BBC News Reports:

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake has struck central Italy, leaving at least 13 people dead and others trapped under rubble, Italian officials said.

"Half the town is gone," said the mayor of Amatrice, one of the worst areas affected.
A family of four were feared dead in the rubble of their house in the nearby town of Accumoli.

The quake hit at 03:36 (01:36 GMT), 100km (65 miles) north-east of Rome, at a shallow depth of 10km.

Some buildings in the capital shook for 20 seconds.Officials warned the number of fatalities was likely to rise. The head of the civil protection department compared the earthquake's intensity to Aquila in April 2009 in which 309 people died.

Some of the worst damage was in the town of Amatrice, where several people died and rescue efforts were under way to find survivors.

"The roads in and out of town are cut off. Half the town is gone. There are people under the rubble. There's been a landslide and a bridge might collapse," mayor Sergio Perozzi told RAI radio.
The main street through the town has been devastated and emergency workers are trying to reach six people in a collapsed building.

Astrologically this event coincides with a Mars-Saturn conjunction on the fixed star Antares today.

Often mundane astrologers, especially those who practice astrology with the SVP ayanamsa (Fagan-Bradley school) disregard trine aspects. But this quake chart with Mars/Saturn on Antares in partile trine to the MC is evidence that close trines can be important for mundane events.

To indicate that the Krishnamurti Leo ingress chart also has relevance:

22 Cancer 26 MC Krishnamurti Leo ingress, August 16
22 Aries 55 Quake Moon

Uranus so closely square the quake ascendant has just entered sidereal (Krishnamurti) Aries (now 0 Ari 16' in retrograde motion), so we are in the overlap period when Uranus is in Aries in both tropical and sidereal zodiacs. (Depositor Mars with Saturn on Antares)

Another big quake today just came into my mailbox, 6.8 in Burma.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us10006gbf#executive

This quake chart has Mars/Saturn in 11th trine cusp 7 and Moon on the IC. (I figure someone would want to post the relevant tropical charts.)

The death toll in Italy has increased to 76 and is expected to mount further with bodies still buried in the rubble of the devastation.

Thankyou for the charts Mark. Two things struck me here. The prior full moon has pof conjunct Uranus on the descendant. Think about the physical power of the light of Uranus on that point at that moment even though we cannot see it with our naked eye. Secondly at the moment of the quake the moon has just passed over Pluto by trine and the nodes by trine and sextile, futhermore the node in pisces is almost exactly at the midpoint of moon/pluto.
