The Great Storm Bird
Hurricane Matthew slammed into the southwestern coast of Haiti early Tuesday, unleashing 145 mph winds and torrential rains that threatened to wreak new devastation across a country still reeling from a ruinous earthquake six years ago. The eye of the Category 4 storm made landfall around 7 a.m. Eastern time, near the coastal commune of Les Anglais, the U.S. National Hurricane Center reported. Matthew reached the eastern tip of Cuba — site of the U.S. Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and military prison — Tuesday evening en route to a projected collision with the U.S. East Coast by Thursday. https://goo.gl/rK5Hfl
In mundane astrology it is not unusual to have an event prior to an eclipse or a Moon phase that can be attributed to it. In such cases our common sense linear “cause and effect” principle is turned upside down. Shown here is the chart for the upcoming first quarter Moon at Les Cayes, Haiti close to where the hurricane made landfall. Notice that the Sun-Moon straddle the horizon axis.
Here the Sun is conjunct stars of Corvus, the Raven.
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 governed wind. Records show that they were transited at the 1864 Bay of Bengal cyclone that killed 50,000, the 1881 typhoon that hit Haipong, China, killing thousands; at the Winter Solstice of 1886, the beginning of a terrible North American winter that caused “The Great Die-up”, hundreds of thousands of cattle, buried in blizzards froze to death; at New York city’s record snow of 1947; in 1970 when a huge cyclone hit Ganges delta with winds upto 150 kmph and a 50-ft high sea wave : about 300,000 to 500,000 were killed, thousands more died later of typhoid and cholera; in 1977 when after 4 snowstorms in 2 months, Buffalo, NY was hit by the the 17-hour “Great Blizzard of 77; in 1979 when 3 twisters combined into one giant tornado and hit Wichita Falls; in 1991 when “Tornado Alley” was hit by several twisters some with winds clocking 450 kmph and many others .
Is it a coincidence that at the time Huuricane Matthew makes landfall the same stars of Corvus are on the Ascendant as the Sun just begins to rise?!
