The Astrology of Man-Yi

Typhoon Man-Yi lashed southern Japan with high winds and heavy rain on Saturday, killing a boy, injuring dozens and forcing thousands of people to evacuate homes.

Man-yi struck the southernmost main island of Kyushu after storming through the islands of Okinawa on Friday, moving northeast at 35 km per hour (22 mph), the Meteorological Agency said. (Reuters)

On July 9th Mercury turned direct after having been retrograde for about 3 weeks. The "stations" of the planets i.e. when they start retrograde or direct movement are important in astrometeorology. Mercury has long been equated with cold fronts and increased wind velocities.

As explained in another post, the planetary positions at key moments afford the long-range forecaster an indication as to where certain weather patterns will develop.

The astro map at the left shows Mercury's position exactly overhead at 131 East Longitude at the moment it started its direct motion. When this is compared with Typhoon Man-Yi's track as seen in the tracking map above, it can be seen how the typhoon pretty much hugged the Mercury line between the time it developed on the 8th and made landfall on the 14th.
