6.0+ Quakes Shake The Poles – Again

Large quakes have been occurring at both the North and South Poles, again. The closer these quakes occur to one another signals more movement at the poles.

When polar earthquakes occur, the Earth’s axis is rocking back and forth in small arcs seeking balance like a tightrope walker wobbles in the middle of a suspended rope.

Every planet balances on its axis much like a tightrope walker balances on a wire suspended in the air. When that balance is disrupted, instability occurs at the poles, more wobbling results, and more earthquakes occur at both of the poles.

North Pole

The movement started with a 6.6 magnitude quake at Ust’ Kamchatsk, Russia.

A 6.1 quake followed east of Kamchatsk at Amatignak, Alaska.

South Pole

The Scotia Sea, Antarctica responded with a 6.1 magnitude quake just hours later.

A Tightrope Walker

The Earth wobbles like a tightrope walker when its axis is unstable.

Imagine that the Earth’s geographic poles are like a stick poking out of the top and bottom of the Earth, piercing straight through the heart of the planet like a skewer.

Now, visualize the magnetic poles running alongside the “skewer”, pulsating around it like a static’y shadow.

When the Earth moves, the “skewer” moves with it.

The North and South Poles (both magnetic poles and geographic poles) vibrate when the planet shifts, much like a tightrope walker quivers as he balances on a high wire.

Over the past 4.54 billion years, the Earth has wobbled on its axis many times to maintain balance.

When the Earth slips on its axis, the planet is still rotating, and this spin is very important because it keeps the magnetic field functioning.  If rotation stops entirely, the magnetic field completely shuts down.

We are watching this same effect on the Sun today as its magnetic field prepares to “flip.

Maintaining Balance

A wirewalker will sway to and fro to better control his balance, and the result is less tipping. The wirewalker can control his sway by rotating his balancing pole sideways, using a pole or his arms.

The Earth does the same thing when it rotates on its axis. The North and South Poles tip from side to side in tiny arcs to maintain balance.

The Earth also controls the sway at the poles by tipping its axis sideways. When this happens, the entire planet responds: global weather patterns change, more earthquakes and volcanic eruptions take place, and violent storms and flooding result.

From “Super Typhoons” to strong earthquakes at the poles –  we are witnessing a polar “sway.”

Let’s see how the rest of the planet responds over the next few days.
