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.

Election Violence & Uranus-Admetos

Is there election violence just ahead?

The planetary aspects at the U.S. elections on November 8 are disturbing, to say the least.

They certainly suggest the possibility of election violence. It could be either at the polls themselves or in the aftermath of the vote count.

The Saturn-Vulcanus waxing sesquiquadrate contributes to a hyper-vigilant attitude. It’s a “do or die” dynamic that’s essentially looking for trouble. It stays on guard against imagined offences.

The Mars-Admetos waning trine adds to the tension. It signals an urge to take aggressive action against immovable obstacles. There’s a strong possibility that “get out the vote” forces could confront “suppress the vote” resistance.

Election Violence From A Pleasant Source?

And then there’s the conjunction of Venus with the transneptunian Cupido.

It’s just after the Election Day opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange.

Now don’t get me wrong.

Venus and Cupido are two of the good guys in astrology.

Venus is all about love, harmony, money, the arts, and beauty. It’s the feminine mystique personified.

Cupido is connected with community, family connections, and the sharing of common cultural heritage.

So when Venus and Cupido get together it’s typically good. We normally expect social harmony, pleasant connections, and marital bliss.

Venus Cupido S&P High
The Venus-Cupido conjunction marked a trading top for the S&P 500 in December, 2014.

But as this chart for the S&P 500 in 2014 shows, we sometimes get something else.

The Venus-Cupido conjunction coincides with trading tops about 60 percent of the time.

But this time the two planets meet, on Tuesday, November 8, we may get even more negative results.

Venus Cupido signals election violence
The Venus-Cupido conjunction on November 8, 2016 won’t be taking place in isolation. It may even trigger election violence.

This 90-degree dial for the Venus-Cupido conjunction shows the meeting of the two planets at 25º 41′ Sagittarius.

But what’s interesting is not just the connection between those two beneficial planets.

It’s the fact that they trigger the Uranus-Admetos midpoint.

That’s pretty ominous.

This midpoint activation signals shocking social convulsions. We could see wanton destruction, murders, earthquakes, and yes, even election violence.

At the very least, we can expect sudden breakups of trusted associations.

Individuals and factions will be excluded.

They’ll need to learn how to go it on their own.

They may have wounds that take a very long time to heal.

It’s not a pretty picture.

Election Violence and the Markets

Don’t forget. The markets can react to social and political news in dramatic ways.

Election violence could amplify the November Meltdown in equities.

That’s exactly why I hosted a special webinar earlier today.

November Meltdown Webinar
We discussed the prospects for election violence during the live webinar on November 5, 2016.

During that session we took an-depth look at the current planetary stress.

We explored the roots of the election stress.

We checked the horoscopes for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and James Comey.

And we shared solid strategies for profiting in these tense times.

The webinar recording is well worth downloading.

Election Violence in 1876

The election campaign this year has certainly been vicious.

But it’s not the only time that an election got nasty.

1876 election violence
Election violence was rampant in the aftermath of voting in 1876.

The prize for election violence goes to 1876.

Voters went to the polls on Tuesday, November 7, 1876. It was one of America’s most contentious and controversial contests.

The 1876 results are among the most disputed ever. But it’s certain that Samuel J. Tilden of New York outpolled Ohio’s Rutherford B. Hayes in the popular vote.

Hayes got 4,034,311 votes. Tilden got 4,288,546.

After a first count of votes, Tilden won 184 electoral votes. Hayes got 165.

But 20 votes were left unresolved. These 20 electoral votes were in dispute in four states.

In Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina, each party reported its candidate had won the state.

In Oregon one elector was replaced. He had been declared illegal for being an “elected or appointed official”.

Ultimately, all three of Oregon’s votes were awarded to Hayes.

Hayes thus had a majority of one in the Electoral College.

The Democrats cried fraud. Tension and hostility swept the country.

Tilden supporters threatened that Hayes would never be inaugurated.

“Tilden or Blood” became the rallying cry. In Columbus, Ohio, a shot was fired at Governor Hayes’s residence as he sat down to dinner. Supporters marched to his home, calling for the “president”.

Hayes tried to calm the crowd. “It is impossible,” he said, “at so early a time, to obtain the result.”

As incidents of election violence surged, President Grant took action. He strengthened the military force in and around Washington.

