U.S. Nuclear Facilities Threatened by Flood and Fire
by Erik Hayden
This morning, two separate United States nuclear facilities are threatened by fire and flood. In New Mexico, the Los Alamos National Laboratory (i.e. the “nation’s nuclear weapons laboratory” according to Reuters), has been evacuated due to a “fast-moving” wildfire. In Nebraska, rising floodwaters have breached a protective berm surrounding the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant and the head of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is headed to the facility.
This week will bring a lot of emotion on all levels. Much will be happening, and there will be ups and downs in everything. It is important, therefore not to react hastily or especially not to overreact as things can shift and change in no time, and what may have been appropriate at one moment is no longer so a few minutes later. Nonetheless, there will be shifts and changes in relationships. These can be somewhat traumatic. You will find that words meant to comfort have the opposite effect. Stay centered and grounded. Take your time in alll that you do, and listen to your intuition. Also, with the shifting and churning of dimensions, the veils become thinner and thinner. You may be startled by things that shift into your view and then disappear. This is the way of the current energies. It is a good time just to be the observer. ANd the listener for Freudian slips will become more and more common. It is important that you be able to discern what is real from what just seems to be so. Continue reading →
Just one lunation after the previous one, the third solar eclipse of the year takes place at the Moon’s descending node in western Gemini. This Southern Hemisphere event is visible from a D-shaped region in the Antarctic Ocean south of Africa (Figure 4). Such a remote and isolated path means that it may very well turn out to be the solar eclipse that nobody sees. At greatest eclipse (08:38:23 UT), the magnitude is just 0.097.

(TheWeatherSpace.com) — A heatwave is building out in the Southwestern part of the country and this will be followed by the start of the monsoonal moisture chances.
It is the beginning of Summer and with that comes a High Heat Warning issued at the Southern California Weather Authority. A ridge of high pressure will be parked overhead for the better part of this week.
Earthquake / Eruption summary : During the late afternoon and evening of June 12 2011, a series of moderate earthquakes struck the Afambo, Eritrea area. The moderate earthquakes were followed by 2 strong 5.7 earthquakes. Based on the earthquake pattern and the locations of the epicenter, volcano activity seemed imminent.
There are many things that will be coming to the surface this week, and in all areas. Much has been hidden, hinted at, and/or redirected. The many facades around these things will come tumbling down. This can lead to disruption, emotions, reactions, and re-evaluations. Many of these are way overdue. This is week when the energies will attempt to bring what is happening on the Earth into sync with the changes that are going on in the Universe. There is much resistance to this, and you will see this all around you. People that you know will step out of their usual patterns in an attempt to convince themselves and others that things are not changing, that things are staying the same, that there is no need to look at the world from a new perspective. When they cannot convince themselves of this, the emotions will follow, and oftentimes, the blame. People do not like to admit they are wrong, and they will, therefore, look outside themselves for someone to pin it on. Unfortunately there are mirrors everywhere, and they tell us what it is that we are unwilling to see for ourselves. This will not be an easy week, however if you are alert to the energies and the possibilities, you will find, with time, that this week was crucial for you in being able to move forward in your own power and to find the success that you know is yours. This week is characterized by clarity. This is in all areas. That means that you may just have to confront your own hidden truths and secrets. Stay centered, stay grounded, and you will find this one of the best weeks of your life. Continue reading →
Snow falls in the desert of Namibia, Africa this week

TheWeatherSpace.com) — I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it, snow has fallen in the African Desert of Namibia.
While snow in Namibia is not unheard of, it is a rare event. It snows on average in Namibia every 10 years.
It appears that the air mass over Central Namibia was cold enough to put the temperatures into the 30s. This combined with the drier low levels of the desert can cause snow to fall to the desert floor.
Here in the Valley, the smoke can get very heavy from the fires in Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. It is frightening to consider the number of fires, the extent of the fires, and the unprecedented lack of moisture.
I think we are discovering more and more that natural disasters are everyone’s business. The Earth keeps reacting on all levels and in all areas. All elements are affected. There is no longer time to be blind to this. It is everyone’s business. A little thing as a thought of gratitude or love or compassion to the Earth can make a huge difference. Gaia does not need our money. She needs our love and respect.
