Eclipses

Astrology and Natural Disasters (2)In ancient times, astrologers looked at the stars to see whether there wereany omens that showed how affairs on earth would be affected, accordingto the essential principle: as above, so below. The word 'disaster' comes from two Greek words: dvis andastron. Astron has given the word 'astrology' and is ofthe same origin is our word 'star', and dvis has become 'duo' inLatin and 'two' in English. You will find the prefix 'dis-' in a word asdisunity, meaning that from oneness we have become divided. So inessence, disaster means that the stars are in discord. In ancient times,the word 'star' was used for all lights in the heavens, and for theplanets, wanderers, called so by the Greeks to discern them from thefixed stars. Those ancient astrologers were looking at the skies andtranslated in human terms what they saw there. The most visible anddramatic heavenly phenomena were given the most significance. These arethe eclipses of the Sun and Moon, which would be seen as omens for thecountry.

In modern astrology we have horoscopes for countries, and I haveseen well-documented articles showing us the relationship between those horoscopes and natural disasters. Another way of looking at natural disasters is to take eclipse horoscopes for a certain location and lookwhich planets are placed on the major axes (AS-DS and MC-IC) according tothe system of astro-cartography. It is possible to combine these twoapproaches, as I shall show in my first example. But before I do that, Ishall summarise the conclusions of Derek Appleby and Maurice McCann intheir book Eclipses. For them the eclipse chart is valid, andgives indications of forthcoming events and experiences that will befalla nation within the possible range of a year. A solar or lunar eclipsedegree remains potent in the cosmos for that period or even longer,depending on its duration. Transits and progressions in a national chart,which configure with potent eclipse degrees, can bring the corresponding influences into experience within a given time.

The 1953 flooding in the Netherlands

The Netherlands has a history of large inundations, both from theNorth Sea and from the rivers that cross its low-lying Delta. While in Roman times a solid coastline of defensive dunes protected the fen-likewestern and northern parts of the country, since about 500 AD the seabroke in on many places, creating estuaries. From early medieval times acommunal effort was made to build dykes to protect the land from the sea,otherwise the sea would have swallowed all these areas. After the SecondWorld War, it was clear that the dykes in the south west of theNetherlands were not strong enough to withstand a hurricane-like storm.However, it was only after the first period of rebuilding the countrythat a Delta plan was published that aimed at reinforcing old dykes andbuilding new dykes to close off sea-gates.

This preliminary Delta plan was published on the 29th of January1953. It was the day of a Full Moon eclipse, which had Saturn in Libra,the planet of boundaries and defences, right on the AS for thesouth-western part of the Netherlands, where the dykes were projected.You will see that on the map. Saturn is conjunct Neptune, the planet ofthe seas, which is on the AS in the northern part of the North Sea andthe southeastern part of England. The eclipsed Moon was very well visiblein the skies as it was at the MC, while the Sun was at the IC. The exactMoon-MC line is slightly east of the Netherlands and it crosses theSaturn-AS line in the sea north of Germany and west of Denmark.

On January 29th, a depression formed itself south of Iceland,moved towards Scotland, and became so powerful that the winds there werehurricane-like on the morning of the 31st. The core of the depressionmoved from Scotland to the southeast, and on February 1st reached thesea west of Denmark, deepening to 960 millibars. Its position was rightin the area of the crossing of the Saturn-AS line and the Moon-MC andSun-IC lines. The result was a very heavy northwestern storm on the NorthSea, causing an enormous storm surge in the southern part of it.

In theNetherlands, a warning was given by the Royal Dutch MeteorologicalInstitute that a storm was coming to the country, and because of that thedykes were watched. But nobody had foreseen that the storm surge would bethe cause of the worst inundations of modern times. As the storm raged onthe North Sea, high-tide sea levels rose in the afternoon of Saturday31st of January to a record height and did not go down much during low tide. The following night, when it became high tide again, the sea roseto such high levels that it flowed over many dykes, which then collapsedfrom the inside. The islands in the south west of the Netherlands arelevel with the sea or under sea level. No wonder that the sea broke inwith a devastating power, killing 1835 people and thousands of farmanimals. The damage to the houses in the towns and villages was such that72,500 people had to be evacuated. Some of the islands were inundatedalmost completely; others had some larger areas that were under water.All this made such an impression on the Dutch public that within threeweeks the government installed a new committee to develop another Deltaplan to protect the country from a major inundation. Additionally, torepair the dykes and to get the water out of the land, a large-scaleoperation was organised which took many months to be effected.

