Jewish Cemetery, Szeged

Urania astrology magazine, in an 1880 issue, reported that on October 25, 1879, there was a quake in Szeged, Hungary. We do not know if it was related to the building of a dam in the area or not, but there were a lot of rains with subsequent destruction mentioned for that time period. It is possible that the earthquake was like the St. Francis Dam catastrophe in California forty years later, but we cannot be sure for lack of information. Looking at the wheel below, nothing seemed to strike me, even with the TransNeptunians — I think it’s too much information — so I used the Uranian dial instead to pinpoint the culprit.

Uranus and the Trans Neptunian Planet Admetos are conjunct in the Twelfth House of Virgo

There are many planets in fixed signs i.e Taurus and Scorpio, and if we included the transneptunians to the equation, then all three signs of the fixed quadrature have planets, giving it a strong emphasis.  Earthquakes tend to happen with a planetary preponderance of fixed signs, particularly when the opposites of Taurus and Scorpio are in play.

Below is the 90º dial version of the same chart.  Dials are what the Hamburg School of Astrology prefer.  Kepler software created this dial. I let Kepler take the defaults., but the arrows highlights the earthquake with the hard aspect of Admetos to Uranus.

Uranian Astrology calls conjuncts “hard aspects”.  The dial points to a hard aspect between Admetos and Uranus.

Admetos is the sixth of eight transneptunian planets. Its glyph is a material cross within the glyph of Mercury.  It is a very slow moving, so builds up power over a period of time..
