Soulcards 2, Tarot of the Origins

Quickie read, intent: New Moon Prep for all.

First card you interpret, though I will pitch in that New Moons are always conjunct Sun.
Introverted, passive, reactive yin Moon meets expressive, outgoing yang Sun; traditionally seen as feminine and masculine, respectively.

Second card is Sacrifice.  A rite of passage which frees spirit from the material prison of the body in order to attain divine insight – a vision quest. 

:::::::::::
The sacrifice card made me think of the Lakota Sun Dance (traditionally held in the summer on a full moon).  It is a rite symbolizing life and rebirth (Pluto, New Moon is conjunct) held around the sacred cottonwood tree
(found inside the cross-section is a perfect five pointed star which represents the Great Spirit).   The (skin) piercing that takes place is the most sacred part of the sundance ceremony. It represents individual sacrifice for the good of the tribe, honoring Mother Earth and women who give life through childbirth.  source

Earlier this morning a 3 card draw of my own so perfectly spoke to my need for an abundance of angles rather than a cacophony of curves.
curves & angles 003I found it a pleasingly intense insight.

out

Hi all
Threw my back out.
Classic case of Sun square Neptune brain fart.
Also T. Jupiter in Gem (my 6th – two jobs) squares my Sun /Uranus in Virgo.

5th house, Leo and Sun rule the back
Jupiter is overdoing it – in my case carrying 75 + (?) lbs of second job in my duffle.

having a lie down.

The Doctor.

I loOove the Doctor.  
A quirky humanitarian (Aquarius) time traveler, saving life forms, indeed – entire worlds across time and space. (Sun rules not only heroes, but also the heart – and the Doc has two; Sagittarius rules long distance travel)

He is a brilliant combo of clever geek and cheeky party crasher – game for fun, yet deadly serious when any life form is threatened.  The Doctor is packing a wealth of experience and knowledge garnered across time and space over many lifetimes, many  regenerations.

His wits are his weapon.  He refuses all firearms – only using his sonic screwdriver, ‘which does not kill, wound or maim’, and the help of loyal friends travelling with him.

Interesting bit written into the plotlines over and over again – he sometimes goes a bit Gung Ho, suffers from a God Complex and needs a stiff shot of Saturn reality check from his mates to set him straight.  The brilliant, clever Doctor also needs the help of friends.

Good friends are ruled by Venus and Aquarius.
 Moon is in eccentric Aquarius, and soon, Venus will enter Sagittarius where she will meet up with Mercury, trine Uranus in Aries while she also squares Neptune and Chiron In Pisces.  So heads UP, I’m gonna talk about LoOove baby !

Venus needs friends.
The Doctor needs his mates to pull him back from over zealous, self-righteous anger and the edge of wrath.  He needs his friends to help him SEE, to help him widen his circle of perspective.

Yesterday in comments I mentioned the planetary heart grid.  I actually think there are multiples of grids connecting us through ALL our energetic points, ie: Vishudda (throat) chakras via speech/ mass comms, the Muladhara (root) chakras via collective instincts, etc… you get the idea.

The electromagnetics of the heart are connected into the electromagnetics of the earth, the electromagnetics of all life forms on the planet.  We feel the electromagnetic connection between all life, everywhere, through the beat of our hearts.
FYI: by everywhere, I mean across time, off planet and beyond . . .

When I asked ‘how wide is your circle ?’, I was aiming to get you (and me) – thinking.
AtomBodyTownStateNationContinentHemisphere
PlanetSolarSystemGalaxyUniverseMultiverse

Who or what do you let into your circle ?
Into your heart ?
This is the glyph for Sun.  Sun rules the heart, the number
ONE.
What I am saying is we are ALL IN THE SAME CIRCLE.

I am in yours, you are in mine.  We are in a soul contract, all earthkind HERE and NOW are working together to LEARN and GROW.  In fact, everything everywhere is in one big ginormous contract, to be honest.  We need each other – each and every one – we are in a global symbiotic relationship.  I almost wrote symbionic, which oddly enough, is a true mistake. Working together, we are better, stronger, faster.