One would expect that amajor natural disaster like this be shown in the chart of the country.Therefore we shall look at that chart now. This chart for the Kingdom ofthe Netherlands is based on historical fact1 and the research of Karen Hamaker, awell-known astrologer from Amsterdam. The lunar eclipse of January 29th 1953 had the Moon on 9°48' Leo in opposition to Saturn at 8°51' Aquariusin the chart of the Netherlands. Moreover, the secondary progressed Sunwas at 8°06' Leo opposing the radix Saturn and the secondary progressedSaturn, which was at 9°03' Aquarius (retrograde). From thisconfiguration we can see that the radix Saturn, which rules the 8th house of death, is affected by two powerful influences: the lunar eclipseand the progressed Sun and Saturn. As Saturn is also on the AS in thelunar eclipse chart it is a very powerful influence; according totraditional astrologers it is responsible for violent storms at sea.There are two planets that by transit influence both the Dutch nationalchart and the lunar eclipse chart in that period of the storm andconsequent inundations. First, Mercury in the air sign Aquarius, whichfor the lunar eclipse chart is on the IC for the west coast of theNetherlands. It is said to cause high winds and sudden storms. As atransit, it conjoins the radix Saturn and opposes the eclipsed Moon.Secondly, Mars in the water sign Pisces, in conjunction with the radixSun, Mercury and Pluto, is semi-square with the radix Saturn andsesquiquadrate with the eclipsed Moon during that period. Mars is said tocause sudden and violent storms at sea. These transits are in real time,perfectly reflecting the events on earth.

Astrology and Natural Disasters (5)Let us look at the Dutch national chart for the themesthat are highlighted by these events. The Sun-Mercury-Pluto conjunctionin Pisces and the Cancer AS give the chart of the Netherlands a strong emphasis on the water-element. That is very appropriate for a sea-faringcountry with a capital, Amsterdam that originally was a small fishingharbour. The influence of the Cancer AS is shown in the love offamily-life and home that is so characteristic for the Netherlands and sowell depicted by its painters. The ruler of the AS and the 2nd house ofincome, the Moon, is placed in Taurus. It shows that the reclaiming ofland from the sea and the lakes, creating large polders for agriculturaluse is an important feature of the country. It was also an important wayfor merchants to invest their money.

Saturn in Aquarius is the traditional ruler of the MC, showingthat the Dutch at first preferred to become a republic ruled bywell-to-do citizens and only in 1815 became a Kingdom ruled by the houseof Orange, which before had given them their military leaders. The origins of Dutch democracy are found in the caretaking of the dykes, which was a communal task, overseen by the democratically chosen waterboards. Mars, ruler of the 6th house, is in Capricorn on the 8th housecusp, showing that the Dutch have worked hard to make their country agood and safe place to live in, although half of it is at sea level orlower, up to 5 meters and more. However, in exceptional circumstances, asin 1953, there will always be the danger of a major inundation. It isremarkable that the secondary progressed Mars at 19°35' Aries was atthat time nearly exactly square its radix position in Capricorn on the8th house cusp, indicating the people who lost their lives in the catastrophe. It has to be mentioned that parts of East Anglia also suffered from inundation and people drowned there too.

The Sun-Pluto conjunction in Pisces squaring Neptune inSagittarius is so characteristic of a country that has sufferedinnumerable inundations, but that always risen again from the sea. In1953 it was the same. A new Delta plan was proposed to parliament, andafter three days of discussion, accepted just before midnight on the 5th of November 1957. In the following years, the major sea-gates were closedoff by huge dams linking the western tips of the islands, shortening thelengths of the sea-dykes considerably. The height of those dams is about12 meters, protecting the country much more effectively than before. Thenational emblem for the Netherlands is the lion, but the province ofZealand, that was the most touched by the inundations and that has mostof the dams, has as its emblem the lion halfway in the sea, saying inLatin luctor at emergo, I fight and I emerge.

The effects of this lunar eclipse were direct and immediate, butas the authors of the book on eclipses mention, the eclipse degree can remain potent in the cosmos for a year or even longer, depending on itsduration. They state that the potency of a lunar eclipse degree persistsin the cosmos in the same way as a solar eclipse. This is at variancewith the astrological tradition, which states that the effects of a lunareclipse remain for a period of one to three months, depending on itsduration. However, I follow the statements in that book on eclipses, as Ithink that their research can be validated.

