Notes on a Pandemic or Massive Hysteria?

This Aporkcalypse isn't like the 1918 Pandemic

Just yesterday on April 29th with Moon in defensive Cancer square both Mars and Pallas (asteroid dealing with political
strategy) the World Health Organization raised the swine flu pandemic alert level to phase 5. As the media and other scare and doom websites want you to note that this is just one step below the highest level. The decision came as the number of countries with confirmed cases rises to at least 10.
WHO raises swine flu alert level -- EU Commission | Reuters
Another severe emotional reaction yesterday was the news that Egyptian authorities began slaughtering the roughly 300,000 pigs in their country Wednesday. This action reflects the continuing Venus square Pluto (forced cooperation by authorities) and was supposedly a precaution against swine flu even though no cases have been reported in Egypt. Of course this infuriated farmers who resisted the move and demanded compensation.

When we look at the definition of a pandemic, we see the origins are from Greek words pan all + demos people. Thus a pandemic is an epidemic of infectious disease that spreads through populations across a large region; for instance a continent, or even worldwide. Hysteria on the other hand, in its colloquial use, describes a state of mind, one of unmanageable fear or emotional excesses.

Neptune is a planet which destroys boundaries and personifies the unrealistic, utopian ideals along with collective hysterical tendencies. With upcoming Jupiter conjunction on May 27th a massive expansion of these qualities. Now that Chiron that maverick, trickster and wounded healer is in on the mix there has been increasing fears of a might epidemic encompassing the globe literally limitless in scope. The phrase mass hysteria to describe mass public near-panic reactions. It is commonly applied to the waves of popular medical problems that "everyone gets" in response to news articles.

There has also been lots of chatter on the increasing seriousness of our current H1N1 swine flu being compared to the
1918 flu pandemic (commonly referred to as the Spanish flu). The deadly Spanish influenza was a tru pandemic that spread to nearly every part of the world. estimated that anywhere from 20 to 100 million people were killed worldwide,[3] or the approximate equivalent of one third of the population of Europe,
The Chart Below for the first discovery of the Spanish flu in the United States the disease was first observed at Fort Riley, Kansas, United States, on March 4, 1918.
(As I will show below our current swine flu outbreak is not even close to the deadly Spanish influenza disaster)

Chiron/Pluto in the Mix with 1918 Spanish Flu
A striking aspect to the chart above that Mercury-Hygeia (asteroid of health)-Sun-Juno-Chiron are together in Pisces ruled by Neptune and Jupiter. Chiron @ 28 degrees Pisces leads this confluence of Piscean planets and is part of a deadly, mutable cross opposing Mars which was retrograde @ 27 Virgo and TSQ the Moon's Nodes in Sagittarius and Gemini also at 28 degrees. Also Saturn and Neptune were traveling together in the early degrees of Leo putting them into continuing difficult aspects to inner planets in Taurus and eventually Saturn direct was square Uranus retrograde around September 1918.
Those Pisces planets and asteroids were moving toward a conjunction with Chiron then translated the light and moved into Aries while Chiron followed suit around April 1st 1918 and moved in to Aries. Chiron in Aries was applying to a square with Pluto which at that time was around 3 degrees Cancer (cardinal energies mean swift action).
Tracking this horrible epidemic right after World War I we find that Mars (always a trigger when it comes to vital energy-health) moving into Cardinal Libra on June 24th and TSQ both Chiron and Pluto!
Even today with this breaking epidemic, we have Venus-Mars in orb of a square to Pluto now in Capricorn putting more power into the the hands of the elite, government then the time of the Spanish influenza. The 1918-1920 pandemic had outer planets continually reusing the serious energies from outer planets like Pluto and Uranus (similar to what is coming in 2010) except that Chiron's influence was felt in a more dynamic, active way back in 1918. Today's wounded healer is more involved in social justice and redress of grievances with Chiron in Aquarius till March 2011.

Swine Flu vintage 2009: Hysteria and oppression prevails over real danger...

Back to 2009, looking at the chart for April 24th's New Moon in Taurus set for Mexico City (largest city on the planet) and ground zero for this contagious nightmare - we see
Saturn (lockdown-constriction) right at Mid-Heaven. Saturn now retrograde and ready to turn direct on May 15th is @ 15 Virgo at the top of the chart opposing Juno in Pisces.
This opposition tells of obstacles in relationships, feelings of oppression and frustration. Uranus the planet of the unexpected and rebellion is in the 4th house at an angle near Venus-Mars both in early Aries intercepted - note that Uranus once in power it can be totalitarian and autocratic. The Mexican government immediately began to impose draconian restrictions on the people. The 4th house of this chart below signifies the foundation or base of the society plus it reflects the people versus the government.
My prediction is that as we continue to approach the May 27th Jupiter-Neptune conjunction and Uranus mutual reception, many of the magnified fears will dissolve as less and less cases are found.
In fact today, Mexico is starting to see a decline in a new flu cases.
Mexico's Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova on Thursday evening said there are early signs of a decline in suspected new cases of a deadly influenza virus that has claimed 12 lives. with Neptune leading the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Chiron, the biggest danger is mass hysteria and collective fears not the new "souped up" Influenza A (H1N1) strain. Martial law is a greater danger then multiple mortality.

