Astrology of the Alaska quake

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Anchorage, Alaska Friday morning, prompting people living in the city to run out of their offices and hide under their desks until the tremor had passed. Dec. 1
In his book Mundane or National Astrology , H.S. Green observed :
Earthquakes are found to be associated with eclipses and with important planetary conjunctions and oppositions.
We are now in the shadow of a powerful conjunction of Mars and Neptune which will be exact onDec. 7.Astrologers know that aspects that are still forming can be triggered by faster moving planets. Currently the slow moving Uranus and Neptune form a semi-square aspect. On Nov. 30, Venus moved into an exact opposition to Uranus preceded by a sesquisquare to Neptune on Nov. 29. 

Presented here is the chart for the exact Venus-Neptune aspect drawn for Anchorage. Notice that the Mars-Neptune conjunction is on the MC, part of a T-square triggered by the separating Last Quarter Moon.
In ancient mytholo…

Kassandra and the empty Clinton show


Having seen donations to their 'foundation' collapse by 90% since they failed in their bid to regain The White House, The Clintons decided a 13-city paid speaking tour was in order to scrape together some coin. Unfortunately, as the image above shows, the supposed-power-couple's draw is starting to fade as theDaily Mail reports that just 3,300 tickets were sold in the Scotiabank Arena in downtown Toronto, which holds 19,800. Nov. 29

Bill and Hillary Clinton launched their 13-city paid speaking tour in a Canadian hockey arena Tuesday evening, where there were banks of empty seats.On that very day Mercury in retrograde motion reached its conjunction with the Sun. Recall that in October and November Venus and Mercury went through their retrograde cycle.
Venus went retrograde on Oct. 5 at21 Scorpioand direct on Nov. 16 at 25 Libra. She conjoined the Sun…

Trump – Putin meeting at the Last Quarter Moon

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump will have a brief tete-a-tete conversation followed by an hour-long extended meeting at the G20 summit in Argentina, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. The meeting is scheduled for December 1, on the second and the last day of the summit which is due to take place in Buenos Aires.
In much the same way as mundane maps are drawn for the capital of countries, they can also be drawnfor the midpoints between the capitals to better understand how the energies operate between the two countries. Shown here is the map for the Last Quarter Moon at the midpoint between Moscow and Washington DC. Notice that the Moon is significantly placed on the Ascendant. The stars that form the backdrop to the Moon describe the difficulties and opportunities presented to Putin and Trump as they meet in the Last Quarter Moon phase.

The Last Quarter Moon occurs on November 30 UT . The Moon conjoins Thuban of Draco, Alioth of …

Breakthrough at G20 Buenos Aires summit ?

The 2018 G20 Buenos Aires summit will be the 13th meeting of Group of Twenty (G20). It will be held in 2018 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 1.

The G20 summit is taking place as Venus – Uranus form an exact opposition. A chart for the event at Buenos Aires has the opposition forming a Grand Cross that straddles the horizon – a very significant configuration. Readers will recall that we are just coming out of a Venus retrograde cycle. The Venus retrograde process is about redefining our values and matters of the heart and finance. Uranus is opposite the TNP Apollonwhich implies either a breakdown or a breakthrough in trade and business (Apollon) negotiations.

Uranus impels us to break away from the conformity of the past. However, Uranus in its chronic expression can manifest as fear to change, to be spontaneous, or to take radical steps. Uranus has just recently moved into sidereal Aries. It should …

Mars-Neptune and the Kerch Strait standoff

The waters near the Crimean peninsula were the site of a tense standoff between Russian and Ukrainian ships that involved a chase, some gunfire, and fighter jets, followed by strong statements from Moscow and Kiev. At around 7am Moscow time (4am GMT) on Sunday, two artillery boats and a tugboat belonging to the Ukrainian Navy crossed the Russian maritime border in the Black Sea and headed to the Kerch Strait. The Russian officers repeatedly asked the Ukrainian vessels to leave Russia's territorial waters, but they ignored those requests. The ships also entered waters that had been temporarily closed to navigation. Nov. 26

Mars in the sky moves to form a conjunction aspect with Neptune on December 7, 2018. However, even before the exact conjunction, the forming aspect can become significant in a chart for any other planetary event. Shown here is the chart for Mercury station direct on December 7 at Kirch Straits. …

