NEW ENGLAND AND THE NORTHEAST

LONG RANGE WEATHER FORECAST for the EXTRAORDINARY SPRING OF 2014

The 2013-14 winter forecast posted here was accurate. It has been a moisture filled season peppered with wild and wacky extremes of cold and warm fronts. Many storms brought snow or a combination of snow and rain. The week of March 8 2014 was to be a better week of weather and it was; more then 3 days of warmth and sunshine and people were loving it. The forecast was written October 2013.

We welcome spring in hopes of more mild weather and expected warmth. Just look at the table below for the abundance of ‘better weeks’ compared to winter which had only one. The better weeks include at least 3 or more fair weather days. The warming will be slow along with a chance of snow in April! Be grateful that the Sun will ply its great light and warmth over New England. Being New England, the variety of weather remains a constant, our claim to climate. Dry and wet conditions will be the norm once again.

Spring in New England anticipates the greening and warming but winter hangs on a while. Know that the fair weather days will be warmer….slowly….warmer. With that, we are cautioned to leave out a scarf and mittens for early spring.

WEEKLY SUMMARIES – The following forecasts contain weekly summaries describing the general weather for each 7-8 day lunar period. Not all weather events are described.

March 16 – 22, 2014 Full Moon

Oh the wrath of St. Patrick! Almost never fails to have strong weather on his day. Cold and windy, perhaps a bit of snow to start the period. The 20th can bring very strong winds that will push the water – be sure to tie things down. Spring comes in like a lion but tapers off to a more mild few days.

March 23 – 30, 2014 Quarter Moon – Perigee March 27

Brave the week again when a lingering winter annoys everyone – it will be more cold and snow or rain showers from the clouds are in the forecast. With the change of the seasons, fog is on the agenda near the 28th as warmth from the south reluctantly gives it up.

March 31 – April 6 New Moon

A mixed week of warm up temps along a bit of humidity. Just remember the chill and cold of winter and enjoy the suny days. There is rain in this week’s forecast, but I think the fair weather will just overpower the clouds.

April 7 – 14 Quarter Moon

Just to keep you on your toes, Mother Nature hopes that you haven’t packed up all the winter gear. This period hold a mixed bag of cold and dry weather with a bit of snow or mixed snow/rain. Rain likely in southern New England

April 15 – 21, 2014 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 25 degrees Libra

While the tv keeps dropping news bombs around the globe, New England will have a storm this period. Violent, destructive and wet and windy. The winds push the water to batter the coast line – be prepared. April 16th is a probable target date.

 

April 22 – 28, 2014 Quarter Moon Perigee April 23

The wind activity is still strong and significant rain with possible flooding are the highlights of this week. The tides are extreme with the Moon perigee.

April 29 – May 5, 2014 New Moon Solar Eclipse at 8 degrees Taurus

The winds continue to clear away the winter gloom and we might want more calm conditions, more spring like warm weather – we have that too, at the end of the period! Get the deck chairs…

May 6 – 13, 2014 Quarter Moon

Fair weather, dare I say hot and dry, prevails for part of the week, then we turn to rain and those ‘wait a minute moments’ when the weather is finiky and windy around the 10th. I would say this could be considered close to one of those ‘better’ weeks.

May 14 – 20, 2014 Full Moon Perigee May 18

It will be dry but chilly to begin. However, the warming trend is in place and results in haze and clouds, yet cold air wants to knock it out. Who wins? The passing fronts play games of chicken. I think we can enjoy the fair and sparkly days more than the other.

May 21 – 27, 2014 Quarter Moon

Could we have a ‘better’ week here? I’m ready to enjoy several days in a row of glorious spring weather, aren’t you? Weather fronts will try to spill their moisture and a thunderstorm or two are possible. Fog and very warm periods are also expected.

May 28 – June 4, 2014 New Moon

The week takes a few days to warm up again. Showers are expected early on and a chance of rain on June 4th. The heat is nearby but just not making that impact in any way that is steady.

June 5 – 12, 2014 Quarter Moon

A cooler and mostly dry week. Rain expected the 12-13th. The fair weather days are scattered throughout the period.

June 13 – 18, 2014 Full Moon Perigee June 15

Scattered thunderstorms and violent winds – squalls in general coming from the midwest. During the period, expect warm and sunny conditions – beach anyone? Humidity accompanies this forecast allowing the fronts to merge and go crazy. A very mixed or mixed up week!

June 19 – 26, 2014 Quarter Moon

Jump right into summertime weather. Record setting heat is in the forecast to the south and west of us. The bit of cold air trying to sneak in to spoil the party is ready to take over but a truly beneficial air mass called high pressure will be stronger to assure us that summer has arrived.

LOCAL WINDS SUMMARY FOR NEW ENGLAND

The model for gauging wind velocity is calculated independent of the temperature and moisture models. The partial information becomes substantial when combined with temperature and moisture – no other system can offer this information.

Note: tempest = extreme.

Mar 17 – Apr 6 – Typical breezy conditions common in March.

Apr 7 – 23 – Spring breezes continue. Watch for extreme and tempestuous winds mid April, 14-16th.

Apr 24 – May 6 – Breezy and two important wind events on April 23rd and May 2 – give a day on either side for very strong winds. Check the weekly summary.

May 7 – 28 – Average winds. Stronger winds May 10-11th.

May 29 – Jun 6 – Mild winds during this period

Jun 7 – July 1 – Lovely breezes. Turbulence near June 13-14th.

NEW ENGLAND SUMMER WEATHER HINTS 2014 will be fair, breezy and dry early on, changing to hot and humid.

THE SYSTEM

Forecasting weather is developed here using a system designed hundreds of years ago using the natural forces in our solar system including the earth and the Moon. The current astronomers and scientists were the first astrologers and now scoff at their roots. With a bit of effort, they could learn our system to be able to include long range forecasting in their repetoire.

The long range forecasting tradition is carried on today where we are able to forecast weather for the next year or beyond. Our work is derived from the position of the planets in relation to a particular location on the date of the seasonal change. Weekly details are formed by using the models of the new, full and quarter Moons.

My report delivers national trends and a free weekly observation of the weather for the northeast. The client list for an accurate future one day forecast is long and with 100% accuracy. The ‘Nemo’ bride for the Feburary 9, 2013 blizzard is one example. Check out the link: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_22556438/massachusetts-bride-nice-day-white-wedding The blizzard was included in my New England winter report. The bride’s report was ordered in September 2012.

Currently, the ongoing forecast of extreme weather is at the halfway mark in the 10 year forecast written in 2008 and no other forecaster can match that record.

With that, it is safe to say that extreme weather will continue and the general public should be prepared and pay attention to the dangers within one’s environment. Wouldn’t you like to forecast weather? Take the course. http://weathersage.com/about/weather-course/

MOON PERIGEE & SYZYGY ** SuperMoons–no SuperMoons spring 2014

TERMINOLOGY

*Perigee periods, as noted in the forecasts, occur when the Moon is closest to Earth every month. The trend for weather is toward intensification with the stronger gravitational pull of the Moon on Earth at this time. The tides will be higher and lower than normal near the exact date, plus there will be an increase in the wind activity. When the Moon is at perigee and at the same time it is also a new or full Moon, it is called a ‘SuperMoon’.

A syzygy is a situation where three celestial bodies are positioned along a straight line. The term is also applied to each instance of New Moon or Full Moon when Sun and Moon are in conjunction or opposition, even though they are not precisely on one line with the Earth.

**SuperMoon is a term coined by Richard Nolle, Astrologer. He defines the SuperMoon as a perigee-syzygy; namely a new or full moon which occurs at or near (within 90% of) perigee. Check his website for the complete list of SuperMoon dates. http://www.astropro.com/features/

What is a SolarMap and How is it Used?

What is a SolarMap and How is it Used?

The map, solarmapping, is found on many astro softwares.  My choice is SolarFire v8 with the mapping included.

A view of the map with the lines of weather influences is worth a thousand words. The map is a backup tool for the main model for a season, a chart (horoscope) calculated for the Sun’s entrance into a season.  Astrologers know this as the Sun at zero degrees and minutes of a cardinal sign. The cardinal sign for spring is Aries, for summer it is Cancer, at Fall it is Libra and for winter it is the sign Capricorn. A chart for a particular location is constructed and used to forecast weather. However, the mapping tool allows an excellent view of seeing where the same seasonal planets will influence the weather for the USA, in this case. Any map may be used in this way.  Details of use are found in the weather course.

