Chaos und Struktur

Am 31. August um 9:56 AM UTC werden sich Saturn und Neptun auf der Achse Löwe-Wassermann in einer Opposition gegenüberstehen. Da wir die Planeten von der Erde aus betrachten, wird sich diese Konstellation am 28. Februar 2007 und am 25. Juni 2007 wiederholen. Wir werden also zehn Monate den Einfluss einer Saturn-Neptun-Opposition auf das Weltgeschehen beobachten können.

Dabei ist es hilfreich, in die Vergangenheit zu schauen: Die letzte Saturn-Neptun-Opposition war am 25. Juni 1971 und in der Folge am 27. November 1971 und am 19. April 1972 zu beobachten. Der gegenwärtige Saturn-Neptun-Zyklus wurde mit der Saturn-Neptun-Konjunktion des Jahres 1989 eingeleitet.

So viel sei gesagt: Saturn steht z.B. für Grenzsetzung, Struktur, Form und Disziplin. Neptun dagegen symbolisiert z.B. Auflösung, Chaos, Einheit und Hingabe.

City, My City

This is the city that I love. It is my Wellington-by-the-Sea, surrounding a beautiful deep-water harbour that has seen a tapestry of New Zealand history roll out along its shoreline and amongst its hills. Buried among the buildings of the city are many historic trails and localities which have witnessed those momentous and common-place events that make up the life of the city. Situated along the seaward side of Frank Kitts Park, on the Wellington waterfront, is a series of 8 brass plaques. These plaques commemorate events in history associated with Wellington and Wellington Harbour. Series 2 in our tales of Wellington City relates the stories behind each of these plaques and continues our ramble through the Capital City of New Zealand.

Series 2, Part 4

The Russian Convoys

This story is dedicated to all those sailors whose courage in the face of overwhelming odds helped supply the needs of the Soviet Union during World War II, in particular Christopher King, (Royal Navy) and the late Hunter "Mick" Ryan MacAskill (Merchant Navy).

"St. Annenufer" ist der Name einer kurzen Straße, die als Einbahnstraße von der "St. Annenbrücke" zur "Neuerwegsbrücke" führt. Auf der rechten Seite ragen die Südfassaden dreier Gebäude gen Himmel. Auf der linken Seite fließt das von Ebbe und Flut getriebene Wasser durch den "St. Annenfleet". Bei Flut in Richtung "St. Annenbrücke", bei Ebbe in Richtung "Neuerwegsbrücke".

F69 in its new role
Wellington, New Zealand, May 24th 2006

The sinking of the former Royal New Zealand Navy frigate "HMNZS Wellington" was a key and well-publicised event for Wellington City in 2005. It was inevitable that such events would be the subject of a follow-up by local media and as it turned out there were significant events to report. This brief note provides an "Epilogue" to our original story published in Zeitblick Nr. 14 and discusses events that have occurred over the 6 months since F69 was sunk.
