Many years ago (probably over 15) I have seen a related article published on an astrological magazine, in which the author argued with passion that it is wrong to search for the exact hour of signing of the protocol of London to devise a natal chart of our country. And that because that specific Act was nothing else than a cold legal document, which gave birth to the Greek State on February 3, 1830. As it was legal, it should be considered valid from the very first seconds of this date. The exact time of signing had little significance for either the foreign nations signing the letter, but more importantly - for the Greeks who just learned that since February 3, 1830 they actually had a State ! So, this is just a purely legal document acting retroactively. And congratulations are due to this man for his both simple and reasonably good idea. An idea, that unfortunately at the time I first heard it, I did not pay any attention to, but one I see now so clearly confirmed after so many years.

To continue I will present information, the corresponding useful links and the maps for five of the most significant earthquakes that have hit our country in the past. I think most of us have lived at least the last two. What needs to be noticed is that all five earthquakes have major disasters in common as well as a heavy toll in human lives. Natural earthquakes are all of tremendous size,but as you know there have been similar size earthquakes in the past, which, either because of the large focal depth or because of the position of the epicenter did not cause considerable damage; which however is not the case for the five earthquakes I will present.

And we start going back 109 years to January 10, 1899 (New Calendar January 22, 1899) 21:36 pm (local time)

South Peloponnese: Catastrophic Earthquake - unknown intensity and precise focusing

(Source text and additional information about the earthquake here : http://papaflessas2.blogdrive.com/

...It was 21.30 10/01/1899 the cold and the freeze were unbearable, a hollow sound,a roar and the earth began to tremble, terrified residents were thrown out in the courtyards and streets, the houses began to collapse, followed by a second vibration, even stronger, at 21.36 all houses collapsed burying in the ruins their belongings and together their dreams. The destruction was total and 70 village houses collapsed, followed by dozens of aftershocks even stronger, those were at 21.56 to 21.58 and 22.30. The earthquake was felt throughout the Peloponnese, the inhabitants of Pylos, Kyparissias, Messina, Kalamata, Tripoli, Pyrgos fearful left their homes and stayed up all night in the fields...

The magnitude of the earthquake has not been recorded officially, but considered as one of the most powerful earthquakes that have taken place in our country. Also a publication dated January 23, 1899 of the famous American newspaper Washington Post reports:

EARTHQUAKE IN SOUTHERN GREECE : A Number of Villages Destroyed and People Made Homeless: A strong seismic disturbance was felt this morning about 9:30 o'clock throughout the Peloponnesus, especially in the southwestern departments of the peninsula

Washington Post : EARTHQUAKE IN SOUTHERN GREECE

Obviously the reference time of the earthquake as the 9th and 30 morning is wrong because it contradicts the reports in the local press that put the hour of the first seismic vibration at 9 and 30 pm.

August 12, 1953 - Kefalonia - 11:24 am (local time) - Disastrous 7,2 R earthquake razed the island

The devastating earthquakes that struck the Ionian islands in 1953 lasted for almost 2 months, August and September (smaller aftershocks lasted for more than 6 months. The result was a complete destruction of Kefalonia, Ithaca and Zakynthos. The disaster in Zakynthos was concluded with a great fire. Greece at that time was passing a difficult time as after war, occupation and civil war it was having the first reconstruction efforts. The first quake was centered on Ithaca on August 9, followed by strong aftershocks for three days to trigger earthquakes throughout western Greece and then came the largest earthquake (above 7 degrees on the Richter scale) on August 12 with a focus on Kefalonia. There earthquakes were the more disastrous ever in Greece with more than 470 dead and the wounded and missing people about 2500. This two-month seismic sequence was concluded by two earthquakes in October and November in Lixouri in Ithaca, but there was nothing standing in order for them to destroy it.

A strong earthquake (M = 7.2) struck on August 12, the Ionian Islands. They were preceded by numerous earthquakes, two of which were disastrous (9 / 8, 11 / 8). Kefalonia, Zakynthos and Ithaca suffered total destruction. Of the 33300 homes on these islands 27659 were completely destroyed. 455 people were killed and 2412 injured. Disasters caused in Lefkada, in Aetolia and Elis. The highest intensities were observed in Argostoli, Lixouri, Balsamata, the Asprogeraka in Havdata and St. Cheer Kefalonia (IX - X), in Volimes (IX +) and the town of Zakynthos (IX). The largest aftershock (M = 6.3) was at the same day as the main earthquake. (http://www.conceptum.gr/seismopolis/ellada_seismoi.html)

The main shock of the earthquake sequence in the Alkionides had a magnitude of 6.7. In Athens (pop. 3,000,000) at an epicentral distance of 77 km, the main shock and its strong aftershocks ruined about 500 houses and caused widespread but minor damage to a number of public buildings. In archaeological museums a number of exhibits were broken and the Parthenon sustained minor damage; the SE, but chiefly the NE corner of the monument were displaced by a few centimeters and some of the joints were caused to open up (Zambas, 1985). Five hours later, there was a strong aftershock of magnitude 6.4, originating from an epicentral distance of 60 km. This shock caused no further displacements and had no effect on the opening of the joints, (Korres and Bouras, 1983 (Source : http://emidius.mi.ingv.it/RHISE/ii_1amb/ii_1amb.html#2:  ( Earthquakes in Athens )

