Atlantic Basin Wakes Up

In my initial forecast I described the 8/12 to 8/26 time frame of the Jupiter/Neptune trine as when the Atlantic should wake up, which it didn’t, and the East Pacific instead continued its excessive activity.

The second time frame I gave was 9/4 thru 9/22, when Jupiter in Scorpio will be sextile to Pluto in Capricorn against a background influence of a nearly complete trine of Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus.

Just yesterday and today Tropical storm Gordon made a messy landfall, Tropical Storm Florence rapidly intensified into a category 4 hurricane, and formed a well-defined ‘eye’, (see pic) under the additional influence of a quickly peaking Leo Mercury inconjunct Capricorn Mars today, 9/5. Rolling of the coast of Africa right now are two more disturbances likely to form into tropical cyclones.

It should be noted that all of the initial NHC forecasts from 8/31 including up to yesterday, 9/4, had Florence as a maximum 60kt tropical storm.

Have a look at the time series distribution of planetary aspects coming up, or rather peaking, first on 9/7-8 then again on 9/10-13. Looks like at least one more major hurricane, probably multiples occurring simultaneously.

Heads up, seat belts on, bumpy road just ahead……..