If a chart were constructed for different regions of the USA, the planet lines would be different from another region. Each line on the map indicates that a planet falls on one of the four important angles of that locations chart. The four angles depict the longitude and latitude plus the horizon of that location. The planets influence may – may supersede the typical analysis from the 4th and 1st houses. Nevertheless, a planet on an angle is very influential. The brief statements in the national highlights report help to understand the overview of the season’s weather. New England is my home and I focus a more detailed report for the northeast USA.

THE GREAT STORMS OF RHODE ISLAND, A CHRONOLOGY

Dramatic Weather Events Seen Through a Geographical Natal Chart

A Chronology of Rhode Island’s Great Storms

By Carolyn Egan

LONG RANGE WEATHER FORECASTING

The basic rules of long range weather forecastingoriginated with the astrologers of long ago, from Ptolemy to J.B. Morin and more recently, C.C. Zain in his book Weather Prediction. In brief, the ideas that Zain puts forth includes the examination of seasonal Sun ingress charts and four lunar phases, new, full and quarters. The 4th and 1st houses, their ruling sign and planets are analyzed and blended to develop a weather forecast.

After following the basic rules for several years of forecasting weather, I have discovered that a more accurate forecast can be achieved when transits to a located chart of a state, country or region are included in the analysis.  

Figure 1RI CHART

WHAT IS A GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION CHART?

A geographic location chart is a well timed horoscope (birth chart) for an entire country, a state, or region and in the case of England, it is a coronation chart which has proved its worth. In general, this type of chart will have angular cusps which are sensitive to transiting planets.

The study of transits to a geographical location chart is a powerful technique that enables the astrometeorologist to create a more accurate long range extreme weather forecast. Finding such a chart is not always an easy task.

It is well known that transits are a reliable timing method based on the relationship of a planet’s current position in the sky to a birth chart.

Charts from Marc Penfield’s book Horoscopes of Cities and States of the USA have been examined and transits to the charts often describe the daily weather if the chart is well-timed! The chart’s angles plus the 4th and 1st house rulers of the signs on the cusp must be activated by transit.  The list of dramatic weather events that follows in the state of Rhode Island and the transits to the location chart demonstrates the point of this article.

Dramatic weather is common in Florida and a chart for the state of Florida, when it became a state, has also been tested (fig 2). For this article, Penfield’s rectified chart of the Founding of Newport, RI in the year 1639 is used (Fig 1) along with the most dramatic storms in its history.

WHY USE A GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION CHART?

Weather forecasts can be created without the aid of a located chart. However, the additional information derived from the locational chart has more than once been the deciding factor for the final forecast.

In order for a birth chart, the locational chart, to be of value in forecasting the weather for a country, a state or a region, the angles (the cusps of houses 1, 4, 7, and 10) must be sensitive to major transits at the time of a strong weather event. Natal planets found close to the angular house cusps from either side will be sensitive as well. The table of transit hits for the Rhode Island storms demonstrates this nicely. Repeating this information means it is the greatest value and point to be made.  The Founding of Newport, RI chart has only one planet, Uranus, which is close to an angle, the 4th house cusp. Uranus scored very high in the hurricane transit hits. The rulers of houses 1 and 4 also scored high as noted in the table that follows.

The intensity of a weather event should reflect the number of and harshness of the planets transiting the angles and planets. In fact, as an aside, once the art of weather forecasting is learned, one can use the weather terminology in the specified 1st and 4th houses in your own natal birth chart with surprising and revealing results!

For example, Mars and Saturn in hard aspect to the 4th house cusp would mean ‘violent and severe thunderstorms’, and very often when the signs Gemini and Leo occupy the 1st and 4th house cusps (in some latitudes) the weather is fair, breezy and dry.

After a chart such as the one demonstrated in this article, the Founding of Newport, RI, has been observed and is workable, the area of land it covers will vary due to the terrain. In Southern New England, the Newport chart covers major storms for Rhode Island and coastal areas of Connecticut and Massachusetts, all three states having the same climate and vulnerability. In larger states such as Texas and California, more than one chart may be necessary to work with.

In addition to using transits to the locational chart, other forecasting techniques such as progressions, solar arc directions, solar returns and a progressed declination graph may be applied.

Meteorologists rely on statistical evidence to predict future cyclonic events. Their statements of long range event probabilities change frequently, hold no water and are vague and useless. The performance of astrometeorological forecasts constitutes a more accurate view of storm events proven in the past by several 20th century practitioners. The potential of the long range weather forecasting system continues to grow and one day the science oriented meteorologists may understand the value of integrating both models.

WHERE TO FIND A GEOGRAPHICAL FOUNDATION CHART

One very good source of timed charts is Marc Penfield’s book Horoscopes of the USA and Canada. Many charts have rectified times with very good source history. I continue to test the charts for the USA coastal states for their effectiveness. To be effective in this endeavor, the work must be done to discover additional located charts.

Many of the older charts seem to resonate more with the location, than the charts for the state’s entrance into the union. The local library and historical society are two other sources where significant dates of founding or settlements may prove useful as well. Historical text may include a general time of a foundation meeting or treaty that could be tested and rectified. Without question, the internet continues to be one of our most valuable resources.

Generally, more than one chart may need to be tested for a location, but the chart for The Founding of the City of Newport, RI (fig. 1), rectified by Marc Penfield, is the one chart with angles sensitive to transits. A total of four charts were tested for Rhode Island. The ruling planets of the 1st and 4th house cusp signs, the main houses in weather work, were also sensitive to transits as demonstrated in the following analysis. The sensitivity of the planetary rulers of the 7th and 10th house signs is not necessary to the study because the 4th and 1st houses, the signs on the cusps and planets close to the cusps are generally the main weather indicators.

CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER OF RHODE ISLAND’S GREAT STORMS and

NOTEABLE TRANSITS TO THE FOUNDING CHART IN NEWPORT, RI

Aspects and Orbs

In most cases, the orb of influence is one degree or less. In some cases an orb of two degrees is used and in one case, an orb of two and one half degrees was used within a pattern. Two tables follow the storm descriptions and transits, summarizing the type of transit and the total hits to a point or planet. All but one storm is of a tropical/hurricane category. One winter storm that paralyzed Rhode Island, all of New England and parts of the northeast USA for nearly a week

is included. For each storm, the date of landfall is used.

August 15, 1635 The Great Colonial Hurricane of 1635 struck Narragansett Bay,(Providence) RI at about a category 3 hurricane, killing more than 46 people.

Major transits landed on the Newport chart even though this storm is four years prior to the 1639 chart. On the day of landfall, Venus and Mars were conjoined transiting conjunct the natal Moon and in a square aspect to natal Uranus. Transiting (Transit)) Jupiter was opposite natal Saturn which also squares natal Sun. Transit Uranus was trine natal Venus.

October 29, 1693 A tropical cyclone struck New England and caused flooding so great, that new permanent inlets were created.

In 1938, transiting Pluto was on the 1st house cusp in the RI char. In 2005,transiting Pluto was aspecting the natal Moon in the State of Louisiana’s natal chart when Hurricane Katrina made landfall. The natal Moon is the ruler of the 1st house cusp and transit Pluto also squared the natal 4th and 10th cusps of the chart.

Transforming Pluto was transit conjunct the natal ascendant by less than one degree. Transit Mars was applying by 2 degrees to the ascendant. Transit Uranus was applying to a conjunction with natal Mars by one degree. Transit Jupiter was applying to square natal Uranus by less than one degree.

November 1, 1778 A late season hurricane struck Cape Cod, Massachusetts and Rhode Island killing 50 to 70 people.

Pluto was applying by transit opposing the 1st house cusp within 2 degrees. Tansit Saturn was applying to a square of natal Saturn and opposition to natal Sun by a small orb.

August 19, 1788A compact but powerful hurricane devastates forests along a narrow track from New Jersey to Maine.

