Last Night’s Full Moon In Taurus: Did You Feel the Effects?

Last night’s full moon seems to have had quite an impact on many of us, including yours truly. I was pleasantly surprised by the response to my introduction for Cobra’s Update. Did you feel the effects of the full moon in your life? -LW

We are all aware of the powerful energies at play during a full moon. With its strong gravitational pull on the tides and therefore, our aqueous bodies, it is important to be mindful of our emotions before they run amok. Hint: Meditation is always a great resource for a quick attitude adjustment.

Tonight’s lunar exhibition holds court in the Zodiac sign, Taurus — the celestial take it or leave it bull. But while Taurus may be stubborn, she certainly knows of the pleasures in life, with Venus (the Goddess of Love) as ruler. So don’t be surprised if you feel a little extra tug on your heart strings this evening, just use it to your advantage. Invite sensuality into your relationship with open, loving arms.

Our love lives aside, a full moon in Taurus also coaxes us to shed the layers of our old selves, allowing the illumined authentic self to finally, truly emerge. Many of us have experienced the intensity of recent cosmic shifts, so it’s time to release the perpetual grip we still have on what no longer serves us, for good.

We’ve curated some of our favorite astrological forecasts from around the web, that reveal more insights about tonight’s full moon:

 “A lot of people confuse the sensual with the sexual, but the full Moon in Taurus can help you to identify the moment where they coalesce into a perfectly delicious dyad. When it comes to your sex life, invite in as much sensuality as you can muster — consider all five of your senses.

Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is known as the goddess of love. She is hovering ever-so-close to this full Moon, enhancing the romantic energy even more powerfully. You will definitely experience some deep, fully awakened desires this week.

 “Time to connect with the nurturing and supportive energy of Mother Earth and remember the peace that comes when we simply take a moment to breathe deeply and enter the stillness. Been a lot of energy churning in the cosmos, the easiest and simplest thing we can do to regain our balance is come back to our breath. Slow deep breaths open the way … so remember to breathe.”

 “Luckily, the Full Moon in Taurus provides the power of preservation — even as the Sun in Scorpio doles out its destructive forces. The Outdated You (the one you’ve clung to, or hidden behind) is preparing to fly the coop. Meanwhile the New You (the one you birthed back in 2012) can surge forth in ways that exceed all expectations. Remain vigilant. Expose yourself to the energies that support your success.”

 “What you do here on this full moon will carry you forward. So take advantage and set new patterns in any way you can. Do some clearing of anything that feels old and fearful. Become more aware of your resources especially the physical ones and take some time to be in great gratitude for what you do have and honor how those resources support you. Be creative in how you can take your present resources and use them to expand that container. Be open to the unknown resources that are just around the corner that may manifest in your reality if you allow them to. Watch for that shadow side that threatens to come up and obliterate your positivity. Embrace it and turn it into power through humor. Be with friends on this day as your community is a great support during these times.”

Another UFO on NASA live stream suggests ISS is under alien observation

The International Space Station’s (ISS) live stream has again captured what appears to be aUFO in close proximity. In a video uploaded to Youtube on November 3 by UFO Sightings Daily, the UFO slowly appears and disappears as the live stream camera is pointed earthward. A silhouette of the Earth can be seen above which the UFO slowly appears for approximately 70 seconds, and remains stationary relative to the ISS. The live stream then cuts to blue screen with a message saying that the live stream has temporarily stopped due to a change in cameras or a signal interruption. The latest UFO recording follows a string of UFO incidents near the ISS during the month of October. The November 3 and earlier October UFO video recordings raise the question of whether the ISS is being observed by an alien civilization.

In a November 3 post on UFO Sightings Daily, Scott Waring explains why he believes the UFO is not the moon, but another spacecraft observing the ISS:

I was watching the live space station cam and noticed this glowing object. I was recording at the time and at first thought it was the moon, but when I went back to look at how it suddenly appears I saw it wasn’t. The moon would move down from top to the Earths horizon…I saw it many times on live cam. This is different. This UFO just appears out of nowhere and disappears. It didn’t appear from the top of the screen and vanish behind the Earth as the moon always does. The space station is being observed. SCW

The November 3 UFO appears to be spherical in shape and displays several colors as it waxes and wanes. The 70 second duration of the UFO’s appearance suggests that Waring is correct that it is not the moon. It would take far longer for the moon to wax and wane as the ISS travelled around the Earth in its 90 minute orbit around the Earth. This can be seen in aJuly 16 live stream of the setting moon which slowly moves over the horizon unlike the UFO in the November 3 video which does not set. Furthermore, the UFO appears stationary relative to the ISS suggesting that it has a similar orbital path. This supports Waring’s conclusion that the UFO is observing the ISS.

Two live streaming incidents on October 6 and 21 showed what appeared to be elliptical cigar shaped UFOs in close proximity to the ISS. Further incidents on October 22 and 25showed spherical UFOs. The proximity of these previous UFOs during various station activities suggests that the UFOs were observing the ISS.