The Lisbon earthquake of 1755

Astrology and Natural Disasters (6)On the 1st of November 1755,All Saints Day, there was a tremendous earthquake near Lisbon, thecapital of Portugal, which almost completely destroyed the city, whichthen had 275,000 inhabitants. The earthquake was followed by a hugetsunami, which hit the west European and African coasts. Recently,British scientists found traces of this tsunami on the south coast ofBritain, especially in Cornwall. A witness account of the earthquake'sdevastation of Lisbon, which had three major quakes within ten minutes,describes a real inferno with loud explosions, darkening of the skybecause of collapsing buildings, and many hundreds of aftershocks, whichlasted for months. The movement of the earth was so violent that even inthe Netherlands ships on lakes were tossed about on the waves that it created. The earthquake took place at around 9:30 local time2 and was felt in most of Europe and in thenorth west of Africa, especially in Morocco, where buildings collapsedand people died. In Lisbon, all-consuming fires broke out and burned forfive days, adding to the chaos in between the ruined buildings. Thirtyminutes after the first quake, a tsunami 6 meters high hit the city ofLisbon and the Portuguese coast. After Lisbon the Algarve, south of it,was most hit by the earthquake and the tsunami. Many thousands of people perished in this lethal natural disaster, which was one of the worst inrecent historical times.

Before we look at the chart of the earthquakeitself, I shall give you the chart of the lunar eclipse earlier that yearin spring. It has the eclipsed Moon on the MC and the Sun and Mercury onthe IC, while Pluto is near the AS. On the astrocartographic map thecrossing of the Moon-MC line and the Pluto-AS line is in the AtlanticOcean near the Portuguese coast. The eclipse degree of the Moon is 7°01' Libra, and is supposed to keep its potency for about a year. Mercury, ruler of the North Node, on its way to an inferior conjunction with theSun, is opposed to the eclipsed Moon. And Jupiter, the ruler of the SouthNode and the AS, is opposing Uranus and squaring Pluto. These planets arethe most powerfully involved with the key factors of this lunar eclipsechart: the eclipsed Moon and Pluto, as they are placed on the angles ofthe chart. Note also that Mercury is semisquare Mars.

According to the German astrologer Reinhold Ebertin in his bookThe Combination of Stellar Influences, in mundane astrology wehave to look for the conjunction and major and minor hard aspects,because they tend to activate potential planetary patterns (0°, 45°, 90°, 135° and 180°). I am also using his technique of midpoints. Theexact midpoint between two planets is half way between them according tothe shorter arc. With this in mind, we take this lunar eclipse chart asour starting point. Our next step it is to look at the following solar and lunar eclipses. The solar eclipse chart of 6 September 1755 had theSun and Moon at 13°19' Virgo in exact opposition to Uranus at 13°19' Pisces, squaring Pluto at 13°33' Sagittarius, while for Lisbon the AS isat 5°24' Libra, conjunct the previous eclipsed Moon. This chart is fullof the sudden, devastating power of an earthquake, but no planet is onone of the angles of it. The eclipsed Sun and the Moon are now involved in a t-square with Uranus and Pluto, taking the place of Jupiter in theformer lunar eclipse chart.

The following lunar eclipse chart of 20 September 1755 had theeclipsed Moon at 27°05' Pisces and the Sun at 27°05' Virgo conjunctMercury at 29°24' Virgo and Jupiter at 28°37' Virgo, squaring Mars at29°39' Gemini. Note that Jupiter has moved from its t-square positionwith Uranus and Pluto in the former lunar eclipse chart to another t-square with the Sun, Mercury, the eclipsed Moon and Mars. This emphasises the important role Jupiter is playing in these eclipse charts.Again, in this second lunar eclipse chart there are no planets on theangles.

Now it is time to look at thechart of the earthquake itself, which is given here. The chart has aboutthe same angles as the first lunar eclipse chart. The AS is 14°41' Sagittarius, with Pluto exactly rising in it, and the MC is at 3°07' Libra, on the Moon/Jupiter midpoint. Jupiter is at 7°29' Libra, conjunctthe eclipsed Moon of that spring. One could argue that the earthquaketook place in the week that Jupiter was in the eclipse degree of 7 Libra,on the day the Moon went over it as well, and at the moment that Plutowas rising in the AS. In that latter chart the Neptune/Pluto midpoint isat 12°08' Libra, and the MC of the moment the tsunami hit Lisbon at about10:00 is at 11°17' Libra, again showing a special correlation. Theactual Neptune/Pluto midpoint is at 12°48' Libra, near that tsunami-MCtoo. Note also that the Moon is placed on the Mars/Pluto midpoint,showing the all-consuming fires that were even more devastating than theearthquake itself.