June 8, 2008 Andravida - 3:25:29 pm (local time) - Destructive earthquake 6,5 R shocked the northwestern Peloponnese

Very strong earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale, with a small focal depth, occurred at 3.25 noon Sunday, centered in the northwestern Peloponnese, near the Andravida.The vibration was close to the surface, with a focal depth about 10 km, which means, as experts say, that a high post-earthquake activity is expected. There were two deaths and a total of 214 people went to hospital with injuries due to the earthquake. Of those, 21 remained for treatment, while on three cases involving fractures of the extremities, the patients were operated. More than fifteen villages in Achaia and Ilia have been damaged and residents were left homeless or stayed at the homes of relatives elsewhere or were driven to hotels. The areas that count the most wounds are Lower Achagia, Santameri, Fostaina, Peta, Saint Stephen, Portes and the town of Vartholomio.

Where a repeated coincidence stops being a coincidence

Let us now turn to the presentation of the "coincidence" to which I have devoted my previous words. You already have the dates,information and the corresponding charts for five of the most destructive earthquakes in Greece for the last 108 years.

What to do now is to implement the system of secondary progressions (secondary progressions / a day for a year) on the chart of Greece for each of these five critical dates. Let me remind you that the system of secondary progression a day for a year progression) is a system I have used exclusively with the chart of Greece, and it is also a system which is considered by most astrologers as the most important of progression in astrology.

When doing so we observe the following amazing result.:

 The progressed Moon has come into conjunction to the natal Mars five (5) times in the last 109 years in the chart of Greece. All these five times are marked by a powerful earthquake... 1899 - 1926 - 1953 - 1981 - 2008. Every 27 something years (the circle of the moon), the conjunction of the progressed Moon to Mars at 14 degrees and 48 minutes of Sagittarius and the second birth house (according to my version of Greece’s chart for Feb.3, 1830, 00:00) has caused at least one tragedy (but not necessarily one, and not only just an earthquake - see tragedy in Karaiskaki football stadium 04/02/1981); an event with destructive force, injuries and impact on human lives.

Because the issue is more complicated than it seems and because the combination Moon - Mars in the horoscope of Greece hasn’t much to do with the very fact of earthquakes as it has to do with their destructiveness, we should take a careful look at all five charts following :

The Opposition of Moon and Mars in the natal chart of Greece and its multiple effects

Following my thesis that the Ascendant of Greece is at 5 degrees Scorpio, the high precision of the opposition between Moon and Mars on the chart of Greece takes place along the axis 2ou/8ou houses and Gemini / Sagittarius.

Indeed the presence of Mars in 2nd house in the natal house is one that indicates a likelihood / risk of serious damage to the property of the Greek people (2nd house) and for damage to the national economy (also meaning the second house) by Accident-type events (Mars). The exact opposition (180 degrees) of Mars to the Moon in the 8th house (financial transactions with third countries, issues of creation and ownership compared with third countries, nature and cause of death in the population of the country) is a serious "breach" (affliction) with a very heavy price for our country.

Just as in natal astrology, an aspect of such precision with a contribution of one of the Lights, the Moon, has no need of "hard" aspects to show its influence, since its presence is felt and understood in our own daily lives. ..

The most serious "side effects" of this aspect include:

1 - The insane number of car accidents that happen in our country. On average we have 2000 dead, 32000-35000 wounded and 7500 to 10000 disabled every year. These numbers are similar to war losses. Our country ranks first in number of accidents and victims among the countries of the EU-15.

(See here: http://www.enet.gr/online/online_print.jsp?id=88656140
Eleftherotypia 11/11/2004 TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS: Every year, 2,000 dead or here long

http://portal.kathimerini.gr/4dcgi/_w_articles_kathextra_9_29/03/2007_186238 ( Kathimerini, 29/3/2007 "hostilities" in the asphalt )

What could better explain this fact beyond a serious aspect on the 2nd to / 8th house axis (2nd to 8th inflicted= economic losses, damages, compensation, accidental deaths) which include Mars (the most important indicator for any type of accident) and which also occurs in Gemini / Sagittarius axis (the physical axis for roads and traffic). This aspect shows also the main cause of this problem which is no other than the aggressive temper and the recklessness (Moon to Mars attack) on the road; a so typical behavior (Moon in Gemini) of the average Greek driver.

2 - On another level the same aspect is mainly responsible for the status quo and the challenges of territorial claims (2nd to 8th inflicted: questions of a material nature, claims from third parties - in the political astrology territorial claims from third countries) under which our country lives from the first moment of its presence as an autonomous state. And here the presence of Gemini in the 8th indicates that the "contenders" are neighboring countries (Gemini = natural third house). The Moon in the 8th house and inflicted by Mars suggests a possibility of aggressive actions by third parties claiming to make national wealth their own. The continuing state of tension, which we find ourselves in with Turkey, continuing crisis episodes, the wars with the neighboring Balkan countries and the occupation of Cyprus (aggression and annexation of land from the Turkish side in July 1974) have their roots at this very aspect.

