Richard Nolle predicted the earthquake in Turkey

If you don’t already subscribe to Richard’s planetary forecast, I strongly recommend it. In his October forecast he notes that the Scorpio New Moon on October 26th is a SuperMoon with potential for significant geocosmic effects:

The likelihood of destructive storms, seismic events (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes and volcanic eruptions) as well as extreme tidal surges associated with the October 23-30 SuperMoon shock window is planet-wide in potential. If there are signs of particular target zones, they may be suggested by the astro-locality map for this alignment. This includes a longitudinal zone running from Iran up through Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia; and along the middle Pacific coast of North America (including Alaska, British Columbia, and the Pacific Northwest as well as California in the US). There’s also a horizon arc sweeping northeasterly through Australia and across Papua New Guinea, on through the Pacific to Kamchatka, crossing the Bering Strait and running along northern Canada before turning southward to pass through the Atlantic just off the eastern tip of Brazil. When the headlines of the day are written, they’re bound to include some extreme storm, tide and seismic activity along one or more of these zones. (Note that some of the same target zones are emphasized in both the full and new moon astro-locality maps.)

Read the entire October forecast here. Richard Nolle is the originator of the term Supermoon to describe a moon that is closest to the Earth and therefore has a more powerful geocosmic effect.

Richard also suggests that this Supermoon period will bring about some economic improvement, saying “ it should be good for bonds, stocks and good strong currencies. Increased production and hiring look like part of this SuperMoon.” European markets are up today so we’ll see over the next few weeks whether Richard’s economic […]

And now, earthquakes and tsunamis

Anyone who has been reading this blog will remember that when Pluto (the destroyer/renewer) entered Capricorn, the Earth sign of material stability, I (and other astrologers) predicted that when Uranus, the planet of radical change, entered Aries and began to form a challenging square to Pluto that earthquakes, pole shifts and other earth changes were likely to occur.

Right on schedule, with Uranus entering Aries today, the largest earthquake ever to hit Japan (8.9 magnitude) struck today, resulting in a tsunami that swept across the Pacific and forced evacuations in California and the entire west coast of the United States.

Meanwhile, Indonesia’s Mount Karangetang also erupted today, just hours after the earthquake in Japan, and new studies suggest that “resting” volcanoes can wake up much more quickly than previously believed possible.  Uranus can be fairy explosive in its actions, and in the fiery sign of Aries is associated with volcanoes and other explosions of fire.

Not only has Uranus just entered Aries, the Planetary K index has been at a high level of 5 for the past 24 hours.  The Planetary K index measures the level of geomagnetic activity, and an elevated K-index can bring about disturbances not only in satellite equipment, but also in the electromagnetic fields with which we are surrounded and in which we live.  So if you are feeling somewhat scattered today it’s probably not your imagination!

The astrology of the Iceland volcano

astrology of iceland volcano

Beginning late in December, with Saturn and Pluto aligned in a tight challenging square formation,  seismic activity began to activate the Eyjafjallojokull volcano area.  The challenging square formation creates a buildup of energy that necessitates a release, often an explosion or crisis of some kind.  Obviously, the Saturn/Pluto square has not caused volcanic eruptions everywhere, but this is an interesting coincidence.

Pluto is the god of destruction and regeneration, and as it travels through the earthy sign of Capricorn I have long predicted an upsurge in volcanic and earthquake activity along with other earth changes, particularly next year when Uranus and Pluto begin to square off in a challenging battle.

This seismic activity gave rise to a number of small earthquakes beneath the volcano, and by late February GPS readings showed the earth had begun to quickly displace.  Between the 3rd and the 5th of March, close to 3,000 earthquakes were measured at the epicenter of the volcano (source:  Wikipedia).

The current volcanic eruption is thought to have begun around 11 pm local time on March 20.  At the time the Sun had just entered Aries and was opposed by Saturn, setting off the Saturn/Pluto square.  At the time of the eruption, Neptune was sitting right on the IC of the chart for the local area, suggesting the presence of the water element and the presence of fog or mist.

Shortly after this initial eruption, a flow meter device recorded a sudden and unprecedented rise in water level and water temperature.

On April 14th, at the time of the New Moon in the early degrees of Aries (fire and initiation), the volcano resumed its eruptions, causing flooding and the release of a large cloud of […]

This Full Moon is a Supermoon

Full Moon Supermoonphoto taken from

The Full Moon on January 30st will be a very interesting event – so interesting that it’s getting its own radio show entitled “Fire and the Full Moon.”  It’s not only a powerful Moon astrologically, but it’s at perigee, meaning it’s at its closest proximity to the Earth.  This is why it is so big and beautiful, but it’s also more powerful now.  Spaceweather says it’s the biggest Full Moon of the year, and astrologer Richard Nolle, who coined the term “Supermoon” as far as I can tell, predicts “an increase in coastal flooding due to higher than usual tides, a gaggle of strong storms with high winds and heavy precipitation (triggering inland flooding), and of course an up-tick in moderate to severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions).”

This Full Moon will stoke the fires of our inner aggression and challenge us to direct that fire wisely. The Moon is in the fire sign of Leo – the sign of expressing the Ego and expansion of the Self. The Leo Moon conjoins Mars, also in Leo, and opposes the Sun and Venus which are both in the impersonal (or transpersonal) sign of Aquarius.

The theme of this Full Moon is that of balancing the shadow of the inner fire for self-direction with the solar conscious principle of fairness and justice for all. This balance is not easy to achieve, but we have in the chart of this Full Moon the additional aid of a harmonious sextile between Pluto (transformation) and Jupiter (philosophy and Truth). We are certainly aware that our personal desires (Moon/Mars) are conflicting with what we know to be necessary in order […]

The astrology of the recent earthquakes

There was a huge seismic event yesterday, and I’m not talking about the resignation of Simon Cowell.  A 7.0 magnitude quake shook the capital of Port au Prince at 4:53 pm local time on January 12.  The extent of the damage is not yet known but this quake is being called the strongest one to hit the island in 200 years.
This event follows closely on the heels of a 5.8 magnitude quake in Baja on December 30th, two earthquakes in the Solomon Islands on January 4th, a 6.5 magnitude quake in Northern California on the 9th, and a 4.3 magnitude quake in Southern California on the 11th.  All of this occurs as Saturn, planet of structure, prepares to face off in a challenging aspect (square) to Pluto, planet of explosions and transformation, in between two eclipses.  Pluto is in the earth sign of Capricorn, the sign of earthy stability and its placement there suggests some danger for earthquakes and volcanoes as well.
There is some conjecture that earthquakes do tend to follow a lunar eclipse although no research study has been able to prove a connection.  We did just have a lunar eclipse on December 31st, and we have a solar eclipse coming up on January 15th.  This eclipse, as I noted in my previous post, has a powerful Saturn/Capricorn signature which does suggest some disturbances to the Earth, since Saturn and Capricorn both represent the Earth element.
As I wrote recently, the upcoming planetary alignments that involve not only Saturn and Pluto as described above but also Uranus, planet of revolutionary change, could bring about some major changes in the earth’s structure.  In the meantime, please send your donations to the people of Haiti who are among the poorest in the western hemisphere.
