Synchronization of Transits

2009/03/24

The times in this world-wide blog are set by the Moon Transits and we use Universal  Time Center (UTC, formerly known as Greenwich Mean Time, GMT, near London, UK.) Since I am in New Zealand, and just over the date-line, I am eleven hours ahead of UTC from April to October and twelve  hours ahead the rest of the year.   When I list a Transit of the Moon to the next Constellation, I will use the UTC, which might mean nightfall here, and sunrise in Greenwich, of the same date.

I can only hope each individual who contributes will see the value in understanding the spin of the earth to coordinates reports; the Moon Transits occur at a certain hour, which each part of the world sees at their own “time.”  We will want to know your locations for general interest, but the times should all be counted in UTC World Time, such as six in the evening written 1800UTC.  Please comment below to steer us to a website with a widget for determining UTC for your particular location; we will mount the widget on the blog frame.

I hope everyone writes every other day or so, to coincide with the Moon Transits, or cusps.  That way, we will build a large database quickly and be able to know if there is a pattern to the type of clouds, and the way they act.  I have been calling that the Characteristic of the weather.

So this research is exciting, because we can quickly find parallels  of abrupt changes in the Characteristic of the weather at the Moon Transits, throughout the world.  For those unfamiliar with Steiner’s concepts, this will be a powerful argument to investigate Anthroposophy.

You will discover that we want to make a keen observance of changes in the weather at the cusps, to note differences in the characteristic of the two Constellations.  Biodynamic researchers have written that they are quite confident of effects of agricultural processes in the center of the period of the Constellations.   Apparently, it has been difficult to determine effects of work at the cusps, and it seems to make sense that the effect of the moon will be visible in the air (and among insects) before reaching down into the heavier and more complex soil matrix.
