A ring around the sun or moon, means rain or snow is coming soon.

Moon dogs are formed when light passes
through hexagonal ice crystals
in cirrus or cirrostratus

Light gets bent twice
 at an angle of 22 degrees

Six is ruled by Venus
Balance within flux

If the moon shows like a silver shield,
You need not be afraid to reap your field 

But if she rises haloed round,
Soon we’ll tread on deluged ground.

Of interest:
The MOON RING is HUGE here tonight
22 degrees got me looking

Mars is applying within 14′ at 21 Aquarius
Jupiter Rx is receding within 19′ at 21 Leo

“The clouds are nature’s poetry, and the most egalitarian of her displays, since everyone has an equally fantastic view of them.
Clouds are for dreamers, and their contemplation benefits the soul. Yet their beauty is so everyday as to be in danger of being overlooked …”

is greek for air (aero) divination (manteia)
Divination from air or from atmospheric substances – such as clouds, rainbows, lightning storms, wind – anything in the atmo.
Neptune rules clouds and divination.
To practice aeromancy, think of a question . . . lay back in the grass . . . relax . . . let your mind wander  . . . let your stream of consciousness flow . . . free associate . . . signs and shapes in the clouds will reveal your answer.

 “… our fundamental nature of mind is a luminous expanse of awareness that is beyond all conceptual fabrication and completely free from the movement of thoughts.It is the union of emptiness and clarity, of space and radiant awareness that is endowed with supreme and immeasurable qualities.From this basic nature of emptiness everything is expressed; from this everything arises and  manifests.”

– Tibetan teacher Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche describing Buddha Nature
