Death Sentence to be carried out in Nebraska

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Mon Aug 06, 2018 3:08 pm

10 AM, August 14th,State Penitentiary at Lincoln, NE
Carey Moore, convicted of killing two cab drivers, will be put to death with undisclosed chemicals, the first time the state of NE will use lethal injection, the first time any state uses the recently adopted 4 chemical protocol and the first state-sponsored killing n NE 1997.
Lots of firsts. One big last.

At the scheduled moment, Saturn is about a degree from IC in Sagittarius. "The End."

Furthermore, Lincoln is on that mid-country stretch where the Capsolar's Moon-Mercury-Saturn conjunction is angular, with Saturn 0°48' on one side of IC and Moon 0°48' on the other.

The Caplunar has Mars opposite Sun 0°14' with EP with Sun within 2° of WP and Mars closer to 3° from EP. A Moon-Pluto conjunction is in the rising foreground, among other fine points. - Neptune is on the Canlunar's IC.

For the scheduled hour, murder is on the menu, with CapQ MC 1°08' from transiting Mars Uranus < 2° from square Mc) and ingress Mars 0°56' from CapQ Descendant. This puts the two Marses in an implicit 0°12' square (co-angularity) with relation to those angles. Transiting Saturn will be 0°49' from Capsolar IC.

We don't need anything from the CanQ, but - guess what! - it's MC is the same as the Capsolar MC, so transiting Saturn is also 0°02' from CanQ IC.

While one could conceivably interpret all that Saturn as "everything goes wrong and they have to stop," it seems much more likely that Celebrity Death Event will go off as scheduled.

They're holding it at 10 AM to avoid drunken revelry and bloody fights between revelers and protesters as have happened in the past. They want some sense of decorum. I want to sue so they have to say in the name of the people of Nebraska except JSAD. Another item on the list of things I will do should I ever win the lottery or something.

Mendocino Complex Fire now Cali's biggest

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Aug 06, 2018 9:58 pm

The Mendocino Complex fire (a complex of two large fires: the River Fire and Ranch Fire) today became California's largest wild fire ever.

If began July 27, 2018, time unknown in Mendocino County, California. It has presently destroyed 283,800 acres.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mendocino_Complex_Fire

The Ranch Fire started it all, and began July 27, 2018, 12:05 PM near Potter Valley, CA. If there is a single start time for the Mendocino Complex fire, this is it. (The River Fire started about an hour later near Hopland.)

The Ranch Fire began with Pluto near IC and an 0°08' Moon-Mars conjunction partile opposite Sun.

The State of Nebraska committed a retalitory murder

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Tue Aug 14, 2018 9:20 am

At 9:15 AM the order of execution was read in the presence of the inmate, Carey Dean Moore, and witnesses. The IVs were started at 10:24 AM. At 10:25:27 AM the curtain was raised so the witnesses could observe. At 10:31:14 he stopped breathing. At 10:38:46 his eyelids opened partially. At 10:39:12 the curtain was brought down while the body was checked for signs of life. At 10:47 AM he was pronounced dead. At 10:53:20 the curtain was lifted again and the dead body was displayed to the witnesses.
Moore was 60 years old and had been incarcerated for murdering two cab drivers. He was on death row for 31 years.

ETA. This occurred at the Nebraska State Penitentiary, in Lincoln NE.

Thanks, Steve. I've incorporated this above. They're nearly indistinguishable this time. (My estimate of Mean rate gives 13°09' Pisces and 2°11' Cancer).

Kerala, India floods

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Aug 19, 2018 8:04 am

Kerala, a state in SW India (Capital: Thiruvananthapuram, 8N29, 76E59) has experienced unusually severe monsoons this year (the worst in a century), killing about 350 people, destroying thousands of homes and roads, and forcing 300,000 people from their homes and into shelters. Current (preliminary) estimates are that property damages total $2.7 billion.

I don't have a date for when these rains began, but one source references flooding in July; another speaks of the monsoon season in general beginning in late May. Today's news speaks of this continuing but showing signs of receding. (CNN: "Flash floods and landslides have killed 171 people in the past 11 days but half of those deaths were reported in the past three days...")

The CAPSOLAR is dormant, meaning that its only contribution is the keenly appropriate Moon-Mercury-Saturn triple conjunction.

The critical chart, though, is the ARISOLAR. Because these events started before mid-July, I guessed ahead of time that the 2018 Cansolar ws dormant, and the Arisolar would tell the story and flow through into the current quarter. This is exactly the case. Like the whole world, India has a Moon-Saturn square in the Arisolar, but the afflicted area has Mars exactly on MC (< 2° for the capital), Saturn and Pluto also in the upper foreground, and Moon, Sun, and Uranus rising. Among the mundane aspects formed are a 1°18' Uranus-Pluto square, 1°52' Sun-Pluto square (Pl=Su/Ur 0°17'), and the Moon-Saturn square being mundane as well as ecliptical.

The current (July 27) Caplunar was especially violent, with a close (mostly partile) Sun-Mars-Uranus T-square on the angles.

Venezuela earthqake 7.3

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Aug 21, 2018 5:50 pm

August 21, 2018, 21:31:42 UT, 10N44'21'', 62W54'38''

Venezuela was already suffering, with inflation approaching 1,000,000%, the whole economy caving in, and the nation in great upheaval. Then, a few hours ago, the coastal area was hit by a massive 7.3 magnitude earthquake. It occurred near Yaguaraparo, primarily hitting poor fishing villages along the coast. No word yet on casualties or damage.

