6.0 Napa Valley Earthquake

Napa suffered a pretty large earthquake Sunday morning. No deaths but some injuries and a lot of damage. I think maybe even the post office was red tagged.

 I was sort of thinking maybe the Bay Area would skip the earthquake triggers that have been in effect. California seemed to be  coming out of the big outer planet tsquare pretty well with no big earthquakes in populated spots . But, I remember from the little research that I did on the Hayward fault that past earthquakes in the East Bay seemed to happen when an outer planet was at mid Scorpio. That's where Saturn is right now (at 18 Scorpio) along with mars 17 Scorpio. Tomorrow the conjunction of these two will be exact.

Other influences which could show earthquake activity are:

Uranus c. South Node in Aries;

 Uranus square Pluto (has been going for a really long time).

Also, the new moon is approaching in Virgo and may have influenced the water table? What do. I know about these things?

Napa Valley Earthquake 6.0
August 24, 2014. 3:20 am Epicenter American Canyon, California

Sun 2 Virgo(h2); Asc 22 Cancer; Moon 19 Leo (h2); MC 6 Aries

Moon 19 Leo rules the chart and Venus 15 Leo rules the Ic and these two are in conjunction in the 2d house. Venus/Moon squares mars/Saturn in the 5th house.

Uranus/SN are up in the 10 house so the Nodal Axis is angular.

Jupiter 9 Leo is angular as well in the 1st house of the chart.

James Wright Foley, RIP

ISIS has released video of the beheading of an U.S. Journalist, James Wright Foley. Foley was kidnapped from outside an Internet cafe in Binesh, Syria on Nov. 22, 2012. He was held captive since that along with other journalists. One other journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff, was seen in the same video apparently (I didn't watch) and his life was threatened as well.

Here's a video of James Foley's parents talking about their son:  http://news.yahoo.com/james-foley-parents-video-183644711.html

James Wright Foley
b. Oct. 18, 1973 place?

Sun 26 Libra; Moon Cancer, Leo; NN 1 Capricorn

One can see from the emphasis on cardinal signs in the main elements of Foleys chart that he was an initiator and a leader. His Libra Sun was peace seeking. It disposits to Venus which is at 11 Sagittarius showing a desire to travel and work with other cultures, perhaps in an extreme way as Venus is out of bounds in the chart at 24 degrees 43' S declination. Venus may also be unaspected depending what sign the Moon is in. There was an eclipse back in April which directly triggered Foley's Sun.

I was eager to look at the placement of Mars since Mars indicates violence. Mars is placed at 4 Taurus Rx natally. This means that Mars, like the Sun, also disposits to Venus in Foley's chart. Mars stands out as it is retrograde. I checked to see if it had come out of Retrograde by secondary progression yet and amazingly it turns out that mars Stationed direct at 26 Aries the year before Foley was kidnapped.  This is exactly opposing his natal Sun and Uranus conjunction. The combination of these 3 energies together can bring about shocking, rebellious, and volatile events.  There is a huge conflict between the energies of the sun in Libra and the Mars in Taurus which are nonviolent, and the combinations of these planetary energies together.   The day that Foley was kidnapped, transiting Mars was at 4 Capricorn which is in conjunction with his natal North Node and also transiting Pluto at 8 Capricorn.

Foley had two Yods, or "fingers of God".  These are triangle aspects which combine 2 inconjunct (aspects which require adjustment of some kind) with a sextile (easy aspect indicating talent). Both yods include Mars inconjunct Neptune 6 Sagittarius. Mars is apex of one yod and Neptune of the other. This probably shows the martyrdom which Foley got caught in. I'm not clear how to interpret yods but think they play an important part in Foleys life. On the day of Foleys kidnapping both the transiting Sun and progressed Sun were in conjunction with natal Neptune (martyr) in Sagittarius (international affairs, journalism).

Venus-Jupiter conjunction and the MegaMillions Jackpot

If there's anything at all to Astrology somebody ought to win tonight's Lottery. The Jackpot has risen to 160$ Million George Washingtons. Venus, planet of money, is conjunct Jupiter, planet of good luck in the sign of Leo, games. The square to Mars in Scorpio, could make the Luck swing either way. Either to compulsions and bankruptcy, or, well, anything having to do with other people's money. Maybe an IRS agent will win. The clerk at the store said that you have a better chance of becoming President than you do of winning the Lottery. I bought my tickets anyway.

Last weeks Bells

My negativity for yesterday's market results was wrong. The Market was up almost 186 points and ended the week higher than it started. So that's what Moon-Pluto conjunction in the 4th house in Capricorn can do!

 But what a ride. Everything that happens is completely different from what happened the day before. Up Monday, down Tuesday, up Monday, down, Thursday, up Friday. All this after last weeks losses. Like being whirled through a dryer at the laundromat.

The Sink or Swim Opening Bell

Dow sold off 75 points today. Lots of up and down. People sell. People buy. Mostly people sell. Guess Saturn in the 2d house indicates a "managed sell off".  Saturn either wants a bargain or high quality, preferably both.

