As we know, the weather fluctuates in different localities very drastically. Each locality has its own permanent receptive capability for the cosmic factors, and this depends locally on the earth's minerals, the shape of the ground surfaces, altitudes, water systems, etc. These differences and emphases can be divided again according to the etheric qualities.
Sandy soils and granite rock relate to the light element owing to their quartz content. Low-lying grounds (former sea bottoms) and lime containing grounds are responsive to the water element.
In the polar regions the forming of ice is connected with the earth element. In Lapland, Finland and Scandinavia, the influence of fells (as mountains in general) emphasize the earth element as well, but on the other hand the light effect is also very strong in the arctic areas. All oceans and smaller sea areas are primarily connected with the heavenly bodies representing the etheric water element (blue colour behind their names in the weather scores).
According to Maria Thun the different element zones wind around the globe both horizontally and vertically. Within the large element zones local small scale element areas can be discerned in addition to the dominant elemental influence.
Around the Arctic polar area there is an area of the etheric light. Around and to the north of the tropic of Cancer is a large zone of the element warmth, containing for example Mexico and the USA. Around the equator, in addition to the warmth, the strong elemental influences are water and earth (humidity and matter formation; rainforests), but water and earth are for example etheric qualities of Japan as well, in addition to the volcanic warmth.
Areas to the south of the tropic of Capricorn and around it belong to the element zone of light, containing especially Australia with its surroundings, but also the southern part of Africa. In addition, Argentina and Chile belong to the area of light, although the earth element of the Andes affects very strongly there, too. Between this zone of light and the earth element of Antarctis, there is still a zone of etheric warmth.
Thus, with elements similar attracts similar. The geographical receptive quality pulls the cosmic influences of the same element to the area in point, and we can see this connection as a corresponding behaviour in the weather. Although the matter, concerning plants, is much more complicated, same tendency can be recognized also in the vegetation of the different zones.
Although all the elements have some effect somehow usually everywhere (there are also biases), an example of a rough rule of thumb is that the 'warmth planet' Mercury strongly affects the USA and also the Mediterranean area. In the same way the 'light planet' Venus affects the whole of Finland, because Finland belongs to the extensive East European 'light-zone', which extends vertically all the way through Greece and Turkey still further to Africa. In Finland the effect of Venus can be seen especially in the eastern part of the country, which could be called a 'double light' zone. In South Finland the warm element influences, in addition to light, and it has been said that it would relate somehow to red granite. The planet constellations which are marked on the Mercury row should be watched, for example in the metropolitan area of Finland.
As regards Venus it must be pointed out that it will not 'make rains' even when it is moving in the cosmic area of the water element. It only interrupts drying of rains and 'lets them happen' if other factors try to cause rains.
Also the Sun, which is typically - and surprisingly - an earth element, affects generally everywhere in the world but especially in the mountainous areas. Corespondingly it affects the whole of Finland, but especially Lapland and Kainuu. The effect of the Sun is coloured by the element area it is moving in (the background color on its row).
Even if Mars, 'the water planet', strongly affects the western part of Central Europe, the effect of its constellations can be quickly seen also on the low-lying Finnish west coast. In the weather scores you should carefully watch the heavenly body's row and the different planet constellations appearing there, which you can see strongly affecting your own place of residence.
The Moon effects smaller changes (Thun), trying to change the dominating weather type in intervals of a few days to that element's course in which it is moving at the time and which it reflects. These changes quickly appear in the weather and they are usually the easiest way to start observing the weather from the viewpoint of the elements.
The large-scale weather type is seen generally from the background color of the rows of nearby planets. When some of the background colors change, it will take usually a few days before you can see the changes in the weather. It is actually really interesting to note these times of color changes, and observe how the change becomes visible in the perceived weather conditions.
Bigger delays we can see, for instance, in the influences of Sedna's and the water planets' shared constellations. Sedna's water constellations (long blue lines in Sedna's row) produce low pressures in the northern sea areas, and from there it takes usually a couple of days for them to drift onto the continent. The other constellations of Sedna appear sometimes even a day before the exact day as specific strong convections, rising flows of heat and quick descent of cold air (sometimes very violent), which means thunderstorms and squalls, and outside the thunder season it means rain. On the next day the weather is usually a little colder.
In the influences of the Galactic center we often can notice a four days' delay.
