Mason Jar Ranch opening in San Jacinto

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:41 pm

Here's an example of a local event, of community-wide importance,that simply did not show in the charts in any way I'd expect.

Marion's sister and brother-in-law own a successful brewery in Menifee, CA called Mason Jar. The nearby town of San Jacinto is trying to build itself up, so the town offered them a sweetheart deal to open the restaurant and pub they've been wanting to open - giving them premier privileges on taxes, offering large cash subsidies (this is all documented in the newspapers, I'm not leaking anything), with the expectation that the city will recoup about 150% of its expenditures in the first couple of years. Mason Jar Ranch (the restaurant and pub) are the centerpiece of the town's renewal (in addition to a casino opening nearby). There has been enormous excitement recently. The Food Network then approached them asking to film a show about their opening, offering additional help in terms of staff training and organizational support to get them up and running months before they planned.

Yesterday (3/2) was the grand opening, complete with film crews, local beauty pageant winners (at least, I guess that's who "Mr. & Miss San Jacinto" with the tiaras were). Marion and I were sitting inside near the back when the doors opened at 4:30 PM to perhaps 200 people lined up outdoors (waiting in light rain!) eager to get in. The vibe was positive, people kept smiling and enjoying themselves all nights, and when we left about three hours later there were still people lined up to get in.

All in all, this was one of the greatest evenings San Jacinto has had, at least in recent memory.

And the Capsolar Quotidian? It's Ascendant conjoins ingress Saturn and Mercury! Not at all what I'd expect. The CanQ is as bad, the only close angularity being Asc square ingress Saturn.

Transits to the angles are better mostly in the sense that they aren't so bad. Transiting Sun crossed the local Capsolar IC, which is worth some cameras and lights.

Eventally (after spinning enough charts), one finds that the Arisolar Quotidian has IC on ingress Jupiter within a few minutes and MC within 2° of progressed Venus; but one shouldn't have to work so hard to find a clean, accurate hit (especially when the CapQ and CanQ are plenty noisy on their own). - Even the LibQ had Ascendant within 2° of ingress Saturn (that's three out of four)! As far as I know, nothing suitable awful happened in the area the same day, e.g., we were driving too and from and perfectly ordinary traffic and no breaking regional news.

Alabama Tornadoes

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Mar 04, 2019 8:10 am

March 3, 2019, 3:03 PM, Opelika, AL

America's deadliest tornado streak in five years (with more deaths yesterday than those from tornadoes all of last year) swept through Alabama this morning. (I'm glad to have seen Steve online and seemingly well already this morning.) The Lee County sheriff described the impact as being "as if someone had taken a blade and just scraped the ground."

At least 23 people died, half of them in Opelika (which is probably the best location for studying the event, as it was the hardest hit).The first tornado warning was issued at 2:58 PM, with the first damage reports at 3:03 PM. (At 3:03 PM, Mars was in partile square to Ascendant, Moon was 1° above Descendant, and Uranus was 4° past MC.)

CAPSOLAR: Mercury is 0°38' from EP conjunct Saturn 2°34' from the angle. Mercury is also 28' from mundane square to Uranus.

CAPLUNAR: Similar planets: Uranus 1°07' from IC, Moon 1°49' from EP, and Saturn and Pluto conjoined more widely foreground; but also, closest of all, Venus 0°04' from MC (square Uranus). It's descriptive enough, though not really typical of tornadoes per se.

DAY: Transiting Saturn was 0°09' from square Capsolar MC, a devastating, deadly timer. CanQ MC hit the transiting Venus-Uranus. Finally we get the signature planet, Neptune, in its transits to the Cansolar, 0°07' from WP. Saturn and Neptune, therefore, form the Bridge by Saturn's transit of a Capsolar angle and Neptune's transit of a Cansolar angle.

AFAIC, when an outer planet malefic like Saturn in this example is partile transiting a Capsolar or Cansolar angle, it's a dangerous time frame, particularly when there are weather warnings issued.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Mar 10, 2019 7:45 am

March 10, 2019, 8:44 AM BAT, near Bishoftu, Ethiopia (8N52'37" 39E15'04")

All 157 eople abiarddied in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight that had just departed Addis Ababa for Nairobi. The flight took off 8:38 AM. At 8:44 AM it lost contact, crashing near Bishoftu (8N45, 38E59), which is 39 miles SE of Addis Ababa.

