While the news is the pandemic, there isn't much else happening in the world, but here is the (tardy) thread for recording specific May events.

The Supreme Court unanimously threw out the convictions in "BridgeGate" (two aides to Gov Christy shut down the bridge from NJ to NYC to punish NJ mayors who wouldn't pledge support to Christy's re-election. They were convicted under fraud statutes, and the court said, nope, wasn't fraud. Was a bad thing to do, but wasn't fraud.

Announced at 10 AM May 7, 2020 at Supreme Court, Washington, DC.

Interesting twist and actually good law.

I was watching yesterday and today because the Cansolar's Venus-Saturn opposition rotated to CanQ angles. I don't think this qualifies. (One might expect, under current circumstances, some non-speculative announcement concerning significantly higher death tolls etc. Haven't see that so far.)

The lesser ingresses (which often run the day for minor events) don't even show it, unless you count that the Libsolar still has both Pluto and Jupiter transiting square its MC.

Ah, but relocate this to Trenton - the NJ capital - and the CapQ puts ingress Venus on an angle, so somebody is throwing a party there tonight (and Mercury crossed Capsolar Ascendant just to show that there would be a piece of paper of some importance today - and CTTAI involving traffic). The Trenton Liblunar has Uranus 0°12' from Dsc, so they may have been genuinely surprised.)

Hollister Fire

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon May 11, 2020 12:42 am

No clue yet how bad this is going to be. The Hollister fire began about 2 AM 5/10/2020 near Hollister Ranch, in the Gaviota, CA area, which is at 34N29, 120W20. By 4 AM it had burned 200 acres. By 7 AM it was 10% contained. It was still blazing tonight amidst strong winds.

Fire season is off to a start!

In the CAPSOLAR, Mars squares Asc 0°11'. Neptune squares MC 0°27'. I'd targeted the area in the Capsolar forecast for heavy fires. I think this is just a slim start for the year.

CapQ Descendant has a triple conjunction of transiting Pluto on Capsolar Sun-Saturn. The Cansolar, which has Mars conjunct MC, has transiting Uranus 0°27' from Descendant.

An alert from the county 911 at 7 p.m. stated the failure of the Sanford Dam was imminent.
The dam never actually breached. The water from the Edenville dam overtopped it and washed a large hole out of the earthen berm over Wednesday night-Thursday morning, as it was designed to do in case the Sanford lake flooded. The concrete structure of the dam has not apparently been damaged.

The plan is to let all the water drain away, assess the dam, and try to rebuild it, according to the homeowners association that's buying the dam.

Thanks, I thought it was only topped, not breached, but the "continuing coverage" kept kicking the conclusion down the sidewalk. - The main event is Edenville's breach.

Corpus Christi naval air station shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 21, 2020 4:57 pm

May 21, 2020, 6:15 AM, Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, 27N42, 97W17
https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/21/us/naval ... index.html

Shooting at the air base with the shooter now dead (but a possible second one). FBI said it was a terrorist act. The time 6:15 is "about" the time it started and security forces responded; the base was put on lockdown.

Immediately, s we enter a new Jupiter-Pluto cycle, we're back in the time of terrorist attacks - cultural, religious attacks intended to politically destabilize etc. Jupiter-Pluto is all over these charts! However, to my surprise, today's Venus-Neptune square is not highglighted.

Pakistan International Airlines Flight 8303

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri May 22, 2020 8:45 am

May 22, 2020, approx. 2:37 PM, Karachi, Pakistan, 24N54'42", 67E11'16"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakistan_ ... light_8303
https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/22/asia/pak ... index.html

A Pakistan International Airlines plane carrying 107 people crashed in a dense residential area in the city of Karachi. At least 11 people have died (though they are still sorting out whether those were people on the ground or people in the plane: at least some were local residents).

The plane was heading for landing in Karachi and ell off radar. The pilot radioed mayday, citing technical problems.

The time of the crash is from New York Times.

Year: Capsolar (Dormant.)
Year: Cansolar (Dormant.) Moon-Uranus.

Bridge {+1}
t Neptune op. Capsolar EP

Quarter: Arisolar {+3}
(An outstanding example of PVP aspects. Mercury alone is angular - the theme is right but we don't get any details - until we count the PVP aspects which, among other things, bring the distinctive Mercury-Uranus into the mix strongly. One could add an exact Moon-Mars conjunction tied into the rest if we stretched the orb just another degree.)
Mercury on Dsc 2°02'
-- Sun-Neptune conj. 0°02' PVP
-- Mercury-Uranus sq. 0°26' PVP
-- Mercury-Neptune sq. 0°31' PVP
-- Sun-Mercury sq. 0°31' PVP
-- Uranus-Neptune conj. 0°51' PVP
-- Sun-Uranus conj. 0°53' PVP

Including planets farther from the PV than we usually use:
-- Moon-Mars conj. 0°11' PVP
-- Moon-Sun conj. 0°35' PVP
-- Moon-Neptune conj. 0°37' PVP
-- Sun-Mars conj. 0°46' PVP
-- Mars-Neptune conj. 0°48' PVP

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco fire

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Sun May 24, 2020 10:39 pm

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco, CA
May 23, 2020, about 4 AM Pacific, a fire broke out in a crab processing operation in a warehouse on Pier 45, eventually becoming a four alarm fire with over 150 firefighters on scene. It destroyed at least a quarter of the buildings on the pier before being contained Saturday afternoon and eventually brought under control and extinguished. One firefighter was injured with a severe cut to his hand. There were homeless people in the area, but no injuries have been reported.
The SS Jeremiah O'Brien, a historic World War II ship moored at Pier 45 next to the warehouse that caught fire was saved.

Edited to add:
This fire destroyed more than 5 million dollars worth of fishing gear, including crab, shrimp and fish traps. Crab pots stacked to the ceiling of the warehouse that burned were totally destroyed, wiand the Dungeness crab season will be affected.
