Indian Summer

An Indian Summer has been forcast Norway towards the weekend with temperatures up towards 25C. This occurs as the Sun in Libra is sextile Mars in Leo. Mars in aspect with the luminaries is according to tradition and affairs at large, associated with pushing up temperatures. Maybe this one is more significant because Mars in in Leo and disposed by the Sun? Sun square Pluto would also be more fierce?

The problem is that celestial aspects among the planets have an universal meaning, while anything related to the weather must bear local significance. The warm weather forcast our Northern latitudes is due to hot air being pushed up from the South. Someone might be noting it? Anyone?

Hi Andrew,

Excellent idea to create an ongoing thread on weather prediction. Thumbs up

I believe full, new and quarter Moon charts are quite important based on location. Also solar ingress for the bigger picture. As with solar ingress charts a key factor is the angularity of planets and fixed stars. As you say though it is tricky if you have a general weather front across northern Europe. We also seem to be getting this hot spell in Scotland later this week too.

Here are some resources for members.

First of all here is an introduction to the subject of Astrometeorology by Kim Farnell

http://www.skyscript.co.uk/meteorology1.html

Another article by Kim examining the history of the subject:

http://www.kimfarnell.co.uk/weather1.htm

Some further articles looking on the history of astrological weather prediction:

http://www.hps.cam.ac.uk/starry/weather.html
http://www.hps.cam.ac.uk/starry/keplerweather.html

For those of you interested in traditional astrology a highly recommended title is the book by David Hernandez. Its entitled Astrometeorology: A Collection of Traditional Methods of Judging and Forecasting Weather and is sold as an ebook. David Hernandez can be reached at david@astrologiaholistica.com.

Carolyn Egan has an online class in weather astrology at http://www.weathersage.com/.

Carolyn has a page on her website with recommeded reading list on the subject:
http://www.weathersage.com/books.htm

I thought I might remind members about Bruce Scofield's PHD dissertation last year entitled 'A History and Test of Planetary Weather Forecasting.'' Here is the free download link:

http://scholarworks.umass.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1235&context=open_access_dissertations


Perigree -Apogee dates for the Moon.
http://www.weathersage.com/resources/index.htm

A summary of all the astrological techniques used to predict weather since the 17th century:

http://www.weathersage.com/techniques.htm

Nina Gryphon has done several weather forecasts on her blog
http://gryphonastrology.com/blog/category/weather-forecasts/

I understand David Hernandez and Nina Gryphon both took Carolyn's course.

Another site doing weather forecasting with astrology:
The Weather Alternative http://theweatheralternative.blogspot.com/

Many traditional texts discuss weather prediction. For example Claudius Ptolemy's Tetrabiblos and Guido Bonatti's Book of Astronomy.

Here is a link to an online translation of Ptolemy's Tetrabiblos:

The Netherlands are expecting nice weather too this weekend, to end after tuesday. Returning from a Mediterranean holiday tomorrow, I can use a more subtle change in another climate instead of having to plunge in a rainy and cold country. I'll try to push some more of the warmth over here on my journey back to the north Smile .

Heat record in the month of March

This week there has been a heatwave in Norway and yesterday, March 22. 2012, there was a new heat record. The warmest temperature measured in March - Ever! In Oslo temperatures rose to +18C, while one part of the country noted +20C.

Astrologically, there is the inferior conjunction of Mercury to take into consideration. Mercury is the quicksilver, in sports events it may indicate the Record, which is a variable that lies higher than the Gold Medal. Some texts connect the inferior conjunction of Mercury to spectacular phenomena in nature - although I cannot remember off hand whether it was Norstand or Pearce who associated it with Earthquakes.

In addition to the inferior conjunction of Mercury (March 21. 19 GMT: Moon in Pisces and the warm winds were said to come up from Portugal!), on March 22. there was the New Moon in the 3rd degree of Aries - in conjunction with Uranus!! Maybe that goes for an irregular spell?? Surprised