Nodal axis is now angular with north node in Libra in the 1st house and South Node in Aries in the 7th house conjunct Uranus.  Where's all that crazy weather we were told would happen?  Market needs a distraction. At least insurance companies are happy if they don't have to pay for damages. Uranus makes for unpredictable relationships.  All the angles are now loaded. Venus is in cancer up at the top of the chart in the 10th house. Venus is women, so wonder what Janet yellen is thinking. There has to be a crash soon after a new federal reserve chairman comes in. Funny how the job never seems to age them the way it ages the president.  I feel like I've aged 5 years in the last week.  10th house is governance and also old established firms. Looks like the blue chips are going down too. Maybe they'll raise the interest rates earlier than expected. Looks like they're prepping.

Pluto is also on an angle, down at the bottom of the chart in the 4th house in the sign of Capricorn.  More Capricorn influence. That's business.  Tomorrow the moon will be in conjunction with Pluto. That's a pretty reserved but emotional influence. Playing cards close to the chest. Ought to be cautious. Lots of ambition. Ruthless. All this might focus on any 4th house activity like real estate, the public, family, mothers, land, homeland, defense mechanisms, plumbing, food, water, etc.  Sink or swim.

Virgo still rising and ruler mercury still in conjunction with the sun. Public health, public service, jobs, market activity, technology.

How to go apeface.

The Eat Mexican Food Bell

Doing this to calm myself down.

Tomorrow's Opening Bell still has the Virgo Rising. Virgo is an earthy, mental sign prone to anxiety and worry. Speaks straight from the hip. All kinds of experts are saying the market is going to tank. Lots of prophets predicting doom. Why don't they interview a few CEO's to see what they think. I read one article written by a guy who said that he would love to buy back into the market when it drops to 15300. So, I guess that's what they figure the market is worth?  Nobody's excited about Disney's earnings although the market did go up a smidge, 13 points today and not down 140.

Chart ruler is Mercury still up in the 11th House one degree conjunction with the Sun and trining Uranus (shock, surprise) in the 7th House. That's intellectual and inventive. Interesting announcement today that a couple of expected mergers didn't pan out just as Uranus, planet of sudden reversals, moves into the House of Partnerships. Maybe tomorrow will bring another surprise. Better weather for technology stocks. Or maybe they will all tank tomorrow.

Moon is the only planet tomorrow that changes house in the opening bell chart. Moon will be in its own house 4 down at the bottom of the chart. That's comfortable. Food, real estate, the public, babies, your Momma. Moon is on the last degree of Sagittarius (Law, Education, Publishing, International Affairs). Moon in Sagittarius might bring some news about Fast Food Restaurants or Immigration or women shooting bows and arrows.

Venus is worrisome. She's squaring the Nodes and is ruling the H2 through Libra. She is up in the 10th House trying not to rule, most elevated planet. The stock market is having serious self worth issues.

The Nodes will pass into the 1st house either on Friday or by Monday. They like to create a big event when they hit an angle but I'm not sure what kind of event.

 The planets in the 2d house, Mars and Saturn in Scorpio, are squaring the planets in the 11th House, Sun, Mercury and Jupiter. That's a lot of activity surrounding Resources since the Stock Market is all about Resources. Self-Worth related to having cash over Hopes, Wishes, Groups of people, "Build it and they will come type of thinking."

Not with Pluto in the 4th house right now squaring Uranus in the 7th. Don't like to see what those 2 do when they hit the angles for the next couple of weeks. Moon will be in conjunction with Pluto on Friday. That scares me a little. Very watery. Maybe somebody will come up with a new idea about how to solve debt.

 Saturn and Uranus are inconjunct, they both like a little panic but with this aspect they can't really coordinate what they're panicking about. That's adjustments between the old guard and the new guard. Jupiter in Leo shouldn't allow anything to crash. Jupiter's just my blind spot though.

Have keyboard, will type.

Waiting for the Grand Trine Bell

The market so far today has been crashing. Yesterday brought a nice break and it went up about 70 points. Wish I could look at opening bell charts and see if they will show the difference. The moon is the big changer as it moves quicker than the other planets. The Moon today moved into the 3d house which shows announcements. Seems that earning reports are related to moon type of companies. Family retailer target gave a bad earnings report and the market dropped. Family media company Disney will give earnings report after the market closes. This might be positive for tomorrow's market as the moon, 16 Sagittarius, will still be in the 3d house in a grand trine with Uranus 17 Aries (h7) and Sun in Leo (h11).

These charts are definitely showing the sentiment that cash is king.  Venus, ruler of cash, is up at the top of the chart and squaring the nodal Axis in the 2d (ruled by Venus) house -8th house.  The 2d and 11th houses are still loaded. It looks like maybe this planned by some intellectual puppet masters, merc-Jupiter in 11th squaring Mars. Sun squaring Saturn in same houses.