This death toll makes the crash the deadliest aircraft disaster in Ethiopian history.

UPDATE 3/1/19: I now have exact crash coordinates, which are 08' of latitude and 16' of longitude different, so might make some differences in what's below. The cause of this crash may be different from the Lion's Air crash, since the plane was seen with trails of billowing white smoke and shedding clothes and other items - all of which sounds to me like an explosion in luggage stores, but this hasn't been finalized.

The crash chart is most severe. A partile Moon-Uranus conjunction rose with Saturn-Pluto straddling MC. (Pluto is in mundane square to Moo-Uranus.) With Pluto 2°02' before MC and Saturn 2°51' after MC, their midpoint is half a degree from the angle. Of the ingresses, one point of great interest is that the dormant Capsolar leaves the Libsolar as the most recent live solar ingress in the area and it's ripe for an air crash.

Sao Paulo school shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:32 am

March 13, 2019, 9:30 AM, Sao Paulo, Brazil

At a state school named Suzano, two teenagers began shooting with two pistols, killing at last eight people (seven of them students). Motive remains unclear. The "approximately 9:30 AM" time is from BBC.

As happens more often than not, the weekly lunar ingress and the CapQ tell the story pretty much by themselves.

Friday March 15, 2019
"during Friday prayers" afternoon prayers
Christ Church, NZ
Multiple fatalities in shootings at two mosques and a car full of explosives found nearby

Looking for better time information.

"The attack occurred at 1:40 p.m. Friday at a time when many people were in the Masjid Al Noor Mosque on the edge of Hagley Park, according to New Zealand and Australian media. The other attack was on a mosque in a suburb called Linwood." according to NPR

The shootings began March 15, 2019, 1:40 PM in Christchurch, NZ, specifically 43S31'58'' 172E36'42''. At present, there are more than 40 deaths and more than 50 other injuries. This is abig one.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christchu ... _shootings

Some details: The attack by "a heavily armed shooter" began at Al Noor Mosque at the above time, with 30--500 people present. The shooter "livestreamed 16 minutes of his attack on Facebook Live, where he identified himself as a 28-year-old Australian white supremacist." Earlier, he had posted on Facebook a manifesto titled "The Great White Replacement," giving details of the attack. On his guns were written the names of historic figures who had fought and killed Muslims. Concurrently (or, at least, approximately so) another shooter attacked the Linwood Islamic Center. Afterwards, two car bombs were discovered in a parked car. Four people (three men and one woman) have been arrested.

The shooting began with a Sun-Mercury conjunction at MC square Jupiter, which paints an unusual picture and might be related to motive, etc.

UPDATE 3/18: Casualties are now listed as 50, with 50 additional injuries.

---------------------------------
t Mars conj. s Asc 1°16'


ADDENDUM {+2}
Recent statistics seem to be saying that when the CapQ is silent for an event, ot only the CanQ but, perhaps equally, the AriQ and LibQ rise in importance. Was there anything else to find in these (even though the Cansolar methods are quite sufficient)?

In the Arisolar, t Pluto sq. s MC 0°08', t Saturn on s WP 0°36'.

Transiting Mars squared Libsolar Quotidian Moon 0°49', which is the world-level impact I was looking for. (This morning, the news is wrapping around the planet and leading most newspapers etc.)

So the quotidian angles themselves didn't get involved at all except for the CanQ, though transits to the Arisolar and Libsolar were right on target for isolating a really bad, violent day.

Jakarta - crashing pole derails train

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Mar 16, 2019 7:24 am

March 10, 2019, time unknown, Jakarta, Indonesia

On the outskirts of Jakarta las week, large electric pole fell rolling over two cars and damaging a third. As of 12:55 PM, the clearing of passengers was still ongoing, so it must have been in the mid to late morning.

YEAR: The Capsolar has a Sun-Uranus square closely angular.

MONTH: Mars is less than 3° from Midheaven in the Caplunar.

DAY: I'm betting nobody was hurt, even though I can't confirm it by news reports: CapQ MC was exactly opposite Jupiter. (There was plenty of "shake-up" for the area, over a longer view, with transiting Uranus conjunct Capsolar MC and Pluto conjunct Capsolar Dsc.) The CanQ adds the obligatory Mercury: CanQ M conjoins ingress Mercury.

More Moon-Mars? Or Saturn-Pluto?

