Below are the astrological charts for the Maule Bio-Bio Region of Chile where the huge 2010 Earthquake occurred in the middle of the night. This was the largest earthquake in Chile since 1960. It happened 325 km from the capital city, Santiago, and the resort towns of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, and 115 km of Concepción, the second largest town of the country. The strength of this earthquake is even larger than the 2004 Indonesia Earthquake. Although the 2010 Chile earthquake triggered a tsunami around all the Pacific Ocean, it was a small tsunami which gave very little damage to the coastal regions of other countries. However, Chile's coastal areas have been badly damaged. The aftershocks are very strong and still being felt as this article is written. Such megathrust earthquakes are part of Chile's history.

Casualties and damages by the Chilean 2010 EarthquakeAt the time of writing, there are a few hundreds dead, 2 million homes are damaged. It may well be that destruction is higher than is presently known, as 40% of the Chilean population live in the Greater Santiago area. Though the number of casualties may rise when more information is available, there is no doubt that the anti-earthquake building regulations helped save lives. As in the 2010 Haiti EarthQuake, desperate people without food or water have tried to loot damaged supermarkets. Prisoners in a jail south of Santiago escaped. Since Chile has a strong economy and an overall good structure, it is likely it will recover from this giant earthquake, in contrast to the Haitian EarthQuake which occurred in a desperately poor and disorganized country. One item of note: Chile is a world producer of copper - expect prices to rise for a while under the pressure of the hungry banksters, and get your plumbing supplies as soon as possible. If you can't, then delay your plumbing works for a few weeks until the situation in the mines is back to normal.

Geocentric Astrology Chart - 2010 Chile Earthquake
Relevant astrology books and fascinating others, from Amazon.com
Heliocentric Astrology Chart of the Chile 2010 EarthquakeNeptune and Chiron are exactly conjoined. The last time this happened was on 13 July 1945, in the same region, and resulted in an earthquake with magnitude 7.7. This may hint at the strength of this earthquake. The Neptune-Juno square is also exact. Pluto and Vesta are exactly parallel. Mercury and Chiron are contraparallel. Saturn is parallel Ceres. Again, asteroids making a strong angle and for which there is a need for further research. There's a square between Uranus and the Galactic Center. Some astrologers see the Galactic Center as significant for earthquakes. Jupiter is contraparallel Mars, which explains the violence of the earthquake. Jupiter being a greater benefic has nevertheless a benevolent nature and has probably spared the worst, even in this position. Uranus, Neptune and the Earth are parallel and these aspects may last a long time, so it is possible that more other gigantic earthquakes happen in the next few months and years.

Michelle Bachelet, Natal Birth Charts
Data: 29 September 1951, 00h30, Santiago de Chile
Her geocentric astrology birth chart exchanges the location of the MC-IC axis with the EarthQuake MC-IC axis. Not only is she also experiencing her second Saturn return, but the transiting Saturn conjoinded to the MC of the EarthQuake chart is therefore also conjoining her IC - which goes some way in explaining why she finishes her term of office now. The triple conjunction of the earthquake, Mercury, Neptune and Chiron, are opposing her radical Mars exactly. Transiting Pluto is almost exactly square her Saturn. Jupiter is conjoining her North Node, Uranus is barely past the opposition to her natal Mercury whilst applying to a square to her Chiron, transiting node is applying to the square of her Neptune. Transiting Sun is exactly parallel her Uranus, and there are a few other parallels of declination which mark a stressful time.
Heliocentric Chart --->
In the heliocentric charts, transiting Venus is exactly opposing her Saturn, while making an exact conjunction to her Earth. The EarthQuake Pluto is transiting to the conjunction of her Chiron and to the almost exact square of her Saturn and Earth. There are a few trines in the chart, so she will be able to put in place sufficient structures to enable Chile to recover from this tragic earthquake, although she may be criticised for not evaluating all of the consequences of the earthquake straight away.

The day and time Michelle Bachelet was sworn in as President is also a significant chart of the Government of Chile. Its time is precisely known. The MC conjoined retrograde Saturn of the Earthquake chart is barely past the opposition of the inauguration of Michelle Bachelet. Jupiter of the Earthquake chart, conjoined the Sun, is applying to the square of Mars in the inauguration chart at the same time it is conjunct Uranus. The Pluto transit in Capricorn is just past the square of the Nodes axes. The treble conjunction of Mercury, Neptune and Chiron in the earthquake chart is very angular in the Xth of the inauguration chart and this is true of the whole stellium of the earthquake. The planets of this earthquake are applying extreme power on this government and making it weak, which is fitting the case well anyway as this goverment ends on 11 March 2010. In the geocentric chart, there's an exchange between the IIIrd of the Inauguration and the VIIth of the Earthquake chart, with a close conjunction of the North South Node axis across Cancer and Capricorn, which may explain why the Chilean Navy (Cancer) failed to use its authority (Capricorn) to give proper warning (IIIrd) of the impending/advancing (Mars) tsunami on the Chilean coasts. Chile has now sacked its head of the Navy's Oceanography Service for failure to give timely accurate info.

Finally, the charts of the country, Chile, are also afflicted - Chile's National Geocentric Horoscope - Data: 18 de Septiembre de 1810, 10h00, Santiago de Chile
The transiting Sun and Jupiter conjunction were square to Saturn and Neptune of the country's chart, also indicating discontent with government structures and social progress. Transiting Pluto was square the radical Nodes, so a fateful destructive event was about to engulf the country. The North Node of the earthquake chart is exactly square Mercury in the Chile birth chart. Sun conjunct Jupiter in the earthquake chart are Saturn and Neptune in the Chile's horoscope. In the parallels of declination, Jupiter is parallel to Chiro, Saturn to Juno, Mercury to Uranus. Uranus is contraparallel the Sun and Juno. Neptune is contraparallel Mars.
Chile's National Heliocentric Horoscope --->
The heliocentric charts display similarly difficult aspects. As timers, Pluto in the earthquake chart is exactly conjunct Mercury in Chile's chart. The earthquake Earth in opposition to Jupiter is making an exact T-square to Chile's radical Neptune - Earth - Big - Water... and transiting Mars has just passed the square to Jupiter. In the latitudes, there is a timer again with Mercury exactly contraparallel Chiron, separating within one hour of the earthquake. Mars is parallel Mars, Neptune and Saturn. Saturn is contraparallel Mars and Uranus is parallel Jupiter.
