Great Molasses Flood of 1919

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun May 07, 2017 11:00 pm

On January 5, 1919, at 12:40 PM in Boston, an event NY Times has called "a tsunami of molasses" occurred when a tank holding 2.3 million gallons of molasses ruptured, spilling molten goo into frigid winter streets. It flowed at 35 mph to the sea, killing 21 people, injuring 150 others, and levelling buildings to the ground, reducing them to rubble, collapsing an elevated train.

This death by stifling sweetness is one of the strangest disasters of all time. The wave of molasses was "as high as a football goalpost," according to contemporary descriptions. The substance thickened as it went, becoming tar-like, and trapping people who couldn't evade it.

When I first read about this, I was intrigued. What astrological factors would accompany such a strange disaster? Would it show as a flood, as a structural collapse? How much Venus would be involved for all that sweetness?

Sure enough, we start with a tragic Capsolar wherein Venus is the most angular planet; and yes, overall, it shows as a flood but without strong indications of rain.
