Here Comes the Sun -- 2012 & 2013 Version

Here Comes the Sun -- 2012 & 2013 Version | Solar & Cosmic

Updated after the July 4, 2012 X-Class Solar Flare and Companion Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) as well as After More CMES are Heading our Way July 9 - 10… Original Dateline: Monday January 23, 2012 – Unless you have been living under a rock somewhere, you probably know we are nearing a height in the 11-year sunspot cycle – with peaking predicted for 2012 to around 2014. Just last week – around the time I was reminding folks via Twitter that we were about to have a powerful Aquarius New Moon Sunday January 22, followed by an even more powerful Mars in Virgo station and turn retrograde on Monday January 23 – a solar flare emerged from the Sun and then sent a coronal mass ejection (CME) or plasma of high-charged particles from the Sun into our upper atmosphere.

The potency of this CME, according to the website www.spaceweather.com“…strongly compressed Earth's magnetic field and briefly exposed satellites in geosynchronous orbit to solar wind plasma. For the next 24 hours, Earth's magnetic field reverberated from the impact, stirring bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. Bjørn Jørgensen observed this display from Tromsø, Norway: ‘This was amazing,’ he says. ‘It was a wonderful experience to see these stunning auroras.’"

M-9 Solar Flare on Sunday January 22 is the Strongest in 7 Years*

Meanwhile, as the Earth was receiving the plasma force on Sunday from last week’s moderate solar flare, the website www.space.com was reporting the following:

“Early this morning (0359 GMT Jan. 23, which corresponds to late Sunday, Jan. 22 at 10:59 p.m. EST), NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught an extreme ultraviolet flash from a huge eruption on the sun…Several NASA satellites, including the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), and the Stereo spacecraft observed the massive sun storm. Scientists call these electromagnetic bursts ‘coronal mass ejections’ (CMEs), and they are closely studied because they can produce potentially harmful geomagnetic storms when the charged particles rain down Earth's magnetic field lines. In addition to generating stronger than normal displays of Earth's auroras (also known as the northern and southern lights), geomagnetic storms aimed directly at our planet can also disrupt satellites in orbit, cause widespread communications interference and damage other electronic infrastructures.’

*Note: At least two stronger Solar Flares have erupted since January 22, 2012.

Is the Red Planet Mars Involved with this Solar Flare?

What I find really intriguing in all of this is the role that planets in our solar system might be playing in (a) creating sunspots in the first place, and (b) possibly triggering solar flares and CMEs due to their stations or other, intense changes in their orbits

For instance, look at this statement – also presented on www.space.com :

“The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) and NASA's STEREO-B spacecraft detected a CME rapidly emerging from the blast site. Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab say the leading edge of the CME will reach Earth on Jan. 24 at 14:18UT (+/- 7 hours.) Their animated forecast track shows that Mars is in the line of fire, too; the CME will hit the Red Planet during the late hours of Jan. 25.”

Review those last two lines again carefully as I have made them bold. Although Mars is exceedingly strong right now relative to Earth – because it appears to be motionless from our vantage point in the solar system, and its station and shift into reverse has just occurred within less than 24 hours of a New Moon – both of these important factors have to do with our lives on our home planet. However, why is it that the CME will hit us somewhere to the north (a glancing blow), but then will interact with Mars, almost like an expert billiards player sending one ball into another in order to carom off on a tangent and then hit another ball? This appears to be a case of deliberate celestial orchestration by divine means – either that or mere coincidence

I say this because Mars is not currently in any kind of straight line with the Earth and the Sun. There is no seeming geometric reason for Mars to get hit by this CME – that will glance off of our northern zones and then, somehow, strike the red planet. What if Mars slowing down in the first place triggered the sunspot into sending out a solar flare which then spews out a CME zapping Mars? You would then have a full circuit of electro-magnetic vibratory energy – starting from a planet, going to the Sun (the heart, center and spiritual light-source of our existence), and then returning back to the planet, in this case Mars. This would help us realize that the planets are in some kind of communication with the Sun and vice versa – something akin to the electrical wiring within a house or the way a power station would energize a town composed of a series of neighborhoods.

