We are using a reported time of the accident of “just after 9 PM” set to 9:02 EDT.  What stands out to us is the very nearly exact TriSeptile aspect of the Moon to its North Node: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 TriSeptiles

Other characteristics are in play as well.  Pluto in 2nd house tells us that this is an event that likely involves a large amount of “other peoples money.”  (Insurance; lawsuits)  Saturn rising and in the 12th suggests difficulties.  But, again, the Moon TriSeptile its North Node (Fate or Karma) is most noteworthy.  We also note precise TriSeptiles between Neptune on one side and Jupiter / Juno (which are essentially conjunct in Leo) on the other side. Also interesting are the 5th order harmonics, and we see two patterns composed of those that resemble the “T-Square” that occurs with 4th order harmonics (squares and oppositions): Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 5th order harmonics

We think that, curiously, this event made lead to certain important innovations in transportation safety.  One of these triangular patterns is part of a larger Quintile Kite in play that we have discussed elsewhere: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Quintile Kite

The Hard Rectangle discussed on the May 15th post, involving Mars Opposite Saturn, is already in play here, and we think a major contributor to this even.  (But, again, we think that the Lunar Triseptile was the precipitating aspect.)

Note that this pattern includes (1) the rising Saturn / setting Mars and (2) the 2nd house Pluto / 8th house Hygeia.  As we have said before, we think this pattern is dangerous.


2013 Full Moon (Algol Squares: Taurus / Scorpio)

The event obviously tied to this full moon (typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda) occurred BEFORE the culmination of this most malefic of FM’s.  We provide the chart, here, set in first in Tacloban (we note the Moon at MC and the Sun at the IC; the IC is the location of a “grave” and the FM culminates close to midnight local time) and then Plano.  We also note that this was the FM following a Mercury retrograde, and it occurs during a period of difficulty discussed in an earlier post.  We also note a sextile, a tight one, between Pluto (death & rebirth) and Chiron (healing, lessons learned) at this time.

If your personal belief system supports such a notion, this would be a good time to have a ceremony, perhaps just lighting a candle, to honor and remember the dead.

Earthquakes in Mexico (2012)

While briefly reviewing the email from GrandTrines readers, and conducting some other brief research, I came across a link from Jude Cowell’s Stars Over WashingtonNeptune Cafe on 2012.  If you are interested in the 2012 predictions, then you might want to read that.

In that piece, the authors (Neptune Cafe) claimed that (based on their reading of a popular book by Jenkins) May 20, 2012 is an important date, and the authors (of Neptune Cafe) stated that “we could suggest that Mexico City will be destroyed by a violent earthquake.”

Well, Mexico City is alive (but possibly not well due to the crime waves of recent years).  And, we point out here that Jenkins is a target of skeptics.  Further, we do not adopt a “doomsday” point of view of 2012 on this blog although we do believe that a huge societal transformation has been in progress at least since World War II and probably since the American Revolution.  Even most skeptics would agree with that.  Unlike skeptics, however, we believe this transformation is part of a cosmic calendar rather than “mere chance.”  And, to adopt a trite expression, we believe “the best is yet to come.”

However, the following is worthy of note: (1) a magnitude 7.6 earthquake shook Mexico City at the time of the Vernal Equinox of 2012 and (2) a smaller 5.4 earthquake shook the city again at the time of the Autumnal Equinox of 2012.  (In case that link breaks, see here or here.)

Could we see a similar event again at the Winter’s Solstice of 2012?

The Promethean New Moon of 2012

The Promethean New Moon of 2012

This New Moon is as Uranian as they come.  With the midpoint of the New Moon precisely located between Retrograde Mercury (overdue events, running late, and sometime accidents) and Uranus (aka Prometheus, the bringer of light, discoveries, and sometimes ‘accidents’), how can any NM be more Uranian?

An extremely cursory (brief) search of the internet yielded plenty of names for Full Moons but none for the new ones.

This New Moon deserves its own special name: the Promethean Moon of 2012.

Here is the basic chart of the New Moon of March 22nd of 2012:

Aspect Grid

Looking at that NM chart may not show the power that will present itself on March 22nd of 2012.  So, if you can read aspects, consider the Aspect Grid (shown above).  (And, if you cannot, just consider that this grid is composed almost entirely of two symbols: conjunction symbols and trine symbols.)


Each conjunction is a CONCENTRATION OF ENERGY.  Here, it is in Aries (energy, vitality, violence, & war), and involves Uranus, Mercury (retrograde), and the Sun/Moon as a New Moon.  The conjunctions, in the Aspect Grid, are the circles with the lines sticking out of them.  This many of them together does not happen very often.  And, the little triangles mean that the effects of any event at this time tends to be very long lasting.  AND, this new moon is only two days after the Spring Equinox of 2012.

March 22nd

March 22nd is associated with a few interesting historical events:  the Jamestown massacre of 1622, the British Parliament passes the Stamp Act (setting in motion the American Revolution), Intel ships the first Pentium chips and (in 2009) Mount Redoubt (a volcano) begins erupting.  It is a good day to be the Promethean New Moon.

United States Map

The United States map is particularly interesting, since this Promethean New Moon rises off the coast of earthquake prone California.  We may not see the quake at the time of the NM, but do not be surprised if we see one, a really significant one, between the time of the Vernal Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox.  Why such a large range?  The answer is that the range is so large because of a number of other interesting events, particularly the Summer Solstice of this year (which is tied to ANOTHER New Moon).

With the Promethean Moon on the Descendant in the Middle East, we can expect an “active” spring in that region.

Sun-Mars-Saturn Yod of March 23rd

Consider the following chart (with a Sun-Mars-Saturn Yod).  (Note that it is not JUST the Sun aspecting Mars & Saturn, nearby Uranus & Retrograde Mercury are really part of that pattern, too.)

For those of you familiar with the uncertainty of Yods, this looks interesting so soon after the New Moon.  One more map, this time of the Yod.  Note that the Uranus line is practically on top of Sacramento / San Francisco.

Am I predicting an Earthquake in California this Spring?  Let’s just say that I do not plan on vacationing there this spring or summer.  One more disturbing note, a similar set of lines is just east of Tokyo at this time.
