A Filament Leaps from the Sun

Video Credit & Copyright: Stéphane PoirierExplanation: Why, sometimes, does part of the Sun’s atmosphere leap into space? The reason lies in changing magnetic fields that thread through the Sun‘s surface. Regions of strong surface magnetism, known as active regions, are usually marked by dark sunspots. Active regions can channel charged gas along arching or sweeping magnetic fields — gas that sometimes falls backsometimes escapes, and sometimes not only escapes but impacts our Earth. The featured one-hour time-lapse video — taken with a small telescope in France — captured an eruptive filament that appeared to leap off the Sun late last month. The filament is huge: for comparison, the size of the Earth is shown on the upper left. Just after the filament lifted off, the Sun emitted a powerful X-class flare while the surface rumbled with a tremendous solar tsunami. A result was a cloud of charged particles that rushed into our Solar System but mostly missed our Earth — this time. However, enough solar plasma did impact our Earth’s magnetosphere to create a few faint auroras.

From Numerologist.com – Tuesday’s Angel

Archangel Chamuel is the resonant Angel of Tuesdays.

Known as the angel of love, peace and omniscient vision, she sees the connections between everything and everyone.

She is known for her gift of higher perspective, so if you are stuck in a situation you see no way out of, especially if it involves a relationship, she is your go-to Angel.

She is peaceful, reassuring and incredibly loving. One of her chief functions is assisting us to lead lives of peace and acceptance, especially within loving relationships through the practice of unconditional love.

Archangel Chamuel is often depicted with a heart, the symbol of love, which she uses to remind us of this underlying force of nature which connects us all.  She is here to teach you that with love as your guiding light, you’re capable of breaking through any difficulties, and her presence will help you to resolve any conflict you face.

Invoke her presence and she’ll remind you of your place of belonging – at the heart of your personal world.  She will re-connect you to those you love and bring peace and balance. Archangel Chamual can also be asked for help in reuniting you with people and things you have lost.

Archangel Chamuel resonates with the color pink, with the planet Venus and the number 9.

Magic: This is the time to honor the dead. Set up an altar, serve them cakes, and let them know they are not forgotten. If you wish to communicate with deceased friends and family, this is the best time of year. The veil thins the night of Samhain, making communication easy. Do NOT, however, entice spirits, disrespect them, or perform any other magic that is anything less than respectful. I repeat, don’t do it. Samhain is also a great time to practice divination in the form of runes, scrying, tarot, tea readings, etc. Reflect over the previous year and perform blessing spells to ring in the new year. Astral projection, lucid dreaming, and hedge riding are also much easier to perform on this night but remember to be safe. Banishing magic, especially those for bad habits, are especially strong on this night.

Please note this is not a complete list but a brief overview of symbols, colors, herbs, deities, and the like. If I have missed something that you feel should make the list, please feel free to contact me via the comments or through email.

The ancient Celtic celebration of Samhain (pronounced sow-in), celebrated on October 31st and November 1st, marks the end of our seasonal cycle on the Wheel of the Year. This is why it’s often referred to as the witch’s New Year. Seasonally speaking, Samhain is the third and final harvest of the season or the last rally to store and prepare for the coming Winter season.

This sacred celebration reaches much farther than harvests and is also a time when the veil between the physical and spirit world is at its thinnest. The Celtic people believed that spirits walked among them during this time, so Samhain is accepted as an ideal time to communicate and connect with the spirit realm. Here’s a fun drawing I created with ritual suggestions for Samhain. Keep scrolling to learn more about each one.

From Plentiful Earth – How to pronounce Samhain

Popularized by Wicca, Samhain is a celebration that occurs around the same time as Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve, and Day of the Dead — on or around October 31. This wonderful day is often celebrated as a time to commune with our ancestors and the passing spirits, as the veil between the worlds has become its thinnest. The festival of Samhain is easily most Witches’ favorite Sabbat of the year, a fact we can all agree on. However, it’s easy to strike up a war of the Witches when it comes to saying the word out loud!

We know first hand, as American Witches in the United States, how embarrassing it can be to read the ancient Gaelic word as “Sam-hayne” on paper when we’re learning and then try to say it in front of seasoned coven-mates! We’re here to save you some red cheeks and give you the confidence to talk about your favorite holiday out loud! The good news? There are 3 ways to pronounce this ancient Celtic, each from a different region of its birthplace!