Mars-Venus in Aries as Women Reach for Power in Iceland and Beyond

Last night's sunset sky show was more than just a beautiful conjunction of the Moon, Mercury and Pleiades and symbolized a heralding of change on the planet. Pleiades which has been intimately connected with ancient and indigenous cultures from the Mayan to Dyaks of Borneo to the Berbers of North Africa and to the early Arabic nations. They all believed the "seven sisters" were a central hub of the universe and the seat of immortality. According to the Maya, our solar system rotates around Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiades, in a 26,000 year period; (Note that this last part, about our solar system rotating around Alcyone has been proven incorrect).
In Greek mythology, the Pleiades, meaning the doves, was the name given to the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione, daughter of Oceanus (one of the Titans). Their names were Electra, Maya, Taygete, Alcyone, Celaeno, Sterope and Merope.

Several of the most prominent male Olympian gods (including Zeus, Poseidon, and Ares) engaged in affairs with the seven heavenly sisters. These relationships resulted in the birth of children.

1. Maia, eldest of the seven Pleiades, was mother of Hermes by Zeus and Iris by Thaumas.
2. Electra was mother of Dardanus and Iasion by Zeus.
3. Taygete was mother of Lacedaemon, also by Zeus.
4. Alcyone was mother of Hyrieus by Poseidon.
5. Celaeno was mother of Lycus and Eurypylus by Poseidon.
6. Sterope (also Asterope) was mother of Oenomaus by Ares.
7. Merope, youngest of the seven Pleiades, was wooed by Orion. In other mythic contexts she married Sisyphus and, becoming mortal, faded away. She bore to Sisyphus several sons.

All of the Pleiades except Merope consorted with gods.
After Atlas was forced to carry the heavens on his shoulders, Orion began to pursue all of the Pleiades, and Zeus transformed them first into doves, and then into stars to comfort their father. The constellation of Orion is said to still pursue them across the night sky.

Now that I have set the stage let's look back a couple of months.
Around the time of the annular solar eclipse - January 26, 2009, with strong Aquarian planetary lineup - you may have seen news of the world getting it's first gay leader in Iceland.
Johanna Sigurdardottir, a former air hostess, was sworn in as Iceland's Prime Minister right after the collapse of Iceland's grossly over-leveraged economy .

Now in April with our current Taurus new moon @ 5 degrees square the Solar eclipse @ 6 degrees Aquarius, women are beginning to step into power. why now? Is it because the patriarchy is collapsing along with the economy. Yes of course but more importantly both Mars and Venus (ingress on April 24th) are the warrior sign Aries. Venus turned retrograde on March 6th and finally stationed direct on April 17th. issues dealing with both women and feminine rights surfaced from Afghanistan to Iowa. My feeling is that many other signs are starting to surface that women via a new
matriarchal presence is coming to our planet.

Women Reach for Power in Iceland - BusinessWeek

A Sustainable Economy is Needed
From the article above: "At Audur, there's a simple recipe for success. "We've brought greater female values into the financial world," says Halla. The company isn't interested in investments that quickly generate high yields. Instead, they focus on sustainable investments in projects that make as much sense socially and environmentally as they do for the investors themselves. The women call their business maxim "emotional capital," or "profit with principles." But is that a recipe that can be enough to get Iceland out of its current mess?"

Somthing Big is Going to Happen Soon New Moon in Taurus Part Two

Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter Transit USA Moon for Pandemia or Hysteria

Update: April 24th. WHO calls emergency meeting on swine flu

GENEVA, April 24 (Reuters) - The World Health Organisation said on Friday it was calling an emergency committee to advise whether outbreaks of swine flu in humans in the United States and Mexico constituted an international public health threat.

Notice how the chart below set for 17 Sagittarius impacts the famous US Sibley July 4, 1776 chart. The US foundation Moon @ 27 Aquarius 09 is being hit hard by a triple conjunction of Neptune @ 26 , Chiron @ 25 and Jupiter @ 23 - the hysteria brought by these
swine flu epidemics is just one of the major events especially with Chiron (disease-wounds that need healing) meets Neptune right on the US Moon (emotions felt by the collective) on the 3rd. house of communications/media all expanded by Jupiter belief systems. This is a recipe for mass disaster.

Taurus and Capricorn Ground We Hope!
Even though we can feel a strong undercurrent of action (Moon-Mars and soon Venus in Aries) in hard aspect to that power player Pluto who prefers taking a hostage, these historic times are touching the practical and earthiness of Sun/Taurus trine Pluto plus Mercury sextile Uranus in Neptune ruled Pisces to keep the spectre of exuberant idealims alive. Just today from a real limiting Capricornian and Taurean wave of practicality is that California has decided to limit greenhouse gas emissions of vehicle fuels which corresponds to the Aquarian stellium (Saturn ruled) transiting the 3rd house of the US Sibley Chart - see below how this effects all forms of transportation.
The Air Resources Board adopts a landmark regulation expected to slash gasoline consumption by 25% and encourage development of low-carbon fuel sources for cars and trucks.

I have written enough about earth changes over the last two years but I have to add with Mars-Aries applying to a trine with big bad Pluto in Cardinal Earth and Venus to join the mix by moving into Aries expect natural disasters like the fires in SC or more quakes in California to add to the current man made explosions in Southern California. big explosion at an oil refinery rattled nearby homes in Paramount.
The blast was at Paramount Petroleum just before 10 p.m., when a pair of furnaces about 100 feet high was relit.
Before you cry that Luke Thomas has cried "wolf" too many times dig in and watch
cause I have to say that cardinal Mars-Pluto in difficult aspects always mean seismic shifts.
April 22,23,24 2009 Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego Earthquake Forecast
where a 5.4 to 6.9 Magnitude is coming.

