There was a thin film of oil for two nautical miles along the Kamarajar Port after an LPG tanker and an oil and chemical tanker collided within the port limits in Ennore early Saturday (Jan.28) morning. Kamarajar Port chairman MA Bhaskarachar said the LPG vessel, BW Maple, Isle of Man flagship, collided with the Indian vessel MT Kancheepuram, an oil and chemical tanker at the outskirts of the port in Ennore at 4 am. The incident happened about two nautical miles outside the harbour. http://www.newindianexpress.com/cities/chennai/2017/jan/29/oil-spill-across-kamarajar-port-after-ships-collide-off-ennore-port-1564634.html
Eclipses continue to create events well past the date of their occurrence. A horoscope for the last solar eclipse of September 1, 2016 drawn for Chennai (Madras), India has it placed in the mundane 9th house which rules shipping . The eclipse forms a T-square with Saturn-Neptune – a combination that has been linked to maritime disasters including oil spills
In general, many industrial disasters, incl. major oil spills, and/or maritime disasters occurred when slow moving transiting planets formed tense aspects among themselves and/or with lunar nodes (e.g., Exxon Valdez oil spill on March 24, 1989 occurred when Saturn and Neptune were 1 degree apart in Capricorn, with Uranus also in Capricorn 7-8 degrees away).
But why on Jan 28? Well if we progress the eclipse chart to Jan. 28, the eclipse along with its Saturn-Neptune aligns with the meridian on that date thereby triggering it into manifestation.
