiling water to stop the cooking process, you need to pour cold water for some time to arrest it in the heart of your veggie or egg... So in effect, these madmen continued cooking well until after the rescuers poured cold water onto them. They were burned with dark brown patches of skin, the skin detached itself exactly like your basting your Sunday chicken in your oven. |
Sports from Hell
A florid article by non-mad participant Rick Reilly in a Finnish sauna competition who stopped in time is here and describes just what one feels doing such an activity.. His book "Sports from hell" can be bought at Amazon.com.
Morale of the sauna cooking story
It's really quite stupid to go die in a Finnish sauna when during the same time period there are violent Moscow fires. He could have saved the money spent on the plane ticket.
The other four men came out of the sauna after some 3 to 4 minutes, but the Russian and the Finn took the heat for twice the time. Since medicines are not prohibited, they might have taken some that ups the pain threshold while at the same time diminishing brain power, which is rather typical of that kind of drug
Vladimir Ladyzhensky's birth horoscope
|Iron will, control freak and lack of humility |
|Ladyzhensky's horoscope shows an iron will, an indestructible tenacity, which led to his death, an unyielding need for control of physical energy - that is due to the conjunction of Mars, Saturn and Pluto. Minutes before the competition, he told journalists that "this year, I am going to win. At any cost". Mars and Saturn are in close parallel of declination in the helio chart, showing a man who enjoyed hitting or hard contests. He was a wrestler and took hard competitions very seriously. It was his way of knowing he was a man. Ladyzhensky had this conjunction of Mars, Saturn and Pluto, in the fixed sign of Leo, a warm, dry, masculine fire sign, with Mars being stationary direct, and the other two retrogrades.|
|An unsecure soul and fragile emotions|
|This powerful conjunction of Mars, Saturn and Pluto is in opposition to Lilith - soul and karma indicator, so this treble conjunction was going against his deeper soul needs. In addition, the Moon is somewhere within an opposition of this conjunction, whether he was born morning or evening: This would have meant that any loss of control would be perceived as terribly emotionally threatening. Moon in Aquarius would have given him a non-conformist view of what needed to be controlled.|
|A drugged Piscean Mercury which lacked limits|
|He fulfilled his horoscope leanings by participating in one of the most uniquely cretinic contest. Mercury in Pisces, tightly square Uranus in Gemini, would have made his brain quite foggy when it came to dealing with practicalities. It's also involved in a mystical triangle with Chiron in Scorpio. The idea of taking unmeasured risks might have been appealing. Reasoning was faulty as gauging such risks was totally absent in this particular configuration. And that's not even mentioning that Mercury in Pisces is a good candidate for drug and alcohol substances that dull the brain.|
|Ever more, bigger risks|
|In the heliocentric chart, Mercury is involved in a tight quincunx with Saturn in that chart, so he was either (a) preoccupied with small details and small matters not seeing the larger picture, or (b) seeing huge projects and being unable to account for the tiny grain of sand that would make the projects collapse. The contrast between two opposed ways of leading one's life is reinforced with the Mars Jupiter square, showing inability to plan projects of a reasonable size: the man was for ever seeking bigger thrills without accounting for all small but important details.|
|Sauna health benefits|
|As an aside, the latitudes of Mars and Neptune in the helio chart are closely parallel, indicating intoxicating products or alcohol or drug addictions. Such are very common in the sports world, and in this instance, it makes it pretty certain the autopsy will find narcoleptic residues. It is said that the cause of his death was the 70% burns over the body but the autopsy have not been published. Sauna burns are not confined to skin destruction, but also to the tissues underneath, muscles, tendons, etc. Such extensive burns provoke the body to have massive organ failures, even in fit people. As for the brain, beyond 41°Celsius, fits are common. The few people that die in saunas in Finland, over 80% were drunk, and |
middle-age. Otherwise, it is said that saunas can bring many health benefits. This man wasn't in the competition to improve his health!
|Considering the planets in Leo/Fire, it may well be that he had a heart attack. Since his radical Mercury, in Pisces (brain in water), is tightly square Uranus, in Gemini (epileptic brain - electricity in air sign), I would not be surprised if the man had drunk quite a lot of water before the competition, which boiled his brains in the sauna and entailed a brain seizure, which seems, from the horrid pictures, what exactly happened. |
|As a final note - even if he was 62 years of age, Ladyzhenski was not in bad shape, he had won the senior championships in the below 63kg Greco-Roman wrestling in 2004 and was managing administrative aspects of the wrestling oriented Karelin-foundation in Novosibirsk. The doctors speculate the stress shock could have triggered an otherwise dormant heart condition.|
|Was it Fate?|
|The above astrological description of Ladyzhensky's native chart means that had he not perished in that accident, then, at some point or other, he probably would have had some other lethal or almost lethal encounter. The man was in good physical condition as a seasoned wrestler - a sport quite in agreement with his radical astrological aspects. |
|The Finns say: "If drink, cigarettes, or sauna can’t help, the illness is fatal". And so it was...|

Astrological charts for the time of the Finnish Sauna Contest timed for 19h46m11s, which is when the ASC comes to the exact square of Saturn. Note that when 6 minutes and 38 seconds have elapsed, the Ascendant exactly conjoins Pluto at 19h52m49s. By the time the contestants were pulled out, 7 minutes and 25 seconds later, at 19h53m36s, it was too late.

The Finn Timo Kaukonen can thank God he is still alive (though in what shape?), and he owes this to having come out first. As for Russian Vladimir Ladyzhenski, the few seconds later that were lost in pulling him out made all the difference.

Vladimir Ladyzhensky's Astrology Charts
How did he manage not to be killed by some sport activity until then? Probably because of the Venus in Taurus quincunx Jupiter in Sagittarius which, as extraordinarily dignified planets, gave him fantastic luck... up to when both were attacked at the same time, by the planets at the end of Aquarius and Pisces