Are Other Planets in Addition to Earth Heating Up?

A report a while ago suggested that just as the temperature on Earth is rising (Global Warming) – which could produce dire effects to our eco-system and eventually flood highly populated coastal cities around the world – the temperature on other planets in the solar system is also rising. If this is true, then Global Warming may have more to do with unknown forces at work in the core of the Sun and the planets than anything terrible humans are doing on terra firma by the way of increasing carbon dioxide gas and smog-causing pollutants in our atmosphere. Of course, this doesn’t mean we should continue to use air conditioning to the maximum degree and follow China’s horrible example of continuing to burn coal to energize and electrify tens of thousands of unregulated factories and overcrowded buildings

Many doomsayers concerning the end-shift-rebirth of the 5,125-year Mayan Long Count think that fiery forces – whether from extreme solar flares or a major, direct hit by a CME – could fry our satellites, strike our high-tech grid and world wide web, and destroy the Earth’s protective electro-magnetic shield, also known as the Van Allen Belt. And we are about to have 7 rare, Uranus-Pluto squares in the heavens from June 2012 to March 2015 – setting up the potential for shocking (Uranus) acts of mass destruction (Pluto) on Earth if the Uranus-Pluto 90-degree encounters are way on the negative side of the astro-psychic energy-spectrum.

Waiting for Another September 1, 1859 Event…

When solar researchers look back at the most powerful flares and CMEs of the past, they all point to the most massive one in the last 500+ years. It occurred on September 1, 1859 and was recorded by a solar astronomer – Richard Carrington – who even drew a picture of what the sunspot looked like, where it occurred on the surface of the Sun, and what time it happened. On that day, the Sun was in an exact trine to Pluto in earth signs, the Moon was almost exactly opposite Pluto (in the fixed, power signs of Scorpio and Taurus) while the Sun had just completed a square to shock-producing and radical-change agent Uranus during the previous 24 hours. From having seen a program on this event – on the History Channel – it is said that if an X-class Solar Flare (the most powerful class) of the 1859 kind, which sparked and ignited telegraph lines and created spectacular auroras at unusual places on Earth, were to occur now, humanity might be blasted back into the stone age because our complete system of satellites, high-tech grid, GPS signals as well as earth-based power stations would be destroyed

Various films on this theme have already appeared many times on the Syfy Channel, and the odds are great that you can catch a couple of them a week by tuning into that station. For more intelligent information, it is wise to access www.earthchangesmedia.com as well as www.noaa.com (or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website, run by the USA Department of Commerce). Unfortunately, if we were to be hit by one of those mega-flares, the web would be gone – possibly forever or a very long time – and our ability to survive as a species would be at stake

From the eternal optimist perspective, it is better to keep believing that just as we have a world wide web now composed of colossal amounts of information and sources of knowledge and wisdom, there is a higher level of that happening on etheric-astral-mental and more subtler realms – with the realization that we have always been guided by invisible presences protecting the Earth, whether we call them mentors, spirit-guides, saints, devas, angels, archangels, gods and goddesses.

In fact, what if the positive, life-affirming side of the internet-www-global grid is actually the externalization of that “Higher Web” of intelligences and divinities that have our best interests at heart? That Goodness wants to protect humanity even if the nefarious forces of Evil – also rampant – are trying to crush the evolutionary advance of humanity.

Note: On July 4, an X-Class Solar Flare and companion CME was reported – with the CME then striking the Earth during the next 24 hours. It wasn’t the most powerful X-Class Solar Flare of this year, but it was another reminder of the prominence of the high Sunspot Cycle we are entering into over the next 2 years. More notes on July 10 as we prepare to launch our redesign come from the website called spaceweather.com : The enormous sunspot known as AR1520 is now turning in the direction of the Earth...The magnetic field of this enormous sunspot is tangled, and harbors energy for strong solar flares. NOAA forecasters estimate an 80% chance of M-flares and a 25% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours. Solar flare alerts: text, voice. MANY CMEs: During the late hours of July 8th, a series of rapid-fire explosions on the sun propelled three coronal mass ejections (CMEs) into space. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory recorded their exit:
