December Tornado Outbreak: Another Lesson on the Inconjunct Factor
As astrologer’s, it’s not too often that we see a planetary pattern repeat itself nearly exactly and then to have the nearly exact same results repeat themselves precisely on time, but that is what has just happened on 12/1/18 in central Illinois.
I posted a forecast on October 30th at 2:13pm (see “The Storms of Halloween”) regarding an exact Venus-Uranus opposition with Mercury also becoming exact as a semi-sextile and quincunx participant in the overall pattern, which could be described as a ‘half-Yod’. The final result was that the October 31st outbreak became the top tornado day of 2018.
Through the magic of retrograding planets, this exact pattern has reformed itself on December 1st, resulting in another destructive tornado outbreak, though slightly less intense. The Halloween Outbreak was a lot stronger on account of the quarter Moon at perigee and the ‘half-Yod’ being partile to the Lunar Nodes.
On many occasions I have observed an Inconjunct in effect during the most severe storms. I believe the lesson here is that it is a mistake for the astrological community to consider the Inconjuncts as ‘minor’ or even omitting them altogether. They are an integral part of an entire twelve-fold cycle of Signs interacting with other Signs by means of varying planetary alignments.