So by tomorrow's New Moon in Taurus set for 11:22 PM EDT in the city of dark, Mordor type
doom, the tension is build ing in DC. and the rest of the country with expectation lading thinking. Even the Mayan Day Sign for April 24, 2009: Akbal - the Night speaks of dreams, visions, inspiration born of darkness, sub-conscious fears and a place of potential - literally the "Bringer of the Dawn" (from the title of a Marciniak Book -Bringers of the Dawn: Teachings from the Pleiadians published back on Dec. 1, 1992 when Venus-Neptune-Uranus-Pallas were all in Capricorn opposing Mars in Cancer. Another period of hard aspects for cardinal signs similar to our current Aries-Capricorn TSQ to Pallas in Cancer.

Notice how the chart above set for 17 Sagittarius impacts the famous US Sibley July 4, 1776 chart. The US foundation Moon @ 27 Aquarius 09 is being hit hard by a triple conjunction of Neptune @ 26 , Chiron @ 25 and Jupiter @ 23 - We are in for historic days of idealism, talk of seccesion, expansive change in the rules of the game and a wounded healer who teaches us to be intuitive and not listen to the lies of corporate media.
Just talking about how the CIA, NSA and other alphabet organizations tortured the detained or was it abducted (Pluto square Mars) for military operations, has lots of
people just plain pissed off. The more dirty and despicable these acts are painted the more outrage will be generated along with arguments.
Fox News' Shepard Smith: "We don't F%@king Torture!"

Looking at the chart we see the Aquarian stellium crossing the US Chart's third house:
3rd House in mundane astrology corresponds to all forms of transportation and communications, ruling roads, railways, telephones, schools, newspapers, television, freedom of speech. Since 3rd is the native house for Gemini opposing Sagittarius (9th_ and the US has Mars in Gemini @ 21 degrees currently in a wide TSQ to transiting Uranus-Saturn. We best expect lots of action dealing with
treaties signed by the country, neighboring nations, diplomatic messages, rumors, foreign affairs (with the 9th House).

This is a fascinating lunation with Sun-Moon at 5 degrees Taurus - reflecting the Sabian symbol of the bridge across the deep gorge of cultures and religions from the East to the West. North to South, we see that Obama has finally made overtures to South America and seemingly ready to forgive and forget? Lets skip to another more modern Sabian has more amusing bit of allegorical symbolism: "A cat is being petted by its owner, growing tired of this he jumps down from her lap and begins to
play with a string. "

With Taurus in the mix this description of amusement of the foibles of human nature begins to make sense when we see that many of the leaders have painted themselves in a corner like Chavez, who thought that oil would stay high priced and are no vulnerable.
In terms of relationships especially now that Venus and Mars have recently met and are starting a new cycle of love together with Venus never quite catching up with Mars in May - we are seeing how intellectual curiosity is goading us to try new practical solutions with many scientific succes. Note that Mercury in the sign of the Sacred Bull or the Heirophant is sextile Uranus in mutable Pisces at 12:39 AM right after the Moon jumps into venus ruled Taurus.

Redux - Mars-Venus transit US 4th House in the sign of pioneering new ideas, action and war to some degree. The 4th house represents and signifies the land, its values as real estate and agriculture, housing and living conditions. The 4th house Sibley cusp is 0 degrees Aries getting a thorough bashing and powerful thrashing from transiting Pluto now retrogrde. In mundane geo-political astrology, the 4th house is the foundation or base of the society and its traditions. It is a place which reflects nationalism and patriotism, it is the folk-soul of the nation.
Most importantly as we look at the bi-wheel above we see Pluto transiting in the first house for some heady transformatons - we may even see the masks removed by the elite rulers. The 1st house corresponds to the nation and its people, first impressions b y others whether in Europe or Asia. The firs house is the image of the American nation This is the outer persona of it's people - the Sagittarian adventurer or loud mouth outdoorsman. We are seeing a massive change to the image of the US native coming fast like a bungee jumper off a 7 story building.
The collison course we have seen with Pluto transiting the 1st represents the nation or group as a whole, the country and its inhabitants all going thru an involutary makeover. The 1st house correlates often, to its physical condition and representative of its self image or its myths and national characteristics.

Pt. One: Mars-Venus Leads the Way Across the New Moon Bridge

These two days leading up to April 24th and 25th Taurus lunation are filled with action as Mars and Venus finally changes signs from Pisces (refuse or storehouse of the zodiac)
into the new and adolescent sign of Aries.
Starting April 22nd with a Moon occultation of Venus then the Mars ingress a more aggressive, cardinal pace takes over for the subterfuge and hidden recess of oceanic Pisces. Here we have Mars-Venus translating the light from all those Piscean meetings when the high seas were filled with drama. We won't miss the almost daily murder suicide
pact or lone killer thrashing out with the sudden fury of Mars near Uranus or opposing Saturn.

The New Moon itself @ 5 degrees 03 minutes Taurus has a beautiful Sabian: "A bridge being built across a gorge."
This poetic and balanced image tells of proactive ways to literally bridge the chasm that separates so much of huminity struggling to emerge from 5, 125 year Mayan cycle or the 10, 700 year journey from the age of Leo to the coming age of Aquarius.
Things have not been easy even since the last lunation in Aries (March 27th) with both Venus and Pluto stationing retrograde then Venus finally moved forward on Friday. In the meantime Mars has been the trigger with an exact conjuncton to Uranus on April 15th.

The chart below is set for Greenwhich Time @ 3:22 AM with 15 Pisces rising and opposing
Saturn ready to station direct on May 15th in the house of open enemies and also partnerships (7th) The ruler of the Ascendant is Jupiter now moving toward a spiritual confluence with Neptune the modern ruler of Pisces on May 27th.

