Chapter 7

Tornadoes and Hurricanes

WHEN all three weather charts show unusual violence at the place for which they are erected, and especially if at the time erected there is a progressed aspect to the Ascendant, we may be sure that storms or other destructive weather will occur in the region covered by the charts.

If the chief destruction is through extreme temperature, we look chiefly to the aspects made to the Ascendant of the Temperature Chart to show the day the event will take place. If the chief destructive force indicated is rain, hail, snow or flood, we look chiefly to the aspects made to the Ascendant of the Moisture Chart to indicate the day the destruction will take place. But if the destruction is to be caused by wind, we look most to the aspects made to the Ascendant of the Air Movement Chart to indicate the days of the storm. However, almost always there is a progressed aspect to the Ascendant of all three weather charts at the time of a destructive storm.

In Chapter 6 (Serial Lesson 195), “Unusual Weather,” we considered most of the other kinds of unusual weather, leaving the consideration of the most destructive types of storms, tornadoes and hurricanes, to be taken up in this chapter. Here, therefore, I shall present a brief analysis of ten tornadoes and six hurricanes. Each and every one, picked at random, show exceptional elements of violence and wind.

That we may have a clear and definite idea of what a hurricane is, and how it is distinguished from a tornado, I will quote from The Realm of the Air, by Charles Fitzhugh Talman:

“The name ‘West India Hurricane’ is applied to the violent whirling storms of cyclones that occur in the region of the West Indies and the adjacent waters to the west and east, namely the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea and a tract of the Atlantic Ocean extending eastward nearly to the African coast. Storms having essentially the same characteristics occur in other tropical oceanic areas. In the Far East they are called ‘Typhoons’ or in the Philippines sometimes ‘Baguois.’ In the Indian Ocean they are known as ‘Cyclones,’ while the name ‘Hurricane’ prevails in the South Pacific.

“‘Tropical cyclone’ is a name that embraces all of them, but also applies to numerous mild disturbances of the tropical atmosphere that do not rank as tempests.

“The winds in these Storms blow around a center of low barometer with a velocity that often exceeds one-hundred miles an hour. The storm as a whole travels at a very moderate speed—say ten to fifteen miles an hour—and may even remain almost stationary for awhile. Hence it is the rotary and not the progressive movement of the storm that causes havoc.

“It may help the reader to crystallize his ideas concerning tropical cyclones if he bears in mind that these whirls of low latitudes are intermediate in size between two other types of revolving storms, namely, the huge ‘extra tropical’ cyclone of the temperate and polar zones, and the small tornadoes that are confined chiefly to continental interiors of the north temperate zone. The extra tropical cyclone has an average diameter of about fifteen-hundred miles, while a large specimen may, for example, cover the entire north half of the North Atlantic Ocean. The diameter of a tropical cyclone (hurricane) is sometimes less than fifty miles and seldom as great as three-hundred miles. The tornado is a mere dot on the map—from a few rods to half a mile or so in diameter.

“For concentrated fury and destructiveness no other wind on earth—except, perhaps, the blast in front of a great avalanche or landslide—rivals the tornado.

“A tropical hurricane is a vast whirlwind that sweeps for days together on sea and land and is capable of doing a greater aggregate of damage than the tornado on account of the much larger area embraced in its path. It leaves ruin in its wake, yet stout buildings withstand its assaults and well-found ships plow safely through it.

“The entire life history of the tornado is usually compassed within less than half an hour and the path of destruction is seldom more than a quarter of a mile wide and some score of miles long. At any one place along the path the whole thing is over in a minute. Within these narrow limits of space and time it does its deadly work with a thoroughness only rivaled by the deviltries of modern warfare.

“The tornado is borne along as a local episode in a widespread belt of squalls and thundershowers.”

Usually the first warning of a tornado is when someone sights the black funnel a few miles away on the horizon. But, not infrequently, the knowledge that a hurricane is approaching is known a day or two before its arrival, and people board up their windows, and perhaps go by train loads to higher ground where danger of the water of the sea piling in on them is less great.

