Astronomical Earthgrid Spacetime Mapping of the
Solomon Is. 7.8 Earthquake

Solomon Islands



The Solomon Is. 7.8 Earthquake occurred on Dec 8 UT (Dec 9 LT) near the island of Makira It was 41 kilometres deep and 69km WSW of Kirakira. A wave of more than 60 aftershocks above magnitude 4.5. occurred in the two days following leading into the Gibbous Moon, and then subsided.

A magnitude 6.9 earthquake occurred the following day after a 7.8 earthquake destroyed homes. Both quakes triggered a tsunami warning on the island nation, but were lifted a short time later. The Saturday morning quake occurred at 6.10am (8.10am, NZT). It was 10 kilometres deep and 90 kilometres WSW of Kirakira.

Note planetary aspects to the location's meridian nodes (MC-IC axis). The Horizon plane nodes (ASC-DSC) are in a near exact aspect to Earth's Precessional Cross. Note Mars triggers the event transiting the IC. See EGM Introduction (home page) for more information on mapping planetary aspects.

Excerpt from the November 29, 2016 Lunar Planner

Ceres Direct & the New 89-year Uranus-Eris Synodic Cycle

Significant turnings now occur in the Ceres-Uranus-Eris opposite Haumea alignment, in the crescendo leading into the December 10 Gibbous Moon. Ceres makes her direct station on December 10 (Dec 9 MST), completing her retrograde in a very tight conjunction between Uranus and Eris.

Uranus and Eris are also both stationing, with Uranus returning direct on December 29 and Eris on January 9, adding somewhat of a pensive quality over the couple of months ahead. The pre-Gibbous Moon also triggers this event on December 9, making it more palpable, and geo and bio-resonantly significant. The Uranus-Eris synod (Sun-Uranus-Eris alignment) also occurs on December 10. This marks the start of the new 89-year Uranus-Eris synodic cycle. The Sun also conjoins Saturn. These combined planetary configurations can produce exceptionally strong geophysical (seismic) and biological planetary resonances these couple of days (Dec 9-10)....

The "Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary," made available just before each New Moon, articulates the opportunity for growth in consciousness each lunar month offers throughout the changing phases of the Lunar Cycle. It is based in "astronomical star-level astrology." Exploring alignments with individual stars and constellations is much like one would naturally experience by living and sleeping under the starry heavens. The Monthly Lunar Planner is available for a small subscription fee—merely the price of one good Cappuccino per month.

The rest of the Lunar Planner web site, with many educational resources, is free and available to everyone. Please explore and enjoy.
