It is over a year since the 8.9 Earthquake struck Sendai in Japan causing the devastating explosion at the nuclear plant Fukushima. The consequences for humanity are only beginning to be felt I fear. We have not been told the true extent of the radiation and its effects. Clif High lives on the west coast of America and has been in possession of a Geiger Counter since before the Fukushima explosion. He has seen with his own eyes the alarming rise in radioactivity in the area he lives.
Clif helped develop “the Web Bot Project in the late 1990s. It’s an Internet bot software program or a web spider that originally was designed to predict stock market trends. Eventually it developed into something different. Now it’s claimed to be able to predict future events by tracking keywords on the web.” Red Ice Radio. From studing the trends, Clif has made a prediction that there will be a further explosion at Fukushima after another earthquake. He has even come up with a date: July 10 2012. He says the consequences of this 2nd explosion are nothing less than grave and will affect everyone in the northern hemisphere. Not just through the air, he says it will permeate all our food up here too. Needless to say I really hope he is wrong! I admit don’t know the science behind this. I am just interested in what the stars have to say.
Jamie has already looked at the astrology behind the Japan Earthquake and Fukushima Plant Explosion the next day. The previous December 2010 Lunar Eclipse (which I called “Ball Breaker”) then had been on fiery “Red giant” Betelgeuse, itself going supernova in the heavens. Japans Moon is on Betelgeuse. Transiting Uranus on disastrous Scheat was squaring Japans Moon further activated this hot spot. The south node of the Earthquake chart was also on Japans Moon on Betelgeuse. I shudder over what I wrote concerning that eclipse “ Betelgeuse is gasping and puffing on it’s death bed. The feeling is that we are at the end of an era and that this overblown giant wants to go out with a bang. Maybe the best thing to do is just stand back and enjoy the fireworks knowing we are being somehow taken care of.” I hope we are being taken care of.
Transits to Japan Horoscope
What is this year’s Solar eclipse doing to Japan then? It falls on Japan’s Neptune, which is on none other than the notorious Alcyone in the Pleiades. Generally this is not a good omen, since the Pleiades. “causes bereavement, mourning, sorrows and tragedies”. Neptune rules poisons and of course the sea. Much of the seafood in this area is now sadly radioactive and unfit for consumption. If I go by what I generally predict for eclipses, then this could go either way as the title for this eclipse was a hopeful one and spoke of magical cleansing. We would need that cleansing if this prediction of Clifs came true. I also wrote “ This solar eclipse is also about sorrow, tears, broken hearts, open hearts, empathy, compassion and eventual redemption. There could be a collective tragedy, maybe a flood, which galvanises charities and politicians around the world to do something large scale. This mass empathy could be enough to melt those hearts that have been encased in ice for too long.”
Solar eclipse conjunct Neptune (66’)
Neptune Rx conjunct Mercury (25’)
Ceres conjunct Pluto (25’)
Jupiter conjunct Pluto (26’)
I don’t like seeing poisonous Neptune aspected like this after looking at my eclipse forecast. Nor do I like Pluto being inflated by transiting Jupiter either. This Jupiter/Ceres conjunction amplifies Pluto too. Ceres and Pluto were conjunct during the Icelandic Volcano eruption, which grounded airplanes in Europe. I wrote back then “So Ceres in conjunct with Pluto raises issues then of whether we “Choose Life” or dice with death as shown by the last few times they were in conjunction.Ceres will confront powerful big business and take them to task over their raping and pillaging of the earth.”
Ceres conjunct Pluto Mundane Events
28th Nov 2005. UN Climate change conference.
29th Jan 1996. End of French nuclear testing.
30th Nov 1981. US and USSR start arms reduction talks.
At 1.48pm JST (*World wide times below) July 10 2012 there is a dangerous window where we get Moon conjunct Uranus. Although Uranus is not on Scheat like in the Fukushima explosion chart, it is still in the same volatile constellation Pegasus, this time on fixed star Algenib “Excess of heat resulting in violence and perhaps misfortune or dishonor.” Moon on Algenib “exiled or forced to flee, ill health,” which could be describing having to leave the radioactive zone. Moon/Uranus will fall bang on the midpoint of Japan’s Venus/Sedna conjunction too.