The chart for the quake itself was atypical. Jupiter squared Ascendant with Mercury setting. This isn't the only time we see that pattern: The charts are barely adequate and, at some points, quite bad unless it turns out that casualties and damages are incredibly small.

[UPDATE 8/22: So far it looks like, indeed, the impact is quite small, in which case these charts are quite excellent - showing an event but showing the protection even more. Current chatter is that the unusual depth of the quake mitigated damages considerably, There haven't even been any injuries reported in the first day, according to quoted Venezuelan officials.]

UPDATE 9/1: Yes, it looks like this was a minor event where the real "story" is how little harm was done. I'm scoring it below based on this interpretation of the event, in which case the charts are quite good.

Year: Capsolar (Dormant.) Moon-Mercury Moon-Saturn.
Year: Cansolar (Dormant.)

Bridge (None.)

Quarter: Arisolar {+2}
Jupiter sq. MC 1°50' (Asc 2°55')
Venus more widely angular.
-- Venus-Jupiter op. 3°01'
Moon-Saturn sq. 0°31' in mundo

Month: Caplunar (Dormant.) Moon-Uranus.
Week: Liblunar (Dormant.) Moon-Pluto.

Week: Canlunar {+2}
Pluto on EP 0°37'
Moon-Uranus sq. 0°40' in mundo

Day: Capsolar Quotidian {+2}
p MC conj. s Neptune 0°23'

Day: Cansolar Quotidian {+2}
p Asc conj. p Jupiter 0°40', t Jupiter 1°49'
p MC conj. t Mercury 0°15'


As an experimental check of something extra, here are PSSI calculations using (approximate) mean rate.

PSSI Capsolar
p MC sq. t Mercury 0°55'

PSSI Cansolar
p MC conj. p Mercury 0°31'

PSSI Arisolar
p MC sq. t Uranus 0°11'


Seen from the capital
The capital, Caracas, had to have worse charts because of the economic and other cave-in that's going on and, in fact, its CANSOLAR has Saturn 1° from IC. The LIBLUNAR has Neptune 1° from Asc (which only shows the jitters: it doesn't tell us how bad it al is). As the quake hits, CapQ Asc squares t Neptune 0°07' t Uranus is square Capsolar MC 0°53', and p Mars is on CanQ IC 1°42' (but Jupiter on EP).

Tanker explosion blocks LA freeway

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Aug 24, 2018 9:02 am

August 24, 2018, 5:15 AM, Hawthorne, CA

Two people died when a tanker truck and an SUV collided in what was described as a fiery explosion. Distinctive enough itself for noise and tragedy, the strongest impact was that it shut down an important freeway for three hours across rush hour (plus the adjacent Green Line train).

Year: Capsolar {+2}
Neptune on Dsc (3°04')
Moon-Mercury, Moon-Saturn

Bridge {-2}
t Jupiter conj. Cansolar IC 0°43'

Quarter: Cansolar {+2}
(A fabulous example of a PVP!)
Mercury on Asc 0°50'
-- Mercury-Saturn sq. (0°12' PVP)
Jupiter on IC 3°14'

Month/Week: Caplunar {-1}
Mercury on IC 0°33'
Jupiter on WP 0°24'
-- Mercury-Jupiter sq, 0°46' (in RA)
Sun sq. Asc 0°43'
Moon-Mars conj. 3°44'

Day: Capsolar Quotidian {+2}
p Asc conj. t Uranus 0°53'
p MC conj. t Pluto 0°30', s Pluto 0°17'
p EP conj. s Mercury 0°51'

Day: Cansolar Transits {-2}
t Jupiter conj. s IC 0°43'


And for comparison (mean rate):

PSSI Capsolar MC conj. t Neptune 0°08', Dsc conj. s Saturn 0°01' (WoW, the orbs are as impressive as the contacts!)

PSSI Cansolar IC conj. t Saturn 1°23'

PSSI Arisolar MC sq. t Neptune 1°16', s Neptune 1°14'

Jacksonville video game tournament shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Aug 26, 2018 2:52 pm

August 26, 2018, about 2 PM, Jacksonville, FL

Three people (including the shooter by suicide) are reported dead from mass shootings at a video game tournament in a Jacksonville, FL shopping mall. Altogether 11 people were shot. Reportedly the killer was a 24-year-old tournament competitor who lost and was retaliating.

Wikipedia is calling it the Jacksonville Landing Shooting:

Hurricane Lane: The Big Rain

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Aug 27, 2018 1:56 pm

Hurricane Lane didn't hit Hawaii directly, but ended up dumping an enormous amount of rain. At Mountain View, on the Big Island, rain measured 51.53 inches! Primary effect was August 24. This is second or third greatest amount by a U.S. hurricane since 1950, with Harvey (almost exactly a year ago) at 60 inches and Hiki (1950) at 52 inches.

though much of the string of islands (especially near the capital) had Saturn on the new Caplunar MC, this wasn't true on the Big Island, where the Caplunar was dormant. However, the Liblunar had Neptune on IC.

Neptune also rose there in the CapQ for the 24th and 25th.
