Winter 2012/2013 promises some sunny but breezy weeks with clear skies, but this weather will be interrupted by intermittent spells of freezing fogs, prolonged periods of drizzly rain and sleet showers, and more protracted periods of mists and clouds than is usual for our UK winter season.
Looking at the map of planetary positions Mercury augurs well from the outset for the blue sky outlook over Ireland and western parts of Great Britain, combining with winds which may result in gale force blizzard type predominantly North Westerly activity due to the crossing with Mars to the NW of Scotland.
Venus close on the heel of these winds promises snow. Snow, frost and icy weather will have already arrived by October 2012, and more snowfall is heralded for December-February especially for southern regions of the UK with the position of Venus so close to our part of the world and featuring strongly near the mc/ic axis of the solstice chart. Venus crosses Mars off the NW coast of Scotland and these two are always the chief suspects in regard to snowy weather, sleet and blizzards, so I expect this configuration off the NW coast of Scotland to be sending in some snow blizzards.
Saturn is moving in our direction also and in Scorpio it does not bode well for drains, boggy land and underground watering places which will be assaulted by the stormy conditions and flooding he is promising to bring our way over the winter period before March 2013.
Taking a look at the Neptune influence on the chart it does look like some murky conditions are affecting a huge swathe of the SE sector of England from December if you watch the line Neptune forms from Budleigh Salterton up to Berwick upon Tweed in the NE of England. This looks likely to be outbursts of mists and freezing fog near the solstice, especially around low lying areas near rivers and lakes particularly and it does look to be affecting major airports! Such conditions will appear again over the ensuing winter months.
Saturn in Scorpio figures in many of the historical flood charts I have been looking at over the years, so it is set to bring some pretty murky conditions our way for the whole of 2013.....watch this space!
