Earthquake Weather Report for June-July 2013

Updated on July 1, 2013

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


As I have brought up in an earlier hub, significant earthquakes that are either destructive/deadly or at least 6.5 Mw in magnitude are more likely around each January and less likely around each June. This last June was a pretty good example of that. An average month would see four significant earthquakes of 6.5 Mw magnitude or greater and this last June saw three. Those quakes also just barely made it into that category, with two of 6.5 Mw and one of 6.6 Mw. So, June was a bit below average and the results of my forecast were just average (when looking at 5.8 Mw magnitude or greater events as displayed on the graphic below).

My earlier suggestions that an approximately 7.0 Mw quake in Japan or one of over 8.0 Mw in the New Guinea area were likely around the corner based on recent activity in those areas may, rather than in a few months, more likely be a year or two down the road (but that would still be pretty soon when compared to the usual number of years between very large earthquakes). In Japan, it may be more like 3.5 years away based on a prediction by Britton LaRoche which you can find at this link:

Although July is not a typical month for above average earthquake activity, astrology is playing a more significant role than usual in the equation this time. Usually, by my estimate, it influences the occurrence of about 40% of all significant earthquakes. This July its potential comes out to 51.1%. So, if July turns out to be average (or a bit more activity than the prior month), I would not be surprised and I am actually expecting there to be around 1-2 earthquakes in the first half of the month and 3-4 in the later half or 5 total (or 25% more than an average month).

Below are the earthquake windows that are indicated based on astrological factors (based on the graphic above). The first three are pretty narrow and the possible locations are based on the midpoint of their ranges. The last window is thirteen days long and the potential locations are broken up into four key dates and times. The locations in bold represent a much greater potential than usual for a significant earthquake occurring there. All fractions of a date are based on Greenwich Mean Time (thus July 14.25 equals 6am, GMT on July the 14th).

July 7.5-8.5 = Turkey, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Mexico, Italy, Iran, Cyprus, Indonesia, AK, CA.

July 10.3-10.8 = Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Russia, CA.

July 14.25-15.5 = Japan, China, Taiwan, Russia, Peru, Turkey, Italy, Iran, AK.

July 18.9-August 1.0 = Split into the following groups:

July 20.25 = Turkey, Greece, Indonesia, CA, HI.

July 23.75 = Japan, Iran, Turkey, Ecuador, Mexico, CA, AK, HI.

July 25.0 = Peru, Japan, Iran, Russia, Chile, CA, AK.

July 27.0 = Peru, Chile, Turkey, Iran, Italy, Greece, AK, HI.

July 31.25 = Peru, China, Turkey, Mexico, Italy, Greece, Afghanistan, HI, AK, CA.

    Earthquake Weather Update: If anybody noticed, their were two significant earthquakes (a 7.3 and 6.6) in the Papua New Guinea area within one of my projected windows. These two quakes happened at 6:35pm & 8:30pm, GMT on July 7th and my window opened at 9pm, GMT on July 6th and closed at 2pm, GMT on July 8th, peaking about midway between at 5:30pm, GMT of July 7th (or about 1 to 3 hours prior to these quakes).

    New Guinea has been heating up seismically over the last few months and I would not be surprised if an 8.2 magnitude or greater quake were to happen there sometime in the near future. One of my next projects is to increase the number of charts of past significant earthquakes of New Guinea in my database (so I can at least potentially get better at projecting future quakes there). Currently I have 390 worldwide significant earthquakes cataloged mostly from the 11th century onwards (there are two Japanese quakes that I have that are earlier than that).

    Originally I had this last window as centered at midnight GMT between the 7th and 8th of July, starting 12 hours before and ending 12 hours after that (these two quakes still fell within that smaller window). The new description is based on how my updated algorithm has it displayed. This also affects the next window which originally was just 12 hours wide (from 7am to 7pm, GMT on July 10th).

    The updated window now starts 3 hours earlier and ends 9 hours later (the astrological effects peaking at approximately 4pm, GMT on the 10th of July). The list of potential epicenter areas is the same as given last time in my hub but in a new order as follows: Ecuador, Mexico, Indonesia, Italy, Greece, Peru, Russia, Chile, and a strong possibility is still in California.

    Another change at this point is that the last large window of 13 days is now split into two smaller windows with a three day gap between them. The first of those two windows opens late on the 18th of July (GMT) and I will likely present another update just before then.
