Saturday, December 20, 2008, 05:16 AM - ForecastsOn December 18, 2008, Chile experienced a 6.3 quake, a decent magnitude quake, but if one is not following earquakes, then it wouldn't mean very much. However, years ago, after reading Diana Rosenberg's awesome story on the Lisbon quake in the 1700s, I learned that many quakes have a connection to a quake on the other side of the world. The quakes would occur within a short time, perhaps a few days of each other. If push comes to shove when observing the plates moving, then it makes sense that displacement in one part of the world affects the other side of the world.
Today, December 20, 2008, Japan experienced a 6.5 quake. In Chile,
the aftershocks continued on December 19th sending 7 more tremors or shocks of 4.2 to 5.9 magnitude. That is a whole lot of shaking! It follows that Japan may have aftershocks as well.
Chile is a location that has an earthquake climate (weather term). It is a location that is noted for the highest magnitude quake, a 9.6 back in 1960 ever recorded. The tsunami quake event in Banda Aceh a few years ago may have equaled or topped it however.
The quake in Chile was predictable using long range weather techniques. In an extensive study of earthquakes since the summer of 2008, a prepared forecast included the week of December 12, 2008, a full Moon period, for the time of a more than average earthquake experience. The next period, December 19th, a quarter Moon would also carry the signature of more tremors or aftershocks.
The study is ongoing and one accurate forecast is good, but consistency is better. It would be a hoot! to be able to crack Mother Nature's code.
Saturday, December 6, 2008, 09:30 AM - ForecastsHISTORICAL HURRICANE OF INDEPENDENCE
The general information found in the internet is about a storm that formed August 29, 1775 and moved off September 9, 1775 and had affected from the Outer Banks up to Newfoundland. Entries from historical files reveal that Norfolk, VA lost many ships and there were many deaths associated with the storm.
A new Moon chart for August 26, 1775, 0:03:47 am LMT in Norfolk, VA reveals a new Moon at the 4th house cusp, a house that covers about one half of the weather. The new Moon was applying to a square to Uranus, the planet of disruption and extreme changes in temperature. Inside the 4th house is Neptune which provides peculiar weather from mists to floods. Neptune is square to the local ascendant, Gemini. Gemini and its ruling planet Mercury control the winds. Mercury rules both the 1st and 4th house cusps giving about 75% of the forecast. The Moon applies to the local 4th cusp, then to a conjunction with Neptune – all of these facts from the chart easily describe and add up to what was to become the Hurricane of Independence.
While the hurricane doesn’t relate to the 2008 winter, it does show violent weather at the time of the American Revolution. Tony Williams has just published (August 2008) a book with the title, Hurricane of Independence: The Untold Story of the Deadly Storm at the Deciding Moment of the American Revolution. Is it mere coincidence that his book review is on BOOKTV at the very moment I am writing this blog?
Williams writes that the storm is the 8th deadliest Atlantic hurricane of all time, killing more than 4,000 people. All this in an era where hurricanes were viewed as omens from God. Though the storm was devastating along the east coast up through New Foundland, the revolution continued and America grew to be a great power, a super power.
We are a young country compared to much of the western world and to Asia and the young make mistakes. The current crises of our finances is evidence that lessons are to be learned and indeed they will be learned and many will suffer while learning. How long will it take to learn the lessons.
Some assure that it will be a matter of less than a year, yet the astrology of the coming years has a very different approach, one that will take until 2015-17 to reach any stabilization. The pockets of greed and the mismanagement of the taxpayer’s monies will take a long time to unravel and regroup.
The crises, the changes which so many wanted are in play. The dominoes began to fall with Lehman Brothers collapsing or was it Enron and those kinds of gangs? Well, the time has come to explore what it is like to have an outer planet that tends to transform what it touches looked at with more respect.
Pluto, you say! A planet so small and so far away, how could that possibly transform anything.
If you study astrology (western tropical style) then you would be able to answer the question.
For many years prior to the war for independence, in the early 1700s, Pluto entered the zodiac sign of Capricorn and brought a change to the culture and the seeds of revolution were planted. More of that story can be found here http://schillerinstitute.com/fid_02-06/ ... e_rev.html
Some years later, there came the opening square between Uranus and Pluto and you know the rest of the story. What is truly significant is that there were seven – seven exact hits with the opening square. Even more significant is that history may repeat itself in its agony of recession when we, around the globe, but especially in the USA experience the same seven – seven hits from Uranus and Pluto beginning in 2009 and last for many years. The rest of the story with dates and timeline in found in the article here: http://weathersage.com/articles/index.htm The title is Radical and Intense, the New World Order.

Saturday, December 6, 2008, 08:26 AMIn the northern hemisphere winter 2008, in the USA, the weather indications are very explicit. The keywords describe tropical weather for the west coast which could be warm, rainy events. Chaotic and strong highs and low pressure systems for the middle of the country and a brutal scenario for the east coast.
