Seismic event indicators say Earth has passed the peak of the first Earth-change Uptick Period for the 2020 Earth orbit cycle relative to the Black Star positioned between the Sun and Libra Constellation. The earth has now not seen a Sun-Earth-Black Star nearside-alignment quake event for the first time since the investigation started in January 2011. The Smithsonian Institute/USGS (website) also show no new volcanic eruption events for the last fourteen days, which at first was believed to be a reporting error, or a change in reporting protocol. Some time was invested this morning writing the Smithsonian people to ask the needed questions for drawing definitive conclusions and the answer was as surprising to me as not seeing the predicted nearside-alignment quake strike on May 17th early in the morning UTC. Ed Venke responded to my questions presented in two emails traded back and forth allowing me to realize that our planet has had no new volcanic eruption evens in the last two weeks. See the details of our conversations in the top Featured Article in this newsletter. The ramifications of earth’s combined testimony are staggering to someone running this investigation and connecting the dots. The reason for both related anomalies is tied directly to the deep magma-plume formation growing out of control under our feet! Earth testified to each of these alignment quakes for the last decade because sufficient pressure had built up between the tectonic plates and somewhere something was ready to move. The global tectonic-plate environment now sees the plates being pushed apart to the point that the high-magnitude earthquake events are disappearing from the seismic-chart data entirely! This scenario explains why earth has seen only four of the 7+mag quakes in the last 311 days, when fifteen of these big quakes historically strike over the same period. The earth like the global political-geopolitical-economic environments are all testifying that the Black Star is almost here, which is currently projected to be May 20, 2021. We shall see.
