Look Up! ... Solar Bathing, Stellar Navigating

Hello Sky Watchers,
November 22, 4:32am PST marked the start of a new lunar cycle. This cycle peaks with the December 6 Full Moon and ends December 21, 5:36pm PST, just 2 1/2 hours after the winter solstice begins.

Be sure to do some solar bathing during the beginning of December and there's plenty of stellar navigating for any evening of your choice during this lunar cycle!

The folks at SouledOut.org invite you to celebrate the current lunar month by participating in the Sagittarius Festival Global Meditation.

Lunar Theme: Metamorphosis "Our November 22, 2014 New Moon lies in the midst of a stellium of planets ... This area of the heavens is about transmuting lower-self desires and patterns into a higher neurological resonance that results in self-mastery ... One of the primary events occurring in this lunar cycle is the sixth out of seven Uranus-Pluto geocentric squares [Revolution and Revelation] ... The Venus-planet cycles ... engage a metamorphic healing process, especially about judgments regarding wrong doings / blunders of the past, cultivating a new and clearer focus, dedication and commitment of an open heart, and allowing a greater level of nourishment to enter heart and to reciprocate from heart ... Venus and Pluto ... [are] impelling us to use the power of heart to steer our intent ..." Click the lunar theme link for more insights by Nick Fiorenza.

SDO Sees Sol and the New Moon

Nov. 22nd, the Moon passed in front of the sun off-center, producing a beautiful partial eclipse. No one on Earth saw it, because the lunar transit was visible only from Earth orbit. More than 22,000 miles above the planet's surface, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) snapped this picture.

Using a bank of 16-megapixel cameras, SDO observed the event at multiple extreme ultraviolet wavelengths. Scan the edge of the Moon in the 171 Å high-resolution image, shown [here] ...The little bumps and irregularities you see are lunar mountains backlit by solar plasma.

Beyond the novelty of observing an eclipse from space, these images have practical value to the SDO science team. The sharp edge of the lunar limb helps researchers measure the in-orbit characteristics of the telescope--e.g., how light diffracts around the telescope's optics and filter support grids. Once these are calibrated, it is possible to correct SDO data for instrumental effects and sharpen the images even more than before. spaceweather.com 11/23/14

Solar Highlights for This Lunar Cycle

November 30 through December 17 the Sun transits Ophiuchus, our 13th constellation, the heavenly medicine man. During this time solar rays are imbued with the healing energies and mastery of Ophiuchus. In addition Venus and Mercury join in the visit adding their evolutionary influences to the radiatory mix. It's a good time to feel and absorb the warm healing rays of our central luminary steeped in medicinal stellar and transformative planetary emanations. This type of sunbathing is bound to give you a new look! Click the link to learn more.

There Goes the Sun! For observers near 40° north latitude the earliest sunsets and shortest days of the year are in season. In San Francisco the earliest sunsets occur November 30 - December 12 all at 4:51pm. 6 shortest days, 9 hours and 33 minutes of daylight, take place between December 18-26 (2 of these days are 9 hours and 34 minutes). The latest sunrises in San Francisco occur January 1-13, 2015 at 7:25am. Check out the Sun Data for your area. This is caused by the tilt of Earth's axis and Earth's elliptic orbit. Apparent solar time (sundial time) is shifting with respect to mean solar time (clock time). Learn more about solar time.

Nov. 24-26, Monday-Wednesday, Dusk
The waxing Crescent Moon guides us to Mars.
This lunar phase brings up obstacles from the past that can impede
the new incoming energies and one's growth in consciousness.
The time to overcome these obstacles is now.
11/24-26 Dusk Map Look SW 1 hour after sunset.
End of November planets: Maps/Text

Nov. 28-29, Friday-Saturday, First Quarter Moon exact: 11/29 2:06am PST (10:06 UT).
This phase signals a balance between light and dark, moving toward the light.
During the First Quarter Moon ...
a continued awareness of that which was conceived at the New Moon is gained.
Ideally any obstacles impeding this awareness are overcome now.
This must happen if the energy released with the coming Full Moon is to be utilized.
Use binoculars Friday and Saturday nights to examine the Moon's terminator.
(the line separating the light side from the dark side)
Lunar craters, mountains and valleys are accentuated along this line of contrasting light.

Navigating with Orion
See Orion emerge above the eastern horizon about 8:00pm

Dec. 4-6, Thursday-Saturday Evening
Luna grows Full while transiting Taurus the Bull.
As the Moon grows in light, we grow in the Light of the Soul.
Waxing Gibbous Luna transits the sparkling Pleiades star cluster,
the Bull's shoulder, (12/4) and reddish Aldebaran the Bull's eye (12/5).
The Pleiades seed Aldebaran the star of enlightenment with universal light.
This waxing lunar phase offers illumination and growth,
only if the obstacles from the past are cleared away.
The Full Moon is exact 12/6 4:27am PST (12:27 UT) on the
southern horn of the Bull just east of Aldebaran.
Imagine light descending on Earth during these days.

this lunar cycle. Look for Saturn low in the SE before dawn after Dec. 7.
-- Mercury, in superior conjunction Dec. 8, reappears in the evening sky at Dec.'s end.

This lunar cycle is about revolution and revelation, metamorphosis and self-mastery. It's the time to heal judgments regarding past wrong doings. It's about allowing nourishing energies to enter the heart and using "the power of heart to steer our intent."

The clouds of unfocused and selfish thoughts are parted and we are further freed from illusion. We continue our Spiritual journey with clear vision and new insight.

We practice the right use of thought, putting an end to all tendencies to use thought destructively.

We restrain any selfish use of speech, resulting in the beautiful, newly found way of harmlessness ...

We experience ... fusion ... synthesis... at-one-ment. The greatest good for the whole is our goal.

- Excerpts From: Sagittarius Festival Global Meditation

The folks at SouledOut.org invite you to participate in the Sagittarius Festival Global Meditation. Join with others in meditation and strengthen the Light Grid of planet Earth.

Seek the truth,
it's not what you read online.
Invoke limitless possibilities,
explore the wild,
live life fully.
Seek understanding,
always learning,
choose wisely.
Breathe into your sacred life.
Consciousness is Perspective.

- Jacqueline Lasahn / Sagittarius
