King Tide

Sydney Australia is experiencing its biggest tides for eighteen years. Homes on the coast are seen to have sea water almost at their front doors. The ABC news report shows the swelling seas at Sydney’s local beaches. The moon’s cycles are known to effect tidal variances around the globe. It seems that yesterdays full moon may reveal  more details of changing weather and environmental patterns.

The Full Moon chart for Sydney shows a third and ninth house relationship with the Moon in its own sign of Cancer. The Moon and Sun make a direct hit to the midpoint Mars – Jupiter [post edit].  Mars and Jupiter are fortuitious and basically represents “big action”.

One of the main astrological cycles of this decade which relates to our changing economical and environmental patterns is the Saturn Uranus opposition. Devore states in his book that the Saturn Uranus cycle is also a “weather cycle” let alone the changes this cycle represents for economic conditions.

Yesterday’s chart for the full moon includes aspects to Saturn and Uranus.

If the tidal variance, the body of water – fluid ebb and flow has reached “King Tide” proportions does that also mean that our bodily functions and chemistry is also varying in such degrees?

If we follow the hypothesis that the full moon has an effect on the tides, flora and fauna then surely humans experience a “tidal fluctuation”.

In Australia recently we have experienced a number of shark attacks and lethal dog attacks and even fathers killing their own babies. In my view any effects the recent King tides might reflect similarly in human behaviour is anecdotal at best. My instincts however sense that our emotional tides and in contrast to the harsher realities of life become fuller.

The Moon after all is in her own watery home swelling and rising against the backdrop of the Saturnine – concreteness of our individual realities.  If there ever was a time to seek help or deal with emotional issues in life it would now.


Most good surfers know how reef breaks can work better or worse on a big tide. It depends on the depth of the reef versus swell and size of the tide.

Perhaps your reef (Saturn) break is pumping at the moment or perhaps the increased tide means that your reef break is temporarily inactive.

    Good surfing picture Kingsley.

    I remember the feeling although I probably never surfed a wave that big

    Well we are made of alot of water. I’ve always believed that the high % of liquid in our make up can often be affected the same as any body of water. What’s a tad frightening about that is what happens in the cities where millions of us water bags are highly affected by environmental shifts and changes all at the same time.

    Does that depend how deep we are too?

    Really nice post K.

    well, metaphorically Roses, “our reef” is kind of what lays below the surface – our reality. Sometimes the reef beneath can be or depth or the low tide exposes the reef too.

    I know you like metaphors

    You do know don’t you? I hadn’t thought of the low tide thing. But yes, i guess that’s true.

    Did you know that if we were ever caught outside of the space ship out in space, (the gossip is) apparently we’d turn inside out – our insides would expel out of our skin some how. I don’t know why but i think it has to do with our make up. Maybe i’ve just been watching too much telly again. It would be yucky though.

    You’re pretty good with metiphors K. Its the danger of the reef that catches all the treasure in all the old sailing stories. Reality can strike quite a blow sometimes, can’t it? Strange how in the last few decades, they’ve been making movies about finding all those hidden treasures hiding way deep down in the dark. Come to think of it though, it still involves a lot of danger and risk but… apparently its all worth it.

    Too full on for me i’m afraid… roses
