Astro Meteorology is an integration of Meteorology, an atmospheric science and Astrology, the Wisdom of the Nine Revolving Heavens. The Solar transits of the constellations are studied and each solar transit was found to have some characteristics. The Kerala mathematicians, after years of Experimentation, Observation and Hypothesis, came up with the Kerala Njauttuvela Calendar.
We find that from the solar transit of Lamda Orionis to the Alpha Cancri, it rains heavily in the 825 km Malabar Coast and the rains continue till the end of the solar transit of Delta Scorpi ! In other words, solar transits from Eta Tauri to Delta Scorpi are wet days on the Malabar Coast with sunny interludes. The rest are all summer months from the Sun's transit of sidereal Sagittarius to Sidereal 15th degree of Taurus. Edava Pathi, the South West Monsoon, the Thula Varsham, the North East Monsoon and the Njattuvelas or Solar transits are the seasons of Kerala and not Winter, Spring, Summer and Winter !
Satabhisha Njattuvela began on 19/02/2014
Chathayam Njattuvela began on Feb 19 and we have started to experience the heat, as predicted by the Astro Meterology savants. The Hot Season has begun in Kerala ! The sidereal month of Kumbha or Aquarius started on 13 Feb ! Kerala may reel under a Heat Wave and it is to be remembered that the death toll was more than 100 last year due to sunstroke.
Aquarius is hot and so is Pisces. Kumbha Choodu and Meena Choodu Keralites call them. Of course, there are sporadic summer rains or Venal Mazha, but Aquarius and Pisces are characterised by blistering heat and lack of major rains.
We cannot expect major rains till Kala Varsha, the
South West Monsoon, which will
start on May 29th. The Half of sidereal Taurus. Last year it started raining
on the 28th May, one day ahead of schedule ! We thirst for rains, as the land has a parched, desert look !
