Christchurch Earthquake

Christchurch Earthquake AstrologyThere was a 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch New Zealand today, September 4 2010, causing widespread damage, the government has declared a state of emergency. Previously we have looked at charts for major earthquakes in relation to the aspects involving trans-Neptunian planets, especially Sedna and Eris.

“Sedna in astrology may be linked to earth changes. It’s orbital period is very long at over 10,000 years and it is approaching it’s prehelion, coming closer to Earth.” – Planet Sedna Astrology

Sedna again looks to be important in this Christchurch earthquake. It is the action point of a Yod aspect pattern to Mars sextile Ceres. Ceres does seem to have some influence over environment issues. Mars opposite Eris ties this other trans- Neptunian into the configuration.

Eclipse Path

This map from NASA shows the path of the July 2010 Solar Eclipse just touching New Zealand.

That eclipse was at 19.24 Cancer, and the Ascendant for the Earthquake is 19.24 Cancer! The Ascendant is most important in astrology, it is the star rising on the eastern horizon for that time and place.

UPDATE February 22 2011 – Christchurch NZ was hit by another major earthquake today, 12:51 pm, magnitude 6.3. A quick look at the chart shows a stellium of planets in late Aquarius, early Pisces. Venus is on the DC of the 2010 quake. Jupiter is square Pluto. Uranus is square the Lunar Nodes, and square the December 2010 lunar eclipse degree.

Horoscope for New Zealand is based on the signing of the constitution in 1853*.

For the September quake, the lunar eclipse was conjunct the NZ Mercury and Saturn was square Mercury. Today, Jupiter is square the NZ Mercury.

For todays quake, the December 2010 Lunar Eclipse was conjunct North Node, opposite Venus. This means that today, the lunar eclipse and the North Node are conjunct the New Zealand North Node. In fact the exact return of the North Node is today 1:03 pm (precessed). Uranus is also square the North Node (exact on March 4). Back in September, Jupiter was square the NZ North Node.


UPDATE December 23 2011 – Yet another earthquake in Christchurch today. “Christchurch has just been hit by a major aftershock, after a “vicious” 5.8 quake hit the city at 1.58pm this afternoon.” Major aftershock hits Christchurch.

  1. I think you will find Jamie that the scientists predicted the 5.1 aftershock. Ken Ring had predicted …ie one for the history books…THAT IT WAS NOT….I have been following with keen interest since the Feb 22nd quake anything and everthing on earthquakes because my daughters live in Christchurch . I have been very afraid because of the Ken Ring so called prediction. My gut feeling now is that Christchurch will still have aftershocks for sometime to come but they will be ok now. Have any of you heard of an organisation called Haarp?

  2. Hi guys , have any of you felt an earthquake over a 6 ? Do any of you live in Christchurch ? Have any of you been made homeless twice within a 6 month period ? Have any of you been living out of a suitcase for over 6 months due to an earthquake ? As for feeling sorry for ” the moon man ” , who has cost me approx. $1000 this weekend to keep my children on some sort of even keel due to the fear of another ” big one ” , what can I say ! We want to buy a house in Christchurch as this is our home , if you have any concrete evidence / advice , please please please …. put it forward or shut up.

    • Hi Arlene…no, on this website we won’t “shut up”..we say what we feel…what we believe in…we give opinions on future predictions…wether they come true or not…we keep on going…

      My heart goes out to you and your family..all I can say is: keep on going…love Barb

      • Lol,Dont listen to this woman Arlene she is obviously a nut.She says “we give opinions on future predictions…wether they come true or not” lol I thought people who gave predictions knew what they were talking about.So I could say my opinion on a future prediction is Barb will get struck by lightning or Barb will get a hair cut OMG will they be true or not.You say Barb on this site we won,t “shut up ” well my future prediction is you will lololol,Arlene dont listen to these nuts,I am from chch to and it is so sad but CHCH will rise up and we are strong staunch cantabrians,stay strong Arlene and stay away from nuts like this,Good luck xxx

        • Gypsy, I understand how you are disturbed lately. I seriously think you are going nuts because this site it hitting its numbers and yours isn’t. You both have an afflicted Mercury and Uranus in crazy combinations and you’re just as disturbed as a poisoned monkey. Envy my dear…tsk…the poison that is self-inflicted. If you don’t like anything you see around here, take my advice: move on. But you can’t, and in fact you hate yourself for reading on and on and struggling with our concepts because there’s your dark and mean and probably heavily-stenched goddess inside DYING to come out, meet and interact with US. The sooner you set her free, the better for you, otherwise your physical brain and heart will go on auto-malfunction and boy, what a boring prospect to witness as you litter around here.

          Move on and get a life. Otherwise, just evaporate.

