June 21, 2015 Forecast Results

In my June 2015 article in Dell Horoscope, I mentioned that there was a chance that a low pressure system could manifest over the Louisiana area around June 21st due to the placements of Mercury and Neptune in the key summer season chart. Here's a visual representation of how those two planets affect the area.

June 21
This crossing that we see over Louisiana has the potential to be activated later on in the season, and different forecasts will come up over the next months that will focus on this. But in the article, I thought that around June 21st we might see some low pressure activity since Mercury would square Neptune on the 23rd. In astro-meteorology, squares are disruptive influences on weather patterns. In the next map below, we see their positions on the 23rd, when they perfect their square. The crossing moves southward into the Gulf of Mexico.

June 25
You'll notice I put a little circle to the left of the crossing. That's because on the 25th a tropical wave was moving through that corner of the Gulf and positioned at 94 west longitude and 24 north latitude where the circle is. Prior to this, the tropical wave was over the Yucatan on the 24th.

June 9-12, 2015 Forecast Results

The first forecast of my article Celestial Storm Warnings that appears in the June 2015 edition of Dell Horoscope is for the period between June 9-12. The forecast was based on the astro-locality map below where we see two planetary lines (those of Mercury and Neptune) crossing south of New England and east of Virginia around 70 west longitude and 36 north latitude.

  June Full Moon
Although the article deals with hurricane forecasts, I mentioned it might be too early on in the season at this particular location for a tropical system to form. Therefore, I said there might be a non-tropical low pressure area that forms there or a front.

The National Weather Service forecast map for June 8th shows a stationary front forming over 70 west longitude and about 33 north latitude, as shown in the next map.

08 Atlantic

Then on the 9th, the NWS map shows a low pressure area forming around 35 north latitude but a bit farther east at around 64 west longitude. It's shown on the next map and labeled with an "L" and the number 576.

09 Atlantic

It's interesting to note that the planetary lines in the astro-locality map extend northward through New England. On the 9th, AccuWeather.com posted the following map showing severe thunderstorms with hail and damaging winds for the New England area.

09 Northeast

Update on India Heat Wave and Monsoon

The May 30th post, India Heat Wave, discussed one of the planetary influences at work over the country that, from an astro-meteorological standpoint, indicated the heat wave. I also ventured to say that the Full Moon chart of June 2nd would set up a different planetary influence that would be an indication of a pattern change to wetter conditions. This was due to Venus occupying the eastern coast of India. In astro-meteorology, Venus in the sign Cancer, is indicative of increasing moisture and showers. The map below shows the position of Venus at the time of the Full Moon.

India2
Following are a few news reports of monsoon activity over the Indian subcontinent in recent days confirming an influx of moisture over the regions that Venus occupied at the Full Moon. I've included a political map of India in order to recognize more easily the states affected by the monsoon rains.

09 India politica

On June 5th, the India Meteorological Department stated that "Monsoon Hits Kerala." From the political map, we see that Kerala is located on the southwestern tip of the subcontinent. The astro-locality map shows the Venus line passing over that area. In the same post, the IMD stated that parts of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh could expect the advance of the monsoon in the next 48 hours. These areas fall under the Venus line in the astro-locality map.

The news story on June 6th read "Rains lash Andhra, Telangana; conditions conducive for monsoon." We'll note that Telangana is also under the Venus line. The article declared that these pre-monsoon showers brought down temperatures to the delight of the inhabitants of these areas.

Today's news report for June 9th indicated that a cyclonic circulation is now present over the coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh bringing good rainfall to the area. The report also mentions that the monsoon will remain active over Northeast India, which we can see from the astro-locality map, is under the influence of the Venus line.

India Heat Wave

India has been suffering a heat wave since around May 21st that has claimed, up until now, about 1,700 lives. Here are a couple of observations on the astro-meteorological causes of the heat wave.

India Heat Deaths

On May 18th, the New Moon took place at 26 degrees Taurus. This placed the planet Uranus over 78 east longitude through central India as seen in the astro-locality map below. In astro-meteorology Uranus induces the highest barometric pressure. At this time, Uranus is transiting the sign Aries. Although Uranus is generally known to decrease temperatures, Aries is equated with hot and dry temperatures and conditions. So combining the high pressure of Uranus with Aries characteristics, we have the makings of a heat wave.

