The news of the Gatlinburg fire and its huge devastation has been hard to ignore today.
The Gatlinburg fire stories have been grim, to say the least.
And the numbers have been mind-boggling.
At least four people dead. Many more injured.
More than 14,000 people evacuated. (The actual population of Gatlinburg is only about 4,000. That gives you a pretty good idea of just how big the tourist influx is during the autumn leaf season there.)
At least 15,000 acres of woodlands ablaze. The exact extent of the fire difficult to determine.
Hundreds of homes and businesses completely destroyed. Many others severely damaged.
And plenty of unsubstantiated rumors about tourist attractions and historic sites reportedly consumed by the inferno.
The news about the Gatlinburg fire began filtering in Monday evening. I was preparing for the special webinar I hosted yesterday.
That live online session wasn’t specifically about the Gatlinburg fire situation. Instead it focused strongly on the New Moon dynamics impacting global events right now.
It was all about The Markets at the New Moon. This particular lunation looks like it may have an especially strong impact on astro-trading. So that’s what we gave the most attention to.

After the webinar, more news was coming in about the impact of the blaze in Tennessee. I took time to examine the 90-degree dial for the New Moon.
The New Moon and the Gatlinburg Fire
I calculated the horoscope specifically for Gatlinburg – and a look at the midheaven was quite revealing.
This quick video summarizes my observations with the 90-degree dial. It shows why the Gatlinburg fire is having such a big global impact.
A look at the astrology surrounding a specific event at a particular place can produce amazing insights. I think the 90-degree dial is a great tool for that analysis!
