Review of July 27-29, 2009 Forecast

I highlighted the need to watch the Gulf Coast area around eastern Texas and Louisiana during the July 27-29 period. The forecast posted at the end of May was based on planetary crossings that appeared in the New Moon chart of July 21st (actually a solar eclipse).

I was concerned that the build up of planetary energies there involving Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune might bring severe weather, although I was not sure how severe due to a fair weather influence of Venus at the same time.

It looks like (from the above Accuweather map for July 28th) that Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune were a bit too much for little ol' Venus. Nine inches of rain were reported on the morning of the 28th in the Ark-La-Tex region. Soaking rain and disruptive downpours also afflicted the area on the 27th as well.

Notice the circled region around the Gulf Coast area as shown in this astro-locality map used by astrometeorologists in formulating long-range weather forecasts. It coincides beautifully with the affected area in the above conventional weather graphic.

The Game of Life

The name of the game, this whole game of life, is choices, constant choices! God sets choices before us all the time and then lets us make our own decisions and operate within certain bounds.

"Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair... these are the long, long years that bow the head and turn the growing spirit back to dust.
"Whatever your years, there is in every being's heart the love of wonder, the undaunted challenge of events, the unfailing, childlike appetite for 'what next,' and the joy and the game of life.
"You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair."
--Douglas MacArthur

Get rid of the notion that children who do things early are way ahead of the game of life. Teaching your children to read at age two, & putting them through practice drills as pretoddlers (if not done correctly), could intensify their anxiety levels.
Hurrying children into advanced activities can represent an adult's need to have a precocious child rather than the best interest of the child. Check your motives! --
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

I note that even though rain fell in the arklatex, no rain fell in the extreme drought area of texas.
Why did the rain fall more north of the area designated?

The extreme drought area of Texas is the southern portion of the State. I'll be posting some information in a couple of days regarding when might be the time southern Texas gets some rain.

The planetary crossings that brought the rain to the Ark-La-Tex region were concentrated more over eastern Texas and Louisiana. Some times additional information can be gleaned from other charts. Each one adds a piece to the puzzle. In this case I didn't have time to consult all the necessary charts. Perhaps those other charts would give some insight into why the rain also fell more to the north.
