It's being reported that sources inside BP and the US government are aware of a huge Gas Bubble 15 - 20 miles across and over 10 feet high which is now expanding near the oil well head.
An 'apocalyptic' explosion with tsunami following could result within weeks or months which would force hazardous materials inland.
If the nightmarish Gas Bubble threat is real, it sounds to me like an evacuation order is on the agenda for our Gulf Coast population especially with the Summer Solstice 2010 Moon (the people) at a 29th degree of crisis in 4th house (Home; Domestic Scene; Security) in the Solstice chart set for DC (because DC reps for the entire nation.)
Here's a handy image of the Summer Solstice 2010 horoscope with details and you can see a Grand Trine between the besieged Moon, Sun in 12th house (Sun = Obama, with Mercury conjunct US natal Mars, hence his recent feisty rhetoric about BP), and oily Neptune in 8th house of Transformations where the gaseous giant sporting his Trident still knocks hearts with wounded Chiron in oceanic Pisces. Also, we-the-people's Moon inconjuncts the usually fortunate Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in 9th house of Foreigners.
But for the residents of the region, evacuation won't be easy for multiple reasons.
In the chart you'll also see the Cardinal Grand Cross which is the clincher in this difficult situation as stalemates abound, yet solutions must be found; involved are Sun, Jupiter, Uranus, Saturn, Pluto...and Midheaven, where the drama is playing out for the all the world to see, appreciate, and for some, to gloat over.
Well, since the tragic blowout of April 20, 2010 occurred with its subsequent awfulness, I have a better idea what melancholy Orpheus conjunct Pluto in the Summer Solstice 2010 horoscope means as the season begins with its concurrent hurricane potential.
Time (and Astrology) do bring new perspectives, don't they?
