at least in the US: tornadoes, floods, wildfires, the
2007 Atlantic hurricane season's first named storm
(Andrea) coming weeks before the official start of the
season. Plus there's been a lot of other ugliness
(riots, massive and/or ugly demonstrations, shooting
incidents, nasty international disputes) throughout
There's a couple of asteroids that are in conjunction
right now, Storm and Torricelli (which seems to be
associated with trouble and crisis; it's named for an
Italian scientist, Evangelista Torricelli, a
contemporary of Galileo who invented the barometer).
They're both currently at 28 Taurus, aligned with this
supernova (and quincunx Pluto).
