It looks like Iceland's second largest volcano Bárdarbunga is set to blow. Geologists are calling the volcano that went last year that shut down air-traffic all through Europe "tiny" compared to this one!
More information here: RSOE Emergency and Disaster Service information
Being that this volcano is located under the icecap of a glacier, if it blows how much more powerful or devastating will that make it.
Also, with all of the pole-shift news and activity lately, am I the only one who sees an increase in volcanic activity? Coincidence?
seriously...the ongoing debate is, is there more quake/volcano activity, or is it just better detected/reported (global media)? hard to say.
263 J. Ind. Geophys. U nion ( October 2005 ) Vol.9, No.4, pp.263-276 Planetary Configuration: Implications for Earthquake Prediction and Occurrence...
Though there have been several attempts at earthquake prediction from different perspectives, this attempt aims at establishing planetary configurations as a definitive means of earthquake prediction. When two or more planets, Sun and M oon are aligned more or less in line (0o or 180o) with the Earth, then the Earth would be caught in the middle of a huge gravity struggle between the Sun and the planets. T he gravitational stresses would change the speed of the Earth in its orbit and when the speed of rotation of the earth changes the tectonic plate motion also gets affected. T he total angular momentum of planets involved in earthquake triggering mechanism can be calculated and the total force acting at the epicenter in a direction opposite to that of the earth’s rotation can also be determined. At the epicenter, the speed of rotation of the earth can be calculated with the help of available software. So the planetary forces in the opposite direction to the rotation of earth act as a triggering mechanism for the accumulated stress at faults and plate boundaries to be released abruptly. T his does not, however, mean that earthquakes will occur at all edges of the plate boundaries. Two of the parameters contributing to the triggering of an earthquake at a place are a) distance of epicenter from the planet position and b) direction of force acting at the possible epicenter. From the analysis of “ significant earthquakes” over the past 100 years from all over the world and from Southern Peninsular India, the relationship between (i) latitude, longitude, and magnitude of the tremor and (ii) distance from the planet and direction of forces acting at any point can be inferred. Such inferences already made for different localities in other parts of world have unfolded an accuracy of more than 75% with regard to earthquake prediction.

I wonder if this is the sudden change that will alter Europe's landscape that Edgar Cayce was warning us about??

This is true, but it comes down to the old adage... "Where there's smoke, there's fire"
(Or in this case, where there's lava, there's fire!)
With the already harsh winter that europe is experiencing, imagine the problems that a full bore volcanic eruption like this would cause!

we've not had any snow here since before Christmas, which is quite remarkable.
