In 1977, a very wise man told me I may live to see a revaluation of our currency. He told me to start horading Susan B Anthony $ when they came out--said if they revalue the currency the gov would not call in coins. I never really understood what he was trying to explain to me. But he said all face value of coins could increase 10-20 fold. If this is getting ready to happen, I figure the word is leaking out and people are beginning to hoard coins.

Because people are paying with debit cards, not cash, and all the coins are sitting in boxes on people's dressers or in the bottom of their purses.

There isn't a shortage of coins. They just aren't being circulated right now.

This is not getting ready to happen. People aren't "hoarding" coins. They just aren't using cash right now, so coins are not in circulation. As soon as people start going to buy lattes while on break or hamburgers at lunch (ie back to work away from home) the coins will show up again.

So coins are being taken out of circulation because of Covid-19 with people not using cash/coins--but credit cards. Makes good sense.

US Navy ship on fire while docked in San Diego

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Sun Jul 12, 2020 12:34 pm

July 12, 2020 9 AM Pacific time San Diego, CA
The USS Bonhomme Richard, an amphibious assault ship and light aircraft carrier, docked at the US Naval Base in San Diego while undergoing scheduled maintainence between deployments, suffered an explosion below decks, probably caused by welding.
Several sailors are being treated for light injuries and San Diego firemen for smoke inhalation. The Navy has stated there is no indication of foul play.

As often happens, the event chart itself has nothing to offer.

Like all of Southern California, San Diego's Capsolar has Neptune rising, good for all sorts of excitement. The Arisolar has Mercury rising.

Of great interest, though is the Caplunar: San Diego was primed for something like this. Neptune is < 2° from square Asc, Mars is < 1° from IC. (This is in addition to the ubiquitous Moon-Pluto partile aspects.)

With a long-term backdrop of transiting Neptune square Capsolar MC, the CapQ also brought Neptune to an angle - both Neptunes on its Descendant - with transiting Mars 25' from opposite CapQ Moon worldwide. It's quite on the money (though Neptune angular events often are a lot of commotion and worry for an ultimately small event).

Oh, for explosion itself (rather than just commotion and fire), the Cansolar got in the mix: Transiting Uranus is 0°06' from its San Diego Descendant. Then, CanQ angles swung around to conjoin Cansolar Mars and Uranus.

It's quite a precise convergence of factors.

Sudan law reforms

Post by TheScales_BothWays » Fri Jul 17, 2020 9:45 am

Sudan's post-revolutionary transitional government has (over the past week?) approved several law reforms, among which are repealing the death penalty (which were applied to crimes like apostasy [now decriminalised] and gay sex [reduced to a prison sentence]), repealing corporal punishment such as public flogging, criminalising female genital mutlation (FGM), abolishing the requirement for women needing a permit from a "male guardian" to travel with their children, allowing non-Muslims to drink in private and some others.

Arizona Democratic HQ arson

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Jul 25, 2020 1:14 pm

July 24, 2020, 1:00 AM, Phoenix, AZ
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... =hvper.com

The Arizona Democratic Party headquarters was "completely destroyed" in an arson attack early Friday morning.

There was genuine loss (but jot of life). According to a Huff Post article, "The inferno destroyed decades’ worth of gathered voter and candidate information and memorabilia, according to local news reports." The actual time was a bit before 1 AM because that's when firefighters arrived.

Hurricane Hanna landfall

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Jul 25, 2020 4:54 pm

Landfall: July 25, 2020, 5:00 PM, Padre Island, TX (26°N50'40'', 97°W22'04'')

It's a small storm (Category 1, 90 mph winds at landfall), but the only one we've had this year so we might as well take a look. It landed as Neptune crossed IC of the area.

A big part of the story is that the area hit (around Corpus Christi) has had an unusually bad time with COVID-19.

