On November 30 1954, Ann Hodges, a 20th Century Double Aquarius, became the only known person to survive a direct meteor hit. She was napping on her couch after lunch when the giant rock shot through and whammed into her hip, leaving a massive bruise but otherwise no injuries. Thinking it was “one of the neighbors kids”, she stormed outside to confront the little buggers but instead found people gawping at what had apparently been a fire ball.
This was, BTW, at the time of Aries Rising, Mars and Pluto in opposition and Uranus conjunct Jupiter, in close orb of Ms Hodges Moon. Feisty astrology but still, having a rock from outer space hit you while napping is a bit much to expect, for even a Uranus transit. The meteor was named after her but immediately Hodges landlady claimed possession of it and an unpleasant, very public dispute ensued.
These days, of course, a double Aquarius surviving a direct hit from a meteor while napping on the couch could spin the episode into a gigantic social media following, a meteor product line and perhaps even meteor futures. But then? Ann Hodges wound up hating the rock and considered it cursed.
These days it is kept safely behind glass, just in case. Thoughts?
