Thank you for these, and Mark, thank you for listing the
placements as they stand now. I wish I could comment on
every one of them, but there simply isn't time.
I feel strongly that we will still be dealing with the
effects of Katrina in November and much further on, on the
level of "big news"
Draco was considered one of the "serpents:" Ptolemy: "The
bright stars in Hydra are like Saturn and Venus. Saturn in
quartile to the Sun, in aspect to Mercury, in the
neighborhood of the serpents, makes men die from the bites
of poisonous creatures..."
For poison, read contamination; Saturn is entering Praesepe,
the Beehive; here's the Chinese lunar mansion:
Kuei, The Spirits or Carriage of Ghosts, also called
T'ien-Soung, Celestial Punisher, presiding over sickness,
death, extermination, battlefields, horses, soldiers, war
materiel, buried treasures hoarded in wartime, thus
accumulated wealth. M44 was also Tsi-Chi, Piled-Up Corpses,
Tsi-Chi-K'i, Exhalation of Piled-up Corpses (souls leaving
bodies) and Eye of the Sky, (anciently, the eyes of the
Great Red Bird were here) governing watchfulness over wicked
This is also the area just in front of Hydra's head (his
Mundane: Fires, explosions, epidemics, toxic conditions,
intense high energies, explosions, embarkations, invasions,
shipwreck, storms, riots, assassinations, murder; entire
cities destroyed; UFO events, ghosts, insect attacks;
amphibious, shoreline, harbor and riverside events.
(That "entire cities destroyed" came mainly from Pluto's track
through here near the end of WWII: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Tokyo,
Berlin, Hamburg, Dresden, etc.) Now we can add New Orleans.
But it's the huge, looming health crisis that has me
The brutal realities of the health crisis will linger for
weeks to come. New Orleans is now a cesspool that poses
numerous hazards, including outbreaks of hepatitis A and E.
coli. Desperate survivors who ingested spoiled food and
contaminated water could get salmonella, and people could
suffer carbon-monoxide poisoning as they attempt to use
generators indoors. Mosquitoes will breed rapidly in the
stagnant water, and some could harbor the West Nile virus.
About the only good news is that typhoid and cholera are
unlikely, because, experts say, those microbes weren't
present before the storm.
The disjointed nature of the relief effort has only
compounded the crisis. As refugees from the festering
Superdome started arriving at Houston's Astrodome, medical
staffers scrambled to deal with cases of gastrointestinal
illness and dehydration, and screen for infectious diseases.
Pluto (joined by Venus in Oct) is transiting through the
Scorpion/Serpens/Ophiuchus area, which of course are issues
of life and death, medicine and public health. (In China,
the huge outline of stars we call Ophiuchus was a Celestial
The Sept 17-18 Full Moon (25 PS 16) is aligned with Matar,
Eta Pegasi, Theta, 16 and Lambda Piscium and the last stars
of the water from Aquarius' Urn; this is the area of Gula,
the ancient Euphratean Goddess of Medicine who could both
cure and inflict disease. This lunation's tight Sun-Mercury
cnj at 25 Virgo is on the precession-corrected US Neptune,
which semi-octiles the precession-corrected US Saturn.
The sorrowful Pleiades rises.
Venus, ruler of the 1st and 6th at Washington, is in the 6th
square MC/IC in detriment (in China's lunar mansion Kang,
associated with the prevention of illness), square Saturn
(in the Beehive) on the IC (the solstice point of Mars
tightly conjoins Saturn), and Neptune culminates (at the
Saturn Nebula, as Mark pointed out)(there I have epidemics,
famines, natural disasters, crashes, gas explosions,
eruptions, meteorite falls, great battles and slaughters.
Asteroid Pallas, a "mini-Mars" that I have found turns up at
injections and inoculations, is in the 6th, cnj the Vertex,
sesquiquadrate Juno; I would expect that this would mean a
vast number of mandatory inoculations
Oh for more time. Well, I'll leave this for now.
Keep the good ideas and observations coming!
