Something Strange in China, Jupiter in Virgo and Julian Bond

This is an animated gif showing the craters, the epicenter of the blasts, and then the satellite photo of the same area prior to the blasts. News reports say that the explosions originated in a building, though apparently that’s not true, as there were no buildings at the epicenter. This graphic was researched and produced by Lizanne Webb for Planet Waves.

In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I look at the strange situation in Tianjin, China. I report several facts for the first time — that last Wednesday’s explosion was one of several in that region of China this year; that the blasts could not have originated in a warehouse, because there was none at the scenes of the blasts.

Nobody has explained how chemicals can create explosions so powerful that they leave craters. It’s not easy to form a crater, because the explosive force will dissipate into the air rather than dig into the ground.

I don’t come to any conclusions as to what happen, though I raise the possibilities and look carefully at the chart of the event, which is below. The chart has evidence of meticulous planning, not an accident. I would note something I did not say in the program, which is that we Americans live in a society that spends a trillion dollars a year on the military and weapons programs. There are a lot of possibilities as to what this could have been. With Mercury opposite Neptune in the chart, we need to proceed cautiously, and not believe a word of what we’re hearing in our own media or via China’s state news service.

In the second segment of the program, I look at the current astrology — Jupiter in Virgo, Mercury conjunct Juno and opposite Chiron, Mars quincunx Neptune and Saturn square the Sun.

In the third segment of the program, I look at the astrology of the eminent Julian Bond, who left this plane of reality last week. Julian was one of founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, a Georgia state legislator, a founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center and president of the NAACP. He was one of the great civil rights leaders of our times, and someone I consider to be the voice of reason. His natal chart is the last chart below.

My musical guest is Grandchildren, the Philadelphia-based band.

The top caption is not true. The blasts did not originate in a warehouse. What is interesting is the size of the crater that’s shown, including the repercussion lines that show where the earth was compressed by the force of the explosion, then bounced back, leaving concentric cracks just outside the crater area. Note that there are two huge craters.