I'm expecting a poor showing - except, that would be appropriate for a small storm. I've been watching the area all year and, while other parts of the Gulf coast are very threat-prone this year, Texas has been dominated by benefics. Let's see how it shakes out for today... (Conclusion: It looks like a whole lot of rain and, at best, the kind of event that has low or no casualties... until the Week, when all hell breaks loose! The Canlunar is perfect, then the CapQ finally nails it.)

Seattle & Portland Protests

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Jul 27, 2020 9:05 am

CNN this morning:
It was another weekend of protests, arrests and calls for justice. In Seattle, at least 47 protesters were arrested on Saturday night alone. The Department of Homeland Security has said a response team from US Customs and Border Protection will be sent to the city to remain on standby to help protect federal facilities. A similar situation has unfolded in Portland, Oregon, which has become a focal point of ongoing unrest after President Trump sent federal agents to the city earlier this month to protect federal property. Other demonstrations took over city streets in Aurora, Colorado; Oakland, California; Louisville, Kentucky and other locations. In Austin, Texas, a man was killed on Saturday after shots were fired into a crowd of protesters. A suspect is in custody.
Seattle and Portland are on the same meridian of longitude - which is also the same as San Francisco and Oakland. If factors or on or square the MC axis of one, it hits all of them together.

In the 7/20 Canlunar, Mars squared Ascendant through Portland but didn't reach as high as Seattle. But it was the Liblunar, which didn't come into play until Sunday (after the worst of it in Seattle) that really shows this, with Saturn on IC near Seattle, Portland, and Oakland. Additionally, Pluto squares Ascendant through the Bay Area, while Jupiter-Pluto roughly straddle Seattle and Portland.

But if the Liblunar didn't come in until Sunday afternoon, why were things so terrible Saturday night? That would seem to have everything to do with the Cansolar Quotidian, which had transiting and ingress Saturns conjunct Ascendant.

Najib found guilty

Post by TheScales_BothWays » Tue Jul 28, 2020 10:12 am

Earlier today (July 28), former Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak was sentenced to 12 years in jail and a 210 million ringgit (US$49 mil.) fine after the Kuala Lumpur High Court convicted him on all 7 charges for the first of a series of cases involving the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal. He still has more trials to face, and he is now on bail/stay of execution pending his appeal to the Court of Appeal.

The sentence was delivered by the judge on/around 6.30pm, when t.Pluto was partile on the Eastpoint, t.Saturn was partile sq. MC, t.Jupiter was 2 degrees above the Ascendant (and the t.Jupiter/t.Pluto midpoint was partile on the Ascendant in mundo). Najib's Saturn-Neptune conjunction was also squaring the Ascendant partile, with his Mars squaring the MC around 1°. And oh, the Moon was in Libra.

Re: Najib found guilty

Post by TheScales_BothWays » Tue Jul 28, 2020 10:15 am

Najib Razak was born on the 23rd of July, 1953 in Kuala Lipis, Pahang, Malaysia (location can be found in Solar Fire's database). His birth time is unfortunately unavailable. I even found a video of him holding his renewed birth certificate, but there was no time of birth stated on it. :(

Though, I remember I estimated his birth time to be around 9.45am. It showed a fitting SLR for his arrest and arraignment two years ago.
His current SLR for Kuala Lumpur (which is also his residence) has transiting Sun and Mercury straddling the MC with their mundane midpoint conjunct it partile. It looks good for the court matter and media attention, but doesn't show the negative judgement, unless you count the SLR aspects:
t.Sun oct. r.Pluto 0°06' in mundo
t.Moon oct. t.Saturn 0°57' in mundo
t. Venus oct. r.Saturn-Neptune, 0°41' and 0°39' respectively in eclipto
t.Saturn conj. r.Sun 0°54' in mundo (0°56' in eclipto)
t.Saturn oct. r.Venus-Jupiter, 0°31' & 0°25' respectively in mundo

Quite fascinating that even in a locale near the equator, mundane aspects can add a lot of info, in this case, bringing "near-miss" ecliptical aspects into partile orb.

