2nd September 1666: Pudding Lane, London, England. A baker leaves an oven burning as he retires for the night, a fiery conflagration ensues. Winds blow as London goes up in flames. HistoryPod shares the basics of the tale in 2 minutes 40 seconds with a little Astrology to follow:
A Brief Astro-Peek at the Great Fire of London
by Jude Cowell
Naturally when it comes to fire, planet Mars must be investigated and on September 2, 1666, the planet of arson was at 14 Scorpio, a sign that Mars rules. Morbid, secretive, sometimes betraying Scorpio is sub-ruled by the permanent transformation planet of wealth, stealth, and sabotage, Pluto (when in Gemini = ruthless behavior toward society or the social order--Ebertin). That Britain's current financial center, the City of London (51N51:55 00W09:22) developed from the clearing out of London by the Great Fire of 1666 is beyond the scope of this post and yet it lurks within my own thoughts, if not in yours. As you know, the City of London is Sui generis as are we all as unique individuals and is a sovereign state as is the Vatican with its scandal-prone Vatican Bank of money launderers and thieves.
A Few Primary Planetary Influences Active on September 2, 1666:
Pluto and the North Node of Destiny were coasting in tandem though Pluto remained in late Gemini (28Gem28--'28Gem' = BANKRUPTCY), yet North Node (the public) @2Cancer58 would soon meet Mr. Hades to form the tiger by the tail duo of Pluto-NN. This pair implies a common and tragic destiny, according to Ebertin.
In addition, another conjunction held sway: Saturn @13Cap59 Rx and Neptune @19Cap38 Rx with loss-bringer Neptune curiously at its 'new world order' degree as in 1993 when the nebulous fraudster met radical reformer Uranus, forming the oh-so-rational planetary pair of the Enlightenment.
(You, dear reader, must be quite fatigued with my near-constant mention of this pair of arch conspirators of Globalism but with all that's occurring before our eyes since the New Millennium, how can I do otherwise?)
Now I have yet to find an exact or approximate time that the sleepy baker left the oven burning but an early night of it must have been the case since bakers must arise extremely early, you know. At 8:02 pm LMT on that date, the Moon was freshly into Scorpio (2:29 and setting) and the Sun was @10Virgo25--with a critical-crisis 29th degree rising (ASC 29Ari06 = fiery Mars ruling the chart and the event, I suspect). Sudden event planet Uranus was not only strong in its sign of Aquarius (21:33 Rx) but conjoined wounded Chiron (22:32 Rx) while hidden by Dark Moon W'Mat2. Intriguingly, MIDAS Rx conjoined Uranus as well and perhaps suggested some type of monetary motivation for the conflagration. Plus, Uranus may cause difficult disruptions and upsets at the most inconvenient of times.
Another reason I like the '8:02 pm' chart is that Egyptian goddess star Sirius conjoins the IC, the Ending Point of the chart where a draining of energy occurs. Sirius is sometimes known as The Scorcher, a most descriptive application in such a case.
Still, the prime motivator of any fiery show has to be Mars, the fire-starter, in mid-Scorpio as noted, conjoined fixed star Zuben Elschemali, keywords: negative social reform. And of course, the influence of Saturn's and Neptune's combined energies by conjunction indicates a time period with potentials for distrust, hysteria, sacrifice, tormenting conditions, illnesses, weakness, and/or a 'methodical execution of plans' (Ebertin). Both Saturn and Neptune are considered karmic planets that can bring losses of all kinds--combined, they may bring societal woes and conditions of suffering that were most likely a long time forming.
As I type at you from North of Atlanta, Georgia, let's consider the Solar Eclipse Saros Series under which the Great Fire of London occurred and a curious synchronicity which you may find rather interesting:
Prior to September 2nd, on July 2, 1666, a Solar Eclipse manifested @10Can26 in the 11 North Series with fiery Mars @7Lib23. Round up the degree of Mars and its Sabian Symbol seems appropriate for our topic: "A Blazing Fireplace in a Deserted Home"..."the ever-nascent HOPE for a rebeginning." (Rudhyar). Of course, much rebeginning (rebuilding) was necessary with perhaps the most famous architect in history, honorary Freemason Christopher Wren redesigning London, cathedrals and all.
And the curious synchronicity? That would be the fact that 11 North is also the Pre-Natal Series of The Burning of Atlanta to the ground, via Union General Sherman and his troops, on November 15, 1864.
And the most recent manifestation of 11 North? That would be what I then called the New President Eclipse of January 26, 2009, the eclipse @6AQ30 (conjunct US natal South Node) which is cosmically imprinted upon the presidency of Barack Obama--inaugurated it, we might say. It's aka, the Ring of Fire Eclipse. 11 North's initial manifestation was on August 1, 1125 (OS) @14Leo33 and its themes that were in effect in 1666, 1864, and 2009 are: suddenly changing groups through travel or ideas and feeling that a great deal may be gained (Brady).
So 11 North has influenced at least two major fires burning cities to the ground and a suspicious financial heist that wiped out trillions of dollars from the pockets and pensions of millions of regular folk while the 1% "gained a great deal." Therefore, it seems to me that forms of exploitation and oppression of the masses must be embedded within the 11 North Saros Series. The next occurrence of 11N will be on February 6, 2027 @18Aquarius, fyi, so if you're around for it, please watch your back.
In no particular order, other events influenced by 11 North include: the '13 Bankers' visit to the Oval Office (Mr. Obama's alleged 'pitchfork warning' to the sorry jack*sses), the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, Bush Senior's Desert Storm invasion (his touted heralding of a 'new world order'), the Hindenburg Disaster of 1937, and the construction of the White House where US presidents have come to expect "a great deal" -- as long as they follow the transnational bankers' script toward Global Banking though the Rothschildian conspirators' long term plan received a bit of a goosing this week as Britons voted to Leave the EU.