Despite certain fated or even foreboding aspects about tomorrow's New Moon for the UK setting the rising @ 15 Pisces 16 - In a quiet moment, the inspiration flows.
This ties into Juno in Pisces in the 12th for a karmic, mystical relationship where just an hour before Juno was joining Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter in Aquarius as they crossed the Ascendant adding surpirise, shocking actions and an innovative viewpoint to this chart.
Having Sun-Moon in it's natural 2nd house speaks of singers like Susan Boyle (who wowed the "Idolized" crowd around the world with her voice - Taurus rules the throat.

Let's take a quick look at some of the fixed stars.
HELIACAL RISING STAR is Deneb Algedi the Lawgiver who is constantly seeking the legal, physical or metaphyical laws that govern the world
The HELIACAL SETTING STAR is Regulus the heart (cor leonis) of the constellation Leo, known as the leader of the Four Royal Stars of the ancient Persian monarchy, the Four Guardians of Heaven and Watcher of the East. Even though Regulus is setting there is a certain distinction, honer and obvioius reference to high office (Obama or another leader)
"If the star of the great lion is gloomy the heart of the people will not rejoice."

Other stars to note include the malefic Antares (heart of the Scorpion) on the Nadir with Saturn is Rising orb 00 mins 21 secs -
Black versus white, a life full of the struggle with polarities...
So here we have another one of the four Royal Stars of Persia and the Watcher of the West.
according to Robson: With Saturn: Materialistic, dishonest through circumstances created by environment, religious hypocrisy, many disappointments, loss through quarrels and legal affairs...

Note that another baneful star is adding to this lunation:
Culminating with the Moon rising is Facies from the Constellation of the Archer Known to create heavy emotional experiences steeped in violence or turmoil
Much blamed for accidents and broken limbs and so on. The Latin name is from the verb Facere, to make or do something, and it is often said to portend accidents due to the victim's own careless actions. Naturally, there is a positive side to Facies, it symbolizes well that kind of Sagittarian who goes out to climb mountains, race cars, enter the ski-jump team or the Grand National steeplechase, making it right to the top and no doubt breaking a few bones along the way.

Pegasus Flies as Venus Disappears during Meteor Shower

The Influence of Pegasus, Meteor Showers and the Moon on Mars & Venues.

Whether we are in San Francisco or on the other side of the country in the land of Mordor - Washington, DC influences from the great constellation Pegasus will be felt.
In Greek mythology, Pegasus is the winged horse that was fathered by Poseidon with Medusa. When her head was cut of by the Greek hero Perseus, the horse sprang forth from her pregnant body. Only by using a magical bridle was Bellerophon able to capture the incredible Pegasus. The gods then gave him Pegasus for killing the monster Chimera but when he attempted to mount the horse it threw him off and rose to the heavens, where it became a constellation (north of the ecliptic).

As Venus (now a morning star) recently stationed direct (April 17th) will come together with Mars (@ 4:19 PM PDT) in oceanic, emotional Pisces this is both a time of romance and idealism steeped in fantasy.
The HELIACAL RISING STAR for both locations is Fomalhaut, from the Arabic Fum al Hut, the Fish's Mouth, found in the constellation Piscis Austrinus or the Southern Fish. Fomalhaut is one of the Royal Stars of Persia and corresponds to one of the archangelic stars. Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South. Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South.

On Wednesday morning, April 22nd, Earth will pass through a stream of comet dust, giving rise to the annual Lyrid meteor shower. At the same time, the crescent Moon and Venus will converge for a close encounter in the eastern sky. Viewed from some parts of the world, the Moon will pass directly in front of Venus, causing Venus to vanish.
This event occurs at 6:29 AM PDT Wednesday less then 24 hours after both Mars and Venus meet.

The NASA article goes on to say:
The Moon-Venus conjunction is pure coincidence. It has nothing to do with the Lyrid display other than insurance. Even if the shower fizzles, the sight of a 9% crescent Moon located so close to brilliant Venus is guaranteed to make your day.

NASA - Venus Disappears during Meteor Shower

Back to the energies of Pegasus first with the West Coast where the star Alpheratz is rising with Jupiter in a tight orb 01 mins 01 secs -
This is signified by teh explorer, inventor and/or reformer...
"The Great Square of Pegasus" is prominent and it consists of four stars; Alpheratz, Algenib, Markab and Scheat.
In DC we find the star Markab culminating with the Moon is Culminating orb 01 mins 45 secs - To be emotionally consistent, to be unchanging in one's devotion.
Note that Markab is is Arabs' word for a Saddle, Ship, or Vehicle,— anything ridden upon,— that was early applied to this star; but they also designated it as Matn al Faras, the Horse's Withers or Shoulder,
Note that in the chart set for Washington, DC @ 7:19 PM, Markab also is setting as Mars is Setting orb 00 mins 20 secs - To be honest, and act in an open-handed way.
Per Ebertin, Mercury-Mars nature. Tradition has it that, in conjunction with Mars, Uranus or Saturn, this will bring dangers from fire, weapons or explosions. Tied up with propitious stellar bodies, Markeb is said to influence above all the spiritual and mental nature,

The Pegasus Syndrome, as exemplified in the legends of Perseus and Bellerophon, is concerned with the innate ability possessed by some people to negotiate difficulties by rising above them, on the one hand, and the danger of overreaching themselves, on the other. Pegasus, by birth, is the child of Medusa and Neptune, symbols of 'wisdom' and 'emotion,' respectively, which shows the dichotomy of his nature. As in the story, Bellerophon attempted to fly to Olympus (overreach his potential). He believed that Pegasus was subject to his will. However, it was Pegasus who made it to Olympus, while Bellerophon was tossed back to earth, lame and reproached by others. It is unwise to take any situation for granted as the 'lesser' person (or, in this case, beast) may be the very one to teach us the much needed lesson in humility
Actually the major action is later in the day when Venus-Mars meet in passionate embrace @ 4:19 PM and then @ 9:38 PM
the Moon translates the light of previous meetings with Uranus and another unexpected encounter occurs.