          • Wow and I thought you were on to it for like half a second.I don,t have a site and I don,t want one.I am not a astrologer or anything like that so if you want me to evaporate I won,t as I am controlled by me noone else.Oh and the only way I am disturbed is by liking the Band.And I am a pig not a monkey.And I envy noone I am very happy with who I am and were I am.poison self inflicted lolol.Heavily stenched very immature.Lol I am as free as a bird,Your the one ttrapped lol,

    • arlene – I understand that you are traumatized and angry. But we are just astrologers here – and we are looking at ways to predict earthquakes and more importantly to examine possible long term trends. No one, nobody – no scientists, geologists, psychics, etc. – has as yet been successful in accurately predicting earthquakes. In fact the only man with any success is Jim Berkland, a former USGS geologist in California, and he made a recent prediction which did not come to pass. So… really no one.

      I suggest that you not read these posts if they upset you. They are not meant to upset or influence anyone. We are just examining evidence to see if there is any possibilty of making long term conclusions. Only you can make decisions about your own life.

      • Susan…when I read your blog I thought your were Susan S.Ferguson (who blogs on here quite a bit)…are you?…or are you another “Susan”???
        Regards Barb

        • The same. When I first signed up I didn’t realize that would be my “name”.
          Eventually I figured out I could shorten it.
          I still don’t know how to put a little picture in the box.
          Very cute & fun.

          Thank you, barb.

          • Susan – go to :

   (have kept the full link off so add the http etc

            sign up (its free) and upload the pic you want to be your visual signature when you post online and it should appear instead of the little green glyph….

            • Thanks, rob!
              Before I do this – will giving them my email put me on a span spree?

            • shouldn’t – I believe they are using akismet which filters spam 100% – see for some info on this – I work with these guys for my blog and its v cool allround – I would trust the gravatar crew but you may want to check your security settings on your (excellent) web site if you want to max security there – as for e-mail, gravatar are, in my experience, integrity incarnate….

  3. Hi Arlene…listen to Susan’s words carefully…as they are full of wisdom.

    You came to this post because you are scared of the future…you have kids to think of…so you are trying to figure out the best way forward…and most likely this post has scared you even more….

    Your inner voice is the best way to go…listen to it…Kind Regards Barb

    • Wow. I can feel your HATRED. It’s so intense, it’s starting to push each of your hair follicles out of its roots! Let’s see. Why don’t we CONVERT that spare energy you’ve got in there to fuel this site’s traffic. For each hate comment you’ve got whether posted or not, it will draw more healing and positive comments into the site to neutralize yours. Either way, the site will enjoy MORE traffic.

      We’re a lot of do-gooders so let us BURN your HATRED into positive fuel that we could use around here.

  4. Hi Susan…I want to know how to put a photo in too…maybe someone “kind hearted” can help???…like Rob???!!!…Barb

  5. Another quake in Christchurch yesterday…no appreciable damage done.
    If one accepts the Geodetic earthmap ( Uranian Institute…is online)… and I am finding it to be highly reliable…then Christchurch has about 11 or 12 degrees Capricorn rising.
    A nice Yod ( thank you Jamie ) arranged around Aries ( equal house)IC …Cheiron/Neptune, Uranus and Jupiter opp Saturn at MC and another one around DC….Ketu, Sun Moon opp Pluto in AC.
    How come everything starts at Greenwich is a mystery…but ( thank you Susan) Ptolemy used a similar map a couple of thousand years ago. His map started in the Fortunate Isles off the East coast of America…so if that was accurate then and Greenwich is accurate now then it may turn out to be a moving point of energy….does anyone have any ideas about this ?
    Japan has about 12 Scorpio AC and its earthquake was easily understandable from that.
    California has around 7 Aquarius AC….and its 1906 earthquake is easily understood from that.
    If it is going to be a mega blast with much destruction then Rahu and Ketu will be very involved with backup from Saturn Uranus Jupiter Pluto in particular.
    It is possible to get a major earthquake with little planetary warning…and these seem to be the ones in remote areas that do not do much damage. A lot of planets all lined up may produce a lesser quake and major destruction.
    A young man who was in a terrible earthquake in Turkey wrote a nice page about Geodetic Turkey and the lunar nodes plus….from inside his car a day or two later. Can be found under Geodetic Turkey as a search….my heart goes out to him.

  6. Actually Ptolemy’s 0 Aries was a longitude position so not far off what we have now.
    High energy points moving around the globe was a nice idea tho…

  7. I thought New Zealand was an aquarius nation.

    6 February 1840 @ 2.04pm Waitangi NZ. the date of New Zealands self government was 23 January 1856, New Zaland did not acheive independance until 26 september 1907 at 00.01 hous and even then full sovereignty was not granted until 26 november 1947 when the status quo of a “commonwealth realm”/Kingdom of New Zealand took affect
