Here are the results of the last of the long-range weather forecasts that appeared in the Feb/Mar 2012 edition of The Mountain Astrologer magazine. The forecasts were prepared in July of 2011.

March 17-19, 2012
Mercury, now retrograde, will make one more swipe at Uranus by conjunction. A retrograde Mercury increases wind speeds and with Uranus those winds are cold. Winter precipitation usually is part of the deal. The eastern third of the country is affected as is the Plains and the Pacific Northwest. Central Europe should see a windy low pressure area and cold, windy conditions should affect Russia down through central China.
