The Storms of Halloween 2018

During the early afternoon of October 30th I saw on the weather station that there was an enhanced risk of a tornado outbreak in the southern states the following afternoon, on Halloween.

The National Weather Service  gave an assessment of a  15% chance of a tornado in that area on October 31st.

Remembering that 10/31 was a significant date on my Zodoc time series graph,

I drew a transit chart for noon the 31st. Immediately, I recognized the  developing Inconjuncts aspects, a semi-sextile / quincunx , pairing with a powerful opposition as a reliable indicator of very severe weather. So, I immediately made the following post to the NCGR Annapolis Facebook page in order to document the date and time of the post October 30, 2:13pm :

Forecast made on NCGR Annapolis October 30th

As it turned out, the Halloween Tornado Outbreak is the most significant tornado event of 2018, far surpassing the Springtime storms. Sadly, there were fatalities caused by this outbreak in addition to property damage.

I would just like to take this opportunity to point out to astrologers just how potent the Ptolemaic Inconjunct aspects really are. I have observed them many times occurring during the most violent storms on our Planet.






9-12 Peak Day

working on a summary of the 2018 Hurricane Forecast

Here are some rough draft results display

Original forecast, 8/8/18 on my Facebook page:

Two time frames of peak storm activity are indicated, the first in August actually occurred in the very active East Pacific Basin, between Mexico and Hawaii. I’ll have data on that later, but for now this deals with the second time period in September:


Three Major Hurricanes in Atlantic at same time

Forecast Florence

Few phenomena offer astrologers as clear a look at the physical results of actuated astrological factors as that of severe weather events, especially the most powerful weather events on planet Earth: Tropical Cyclones.

A benefit of our modern society is that we have tools that previous generations of astrologers did not have. Chief among them are our system of satellites that monitor our planet in the minutest detail and virtually in real time.

It has been my observation that tropical storms display characteristics similar to the planetary factors responsible for the storm. For example, if a hurricane was developing under the influence of a Mars / Mercury aspect, one could expect a sudden, brief, intense but somewhat small cyclone.

However, in the present case we have Hurricane Florence poised to intensify, first under a Sun/Jupiter/Pluto aspect, then Venus/Uranus/Saturn and finally Mercury/Neptune over the course of 9/10-9/14.

The presence of the Sun/Jupiter/Neptune in this configuration will result in a storm of exceptionally large size, the influence of Uranus will be to surprise everyone as to how rapidly a large storm, and the influence of Pluto is in the extreme power and intensity of this storm.

In other words, by 9/12, I expect to see a Huge Cat 5 Hurricane, with a large well defined ‘eye’, that catches everyone by surprise and causes some panic.

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……..
