Transiting Uranus conjuncts Sullenberger's North Node in Pisces

Here is the natal birth chart for Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, born Jan 23, 1951, 5:06am in Denison, Texas.

Transiting Uranus was and is conjuncting Chesley (Sully) Sullenberger's North Node in Pisces (at 19 degrees 50 minutes) and he miraculously saves a planeload of people in a water landing. And becomes instantly famous for it. Uranus was actually at 19'44" at the time of the landing, and crossed over his nodes as word of his deed spread. Also, he's a 3 degree Aquarius Sun, and Jupiter is conjuncting his Sun now, and was at exactly 2'23" at the time of the landing. Boy, is he ever experiencing a period of Jupiterian good luck!

Also interesting to note is this was pulled off during a Mercury retrograde when things often don't go right and are fraught with mistakes. But the fact that his own Natal Mercury is Retrograde allows him to overcome those odds.

Below is the chart for the unusual plane landing:

How interesting it is that you can draw a chart for almost any event or person.

Good work on a nice site!

Hi Nancy

Great blog! Did you see that Sullenberger's Jupiter is on the Sabian Symbol of Pisces 10: An Aviator in the Clouds? Life imitating art, eh?
