One of the world's largest and most valuable pearls was left forgotten under a bed for more than 10 years, its owner told CNN. The enormous pearl, weighing 34 kilograms (75 lbs), was originally found inside a giant clam, said Puerto Princesa City Tourism Officer, Aileen Cynthia Amurao. She said her relatives discovered it and up until now have been using it as a good luck charm. "He'd almost forgotten everything about the pearl until he was moving out, and he remembered he had something under his bed," she said. On August 20, Amurao posted photos of the monstrous pearl to Facebook, asking for gemologists who might be able to verify the pearl's weight and value. http://edition.cnn.com/2016/08/24/asia/largest-pearl-philippines-amurao/index.html
The cardinal ingresses of the Sun have a traditional reputation as important mundane events. Of these the Capricorn Ingress has a special place and is considered by many to be the annual chart. Shown here is the Capricorn Ingress chart for Puerto Princesa. Notice Mars-Uranus aligned with the horizon as part of a complex involving the Saturn-Neptune square. Mars [23li] is part of the Indian lunar mansion Chitra. The following extract explains the meaning of Chitra and its connection to pearls:
Glittering,Brilliant,Bright all are the key words that Chitra Nakshatra conveys.In a way this nakshatra conveys more of its inherent qualities through its name than any other asterism. Its alternative symbol is a ‘pearl’. Pearls are formed in an oyster’s moments of irritation, the same way art comes out of the artist’s moments of irritation and depression. Chitra is thus related to the mysterious essence behind creativity, using its clear understanding of the laws of the universe. It has the ability to fashion new, wonderful and delightful things out of seemingly nothing at all.
Neptune [7pi] which makes a hard aspect to Mars is part of the Arabic lunar mansion Sadachbia, from Al Sa'd al Ahbiyah (now called Sadalachbia) which has been interpreted the Lucky Star of Hidden Things or Hiding-places. Dr. Eric Morse adds that it indicates the ability to discover that which is hidden or lost.
If we now progress the Capricorn Ingress chart to August 20, the date of the news, Neptune reaches the IC and the configuration aligns with the meridian and is thereby triggered confirming its role in the surprising discovery!
