arch 11, 2011, Japan has experienced the worse earthquake in Japanese history, an 8.9 earth quake! Since I have had a Japanese website for the past few years I take personal interest in the Japanese culture and well being. In the predictions that I wrote for my Japanese website, I gave a dire warning! This prediction was in the February newsletter: “Japan is under a dangerous planetary period now and must be aware of the potential for earthquakes. Between now and summer there is the potential for earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. Neighboring countries can be a threat in terms of the potential for warlike attacks. Overall this is a violent month around the world and Japan seems to be right in the path of destruction”. As a predictive mundane astrologer, I look at the planetary patterns forming in the sky and apply them to the birth charts of countries to predict world events. The chart I use for Japan is for the new government that began November 3rd 1946 after World War II.

This gives a look at the planetary patterns set in the sky for each month in relationship to the Sun and Moon. Rahu and Ketu. The Sun and the Moon are the parameters and basis of astrology from earth. and the placement of the nodes in the 1st and 7th houses affects this country personally. because everything here is based on the geocentric focus. The nodal axis pertains to karma and destiny. Astrology is based on the Sun and Moon in relationship to our Earth.The most significant feature on March 11th 2011 is transiting Mars at 19 degrees of Aquarius exactly square Japan’s lunar nodes. Another predictive tool to focus in on each month of the year is to calculate the chart for the New Moon. The 4th house represents the homeland. meaning how it is perceived on earth. Transiting Mars (19 degrees) and the Sun (26 degrees) are in the 4th house. .

Moon. the north node (Rahu) and the south node (Ketu) are the measurements of the Moon as it crosses the ecliptic. . Only the astrological houses in which the planets fall will change according to the longitude and latitude of different locations. when we see dangerous planetary alignments. The lunar nodes. So you can see the measurements we focus on are all in relationship to the Sun. Moon and Earth. This means that the astrologer must be aware of the potential for earthquakes during this month. The New Moon chart sets the relationship of the planets in our solar system to the parameters of the Sun. A New Moon chart is a chart calculated for the precise date and time the Sun and Moon come to the same exact degree monthly. The New Moon chart for March has the lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu at 5 degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini. Uranus is the planet that rules earthquakes. Planet Uranus is (square) at the exact midpoint of the lunar nodes. where and which day exactly? I look to the eclipse paths and then put in the longitude and latitude of these countries within the specific eclipse paths. we look at the eclipses and the New Moon charts. As Japan was in the eclipse path in effect. and Earth—close to the ecliptic.This is why I use the New Moon charts to predict the monthly occurrences on Earth. the band we mark as the Sun travels from our vantage point around Earth. Moon and Earth. The astrological patterns and aspects are the same worldwide. I calculated the March New Moon for Japan. at 5 degrees of Pisces. We read the longitude and latitude in relationship to the ecliptic. Astrologers will make their predictions by first erecting mundane horoscopes set for the longitudes and latitudes of specific locations when the New Moon is exact. The eclipses are the lineup of these three features—Sun. the question is. As to where the hot spots are on Earth. inserting the longitude and latitude of places on Earth where we want to make a prediction. However. The planets and fixed stars are measured according to the ecliptic.

to the physical ground of the country. including Neptune. The planets here are in Aquarius. which is in the 12th house of loss and endings. destiny and karma. A s an astrologer I have a deep respect and love of the ancient star lore and the deep wisdom of the ancient astrologers. Mars. History has been built literally and figuratively on the alignments of these fixed stars. I look to the 4th house to determine earthquakes. The 4th house represents the land of a country and the matters that influence it. transiting Mars (which activated the last New Moon chart at 19 degrees of Aquarius) is exactly square the midpoint of the lunar nodes (Rahu and Ketu). Mars is the planet that causes dangerous events in astrology. Ketu is in the 1st house and Rahu is in the 7th house. The lunar nodes determine fate. the New Moon occurs in the 1st house. Looking at the chart for Japan. cities and buildings have been built to align with the stars. Mars was at 19 degrees Aquarius. which is in the 8th house. From the Egyptians. Mars rules war. the 1st house signifies the physical body of any chart. And Saturn is 8th from all the planets in the 1 st house. On the day of the earthquake. and the 4th house represents the homeland. Sun. which is the most personal house pertaining to the self. and the ruling planet of Aquarius is Saturn. fire. destruction and endings. danger and accidents. Mars has always been the planet in effect in sudden dangerous events. The myths and star lore of all cultures tell the . The wisdom of our forefathers in astrology teaches of the myths and stories of our constellations and fixed stars. and again. Mars is in the 4th house of Japan’s chart.In this chart. as it is the most personal house. American Indians to Washington DC. Mars and the Sun were exactly conjunct the planets of this New Moon chart. action. the degree of the New Moon (both Sun and Moon). The next step to understand where a problem may occur is to look at the charts of the countries in question. The 8th house is the house of death. anger. Greeks. Taurus is the sign on this house and the ruling planet of this house and Taurus is Venus. Moon and Mercury. and the Sun is conjunct Mercury from the New Moon chart. and in this case.

