England's Worst Snow In Years

Today Accuweather reports that heavy snow is falling across England. Eight inches fell in short order on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel. Widespread snowfall of 3-5 inches occurred across southern England. Snow spread into Ireland, northern England and Scotland late Monday.

The astrological scenario as portrayed in the Solar Ingress shows the Sun conjunct Pluto on the Midheaven through England, and the Saturn-Uranus opposition rising and setting over western portions of England.

In astrometeorology, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto are cold planets. Saturn and Uranus are just a few days away from an exact opposition and the Sun-Pluto conjunction is being squared by transit Venus today. The squares and oppositions are foul-weather makers and are truly living up to their reputation.

John Updike

Raised in the Protestant community of Shillington, Pa., where the Lord's Prayer was recited daily at school, Updike was a lifelong churchgoer influenced by his faith, but not immune to doubts.

"I remember the times when I was wrestling with these issues that I would feel crushed. I was crushed by the purely materialistic, atheistic account of the universe," Updike told The Associated Press during a 2006 interview.

"I am very prone to accept all that the scientists tell us, the truth of it, the authority of the efforts of all the men and woman spent trying to understand more about atoms and molecules. But I can't quite make the leap of unfaith, as it were, and say, `This is it. Carpe diem (seize the day), and tough luck.'"
