Central Mexico 7.1 Earthquake

Occurring at the close of the August 21, 2017 Total Eclipse Lunar Cycle, 11 hours before the New Moon of September 20 UT and 12 days after the M 8.1 earthquake offshore of Chiapas, Mexico.

Time: September 19, 2017 18:14:38 UTC
(Local Time: Sept 19, 12:14:38 PM CST)
Location: 18.546°N 98.487°W
Depth: 51.0 km depth

USGS Quote: "Over the preceding century, the region within 250 km of the hypocenter of the September 19th, 2017 earthquake has experienced 19 other M 6.5+ earthquakes. Most occurred near the subduction zone interface at the Pacific coast, to the south of the September 19 event. The largest was a M 7.6 earthquake in July 1957, in the Guerrero region, which caused between to 50-160 fatalities, and many more injuries. In June 1999, a M 7.0 at 70 km depth, just to the southeast of the September 19, 2017 earthquake, caused 14 fatalities, around 200 injuries, and considerable damage in the city of Puebla (MMI VIII).

Today (September 19) is the anniversary of the devastating 1985 M 8.0 Michoacan earthquake, which caused extensive damage to Mexico City and the surrounding region. That event occurred as the result of thrust faulting on the plate interface between the Cocos and North America plates, about 450 km to the west of the September 19, 2017 earthquake. Today's earthquake also occurs 12 days after a M 8.1 earthquake offshore of Chiapas, in southern Mexico. The epicenter of the M 8.1 event is located about 650 km to the southeast of today's quake. That earthquake also occurred as the result of normal faulting within the subducting Cocos Plate, at a depth of 50-70 km."

September 2017 critical planetary geometry.

Prominent Planetary Alignments

The sustained planetary aspects with Lunar Nodes is the critical geometry to watch throughout this several week period (the Jupiter-Haumea opposition to Uranus Eris, with Saturn, etc.). It will create strong geophysical resonances whenever it becomes angular; i.e., aspecting a location's horizon plane and/or meridian (ASC-DSC / MC-IC). Referring to the event chart above, note its tight aspect with the location's MC-IC, specifically the MC-IC bisecting the rectangle created by the Lunar Nodes and the Jupiter-Haumea / Uranus Eris opposition. Note also Saturn about to rise, nesting between the ASC and Equatorial ASC (Eq). The Equatorial ASC is square to the MC-IC as well, thus with the critical geometry also aspecting it. The Lunar trigger is the Moon approaching its square to Saturn, within a degree. Note the Lunar Phase Partile (POF) creating a square to Mercury-Mars. This event also occurs not only in the August 21 eclipse lunar cycle, but also in the energized crescendo leading into the following New Moon of September 20.

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.
