Hiroshima – Extend Of Fire & Limits Of Blast Damage

The example of the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima in astrogeography is only one of innumerable examples for the precision of my astrogeographical world map.  It reveals the perfection of the organizational structures on the plane of immanence or the morphogenetic fields which in astrology we assume to be at work in every single detail of physical reality.

“On Monday, August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the nuclear bomb “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima by an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, directly killing an estimated 80,000 people. By the end of the year, injury and radiation brought total casualties to 90,000–140,000. Approximately 69% of the city’s buildings were completely destroyed, and about 7% severely damaged. The detonation happened at an altitude of 1,900 feet (580 m)” (

The most important planet in the astrological chart for the first explosion of a nuclear bomb  during a war was of course Uranus. There are several reasons why. First of all Uranus is the most important astrological indicator for radioactivity. Secondly his position right conjunct midheaven as the only planet exactly occupying an axis makes his position the strongest in the chart. Thirdly Uranus occupied midheaven the position right above the place of the explosion defined by the IC. Fourthly Uranus at 16° Gemini the sign of US – culture was in exact opposition to one of the 2 astrogeographical coordinates of Hiroshima at 15° Sagittarius. Fifthly as the planet of innovations and the nuclear age in general his position in the chart of the first nuclear bombing is of the highest importance. Sixthly as the god of the sky and the ruling planet of Aquarius the sign of the sky, flying and of airplanes Uranus even represents the indicator for the plane from which the bomb was dropped.

The importance of Uranus for nuclear events in astrogeography can also be observed in the case of the Fukushima disaster. On 12 March 2011 the day when the meltdown of the Fukushima reactor began Uranus ingressed into Aries triggering an exact opposition to the astrogeographic position of the site of the Fukushima reactor at 2° Libra. Read my article on the Fukushima event here.

And apart from his position at midheaven Uranus had more extremely intense aspects:  he was conjunct Mars the planet of warfare and ignition. The conjunction of Uranus with Mars is known as the constellation of mutations and the most intense sudden events. Furthermore the mirror point of the exact conjunction of the Moon with Saturn at 18° Cancer at 12° Gemini  was nearly exactly the midpoint between the conjunction of Mars at 9° Gemini and Uranus at 16° Gemini.

The Sun was conjunct Pluto in Leo and in house 11. As the sign of rulership of the Sun Leo is the most important astrogeographical indicator for power plants and for setting free extremely large quantities of electricity. It`s position in house eleven stands for a place above the ground. At the same time Pluto`s position in house eleven the equivalent of the eleventh astrological sign Aquarius is known for its direct relation with the Pluto – Uranus aspect. It represents one of the most intensely rebellious aspects against the suppression of human potentials by social hierarchies and rules of role conduct. This is how Pluto`s position in house 11 always reveals a highly explosive situation in birth charts of individuals. The conjunction of Pluto with the Sun as the strongest planet and in its own sign Leo the sign of energetical intensity further emphasizes the resonance of the astrological positions with the extreme effects of the bombing.

Astrogeographical resonance coordinates of Hiroshima

Field Level 1 – the supraregional dimension: To understand the supraregional, international dimension of the first atomic attack in the history of mankind astrogeographic field level 1 should be considered. One aspect of the constellation here is at 15° in the fire  sign Sagittarius exactly coinciding with the point of the IC in the astrological chart for the moment of the explosion. This underlines the meaning of the IC as the indicator for the ground on or as in this case over which an incident occurs. Uranus the indicator of radioactivity was at 16° Gemini in exact opposition with this strogeographical coordinate of the City of Hiroshima, and so in direct conjunction with the midheaven (MC) the indicator of the sky above a site. The 2nd coordinate of the bombing site is right on the line of the cardinal divide between the air sign Gemini and the water sign Cancer close to the position of Venus at 2° Cancer.

Field Level 3 – the site itself: The astrogeographical constellation of the area and part of town above which the bomb exploded has both coordinates in highly defensive, durable, strict, conservative, traditionallistic and hierarchical earth sign Capricorn a major indicator of  fortresses as well as of government institutions and of the government in general. The symbolic meaning of this aspect is that the bombing appears to have been aimed at an imaginary stronghold of Japan`s government or even at the defense system itself. Of course Capricorn may simply represent a major indicator for elevated and strategically important positions which could have made it a natural target, The explosion occured above the Shima hospital although the actual target had been the Aioi Bridge only 250 m distant from the hospital. The 3 planets in Cancer (MO,SAT,VE) in direct opposition to Capricorn – 2 of them linked with the Uranus – Mars conjunction through a mirror point aspect indicate the intense threatening of all things Capricorn in that moment. Capricorn appears not only as the indicator for the japanese government but also as a highly probable indicator for japanese culture in general here.

Jupiter over Tokyo: The Hiroshima Event in Relation to the Capital of Japan

The bombing of Hiroshima came with a “healing conjunction” of Jupiter at 26°Virgo with Chiron at 1°Libra with its the half-sum at 28°Virgo conjunct the resonance coordinate of Tokyo. The Hiroshima allowed the Japanese capitulation ending the phase of self-destruction begun under Neptune´s transit conjunct Tokyo and during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour and the Nazi-German attack on Russia in 1941.

The conjunction of the Sun at 14° with Pluto at 10° in fire sign Leo the sign of the sun, light, power stations and astrological indicator for the energy set free by the nuclear bomb took a square position to the 15°Scorpio resonance coordinate of the japanese capital and government in Tokyo. It is remarkable that the Sun was under pressure from Pluto the ruling planet of the Scorpio resonance coordinate of acting like a ruler over Tokyo here.