India1
The next lunar phase is the Full Moon of June 2nd. This chart, as seen below, will place the planet Venus along the eastern coast of India. Venus in astro-meteorology is indicative of downfall in excess of the normal period. Venus is transiting through the sign Cancer which is a wet sign. This would be an indication that the weather pattern changes to usher in moisture over those portions of India and begin to combat the reigning heat wave. Let's hope so.

Hurricane Season 2015 Long-range Weather Predictions

You can find my latest hurricane predictions for the 2015 season in the June edition of Dell Horoscope. I cover what I feel are important planetary alignments that could result in tropical storm or hurricane formation between June and November of this year. Check it out. I'll be posting the results here on the Weather Alternative blog.

March 2015 Forecast Results

Here are the results of The Weather Alternative forecasts for March 2015. The first forecast period for March 11-14 zeroed in on the U.S. East Coast. I expected similar weather to that of November 17, 2014 when a strong winter storm brought a low pressure area and frigid winds to the Northeast and New England as well as low pressure systems from the Carolinas northward.

Here are some of the weather headlines from that period. On the 13th, AccuWeather reported, "Northeast Storm to Raise Flooding Risk, Bring Wintry Travel." On the 14th, the National Weather Service warned, "Heavy Snow to Impact Northern New England." 

The flooding mentioned by AccuWeather was to affect the central Appalachians to the mid-Atlantic and create slippery travel and power outages in New England. The heavy snow to impact northern New England was due to a redeveloping low over the Gulf of Maine. 

The AccuWeather map below shows the system on the 14th with even some flooding for Long Island and southern New England. It was this storm that added two more inches of snow to the Boston total for the season making it snowiest season on record with a total of 108.6 inches. 




The next forecast was for the March 16-19 period. I thought windy conditions would affect California and stormy weather would hit the Pacific Northwest.

The National Weather Service reported on the 16th that unsettled weather would affect the Pacific Northwest. Then for the 18th they reported that a closed upper-level low will develop over Southern California and Northwestern Mexico a chance of thunderstorms resulting in brief heavy rains and small hail. A similar setup was reported for central California but no weather systems of major importance.

March 2015 Weather Forecasts

There are some planetary alignments in March that have the potential to result in some interesting weather patterns. I'd like to comment on two periods in March. One affects the East Coast U.S. and the other the West Coast.

March 11-14, 2015

This period features the conjunction of Mars and Uranus, and the square of Mars and Pluto. These aspects by Mars serve to trigger the Uranus-Pluto square beforehand which is exact on the 16th. What makes this even more important is that the conjunction takes place on the degree of the previous lunar eclipse of October 8, 2014. Here is the astro-locality map for that eclipse.



Notice the lines that fall over the New England area. This is where the Sun and Moon were rising and setting at the time of the eclipse. It is this point that will be triggered by the Mars-Uranus-Pluto combination.

The last time Mars activated this eclipse degree was on November 15, 2014. By the 17th of November, Winter Storm Bozeman (as nicknamed by the Weather Channel) was over New England. The AccuWeather map below shows the weather that affected the area.



The following Weather Channel map presents another view of the November 17th storm. We see multiple low pressure system running along the East Coast much like the lines in our astro-locality map has many planetary lines affecting the East Coast from the Carolinas northward.



We may expect similar weather between March 11th and 14th this year. The Mars-Uranus combination usually brings energetic weather systems and gusty winds. Mars-Pluto is also very disruptive to weather conditions. So we may see a strong front or low pressure system(s) that affects the Carolinas northward through New England with windy and stormy conditions.

March 16-19, 2015

Saturn will make its retrograde station on the 14th and then receive a square from Mercury on the 16th. The astro-locality map for the winter season places Saturn over California as can be seen by the black line in the map below.



The other yellow line represents the position of Jupiter, which also plays an important role in relation to the developing weather pattern there. This is because Jupiter will oppose the planetary position held by Mars at the beginning of the winter season.

So, what kind of weather can we expect? Well, last year Saturn was also placed over the West Coast in the seasonal winter map. At the time Saturn made its retrograde station last year on March 2nd, the days following showed energetic storm systems that entered the Pacific Northwest even affecting northern and central California at times.

When Mercury squared Saturn last year, there were strong and gusty winds in Nevada, New Mexico and southern California but not much moisture. As for the Mars-Jupiter combination, it is a storm-breeding aspect. Taken together we can probably count on a wind event for the California area with perhaps stormy conditions potentially affecting the Pacific Northwest.