CO – EXIST

Venus needs friends.

Venus needs friends to pull her back from the edge, to lift her up and give her love and compassion in order for her to gain equilibrium and peace of mind.  All life on this planet is both capable of loving and in need of love – those that are seemingly devoid of love need it the most, for how else will they heal if not through love ?
Hate does not heal – love heals.
We are all in the same circle.

::::::::::::::::::::::
Fire signs are the courageous leaders of the zodiac, people often turn to them for answers in troubled times.  Those with strong Jupiter or Sagittarius energy are also sought for answers, for they SEE farther, they are the sign of higher mind.

I got news for you, we don’t have all the answers either.  I asked the whole world for an answer one sunny afternoon a coon’s age ago . . .and got a plethora of answers, all from different eyes, but the Same Heart Place.

Ultimately there is only ONE answer.
Love.

Venus is personal love while Neptune is her higher octave, spiritual compassion.
High qi Neptune is the light bearer for the spiritual Sun, she will raise human perceptions to the divine.
She is a LOVE of LIFE, a HEALING HOPE for ALL to THRIVE in HARMONY.
She teaches the art of letting go . . . the art of going with the flow of each moment as it unfolds.  Birth, life, death and re-birth, it is the way.  Love transcends all these stages of energy, all times, all places . . . love transcends all boundaries.

::: Let us have love and more love; a love that melts all opposition, a love that conquers all foes, a love that sweeps away all barriers, a love that aboundeth in charity, a large-heartedness, tolerance, forgiveness, and noble striving, a love that triumphs over all obstacles :::

peace be with you

Focus on UNITY

ONE

If you are a life path 1, you are the root force of life, birthing new life from seed.  Number one is ruled by the Sun, symbolizing the life force, spirit, the center of self.

Ones are full of new ideas, challenges, demanding freedom of action and thought.  They want to be captain of their own ship, first across the finish line.  Ones have strong willpower, and operate on pure raw energy.  One is a positive, masculine, outgoing number of pioneers.

One = UNITY.  

When vibrating low, ones can be domineering, impatient, ruthless, selfish and too impulsive.  High qi ones are innovative and creative, they initiate and inspire others to succeed as well.  

Ones work best alone, they are very driven to succeed – they advance in life through sheer determination, competition can bring out the best (or worst) in them.  Ones hunt for new opportunities, they actively broaden their horizons – quick and decisive, they are ahead of the game.  Ones are focused on the finish line – eyes on the prize !

Solarific Science Explosion

seaspell

The sun’s magnetic poles rotate one full cycle over a 22 year time frame.
Moon feels, fluctuates, adapts, pretty shiny orb yadda yadda –

Hello

Sun fluctuates too respect.
Astrological Sun rules Leo, the heart.

Polar reversal takes place every 11 years during the sunspot, flares and solar storm maximum cycle.  Every 11 years, the magnetic poles of the sun point toward the equator.  When this happens, the electromagnetic flow at (sunspots drift toward) the equator becomes much stronger.  Below, the uniform blue (north) and yellow (south)regions near the poles reveal the orientation of the Sun’s underlying dipole magnetic field.   We are currently over three years into Cycle 24.

Why and how does this happen ?
The trailing polarity flux from bipolar active regions drifts toward the pole to produce polar fields. The polar reversal occurs when sufficient flux from a new cycle has reached the pole to neutralize the remnant flux of opposite polarity from the previous cycle.  Flux accumulates at the Sun’s poles until, at the height of solar maximum, the
magnetic poles change polarity and begin to grow in a new direction.
Extensive read here for science geeks.

Here is the Sun now  via SOHO – realtime.

More on Sun cycles below…

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

As if Moon conjunct Mars and now nearly Saturn wasn’t making us cranky enough, we are also under a proton warning. 

About 2,000 geomagnetic storms happen in every 11-year solar cycle – but proton events > 10 (+9) are more rare – they vary from 0 – 8 events per solar cycle.
Past proton events.

