Xenia, Ohio tornado [Tornado]

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:42 pm

In the December 1974 issue of American Astrology, Robert Donath wrote of a frightening tornado that struck Xenia, Ohio April 3, 1974, at 4:42 PM. Many areas across the Midwest were hit by horrible tornadoes that day, but Xenia was one of the worst - most of the city was eradicated.

High casualty / high damage tornadoes are primarily Neptune and Saturn events - Neptune for the tornado characteristics themselves, and Saturn for the loss, I think. Jupiter runs a strange (distant) third place, which I think is part of a counter-point to Saturn, since tornadoes arise from the meeting and merging of opposite kinds of weather patterns. Moon aspects with Neptune, Saturn, and Jupiter are similarly most common and - along with the obvious terror and destruction of frequent Mars-Neptune and Mars-Saturn foreground aspects, almost the signature aspect of tornadoes is foreground Jupiter-Neptune.

The Xenia tornado is a decent example of this pattern.

Year: Capsolar
While other eastern areas actually had Pluto on IC, Xenia appeared to - ecliptically - but in fact Pluto was 11° away. Notice, though, what it gains in mundane aspects that other areas didn't have:
Sun on Dsc 1°26'
-- Sun-Neptune sq. 2°15' PVP
Mercury on Dsc 3°38' [sq. non-angular Uranus 0°17']
-- Sun-Mercury conj. 2°12' in mundo
Moon sq. Asc 2°55'
Moon-Pluto conj. 0°29' in mundo

Bridge

Day: Capsolar Transits
t Pluto conj. Capsolar IC (1°02')
CanQ Moon op. s/p Venus (0°14')
t Neptune conj. Cansolar MC 0°04'
t Jupiter conj. Cansolar EP 0°12'

Month: Caplunar
Saturn on Dsc 1°37'
Uranus on MC 7°40'
Pluto on MC 8°36'

-- Ur/Pl on MC 0°28'
Moon-Uranus sq. 2°32'

Week: Canlunar (Dormant.) Moon-Uranus.

Week: Arilunar
Pluto on Dsc 0°06' [op. non-angular Sun 1°00']
Uranus on WP 1°24'
Moon on EP 2°35'
-- Moon-Uranus op. 2°16'

Day: Capsolar Transits
t Pluto conj. s IC (1°02')

Day: Cansolar Quotidian & Transits
p Moon op. p Venus (0°14')
------------------------------------
t Neptune conj. s MC 0°04'
t Jupiter conj. s EP 0°12'
-- Jupiter-Neptune sq. (0°01' in RA)

The event chart has an initially unsuspected feature. First, its obvious feature at first glance is a Moon-Jupiter opposition across the horizon (Donath spent part of the article discussing his views on how this fit). Though initially seeming too positive, this is, indeed, one of the two most common Moon aspects for tornadoes. What stunned me a bit is that not only are Mon and Jupiter both within a degree of the horizon at the time the tornado struck, they are in MUNDANE OPPOSITION TO THE MINUTE OF ARC (0°00') - both 0°57' before the angle.

Moon and Jupiter... rain? Like thunderstorms? Which spawn tornados. The only thing that spawns as many tornados is a hurricane. Which has rain and thunderstorms.

Thei mpact of opposing temperatures and wind patterns made sense to me that an already Saturn-fed event could have Jupiter impact and bring something contrary. I can't say that I can outline the exact mechanism.

Tornadoes also are topped by a cumulonimbus cloud, consistent with other weather conditions (thunderstorms) sponsored by Jupiter, even if the tornado itself is not commonly rain-producing. (A few of the worst ones are saturated with rain and hail, and then there are the water-spouts - but generally, it's just wind, as best I know.)
