If you were expecting some kind of sun sign nonsense, forget it. This is real astrology. See the section above. And if you need help deciphering the astrological glyphs in the graphics accompanying these forecasts, see Astroglyphs: Astrological Symbols Guide. Please note: all forecasts are expressed in terms of Universal Time (UT).

I had warned about "storm clouds roiling the sky and seismic waves rumbling the ground from day one through the 6th," with the 3rd and 4th being the days of greatest geocosmic activation. Sure enough, thunderstorms pounded parts of Texas with hail as big as tennis balls and wind blasting to more than 80 mph on the 1st. More than a half-million Texans lost their electrical power in the storm that tore into the Lone Star State on the 1st, grounding flights at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field and flooding Arlington streets more than a foot deep. That same day saw killer storms lash West Virginia with 70 mph winds in excess of 70 mph, blacking out over 100,000 utility customers and causing over $3 million in damage to roads, prompting state officials to make plans for seeking a federal disaster declaration. High wind, tornadoes, heavy rain and hail were on the loose in the Northeast as well, grounding flights at Newark Liberty International Airport for a couple hours.

At the same time, heavy rains in the northeast Brazilian state of Alagoas spawned floods that killed 20 people and left 2,100 homeless, mainly in the hilly slums around the state capital, Maceio. Of the 20 dead, 18 were killed in mudslides and two by drowning. There was heavy rainfall in the Swiss Alps the next day, triggering flood warnings in Switzerland, and closing the Rhine to boat traffic between France and Switzerland.

As for the "seismic waves rumbling the ground from day one through the 6th" portion of the forecast, an earthquake measuring 5.0 on the Richter scale jolted Taiwan exactly on the 6th. However, as it turned out, the real threat came from the skies during the early June SuperMoon. That same day, for example, another round of severe thunderstorms battered northern Texas with heavy rain and winds up to 70 mph during the night. An estimated six inches of rain fell from late on Sunday the 6th into early Monday in parts of Fort Worth, Denton and communities along Interstate 35, which was blocked by high water in places. People had to be rescued from stalled cars and from homes flooded by water up to six feet deep in Fort Worth and Tarrant County late Sunday. The storms knocked out electrical service for large areas surrounding Fort Worth.

I foretold of a "brief upsurge in storms and seismic disturbances" being "likely a day either side of the 11th," and so it should have come as no surprise when the Mount Awu volcano on Sangihe Island in northeastern Indonesia exploded in a major eruption on Thursday the 10th, hurling stones and spewing smoke 9,900 feet into the air. The island's airport was closed and authorities blocked roads leading to the mountain. A light coat of ash from the volcano - which lies just south of the Philippines' Mindanao Island - settled over local beaches and villages. But things were far from settled in the nearby Philippines that day, when a tornado ripped through the coastal town of Dulag on Leyte island, destroying hundreds of houses and killing at least two people.