As of this post: Latest Alert: Jul 24 1857 UTC EXTENDED WARNING: Proton 10MeV Integral Flux above 10pfu expected 
The flux proton levels are still at a elevated level, just below the threshold
for the >=10MeV as a consequence of the CME eruption early in the morning of
July 23. This means that we are still geomagnetically connected with the
source/CME.  SIDE, Belgium

What you say ?
Proton ( positively charged – click here for why negative is good – sage smudging, and electrical thunderstorms via my very first post ) shock waves are associated with coronal mass ejections, though not necessarily (click for current graph – no magnetic storms) magnetic in nature. Interplanetary Shockspotter here.

10 MeV = Ten million electron volts yowsa

See why the protons are worth mentioning – we will feel it !… Maybe chalk it up to Uranus square Pluto or Moon conjunct Mars – Saturn.  Protons are uncomfortable, increased blood pressure, aggression, serotonin levels.  Nervous tension.  Girl cat was especially touchy this eve.  Plus severe drought across the US.
We are feeling it BIGTIME.

Here is a page for red alert warnings.
In addition you can always go to the sidebar to NOAA- Space Weather Now.

Here is a record of proton shocks from 2000 – 2005.

Here is the last two weeks – note the 10+ peaks.  Not as high as the 10 (+6) above, yet getting up there, nonetheless.  Click here for updates on the latest 48 hours of solar flare activity – basically like the chart below only fresh.

You are wondering what is a proton event exactly…? 
Me too.  (in depth Solar Proton Event wiki)

A solar proton event (or proton storm) occurs when protons emitted by the Sun become accelerated to very high energies either close to the Sun during a solar flare or in interplanetary space by the shocks associated with coronal mass ejections.

These high energy protons cause several effects. They can penetrate the Earth’s magnetic field and cause ionization in the ionosphere. They (reportedly – GMAstro) only enter the atmosphere near north pole, south pole, and South Atlantic magnetic anomaly.

What is South Atlantic magnetic anomaly ?  It is where the Earth’s magnetic field is the weakest. (see map below)  
Who knew ?  Not me – fascinating !

Ye Gads, I see an astrocartography analysis bender in my Sun conjunct Uranus Pluto future.  Plus, weak magnetics – do people weigh less and jump higher too… hmmm..? That could be an arthritic plus or minus, I suppose, plus maybe baseballs go farther…?… compasses spin wildly..?  the mind boggles…hmmm…ok – getting distracted…sorry

South Atlantic magnetic anomaly

Basically the effect is similar to auroral events, the difference being that electrons and not protons are involved. They can penetrate the Earth’s magnetic field and cause ionization in the ionosphere.  Energetic solar protons are also a significant radiation hazard to spacecraft and astronauts.  In addition they wack out radio signals, but not necessarily the electrical grids, which are only sensitive to fluctuations in the Earth’s magnetic field.

What is the ionosphere exactly ?

The ionosphere is comprised of portions of the mesosphere, thermosphere and exosphere, distinguished because it is ionized by solar radiation.   In the thermosphere, the atmosphere is so thin that free electronsokay, how Uranian is THAT ? – can exist for short periods of time before they are captured by a nearby positive ion. The number of these free electrons is sufficient to affect radio propagation.

The thermosphere is ionized and contains a plasma which is referred to as the ionosphere. In a plasma, the negative free electrons  and the positive ions  are attracted to each other by the electromagnetic force, but they are too energetic to stay fixed together in an electrically neutral molecule. 

Too energetic – fascinating – drawn together, but no neutrality. 
Fixed by attraction, yet not bound.  cool.

Can you see this in your natal chart oppositions ? 
I soOo do in mine.
Same wavelength, opposite viewpoints.

Toro Moon opp Scorp Neptuner.
Exalted vs. most highly aspected. 
sheesh.

Okay, so check this out:
During magnetically quiet days of solar maximum periods, the diurnal (daytime) ionosphere has both increased ionization and is thicker, compared to the nighttime for non – auroral latitudes.  The reverse is true during the solar minimum.

In high latitudes, nighttime thickness of the ionosphere is higher compared to the daytime for both solar phases.