Transit Uranus conjuncts the ascendant. by less than one degree. Transit Neptune was on the 4th house cusp within 2.5 degrees. Transit Pluto was square to the natal Sun by one degree. Saturn transiting was in square to natal Venus by less than one degree.

September 23-24, 1815 The Great September Gale of 1815 struck New England as a major hurricane and delivered an 11-foot storm surge that funneled up Narragansett Bay where it destroyed some 500 houses and 35 ships and flooded the city of Providence, RI. It also was the cause of over 38 deaths in New England.

Transit Neptune was sextile the natal 4th house cusp by less than one degree while transit Jupiter was conjunct the natal 4th cusp to the degree. Any combination of Venus, Jupiter and Neptune tends to be a tropical influence. Transit Uranus was opposite natal Mercury to the degree and conjunct natal Jupiter by less than one degree.

October 14, 1846 The Great Havana (Cuba) Hurricane of 1846 likely struck near Hartford, Connecticut, where hurricane-force winds destroyed a trestle bridge. Numerous apple orchards in Massachusetts were reported ruined. Luckily, no deaths were reported when the hurricane passed over New England.

Transit Pluto was in square to natal Moon by 15 minutes. Transit Saturn conjuncted Neptune and was trine natal Uranus.

October 19, 1851 A tropical storm formed north of the Bahamas on October 16. It continued northward and reached a peak intensity of 70 mph. But it weakened to a 60 mph-storm before it made landfall in Rhode Island on the 19th. Later that day it dissipated on the border between Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Neptune transits in square to natal Venus by less than one degree. Transit Uranus squares natal ascendant by less than one degree. Transit Saturn squares the ascendant to the degree. Transit Jupiter squares natal ascendant to the degree.

September 16, 1858 A category 1 hurricane made landfall on the Connecticut-Rhode Island border and brought heavy rain to New England before exiting Maine as a tropical storm.

Transit Neptune was in trine natal Moon to the degree. Transit Uranus was conjunct natal Mercury to the degree and also opposite to natal Jupiter by one degree.

September 28, 1861 A hurricane hit Connecticut as a 60 mph tropical storm. It then continued east-northeast and dissippated in extreme eastern Maine later that day.

Neptune transiting to trine the natal ascendant by a degree helps ease this storm in instead of destroying the environment. Jupiter also applied to square natal Mars perhaps avoiding more devastation than from a malefic.

September 21, 1938 The Great Unnamed Hurricane of 1938 and also known as The Long Island Express. A classic storm – the transits electrified the Founding of Newport RI chart. Examining the charts for this storm convinced me to add the Newport RI chart to the study. The full analysis of the storm can be found at my website under Classic Storms. http://www.weathersage.com/storms/index.htm

Transit Saturn was applying to the 10th house cusp while transit Pluto, both malefics, was conjunct the degree of the natal ascendant. Transit Uranus was conjunct the natal Sun. Also the transiting stellium in Virgo was in square aspect to the natal Gemini stellium.

August 31, 1954 Hurricane Carol was the most destructive tropical cyclone to hit the northeast Atlantic states since the 1938 hurricane. The storm killed 66 people, injured several thousand, and left many locations in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern Massachusetts in shambles.

The very tropical pair of Venus and Neptune conjoined in transit and was conjunct natal Uranus in the 4th house. The transiting pair of Jupiter and Uranus conjunct was with the natal Moon. Transit Pluto was sextile natal Uranus by 5 minutes.

September 11, 1954 Hurricane Edna - the eye of the storm passed between Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts fortunately at low tide. As the storm continued northeast, winds began to wrap around the storm from the north with gale force winds extending outward 400 miles from the center. Winds of 110 mph were reported at Block Island, RI, 90 mph at Providence, RI, and 87 mph at Boston with a brief gust of 101 mph from the northwest.

The transits to the Newport chart are similar to those of Hurricane Carol with the Neptune transiting closer to a conjunction with natal Uranus. Transiting Jupiter was conjunct the natal Moon to the degree.

August 19, 1955 Hurricane Diane. After reaching Virginia, stormy Diane recurved to the northeast in response to the weakening of the Bermuda-Azores high. She paralleled the south coast of New England as a tropical storm.. Diane brought heavy rain through New England and the rain-saturated area had no room for more. Many small rivers rose above their banks from mountain run-off and flooded towns throughout New England. Flood records were numerous throughout the northeast, and damage was high.

A year later after Hurricane Edna, transit Neptune was still hovering, conjunct natal Uranus in the 4th house and transit Mars egged on Neptune by exact sextile. Transit Uranus was about to conjoin the natal ascendant. Transit Saturn was also approaching the opposition to natal Sun by 2.5 degrees.

September 12-13, 1960 Hurricane Donna was the only hurricane of record to produce hurricane force winds from Florida all the way up the coast to New England. Extreme winds were found at Block Island, Rhode Island from 95mph with gusts up to 130 mph.

Transit Pluto and Neptune were in sextile aspect, affecting natal Venus, ruler of the 4th house cusp by square and quincunx aspect.

September 21,1961Hurricane Esther, a classical storm track up the East Coast threatened New England 23 years to the day of 1938 Hurricane. Rainfall measured 7 to 8 inches and wind gusts in southern New England to over 80 mph. Esther had a weird track that did a loop-de-loop in a circle off the southern New England coast.

There was a strong transit pattern of Saturn square to both Mercury and Mars and were conjunct the natal Uranus. An additional transit of Venus conjunct Uranus was also in square to natal Pluto by one degree. The midpoint of transiting Saturn and Jupiter could also be counted as a contributing factor as it was the same degree in square to natal Uranus.

February 6, 1978The Blizzard of 1978 generated extreme conditions across the Northeast, and began February 5, 1978. The next day, the storm had tracked north and taken on the cyclonic counter-clockwise flow characteristic of nor’easters but which made the storm comparable to a strong Category 1 hurricane.

Transit Pluto was at work again as it was conjunct the 4th house cusp. Transit Uranus was opposite the Sun while Neptune was quincunx the Sun. The Transit Sun squared its natal position and conjuncted natal Saturn. Mars brought on the chaotic condtions as it squared natal Uranus for the surprize factor in a storm that paralyzed the northeast for a week.

September 26, 1985 Hurricane Gloria brought gusts of 80 mph in southern New England. She was a significant hurricane in New England and the 1st major storm to affect entire region since Donna in 1960. Total storm damage in Carolinas and New England was near 1 billion dollars. Gloria arrived at low tide with a storm surge of about one foot. There was minor coastal flooding and damage in Rhode Island.

The lack of strong transits to the Rhode Island chart for this storm indicates the lesser intensity, damage and costs. Transit Pluto was close to two degrees square the ascendant and quincunx natal Mercury. Transit Neptune was quincunx the ascendant. Transiting Uranus was opposite natal Mars and Jupiter was transit trine to Venus.

August 19, 1991 Hurricane Bob set a record 24 hour precipitation total of 7.87 inches and wind gusts to 125 mph on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Heavy damage was reported in all of coastal New England. There was major flooding in most of the New England towns from this category two hurricane.

Transit Pluto was opposite the natal Sun and square to natal Saturn. Transit Saturn sits on the 7th house cusp opposite the ascendant.

July 13, 1996 Hurricane Bertha was an extremely rare Cape Verde storm, unprecedented for the time of year. This storm originated from an African wave about three weeks before the beginning of the “normal” Cape Verde season. Bertha did weaken to a tropical storm while moving through the Northeast States bringing very heavy rainfall and strong, gusty winds. Rainfall amounts of over 6 inches fell in some locations, including Maine. Winds were gusting to over 40 mph, and over 70 mph in Rhode Island and along coastal sections. Significant river and stream flooding caused problems. Three tornados were reported in New England, two in Rhode Island and one in Massachusetts. Bertha was only the 4th tropical system on record to directly affect New England in July with a previous one, Brenda, in 1960.

Transit Pluto was conjunct Jupiter and trine the ascendant while transit Neptune was square to natal Uranus by one degree. Transit Uranus was opposite the ascendant and trine to natal Mercury while transit Saturn sextiled natal Venus.

September 17, 1999 Hurricane Floyd didn’t pack as hard a punch in New England as many feared, but the storm still caused a number of problems. Floyd dumped over 9 inches of rain on parts of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, and strong winds toppled trees that knocked out power to more than 119,000 customers in New England.

