The California Fires

On October 9, 2017, California fires are burning out of control - especially in Northern California in the wine country. Hundreds of homes have been burned. Many of them are in the Santa Rosa area.

When we have events such as this that affect many folks over a large geographical region, I always look to see if an eclipse has been activated. In this case, the September 16, 2016 lunar eclipse in Pisces has been activated by transiting Mars in Virgo (by opposition). Mars symbolizes fire, and it is in a square aspect to both the the Sun and the Moon in the eclipse chart. Mars is activating this eclipse now by opposing the eclipse point. Transiting Saturn (in Sagittarius) is activating this eclipse in this chart by square aspect. And, transiting Chiron (in Pisces) has been activating this eclipse by conjunction. So, we have a t-square involving this eclipse point. It’s a very intense and frightening configuration.

In the events chart for the formation of the state of California, Mars is at 11 Libra and Mercury is at 13 Libra. The Sun and transiting Mercury conjoined both in the past few days, and this is the time that many of the fires across California formed. We generally have some of these natural fires in California every year, but they don’t all expand and burn so rapidly and so out of control. Mercury has played a part in this because of the wind and how that has added to the problem. In California’s progressed chart, Mercury is at 9 Aquarius and Mars is at 12 Aquarius. On occasion, we get the effects of an eclipse prior to that eclipse. We will experience a lunar eclipse at 11 Aquarius on January 31, 2018. Progressed Mars is also conjunct the August 7, 2017 lunar eclipse in Aquarius and in opposition to the lunar node in California’s formation event chart.
