Mw 6.0 Off the Coast of Jalisco, Mexico
updated 28 December 2021

On 22 December a strong earthquake occurred Off the Coast of Jalisco, Mexico at a depth of 10 km. The seismic event occurred at 23:22:57 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 6.0.

With the absense of critical planetary geometry, in particular alignments, lunar geometry is the typical trigger of low 6 magnitude earthquakes. Both Mars-Jupiter and Saturn-Uranus were in positions where they made critical geometry with the Moon within several hours. Next to that the alignment of the Moon with certain planets, in this case Venus on the 21st, is a significant contributor.