Please take a look at the triwheel chart on the next page :


( internal circle: birth chart of Cyprus - middle circle: natal chart of Greece - outer circle: birth chart of Turkey)



Notice : Conjunction of Natal Ascendant of Greece to  Cyprus’ Moon: the mother Greece)

In the chart above you may see vividly how important to the Greek-Turkish relations and the Cyprus problem is the opposition of Moon - Mars in the horoscope of Greece. Note that the Moon of Greece is in exact conjunction to the Ascendant of Cyprus indicating the "mother" (Moon) relationship between Cyprus and the protector (Moon) country of Cyprus,Greece. Mars of Greece in opposition to that conjunction indicates the problems and the likelihood of aggressive and rival actions (Mars) from a third party.

The involvement of Turkey is being pictured by the presence of the MC / IC axis at 16 degrees and 20 minutes of Pisces and Virgo in square to the Ascendant of Cyprus and the Moon in Greece. Please also notice :

1) – The position of Turkey MC square Mars of Greece, as well as

2) – The opposition between Mars of Turkey to Pluto of Greece.

 With this issue however we will continue to deal in future posts, which     will be dedicated to the Cyprus issue and to the relations with Turkey.

***

The conjunction of the progressive Moon to the natal Mars is indicating the destructiveness of seismic action and not the event of the quake itself.

I will go back now to the issue of earthquakes summarizing our results :

These are that in the natal horoscope of Greece (and specifically in the version having Scorpio Ascendant at 5 degrees), progressed Moon has come to a 7 times total of conjunctions to natal Mars from 1830 until today. Having specified those periods this conjunction was in effect we notice that the last five conjunctions at least coincide with an event of a highly catastrophic earthquake power. The emphasis here is not an accident; indeed it is right here where we have the "key" to this case. Those five quakes were not merely large earthquakes, but earthquakes which have caused deaths and considerable damage to property, buildings and public facilities, paralyzing economic life of the region and ultimately causing damage to the overall national economy.  Let me remind you that due to various factors that have to do with the depth of an earthquake, at the location of the epicenter an earthquake can be of enormous power without being devastating, sometimes not even causing the slightest damage. But here we have five earthquakes with lots of deaths and tremendous damages (two of them literally razed entire islands).

So here is the crucial point which we should not miss. The opposition of Moon/Mars, which was activated in all five cases of earthquakes through the conjunction of progressed Moon to natal Mars (theoretically the strongest possible progression), is not related to the very fact of the earthquake, but to the destructiveness of the earthquake. It is not related with the cause in other words but with the result. The real thing that makes Greece one of the countries with the highest seismicity in the world is the presence of Uranus conjunct IC of the chart and that, in addition to the opposition of Saturn in the 10th house the to Sun and Uranus in 4th house.

The earthquake as fact is mainly in the nature of Uranus because it always contains the element of something sudden and unexpected, the element of de-organization of de-regulation, the subversive element, the element of turmoil and chaos (as opposed to that of order which is symbolized by Saturn. Our country - in terms of astrology of course and always based on the key position of this "tension" starring Uranus and the sign which it rules, Aquarius - is in a state of permanent seismic outbreak, which at times gets more apparent and intense.

What happens now, is that when such a period of seismic intensity coincides with an activation of the native opposition of Moon and Mars (as in the case of the conjuncion of progressive Moon to natal Mars) then chances that the earthquakes, which will occur at that time, will have a devastating effect (deaths of people, serious physical injuries) increase dramatically. This happens because this particular aspect takes place on the 8th house axis, indicating the risk of severe damage and destruction (Mars in 2nd)to the assets of the Greek people and the country's economy and the likelihood of accidental deaths on a massive scale (Moon in 8th inflicted by Mars).

As an example let’s take a look at the chart of August 1953 which razed the Ionian Islands. This seismic sequence gave the most disastrous from the five earthquakes, associated with the conjunction of progressive Moon to natal Mars (470 dead, thousands wounded, the total destruction of the island). This particular earthquake on August 12 was the largest (7.2) of the quakes that hit the Ionian Islands in 1953. Notice what makes the intensity of this earthquake so different than that of the others.
Here we don’t just have a progressive Moon conjunct natal Mars, but a progressive Sun and a progressive MC right upon the natal Mars in the chart of Greece. The ones who know really understand the intensity and the ferocity that is included in those aspects.



Suppose you saw this map before the disaster ... The Lights, and the - for many even more important point of a chart,the MC, are both triggering a precise opposition on the 2 to 8 house axis, which includes Mars... Wouldn’t you suggest the possibility of a disaster with grave financial consequences?

Inquiring minds of course have already noticed that the three great earthquakes on the Ionian Islands took place right on the days where the transiting Mars was in opposition to the natal and the progressed position of Uranus on the map of Greece.In any case and in future articles I will try to give even more information regarding matters described in this post.
