China tainted meat scandal

A suspect meat scandal in China engulfed Starbucks and Burger King on Tuesday and spread to Japan where McDonald's said the Chinese supplier accused of selling expired beef and chicken had provided 20 percent of the meat for its chicken nuggets.

Chinese authorities expanded their investigation of the meat supplier, Shanghai company Husi Food Co. A day after Husi's food processing plant in Shanghai was sealed by the China Food and Drug Administration, the agency said Tuesday that inspectors also will look at its facilities and meat sources in five provinces in central, eastern and southern China.

The scandal surrounding Husi Food, which is owned by OSI Group of Aurora, Illinois, has added to a string of safety scares in China over milk, medicines and other goods that have left the public wary of dairies, restaurants and other suppliers. July 22 CBC

The April 15 Total Lunar Eclipse [25li] was conjunct the stars Spica and Arcturus – the Virgin and her Protector – symbolically referring to the helpless masses and those who stand against  corrupt world powers out to exploit the public. The Full Moon of the Lunar Eclipse was also conjunct the asteroids Vesta and  Ceres. Ceres  is commonly linked to food [2] implying that events would show how food related issues would figure in this exploitation. Notice also the Vesta-Ceres-Moon conjunction nesting between Mars and the North Lunar Node, creating one entire energetic directly in opposition to the entire stellium of planets including the Sun-Juno-Eris conjunction and the Mercury-Uranus conjunction [1]. With Juno, an asteroid that is connection with “rights and fairness” [2] or “tallying ($$$ & fairness) in any transaction” opposite Ceres there is an implication that customers may not be getting what they are paying for.

So why did this get triggered on July 22, the date of the news?  Progressing the eclipse chart for Beijing to this date brings Mars and the Grand Cross to the meridian triggering the entire configuration.

Was it possible to predict this event in advance?  The answer is a firm “No”. Fixed star mythology presents an image of the universe that connects the transcendent to the world of everyday experience. It is, therefore, a metaphorical organization of many symbolic images and narratives of the possibilities of human experience. Which one of these experiences will translate into an event cannot be known in advance.
