7/29 Solar Flare

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

fr/spaceweather.com

SOLAR FLARE: Sunspot AR1261 unleashed a brief but powerful solar flare on July 30th at 0209 UT. Registering M9 on the Richter Scale of Flares, the blast almost crossed the threshold into X-territory (X-class flares are the most powerful kind). NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the flare’s extreme ultraviolet flash:

Because of its brevity, the eruption did not hurl a substantial cloud of material toward Earth. No CME is visible in SOHO coronagraphs. The eruption was not geoeffective, although future eruptions could be as the active region continues to turn toward Earth.

Brain Waves to Brake your Car

Mind Over Matter: Braking Your Car With Brain Waves

July 29, 2011

It’s the future. You’re racing down the highway when, all of a sudden, the driver ahead of you slows down. You know you need to hit the brakes to avoid an accident, but your foot can’t move as fast as your brain. You’re about to rear-end the guy, except. …

… except that your car has read your mind. It picks up your brain wavesand automatically slows down. Accident averted.

This is not fantasy. Researchers in Germany have run an experiment with drivers in a car simulator, and they report in the current issue of the Journal of Neural Engineering that they were able to identify brain waves that corresponded to a driver’s wish to press the brake pedal. They tried the experiment with 18 test subjects, each of whom wore a cap wired with EEG sensors. If the drivers wanted to slam on the brakes, the car did it a crucial fraction of a second more quickly than they could.

“Waiting for the driver’s response can lead to a slow response in emergency situations,” wrote Stefan Haufe of the Berlin Institute of Technology. “Therefore, in order to obtain a faster confirmation, our study suggests that it is feasible to detect a driver’s intention to brake, which naturally precedes any observable actions.”

On average, in the study, brain waves told the car to hit the brakes 130 milliseconds faster than the driver’s foot did.

July 30 New Moon

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Site Last Updated July 30, 2011: So here we are the New Moon in child-like and risk taking Leo (exact @ 11:40 AM PDT or 2:40 PM EDT).
Barbara Hand Clow alerts us to the deeper activation that is happening with this lunation
as Night 5 of the Unity Wave is kicked off in spectacluar fashion.

Leo New Moon: July 30, 2011
The New Moon in Leo has arrived, and with it comes our moment to awaken courage in our hearts and stoke the fires of unconditional love. This New Moon is the top of a Yod  that activates and deepens the powers of the sextile between Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune/Chiron in Pisces. Yods are great directors of our energy, so this year’s Leo phase is full of fire and creativity. Venus in 3 Leo is moving toward the Sun, so the goddess inspires the flames of wisdom. Also, the New Moon conjuncts the lunar North Node in the USA’s founding chart (1776), so this heart opening reveals deep implications for Americans. Many now realize that time acceleration is a real influence; things are going so fast that most people can’t remember what happened last week. Well, this New Moon is the hot match that ignites the voracious field of constant change.
Day Five opens July 31, one day after this New Moon, when the new world we’re creating will be in its budding phase. Day Five of the National was 40-434 AD, when Roman Christianity was adopted in the West. Therefore, radical shifts in Christianity are very likely in August, such as the exposure of Josef Ratzinger’s lack of concern about child abuse in the Church. [See The Pope’s War by Matthew Fox.] Day Five is when the new creations become visible, so this Leo lunation may be the most influential one during the Universal Underworld. Let’s also note that Night Five opens August 18, a few days after the August 13 Full Moon in Aquarius, during this lunation cycle. Night Five is when we see the greatest destruction of the old systems that have to go, and the Aquarius Full Moon is equipped to do so. It forms a mutable grand square with Mars in 7 Cancer closely opposing Pluto in 5 Capricorn; and both are squared by Uranus in 4 Aries opposing the asteroid Juno in 5 Libra. (Saturn in 13 Libra is a partial influence in this grand square as well.) Events triggered by this potent configuration will force the world to see that the nuclear, financial, and Middle Eastern abuses are destroying our planet. Of course, famine and climate stress are also building. What do you expect when the planet is used for human disposal because supposedly God told our ancestors to use Earth for the chosen ones?

