Im-dugud-khu, “The Great Storm Bird”
An enormous thunderstorm struck Moscow Wednesday night, with heavy rain and flooding. The storm began shortly before midnight. Russia's Emergencies Ministry issued a thunderstorm warning, reporting wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour. Dozens of flights were suspended at city airports, including 15 at Sheremetyevo International Airport. July 14 http://sputniknews.com/russia/20160714/1042926728/moscow-thunderstorm.html
The incident occurred just a day after the Moon completed its First Quarter phase. A chart for the Moon phase at Moscow forming a skewed Grand Cross with Uranus-Pluto and TNP Zeus aligned with the horizon axis. Uranus-Pluto is linked with the “sudden release of elemental forces”.
Here the TNP Zeus is conjunct stars of Corvus. These stars were part of an archaic Chaldean lunar mansion whose patron god was Im-dugud-khu, “The Great Storm Bird” or “Storm Bird of the Evil Wind” and China’s Celestial Chariot T’ien-Tche which governed wind. Diana Rosenberg links this area with “high winds, lightning and electrical events”. Also Neptune on the MC is placed among the stars of Aquarius, the Water Pourer. This is an area related to the rainy season of the ancient year, so that many of its stars are associated with floods. Hence a lightning storm that deposited huge quantities of rain in Moscow is quite understandable.