Looking at secondary progressions (using birth place) for 6.30pm, he has progressed Moon sesqui-squaring both p.Saturn (0°28') and t.Saturn (0°25'). Natal Pluto is partile on progressed MC (0°01'!) with progressed Pluto closely on MC and Zenith but partile on neither. p.Mars also semisquares a partile progressed Uranus-Neptune square. Intriguingly, p.Venus and p.Mercury are semisquare each other. p.Mercury also makes a partile square to natal Uranus (is this valid?)

He didn't have a lot of transits today, other than the Sun conjunct his Mercury (which lasted until the early afternoon), t.Jupiter opposing his Uranus (which I find odd, unless that refers to his million-ringgit cash bail/stay of execution) and t.Neptune 0°57' oct. r.Mercury.

His new SSR looks quite inactive, though when looking at ecliptical aspects from SSR to natal, the chart seems to lean positive. His demi-SLR looks inactive too.

Of course, this is just using an estimated birth time and it could be wrong.

Beirut explosion

Post by TheScales_BothWays » Tue Aug 04, 2020 12:29 pm

Breaking: Two huge explosions have rocked Lebanon's capital, Beirut. The Guardian says the explosion (probably the second, largest one) took place at 6.05pm. (Note: Lebanon currently uses Eastern European Summer Time, UTC+3, but Solar Fire doesn't apply DST time changes to Lebanon from this year onwards. Maybe it's just on mine.)

The explosions took place in the Beirut Port Silos (location can be found on Google Maps). The second explosion sent a blast wave carrying debris/dust and formed a red, mushroom-shaped smoke cloud. Firefighters handling the fire from the first explosion went missing. Lebanese officials claim the site is a warehouse of nitrates/combustible chemicals (initial reports from them said that it was a fireworks warehouse), and that the explosion is caused by ammonium nitrate.

The explosion damaged buildings and vehicles as far as 10 kilometres away, shattering windows and tearing open metal casings and gates. Lebanon's health minister announced that more than 25 people were killed and more than 2500 are injured. The explosion is said to be heard up to the cities of Sidon and Tyre, Lebanon and felt throughout Cyprus.

Re: Beirut explosion

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Aug 04, 2020 1:01 pm

Thanks. There's already a Wikipedia page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Beirut_explosions

UPDATE 8/5: The explosion registered as a 3.3 quake and, therefore, USGS has pinpoint timing of it: 15:08:18 UT, 33N54'06", 35E31'11". Deaths are now "more than 113," more than 4,000 injured, and hundreds missing.

August 4, 2020. You listed the first explosion as 6:05 PM; the second, stronger (felt hundreds of miles away) explosion was about 6:30 PM. The location was 33N54'03'', 35E31'05''. So far at least 30 are reported dead and 2,700 injured (and large numbers missing).

While strong through te Week, the daily indicators fall short (the Pluto transit that is the only Bridge element being barely in orb and covering the entire year). (The Cansolar looks like a terrorist attack to me, but the reports seem solid that it was not.)

I didn't get this for Beirut's Capsolar (and other ingress charts). I think it's because of the typo in the longitude:

I was going to say the longitude was a typo (it was), but it seems the typo did propagate to all the charts. Oops! I'm going to redo all the above.

NOTE:
This is a rare occasion where lunar phase charts told a better story than the Sidereal ingresses. Almost exactly one day before this explosion, on August 3 at 5:59 PM EET, a Full Moon occurred at 16°44' Capricorn with luminaries closely square Uranus at 15°37' Aries. This is enough for the world at large to expect more Uranian events for two weeks.

For Beirut (specifically, the explosion site), it occurred with Saturn 2°43' above Ascendant opposite Mercury 2°52' below Descendant (0°09' mundane opposition). More widely foreground are the luminaries, Pluto, and Saturn - and, of course, Pluto conjoins the rising Saturn within a comfortably close orb. (Both Castor and Pollux are within a degree of Descendant, in case anyone wants to make something of that.)
