On Friday, August 15, 2014, a magnetic filament on the Sun erupted and produced a coronal mass ejection (CME) at 2:00 pm EDT/6:00 pm UTC. reports the magnetic filament was "snaking down the middle of the solar disc...and split the Sun's atmosphere, hurling a CME toward Earth, and creating a 'canyon of fire.'"

This is interesting for many reasons, but what immediate echoes for wise owls who have been reading the Oracle Report since the New Moon in Leo on July 26 is this choice of words and the symbol for the energy of this entire lunar month - "rock formations towering over a deep canyon."

The Sun has been quite quiet since August 1, with a M1.5 solar flare and CME.  The timing of CMEs is highly informative.  For the most accurate read of the divine energetics that the Sun (Sabaoth to the Gnostics) wanted to empower, we look at the Sabian symbol of the position of the Moon at the time of the CME.  The Sun empowers all of the energetics the planets are disseminating.  The Moon was located at 2 Taurus with the corresponding symbol of "an electrical storm."  This symbol discusses energy that brings tensions and brings things to the point of breaking apart.  A force of nature takes over.  The air is charged to bring forth a deluge of cleansing.

It should be noted that at the time of the CME, the Moon was in tight conjunction with the Chiron Point, reinforcing a theme of deep healing.

To gain an even broader picture of the Sun's empowering intentions, we can look at the degrees of the Sun and the Earth at the time of the CME.  We do this because the Gnostic texts teach us that the Sun (Sabaoth), the Earth (Gaia Sophia), and the Moon (a portion of Gaia Sophia) are divinely allied in their efforts to ensure the proper conditions for the growth of humanity.  They are coordinated.

The Sun was located at the degree of "a bareback rider in a circus displays her dangerous skill."  This symbol speaks to defying gravity, taking risks, and masterful control.  The daredevil fools around with nature's forces.

The Earth was located at the degree of "a big bear sitting down waving all of its paws."  This signature is about going above and beyond normal expectations and about the development of skills.  The image implies gaining attention and also implies defying authority.  The symbol is a show of the force of nature.

In combination, the CME is producing a dramatic show of the forces of nature to bridge us over a chasm and masterfully empower deep healing.  The full impact of the energy is in effect through Monday, when the CME reaches Earth.

I believe this energy also is serving to disempower forces that stand against nature.

In addition to the CME wave of energy, we also have today's specific energetic conditions that prompt a need for endurance.  Patterns and synchronicities foreshadow the future and show what types of preparations (mental, physical, spiritual) that will be needed.  Keep in mind that today's energy has the tendency to highly distort all kinds of things.  It may be necessary to rise above something and take the high road.

Venus and Jupiter are on approach to exact conjunction overnight at 1:17 am EDT/5:17 am UTC.  The conjunction is visible under clear skies.  This combination of energies has us reaching for the sky.  We gain wisdom about the bigger picture of our lives and the world at large.  Connections are made and solutions are discovered.  The smallest details become evident.

All in all, it's a stellar Sunday!