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Mar 18, 2019 8:27 am

CNN observed this morning that this last weekend that President Trump's tweets this last weekend were way beyond the usual. As they summarized, "The President found a lot to be upset about over the weekend," understandable with a Saturn-Pluto conjunction rising in his current Demi-SLR. While the rest of the world was talking about New Zealand, Trump attacked John McCain again, threatened Saturday Night Live with a federal investigation, and several other things beyond the usual.

Nebraska floods

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Mar 18, 2019 8:37 am

We know the astrological pattern of floods (see SMA Ch 14) but they're devilishly hard to pin down on "when and where," since they often stretch across time and, especially, across space.

Right now, Nebraska is breaking records for flooding. It seems spread across much of the state and will continue another week. It isn't limited to to Nebraska (JSAD, how are things in your 'hood?) since 14 states along the Mississippi are affected. Flood disaster records going back 50 years are being knocked off the books. Other locations like Louisville, KY and Waterloo, IA are among the places breaking records.

A quick glance at maps viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2850#p21184 show the Caplunar with Jupiter angular across central Nebraska, Saturn square MC down the middle of Nebraska and the other plains states (this is the only place deaths have resulted), and Pluto and Moon lines square angles straddling the Mississippi River's entire length. The new Canlunar has Jupiter arcing across affected areas farther east, and Mars-Neptune converging in Nebraska. Meanwhile, this is another example of the Libsolar's exact Moon-Mars conjunction being conjoined by transiting Mars the last few days.

Utretcht train shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Mar 18, 2019 8:45 am

March 16, 2019, 10:45 AM, Utrecht, Netherlands

A short while ago, "Three people died and nine were injured... in a shooting on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht" that was a possible terrorist attack (NY Times). I suspect a religious-cultural motive (aka probably terrorist) because the shooting occurred as Jupiter had just set, strongly aspected.

CAPSOLAR: Mercury (conjunct Saturn) on MC, Moon and Uranus rising. Transportation tragedies are the most likely event in this area this year.

CAPLUNAR: Dormant but with a 0°07' Moon-Mars mundane square about 8° off angles (with Uranus: surprise violence).

CANLUNAR: Neptune exactly setting: Chaos, panic. Sun-Mercury conjunction nearby. (Notice how the Mercury theme keeps hanging in there.)

DAY: Tragic: CapQ MC conj. t Neptune 0°52', Asc op. t Saturn 0°36'. CanQ MC conj. t Mars 0°09' (sq. Cansolar Mercury: more trains!) while t Neptune crosses Cansolar IC 0°19'.

Cyclone Idai

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Mar 18, 2019 1:15 pm

March 15, 2019, 0:00 UT, Beira, Mozambique
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Idai

This cyclone struck Mozambique four days ago and has probably killed 1,000 people, "submerging entire villages and leaving bodies floating in the floodwaters" (AP). It is being tentatively called "the deadliest storm in generations" to strike Mozambique.

It struck ocean port city Beira "late Thursday" then moved inland, and has now struck many other nearby countries. Limited communication channels has made assessing the situation difficult. According to the Red Cross, 90% of Beira was damaged or destroyed.

On March 14, 0:00 UT, Idai peaked at 195 mph 10-minute sustained winds and 205 mph one-minute sustained winds. The reported landfall was March 15, 0:00 UT or somewhat earlier at Beira; perhaps in the future we will have better timing and location, but this will do for now.

LIBSOLAR. The Capsolar is dormant for Beira, so the Libsolar is the active Quarter chart. The 0°35' Moon-Mars conjunction (square Mercury partile) has Mars 0°45' above Asc, Moon 1°12' above, Mercury 0°53' from MC in mundane and ecliptical partile square.

ARILUNAR. This certainly signals rain and flooding! Jupiter 1°13' from Asc, Neptune 3° from IC (conjunct Sun), and the usual Moon-Pluto square.

DAY: With communication and transportation channels down, you know in advance that an afflicted Mercury is on an angle. The Capsolar has a 3° Mercury-Saturn conjunction and the CapQ puts the Saturn on WP and the Mercury square MC, both within minutes. Transits to the Capsolar itself are mixed, with Venus having just crossed MC and Mars minutes from EP. Supplementing but unnecessary, the CanQ puts transiting Neptune square MC within 08'. Meanwhile, transiting Pluto is just over 1° from Beira's Cansolar Asc.
