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.
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.