None of the weather descriptions are appealing but they simply identify more of the changes that are coming our way, not because the new presidency offers change or the global warming ideas, but because it is a fated time for enormous change globally. The USA plays a big role in the changes but loses more of its ranking along the way. Instead of thinking of what interesting times in which we live, I think the following is more appropriate:
From the Bible, Ecclesiastes III (King James Version):
3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Thursday, November 27, 2008, 10:00 AM - ForecastsThe new Moon in Sagittarius is applying in about two hours. I wake up to CNN news of a terrorist attack in Mumbai, India. Immediately I look to where Pluto is located and found that the planet had migrated from the last degree of Sagittarius to zero degrees of Capricorn, Saturn's sign to also not return to Sagittarius during our lifetimes.
The attack is a horror show for those people who were Americans or British subjects. The cowardly attacks began at the dark of the Moon. Could it be the last vestiges of the holy war that has been raging so very identified with Pluto in Sagittarius? Let it be so I beg.
What can Pluto now in Saturn's sign Capricorn bring to the daily table?
As a Capricorn rising individual with Saturn square to my ascendant, I deal with Capricorn and Saturn issues all the time. Reality has been a theme in my life as far back as I can remember. It is a tough theme, demanding, clear, reality-ridden and ambitious. As a person well past middle-age, I can say that I am grateful for the disciplined life I've led - a happy life.
Can the rest of humanity deal with the realities we will experience under Pluto in Capricorn? There may not be a choice for those who have reveled in the excesses of Pluto in Sagittarius. The denial of the pleasures the God-like Jupitarians have allowed may come crashing down with the patriarchal new order of regulation, control, authority and punishment which severe Saturn will impose.
I'm reminded of a scene out of the movie Dr. Zhivago when the war was over and the kindly doctor returned home to his mansion only to find many families living there and his own family relegated to one room. A rather rude awakening of how things had 'changed'. How will life be in our new and changing world?
During the Russian Revolution during the time of World War I, Pluto had just entered the opposite (Cardinal!) sign of Cancer. Neptune was in the opposite sign of Leo and Uranus was in Aquarius. Saturn at the time was in the same cardinal sign Cancer, a double rude awakening to a new way to live. Cardinal signs are required to take action, to initiate and move on. The cardinal sign of Capricorn is the highest of the four cardinal signs and I think has more power than the earlier signs. Can you feel it...I think you can.
Thanks for reading random thoughts on the approach to the New Moon at 5:49 degrees Sagittarius - celebrate while you can.
Wednesday, November 12, 2008, 08:04 PMThe election seemed so tame, so non issues, so smooth a path. It was a long process, one that seemed never to end from the ads, the polls, the media reporting every nuance in elevated expression. Is it possible that there is so much news that even the broadcasters are speaking in speed speak, something like speed reading? Do me a favor and click on the mute button when certain financial reporters are talking and just watch their lips move - it is more like animation than really human. Some will speak so fast and some with such dramatic intensity that it hurts to continue watching - maybe that answers the questions I ask in the beginning. The election day seemed so tame, so non issues....
How can an inexperienced president elect handle all the change he has promised? Only time will tell us if any one person will be able to convert the non convertible.
I think the general public was numbed by two years of campaigning for a job that may last only 4 years. What could possibly be gained...especially when it doesn't pay that much compared to the billions that have been bilked from the American public?
Would it be possible to begin thinking that there is a missing link between what has happened to our economy, our lifestyle, our way of living (as an ordinary American)? How could it possibly get to this point where the inevitable outcome is so negative? How could all the great minds in our USA government over the past 20 years not see the path that has led us to the despair that is beginning to settle in to our psyches?
You may be asking why there is no astrology in this message. Well, here it comes. Last week I posted an article on the main website that reminds us astrologers about the upcoming planetary energies that will tear up any vestiges of normalcy that remain. How does this affect YOU? Study your own chart with great diligence because these energies will affect us all. How and where will you be affected by the 'real' change that is about to run us over like a violent tidal wave?
Where’s the tidal wave? It is embedded in the opening square of Uranus and Pluto. This is revolutionary energy, an energy that brings people to the point of no return, where change
is so violent that sides are taken and the revolt begins. The seeds of revolt were planted in the original conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in the 1960s.
It will take years to actually build to a point of revolt, but in actuality the inklings of pain and loss are being recognized and the reality of what has happened begins to appear as early as only one year from now, no matter what actually happens in this one year on the approach. The full explanation of the approaching square is found in an article titled Radical and Intense, The New World Order. Take some time to look through the timing of the seven – yes, seven – exact squares of Uranus and Pluto and think about it. Survival suits are needed, but we can do it; we are the home of the brave and the land of the free.
That’s all for tonight – I’m rambling on with a full Moon in Taurus square Neptune. Maybe it’s my imagination and maybe not.
