CRYOVOLCANIC COMET OCCULTATION: What are the odds? For the second time in little more than a week, cryovolcanic Comet 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann is about to occult a star (13th magnitude), giving astronomers an opportunity to trace the shape of the comet, which may be festooned with ice volcanoes. The shadow track on Dec. 27th cuts across many populated areas in western USA: Spaceweather.com 12/23/2022
“This event may prove to be the best this decade, so observers please do try and cover it,” urges Dr. Richard Miles of the British Astronomical Association, a leading researcher of Comet 29P. The occultation occurs at approximately 12:20 UT or 4:20 am PST.
“A video record, preferably with absolute timing, is required,” he adds. “Frame exposure times of 0.25 sec or shorter are recommended. The current weather forecast suggests that the north-western half of the track will be plagued by cloud. Most of New Mexico and Texas look to have largely clear skies early on the Tuesday morning.”

5 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther Saho’ni)
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Symbol – comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, magicians. The early-morning Leo constellation Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardians of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Shapeshifters, manipulators of manifestations. Unlimited imaginations, visualizations, spellbinding speakers.
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength of character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.
Totem-Jaguar: Guardian of the portals to other dimensions, shamanic abilities will open. Multi-dimensional magic. Healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth. Abuse would be using this power for control or negative purposes. Must find a powerful balance.
