The above chart was posted at ClimateRealists.com on the 17th May and takes the current Piers Corbyn May "Earthquake and Volcano" forecast to the 3rd June, a day BEFORE the Partial Lunar Eclipse that falls on 4th June.
As of yet I do not have the latest June report from Piers to see if this R3 (June 1st-3rd) is part of an active period that increases to an R4 or R5 a day or so after this event (stay tuned for more)
During the second half of May there WAS an increase of M6+ indicating that the Moon phases (Ring of Fire) did have some if not most of the influence on the movement of tectonic plates.
We are now heading towards another Moon phase (Partial Eclipse) and I would expect more of the same, so don't underestimate this forthcoming period.

MELBOURNE, Australia, May 30, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Could next week's lunar eclipse (on June 4) cause a major earthquake? Researcher Robert Bast has uncovered a connection between eclipses and earthquakes, suggesting that the Moon's gravity affects Earth much more than previously suspected.
It is well understood that the Moon's gravity is the cause of tidal movements in our largest bodies of water. There are also Earth tides, in which the Earth's crust can bulge by up to 55 centimeters due to the forces of gravity from the Moon and Sun - those forces are greatest when the three bodies are in alignment. They are at their greatest alignment during an eclipse.
"I listed every earthquake measuring greater than 6.5 in magnitude since 1973 - which is as far back as the USGS records reliably go - and checked them against every lunar and solar eclipse for the same period," says Bast.
The study found only a slight increase in earthquakes around solar eclipses. But for lunar eclipses - when the Sun and Moon pull on our planet from opposite directions - the odds of a major earthquake are double. Earthquakes of 7.5 magnitude or greater occur on average every 73.8 days. Within one day of a lunar eclipse, the average drops down to just one in every 33 of those days. Lesser earthquakes also occur substantially more frequently.