If Waring is correct that the ISS is being watched, then the follow up question is by whom? It’s possible that a foreign government not part of the ISS mission such as China may be monitoring ISS activities. It’s unlikely however that China or other foreign nations possess the technology to observe the ISS in the manner captured by the ISS live stream. An alternate explanation is that an extraterrestrial civilization may be monitoring the ISS, and allowing its craft to be captured on video.


Bizarre cloud spotted above seaside town, freaks everyone out

What do you think was seen in the sky, near Melbourne, Australia? -LW

On Monday at approximately 1 p.m., something strange happened in the small, seaside town of Wonthaggi. A resident by the name of Carol spotted an unidentified rainbow object in the sky.

Was it a doorway into another realm? Had the aliens finally arrived? Wonthaggi, 132 kilometres out of Melbourne, knew it must have a purpose — was this it?

Carol did what many residents would have done: she called radio station 3AW in a cry for help. By this stage, the town was in a panic, posting photos of various sightings on Twitter, begging for answers. It felt like it may be the final communication before the world reached its colourful end.

Fear not, humankind. Michael Efron from the Bureau of Meterology saved the day.

“It looks like a fallstreak cloud, also known as a punch hole cloud,” he told Fairfax Media.

“They form when the water temperature in the cloud is below freezing, but the water has not yet frozen due to a lack of ice nucleation particles. In this case, when the water does start to freeze, it falls down to the surface … so you’re left with this cloud surrounding it, this clear area.”

As you were, everyone.


Astrology Status for November 3, 2014, A Scary November if You Want it to Be

‘Scary’ November

November is a very, very cleverly disguised version of the pattern we’ve been seeing now for several months. We have a few clusters of hard, pointy – i.e., scary – aspects scattered among a mix of soft, twinkly aspects.

Some scary things will happen, though not as many or as scary as a lot of people fear. Other scary things will seem like they’re going to happen, but they won’t.

The hard pointy aspects will doubtless knock a few big chunks of hard karma loose. But things will not slip into chaos. Soon after, things will return to what seems to be the new normal.

 A New Mood

The new normal is a new, mixed mood. This mood blends optimism, uncertainty, and doubt. It is laced with fear and the occasional feeling of panic.  The fear arises partly from memories of recent hardship. It arises partly from the release into consciousness – the purging – of deeply ingrained negative patterns.

The harsh energetic conditions of recent years are too close behind. New, improved energetic conditions have yet to take hold. They are arriving toward the end of December, still a few weeks away. This current, transitional period, then, will bring continuing bouts of anxiety and emotional instability, individually and collectively.

The Worst That Can Be Said

The cumulative effects of our collective unease, coupled with the effects of the aspects themselves, could push any number of the political and economic crises currently simmering in the world into the red, at least momentarily.

Military tensions and military activity could flare. Perhaps we will see more temporary stock market gyrations.

Problematic natural conditions, like the drought in California or the lava flows in Hawaii, could turn critical, temporarily.

Nationally and internationally, I am expecting transient peaks of political and economic turbulence. However, it is highly unlikely that November’s astrological waves will capsize the big ships of state or tip the world into depression and war.

That simply is not what these vibes are about. I cannot stress this strongly enough. These astrological conditions will not support major, long-term adverse events. The worst we need fear are panic and ugly moods and their unfortunate effects on events.

On the individual level, we will almost certainly know or hear of individuals who suffer adversity. In most cases, though, despite the dark moods and scattered panic, November will most likely just rock our boats a bit without actually sinking any of them. In the end, November will confirm our hopes and validate our optimism, not our fears.

I don’t want to minimize the seriousness of the violence or adversity that will strike in November. November’s aspects, like those of previous months, will probe for economic, political and physical weakness. And it will find some.

November’s energies will test us emotionally and materially. But, when all is said and done, things will be nowhere near as bad as they might at first appear to us. And options will continue to develop.

 November’s Worst Moment

Consider November 9-13. The worst of November’s aspects occur over this time period. (All times are UT, Universal Time.)

  • Nov. 9th – Moon SEXTILE Uranus retrograde
  • Nov. 9th – Moon SEXTILE Jupiter
  • Nov. 9th – Venus square Jupiter
  • Nov. 10th – Moon TRINE Mercury
  • Nov. 10th – Moon TRINE Neptune retrograde
  • Nov. 10th – Mars conjunct Pluto
  • Nov. 11th – Moon opposite Pluto
  • Nov. 11th – Moon opposite Mars
  • Nov. 11th – Moon square Uranus retrograde
  • Nov. 11th – Moon TRINE Sun
  • Nov. 12th – Mercury TRINE Neptune retrograde
  • Nov. 12th – Moon TRINE Venus
  • Nov. 12th – Moon TRINE Saturn
  • Nov. 13th – Venus conjunct Saturn
  • Nov. 13th – Mars square Uranus retrograde
  • Nov. 13th – Moon square Mercury
  • Nov. 13th – Moon TRINE Uranus retrograde

 The ‘Bad’ News

There are 17 aspects over this five day period. Nine of these are positive (upper case), 8 are negative, broadly defined. Of the 8 negative aspects, four or possibly five (underlined), are likely to cause concrete negative events.

