Solar Tsunami to Hit the Earth…and Other News

Ok, so late breaking fearmongering non-event warning of the day:

Nasa scientists braced for ‘solar tsunami’ to hit earth

The earth could be hit by a wave of violent space weather as early as Tuesday after a massive explosion of the sun, scientists have warned.

The solar fireworks at the weekend were recorded by several satellites, including Nasa’s new Solar Dynamics Observatory which watched its shock wave rippling outwards.

A Nasa spokesman was unavailable for comment.

“This means we have a very good chance of seeing major and prolonged effects, such as the northern lights at low latitudes.”

Astronomers from all over the world witnessed the huge flare above a giant sunspot the size of the Earth, which they linked to an even larger eruption across the surface of Sun.

The explosion was aimed directly towards Earth, which then sent a “solar tsunami” racing 93 million miles across space.

Images from the SDO hint at a shock wave travelling from the flare into space, the New Scientist reported.

Experts said the wave of supercharged gas will likely reach the Earth on Tuesday, when it will buffet the natural magnetic shield protecting Earth.

It is likely to spark spectacular displays of the aurora or northern and southern lights.

Scientists have warned that a really big solar eruption could destroy satellites and wreck power and communications grids around the globe if it happened today.

Nasa recently warned that Britain could face widespread power blackouts and be left without critical communication signals for long periods of time, after the earth is hit by a once-in-a-generation “space storm”.

The Daily Telegraph disclosed in June that senior space agency scientists believed the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013.

It remains unclear, however, how much damage this latest eruption will cause the world’s communication tools.

Dr Lucie Green, of the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, Surrey, followed the flare-ups using Japan’s orbiting Hinode telescope.

“What wonderful fireworks the Sun has been producing,” the UK solar expert said.

“This was a very rare event – not one, but two almost simultaneous eruptions from different locations on the sun were launched toward the Earth.

“These eruptions occur when immense magnetic structures in the solar atmosphere lose their stability and can no longer be held down by the Sun’s huge gravitational pull. Just like a coiled spring suddenly being released, they erupt into space.”

She added: “It looks like the first eruption was so large that it changed the magnetic fields throughout half the Sun’s visible atmosphere and provided the right conditions for the second eruption.

“Both eruptions could be Earth-directed but may be travelling at different speeds.

I bet you $20 nothing happens. We’ve had all of these dire predictions of all of this frenetic energy and great changes coming and all this because of the Cardinal Transits but its been a wash. Just frustration and the sense that something has to happen but then, nothing. Like smelling smoke but not feeling heat or finding fire…

At any rate, nothing has happened on the apartment front yet, at least to my knowledge. Hopefully, without me knowing it, the Universe is conspiring to shower me with great blessings and the house of my dreams in a few days.

Today’s Reading:

Card of the Day: The King of Wands

Past: The Wheel of Fortune –

The Wheel of Fortune indicates that the second half of the soul’s journey has begun. After exploring the realm of inner dreams and visions, The Hermit enabled the unconscious to come to light. The efforts of the Hermit completed the soul’s first half of the journey; individuation of self and the establishment of ones position in society. Yet, the Hermit now understands that he is not a slave to his position to society. It’s a choice that enables him to move within society’s constructs or well outside of them.

The Wheel of Fortune represents the unifying aspects of the psyche; the unconscious and conscious have converged. The Wheel of Fortune is the mandala which represents a spiritual wholeness and inner stability. In a tarot reading, the appearance of The Wheel of Fortune indicates that a major part of the journey has been reached. The individual is free from the oppressions of society. He knows his true self. He has walked through the darker parts of himself and he now is able to unite with his destiny.

The correlating number to The Wheel of Fortune is ten. Ten is the first of the numbers that has double digits. It symbolizes a new beginning and the completion of a life stage. Ten is considered to be a perfect number; therefore it represents perfection, harmony, and a new beginning. Its association to the Wheel of Fortune signifies the wheels ever changing movement. The new road is presented to the individual. He is invited to either jump on the path to his destiny or choose to sit aside. The center of the Wheel of Fortune represents the universe. The spokes depict the channels that lead to Self.

The Wheel of Fortunes conveys a peace of mind, the relinquishing of guilt, and the substructure of universal order. In a tarot reading, the Wheel of Fortune imparts the principles of change. Its tarot card meanings refer to the fact that nothing in this world is constant. There is always the element of uncertainty and nothing can be controlled indefinitely. The only thing that is certain is change. The Wheel of Fortune reminds us that we must learn to have acceptance and understand that all things must move forward if we are to reach enlightenment.

The negative aspect of the Wheel of Fortune represents the individual who can not see the bigger picture of his journey. He remains enclosed in his own interpretation of fate. He is not unable to learn from his mistakes nor is he capable of seeing the clues that encourage him to take a different path. He remains forever tied to what he believes is his destiny. Thus, he misses important opportunities that may bring new directions.