A waterspout is merely a tornado-like funnel which, passing over water, sucks the water up. Waterspouts usually are much smaller than the larger tornadoes, and usually are much less destructive.

When the heavy planets in the sky make squares and oppositions we may be sure of destructive weather conditions on the earth. And when the planets forming these heavy discords in the localities where the weather charts are erected, if the localities are in a tornado region and it is the time of year when tornadoes are more common, we may expect tornadoes. But when the same afflictions occur in those regions where tornadoes are rare, but where the destructive storms are hurricanes, we may expect hurricanes. And the same charts in the Great Basin region, where tornadoes and hurricanes do not occur, indicate cloudbursts, sandstorms, and destructive lightning.

The general principle to follow in judging such storms is that the more violent and destructive the inner-plane weather, as shown by the three weather charts, the more violent and destructive will be the storms on earth.

As tornadoes are more local affairs, and the most vicious of all storms in the limited area where they do strike, let us briefly analyze some typical cases; and then close with those larger storms, which due to their size, in the aggregate often create more havoc than any others. These are hurricanes.

Tornado, April 29-30, 1933

A tornado on the indicated date struck near midnight in both Arkansas and Mississippi, sweeping a wide path of destruction. Six were killed and 50 injured, with a property damage of half a million dollars. The heaviest damage was reported at Yazoo City, Miss., for which the three following weather charts were erected.

Temperature Chart No. 220, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below has stormy Saturn and the wet Moon in the fourth house, the Moon being opposition violent Pluto and square violent Uranus. Stormy Capricorn is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Saturn, is in violent Aquarius. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Windy Libra is on the cusp of the first, and Venus, its ruler, is in mild but wet Pisces. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Mars, ruling the sign occupied by the Sun, is in windy Virgo. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

The calm Moon, windy and violent Uranus, and stormy Saturn are in angles. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Air Movement Chart No. 221, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has pleasant Jupiter in the fourth house. Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Mercury, is in violent Aries. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Violent Pluto is in the first house, square both Sun and Uranus. Windy Gemini is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, is in violent Aries. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Mars, ruling the sign occupied by Mercury, is in windy Virgo. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Of the planets in angles, Jupiter is mild, but Pluto is violent. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Moisture Chart No. 222, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has the violent sign Scorpio on the cusp of the fourth, and one of its rulers, Mars, in windy Virgo, and the other of its rulers, Pluto, in mild Cancer. Pluto, however, is closely square violent Uranus. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Violent Mars and Neptune are in the first house. Calm Leo is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, the Sun, is in wet Taurus. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Venus, ruling the sign occupied by the Moon, is in mild Taurus. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Both planets in angles, Mars and Neptune, are violent. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

At the time of the tornado, progressed Jupiter was parallel the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Pluto was parallel the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and the Moon on the day of the tornado had made the conjunction of the Asc. of the Air Movement chart. All during the period covered by the Air Movement chart, up to a day and half before the tornado, Saturn, the storm planet had been within the one degree of effective orb of progressed sesquisquare the Asc. This added to the chart’s violence.

Tornado, September 14, 1928

On this date there was a tornado at Rockford, Ill., at about 3:20 P.M. The tornado path was from 200 to 500 feet wide, and had a length of 25 miles. There were 14 deaths, about 100 injured, and property damage in Rockford alone was $1,200,000.

Temperature Chart No. 223, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has the storm planet Saturn in the fourth. Breezy Sagittarius is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Jupiter, is in mild Taurus. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, is in calm Cancer, but is conjunction violent Pluto, semisquare violent Neptune, and square windy and violent Uranus. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

The Moon, ruling the sign occupied by the Sun, is in Leo conjunction violent Neptune. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Of the planets in angles, the Sun is calm but Saturn is stormy. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Air Movement Chart No. 224, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below has violent Aquarius on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Uranus, in violent Aries. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Violent Scorpio is on the cusp of the first, and one of its rulers, Mars, is in windy Gemini, and the other ruler, Pluto, is in calm Cancer. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Venus, ruling the sign occupied by Mercury, is in windy Libra. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Of the planets in angles, the Sun is quiet and the Moon is quiet, Jupiter is pleasant, but Neptune is violent. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart, except that Jupiter is in progressed opposition the Asc. and thus stirring up discord.

