A man who lives nearby told me the following story today. On Saturday, 13 September 2014, he was mowing his lawn when his weedwacker died. Around 4 pm he was driving to the local home depot when something fell out of the truck and onto the road in front of him. He applied his brakes to avoid hitting the object, got out of his car and pulled the object to the side of the road. It was a weedwacker!
He assumed that the truck belonged to a professional landscaper but could identify no markings which would reveal the identity of the landscaper. Being a good citizen, he waited by the side of the road for about 20 minutes, assuming the the truck driver had heard a crash as the object hit the road and therefore expecting the landscaper to return. It became apparent that the truck was not coming back and so he was stuck with the device. When he got home, the weekwacker worked perfectly and was of a better quality than the one he was intending to replace. Of course, if he ever learns who the landscaper is, he will return the equipment which fell out of the truck and nearly damaged his car.
He was kind enough to give me his birth data. His chart is reproduced below with the transits for 4 pm EDT at this location around the outside of his natal chart.
This chart is interesting because of the lucky transits to the natal chart. Transiting Jupiter, the planet of luck, is sextile the man’s ASC. Transiting Venus, the lesser benefit, is sextile his MC. The transiting Part of Fortune is conjunct the transiting Sun. Transiting Mars applies to sextile natal Jupiter. The transiting Moon applies to conjoin natal Venus. Transiting Venus is almost exactly trine natal Mars in the 8th of other people’s possessions. Transiting Jupiter is trine the man’s natal Part of Fortune.
All in all, this is a very fortunate chart by transit. Too bad he wasn’t on his way to buy a lotto ticket!
