Earthquake moved Japan: Uranus on the IC

(Article has been updated to include horoscope of Hiroshima- and extra text on Uranus) Japan is facing a crisis which her Prime Minister today compared to 1945 – where at 08.15 on a sunny morning, the world’s first nuclear bomb nicknamed ‘little boy‘ fell from the sky, effectively wiping Hiroshima off the face of the earth. The suddenness of that event is forever sealed in the minds of astrologers in the image of Uranus exactly conjunct the mid-heaven in the Hiroshima horoscope. Some years later – when Japan gained its sovereignty – the mundane horoscope aligns the country with the Aries Point – O degrees Capricorn rises. The Moon’s North Node was positioned exactly here at the time of the January 4th eclipse.

Remember this axis relates to turning points -and if we use the oldest house system known to us, (the equal house system) which gives each house 30 degrees – then Uranus poised to enter Aries on Friday, was just about to cross the IC when the massive earthquake struck. The IC is the root, the source, the ground under your feet – and as Babara Watters wrote in her Horary Astrology and the Judgement of Events with regard to Uranus in connection to the IC:

“… serious afflictions to the 4th from combinations of Uranus, Neptune and Jupiter may indicate loss of property through storms, floods, earthquakes.” page 64

Uranus transitting the midheaven brought disaster from the above in the Hiroshima horoscope. Uranus transitting the IC – brought disaster from below. Japan clearly resonates very strongly indeed with the planet Uranus. Japan has become almost a synonym for high-technology and modernity.

Clearly Japan’s geographical position makes it vulnerable to natural disasters. The word tsunami is Japanese – and the Japanese people are used to earthquakes. However, word is out that Friday’s earthquake physically moved Japan two and a half meters – while the earth itself is said to have shifted on its axis by  10 centimeters. Is it not more than pure coincidence that the birth of modern Japan is  linked to the most dynamic axis known to astrologers ?

The Equal House System is the system I grew up with – many astrologers choose to use it – and the Faculty of Astrological Studies promotes it.  In his excellent book “The Elements of House Division” – Ralph William Holden concludes: “……of all the house systems available to the astrologer the ancient Equal House method is the more in accord with the conceptual and theoretical foundations of astrology than any of the others…..” page 136.

The Equal House horoscope for the sovereignty of Japan – is Nick Campion tells us – accurately timed. April 28th 1952, 01.30 pm, GMT, Tokyo, Japan (click on image to open in separate window)

    Hallo Liz,

    Als ik met solar fire de horoscoop van Japan probeer uit te draaien krijg ik
    een andere asc en IC, terwijl ik dezelfde gegevens gebruik als jij.
    Ik krijg een leeuw asc,
    Heb je enig idee hoe dat kan, jij gebruikt toch ook SF?
    De zone GMT moest ik wel handmatig inzetten anders kreeg ik Japanse tijd
    Graag hoor ik van je!
    hart gr, Marianne

      Hi Marianne, Heb je ook 13.30 ingevoerd? Leeuw staat bijna tegenover Steenbok – dus een probleem met de tijd invoer lijkt mij het meest voor de hand liggende oorzaak van het probleem.

      Als je 13.30 als tijd opgeeft in Solar Fire – maakt Solar Fire er 1.30 pm van. Maar het is 13.30!!

      Probeer maar – en inderdaad houd de GMT in de gaten. Ik denk dat dit helpt. Laat je het weten? mvgE