Moisture Chart No. 225, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has violent Pluto in the fourth house. Wet Cancer is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, the Moon, is in windy Virgo making a progressed square to Mars. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Pleasant Jupiter is in the first house, but violent Aries is on the cusp of the first and Mars, its ruler, in windy Gemini makes a progressed square with the Moon. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Mercury, ruling the sign occupied by the Moon, is in windy Libra. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Of the planets in angles Jupiter is mild but Pluto is violent. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

September 14, 1928, when the tornado struck, progressed Neptune was conjunction the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Jupiter was opposition the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and the progressed Moon was inconjunct the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Temperature Chart No. 226, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has the Sun in the fourth house opposition violent Pluto. Sagittarius is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Jupiter, is in violent Aries. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, is in stormy Capricorn in progressed conjunctions with violent Mars. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Saturn, ruling the sign occupied by the Sun, is in mild Cancer, but conjunction violent Neptune. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Of the planets in angles, the Sun is calm and Pluto is violent. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Air Movement Chart No. 227, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has windy Mercury and mild Venus in the fourth house. Stormy Capricorn is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Saturn, is in mild Cancer. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Windy Libra is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Venus, is conjunction windy Mercury in violent Aquarius. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

Uranus, ruler of the sign occupied by Mercury, is conjunction the Sun in violent Aquarius. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Of the planets in angles, Venus and Jupiter are mild, Saturn is stormy, Mercury is windy, and Neptune is violent. This accounts for one-eighth of the influence of the chart.

Moisture Chart No. 228, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has violent Scorpio on the cusp of the fourth with one of its rulers, Mars, in wet Pisces, and the other of its rulers, Pluto, in wet Cancer in progressed semisextile with violent Neptune. This accounts for one-half of the influence of the chart.

Wet Moon in the first house is in close opposition to violent Mars. Calm Leo is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, the Sun, is in wet Pisces in close conjunction with violent Mars. This accounts for one-fourth of the influence of the chart.

March 11, 1917, when the tornado struck, progressed Moon was semisquare the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed violent Mars was parallel the Asc. of the Air Movement chart, and progressed windy Mercury was parallel the Asc. of the Moisture chart.

Tornado, November 10, 1915

This is the date when a tornado struck Great Bend, Kansas at 7:07 P.M., killing 11 persons and destroying $1,000,000 worth of property.

Temperature Chart No. 229, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has calm Leo on the cusp of the fourth, with its ruler, the Sun, conjunction Venus, and both sextile Neptune and square Pluto.

Windy Gemini is on the Asc., and progressed Venus is trine the Asc., progressed Pluto is semisquare the Asc., and progressed Venus is square Pluto. This is a violent combination.

Air Movement Chart No. 230, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has violent Mars in the fourth opposition violent Uranus.

Mild Taurus is on the cusp of the first, but its ruler, Venus, in violent Scorpio, is in progressed square with violent Mars.

The only two planets in angles are Mars and Uranus, both violent. This is an extremely violent chart.

Moisture Chart No. 231, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has Sagittarius on the cusp of the fourth, and Jupiter in an angle, indicating some fine weather during the seven days it rules. The cusp of the first, however, is windy Virgo, and its ruler, Mercury, in windy Libra, is in progressed semisquare to the Asc. This indicates plenty of wind.

At the time of the tornado on Nov. 10, progressed Neptune was sextile the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Neptune was parallel the Asc. of the Air Movement chart, and progressed Mercury was parallel the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Tornado Day, April 10, 1929

It is called tornado day in Arkansas because on that date there were eight tornadoes in the northeast part of that state during the afternoon and early part of the night. The first storm hit three miles west of Calico Rock, about 3:00 P.M. The last storm, about 8:30 P.M., made a path from Calico Rock eastward 100 miles. Fifty Six persons met death, 213 were injured, and property damage was reported as $795,000.

