A telescope on Earth has spotted huge storms brewing on the planet Uranus.
Scientists using the Keck Observatory in Hawaii have recently seen a number of storms develop on the planet. One image, taken on Aug. 5, shows a few bright spots in infrared photos taken of the planet. The bright bits show storms in the planet’s atmosphere. A second photo of Uranus, taken on Aug. 6, reveals more bright spots.
One very large storm seen by the telescope has particularly interested researchers analyzing the views of Uranus. The storm reaches into the high altitudes of the planet’s atmosphere, according to Keck representatives.
“We are always anxious to see that first image of the night of any planet or satellite, as we never know what it might have in store for us,” Imke de Pater, professor at Berkeley and team leader, said in a statement.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›

Scientists have found a trail of radio wave leading to an exomoon that could prove life exists beyond the Earth.
Exomoons, otherwise called extrasolar moons, are natural satellites that orbit an exoplanet and extrasolar body.
Scientists found a radio wave emission that led to an interaction between Jupiter’s magnetic field and Io, its moon.
Zdzislaw Musielak from the University of Texas said this is a new way of looking at things because they’ve found there are star systems that could be discovered with the use of radio waves.
Scientists believe that Enceladus, Saturn’s moon and Europa, Jupiter’s moon, have the ability to support life based from their potential for water and distance from the sun.
Existing scientific method don’t allow scientists to easily spot exomoons, Musielak said.
Scientists base their study on earlier theories about discovered exoplanets using radio waves.
They’ve focused on Io and its ionosphere, which is a charged upper atmosphere created by active volcanoes found on the moon.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
Spacemuffin: February 15 2012
This is the second part to the article that was titled ‘It’s only Castles Burning.’
We spoke of Mars and Saturn being retrograde at this time, and things will continue as discussed, but now we have to pull retrograde Mercury and retrograde Pluto into this puzzle. Pluto has been lurking quietly in the background in Capricorn since 2008 and has, in this sign of worldly power, been the silent pot simmering on the back burner, ready to destroy the established world orders. It represents changes that take time, but leaves nothing standing after it passes.
Mercury will go retrograde on March 14th – April 4th. Many people believe this to be a time when technology fails us, and communication systems break down, but this time it will not be so simple, as these are strange and unusual times. Not only will it be retrograde while Mars and Saturn are retrograde, but it will spend two full weeks in conjunction with the planet Uranus (who’s just minding his own business right now), and also forms a terrific square with that lurking Pluto.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
Posted by Denise on December 29, 2011 in Ascension Process
Gads what a year 2011 was! Mother of gads, what a month December 2011 has been!! The entire year was intensely compressed, difficult, and highly challenging for me personally as I know it was for most of you too. Then December 2011 was a compressed super version of the whole year! December has been extreme and an intense last-minute second chance to resolve and tidy up (mop up the heart wounds and blood and guts!) whatever you/me/each of us needs to before the final year (2012) of the twenty-five yearlong Alchemical Ascension Process kicks in.
There were many times throughout 2011 where I was repeatedly tested to learn certain things about myself, my Emotional Body, being emotionally reactionary (one’s bottom three chakras and matching ego consciousness, emotions and emotional reactions, fight or flight, ego survival etc.) and learn from it but continue inching my way out of them and increasingly into my High Heart and unity Consciousness.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun/Moon/Mercury/Venus/Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus/Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, along with some guidance and direction.

Jon Waldrup of Sense of Vision Astrology.
This is a two-part article elucidating my perspective through astrology into the revolutionary/transformational energies of our times. It is my opinion that many of us can still benefit from tuning deeply into all the cycles of nature, and that there are no more than a handful of people now alive who are living all the way into the future, consciously morphing biology.
This article introduces a way of thinking about time that will help remove patriarchal scar tissue and also goes deeply into the significant astrological events of the next week in order to emphasize that this is really the last week of the old way of being. This is the start of a 7 year initiation period, which will last until Saturn joins Pluto in Capricorn. I invite you to keep this so that you can revisit it, to support you through this initiation. I suspect it will be especially helpful next June.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
Philip Sedgwick Who dares to oppose the goddess of discord, Eris? In four days the Sun, the largest, most gravitationally significant (mathematically maybe the Moon, but let’s not get distracted) and certainly brightest object in the solar system does. Soon thereafter Saturn, the rule making, structure-seeking, discipline-demanding planet does. Saturn moves into opposition with Eris on October…

June New Moon Energy Scope
The energy with this new moon in Gemini will show two sides to each equation . so this will be a big witnessing of what is illusion and what is not. you will feel what is real and what is not when something by the eclipse is brought to light. So your being will have to keep your witness and awareness up to see all the symbols and information being presented to you. Up to this new moon it has been like the calm before the storm. It has been a time of inner reflection before deciding to make any deciding step forward and this time will have come as a blessing as the reflections you have made and decided to take are the right steps forward and you will be glad you thought them over carefully.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
Pluto turns retrograde @ 7°30′ Capricorn on April 9th, 2011 and remains retrograde until September 16th, 2011 when direct station occurs at 4°53′ Capricorn.
Transformational Pluto seeks to empower individual and societal entities through the eradication of that which is non-beneficial and incongruous to the future well-being of said entity. Pluto assists us in reinventing portions of our lives that we were previously unable, or unwilling, to adapt on our own so that we might move forward on our path unencumbered by previous obstacles or outworn patterns/programs.
Governmental structures and large business institutions are beholden to Capricorn and while Pluto transits this sign these area’s are being continually, if seemingly at times slowly, purified to the core. As of the current time that I am penning this post, we in the U.S.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›

New Moon is Tuesday, February 2 at 7:32 PM Mountain Time.
Commit to your own eccentricity. Commit to your own personal healing of whatever needs to be healed. You do not need to know how or even what. A total commitment is enough to get the quantum field mobilizing in that direction. There is a wonderful opportunity at this new moon to heal disappointments of the past. Make a list of all of your disappointed expectations and commit to their release and to your healing. Commit to staying out of fear. Commit to moving forward. Commit to what's important. Commit to yourself.
Note: This is also Chinese New Year Day, the Year of the Metal Rabbit. Rabbits are fertile, resourceful survivors. The metal aspect makes them aggressively so.
