Copenhagen fire – stressed eclipses + Uranus in Taurus/Scorpio fires and German invasion

Denmark’s 17th Century stock exchange building in the centre of Copenhagen has been destroyed by fire. Culture minister Jakob Engel-Schmidt said 400 years of Danish cultural heritage had gone up in flames. The building was being renovated, as was Notre Dame before its fire.

  The Denmark chart, 5 June 1849 12.15pm Copenhagen, has the accident prone tr Saturn Mars conjunction square the 9th house Gemini Sun for a considerable setback; and the Solar Arc Sun within less than a degree of being in an undermining square to the Neptune.

  The two recent eclipses were both stressed in relation to Copenhagen with the late March Lunar Eclipse having Pluto exactly on the Midheaven for Copenhagen; and the Solar Eclipse having Pluto on the IC exactly.

  It certainly registers as a transformational moment – and perhaps hints at a history-changing moment for Denmark in other ways.

ADD ON:  The fire was reported at 7.30am on April 16th which puts Pluto near the Midheaven.  The Uranus at 21 degrees Taurus echoes the German Invasion of Denmark chart on 9 April 1940 when Uranus was previously at 20 Taurus. Another catastrophic Copenhagen fire of 20 October 1728 JC which destroyed 30% of the city had Uranus at 21 Scorpio – so it is a sensitive degree area for Denmark.

  There is a difficulty in establishing earlier charts for Denmark since its history was so entangled with the other Scandanavian countries. Though 804 AD and 936 AD seemed to be historically important and they had Uranus in Scorpio and in Taurus respectively.

  Where this key degree resonates with the modern Denmark chart of 1849 is in its Chiron at 22 Scorpio. So at the moment tr Uranus opposing its Chiron does suggest a deep wound – as did the German Invasion of 1940.

  1. Copenhagen have really been marked by fire the last few centuries. Not only the 1728 disaster, but also in 1795 and 1807 when the british attacked Copenhagen.
    Oddly, the palace of Christiansborg the seat of our parlament since 1849, standing just next to the stock exchange building, burned down twice in less than 100 years.
    First time on 26 february 1794, started in the “afternoon”.
    Second time on 3 october 1884 around 4.30 pm. Neptun was at 22 Taurus at the time.

    To Marjories remark on a transformational moment, I would not be totally shocked, if our established politcal landscape went up in flames quite soon. Our bepartisan government suffers greatlly at the polls and premierminister Mette Frederiksen could well escape, already, this summer to some big job in Brussels

  2. This is a truly tragic event for Denmark. The building was, and it is sad to use past tense here, iconic in Denmark and when I was in Copenhagen, a few years ago, I walked past it and it was a beautiful and impressive piece of architecture. 400 years of history wiped out because of, either, malice or carelessness. What staggers me is that no lessons seem to have been learned from peevious incidents like this. If it was an industrial accident involving paint thinners, surely after Notre Dame a few years ago, building and renovation trades would have put new regulations in place for themselves, to prevent such an incodent from happening again. It’s criminal negligence, in my opinion, that containers of chemicals of that nature are just left lying aroumd without being put away properly, or removed and brought back again the next day.

    There was also information, in the local news here, that ordinary people in Copenhagen, when they saw it was starting, ran inside and formed a himan chain to tey to rescue some of the priceless artworks which were hanging inside, which I think was extremely brave and wonderful of them.

    Sadly the building, in time, if it is, will be replaced with a modern structure, in all probability, but it cannot ever compare or replace what has been lost.

    A sad time for Denmark.

  3. I hate to read news about damage or destruction of historic landmarks and cultural heritage. However, according to a recent article from Reuters, the owner of Copenhagen’s Old Stock Exchange building said the landmark will be rebuild and restored.

    Also, according to The Washington Post, people rushed into the Old Stock Exchange building, shortly after the fire begun, to save the large collection of artworks housed inside. I was relieved to read that; many of the people who rushed into the building were just passer-by private citizens who just wanted to protect their country’s cultural heritage.

    After reading a litany of articles about the wannabe “social justice warriors” and phony “woke” virtue signaling “humanitarians” who’ve been attacking artworks, monuments, landmarks, and cultural heritage sites for the past decade because they think art is somehow mean and cruel to the natural environment, racially insensitive, misogynistic, or “anti-Palestine,” It’s nice to read about people who respect and treasure art and architecture and are even willing to risk their lives to preserve it – we need MORE people like that in our world.