Temperature Chart No. 232, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, shows violent Aquarius on the fourth, and its ruler, Uranus, conjunction Sun, in progressed conjunction with Venus, and both in progressed trine with the Moon. This shows much action from windy and violent Uranus.

Air Movement Chart No. 233, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, shows the storm planet Saturn in the fourth house in progressed square with windy Mercury. This indicates storm in no uncertain terms.

Moisture Chart No. 234, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has violent Scorpio on the cusp of the fourth, and Mars, one ruler, in wet Cancer in conjunction with the other ruler, violent Pluto, and square windy Mercury and windy and violent Uranus.

Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, is conjunction violent Uranus, while stormy Saturn makes a progressed trine to the Asc. This also indicates storm in no uncertain terms.

On April 10, when the storms struck, progressed Neptune was sextile the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Sun was sesquisquare the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and both progressed Moon and progressed Neptune were parallel the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Tornado, April 5, 1925.

On this date there was a tornado and hail storm near Miami, Florida, in which five persons died, 35 were injured, and property damage reached $200,000. Preceding the tornado the ground was covered with hail.

Temperature Chart No. 235, the planets of which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, shows the wet planet Venus in progressed conjunction with eccentric Uranus in the fourth house. Violent Aquarius is on the cusp of the fourth.

Violent Scorpio is on the cusp of the first, and one of its rulers, Mars, is in the seventh house semisquare the other ruler, Pluto, and semisquare windy Mercury.

Air Movement Chart No. 236, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has windy Virgo on the cusp of the fourth and windy Gemini on the cusp of the first. The Moon is conjunction violent Pluto in the first, and Uranus in an angle is closely square the Asc. Much wind is indicated.

Moisture Chart No. 237, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has violent Mars in the fourth house and violent Aquarius on the cusp of the first. The most significant thing about this chart is the progressed inconjunct of Moon and sextile of Sun to the Asc., and the progressed inconjunct of Pluto to the Asc., connecting the degree on the Asc. with the violent progressed square of Sun to Pluto and conjunction of Moon with Pluto.

April 5, when the tornado struck, progressed Neptune was square the Asc. and progressed Jupiter was sextile the Asc. of the Temperature chart, progressed Jupiter was semisextile the Asc. of the Air Movement chart, and progressed Plato was inconjunct the Asc. of the Moisture chart.

Tornado, September 29, 1927

On this date there was a severe tornado at and near St. Louis, Mo., in which 79 lives were lost, and property damage was $25,000,000.

Temperature Chart No. 238, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has stormy Capricorn on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Saturn, in an angle. Somewhere during the season there would be violence, due to the T-square made by Mars to the close opposition of Sun and Uranus, and as stormy Saturn aspects Sun and Uranus closely, and connect them up with the Asc. by making a progressed inconjunct to it, it was likely to be this region.

Air Movement Chart No. 239, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has violent Pluto in the fourth and stormy Capricorn on the cusp of the fourth, with Saturn, its ruler, in progressed sextile to Mars and in progressed trine to Uranus, Mars and Uranus being in progressed opposition. Mercury, the wind planet, is closely conjunction Mars and closely opposition Uranus. Violent Aries is on the Asc., and Mars, its ruler, involved in the indicated aspects. This is a very violent chart.

Moisture Chart No. 240, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has windy Gemini on the cusp of the fourth, and violent Aquarius on the cusp of the first, with its ruler, violent Uranus, making the progressed opposition to Sun and Moon. This also is a very violent chart.

September 29, when the tornado struck, progressed Saturn was inconjunct the Asc. in the Temperature chart, progressed Mercury was opposition the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and progressed Moon was both parallel and square the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Tornado, May 1, 1933

On this date a tornado struck Mindon, Louisiana, 68 were killed, 55 of them in Mindon, and 50 were injured.

