Ongoing geomagnetic storm increasing on September 29th

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…

Passing through folds in the heliospheric current

Did you feel a drop in your energy on January 6th, starting around 19:30UTC (11:30am Pacific)? SpaceWeather says we may have passed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet, a giant, wavy membrane of electrical current rippling through the solar system: Yesterday, Jan. 6th, something unexpected happened in the soil of northern Norway. “Electrical…

Use the incoming solar wind for course correction

SpaceWeather says A large hourglass-shaped hole in the sun’s atmosphere is facing Earth and spewing solar wind in our direction. Estimated time of arrival: August 5th-6th. Minor G1-class geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras are possible when the gaseous material arrives. This solar wind will be hitting as we are moving into the energy of Lughnasadh,…

A follow up to Saturday’s blog post about Solar Activity

On Saturday, I posted about an ongoing energy shift due to solar activity. According to SpaceWeather, the Sun is sending bursts of radio energy toward Earth strong enough to make audible noises in the loudspeakers of common shortwave receivers. That’s pretty strong. People are feeling uneasy. I have talked before about how the energy of…

Energy shift, courtesy of Sol

From SpaceWeather: This weekend, one of the largest sunspots in recent years is directly facing Earth. The behemoth is not producing strong flares, but it is doing something rare and interesting. A canyon of light (called a “light bridge”) is opening inside the sunspot’s dark core, presaging a possible disruptive breakup. This bodes well for…

The solar wind is coming! The solar wind is coming!

So, I received an alert from SpaceWeather: During solar minimum, long-lasting holes open in the sun’s atmosphere, releasing streams of solar wind into space. A large hole in the sun’s atmosphere is facing Earth and spewing a stream of solar wind in our direction. Polar geomagnetic storms are likely when the gaseous material arrives on…

Heads up: Incoming solar activity again!

This note about solar activity came through my inbox today: NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is monitoring a large hole in the sun’s atmosphere, now directly facing Earth. A stream of solar wind escaping from the opening is expected to reach our planet during the late hours of Nov. 3rd, likely sparking minor G1-class geomagnetic storms…

Some unsettling energy going on – What to do with it?

Saturn is in Capricorn, which has the effect of forcing us to be present and in the moment. On March 8th, Jupiter went retrograde in Scorpio. Jupiter is generally expansive and is very tied to our beliefs. Scorpio is all about transformation. Also on March 8, the shadow of Mercury Retrograde in Aries began (actual…

Magnetic Boost from the Sun

I received an interesting alert from SpaceWeather today: Today, a high speed solar wind stream is passing just south of Earth, making grazing contact with our planet’s magnetic field. This is causing something unusual to happen. Around the poles, Earth’s magnetic field has been ringing like a bell. Rob Stammes recorded the phenomenon from his…

Oh, that wacky sky energy…

Feeling edgy or anxious? We’ve got a few things going on. (1) This New Moon in Scorpio has some prickly energy associated with it. Best to do some writing, meditating, and/or general introspection. Just be prepared, it might get heavy. Better than not doing it, though. (2) This week Earth has been moving through a…
