7.2 Baja California Earthquake

The Easter Bunny can't blithely stomp around like he used to. He created a major 7.2 earthquake in Baja California on Easter Sunday about 40 miles from the U.S. Border. The earthquake was felt about 200 miles up into California and Arizona.

It's Tuesday now and reports say that there have been about 500 aftershocks.

Sunday's earthquake was felt all the way up the California Coast to Ventura County. Many reports say that it was felt up in Santa Barbara but I was in Santa Barbara and didn't feel a thing and I can tell you that there are a lot of really high people who probably feel dizzy all day. The weather was really strange, though. The day before was beautiful and sunny, then all of a sudden a rain storm came in. The next day was very windy. I know there's an official "earthquake" weather and can't remember which one it is. Thought it was the freaky wind thing, just depends on the time of year. I do know that there was more weird weather in other parts of the country.

There are some cool videos out there of people eating Easter Eggs and squeezing Easter Bunnies and suddenly running for cover. Lots of David Hockney images of swimming pools with water sloshing out. Almost nothing showing what happened at and near the epicenter. California needs its own independent cable news channel.

Two people have been reported to have been killed. I send my condolences to the people who lost someone and to all who are struggling without water and power and blocked roads right now. The news reports up here suck.

According to the USGS the town closest to the epicenter is Guadalupe Victoria, Baja, Mexico. I used Mexicali because there are 3 Guadalupe Victoria's in Mexico listed on Solar Fire and I don't have enough time to figure out which one this was.

The big thing to notice is that this earthquake sticks with the Cardinal Sign theme that I talked about for this year for California earthquakes. Although I don't really know what I'm talking about I have been saying that the months after the Equinoxes and Solstices are very vulnerable for earthquakes this year in California. They hit both the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto t-square and the Eclipse Points. The Haiti and Chile earthquakes were much bigger but, hey, the year is only half over.

In January, California had a major earthquake in Eureka up at the far North end of the state. This Baja California earthquake hit the low end of the state. Parkfield's in the Center of the State. It's the place that for a long time had regular earthquakes every 20-25 years. Last time was 2004, but that came late. Back in my post on this series I did find a 100 percent correlation between Jupiter's placement in Cardinal Signs and this series. Jupiter will enter Aries (Cardinal Sign) beginning of June and will be in conjunction with Uranus, one of the natural rulers of earthquakes.

This chart has the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto t-square placed off the angles in the Resources Houses. The Moon is at the last degree of Sagittarius (Aries Point) conjunct Pluto in the 5th House.

Uranus doesn't rule any of the angles, which knocks my interpretations way off. But the Neptune-Chiron conjunction in Aquarius is conjunct the Pisces Descendant and is placed on the Axis part of a Kite figure. Neptune rules the House cusp that it is in conjunction with. The Kite contains a Grand Earth Trine between Virgo Ascendant trine Mercury-Venus conjunction (rulers of 2 angles, H1 and H10) trine Moon-Pluto (H5).

The Moon and Sun are prominent in the chart as the Sun is unaspected to other planets from H8 and the Moon is out of bounds (H5).

The Aries Sun (H8) in this chart is squaring the Nodal Axis (NN Capricorn), however. This is important as this earthquake is sandwiched between two Eclipse Sets in Cancer/Capricorn.

Uranus and Mars are trining each other and conjunct the H8 and H12 cusps to the degree. That's probably irrelevant.

Jupiter is also unaspected in this chart in Pisces. It is actually about 10 degrees away from conjunction with Uranus. These two will be pretty much connected for most of the rest of the year. As I mentioned in the Parkfield Series Earthquake post, Jupiter tends to only strike that area when its in Cardinal Signs. It will move into Aries in June same time as Uranus so perhaps Central California will be hit. Hopefully not. The kids born during this time sure are going to be smart.

I've said that Southern California tends to have earthquakes in Winter (Capricorn)-Summer (Cancer) and Northern California has earthquakes in Spring (Aries) and Fall (Libra), but this turns everything upside down. The Eureka area didn't surprise me because I sort of lump that area in with Oregon Coast which seems vulnerable during January/Capricorn.

According to the USGS, this particular area has been struck by similar 7.0-7.2 earthquakes back in 1940, 1934, 1915, and 1892.
