Eruptions with Fire and Ice from Iceland to DC
We are in a window when cardinal signs like Aries are activating and accelerating energies
above and below the ground. 0-1 degrees of the Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, are extremely critical degrees. This weekend was a perfect example these cardinal degrees in powerful aspect.
As Sun-Mercury-Venus in Aries all translate the Saturn TSQ Uranus-Pluto
events will fall like dominoes.
Last weekend's happenings were over the top in explosive frequencies combining he elements of fire (Aries) and ice (Capricorn) Starting with the first cosmic trigger on Saturday, Mercury in early Aries square to the king of the underworld, Pluto @ 1:16 AM PDT. Later on @ 10:33 AM PDT or 5:33 PM UT the Solar Core the vital Sun entered Aries to start the new season...
As soon as the Sun went into Aries an incredible TSQ was set up with opposition to Saturn in TSQ to Pluto.
Aries is an explosive sign so a literal even like Eyjafjallajökull volcano's eruption in southern Iceland was fitting.
State of emergency declared after Icelandic volcano erupts, first since 1823
From Volcano News: At the beginning of March 2010 over 3000 earthquakes were measured in a 24 hour period, with a maximum at magnitude 3.1. Mars ruler of Aries was stationing the first part of March and stationed direct in Leo on March 10th. Mars was in a trine to Venus the first planet to enter Aries and opposed Saturn (March 9th) and squared Pluto (March 11th) so by the time Mercury moved into aggressive Aries on March 17th, the glacier was ready to blow.
An eruption began near the Eyjafjallajökull glacier on 21st March 2010. Locals reported lava fountaining and a lava flow from the glacier. Residents were evacuated.
"Volcanoes are known to change the course of history and Iceland
Iceland's Laki volcano erupted in 1783, freeing gases that turned into smog. The smog floated across the Jet Stream, changing weather patterns. Many died from gas poisoning in the British Isles. Crop production fell in western Europe. Famine spread. Some even linked the eruption, which helped fuel famine, to the French Revolution. Painters in the 18th century illustrated fiery sunsets in their works."
More Fire and Ice at the House of Representatives.
Sunday March 21, 2010: The House passes the Senate Health Care Bill by a vote of 219-212
Chart set for 10:46 PM EDT has Scorpio rising with Pallas in Scorpio in the first house with the penetrating and determined strategy which achieved this vote.
Pallas is in a close square to Vesta in Leo and the Mid Heaven which relates to political fanaticism.
Thor's Hammer Comes Down
Inchart below there are multiple examples of the Thor's Hammer better known as a Quadriform: This consists of two planets in square aspect (90 degrees) and both in an octile or sesqui-quadrate aspect (135 degrees) to a third planet. Most notably Mercury-Pluto in a square with both sesqui-quadrate MC/Vesta in dramatic Leo.
The energy of this aspect pattern is a little like a T-square, since it has stressful, dynamic energy. However, the octile aspects (based on dividing the circle into 8 pieces) tend to be a little more complex than the square or opposition. In this case Vesta is also in a close square to Pallas in Scorpio and both in sesqui-quadrate Mercury.
The House of Representatives passed the Senate Health Care Bill by a vote of 219-212 on Sunday,
Scorpio ascendant is in a close opposituon to Juno in Taurus (which signifies deals made involving tangible assets and gifts to get this vote.)
Mars ruler of the chart in the 9th house which represent aggression or aggressiveness on the part of those in power to get this legislation passed. While Mars transits in Leo till June 6th the fires will be churning but when Saturn continue retrograde into Virgo on April 7th new elements of service come into play. Saturn finally turns direct on May 30th but doesn't enter cardinal Libra to really upset the applecart till July 22nd.
July and August are most active and volatile period all year.
