First solar flare discovery


Above a drawing made by Richard Carrington in 1859 of the first solar flares mankind ever officially observed. He oberved them from his house, by way of projection on paper,  in Redhill, England, at 11.18 a.m. September 1, 1859. Therefor, this is the discoverychart of Solar Flares:

At the time of discovery, the Moon was opposite Pluto on the horizon, and more noteworthy even is the fact that the Moon was on almost 6 Scorpio, a degree the Moon has been on in more discoverycharts (of planets) ! So what is the nature of 6 Scorpio when occupied by the Moon (symbolizing the earth's people' here, that makes for astronomical discoveries?

The 6th degree of Scorpio, as per the chart above, has the following symbolic meaning  (Astrological Mandala, Rudhyar): The passionate SEARCH for NEW values which, at any level, promise a more abundant life. (Gambling everything on a vision or dream).

The 7th degree of Scorpio (as per some planet-discovery charts) : The will to explore the hidden depths of all experiences and to search for primordial causes.

Fascinating, isn't it?

Solar flares become more and more important, as they intervene with the earth's magnetosphere and create interruptions on Earth, which may even be symbolized by the Sun-90-Uranus (conj the 8th house cusp) in the solar flare discoverychart. These two planets rule South-and North Node. The natural order (South Node, Sun, Virgo) can be upset (Uranus, North Node). Saturn conjuncts the South, and Cheiron the North node, indicating that control of the natural order, again, is interfered with by changing time sytems (Cheiron, Aquarius).

Source of chart info: NASA and google:-)

Interestingly enough, at the end of the seven Pluto-Uranus squares mankind will reach Pluto physically, at least 10.000 kms close.
