As the Moon, Descending here in the Antipodes, moved into the Root/Earth Constellation of Virgo, Auckland has had heavy thunderstorms, and even Nelson, NZ, got some rain. This is the type of rain event we had in the summer, when the cusps, entering (or leaving) the Leaf/Water and Root/Earth Constellations, brought spectacular rain.
And the B-D practicioners of the world must be aglow after reports that wine tasting at upscale London vintners are now held according to the Moon Constellations. These reports all list the originator of this measure as Maria Thun. The odd news is that commentators appear to think the wine itself changes with the moon, rather than the people and their perceptions under its Menstrual influence.
That is good news for this project, but may be viewed in the negative light of Crass Commercialism. Cold Marketing Logic insists on using this new data to promote sales. But I am willing keep working to prove the accuracy of Maria Thun’s categories.
Perhaps we could steer the sales towards sustainable organic products, because many researchers have commented that the B-D calendar is effective for organic crops more than chemically-stimulated crops.