and these fixed stars are usually described as a unit. The change has been very slow but continues to evolve. These fixed stars have rich meaning and depth. I look to the degrees of the fixed stars to make sense of this astrological mystery. the right and bright eye of the bull. their placements in relation to the constellations and fixed stars has been slowly moving backwards in the zodiacal band we use to relate to the planets. for this is the star for military and war. but because of precession of the equinoxes. Aldebaran is conjunct Japan’s Rahu. These fixed stars oppose each other from around 10 degrees of Sagittarius and 10 degrees of Gemini in the Tropical zodiac used in Western astrology. [it] corresponds to floods. Antares is also described as Martian nature. As mentioned. Tropical or Sidereal. the only difference is in the sign placements. and Aldebaran was in Taurus. “It pertains to sudden incidents and unforeseen events and potential accidents. “In world events. This reverts back to around 17 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus in the Sidereal zodiac used in Vedic astrology. For Rahu and Ketu. two thousand years ago. Sidereal (Vedic) astrology takes into account the continual slow shift backwards of the constellations. Antares is of violent character and significant for violent death” (Ebertin). It is no wonder that Japan has this deep karmic destiny. and have much to teach us whether it is the lunar mansions of Vedic astrology or the Greek and Persian myths. the planetary patterns. the Tropical zodiac and the Sidereal zodiac were the same. which are exactly opposite in the zodiac. This means as the planets transit in the sky. danger and loss through water” (Ebertin). This is a royal fixed star of Mars-like nature. we have the differences between the two zodiacs.same stories of mankind. The fixed star Antares was in Scorpio. drowning. These fixed stars give the missing link to prediction in world events. The main feature of this fixed star is danger and loss through water. are conjunct the fixed stars Aldebaran and Antares. This means that the signs and constellations in which the planets travel are changing. No matter which zodiac is used. Antares is opposed Aldebaran. which are always exactly opposite each other. But. this year activates the fixed star Scheat globally. . Japan’s Ketu is conjunct Antares and Rahu is aligned with Aldebaran. I found that Japan’s lunar nodes were activated during this earthquake on the polar axis of the extreme and potent fixed stars that have been noted throughout history. Whenever I want to get the deeper meaning of any placement in the heavens. Antares was the portion of the sky denoted for war by the ancients in the sign of Scorpio. aspects and conjunctions to fixed stars will still be the same. For here is where the nodal axis was during the conclusion of World War ll. As I noted. Tropical and Sidereal astrology lined up in the same constellations two thousand years ago. The nodes of the Moon (Rahu and Ketu) in Japan’s birth chart were triggered by this recent New Moon and Mars.

