I have long been fascinated by the possibility of forecasting the weather by the planets and I recently found a website (unfortunately I don’t recall the path I took) called The Weather Alternative that is quite interesting.
Here in North Carolina we could really use some rain, and summer hurricanes off the Atlantic coast usually provide that rain for us. The Weather Alternative reports:
June 5-8, 2007:
The opposition between the Sun and Jupiter will trigger the lunar eclipse of March 3, 2007, affecting the coastal areas of North and South Carolina between 77 and 79 West Longitude and 33 North Latitude. Its influence extends northward through New Jersey. The warm influence, characteristic of Sun-Jupiter alignments, and high velocity winds, indicated by aspects between Jupiter and Uranus (also present at this time), carry the potential for severe weather over this area, which may be tropical in nature.
June 15-17, 2007:
Seventy-seven West Longitude, running through Cuba, the Bahamas, and North Carolina is the focal point for increased wind velocities as Mercury makes its retrograde station. The Moon also adds to the mix by being at its closest approach to Earth and at maximum north declination as it conjoins Mercury. If not an actual tropical system, a cold front dropping through the Northeast pushes southward toward the Carolinas triggering windy conditions.
June 24-July 3, 2007:
This is an important time due to the opposition between Saturn and Neptune, which correlates with excessive humidity, prolonged heavy rains, and flood threats. (See specifics below)
June 24-27, 2007:
The central to eastern Gulf Coast is in jeapordy now as tropical moisture is shunted northward over the region pushing into the Mississippi Valley and Deep South.
Other areas worth watching for severe weather are western Canada around 117 West/51 North, and Ireland.
June 27-29, 2007:
The eastern Gulf and Gulf Coast are still under the gun as the Sun conjoins Mercury. These two coincide with increased wind velocity and, in season, hurricane formation. The central panhandle of Florida and northward through Atlanta are places in the line of fire now.
June 30-July 3, 2007:
Venus now triggers the Saturn-Neptune opposition drawing moisutre up over South Carolina and the Southeast.
Expect an influx of mositure from the south over the Baja California into the Desert Southwest.
The site also keeps track of its predictions compared to the actual weather events, and the comparisons are pretty impressive!