But notice that Uranus is retrograde, weakening its ability to cause concrete events in the outer world. While retrograde, Uranus is more likely to cause inner, subjective events or, perhaps, just heated discussion.

November’s negative aspects might trigger a short cascade of negative events related to October’s eclipses. They might be a few shades darker because of the coming Uranus/Pluto aspect, but not much.

The long-standing Uranus/Pluto square will be exact for the 6th time on December 15, about a week before Saturn enters Sagittarius. This Uranus/Pluto square was exact for the first time in June 2012. The last will be in March 2015.

The Uranus/Pluto square is really old news. This recurrence in December will be a faint echo of its first occurrence. It is highly unlikely to cause any lasting issues. We might not even notice its effects as anything out of the ordinary. It is unlikely to intensify the effects of November’s difficult aspects, much. Our darkish mood, however, could either intensify or exaggerate their ill effects.

The Good News

So, many factors will soften the effects of the bad aspects occurring around November 10th and 11th. Other influences strengthen the good aspects.

The 9 positive aspects are strengthened by the ongoing positive energy shift, and the retreat of the long series of admittedly harsh, disruptive aspects of recent years.

The long and the short of it is, as already noted, there will very likely be some negative events to mark the passing of these difficult aspects. However, we must understand them for what they are.

They are a small cluster of hard, pointy aspects floating in a generous mix of moody but soft and twinkly aspects. Also, they occur as the hard energies of recent years fade and the more supportive energies are about to come into effect.

Pick Your Mood

In recent months, it seemed that we could choose to see the positive or the negative potentials in our lives. In that way, we could choose success or failure, or temporary failure anyway.

What seems to me to be different about November is that both negative and positive interpretations of events will bring a positive outcome. There will be a positive outcome no matter how dark our mood or how pessimistic our mindset.

The hold of pessimism and negativity over our minds will weaken as the Saturn Sagittarius ingress approaches. It will be replaced by a more realistic, matter-of-fact approach to challenges The harsh aspects are losing their grip on the course of events.

Upcoming flight of NASA’s Orion spacecraft into space, proof that Moon landing never happened?

As far as I know, the Van Allen belt filters out harmful radiation from the sun. In the world of UFOs, it is absent over the north and south poles. During the space race, there were fears that missions to the moon punctured the Van Allen belt, thereby exposing us to harmful radiation. Why the sudden concern about the Van Allen belt? -LW

NASA’s newest spacecraft, Orion, will be launching into space for the first time in December 2014, on a flight that will take it farther than any spacecraft built to carry humans has gone in more than 40 years and through temperatures twice as hot as molten lava to put its critical systems to the test.

According to the video below, spacecraft Orion will test the Van Allen radiation belt first before they can send people through this region of space.

Listen carefully at around 3:36 what the man says: “We must solve this problem before we send people through this region of space” (the Van Allen radiation belt).

Didn’t they already send 6 manned crews through this region on the way to the moon in the Apollo missions?

If NASA is still working on testing the Van Allen radiation belt in order to solve that problem before they can send the astronauts through this region of space, than it is really amazing what the engineers of NASA in the 60’s and with the technology of the 60’s have done to solve that problem, leading to the first moon landing in ’69.

If the moon missions were real, then it seems the whole “the Van Allen radiation belt” problem should have been solved over 40 years ago and at least have landed on Mars by now and flown manned flights to one of Mars’ moons or even a flyby of Saturn or Jupiter.

After watching this video I have to seriously doubt that there were ever any “NASA” manned space flights to the moon.

Russia launches 1st Soyuz 2-1A rocket, heads to ISS

It seems that the US rocket that exploded had an engine from the Ukraine. How odd is that? -LW

A Soyuz-2.1a space rocket carrying a Progress M-25M resupplying ship was launched and placed on a transitional orbit on Wednesday, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said.

The rocket blasted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan at 10:09 a.m. Moscow time (0709 GMT). “Six hours after the blast-off the cargo ship is to dock with the International Space Station (ISS),” Roscosmos website said.

This is the first launch of the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket which has substituted the Soyuz-U-PVB rockets. First test of the new rocket was carried out in November 2004.

The Progress carries over 2.5 tons of cargo, including fuel, food, water and oxygen as well as various scientific equipment.

The resupplying ship is to dock ISS Russian segment at the height of about 400 km.

Earlier Wednesday, a US carrier rocket Antares driven by a Ukrainian engine exploded immediately over the launching pad in the state of Virginia. The Antares was supposed to deliver Cygnus cargo craft to the ISS U.S. segment.

Currently there are six people aboard the ISS, including three Russians, two Americans and one European.
