Dragon – ancient symbol of electricity and lightning
The instances of lightning and thunderstorm activity, reported over parts of Marathwada and Vidarbha earlier this week, is not a common occurring event in March, said officials at India Meteorological Department (IMD), Pune, on Friday. Lightning strikes along with hailstorm reported on March 15 over Marathwada followed by similar incident over Vidarbha, claimed lives of at least six people and damaged standing crops over this region. Though weather experts hesitated from terming it as an unusual event, experts, however, said that records of past instances show that such activity rarely occurred in March, which is when there is seasonal transition.
The unusual lightning strikes took place just after the Full Moon of March 12. A chart for the Moon phase drawn for Aurangabad in Marathwada has the Jupiter-Zeus-Uranus-Pluto T-square straddling the horizon and IC. Richard Tarnas links Uranus-Pluto with “the unleashing of the elemental forces of nature”. Moreover, on the Ascendant are stars of Draco, the dragon and Corvus, the raven. Among the influence of these stars, Diana Rosenberg includes “lightning and electrical events” .
