15 December 2012
Ok, this might be a case of confirmation bias (i.e. using only examples that confirm your theory) but I have been doing the Ba Zi charts (chinese horoscope) of the days of when some of the more recent natural disasters have occured and it's quite startling (for me, at least) how much the energy of the day resembles the occurences and even how it's being talked about by the media.
2012 itself was meant to be a year of TOO MUCH WATER (read floodings, rain, tsunamis). And this year definitely reflected that. In November, there was another round of flooding in the UK. The chart for those days showed TOO MUCH WATER falling on SOGGY EARTH. If you read http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/nov/27/rain-eases-northern-england?intcmp=239, the floods have been attributed to "saturated ground alrady waterlogged after one of the wettest summers in recent times ..."
Besides massive rain and flooding, there have also been a lot of earthquakes in 2012. If you study the elements, when there is too much water in a Ba Zi chart, the earth energy is weak. Weak earth is not a good support. If you are weak, you give way easily which is why this year has been particularly prone to earthquakes. We have seen at least one 7.0 magnitude eathquake every month this year (with the exception of May and June).
Are we going to have some respite in December? Nah. The chart for December is basically a raging ocean (Heaven water). It will wash everything away. Nothings going to stand in its way, It'll be hard to control. Tsunamis and earthquakes seem very likely. The hexagram is literally thunder below a lake (earthquakish energy) which then transforms to lake over lake (excess of water). So the energy for the month is an earthquake that has the potential to transform to a tsunami and if a tsunami does hit, it's going to be very hard to control.
The recent earthquake in Japan struck on 7 December 2012, exactly on the date of the start of December in the Chinese calendar. There was a small tsunami and there were fears of a repeat of 2011 tsunami but thankfully, the tsunami didn't materialize. If it did, there's a high chance there could have been lots of damage (human and otherwise).
Scarily, if you study the hexagram, the tremors show an origination from the Northeast and the earthquake in December shook the Northeast coast of Japan. YIKES
And what about Super Storm Sandy? That's another post altogether!
