Solar Storms

What Are Solar Storms?

Solar storms are quick flashes of brightness that happen suddenly on the sun(our solar system). These flashes occur due to gaseous eruptions that explode. When a solar storm occurs, the sun is able to shoot out an intense amount of energy particles that are extremely hot and can travel for thousands of miles.  In addition, coronal mass ejections, or CMEs – giant bubbles of gas and magnetic fields from the sun – are able to travel from the sun as well. The amount of energy required to produce these explosions is so large that it can be extremely difficult to fully process it in our minds. With the solar energy equaling to approximately 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT, it’s safe to say that these explosions are quite epic. The last notable Solar Storm, was the Solar Storm of 1859 known as the Carrington Event. The viewing of this event took place in Australia. The Solar Storm of 2012 just missed earth, by approximately 9 days…

So Are Solar Storms Dangerous?

Solar storms produce intense bursts of radiation that is able to travel for hundreds of thousands of miles once released from the explosion. Those exposed to a solar storm can suffer greatly from both the energy & the radiation that these solar storms produce. Solar panels, solar systems, would essentially fail if they were to experience such an event.

Earth Is Safe… Mostly

Thanks to our lovely magnetosphere & atmosphere, those on the Earth’s surface are not exposed to the fatal doses of radiation and other forms of energy that solar storms shoot off into space. However, we do feel these solar storms on Earth in a few ways:

  1. Our Technologies – When CMEs reach Earth, they’re able to trigger something on Earth known as a geomagnetic storm. These storms disrupt telecommunications and navigation systems. They also have the capability to disrupt power-grids, which infamously occurred in March of 1989 on the eastern coast of North America.
  2. Our Moods When solar storms occur around the same time equinoxes – the process of the Earth and sun lining up so that day and night are approximately equal in length – their energy and radiation is able to slip through the temporary cracks in our atmosphere produced by the equinoxes.

Solar Storms & Our Moods

The tremendous amount of energy that lines up with our equinoxes can definitely begin to have an effect on the people of Earth.  Those who are affected by it exhibit a few symptoms:

  • Irritability
  • Fragile emotional state
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased attention span
  • Stress
  • Disturbed sleep patterns

These symptoms can be explained due to the powerful electromagnetic energies that we are exposed to when solar energies are able to pass through our atmosphere. While many will feel at most only slight symptoms, others experience such intense symptoms that they actually can feel as if they have entered a “new reality” as they leave their old selves behind.

How to Deal with Solar Storm Symptoms

To help ease the symptoms and get through the solar storm, you could perform the following actions:

  • Drink plenty of filtered water.
  • Meditate and remain aware of your thoughts & feelings.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol.
  • Take salt water
  • Consume high-vibrational foods, such as vegetables & fruit.
  • Perform breathing exercises.
  • Spend time outside in therapeutic natural environments.
  • Disconnect from technologies.


Next time, you may want to reconsider the next time laugh at your friend who refuses to make a decision until they consult their horoscope & the stars. Scientists have been working hard to make sense of the cosmic energy and how it causes anxiety and other physical ailments to those here on Earth.