Pluto and Mars were in transit conjunct, and were opposite natal Venus. Transit Neptune was exactly conjunct the natal 7th house cusp. Transit Saturn had just stationed retrograde at 17 degrees Taurus on the natal Sun

OBSERVATIONS AND CONCLUSIONS

The observation and analysis of the 1st and 4th house cusps and their ruling planets is essential to the study of long range weather forecasting using lunation charts. When the angle or cusp of the 1st and 4th houses, and/or the rulers are transited by planets there is a weather event. Transits to the same points and planets of the locational chart for Newport, RI are the highest totals.

The 4th and 1st house cusps and ruling planets, plus a planet close to the 4th house cusp of the Newport RI chart received the largest number of transits for the most significant storms of close to 400 years.

The ascendant/descendant (1st and 7th house cusps) axis is the horizon or the ‘lay of the land’. We can combine the ascendant hits with transits hits to the ruler of the ascendant the Sun. The total of sixteen and seven transits is twenty-six.

The 4th house cusp was determined important by Zain and later George J. McCormack, an astrometeorologist for 50 years, proposed the 4th house cusp to be the receiver of the energies of the planets using seasonal ingress charts and the lunation charts and he claims that about one half of the forecast comes from this point. The 4th and 1st house cusps on any chart are determined by the date, time and location data.

In the Newport chart, the cusp of the 4th house received eight hits and the ruler of the Libra cusp, Venus, received nine for a total of seventeen hits. Natal Uranus in the 4th house, close to the cusp received thirteen hits. Combining all three, the cusp of the 4th, the ruling planet of the 4th cusp and Uranus, in the 4th total came to an amazing 30 hits.

The conclusion is that a geographical located chart compared with transits is a valuable addition to the study of long range weather forecasting.

I am hoping to encourage astrologers to look further into the study of weather because we all talk about the weather and think there is nothing we can do about it. It is my hope to improve astrology’s image when more astrologers can provide accurate long range weather forecasts.

(not included here right now)  A recent addition to the weather website that was launched in May 2000, is a Tribute Page to those who are published and have made great strides in the field of long range forecasting. Well known astrologer Alphee Lavoie is featured here; he presented a lecture on long range weather forecasting to a group of astrologers in Rhode Island in the early 1990s. http://www.weathersage.com/tributes/

 

FUTURE FORECASTS

The article would not be complete without an idea of what the future may hold for Rhode Islan and nearby states in terms of dramatic weather events.  Judging only from the study of transits to the Newport chart, the 2007 and 2008 hurricane seasons  will have storms that will impact the region.  However, the outer planets are not in position to affect the major sensitive points that are listed in the table and damage may be minimal.

For the years 2009 and 2010, the Newport, RI chart is mostly quiet. In 2011 there will be concern for both the winter and hurricane seasons. In the year 2012, stressful transits to the Newport chart prevail from July through November with connections to the eclipse of November 13, 2012.  (Hurricane Sandy, October 29th, 2012 fulfills this forecast).

The element of chance is always present in the study of astrology prediction and Mother Nature has not yet revealed all her secrets, but with the current crew of astrometeorologists, we have enough insight and experience to strive for a 90 percent accurate seasonal forecast. In the one day forecast offered in the past (for sale), I did break Mother Nature’s code.  One particular success is the event of the ‘Nemo Bride’.  I was hired 9 months prior to the wedding to prepare a forecast which is recorded here:  http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_22556438/massachusetts-bride-nice-day-white-wedding

Astrologers of all levels can begin to forecast weather with information from the C.C. Zain book or a self-study course I have designed and available on this website. Adding a geographical location chart for your area will greatly add to the forecast.

The State of Florida chart from Penfield’s book is another excellent backup chart. (Fig. 2) A good exercise would be for the reader to select a few of the classic storms in Florida – Hurricane Andrew and the hurricanes of the 2004 season for starters. Set up the Florida chart with future lunations to see when strong transits to the angular houses, 1, 4, 7 and 10 will brew up another weather event.

A SEASON OF EARTHQUAKES and RIOTS?

worldmap2013

 

 

A SEASON OF EARTHQUAKES and RIOTS?

Click on the map to enlarge and/or print.

The time of the Sun entering the zodiac sign Capricorn, the solstice, is used to create a chart for any location on earth. More effective is the view of the same planets and aspects on a solarmap. Where the lines of the planets are seen we know that planet’s energy will be angular on a chart for the location. Angles on a zodiac chart are the 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th house cusps.

For the ingress of December 21, 2013, the planet lines are simply awesome. The featured combination of planets is the Mars and Uranus in opposition to each other. Find the Red and Orange lines on the world map and you will find wild, wacky and crazy types of weather and mundane events. Major upsets, uprisings and extreme weather are some of the expected events.

For the United States, the northeast is under the gun during wintertime. In weather, Mars is hot and dry and Uranus is freezing and dry. When the wet influences come along via the Moon and Venus, snow, sleet and ice are in the forecast in a combined event. A more detailed weather report is found in the national highlights or the New England winter forecast on this website.

On the mundane scene since Mars and Uranus are angular in Washington DC, the late great astrologer, Judy Johns, wrote that “Mars rules males in general and young males in particular. It indicates war in a general sense and rules the armed forces of the nation. In the US, it specifically rules the Army and Marines. Mars signifies the industrial labor force, heavy manufacturing, meat production, arms manufacture and the production of flammable chemicals. Mars rules many natural resources such as lumber, coffee, iron ore, and diamonds, the kind used for drilling and shaping very hard objects. Mars rules the police department and may indicate the criminal element and violent people in general. Mars rules the Attorney General, the US ‘top cop’.”

Judy wrote an extended piece on Uranus. The highlights are “Uranus rules the House of Representatives which is comprised o members that are representational of the total population census by each individual state. The House tends to be more urban and modern in thinking, the
Senate tends to be more conservative. It is the House that controls the purse-strings in America.”

“Uranus rules invention, technology and high frequency communications. Uranus can indicate uprisings or revolutions and is connected with explosions and detonations. In some cases, it can bring civil disobedience or boycotts used as a protest movement. Uranus is connected with terrorism, particularly if explosives are used.

“Under stress (the opposition of the two planets is very stressful) ingress Uranus often indicates strikes and rioting and seems to take up where Mars leaves off. Uranus is one of the prime significators of earthquakes and other violent upheavals of nature. An afflicted Uranus can bring demonstrations, airline crashes, train derailing and explosions. In nature, it generates earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes and severe lightning storms with high winds.”

MARS URANUS in EARTHQUAKE ZONES

Viewing the world map at Chile, Argentina, the stress of Mars and Uranus on the horizon flows over the entire west coast where their climate features quakes on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. On the other side of the world, the pair are on the horizon over Indonesia and I would include the Phillipines. In the local chart for Indonesia, we can include Pluto as an instigator in the 4th house here, completing a T-square of very rough energy.

 On the meridian (4th and 10th cusps) the two planets are over Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, another quake prone region whose local chart includes Pluto in square aspect to the local horizon. Hawaii may be rumbling as well with a similar chart.

Central Europe is in the crosshairs of Mars and Uranus. The Ukraine has seen demonstrations in December but I think it is more possible for extreme weather events. The current uprising is significant and needs more analysis to forecast future events. Richard Nolle should have more detail and can be seen at his website http://www.astropro.com/new.html

Radical and Intense, the 7 Squares of Uranus and Pluto

RADICAL AND INTENSE, THE NEW WORLD ORDER

 

From the Uranus and Pluto conjunction in 1965
To the Opening Square in 2012 or Perhaps Sooner

Originally posted October 2008

Preface

The original intention of the article was to present a timeline of historical events that occurred during the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in the 1960s then to examine what the opening square might hold in the coming years. While there are plenty of references to historical events, the article contains more useful information as to when the effects of outer planet transits actually begin and end. My years of experience with lunations and weather forecasting led me to try to explain how the planet energies actually play out, much before the expected timing.