Vulcan Dominates a New Moon in Taurus

As the current energies of earth and her inhabitants seem to move in waves like the ocean
and the continued bombardment of gamma rays catalyzes even more intensity - the elemental forces and beings are waking up. Just the last couple days earthquake activity
in the African region seems to be getting stronger. Much of this is occurring in the Mauritius - Mid Indian Ridge territory. With the recent ingress of Mercury into Taurus, our minds have lately been on the earth and geological terms especially with Ceres in Virgo direct, along with Saturn currently retrograde.

Chaitén sits above the Peru-Chile subduction zone. In this convergent boundary, the Nazca Plate is being subducted under the South American tectonic plate.

La Cumbre Volcano on Isla Fernandina in the Galapagos Islands erupted. On April 11, 2009, authorities at the Galapagos National Park reported that the volcano was releasing both lava flows and volcanic ash plumes.

The Perfect Cardinal Storm Begins with Fire in the Hole

While we edge closer to The midpoint of the Sixth DAY of the Galactic Underworld
May 9-11, 2009 which coincides with a Scorpio Full Moon, we pass thru one of the most active and explosive
time periods marked by a Taurus New Moon on April 25th @ 3:22 AM GMT.
Plumes of smoke are visible in many parts of the world from 21+ volcanoes erupting world wide including Redbout in Alaska and Fernandina in the Galapagos
New Activity/Unrest: | Ebeko, Paramushir Island | Fernandina, Galápagos Islands | Kliuchevskoi, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Llaima, Central Chile | Miyake-jima, Izu Islands (Japan) | Redoubt, Southwestern Alaska | Sakura-jima, Kyushu
Ongoing Activity: | Arenal, Costa Rica | Batu Tara, Komba Island (Indonesia) | Chaitén, Southern Chile | Colima, México | Dukono, Halmahera | Karymsky, Eastern Kamchatka | Kilauea, Hawaii (USA) | Koryaksky, Eastern Kamchatka | Rabaul, New Britain | Shiveluch, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Soufrière Hills, Montserrat | Suwanose-jima, Ryukyu Islands (Japan) | Tungurahua, Ecuador

Global Volcanism Program | Volcanic Activity Reports | SI / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report |

In the below chart Pisces is rising with Uranus-Venus-Mars {Intercepted in fiery Aries} all in the first
house applying to a dangerous, explosive square to Pluto on top of the wheel in the 10th.
Aside from the obvious earth changes with he esoteric ruler of the Taurus lunation, Vulcan ready to blow his stack
displays of outright power, obsession and efforts toward total re-adjustment/transformation are driving all geo-political events. The old ways are collapsing as most evidenced by the economy - Venus ruled Sun-Mon is agressive
and ready for new iterations.

One of the most obvious manifestations of Vulcan, the god of beneficial and hindering fire, including the fire of volcanoes is living up to his other names. Other monickers being Mulciber ("smelter") in Roman mythology and Sethlans in Etruscan mythology - things are running at a furious pace reminiscent of the work of Greek smith-god Hephaestus, and he became associated like his Greek counterpart with the constructive use of fire in metalworking.

Solar technology is also featured as we move toward the rebirth celebrations.
We are also in a period of time of great hope, idealism and aspirations for the universal benefits of scientific discoveries with Jupiter (all puffed out) riding the intuitive wave of Aquarius meeting Neptune also in the sign of thw waterbearer on May 27th...
Simply put Ideologies and beliefs are seen to motivate people toward the exploration of new territories. Calleman relates the start of this time May 9-11th 2009 to the same period in 1962 but in the Planetary Underworld. "With the same reasoning of making parallels between different Underworlds... look at our current situation as we approach the midpoint of the sixth DAY of the Galactic Underworld on May 11, 2009 (10 Ahau) and its continuation into its second half until November 7, 2009. The shift date is a parallel to the year 1962 (which was the midpoint of the sixth DAY of the Planetary Underworld) and the second half to the time period 1962-1972. We may then want to recall what happened during this time period. 1962 was the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a shift point from which the Cold War would start to thaw and the year later the Beatles phenomenon exploded."

Creating the sustainable economy.
As the old order of cancerous economic expansion self destructs and dies, something new arises almost like one of different craters and calderas building up from within the earth. the world today is very different from 1962 and if nothing else it is dominated by another Underworld, where economic growth is constrained. Yet, it seems to me that this kind of an experimental attitude is exactly what is needed at the present time. The primary challenge is a grass roots creation of a more sustainable economy.

Maybe I better quit while I am ahead.

Full Moon in Libra: As Electrical Engineer expects entire global electrical system to collapse!,

Even though this has been a Full Moon filled with promise and
hope reflected by the Sun being in positive sextile (60 degree aspect) to Jupiter and yet the future around 2012 seems to also coincide with some large solar events whether a CME
hits earth. Or has popularly believed a polar shift on the Sun? or is this maybe related to the galactic alignment, which many are talking about, that might occur in 2012? (Sun rules Aries and now with Venus retrograde in Aries stimulated by today's Mercury ingress into Taurus (security and venus ruled) plus upcoming sextile to Neptune as over the top scenarios abound. When we examine CME's for instance in typical Aquarian fashion we find they are an ejection of material from the solar corona, usually observed with a white-light coronagraph.

The premise based on recent posting on Project Camelot posting about being contacted by the wife of an electrical engineer who has been officially briefed about a serious major threat to infrastructure in a few years' time.

