Japan Earthquake

A 7.4 magnitude earthquake off Japan's Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures has sparked tsunami waves of more than 1m. The quake struck at about 06:00 local time (21:00 GMT Monday), the Japan Meteorological Agency said. Residents were told to seek higher ground immediately, with warnings of waves of up to 3m. There were reports of minor injuries and damage. Nov. 21

Earthquakes are found to be associated with eclipses and with important planetary conjunctions and oppositions. An eclipse is always liable to cause seismic disturbances especially if it falls very close to the line of the horizon or of the meridian [1].  In addition, research has established that eclipses can influence events well after their actual occurrence.  H.S. Green mentions that eclipse, ingress and other mundane charts when progressed to  the date of an event that they influence will bring important configurations to the angles.

Shown here is the chart for the Appulse Lunar Eclipse of August 18 drawn for Tokyo. Notice that  (a) the eclipse luminaries are placed significantly on the horizon axis  (b) Saturn-Mars are conjunct the MC and form the apex of a T-square.  If we now progress the eclipse chart to November 21, the date of the quake, the T-square once again aligns with the meridian thereby triggering it.

Here Mars and Saturn are conjunct the star Antares about which Diana Rosenberg [2][3]writes:

Antares also arouses great fires within the earth: this was Saturn at the great Port Royal, Jamaica earthquake of 1692: huge fissures swallowed multitudes, seismic waves drowned about 1600; Neptune at Sept, 1811 solar eclipse that preceded the massive New Madrid, MO earthquake series of 1811-12; Uranus at the stupendous eruption of Tambora in 1815; Mars when Surtsey, a new volcanic island appeared off Iceland in 1963; Neptune at the 1976 8.5 Táng Shan earthquake in China that killed 250,000; Venus at both the 1989 San Francisco and the 1995 Kobe earthquake; Mercury and Venus at the great Sumatra-Andaman undersea earthquake of December 26, 2004 killing between 200,000 to 310,000.

Finally, we notice that the chart for the Last Quarter Moon has the Moon on the IC in hard aspect to Pluto, a planet well known for its connection to earthquakes.