Astrologers consider Pluto an essential influence in earthquakes,which cause a tremendous upheaval, as in this case. Uranus can beinvolved, because of its sudden, unexpected and drastic character. WhenJupiter is involved, the effects of an earthquake will be of a large,massive nature, as we have seen here. And when Neptune is involved, the oceans can be so moved as to cause tsunamis. The planet Mars also has tobe considered, as it causes shocks and breaks things up. It can alsocause fires, as was the case in Lisbon.

If any of these planets is angular, right on the AS-DS axis or theMC-IC axis in a solar or lunar eclipse chart, we check whether thatplanet shows astrological correlations with the events on earth. I am not suggesting that these eclipses or planets cause natural disasters such asearthquakes. I am pointing to the cosmic forces, as represented by theSun and Moon and the planets, that reflect from above what is happeninghere below on earth. There will be causal factors too, as the Sun and theMoon and the planets have a physical influence on the earth. One canthink about the tides, which are higher with the New and Full Moons. Andof the 20% stronger influence of the Moon, when it is at perigee (nearestto earth) instead of at apogee (farthest away from earth). Scientists arelooking at those influences to see whether they can predict earthquakesand volcanic eruptions, but that is now beyond the scope of thisarticle.

The volcanic eruption of Tambora in 1815

On 10 April 1815, the day of a New Moon, the most violent volcanic eruption in historic times took place. It is said to have been of the order of the Krakatau and Vesuvius eruptions together (BBC documentary).It happened on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa, east of Java and Bali.After the blast, 12,000 people died, mainly because of the poisonousgases and hot ashes that escaped into the atmosphere. Tambora's aerosolcloud was of such enormous proportions that it lowered temperaturesconsiderably. The next year, 1816, was icy cold during spring and summer,with snowfall in large parts of Europe and North America. People calledit the year without summer; crops failed, and an estimated 80,000 peopledied of starvation. The remaining crater is several miles wide and deep,so that it takes many hours to descend into it.

Looking at the previous solar eclipse chartwith Sun and Moon at 19 Capricorn, we see a close square between Plutoat 19 Pisces and Neptune at 18 Sagittarius on the DS and IC of thechart. Pluto obviously relates to volcanic eruptions, and Neptune relatesto the poisonous gases that kill people living around volcanoes. On theastro-cartographic map, the Pluto-DS line and the Neptune-IC line crossin the area around the Tambora volcano. There is a close conjunction ofMars and Uranus, 45° to the eclipsed Sun and the Moon, showing thepotential of a sudden, unexpected shock. The previous lunar eclipse of 26December 1814, with the Moon and Sun at 4° Cancer-Capricorn, had an ASof 19° Capricorn for the Tambora region, but no planets on angles.

The eruption took place on the day of aNew Moon at 19°01' Aries squaring the eclipsed Sun in the solar eclipsechart of 10 January 1815. The chart is set for the time given by theBBC3. Pluto and Neptuneare still in square to each other, while their midpoint is at 5°57' Aquarius conjunct Mars. Mars is conjunct Saturn and in very close squareto the Scorpio AS. The Neptune/Pluto midpoint is squaring this AS aswell. Moreover, Mars is in close 45° to Pluto, which itself is in close135° to the Scorpio AS. In this chart Uranus is 135° to the Sun, whilein the solar eclipse chart it was 45° to the eclipsed Sun. Again we see awhole set of astrological correlations that reflect the exact moment ofthe completely unexpected eruption of the Tambora volcano.

The Boxing Day 2004 Tsunami in Asia

Astrology and Natural Disasters (11)We shall first look at thepreceding lunar eclipse of that spring, with the eclipsed Moon at 14° Scorpio and the Sun at 14° Taurus. The planet Mars is right at the IC at28° Gemini. It is aspected with 135° to the eclipsed Moon in Scorpio andwith 135° to Neptune in Aquarius, and is in opposition to Pluto inSagittarius. A very important point here is that the Mars/Pluto midpointis at 25° Virgo, opposing the AS at 26° Pisces. Mars is involved inseveral hard aspects, while the MC-Mars line runs along the west coast ofSumatra through the epicentre of the earthquake of 26 December 2004. TheMC-Pluto line runs half way across the Indian Ocean between Sumatra andIndia. Neptune at 15° Aquarius is in close square to the eclipsed Moonand the Sun. So, in this eclipse chart the most influential and moststressfully placed planets are Mars and Neptune.

