Uranus Hurricane Intensifies Dramatically

Hurricane Dorian, this week’s powerful Uranus Hurricane, is intensifying.

We’re calling it a Uranus Hurricane here. That’s because of the noteworthy meeting of Uranus lines on our astro-map for the storm.

As we noted a couple of days ago, this combination could make for a stronger storm.

That’s exactly what’s happening.

Earlier today Dorian was bumped up to a Category 5 event. It now has sustained winds of over 185 mph.

That’s massive.

In fact, it’s so overwhelming that it’s tied for the biggest storm on record.

Its winds match the force of the legendary Labor Day Hurricane of 1935.

According to Andrew Buncombe of The Independent, Dorian has “gusts of up to 220 mph and a sustained speed of 185 mph. When it struck land twice on Sunday afternoon first in the Abaco Islands at then close to Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco Island, it equalled a record set by a Labour Day storm from 1935. That storm – which occurred before hurricanes were given names – ultimately left major damage in its wake in the Florida Keys.”

A Uranus Hurricane Cycle

1935.

For most people, that may just seem like far-away history.

But for an astrologer, it strikes an immediate chord.

1935 was 84 years ago. And 84 years is a Uranus orbital cycle.

So Hurricane Dorian is definitely a Uranus Hurricane!

The Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 was the most intense Atlantic hurricane on record until Hurricane Gilbert in 1988.

It was the first know Category 5 hurricane to strike the United States.

The storm caused catastrophic damage in the upper Florida Keys. A storm surge of 18 to 20 feet swept over the low-lying islands. Strong winds and the huge surge destroyed nearly all the structures between Tavernier and Marathon. The hurricane completely obliterated the town of Islamorada.

After tracking up Florida’s west coast in the Gulf of Mexico and devastating much of the Tampa Bay area, the Labor Day Uranus Hurricane made a second landfall at Cedar Key, Florida. It later caused extensive damage in the Florida panhandle, Georgia, and the Carolinas.

A total of 485 people lost their lives. It took six months following the Labor Day Hurricane  to recover all the bodies.

Looking At The Astrology

It’s clearly too early to tell how Hurricane Dorian will compare with the events of 1935. Even so, the Uranus Hurricane connection is quite compelling.

Here’s the horoscope for the Labor Day Hurricane landfall 84 years ago;

Here’s the chart from earlier today when Hurricane Dorian made its first landfall:

The key points, of course, are the positions of the Sun (8 to 9 degrees Virgo) and Uranus (5 to 6 degrees Taurus).

There’s much more to do in the way of detailed analysis here.

But for now it’s time to go check the weather forecast. This Uranus Hurricane isn’t over yet.

Hurricane Dorian Meets Admetos

Hurricane Dorian has dominated the news for the past few days.

That’s especially been true here in Florida. The state is currently projected as being right in the storm’s cross hairs.

Hurricane Dorian Is Big

Hurricane Dorian is currently a category 4 storm. It’s packing winds of over 150 miles per hour. As it crosses over warm ocean, it’s expected to intensify.

A potential landfall in Florida is still some days away. But panic has already set in.

Florida’s governor has already declared a state of emergency for the entire state. He has advised citizens to stock up with at least a week’s supply of food and water.

That’s sent folks scrambling to the stores. It’s a big boon for retail grocers.

Patty and I stopped in at a local supermarket earlier today. It was a routine visit for us.

We were stunned to encounter wall-to-wall people jamming the aisles.

The store had put a limit on the purchase of bottled drinking water. Customers were allowed just two 24-bottle cases each. And while we were there, the store manager got on the public address system to direct employees:

“All associates need to keep a close eye on customers. When they check out, don’t let them back into the store. We’ve already had people check out with two cases of water. Then they’ve sneaked back into the store so they can get back in line and try to buy more. Remember, there’s a strict limit of just two cases per customer!”

Consider a couple of facts. We live on the west coast of Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico just south of Tampa. Hurricane Dorian is in the Atlantic Ocean approaching the east coast of Florida.

So panic here seems a bit over the top.

Patty is a Florida native. She and I have lived together here for over 23 years. So we tend to take storm preparation more or less in stride.

But Florida has seen a huge boost in population in recent years. Many of our neighbors have never experienced a hurricane first-hand.

So maybe we should expect panic buying.

The Astrological Perspective

Hurricane Dorian is big. But astrology suggests that it may not end up as a big problem for Florida.

Shortly after news of the Hurricane Dorian developed, I cast the storm’s horoscope.

I used the time of the first official notice of the original tropical depression, at the longitude and latitude of the reported sighting.

Here’s what the chart looks like:

Hurricane Dorian Event

With Uranus triggering the Mars/Hades and Aries/Moon midpoints, Dorian clearly means business. Its destructive potential may include loss of life.

What’s interesting is projecting Dorian’s planetary positions and aspects onto an astro-map of the Caribbean.

The lines on the chart are for planets rising, setting, and culminating.

I’ve circled a key point on the map. It’s the meeting point of two Uranus lines. The Uranus setting line crosses the line for Uranus square the Midheaven in eastern Dominican Republic.

Because Uranus is associated with storms and high winds, this geographic zone could prove significant.

As the storm neared that area, it changed direction. It moved more toward the north and northwest.

It may also intensify dramatically.

The exact effects remain to be seen, of course. But there’s one more factor to consider.

What Will Admetos Do?

Less than 24 hours from now, the transneptunian factor Admetos will be making a retrograde station. It’s exact shortly before 9:00 p.m. Eastern tomorrow, on August 31.

Admetos Retrograde

That’s a powerful event. The Sun/Mars conjunction adds even more force. We’ve already examined its potential impact on the markets.

It could also impact the weather.

As Hurricane Dorian consolidates the power of the Uranus zone near the Admetos station, the effects could be quite dramatic.

This storm is clearly a force to be reckoned with. But this planetary combination may make it even more unusual than some other storms.

We’ll be keeping an eye on things. Even if we’re not rushing to the grocery store for panic shopping.