(TheWeatherSpace.com) — The El Hierro Volcano in the Canary Islands, Spam, has been swarming with over 700 earthquakes since yesterday.

Most of the quakes have been around Magnitude 2.0 however these are tight clusters between 9 and 16 km down with some being as shallow as 4 km.

The shape of the events show a magma chamber underneath. and magma may be filling the magma chamber below the volcano as a cause.

(TheWeatherSpace.com) — In what could be Tropical Storm or Hurricane Emily will impact Puerto Rico on Wednesday into Thursday.

The system is just south-southeast of the island as a tropical wave, growing into a tropical storm over the next 24 hours or so.

Shear in the area is low enough to promote rapid development as it moves through Puerto Rico and it is possible that it will be a Tropical Storm or even a Hurricane.

The new film “Cowboys and Aliens,” starring Harrison “Indiana Jones” Ford and Daniel “James Bond” Craig, opens today and is likely to snatch the top spot at the box office this weekend. The anachronistic sci-fi thriller tells the story of extraterrestrials who attack a small New Mexico town in search of — well, I won’t give away any spoilers.

Cowboys and aliens? Why not? Many people believe that alien contact is nothing new, and that Earth has been visited for millennia. Some, such as best-selling Swiss author Erich von Däniken, have suggested (based on flawed evidence and logic) that aliens built the pyramids in Egypt. Others believe that the giant drawings in the Nazca desert of Peru, in South America, were created by (or for) extraterrestrials in space ships. In fact, there’s good evidence that the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca Indians, probably as part of ceremonial rituals.

But what about sightings and reports of aliens in the Old West? Surprisingly, there actually are a few reports of extraterrestrial encounters in the 1800s.

July 31-August 6

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Crescendo.  That is the theme of this week.  You have time to get ready for the surprises that this week will bring.  You might have thought that this was going to be a quiet week, but it will turn out to be anything but, and that is on all levels including the personal and everything else.

Overall Color for the Week:    Dark Orange

Mystery, Memory, and Montage.  Three energies and a week in which to play them out.  Mystery entails all the things in your life that have gone unrealized, unfulfilled.  Memory  brings to the surface thoughts, friends, events, and images that meant so much, yet were never acted upon.  And montage is the bringing together of all these  themes into some new alignment.  There can be fear and there can be joy, but it will be challenging and rewarding if you are open to what is going on.  Look around and know that in every moment and in every challenge there is support if you will but choose to call for it, if you will but accept it.  This is a time for togetherness, and it is there for you, but you, also, must be there for it.

On a larger scale, there are messages and signs everywhere, in the air, in the water, in the earth, in the fire.  The animals, birds, fish, and all creatures of this Earth know that there is a change a’comin’.  What about the two-leggeds?  There will be weird and unaccountable activities undertaken by people, politicians, celebrities, and those of the underground.  Everything is being churned up, and many of those on top can find themselves all of a sudden having their worlds turned topsy-turvy.  The weather patterns of the week will show the same sort of extreme nature.  The hurricanes and typhoons will continue, and many will have uncharacteristic patterns of development as well as unusual paths.  There will be a number of volcanoes erupting this week, some tied to earthquake events.  Even as earthquakes begin to rumble in new areas and across a hidden trajectory.  The financial markets are going to have quite a ride this week. Crop yields will also make the news this week.  There is an energy crossing the Himalayas which will bring changes in the circular areas around them.  If you look to the skies, you can see odd things.  This is a week when one theme will be echoed many times over, so if something is said by one person, something occurs in one place, etc., you will find the same sorts of events being reported in many areas.  There is an ongoing issue with the Earth’s magnetics which will be more in he news as migratory patterns alter and planes find their radar systems to be skewed. An archaeological discovery reported this week can have large consequences for the accepted view of history.

