Alanna Ketler – The sun is a big burning ball of fire and thus, energy. Really, everything is energy. We already know that it is the light and warmth of the sun that gives life to every living thing on this planet. We have already seen an example of how the sun’s energy can be utilized to create power with the rapidly increasing use of solar panels, but researchers from St. John’s College, University of Cambridge, have now discovered a new way to utilize energy from the sun and turn it into fuel. Yes fuel — the type of fuel that could directly compete with fossil fuels.
The researchers used semi-artificial photosynthesis to explore new ways to produce and store solar energy. Using natural sunlight to separate hydrogen and oxygen including the use of a combination of biological components and human made technologies.

New Moon is Sunday, September 9 at 12:01PM (MDT)
Lena Stevens – This moon is a good one for choices to release what does not intuitively feel good to you in your life. It may make mental sense to continue holding on, but listen to your heart on this one. There is some good energy as well for integrating all the new opportunities, wisdom and information that may have come into your field in the past few weeks.
Focus on personal tasks and tend to your immediate environment. This new moon pulls the energy inward so you can be with your own thoughts, feelings and decisions. Expansion will come later. Right now it’s time to follow through on your new inspirations and breakthroughs of the past few weeks. If you are still sitting on a pile of unfinished business, make a practical plan for completion and follow though.
Virgo New Moon Cycle
Sun and Moon in Virgo ~ 17º

Patricia Liles – Our lunar monthly reset in Virgo brings integration of mind, body, and spirit. ALL the planets (and most of the asteroids) are in yin signs ~ earth or water, feminine signs. New Moon Virgo brings to the fore our physical and emotional needs. We need to tend our gardens, focus on digestion whether it’s food or information, look to our storage areas, and trust our gut reactions. Continue reading “New Moon Update 9-9-18”
Sal Rachele – Greetings, dear friends, students and lightworkers. That time of year is once again upon us – a time of maximum light in the northern hemisphere and maximum darkness in the southern hemisphere. Of course, if you live near the equator, you might hardly notice the difference.
Like the outer cycles, we also have inner cycles – times when the light rushes into and through us and we remember, however briefly, that we are indeed expressions of God in material form – and then there are those times when the world seems to draw us into drama and trauma and we forget, for a moment, that we are One with our Creator. (Of course, this “moment” of forgetfulness can seem to span many lifetimes or aeons from a linear perspective.) Continue reading “Sal’s Solstice Message – June 2018”
Laura Walker – As the wave of the Mars-Pluto conjunction continues to pass today, let’s consider something else – the Sun.
And, to expand our imaginations, let’s look at it a different way. Let’s not look at it from the traditional Western astrological perspective, but from the perspective of the Sacred Calendar of the Sun, the knowledge of which was retained by the Maya and called the tzolkin.
Today is 7 Reed in the tzolkin. The Maya tell us that the number (7) is a tone that is emitted throughout our galaxy. It is a frequency. The Maya tell us that the sign (Reed) is our Sun’s specific addition to that frequency. It’s added on (carrier wave). Continue reading “Oracle Report Friday, April 27, 2018”
Sayer Ji – Sunlight is well-known to provide us vitamin D, but did you know that it kills pain, keeps us alert at night, burns fat and more…
Our biological connection and dependence to the sun is so profound, that the very variation in human skin color from African, melanin-saturated dark skin, to the relatively melanin de-pigmented, Caucasian lighter-skin, is a byproduct of the offspring of our last common ancestor from Africa (as determined by mitochondrial DNA) migrating towards sunlight-impoverished higher latitudes, which began approximately 60,000 years ago.
In order to compensate for the lower availability of sunlight, the body rapidly adjusted, essentially requiring the removal of the natural “sunscreen” melanin from the skin, which interferes with vitamin D production; vitamin D, of course, is involved in the regulation of over 2,000 genes, and therefore is more like a hormone, without which our entire genetic infrastructure becomes destabilized.
