The Great Storm Bird
Parts of the UK are facing travel disruption as Storm Doris arrives with winds reaching 94mph.There are severe weather warnings for some of northern England, East Anglia, north Wales and the Midlands, and there is snow in higher areas in Scotland. Flights have been cancelled at Heathrow Airport and commuters have been warned to expect road and rail delays. About 7,000 homes and businesses are without power in Northern Ireland due to trees falling onto overhead lines. Snow is predicted to reach 20 to 30cm (8-12in) high in parts of Scotland, while a 94mph gust of wind was recorded in Capel Curig, north-west Wales. Feb 23 http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-39060095
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 solar eclipse drawn for Capel Curig where the highest wind speed was recorded. Notice that the Mars-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto straddles the meridian. Richard Tarnas associates Uranus-Pluto with “the unleashing of the elemental forces of nature in various senses including volcanoes and earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes, tsunamis and floods, etc.”
But more specifically on IC of the chart are 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 .
