It took a jump a few years ago to the West. So much so with that and the movement over the years, Miami airport had to re-do the orientation on it's runways.
When we moved in to our house 8 years ago the magnetic deviation was 4 and now it's 7 degrees.

I'm thinking more along the lines of the whole planet moving back to a 90 degrees. Right now the earth is at a 23 degree angle so that is why we have the four seasons as the earth travels around the sun. If it were to right-itself there would be no more seasons? Sorry if that doesn't make sense but it's something like that?

So that's the polar shifting I'm thinking of...the planet moving, and if the planet moves so will the magnatic field and there will be only one season per-year.

For the past 5 million years, Earth's obliquity has varied between 22° 02' 33" and 24° 30' 16", with a mean period of 41,040 years. This cycle is a combination of precession and the largest term in the motion of the ecliptic. For the next 1 million years, the cycle will carry the obliquity between 22° 13' 44" and 24° 20' 50".
