Planetary Retrograde Calendar.

Joshua 10: 12-13:

"Then spake Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.

"And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day." …

I thought it was going to be a major pain in my posterior to find detail of planetary retrograde motions.

I thought that I was going to have to get a nautical almanack and start working out angles of Right Ascension (positions of the planets against their stellar back-drop.)

I was pleasantly surprised to fins that there are table all over the Internet telling me exactly what I wanted to know (search for "Planetary Retrograde Calendar".)

  1. Here is one that uses angles not constellations: is more than a little evidence that there is some astromic value to the behaviour of the planets. Here is one geomancer's work: has a certain noteriety in Britain, the BBC made a progamme abut his making bets on the weather and the Met Office's ill starred attempts to get him to play nice with them.I can understand his antipathy. They won't play nice with me.

  2. make animated gifs like this at MakeAGif

    The last time I can remember seeing anything like this there followed a Tropical Storm in the region of Madagascar.

    Long gone in another computer but IIRC, it is on here somewhere.

  3. I made a remark on here that:Originally posted by inattentive idiot:

    Nothing goes retrograde until the middle of May. Meanwhile on planet earth, the time of this phase is: 09:58 and that means it will be similar weather to any lunar spells at 10 and 4 o'clock. And there just happens to be some boat anchor type fronts in the North Atlantic. These indicate volcanic activity.That High never appeared in the previous anomally. And volcanic activity requires wet weather spells AND major instability.Those broken lines (dotted fronts) show that nothing is stable for long in the forecast. Bear in mind though that seismic/volcanic activity tends to rectify that. (Along with "that" being a symptom of earthquakes, that is.)It's all very straight forward and immensely complicated.
