This time around, Mars is joining South Node in Gemini sign. Usually this conjunction is taking place once in 19 years. In last 100 years there were only 1 exception from this cycle: 1938/1939. Mars didn’t get South Node in Gemini but only early Cancer and late Taurus.
Looking back in time we see some interesting connections between these conjunctions and accidents/tragic events. As you can see most of these events are taking place just a few days before the exact aspect. For me this aspect seems quite interesting and I will try to do later on a more detailed analysis.
All events description were taken from Wikipedia

In the heavens, a storm of an overwhelming magnitude was forming. Children went to school, people went to work and lives went on as normal until the second worst storm of the 1900’s struck. Tornadoes broke across the heartland with such an intensity and frequency never seen before in the United States. Homes and schools destroyed. Loved ones lost.