The Conjunction Aspect

Do the effects of an outer planet square begin on the exact date of the transit or even sooner giving a one or two degree orb? Many an astrologer would say yes to the question, but as an experienced long range weather forecaster, I can say the answer is no. The effects of this major square will begin to impact us and the world as soon as next year as evidenced by studying the lunations.

In the 20th century, Uranus and Pluto conjoined on October 9, 1965, but the effects of the planet pairing began years earlier. Here in the United States the culture shock that resulted reverberates in our daily life with every waking breath brought the new and constantly changing world to a crescendo. People of the world watched America grow into a Superpower and succeed on many levels. The strength of our nation as a world leader is now being tested and will continue to be tested as the square between the planets applies over the next several years and for years beyond 2012, hence, the New World Order.

Since the 1960s, the culture shock brought the technological explosion, the sexual revolution, the drug culture, the population explosion, the deadly political climate and the Moon landing – all to be revisited and revised under the stress and strain a square aspect can produce.

For the first time in history, the common man had a ringside seat to the world watching a television that took months to acquire (there was a waiting list back in the 1960s) to watch the news of the changes coming to daily life. The war in Viet Nam, the burning bras as a feminist movement became headline and TV news. A typical citizen of the times would be the home maker with children and a husband who was climbing a solid and predictable career ladder. Popular TV shows were Father Knows Best – remember that one? Lost in Space was another favorite show that captured the sense of the new energy about to rock the world. Yet the 1960s were disruptive and can be compared to what is happening today.

With television talk shows gaining popularity, the now famous Tonight Show featured Paul R. Ehrlich, an entomologist, who was also researching human overpopulation. In 1968 he wrote a book, The Population Bomb, where he reflected on a world of two billion beings increasing to six billion beings by the year 2000 and the chaos that overpopulation would cause. He was right! We now know crowded highways as well as stiff competition for jobs are but a few of the current problems. The square aspect will play a part in resolving those issues and many more.

The horror show of the violent side of the Uranus and Pluto conjunction in the 1960s were the assassinations of the first Catholic president elected, John F. Kennedy and John’s brother Robert Kennedy with Martin Luther King and Malcolm X finding their date with destiny as well. It was a time of race riots, Go-Go Girls, The Great Blackout in the northeast, and Cassius Clay (aka Mohammed Ali). The new technology enabled the USA to have the first Man on the Moon and an artificial heart plus heart transplant successes.

The list goes on and on and the conjunction has left us a heritage of social change that will be recorded in the history tablets as an awakening beyond belief. Since the 1960s the phrase ‘may you live in interesting times’ has often been repeated and nevermore so right now.

The Square Aspect

We are now approaching the opening square of Uranus and Pluto, first exact square on June 24, 2012. Astrologers around the globe are familiar with this particular year because of the prophecies that currently exist, one being that the Mayan calendar ends at this time. Bruce Scofield has studied this area of astrology and should be read to better understand the premise. Gary Christen, president of Astrolabe, Inc. has spoken of the future in his annual solstice talks for many years. You would be wise to listen to the talks and reflect on the possibilities that befall us in the years to come. Gary is a master Uranian astrologer and paints a rational picture of what he thinks we can expect.

A square between planets usually indicates a time of stress and decision making under duress. It is a forced action, a difficulty between the two energies. Both planets involved in the Uranus Pluto square are what we term ‘outer planets’ and are labeled as planets of radical change and violence, or in weather forecasting, the specialty study of the author, the forecast would include the phrases of high pressure with sudden temperature changes along with intense pressure and violent shifts of temperature. In winter, extraordinary cold and summer, extraordinary heat. Either would be extreme conditions.

As a people, we may try to resist change, but with Pluto entering the picture, there is no way to bargain with the energy. I think of Pluto as a tidal wave…or tsunami of energy that moves onto the globe. A good example is to understand how the world has changed because of the internet since another important conjunction took place, the Uranus and Neptune in the early 1990s. About 500 years earlier, the tidal wave energy of the printing press affected the world.

The point is to understand what the conjunction aspect of Uranus and Pluto has brought to society, then to figure out what areas of life will have an ungodly shift now that the opening square is soon to be in effect. How would the early effects of these transits affect the individual?

What do you consider to have been ‘extreme’ changes since the 1960s? Would it be the sexual revolution or the drug culture, the space age, or the age of computers and the internet? The idea is to explore how the changes will affect the individual or the country? We are moving so fast in this modern age that absorbing the ‘new’ in relation to the ‘old’ is almost impossible. Older folks can easily see how well the younger generation has managed the new technology – they were born into it. For the elderly, it is very difficult to let go of the old ways; some never will and will be left behind to reflect on the way it ‘used to be’.

Uranus will move into the youthful sign Aries and is sure to bring the new, the progressive, and the sudden and shocking aggressive nature of Uranus. Pluto would be more conservative in the sign Capricorn, therefore the word revolutionary actions is not farfetched at all.

I would also like to point out that as of the writing of this article, the presidential election on November 4, 2008 promotes the word ‘change’ – it is the major sound byte of the current campaign. The current astrological transit (Nov 2008) of Saturn in opposition to Uranus is in concert with the fall of Wall St. and the problems with the banking industry – shocking to most and a panic for many.

Panic is a word easily said when there is a hard aspect from Uranus due to the shock value associated with the planet. If we understand a coming panic, just as we understand the approach of a hurricane, then we can begin to prepare for what is needed to survive in a stressful time in history. A panic situation throws the general public into chaos and chaos can touch anyone. Jolting us into a new financial reality, the opposition of Saturn and Uranus is just the first of five oppositions through 2010, sort of greasing the way for the changes that will without a doubt take place under the Uranus square Pluto as the higher order of change.

Historical Facts – Will History Repeat itself Again?

Historical events of the past can be examined to remind us of what the future may hold. Using our wonderful systems of astrology (western tropical) should give us images and ideas of when the wave of the future will affect the world and right down to our own personal involvement.

After the initial conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in 1965, the dates of the opening squares are essential to review. In the year 1500, there was a single exact square of Uranus and Pluto. In 1623 to 1624 there were three exact squares to contend with. However, from 1755 to 1758, the radical colonists felt the changing times with seven riveting squares propelling them into the future from revolution to war. During those years, it was dissention and taxation that led to the separation from the mother country – England. In 1876 to 1877, three exact squares highlighted a severe and historical panic. The dates of the panic from 1873-1878 clearly identify the early influence of the opening square before the first exact contact.

Here are some of the many highlights of the 1876 timeline:

  • Korea becomes independent.
  • Middle East events are numerous.
  • The Bulgarian Massacre by the Turks.
  • Serbia and Montenegro declare war on Turkey.
  • Colorado becomes a state.
  • The election (Tilden vs. Hayes) in the USA is disputed over 20 votes – Electoral College.
  • The telephone was invented.
  • Anthrax was discovered.
  • Deutsche Reichsbank opens January 1, 1876
  • Panic on Wall St. from 1873 to recovery in 1878

Future Opening Squares – Seven Exact Squares!

The opening square of Uranus and Pluto begins on June 24, 2012 and lasts through March 16, 2015, seven exact squares. It is overwhelming to think of this length of time for the kind of energy we will experience. And, in actuality, the effects of the square will begin much earlier, in 2009 and last well beyond 2015. The early effects from the Saturn and Uranus opposition have already been experienced. Before long, the early effects of the opening square of Uranus and Pluto will be quite evident. The 1965 conjunction Uranus and Pluto in Virgo along with the opposition to Saturn all took place in mutable signs. When Uranus and Pluto are in the cardinal signs of Aries and Capricorn beginning in 2010, the rapid advances will begin.

Forecasting With Lunations – How to view the early arrival of planet energies.

Many astrologers or astrometeorologists work with the lunations, observing the effects of the new, full and quarter Moons at a chosen location. When the angles of a lunar phase chart are populated by 2 or more planets within a close orb of a few degrees, it is called a mundane square or we say that the planets are in paran. A paran is when two or more planets are angular, such as on a lunation or other mundane chart, when in longitude, but the orb of aspect can be wide or even none at all. The nature of the planets is the energy that will manifest and the nature of the planet is modified by the sign it occupies and by the aspects it makes to other planets. Once understood, it is not complicated at all. The explosive nature of the mundane square is as potent as any square in orb in signs.

