Boeing and Apple - flying lower

Five reported incidents this week affecting the Boeing Dreamliner have led to the U.S. government ordering a wide-ranging review of the design and manufacture of the passenger jet, the 787 Dreamliner. There were cracks in the cockpit window while on a domestic flight; another had an oil leak; a computer problem on another Dreamliner affected its brakes; and a fire. Not surprisingly Boeing stocks slumped.

 

This is the model that promised to revolutionise flying. It entered into commercial service in 2011, more than three years late, because of extensive development problems.

 

The Boeing Dreamliner rollout – 8 July 2007 3.15pm Everett, WA, US – happened with a Saturn opposition Neptune (only a month after the launch of the ill-fated UK submarine HMS Astute which had similarly negative stars). There was also not just a retrograde Mercury, but also Jupiter Pluto Neptune and Uranus all retro as well.

 

That roll out chart is stressed through 2013/14 with a frustrating tr Pluto trine Mars and a setback tr Saturn square MC in the autumn. As well as Mars moving by Solar Arc to exactly square the MC this year which is a collision of sorts – not necessarily a plane crash just bringing things to a juddering halt at one point in about 6 months time. Tho’ there’ll also be some lucky breaks from tr Uranus trine Jupiter from mid 2013 onwards for a year.

 

 

 

The first flight took off from Everett, Washington at 10.27 am on 15 Dec 2009 (wiki) which was just before a New Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Venus. Though more pointedly there was a Mars opposition Jupiter Neptune which suggests huge over confidence. There was a similar Mars in Leo opposition Neptune when the failed Russian Mars probe Phobos Grunt took off. So not an auspicious launch date.

Exact at the moment tr Neptune is square the First Flight Midheaven – so undermining ambitions and status; and later this year tr Neptune squares the Solar Arc MC which is the same.

 

There’ll be continuing worries for the next two years as the natal Mars moves by Solar Direction to close the opposition to Jupiter Neptune to exact.

 

This is mirrored in the relationship chart between Boeing, 15 July 1916, and the Dreamliner suggesting that there will be very considerable challenges this year and continuing panics till mid decade.

 

Apple has lost its coveted top place as the world's most valuable publicly traded company after its shares fell. It has been hit by fears over its future growth, despite record profits.

 

As I indicated last February there was a strong possibility after a sharp rise there would be a fall off since the Apple Nasdaq chart, 12 Dec 1980 10 am NY, has a Jupiter Saturn conjunction which is being buffeted by the transiting Pluto square transiting Uranus. Jupiter leads so aspects to it bring the highs and then aspects to Saturn following do the reverse. That will continue to be the pattern through 2013but with marginally less confidence than before.

 

This chart indicates a major upheaval and forced turnaround come 2014 with a good deal of aggravation not only internally but affecting the public as well.

 

The Apple Inc chart, 1 April 1976, shows much the same, with insecurity especially this March, heavy pressures and sudden changes through this year and a need for a total re-think under heavy pressure come 2014/2015.
