Monster storm in US and its symbolic meaning

Batten the hatches and circle the wagons, East Coast. Violent thunderstorms are expected to pass from the Midwest to wreak havoc from Savannah, Georgia to Buffalo, New York. The storm system has already claimed 15 lives across the United States, but the danger has not fully passed.

Our current New Moon of April 26 is a Supermoon. 

A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system. The term supermoon is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology. Astrologer Richard Nolle who coined the term supermoon claims that a supermoon would cause an increase in severe weather and earthquakes.

The first SuperMoon of 2017 is the April 26 new moon - the first of three consecutive new SuperMoons, in fact…Regulars already know what to expect of any SuperMoon; namely a surge in extreme tides and storms and notable seismic events (M5+ earthquakes and sizable volcanic eruptions). For the first Stealth SuperMoon of 2017 (the new moon on April 26), these phenomena will come on strong from April 23 to May 1.

The supermoon [6ta] is conjunct the star Hamal, alpha Aries in the Ram’s Horn. For the Arabs it was Al Sharatain. Arabs said Al Sharatain brought “whirlwinds”. Planets transited these stars when in 1991, a massive cyclone with 145 mph winds hit Bangladesh killing approx 139,000 people and 500,000 animals; in 1955 a record 110 tornadoes in 3 days hit 6 states – a monstrous twister hit Blackwell, OK killing 19, then obliterated Udall, KS, killing 82; in 1969 Category 5 Hurricane hit the Gulf Coast leaving 400 dead and 400,000 homeless; in 1999 tornadoes hit Oklahoma an Kansas, a mile-wide F-5 monster that tore through Oklahoma City area, leaving a 3-mile-wide path of destruction, killing 45, clocked winds of 318 mph, the highest ever recorded and several others.

While supermoons are worldwide in their scope, those areas where they appear on the angles or where they place important configurations on the angles are the ones most likely affected. Here the supermoon chart at Savannah, Georgia places Mars on the Ascendant square the nodal axis.

What is a “Moon Wobble”.
Moon Wobbles were discovered in the 1930's, when research by astrologer Carl Payne Tobey (1902-1980), the original editor of Astrology Magazine, revealed that disasters occur in cycles associated with the conjunction (0°), opposition (180°) and square (90°) from the Sun to the Moon's Node. These powerful contacts occur when the Sun and the Node are in the same sign, or the opposing sign, or when the Sun is in a square aspect to the nodal axis. During Moon Wobble the instability factor is high, resulting in more accidents, fires, plane crashes, freak accidents, floods, feats of nature, bizarre weather patterns, earthquakes, tornadoes, violence, Terrorism, riots, and political and personal upheavals. These Cycles bring suppressed energies in people and Mother Nature to the surface, erupting and disrupting.

Although not yet fully researched, something akin to this happens when Mars squares the nodal axis as it is doing now. Mars [3ge] is in an area that is part of the Hyades cluster, known for its stormy nature.  Gamma (γ) Taurus, Prima Hyadum, is the chief star of the Hyades; six stars situated on the face of the Bull.

We take a small digression here and look at the world political scenario. The US and North Korea began the new month staring off over the Korean Peninsula, with both sides giving few clues as to what their next move might be. Tensions have rapidly escalated in this  highly volatile region since US President Donald Trump declared he would be prepared to act "unilaterally" against Pyongyang in early April.

For Hamal, alpha Aries – the butting head of the Ram and other stars in the area of the New Moon, Diana Rosenberg writes:

The traditional description of these stars’ effects are for the most part harsh; passion, urgency and primal animal energy characterize people here. Proud, ambitious, willful and militant, they like to test the edges. Even though they may be animated by idealism, it tends to take second place to a single-minded personal vision and headlong rush towards success. Hamal has been linked to the ability to rise to influential positions, but with a danger of disgrace or ruin, usually caused by impatience, lack of diplomacy and an inability or unwillingness to refine their attitudes and actions: the Ram, fixed earth Tauras and Cetus combine to create an “aggressive fixity” making some dictatorial, arrogant, cruel and violent. If people here refine their attitudes and eschew blunt force, there is great transformative power in these stars. Issues here include dictatorial aggression and force vs patience, diplomacy and peace.

So we can see how the supermoon is brewing a different kind of “storm” in the US-North Korea relations. Physical events in the natural world are often symbolic of what is also happening at deeper levels.  If we make the New Moon chart for the midpoint between Washington DC and Pyongyang [38N57; 155W39] once again we find Mars on the angles square the nodal axis. Incidentally, Mars on the IC is amidst stars of the Chinese asterism Py. Chinese astrologers warned that when Py trembled or dimmed, troops would be put on alert; thus it was called “The Announcer of the Invasion at the Border”.