Sunday, July 31:    Light Cobalt Blue

This month will definitely end with a bang, so be prepared for some surprising revelations and announcements today.  Take time to listen to your intuition, and you will realize that these are things you expected all along. There is a new person coming into your life, possibly through a book, article, or interview, who will cause you to question some of your unspoken assumptions and dreams.  While this can be somewhat upsetting, in retrospect, you will discover that you have learned quite a bit.

Crystal Energy:    Pink Danburite—-Resonates with the feminine shamanic vibration to bring balance, love, and compassion into one’s auric field, while connecting with the larger source energy. Resonates with the Heart and upper chakras.

Monday, August 1:    Indigo Blue

Secrets and surprises are the themes of this day.  There are some things that you had thought no one knew about, but you will be surprised to discover that certain people have been ‘in-the-know” about these things for quite some time, actually for some of them, it is what brings them to you. Emotions are out there, and many are misplaced, so if things turn emotional, try to go to your logical side first and analyze what it is that is really going on.  You might be surprised to find out that some of the things you have been reacting to are not truly your issues, but rather mirrors of other people and their judgments.  There will be an opportunity for you today to show what you truly know and this can alter the opinions of some of those out there who had pegged you as a different kind of person.

Crystal Energy:    Blue Barite—-The energy of this mineral brings calm, acceptance, and timelessness to difficult and painful states allowing them ot be experienced with ease.  Resonates with the Third Eye Chakra.

Tuesday, August 2:     Cloudy Green

Mercury goes Retrograde*:    Those new projects you have been working on will seem blocked and as if they are going nowhere.  This can lead to a sense of frustration and even some anger.  You feel as though you will not be able to make a deadline you have been given, however behind the scenes your efforts are paying off, and even though there are things that you are not sure about, do not be hesitant to ask the opinions of others.  Collaboration is one of the themes of these days, and by working with others, things can go more smoothly and you can cover more bases. (*Never underestimate the power — or the potential benevolence — of a retrograde Mercury.  As more and more is being understood about this planet, so close to the Sun, experiencing both the darkest and the lightest, we find that this little planet has a frequency that interacts in a special way with all that goes on in the Solar System.  This retrograde will definitely stir up the pot, but if you are alert to what that means and can read through all the vibrational muddle that will be coming our way, you will find that the purpose of this retrograde is to be a sort of doorway to the new energies that are flowing in and will begin to be felt as this retrograde ends on August 26.)

Crystal Energy:    Lazurite—-This beautiful blue stone celebrates simplicity, conflict resolution, and clarity. It assists in difficult conversations and potentially volatile situations.  Vibrates to the Third Eye Chakra.

Wednesday, August 3:    Light Apricot

Fun and frivolity are in the air.  You might not think so, because there are things that you are holding onto because …. Because you cannot let them go.  This is a day for seeing things from a new perspective, a different vantage point.  Some of the things that you have been angst-ing about are not all that ciritical, and in today’s energy you can see them for what they are.  This all involves the desire to reconsider, and that is not always th easiest thing to do, especially in relation to a recent emotional issue that you have not been able to resolve.  Know that what you are and WHO you are is always determined by you.  This is nto a good time to allow other people’s issues influence you.

Crystal Energy:    Lepidocrocite—-The energy of this stone allows one to see through options to what is real and right for the individual.  Moreover, once the decision has been made it assists one in realizing it.  Resonates with the Root Chakra.

Thursday, August 4:    Lavender Mist

What is it that you have been meaning to do?  Take out all your old To-Do Lists and see what it is that you have been meaning to do…. well, forever. Today is the day to get that done.  Finishing up with the old is always a great way to start on something new, and that is the energy of today.   It is a day for looking back, tying up lose ends, making plans, and moving forward.  You have allowed yourself to deal with old stuff for long enough.  Now is the time to make the new stuff real.  This is the big OK.  Perhaps you needed someone or something to let you know that the time was here.  Today is that time.