During the early morning of the full Moon September 15, I awoke to the news that Lehman Brothers had gone down the tubes, so to speak. The lunation had Uranus with the Moon which would explain the shock value of the news. Saturn on this day was applying to the opposition with Uranus, but it would seem that the energy had played out the message. I wrote to a few of my email groups with the observation that the applying opposition is playing out the chaos and disorder promised when the opposition was exact. Later that same day, the market dropped about 500 points and since then, the domino effect has brought down many a once fine establishment. The world is on edge and on October 29th, TV investment reporters said that this action (Lehman’s collapse) will bring more stability to the banking world. However, the TV investment reports didn’t say when, obviously because they just don’t know. The lunations are the way to see the early effects of planetary transits.

The autumn weather through December 21, 2008 is as chaotic as the financial message – early winter and stormy weather events. As the season unfolds, by November the weather will deteriorate along the northeast USA. Keep in mind that the rest of the nation will experience the same stormy fronts that will affect New England as the weather usually comes ashore in the northwest and over the plains onto the east, sometimes south, just west or over the northeast.

There are a number of lunations in this autumn 2008 season that produce a forecast of severe storms. Mercury flits from one hard aspect to another with the malefics. This same stormy energy relates to mundane events as well, giving a clear indication of trouble in the political world and financial world.

The Presidency 2009 – 2012

If chaos reigns for the next several years and beyond, what can a president accomplish?

Two new articles on the weathersage.com website presents the late Ann Parker’s excellent work on the presidency and the power aspect. Both candidates had a power aspect that peaked and passed and is now in a separating mode at the time of election. John McCain has the edge in the power aspect; the full details found in the articles.

The effect is decidedly an inability to work successfully with anything new during the term of office. Picking up the pieces of the erratic markets will be a full time workload as well as the residual problems. The specific aspect that each of the candidates has is one that Ann found to also indicate the length of service and the type of presidency that will result. Again, whoever wins the office will serve one term only and will have less focus, power and accomplishment.

I interpret this autumn 2008 season to be the harbinger of change that is more obvious than not. Astrologers have seen the enormous changes coming for many years – and the changes will have to be dealt with by whoever is elected. It will be impossible to keep any individual campaign promises or plans.

George W. Bush is in charge until January – how will he handle any of it or will he just hand it over to the next president?

Winter 2013 Long Range Forecast for New England

 LONG RANGE WEATHER FORECAST for the

EXTRAORDINARY WINTER OF 2013-14

By Carolyn Egan, Bristol RI, USA 79TH season

Check out the Blog at: http://www.weathersage.com for National Highlights

EXTREME WEATHER – WINTER 2013-14

The extreme weather we have experienced over the past several years is convincing for any skeptic of alternative weather forecasting. No other forecaster has seen this far into the future of weather based on astrometeorology.

NEW ENGLAND WINTER FORECAST 2013-14

 In this report you will find weekly summaries of the weather forecast for the entire season, truly long range forecasting. When an ordered one day specific weather forecast was available, my accuracy was 100%, breaking Mother Nature’s code looking up to and beyond one year into the future. Seems unlikely to the skeptic, but the last 100% forecast I made was for the Nemo bride. http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_22556438/massachusetts-bride-nice-day-white-wedding

The winter season will have a typical New England variety of weather during most of the weeks. It will be mostly a moisture filled season peppered with the wild and wacky antics that extreme cold and extreme warm fronts can produce. Many storms are noted in the weekly summaries.

The wind is a component of the models used for the forecast. Be sure to read what is in store for the winter winds. For your convenience, a very quick look is provided at the ‘At A Glance’ section. The 13 week seasonal forecasts follow.

DISCLAIMER: Weather descriptions in this report are not meant to raise panic, but to only assure you that severe weather is a part of the forecast. It is my intention to alert you to the possibilities and to remind you that some of the storms are localized and preparedness is the key to personal safety.

Reviewing Fall forecasts: ACCURATE! Typical of New England there will be delightful weather through the end of October and a bit into November. Also typical is when the pattern changes occur in November where variable conditions along with cold and snowy weather prevail and early winter sets in.

NEW ENGLAND HINTS FOR SPRING 2014 WEATHER

Oh the welcomed warmth of spring. A wet season ahead but warm!

FORECAST – WEEKLY SUMMARIES for New England and the Northeast

The following forecasts contain weekly summaries describing the general weather for each 7-8 day lunar period. Not all weather events are described.

WINTER SEASON begins December 21, 2013 Perigee Moons Jan 1 and 30th, 2014

November 17 – 24, 2013 Full Moon

Stormy times ahead. A windy snowstorm. Wet heavy snow in New England hopefully on the mild side (my indicators). A week with a few moisture events.

November 25 – December 1, 2013 Quarter Moon Nov 28, Thanksgiving

More moisture ahead with winds that are indicated to be a tempest. A variable but stormy Thanksgiving week is forecast.

December 2 – 8, 2013 New Moon Perigee Dec 4.

A combination of extreme cold and very fair weather is forecast for this week. The cold is very obvious in the models but secondary indications are for fair and perhaps moisture events on the 5th. Snow or rain – can’t be sure.

December 9 – 16, 2013 Quarter Moon

Temperatures begin to drop this period. Bitter in New England is very likely with a low pressure event bringing snow over to the next period. It’s not winter yet!!

December 17 – 24, 2013 Full Moon

Precipitation to start the period. An aggressive warmfront meets up with very cold air resulting in wild and wacky weather feeding into the next period, in time for the holiday.

WINTER

December 25 – 31 – Quarter Moon

Precipitation is called for this period. Snow is likely in many locations. Icy, windy and stormy conditions for the holiday. Accidents are prominent this week; don’t be in one of them. Be aware, be diligent and responsible. The mid Atlantic states look to be in the crosshairs.

January 1, 2014 – January 6 – New Moon Perigee Jan 1 SUPERMOON

A strong warm front and cold air often make for an unstable atmostphere. Clashing cymbals and Thunder snow may start this period. The cold remains with rain/snow the 6-7th. Clouds and fair weather days make up some of this period as well. More precipitation at the end wafts up bringing coastal rain (snow in higher elevations).

A very strong storm offshore in the Atlantic may affect Bermuda.

January 7 – 14, 2014 Quarter Moon

A cold front comes through with dry air. Clouds form and arrive dropping moisture, mostly rain, near the 14th. A mixed week at best.

January 15 – 23, 2014 Full Moon

Sunny and dry for openers. A warming trend wafts in and the atmosphere becomes unstable. Rain mid period, then snow is in the forecast 22-23rd.

January 24 – 29, 2014 Quarter Moon

Freezing air, strong winds (a tempest) and moisture. Ingredients for a winter storm for the start and then at the end of the period.

January 30 – February 5, 2014 New Moon Perigee Jan 30 SUPERMOON and

SUPERBOWL in New Jersey

The base of air is cold and mostly dry. There are warming influences combining with the base to create clouds, then precipitation. Combine a big wind influence and there is a coastal storm. Rain; snow in higher elevations not welcome this period! A supermoon intensifies stormy weather and can elevate a mere squall onto another level. More wind later in the period along with fair conditions.

UPDATE as of January 8, 2014.  The Super Bowl date is Sunday February 2, 2014.  My forecast above doesn’t change.  The storm will happen and all indications are for severity.  My thoughts are related to the fact that long range forecasting is available.  A firm by the name of Planalytics has long range weather for sale.  If the Superbowl planners did not use this service (they didn’t use mine!) they were not doing their job.  If they did consult with a long range forecaster, then they know the outcome of the weather and perhaps have reason either not to believe the results or work around it.  My forecast has an abundance of both warm and cold (freezing) indications that it is hard to call.  I lean towards more rain for New Jersey but don’t guarantee it.  I’ll let the speculation go on.  Carolyn Egan, Long Range Weather Forecaster.

February 6 – 13, 2014 Quarter Moon

Cool to cold, mostly dry, and blustery. Snow 6-7th and 10-11th. The winds may perk up mid period leading to sharp contrasts in temperature during the week which may be considered wild and wacky.

 

February 14 – 21, 2014 Full Moon Valentine’s day

At first look, the models showed few weather influences, but, after a closer analysis, it will be a mix instead. Amid a few fine days is the strong winds and stormy conditions 15th and 19th. Be prepared for snarled traffic.