Electrical Engineer expects entire global electrical system to collapse!, page 1

Talk of power failures and nature's ferocity (Pluto SQ Venus) and (Mars-Uranus) are mimicking some of nature's events as we find out tonight a tornado has touched down in downtown Mena.
This story of a twister touching down in Mena, Arkansas and heading toward other cities in the Gulf is making the media rounds. Except that this tornado Warned storm was also approaching Shreveport, LA only 16 miles from Shreveport.

Speaking of outages or in this case man made problems when the Vandals Cut the Cables and left the handles in Silicon Valley. So the pipes wouldn't work... Tens of thousands of residents in Silicon Valley woke up to find themselves without Internet access or landline or wireless phone service after vandals apparently severed fiber optic cables - possible sabotage from unions? according to the police. Officials suspect that saboteurs opened manhole covers in San Jose and San Carlos, south of San Francisco, in the early morning hours and cut multiple fiber optic cables belonging to AT&T and Sprint. (Pluto signifies underground activities and a trine to Mercury is
going to affects massive communication systems).
The other thing about today's Full Moon in Libra (9:56 AM CDT) is that it came in like a freight train or a hurricane. The Moon in a sign of high winds: Libra was applying to a Jupiter-Neptune trine as stories have been spun that seem catalyzed by the upcoming Jupiter-Neptune convergence.
Talk about a Neptunian-Jupiter enhanced fantasy as we see both Neptune and Uranus approaching exact mutual reception at 26 degrees in either sign the same time that Uranus
is in that degree (May 27th @ 9:12 PM UT) or 1:12 PM PDT)
This occurs right around the time that Neptune stations retrograde and Venus is applying ot a meeting with Mars both in the Solar Sign of Aries!
As we look toward another Project Camelot contributor Henry Deacon - a Lawrence Livermore
Physicist - a new picture arises of China and US working together to stage a war.

Yet when we start to use our new Mercury in Taurus mental faculties we might find that there are really no The so-called 'Controllers'

It's important to realize that the 'Controllers' - the Illuminati, the Committee of the Majority, and/or various alien groups - are not really in control.

Deacon reports, credibly in our view, that not only is there no overarching mastermind group successfully running the planet, but that at agency, military and black project level there are many factions, vying for control, with many different agendas between them.
We have seen from the transiting Pluto stationing and in hard aspect to retrograde Venus, that when anyone faction tries a take over they are found out.

Some groups may be doing their best to help the situation, within their particular context. Deacon includes the secret space program in these, which he says is a kind of a lifeboat program for Planet Earth if it really does hit the cosmic iceberg.

Dan Burisch has also spoken of and written about an 'Ark', which was partially constructed on Earth and then transported to the Moon in case it should be needed. He has described graphically that at Area 51 there were interesting problems lifting and moving this extremely heavy object.

("Now, this scientist who contacted us wasn’t talking about people getting fried by solar flares. What he was saying is that there is going to be something here that’s going to influence our electronics all over the world.")

References to an 1859 CME Event (the first recorded)
"The event of 1859 was before the electronic era, of course, and this was when the Earth was basically bombarded by massive fireworks display from the sun which created auroral displays as far south as the Equator in both hemispheres. It was incredibly spectacular and everyone saw wonderful sunsets for a little while. But it didn’t cause any damage because this was before the time of chips and circuits. "

Project Camelot records of predictions of this impending disaster

We believe this information is credible and important but the contact may now have been lost. Therefore we are publishing what we have - with many questions unanswered.

This is the first message Project Camelot received:

27 March

Hello B & K

My husband is an electrical engineer for a national power company. He has just been told that they are expecting an event in the next 3-4 years that will render every transformer in the world useless. They are desperately trying to find a solution to the problem. If they don't, the entire global electrical system will go down. I know this fits in with some of your research. Have you heard about this?

In conclusion it is obvious that everything we do here on Planet Earth is dependent on or linked to the sun. If the sun starts misbehaving, then none of us can escape the effects.
Also now that we have reached a Solar Minimum (or bottom) Solar Cycle 24 is looming larger then ever. Officially this Solar Cycle began on 4 January, 2008 - heading gradually and unstoppably towards its predicted maximum in... 2012.
The power of the next 11 year maximum Solar cycle has been described in the last three years as huge Solar storms that will totally zap earth.

After today's Full Moon opposing Solar ruled Aries we are just beginning to understand all the many relationships in our ever changing solar system. The current cycle of Venus as a morning star which will be turning direct in Aries on April 17th involves an impending chase of Venus with Mars in the warrior sign at the end of May. Then in June the Yin and Yang - active-passive energies finally meet in fixed Taurus in June then to square Jupiter and Neptune the first week of July.

Libra Full Moon - A Train Wreck Over the Mountain

After March 26th's primal, Aries New Moon of power plays and underground eruptions of force, we look on Thursday's Libra full moon with trepadation. Italy is still quaking under piles of rocks and rubble, Good Friday looms as the senseless string of violence personified by Mars in Pisces know for lashing out hysterically doesn't seem to end especially with today's tragic events in Alabama. Despite a positive, generous and renewing Sun Sextile Jupiter (exact on APril 10th) Mars will still be wreaking havoc along with a close Pluto Square to emotional Venus all month with takeovers planned by the elite. Afer the most mention of the New World Order in context
with the G20 meetings.

