Summer 2008: The Eastern United States

The planetary positions at the time of the Vernal Equinox are some of the main factors to be considered in assessing summer weather conditions over a given area. The following long-range forecasts are based solely on planetary movement as seen through this chart. In this installment, we look at weather conditions and possible hurricane landfalls over the Eastern United States. Hopefully, in the future, more information will be added by consulting with other important charts such as solar and lunar eclipses, new and full moon charts, etc.



July 1-3

Venus opposes transit Jupiter on the 2nd. The Moon conjoins and opposes them as well. These square the Midheaven through New England bringing a warm and moist air mass that will result in precipitation.

July 5-8
Mercury descends along the entire East Coast and squares transit Uranus on the 5th. Venus trines Uranus on the 6th, and the Moon conjoins Uranus on the 8th.
A cold air mass descends over the Plains out of Canada setting off storms. A cold front along the East Coast brings storms from Florida to New England.





July 9-11
The Sun's opposition to Jupiter and Mercury's opposition to Pluto at the time of the First Quarter Moon show the potential for a low pressure system or front to develop off the U.S. East Coast around the latitude of North Carolina and bring severe weather to the New England area.



July 18-20
Mercury’s opposition Jupiter on the 19th and its contra parallel to Jupiter on the 21st will bring stormy conditions throughout the Northeast U.S.






Aug 23-25
Mars is now transiting across the East Central area at 86 west longitude. On the 26th, Mercury is contra parallel Mars. Heat increases and may result in storms and windy conditions.




Aug 27-29
Mercury and Venus square Pluto on the 27th and 29th respectively. Venus is also contra parallel Mars, which now occupies the Midheaven at 83 west longitude on the 28th. Although Pluto has been busted down from its status as a planet, it still exerts its full power on the weather. In the Ingress chart, Pluto runs along the East Coast, which should feel the strength of its storm-producing capabilities, while Mercury and Venus affect the East Central area with thunderstorms.



Aug 30-Sept 2
At this time Mercury parallels Mars and Uranus. Stormy weather and damaging winds will result as air masses clash over the East Central U.S.



Sept 6-9
This is a very active period for the East Coast. Strong storms and high wind velocities are indicated for the mid-Atlantic area as Mercury, Venus, and Mars transit the area. Mars will parallel Uranus--a high wind breeder, and square Jupiter. Mercury also squares Jupiter and conjoins Mars--another wind maker. Lastly, Venus squares Jupiter and parallels Uranus. Tropical storm or hurricane landfall is possible over the Carolinas. If not a tropical system, powerful storms lash the mid-Atlantic and push eastward.


Sept 10-14
Venus conjoins Mars on the 11th increasing temperatures that may lead to storms. By the 14th, Mercury conjoins Venus, another aspect that increases temperatures and may trigger thunderstorms.


Sept 14-18
The conjunction of Mercury and Venus over the New England area keep the astro-meteorological window open for tropical storm/hurricane activity to affect the region or for severe thunderstorms to afflict the area.

How Long-Range Forecasts Are Made

Al Capone

Capone was allowed to serve out the rest of his sentence in the newly-opened Federal Correctional Institution at Terminal Island, Los Angeles, partially paralysed. Here one Sunday at the Sunday service, the prisoners were asked by the preacher, "Do any of you feel the need of prayer?" Amongst the first to raise his hand was Capone. To the next question, "Are any of you here feeling the need of a Saviour? Is so, stand up before your fellows and confess the fact." Capone stood up. -- John Kobler