It is interesting to look at the midpoint of Mars and Neptune,which is conjunct Mercury at 21°53' Aries. Mercury is 135° to Jupiter inVirgo and 45° to Uranus in Pisces. Jupiter and Uranus are in closeopposition. On the astro-cartographic map for this lunar eclipse, theJupiter-DS and Uranus-AS lines run along the east coast of India and SriLanka, which apart from Sumatra were the most severely hit by thetsunami.

The next solar eclipse, on 14 October 2004,falls at 21°06' Libra, opposing that Mars/Neptune midpoint. And the nextlunar eclipse, on 28 October 2004, with the Moon at 5° Taurus and the Sunat 5° Scorpio, has Mars at 20°41' Libra conjunct that solar eclipse. TheAS of this second lunar eclipse is the same as the MC of the first lunareclipse chart at 27° Sagittarius, which had Mars at 28° Gemini at the IC.Therefore these two lunar eclipse charts are interrelated throughMars.

In this combination of eclipse influences, we see two focal pointsor lines. First of all, the MC-IC line with Mars at 28° Gemini and theMars/Neptune midpoint line of 21° Aries-Libra. The Boxing Day earthquakewas strong, but it did not cause tremendous upheaval, so it was more ofthe nature of Mars than of Pluto. And it was followed by a devastatingtsunami, which was of the nature of Neptune. All that is very welldemonstrated in this first lunar eclipse chart, as Neptune squares theeclipsed Moon and Sun and is sesquiquadrate Mars.

In the actual chart4 for the Boxing Day earthquake,we see that the Moon at 28° Gemini is conjunct Mars of that first lunareclipse chart. In the other examples, we have seen the crucial importanceof a Light or a planet on the MC-IC or AS-DS axis of an eclipse chart.This is no exception, as it is the lunar eclipse Mars that is activatedby the transiting Moon. The Moon is in opposition to Pluto and 135° toNeptune. This shows the violent force of the tsunami that hit the coastsof the Indian Ocean.

Jupiter had moved from anopposition to Uranus to 135°, while the actual Mars had just enteredSagittarius and was square to Uranus in Pisces and 45° to Jupiter inLibra. This showed how unexpected this earthquake was, causing the firsttsunami in that ocean in 200 years, taking people completely by surprise.It is also interesting to note that the AS at 21° Capricorn squares theMars/Neptune midpoint of that first lunar eclipse chart and theMoon/Neptune midpoint of this earthquake chart.

We also have to remind ourselves that a guerrilla war was going onSumatra, with rebels fighting the central Indonesian government in searchof autonomy. After the devastating tsunami, the rebels and the government negotiated a solution to their conflict, which resulted in a (till now)lasting peace. This is another astrological correlation with Mars, whichis related to war.

Conclusion

Astrology and Natural Disasters (14)Looking at solar and lunar eclipse charts andplanets at angles in these charts gives us a good astrological startingpoint for finding areas on earth in which natural disasters might occur.However, I do not think that we can predict such specific naturaldisasters by means of astrological investigations alone. For obviousreasons, scientists are looking into the physical causes of naturaldisasters and have made predictions accordingly. But these predictionsare not flawless, although some scientists, using the New and Full Moonsin their computations, claim a higher success rate. In the future itmight be possible to combine scientific knowledge with astrologicaltechnique to get even better forecasts, which could save the lives ofmany people. I hope this might be a contribution to that purpose.

1 After the French occupation the son of the lastDutch stadtholder landed at a beach near The Hague on Nov 30th 1813. Twodays later he was installed as the new sovereign in the capital ofAmsterdam with the mandate to make a new constitution. Then the alliedcountries decided that the medieval Netherlands should be reunited toform a powerful state as a buffer against France. This kingdom wouldinclude Holland, Belgium and Luxemburg. All this was in a process ofconstitutional consultation, when Napoleon escaped from Elba and landedon March 1st 1815 with a small force in the south of France and went intriumph to Paris. It is then that king William I proclaimed the Kingdomof the Netherlands on the 15th of March 1815 at The Hague, which hasalways been the seat of the Dutch government. The time of 9.30 LMT isbased on the research of Karen Hamaker-Zondag and given in herastrological magazine Symbolon.