 

A look at the h1876-tildenhayesoroscope for the disputed election of 1876 is revealing.

Saturn activates the Mercury-Kronos midpoint, so authoritative communications were in short supply.

With the Venus/Chiron mipoint also getting triggered, harmony and cooperation were difficult to establish.

But most important of all, Saturn also activated the Uranus-Admetos midpoint at the 1876 election. That’s the same combination being triggered now, setting the stage for stress and tension, and possibly even some election violence.

Presidential Election Deception?

What have you heard lately about the presidential election?

Probably a lot.

The news media have been ignoring lots of significant world events lately.

They’ve been choosing instead to devote boundless attention to the U.S. presidential election circus.

And what a circus it is!

The never-ending stream of Republican debates.

Primaries and caucuses.

The latest attack ads and dirty tricks.

And, of course, the latest antics from Donald Trump.

Who Will Win The Presidential Election?

That’s the most popular question, needless to say.

But asking it now is at least a little bit premature.

After all, the voting for the presidential election isn’t soon. It’s still more than eight months away.

The major parties haven’t finalized their nominees yet.

But forecasting is what astrologers are supposed to do.

So let’s review a couple of astrological approaches to figuring out presidential election outcomes.

Astrological Approaches To A Presidential Election

There is, of course, the date of the presidential election itself.

This year it will be on November 8.

We can study the planetary positions for that day, and get some sense of the alignments that may impact the presidential election results.

But the challenge is, the polls are open for a presidential election in the U.S. for many hours. The voting results span many time zones.

That makes it difficult to pinpoint accurate astrological charts to use in forecasting.

A more direct approach, one that is preferred by many excellent mundane astrologers, is to use the time of the presidential inauguration.

By law that’s set for noon on January 20 following the outcome of the presidential election.

A comparison of that inauguration horoscope with the natal charts of presidential contenders often yields useful information.

The Aries New Year and The Presidential Election

There is, however, one additional consideration worth looking at.

It’s the New Year’s horoscope.

In this case, we’re not looking at January 1.

Instead, it’s the astrological New Year, the time that the Sun goes into Aries.

That’s the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere.

It’s the Fall Equinox down under.

When we set that Aries ingress chart for Washington, D.C., we get an annual figure to use in forecasting the entire year ahead for the U.S.

That includes the presidential election.

To do so, it’s helpful to use the 90-degree dial favored by symmetrical astrologers.

presidential election axis at the equinox
The annual horoscope, set for the Aries equinox, highlights the potential for the presidential election when we examine the Node/Zeus axis.

On the dial, we can adjust the pointer to identify the axis of the True Lunar Node and the transneptunian factor Zeus.

This Node/Zeus combination is the astrological signature of cooperative actions in general, and of elections in particular.

And, as the 2016 equinox dial reveals, that Node/Zeus axis is potent.

It resonates strongly with the Pluto/Chiron midpoint (problems and embarrassment created by big money and excessive power) and the Neptune/Vulcanus midpoint (large-scale deceptions and disappointments, plus significant loss of power).

It’s fair to say, then, that we can expect gut-wrenching experiences as we move through the presidential election cycle throughout 2016.

There’s obviously much at stake here.

This presidential election has the potential for shaking up conventional political and governmental structures in some very big ways.

Steps Along The Way

We’ll wait to speculate about the winner of the 2016 presidential election. The right time is after the major political parties have selected their nominees.

And we’ll review the election results when they come in.

But in the meantime, we can use the Node/Zeus midpoint in the Aries equinox chart as a key tool.

It’s an indicator of the important times we should be watching for key developments in the presidential election process.

The planetary transits to that Node/Zeus midpoint are especially critical.

We can look at them not only as direct passages, but also as eighth-harmonic alignments.

For example, there was an activation by Mars on February 10.

That’s when both Carly Fiorina and Chris Christie suspended their campaigns.

The next Mars event is October 4.

Of particular interest are the activation of the Node/Zeus axis by Mercury on February 27 (South Carolina Democratic primary) and April 19 (New York primary).

We’ll also be watching the alignments by Venus on April 9 (Wyoming Republican caucus) and July 28 (the closing day of the Democratic national convention).

And we shouldn’t overlook the exact fourth-harmonic alignment by Hades on June 6. That’s the eve of presidential election primaries in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

Hades may be the most descriptive of the entire presidential election process!
