Ganesha provides Weather Forecast for January 2008
Ganesha has set an astrological chart for the beginning of each season at the corresponding solstice or equinox, which afforded them more than just a broad-spectrum look at the season in question. From the planetary positions and aspects contained in the chart, Ganesha extracted a more detailed look at the quality of that particular spring, summer, fall, or winter.
These seasonal charts are set for the moment the Sun enters each of the cardinal signs of the zodiac. The Suns entrance into Aries marks the beginning of spring. Similarly, the Suns entrance into Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn denotes the beginning of summer, fall, and winter respectively. These Cardinal Solar Ingress charts are valid for the entire season they represent.
This winter, mainstream weather forecasters will not notice the angular positions of the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto. All of these planets will leave their mark on the winter season. This is because planets that fall on the angles i.e. the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven, and IC of these Cardinal Solar Ingress charts, have been observed to impress their individual and combined influences on the weather.
Following are some long-range forecasts for January 2008 based on the Solar Ingress Chart.
January 3-5, 2008
Generally increases temperatures and moisture. Expect a southerly air flow to bring precipitation to the West Coast States of Bombay, Goa, etc.
January 5-7, 2008
The West Coast continues to remain unsettled as a stormy pattern persists over the area.
January 5-7, 2008
The Western Ghats are under the influence of the Sun's sextile. Cold, dry air pushes southward over the Western Ghats. If enough moisture is in place, storms may be triggered.
January 6-8, 2008
Mercury and Uranus are considered cold planets in astrometeorology. The Sun's sextile to Uranus and its parallel to Mercury are the main influences at work over the Northeast India. These planetary aspects with the Sun argue a strong cold front with perhaps windy conditions over the region.
January 11-14, 2008
Cold, dry air from the north will clash with a warm, moist air mass over the Western Ghats generating a good storm system over the area.
January 18-20, 2008
The Venus-Mars opposition on the 19th will affect the central Plains states and Forests. Along with the combined effect of Mercury's parallel to Pluto, this should result in storms there.
January 20-22, 2007
Jupiter's trine to Saturn brings a lower range of temperatures and fair conditions. These conditions should be observed from the East Central States ( Bhagini Rajya ) through the Mid-Regions and Northeast as well as on the West Coast.
January 23-27, 2008
The eastern mouths of rivers are the focal points for severe weather during this five-day stretch. As is the case in most severe weather scenarios, warm and cold air masses collide resulting in storms. The 26th and 27th seem to be the most intense days.
January 29-Feb 2, 2008
Mars is equated with warmth and dryness. Great Plains where we should see an increase in temperatures and dry conditions.
While weather patterns seem, at times, to move disjointedly across the earths surface, there is an underlying order that God has established. This orderliness is made apparent when weather patterns are compared to planetary aspects, and Ingress and lunation charts. This may account for their present-day lack of any long-range forecast capability. The premise that planetary influence specifically aids in the creation of our weather is dismissed as utter foolishness by modern science. It could be worth their while to investigate it though, as it would not be the first time that the foolishness of God proves to be wiser than men!
