Air France flight 447 left Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Sunday, May 31, 2009 at 7 p.m. on its way to Paris, France. At 11:14 p.m. an automatic message was sent reporting that the plane had an electrical system failure and a loss in cabin pressure according to an Associated Press report.
2009 is a tough year for flying. In fact the feng shui Flying Stars for airplanes is particularly bad this year. Although from Feb. 4, 2008 (the start of the new year's feng shui Flying Stars) to June 1, 2008 there were more airplane accidents than over the same period this year, 2009 has had 35% more fatal crashes than last year.
That's because the feng shui Fire Star sits in the Center gua (think center square of a tic-tac-toe symbol) in 2009 and this Star is tied into flying, airplanes and birds.
At the time of the flight there were two other feng shui Stars that were problematic. The first is the Illness Star for the month and the Violence Star for the day. Both of these Stars were in the Center gua with the Fire Star and this triple combo creates fire and electrical disturbances.
There were plenty of other flights that took off and landed perfectly safely May 31 but the difference between those flights and the Air France flight is that flight 447 crossed through a zone of thunderstorms with strong turbulence. The pilot's decision to fly through this zone is what we call Human Luck in feng shui and when you make bad choices during times of bad feng shui it can create disasterous results.
It looks like that's what happened in the case of Air France. My heartfelt prayers go out to all of those on flight 447 and their families.
