Updated on December 20, 2014

Has studied astrology/historical seismology since the late '70s in San Francisco. Published in the ISAR International Astrologer in 2012.

Seismic Activity Slowly Picks Up Speed

Although November 2014 leaned towards it being a bit above average for 6.8 magnitude or larger earthquakes, quakes below that were basically average. However, one thing stands out when looking at both larger and smaller earthquakes, and that is that they were centered on the Indonesia area of the globe rather than being more uniformly placed along the Pacific Ring of Fire. In other words, their distribution in that area of the world was above average while elsewhere it was below average. This would seem to indicate that bigger earthquakes are in store within an arc from Japan, southwest to Malaysia, and east to Samoa.


Interestingly, and related to past eclipses rather than a recent trend in distribution, most of the month of January 2015 (1/2-1/27) includes this arc of increased activity as likely areas of significant seismic events for that month.

In my last report, it was forecast that a 20 day period from November 21 through December 10 would be a bit more active than usual for significant events (of 6.8 magnitude or larger) and it was, but so too was the period 20 days before that. However, when activity should have dropped off (at the end of the 20 day period) it did decrease.


Also in that last forecast, I listed Japan, China/Taiwan at the beginning of my list of potential areas of earthquake activity for the last 10 days of November. I also listed that same area one notch lower for the first 10 days of December. Although there were no significant earthquakes of magnitude 6.8 or larger in those areas during that time, there were noteworthy quakes in China (magnitude 6.0+0.1), Japan (magnitude 6.2) and Taiwan (magnitude 6.15).

Earthquake Focus Centers In On Indonesia

One recent area of interest based on an increase in seismic activity is the northern Molucca Sea in Indonesia (surrounded by Malaysia to the west, the Philippines to the north, and New Guinea to the east). Two of the 6.8 magnitude or larger earthquakes which occurred in the month of November were in this geographic area. I counted a 6.8 magnitude event there as significant even though it was possibly just an aftershock of a 7.1 magnitude event which occurred 11.5 days prior to that. I usually don't count aftershocks as relevant to astrology, but I do count pre-shocks in that regard and there is a good chance that both of these earthquakes were pre-shocks to a larger earthquake to come.


For the first month of 2015, activity should again be at least a bit more busy than the statistical average, but I am betting it will be more active than the prior two months. There are a few date ranges of interest, but the one I'll be looking at the closest will be during the last three days of January when there is potential for a significant seismic event either east of or south of Florida.