Poison gas attack at Neptune station

At least 50 residents of neighborhoods in Syria's Aleppo have been treated for symptoms of toxic gas poisoning after militants attacked the residential area with gas-filled munitions, Syrian media reported. The Al-Khalidiye and Al Zahraa neighborhoods, as well as Nile Street, were targeted by rocket fire on Saturday evening, Syria's state SANA news agency reported. The munitions used by the rebels were rigged with toxic gas, causing dozens of civilians to suffer from asphyxiation, the agency said. Nov. 25

Retrogrades and stations are particular kinds of planetary transits.Retrograde means “backwards.”Its opposite is direct, which means “forwards.”Station means “stationary.”Astrologers use these words to describe the movements of planets in the sky and to interpret their meaning for those of us here on Earth.
Each year, all the planets from fast-moving Mercury to ponderously-slow Pluto go through periods when they appear to be…

Fuel Protests in Paris

French police used tear gas and a water cannon against protesters in the Champs Elysées, in the center of Paris, as "yellow vest" activists flooded the streets. Originally formed to protest rising fuel prices, the "yellow vest" protesters have evolved into a wider demonstration against President Emmanuel Macron's government in recent weeks. Nov.24

A New Moon is an event that affects the entire globe. However, its specific message for a place is determined by the planets or planetary configurations that aspect the angles.

For Paris the charts of the current New Moon of Nov.6 and the Disseminating Moon phase of Nov. 26 bring the Pluto-Zeus square to the meridian. For Pluto ,Jessica Davidson provides the keywords “violent” and “rage” [1] . Martha Wescott links the TNP Zeus to “fuels” [2] so that we have the following delineation :

On why “accidents” happen

Moirai – The Fates  of Greek mythology

Heavenly Evil, Holy one You whose work is never done, Any visage, any name Cannot cloak your single aim. Death as anybody knows, Feeds the roots of any rose. Crushing agonies alone Melt into the diamond stone Till some earthquakes lets us see Long- imprisoned jewels free.

-Louis Ginsberg

Each person enters the world with a “calling”. The idea comes from Plato’s well known work , the Republic. The soul of each of us is given a unique daimon before we are born and it has selected an image or pattern that we must live on earth.
The birth-chart of a person represents "God's idea" of that person and of the function he should perform within the society in which he is born (his “dharma”). A birth-chart is a formula of potentialities. The one task of the person having this birth-chart is to actualize as fully as possible this set of potentialities within his environment . He can only do this by freeing himself from traditional behavior or patterns whi…

What to expect from the upcoming Full Moon

The Full Moon of November 23 forms a T-square withTNP Admetus – Mars – Jupiter. Given below is an interpretation for the various planet, asteroid and mid-point combination that aspect theFull Moon. Some of these will show up as eventsin our lives so keep your eyes open!
Admetus-Moon You may see people seeking  isolation  as a way of  insulating an emotional system that already feels overwhelmed.  There may be an increase in defenses that result in an  emotional and/or physical kind of hardening or cramping.
Making things better  may require effort and  initiative. Some will feel they  have to break away from the restrictions of others.  This is certainly a time of special opportunities--but they aren't just  handed around on a silver platter. Look out for  rebelliousness against rules and superiors.
Admetus - Jupiter Somethings are worth "hanging in there" to accomplish--sometimesperseverance pays off.Where relevant, you'll also see that (1)legalities and…

Britain's Enemy Is It's Own Ruling Class

As the UK political establishment rips itself to pieces over Brexit, a far greater crisis continues to afflict millions of victims of Tory austerity...A devastating UN report into poverty in the UK provides incontrovertible evidence that the enemy of the British people is the very ruling class that has gone out of its way these past few years to convince them it is Russia.
What (the report) found was evidence of a systematic, wilful, concerted and brutal economic war unleashed by the country's right-wing Tory establishment against the poorest and most vulnerable section of British society – upending the lives of millions of people who were not responsible for the aforementioned financial crash and recession but who have been forced to pay the price. Nov. 21

A Silent Sorrow

Quite often a slow moving configuration meets up with other planets or asteroids.If this configuration becomes significant for an individual either through transits to the radix or through lunar returns then it s likely to manifest as events. From Nov. 5 to about Dec.5 the major Grand Cross involving Uranus-Node-Apollon-Vulcanus –Venus has some new visitors. TNP Vulcanus isconjunct the asteroid Hidalgo and opposite Orpheus. 

