SpaceWeather issued this missive about geomagnetic activity over the weekend:
A solar wind stream is heading for Earth, and it could spark the strongest geomagnetic storm in more than a year. NOAA forecasters say storm levels could reach category G2 (moderately strong) when the gaseous material arrives on Sept. 29th. Bright “equinox auroras” are already dancing around the Arctic Circle. If the G2-storm unfolds as predicted, Northern Lights could descend into upper-tier US states as well.
For the 4th day in a row, Earth’s magnetic field is pulsing with the ebb and flow of solar wind, producing spectacular auroras around the Arctic Circle.
So we’re probably already feeling it. And it’s going to increase.
Solar activity affects the magnetic field of the Earth, and therefore of the people on the planet as well. We can often feel “jangly” or out of sorts, more irritable, spacey, and distracted.
Solar activity is picking up. Sunspot AR2773 erupted during the early hours of Sept. 26th, producing a C1-class solar flare. A pulse of radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth’s atmosphere. This caused a minor radio blackout across the Pacific Ocean. This flare is one of the strongest of young Solar Cycle 25, and it breaks a 35-day string of deep quiet and almost complete spotlessness.
Geir Svendsen of Lofoten, Norway, photographed the image to the left during a G1-class geomagnetic storm on Sept. 26th.
“It was very colorful,” he says. “Streamers of pink descended from overhead like a rainstorm of light.”
Pink is significant. It means that particles from space are descending lower than usual in Earth’s atmosphere. Most auroras are green–the color of oxygen atoms struck by electrons 100 km to 300 km above Earth’s surface. Pink appears when electrons burrow deeper, striking nitrogen molecules at the 100 km level and below.
As I said on Facebook
Eat as close to nature as possible
I would also suggest modified sun salutations
It’s important to remember (or learn) that the Sun is a second-level aspect of the heart chakra of our higher self. So this is an opportunity to clean out old wounds and blockages from our own heart center, and to increase our vibration, which basically just means to move on a bit with our spiritual evolution. The link above about Sun Salutations has other suggestions for surfing the energy more effectively as well.
