Saturday, July 4, 2009, 03:48 AMAfter a springtime that was cool and wet, an accurate long range forecast, and after another early summer period of thunderstorms, lightning and gloom, the weather has turned around.
Amid a last gasp of a heavy downpour on Friday, July 3rd, the skies cleared for the concert and fireworks here in Bristol, RI where the oldest patriotic parade is held every year.
Because of the extended rain, clouds, doom and gloom, locals found it hard to believe that the Sun would shine on the 4th of July. The common reply was, well, I'll keep my fingers crossed that you are right. OK - you can uncross now. We have a 100% accurate forecast and brilliant sunshine at 7am, July 4th, 2009.
Astrometeorology is growing by leaps and bounds. Students of the weather course are being published and earning money. Best of all,
the basic study of astrometeorology is easy enough for the novice astrologer to learn and well organized for the experienced astrologer. See more details at the weathersage website by clicking on the above link.
How did I single out July 4th as a day of SunShine? The transiting Sun crossed the 4th house cusp of the Cancer Sun ingress chart!

Wednesday, June 24, 2009, 03:55 PM - MusingsScrewed? Did that word get your attention? If so, I couldn't use the word canceled because amazingly enough, one of our TV meteorologists used that word tonight. How did he know? Could it be that many are awaiting my seasonal forecasts, read, then forecast. I wouldn't put it past them to do that because they need so much help!
My long range forecast for summer in New England is dismal. There is so much crappy - another good word - weather that for July and August there is but one good vacation week. September is another story, but by then the kids are back in school and vacation time is over.
The only good thing about knowing what the weather will be like for summer is that you can plan around it. With lowered incomes and people losing their jobs left and right, perhaps more time can be spent with people you love. Getting back to basics can be an incredible awakening to having people in your life instead of things.
Once in a while when there is a mega snowstorm, people are forced to stay home from work, could lose the power and need to play 'Fish' with young children, by lamp or candlelight. It can be a time that assaults the senses when the senses are used to an incredible stimulation from the moment we wake up.
I realize I speak from a particular point of view and not for every situation but these are good and stable and solid values that Americans have enjoyed for so many years. We have lived with TV, Cell Phones, Computers and an ever expanding horizon for several years and I can see how it has taken its toll on our lives. OUr new Tower of Babel brings world wide events into our daily lives, many times creating more stress, yet would we be without it?
To end this rant, I would like to encourage those who must live with this New England summerless summer to find healthy alternatives. You may discover many jewels of love and affection from those you spend time with or help out.
It is not only New England that has a dismal forecast. Extreme weather much like the extreme changes that are going on in the world are everywhere. Accept that it is time for change and take care of yourself, your loved ones and your family in the best way that you can. Think about it.
Monday, June 1, 2009, 04:57 AMThree cheers for the U. S. Weather Service. The National Hurricane Center forecasters say a near-normal Atlantic hurricane season is most likely this year. Hah! Wrong.
Six months ago the long range models revealed that tropical storms would begin earlier than June 1st. Did the weather service issue any such statement? I don't think so. In May, two tropical events did occur, and the comments from the 2009 Hurricane Report indicated the early storms plus the continuation of the storms through out the entire six month season. Usually the storm period begins in August.
Did you know that individual long range models are analyzed for wind content? The first period of wind from May 31 through June 12 calls for breezy and windy conditions with gale force winds during this period of time. The wind forecast is specific for southern Florida and can be expanded to a larger area when conditions are ripe for stormy weather.
NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center calls for a 50 percent probability of a near-normal season, a 25 percent probability of an above-normal season and a 25 percent probability of a below-normal season. Their current excuse for being extraordinarly bland is that Global weather patterns are imposing a greater uncertainty in the 2009 hurricane season outlook than in recent years. Forecasters say there is a 70 percent chance of having nine to 14 named storms, of which four to seven could become hurricanes, including one to three major hurricanes, a strength of 3, 4 or 5. Using words such as if, or, and the probability of - truly not acceptable forecasts given the equipment, staff and salaries in place. My hurricane report calls for 19 storms and the weeks when they will appear.
How can one long range forecaster possibly..there is that word again...develop a single unchanging hurricane report that has a very high percentage of accuracy and for an entire season? True? Yes. Easy to write? No! It is not a simple task to forecast for a six month period. Because forecasting is locality specific, one forecaster could not be in so many places for such a long period of time.
Commentators and meteorologists on the Weather Channel tv show say that Mother Nature always has surprises in store, but that scientific community doesn't have a close relationship with her.
Long range forecasting is possible through the use of secrets from the ancients and more modern work that is becoming more and more successful.
The next tropical event shows up in this week. There is plenty of rain in Florida, the strong wind velocity is in place and the potential for flooding is called for. To find out what the six months of forecasts calls for, order your report here: http://www.weathersage.com/hurricane_flier.htm
Friday, April 10, 2009, 04:25 AMFlorida and many other coastal states are held hostage by Mother Nature who dangles the threat of mayhem and destruction and loss over the residents and businesses. The 2009 Hurricane Report - Hunting the Hurricanes is now available. The information is original and impressive because the U.S. Weather Service cannot perform this service. Go to http://weathersage.com/hurricane_flier.htm to read more about the upcoming six month hurricane season.
There is little that can be done to stop the storms - or is that a true statement? It is safe to say that modern technology has advanced enough to focus attention on the work of the late Dr. Irving P. Krick. A recent internet search has revealed many articles written about this controversial individual who was able to develop long range weather forecasts that were accurate. Why is his work and name buried until now? Learn more about the man by reading the free e-book on the main website, Weathersage Home. I think you will be amazed and yet left wondering why the weather service is still operating in the dark.
Why doesn’t the government focus their energy on combating the storms with an army of warriors and equipment? Most of the major hurricanes are storms last several days or even up to a week or two and are well-tracked by meteorologists once the storm can be seen. There is enough time to gather the forces to destroy or deter the storm – if – the government would develop them. What does our tax dollar give us in the realm of hurricanes? It is the ability to watch a storm on television ravage an area while nothing is done about it.
Do you remember Hurricane Fay 2008 who liked Florida's landscape so much that she came to be regarded as the visitor who overstayed her welcome? The storm made four landfalls in Florida over a two week period becoming the first storm in recorded history to strike the state (or any state) four concurrent times and of course leaving in her wake a costly scene of damage.
The 3rd Annual Hurricane Report will inform you of the storms that will develop during the six month season. Imagine what could result from a merging of information systems.

