March 9, 2016 – New Moon – SuperMoon at 18° Pisces – Total Lunar Eclipse. This can bring a greater chance of an earthquake during this period for Tokyo and perhaps other areas of Japan.
The transiting Sun in Pisces in the Seventh House of business relationships, foreign relations the balance of trade and women’s welfare squares Tokyo’s Uranus in Gemini in the Tenth House brings unexpected events, the government and people in authority from March 7 through March 11 (and exact on March 9, an added indicator of a earthquake). Transiting Uranus in Aries conjuncts Tokyo’s Mars in Aries in the Eighth House of death, taxes, which can trigger a sudden and unexpected accident or violent weather-related occurrence. Heavy snowfall, bitter cold, high winds or other weather problems are on the horizon.
April 7, 2016 – New Moon – SuperMoon at 18° Aries. Earthquakes are featured in my astrological analysis for this period, but I don’t see this date as critical. If there was an earlier earthquake in March, a major aftershock could occur around this time. An important astrological point I feel the need to make here, however, concerns transiting Uranus leaving the Eighth House, which highlights revolutions, anarchy, innovations, technology, earthquakes When a large planet like Uranus transits from one House to the next, an 'air-quake' happens causing a matrix shift in energy which is often followed by a major unknown disturbance. This is a year when significant changes are in the offing for Tokyo. When the world turns its focus to limiting energy consumption, recycling and cleaning up the planet, it’s amazing what can be done. Japan and the world are going to integrate ancient wisdom into cutting-edge science and technology to help create a new world as the Age of Light draws ever closer.
May 6, 2016 – New Moon – SuperMoon at 16° Taurus. No earthquakes forecast according to my astrological analysis.
October 16, 2016 – Full Moon – SuperMoon at 23° Aries. Uranus is right on the cusp of the Eighth and Ninth Houses, a very powerful place for transformations, power shifts and the unexpected to occur. It is the ‘air-quake’ energy being released and I see the end of October and beginning of November as a time when an earthquake may hurt Tokyo, but not devastatingly. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn squares natal Mars in Aries in the Eighth House and death is associated with this placement. This is a volatile combination.
November 14, 2016 – Full Moon – SuperMoon at 22°. Taurus will bring a period of utmost intensity for earthquake potential. I cannot emphasize enough the profundity of this placement relative to an earthquake of disastrous proportions.
The transiting Moon in Taurus will conjunct Tokyo’s Sun in Taurus. Transiting Jupiter in Libra at 13° in the Second House of national resources is an especially sensitive point as it is conjunct Tokyo’s Neptune in Libra at 8° and Tokyo’s Moon at 17° in Libra. This 17° Libra position seems to me to be extremely synchronous because in 1923 transiting Saturn had reached that exact same point. Also in 1923, the Tokyo Moon in Libra was conjunct transiting Saturn at that 17° position.
An interesting correlative to this positioning occurs in 2016. Transiting Uranus in Aries conjuncts Tokyo’s Mars in Aries at 16° in the Eighth House of death, losses and international finances. The Sun in Scorpio transits the Fourth House, which rules underground water supplies and weather conditions conjunct Tokyo’s Jupiter in Scorpio at 24° in the Fourth House. Transiting Saturn in Sagittarius will also be in the Fourth House of land opposite Tokyo’s Uranus in Gemini at 19° in the Tenth House of national prestige, the Prime Minister, Power and the public employment rate. To top it off, transiting Pluto at 15° Capricorn is square to transiting Uranus in Aries, which is conjunct Mars. This strong combination portends a major earthquake for Tokyo!
From November 29, 2016, to January 2, 2017, transiting Saturn in Sagittarius in the Fourth House, which reflects nationalism and patriotism opposite Tokyo’s Uranus in Gemini in the Tenth House of the sovereign and their government, Parliament and prestige of the country. The Uranus opposition is exact on December 16.
December 14, 2016 – Full Moon – SuperMoon, at 22° Gemini. This last SuperMoon of the year 2016 signals potentially dangerous times for all Tokyo inhabitants.
