Tropical Cyclone Hadi

In December 2013, I was commissioned to prepare forecasts for eastern Australia covering the month of March 2014. I had warned the interested party that during the time between March 9-12 there were a number of indications of severe weather off the Queensland peninsula at this time. This was due to the Mercury square Saturn aspect of March 11th. But an interesting development was taking place because this aspect was falling exactly on the previous Sun square Saturn aspect that took place on February 11th exactly one month earlier. Here's the astro-locality map that tipped me off as to the time and location in March.



Topical Cyclone Hadi appeared over this area on the 10th and the 11th as shown in the weather map provided by the Australia Bureau of Meteorology. Another tropical cyclone was hitting the Queensland peninsula at the same time but that's another story.

South America, China, and Australia Forecast Results

In mid-December of last year, I posted some long-range weather forecasts for Christmas and New Year's in South America and China. I included the astro-locality map below to show why I felt that the area around Bolivia and Argentina might be in for some severe weather between Dec 29, 2013 and Jan 3, 2014. I also included Ecuador and Peru. The map shows that one of the key charts used in this type of weather forecasting showed a build up of planets over the region. I foresaw a stormy period or some unusual weather.


I found that Argentina was in the grips of an intense heat wave going into this period. The following Argentine weather map showed the areas affected by the heat wave between Dec 22nd and 31st.



On the 31st severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for the north and northwestern areas of the country citing the potential for strong to severe storms generating wind gusts, hail, lightning, and periods of intense rain. On January 2nd, another warning was issued for this same area due to an advancing cold front triggering strong to severe thunderstorms.

I found mention of a low pressure area over southern Bolivia on January 1st, and severe thunderstorm warnings for most of Peru on January 2nd as shown in the map below.



The website that I used to track weather predictions I had published a few years ago for China had changed and I was unable to verify the weather there.

In another December post, I had issued a forecast for a severe weather pattern or tropical cyclone to hit the west coast of Australia between Jan 7-10, 2014. At the most, a couple of low pressure areas affect the area at this time as the map below for Jan 7th shows. By the 9th, there were Strong Wind Warnings for the west coast area of Ningaloo, Gascoyne, and Geraldton.

Christmas and New Year's Day Forecast Results

These long-range weather forecasts were issued at the end of December, 2013. The Christmas Day forecast called for an energetic storm system or strong cold front to bring boisterous winds to the Northeast U.S. and New England areas.

Windy conditions did set in on Christmas Eve. The Accuweather map below shows the forecast area being affected by brisk winds and snow showers.



The main activity occurred on the 26th, a day later, when a low pressure area developed off the New England coast brining heavy and steady snow to the region. Three to six inches of snow was expected. Snow also accumulated in the Northeast causing numerous car accidents in eastern Pennsylvania. This storm was not as boisterous as expected. The Accuweather map below for the 26th shows the prevailing conditions.



The next forecast called for a low pressure system to travel from Virginia to the Canadian Maritimes and to affect the Northeast and New England with strong winds, precipitation, and hazardous weather between December 29th and January 2nd.

On the 29th, Accuweather reported that a snowstorm moving up from the south bringing drenching rain would then hit colder air and deposit heavy snow in the Northeast. The storm would then drop from 6 to 12 inches of snow over portions of New Hampshire, Maine, and New Brunswick. The combination of snow and wind brought risk of downed trees and power outages. The Accuweather map below shows the extent of the snowfall.




Then on January 2nd, Accuweather reported Blizzard to Reach From NYC to Boston Thursday Night. A major snowstorm spanned the Midwest, Appalachian Mountains, and New England affecting holiday travelers, school students, and businesses. Some areas of New England received 12 to 18 inches of snow. The storm kicked up winds creating blizzard conditions as shown in the map below. All in all, this was an accurate forecast.

The New Testament and Women
A quote from feminist theologian Rosemary Reuther

"It is generally assumed that Paul is the author of a Christianity of female subordination. But more recent studies have shown that the historical Paul in fact continued most of the assumptions and practices of early charismatic, inclusive Christianity. Indeed, most of the New Testament evidence that women functioned as local leaders, as well as traveling evangelists, is to be found in the Pauline letters. Paul addresses almost an equal number of women along with men (sixteen women and eighteen men) in his greetings to Church leaders in Romans 16. He mentions two women, Euodia and Syntche, as having preached the gospel "with Barnabas and me" in Philippians 4:2-3. He addresses a woman name Junia by the title of "apostle," and constantly refers to the husband and wife team, Priscilla and Aquila, as "Church leaders," usually naming Priscilla first. He also speaks of the prominent woman Phoebe by the title of both "deacon" and "prostasis" or leader, of her community.
Paul received from the early Church both a practice of thus including women in the ministries of catechesis, prophecy, local Church leadership, and traveling evangelism (the role Paul calls that of "apostle"), and also a baptismal theology of male-female equivalence in Christ as reflected in the Galatians 3:28 reference. This formula was not original with Paul; he cites it from early Christian tradition. The Galatians baptismal text expresses the early Christian vision of the new humanity in Christ. It was consciously moulded to contrast with the traditions of rabbinic piety, adapted from Hellenistic philosophy, in which the Jewish male thanks God for having been born male and not female, free and not slave, and Jew rather than Gentile. By declaring that in Christ these divisions had been overcome and all these groups made "one," the early Christian stated the essence of his or her new identity as one where the equivalence of all humans in the image of God had been restored."