Friday, March 27, 2009, 05:47 AM - TechniquesThe Red River in N. Dakota is rising to exceed previous levels. Marc Penfield's chart for the state and for Fargo show the current transits tightly affecting each one. I prefer to start with a chart of the state because if there is a disaster, the state chart would take a hit in a few places such as finances, deaths, and other points in the chart. Many times a chart of a city or town can be more important and can be used as you would a state chart. Ex. the founding of Newport, RI 1639 is the chart I use for RI. The best locational chart is the one that will give you the best predictive capabilities - the angles are affected by transits. If you are keeping a notebook of places, then cast and print the chart and make your notes on the chart to use in the future.
Data from Marc Penfield's book Horoscopes of Cities and States of the USA and Canada available at AFA

The 4th house cusp is Gemini with ruler Mercury conjunct Uranus. Gemini would be a variety of weather and cool to cold and breezy.
the conjunction easily explains the record setting kinds of weather. Uranus is also co ruler of the ascendant. Saturn also co ruler of the ascendant is in Virgo - brings in the Mercury again. The Moon in Pisces in the 1st house is very strong for water issues and the Moon is by degree exactly square the 4th cusp.
If you cast the chart you would find transiting Neptune conjunct the ascendant - this is a very long transit.

The 4th house 9:15 Capricorn ruled by Saturn in Capricorn at 6 Cap. The Moon is 28 Sat, close to the natal Saturn and the midpoint is where transit Pluto is now. Transit Neptune is opposite natal Venus at 24 Leo and Venus is the ruler of the ascendant.
