A 6.5 Quake

The  pattern of extreme weather shows no signs of relenting as two quakes struck Fiji. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says there is little threat of a tsunami after the initial 6.5 magnitude earthquake.  They occurred  at 2.20pm FJST (Fiji Summer Time).

Where was it?

The quake, at a depth of 104 km (64 miles), was south of the Fijian islands in the South Pacific, the Hawaii-based PTWC said. The second, and smaller, quake registered 289km north of Nadi island and around 579km deep.

926 Fiji Quake

The most aspected planet is the Moon, naturally enough.  The least is the Sun.  Earth signs dominant the chart; there is little water (Neptune in Pisces is it).  The last eclipse was the total eclipse of August 21st and the last lunation is the New Moon on September 20th.  The fall equinox occurred on September 22. 2017 at 16:02 EDT.

What about Nadi?

Nadi has about 12,000 inhabitants evenly between indigenous Fijians and Fiji-Indians who had emigrated there.  The waters are warm and inviting but the lagoons have some of the most dangerous critters in the sea, including the man-eating saltwater crocodile, the hunting of which is banned.

Our header image is the USGS intensity map for this earthquake. It shows that because the quake was centered far from land, Nadi was spared.   There is no data for the PNG quake.

Also struck was Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea was also struck by a 6.0 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday morning, no times recorded . When I get it, I will create a chart for that quake. All three are on in the Southern Hemisphere,  no lives lost, at least from what the latest reports, and both are  in the Ring of Fire– so is California.

Five years later, on September 11,2022, Papua New Guinea had a tremendous quake, hitting 7.6 on the Richter scale,  that took four lives.

William Lilly on Earthquakes & Eclipses

–according to William Lilly, astrologer par excellence, earthquakes are quite common after an eclipse. Reading them and understanding them though is still mystifying, so I’ll be putting up information on the quakes and their astrological charts, but not always, at this point, saying much. Think of this as an ongoing study.


The original chart for the Fiji quake was incorrect and showed the chart with a time zone of around Cyprus, Greece.
