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.
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
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.