The meaning of these elements are as below:
HIDALGO: Standing on principle & saying what's on your mind (but challenging aspects can = secrecy & expedient disclosure). VULCANUS:  feeling forced to associate; compulsion; awareness of invisible power & the power of influence; periods of burn-out alternate with a whatever it takes attitude. ORPHEUS: sense of mourning and loss; grief (for what you don't have-what has gone out of your life what might have been or what was); contact with death. URANUS: sudden events ; friends; breakdowns; breakthroughs VE…

Mercury retrograde: Time for revision of attitude

The prospect for peace - or at least a lasting ceasefire - is advancing rapidly following a surprise weekend proposal by Yemen's Houghis to halt all attacks on Saudi coalition forces. On Sunday the head of Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi Supreme Revolutionary Committee Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, said "We are willing to freeze and stop military operations" — something which now appears to have taken effect, according to a breaking Reuters report. Nov. 19
Theresa May will say the United Kingdom is open to a “different” kind of relationship with Russia following a year of deteriorating relations between the two countries. The British prime minister will use a traditional address at the Lord Mayor’s banquet in the City of London on Monday to say the UK is “ready to respond in kind” if there were signs of increased cooperation from Russia in the interests of internationa…

Italy stands up to the EU

Italy is defying the EU over public spending. But this time, the markets won’t come to Brussels’ aid. That’s going to be a big problem for the EU. Bond yields would soar. The banks would be in trouble. Businesses would be starved of cash, and money would start to flee the country. Pretty soon, the “doom loop” would kick in. With the financial system facing a meltdown, Italy’s “populist” government would back down on its extravagant election promises, tone down its rhetoric, and do what the EU tells it to. That, at least, was the script from Brussels when the Northern League and Five-Star Movement took power in Italy earlier this year. Nov. 18

At the dark of the New Moon a new message or theme begins to germinate. Human beings are then invited to consciously participate in the unfoldment of that theme in the lunar phases that follow. In his blogpost for the current month’s lunar theme entitled Karma & a New Birth in Consciousn…

Mercury retrograde: Chaos at APEC Summit

Washington will not change its pressure tactics against Beijing until it bows to US terms, Vice President Mike Pence said at an APEC summit, where members loudly denounced protectionism and sanctions as threats to global trade. “The US will not change course until China changes its ways,” Pence said Saturday, speaking at an Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) summit in Papua New Guinea, where he touted the “decisive action” taken by the US to address trade imbalance with China.

Mercurywas a major god in Roman religion and mythology, being one of the Dii Consentes within the ancient Roman pantheon. He was the god of financial gain, commerce, eloquence, messages, communication [1].
Mercury turned retrograde [2] November 17. The retro phase tends to bring unforeseen changes and blockages, but the aggravation and frustration that many of us experience during these periods is often due to our ego-fixation. Mercury sets out to…

Stars exert pressure on relationships to graduate

Venus And Mars by Frans Floris

Charts are true. Utterly. With a precision that can stun. The task, then, is to learn and understand the factors and techniques that reveal the truth and to honor serve and embrace the knowledge of Self and the profound gift of life events – Martha Wescott
It's disputed whether there is such a thing as sex addiction, as the BBC's Sangita Myska explained a week ago. But she has interviewed many people whose lives have been severely affected by compulsive sexual behaviour - including one woman who discovered by chance, after 20 years of marriage, that her husband had a secret life. This is an edited transcript of her story. Nov.11

In mundane astrology, the cardinal ingresses of the Sun have a traditional reputation as the most important mundane event. Each cardinal ingress of the Sun oversees a three month period. The Sun entered Libra on Sep. 23. A chart for the event drawn for London is shown here. As alway…

Khmer Rouge verdict

For the first time, two leaders of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia have been convicted of genocide. His deputy Nuon Chea, 92, and head of state Khieu Samphan, 87, faced trial on charges of exterminating Cham Muslim and ethnic Vietnamese communities. This was the first genocide verdict given by the UN-backed tribunal on Pol Pot's brutal 1975-1979 regime. Up to two million people, mostly from the Khmer majority, are believed to have died during those four years. Nov. 16
This November 7, 2018 New Moon conjoins Zubenelgenubi of Libra. Zubenelgenubi is the southern scale of our modern constellation Libra—the scales of justice. It is the karmic seat in the zodiak. It exemplifies the manifestation of the results of our past experience and patterns of growth [1]. It is therefore not surprising that a tribunal is delivering justice to the victims of 20th century’s greatest horror.
Presented here is the chart for the First Quarter Mo…
