Coincidence? Not a chance. There are no coincidences.
Chance is a name for law not recognized (The Kybalion).
We all have a time to be born, a block of time to spend on earth, and a time to die. That block of time is stamped on your horoscope at birth, and when it is used up – no if's, no and's, no but's – home you go to the world of spirit. Remember, we are not bodies with a spirit, but rather spirits with a body. When that block of time is up, we just move to another plane of existence.
Mars in the 8th house
Key words for the 8th house in a horoscope include drama, crisis, trauma, and death. Mars there predisposes one to injuries through accidents, cuts, burns, surgery, firearms, and the like. Depending on the aspects it makes, fiery Mars can be constructive or destructive. It tends to be accident prone and in the 8th house of the horoscope, death can come quickly.
Mars in the 8th: Risk takers drawn to danger
Both Walker and Rodas were avid car enthusiasts and both raced cars. In fact, they met at a California race club, where Rodas was driving a Porsche that Walker had previously owned. Before long, the two were racing side by side. People with Mars in the 8th house, like Walker and Rodas, are born risk takers and not apt to back down when challenged. They are magnetically drawn to dangerous areas, as if overpowered by some cruel fate as life pulls them into dangerous circumstances.
Mars in the 8th people, driven by passion and riding on impulse, push themselves beyond their physical limits, burning inside with a desire to achieve high status or amass huge wealth. They often soar in life, as Walker and Rodas did. They can accelerate or slip into cruise control at will, as their excess energy drives them to peaks and valleys, where sometimes they never seem to get tired and do too much, and other times spend too much time sleeping or resting to recuperate.
Accident prone Mars
Mars rules fire, broken bones, bruises, and cuts. According to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, Rodas died of multiple traumatic injuries, and Walker died of the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries in a 100-mph car crash. Both of their bodies were burned beyond recognition.
“Death never comes at the right time, despite what mortals believe. Death always comes like a thief.” ― Christopher Pike, The Last Vampire
Even though Walker and Rodas died in a horrendous car accident involving tremendous speed, there is no pain when we die (or leave the body). Leaving the body at death is as natural as being born. Life continues after biological death. Our memories, personality, perceptions, emotions, and thinking continue without a break.
Though sometimes, people like Walker and Rodas, who die suddenly, can become "stuck" or earthbound for a time because they were not mentally prepared to die. In all cases, prayer truly helps, both on this side and "the other."
