Doubts About Weather effected by the Moon

2009/07/27

Frankly, a large proportion of people are not aware of Rudolf Steiner, and many have a negative opinion about his evolving Spiritual Science.  So I find myself repeating that this is NOT astrology, but rather Astronomy.  With more than a year’s experience correlating the B-D calendar with the weather, I have reported several repeating patterns.

A few days ago, I had a meeting with an important client. We talked just after the moon shifted to Virgo, and we soon had a moderate rain.  Even so, my comments about my records of rains at the cusps were ridiculed.  I need more support from you, gentle reader, and comments about the rain events in your area!

The rains are most often at the cusps, the beginning or the end of the moon’s transit, or passage, through each constellation.  Other characteristics are beginning to emerge, but I do not want to list expectations too early in this research.  The only thing safe to say is that we will have beautiful sunsets in the time of the Flower/Air Constellation that starts about 2300 UTC, July 28.

Twitter is a Weather-Watchers-Wonder

2009/07/05

I have taken a big dive into a sea of Twits, where you will find me bubling up at “yogazeal”  Counting Tweets from my Search for the term DOWNPOUR – and found over a dozen per hour! Exciting start to a new internet addiction.  If we can trace the rate of Tweets with the term DOWNPOUR during all Constellations, we may be able to prove the B-D calendar in a few months.

According to the B-D calendar, this will end in 24hrs, when the HEAT starts in the Flower/Fire Constellation.  The advantage of Twitter is that correspondents receive the note promptly to their phones, so that all can share the weather as it occurs.  If you are not a fan of Twitter or Astrology, no worries!  I will transcribe the log of events back here to our blog.

In any case, I see the world of Twitter as a large source of instant weather updates.  I expect it will help us establish the characteristics of the weather as we transit thru the Constellations.

Root/Earth Constellation at the End of March

2009/03/28

First steps toward prediction are to take records, and so far I have noticed rain has fallen almost exclusively in the Leaf/Water and Root/Earth Constellations.  In the Northern Hemisphere, spring rains will be much heavier than our autumn drizzles here in the South of New Zealand.  With your concerted observations from across the globe, we shall see Characteristics unfolding throughout.

Soon, at 0300 UTC, the Moon shifts into the Taurus Constellation, a Root/Earth Constellation.  Here we have had hot dry weather, and that is forecast to continue, but with clouds, and so I expect some drizzle in the day, as this has been the pattern in the summer.  The Moon is in Root/Earth until the end of the month, and I trust your comments will start coordinated efforts. 

At any certain time of the year, the Phase of the Moon, and the Constellation, will define the time of day that the Moon draws tides.  If we accept that water in plants can also move under the influence of the Moon, that vascular tide will interplay with the plant metabolism in powerful ways.  Imagine the difference for the plant to get High Tide at midday, with photosynthesis in full swing, as opposed to High Tides at dawn and sunset! 

In terms of astronomy, the Constellation of New Moons indicates which Constellation the sun is in.  For example, the March New Moon was in Pisces.  This is an example of the precession of the equinoxes.  Astrology in the west defines the Sun Signs according to their location in the sky of some date about 3500 years ago, at the time of early Hindus;  present day Hindu ‘Jyotish’ astrology uses the Sun Signs close to their astronomically accurate locations.  Note that the Jyotish calendar does not use the full size of the Constellations, but has shifted for convenience to a 56-hour transit ascribed to each Constellation.  The power of this blog is that we will be able to ascertain the Constellation effects at the cusps, close to the astronomical transits.
