Global Hot Spots
The map included shows planetary lines of Mercury in fiery Leo overhead and Saturn Rising in Libra -- during the most recent Full Moon (July 3, 2012) -- over a substantial part of the USA Midwest Region & East Coast where the intense heat and power failures affecting millions. You will note that Mercury and Saturn are also exactly 75 degrees apart. 75-degrees? That's not an aspect, is it? Guess what? It is -- particularly if you realize that the Earth itself is divided into 24 time-zones of 15 degrees each and if you divide the 360-degree circle of the zodiac by 24 (also the # of hours in a day), you get the number 15. Well, an aspect of 75 degrees is precisely 5/24 of the zodiac. Some students of astrology might think I am making this up. I'm not. Many wise and knowledgeable professional astrologers over the centuries -- Johannes Kepler, Charles Carter, Charles Jayne, Dr. Marc Edmund Jones, Dane Rudhyar, Edward Johndro, Grant Lewi, Michael Erlewine, Evangeline Adams and Noel Tyl -- would certainly be open to considering two celestial bodies separated by exactly 75 degrees to have some kind of powerful influence. In this case, I believe it is the fiery power of Mercury in Leo (ruling energy of air, atmospherics and temperature!) coordinating with the restrictive, frustrating and chronic nature of Saturn (also in an air sign) -- where both together have been co-creators of this recent heatwave in the USA Midwest and Eastern regions.
