Astro-meteorology of 'Monster' storm Debbie

Mercury flying through clouds

A cyclone carrying winds of up to 263km/h (163 mph) has battered popular holiday islands as it moves towards the coast of Queensland, Australia. More than 25,000 people were urged to evacuate ahead of Cyclone Debbie, a category four storm now predicted to reach the mainland about 14:00 local time (04:00 GMT) on Tuesday. About 23,000 homes have already lost power, and there are reports of damage. Authorities said it would be the area's worst storm since Cyclone Yasi in 2011. Australia's Bureau of Meteorology said the storm's "very destructive core" had already reached the Whitsunday Islands.  March 28

Readers would be aware that in the last few days Mercury has been  triggering the t-square between Jupiter/Uranus and Pluto.  Richard Tarnas links Uranus-Pluto with “the unleashing of the elemental forces of nature”. Also recall that the planet Mercury rules the winds and is often  pictured as travelling with wings on his feet. So the stage was set for major hurricane activity. A chart drawn for Mercury-Uranus conjunction at Queensland, Australia, has it placed on the  4th house cusp, which in astro-meteorology is linked to the weather. In addition the chart has the T straddling the meridian confirming that it was going to shake up the place violently.

A further confirmation comes from the New Moon chart which places the same T-square on the meridian.


Cyclone Debbie was upgraded overnight to a category four storm, just one rung below the most dangerous wind speed level. The cyclone started making landfall around 2pm local time (0300 GMT).

Here is the chart for the landfall at Bowen. Notice the “culprit” Uranus-Pluto-Jupiter T-square on the meridian. The cyclone  seems to have timed itself perfectly!
