Cholera Outbreak in Haiti

A Cholera outbreak which broke out in Haiti on Oct. 20, 2010 in the town of St. Marc is said to have been imported to the island. There have been no records of outbreaks in Haiti before this going back to mid-20th century so it appears that the disease has been brought in from the outside air workers rather than from bad habits of the natives. The outbreak occurred in a town which is north of Port au Prince where the destruction from the January earthquake occurred. So far around 4,700 people have been hospitalized and around 330 have died. Scientific tests are being done to determine where the disease was imported from. Protests are now taking place asking Nepalese Peace Aid workers from the United Nations to leave the country. Apparently Nepal has suffered recent outbreaks of the disease which brings high fevers and watery diarrhea. And carriers often don't know they are carrying the disease.

Since a new group of soldiers arrived at the site on Oct. 9 it is very interesting to think that perhaps some peace keeping United Nations workers would have brought the problem in. At that point the Sun was in conjunction with Mercury (communicable disease) and Saturn (governance) in the peace keeping sign of Libra. These were inconjunct (Health problems) Neptune-Chiron in Aquarius (Water bearer). The Haiti natives are protesting to have the U.N. workers removed from the country. (Man, I wish we could openly protest things like that in the U.S.)

Venus, which rules Libra, had just turned Retrograde the day before in the sign of Scorpio (waste, water) and was in conjunction with Mars (fever) and the Moon. This pair was inconjunct (Health issues) Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces.

The first illnesses were identified on October 20 just as the Moon was passing over the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction.

Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune are all related to having good intentions. Of course, with Saturn squaring Pluto and the North Node in Capricorn, just about anything can go wrong. This pair brings exhaustion and loss. It's not good for international relations or family relations for that matter.