February 22 – 28, 2014 Quarter Moon Perigee Feb 27

Looking for early spring but instead, more mixed conditions. It will be cold with short warming periods, rain/snow mix. Delightful winter days as well; dare we call it early spring – I think we are anxious.

March 1 – 7, 2014 New Moon

The variability of the weather (as forecasted earlier) continutes with another mixed week, however, with different weather influences as many fronts are congregating. A warming trend combines with very cold air and produces snow in higher elevations and rain along the coast. March winds are on schedule.

March 8 – 15, 2014 Quarter Moon

Finally! A better week ahead. It will be mild. A delightful calm before the high wind and some rain coming up 10-11th.

March 16 – 23, 2014 Full Moon

Oh the wrath of St. Patrick! Almost never fails to have strong weather on his day.

Strong winds on the 17th…what else, it’s St. Patrick’s day. Wet snow changing to rain. More and much stronger winds on the 20th – winds push the water – remember ‘Sandy’. A low pressure system intensifies the weather and when all is combined, a loss of power should top off the end of winter. Sunshine this period as well. Happy Spring!

WINTER 2013-14 Long Range Weather Forecast

USA LONG RANGE WEATHER FORECAST for the EXTRAORDINARY WINTER OF 2013-14

By Carolyn Egan, Bristol RI, USA 79TH season

EXTREME WEATHER – WINTER 2013-14

The forecasted extreme weather we have experienced over the past several years is convincing for any skeptic of alternative weather forecasting. No other forecaster has seen this far into the future of weather based on astrometeorology.

In this report you will find national trends and weekly summaries of the weather forecast for the entire season, truly long range forecasting. This forecast does not change – ever – during the season. When one day specific weather forecastes were available, my accuracy was 100%, breaking Mother Nature’s code looking up to and beyond one year into the future. Seems unlikely to the skeptic, but the last 100% forecast I made was for the Nemo bride. http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_22556438/massachusetts-bride-nice-day-white-wedding

 

WINTER 2013-14 NATIONAL TRENDS – ACROSS THE USA

WITH SOLAR MAPPING

The California coast has a miserable weather influence for winter. The green line of Venus produces moisture. In the winter it would be a cold rain, sleet or snow. In California, along the coast it would be damp, drizzle and rain. Crossing with Venus is the brown line of Saturn which emphasizes the gloomy weather often producing low pressure systems or stormy weather in general. For the California coast, the combination of these two weathermakers will also make headlines. With heavy rain comes mudslides and street flooding.

Typical of the northwest section of the country, the inundation of blustery winter systems will occur, also making headline news for unstable weather patterns bringing wild, wacky and crazy weather events.

Further inland from the southwest up through the Dakotas and beyond is the Moon black line. A prominent Moon invites mega moisture. From rain to snow, she will produce abundant downfall as she colludes, by aspect with Saturn which results in problems or damages to the environment.

At the center of the US, the aqua line of Neptune is also a moisture producer. Neptune tends to accent the described weather and with plenty of moisture coming from the Moon line which will travel to central US. In this location, there is a bit more warmth which creates fog and mists or pollution at times, even though winter will be generally cold. Pisces, the sign on the horizon in the central states is a nebulous moist influence but in this region, the cold and biting wind is alleviated only somewhat.

The winds will blow, more than usual, in Chicago and Detroit and the surrounding states. They will bring in bitter cold at times ramp to gale force with midwinter the coldest, freezing period.

In the south, southeast, wintertime tornadoes will be the norm for this extreme season. Mercury, the deep purple line is affecting most of the nation with extraordinary winds and cold. Further south in Florida, the cold is tempered by the Sun but when combined, Sun and Mercury are hot and cold fronts or in general, turbulent skies. Early in March spring weather is expected in Florida with a good warmup.

At the mid Atlantic location, there will be more wet weather and sharp temperature changes throughout the season. Tornadoes could make it this far east and the freezing temperatures will not be welcome. Violent weather events are the signature for this area.

In the northeast, the shifting temperatures will provide the usual variety of weather systems to impact the area. Escape from the extreme cold and turbulence is not possible, but having respite between systems is a good thing. Look for the weekly weather summaries for New England on this website.

NEW ENGLAND WINTER FORECAST 2013-14

DISCLAIMER: Weather descriptions in this report are not meant to raise panic, but to only assure you that severe weather is a part of the forecast. It is my intention to alert you to the possibilities and to remind you that some of the storms are localized and preparedness is the key to personal safety.

 

Reviewing Fall forecasts: ACCURATE! Typical of New England there will be delightful weather through the end of October and a bit into November. Also typical is when the pattern changes occur in November where variable conditions along with cold and snowy weather prevail and early winter sets in.

The wind is a component of the models used for the forecast. Be sure to read what is in store for the winter winds. For your convenience, a very quick look is provided at the ‘At A Glance’ section. The 13 week seasonal forecasts follow.

NEW ENGLAND HINTS FOR SPRING 2014 WEATHER

Oh the welcomed warmth of spring. A wet season ahead but warm!

THE SYSTEM

Forecasting weather is developed here using a system designed hundreds of years ago using the natural forces in our solar system including the earth and the Moon. The current astronomers and scientists were the first astrologers and now scoff at their roots. With a bit of effort, they could learn our system to be able to include long range forecasting in their repetoire.

The long range forecasting tradition is carried on today where we are able to forecast weather for the next year or beyond. Our work is derived from the position of the planets in relation to a particular location on the date of the seasonal change. Weekly details are formed by using the models of the new, full and quarter Moons.

My report delivers national trends and a free weekly observation of the weather for the northeast. The client list for an accurate future one day forecast is long and with 100% accuracy. The ‘Nemo’ bride for the Feburary 9, 2013 blizzard is one example. Check out the link: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_22556438/massachusetts-bride-nice-day-white-wedding The blizzard was included in my New England winter report. The bride’s report was ordered in September 2012.

Currently, the ongoing forecast of extreme weather is at the halfway mark in the 10 year forecast written in 2008 and no other forecaster can match that record.

With that, it is safe to say that extreme weather will continue and the general public should be prepared and pay attention to the dangers within one’s environment. Wouldn’t you like to forecast weather? Take the course.

 MOON PERIGEE & SYZYGY ** SuperMoons–2 SuperMoons for Winter ’13

TERMINOLOGY

*Perigee periods, as noted in the forecasts, occur when the Moon is closest to Earth every month. The trend for weather is toward intensification with the stronger gravitational pull of the Moon on Earth at this time. The tides will be higher and lower than normal near the exact date, plus there will be an increase in the wind activity. When the Moon is at perigee and at the same time it is also a new or full Moon, it is called a ‘SuperMoon’.

A syzygy is a situation where three celestial bodies are positioned along a straight line. The term is also applied to each instance of New Moon or Full Moon when Sun and Moon are in conjunction or opposition, even though they are not precisely on one line with the Earth.

**SuperMoon is a term coined by Richard Nolle, Astrologer. He defines the SuperMoon as a perigee-syzygy; namely a new or full moon which occurs at or near (within 90% of) perigee. Check his website for the complete list of SuperMoon dates. http://www.astropro.com/features/

BLIZZARD OF 1913 ANALYSIS

BLIZZARD OF 1913

Thanks to the Farmer’s Almanac for the on-line article about the Great Lakes Blizzard of 1913. The highlight was the fact of a great snowstorm in November, rather than the typical winter months.

It is a good storm to examine through astrometeorology and to see if the storm could have been forecast. My thought is that YES and well in advance, even years. Examining the past storms always help to determine what triggers a storm forecast.

1913 Blizzard

1913 Blizzard

Analysis

For those of you who have studied my weather course or follow C. C. Zain’s method, this chart will be quite obvious for the energy it holds. The lunation is a quarter Moon, Nov. 5, 1913 located at Detroit, MI. Quarter Moons are known as ‘crisis’ Moons as the Sun and Moon are in square aspect.

The all important 4th cusp, about 50% of the forecast, is Gemini, a cold, dry sign. The ruler of Gemini is perched on an angle up at the 10th house. The usual indications are for very cold air and more than likely make headline news, which it did.

