The Astrology of Disasters: “A Hellish Night”—The San Bruno Fire

Smoke from San Bruno Explosion

Smoke from San Bruno Explosion

(Astrology Explored) In what TV Anchor Robin Meade called a hellish night America wakes to news of a terrible gas explosion and horrific fire that at this moment has destroyed 53 homes, damaged about 120, and claimed 28 casualties and at least one life in the bedroom town San Bruno, CA. Pacific Gas and Electric had sent a crew to investigate a gas leak after residents complained of smelling gas, but no action was taken. There are reports that the smell of gas permeated the San Bruno neighborhood where a 24 inch gas feeder line exploded for a least three weeks prior.

Frustrated fire workers were told to stand down after initial attempts to control the resulting fires were hindered by low city water pressure because of the explosion. San Franciso Hospital reports two burn patients are battling for their lives and the hospital is gearing up to treat more burn patients.

The LA Times reports:

Huge orange balls of flames were billowing into the nighttime sky. Residents reported a huge shake, as if an earthquake had struck when the blaze broke out . . .

While San Bruno deals with this tragedy, finger pointing is already starting at Pacific Gas and Electric who is no stranger to litigation because of unsafe business practices. In 1994 an investigation by Erin Brockovich led to the biggest settlement on record for civil class action suit. Pacific Gas and Electric had dumped 370 million gallons of cancer-causing chemicals into unlined ponds in Hinkley, California.

But what makes San Bruno the scene for such an accident?

Though long settled by native Americans, then annexed as a Mexican territory as part of the Spanish mission system, the real growth of San Bruno occurred after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire.

The date of incorporation for San Bruno is December 23, 1914 as reported by the City Clerk of San Bruno on the City Clerk’s page of the San Bruno website.

While we have no time for the date of incorporation, we do have the time and date of the explosion September 09, 2010, at approximately 6:15 PM. Since we have the timing of the event, the event is at the center of wheel while the planets for the chart of the city of San Bruno is on the outside.

While many of us are aware of the Cardinal T-Square involving Uranus, Saturn and Pluto it is telling how the Sun of San Bruno hits Pluto almost exactly in that configuration and its Moon hits Uranus.

Neptune rules natural gas and gas leaks and is involved in this manner. San Bruno’s Moon sits on the Uranus/Jupiter conjuction. Uranus/Jupiter makes and inconjunct to transiting Venus/Mars and Venus/Mars makes a trine to Neptune/Chiron. Neptune on its own is bad enough but coupled with Chiron signals long festering wound, which may explain why the gas leak was not acted on when first reported.

The Moon, Venus and Pluto appear to be prominent in the timing of this event.

In the Ingress, Lunation and Eclipse charts an afflicted Neptune indicates marine disasters, dam breaks, tidal waves, gas leaks, vermin infestations, contagion, political instability, fraud, corruption and other elements of distortion . . .

Just a day prior, was the New Moon in Virgo in opposition to the Moon of San Bruno, setting up the events of the next day. On September 9 Pluto the planet of the underground takes control. Venus moves to 1 degree of Scorpio, the zodiac sign ruled by Pluto. This Venus exactly sextiled the San Bruno Sun and trined the San Bruno Pluto. Notice that the event Pluto and San Bruno’s Pluto are in opposition.

With all that Plutonian energy involved you can be sure we’ve only heard just the tip of the iceberg in this explosive event.
