Hurricane Andres heads for Baja California

The National Weather Service shows Hurricane Andres heading for the southern portion of the Baja California peninsula by Thursday the 25th.

From an astrological view point, why would Andres be drawn toward this area?

The above astro-locality map is for the New Moon of of June 22nd. Notice that the Sun and Moon were overhead there. In other words, it was high noon over the Baja at the time of the New Moon. This New Moon also was also in exact opposition to Pluto. I've drawn a box around the positions of the Sun, Moon, and Pluto.

Looking at the New Moon from the standard astrological chart, one can see the Sun and Moon conjoining on the Midheaven while they oppose Pluto on the 4th house cusp. All three heavenly bodies square the Ascendant degree.

Solar Eclipse Action October and November 2009

Here are more weather patterns signified by the transits of outer planets to sensitive recent solar eclipse degrees.

Solar Eclipse of February 6, 2008
Oct 11-14, 2009: Jupiter lingers in conjunction to the solar eclipse degree for all of October and the last third of September. One particular time that may be important is when Jupiter turns direct on this degree. Jupiter will be at its strongest over 52 west and 15 north where a tropical system may originate.

Solar Eclipse of March 18, 2007
October 12-15, 2009:
The Venus-Saturn conjunction on the 13th will oppose the solar eclipse degree off the US West Coast at 129 west. Venus and Saturn are parallel on the 12th. The eclipse was square Pluto. This may bring a strong storm system into the US west coast and/or tropical activity along 128 west in the tropical regions.

Solar Eclipse of July 21, 2009
October 14-17, 2009:
Mars conjoins the eclipse degree over the Rockies, which will most likely result in storm formation over the area.

Solar Eclipse of July 21, 2009
October 21-24, 2009:
The transit Sun will make it’s first square to the eclipse degree. The Rockies once again should see a front triggering storms or low pressure area.

Solar Eclipse of Sept 22, 2006
Oct 22-25, 2009:
Saturn conjoins the solar eclipse along 88 west longitude, which is roughly the Mississippi Valley area. Since the Gulf of Mexico, and Central America are also affected, this should be a time of strong storms and possible hurricane activity there.

Solar Eclipse of Jan 26, 2009
October 29-Nov 2, 2009:
The Sun, Mars, and Mercury form a series of triggers to the solar eclipse degree which ran through the Intermountain West along 115 west longitude. First the Sun-Mars square triggers the eclipse, then Mercury squares it as it squares transit Mars. This will affect the Intermountain West with a storm system, but tropical activity could take place about 540 miles southwest of Cabo San Lucas around 115 west/17 north.

Solar Eclipse of February 6, 2008
October 30-November 2, 2009:
Although Jupiter has been on this degree all month, it is now exact. The area to watch for possible tropical storm formation is in the western Atlantic around 52 west and 15 north.

Solar Eclipse of Aug 1, 2008
Nov 5-7, 2009:
Mars conjoins the solar eclipse degree over the Northeast U.S. Expect storms through the area. This may also affect the Windward Islands, which may see some tropical activity.

Get Organized!

There may be nothing wrong with you,
The way you live, the work you do,
But I can very plainly see
Exactly what is wrong with me.
It isn't that I'm indolent
Or dodging duty by intent;
I work as hard as anyone,
And yet I get so little done,
The morning goes, the noon is here,
Before I know, the night is near,
And all around me, I regret,
Are things I haven't finished yet.
If I could just get organised!
I oftentimes have realised
Not all that matters is the man:
The man must also have a plan!

Solar Eclipse and Texas Heat

The recent Weather Alternative long-range forecast for June 12-15 called for severe storms over the Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware area. This was based on Mars' triggering of the August 1, 2008 solar eclipse degree.