On the first house cusp the sign is Aquarius, a freezing, dry sign. About another 25% of the forecast information. Perched on the cusp is the Moon, the most wet indicator. The forecast is cold and wet. Mercury on an angle guarantees wind. Planets on the angles of a chart can make up the rest of the forecast. If you checked out the solar map for this lunation, you would find Mercury and Moon lines crossing in the vicinity of the lakes.

Pearce’s Weather Bits

 

PEARCE’S WEATHER BITS

Highlights – Condensed from
The Textbook of Astrology, book 3, Astro-Meteorology,
by Alfred John Pearce

By their science the Egyptian astrologers could foretell years of scarcity and plenty, pestilence, earthquakes, inundations, and the appearance of comets, and do many other things surpassing the sagacity of the vulgar.

The State-endowed Meteorologic Office frequently fails to foretell the general character of the weather only twenty-four hours in advance, and dare not attempt to forecast the general character of a coming season.

Archimedes discovered the law of specific gravity; and Galileo discovered the law, which is the basis of mechanics. The laws of Kepler, as they are called from their discoverer, are 3 important general facts in astrology.

  1. The orbits of the planets are ellipses, with the Sun in one of the foci.
  2. The planets move over equal areas in equal times.
  3. The squares of the times of revolution of any 2 planets are to each other in the same proportion as the cubes of their mean distances from the Sun. (this 3rd law may justly be regarded as the most remarkable and the most pregnant with important consequences.

Kepler found from pure observation that the ancients were right when they averred that “sublunary natures are excited by the conjunctions and aspects of the planets.”

An aspect is an angle formed on the earth by the luminous beams of two planets, of strength to stir up the virtue of sublunary things. When two of the heavenly bodies are in conjunction or opposition, they have nearly the same declination, and act powerfully on the earth and its atmosphere, because they attract in the same line; they rise, culminate, and set nearly together, when in conjunction; when in opposition, one rises as the other sets, one is in the upper when the other is in the lower meridian.

Observation shows that certain of the celestial bodies are in certain relative positions when excess of heat or drought prevails, excess of cold or moisture prevails. ……. hence,

  1. That the said positions of those celestial bodies are the original, though not the proximate, causes of such atmospheric phenomena.
  2. That, since the periods at which such celestial positions shall recur can always be accurately computed, it is possible to foretell the periods concurrent therewith, at which such atmospheric phenomena will also recur.

It is observed that when Mercury is in conjunction with the Sun, the atmosphere is greatly disturbed, and the wind is strong; in winter, hurricanes sometimes happen, as in Dec. 1863.

Search for the causes of variations in the seasons – of a hot or a cool summer, of a severe or a mild winter – and of the visitations of drought, floods, storms, etc.

When Sun is in conjunction, parallel, opposition, sextile, quartile or trine aspect with Jupiter, the weather is warm and is usually fine except in aspect to Saturn or Uranus.

The author said Sun Spots will never lead to the discovery of the laws regulating the weather.

Moon

Great changes of weather are often found to occur when the Moon is in major aspect with the Sun and one or more of the larger planets simultaneously. Hence the following aphorisms were compiled two centuries since: “If the Moon after conjunction or opposition with the Sun, immediately apply to Saturn, especially in water signs, rain shall follow.” “If the Moon apply to Jupiter, fine weather, with hardly any rain will follow.” “If the Moon apply to Mars, rain will follow, unless Mars be in Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, or in aspect with Jupiter. If Mars be in aspect with Venus or Saturn, much rain will follow.” “If the new Moon apply to Venus, without doubt rain will follow, unless she is in aspect with Jupiter. If Venus be in aspect with Saturn or Uranus, cold, rain, or snow according to the season will follow.” If the new Moon apply to Mercury retrograde, rain will follow. If Mercury be with Venus or Saturn, much rain. If with Mars or Jupiter, warm or dry weather may be expected. Brisk winds will follow.”

Out of 760 rains, 646 began when the Moon was very near the upper or lower meridian, or very near rising or setting. (Angles)

Changes of weather take place more frequently at the first quarter and the last sextile than at any other period of lunations-but the nature of the change depends on the planet with which the Sun and Moon may be configurated at.

Jupiter

Jupiter is fruitful and airy, and expressly connected with winds proceeding from the north. The position of Jupiter in the western angle at the vernal equinox of 1864 was followed by a remarkably fine, warm and dry season.

If Jupiter be in an angle at a solstice or an equinox, or receive the application of the Moon at new moon, a temperate, good and wholesome air and a season favourable to the increase and fructifying of that which is sown and planted in the earth will follow. The ancients held that the action of Jupiter was varied in signs. When in Cancer, Aquarius or Pisces, more rain falls.

Saturn

When Saturn is in aspect to the Sun, the action is to condense aqueous vapour, to lower the temperature of the air. In contrast to Jupiter’s health giving breezes, Saturn brings bleak, bronchitis-producing easterly winds or a stagnant, mephitic atmosphere favouring the spread of fevers. Spring blossoms can be blighted or, if summer, crops are injured.

When Saturn crosses the equator; the atmosphere is greatly disturbed. (once every 15 yrs).

Mars

Mars when in an angle at the equinox or solstice promotes evaporation and raises the temperature, causing a drier state of the weather than Jupiter, particularly when in Aries, Leo, or Cancer.

When Mars is in conjunction or opposition with Sun, calorific influence is usually observed to extend over a period of 2 to 5 days before the completion of the aspect, and a reaction frequently takes place immediately after.

Mars when in power generally causes such mischief and destruction as are concomitant with dryness. The atmosphere parched by hot, pestilential, and blasting winds, accompanied by drought. At sea, ships suddenly wrecked by the turbulence of the wind and strokes of lightning. Rivers fail and springs dry up.

Mars in Leo has power. Close to the meridian in Leo, stationary, the winter quarter was fair and mild, and the driest of the century in England for solstice Dec. 22, 1883.

Venus

Venus exerts a temperate and moist influence when in one of the angles at the equinox or solstice, when in conjunction and parallel declination with the Sun, and when in the equator.

Mercury

The electric planet (some say) produces rapid changes of weather. It generates in the atmosphere turbulent, sharp and variable winds. This if in conjunction or opposition with Mars, Jupiter or Saturn and especially if at the same time in or near the equator of tropics or in sign Scorpio or Leo or with Sun and Moon at eclipse.

The Sun in conjunction with Mercury is more prone to send us a hurricane than the Sun with Venus.

Mercury was in the 4th angle and nearly sextile aspect with Uranus. The fearfully severe winter followed with terrible blizzards with appalling loss of life. (Dec. 21, 1887 in Washington.)

Uranus

Disturbance caused by Uranus usually sets in very suddenly and can take shape of hailstorms. Tends to condense aqueous vapours and to lower the temperature of the air. Uranus in the 4th angle seems to threaten much damage by storms, more particularly in Scotland.

Neptune

There is evidence that Neptune in the equator disturbed the weather. Neptune in the 4th angle brought a cold and wet summer disastrous for farmers.

Mutual conjunctions and oppositions of the Planets

Mars and Saturn when in conjunction, more particularly when their declinations are the same and when the Moon happens to be in the same position cause a turbulent state of atmosphere. Conjunction of Mars and Saturn brought great winds and sometimes rain at any season of the year (in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces). Thunder lightning, also inundations.

Dr. Goad records a dreadful tempest, wind, rain, and hail on the 13th of Nov. 1664 in England following the conjunction of Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius 27 degrees on the 12th. This combination produces storms and great disturbance of weather.

Jupiter and Saturn disturb the weather very greatly. Once every 20 years. Produces cold and dry weather, occasionally fogs. Mars and Jupiter do not always raise the temperature and promote evaporation. In Aries – great cold; in Taurus, snow; and in Leo, great cold.

Venus with Saturn produces either cold weather or much downfall; frequently fog, and sometimes strong gales.

Mercury with Mars is productive of vehement winds. Mercury with Jupiter frequently produces strong winds, and usually raises the temperature, sometimes thunderstorms.

Venus with Mars on the whole inclining more to warmth then cold. Overlook none of the conjunctions. When 3 or more planets are near together in longitude, great disturbance of the atmosphere is found to result.
