Hurricane Dolores Fulfills Long-range Weather Forecast

The next long-range weather forecast that appeared in the June 2015 edition of Dell Horoscope focused on the July 15-17 period. These forecasts were prepared starting in July 2014 and were sent to the publisher in January of 2015. Two forecasts were made. Let's see how they turned out.

The first forecast pinpointed the southern tip of Baja, California as a place ripe for tropical storm or hurricane activity at this time. The reason was that the last alignment between Uranus and Pluto in March of 2015 placed these two planets over that area as shown in the astro-locality map below.

Uranus-Pluto
Between July 15-17 the conjunction of Mercury and Mars in opposition to Pluto would fall on this planetary crossing and activate it bringing the possibility of a tropical system over this area. The AccuWeather map below from their July 16th post on Hurricane Dolores shows the category 4 hurricane affecting western Mexico and the Baja, thus fulfilling the forecast.

16 Dolores

The next area mentioned in the forecast had to do with the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. At this location, the Mercury-Mars-Pluto alignment would trigger the previous lunar eclipse of April 2015. The forecast called for possible tropical activity over this region.

Between July 15th and 17th, two tropical waves passed over the Yucatan according to Mexico's national weather service (Servico Meteorológico National). The first tropical wave brought electrical storms, rain, and winds of up to 20 mph with gusts reaching 30 mph. The second one brought 1 to 2 inches of rain over the Yucatan with 2 to 3 inches of rain over the states directly west of the Yucatan. The next map below for the 17th shows Tropical Wave 17 passing over the forecast area.

July 6-8, 2015 Forecast Results

Here are the results of the latest long-range forecast published in the June 2015 edition of Dell Horoscope. The forecast was based on the Sun-Pluto opposition and its trigger to the lunar eclipse chart of April 4, 2015. The Sun and Moon were rising and setting at the time of the eclipse near the Yucatan Peninsula and the Gulf of Mexico as can be seen in the following map.

Lunar Eclipse
When the Sun opposed Pluto on July 6th, it squared the lunar eclipse degree as they passed through the Yucatan and the Gulf as seen in the next map.


Sun 180 Pluto

Based on this, and other planetary alignments, the forecast pointed out that "around this time there is potential for severe weather to develop over this area, which may include possible tropical storm formation."

Results

July 5th - The National Weather Service of Mexico reported that Tropical Wave No. 13 was situated over the Yucatan Peninsula.

July 7th - The U.S. National Weather Service reported, "A trough will develop over the Yucatan Peninsula each evening...shift westward into the SW Gulf waters each night...and dissipate over the SW Gulf each morning."

July 9th - According to the National Weather Service the developing trough each evening over the Yucatan would provide moderate convection and "enhance wind and seas across the SW Gulf during the overnight hours."

July 10th - The NWS reports a tropical wave over the Yucatan Peninsula.

The NWS map below shows the situation over the Yucatan late on the 9th.

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.
