Cyclone Idai is regarded as one of the worst tropical cyclones on record to affect Africa and the Southern Hemisphere as a whole. Idai caused severe flooding throughout Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe resulting in at least 784 deaths. More than 3 million people experienced the direct effects of the cyclone, with hundreds of thousands in need of assistance.
During a first landfall the cyclone hit the north-central provinces of Mozambique on 6 March. The Niassa, Tete and Zambezia provinces were affected, the latter being hardest-hit. Then hit Malawi on 9 March. The northwestern Madagascar suffered some heavy rains.
The second landfall hit again the Mozambique, in the central and coastal regions. At 00:00 UTC on 15 March, Idai had made landfall near Beira, Mozambique, with 10-minute sustained winds of 165 km/h. Coupled with torrential rains, disastrous flooding ensued in the region. Officials called the extensive flooded areas “an inland ocean” visible even from outer space. The Cyclone Idai ended his ride as a tropical storm over eastern Zimbawe still affecting the region.
The Solar Eclipse on September 1st 2016
As I noted in my privous article The Malefics threaten the South East Africa the solar eclipse occurred on the 1st of September 2016 was supposed to affected the south east part of Africa between March 2017 and the end of 2022. The intensificantion was supposed to happen around the half of July 2019.
Let’s look at the chart for Beira, Mozambuique, which was one of the most affected places.
Let’s note that the tropical signs are reversed since the chart is located in the southern hemispere where the seasons are contrary to the ones in the northern hemispere.
Below we can see the city of Beira surrounded by the lines of rising of Mars and Saturn and of setting of star Aldebaran and culmination of star Regulus.
The syzygy before the cyclone Idai
Now let’s judge the chart for the preceeding syzygy, the new moon occured before the cyclone Idai struck the South East Africa.
The conjunction of the Luminaries was on the western horizon in Virgo. The Moon was defluxing from Mars and applying to Saturn after the syzygy. Therefore both the Luminaries are besieged by malefics. Mars is in his own domicile in Scorpio. Saturn in exile in Cancer. Saturn and Mars are also in trine and Mars receives the debility of his fall from Saturn. The Moon is with the stars of the stream of water of the constellation of Aquarius. Mars is with Algol, the violent star of the Gorgon. The stars Capella, Rigel and Bellatrix are at the MC. Mercury, which rules the syzygy by domicile and exaltation, is retrograde but still visible, making the heliacal setting in the next seven days. He is in his throne, angular, visible in the sky over the western horizon and in aspect in mundo with Saturn by sextile and with Jupiter by square. Jupiter is his exile in Gemini, angular at the IC. Let’s note that there are three planetary configurations which are called ‘Opening of the Portals’. A planetary configuration is of such kind if there is an aspect between two planets having opposite domiciles. Here we see Saturn and the Sun in sextile and also the Moon is translating the light from the Sun to Saturn. This configuration brings mist, clouds and rain. Moreover we see the mondane square of Mars and Venus which causes rain and lightning; and the square of Mercury and Jupiter, the most important configuration since it involves Mercury which is the lord of the syzygy, producing strong winds. Lastly we see that Sun and Moon conjunction during the eclipse was over the ascendant of the syzygy and in opposition to the syzygy itself.
