A reader wrote me an e-mail today, asking about the meaning of the "huge coronal hole" that appeared a few days ago on our sun. Here's a photo of the coronal hole, from the Spaceweather.com website:
Here's what I replied to the question, "Does this mean anything?":
I do monitor the SpaceWeather.com website everyday -- so I know that coronal holes are fairly common. I'm also aware that they release solar winds that can reach Earth if the direction is lined up just right. Those solar winds affect Earth's electromagnetic field, so on subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) levels, they also work with our personal energy fields. On physical levels, strong solar winds can disrupt radio and satellite transmissions -- it is interesting to consider how we might each be affected individually at such times.
This particular coronal hole is very big, for sure -- and since the solar wind it created will reach us about the same time as the already electrifying Uranus-Jupiter alignment (on Tuesday, June 8), I think it will probably serve to reinforce the energies of change we will be working with over the next couple of days. It might be enough to make our hair stand up on end -- either literally or figuratively!
