Amritsar, India - train hits crowd, kills dozens [Vehicular]

October 19, 2018, 7:10 PM, Amritsar, India ADDENDUMN 10/20: Wikipedia now has a page. It lists the exact location as 31N37'51" 74W53'50", so all the charts below need minor tweaks. They give the timing as "around 18:45 IST," but I'm inclined to trust the local paper's report of 7:10 PM, especially s...

Amritsar, India - train hits crowd, kills dozens

October 19, 2018, 7:10 PM, Amritsar, India This is such a big event, I'm already moving it to its own thread: https://solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=2636 The basics: At least 60 people died, and over 100 more were injured, when a commuter train ran through a crowd of hundreds of people standing o...

Re: Pluto and Business

All Rims have this leaning. It's basic to the quadruplicity. It's as true of Cancer (for example) as of Aries.

Additionally, even if we don't ascribe a Mars rulership to Aries (which we might anyway, regardless of the Pluto factor), Aries is going to be Mars-like in the sense that it is anti-Venus.

Re: 2018 Libsolar

Sun has now entered Libra. Game on! Here is the tighter version of my interpretation of it, as written for the October monthly forecast. This ingress, overlaying mid-October to mid-January, is volatile. "Combative" doesn't do it justice: It is more intensely confrontational. Angular Pluto brings man...

Re: US forecast Sep 19 - Oct 16, 2018

Moon enters Capricorn in a few hours, wrapping up another month. Wow, we had more surprises and hits on the last four weeks than in somec years. Mostly, the month was all about Mars-Uranus. I also correctly got the shift from the Arilunar week, when everyone was in a flurry about Kavanaugh, to the C...

Re: JAE 2018 SSR

Today we get the first field test of how some patterns of the new SSR will work during the year. One of the features of the chart is an exact Venus-Mars square on natal Saturn. This is partile. It's all tied into natal Moon, but not quite partile. So, that means that there is a triple Venus-Mars-rSa...

Re: "Trip chart"

At 9:52 am we pulled out of the 7-11 near our home to hit the road to Flagstaff. This week is vacation part 2, heading for the Grand Canyon and then Arizona'best wine country.

Jupiter broke the horizon shortly before and my Venus degree (but not my Venus) was rising as we hit the road.

Re: 1556 Shaanxi earthquke [Quake]

I'm rechecking everything for the other coordinates I just found, 34N30'01", 109E18'00". Both longitude and latitude are within a degree of what I used before, but it might make a small difference, e.g., in the Caplunar. Year/Quarter: Capsolar Functionally the same: Sun is 1°44' and Venus 1°15' from...

Re: 1556 Shaanxi earthquke [Quake]

All four lunar and all four solar ingresses are valid at any given time. Its just that several of them can be expected to have such "quiet voices" that they aren't relevant in practice. Nonetheless, we can go back to the primitive days when Bradley was first discovering these methods, and look at al...

Re: 1556 Shaanxi earthquke [Quake]

First impressions... the easy stuff... None of the ingresses have mundane aspects that don't exist ecliptically. (That's a factor that has been found moderately valid, as it is locale-distinctive.) No non-primary aspects hit angular planets in the charts to alter their typical working. Adding extra ...

I think we need to keep this one around as an event from which we can learn something.

Except... it shows well in the Week chart and really well in ...

Re: My daily transits September '18

A rather humorous example of one of the experimental transits occurred yesterday. Transiting Mercury crossed the 9th cusp of my new SSR set up for Milwaukee and, same day, we boarded a plane to leave Milwaukee and fly home.

That one's pretty on-target!
