Hard Planetary Aspects = Active Sun = Radio Disruption


This story begins with a man name John H. Nelson. He worked for RCA as an electrical engineer in the '40s and '50s and did research for his company to see if there was a link between planetary aspects and solar disturbances that then effected short wave radio transmissions. He found such a strong link that he was able to predict disturbances in radio transmissions well before they happened and at least 80% of the time (he later improved on that performance). You can read his work in "RCA Review" of March, 1951 or "Electrical Engineering" of May, 1952.

What he found was that long term disturbances of moderate strength were due to slow moving planets such as those beyond the planet mars that were locked in a 90 or 180 degree aspect. These interactions would last about a year and, during that time, faster moving planets that are closer to the sun would then aspect those planets in similar aspects or smaller ones that were either conjunct one of these planets or at least 7.5 degrees or multiples of that from one of them. During the times where the faster planets interacted via key angles, radio signal disruption was magnified even further.

Ideally the faster planet would form a T-square aspect with two slower planets in a 180 degree relationship by aspecting each from a midpoint which would be 90 degrees from each of the two. Similarly, if the two slower planets were in a 90 degree angle, the third planet would aspect them at their midpoint so that it would form a 45 degree aspect to each of them. If however a planet formed a 60 degree or 120 degree with one or both of the two planets then radio transmission would actually improve instead of worsen. These findings were right in line with traditional Astrology which stated that these last aspects were harmonious or soft and the earlier ones discussed here were discordant or hard.

Peak Eclipse Astro Aspect Values Precede Quakes


In my research I have found that the angles between planets that relate most to earthquakes are less major than the ones discussed above (with the exception of the 45 degree angle). However, in my latest study involving solar eclipses (thanks goes to Britton LaRoche of Austin, Texas and his earthquake/eclipse blog) and their effect on triggering earthquakes within the vicinity of the shadow that they produced on the earth's surface, I have found that the major hard aspects play more of a role. In other words, the more hard aspects that there were interacting with the sun-moon conjunction (during the eclipse), the longer lasting its impact and the more intense its effect would be in triggering earthquakes of significant size in the future. For example, below is an astrological chart of an eclipse which occurred on August 11, 1999. Notice what astrologers call a grand cross pattern in the chart made up of two t-squares joined together to form one large box shape. The sun and moon, which are conjoined, are linked to three other planets in this pattern of hard angles. This eclipse was then instrumental in the triggering of three earthquakes. The first one occurred 6 days later (in Turkey), the second 3 months later (in Turkey), and the fourth 2yr7mo later (in Afghanistan). All three earthquakes were of 7.4 magnitude. Not only did astrological aspects for the periods just before these occurrences resonate with the chart of the earlier solar eclipse, but the locations of these quakes were all within a short distance of the eclipse path as shown in the map below.

A more recent annular eclipse on May 20, 2012 has also had some profound effects seismically in areas that were relatively close to its path across the surface of the globe (see chart and map below). Two large earthquakes in the Sea of Okhotsk, Russia occurred on days that resonated with the chart of this eclipse. The first was of magnitude 7.7, occurring on 8/13/12, and the second was an 8.3 magnitude earthquake which took place on 5/23/13 (this last one happening to be the deepest earthquake ever recorded). Another 7.2 magnitude earthquake happened in Russia, even closer to the eclipse path on 4/13/13. A 6.7 magnitude aftershock to the 5/23/13 mega-quake occurred on 9/30/13. These last two quakes also had planetary aspects which resonated with the eclipse chart just before they occurred.

One last quake occurred in northern Japan on 2/2/13. It resonated with the eclipse chart 9 days prior and was delayed in occurring until it reached the opening of a large significant window of (unrelated to the eclipse) strong astro-aspect values. This earthquake was registered as 6.9 in magnitude.

Similarly, a large significant window of strong astro-aspect values opens up for almost 7 days, beginning at 0640 UT on 10/31/13 and closing at 0255 UT on 11/7/13. There are two primary peaks of astro-values that relate directly to the eclipse chart of 5/20/12 within this large window and the second (and larger) one is less than a day before a very large peak of astro-aspect values which relates directly to this window (see the graph at the end of this article). Between these two peaks, there is also a peak due to a chart in my database that resonates strongly to the elevated astro-factors in play during this time. That chart is for the 1891 Mino-Owari earthquake of 8.0 magnitude. The peak of this resonance is at 0940 UT on 11/5/13. Although it is expected that at least one earthquake of at least 7.2 magnitude will occur and could happen anywhere within this larger window in an area that was close to the eclipse path (possibly in Japan or the areas north of or northeast of there), it is most likely to occur after 1940 UT on 11/4/13 and before 1455 UT on 11/5/13. Also, the most likely location would be in Japan (in the vicinity of Kyoto or near the epicenter of the 1891 earthquake) or just off its southeastern coast (see the zoomed in map of Japan at the top of this page showing the track for the 5/20/12 eclipse).

It was my intention to wait till about 2 days before the end of October to post this but, since I have a high level of confidence in regards to this forecast, it was my decision after further consideration that it would be better to share this information earlier rather than later.

    Although the predicted earthquake in this hub didn't occur when it was forecast to, I still believe that the area discussed will see a significantly large and potentially damaging earthquake at some point in the not too distant future. Where this prediction went wrong can be discovered in a companion hub to this one that was published after I realized the errors of my ways. You can read that hub by following this link: http://hub.me/afYGO