Temperature Chart No. 241, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, has stormy Saturn in the fourth, and stormy Capricorn on the cusp of the fourth. Wet Moon is also in the fourth in opposition to violent Pluto in the tenth, and Pluto makes the progressed square with violent Uranus in the seventh. This is a destructive combination.

Air Movement Chart No. 242, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, shows pleasant Jupiter in the fourth, but windy Virgo on the cusp of the fourth. Windy Gemini is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, is in an angle. The ominous thing about the chart, however, is Sun conjunction Uranus, and both square Pluto, and this violent aspect connected with the Asc. by progressed Sun sextile Asc.

Moisture Chart No. 243, the planets for which are given in Serial Lesson 195 and the houses of which are given below, shows violent Scorpio on the cusp of the fourth, and one of its rulers, Mars, conjunction violent Neptune, and the other ruler, Pluto, closely square Uranus. This Mars conjunction Neptune occurs in the first house.

At the time the tornado struck, on May 1, progressed Mars was semisquare the Asc. in the Temperature Chart, progressed Pluto was parallel the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and progressed Mercury was trine the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Tornado, June 28, 1924

On this date, at Lorain, Ohio, there occurred a tornado which cost the lives of nearly 100 people, and created property damage of about $12,000,000.

Temperature Chart No. 244, the elements of which are given below, shows breezy Sagittarius on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Jupiter, closely opposition windy Mercury, and in progressed semisquare with violent Mars. Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, as indicated, closely opposition Jupiter. But the most ominous thing about the chart is progressed stormy Saturn semisextile the Asc.

Air Movement Chart No. 245, the elements of which are given below, has violent Aries on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Mars, in progressed conjunction with stormy Saturn. Sagittarius is on the cusp of the first, but stormy Capricorn is intercepted in the first, and its ruler, Saturn, is in progressed conjunction with violent Mars. Progressed Sun is also square violent and windy Uranus.

Moisture Chart No. 246, the elements of which are given below, has Taurus on the cusp of the fourth, with its ruler, Venus, in close conjunction with violent Pluto, and making the progressed inconjunct with Jupiter. Stormy Capricorn is on the cusp of the first, but the most ominous thing about the chart is progressed Uranus sextile the Asc.

At the time the tornado struck, June 28, progressed Moon was trine the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Mercury was opposition the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and progressed Uranus was sextile the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Tornado, May 6, 1927

The tornado on this date demolished the town of Poplar Bluffs, Mo., killing 80, injuring 300, and doing property damage amounting to $2,100,000.

Temperature Chart No. 247, the elements of which are given below, shows violent Neptune in the fourth house. Violent Mars is in the first house making progressed square to windy Mercury and Jupiter. Windy Gemini is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, is in progressed conjunction with Jupiter and progressed square with Mars. Mars, ruling the sign occupied by the Sun, is in windy Gemini, making the progressed aspects indicated, and also progressed square with violent Pluto. This is, therefore, a very violent chart.

Air Movement Chart No. 248, the elements of which are given below, also has Neptune, planet of peculiar weather, in the fourth, and Neptune is making the progressed sextile to Venus and the progressed inconjunct to Jupiter. Windy Gemini is on the cusp of the first. The ruler of the sign occupied by Mercury, Venus, is in windy Gemini in the first house. This is a mild position, but there is an ominous position, progressed Mars semisextile the Asc.

Moisture Chart No. 249, the elements of which are given below, has windy Libra on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Venus, in windy Gemini in progressed square to Jupiter. Wet Cancer is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, the Moon, is in Leo, conjunction peculiar Neptune. Only windy Mercury is in an angle.

At the time the tornado struck, May 6, progressed Uranus was sextile the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Mars was semisextile the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and progressed Venus was semisextile the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

These ten destructive tornadoes, picked at random, all show great violence in all three weather charts. And, as is practically always the case, at the time of the destructive storm, there was, with the exception of one chart, a progressed aspect within the one effective degree of perfect to the Ascendant of each of the three weather charts. I believe, therefore, they show in sufficient detail to form a solid foundation for further research on the part of the student, the inner-plane conditions which precede, and which are present at the time of tornadoes. Therefore, to complete these studies, let us make a similar brief analysis of those less common, but sometimes even more destructive storms known as hurricanes.

