Astrological perspective -Pandemic fear will be around for 2 more weeks

From an astrological perspective I was wondering what the New Moon in square to the North Node may bring as a challenge and it seems the Swine Flu makes sense as Neptun and Chiron are in conjunction ( that latter ones make what can create epidemic diseases). The Full Mooon which follows 2 weeks after the New Moon will be in square to the Neptun/Chiron conjunction. By mid May Jupiter will reach the Neptun / Chiron conjunction and that rather is a healing pattern hence in 2-3 weeks this specific issue will come to an end.
Lets put it into perspective as only last year 30000 Americans died by some sort of Flu which is unfortunately a standard event by statistics. On the other hand we had incidents like the Spanish Flu in the early 1918-20 which killed many millions. It is basically the same virus type H1N1 and also killed the most people between 20-40 as it does now

Excerpt from Wikpedia

The 1918 flu pandemic (commonly referred to as the Spanish flu) was an influenza pandemic that spread to nearly every part of the world. It was caused by an unusually virulent and deadly Influenza A virus strain of subtype H1N1. Historical and epidemiological data are inadequate to identify the geographic origin of the virus.[1] Most of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise weakened patients. The pandemic lasted from March 1918 to June 1920,[2] spreading even to the Arctic and remote Pacific islands. It is estimated that anywhere from 20 to 100 million people were killed worldwide,[3] or the approximate equivalent of one third of the population of Europe,[4][5][6] more than double the number killed in World War I.[7] This extraordinary toll resulted from the extremely high illness rate of up to 50% and the extreme severity of the symptoms, suspected to be caused by cytokine storms. The pandemic is estimated to have affected up to one billion people: half the world’s population at the time.[8]

Some scholars have theorized that the flu probably originated in the Far East.[9] While historian Alfred Crosby observed that the flu seems to have originated in Kansas, the political scientist Andrew Price-Smith has published data from the Austrian archives suggesting that the influenza had earlier origins, beginning in Austria during the Spring of 1917.[10] Popular writer John Barry echoed Crosby in proposing that Haskell County, Kansas was the location of the first outbreak of flu.[11] In the United States the disease was first observed at Fort Riley, Kansas, United States, on March 4, 1918,[12] and Queens, New York, on March 11, 1918. In August 1918, a more virulent strain appeared simultaneously in Brest, France, in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and in the U.S. at Boston, Massachusetts. The Allies of World War I came to call it the Spanish flu, primarily because the pandemic received greater press attention after it moved from France to Spain in November 1918.

As the Flus seems to have started in Kansas USA I looked into the astro chart of the USA and we have some significant indications for a desease. First of all we have a basic Chiron Pluto square (thereby Pluto is on the Venus / Jupiter conjunction of the USA which was the harbinger fo the victory of WWI) and Saturn and Neptun are in a close conjunction on the US North Node.

By the way as an astrologer you may have seen the economic trouble ahead as Pluto back then was at 3.30 degree and 11 degree’s away from making a square to the US Saturn which was part of the depression which followed 10 years later ( that’s the time it took Pluto to advance to the square and was accompanied by other planets in a so called T-square. We will get a similar constellation within a few years.

Right now the situation is different or not as severe as it was back in 1918 from an astrological point of view but also by pragmatic means as the communication and awareness nowadays does help to prevent the worst. The only potential danger are the plenty illegal Mexicans who have entered America and may not show up with their problems on a time sensitive basis. Lets hope the administration is aware of that risk and offers uncomplicated help.

Excerpt 2 from WSJ

The number of confirmed cases of a deadly new strain of the flu continued to rise Monday, as the World Health Organization moved one step closer to declaring a pandemic.

The United Nations public-health agency raised its global alert to phase 4 from phase 3. The change recognizes that the new A/H1N1 virus spreads from person to person, and signals that governments should prepare for outbreaks. Phase 6 is a pandemic.

..

Health officials said they were stumped over why the strain has been so deadly in Mexico, where the number of suspected cases has surpassed 2,000 people. Only one person in the U.S. has been hospitalized so far. CDC and WHO officials say the disease may turn out be more similar in both countries than it looks now. As the investigation intensifies, more mild cases may be uncovered in Mexico and more severe ones may be found in the U.S.

The flu outbreak comes as the Obama administration seeks a new head of its Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC. The Senate on Tuesday is expected to begin debating the nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as HHS secretary. Democratic and Republican aides in the Senate said they expected Senate approval.

The U.S. government is far better prepared for an outbreak than it was when SARS awakened politicians and the public to the notion that infectious diseases continue to be deadly, even with modern vaccines.

Prodded by SARS and the avian flu scare that followed, President George W. Bush in 2005 issued a pandemic flu preparedness plan. Since 2006, $6.2 billion has been appropriated to stockpile antivirals, step up surveillance and improve vaccine-making and technology.

But state and local health departments — which are often the first to detect new infectious threats — haven’t received federal funds for pandemic flu preparedness since 2006. Many of the agencies have cut staff and services in the recession.

  2. El problema eres tu, xenofobico. Fue en tu país donde se originó el virus, no en México, y como siempre, los que pagamos los costos de las decisiones irresponsables de los EU somos los mexicanos.
