## Radar Chart of the Sun/Moon Angle for 346 Large Earthquakes. February 17, 2013 The Sun to Moon Angle for 346 Large Earthquakes: I prepared the astrological horoscopes of 346 earthquakes, greater than or equal to 7.0 magnitude, from 1973 to 2013. From that data I extracted the Sun to Moon angle in degrees, and recorded the number times each Sun/Moon angle fell into ten degree slices and graphed the results in the radar chart above.
The outer rim shows the ten degree slice, with all 360 degrees represented. The inner rings show the quantity of earthquakes per slice, with the labels starting at the “0-09” slice at 16 (gold color) and going down to 0 in the middle of the chart. The red line in the middle shows the mean (average) number of earthquakes per degree slice of 9.61 (346 earthquakes divided by  36 ten degree slices = 9.61).
For example, the “270-279” slice, at the 9 o’clock position on the middle left of the chart, shows that 15 powerful earthquakes occurred when the angle between the Sun and Moon was between 270 degrees and 279 degrees. The 30 to 39 degree (*) and 70* to 79* degree slices are also significant at 16 quakes. In fact, these three slices are two standard deviations away from the mean and, therefore, significant statistically. This means that they are not likely due to chance and that some other unknown factors are at work.
Also relevant are the lows of a quantity of 7 at 20* to 29*, 7 at 50* to 59*; 7, 5 and 6 between 100* and 129*; 7 at 310* to 319* and 6 at 340* to 349*. I guess I can understand the high near 270* since that represents the 270 degree aspect or waning square between the Sun and the Moon. The square represents conflict, action, obstacle and stress. However, no “bulge” in quantity shows up at the 180* (opposition) and 90* waxing square.
Further, you can see the quantity of earthquakes start to fall off about 90*, hit a low of 5 at 110* to 119**, and start increasing after that. One reason for this is the the 120* point represents the waxing trine aspect; representing harmony, luck and ease. A drop off in quantity is also shown at the 240*, which represents the waning trine.
You can clearly see from this chart, that the old notion of earthquakes occurring on the New Moon (zero degrees) and Full Moon (180*) are NOT true. Those periods are very close to the average of 9.61. Their does seem to be some correlation between the “hard” aspects causing earthquakes and the “soft” aspect decreasing earthquake frequency. The hard aspects are 90* and 270*, 45* and 315* and 135* and 225*. The soft aspects are 120* and 240*, 60* and 300* and 30* and 330* although this relationship is a lose one. I need to do a much larger sample to see if these relationships still hold.
Obviously, much additional research is needed into the cause of global earthquakes.
