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:
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.
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……..
