Travel under the Moon

2009/08/21

As you will see from the blog and Twitter, I generally write about the transit of the Moon as it occurs. These transits, or motion of the Moon from one constellation to the next, are proving to be the key to the characteristics of the clouds and rains. This issue seems rather simple, and I know that others have tracked the rains in relation to moon’s phases.

 There is a reliable folk saying that if the new moon arrives in clear weather, then it will continue dry for ten to fourteen days. Since yesterday’s new moon was in a Fruit/Fire constellation, I think there will be less rains than normal, but since we are close to the equinox, we are entering some unstable weather patterns. I am back after a month of travel, but while traveling met several people who ssid they would add information, so  ‘Keep tuned!’
