July 2014 flooding at a local farm

As many of you know, hundreds of people have been displaced from their homes by flooding in the prairie provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba since torrential rain on June 29, 2014. Millions of acres of farmland have been flooded, which will lead to major crop losses, and there have been hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage. Most rural roads, highways, and bridges were closed in the affected areas due to flooding. Some have collapsed and will need major repairs. At one point at the height of the flooding, there was no way in or out of a neighbouring village. Basements have been flooded and destroyed on a massive scale. There is currently no working sewer or potable water in my village.
Thankfully, no deaths or serious injuries have been reported.
For anyone following the cardinal t-square and Grand Cross narrative since 2010, however, this is no surprise. I've written about the geo-engineered disasters tied to these cardinal squares from the beginning:
August 2010: "Baseball-sized hail wreaked havoc in southeastern Saskatchewan this past Saturday, July 31 . Since just before the Full Moon Capricorn eclipse on June 26, Saskatchewan has experienced the wildest weather in memory, being pounded by storm after storm of hail, mass quantities of rain causing flooding, and tornadoes. One hundred fourteen communities have declared themselves disaster areas this summer due to flooding, and there has been massive crop failure due to both a cold, wet spring and now flooding. I'm not a person who believes most weather patterns are natural at this point (an earthquake AND a tornado just before the G8/G20 Summits?), but this is quite symbolic of the astro energies we're dealing with currently."
- Last summer, the Canadian prairies, where I'm located, were flooded. This caused massive crop failures - if farmers were even able to get a crop in after an unusually cold and wet spring. Honeybees starved to death due to the lack of flowering crops - not a good omen.
This spring, we have more of the same: unusually cold temperatures and heavy precipitation. Farmers can't get on the land due to flooding. People along the rivers have been evacuated from their homes, and they're calling it a once in 300 years flood.
- Last spring and summer, the prairies had wild weather all summer long, including baseball-sized hail, destructive winds and tornadoes.
This spring, various U.S. states are experiencing deadly tornadoes and baseball-sized hail. A HAARP-induced tornado Sunday night in Joplin, Missouri killed at least 116 people and destroyed large swathes of the 50,000-person city.
More artificially-created, unnatural disasters are to be expected. Don't blame Mother Nature or even global warming on these ones. Their hands are being forced.
- Last spring, the major, gut-wrenching disaster was the oil/Corexit/synthetic micro-organism horror show in the Gulf of Mexico.
This spring, it's Fukushima. (Both events are under media blackout.) The most recent readings released to the public show radiation releases from Reactor 1 shot up from 45 sieverts per hour to over 200 sieverts per hour on May 22/23. For perspective as far as how much radiation this is: an exposure of six sieverts per hour results in almost immediate human death. With a timeline of nine months until containment (as if anyone could really pinpoint it), the entire northern hemisphere is at risk for contamination by radioactive fallout - all while the government and media tells us next to nothing. Almost 5,000 Japanese nuclear power plant workers have been found to be suffering from internal radiation exposure after inhaling radioactive materials near the disaster site.
- In April of last year, a volcanic eruption in Iceland spread ash across northern Europe, stranding 10 million air travellers.
This May 22, just after Family Radio's "Rapture Weekend," another volcano blew in Iceland, kicking up similar clouds of ash and causing more air traffic problems.
- Last summer, the G8 and G20 meetings took place June 26-27 under a cardinal t-square/energetic Grand Cross as well as a wickedly potent Capricorn Full Moon lunar eclipse exactly conjunct Pluto at 4 degrees. The meetings took place with Uranus on the zero degree of Aries, moving into its long-term square position to Pluto in Capricorn, and planning for the Uranus-Pluto square series was laid out.
This summer, NATO is involved in a brand new war against Libya, headed by Canadian General Charles Bouchard. The initial attack was scheduled to begin on the vernal equinox 2011 as Uranus re-entered the zero degree of Aries. (The invasion of Iraq was scheduled to begin on the vernal equinox 2003 as Uranus ingressed Pisces.) NATO warplanes have been bombing Libya since then with the heaviest shelling to date happening this morning. Three people are dead and at least 150 injured, many gravely.
Osama bin Laden's death was announced May 1 just before Obama's appearance on The Oprah Winfrey show, giving his approval ratings a boost as he leads the United States into another attack on a sovereign nation. Other reports claim bin Laden has been dead for years. Now, aggressive language is being ramped up against Pakistan for supposedly harbouring bin Laden, justifying an attack against that country."
In July 2011, Pakistan's breadbasket was flooded in a horrific situation that killed around 1,600 people and destroyed two million homes, leaving up to seven million people homeless. That flooding destroyed crops on a grand scale.
(You may recall my reporting on crop derivatives schemes that pay off handsomely when major crop losses are experienced - or when the mass belief in crop loss fuels speculation on grains futures.)
