There have been reports in the newspaper that the seismic shock wave from the North Korean nuclear test wasn't anywhere near as big as it should have been (as measured by the South Koreans), and that US spy planes have failed to detect any radiation in the atmosphere above the test site. So it may just have been some TNT that the North Koreans set off. Or it may be the West trying to get N Korea to show its hand by turning them into a laughing stock.
I had a look at North Korea's chart - 10th Sept 1948, time unknown (from Nick Campion's Book of World Horoscopes). No luck there. So I did a chart for the explosion itself - 2.36 British Summer Time, 9th Oct 2006, Kilchu.
The ASC/DESC axis for this chart is 3.34 Sag/Gemini. The chart for the nuclear axis is 8-10 Sag/Gemini. (See my blog of 16th July 'Nuclear Alert'. The nuclear axis is derived from the chart for the first controlled nuclear reaction in 1942, and describes a Sun-Saturn Opposition that seems to be very sensitive to transits.)
So the ASC/DESC axis for the Korean explosion was 5 degrees off the nuclear axis. So there is a suggestion of the nuclear axis here, due to the wide orb. And the ruler of the ASC is Jupiter, which is square to Neptune and in Neptune's House, the 12th. This indicates deception.
This on its own isn't enough, and to get chronological about it, it all began when I was sitting in a cafe (Starbucks!) in Wells in Somerset today, and the question occurred to me, "Was the Bomb a fake?" Time for some horary astrology, I thought. But I didn't have a watch! 5 minutes later I got the time, 11 minutes past one. So I did a chart for five past one.
I know very little about horary astrology, which is a means of answering questions by drawing up a chart for the moment you formulated the question. There's loads of rules around it, it's a very traditional method. I doubt I'll ever get round to learning the rules, but I muddle along with it in an intuitive/commonsensical sort of way, and it seems to work.
So what I got first of all was the current Mars-Eris opposition within 2 degrees of the MC-IC axis. As Lynn Hayes pointed out on her blog the other day (see Astrodynamics Link), this opposition describes the event, particularly the Eris-like quality of one troublesome event causing widespread reactions and repercussions. So this means the chart works as a horary chart, because it has a significant astrological connection to the question. The ASC is at 17.54 Sag, and what do we find 6 and 1/2 degrees away from it? Pluto! - which of course is intimately associated with nuclear energy. Like the previous chart, the orb is rather wide, so it is suggestive, rather than decisive. And the ASC is 7 degrees off the nuclear axis, again suggestive.
And again we have Jupiter as the chart ruler, which of course is still Square to Neptune. So over these 2 charts - the chart for the explosion, and the chart for the time I asked the question whether the bomb was fake - we have this repeated almost-connection with nuclear bombs, and both times the chart ruler indicates deception.
So, for purely astrological reasons, I am drawing the conclusion that it was a fake nuclear explosion.
Weird! We're more used to countries developing nuclear weapons but concealing them (like Israel), not countries pretending to have nuclear bombs but not having them!
