Japan Horoscope

Japan Horoscope

On March 11 2011 a 8.9 earthquake and tsunami struck Sendai, Japan causing the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. We look now at the astrology and the fixed stars in relation to this disaster. The December 2010 Lunar Eclipse was on the massive fixed star Betelgeuse in the Orion Constellation. As mentioned in that blog, the Japan horoscope has Moon conjunct Betelgeuse (13′). By comparison, Australia has Neptune (floods) on Betelgeuse, Egypt has the Sun (president) on Betelgeuse. The Moon in the Japanese chart represents her people, so the masses are directly impacted by the Lunar eclipse.

The Lunar Eclipse activated the Japanese Moon, conjunct by 40′. At the time of the earthquake, Uranus was putting more strain on the people, being square the Japanese Moon (76′). Uranus brings unexpected, shocking events. Uranus also rules earthquakes and the nuclear industry. Update: Fukushima Nuclear Plant Explosion.

With Uranus on the fixed star Scheat, the events can involve catastrophes, especially concerning the ocean and water – tsunami. The Lunar South Node was conjunct the Japanese Moon (03′). I’m using the precession correction value of 102′.

Japan HoroscopeOther transits to the Japan chart worth mentioning:
Pluto opposite Chiron (29′).
Jupiter conjunct Venus (34′).
Chiron conjunct Mercury (04′).
Ceres conjunct MC (78′) quincunx Ceres (09′).
Ascendant conjunct Saturn (25′).

Now to the chart for the earthquake itself, data from USGS [1]. As mentioned above, Uranus is on catastrophic Scheat. Lilith is also on Scheat, and exactly square the Nodes. Lilith the baby killer in this case, the square tearing apart family relationships.

Mercury, the messenger of the Gods is square the Vertex, or destiny. Mercury is on a fixed star called Deneb Kaitos (04′) in the constellation of Cetus, the Sea Monster (the Kraken in Clash of the Titans). Deneb Kaitos gives “misfortune and compulsory change” [2], and “Inhibitions and restraints in every way, psychologically and physically” [3].

There is a major aspect pattern in this earthquake chart called the Fist of God, or Thor’s Hammer. The technical name is the Quadriform aspect configuration. It is the triangle with the red lines. Moon square Neptune, both sesquisquare (135°) Saturn. With a Fist of God, the tension from the square can lead to violence or destruction at the apex planet.

Japan HoroscopeMoon square Neptune puts the population against the ocean, Neptune is the sea god Poseidon. Neptune in hard aspect like this also represents suffering and victims. The Moon is on a major fixed star called Alcyone (02′) in constellation Taurus, part of The Pleiades Star Cluster. The Pleiades are prominent in the Cherokee Prophecies about the major changes ahead for us. “The Pleiades causes bereavement, mourning, sorrows and tragedies” [4].

So the Moon and Neptune focus their energy down on Saturn, the earth, the land. Saturn in mundane astrology rules infrastructure, buildings and property. Saturn also rules the economy, and the Japanese economy was already teetering, this might tip it over. The Fist of God in this mundane chart points to destruction from an act of God. Remember the Ascendant in the earthquake chart is conjunct the Japanese Saturn.

    Better hurry because it may not be long before international trade comes to a halt.

    Nuclear fears keep shippers wary of travel to Japan
    SINGAPORE, April 13 (Reuters) – Foreign crew members remain hesitant to travel near Japan’s quake-crippled nuclear plant, including to some ports outside the exclusion zone, forcing shippers to use Japanese vessels instead to transport goods, senior industry executives said.

  2. Speaking of Edgar Cayce…
    “Edgar Cayce predicted that dramatic physical changes would affect the Earth … would begin with the eruption of Mt. Etna.”
    *Etna has sprung back to life as April opens, with new eruptions from the Southeast Crater Cone. Friday and Saturday (April 8-9), the Italian volcano produced some ash and a 3-km lava flow, but then quieted. However, the seismicity under the volcano continued and late tonight into today (April 10), Etna starting producing small strombolian explosions from the Southeast Crater Cone (see below). You can check out a full description of the renewed activity on the INGV-Catania website (written by, surprise, Dr. Boris Behncke – be sure to follow him on Twitter for all sorts of updates). This is now the third eruption at Etna since the beginning of 2011. Eruptions reader Pgen Pgen also posted a timelapse of some of the April 9-10 activity at Etna.

    Looks like that eruption has settled down, still awaiting the big one. I just learned the other day from Marina’s post on the Persephone Myth, that Pluto came out of Mt. Etna to abduct Persephone.

  4. Some have wondered if this event was “triggered” by HAARP. While I have no idea myself, this webpage presents evidence that it was. Takes a while to load.
    article & images here:


    The HAARP magnetometer data provides proof that the Japan earthquake was not a naturally occurring quake – it was triggered. This data shows us that a HAARP military installation was broadcasting the known earthquake signature frequency in order to trigger a major earthquake. The broadcast was most likely being transmitted from a floating HAARP system like the floating Sea-Based X-Band Radar platform that can be moved anywhere in the Pacific or Atlantic ocean under the protection of a carrier strike group – like the USS Ronald Regan. Where was the USS Ronald Reagan on the morning of March 11, 2011? According to a Stars & Stripes March 9, 2011 report – Reagan carrier group steams toward South Korea to join exercise.
