Earthquake and World Trade Bombing
Since the 9.0 earthquake and horrifying tsunamis were considered an act of Mother Nature by almost everyone, and so many people view Mother Nature as “non-conscious” (in the higher sense of the term), and tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children were killed and maimed by these events, it may appear at first hand to be rather cold to insinuate that there was some kind of karmic retribution in this part of the world on December 26, 2004 for the extremist actions of terrorists on September 11, 2001. Nevertheless, I want to point out some unusual astrological links between these dates.
The media has indicated for several years now that al-Qaeda has shifted much of its international “headquarters” to the Indonesian area. Why? This spread-out land of over 200 million people is heavily Muslim by religion. There has been a civil war raging for decades between Islamic fundamentalist extremists and the government. The leader of Finland was just trying to bring these two sides together in Helsinki (January 29, 2005) but had to suspend his efforts because of intransigence in the negotiations. At the same time in Thailand, a vast meeting of dozens of nations in the region struck by the earthquakes and tsunamis ended with only partial agreement in setting up advance tsunami-warning centers. Thailand itself wanted to be the one, main hub for the warnings, but disapproval by India and Indonesia prevented an agreement. Hawaii has been the key center for tsunami warnings affecting the many nations in the Pacific Ocean and this has been in effect for a long time. Thailand wanted to play a similar role but apparently this won’t occur in the greater Indian Ocean region.
The above paragraph reveals how international rivalries and suspicions still play an enormous role in the world. A key question is: Could Mother Nature and the Earth itself have an inherent wisdom and consciousness to direct a catastrophe to a certain part of the globe deliberately? I believe the answer is “Yes” and while this may seem very disturbing to some people, I think it reveals that there really are no accidents and coincidences.
As proof of what I am sharing, take another look at the chart for the World Trade Attack of September 11, 2001 (see below) and consider its links to the Earthquake chart for December 26, 2004. [Note: The latter chart is in the first article in this series.]
One of the most difficult sky patterns on 9/11 was a Saturn-Pluto polarity. Notice that Pluto is located at 12+ Sagittarius. When the 9.0 earthquake hit Indonesia, Mercury and Venus were right at this zodiacal location. Venus was within 1 degree and Mercury was almost precisely on top of the 9/11 Pluto. Pluto rules anything extreme and the underworld (!) from Greek and Roman mythology. What is an earthquake if not a severe jolt from the underworld of the Earth affecting the surface realm? Mercury and Venus represent the break-up of communication and transportation (Mercury) and loss of loved ones (Venus) in this part of the globe.
In another example, take a look at the Mars placement in the 9/11 chart. You will see it in early Capricorn and very close to the Lunar South Node. Mars has always been the red planet of war, violence and bloodshed. The South Node of the Moon connects with fate, destiny, karma and the public. When the earthquake struck, the Sun had just crossed the 9/11 Mars-South Node area in Capricorn.
The largest planet Jupiter also reveals a linkage between the two events and dates. Back on September 11, 2001, the first plane hit the WTC when Mercury was exactly rising at 14+ Libra. As the earthquake happened, giant Jupiter was only 2 degrees past this position at 16+ Libra. Therefore, Jupiter had just made its first crossing of the WTC Ascendant since 9/11 during December 2004. Keep in mind that before an earthquake hits, there is probably a potent build-up taking place for many weeks below the Earth’s surface.
The most amazing tie between 9/11 and December 26, 2004 involves the Moon. The Moon is the KEY of all keys to influences on the ocean’s tides. We know that the earthquake and resulting tsunamis happened on the day of a Full Moon. That itself created extra havoc regarding ocean currents because the Moon and Sun were on opposite sides of the Earth – creating a tug of war. The Moon was located at 27+ Gemini at the earthquake and then moved to 28-29-30 Gemini in the few hours afterwards when the tsunamis killed and injured so many people. When 9/11 occurred the transiting Moon was void – not making any more major aspects until it left the sign it was in – and located at 28+ Gemini. Therefore, the Moon placements for 9/11/2001 and 12/26/2004 are identical within less than 1 degree of the zodiac! The Moon has a big connection to the past, history, memories, mass consciousness and the collective unconsciousness of humanity. If there is no connection between 9/11/2001 and 12/26/2004 why is the Moon in the same place at both events? What is this trying to telling us about terrorism, politics, and how humanity needs to redirect itself along more spiritual and peaceful lines of universal understanding?
