Tropical Storm Gabrielle and the Mercury Ingress

Today Tropical Storm Gabrielle with winds near 50 mph has made landfall over the outer banks of North Carolina. The Accuweather map at right shows Gabrielle's track.

Astrometeorologists frequently use the planetary positions at the times of solar and planetary ingresses into the signs of the zodiac as a way of ascertaining the place, time, and quality of weather patterns.

The astro-locality map at left shows the recent ingress of Mercury into the sign Libra on September 5th. The white line is Mercury's position and the blue line next to it is the Moon's position. These two were in very close square to each other at the time of ingress.

Tropical Storm Gabrielle has "followed" this line. It achieved tropical storm status close to it and is being drawn northward along it as it hits North Carolina.
