Pisces Australis, the Southern Fish
More than 200 whales stranded on a remote beach in New Zealand on Saturday have refloated themselves and returned to sea. But conservation officials have warned that they could still turn back to the beach at Farewell Spit, South Island. Earlier, volunteers managed to refloat some 100 of the more than 400 pilot whales which beached on Thursday. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-38942763
It is common knowledge that the moon is primarily responsible for the rising and falling of ocean tides. The stranding of the whales and their subsequent refloating can be attributed directly to the Full Moon eclipse on Saturday, 11th February. A chart for the eclipse at Farewell Spit, South Island has the luminaries aligned with the meridian. Notice that the eclipse highlights the Jupiter-Uranus opposition about which we gave the following keyphrases in our last post:
Jupiter - Uranus – a lucky break, new opportunity, to experience a release from tension and to feel optimistic or fortunate due to a change or sudden event.
But that is not all. On the MC conjunct the Sun are the stars mu and tau Piscis Austrinus – the Southern Fish identifying the recipients of the good fortune! Pisces Australis, or Piscis Aistrinus, is the Southern Fish, and not to be confused with the two fishes of Pisces. The Southern Fish is depicted with its mouth open, drinking the water that is being poured from the jar of Aquarius .
