Solar winds affecting Mercury

I read this article is on today:

SOLAR WIND BLASTS MERCURY: At a NASA teleconference yesterday, researchers working with data from the Messenger spacecraft offered new evidence that gusts of solar wind are penetrating Mercury's magnetic field and eroding material off the planet's surface. The spacecraft has actually flown through plumes of ionized sodium scoured from the surface and escaping from weak points in Mercury's magnetosphere.
So what does this have to do with us, you ask?

Astrologically, Mercury represents our logical, rational thinking process, and our human-level consciousness. Symbolically, the solar wind "eroding material" off Mercury's surface represents how our old, linear ways of thinking are being changed in major ways through the heightened energies that are now working with us. This "erosion" is just one step in the process of opening our rational minds to accept the grander scheme of things, and awakening the Higher Consciousness capacity within each of us.

It also reminds us that even when solar winds from CMEs are not directed at the Earth, we are still affected through their impact on the other planets in our solar system.

Amazing auroras

I may use this image in next week's Journal, but it's so amazing, I had to post it here today.

This is a photo from today's page, of auroras this week over Norway (photo by Fredrik Broms):

Incredible. It would have been amazing to see this in person!

Those all-important zzzzzzzzzzz's

With all the high-frequency solar flares unleashed this week, along with the powerful interaspects involving Uranus and Pluto, it's especially important to get extra sleep now. I've been trying for at least 8 hours, sometimes more, and even that doesn't seem like quite enough!

Our physical bodies definitely need the extra rest, and our mental/emotional bodies as well, as we work with these heightened energies now reaching the planet. And on soul-levels, we're doing all kinds of vital energy work while our human bodies are asleep.

Be gentle with yourself this week, and get those zzzzzzzz's when you can -- afternoon catnaps are good, too!

A comment on the aurora photo

I received this email from a reader after sending out this week's Journal:
Good morning Pam,
I wanted to comment on the photo of the Aurora Borealis from Finland. I see the real message in that tree top. It looks like the top of an old pine. Probably Hemlock. It struggled many years in a harsh environment as evidenced by the bare trunk. However, it exhibits new growth and a healthy state over the past few years. Our environment has gotten healthier also in recent years. The energies are shifting to a more livable state for Light Workers. Less obstructions, assist with our work, and more equitable justice. The world is becoming a better place to live and grow. Thank you for your part in it all.
I love this interpretation! And I will include the aurora photo again below -- it's worth seeing again, especially keeping this comment in mind.

Thank you!

Quincunx soup

What a week it's been, eh? A lot of jagged edges to work around with all these quincunx aspects going on, but a lot of nice things happening, too.

We're rather programmed, as a human species, to focus on the negative. For some reason, we get a lot of attention by telling our horror stories, sometimes more than what we get when we share a positive event. And it also seems like our minds often have a tendency to go to the lowest-vibrational path, so we get caught up in worry and anxiety or even fear.

If we can, even for just a moment, focus on something we are grateful for, this can be enough to distract the mind from its worry-road. Gratitude opens the heart, and that automatically short-circuits the negative emotions.

This is a good week to practice this technique, since the quincunx is meant to initiate an attitude adjustment that will allow a better outcome to occur. So the next time a jagged edge comes into view, try to shift that negative emotional energy through a shift in your focus, even if just for a moment.

Correction to this week's Journal

Yikes! Thanks to a watchful Virgo reader, I've realized that when I referenced 15 years for a transit of Neptune in this week's Journal, I was thinking about how long Neptune was in a sign, not how long it took for the planet to transit the zodiac.

Neptune actually takes about 165 years to go through the entire zodiac, about 15 years per sign.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks to the reader who caught the error.

Honoring our experience

Jennifer Hoffman's newsletter for this week includes this paragraph under "Uriel's Message," which I find very helpful at this time:

Honor each aspect of your life today, the lessons and teachers, situations and events, the fears and challenges because they are no more than energetic aspects of your chosen journey. And when you honor them you know them for what they are and do not empower them beyond their true purpose. They are tools for healing, learning, growth and transformation and when you have completed each step of this process you can release that aspect and allow a new one to take its place. As you honor your life, you honor yourself, your lessons, your path and your divinity. And from this place of honoring who you are and your creation, you allow abundant blessings to flow to you as you stand in the grace of your divinity and your power as a co-creator of your reality.

Have a good week, everyone!

Link to "Soul Transitions" blog

I just finished reading an excellent post from Nancy Ward about the current energies -- and am adding the link here for others who are interested:

Soul Transitions Vibe Report September 2011


This week's solar flares

There was a flurry of activity on the Sun this week -- two X-class solar flares (the highest designation) and some M-class (the middle designation) as well. This means that extra waves of solar energy were directed our way, and have been creating auroras for the past couples of days as they interact with the Earth's energy field.

Auroras are always a beautiful sight, and seeing them reminds us of the many ways we receive energy from our Sun -- not only through heat and light, but through invisible solar winds that only become visible when they reach Earth's atmosphere. We are all aware of the effect of the Sun's warmth and light on our well-being, but how many of us look beyond the beauty of the auroras to see and know the full impact of those solar winds?

There is still confusion and mystery surrounding the power outages in the southwest region of the U.S. that occurred on Thursday. The interesting thing is that these widespread outages occurred around the time the energy from the X- and M-class solar flares would have been reaching the Earth. We know that energy affects energy -- would it be inconceivable that the two are connected?

And what about the effects of these pulses of solar energy on each of us? We are also made of energy, and so are equally affected by the solar winds. We may not visibly glow in the same way the Earth's atmosphere glows, but the effect must be there nonetheless.

How have your emotions and mental state been these past few days? Have you noticed anything different since Wednesday/Thursday? Perhaps an exaggeration of issues? Or, maybe that high-vibrational energy has brought through new solutions for issues in your life?

Weight gains

I've heard complaints from a lot of people recently about having put on extra weight. And yes, while this tends to happen for many as we grow older, especially women as they go through menopause, there are also other reasons.

I find that when the energies are heightened, my body's response is to want to eat. This was abundantly clear to me yesterday, as I was sitting with two friends who are also channelers. We were throwing cards, and in response to one question, the woman who was throwing the cards suddenly stopped and said, wow, do you feel that? The other woman agreed that the energies around us had just shifted as some high-level guides had just stepped in.

And what was I aware of? A sudden urge to eat. My body's effort to stay grounded in the presence of such high frequencies.

Oh, well. At least, it's good to have confirmation of what I've already been sensing.
