taken from the software, The Dynamic Solar System, shows the
positions of the planets for August 12, when the Moon is new or directly
aligned with the Sun. In the diagram the Moon is superimposed on the planet
Venus; the planets are shown much larger than they really are. Venus is
almost directly aligned with the sun, as close as it gets to Earth each
Venus cycle. That's millions of miles. Much, much further out, Earth is also
aligned with Neptune. The Moon is new, which amplifies planetary
influences. One of the influences of Neptune I have noticed is sleep.
Furthermore Mercury is moving rapidly into this line up and Saturn,
although slightly past the line up may still have some influence. Solar
activity will probably increase for a few days around this time. The
software program which produced this diagram gives numerical data for both
heliocentric and geocentric positions and can be set in motion or set to any
date +/-10,000 years.
