I’ve been amazed at the number of explosions in the news over the past few weeks as Saturn and Jupiter square off against fiery Mars during the December Grand Cross (see other articles below for more details about the Grand Cross).
Friday morning as of 6:30 am:
An explosion occurred at a Russian nuclear plant outside St. Petersburg.
A gas chamber’s control room exploded in Bhopal, India.
There have been two explosions at the Augustine Volcano in Alaska over the past week.
Wednesday a hospital in Cambridge Massachusetts had to be evacuated in freezing cold temperatures after a boiler exploded.
On Tuesday, when the Moon joined the other planets in the Grand Cross:
A Bergenfield New Jersey apartment complex exploded after construction workers hit a gas line.
A chemical explosion took place in a Perdue poultry plant in Maryland.
A gas line exploded in an apartment building in Westminster Colorado caused a huge fire that forced 100 people out of their homes.
A gas explosion took place in aerosols factory in Liverpool UK.
A meth lab in a Super 8 Motel in Lake City Florida.
A pillbox exploded in a Manila suburb injuring at least 20 people as the result of a business feud.
An explosion rocked Central Athens when two gas canisters ignited in an apparent terrorist attack.
Last Sunday an oil depot exploded in the UK, with a blast so intense it ripped a buried back-up generator right out of the ground.
Most of these explosions were unrelated to political unrest, and simply the result of a combustive atmosphere linked to gas lines. I expect this explosive environment to continue until the fire of Mars makes its last square to repressive Saturn at the end of December.