Tropical Hurricane, September 28-30, 1929

This hurricane in southern and western Florida did damage to the extent of $678,000 to fruit, trucks, highways, telephones, small boats, buildings, power plants, etc.

Temperature Chart No. 250, the elements of which are given below, shows stormy Capricorn on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Saturn, in Sagittarius, opposition Jupiter. Windy Libra is on the cusp of the first, and windy Mercury is in the first house, closely conjunction Mars and the Asc. The really ominous thing about the chart is violent Mars in progressed aspect with the Ascendant. Mars and Mercury are in close square with violent Pluto.

Air Movement Chart No. 251, the elements of which are given below, shows windy Mercury conjunction violent Mars in the fourth house, with Mars square the Moon. Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Mercury, is in violent Aries. Violent Pluto is in the first house. Windy Gemini is on the cusp of the first house, and as indicated, its ruler, Mercury, is heavily afflicted. Furthermore, tending to release the indicated violence in the area for which the chart was erected, progressed Venus is semisextile the Asc.

Moisture Chart No. 252, the elements of which are given below, shows peculiar Neptune conjunction Venus in the fourth house and making the progressed sextile to Moon and progressed semisextile to Sun. The Sun is opposition Uranus, and the Moon makes a T-square with this opposition. Thus this chart also shows violence.

At the time of the hurricane, September 28-30, progressed Mercury was conjunction the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Moon was parallel the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and progressed Moon was square the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Hurricane, August 24, 1933

This hurricane with most destruction at Norfolk, Va., brought the highest tide on record, with water pouring through the streets of the city, and a property damage of millions.

Temperature Chart No. 253, the elements of which are given below, shows the violent sign Aquarius on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Uranus, in violent Aries square both violent Pluto and the wind planet Mercury. Violent Scorpio is on the cusp of the first, and one of its rulers, Mars, is in windy Virgo, and the other ruler, Pluto, is conjunction windy Mercury, and in progressed sextile with violent Mars.

Air Movement Chart No. 254, the elements of which are given below, has Taurus on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Venus, in an angle in progressed conjunction with violent Pluto. Both are square violent and windy Uranus. Stormy Capricorn is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, stormy Saturn, is in the first house in violent Aquarius opposition to the Moon. In addition to Venus, Moon, Saturn and Pluto, windy Mercury also is in an angle. This is a storm chart.

Moisture Chart No. 255, the elements of which are given below, has wet Venus and peculiar Neptune in the fourth house. Windy Virgo is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Mercury, is in opposition to stormy Saturn, and in progressed inconjunct with peculiar Neptune. Windy Gemini is on the cusp of the first, and its ruler, Mercury, has the violent aspects already indicated. But the most significant thing about the chart is the progressed square of Venus to the Asc.

On the day of the hurricane, Aug. 24, progressed Saturn was parallel the Asc. of the Temperature Chart, progressed Pluto was parallel the Asc. of the Air Movement Chart, and progressed Mercury was square the Asc. of the Moisture Chart.

Hurricane, September 5, 1933

On this date a hurricane swept southeast Texas, and at Harlingen, Texas, 53 were killed, thousands were hurt and the town was shattered and ruined. Other towns also were flooded, and the property loss ran into millions.

Temperature Chart No. 256, erected for Harlingen, the elements of which are given below, has the storm planet Saturn in the fourth house. Violent Aquarius is on the cusp of the fourth, and its ruler, Uranus, is in violent Aries square violent Pluto and windy Mercury. Mercury, the wind planet, is in progressed conjunction with violent Pluto. Violent Scorpio is on the cusp of the first, and one of its rulers, Mars, is in progressed sextile with windy Mercury from the windy sign Virgo, and also in progressed sextile with the other ruler, Pluto. This is an ominous combination, although it needs a progressed aspect to the Asc. to release it.
