At 12:33am EST, just a short time after the Moon transited Saturn, an earthquake in the Kuril Islands registered 7.0 on the Richter scale, according to the information at the U. S. Geological Survey web site, which records places, times, and magnitudes of earthquakes. It also corresponded with severe aftershocks at the major quake in Italy.
It is important to remember that when there are earthquakes on earth, there are often earthquakes in people’s lives and dramatic events in the world. It is best to remain calm and peaceful during this type of aspect and not to contribute to the chaos by getting upset. It is also a time when we may be more likely to get upset and cause ourselves further problems and expand difficulties. The value of astrology is in knowing that planetary events may be making shifts in our world and to just stay calm and focused and if a situation arises that needs our attention, to handle it calmly or give it a rest until the roller coaster energy clears and then go back and pick up the thread again.
