We had consistent predictions of showers for the day, and expected steady rain in the night of Root/Earth Constellation. So far, in this Constellation, we have had gusty winds, various types of clouds, and a few sprinkles (light showers,) even including a distant rainbow at mid-day. But the daytime rains held off, which is a pattern we had in Flower/Air Constellations in March and April.
It seems that this is the TYPE of storm, often with extended periods of high winds, followed by heavy rain. The ambitious purpose of this blog is to track the storms, and see if they change character near the cusps. Since they move across the country at a rate of 500 to 1000 km each day, a small group of people can define the storm in unison.
In fact, late night brought strong winds and short bursts of rain – not the STEADY RAIN predicted, and noted in Root/Earth Constellations in Summer. The clouds cleared at dawn, but then are returning as Stratus clouds, no rain threatening, but large, fast moving and low. In the evening the Root/Earth Constellation passed into Flower/Air.
So, in the Flower/Air Constellation of Aquarius, we have had some steady rains, with large cumulonimbus clouds covering wide areas of the sky. We have had the steady rains about once every six hours, interspersed with clear skies.
Meanwhile, we have shifted into Pisces, starting at 0700 UTC, 19 May, until the moon moves into Aries at 0300 UTC, 22 May. It has been hard to notice IF it rains, since the water on the ground does not evaporate – it is COLD!
