SPACEWEATHER.COM NEWS: MAY 17, 2023
SOMETHING FLARE-Y THIS WAY COMES: A new and apparently large sunspot is emerging over the sun’s southeastern limb, right here. This could be the same sunspot that produced a near-X-flare on May 16th. The event, decribed below, could herald a period of renewed solar activity as the sunspot turns toward Earth.
PARTIALLY ECLIPSED X-FLARE: Yesterday, May 16th, Earth-orbiting satellites detected an M9.6-class solar flare from a sunspot hiding behind the sun’s southeastern limb. It was only percentage points away from being an X-flare. In fact, it probably was an X-flare partially eclipsed by the edge of the sun.
Although the underlying sunspot was hidden from view, it nevertheless managed to touch Earth. Radiation ionized the top of our planet’s atmosphere, causing a deep shortwave radio blackout over North America: map.
“I knew something significant was happening on the sun today when all the normal radio stations I monitor suddenly faded,” reports amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft of New Mexico. His shortwave radio telescope recorded the broadband event:
Horizontal lines in this dynamic spectrum are terrestrial radio stations. All of them sharply faded immediately after the flare. Loss of signal lasted 10 minutes at the top of the band (27 MHz) and more than 20 min at the bottom (16 MHz). This is typical of solar radio blackouts– the lowest frequencies are hit hardest.
The source of this explosion may be the same farside sunspot we discussed on May 12th. If so, it could emerge over the eastern limb later today, with solar rotation turning it almost directly toward Earth this weekend. Solar flare alerts: SMS Text.

7 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU, MayanMajix.com
Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
A GOOD DAY TO: Count your lessons as blessings and your enemies as angels.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus. Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground. (Cauac is a source energy of Flint/ETZNAB.)