Crystal Energy:    Glory Blue Agate—-A great tension relaxer for those who tend to hold stress in their neck and shoulders.  Also assists one in speaking up for oneself.  Vibrates to the Third Eye Chakra.  .

Friday, August 5:    Lime Green

Get ready for some odd encounters, many of them with people you have known for some time but have not really been close to.  This is a day on which you want to make a good impression, but it will seem that wherever you go and whoever you run into actually screws up your chances.  Now, what is that telling you?  Time for a little soul searching and a little re-evaluating.  There are things that you felt were so important for so long, but the energy of the day can shuffle things in such a way that you are confused about just what is really important. This is a good time for doing things that you have always wanted to do, but felt held back by preconceptions, your own and those of others.

Crystal Energy:    Castle-tip Quartz—-A wonderful stone for healing, it removes layers of fear and guilt which are attached to physical issues, allowing one to see the source of those things and move them out.  Vibrates to the Crown Chakra, while harmonizing with all lower and higher chakras.

Saturday, August 6:    Dark Purple

The time has come for you to be acknowledged for all the wonderful things that you are and can do.  This is not a day to let others take the credit.  You have done that enough times.  You need to be recognised for yourself.  Open to that and see what comes your way.  This is a learning experience to allow you to accept all that you are.  There are challenges coming your way, and you have the resources, the heart and the knowledge to deal with them all. You will find experiences of synchronicity in the energy of the day.  Take some time to appreciate what is being said to you.  And for those who wish to belittle you, it is time to realize that they are not part of your world.

Crystal Energy:    Blue Desert Lapis—-The energy of this stone allows for dealing with issues of the past and past lives for healing and release.  It brings awareness of one’s connection with the Universe, while bringing focus and direction to sincere desire.  Vibrates to the Third Eye Chakra.

UFO on Ocean Floor?

UFO Found on Ocean Floor?

An ocean exploration team led by Swedish researcher Peter Lindberg has found what some are suggesting is a crashed flying saucer. Lindberg’s team, which has had success in the past recovering sunken ships and cargo, was using sonar to look for the century-old wreck of a ship that went down carrying several cases of a super-rare champagne. Instead, the team discovered what it claims is a mysterious round object that might (or might not) be extraterrestrial.

Lindberg explained to local media that his crew discovered, on the 300-foot-deep ocean floor between Finland and Sweden, “a large circle, about 60 feet in diameter. You see a lot of weird stuff in this job, but during my 18 years as a professional I have never seen anything like this. The shape is completely round.”

Adding to the mystery at the bottom of the Gulf of Bothnia, Lindberg said he saw evidence of scars or marks disturbing the environment nearby, suggesting the object somehow moved across the ocean floor to where his team found it.

August Perseids

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

August 12 and 13, 2011 Perseids
And when we say August 12 or 13, we mean the morning hours after midnight – not that night. Unfortunately, the full moon will spoil 2011′s Perseid display, obscuring all but the brighter meteors, during the shower’s actual peak. But you will see Perseids in the weeks leading up to the peak, too, if you have dark skies. These typically fast and bright meteors radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero. You don’t need to know Perseus to watch the shower because the meteors appear in all parts of the sky. The Perseids are considered by many people to be the year’s best shower, and often peak at 50 or more meteors per hour – in years when the moon is out of the sky. However, 2011 is not a great year for the Perseids, because the moon is full on the expected peak date. The Perseids tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn. These meteors are often bright and frequently leave persistent trains. Start watching for the Perseids in the first week of August. They will be building gradually to their peak. By the second week of August, the moon will begin interfering with the skies between midnight and dawn. On the mornings of August 12 and 13, you can still watch for some Perseid meteors to streak across this short summer night from midnight until dawn. Yet the full moon will interfere.