The Accuweather map at left for June 12th shows a low pressure system hitting the forecast area. Accuweather meteorologists stated that on the 11th "Areas of drenching rain and thunderstorms will plague the Northeast into tonight. Spotty afternoon and evening thunderstorms may follow both days of the weekend."
"A storm tracking from the Midwest to northern New England into tonight will deliver drenching rain and locally strong thunderstorms. The steadiest and heaviest rain will focus from northwestern Pennsylvania, north and west to the eastern Great Lakes and interior New England."

Drenching rain then continued into New England on the 12th.

Texas has been experiencing some very high temperatures over the last few days--just about the time that Mars triggered the aforementioned solar eclipse. Yuzuru, a Weather Alternative reader was wondering if maybe Mars and the solar eclipse were responsible for the heat in Texas.

I think the two places are too far removed to say that the Texas heat is also a reaction to the solar eclipse that fell over the Northeast U.S. I'm inclined to believe that the New Moon chart of May 24th, which placed the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on the Midheaven through Dallas and eastern Texas is probably responsible for the heat wave there. Both Jupiter and Neptune are equated with rising temperatures and at the time the heat wave started transit Mars formed contraparallels with both Jupiter and Neptune.

Tropical Update

Between June 8th and 10th, Mars triggered the Solar Eclipse of January 26, 2009. The Weather Alternative mentioned that this indicated storm potential, possibly tropical in nature, that would affect the southern coast of Mexico centering around 95 west longitude and 13 north latitude.

The Mexican Weather Service issued a special advisory for the southern coast during this period. Mexican meteorologists warned the potential for locally strong to intense rains and electrical storms. (See Spanish quote below) The areas marked with red boxes show the areas in question.

Solar Eclipse Action for August and September 2009

Here are some more long-range weather forecasts based on recent solar eclipses. Since we're in hurricane season, some of the resulting weather patterns may indicate tropical systems.

This astrometeorological technique notes the time when the outer planets make hard aspects to previous solar eclipse degrees. Hard aspects are conjunctions, squares, and oppositions. There is usually an atmospheric reaction that accompanies these aspects over the areas where the Sun and Moon were angular at the time of eclipse.

August 6-9, 2009
Mars squares the degree of the September 11, 2007 solar eclipse on the August 7th. The Sun and Moon were rising through the Rockies and Mexico. A particularly vulnerable spot is the area about 170 miles south of Guadalajara, Mexico, (see the circled area in the above map) which may respond with the formation some sort of tropical system. The U.S. Rockies may also experience a low pressure system or front triggering storms at this time.

August 22-24, 2009
Mars and Mercury will square the solar eclipse of March 18, 2007. The Sun and Moon were setting off the U.S. West Coast and square Pluto at the time of eclipse. This could indicate the development of a tropical system in the intertropical convergence zone at this time. I’m referring roughly here to the area around 128 west longitude and between 10 to 20 degrees north latitude.

August 23-26, 2009

Mars and Mercury will also conjoin the September 22, 2006 solar eclipse degree as they square each other. The 88th degree of west longitude is where these will play out. This highlights the area from Chicago down through Mobile. The southern portion, from Mobile into the Gulf and through the Yucatan into Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador are in a hurricane strike zone. In other words the continental U.S. may experience strong storms and windy conditions, but the Gulf on into Central America could very well see the formation of a tropical system. The Solar Ingress chart also highlights this very same area adding a confirmation of the possibility. See the large circled area in the above map.

Sept 7-10, 2009

Mars will trigger the solar eclipse of March 29, 2006. The Sun and Moon ascended through Nova Scotia and transit Mars will cut through the Windward Islands at this time. Severe weather, which may be tropical in nature, may afflict these areas now.

Sept 23-26, 2009

Mercury will oppose Uranus on the 23rd. During hurricane season these two are known to coincide with tropical storm and/or hurricane development. Jupiter will also get into the act by triggering the solar eclipse of February 6, 2008. The area between 52 and 60 west longitude and around 17 north latitude, in other words about 450 miles east of the Windward Islands is an area where tropical storm or hurricane development is likely.
