Talk for NCGRLA Meetup:
The Uranus/Pluto Square May Seem Over, But....
Thursday, October 15, 2015
Location: Du-Par's Restaurant, 16120 Ventura Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 91436
UPDATE: Thirty-five attendees got their first taste of
Dwarf Planets Eris, Makemake, Haumea, and a few more, and no one ran out screaming into
the night! So I deem this a resounding success. Enjoy these artifacts of the experience:
Most astrologers haven't paid too much attention to the new Dwarf Planets that Caltech's Mike Brown and others have discovered in the last 15 years. Speaker Sue Kientz is about to change all that, as she has recently published the book MORE PLUTOS that analyzes 10 of the largest of these bodies, plus one small guy that is remarkably bright. Kientz will introduce these important objects, and then focus on the most massive, Eris, and the fourth largest, Haumea, as these two orbs are about to complete an opposition. Even more worrisome, Uranus is moving to one end of that opposition: conjunct Eris and opposite Haumea. How bad might that be? Here are some hints:
- In World War II, when the allies invaded Normandy and began tanning Nazi hides, Mars was conjunct Pluto -- and Haumea.
- When the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Sun was conjunct Pluto -- and Haumea.
- When the 2004 Tsunami hit Indonesia, India, and Thailand, killing hundreds of thousands, the Sun was square -- that's right, Haumea.
- When Haiti was struck by the 7.3 earthquake in 2010, the Sun was square -- you're getting the idea, Haumea.
We astrologers need to know about Haumea, and Eris, and Sue Kientz will present some slides of when in the past we were blindsided by events because our telescopes hadn't yet found these incredibly potent, distant worlds.