January 1, 2014 Forecast: South America and China

Lately, I've been discussing certain important lunar cycles that affect weather patterns. I showed how Typhoon Haiyan was directly related to the Moon's closest monthly approach to Earth (perigee) and its maximum southern declination. (see post here)

I also ventured some forecasts based on the Moon's repeat performance of the same thing in December. Those forecasts pinpointed India and the Rocky Mountains of the United States as areas for potentially severe weather. The result was Cyclone Madi that affected India and a powerful winter storm that hit the Rockies. (see post here)

Forecast - December 29, 2013 - January 3, 2014

This setup will happen yet again on January 1, 2014 when the Moon will be at perigee and maximum south declination at the time of the New Moon. This type of New Moon has earned the nickname SuperMoon. At this time the Moon will also make a series of weather-disrupting aspects to Uranus, Sun, Pluto, Mars, and Mercury. Let's pinpoint where this will manifest. The astro-locality map, based on the winter solstice chart, below shows a strong concentration over Bolivia and Argentina in South America. Other charts (not shown) also include Ecuador and Peru. This most likely indicates a stormy period or unusual weather. For some of these South American countries it's their rainy season.
South America

The next area to watch is China. The same planetary influences affect eastern portions of the country most likely indicating a clashing of colder Siberian air with a warmer, moist air mass from the south. The result should be a strong winter low pressure area or front that cuts through the region.

December 4, 2013 Forecast Results

In a recent post entitled An Observation on Typhoon Haiyan (Nov. 20), I formulated some forecasts for the period around Dec. 4, 2013. These forecasts were based on the two overlapping lunar cycles of perigee and maximum declination. On Dec. 4th, the Moon was also making important aspects to Uranus and Pluto. I had seen that this same setup in November had affected the Philippines coinciding with Typhoon Haiyan's arrival over the islands.

The first country that I thought would be affected by this setup was India, which I suspected would be hit by a cold front.

India

Around Dec. 4th, however, the southeastern portion of India was affected by a well-marked low pressure area that became Cyclone Madi. This was interesting since, as mentioned above, the lunar configurations of the previous month had resulted in Typhoon Haiyan. Here's the warning map issued on December 7th.

07 Cyclone Madi

The next area of concern was the Rocky Mountain area of the United States. As shown in the astro-locality map below, the Moon, Uranus, and Pluto afflicted the area.
USA

A winter storm dubbed "Cleon" by the Weather Channel dumped 20 to 30 inches of snow in some areas of the Rockies. Arctic air then plunged south across the region. The Weather Channel map below is for the evening of Dec. 3rd.

Dec 03

The last area centered in the western Atlantic just off the coast of Surinam.

South America

No major system or low pressure was reported there at this time. From the water vapor imagery map of Dec. 5th below, there may have been some minor convection at most.

Severe Weather Alert: Western Australia Jan 7-10, 2014

stock-footage-severe-weather-alert-broadcast-graphics-title

The potential for a severe weather pattern, possibly a tropical cyclone, to hit the west coast of Australia between January 7-10, 2014 is indicated in long-range forecast models.  The models are based on the method utilized by Johannes Kepler, the 17th Century astronomer and discoverer of the planetary laws of motion. Kepler's observations led him to conclude that alignments among the planets of our solar system correlated with weather events on Earth.

Based on these studies, the alignment of the planets Mercury and Venus on January 8, 2014 and that of Mars and Jupiter on January 9 indicate a severe weather pattern will develop over the west coast of Western Australia. Traditionally, Venus has been observed to impregnate the atmosphere with moisture, thus increasing temperatures and humidity. When aligned with Mercury, warm winds blow resulting in the formation of low pressure systems. The Mars-Jupiter combination results in excessive heat that can result in the sudden formation of storm systems.

Taken together, an anomalous weather pattern will develop over the west coast of Western Australia at this time and push toward the east. Increasing temperatures and humidity will likely result in a low pressure system that affects the area. Since Australia is in its cyclone season, one possible scenario is that a tropical cyclone affects the forecast area. If not an actual cyclone, severe storms are likely. Stay tuned to your local weather providers at this time for more details.

New Year's Day Weather 2014

new-years-day-2013-5


A potent winter storm gearing up around the 29th of December will afflict the Northeast U.S., New England, and Nova Scotia through January 2nd of the New Year. Long-range forecast models provide strong indications of a low pressure system to form or at least pass near the Virginia coast and buffet the northeastern sector of the country with strong winds, precipitation, and hazardous weather conditions as it treks toward the Canadian Maritimes.

This long-range forecast is based on the relationship observed between planetary phenomena and atmospheric changes as expounded upon by Johannes Kepler, the discoverer of the planetary laws of motion. A fully documented record of his work from 1602 to 1629 appears in Kepler’s “Mysterium Cosmographicum.”

Planetary alignments involving the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Uranus, and Pluto culminate at this time. The above forecast is based on observations of previous weather patterns that coincided with these same alignments. In addition, the New Moon of January 1st will be a perigee-syzygy, commonly referred to as a SuperMoon. This describes a New or Full Moon that takes place when the Moon is at its closest approach to Earth. This particular SuperMoon has the extra influence of the Moon also being at its southernmost declination indicating storms of a more intense nature.