Let me remind everyone that this is one of the worst fixed stars in the heavens and is noted for causing “catastrophes. Some believe a solar eclipse is in effect for a year. Usually. it is the next eclipse that is six months ahead that pinpoints the active spots. 2011 covers the northern parts of China. the fixed star Scheat is currently at 29 degrees of Pisces. mining accidents. The eclipse paths are where the eclipses are the most visible. Alaska. Last year. which places it at around 5 degrees of Pisces.As I wrote this March newsletter. The next eclipse in June. for it is about extreme misfortune. The places on Earth where the eclipse paths travel will be the places on which to hone in. and airplane accidents” (Ebertin). The degree to Uranus is exactly on the fixed star Scheat. it is important to note where the next eclipse path runs. This has been the exact experience globally. I had a very ominous sense the world was about to experience great loss and destruction. Here is a quote from my March newsletter predictions: “03/14 Sun enters Pisces: As the Sun enters Pisces it is nearing Uranus and Jupiter. Middle East. Mars and Mercury will activate this severe marking in the zodiac.” So here the eclipse path that is in effect clearly pinpoints Japan as a dangerous spot now because of the next eclipse. which in the Sidereal system used in Vedic astrology. which as students of astrology we used to memorize this fixed star as "sh_t" because it was one of the worst fixed stars of all. and now the Sun. The eclipse of January 4th. The main fixed star activated now is Scheat. The most significant aspect of the New Moon for March was Uranus exactly on the midpoint of Rahu and Ketu. In Western Tropical astrology. reverts backwards ~24 degrees in the zodiac. the Earth changes will affect the Southern Hemisphere. Uranus sits at 5 degrees of Pisces. and further north into Mongolia. and drowning. Japan. In the New Moon chart for March. and across Canada into Iceland. Uranus and Jupiter were on this degree. as this has already been the case. particularly New Zealand and Australia. I believe this will involve extreme weather and earthquakes. It is called the weeping degree. I made note that the next eclipse path is the one that usually has influence now. This early part of Pisces is rich with powerful fixed stars that will flavor this time as a time of dissolution and destruction. where the November 2011 solar eclipse path crosses. The solar eclipse paths are the areas on Earth that will be the most affected during that year. Actually. shipwreck. but this means these events will continue throughout the spring. After the summer. This will induce a time where there is more rebellion as the planets are lining up in the sign of Pisces which instigates religious beliefs with a spirit of revolution and change. an eclipse is active for a solid year before it occurs! I believe . Here is a quote from my World Predictions 2011: “Since the eclipse paths are clues to where the earthquakes are probable. This is why I always include the eclipse paths in my “Predictions” so that we can get a sense of where earthquakes and global unrest will occur. such as floods. suicide. 2011 runs through Europe. murder. Uranus is the planet of earthquakes and social rebellions.” The tricky part of prediction is to hone in on where the upsets will occur on Earth.

anger. In the ancient Hindu scriptures. There is still more to come concerning destruction. As to making astrological predictions for the future of the world. with aspects of angles and patterns. the physics of astronomy. the world is in a place of rebellion. It seems the powers that run the world are losing their ultimate power for the people are retaliating against the government and demand change and accountability on their end. and the study of the fixed stars.” Astrology involves the mathematics of geometry.” And as to the coming month of April. 2011 Jupiter will square Pluto for the last time. which will give us a glimpse into the workings of our universe and lives. This is why astrology is the “Divine Science. Astrology is the “Divine Science” of our planet and humanity. the “Vedas. “On February 25th.” . Countries with a strong Pisces influence will suffer these consequences”. so fasten your seat belt for this will be a bumpy ride. You see. The following prediction points to the unforeseen overthrown governments of Egypt and Libya. There will be more disaster on Earth as Mars will conjoin Uranus at the end of March and April.earthquakes and world catastrophes will become more and more commonplace. the New Moon chart looks very volatile. This combination actually represents earthquakes. So planet Earth shakes with all the emotions of this angry and hostile planet. hostility and emotional discord as there are more and more people that populate this world. And this is what I wrote about this New Moon chart in my World Predictions: “Mars conjunct Uranus indicates a certain amount of volatility and sudden upsets within this year. Pluto represents power and Jupiter is expansion but the square aspect creates obstacles. Many truths concerning corruption will continue to be exposed as the people become wiser to the facts and begin their demands for the truth. the planetary patterns and alignments for the year are to be calculated. then broken down to monthly New Moon charts combined with the eclipses and their paths. This will be an eventful year. The Pisces New Moon chart is the predictor for the coming year globally and my concern is the exact conjunction of Mars with Uranus. indicating the obstacles surrounding the powers that run our world. and Jyotish is the “Eye of the Vedas. There is more related to what I originally wrote in my “World Predictions 2011” before the year began.” astrology is depicted as the eyes of man. calamity. The spiritual symbology of the planets gives life meaning and purpose. and angry warlike extremes with the convergence of planets this year. and the mythology of mankind handed down from the ancients of all cultures.
