Friday, June 13th brought a lot of strange energy. Not only were four planets in retrograde (Mercury, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto), but we had a powerful full moon and we were hit with the CMEs (coronal mass ejections) from three massive solar flares. All of this activity forces us to explore the deep, unconscious mysteries of our inner selves, whether we want to or not.
If you were (and probably still are) feeling irritable, confused, angry, short-tempered, self-pitying or unable to get out of obsessive behavior, welcome to the energy this Friday the 13th kicked off. And be aware everyone is experiencing it, including our pets. If your dog or cat is extra demanding, unsettled or seeming to push your buttons, now you know why.
With the strength of recent sun spot and solar flare activity, scientists are reviewing their reports of the beginning of theSolar Maximum, or excessive cyclical solar activity, they thought began two years ago. It was supposed to come to an end last year. But, despite predictions of how intense and disruptive this cycle was supposed to be, it has been disappointing. Scientists were resigned that the mild activity of the last two years was it. Until these past few weeks.
Now, they’re saying perhaps the true SolarMaximum is just now starting and we should anticipate strong, interrupting solar activity at least through the end of this year and going into the beginning of 2015. Since this affects us on many levels, I thought I’d reprint partof a newsletter I sent out two years ago about what this means.
From July, 2012:
In our physical world, this Solar Maximum will, at the least, disrupt cell and internet reception (which is experienced more acutely during a Mercury retrograde). Ham radio operators are reporting shortwave solar radio bursts roaring from their loudspeakers coming from a “behemoth” of a sunspot 10 times wider than Earth that is crackling with solarflares. At the most, it can fry anything electronic which, based on the world we live in, is almost everything we rely on.
I went to get gas a couple of weeks ago. The computers at the station were down and they didn’t know how to pump gas without their computers. What happens if computers aren’t working for days or weeks? Electronics control almost everything, including the flow of our utilities. What happens if a direct hit by a solar flare (as happened in 1958) takes out the big generators that give us power and water and gas? It can take months for them to be repaired or replaced. Will we know how to function in a case like that? Is any of us prepared?
The emotional and spiritual effects are just as devastating. This is how I’ve seen it working: When a solar flare bursts from a sun spot and throws out magnetic radiation, we feel it immediately. Sometimes, if the energy build up forming the sun spot is excessive, we feel the preview before there’s a release.
We, as electro-magnetic beings, are then thrown out of balance as if experiencing a temporary bi-polar condition. Instead of being affected by the chemical imbalance of the disease, we become magnetically imbalanced. The result is the same: severe emotions, depression, anger, mood swings, over-reactions on an extreme scale that can last for days.
Then, within two to three days from the actual bursting of the solar flare from the sun, the geo-magnetic storm brought by the CME physically reaches us and the imbalance and over-reactions skyrocket. People drive even crazier, are more short tempered, take out their problems on others…I’m sure we’ve all felt it. When CMEs happen day after day after day, the effects on us seem to go on forever.
If we are unaware what’s going on, unaware of a reason for emotional over-reaction, we think things are worse than they are and we turn it on ourselves, usually very harshly. We think we’re not handling things well, or people are extra mean or selfish and wonder “Why are they taking it out on me?” It’s a natural reaction but it adds to the already incredible stress.
Even though this is all a pain to deal with, it has a higher purpose. We need to be in as much balance as possible in our person power, our power within, as Earth and humankind make the Aquarian Age transition into a higher state of awareness and being. The solar activity forces us to see how out of balance we are and in what areas we need to work.
The hardest, most merciless lessons we haven’t learned so far are right in our faces and we can’t ignore them or put them off to later anymore. The Solar Maximum is just a tool for us to have to learn these lessons.
So even in this wave of imbalance, try to stay as balanced as possible. Try to be aware of over-reactions to things and avoid judging yourself and others. Then try to see what these reactions are mirroring within as they will show us an imbalance we’ve carried with us, probably most of our lives. These lessons can clear things from childhood and past lives, but they require us actually facing them in order to release them.
I’ve always felt if I know why something is happening I’m better able to deal with it. So even though this isn’t really a good news kind of missive, now you might know a little bit more of what’s going on and be able to handle it better. I hope so.
One last thing: hide if you have to. Avoid as many stressful situations and people as you can. Know this isn’t annoying just to be annoying. This is important work. Use the “Is this my anger?” tool to make sure you’re only dealing with your own lessons and not picking up someone else’s energy. Meditate, chant, pray, whatever helps you stay sane.
And know that because this is such intense work on self, everyone is more self-involved than ever. Some younger souls become severely and obnoxiously ego driven, more than usual. Others just become more inward-looking. However it manifests, this is not a time where relationships of any kind flourish. Miscommunication, misunderstanding and out-of-proportion reactions are the new normal. And you might as well throw sleeplessness into the mix, too.
To know when solar activity happens, go to www.spaceweather.com. They have a subscription service that notifies you when things are popping. It’s just another way to be prepared for knowing why yourself and others are behaving in over-emotional ways.
With love and gratitude…
