A team of researchers led by The University of Manchester is on the brink of revealing some of the mysteries of turbulence – a force of nature that has chaotic influence on land, sea and air. Millions of air or sea passengers have experienced the anxiety-inducing effects of turbulence – but it still remains poorly understood by scientists. But a breakthrough experiment could help change this. The pioneering study is to be conducted by a team led by Professor Andrei Golov from Manchester’s School of Physics and Astronomy, with Emeritus Professor Joe Vinen, from the University of Birmingham, plus Dr Paul Walmsley and Emeritus Professor Tom Mullin from Manchester.

The New Moon of the current lunar cycle was a solar eclipse in Pisces and was placed in the mundane 8th house at Manchester. The 8th house signifies the loss of elements of life that are no longer fruitful or have served their purpose while Pisces has been referred to as “an era of storms and of wholesale disintegration”. The eclipse is anchored through hard aspect to the Uranus-Jupiter-Pluto T-square that straddles the meridian.
Astrologers connect Uranus Pluto to the breakdown of the old structures. But before new structures can form there is a period of “chaos” or “turbulence”. Chaos is the word given to mean, the void before creation and opens our world to many possibilities, a refresh, a new beginning in so many ways.
Jupiter-Uranus has been linked to breakthroughs in science and here with Jupiter as lord of the 9th house  we can see why a university or place of higher learning is involved. The trine from Saturn to Uranus provides the opportunity of discovering how order (Saturn) is born out of chaos (Uranus).
Finally we note that Uranus is conjunct the star Baten Kaitos, in the belly of Cetus, the Sea Monster. In Greek mythology Cetus was the ruler of storms at sea, a perfect symbol for turbulence which is the subject of the research.
