As of this writing, the Sun has not released an X-flare. What did happen was that the interplanetary magnetic field near Earth dipped, opening a crack in the magnetosphere of the planet and raining down solar particles on us. The crack is still open, bathing us in cosmic energy.
But Sunday's energy brings circumstances that may feel like we are braving a storm. It is harsher energy that can produce discomfort. We tend to see the limits of people, places, and things. It can get emotionally stormy. The key to this is to not personalize it too much. Think of yourself as a wise old owl safely situated in a tree and out of the storms. From this place and this perspective, there is confidence - confidence in hope for the future.
Even though we are safely stowed in a tree, so to speak, this doesn't mean we cut off our emotions or disengage from our lives. It's a mental and spiritual perspective. With this, we don't need to pretend to be stronger than we are. Remember that this month energetically offers us a red cross nurse. If you need assistance, have you asked the Mahavidyas, the Wisdom Goddesses, who are on duty this month? If not, why not?
While plowing through the energy today, maintain inner poise. This is the stance of the spiritual warrior.
