Since 2008 we have been in the middle of dismantling old cultural paradigms that no longer serve us so that new ones can come through in 2016. The sun is coming out of a parallel phase of high activity that peaked in 2013. Every eleven years the amount of solar activity, the number of large solar flares that happen over a given year, ramps up to markedly higher levels and then back down. Solar flares are bursts of light and electromagnetically charged plasma that erupt from the sun’s surface and blast out into space. If the sunspot emitting the burst is pointed toward Earth, we are in the direct line of fire for receiving this electromagnetic radiation. Most of us are familiar with the Aurora Borealis, these are created by these blasts from the sun interacting with the earth’s magnetosphere.
