Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras dies in car accident

On Sunday, 26 October 2014, baseball player Oscar Taveras and his girlfriend died in a car accident in the Domincan Republic where he was born on 19 June 1992.  It is always instructive to study the charts of such dramatic events to learn more about astrological symbolism.

The time of birth of Mr. Taveras is not available, so I cast a sunrise chart which is a generic chart for someone born on the same day and in the same place of birth.  Here is his sunrise natal chart (time of birth unknown):

In the sunrise birth chart, Mercury rules the Sun and the ASC.  Mercury is closely opposed to a Neptune/Uranus conjunction which could be symbolic of a certain accident proneness, perhaps due to Neptunian factors such as carelessness or altered awareness.

If we look at the solar return of this chart for 2014 at the birthplace, we see the following:

taveras SR

The solar return of the sunrise birth chart is quite striking because it has Mars, Pluto and Uranus on the angles in a T-square formation.  This is a clear symbol of risk of injury or accident during 2014, especially when the charts are superimposed:

Note the almost perfect square between natal and solar return Uranus, the planet of sudden and unexpected accidents.  Note also how the natal Mercury opposite Neptune/Uranus participates in the solar return T-square involving Mars, Pluto and Uranus on the angles.

As usual, the astrological symbolism is impressively descriptive of the dramatic events of this young man’s life.
