In an earlier post, “Will there be Tornadoes next Week?” I expected a tornado would result from the Mercury/Uranus & Sun/Pluto inconjuncts forming Monday & Tuesday. In fact a tornado has resulted from this pattern, just a tad earlier than I thought.
On Sunday morning, a totally unexpected EF-1 struck a Tampa Bay neighborhood and did a considerable amount of damage, just as Mercury, partile to the Lunar Nodes, was within 1*05″ of Uranus, and the rising Capricorn pattern in aspect to Neptune in Pisces .
At some point in the history of astrology, Ptolemy’s Inconjunct aspects, the semi-sextile and the quincunx, became relegated to the back burner of an ever increasing number of astrological paradigms. In today’s astrology, if considered at all, they are regarded as “minor” and are regarded as less significant than other, more ‘modern’ factors.
This coming Monday night, December 10th, and all day Tuesday December 11th, there is a very distinct pattern of inconjuncts forming between some very powerful planetary factors: Scorpio Mercury 150* Aries Uranus, partile at 29*, and at the same time, Sagittarius Sun 30* Capricorn Pluto, partile at 20*
I believe these factors will result in another outbreak of cyclone activity. Probably tornadoes in the Southern USA, and maybe some tropical cyclone activity in the southern hemisphere.
Here is a chart showing the large spikes in tornado action during the last two inconjunct patterns at the end of October and December 1st:
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.
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 :
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.
Beginning on May 18th, Jupiter in Scorpio joins Neptune in Pisces for a two week long Partile. This I believe will result in severe flooding events in various places, but probably the West Coast USA should see the brunt of it.
UPDATE MAY 27TH
SEVERE FLOODING IN MY HOMETOWN OF BALTIMORE, AND, VERY SADLY, ELLICOTT CITY HAS BEEN WIPED OUT FOR THE SECOND TIME IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS. THE JUPITER / NEPTUNE PATTERN DESCRIBED ABOVE WAS 0*:17′:00″, AT MAXIMUM INTENSITY IN SCORPIO AND PISCES. SUBTROPICAL STORM ALBERTO IS ABOUT TO MAKE LANDFALL TODAY, MEMORIAL DAY. I EXPECT MORE SEVERE FLOODING WILL BE IN THE NEWS FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS, 5/28-6/2
Mars is due to enter Aquarius in mid May and will dwell there until mid August, retrograde into Capricorn for a month, then back to Aquarius again until mid-November.
Mars in Aquarius will be an available source of COLD DRY AIR, which is an essential ingredient of Thunderstorms and Tornadoes. So look for a higher than average pattern of severe storms this late spring and early summer