Jamie has already linked Sedna to earth changes. I do see her as being associated with tragedy, betrayal and abandonment (By the Government?) If we think of the sad state of our seas since Fukushima, this really fits with Sedna “when her mass of unruly hair becomes tangled she becomes enraged again and threatens to withhold her bounty. The good shamen know that in order to ensure an abundant supply of fish, they need to soothe and comfort Sedna by brushing her hair”. Moon conjunct Uranus can be accidents and it certainly describes emotional shock.
That Algenib Moon will activate the already volatile Uranus square Pluto in the sky. It gives us Moon square Pluto: “This is the raging Kali archetype par excellence….In some cases the mother as destroyer can be literal. The moment HMS Titanic struck the Plutonic iceberg the Moon was square Pluto. How symbolic of this aspect, the great ship weighed down by her treasures, plunged deep into the underworld with the loss of so many lives” Moon square Pluto has a similar theme to Sedna. The actual chart for July 10 has a violent Sedna/Lilith conjunction on Capulus, Algol’s decapitating neighbour. Capulus is the male Lilith, the aggressive sexual energy that slew demon Medusa. Eris is opposed Saturn (13’). More wild female energy versus patriarchy, and suggestive of having to tame and restrain her. Maybe we have to appease our raging mother earth, and go back to the old fashion practices of sacrificing something to the gods. Our wasteful consuming lifestyles I mean, not goats…
Web Bot 2012 Doomsday Predictions
The problem with disaster predictions like this, is that when you then look at the astrology you are already viewing it through a negative lens. Those Neptune conjunctions could also be warning us of self deception, especially with Mercury. Is this delusion and doomsday paranoia be coming from Clif himself or the world governments in relation to the extent of the radiation? With Neptune its always hard to tell.
Are there any positives in the prediction chart itself? There is a minor grand trine to Venus on Aldebaran. “With Venus: Honor through literature, music or art, creative abilities, favorable for health and marriage.” Though the Ebertins say that Aldebaran with Venus can be “power directed wrongly” and for Aldebaran generally “Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods, shipwrecks.” Generally Robson makes it fortunate, but then says the benefits seldom last. So not that encouraging then…
All things considered it could just simply mean a bad day for Japan. The danger period is just an hour around 2pm. We have many bad days like this and the world doesn’t end. I don’t like spreading fear or negativity, but when I hear about predictions and dates the astrologer in me can’t resist having a peak of what may be the message behind all this. The May Solar eclipse path does fall over Japan, but it’s more of a watery eclipse than an explosive one. We can only hope that the web-bot is just picking up on our negative thinking, and that maybe this is a warning to clean-up our minds.
Worldwide Meditation: One of our regular commenters Vajranagini has suggested we mediate around this time. Peak time would be 15 mins before and after your local time below. Group meditations showing respect for mother earth are always a good idea, especially during Moon square Pluto so please join in if you can.
Los Angeles: July 9.48pm. London: July 10 5.48am. Paris: July 10 6.48am. Toronto: July 10 12.48am. New York: July 10 12.48 am. Sydney: July 10 2.48pm.
UPDATE! Japan Floods July 12th 2012
Japan Floods Kill At Least 26, Thousands Remain Cut Off. The rain seems to have started on the 12th when Venus was on Aldebaran (35′) as above “Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods”, combined with the Solar eclipse falling on Japan’s natal Neptune. A watery eclipse. I’m glad the worst did not happen, but the flooding still claimed lives unfortunately. Here are the other transits. Saturn on Japans rising Uranus. Pluto opposite Japans Chiron on Skat in Aquarius. (10′). Maybe it could’ve been worse as this star “ it is said to indicate safety in a deluge.”. And as already mentioned but with different orbs: Neptune Rx conjunct Mercury (48’) Ceres conjunct Pluto (69’) Jupiter conjunct Pluto (50’).
