Shocking news: A major earthquake in the Wellington area in the period 2018-2020?

Graham Ibell, July 2018


I consider the astrological evidence for their being a sizeable and destructive earthquake in the Wellington region, New Zealand, that would have significant physical and social impact in the coming five years. Without being able to be definitive, I propose that the next two or three years are arguably the most likely for such an earthquake, citing the months around January 2019 as particularly significant. Locating it to a specific region is difficult, but its impact on Wellington city itself is suggested. Philosophical impediments to such predictive work are also discussed.