The atmosphere adjusts for the incoming solar energy and storms.  neatO.

Interestingly peak ionosphere thickness is pre-sunrise and post sunset.
(source for above)

Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have a neutral charge, and electrons have a negative charge.

When these charges are out of balance, an atom becomes either positively or negatively charged.  The switch between one type of charge and the other allows electrons to flow from one atom to another. This flow of electrons, or a negative charge, is what we call electricity.

Exactly why the sunrise and sunset are so magickal – full of possibilities & electricity !

I’m not buying we don’t feel the protons through the atmosphere bit, obviously.  If proton storms change and whack out radiowaves, they change and whack out life forms on the planet surface too.  So step up the sage smudging, the candles and humidity in your environs just to safe – feels good anyway.

Gonna Virgo – out and go from macro to the micro bit: human electrical health: Click.

The most common human ion is Calcium.

Calcium is not only the fifth-most-abundant element by mass in the Earth’s crust, but it is also the fifth-most-abundant dissolved ion in seawater.
Wow.  Who knew ?  Not me !  Saturnrox, lol. 

Bone is the body’s major mineral storage site.  Calcium storage inside our cells accumulate ions, releases them when needed.  This calcium storage includes mitochondria.  Mitochondria are sometimes described as “cellular power plants” because they generate chemical energy.  Human mitochondrial DNA is inherited solely from the mother.
How is that for Moon conjunct Saturn ?

So now onto Solar cycles, why I started writing this novella in the first place.
Solar Maximum Sunspot Official Numbers NOAA

Sunspot peaks
Feb 1906 – 64.2
Aug 1917 – 105.4
April 1928 – 78.1

Nov 1968 – 110.6
Dec 1979 – 164.5
July 1989 – 158.5
March 2000 – 120.8

I have been wanting to study up on solar cycles for months and months – finally doing it.

I have Sun conjunct Uranus (magnetics) Pluto and I was thinking solar cycles would be evident in my life.

I got my answer.
My answer is yes.

In ’68 I was too young to remember, will have to ask my Mom what was going on.  I know around ’79 I got yanked into several years of moving and changing schools every few months or so.  (Toro Moon in 4 hates that, btw.)  Around ’89 second Sagittarian  relationship hit the skids – heartbreakingly stellar crash and burn, I didn’t eat or sleep for weeks.  You can see it coming, 2000 wasn’t any better, years of major stress induced illness.

I am curious if you notice anything unusual during solar maximums.
Please comment either way.  If you have made it this far you deserve a science geek medal and a heartfelt thank you for reading my self-indulgent solar magnetic energies post.
Thank you.

peace

eye heart art

I love this  !
Is there any art in the world half as fun as a little kids drawings ?
This one says it all for me !
Art + Music = blissed out !

Where are your Venus, Neptune, your Sun ?
Where is your house of Leo (sun rules) ?
All show your creativity in the natal chart.
Venus rules the sense of color.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Van Gogh was an Aries – Venus and Neptune in Pisces
note his vivid colors !

Rembrandt was a Cancer – Venus in Gemini, Neptune in Virgo
Chagall was a Cancer – Venus in Virgo, Neptune in Taurus
note sensitivity and tiny sketching.

Warhol was a Leo – Venus and Neptune in Leo
note 15 minutes of fame

Michelangelo was a Pisces – Venus in Aries, Neptune in Scorpio (click)
note the anatomy, the hidden, the brains in the Sistine Chapel *see link above

M.C. Escher was an 11th house Gemini – Neptune in Gemini, Venus in Cancer (click)
note dual perspectives

Picasso was a Scorpio – Venus in Libra, Neptune in 10th house Taurus stellium
Georgia O’Keeffe was a Scorpio – Venus in Libra, Neptune in Taurus (click) 
note focus (Picasso had so many periods, I am speaking primarily of his line drawings)

What does your art reveal about you..?

I am a 9th house Virgo – Venus conj Jupiter in Leo 8th square Neptune in Scorpio 11th
My early art involves sex, death, secrets, (still does) then it grew to include healing, energy work & metaphysics…

…how about you ?  …do tell…!