All Signs

Every month, we have a New Moon, which is when the Sun and the Moon are lined up exactly in the same sign. It’s good to know about the New Moon because it’s the perfect time for beginnings and planting new seeds. This week, the New Moon peaks on Thursday, and is immediately followed by an electrifying zap from Uranus. Pow! (It will most strongly affect those born in the first week of May, Aug., Nov and Feb.) But for all of us, this is an opportunity for a fresh start and a chance to set new goals and make resolutions. So, heads up! Are you ready? I know I am. (Just today my partner and I were laughing about how competitive we are. I laughed more than he did, though.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For Aries, the New Moon this week takes place in the part of your chart that concerns how you share your wealth with others. This includes shared property, jointly-held items, shared debt (with banks and credit card companies), inheritances; plus, it includes shared responsibilities for others as well. A pretty big umbrella! The New Moon on Thursday is a great chance for you to think about how to reduce your debt and how to best handle your financial agreements with others, particularly partners. Something unusual might suddenly occur for you. Hopefully, a solution? Perhaps a better approach to something? Maybe something needs your attention? This is an unusual opportunity. Each New Moon is your chance to make new resolutions.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The New Moon this week is the only New Moon all year that is directly opposite your sign. This polarized position will give you an opportunity to see how you can improve your closest partnerships and relationships. (It will be strongest for those born April 27 – May 8.) Even though the New Moon that is opposite your sign occurs only once a year, this one is unusual because it will be energized by unpredictable Uranus. This means you might have a sudden idea about how you can improve your relationship? Or something sudden and unexpected might prompt you to see how to make a change? Be open and receptive to whatever might occur because it can benefit you. Where and how can you make a new beginning?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Something interesting and unexpected might jiggle your world this week, especially midweek when the New Moon occurs. As a result of whatever this is, you might suddenly decide you have to take a serious look at taking care of your health. You might get on self-help kick and want to turn over a new leaf. You want to do whatever will benefit you. Perhaps this same influence will cause you to look at your job, and the way you do your work? You might decide to work in a better way that is more efficient and productive? For some, this could be something unexpected that impacts a pet? Whatever happens, you will be resolved to make improvements in one of these areas this week. “Scout’s honour.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Unexpected challenges and surprises from unpredictable Uranus will occur midweek. (Parents take note: This is an accident-prone influence for your kids. Be extra vigilant and make sure your kids are safe. Be aware of potential hazards for toddlers.) Social plans might suddenly change this week. Something might be cancelled or alternatively, something new might blossom? Sports will hold surprises and potential accidents. On the upside, you might get a fun invitation or an opportunity in the entertainment world or the arts? Something unexpected might please you! Romance might surprise. This could mean love at first sight, an exciting new relationship, or instead it could be a sudden breakup. Who knows? It’s a crapshoot.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Expect a few curveballs to impact home and family this week. Something unexpected will surprise you or upset your home routine. This could relate to a parent or a family member. Someone might suddenly move out or move in. A domestic squabble might upset the family harmony. Increased chaos and activity are taking place at home now. Nevertheless, this week something unexpected will occur. It could also relate to real-estate deals suddenly changing, or surprise news about a family member. The upshot is that this week, you have a chance to make new beginnings and resolutions about your home and family. Ideas?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Heads up, dear Virgo because this week will hold some surprises for you. For starters, there’s a strong accident-prone influence present. Therefore, pay attention to everything you say and do. Slow down and take it easy. Be vigilant; be mindful. You can definitely expect to meet new faces and see new places because almost certainly, your daily routine will change. In fact, your everyday world will have surprising challenges, opportunities and detours. However, you have some clever, original ideas! You might have an unexpected chance to take a course or get further training. You might also have surprising news from a relative or neighbour. “He did whaat? They both did?”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Everyone is encountering some surprises this week. For your sign, the surprise could impact your salary, cash flow, earnings or something that you own. Therefore, be vigilant. For example, you might find money; you might lose money. Be smart and protect your belongings against theft, damage or loss. On the upside, you might get a financial windfall? (Admittedly, it could be the reverse.) This surprising influence might be mild — perhaps you will make an unusual purchase that delights you? You might get a different job or figure out a new way to make money. This is a fortunate time for you so whatever happens is nothing you can’t handle. Fingers crossed!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Expect a surprise this week because the Sun, the New Moon and fiery Mars are all in your sign, and midweek, this bundle of energy receives a powerful electric charge from Uranus. Something surprising or unusual will almost certainly happen. This could relate to a close relationship. Or instead, it might relate to you personally. It might mean a sudden change in your environment. One possibility is an unexpected accident. Therefore, be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Guard against rash actions and knee-jerk reactions. On the upside, this could be when you finally have the courage to make a break for your own personal freedom. “I’m outta here!”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It’s fortunate Venus is in your sign now because it makes you charming and diplomatic. (This is a wonderful cover in case you are personally bewildered about something. You’re the only one who will know.) Venus also promotes good times with friends; and it ranks pleasure above work. Meanwhile, a hidden, unexpected surprise will catch you off guard this week. Because it will take place in a hidden part of your chart, others might not know but you will. Caution against accident-prone behaviour. Think twice before you react to surprising news. Stay cool. (You always do.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Stay on your toes this week because you will encounter a surprise from a friend or a member of a group. You might be asked to leave a group. You might be asked to join a group. Whatever happens, it will introduce a change in your life and possibly, a change to your future goals. This could be major. On the other hand (you have different rings), it could be a minor tiff with a friend. People are a bit hotheaded now; and you might be in competition with someone? This could lead to an argument. Remember – you value your public reputation. Therefore, don’t do anything that you will regret later. Possibly, this relates to secret love affair? (Hmmm.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is not a typical week. Not by a longshot. At the very top of your chart, sits the Sun, the New Moon and fiery Mars. Then midweek, this handful of energy is challenged by your ruler wild, wacky Uranus. For some of you, this could mean that you will take a sudden stand and fight for your own independence. You might rebel against bosses, parents and authority figures. You might decide to strike out on your own? It could be as minor as an argument with a parent or a boss. It could be as major as changing your life direction? Fortunately, Venus will help you to be diplomatic with friends, who in turn, will be supportive to you. No one, more than you, values their friends.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Big changes are occurring; and the upshot of it all is that you have a thrilling sense of freedom. Oh yes, you’re out there flying your colours! This might bring a sudden opportunity to travel for some of you. It might also mean a chance to explore avenues in publishing, the media, the law, medicine or anything to do with higher education. This could also indicate a sudden split or quarrel about philosophical, political, racial or religious ideas. You might have the leading role in Gunfight at the OK Corral! (Wyatt Earp or Doc Holliday?) The good news is that Venus, at the top of your chart, guarantees warm support from authority figures in your life. Big changes are taking place – but you are protected.

