Another Coup in Fiji or Just Another Quake
As the Aries Moon passes over the MidHeaven of the Fiji Independence Chart set for
October 10, 1970, the chief protagonist in this drama Commodore Frank Bainimarama raised the specter of another Coup. This Taurus strategist with Sun-Mars exalted in Capricorn trine is reacting to the current Cardinal Energy. He
rejected concessions offered yesterday (11-30) by the country's elected leader to avert a coup, and delivered a fresh ultimatum to the government to accede to his demands within less than 24 hours or face its ouster.
Revenge Fiji Style
When we start to drill down on the current transits to the Fiji Independence Chart
featured below, things become more obvious. Currently Mercury is applying to an opposition to Fiji's natal Saturn at 21 Taurus brining some serious news stories surrounded by intrigue and revenge (Mercury in Scorpio). It turns out that Frank Bainimarama whose Fixed Cardinal Cross tends to push the envelope, was insturmental in the Fiji Coup of 2000. He got the then-President Ratu Sir Kamisese to resign on May 29, 2000, in what some politicians have since called "a coup within a coup," It turns out that Frank holds a grudge since the interim government reneged in their accord. Remember that Bainimarama declared martial law back in 2000 and then appointing Qarase interim prime minister. Since 2000, the Commodore has taken a high profile role and now with N Node transiting his Pluto and Mars by opposition, he is on the world stage. On July 11, 2006, Bainimarama issued one of his strongest-worded challenges yet to the government, saying that it was forcing the country into the same anarchy as in 2000. In an eight-page statement, he warned that the Military was would take decisive action against any "destabilisers" (This all occured as Node opposed Pluto).
Besides the earthquake of a possible coup to the current Fijian Government led by Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase, this has been a year of tremendous earthquake activity in Fiji Islands area. Lest we forget on 2-26-2006 there was a Magnitude 6.4 - SOUTH OF THE FIJI ISLANDS...plus multiple 4.0 to 5.1 quakes this month.
Of course taking the big picture in the South Pacific, Tonga on May 3, 2006 had a Major Magnitude 7.9 - Temblor along with a bloddy, tumultuous riot in the last two weeks with New Zealand troops helping keep the peace.