The flooding of the Canadian prairies in 2011 was called a "300-year flood," and the flooding of 2014 occurred in a similar pattern. The rains followed an abnormally cold and wet spring in 2014 when many farmers were not able to get onto the land to plant, just as in 2011. Many who did manage to seed their land have now been unpleasantly surprised by the flooding of their efforts.
On June 29, 2014, as Mercury stationed direct in Gemini and the Sun in Cancer began triggering the Uranus in Aries - Pluto in Capricorn square, 8+ inches of rain came down in one day in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, with a further 2 - 4 inches the following day. Creeks overflowed their banks, and dams were full to bursting.
On the other side of the weather-modified coin, another major food-producing area, the U.S. state of California, is currently experiencing a "500-year drought" with a miserable lack of moisture that has lasted for more than three years now. This drought threatens to break many food producers, particularly those who are independent.
Many point to climate change to explain this catastrophic weather.
But if you know the astrology, the timing and patterns are too uncanny to believe this is purely natural.
We are moving into the final two Uranus in Aries - Pluto in Capricorn squares of the seven-square series - in December 2014 and March 2015. A square series between these two transpersonal bodies was last experienced in the 1930s during the Great Depression, which included catastrophic drought and crop failures, and the lead-up to World War II
The semi-illegal dismantling of the Canadian Wheat Board by the Harper regime in 2011 has created chaos in the Canadian grain system. Farmers are now receiving far less for their wheat than they were when the Wheat Board was fully functioning as a sort of "farmer's union" with mass selling power on the world stage.
Freight trains are not moving grain as quickly, either (preferring the more lucrative oil contracts instead?), leaving major backlogs of grain in the bins for many prairie farmers. Much of that backlogged grain has now been damaged or destroyed by the floodwaters.
Orchestrated war manoeuvres have also coincided with the cardinal squares this year, just as they have in years past. The illegal war against Libya was launched at equinox 2011, as Uranus re-entered Aries and moved into the seven-square series between revolutionary Uranus and deadly Pluto.
As the Cancer Sun opposed Pluto in Capricorn and squared Uranus in Aries this year, Israel launched a new bombing campaign against Palestine that has left more than 100 people dead and many more injured, including many women and children. This attack by Israel follows an intense media propaganda campaign that involved the story of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped and murdered. The kidnappings and murders were blamed on Hamas, the Palestinian political party with military wing. This media story is now being used to justify the current campaign raining bombs, terror, destruction, and death down on the citizens of Palestine.
The initial wave of 2014 cardinal configuration turmoil (weather wars on agriculture and standard wars against people) was kicked up as the transiting Sun in Cancer moved into orb of an opposition to Pluto in Capricorn (exact July 4) and a square to Uranus in Aries (exact July 8).
Now the Sun in Cancer moves to a square to war planet Mars (exact July 19), which is finishing its almost 8-month transit of Libra. This Sun-Mars square marks another acute point for the summer of 2014 when dramatic events can unfold, including events related to war or general social friction and strife.
Communication planet Mercury in Cancer begins to trigger the Uranus-Pluto square this upcoming week with an exact opposition to Pluto in Capricorn on July 22 and an exact square to Uranus in Aries on July 24. We can expect the narrative to be advanced here with new information coming forth along with new manipulations via media. We can expect some rising mental tension and stress heading into the July 22 - 24 period with themes of "uncomfortable things that need to be said, discussed, or thought about." Fuses could be short, and people could be frazzled and snappy, at times, pushed to their mental breaking points and beyond.
Mercury will enter Leo on July 31, squaring Mars, newly in Scorpio, on August 2.
Love, money, and relationship planet Venus will enter Cancer on July 18, stirring up further action with the Uranus-Pluto square as we close out the month. Venus makes an exact opposition to Pluto in Capricorn July 28 and an exact square to Uranus in Aries July 31. This creates tension and challenge in relationships and money matters designed to initiate major moves and changes that could be radical. Things will be moving on the love and money fronts and more than likely in ways we could not have foreseen entirely.
Astrologically, the final two weeks of July are as full of upheaval, tension, and potential turmoil as the first two weeks.
We are moving through major re-structuring made necessary by circumstances changing in ways that are out of our control.
The tension and dramatic events kicked up by transiting Mercury and Venus in Cancer triggering the Uranus-Pluto square could create points of exhaustion and depletion as we close out July 2014. With all those Cancer planets touching Uranus in Aries, there is a strong theme of "radical self-care" necessary in order to make it through.
Physical energy planet Mars is also running on empty as it closes out almost 8 months in the sign of its detriment, Libra. Mars has had enough of this sign. Watch any social over-extension carefully here, and avoid touchy people and edgy social situations if at all possible. Simply taking yourself out of the social game or going to "only what's necessary" can improve physical energy until Mars shifts into home-sweet-home Scorpio on July 25.
