Astrological Overview: July 5 - 11, 2021

Aspects of Note this Week:
All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. (For Eastern Time, add 3 hours; For Greenwich Mean Time, add 7 hours.)
THE MAGNITUDE of the energies we are working with right now is "interesting," to say the least. Not only have we been managing the dramatic effects of the Mars-Saturn-Uranus T-square over this past week, but yesterday (July 3), a sunspot appeared quite suddenly and unleashed an X-class solar flare -- the first of that highest-level class since September 2017.
This solar flare was also unique because it created a phenomenon called a "magnetic crochet." Here's how SpaceWeather.com described the impact of yesterday's event:
"Radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth's atmosphere and caused currents to flow 60 to 100 km above Earth's surface. These currents, in turn, altered Earth's polar magnetic field. Unlike geomagnetic disturbances that arrive with CMEs days after a flare, a magnetic crochet occurs while the flare is in progress. They tend to occur during fast, impulsive flares like this one."
LIKE THE EARTH, our physical bodies have magnetic fields. In fact, scientists tell us that every organ and cell in our bodies has its own tiny biomagnetic field. Therefore, like our planet, we are also affected by solar flares, especially strong X-class flares such as the one that occurred on July 3. And, considering that a "magnetic crochet" can evidently alter the Earth's polar magnetic field, it is intriguing to contemplate how it might also affect us individually.
Perhaps you have been feeling the effects of all these cosmic energies. Sudden fatigue, unexplained anger or sadness, nervous stomach, a fluttering feeling in the thymus area ... these are just a few of the possible symptoms...
