Earthquake Southern Calfiornia

The Los Angeles area experienced what is being called a 5.4 earthquake this morning. That's pretty dinky as earthquakes go but good practice for people who are new to California. Anyway, it's not the Big'Un ... yet.

This reminds me of the sleazeball landlord in Santa Cruz who filed an insurance claim for plumbing breakage after a 5.4. Truth is, the plumbing was already broken. The guy couldn't even rent the place before the quake. 5.4'ers are great for getting things fixed through the Insurance Company. Welcome to California.

Chino Hills Earthquake, 29 miles SE of Los Angeles, 5.4

July 29, 2008, Chino, CA 11:42 am PDT

Sun 8 Leo; Moon 1 Cancer; 18 Libra ASC; 20 Cancer MC; NN 19 Aquarius

It looks like there were a couple of serious looking oppositions hitting the angles about an hour before this Earthquake. They're not on the angles which I'd prefer to see.
  • Mars at 18 Virgo opposing Uranus at 23 Pisces. That's what we like to see for an Earthquake. good old Shock and Rock. They're crossing the H6-12 Cusps.
  • Moon at 1 Cancer (H9) is opposing Pluto (H3) at 29 Sagittarius. These are very widely squaring Uranus. That certainly adds to the tension. Especially with an Eclipse coming up at the end of the week.
  • Also Venus at 21 Leo is opposing Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius still and they're still hanging out on the Nodal Axis.
  • The Sun-Mercury conjunction in Leo is unaspected by Ptolomaic aspect and is angular in the 10th House. That's probably an irrelevant detail.
  • Jupiter in Capricorn is conjunct the IC from H3 and is trining Saturn, which is ruler of the IC.
This has a lot of earthquake elements but doesn't really stand out until you look at the previous Earthquake that hit this area (according to the news right now, and hopefully I've copied the info correctly) back in 1987. The similarities are striking. They may be particular to this certain area.
  • The Libra Ascendant is the same within a degree. The 1987 chart has a conjunction of ruler Venus to the Ascendant.
  • The Angles of both charts are Cardinal. Moon is also Cardinal. In 1987 it is conjunct the IC in Capricorn. Today it was in Cancer just past conjunction with the MC.
  • Mars is also in Virgo at 26 Virgo and is also in challenging aspect to Uranus at 24 Sagittarius. (Reminder: today's Mars is at 18 Virgo)
  • Neptune-Chiron and the Nodal Axis in challenging aspect with each other. In 1987 Neptune 6 Capricorn was opposite Chiron 29 Gemini. This opposition squared the 3 Aries NN. Today Neptune, Chiron and NN are still in conjunction.
  • Pluto is moving Rx between where Uranus in Sagittarius and Neptune in Capricorn were in 1987, so those degrees are being stirred up.
  • Both charts have "almost" Grand Squares.
No singletons in either chart. No out-of-bounds planets in today's earthquake but the Moon out of bounds at 26 17'11" for the 1987 quake.

At this point I'm tired of waiting for this thing. Something's just gonna have to explode pretty soon and let the air out of the jets for once and for all. There won't be any electricity, I might be dead or pinned under a beam, all the transplants would go back to wherever they're from, there would be nothing more from Out the Comet's Ass. Sounds like a Mel Gibson movie that's been waiting for Mel Gibson for the last 30 years.
