Weather forecasters across the country announced the arrival of the first day of autumn on September 22, 2005. However, they were fully aware of how this would affect the forecasts they will make throughout the season. In general, of course, meteorologists understand that due to the Earth's orbit around the sun, the sun now appears to be above the equator and is moving south. This means a loss of solar energy for the northern hemisphere, and a loss of solar energy means weather changes. But that's it for them.
The old ones had a different understanding. An astrological map created at the beginning of each season at the appropriate solstice or equinox offered them more than just a broad view of the season in question. They extracted a more detailed view of the quality of that particular spring, summer, autumn, or winter from the planet positions and aspects included in the map. Would it be a dry season or a windy one? Would it be a mild or a hard winter? When would certain weather phenomena take place?
The nice thing about this method is that weather phenomena can be predicted months and years in advance, since planetary positions can be calculated far into the future. This integrated, environmentally friendly forecasting tool for alerts is one of God's thoughtful conveniences that, if used correctly, could save time, money, and life.
This year, long-term forecasts based on this method have been met in hurricanes Alpha, Wilma, Otis, Dennis and tropical storms Irwin and Arlene.