From Ask Angels

Archangel Zadkiel or Archangel Sachiel

There are references which list Zadkiel and Sachiel as the same being… However, my experience is that they each have an individualized Divine I Am Core, so I’ll describe them both for you here.

Archangel Zadkiel “Righteousness of God” 

Zadkiel carries the flame of righteousness and forgiveness and will assist you in releasing any forgiveness held towards yourself or others so that you can remember the full truth of who you are. Forgiveness will assist you in releasing heavy emotions like fear and anger into the light to be transmuted back into love.  Archangel Zadkiel is happy to help you strengthen your connection with the Divine.

SH2-308: The Dolphin-Head Nebula

Image Credit & Copyright: Nik Szymanek

Explanation: Blown by fast winds from a hot, massive star, this cosmic bubble is huge. Cataloged as Sharpless 2-308 it lies some 5,000 light-years away toward the constellation of the Big Dog (Canis Major) and covers slightly more of the sky than a Full Moon. That corresponds to a diameter of 60 light-years at its estimated distance. The massive star that created the bubble, a Wolf-Rayet star, is the bright one near the center of the nebula. Wolf-Rayet stars have over 20 times the mass of the Sun and are thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova phase of massive star evolution. Fast winds from this Wolf-Rayet star create the bubble-shaped nebula as they sweep up slower moving material from an earlier phase of evolution. The windblown nebula has an age of about 70,000 years. Relatively faint emission captured by narrowband filters in the deep image is dominated by the glow of ionized oxygen atoms mapped to a blue hue. Presenting a mostly harmless outline, SH2-308 is also known as The Dolphin-head Nebula.
