The Air Transport Association (ATA) estimates 27 million passengers will fly between November 16 to 27, the busiest days expected to be November 21, 25-26. Planes are expected to fly at a record 90% load factor over the holiday.
Planetary energies at that time confirm the ATA’s warning to passengers to expect delays. In general, the best days for travel are November 16 after 8 AM ET, 17, 21 after 6 AM ET, 22 after 7:30 AM ET, 27. (Worst days in order of severity are November 24, 25, 23, 26.)
From November 22-26, Uranus is stationary as it moves direct on the 24th. (Planets do not really move backward, but appear to from Earth’s vantage point.) This means Uranus energies are strong now. Uranus rules air/space travel, technology and inventions, electricity, computers/electronics, and events that are shocking and surprising in nature. People have a greater tendency to be more independent and rebellious now.
Thanksgiving is the biggest travel holiday because it occurs when the Sun enters Sagittarius, the sign of long distance travel. What makes holiday travel particularly intense this year is that Uranus is moving direct on the day of the Full Moon in Gemini which rules communications and transportation. The Moon is at its closest distance to Earth this month, creating a bigger pull on the tides (which also occurred at last month’s Full Moon). Together these influences will create bad weather conditions in many parts of the world. There may be problems with air traffic control equipment.
That’s not all. The Full Moon in Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which is challenging Neptune. This can create fog and conditions of poor visibility. The alignment also creates poor mental judgment. Accidents may be caused through alcohol or drug use. Saturn challenging the Sun and Moon causes delays and cancellations. In a worst case scenario, a terrorist is able to get bomb making liquids aboard and/or hijacks the plane.
Looking at the Full Moon chart for the USA, some of the worst weather and/or problematic conditions, may occur in the Southwest to West, particularly southern California to the Nevada and Arizona borders. Severe weather may shut down Gulf oil platforms, and affect Louisiana, western Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indianapolis, Detroit. The most affected world locations (but here we’re getting into geopolitical causes as well) are: Mexico City to Central America, Brazil, Barcelona, Paris, Turkey, Jerusalem, Cairo, Japan, Australia/New Zealand. Pakistan faces escalating unrest and possibly an earthquake.
