March 2016 Long-range Weather Forecasts

The alignments between the planets Jupiter and Saturn in astro-meteorology are noted for their tendency to increase downfall and to intensify and expand storms. In March of this year, Jupiter and Saturn will be in quadrature, exact on the 23rd.

In order to better understand what type of weather patterns we may expect, let's look back at the previous Jupiter-Saturn quadrature that occurred on August 2nd of last year. I had published a forecast in the June 2015 edition of Dell Horoscope entitled Celestial Storm Warnings! - Predicting the 2015 Hurricane Season. 

The forecasts for August 3-7, 2015 were based on the Jupiter-Saturn alignment. The first forecast was for the states of Jalisco, Colima, and Michoacan in western Mexico. During the forecast period, those areas received 1 to 2 inches of rain.

The other area mentioned in the forecast was the U.S. Deep South centering over Alabama. A low pressure area developed over coastal Georgia on the 3rd. By the 6th, AccuWeather reported "Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, as well as Atlanta, Georgia, are expected to see strong thunderstorms through the evening as torrential downpours and gusty winds blow across the area."

By referring to some key charts used in astro-meteorology, we can get an idea of the areas where the weather patterns induced by the Jupiter-Saturn alignment will take place.

As the planets draw closer to their exact aspect, we should begin to see manifestations of stormy weather patterns triggered by low pressure areas or strong fronts. The first period that seems of interest is that of March 8-10.

March 8-10, 2016

The key chart for the winter season places these planets over the 87th degree of west longitude. This runs from the western Great Lakes down through Alabama as can be seen in the locality chart below.

March 8 2016

At this time, the Moon will activate the upcoming quadrature between Jupiter and Saturn. In addition, the Moon will be at perigee which is its closest approach to Earth. This usually serves to intensify weather patterns. I'm expecting to see strong storms bringing wind and rain traverse this part of the country as they head eastward.

March 14-16, 2016

Mercury will now enter the picture and activate the nearly complete Jupiter-Saturn alignment now. This carries the potential for storms over the same area mentioned above, however, these storms may focus further southward over the Deep South.

March 23-26, 2016

The next key chart is for the Jupiter-Saturn alignment itself that takes place on the 23rd. You can see that the areas it affects encompass the 80th degree of west longitude which runs from the eastern Great Lakes through South Carolina. The other extent of its influence takes in New England as shown in the map below.

This period will also feature strong storms with potential to bring torrential downpours and gusty winds that sweep through the area.