The chart above set for Washington DC starts out ominously with 04 Cancer 53 minutes rising with a Sabian: An automobile wrecked by a train! Along with Pallas the Goddess of Wisdom & Strategy newly ingressed in Cancer
more prone to hysteria on the Ascendant opposing Pluto so that the language of feelings, food, security is being collobered by that Dark Lord Pluto. From a mundane perspective in an Ingress, Lunation or Eclipse chart stressful aspects to Pluto produce volcanoes, earthquakes, oil spills, fires, war, mudslide, avalanches, erosion and anything which involves widespread death and destruction.

Pallas in Cancer is a defender of home and family using Patriotism in a negative way with deep unconscious blockages creating mental obsessions or fixations. transformation or renewal of the mind is the cure. Pluto is also square Venus, adding debt and worry as US earnings season kicks off the mix plus Pluto is opposing the Ascendant and contraparallel Vesta in Anaretic Degree, sometimes also called the Karmic Degree, 29 degrees Taurus. This degree of Taurus places emphasis on ruler Venus and a focus on one's power for personal gain and a heavy dose of sexualtiy. Sabian for 29 Taurus 51: A peacock parading on an ancient lawn. So this symbol of social display and criticism is in the 11th house intercepted with Mercury newly arrived at 00 Taurus for different slower mental orientation especially with all the tragedies and unexpected events piling up. Today Venus mirrored relationship issues in PRICEVILLE, Ala. — A man shot and killed his estranged wife, their teenage daughter and two other relatives in rural north Alabama before returning to his home in a nearby town and killing himself the day before their divorce trial... Public planets the chart set for Washington DC are all within orb in this busy 10th: Mars-Uranus-Venus (both retrograde and void of course) at 00 Aries 33 (Sabian: A Woman has risen out of the ocean and a seal embracing her). Thus MidHeaven at 13 Pisces is opposing Saturn sitting on the IC for more contstrictions in the housing market where ruler of the 4th house the Moon sits indecisively but supported by Jupiter in the 8th to expand more losses with international finance.
With ruler the Moon representing the people with issues around agriculture, farming (HR 875 passage?) crops, land, houses, real estate, mines and yes freaky weather.
Moon opposing Aries Sun ruled by Mars tells of desperate attempts to keep peace with open enemies symbolized by Pluto in the 7th where foreign relations, treaties and/or disputes lay bare.

Quake Predictions and a Gamma-ray Burst in Real-time

The River - Eridanus and Sirius

The constellation Eridanus traditionally represents the river Padus or Po into which Phaeton fell. (More detail - “The Padus (i.e. the Po), a river in Italy flowing from the Alpine heights, arises from three sources. The name of one of these sources is Padus, which, having spread out like a lake, sends the river from its lap. It is fed by melting snows at the rising of the Dog Star [Sirius, in Canis Major, representing the hot dog days of summer which causes ice and snow to melt on mountains and flow into rivers], and with the addition of thirty other streams it empties into the Adriatic Sea near Ravenna.” [The Etymologies of Isidore of Seville, 7th century AD, p.282.]

After the rash of earthquakes especially the Magnitude 6.3 - that devastated CENTRAL ITALY,more people are looking at ways to predict these shakers.
The Gamma Ray Burst Chart above set for the end of a long gamma ray burst in the Constellation Eridanus
The starting tremor for the Tragic L'Aquila Quakes was the biggest which
hit the fortress town of L'Aquila @ 3:32 AM CEDT -2.00, So here we have 10 strong shakers
including the strongest first hit which was 100 km (60 miles) NE of ROME, Italy.
At that time of the Quake (see chart below) we find Saturn (per traditional astrology: the Lord of Karma and death.) opposing Mars (the fiery God of anger). Again in the chart below set for: L'Aquila @ 3:32 AM CEDT -2.00, we find the Saturn, the ruler of the rising sign Capricorn was in the 8th house. As I have stated in my Mundane Primer: "This house also rules the death rate, deaths from natural disaster, suicides, state funerals, interest rates, pensions and social security and advisors to the heads of state." Regarding both the adisors and heads of state - The G8 Summit in L'Aquila Winds Up With the Chair's Summary
In both charts , Mr. Obsessive, Pluto is in separating TSQ to most notably Venus, the Goddess of Beauty and Love Relationships and Pallas newly arrived in another feminine sign Cancer sometimes highly reactive. So Venus sat in the dark, hidden 12th and was lodging thoughts of destruction with a powerful Cardinal, rising at 28 degrees. A hint as to rumblings and tremors is that those two major malefics: Saturn (ruler of chart) in opposition to Mars in Pisces per medieval astrology, these two are considered a most volatile duo relating in earth signs to the shifting of fault signs.

Another whole side to this The Sabian Symbol/Image for 29 degrees Cap. : A woman reading teas leaves.
The buzz from this morning was that a scientist little known in earthquake circles made a bold prediction of a destructive earthquake in the Abruzzo region of central Italy.
Even though he met with deaf ears and was rebuffed, this physicist Giampaolo Giuliani went so far as to tell the mayor of a town there that it would strike within the next 24 hours.

Take a look at the Chart Below set for April 6th. 2009 @ 3:32 AM CEDT - 2.00 in L'Aquilla (The Eagle) Italy

One of the newer methods of forecasting involves the analysis of the Gamma-ray Burst Real-time Sky Map
Gamma-ray Burst Real-time Sky Map
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most luminous electromagnetic events occurring in the universe since the Big Bang. They are flashes of gamma rays emanating from seemingly random places in deep space at random times.

