Astrology, Events and Places: The Tianjin Explosion on 12 August 2015 in Astrogeography
The Tianjin Explosions on 12 August 2015 around 23:30 CST occurred at a container storage station at the Port of Tianjin in the Binhai New Area of Tianjin, China. Hundreds of people were reported injured in the blasts. The blasts`s magnitude was 2.3 and 2.9, with the resulting fireballs reaching hundreds of meters high. There were at least two explosions which were felt several kilometers away.
Astrogeographic position for field level 3 which describes how the area is embedded in the town of Tianjin: the exact location of the warehouse for hazardous chemicals of Ruihai Logistics wasn`t easy to find. That`s why I`m not providing data for field level 4 which would be too inacurate in this case. For field level 3 the area is located in the last decade of the 2 Mercury signs Virgo and Gemini which by astrological definition are in a natural square position with each other. The square of the 2 single aspects indicates the possibility of a conflict of extremely careful and self – protective reflexes in earth sign Virgo the sign of reason and storing goods with the hunger and curiosity for new discoveries in air sign Gemini the sign of distribution, contacts, intelligence and communication which can well be evaluated as equipped with a tendency for imprudence.
The time for the astrological chart as calculated above is not exact. Some early reports named the exact time as shortly before 0:00 but the common versionto be found in the media is “around 23:30”. As this was the moment when the ascendant changed from Taurus into Gemini it can be assumed that the explosion did not occur before but most probably after 23:30. So Gemini and it`s ruler Mercury and Jupiter (Zeus . god of lightning and indicator for arsonists) which was conjunct Mercury in Virgo and finally Chiron the ruler of Virgo transiting in Pisces are to be examined as the causers of the explosion. This coincides with my astrogeographical calculation from my astrogeographical world map which sees the site as located in the combination of Virgo with Gemini for field level 3.
The Mercury -Jupiter conjunction because in opposition to Neptune in Pisces is to be seen as a situation in which manipulation is to be considered as at least one of the main causes for the catastrophical blasts. The tendency for over estimation of one`s abilities is a clear characteristic of the conjunction of Mercury the planet of intelligence with Jupiter the planet of knowledge especially when located in house 5 in a classical aspect of gambling. Jupiter´s role as a triggering factor is even further emphasized by the fact that he had just changed signs by moving from Leo into Virgo – one astrogeographic coordinate of the warehouse site – on the day before.
Secondly the ruler of the things going in the warehouse was Chiron which together with Neptune was in Pisces the sign of dreaming, sleeping and illusions – a sign which marks the opposite reflexes of Virgo the sign of fear and carefulness. Pisces rather tends to rely on beliefs, spiritual protection and mystification. This is the apsect of Pisces which is its strongest quality but of course also greatest weakness. The process of the transit of Chiron through Pisces between 2011 and 2019 so marks a phase of carelessness as far as important reflexes of self-protection in Virgo are concerned. The Tianjin incident is so to be seen as a climax of this process.
I want to say something about the conjunction of Moon located in Cancer with Mars in Leo both in house 3 the house of breathing. I have seen people interviewed on the news in german TV who reported heavy acidity in the air which made breathing hard for them. Mars and Moon conjunctions are known for being related to acidity. The Moon and even more so because located in Cancer has the role of the mucuous membranes here whereas Mars in fire sign Leo stands for the attacking heat and chemicals.