Using the date/time of the burst then 10:28:25 UTC for the chart above translating to a Terrestrial location
in London, UK just to get feeling for the astrological modes/energies.
As we look ahead at more then just seismic reactions.
Mars is at the top of the chart in a continued danger zone applying to Uranus and separating from a close opposition with Saturn. Chiron the wounded or is it wounder healer is contraparallel the Lord of Karma Saturn and move towards a conjunction with Neptune. Even today the string of violent murders is increasing with this afternoon finding: 5 Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide in Alabama
When we deal with Uranian ruled or the planet Uranus, there are always groups,multiple people or even mobs as in Moldova today
But family murders are a lot more complicated and with Venus retrograde and still in orb of a really difficult square to Pluto - relationships gone wrong will play a part.
PRICEVILLE, Ala. — A man shot and killed his estranged wife, their teenage daughter and two other relatives in rural north Alabama before returning to his home in a nearby town and killing himself the day before their divorce trial, authorities said Tuesday.

Let's step back and look at latest burst in detail: Remember this is one of 8 bursts that won't probably have an effect till around
April 15th to April 18th when Mars-Uranus meeting is exact @ 7:24 PM PDT.

NASA's Swift satellite launched in November 2004. It combines a sensitive gamma-ray detector with the ability to point on-board X-ray and optical telescopes towards the direction of a new burst in less than one minute after the burst is detected.

Perhaps most important is the relationship to the Constellation of Eridanus
Mythology and Meaning

The constellation Eridanus traditionally represents the river Padus or Po into which Phaeton fell when slain by Jupiter for having set the world on fire by misguiding the chariot of his father Phoebus. The story of Phaeton's fall into the Eridanus can be read at Theoi Greek Mythology.
More History:
Eridanus, the River, the French, Eridan, the Italian, Eridano, and the German Fluss Eridanus, is divided into the Northern and the Southern Stream; the former winding from the star Rigel of Orion to the paws of Cetus; the latter extending thence southwards, southeast, and finally southwest below the horizon of New York City, 2° beyond the lucida Achernar, near the junction of Phoenix, Tucana, Hydrus, and Horologium. Excepting Achernar, however, it has no star larger than a 3rd-magnitude, although it is the longest constellation in the sky, and Gould catalogues in it 293 naked-eye components.

Myth tells us that amber originated from the tears shed by the Heliades (maybe Cetus) that flowed into the river Eridanus. The tertiary forests of the Baltic sea area contains 90% of the world's amber which is the best amber in the world. This is one certain identification we can make for Eridanus.

According to Isidore the name Eridanus seems to have been an appellation for Phaeton, whose body fell into the Eridanus:

“The Padus (i.e. the Po), a river in Italy flowing from the Alpine heights, arises from three sources. The name of one of these sources is Padus, which, having spread out like a lake, sends the river from its lap. The river Padus is named from this. The Greeks also give it the cognomen Eridanus, from Eridanus the son of the Sun, whom people call Phaeton. After being struck by lightning he fell into this river and died. It is fed by melting snows at the rising of the Dog Star [Sirius, in Canis Major, representing the hot dog days of summer which causes ice and snow to melt on mountains and flow into rivers], and with the addition of thirty other streams it empties into the Adriatic Sea near Ravenna.”

More Violence as Mars Applying Finally Perfects to Oppositon with Saturn

The second major incident of wanton violence occurred less then 24 hours after the BINGHAMTON, N.Y. MASSACRE
where Jiverly Wong, the gunman killed 13 people in a rampage at an immigrant community center.
By now you should now about the infamous Mars-Pisces Opposition to Saturn-Virgo Retrograde aspect which finally perfected today @ 5:55 PM
PDT on the same day that Pluto stationed retrograde.

Gunman 'lying in wait' kills 3 Pittsburgh officers

Gunman Kills 3 Police Officers in Pittsburgh -

In the case of the Binghamton murderer, Jiverly Wong (foreign born-Vietnamese shooter)we find
both Jupiter the ancient ruler of Pisces who struggled with drugs (Pisces) and job loss (Saturn-Virgo) and perhaps blamed his adopted country for his troubles.

The Pittsburgh incident
The incident began around 7 a.m. in the Stanton Heights neighborhood of Pittsburgh, a blue-collar area made up mostly of single-family brick houses, but also ranch houses like the one where Mr. Poplawski lived with his mother, Margaret Poplawski, 41.

Notice today's Pittsburgh Killing chart set for 7:00 AM EDT had 13 Aries 33 rising.
(Sabian: A Serpent coiling near a man and woman)
Mars ruler of Aries is not dignified by any means by a 12 house placement which relates well to Pisces and the idea of hidden gunman.
Pluto the Lord of destruction sits in the Mid-heaven ready to self destruct. The killing spree was described as a four-hour-long war zone.
More importantly Saturn ruler of the most public 10th house is in the 6th house of public servants for a very serious police response.
Relating to Virgo again was the fact that Richard Poplawski, 22, the shooter had recently been upset about losing his job; police say that, like Wong, he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Mars was also applying to a conjunction with Uranus signifying sudden upsets and violence and will exactly meet with the planet of sudden change on April 15th @ 3:01 AM.
Mark that day well!
By the next Full Moon on April 9th (in cardinal Libra) when Mercury enters Taurus more
incidents of human to human attacks will occur along with animal to human killings...
Plus some major earth changes events from quakes to volcanoes.

Future info: Saturn will station direct on May 16th @ 7:07 PM PDT and will be in another hard aspect to Mars (a Square) in August 10th @ 5:16 PM. Then on August 18th. Mars the God of War and forceful action squares Uranus @ 7:24 PM for another rash of unexpected violent acts. The August 10 th. date has Mars/Gemini applying to a conjunction with the US Sibley charts infamous fickle Mars in Gemini just as transiting Saturn is applying to a conjunction with the US 1776 Charts Neptune. Chances of major conflagrations within the US will occur.
